How far would you go to save your local? Over the past 2 months, three popular Dalton Pubs have been up for rent/lease/ sale and one remains empty. Doing some research I came across this list of “hotels, inns, taverns and beer houses” in Dalton from 1882 and noticed all 4 were listed. Since the list on the left was compiled, the industry has changed an awful lot and yet Dalton has managed to keep a large proportion of the pubs at the centre of its community for all those years, despite the odds. For a long time, large breweries posed a threat for small community pubs and independent brewing companies were forced to close down production. An interesting turn of events has seen these independent breweries start up again, branding themselves as micro-breweries as modern day Britain gets a taste for real ale. Helped by an excise duty relief that recently came in to play, micro-breweries can effectively half their tax bill by sticking below a certain production limit ( approx 3,000 barrels a year). This change in the law has put independent breweries on a more even playing field, but what has been done to protect the pubs they supply? Dalton was once rumoured to have more pubs in a square mile than anywhere else in the UK, whether there’s any truth in that I’m not sure. Either way, the North West is currently losing two pubs per week - the fastest rate of closure since the number of pubs was first tracked in 1990. Now entering what has been labelled a double dip recession, the ‘age of austerity’ is not over yet and Britain’s pubs are once again feeling the full force. The question is, what can we do about it? The answer may lie in a trend that is taking

hold of the countries favourite pubs and eateries; buying your local. Recent reports have boasted that ‘community ownership now saves 10% of rural shops/pubs that would have otherwise closed’ Britain’s first co-operatively owned pub was set in the picturesque Cumbrian village of Hesket Newmarket. The Old Crown dates back to the 18th century and has long been supplied by its local brewery but economic factors threatened to change all that in 2002. Fears arose amongst the pub’s loyal locals that it might fall into the hands of a ma jor brewery or chain, and so they decided to take action. The pub is now owned by more than 100 ‘locals’ and described as “just a great British institution doing what it does best”. For the small village this move has certainly been a success and many more communities have followed suit since, including those in more urban areas. Is a co-operative Pub something that would work in Furness? What effect did the smoking ban have on your local? Are drink prices too high? We’d love to hear your views.

A country activity – touting a gun

coming towards you (slightly harder), and then in both directors in sequel (plain confusing). I don’t think I did myself a disservice as I would estimate I hit 75% of them out of my 25 shot allocation.

Before Christmas I got the chance to go to Holmescales Activity Centre just outside of Oxenholme. If you remember I got challenged to drive a tank, which was fantastic.

I would suggest that this activity is a good parent/teenager bonding session, or an ideal but quirky first date. It is something I imagine most people may be able to pick up quite easily unless you have zero coordination! I would certainly come back to try it again, and actually bought my Dad a voucher for an hour lesson at Christmas.

Well, on the same day I also tried my hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting for the first time. Our instructor George was great. He’d been shooting most his life and was an amazing tutor. I have never shot a gun before, let alone had a go at aiming at clays, so imagine my surprise when I hit a ma jority of them!

Holmescales Activity Centre offers everything from corporate parties, stag and hen dos, and smaller groups. Check out the website if you want to try something new: www.holmescales.com

The gun was a lot heavier than I thought it would be, but I did not feel the recall of the gun as much as my Dad had warned me about. Perhaps I’m made of tough stuff…

‘Top Mum Mulled Wine’ 20’swith Janet Newton. Nothing brings warmth to a cold winter’s night like a delicious warm mug of mulled wine! Seeing as though 20 is staffed by us young folk we thought we’d turn to our parents for inspiration on this one. Step forth Janet Newton with her expertise in Mulled Wine! For this recipe you’ll need the following ingredients. Base Ingredients: 1 Bottle of Red Wine – It’s not too important what type, at 20 we’re using Hardy’s 2009 Vintage Cabernet Merlot to give a nice smooth finish. 1/2 Pint Fruit Juice – For this you can either use Orange or Cranberry, or a mix of both. Sugar – Add sugar to taste. We recommend a decent table spoon to start. Either 1/4 Pint of Brandy or 1/4 Pint Dark Rum & Muscovado Sugar Spices: 5 Inch Stick Cinnamon 4-6 Cardamom Pods 1 Star Anise Small Hand Full Juniper Berries Chopped Fresh Ginger 2-4 Cloves Nutmeg Fruit: 1 Apple & 1 Orange Tinned Black Cherries (optional) Red Currant or Bramble Smooth Jelly (Optional)

For the first recipe, using brandy, you’ll need to start by adding the wine, fruit juice, sugar, spices and sliced fruit and tinned black cherries into a large pan. Warm them slowly and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Near the end of this time add the brandy to the mix for the last few minutes. Sieve the liquid and serve warm for that festive feeling! The second recipe results in a slightly thicker mulled wine with a deeper flavour. Start by warming a smooth red currant or bramble jelly in a pan with muscovado sugar and fruit juice until it dissolves into a smooth liquid. Add your wine and 1/4 Pint of Dark rum, the darker the better. We recommend Captain Morgan’s for an easy affordable option. Also add your spices and sliced apples and oranges to the mix and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Sieve the liquid and serve warm, delicious! The main thing to remember about a mulled wine is to play around with it, make your own little tweaks and changes to make it perfect for you! Try adding tea leaves to give it a change of flavour, or use whisky instead of brandy or rum. Merry Christmas from everyone at 20! Chris Shaw & the 20 team with Janet Newton

You’ll also need a large pan.

The hair itself will be donated to Little Princess Trust who provide wigs for children suffering from hair loss following cancer treatment or from other causes.

ROTARY

Furness Peninsula goes from strength to strength

President Terry Henshaw said ‘The club goes from strength to strength. Our members have shown tremendous commitment in raising funds to help others, although Rotary is a lot more than that. In addition to the fundraising we have social events such as a trip to the Prince of Wales at Foxfield, Treasure Hunts, beach cleans. Rotary for us is about helping others but having fellowship and fun at the same time. We never get bored!’

Local Rotarians are celebrating the success of their young club, and the results of their fundraising events, by giving donations to local charities, returning to the community the generous support by the public. The Rotary Club of Furness Peninsula has organised or supported over 112 local events including quiz nights, Christmas Fayres, Car Boot sales, fashion shows, and a fire walk.

The club is always searching for new members, and anyone who would like to know more is welcome to visit Michaelson House on a Thursday evening. The meeting is 6.30 for 7. Further details can be found on www.furnesspeninsula. rotary1190.org

Recently the Officers of Club presented cheques for £500 each to the Croft Care Trust Hawcoat Lane Barrow, the Furness Multiple Sclerosis Society, Ostley House Home for the Blind and the Furness branch of the Parkinsons Society.

The ever witty Andrew Shaw joins us to share his views on the latest film releases.

As good as Condon is, the film is still based on wretched source material, so the plot meanders as if written by someone who has never read a story in their life (this is possible) and characters do things that would be illegal, if not based in a fantasy setting.

Breaking Dawn marks the first half of a truly insane final chapter to the saga (How insane? Spoiler: The shirt-allergic werewolf falls in love with a baby).

Breaking Dawn may be the best Twilight yet but it remains a bad movie; as slow, tedious and poorly acted as every other film in the series. However, the times they get something right transform it into something deranged, hysterically silly and entertaining.

Director Bill Condon, a devotee of James Whale’s classic Frankenstein movies, has a good instinct for gothic camp and can successfully tap into the underlying absurdity of Stephanie Meyer’s crackpot tome. Throughout the film, Condon creates some surprisingly beautiful and macabre images for the film’s meagre 12A rating.

Filled with over the top drama and heightened emotion, Breaking Dawn Part 1 seems like a great approximation of what Twilight fans feel when they experience the series. If you are a fan, this is exactly what you want. If you’re not a fan, you will have to gauge your own morbid curiosity and go from there.

Between these marvelous visual flourishes, Condon pitches the entire film at the volume of a teenage mood swing. It’s big, unreasonably serious and devoid of all subtlety. Exactly how this series should be handled.

MUM ON THE RUN This much we know

As parents of young children, this much we know: ••

••

All new parents must undergo the initiation test of putting on baby grows and discovering that there always seems to be an extra popper on one of the legs. There are some baby bowel movements that no human nappy could contain, even if it was made from Kevlar and gaffer tape. If your child is going to smack themselves in the face with a wooden block and get a black eye, or develop a cough that sounds like a Victorian tuberculosis victim’s, they will do so the day that your Mother-in-Law or the Health Visitor is coming round. Conversely, as soon as you arrive at the doctor’s appointment that

you only got by pleading with the Receptionist about how urgent it was, your child will stage a miraculous recovery from whatever symptoms have been worrying you for the last 48 hours, giggle into the stethoscope and make you look like a silly, over-fussy parent. When they say they definitely don’t need the potty before they go out, they are lying. The more care you’ve put into making a meal, the further they will spit their first mouthful. The fastest way to stop your children when they’re doing something cute or clever is to get a camera out. Or ask them to show somebody else. Children will always save their loudest embarrassing questions or investigation into the art of nosepicking for special occasions like weddings. It’s being in their best clothes that tips them off. All mummies are “Yummy Mummies”. It’s just that some of us have only had 2 and a half hours sleep and porridge sneezed into our hair this morning. Once your child makes that important step towards independence and learns to dress themselves, they lose all sense of seasonality: “My swimsuit, wellies and a glittery scarf from the dressingup box? In December? Perfect!” The more important the phone call, the louder the noise your child will make. Irritating sales caller? Reverent hush. Prospective employer with a dream job offer? Strike up the saucepan band and let’s all shout about needing the potty ‘now because it’s a big one.’ Putting amusing objects on your child’s head as a ‘hat’ never stops being funny. A banana and a handful of nuts is a healthy way to give yourself an

energy boost. But chocolate is the only way you’ll actually survive a wet Wednesday afternoon. Furthermore, it is possible to consume a whole packet of biscuits without your toddler noticing, you simply have to learn a number of covert, ‘Mission Impossible’ style techniques. Baby-free friends may shudder at the thought, but with enough practise, not being woken until 8am really can count as ‘a massive lie-in’. The first time they try to watch an important match with a toddler around, fathers realise why men escape to the pub to watch sport even though the telly isn’t as good and the seats not as comfy. There’s no such thing as a perfect parent, but we all try as hard as we can to be one.

A week in the life of a Christmas Elf!

lights and decorations is challenge enough without competing with it aesthetically.

“Christmas is a very special occasion… and without going so far as to try to out sparkle the Christmas tree, it is perfectly appropriate for you to make a special effort to create a splendid appearance...”

Tina Henshall is no exception. She runs fabulous confectionary establishment, Samovar of Ulverston by day and manages a shift as a Christmas elf at Santa’s Village by night, so through December she is pulling out all the stops. By the 24th, once the last chocolate box has been sealed and the sleigh is loaded with presents, Tina can finally let down her hair and get into the Christmas spirit.

I couldn’t agree more with Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, who wrote ‘A Guide to Elegance: For every woman who wants to be well and properly dressed on all occasions’ in 1964 and evidently knows a thing or two about style. Christmas is a wonderful time of year and well worth sartorial effort.

So what does a Christmas elf wear in her well-earned week off between Christmas and the New Year? Like any other uniform wearer, Tina is glad not to have to don her curly boots and pointy hat and is delighted to wear anything but green and red. Christmas is a time to be glamorous yet comfortable; we want to look fabulous and have fun and not have to think twice about it. Here Tina models her Christmas week wardrobe:

However, I wonder what Genevieve might have thought of the ladies of 2011 who for many being well and properly dressed means remembering to zip up your jeans and change your underwear. For working women and busy mums sometimes turning a garment inside out is easier than putting it through the wash and assembling a Christmas tree intact with functioning
