No one knows for certain how April got its name, but it may have come from the Latin word 'aperire' which means 'to open' because it represents the opening of buds and flowers in spring. And for many of us, the change in season from winter to spring is marked when bare tree branches suddenly burst into life.

However To mark the start of the motorcycle season Bike 4 Life - Bikefest and Ride Out is taking place on April 26 at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford. The event is promoting road safety and you will have the chance to meet the crew from Midlands Air Ambulance, join in with special motorbike displays, buy souvenirs and enjoy live music and good food. You can find out more on page 16. Happy reading Maggie

Cloudy2Clear Windows – Service With A Smile! It’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Brian Stanley feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with

a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’

Cloudy2Clear service Kingswinford, Wordsley and Wall Heath areas and Brian is finding that his approach is a major factor in his success. ‘The truth is that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of

business from friends and family of people I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Brian a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

a great value day out

WESTON PARK If you are looking for a great value day out this early May Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday, then look no further than a visit to Weston Park which is hosting its springtime Plant Hunters' Fair.

A great value entrance price of just £3.00 (per person) for this special event includes entry to the gardens, parkland and the great Plant Hunters' Fair: that is less than half the standard entry price! Weston is an award winning stately home set in 1000 acres of ‘Capability Brown’ parkland much of it wooded and planted with spring bulbs, bluebells, azaleas and rhododendrons. Near the house there is an Italian Parterre and formal gardens. Weston Park was gifted to the nation in 1986 by the 7th Earl of Bradford and is now in the care of the Weston Park Foundation. All profits generated go towards the on-going preservation and conservation of the estate.

The plant fair is held on The Dairy Green, there is an impressive line-up of specialist nurseries at the event each with its own unique range of plants including many little gems you just won’t find at a larger gardener centres. Weston Park makes a great family treat, Children can go wild in the woodland adventure playground with its slides, zip wire, cargo net and miniature railway.

When you have worked up an appetite the Deli and Cafe is just the place to stop off or enjoy lunch in the Granary Grill, Bar & Restaurant. The House will be open from 1pm and costs an extra £2.00 so why not visit and take a look at the fabulous art collection and learn more about the history of the estate. The team of volunteer guides will happily enlighten you with information as well as offer anecdotes from times gone by. There is plenty for children to explore in the House through a selection of trails.

The Plant Hunters’ Fair on Sunday and Monday 3rd and 4th May has become a magnet for plant lovers from near and far.

6

The plant fair and gardens are open from 10am until 5pm each day, so why not have the perfect Bank Holiday with a day out that won't break the bank.

Weston Park is on the A5 just off the A41. Visit: www.weston-park.com

COMPUTERS

FOR RETIREES AND DISABLED USERS It is true that everything we do today revolves around the internet, the ease and advantages it has given us over the last decade is astonishing.

BY MIKE BROOKS

Here is why owning, using and taking advantage of technology when you retire and if you have a disability really makes a lot of sense. TRAINING Courses are either free or heavily subsidised, thus training is cheaper than ever. Colleges, schools, libraries and community centres all have facilities for training and do adult education. SHOPPING Anything can be ordered online these days, clothes, cars, food shopping, Christmas presents, you browse, click the buy it button, enter your address and card details, its delivered to your front door within days DOCTORS’ APPOINTMENTS We all know the phone lines are very busy, it literally takes minutes to book online. REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS Login, select the prescription you need, its ready to collect from your chosen pharmacy. HOLIDAYS Booking holidays and accommodation is easy too. You can read reviews and complaints about resorts, hotels and attractions. EMAIL Compose your letter, with added help like spell checker, fonts, attach pictures etc. Email is delivered within minutes, not days! SKYPE Keep in touch with friends and family from anywhere including overseas, with audio and video and reduce your phone bill. MAPS If you are planning a journey, you can use interactive maps that show the quickest, shortest or traffic avoiding route, it can also show you things to see and do along the way. SOCIAL MEDIA Keep up to date with your children or grandchildren by following them on social media.

VILLAGER MAGAZINE

ASK YOURSELF THESE 5 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

ABOUT YOUR PENSION 1 – How long will my money have to last?

We now tend to live longer. An average 65 year old in good health is expected to live for another 24 years and one in four people could now live to see their 95th birthday. Our retirement savings are going to have to last us for a long time – perhaps 30 years or more. Leaving them where they are for longer could make a big difference to our lifestyle in old age.

2 – How much will my State Pension be?

Most people will be entitled to an old age pension provided by the State. The amount of this pension is not the same for everyone and will depend on your employment history and when you were born. Remember the State Pension is designed to cover only a very basic standard of living without any luxuries.

By JPA

Financial Services Ltd

3 – How can I minimise my tax bill?

Most people enjoy a personal income tax allowance each tax year and this usually changes each year. You should think about taking your retirement savings in a way which makes the most use of your personal tax allowance so you don’t have to pay tax unnecessarily.

4 – Am I being scammed?

Unfortunately, there are some dodgy people around who would love to get their hands on your money and some people have already lost most of their retirement savings through scammers. Be very wary if someone is encouraging you to take your retirement savings See ov or invest your money with them. If what they are out mo offering you seems too good to be true; it almost certainly is!

5 – Where do I go to get more help?

Financial Services Ltd As local Independent Financial Advisers Our aim is to provide Financial Advice for

everyone FREE Initial Review Pension Review Retirement Planning Investments & Savings ISA’s Child Savings Plans Mortgages & Re-mortgages Life Cover Critical Illness For a confidential, no obligation discussion contact the JPA team

Tel. 01384 918158

14

The value of the investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back as much as you put in. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Taking your retirement savings is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly. Make sure that you at least contact your pension plan provider for details about your options and read your plan booklet. After that, we would always recommend contacting an authorised, regulated, independent financial adviser, who will be able to help you to create a full and structured plan for your retirement.

WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT JPA? We hold a weekly Open surgery at our offices in Market Street, Kingswinford every Saturday morning 10.00am to 12 noon for a no-obligation review of your pensions and investments. Please contact the office to secure your appointment. Tel: 01384 918158 or email us at jpafinancialservicesltd@gmail.com BY ENGAGING JPA TODAY YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A MORE SECURE TOMORROW

Mum of three Charlotte Lloyd suffered serious injuries in a road traffic collision while on a motorbike just under a year ago and, as she continues her recovery, she’s praised the “vital” contribution Midlands Air Ambulance made to ensuring she received urgent medical attention.

Bike4Life Organisers Highlight the Importance of Road Safety

Bikers from Shropshire and the wider Midlands area are invited to start the season in style on Sunday 26th April at the Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival.

Bike4Life Festival is being held at the RAF Museum Cosford in support of the Midlands Air Ambulance charity. The event is being run in collaboration with the Safer Roads Partnership and West Mercia Police and this year is being supported by radio station Planet Rock and is set to be the biggest organised biker gathering in the Midlands this year. Biker Safety is one of the main focuses of the day and there will be the opportunity to speak to The Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists (IAM), Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and other trainers to find out more about further training and additional courses that are out there to brush up on your biking skills. There is also the opportunity to sign up on the day for a special offer of a Take Control training course – book with a mate and get the course for half price. The importance of biker safety is paramount for all partners involved with Bike4Life and the Air Ambulance in particular are fully aware of the role they play in assisting bikers at the most crucial of times.

39-year-old Charlotte suffered a broken leg and elbow when she, as a pillion, and her partner, Marc, were involved in the accident in the Midlands in June 2014. She had been preparing to start a new job the following day when the pair set out on their motorbike on a sunny afternoon and travelled down the Pennine Way, B5080 in Tamworth to meet her younger brother. Suddenly, after missing its turning the car travelling in front performed an emergency stop. As the road surface was very badly broken, the wheels of the bike weren’t able to grip. As the bike started to snake badly, Charlotte was thrown into the air before landing in the road. The Midlands Air Ambulance helicopter from Tatenhill was dispatched to the scene, with paramedic, Ian Walley, among the aircrew. Charlotte recalled: “There was a lot going on at the scene and as well as being in a lot of pain I felt very sick. I remember Ian introducing himself to me. He and the rest of the aircrew played a vital part on the day as they got me to hospital so quickly. They worked really well with the land ambulance and explained everything to me and were really comforting and patient, and warned me it might be a little noisy. I was in so much pain and, up to that point; I wasn’t responding to anything I’d been given to try and make that better.” As Charlotte was experiencing such extreme pain, the aircrew were able to administer advance relief at the roadside before she stabilised and airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Now back home, she is slowly recovering from her injuries but admits the incident had a massive impact on her life. She added: “I had never been to hospital before and had to stay for a week, undergoing scans and a session in theatre. I’m still attending physiotherapy appointments there and am awaiting a date for more surgery. Even now I still cannot walk properly or do certain things, and I do find it quite frustrating sometimes.”

The 23 mile Ride Out is expected to attract over 3,000 bikers

However, she was still determined to meet the aircrew who helped her when she needed it most to offer her appreciation and, after travelling to Tatenhill and spending time with the team. Charlotte continued: “I met up with Ian just because I wanted to thank him and what he did and all of the emergency services did for me that day. I had already known that a lot of bikers are airlifted by Midlands Air Ambulance but I can now truly say that they do fantastic work and help save a lot of lives. With hundreds of bikers already signed up, organisers are expecting thousands will show their support on the day and join in the fun, so, if you’re a biker and you’re not already registered for the Ride Out or just want to find out more visit www.bike4lifefest.com or call the Bike4Life Festival team on 01902 376 252. Find us on Facebook by searching for Bike4Life Fest and follow us on Twitter @Bike4LifeFest.

The event will feature various trade stands, bike dealers, arena displays, live music at the Planet Rock stage with plenty to entertain the non-bikers of the family!

The festival will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm and visitors of all ages, not just bikers are encouraged to come along. Bikers wishing to participate in the ride out MUST have a full licence as the route to the Museum will travel along the M54 motorway. Bikers can find out more information on the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity by visiting www.midlandsairambulance.com or for more information on the RAF Museum Cosford visit www.rafmuseum.org. Further details about the Safer Roads Partnership can be found at www.srpwestmercia.org.uk

COMPETITION

BASED ON THE BEST-SELLING NOVEL by John Boyne, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a heart-wrenching tale of an unlikely friendship between two innocent boys. This production is at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th June.

Set during World War II, the story is seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and devastating consequences. Bruno's friendship with Shmuel takes him from innocence to revelation, revealing the poetic irony that through a child’s eye everyone can appear the same. Brought to you by The Children’s Touring Partnership who have previously produced Swallows and Amazons and Goodnight Mister Tom, this world premiere of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on stage, promises to be a deeply moving and thought provoking production.

GARDENING BY MARTIN BLOW

Fabulous Phlox BORDER PHLOX are old fashioned plants with a bright new future as gardeners switch to perennials with great scent, hardy disposition and minimal care requirements. They can give years and years of service in the herbaceous or mixed border and provide a wonderful, scented summer display. Phlox hate being in pots so buy in spring and plant out before they become root-bound. They also hate being in greenhouses so avoid “pumped-up” plants forced on in heat. We’re all guilty of impulse buys (how else have I ended up with over 70 varieties of Phlox in the garden) but before planting out, stop and think. Phlox are very long-lived plants and although easy to move they will always leave behind roots that will send up new plants – so plan where you want them to grow first. The ideal site is sunny, with rich, well-dug soil with perhaps a little late afternoon shade to protect them from the extremes of summer heat. In practice they get full sun or light shade in my garden and do pretty well in either.

BORDER PHLOX

Make a great show in the Summer

Border Phlox are incredibly hardy and start to show new growth in February. The new leaves are often attractively coloured but only a few varieties maintain these coloured leaves into summer, the others gradually turn green. Good coloured leaf types include Starfire, Blue Paradise and Logan Black. Variegated Phlox have lovely white and green or cream, red and green leaves throughout the summer to compliment the flowers.

26

MAUDE STELLA DAGLEY

Enriching the soil with compost dug into the top 1ft of soil will do wonders for the plants. I find the chalk in mushroom compost helps to reduce mildew problems. I always give my Phlox a good dressing with a well-balanced fertiliser like Growmore in spring followed by blood, fish and bone in mid-summer. Also give the plants some space if possible to improve air circulation; plant border phlox about 2ft apart.

To advertise call 01384 274608 / 07726 790233 - villagermagazine.co.uk


Water the ground not the plant and try and use water at air temperature (say from a water butt, or a can filled a few hours before) rather than an icy blast from a hosepipe. Phlox are often recommended as candidates for the “Chelsea Chop” – the practice of cutting plants by about half their height around the time of Chelsea Flower Show to create bushier, later flowering plants. I rarely do this: instead I remove spent flower head in late July and into August to encourage side shoots to flower.

Phlox make good cut flowers – cut in the morning and remove the lower leaves. At the end of the season cut down the stems to ground level and put them in the council green waste bin rather than the compost heap to avoid carrying any pests or diseases from season to season. There are 100’s of varieties to choose from and often it’s the old, heritage varieties that are new to our nursery range as they are “rediscovered” growing in happy neglect in an old garden. In recent years we have reintroduced the old German varieties Sternhimmel (Starry Sky) and Lavendelwolke (Lavender Cloud) to go with Monte Cristallo and Kirchenfürst plus a brand new English variety raised by Terry Dagley and named Maude Stella Dagley. Once you’ve grown border Phlox you will be hooked by the beauty of the flowers and the heady scent on a summer’s evening.
