The Kingswinford Study Centre is offering a two-week Free Trial between 1 September 31 October for all new students. Your child can experience how the Kumon Maths and English Programmes help children of any age and ability to become confident, independent learners with a positive attitude to study.

To celebrate this offer and to learn more about the Kumon maths and English programmes and Free Trial, the Kingswinford Study Centre will be holding Open Events every Saturday throughout September and October in 'The Bungalow' at Crestwood School, Bromley Lane (Kingswinford), between 12.30pm and 2.30pm.

WALL HEATH TANDOORI UNVEILS

glamorous refurbishment Iconic local restaurant Wall Heath Tandoori has re-opened to the public following a £60K refurbishment ll ready a firm favourite for many local

A people Wall Heath Tandoori known by many as Rocky’s has recently unveiled its new look, inside and out.

The restaurant has now had a decidedly modern makeover.

All of the restaurant chefs have many years of experience and apply a modern sense of adventure and refinement, when creating their fabulous dishes. The menu is truly amazing, there are all of the classic dishes; and the usual tasty sundries, and for the more adventurous there are exotic dishes that you will be excited to try. Dishes range from very mild to super spicy so there is a dish to appeal to every palate.

Striking, bold signage, with clean lines to the front of the building on High Street, Wall Heath, means it can’t be missed when passing by. Inside the 60 seater restaurant the bar has been revamped and displays a fabulous choice of beers, wines and spirits, the restaurant has been opened up and the grey and white decor is complemented by subtle ‘colour changing’ lighting effects to enhance your dining experience.

The restaurant's owner, Rocky, has been running Wall Heath Tandoori for over 20 years and his newly refurbished restaurant still offers a friendly and personalised service. Catering for couples, families and all types of celebrations you can enjoy a romantic meal for two, a bite to eat before a night out or a family celebration. Diners can order a selection of beers, wines spirits or soft drinks from the restaurant's well-stocked, reasonably priced bar.

Protecting the elderly from

FINANCIAL ABUSE by JPA Financial Services Ltd Scammers are increasingly targeting older people, with many of the crimes they commit involving bank account fraud or the selling of bogus or unsuitable investments. Although cold calling is to be banned, the elderly can still be contacted in other ways, so its important that their interests are protected. to the Alzheimer’s Society A ccording 850,000 people in the UK are living

with dementia, with numbers expected to rise to over one million by 2025. The advice from charities caring for the elderly is that everyone should plan for a time when they might not be able to make important decisions about their welfare or ďŹ nances.

HOW LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY (LPAS) CAN HELP LPAs have become much more common in the last decade, not least because ďŹ nance guru Martin Lewis has said he has already taken this step and he’s in his 40’s and believes everyone should consider using LPAs to safeguard themselves and their families. LPAs are designed to protect you if you lose the ability to make ďŹ nancial decisions or care decisions on your own behalf. Making an LPA allows you to choose someone you know and trust, called your ‘attorney’, to make important decisions should you be unable to do so.

With a Property and Financial Aairs LPA, your attorney has the power to make decisions about money matters on your behalf. Your attorney(s) can be relatives or friends, your spouse or partner, or a professional adviser. Without an LPA in place, if you were to lose mental capacity, your friends and family wouldn’t have automatic legal right to step in and take decisions on your behalf. Instead they would need to apply for Deputyship to the Court of Protection, an expensive and time-consuming process.

If you would like some guidance, then it’s time to talk to us for professional advice     

We hold a weekly Open surgery at our oďŹƒces in High Street, Kingswinford every Saturday morning from 10.00am to 12 noon for a complimentary review of your pensions and investments. Please contact the oďŹƒce to secure your appointment. Tel: 01384 918158 or email: jpaďŹ nancialservicesltd@gmail.com

Burnets for the Border by Martin Blow of Special Perennials Salad burnet is a well-known herb nowadays, used as a sharp, refreshing ingredient for a summer salad, but recently I’ve fallen in love with its bigger and more exotic looking cousins for growing in the flower border. These are not edible but have lovely flowers and leaves. urnets, or Sanguisorbas to use their

B proper name, come in a wide range of heights and spreads and are easy plants to

grow, flowering on and off through the summer. They come in shades of red, pink and white and many have large impressive flowers. Perhaps the showiest is the variety Lilac Squirrel whose long, dangling, feather-boa flowers in glowing lilac pink adorn the 3-4ft (90-120cm) tall plants from July to September. Like most Sanguisorbas the leaves are very attractive from the moment they unfurl like a fern frond in March until they die back in winter. Lilac Squirrel looks lovely paired with fuchsia pinks like Phlox Flamingo or the rose pink of Achillea Pretty Belinda. The more upright flowers of the variety Hakusanensis are a softer pink, and the pure white flowers of the Japanese Burnet (Sanguisorba obtusa alba) grow on plants that are just 2ft / 60cm tall. Other burnets have smaller, less showy flowers but more of them at a time and often held tall on waving stems that rarely need staking. It is on these smaller flower heads that you can begin to see that burnets are members of the rose family – each tiny floret on the tight heads of flower resembles the shape and structure of a dog rose but in tiny miniature. This gives us some clues to what they like in the way of sun, soil and moisture. Ideally, they prefer a deep, rich, soil that holds some moisture in the summer.

In reality they also cope with my poor, dry sand pretty well. They like some sun, but light, part or dappled shade is fine. One of the loveliest is also one of the tallest the deep red Arnhem is 5ft / 150cm tall and in peak flower in early summer. The flowers are lovely when paired with white, like the early flowering white Phlox David. Pink Elephant is tall, and a soft shade of pink, Burr Blanc and Canadensis are white and all of these look wonderful waving in the breeze at the back of the border. For the front of the border, Rock and Roll is a good choice as he stays to around 2ft / 60cm tall and there’s even a variegated one with red flowers and green and cream leaves called Shiro Fukurin. Sanguisorbas are tough and hardy and form bigger clumps each year; indeed, some like Tanna can be a little invasive. You can divide them in spring but be warned an old clump has a very tough rootstock and is difficult to break up. They benefit from a light feed in spring and an occasional feed until August. We’ve not noticed any particular pests or diseases affecting them in the garden so all in all they are quite easy to grow. Allow 2-2 ½ ft / 60-75cm between the taller varieties and a bit less for the short ones. Sanguisorbas are becoming very popular with nurseries and garden designers so you should find a good number of varieties available to choose from.
