Malvern’s cycling sensation Evie Richards has been formally recognised for her Commonwealth Games success by members of Malvern Hills District Council. The 21-year-old represented Team England at the games on Australia’s Gold Coast and claimed a silver medal in the women’s mountain bike cross country race. In honour of her achievement, Malvern Hills District Council invited Evie to attend Tuesday’s Annual Council meeting (8 May) so they could formally congratulate her. She was also presented with a special certificate of recognition on behalf of the people of the district. Speaking after the meeting Evie said the support she had received from her home town

ommunity News had been amazing. She said: “I can’t believe how much it means to everyone, and I just want to thank everyone for being so behind me.” Cllr Chris O’Donnell, who made the presentation as one of the last acts in her role as Chairman, said: “Evie is not only a fantastic role model and ambassador for her sport and her country but for Malvern and this district too. “We are incredibly proud of Evie and wish her continued success both in and away from the sporting arena. I hope her exploits will inspire the next generation of Evie Richards’ to realise their dreams.”of the club’s sinking fund and a £9,000 grant from Severn Waste Environmental Fund. The club chose Tiger Turf Clay Court Pro contracted through Chiltern Sports. Drama and Nursing Collaboration Leads to Performance at International Conference Students and staff at the University of Worcester have imparted the lessons learned from a collaboration between Drama and Nursing at a

major international nursing conference. Drama undergraduates worked with nursing experts from the University to develop a workshop to teach effective communication around children’s end of life care to student nurses.The workshop was delivered to a wider audience at the RCN International Nursing Research Conference. The project started last year, when the departments of Drama and Nursing combined forces to produce a workshop with both taught and practical sessions. A participatory performance, which included a range of situations involving a communication problem, was developed by the drama students in conjunction with the expert advice of Nursing experts at the University. The performance included scenarios that were based on the reallife experiences of children’s palliative and end of life care faced by final year student nurses during their training.people with complex disabilities.

Moving Home? Read These Tips! As someone who has moved a lot more than the average households 8 times in a lifetime, here is my top 5 tips. •Ensure that all parties are ready to move. – Double check and treble check with your solicitor, landlord, removal company, that you are all ready to move on the same date and time. Last thing you want is for you to ring your removal company and find out that they have double booked! At the end of the day it will be you who is looking for a bed and breakfast for somewhere to stay the night, not them! • Pack early. It always takes longer than you think! • Start with rooms you least need. If you have a spare room or items in the loft – start packing them – if you’re moving in the summer – you won’t be needing your Christmas decorations any time soon, so pack them up • Pack one room at a time. This keeps your house neat and tidy and more importantly liveable whilst you prepare for the move • Declutter. It’s always good to declutter so what better time to offload all those items you haven’t used since the last time you moved! •And finally make sure you put some essentials in a bag so you know that once you have put all the boxes into your new home, you can sit down and have a brew without having to look through all the boxes to find a cup and the tea bags!

Make The Most Of Your Garden Summer has arrived, its time to make the most of your garden! After spending countless hours prefacing your garden and making it look beautiful, we have come up with ways to make the most out of your garden and outdoor space before summer ends. Here are five ways that you can get outside and make the most of what is left of this beautiful weather. 1. Enjoy Alfresco Dining - many people use their garden as an extension to their indoor space, particularly in the summer. Having a dedicated area outdoors lets you enjoy alfresco dining whenever you feel like it, helping you to make the most of the garden. Think about installing a pergola or canopy as shelter for even greater flexibility. 2. Keep Warm With Outdoor Heating - keep enjoying your garden as day turns into night and things start to cool down by using outdoor heating. Whether you opt for a fire pit or the convenience of a halogen heater, making sure everyone is warm lets you enjoy the garden all night and even into the fall. 3. Eliminate Pests - Nothing ruins time in the garden more than pests. Whether its flies around the food or wasps chasing the children, dealing with unwelcome guests lets you relax and enjoy your garden in peace. A wide range of pest control products are available to help you eliminate or deter everything from rodents to insects. 4. Bring The Indoors Out - Make your garden stylish and inviting by transporting elements of indoor decor outside. From cushions and throws to bowls, candle holders and even artwork, thinking about your outdoor space as another room makes it a great place to spend quality time with friends and family. 5. Master The BBQ - everyone loves a good BBQ, so mastering a few recipes means you’re to host a get together everyone will love. Keeping things simple, but doing them well, is key to a great BBQ.

Home Security Tips For Seniors The elderly can be fragile and this unfortunately means they may be an easy target for criminals. Here are some basic home protection tips that can be easily undertaken:

•Make sure your door has a peephole:

Decorative door glass looks great, but it isn’t really safe. Anyone can see you moving inside and the glass is easily broken. •Don’t neglect windows: Security film should be placed on the inside for better protection; they increase safety and make it more difficult for the glass to be broken.

• If you have gates, make sure all of them are locked when you are alone at the house; for all those who should enter they can call to say they’re coming. Don’t buzz in anyone you don’t know. • Home Security System: The foundation of any home safety plan is a good Home Security System. They are great as prevention from thieves, but an amazing support for medical emergencies and fires, too. If you live alone or plan on spending a period of your retirement traveling, then a home security system is a must. • Sensor Lighting: Whenever someone is at the door or in the yard, you’ll know when the lights go on. They are also great prevention from vandalism, too. If you live in a condo or apartment building, have sensor lighting installed in hallways and shared entry points.

Their fourth top scorer of all time, despite only being 26, is recovering from successful surgery on a broken foot and might not return for Paris St-Germain this season.

Sagittarius (November 22ndDecember 21st)

Focus on breaking through this month around your fear of letting others down. It is an old story that has outlived its usefulness. This month’s mantra: I take responsibility to dream my undreamed dreams.

Saturn, the lesson bringer of the zodiac, normally indicates a time for introspection, focus and discipline with respect to developing who we want to be

David Neville Store Celebrates 50 years David Neville’s opened its doors for the first time on Saturday 25th May 1968. It rained nearly all day and hardly a soul ventured out until 4pm in the afternoon when the first sale was made, a McIntosh round table and 4 nesting chairs for the sum of £80. We were up and running and still are after 50 years. This is quite an achievement for a small local retailer. How have we achieved this? Personal service, satisfaction, loyal customers and loyal staff in all departments of the business. All the staff, past and present have made huge contributions to the success of the business to whom I am very grateful. However, this is a family business and over the years all three of my sons have made contributions to its success. Michael is now at the helm with fellow Director Paul Mason who has been with the company since he was 17 and having started from scratch is now an expert in all aspects of the business. I know that my father who set me up in business would be very proud. May the success continue. By David Neville

One of the great events being held this summer, in support of Teenage Cancer Trust, is Tenbury Music Festival. The peaceful riverside setting of Tenbury’s Burgage, in the beautiful Teme Valley, will be buzzing with festival goers on 30th June as the town comes alive for the fourth Tenbury contemporary music festival. With the headline act of the Lightning Seeds topping the bill, and the event being halfway through this year’s World Cup, their million-selling hit '3 Lions' (Football's Coming Home) will be a popular number - let's just hope England are still in with a chance! With pre-booked ticket prices at £22 this one day event is free to under 16 year olds (under 13s must be accompanied) for further information and tickets go to

Ocean’s 8

Everyone knows there is a curse to sequels, sequels very rarely match up to their predecessors. When the predecessor is brilliant, a bad sequel can bring huge disappointment. This was my worry with Deadpool 2. The first Deadpool was fantastically funny, and quite frankly, a breath of fresh air from the typical superhero films which it so often made fun of. Could Deadpool 2 live up to expectations and be just as funny? My answer is yes!

Super Troopers 2

When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in the disputed area. Release date: June 15

The Bookshop

Danny Ocean’s estranged sister Debbie attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou, Rose, Daphne Kluger, Nine Ball, Tammy, Amita, and Constance. Release date: June 18

Set in a small town in 1959 England, it is the story of a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield. Release date: June 29

Deadpool 2 follows on from Deadpool, with Wade Wilson getting serious with fiancée Vanessa. However, when a villain breaks into his home and shoots Vanessa, Wade’s life is turned up side down. However, he must continue to fight bad guys, in the shape of Cable who has come from the future to kill a child. It’ll take a great team to help Wade succeed. Can he work as a team? Will he share the spotlight in his heroic adventure? The film continues to make comedic references to other superhero films whilst breaking down the fourth wall to reveal exactly how a great super hero movie is made. It’s a brilliant film that will make you laugh out loud. www.imdb.com

COUNTRY ROAD DRIVING When traveling on rural or country roads, there are a few things to keep in mind that will help keep you safer on the road:

Visibility: Country roads often suffer from reduced visibility due to large hedgerows, trees and overgrown verges. So, slow down when traveling on country and rural roads and you’ll minimise any surprises that you may find around the corner.

STANFIELD

• • • NURSING HOME •

Passing Spaces:

From time to time country roads will also narrow and you’ll have to use passing places. On such roads, look ahead and when you meet a car coming he other way judge who is best placed to pull over. If in doubt, err on the side of caution and pull into the nearest passing space and let the other person pass. Wildlife and farm animals: Always be aware that you may encounter wildlife and farm animals loose on country roads. Always try and keep a steady pace that allows you enough time to react when you do encounter them, slow down so as not to frighten them and give them a wide berth as you pass.

Cyclists, Horses And Walkers: Quieter country roads also attract lots of cyclists, horse riders and walkers in the summer. So, stay alert to the cyclists, keep on the look out for them particularly when going round ‘blind’ bends or over ‘blind’ summits.

‘Fantastic’ Monaco result can kick start Force India’s season - Ocon  Because All Dogs Deverve A Second Chance Forest Dog Home are reliant on the goodwill of their fabulous team of volunteers to provide valuable support in all aspects of our work. Whether you want to enjoy the fresh air whilst walking the dogs, or helping out in their charity shops, or if you prefer fundraising then they have lots of fun events for you to get involved in. Get in contact to find out more. Email Email: info@forest-dog-rescue.org.uk

Six races in and only sixth in the standings. It’s not a position you might expect Force India to be in, given their fourth place finish in last year’s championship. But according to driver Esteban Ocon they’ll soon be climbing the order...  The Frenchman’s optimism comes after he recorded his best result of the season so far with sixth place in Monaco on Sunday – a result he believes should be a sign of things to come from the team at the next round in Canada and beyond. Ocon ran a long first stint in Monaco and then held off intense pressure from a train of cars to take his first top-ten finish on the famous street circuit. But it wasn’t just the result that left the Frenchman glowing. It was also the performance – and more importantly potential – of the car he had beneath him, in the form of the Mercedes-powered VJM11. “The pace we had in the car was unbelievable,” he added. “

Top Dog Of The Month Meet the incredibly dinky and adorable Gracie who came into rescue when she was saved by a member of the public from a dreaful situation. Unfortunatley their dogs didn’t like her that much and asked us to help out - how could we refuse! PLEASE NOTE GRACIE IS TINY IN SIZE!! Graicie is incredibly sweet, playful and inquisitive . She gets on ok with my dogs and didn’t really bother with the cats. She much prefers human company and loves sitting on your chest or lap. I think she would benefit from a quieter home without young children and would make an excellent companion dog.

Tuesday 19th June- The curtain goes up. The week begins with three Group One races (the most prestigious class of Flat race). Wednesday 20th June- A more gently-paced day that nevertheless features an exciting card and includes the Group One Prince of Wales’s Stakes. Thursday 21st June- The day of the historic Gold Cup. This is Britain’s most important event for stayers (horses that run over long distances), the race that launched the Royal Meeting as we know it. Friday 22nd June-The traditional highlight of the day is the Group One Coronation Stakes. This was first run in 1840 to commemorate the crowning of Queen Victoria two years earlier. This race typically pits the leading threeyear-old fillies in Europe against each other. Saturday 23rd June-The week’s fitting finale. Royal Ascot closes with the Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes: one of the world’s great international sprint races and the second British leg of the Global Sprint Challenge
