Recently, he informed members of improvements made to the fabric of the building such as a new floor in the market hall, the removal of the gate work for sandblasting and re-painting, the new iron gate which replaces part of the wall in the lower market as well as the provision of a decorative skirt for every stall. The Easter weekend will be celebrated in style at Altrincham Market this year with a host of activities, stalls and entertainment. In addition to the regular Saturday market on 23 April there will be extra, specialist, stalls, Morris dancing, a brass band, face painting and cake decorating.

Beach Confident


The popularity of Laser/IPL treatments for unwanted hair has increased hugely in the last 5 years. There are several essential facts you should be aware of before you commence with the treatment. There have been a number of radical changes in the aesthetic industry and the consequent increase in incidents of long term/permanent scarring as a result of Laser / IPL treatments. The clinic practitioner should be able to present: Recognition by Care Quality Commission and Evidence of Laser/IPL training; preferably advanced. Personal Recommendation indicates that a clinic offering safe, effective, high standard treatments, Thorough no-obligation consultation, during which you will be informed about the treatment and have an opportunity to ask all your questions, will indicate that the clinic takes care of its clients and are not only after your money. Hopefully, armed with these facts you should be able to make an informed and wise choice for your aesthetic laser/IPL Hair Removal treatment and enjoy the benefits for many years. Our clinic is celebrating 6 years and a ‘no complaint’ history this April. We offer free no obligation consultations and our medical practitioner holds a BTEC advanced qualification in Laser/IPL treatments. We are normally very busy at our clinic starting from April onwards doing Bikini & Underarm Hair removal helping people to be beach confident.

Heyes Grove Tennis Club H

eyes Grove Tennis Club was thought to have been originally formed by members of Timperley Methodist around 1921. The courts may have been originally grass but were re-laid as red shale courts alongside the railway line with access over Stoney Bridge Lane just opposite the junction of Heyes Lane and Park Road, Timperley. The original clubhouse was a wooden pavilion with a veranda. Play would often be stopped to watch the passing steam trains go by as steam from the locomotives drifted across the courts.

In 1956 a fire destroyed the original wooden pavilion and a new brick built clubhouse rose from the ashes. The club established itself as a family club with both its men’s and ladies teams playing in the local South West Manchester Tennis League in later years it also joined the North East Cheshire Tennis League. A games room extension and a bar were added in 1978 and table tennis section was formed.

Over the years the courts were slowly upgraded from shale to hard courts in the 1980’s and during the 1990’s three superb artificial grass courts were purchased with a lottery grant from the Sports Council, floodlights were added and a further three Astroturf courts were laid allowing members to play throughout the year.

The club now has four men’s and two ladies teams competing in the leagues with social tennis being played throughout the year on Wednesday and Friday evenings with Sunday being the most popular day for players of all ages. Many social activities are held during the season such as mini tournaments, barbeques,

darts night, quizzes and an annual dinner dance to support the club.

The club has had a strong junior membership throughout the years with many juniors going on to play for the senior men’s and ladies teams. Monday night junior coaching sessions are now very popular especially around Wimbledon time! This year the club is celebrating its 90th Anniversary and hopes to go from strength to strength improving the facilities and attracting new members. For more information about the club please contact club secretary Martin Flavell email: martin.

Emilie’s Story E

milie Olivia McEwan was born on Thursday 8th April 2010 breathing, crying and fighting. Although, at just 22 weeks and 6 days gestation having been given little or no chance of survival, all we could do was hope. From the very start her courage and determination shone through, surprising everyone as she kicked her way out of the plastic freezer bag she was born into! Emilie was rushed to the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Wythenshawe hospital, weighing just 550g, her journey began. At just over a week old Emilie’s journey took its first wrong turn. We received a chilling phone call and rushed to the hospital to find our tiny daughter on intensive oxygen therapy. Her doctors reminded us of how extremely premature Emilie was and said it would be unlikely she would survive the next 24 hours as she had pneumonia. Emilie on the other hand had other ideas and breezed through the next few days while her family stood by her incubator, not yet knowing of Emilie’s strength. The next three weeks were a blur, experiencing things

We also encountered the first time she held on to our finger and I’m proud to say, she had a fantastic grip! With Emilie growing, allbe-it slowly, we seemed to be making progress. At nearly 6 weeks old Emilie was to face her second hurdle. After a surgical review we were told that Emilie’s bowel had burst because of a blockage. She needed to be transferred to St Mary’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for her first life saving operation. The transfer team were amazing, managing to stabilise Emilie for a short time to get her to St Mary’s. Once there, we were told Emilie was too sick for surgery, it was up to her and another strong course of antibiotics. Within two days Emilie was fit for her operation and after a five hour wait we were told it was a success! Emilie went from strength to strength, her breathing improved she was taking milk and putting on weight.

hewa Dance and Shewa Designs are the new initiatives of local resident Claire Donaldson. Claire is a leading exponent in community dance, having spent the last decade teaching contemporary dance nationally in education, focusing on engaging boys to dance and in working with young offenders. After fully rupturing her cruciate ligament, at the beginning of 2010 Claire was forced to suspend her career and take time out from dancing and teaching. Claire says “The injury was a severe blow but gave me time to reflect, re-assess and fortunately discover another passion - art.” Claire has just held a successful exhibition at Hulme’s coffee shop and continually sells her art cards from there. Claire moved into creating art canvasses and cards during her recuperation. Now fully recovered Claire is dividing her time between dance teaching and art sales. Claire is setting up contemporary / creative dance classes at All Saints Church Hall, Halebarns, starting at the end of March.

ulme’s Coffee Shop in Timperley Village opened for business in June of last year, it was opened with the hope of creating a community atmosphere, a place where people could meet up with friends or simply relax with a nice cuppa and good locally sourced food. Owners Teresa and David Hulme have certainly tried to get people involved by setting up a number of activities around the business of running the shop. They hold monthly Art Exhibitions to showcase work mainly by local artists, there has been a great deal of interest in the art and they have proved very popular ever since Timperley artist Olga Meadowcroft hung her first picture in the shop. Mike King who exhibited his photography shortly before Christmas said about the shop “a superb ‘local’ watering hole that has wonderful character of its own.” At the end of each exhibition a piece of work is kindly donated by the artists in order to raise much needed funds for St Ann’s Hospice, the charity for which the shop constantly supports following the untimely death of David’s mother in 2009. On May 14th the shop will be holding a Tea Party to mark St Ann’s 40th Anniversary celebrations. The theme will be 1940’s and the shop will be decorated with flags and bunting. Staff will be suitably kitted out in fancy dress and other fun activities will be held. Prizes for the raffle have been donated by artist including forthcoming artist Lillian Sutherland who has kindly donated pictures painted by her art teacher from when she was a student. Claire Donaldson who recently held an exhibition at the shop said “Teresa’s support and encouragement for local people is heartwarming. She has helped to nurture and grow my business.” Her Shewa Design cards are now available to buy at the shop in a range of designs. Shewa was the name given to Claire by a Nigerian artist and means ‘one who inhabits beauty’, an apt name for the brightness and colour used in her designs.

Looking for somewhere to ‘Hang Out’?



ince opening the shop Teresa and David have been amazed at the amount of artistic talent living local to Timperley. David says “We now have a short list of people who are very keen to exhibit their work, and we appeal for anyone out there to come in and show us what you’ve got to offer.” Keeping up with the sense of the community the next artists to display their work will be pupils from St Hugh’s Primary School. Their work will be displayed from 7th April through to the beginning of May. There will be a chance to vote for your favourite pictures and the three pupils with the most votes will be awarded prizes at the school. Winners will also get a mention in the next issue of View Timperley. Continuing on the artistic theme and the finding of local talent for which Hulme’s is proud to be associated with Sarah Thirlwell, Sarah is an award winning designer who produces a range of vessels, vases, jewellery and interior products all made

Helping Teresa with the dance will be contemporary dance teacher Claire Donaldson. Teresa is also very excited about the confirmation that Bennet Gartside who is first soloist with the Royal Ballet in London, who has kindly agreed to give up his time to run a workshop with the children, which will be used in the performance.

A Home for Alice A

benefit gig will take place on Wednesday May 4th at the Roadhouse, Newton Street, Manchester from 7.30pm onwards. The benefit gig is in aid of The Mustard Tree Foundation, a Manchester based refuge and the charity Shelter. View Timperley recently caught up with the event organizer, Helen Wilson:

I recall thinking to myself, we have to realise that we are all in this together, every human being should have the right to shelter, I felt ashamed that I had been moaning about the cold earlier that day and then met Alice who despite the cold and despite being homeless still smiled. I came away feeling that I had to do something constructive and so the benefit idea was born.

What inspired the Benefit Gig? Who will be playing at the Gig? I was really inspired when I spoke with Alice. Alice is a Homeless woman, in Manchester, I met with her during the extremely cold winter last year. I was so inspired by this meeting that I decided I had to do something.

We have a diverse line up; it’s going to be great. To name a few we have “Mike Dignam” who is an Acoustic singer song writer from Preston, School friends “Antony and James Jeffries”

who have been making music since childhood their musical tastes have forged an eclectic sound of rock and pop, we have a band called “Butterfly Jam”, another band called “The Beeky Chastards”, a band called Wolf Ghost and more tbc very soon.

Centenary of Tatton’s Japanese Garden


011 marks the centenary of the introduction of the celebrated Japanese garden at Tatton Park. This beautiful haven, a serene central point in Tatton’s landscaped pleasure grounds, was introduced to Tatton by Alan de Tatton Egerton (1845-1920), 3rd Baron Egerton of Tatton. It was almost certainly inspired by his visit to the Anglo-Japanese Exhibition at White City in London in 1910 and is now considered ‘the finest example of a Japanese garden in Europe’. The centenary will be marked by a series of events, starting with a Mansion exhibition, Visions of Paradise. The exhibition is a celebration of Japanese gardens, alongside which are historic Japanese artefacts on loan from Manchester Art Gallery and also from Tatton’s own collection.

Visions of Paradise is a multi-faceted exhibition. It features striking and informative interpretive panels, kindly loaned by the Japanese Garden Society, about the influence of Japanese garden design on European gardens. A number of beautiful items from Tatton’s own collection are also on display, including 19th century porcelain; earthenware known as g in rform Banko ware and 19th and re pe cham a e W Altrin main e h 20th century books about t t e a h al in t me Japanese architecture and Festiv please co arena d see us. gardens. an

Handinked and printed, the album shows scenes from ‘The Tale of Genji’, the amorous adventures of the handsome Prince Genji. Digital images of the original prints will be on display and feature striking images of sumo wrestlers, samurai warriors and delightful scenes of Japanese beauties taking tea in enchanted gardens. On public display for the very first time at Tatton are a series of extraordinary items of Japanese armour and weaponry loaned from Manchester Art Gallery.

The items include an arresting Japanese helmet bowl or Hoshi bachi kabuto (from about 1600); a lacquered steel face mask or Mempo with an expression called Ressei Men or ‘fierce face’; a sword stick; an armour-piercing dagger or yoroi-toshi and a pair of 18th century stirrups, the fine tracery of their original silver coating still faintly visible. The

items are normally kept in storage at Manchester Art Gallery, so this is a rare opportunity for the public to view these extraordinary arms and armour. The exhibition opened to the public on March 26 and will be on display until Sunday, July 3 (Mansion closed Mondays).
