With more and more of us using mobile phones to access information on the move, we decided that it was time for The Village Emporium to embrace this wonderful new technology and introduce our very own App – EMPORIUM in your pocket. It’s designed to make it even easier for you to find out where to go and who to call locally. What’s more there will be vouchers and special offers for you to check out as well as regular notifications of special events. All at the touch of a button, anytime, anywhere! Find out more on page 42. We’ve also improved our web site so you can browse the magazine online if you wish. Take a look at the new What’s On page for information on charity and community events in our area. Do visit www.villageemporium. But with all these high-tech developments we haven’t forgotten the printed magazine which we know you enjoy reading. So we’ve packed this issue with competitions and features as well as adverts from our fantastic local businesses. Best wishes,

Karen, Alison & Clare

h o m t i e g ! n i g n i Br The Olympic Torch relay comes to Dunchurch... 2nd July: a date for the diary! Excitement and anticipation are in the air in Dunchurch after the announcement on March 19th that the Olympic Torch will come through the village. Local people will be able to get a glance at the Olympic Torch on Monday July 2nd as it makes its way from Coventry via Rugby and then onto Northampton as part of its 70 day relay around the UK. The Dunchurch leg of the relay is scheduled to start on Rugby Road (where it meets Northampton Lane) at 9.43am and will continue through the centre of the village, ending on Coventry Road opposite the entrance to Don Cerce Close.

with us for the rest of our lives.” With its Gunpowder plot connections, Dunchurch holds VLJQLîFDQFHLQ8.KLVWRU\DQGZLOOSURYLGH a picturesque location for people from the local areas to see this momentous convoy.

Our moment to shine The pupils of Dunchurch Junior and Infant Schools will be out in force, lining the streets to witness this historic event. Dunchurch Parish Council are also putting on bacon sandwiches which will be available in the Square (near the library) so come and combine a late breakfast with this truly momentous occasion!

Local resident Hayley Burke said of the announcement: “For most people in the area, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. To get this close to the Olympic Torch really is momentous and is something we’ll keep Day 44 2nd July

Local connections Carina Haley of Dunchurch is one of the lucky nominees who has been chosen to carry the torch. Nominated for her tireless charity and community work , Carina will be carrying the torch through Warwick on July 1st. On hearing of her successful application Carina said: “I was amazed to hear that I had been chosen from all the hopefuls. And to get to carry the torch so close to home is just the icing on the cake for me, I feel very lucky and very honoured.”

The Olympic Torch is being made in Coventry! Premier Sheet Metal has won the prestigious contract, beating hundreds of manufacturing ïUPVDFURVVWKH8.7KHORFDO ïUPLVFXUUHQWO\ZRUNLQJRQWKH torch - a three-sided golden cone perforated with 8,000 circles, designed to represent the 8000 torchbearers who will carry it on its journey.

Local born and bred Olympian, Katharine Merry, who achieved a bronze medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 told The Village Emporium: “It’s a once in a life time opportunity to see the torch in the streets of Dunchurch and surrounding areas.” Katharine was born and raised in Dunchurch (where her parents still live) and attended both the Infant and Junior School and will be known to many of our readers. Katharine does not just see this as a key sporting legacy, but one that should inspire old and young alike to achieve their lifetime ambitions and not just in sport. She said “Strive to be the best at whatever you do. There’s huge excitement at local level about the visit of the torch and a feeling of national pride surrounding the Olympics and Paralympics. I hope it will inspire everyone to think about their dreams and ambitions and let the legacy live on.” Katharine will be presenting on Midlands Today during the torch relay through the Midlands and will then be part of the BBC 5live team at the Olympics and commentating with Channel 4 for the Paralympics. Live the dream – Katharine did!

Reaching for the Stars Klickers was celebrating when salon owner Martin Cole scooped Image of the Year - Newcomer at the Clynol Business and Creative Awards in April this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy,â&#x20AC;? Martin told us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had an amazing career so far and it just keeps getting better. It was such a lovely surprise to have won this award but I obviously couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done it without the team involved on the shoot as they all contributed to creating my beautiful image. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a fantastic feeling to see our work published in the industry magazines. I feel so honoured to have been recognised by Clynol and long may the high standards of Klickers continue.â&#x20AC;? Martin won with an entry which demonstrated his creative ability taking inspiration from the trends from the past year. He wowed industry experts with his talent and his ability to capture a commercially strong feel and also to demonstrate what a great image maker he was. For his prize Martin will receive

Soft Furnishings by Mickie comes to Dunchurch Owned and run by Mickie Fenwick-Wilson, the first Soft Furnishings studio opened on Clifton Road, Rugby four years ago. With over 18 years’ experience of working for major names and running her own workshops, Mickie quickly gained an exceptional reputation in the area, making and selling made-to-measure curtains, cushions, blinds, pelmets, loose covers and bed throws. Soft Furnishings 2 And this year, after the former owners of a Dunchurch store decided to retire and sell their premises, Mickie saw the perfect opportunity to expand her business and launched Soft Furnishings 2 just after Easter. “I’m delighted at how well it’s going,” Mickie explains. “I think that our success is down to the personal service we offer our customers. You can visit us at one of our studios, look through our many sample books and take them home for a couple of days to make sure that the fabrics you like complement your existing décor. Or I can visit you so we can discuss your ideas, share inspiration and do any measuring required in the comfort of your own home. “I am also incredibly lucky to have a team of skilled and experienced ladies who can create just about anything my customers want!”

Choose fabrics, blinds and furniture in one place The Clifton Road and Dunchurch studios stock a wide variety of stunning, competitively-priced fabrics, including Voyage, Villanova, Willman, Prestigious and James Hare Silks. Fabrics are
