BANG! November is often given a bit of a bum deal, being considered a chilly and empty amount of time prior to the glitz and glam of December. We say yar boo hiss to that, as November can be an incredible month... and it gets the very best of starts. It might only be one night out of 365, but Bonfire Night doth approach, and you’re probably already wondering what you’ll do. If you’ve thought better of the situation after last year’s disastrous firework display that you launched from the roof of your shed, and have decided instead to keep your eyebrows this year and go to a professionally organised and safe display, you’re in the right place. We have the low-down on all that

is happening this 5th November, so you can plan the night to perfection and see the very best fireworks displays and bask in the warming glow of the very best piles of burning wood. Quick fact: ‘bonfire’ does not come from the French bon, meaning good, but rather from ‘bonefire’, meaning a funeral pyre where human bodies were burnt. You jus’ been facted, baby. And hey, if you couldn’t give two flips about Guy Fawkes and the weird tradition his attempt at terrorism created, there is still plenty kicking off in this November issue that has nothing to do with explosions in the sky. Why not take our Treasure Hunt of Skelton, or delve into the history of Fishergate in the Time Travel article. Also, Howard’s column completely slams the whole festival, so you might like that, too. Whatever you get up to in November, remember remember (tee hee) to have a great time and keep us handy.

The words and music of Gilbert & Sullivan are still as fresh and relevant today as there were in the 19th century, and a great example of that is Patience. Being staged by York Opera at The Theatre Royal, 8th-11th November, Patience tells the tale of poet Reginald Bunthorne. Followed wherever he goes by a bevy of love-sick maidens, Bunnthorne has eyes only for Patience, the village milkmaid, but she sees straight through his affectation (and terrible poetry). Find out more about the show, and book your tickets, at www.yorktheatreroyal. co.uk The great news is that we have a pair of tickets up for grabs, and entering to win couldn't be easier. Just answer this:

YORK LIFE

and life in general AS SEEN BY RACHEL RAGG

Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness? Not likely. No: November is the season of rain, horrible dark nights, and the awful prospect of Christmas. Given that we are stuck inside in the dark, it’s not surprising that our thoughts might turn to the internet. According to a recent news report, almost two thirds of 15-16-yearolds admit to having viewed online material that my father would have called Unsuitable. As the parent of someone exactly in this age group, I should feel shocked and horrified. But instead, I think about my own habits. And I am indeed shocked and horrified - to realise that I am equally culpable. The rot set in when my children were small, with the discovery of the Boden catalogue. Fifteen years ago, this was the ultimate in middle-class voyeurism: happy families sporting

10

matching towelling items and smiles, frolicking on Cornish beaches. But it was just the start of what was to come. Fast forward, and it’s only one small step from a pair of must-have leopard-skin kitten heels to my current bedtime reading: the delightfully named Screwfix catalogue, with its array of Column Radiators,

offers of such irresistible delights as cheap “white fish” and beardtrimmers.

ladies’ “coveralls” (otherwise known as boiler suits), and pipe clips. And don’t get me started on the Lidl catalogue, with its ever-changing

And it’s not just the catalogues. York is a veritable minefield when it comes to Middle-Aged voyeurism. It even turns out that my favourite sandwich

is a top-shelf item in Bishopthorpe Road Sainsbury’s. This requires - oh, the shame of it - having to ask for help to reach it, as I am not tall. Nowhere is safe. A nice, harmless trip to Micklegate Post Office? Or it would be, were it not for Carter Jonas. Immense Victorian villa on Tadcaster Road with an original tiled floor, for only £1.35 million? Yes, yes, yes. And then there’s Spelman’s bookshop. I rest my case. After a trip to Micklegate, there’s only one way back to town - and that’s via Lakeland, the original home of thrillseeking grown-ups. Located opposite Ann Summers, but a whole lot more attractive and infinitely more useful. Sink liners, cordless carpet sweepers,


Town may be full of perils for the Adult Shopper (the window of the Mulberry shop being a prime example) - but out-of-town is no better. Elaine Johnson Fabric and Interiors of Clifton Moor, I am thinking of you. Because we all know that the ultimate midlife post-Boden obsession is Farrow and Ball. Screwfix is all very well, but you can’t beat going to sleep wondering whether Elephant’s Breath might be very slightly preferable to Peignoir. And the only way to find out is to spend an unjustifiably long time scrutinising every different greyish shade on the little-but-big-enough bits of painted wood at Elaine’s shop. Then there are the curtain poles and finials, which would be perfect for that Victorian villa on Tadcaster Road. Which in turn gives rise to an entire evening spent on the internet looking at ironmongery websites. My house may not be a villa, exactly, but I still need to spend three hours looking at pictures of door-knockers and rimlatches.

According to Tania Cockcroft (honestly) of Lancashire Contraception and Sexual Heath Service, watching Unsuitable material online “can make [the] real-world […] less enjoyable, and makes people less happy in their relationships”. Well, she’s quite right: I am a whole lot less happy with my little real-world house now that I’ve been on the JacksonStops and Staff website and seen the “Grade II listed Jacobethan-style country house set within magnificent parkland and grounds” in Escrick

YORK LIFE

non-spill moisture traps… the list of possibilities is endless. All I can say is that you will welcome their Guide to Decluttering by the time you have stocked up on bag-clips and avocado savers.

However, I have to be sensible and realise that my finances will not quite stretch to that. And the good news there is that by saving £2.5 million, I can make my real world much more enjoyable by buying another pair of Boden shoes. Ah. Midlife Happiness guaranteed.

YORK LIFE

Dear

Dear Daphne, I’ve been happily married for four years now. I love my husband and we have a great time together. I recently found out from a friend that my ex boyfriend who I dated for five years in my 20s got engaged. The reason we broke up was because he didn’t want to commit to me. I had never doubted for a second that I was over him, but today I feel terrible about myself and not in the slightest bit happy for him. Should I be worried? Anon

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Got a problem? OF COURSE YOU HAVE. Lucky Daphne’s got all the answers. Write to her care of Your Local Link and she’ll soon sort you out.

No, I don’t think so. This is a minor case of remembering past rejection, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s five years, five minutes or a life time away, it still hurts. It makes you wonder why you weren’t good enough for your ex partner and wonder exactly what makes his new finance better than you. The truth is no-one is better than anyone else, and these things just happen through a combination of timing, circumstance and personal emotion. Forget about him and enjoy your happy relationship with your husband, don’t feel too guilty about feeling this way, it will soon pass.

Daphne, I recently moved to York as a student, I was super excited for freshers and to meet my new flat mates and start my course. The degree is as I had expected, but what I didn’t expect was to not really get on with any of my flat mates. I’ve met friends out of my halls who I get on with great, but going home feels like a major chore and it’s so much lonelier than I thought it would be. There are so many nights when I wish I was back at my parents and I’d never come. Do I drop out?

STUDENT WOES

Dear Daphne, I live WINTER IS with four flatmates, COMING we get on pretty well, and on the whole don’t tend to have any big dramas. Recently, a couple of my flat mates have booked a holiday which has skint them. We share the bills equally and because of this holiday they never want to have the heating on to save money. I’m sick to death of walking around the house freezing cold because they spent their money how they saw fit and now the rest of us have to suffer. Am I being unreasonable? Annoyed housemate Hey Annoyed Housemate. It’s nearly November!

12

So no, you’re not being unreasonable. I’m not frugal with heating, houses are supposed to be warm and cosy, so I am totally ‘team you’ on this one. Have a conversation with your flatmates that you’re freezing, and you would like to have the heating on more, if they grumble, maybe offer to foot a little bit more of the heating bill temporarily. Make sure you enjoy the heating as much as possible when they are out though, who wants to share the prosperity of being a sensible money saver? If you’re not willing to spend more money (perfectly understandable) then I suggest you buy a hot water bottle and wrap up warm for the impending chill. Daph x

Don’t give up! You’ve spent a whole summer looking forward to this moment, so it’s not surprising you’re a little disappointed. There’s no way you were going to


Dear Daphne, I recently got a new girlfriend and NEW I love her to bits. The only problem is, my ex and GIRLFRIEND I share the same friendship group. My friends are fine with me, I still get invited out regularly, even though I tend to take turns with the ex to save awkward encounters but they don’t involve my new girlfriend at all. When we go out the women in the group exclude her from conversations and some of the blokes are a bit funny about it too. It’s gotten so bad that she’s started to notice it and doesn’t want to go out with them anymore. I broke up from my ex girlfriend eight months ago and I’ve been seeing my current girlfriend for just over two months. I didn’t think it would be a problem and I don’t want to lose my fiends over this but I’m pretty mad that they’re acting this way especially as it’s been a while now. What should I do? Anon It sounds like your friends are trying to stay loyal to your ex as you were the one that broke up with her. Perhaps they know something that you don’t i.e she’s still not over you, or she’s upset that you’ve got a new girlfriend. I would recommend talking to a couple of your closer friends on a one to one basis to find out why they’re treating your new girlfriend differently. Let them know that their actions haven’t gone unnoticed and your girlfriend hasn’t done anything wrong. Hopefully they will realise their actions are unjustified and change their attitudes. Six months is a respectable amount of time to leave before dating again and I don’t think you’ve done anything wrong. If your friends confirm your suspicions, it may be worth having a conversation with your ex girlfriend kindly explaining that her emotions are putting a strain on your friendships and maybe she could have a word with the friends who are actively leaving your girlfriend out. A tricky situation and one that might not turn out how you hope. Fingers crossed that your friends are mature enough to take on board what you’ve got to say without getting defensive. If not, find some new friends.

automatically get on with your new flatmates and in fact, that’s perfectly normal, plenty of my friends weren’t keen on the people they had to live with in first year. The best thing to do is focus on your course and make friends on nights out and at uni, hopefully when it comes to getting a student flat next year, you will be friendly with people who you will actually enjoy living with.

23RD OCT 22ND NOV

L to R: Hillary Clinton, Mary Antoinette, Pele, Pewdiepie

Keeping it really simple, the guys seem to get most of what they want out of the first couple of weeks of the month, then there’s a subtle shift of energy around the 15th which seems to highlight female dreams and desires. Without being sexist about it, the 1st to the 14th sees things like jobs, careers and business high on the agenda, with lots of action in these areas – then the mood softens from the 15th onwards with relationships and family and affairs of the heart

dominating the high ground. Bottom line is that it is a good month for making a lot of progress up the career ladder, and it is also a good month for making commitments in romantic relationships – just not always at the same time. It is worth remembering that across the board, the initiative is definitely with you. Be pro-active in all things and don’t wait for invitations or opportunities.

ARIES 21ST MAR - 19TH APR

leave you feeling unsettled. Financial frustrations between the 15th and 22nd cause you to be impulsive with money during the last days of November, but at least you’ll feel better for spending a few quid.

The first half of the month is an intense period in which you’ll be under time pressure; everything needs to be done right now! Things calm down a lot around the 15th when you are able to take a tighter grip over some of your schedules. There is some financial gain coming through as a reward for all this action and activity, certainly felt by the 22nd- 23rd onwards.

TAURUS 20TH APR - 20TH MAY Grumpy Taurus with your glass half

empty! It is clear that other people don’t know how you feel, and even when they do, they seem not to care! So, it’s a “go it alone” month, and the sooner you accept that fact, the better! Some business opportunity presents you with a decision towards month’s end, but there isn’t much enthusiasm for it from any direction.

GEMINI 21ST MAY - 20TH JUNE Unexpected news about a pregnancy could either be very good news, or not such good news. Thoughts about new homes and domestic routines

CANCER 21ST JUN - 22ND JUL Possibly the re-ignition of an old flame when someone pops up from your past. If you’re free and single, great – but if not, be on your guard. A journey around the 17th, 18th, or 19th could be quite exciting, especially if there are romantic agendas. Any problem

that confronts you will be seen as a challenge, which is okay, because you’ll be spoiling for a fight.

LEO 23RD JUL - 22ND AUG A moody start to the month which will cause you to re-examine some of your priorities and change your modus operandi. Don’t be afraid to re-schedule certain events: better to do something tomorrow and get it right rather than to rush into things today and cause a cock-up. In your own time, make efforts to walk away from historic heart aches.

CAPRICORN 22ND DEC - 19TH JAN

Business and careers are very high profile between the 5th and the 10th and there could also be an important reunion around this time. Long hours at work cause some chronic tiredness, and you do need to pace yourself. Things lighten up around the 23rd and a party mood prevails during the last week of the month.

A lot of pressure on you in connection with work routines. This will be a busy time, but your energy levels are low, so you do need to pace yourself. A partner will be supportive, but might be understandably frustrated if he or she sees you undermining your own strengths and strong points. Try to spend more time chillaxing and get some sleep.

LIBRA 23RD SEPT - 22ND OCT Past efforts and sacrifices now begin to bear fruit, and events now conspire to bring you some much deserved reward – in particular, rewards for having been so patient, whether you’ve had much choice in the matter or not. A door is firmly closed against certain painful past situations, and there is a feeling of fresh starts and new beginnings.

YORK LIFE

VIRGO 23RD AUG - 22ND SEPT

AQUARIUS 20TH JAN - 18TH FEB When it comes to spending money, be on guard against other folks’ advice and use your own judgement. It should be a good money month, with revenue coming in from more than one source. Gradually you’ll be able to see your way ahead with greater clarity, and with that comes a degree of optimism and enthusiasm.

SAGITTARIUS 22ND NOV-21ST DEC PISCES 19TH FEB - 20TH MAR If you seem to be coming in for a lot of criticism, don’t over-react to this, because people mean you well, but are just getting a bit frustrated by some of your attitudes. Although you cannot please all of the people all of the time, you do need to do something to redefine your priorities, especially in connection with family relationships.

A gentle month for mother and child relationships, which is very good news if there has been any kind of friction in family circles. Other peoples’ problems now begin to find some sort of resolution, which gives you less to worry about, and even though your services may be much in demand, it should be nice to know that you are a lynch pin in the lives of others.

'be rich', well, don't expect us punters to help. If you want to provide the best cakes in Yorkshire, every cake fan will help. Whether you get rich or not also depends on their being a market need for what you do.

That's information you have and perhaps only you know, but it's also crowd sourced information. Today's cynics will probably be happier with that.

When I buy, I spend almost no time making a decision. I basically turn to PC Pro's best buy list to buy tech bits. I've no time to work out what's the best computer screen or whatever, my attitude is "just tell me what to buy and let me buy it". Contribute to this world of information. Put back. Make your mark. That's content marketing (we are what we consume.)

YORK LIFE Join us as we journey back in time. No pushing. THIS MONTH:

- FISHERGATE -

George VI once said that “the history of York is the history of England.” But it isn’t. York’s history is one dominated by Roman Emperors, Christian missionaries, Viking warmongers, Medieval Kings and Lords, and pious (yet ironically wealthy) monks. For a true look at what life was like throughout history for everyday people, you need to get out from behind the City Walls to places where our ancestors actually lived, worked, and died. You need to visit the likes of Fishergate.

MORE THAN A ROAD Today Fishergate is simply a road that takes you to and from the centre of York, but throughout history it was a thriving community of ordinary folk, clinging to the edge of the city to make a living. Despite Fishergate itself following the course of an ancient Roman road that follows the River Ouse southwards, people have been using the site for thousands of years. Excavations in 2000 on Blue Bridge Lane found stone and flint tools from the Neolithic Age that would have been used for hunting and food preparation. Fishergate lays at the

meeting point between the Vale of York’s glacial ridge running east/west, and the route of the Ouse which was used to get to the sea. It would have been like the Scotch Corner of prehistory. However, when the Romans did arrive and establish their fortress in 71CE, Fishergate served them well as a cemetery. Roman burial urns have been found since the 19th century, with evidence suggesting that this area was used by everyday people, and not the Great and Good who were buried along what is now The Mount. Those same excavations on Blue Bridge Lane, and within the grounds of Fishergate House (that posh house behind Mecca Bingo, Barbara), revealed that the land between the river and Fishergate was divided with ditches, used both for burials and farming.

GETTING SAXY Although the history books start to get a little thin in the period following the Roman withdrawal from Britain, York Archaeological Trust’s excavations in the 1980s have shown that business was still booming in Fishergate. Although no major

structures were discovered, there was evidence for huge amounts of craft work, including the production of pins and combs, as well as metalworking. While the Anglo-Saxon Kings were busying themselves with their conversion to Christianity within the old Roman fortress, the folk of Fishergate were busy trading with continental Europe, as evidenced by the excavation’s findings. Following the Viking take-over in 866CE, occupation in Fishergate seems to have diminished, probably as focus shifted to the Coppergate and Walmgate areas of the city. However, within the grounds of Fishergate House there was discovered the remains of a large structure which suggested people were still living there. Throughout the AngloScandinavian period this area surrounding the structure seems to have been used both for living and burial at different times.

As we’ve said before, the Normans ruined everything. However, in Fishergate they actually helped to cement the area’s future with the establishment of several churches, now all lost: St Helen, St Stephen, and All Saints. In fact, religious interest in the suburb peaked in 1202 when the Gilbertine Priory of St Andrew was established where today the Novotel Hotel stands. People started to move to Fishergate to service this priory and to work in the fields it possessed in neighbouring land.

YORK LIFE

CHANGE FROM THE NORM

Clearly these priors had a great old time of it on FIshergate, and finds within the priory precinct suggest they were well supplied with fine grub for hundreds of years. But where is this priory today if it did so well in Medieval times? Once again we have Henry VIII to thank, who, as part of his Dissolution in 1538, took the priory for the Crown and the whole complex of buildings was quickly ravished and the land used for grazing. Right up until the end of the 19th century the maps of this area referred to it as Stone Wall Close, probably referencing the priory’s perimeter walls which were the only things to survive – a small section of which did so right up until the 1990s.

BINGO! Just before we go... we mentioned Mecca Bingo earlier. The site now occupied by ‘The Church of The Holy Dabber’ once played home to one of York’s first cinemas. The Rialto was showing movies as early as 1910 and entertained the locals through two world wars, right up until being sold to Mecca Bingo in 1961 – a fact that was probably more relevant to the people of Fishergate than a comment about history from a millionaire monarch.

Never, have I ever, spared someone the embarrassment of hearing what a terrible time I’m going through to save their composure.

Sometimes, when I’m telling my tales of woe, I see eyes widen and a flash of disdain. Some reactions have been, ‘well I don’t know what to say to that’ and that’s ok. When I’m over sharing, I don't expect everyone to have the answers, just yano, maybe one person, hopefully. I wear my imperfections on my sleeve. Drama filled days race past with a side dish of whatever ailment i’m enduring at the time. I'm not one for secrets: they are a weight that I hate to bare and struggle to contain. I’m a gossip and a drama queen. My boyfriend once said that if he were not in love with me, he would deffo not hang out with me as there’s too

much drama. Remarkably I wasn’t all that offended. Perhaps my charm outweighs my grotesque nature. I’m romanticising it right? The poor guy must be conflicted AF. Talking about taboos helps to break them and I’ve got plenty. I don’t get on with hormonal contraceptives, I struggle with my weight and my mental health is anything but stable. I cry, a lot, and there’s not a soul in the office who doesn't know when it’s that time of the month. "I'm dying!” I scream from the toilets, loud enough for the women at the furthest desks away to hear my battle cry. Why make people feel uncomfortable? Well, look that’s not my intention. It’s just that keeping things to myself makes me feel isolated. Sometimes when I share the latest horror from this saga that

we call life, I can find advice and understanding in places, I hadn’t imagined. Pushing my toes over the clear and obvious line of what is deemed as socially appropriate has yet to disappoint me. Nothing is sacred, I’m an extrovert and God forbid you think conversations can hold ‘too much information’ no such thing, tell me your deepest and darkest and I will try my utmost best not to judge, but rather to understand and work it out. When bad things happen, the best thing to do is to talk. I’ve seen first hand how dangerous it can be to bottle up emotions. When we talk to each other about our rubbish lives, we begin to solve them, knowing that there are other people out there who are going through it too. So share away, I’m all ears.

BONFIRE OF THE PROFANITIES Howard Mosley-Chalk is a father and a husband. But more importantly he is a man. These are his (un)manly words.

I've never been one for Guy Fawkes Night. Apologies if 5th November is your favourite night of the year, but I've always thought the whole thing to be utterly dumb. From a historical point of view, celebrating it still doesn't make much sense, unless you're a Catholic-hating monarchist who is pro-public torture. The first ever Guy Fawkes Night was probably worth it, as they celebrated the fact that hundreds of people hadn't just been killed in a fiery explosion that would have destabilised the whole country. But now... Think about it: Guy Fawkes Night is all about annually re-executing a bloke who wasn't even the mastermind or driving force behind the Gunpowder Plot, and then ironically setting off explosions which, on average, lead to a couple of deaths each year.

now, as a result. I do, however, enjoy to steal-watch the fireworks display that The Mount School puts on every year near to my house. I'm thinking about asking some friends round this year, setting up deck chairs, and charging them. If it’s cold I'm sending up my drone and watching the display on my phone via the drone's camera while in bed. With no socks or pants on at all. YOU HEAR ME, MOTHER!?! Speaking of mums who bother me, my wife has just informed me that we are, in fact, attending a display this year, and taking all three kids (four, if you include the population of her uterus) to the

bonfire in Poppleton. Like, spend real money on watching a fire burn, while buying overpriced hot dogs. Joy. Sure, I can understand that the money raised is actually being spent on the firework display, but I can think of no greater allegory for our post-Brexit, postTrump world than spending all our money on 'ooo, pretty lights'. Yeah, I know that the kids will love it. Shuddup. They probably said that about the kids watching Guy Fawkes get hanged, drawn, and quartered in 1605. I bet the hot dogs were cheaper back then.

We start our hunt where the A19 meets Fairfields Drive; the closest entrance to the village from the city proper. March on into Skelton.

• If you miss the (crazy early) last collection, at what address can you post a letter?

STEP 3

Exit the park, cross the road, and head up the street opposite (confusingly also called Brecksfield). • How is Skelton Community Primary School rated? • If you’re passing the school on a week day, between what times in the morning can’t you stop? • Carry on up the street, but when you get to the end... what are the dimensions in feet of Skelton Village Main Hall?

26

STEP 4

Turn right onto Brecksfield and follow the road as it turns to the left. Enter the play park on your left. • Who should you contact if there are any problems? • After walking to the other end of the park, find out who the Chairman is.

Turn left onto The Village. As soon as there is a footpath on the opposite side, cross the road and walk into the lump-bumpy bit of land with lots of trees. While you’re there... • A husband of Kath’s is remembered around here, but what was his name? • As you approach the church, can you see who is “in charge”?

STEP 5

• How much could you be fined for drinking alcohol in the street? • What number lamppost stands opposite the cul-de-sac home to 18-34?

Enter the churchyard. It’s time for everyone’s favourite game! READING HEADSTONES! Yay! • Who’s death was “much regretted by his relatives”? • How many years separated the deaths of the Walker couple? • Who’s “life was short”, and “years but few”?

STEP 6

STEP 2

STEP 1

Village living

Continuing our tour of York’s villages and suburbs beyond the ring road, this month’s Treasure Hunt takes in Skelton... and what a pleasant jaunt it is, too.

STEP 7

YORK LIFE

TREASURE HUNT

Exit the churchyard, turn right onto The Green, then immediately left onto Church Lane. • What house along here has a hot-sounding name?

Carry on along Church Lane, then throw a left down St. Giles Road. Lets continue the ‘weird house name game’ shall we? • What house along here has the most number of welltons it can have? • What kind of crest?


STEP 8

YORK LIFE

Keep on St. Giles Road as it meets The Village, and follow it as it bends to the right. • What kind of tree has it’s own house? • Where does The Dell lead to? • And finally, who’s arms do you have to pass to get back to the A19?

SKELTON IS SO POSH, THE NO DOG FOULING SIGNS ARE FRAMED!

What we've learnt this issue GREEN MANURE ISN'T MANURE, BUT IS GREEN Ever heard of Green Manure? We always assumed it was a type of manure where the animal eats only green stuff, poops out green poop, then you spread it on your garden or veg patch. Turns out we were wrong, and green-fingered guru Tony has schooled us about what it actually is and, more importantly, why he's not all that keen on it. Gardeners scoot over to his regular column right now, and the rest of you do so too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if only to gaze at Tony's magnificent moustachioed mug.

WE HAVE MIXED FEELINGS...

COLD MAKES US HAPPY No, not because we're all secretly penguin people from a questionable research lab in Antarctica, here to steal all the fish and balance eggs on our feet, but rather because we're excited about the weather. Yes, it's getting darker earlier each night, and yes the temperature is plummeting like Trump's approval rating, but we love it. We're enjoying digging out all our cold weather clobber, dusting off the hot chocolate Thermos, and cuddling up with our nearest and dearest whenever we can. We hope you are, too.

It seems that Bonfire Night has us somewhat divided this month, with many in the office cheering for the whizz-bangs of 5th November, and a few others booing it down, all cross-armed and cynical. For a taste of the pro team, flip over to Sarah's Asides, where she'll detail why she likes it so much (but isn't all that keen on Halloween), and for a more negative outlook on Fireworks Night, flick to Howard's column. To settle the debate once and for all, on the night of the fifth Sarah and Howard will wrestle in a vat of candy floss in the car park of Haxby's Co-op. See you there.

FISHERGATE HAS SEEN IT ALL

For our Time Travel feature this month we delve into the past surrounding the Fishergate area of the city. Since Roman times it has been a suburb of York, but the activity that took place there is a fascinating slice of life across the whole of England, starting waaay back before the Romans rolled up. The article is written from the point of view of disagreeing with a dead King. Which is always fun.

SPORT REPORT

with Dan Tait

Each month Dan delivers his thoughts on local, national, and international sporting clashes. Pray silence.

They say a week is a long time in football. Well, in the past month since I wrote my last column, York City have made huge changes. None bigger than parting company with manager Gary Mills who was given his P45 after just 12 league games. It seems only two minutes ago we were at Wembley celebrating another FA Trophy win and the feel-good factor of keeping most of that team together. Now, after some rather inconsistent results including an energy sapping last minute defeat to South Shields in the

FA Cup (well third round qualifying for the FA Cup), the writing was on the wall. I should have foreseen the future when I arrived at Harrogate Town the week before and someone said, “this is a similar spot to where we watched York at Guiseley last season”. Needless to say, a meek 2-0 defeat was in the offing and a Harrogate Town contingent singing, “You’re just a town full of tea shops”.

would save us from the inevitable heartbreak. During the dour wins over Lithuania and Slovakia, the most interesting things were the tweets being sent. One bloke said he was “gutted I fell asleep through the England game. I woke up and it was still on”. Another turned the brightness up on his TV and it was still dull! Upon reading the 25/1 odds of England winning the

World Cup, one man explained for non-gamblers that it basically equates to if you put ten pounds on, you lose ten pounds. Having already qualified for Russia 2018, Gareth Southgate played an experimental side for the Lithuania game where Tottenham’s Harry Winks made his debut. I feel they missed an opportunity to give him the number 40 shirt. I guess it could be worse; Scotland

So just a matter of hours after the South Shields defeat, the Minstermen had turned to Darlington gaffer Martin

EN- GER-LAND! The same can’t be said for the England National Team. I don’t think I have ever known people so unexcited about qualifying for the World Cup. My first World Cup was USA ‘94 and I remember how devastated people were that England had failed to qualify. My upset soon cleared up once Diana Ross took that penalty and I played up my quarter Irish heritage, but this time I think people were hoping the team

Gray to turn the club’s fortunes around. A week later we had beaten the mighty Brackley Town 2-1 courtesy of a Jon Parkin goal of the season contender, and, suddenly, the past is forgotten and everyone is optimistic again. November home games include Curzon Ashton (Saturday 4th) and Kidderminster Harriers (Saturday 18th), which Martin Gray will hope can contribute to a renewed surge towards the one automatic promotion place.

went agonisingly close to reaching their first tournament for twenty years. One punter was sure the Scots will be more successful in the next campaign;

LOCAL SPORTS On Friday 6th October York professional boxers Harry Matthews and Danny Holmes were both in action at the Barnsley Metrodome. Matthews, boxing for the 41st time as a professional, won his central area title final eliminator over 10x3 minute rounds at Super-middle weight against Ben Davies on points, 95-94, in an absolute barnstormer of a contest. Unfortunately, Danny Holmes had a less successful night as he lost via a 2nd

round TKO against Barnsley’s more experienced Ben Wager in a Central Area Lightweight title. This was Holmes unbeaten run ending, but will have learnt much from the experience of the opportunity to fight for a title and trainer and manager Glenn Banks is confident he will rise again. The self- proclaimed Pocklington Rocket Matthews is currently in negotiations for the Central Area Title fight. More details will be in next month’s column.

C U T E S TR STO WA WAY EVE

You might have heard about cats and birds accidentally being taken along for rides in cars, but a koala? Nope. Well, it happened to one driver in Adelaide, Australia, when she heard a strange sound coming from her tyre. After investigating she found an adult kola gripping to her suspension... following a ten mile drive! The female koala was visibly shaken, so emergency services were called to remove the wheel and take the animal to a vet. Despite the shock, and the amazement that she wasn’t crushed, the cutie pie creature was later released back into the wild and continues to do well. You might not find a marsupial in your wheel arch in York, but be sure to check your vehicle every once in while anyway – this is the time of year when little animals go hunting for cosy places to kip.

LOST YOUR KEYS?

DON'T BOTHER FINDING THEM

- BRIGHT SPARKS Would you buy an electric car in the next five years? According to a survey carried out by Total EV magazine, over half of you would. 1000 UK motorists were quizzed about battery-powered cars, with 51% saying they assumed they would buy one prior to 2022. Apparently the main concerns of those who say they wouldn’t buy an electric car was the lack of charging points, the cost of the cars, and also not really knowing much about them. It’s interesting to see that the (slight) majority are well up for the electric change-over and dumping petrol and diesel cars – something the environment desperately needs. Its not often a slight majority vote benefits the country. Tee hee...

According to BMW, the humble car key has had its day. Ian Robertson, chief of sales at BMW, spoke at the Frankfurt Motor Show about the future of how we unlock our cars. Ian said, “Honestly, how many people really need it? They never take it out of their pocket, so why do I need to carry it around?” BMW already offer some customers the chance to unlock their vehicles using a special smartphone app, and it seems that will be expanded to cover more of their fleet as the years tick by. Soon your keys could be completely obsolete, and you’ll reach for your phone when heading to the car. But wait, what if your phone battery is flat? And what if the zombies are chasing you and you need to drive away? Oh God, the future is awful! Isn't it funny when criminals hurt themselves? If you're searching YouTube for a fun video of violent idiots getting what they deserve, check out the latest offering from Wiltshire Police. They posted CCTV footage of two moped thieves pinching a bike and then immediately crashing into a lamppost. One of the scoundrels awkwardly limps away, hands in pockets, while his accomplish attempts the same, but falls down in agony. The other guy just keeps walking. If they were attempting an innocent look, somebody should have told them that innocent accident victims tend not to immediately wander off after a crash, nor do they abandon their injured friends. Needless to say, both were later arrested. We're guessing they had their memberships to MENSA cancelled and they had to give back those honorary doctorates they'd both previously earned.

YOUR HOME & GARDEN

Knocking through We hear from Mel Collier of JDL... It is common place in this country for older houses to have separate bathrooms and toilets, usually next door to each other. The most common question I get asked is ‘is it worth knocking through’. I always reply the same way, which is ‘what are you trying to achieve?’ Answer: “To gain more space” More often than not, my advice here is ‘no’. Most separate toilet rooms are only big enough to house the WC itself, so in effect, if you knocked through one into the other, you would only gain the space where the wall stood, which would be around 4”. In a bathroom, you cannot do a lot with a space of 4” so the savings of not knocking through far outweighs the cost of demolition. If you are lucky enough to have a toilet in the bathroom as well as the separate one, and you think you could manage with just one, then it is worth looking at the space and seeing what you can do with it. I have, in the past, used the toilet room as a space for a shower or a recessed feature space for a basin. Answer: “Convenience” Most of the time, in this instance, my answer is yes. It can be a bind (and sometimes unhygienic) if the

toilet room does not have washing facilities and you have to walk into the bathroom to wash your hands, but there are always a few more questions to answer first. Could you fit a basin into the existing toilet space? Could you fit a toilet into the bathroom space as it is? If you are used to having a separate toilet, you may think just one toilet in the bathroom is convenient, but what happens when somebody is in the shower and you’re caught short? Here at JDL we have the facility to produce a 3D design for you based on your actual space. This will enable you to visualise what it will look like and whether you actually gain anything by doing it. We’re also here to help and advise on alternatives throughout the process, and to put costs together so you have a full understanding of the project you are about to undertake.

RIGHT PRICE RENTAL Want it, rent it...

I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve discussed renting of home appliances and televisions with friends, only for them to ask incredulously, “people don’t still rent, do they?” Well, the answer is yes, and in greater numbers than ever. The renewed enthusiasm for renting has lead us to re-launch our rental scheme with lower prices than ever. So what’s making the rental of products like washing machines so relevant to our customers? First off, as a nation we are now renting more “things” than we have ever done, and in particular a lot of younger people are renting their accommodation. This means they don’t want to have to drag appliances around with them when they move home, as it’s far easier to take a short term rental and just hand the goods back after twelve months.

PEACE OF MIND Secondly there is huge peace of

mind with a rental product, with free delivery, installation and same day repairs available should anything go wrong. We are also on the end of a phone if you are struggling to work out how to access BBC iPlayer, for example, on your television set. Thirdly, we don’t all have the foresight to save for a rainy day, so when the old washer dies and we need a new one quickly, it’s not always possible to buy the one we would like straight away. For some it may be better to rent as there is no need to save up: just ring us and get the machine you want today for a small monthly fee. Finally, with rental equipment you will never be out of date as you are free to upgrade your products every year. More-over you will get free set-up on the new piece of equipment and, best of all, it might not even cost any more than the old one due to hardware costs coming down every year. If you are interested in renting give us a call on 01904 628676 or check out our dedicated web page at www.htodd.co.uk/rentals

YOUR HOME & GARDEN

GUIDE

B O N F I R E N I G H T PA R T Y ! Whether you're setting off your own fireworks, or just watching the neighbours', Bonfire Night is a great chance to host a garden party. Here are some ideas.

HEAT

COMFORT To prevent against sore necks, why not offer your party-goers a comfortable reclining seat? This pair of cushioned deck chairs are adjustable, and the padding can be removed and washed – handy in case a really big firework goes off and Uncle Kevin spills his White Russian in fright. n £60.99 for the pair from www.wayfair.co.uk

ALERTNESS

LIGHT

Is your Bonfire Night Party a late one? Are people attending having been to see other firework displays and bonfires? If so, offer them something to drink other than the usual beers and wines. This Handpresso Kit makes espresso without the need for electricity, meaning you can have a tasty cup of Joe, even when far from the house. n £139 from www. thecoffeemate.co.uk

Unfortunately Bonfire Night traditionally takes place in November, a month known for being chilly, especially after dark. To that end, warm you guests up with this 2kW Freestanding Bulb Heater, to keep them happy as they sip their hot choccies and gaze up at the sky. n £44.99 from primrose.co.uk

GRUB Peckish work, all that oo-ing and ah-ing, so make sure your guests are well fed with some home – or rather, garden – cooked food. This outdoor oven from The Garden Oven Company ain't cheap, but will let you cook your party treats in the most traditional and authentic of ways. n £699 from www.garden-oven.co.uk

The firework display might only last a few minutes, so for the rest of the night shower your guests with the gentle warming glow of this super long fairy light set. There's 40 metres to play around with, so even the biggest of gardens should be covered. n £99 from www.lights4fun.co.uk

Trees Every garden, no matter the size, should have a tree. As well as the aesthetic value of their bark, flowers, foliage and fruits they also perform other important roles such as screening unsightly buildings and objects, providing shade, reducing noise levels, acting as a wind break, providing habitat for insects and small birds, and cleaning up airborne dust and pollution. Trees are available for even the smallest courtyard or patio garden. Dwarf varieties and rootstocks of many fruit trees including cherries, peaches, pears and nectarines are available and lend themselves ideally to growing in large pots. Also many varieties of ornamental plants are grafted on to stems that go on to produce small trees growing up to 2.4m-3m (8-10ft). Examples of these include Photinia, Euounymus, Prunus,

52

throughout the winter and early spring.

Cotoneaster and Salix. These too are ideal for growing in pots.

Some of the best trees for the average size modern suburban garden include: • Amelanchier canadensis ballerina (Snowy Mespilus). This is a small tree with an upright habit eventually reaching 3-4m (10-12ft), the new foliage emerges bronze and at the same time a profusion of small white flowers are produced. The foliage fades to green over the summer turning again into fiery shades of red and orange in autumn. • Prunus x subhirtilla autumnalis rosea (Pink Autumn Cherry). A small spreading tree reaching 3-4m (10-12ft) high and wide. As the name suggests it starts to produce its small pale pink, single flowers in late October and continues

• Prunus ‘Snow Showers’ (Weeping Cherry). This small tree has a very narrow weeping habit with an eventual size of no more than 1.8m (6ft) high and 1m (3ft) wide. The entire weeping branches are completely smothered in single white flowers from the end of March into April. Again it has the added bonus of good autumn foliage colour. • Pyrus calleryana chanticleer (Ornamental Pear). An incredibly underrated medium sized tree with an narrow pyramidal habit eventually reaching 6-8m (18-24ft). It produces large quantities of very hardy frost resistant creamy white flowers in April, making it much more reliable than some of the earlier flowering cherries. The glossy green foliage turns brilliant shades of purple and claret in October with the leaves often persisting on the tree until well into December. • Malus ‘Gorgeous’ (Ornamental Crab Apple). A compact tree living up to its name, often grafted onto a semi-

dwarfing rootstock that gives an eventual height of around 4-6m (12-18ft). Sweetly scented apple blossom pink flowers are produced in abundance during late April and May, followed by glossy red and yellow crab apples that persist on the tree well into November. They can also be picked and used to make crab apple jelly. • Sorbus ‘Autumn Spire’. This small tree has a narrow upright habit eventually reaching 4-5m (12-15ft). Clusters of creamy white flowers are produced in May, these are followed by golden yellow berries by late August. It really comes into its own during late September and October when it produces some of the best autumn foliage colour of any small tree, these fiery reds and purples really help to show off the bright golden berries.

GOT A GARDENING QUESTION? Ask

CHRIS BROWN from BROWN NURSERIES If you have a question for Chris, please email info@yourlocallink.co.uk. Call Chris on 766266.

Q.

My borders have some large perennials that have stopped flowering, or that flower poorly. Could you give me some advice, please?

plant the new sections immediately after division at the same depth from which you took them. Firm in and water well.

Dividing plants not only regenerates what might have become a sad-looking plant, but is also an easy and cost-effective way of increasing your plant stocks. Many perennials will deteriorate over time, slowly dying out in the centre, unless they are lifted and divided every three of four years.

I have grown a clematis montana Elizabeth over a pergola. Can you tell me when to prune it, please? It says Group One on the label and I don't understand what that means.

Dig up over-crowded clumps with a fork, disturbing the roots as little as possible. Shake off excess soil and locate the best point for division. Discard diseased parts, as well as the central part of the plant. Divisions from the outer section of the clump will grow into new, healthy plants, but make sure there are both healthy roots and shoots in all divided parts. You can divide some plants with your hands, but some tougher roots will need to be cut with a clean, sharp knife. Very tough, vigorously rooted clumps may need to be divided using two forks placed back-to-back in the centre of the clump to provide additional separation and leverage. Hand forks will suffice in some cases, but full-sized forks might be required for others. Always ease the forks apart gently, teasing out the roots to separate them, rather than wrenching them violently apart and breaking the roots. Re-

54

Q.

Clematises are divided loosely into three groups, based on when they flower, and these groups are called One, Two, and Three. When buying a new clematis you will save yourself a lot of pruning indecision later on if you take the time to find out the group and make a note of it. Group One: Minimal pruning is required for these. They flower in spring or early summer, directly on last year's ripened stems. They usually have small flowers and need only a light trim. If the plant becomes untidy, tangled and congested, you can prune it after flowering to control it. Group Two: They have light pruning needs. Group Two plants produce large flowers early in summer or midsummer,

with some varieties continuing to flower well into autumn. They flower on short stems produced in the current season, which grow on last season's ripe wood. Lightly prune in the spring before the plant starts to actively grow. Group Three: These have quite hard pruning requirements. They flower late in the season, from mid to late summer, and possibly through to autumn, producing blooms on the current year's stems. In early spring, before growing starts, cut back all of last year's growth to just above the lowest pair of healthy buds, approximately 30cm (12â&#x20AC;?) above the soil level. Take great care when training, as the stems can be very brittle and prone to breaking.

Hope they flower well!

GREEN MANURES: THE LOWDOWN TONY CHALCRAFT GIVES US THE LOWDOWN ON OUR GARDENS.

I like to grow in an environmentally friendly way, and so, in theory at least, I'm very attracted to the idea of green manures. However, I have to confess that green manuring is a technique I rarely use. Experimentation has taught me that on a garden or allotment scale the advantages of green manures are often outweighed by the disadvantages. Before we look at these let’s be clear what is meant by ‘green manure’. Green manure has nothing to do with the rear end of an animal. Rather it is any plant grown to preserve and, in some cases,

enhance the nutrients in the soil. In practice there are no more than a dozen plants commonly used for this purpose on a non-farm scale in the UK. Those I’ve used include mustard, grazing rye, phacelia, winter tares and field beans. Other common ones are alfalfa, buckwheat, several clovers, and fenugreek.

winter. Phacelia is less hardy but in recent years has stood outside without a problem. The big advantage of all of these is that the mass of foliage they throw up will protect the soil, minimising the leaching of nutrients by rain and helping to preserve structure.

TRICKY

However, it is important to remember that most of these green ‘manures’, unlike animal manures or garden compost, will not provide much in the way of extra goodness to the soil. Some of the deeper rooted types may pull up some nutrients from the depths. Others, for example the field beans and winter tares, which are legumes and therefore able to ‘fix’ nitrogen from the air, will add a little nourishment, but none are likely to have the replenishing effect

So why am I lukewarm about green manures? There are several reasons, but perhaps the most important is that many green manures grow best in the warmer months so that they occupy space that could otherwise be growing vegetables. Alfalfa, buckwheat, the clovers and fenugreek all really need spring or summer sowing to provide good ground coverage. Other green manures are hardier and can be sown in the late summer and autumn as ground used for early crops becomes vacant. Grazing rye, mustard, winter tares and field beans will survive the

of generous dollops of animal manure.

TROUBLES If these were the only issues then perhaps I’d use green manures more readily, but there can be quite a lot of other problems. A bulky green manure crop, even grazing rye, is a

real challenge to chop up and incorporate into the soil. For a farmer with a tractor it’s no problem, but with a spade, or even a rotovator – well, you try it on thick-stemmed mustard a metre high. And then there are slugs which find the mass of foliage a handy hideaway and the birds that eat the seeds at sowing time if not netted. Added to this there’s the comparatively high cost of buying green manure seed for small scale use and the fact that many green manures are in the same families as vegetables, thereby posing a disease risk. So, green manures: great in theory but in practice I’m not so sure. Don’t let me put you off though, especially if you’ve vacant ground that needs covering. Here, sown at the right time and dug in before becoming unwieldy, green manure might be just the thing.

YOUR FAMILY

Sarah has something to say. Just keep it to yourself, will you? Just before the magazine goes off to the magical printing elves each month, I like to have a flick through and see what all the other columnists are saying. I like to do that as it makes me feel special – as if I'm the first to get a sneak peak at the magazine before anyone else. It is my sole justification for the crown with 'I'm #1' printed on it that I wear in bed. BUT... this month I wasn't impressed. Howard (or 'H-Bomb' as he likes to be known – quite insensitive considering the

current global political climate) this month writes about Bonfire Night. Do check it out. However, I have to say that he sounds like a right miserable old sod, besmirching the great event that is 5th November, and labelling it “dumb”.

HEY YOU GUYS I love Bonfire Night, and always have. It has nothing to with enjoying the sight of a Guy burning atop a huge pile of wood and debris, nor just to stare gormlessly at the sky and dribble oos and ahs. I love it because it heralds the start of the festive season when people get together and enjoy some special and unique events that we deny ourselves the rest of the year. Halloween is very commercial and the whole occasion doesn't really feel like ours, does it? It feels like we've copied the Yanks after seeing how much fun it looked in TV

58

shows and movies, without realising that those TV shows and movies had huge budgets to dress up streets all halloweeny, and dozens of extras to mill around in impressive costumes and seem excited. In reality a British Halloween consists of handing out hastily purchased 10p bags of Haribo to anyone who knocks on your door, dressed in a costume or not, through fear that said visitors will egg your house if you don't.

“So yes, Howard, I love “dumb” Bonfire Night” SNUGGLES But Bonfire Night, ahh Bonfire Night, is about getting out of the

house to be where other people are, and huddling up together despite the late autumn chill. It serves like a reminder that this is the time of year when we should all be coming together and enjoy ourselves right through to the New Year. So yes, Howard, I love “dumb” Bonfire Night and look forward to spending the evening with friends and family being wowed by pyrotechnics, warmed by a bloomin' massive fire, and scoffing down some over-priced hot dogs. Felt good to get that off my chest. Right, which other columnist shall I have a go at next? Oi, Rachel Ragg! Stop being The Daily Mail personified! That got her.


...don't be an idiot. Here are a few Bonfire Night mishaps that made me chuckle

YOUR FAMILY

Remember, remember...

O-BAN THAT TECHNICIAN The Scottish town of Oban was treated to a quick fireworks display in 2011, when a show that was meant to last 30 minutes all went off in just one. Turns out the wiring was incorrectly put together, resulting in all fireworks shooting off at once. A poor, lone town councillor had to to explain that "I have some terrible news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fireworks have all gone off at once." Bless 'em.

AND THE DARWIN AWARD GOES TO... Devon Staples, a 22 year old resident of Portland, Maine, decided to celebrate 4th July in a very unique

way in 2015. Devon, fuelled by beer, thought it would be especially patriotic to set off a large firework... from the top of his head. After the firework ignited, the force killed Devon instantly. Don't be like Devon, kids.

Autumn Watch Things to look out for in the garden this month Winter is starting to set in this month, so your help is required. In terms of mammals, hedgehogs and badgers could do with a helping hand in November, especially where grub is concerned. You can actually buy suitable food for both these species at pets stores, but dog food always goes down well, too - especially with our prickly friends. Hey, be sure to check your bonfires before lighting them – if you built it the day before lighting, as hedgehogs might have moved in thinking it a cosy spot to hibernate. Our winter flying visitors are now starting to arrive, and you might notice an increase in geese and ducks by the rivers and ponds (this is your goose poo warning). The skies will also welcome the likes of redwings and bramblings from the north. Remember to keep you birdbath free of ice and topped up, and this is great time to start loading up your bird feeders. You could also look into installing a bat nesting box in your garden, but this is something that requires a good deal of research first.

CARE AND CARE ALIKE Bits and bobs for those who care for someone...

BE THEIR EYES If you take care of someone who is blind or lives with sight-loss, or if you see someone in the street who might need some assistance getting around, here is some advice from the RNIB: • Introduce yourself and be sure to talk directly to the person who needs help. • If they ask you to guide them somewhere, let them take your arm, don't grab theirs. • Warn them of kerbs and steps as you approach, and say whether

they go up or down. • Point out potential hazards before you and say where they are. • If you are guiding someone into a seat, place their hand on the back of the seat before they sit down, so they can orientate themselves. • Don't walk away without saying that you are leaving. Get more advice about how to help people effected by sight loss, as well as details on the benefits that carers are entitled to, at www.rnib.org.uk

Cobolt Talking Clock. As well as having a conventional LCD time display, this clock requires just a tap on the top and it will tell you the time and date in a clear voice. n £11.15 from www. cobolt.co.uk

Do you care?

If you care for someone on a fulltime basis, or know someone who does, we know of just the place. York Carers Centre are getting involved with Carers Rights Day on 24th November. It is the perfect opportunity to learn about the rights of carers, such as what they are entitled to in terms of benefits and financial aid, and also how the Centre offers support and friendship to those who look after other people.

York Carers Centre has all the information you could possibly need, regardless of if you care full time, part time, or think you're about to start caring for someone. There are social events, discounts at local businesses available, and an advice line every Wednesday, 5-8pm. They can give continued support while you care for someone, and also let you meet other carers to share stories, offer advice, and make friends.

HEALTH & BEAUTY FOR YOU

ASK THE EXPERT

BODY CONTOURING This month resident beauty expert, Dr Saleena Zimri, talks about a kind of contouring that we hadn’t heard about before and how you could achieve it with The Body Jet system. So you've put in the back work, exercised regularly and watched what you've eaten. But there’s just one spot that won't budge. If you have issues with stubborn areas of fat that don’t cooperate, regardless of diet and exercise, Liposuction could be highly beneficial. It’s worth mentioning that this is not a weight loss procedure, it’s for body shaping and contouring.

LOCAL ANAESTHETIC

THE BODY-JET SYSTEM

TREATMENT AREAS

Here at Skin Doctor, we use a unique liposuction treatment that uses gentle water jets to remove fat from the body.

Virtually any area of the body can be treated with liposuction. Popular areas include: Tummy, thighs, arms, knees, chin, neck, and chest for males.

The pressure of a fine, fan-shaped water-jet is adjusted to the connective-tissue structures in order to detach the fat cells which are then

The system is comfortably used in cases of large volume areas and very fine detail liposuction.

[

removed immediately. It causes much less trauma than the conventional method and post op, clients can anticipate less pain and bruising. No need to go under. Body-Jet liposuction is performed under local anaesthetic. This reduces the time you need to be with us and avoids recovery from a general anaesthetic and overnight hospital fees.

“NO NEED TO GO UNDER. BODY- JET LIPOSUCTION IS PERFORMED UNDER LOCAL ANAESTHETIC.”

[

CONTOURING The fat taken during the procedure, known as autologus fat, can actually be transferred elsewhere for body contouring, it works as a natural filling substance, with no risk of allergic reactions. Many

people use the fat for breast enlargement or reconstruction, buttock shaping, wound treatment and facial rejuvenation.

SKIN DOCTOR CLINICS, Offering a wide variety of Murad products, and with products ranging from non-surgical augmentation to minor surgery, the team at Skin Doctor on Blossom Street combine excellent medical practice and expertise with a friendly caring service.

THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE (31ST OCTOBER-4TH NOVEMBER) Following a hugely successful 2016 Australian and UK tour, Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company of South Australia’s critically acclaimed Things I Know To Be True returns to delight audiences this Autumn. As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, Things I Know To Be True tells the story of a family and marriage through the eyes of four grown siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations.

JACK & THE BEANSTALK (14TH DECEMBER-4TH FEBRUARY) The ever popular panto returns, featuring a line-up of much loved characters.

PATIENCE (8TH-11TH NOVEMBER) Presented by York Opera, the show tells the story of poet Reginald Bunthorne, and Patience, the village milkmaid, a pretty but down-to-earth working girl. Gilbert’s satire on affectation is still as valid and as funny as it was 136 years ago, and Sullivan’s music is at its most tuneful and witty. RITA, SUE AND BOB TOO (14TH18TH NOVEMBER) Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play, written when she was just 19, is a vivid portrait of girls caught between a brutal childhood and an unpromising future, and hungry for adult adventure. WAIT UNTIL DARK (21ST-25TH NOVEMBER) Set amidst the social turbulence of 60’s London the play follows the story of Suzy, a blind woman who left alone in her apartment becomes embroiled

Can Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter save the land from eternal winter and can Aslan, the mighty lion, rescue them whenever they get into trouble?

ALADDIN (9TH-16TH DECEMBER) It's time for yet another rollicking romp of a panto, and this year Rowntree Players are whizzing you off to Peking. The evil Abanazar will stop at nothing to gain control of every magical artefact in the world. All that stands in his way are a cave of wonders, a rather strong willed princess and our hero Aladdin.

GRAND OPERA HOUSE

WAITING FOR GODOT (22ND25TH NOVEMBER) Two hungry, battered drifters wait by a dead tree. They might have been here yesterday. And they might well come back tomorrow. Unless Mr Godot arrives first. Which he might. If they’re lucky. Which they don’t tend to be.

HARROGATE FARMERS MARKET Cambridge Street; second Thursday of every month, 9am-3pm.

ALL RISE FOR THE GRAND Your Local Link was delighted to recieve an invite to the revamped Rise Restaurant inside the Grand Hotel & Spa so we could give you a tasty little insight into their Small Plate menu. Here’s what Account Manager Kelly and her friend meg thought of it... With live music playing in the background, and with a clear view of the chefs toiling away in the kitchen, we took our seats in The Rise Restaurant, just inside the entrance to the hotel itself. The newly decked out interior is bright and very modern, and there was a great atmosphere. The Rise serves 'small plate' dishes, which basically means the portions are smaller than you might expect, but it allows you to taste a greater number of things. Meg and I opted for the Market Menu; a simplified menu of two or three courses. Obviously we went for three course, because y'know...

DINNER IS SERVED For starters I went for the scallops while Meg ordered the roasted and pickled beetroot, ewes curd and pumpkin seeds. My scallops were nice and juicy and

worked well with cauliflower on the side. Meg loved hers, and the beetroot was complimented by ewe's curd which was really creamy. For our main course we both ordered the juniper roasted venison. The small strips of meat were complimented by celeriac, raisins, and bilberries – all presented exquisitely. It was truly delicious and we both could have eaten it again immediately. Also on the main course menu is fried duck eggs, gilt head bream, and poached breast of corn-fed chicken. We had a nosey at other diners' plates – it all looked great. I was happy to see that the dessert portions were surprisingly large, and I went for The Rise churros, while Meg had the chocolate delice. The churros were incredible and very sweet, and Meg must have loved her delice as she shut up for a good few minutes. The service by the staff was great, and we were served impressively quick and smoothly. Our water was topped up without asking, while the bar was well stoked with a huge selection wines and cocktails. We had fantastic time at The Rise and couldn't recommend it more. n Find out more at www.thegrandyork.co.uk Fancy dining there yourself... FOR FREE? Turn to our Competition pages at the front of the magazine for a chance of winning a meal for two at The Rise.

Why should you install a Resin Drive? That’s simple; our product naturally drains water through it which means no puddles. Also, with a slip resistant surface it provides better traction for tyres and gives more grip for when you walk on it, making your drive a safe place to be!
