Blindingly obvious way to keep warm this winter

A Chester & Wirral business owner is making the blindingly

obvious claim that window Blinds, Shutters & Curtains have a big part to play in the fight against rising energy bills over the coming months as autumn & winter approach.

Marc McQuilliam from Apollo Blinds believes that homeowners don’t recognise the full energy-saving capabilities of window blinds, shutters & curtains because they often regard them as more decorative items and forget they are a great weapon in the fight against heat loss escaping through windows.

He is keen to point out the importance of closing blinds and shutters to stop heat escaping through windows, then drawing your curtains across to make a massive difference to your home.

curtains across to make a massive difference to your home. “I know it’s a very simple

“I know it’s a very simple message, but one that a lot of homeowners don’t always heed and it’s astounding the amount of heat loss that can be prevented by diligently drawing blinds and closing shutters,” said Marc who owns Apollo Blinds Chester & Wirral (which has a new showroom in Handbridge Chester).

Wirral (which has a new showroom in Handbridge Chester). “Blinds and curtains can act as an

“Blinds and curtains can act as an all-important physical barrier in preventing heat escaping through windows and should be drawn at every opportunity during the winter months.”

Marc points to a study done in Edinburgh which used thermal images of random homes in the city to demonstrate how much heat is lost through windows.

“Duette® blinds are a modern take on pleated blinds and have a patented double-walled honeycomb design which allows them to form air pockets that give them energy-saving properties. They can

reduce the amount of heat that escapes through windows by a third during the winter and are also one

of the best blackout blinds on the market, as there are no stitching holes for light to penetrate through.

“Then there are shutters which come into their own during the winter months providing privacy and excellent energy-saving properties. As well as the traditional wooden ones, there is a new collection of attractive vinyl shutters which are superb at keeping heat in.”

While the focus is quite rightly on energy saving, Marc also says that blinds, shutters and curtain look stunning as well.

“As well as performing a vital function, blinds, shutters and curtains also look gorgeous with stunning fabrics and wood finishes which can set any room off a treat,” he said.

IN THE NEWS

CRIMEFILE

Some of the crimes reported in this area recently include the following:

l

Cavendish Mews – Three ‘No Parking’ signs were stolen

l

Sycamore Drive – Six solar lamps were stolen by the thieves who also stood on plants.

l

Castlecroft Road – A blue Sachs motorcycle was stolen from the back of the shops.

l

Curzon Close – An unlocked Peugeot ladies’ bicycle was stolen from the driveway.

l

Handbridge – Police arrested and charged a man after he was found to be in possession

of heroin. He was originally sighted on CCTV acting suspiciously.

l

Boundary Lane – A thief broke into a Renault Clio and stolen an electric guitar and bicycle

l

Thieves stole a large amount of lead from the roof of St Mary Church, Dodleston.

Handbridge Flower Club THiS month’s meeting is on Thursday 18th October at 1.45pm in St Mary’s Parish Hall, when Keith Smithies, a National demonstrator from Rhos on Sea will take “Autumn into Advent” as his theme. Visitors (£5) are welcome.

Dying trees to be cut down WORKS to remove a number of dying and diseased trees at the Dingle in Handbridge has begun. The trees were identified as dead, dangerous or dying through a professional tree report commissioned by the Council’s Greenspace team. The works are part of a larger project to increase safety, as well as improving the quality of the borough’s woodlands and the Council’s tree stock as a whole. Local member for Handbridge Park, Cllr Neil Sullivan, said: “Whilst nobody likes to see trees being removed from our open spaces in this case it is unavoidable and the only option open to us. “Each of the trees has been monitored by the Council’s Greenspace team for some time now and a decision has been taken to remove them for the safety of the public. “Should any of the trees fall they will land on one of the main roads into Chester or onto the paths in the Dingle that are used daily by lots of people walking into Chester. “We must put the safety of walkers and motorists first, which unfortunately on this occasion means the removal of the trees.”

Action Taken: PCSO Jo Pendrey along with her colleagues from the Chester Outer Neighbourhood Policing Team, Community Safety Wardens, Park Rangers and the Riverwatch team have provided high visibility patrols. Stop checks have been made of people causing any anti social behaviour or camping on the Meadows and youths have been advised and moved on from these areas.

There have been very few issues compared to last year. Where necessary, the anti social behaviour department were advised of the issues and letters were sent home to the parents of the youths involved.

SEBORRHOEIC KE

SEBORRHOEIC KE

These are brown crusty lumps found in adults usually over the age of 40. They used to be known as “seborrhoeic warts” or “senile warts”. As they are not actually warts (they are neither infectious nor contagious) and as senile was not a welcome description for anyone, let alone in their 40s, the condition was renamed!

The brown colour may vary from vary pale flesh coloured to dark brown to almost black. They vary in size from tiny to 2 inches

across. The shape can be round, oblong or irregular. They can be found singularly or in clusters. They appear anywhere on the body and the numbers increase with age. They are very common in women on their backs particularly under their bra and

extending out to under the arm. Men more commonly have them around their waist. Although not dangerous in any way they can be very unsightly.

The cause of seborrhoeic Keratosis

is an over thickening of the cells in the epidermis caused by sun damage, friction or rubbing. In a normal skin in the epidermis, which is the top layer, the basal

cells are formed at the base of the epidermis. Gradually these cells work their way to the top of the

skin or epidermis where they die and leave a layer of dead cells known as the keratin layer (hardened off cells). These dead cells act as a protective barrier. however, if that layer of keratin is subjected to friction or chafing, this layer becomes

thickened as it is producing abnormal amounts of keratin. This is why the surface is rough and crusty and the condition is slightly raised sitting on top of the skin.

seborrhoeic Keratosis used to be removed surgically under local anaesthetic and stitched, or was treated by freezing using liquid nitrogen, both methods leaving a scar after many months of healing.

electro Micro surgery (eMs) or Advanced Cosmetic Procedure (ACP) gently sloughs off the keratinised lesion using a sterilised electrolysis needle. A scab will form and after a few days will drop off naturally to reveal pale pink skin that will return to normal coloured skin in a matter of weeks. That particular seborrhoeic Keratosis

will not reform, but others may form in an area close to the site due to the reason for the problem in the first place, and those can be removed by the same method.

At The hough Green Clinic we treat seborrhoeic Keratosis after a detailed consultation. If there are any doubts to the identity of the lesion we will first require a visit to your doctor for verification in writing before any treatment commences. For any further information or help about this condition or any other skin conditions, please contact either myself or samantha.

Best ever results at QPHS

ONCE again Queen’s Park High School students celebrated the fact that they exceeded the school’s GCSE target as they collected their examination results. The year group achieved excellent results and managed to outperform the fantastic results the school achieved last year. The percentage

of students achieving 5 A*-C including English and Maths (60%) was the school’s best ever result with 71% of students gaining 5 A*-C; Stephen Casey, headteacher, said: “i am immensely proud of our students and the

results they have achieved.

to themselves and their families. i am delighted for those students who achieved a string of grades at A and A*, as well as all those who have worked exceptionally hard to achieve their target grades.

“Last year the school’s results were fantastic but this year we have done even better – a testament to the excellent learning partnership between our students, their families and the staff of QPHS.” A number of students achieved exceptional results and gained a string of high grades including the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. These included Joel Langmead who gained an outstanding 10 grade A*s and 3As. Other top performers included Thomas inns (7A*s and 8As), Freya Brewis (6A*s and

A number of subjects achieved outstanding

results including Triple Science with over half of all grades at A*/A, along with RE, Art and Design, Sports Studies and Textiles. English and Maths also performed strongly showing continued improvement and increasing the school’s English Baccalaureate success.

Graham Westoby, Year 11 Learning Manager added: ‘it has been a pleasure to work with this year group over the past four years, and i am very proud of the results our students have achieved. “Every student worked really hard individually, in classes and with teachers and mentors as part of our well established raising achievement programme. i think it is an excellent testament to everybody’s hard work that the year has culminated in achieving the school’s best ever results.

“i am thrilled that so many of them are coming

back to continue their education in our 6th form.”

A BUTCHER’S BLOG

with Bruce Edge, from Ernest W.Edge & Son Butchers, Handbridge

GAME IS BACk on THE MEnu

onE of the lovely things about British food are the Seasons. Eating fresh produce in season always seems to taste better and with a game season closed since February there is much to look forward to. All our wonderful game birds, rabbits and venison are now on the menu. The new game season is now underway and one of the true delights of Autumn is our increasingly popular local venison. Superb quality, sourced little more than one mile from the overleigh Roundabout! Venison is high in protein, low in fat and has fewer calories than other red meats. Venison is particularly low in saturated fatty acids and contains higher iron levels than other meats. Summed up, it is an excellent meat which ticks all the boxes and is available from the beginning of

october to the end of January.

one of my favourite recipes is Venison Casserole with Beer. Enjoy!

Venison Casserole with Beer – Serves 4

Ingredients:

900g diced venison shoulder | 2 tbsp oil | 2 onions, peeled and roughly chopped| 150g piece smoked streaky bacon or pancetta diced | 1 tbsp plain flour| 300ml beef or venison stock | 300ml brown ale| 2 tsp soft light brown sugar | 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed | 1-2 bay leaves | 2 sprigs of thyme| roasted baby carrots to serve

leaves | 2 sprigs of thyme| roasted baby carrots to serve Recipe: 1. Preheat the oven

Recipe:

1. Preheat the oven to 130C/Gas Mark

2. Heat 1 tbsp oil and fry the venison

in batches for 5-6 mins until browned on all sides, adding a little extra oil as necessary. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon to leave the juices. 2. Add onions to the casserole and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring occcasionally until lightly browned, add the bacon and fry for a further 2 minutes. Return all the meat and any accumulated juices to the pan. Add the garlic then stir in the flour. Gradually stir in the stock and ale, scraping up any juices stuck to the bottom of the pan. Heat, stirring until simmering.

3. Add in the sugar, bay leaves and thyme

and season with freshly ground black pepper. Cover the casserole with a tight fitting lid or foil and cook in the oven for at least 2 hours or until the meat is tender. Serve with roasted baby carrots.

Next month look out for my lovely “winter warmer” recipe for those cold dark nights. Bruce Edge, Ernest W.Edge & Son Butchers, Handbridge (www.chesterbutcher.com)

Best Front Garden and Container Display competition

THiS is the 8th year that the Westminster Park Residents’ Association has awarded prizes for the best front garden and container displays. Judging this year’s Best Front Garden and Container Display competition was, as ever, extremely difficult … but great fun. The overall standard of gardens in Westminster Park is excellent and pounding the pavements to view the front gardens was enjoyable and, in many cases, quite inspirational. There are some very talented and green-fingered residents living amongst us. Results Gardens 1st prize: Brenda and Geoff Donaldson, 19 Bartholomew Way. 2nd prize: John and Christine Guest, 71 Five Ashes Road. 3rd prize: Reta and Kamul Assand, 1 Winkwell Drive. This was awarded for Reta and Kamul’s community spirit as the well-planted border has been created from a piece of waste ground opposite their house. Containers Dave and Jenny Sale, Five Ashes Road.

News from Westminster Park Residents’ Association

www.wp-ra.org.uk

Have your say on threat to green belt

THE Westminster Park Residents’ Association (WPRA) is asking for people’s views about the potential for building new homes near the area. Cheshire West and Cheshire Council is putting together its development plan and has set aside certain parcels of land for housing. One of these is the land bordering the Westminster

Park area which stretches from Wrexham Road down to the bottom of Lache Lane. Local councillor Neil Sullivan queried the additional housing needs in the area and also commented that “consultation” to date on this Study could only be described as “woeful”. in his piece to the WPRA newsletter, chairman David Pilling said: “There will, undoubtedly, be different opinions as to whether development on Green Belt Land should be permitted. i understand The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), Chester Civic Trust and English Heritage are concerned about the proposals and would welcome local support against this proposal.” He explained that the association could do nothing and let the land be used for building or maybe allow some development of high quality homes. But he questioned whether the area could sustain extra volumes of traffic and would the green belt survive ‘such an onslaught’ He added that the association could oppose development: “if agreement were given to one small piece of land (say 50 houses) then that would be the start of a steady encroachment on to that ribbon of land until slowly but surely the whole lot will be developed. “Who supposedly needs all these houses? Properties on the Estate are not selling or new tenants being found.” Any views on this subject should be sent to Jeremy Owens, Spatial Planning, Cheshire West & Chester Council, The Forum, Chester CH1 2HS and copied to local councillors Neil Sullivan and Razia Daniels before the consultation ends in mid-October.

Quiz night The Westminster Park Residents’ Association Quiz Night will be held on Saturday 6th October at WP Community Centre. Tickets cost £6 and include an excellent supper. Bar opens at 7.30 pm and the Quiz starts at 8pm. Tickets from committee members

Apple crushing day Bring your apples to our local shops on Saturday 27th October, between 9 am and 2pm for pressing into delicious juice! Chopping tables will be available, but please chop at home first to avoid the queue, and don’t forget to bring your containers for the juice! Last year, as part of a programme of public apple pressings at local shopping centres, Transition Chester organised a session in Westminster Park where residents were invited to bring along their apples and make juice out of them using the apple press and crusher. This year, with the apple press and crusher on loan to the Westminster Park Residents Association, we will run the event once again and hope to repeat the success of last year. The juice will keep in the fridge for three days or it can be frozen.
