MILKMAN Robert Smith thwarted two teenagers who were trying to steal milk while he was
on his round in The Paddock, Tarporley, last month. Robert, who works for Briscoe’s Dairy,

Student relates quake tale

A TARVIN student was caught up in the recent New Zealand earthquake. Edward Reid, of

the building collapsed.

Ideas wanted for diamond celebration

Tarporley Parish Council are considering how the village might commemorate the
forthcoming Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
Initial thoughts have included a garden or public area. Refurbishment of the area on the north
west side of Burton Square could provide such an area, although a location closer to the
centre of the village might be preferable.
Since the subject of tree replacement is also currently engaging the council, the planting of
an appropriate native tree or trees might also be considered. The installation of a significant
piece of street furniture, such as a public clock, has also been popular over the years as a
means of commemorating such events.
People might also wish to celebrate with events at the time. Although the parish council
is unlikely to organise such events itself, it would be willing to act as a channel to enable
interested parties to co-operate.
In either case, we invite residents and organisations to air their views and ideas. Please
contact either the parish clerk or the chairman in the first instance.

New beginnings
at Kelsall
Methodist Church
Kelsall Methodist Church welcomes
its new Minister, Rev Sue Levitt, as the
Church enters an exciting period of
renovation and improvement.
Although her first appointment as an
ordained minister, Rev Sue has been
a Lay Chaplain for MHA in Naylor
Court, Ellesmere Port and Callin
Court Chester. She is married to Peter
who is also a Methodist Minister in
Rev Sue is looking forward to meeting
and becoming part of the Kelsall
community as well as working with
the congregation in their worship and
As part of this involvement a recent
Church Council meeting confirmed
plans for a Renewal Project which
will see the Church being made
into a more flexible worship space,
allow improved accessibility to the
building and, it is hoped, into a Rural
Arts Centre. This would enable the
Church to be used not only for worship
but also by the wider community
for concerts, demonstrations and
exhibitions, to name but a few.
‘’This is an exciting and innovative
scheme, making the building more
user friendly and flexible. We hope that
it will become a facility used by all the
village, in a variety of ways. We just
need to raise the money now!’’ says
Rev Sue.
Fundraising ventures are underway
including a jam and pickle sale (16th
October) and a table top sale (6th
November). Events will start at 10am
and all are most welcome.

Proprietor Kamal Parmar (left) manages

Kamal makes all the dishes herself with

She recently held an open evening for
locals to come and sample the food.
It was absolutely delicious and amazing
to watch Kamal produce her trademark

Kamal says: “I used to do the catering
for family parties and functions and so
starting my own take-away was a natural
progression for me.
“We use all the freshest ingredients

both the village and its’ local environment.
The free event starts at 12noon at Tarvin Community Centre, Meadow Close, and is to
be opened by the Lord Mayor. There will be advice on energy saving and renewable
energy technologies, fun games and activities for all the family, a free bicycle health
check available, performances from local youth groups and displays by Tarvin community
groups - even a “local lunch” – offering only locally sourced food.
Andrew Evans, of Tarvin Environment Group, said: “We have had great interest from
Tarvin residents in projects such as our community allotment scheme and thermal
imaging project.”

HEALTH AND BEAUTY with Angela Bartlett

Q . How do I know what ‘skin type’ I am? I have had my skin

‘analysed’ many times but the products recommended never
really address my skin problems.
A. You don’t mention what your skin problems are, or who your
‘analysers’ were, but there are several reasons why the skin
care products may not be working for you.
It could be an incorrect skin analysis. Incorrect analysis
depend on several factors. Firstly, the level of expertise of the
person who is ‘analysing’ your skin is key to getting a correct
analysis and a full picture of your skin type and problems.
Some skin types and problems are fairly quick and
simple to analyse, but others take much longer to
work out. Did your analysers spend enough time
looking at your skin and asking questions?
One of the most common problems with incorrect
skin analysis is viewing the skin when it is not
properly prepared. The skin must be completely
free from all makeup and should have been gently
cleansed and toned at least two hours prior to the

Gardening in October
Gardening by Janet Heath

ctober is a good month to move existing plants or plant out new plants
as the soil will still be warm from summer and moist which will enable
plants to settle in before winter.
Flowering perennials such as Phlox, perennial
Geraniums, Yellow Loosestrife Lysimachia punctata
or its relative the Chinese Loosestrife Lysimachia
clethroides, with wonderful white wavy cone shaped
flowers, all spread and can be dug up, split and
replanted. Phlox in particular, can become congested
and tend not to flower well after a few years. Splitting
them and replanting in enriched soil will rejuvenate

Shrubs can be moved now so if you have a shrub that

is in the wrong place, give it a can of water an hour or
so before moving, dig it up, being careful to dig up all
its root ball. When replanting, dig a hole larger than the
root ball, ensure that the soil is loosened all around the
planting hole so that the roots will be able to grow out
into the surrounding soil. Mix some well rotted manure
or planting compost in the soil and if the soil is dry, add
a watering can of water to the base of the hole. Backfill
with soil, firming in with your fingers (not your boot!),
and add another can of water.

Roses that are tall can be cut back before winter

although the main pruning is usually in March. This will
prevent the plant from being rocked in high winds. If
the leaves are diseased from blackspot and falling from
the rose, remove them as the spores can remain in the
ground to re-infect next season.

Plant bulbs in October, such as the tiny Iris reticulata,

daffodil and tulip bulbs, for flowering next year. Also try
hyacinths in pots outside as they will survive outdoors.
In my garden a previous owner planted them out in
the borders where they come up each year. I pick the
blooms to bring into the house for their scent. All the
above do well in pots with winter flowering pansies to
give colour in winter and spring.

Cut out the fruited canes of raspberries and harvest the

last apples from trees. Laying turf in October is ideal
as the soil below should remain moist to encourage
rooting and you will be less likely to walk on the lawn
and damage the turf in autumn.

Peckforton & Beeston WI

The talk at our September meeting was given by former pilot Barry
Smith and entitled ‘From Tiger Moths to Jumbos’. Members and
several visitors listened intently to Barry’s account of his life as a
pilot flying various types of aircraft during his career, as the title of
the talk suggests. His interest in flying began at age 15 when he
joined the Air Training Corps and within a year he was flying gliders
at Hawarden Airport. Throughout his career he visited many different
parts of the world and he was able to keep the audience amused with
several anecdotes of life in the cockpit.
Future events were also discussed. The next meeting will include a talk called ‘For
better or worse’ to be given by the Reverend Michael Burgess. Theatre trips to Mold and
Manchester were planned as well as a walk around Knutsford called ‘A Tour of Cranford’
on November 9th, The AGM will be held on November 3rd when business will be followed
by a 2-course supper. The Christmas party will be on December 10th.Why not come and
join us at the Peckforton Village Rooms with meetings starting at 7.30 pm? For more
information please telephone Judith Sherren on 01829 730071.
