‘Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine’ - for all the Family! BUT……. as we all start
‘Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine’ - for all the Family!
BUT……. as we all start the
lengthy process of preparing
for ‘Glad Tidings and Great
Joy’, many of us will be
groaning as to how we will get
everything, as usual, finished
on time, without having a
nervous breakdown, writes
Sarah Green, from the
Bunbury Agency
Why not book a Temporary
Housekeeper or Domestic to
put the house in order, or a
Cook to ease the burden of
all the catering? Do you need
someone to care for a family
member who may be on their
own at Christmas?
A Temporary or Respite Carer
may be just the solution.
Personally, I love the actual
festivities but the run up to
Christmas absolutely exhausts
me. It’s not just the pressures
of buying the presents and
food, but as I am sure we
have all experienced, getting
the family organised and in
agreement, can be the most
stressful element. My family
is certainly no exception!
Finally, I would like to take
this opportunity to thank my
office staff and all our Carers,
Nannies and Domestic Staff,
who as always have been so
committed to working for the
Bunbury Agency throughout
the year. I would like to
wish them and all our clients
who have used our services a
very Happy Christmas and a
peaceful New Year.
Remember, we provide:
l Flexible and tailor
made care for the
elderly – daily and
residential

for local qualified and
l Nannies, Mother’s

Cemetery clean up

COunCIL accountants have made a real difference to Chester’s Overleigh Cemetery in Handbridge. The Financial Management staff removed vegetation from memorial stones, undertook a general tidy up, and carried out a leaf and litter collection. Also there on the day were staff from the Cemeteries and Crematorium Service and Streetscene. In addition a local memorial mason was also on

hand and local historian Len Morgan gave a talk to the volunteers on the history of the cemetery. Handbridge Park Councillor neil Sullivan said: “The eighteen-strong group worked really hard and made a real difference to Overleigh Cemetery. “Volunteers are continuing to undertake a great deal of work at Overleigh Cemetery and the latest was a prime example of what can be achieved.”

on the beat

with Police Community Support Officer Jo Pendrey

Local policing priorities have been set following engagement with the local community and based on information fed back at surgeries held with local residents:

information fed back at surgeries held with local residents: • Recent spate of Bike Thefts in

• Recent spate of Bike Thefts in the Handbridge area particularly at West Cheshire College.

• Incidents of anti social behaviour reported

within Edgars Field, particularly after school hours. Plans to address the issue PCSO Pendrey and her colleagues from the Chester Outer neighbourhood Policing Team to provide regular high vis patrols at the college and surrounding areas. Bike etching sessions are due to take place over the coming weeks.

PCSO Pendrey has been working closely with the Community Safety Wardens who have provided extra patrols within Edgars Field over recent weeks. These patrols will continue to take place until the issues raised have been resolved.

Local Priorities

• You said - Parking problems causing congestion outside Schools in the Overleigh and Westminister Park areas, normally as a consequence of school pick ups and drop offs.

• We did – PCSO Pendrey and PCSO Fox have been working together

distributing parking leaflets around the schools offering advice for parents on where and how to park safely.

Handbridge beat meeting Monday 12th December 11am-12noon, at The Old Dee Bridge, (opposite The Ship Inn).

If you have any questions or see me on patrol please feel free to stop and chat or alternatively contact either myself on 0845 458 6375 or by e-mail at joanne.pendrey@cheshire.pnn.police.uk

WINTER SOLUTIONS

call 350398 www.overleighroundabout.co.uk WINTER SOLUTIONS ALTHOUGH we have experienced record warm temperatures for

ALTHOUGH we have experienced record warm temperatures for October and November this year, it’s never too early to prepare the skin for the winter months when the body has to adapt to central heating indoors and freezing weather outside.

We have to protect the body and the skin from dehydration. Drinking plenty of water is essential, particularly during the party season when we may be drinking more alcoholic drinks which can cause dehydration to the body. Exfoliation is essential dur- ing the winter months to help remove the dry skin from the surface. Your moisturiser will also work more effectively instead of just softening the dry, dead cells on the surface. Try to exfoliate the skin two to three times a week and then follow with your moisturiser. A nourishing moisturising

face mask can be applied once a week. Some light moisturising masks can be left on overnight for maximum effect. However, remember to wash it off before confronting the family in the morning! A professional in salon peel is excellent for promoting the pro- duction of moisture deep in the dermis. A PRIORI (R) Advanced AHA Peel will intensely increase hydration by 100% in just four weeks and the increase of exfoliation will improve in one – two weeks if used in conjunction with the home care products. Samantha and I would like to take this opportunity to wish

you all a very happy Christmas. We look forward to the New Year with great anticipation when we are sure Jo Lewis, sci- entist and creator of PRIORI (R) , will excite us with even more innovative new products. This year’s PRIORI (R) Lash Recovery Serum has been very exciting. My eyelashes are now as thick and as long as they were in my teens! You just have to apply it at bedtime every night and after two weeks you will see an improvement, and within six weeks they look amazing! As we age our lashes and brows dimin- ish as does the condition of the hair. My thinning eyebrows are

much improved too and the areas where there were gaps now have hairs growing again. There are positive results for people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatment. Ap- plication of the Lash Recovery Serum after they have completed their treatment has helped to ac- celerate the new growth of their eyelashes and eyebrows.

For December we are offering a £10 discount on The Lash Recovery Serum.

CHESTER CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL

Spanish stars at the Catholic High School

THiRTy students and their teachers have returned from a fantastic school visit to the Catalan capital Barcelona. With everything from museums to architecture, and from sports stadia to the Hard Rock Café, it was the trip of a lifetime for the students – with one Sixth Form student celebrating his 18th birthday while he was away. The visit is organised by the Spanish and Art departments at the school, and the opportunity to use their Spanish is invaluable to the language students. Fran Vickers is aiming to study languages at Leeds University next year and she said: “Estupendo – this visit is really worthwhile for me. Not only speaking and learning Spanish but also looking at the culture and the history of the area is just superb.” Two of the students are applying for places at university to study architecture. The time spent hearing about and then seeing the Basilica Expiatori of Sagrada Familia was second to none. Sara Hammond,, who is applying to Cam- bridge, said: ‘The story of the commissioning,

planning and building of this amazing basilica is a real inspiration, and the fact that it is still unfinished means you can still see how Gaudi’s vision is being turned into reality.’ One member of the group will certainly not forget the visit as Neil McCallum celebrated his 18th birthday in the Parc Guell, with traditional Spanish cakes, and then later in the Hard Rock Café in the Placa Cataluyna in central Barcelona. The visit was organised in conjunction with ‘Spanish Star’, a family run company headed up by Michael and Estrella Chapman. Michael told us ‘We don’t always have our evening meals in the Hard Rock Café, but on special occasions it is a great treat for the children.’ Head of Spanish at The Catholic High School Rosie Carr added: ‘We have been coming to Barcelona for many years now and the students always get a tremendous amount from the visit. it is fantastic to see the students enjoying the visit and to hear them enthuse about it’.

Local artist’s success in major national art exhibition

WORk by local Pulford artist Andrew kinmont has been selected from almost 700 national and international entries to appear alongside paintings of some of Britain’s leading figurative artists. The Royal institute of Oil Painters is the only British institution devoted to celebrating the medium of oil painting. Founded in 1882, the Royal institute chooses only the very best submissions and past exhibitors have included Walter Sickert, Dame Laura knight, Fantin Latour and Auguste Rodin. When notified of his acceptance, Andrew said:

“Not only is this wonderful national recognition of my work, it also raises much needed awareness of artists working outside London, particularly in the north. Hopefully it will encourage more local artists to put themselves forward on the larger Uk art stage.” His work is inspired by the local Cheshire and North Wales landscape and sells nationally and abroad. The Royal institutes Annual Exhibition will be on display at the Mall Galleries, near Trafalgar Square, from 7th - 18th December.

gaRdening by JaneT HeaTH

deCeMbeR is a quiet time of year when there is little colour in the garden and the remains of brown foliage is the dominant feature. if possible, try to design your garden so that there is an area of winter colour visible from a frequently used window and also at the entrance to the house. This will give you some cheering colour in the depths of winter.

Cyclamen have lovely marbled green leaves which contrast well with the golden and green foliage of evergreen shrubs such as Elaeagnus x ebbingei Limelight or the yellow leaved Choisya ternata Sundance. Plant some around the shrub for winter interest and add some small daffodils and crocuses for colour in February. Enjoy the beauty of frost on the leaves of plants such as the robust purple leaved Heucheras, holly or the indestructible Euphorbia robbiae.

If you want scent in winter I recommend the winter box, Sarcococca hookeriana or confusa varieties. These unassuming little shrubs have evergreen foliage and highly scented tiny white flowers in winter so put a couple near your door or in an

enclosed spot and you will be rewarded with scent in January or February. The evergreen shrub Skimmia japonica also has slightly fragrant flowers, flowers over winter and will tolerate almost any position in sun or shade.

and will tolerate almost any position in sun or shade. Jobs to do in December include

Jobs to do in December include digging over the vegetable bed and adding a layer of organic matter on the surface of the soil to rot down over winter. I would also recommend that you mulch the flower borders in winter. Use well rotted manure, or rotted green waste which can be bought from garden centres or your local recycling centre. Put a layer about 2ins deep around all your plants. This will act as a blanket keeping the soil further down, unfrozen during freezing weather. Many plants were killed last winter because their roots were frozen for long periods of time and a layer of mulch can help protect the more tender plants.

Prune overgrown shrubs whilst the leaves are off the plants and you can see the old and new growth. Plant out bare rooted trees or roses once they arrive, provided the soil is not frozen.
