TARPORLEY PARISH COUNCIL NEWSLETTER

Brook Road consultation

TARPORLEy parish councillors were dismayed by the late notification and short period of opening of the public consultation event for the Taylor-Wimpey proposals for the Brook Road housing and leisure development. Parish councillors were only notified a week in advance, whilst a leaflet drop advising residents of the event was made only four days before it took place on 11th January. A representative of HOW Planning, organisers of the consultation, apologised for the poor organisation. The consultation event took the usual form of publicity displays for Taylor-Wimpey and schematic views and montages of the current design concept. Again, parish councillors and many residents were concerned that the proposals deviated from their understanding of the site development principles previously agreed with CWaC planners. At the following parish council meeting, it was agreed that a meeting should be sought with the prospective developers in an attempt to resolve the matter. It is hoped that the meeting will have been held by the time you read this. In the meantime, residents who missed the consultation event may view the draft proposals at www.brookroadtarporley.co.uk.

Police Surgery
Tarporleys PCSO, Sheena Ayrton, will be holding an informal surgery at The Old Fire Station Coffee Shop on Wednesday 30th January between 10.30 and 11.30 a.m.. The aim is for members of the community to meet their local officers and to discuss any issues that they may have. Please feel free to call in. If the event is successful, Sheena intends to hold further surgeries on a regular basis. 10 To advertise call 01244 350398

Community car scheme


CHESHIRE Community Development Trust is looking for willing volunteer drivers to join a community car scheme. People register with the scheme and they go on all kinds of trips, including doctors, dentists, chiropodists, luncheon clubs, hairdressers, shopping and to visit friends. Many of the clients would have difficulty getting out of the house so the drivers provide a real lifeline for them The scheme operates locally within the former Vale Royal area. As a volunteer you can give as much or as little time as you are able. All they ask is that you have a car, are willing to undertake a CRB check and enjoy meeting new people and helping out within the local community. Some petrol expenses can be reimbursed. If you are interested please contact Tracey Welford on 01606 723180 or email twalford@ cheshirecdt.org.uk

Rosette reward for Peckforton restaurant


PECkFORTON Castle has been awarded its 3rd Rosette for culinary excellence by the AA board. The long-established Rosette scheme recognises successful cooking at different levels across the Uk. Success or failure in achieving Rosettes is based on one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant. Peckforton Castle joins an elite 10% of nationwide restaurants that have been bestowed with Three Rosettes and above for their outstanding achievement. The Rosettes are awarded for a restaurants selection and sympathetic treatment of the highest quality ingredients. Other areas that the Castles 1851 Restaurant were judged on include the timing, seasoning and the judgment of flavour combinations plus the intuitive service from staff and a well-chosen wine list. Chris Naylor, Managing Director of Peckforton Castle, said: This is a fantastic achievement for the Castle and something we have worked towards for the past two years. It is a testament to the creativity of our Head Chef Mark Ellis and our wonderful 1851 Restaurant team.

We feel very privileged to have become a member. This membership confirms that our elderly care services meet the high standards of the UKHCA and that we abide by their Code of Practice. Membership also entitles us to a huge range of additional services, support and valuable information, which we will pass onto our clients and staff, ensuring that we continue to provide the best and most up to date private home care and assistance available. Do you need someone to care for an elderly relative, your young family or your home? We pride ourselves on our traditional methods and very personal approach in the way we provide the following services and positions to our Employers and Staff: Carers, Companions - Maintain your independence by staying in the comfort of your own home, giving you and your family peace of mind. (Members of UKHCA).

Nannies, Mothers Helps & Maternity Nurses - Nursery, for young children is not always the most practical or cost effective answer. Imagine being able to go to work without the rush and stress of getting your children to nursery and school. Then imagine returning home to find all the work done enabling you to have family time with your children. With a qualified and experienced child carer, no matter how many children you have, the costs remain the same. (Members of the Association of Nanny Agencies - ANA). Housekeepers, Couples, Domestics - Trying to do a full time job, keeping your house under control and looking after your children can be a very stressful experience. Why not lighten the load with a little extra help? Au Pairs - Would you like an extra pair of hands to help you with your children and housework? This is the most cost effective solution to the demands of modern day life on the family. (Members of the British Au Pair Agencies Association - BAPAA).

70 new homes in Tattenhall


CHESHIRE West and Chester planners gave the go-ahead for 70 homes in Tattenhall. The proposed development by Redrow is for land at the rear of Harding Avenue. Three other planning applications for housing development in Tattenhall 110 at Chester Road, 137 homes at Greenlands and 68 homes at land opposite Brook Hall Cottages have all previously been refused by the Strategic Planning Committee. These have all been appealed and will be heard at a joint inquiry held by the Secretary of State. Local Councillor Mike Jones said: We have 385 dwellings plus 145 that have already been agreed. That is a total of 530 in a village of 847 houses. This is against a projected target of 300 over 20 years and means the 145 already agreed amounts to 10 years of backlog. In addition to that 33 houses are being built at the nearby village of Milton Green and the Planning Committee agreed last week a further 24 in Beeston. The Strategic Planning Committee had originally refused the Harding Avenue application on landscape grounds but the application had been resubmitted with comprehensive landscape and visual impact assessment. Unwanted bikes for Africa THE Rotary Club of Tarporley is supporting the campaign to collect unwanted bikes for shipment to Africa. They are doing this in association with the Rotary-supported charity Jole Rider (http://jolerider.org) and their Bikes4Africa campaign to make the journey to education possible for thousands of children. Therefore, if you have an unwanted bike, suitable for children (- aged about 9 years and upwards; bikes with 20 or 24 wheels are best, though 20 BMX-type bikes can be suitable) then please let them have it. They can arrange for the bikes to be collected from you. However, if you take advantage of this service, a small donation (e.g. 5) towards the charitys transportation costs to Africa would be very much appreciated. For more information email: international@tarporleyrotary.org.uk or call 730079. Councillor Jones continued: Having refused the same application before it would be irrational to support the application, especially as they are going to be heard at a joint appeal. It would be unfair to the other applications. However Councillor Angela Claydon: I voted in favour of it last time because I know we are looking at them all individually but of all the plans that we have seen, this is the one which is most contained in the village. And to my mind if you were going to have one of them then this would be the most acceptable to me. And what I couldnt find last time and I continue to not to be able to find are any good reasons on planning grounds to refuse it. Whatever we do today it will win on appeal. A motion to refuse the planning application on the same grounds as last time was defeated. Councillor Jill Houbrook said she put forward a motion to grant outline permission with a heavy heart. Voting was five for granting outline planning permission and four against. The resolution to approve will now be referred to the National Planning Casework Unit.

Where theres a will theres a way (a


It seems like a long time since the Conservative Party said it would raise the Inheritance tax (IHt) threshold, above which deceased estates are taxed at 40%. Since forming the coalition government they have yet to turn those words into action and have confirmed the threshold will remain unchanged until at least 2015. Indeed, in their first year of office IHt receipts rose by 14%
The days are long gone when IHT could reasonably be regarded as a tax only for the very wealthy. Many of us still think that we are unlikely to be affected by it, but many of us would be wrong. The IHT threshold officially known as the nil rate band currently stands at 325,000. Consider what your house is worth today. For many people, this alone is enough to exceed the threshold. Married couples and civil partners can pass assets to each other without paying IHT, while they are alive or on their death. A fairly recent change of rules also allows them to transfer any unused portion of their nil rate band when they die. So its now possible for the surviving spouse or partner to leave assets of up to 650,000 before IHT becomes payable. (Its important to remember that the full nil rate band of 650,000 is not available to unmarried couples.) Thankfully, there are a number of things you can do to reduce any liability. A good place to start is with your Will. Everyone should consider having a Will and, just as important, one that is IHT-efficient. If you dont, or if there are mistakes in the drafting, the laws of intestacy may distribute your assets in ways that you never intended, or your estate may be taxed in ways that could otherwise have been avoided. Its estimated that UK taxpayers waste 448m a year in IHT payments which could have legally been avoided by simple tax-planning measures when drawing up a Will. If you own a business, your Will should cover your business assets unless you have made appropriate succession plans with your partners. And you should review it whenever your circumstances change a subsequent marriage, for example, automatically invalidates a Will.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

(and usually a relative)


There are some well-proven methods to reduce IHT, and one is making gifts during your lifetime. These reduce the size of your estate and therefore the size of any IHT bill. Some gifts depend on you surviving at least another seven years before they officially move outside your estate. There are, however, some very useful exceptions to this rule which mean that the assets move outside your estate, and beyond the reach of IHT, immediately. Every tax year, for example, you can make gifts totalling 3,000. On top of that, each year you can make small gifts of Based up to 250 to any person and to as many people as you like. unable to make gifts out of your salary or pension if you then have to raid your capital to pay the bills.

Tarvin tennis tournament survives the elements


SIxTEEn hardy members of Tarvin Tennis Club defied the gloomy weather forecasts and signed up for a post-Christmas American Tournament. They were rewarded with just about the first dry morning for ages and enjoyed three hours of competitive but friendly tennis play. Jane Leyland, first, and Jane Mitchell were the two top-scoring lady players while Chris Edwards was the top man followed closely by John Perry. All, however, were able to enjoy the mulled wine, tea, coffee, sausage rolls, mince pies and other nibbles which accompanied the more strenuous efforts of the morning. This looks like becoming a regular and popular feature on the clubs programme of events.

with Angela Bartlett

Q. Do I need to use a separate neck cream in my beauty regime? A. There is no need to use a separate cream for your neck and your face. It is absolutely fine to use the same product on both areas unless you feel that the skin on your neck is particularly dry. Whilst there is no need to use a separate neck cream, always ensure that what you do for your face, you also do for your neck and your upper chest area. This is particularly true for the application of sunscreen during the day to prevent premature ageing of the skin. During facial treatments our therapists often see a marked difference between the quality of skin on the face and neck & chest if clients havent used skincare products on this area. So take your skin care products right down over your neck and upper chest area. And dont forget the back of your neck and your ears too! Q. What is a Primer and do I need to use one? A. Lots of DIy enthusiasts out there will be saying, yes of course you need to use a primer on a wall or woodwork before you paint it! Well, just like priming a wall or woodwork you can use a specialised product to prime your skin before you apply foundation. There have been recent and exciting advances in the ingredient formulations of primers, with new and sophisticated ingredients to deliver even better results than older formulations. Primers have a wide range of functions and to find out more about our top tips for their use and benefits visit the February newsletter page of our website at www.angelabartlett.co.uk

Look up....
We would all like more space in our homes and with houses in the UK getting smaller, space is at a premium. But what if there was an affordable way to create more space in our homes? A simple solution for all those people fed up of living among clutter and one that doesnt require planning permission or any major structural building work. For most, the loft is a dark and dingy place visited seasonally; once to dig out the Christmas decorations and then again to bring down the holiday suitcases. A precarious scramble across dusty beams, torch in hand; grabbing whats needed then clambering back past boxes filled with long-forgotten belongings. But that dark and dingy place is worth thousands. In fact, it takes up a third of the floor space in an average home. So shouldnt you be making the most of it? And thats where More Than Loft Ladders (MTLL) comes in. Founded in Bolton over five years ago, MTLL specialises in generating space by making the loft easily accessible. And thats all it does. Its not a generic building company, and its not jack-of-all-trades. MTLL only installs loft hatches, ladders, boarding, lighting and insulation. Its what the company does all day, every day, using qualified local installers who are reliable, tidy and efficient. The latest MTLL franchisee to open covers Crewe and Chester and is run by skilled tradesman, Adam Shepherd...Our average job is about

TARPORLEY HIGH SCHOOL & SIxTH FORM COLLEGE


Appeal for defibrillator
THE School Council is currently being relaunched under the name Inspire. Last month the students launched their campaign to raise money for a defibrillator to be kept at Tarporley High School. Events will be taking place in school to help raise money for this worthy cause. A defibrillator is a life-saving machine that gives the heart an electric shock in some cases of cardiac arrest. This is called defibrillation and can save lives. Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body. When someone has a cardiac arrest, defibrillation needs to be prompt. For every minute that passes without defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by 14 per cent. Research shows that applying a controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides the best possible chances of survival. Enterprising students THREE year 9 students are currently working hard on developing a business plan for a project which they will be entering in to an Enterprise competition being led by Weaver Vale Housing Trust. Ewan Price, Alex Palmer and Jake Griffiths are all working hard to ensure they beat any competition. They have to present their idea to a panel of dragons in February and have also been working with local business people to perfect their pitch.

Thank you to all who attended or took part in the Carol Service in Tarvin and made a donation as they left the church. Nearly 200 was raised and presented by Sarah Smith (y11) to Julie Bardell from The Alzheimers Society. Julie spent some time with interested students to inform them of the work of the charity and how they could get involved by becoming a Dementia Friend.

Help at hand if youve got ringing in your ears


tinnitus awareness Week 2013 is to take place from 4-10 February. Organised by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA), the week aims to raise awareness of tinnitus, a condition that affects 10% of the UK population. Tinnitus is typically described as a ringing or buzzing in the ears with no external source. The focus for Tinnitus Awareness Week 2013 is the role that tinnitus support groups can play. Tinnitus support groups offer a vital lifeline for people around the country, offering a chance to share experiences, find out how others cope and discuss the latest information on treatments. The BTA hope to enable hundreds more people to access peer-to-peer support through groups across the UK. Hundreds of people are already benefiting from belonging to a tinnitus support group, but with an estimated six million people affected by the condition, the BTA hope that Tinnitus Awareness Week 2013 will bolster the number of people actively seeking support. Groups around the country will be holding meetings and events during Tinnitus Awareness Week 2013. To find out about events or groups in your area, visit the BTAs website at www.tinnitus.org.uk or call the BTA on 0114 250 9933.
l The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) runs a confidential tinnitus helpline Mon-Fri 9.15am-4.45pm, staffed by trained tinnitus advisers and will be taking calls throughout tinnitus awareness week 0800 018 0527.

Mo bros and sistas raise over 5,500


THE partners and team at Afford Bond LLP Chartered Accountants became Mo Bros and Sistas for the month of Movember and raised in excess of 5,500 for local and national charities. Following the sad loss of a long serving and valued colleague earlier in 2012 and also through supporting staff and clients with similar conditions, Afford Bond saw this as a very appropriate cause. This has really brought the team together and the support received from valued clients and contacts in the business community has been exceptional. Afford Bond would like to thank everyone who has donated and shown extreme generosity in making this such a successful campaign. Tarporley resident Jonathan Curwen, partner at Afford Bond, said: we have been overwhelmed with the support we have received which is an indication of the importance of the campaign and the exceptional relationship we have with our clients. Its been great fun too with the biggest challenge being keeping a straight face during the November partners meeting. Afford Bonds campaign has been focused around a matched donation to St Lukes Hospice. St Lukes provide such an important and valued service to our local community and we are delighted to be able to support such a fantastic organisation. We hope to be able to continue our support in the future. The partners and team at Afford Bond with Diane Eeley (front centre) of St Lukes Hospice 66 To advertise call 01244 350398
