The Unicorn
Service
2014 SEES THE
ST DAVIDS
HOSPICE CARE
CELEBRATE
THIRTY-FIVE
YEARS OF
PROVIDING
CARE A
PHENOMENAL
MILESTONE.
O
ver the past
three and a half
decades, the
service has continued
to grow and provides
more and more care
for people every year,
with more than 3300
patients receiving
support for the year
2013 to 2014. Not bad
considering during the
rst year of the service
the facilities were such
that just six people
received support.
Of course, to keep
up all of this work the
Hospice relies on the
support of charity-
fundraisers to bring
in funds and this is
where you can get
involved.
On this very special
anniversary year, St
Davids Hospice Care is
asking everyone to get
involved and help raise
much-needed funds.
There are lots
of ways you can
celebrate, including
#care4cake events,
abseils, the Admiral City
Txt the words Nurs023.50 to 70070 to donate
to St Davids Hospice Care. #care4cake
of Newport Half and the
upcoming Twilight Memories
walk.
One fundraiser taking part
in the walk is Jackie Lewis,
whose son (pictured) was
cared for by St Davids.
Here she tells us why shes
getting involved.
On Saturday, October
11th, an evening when
my rst thought in years
gone by would have been
where are we going for our
family meal?, this milestone
birthday will be different
and, once again, St Davids
are there to help because
they will be holding their
Twilight Memories Walk on
that very evening.
As an individual, or with
family and friends, you can

ho
doesnt
love a
bit of cake and a
cup of tea? And
what better reason
to scoff a load
of cupcakes and
have a coffee than
by raising money
for a super-worthy
cause.
St Davids
Hospice Care
is encouraging
everyone to take
some time out and
enjoy some cake
to raise money for
care, to help them
to carry on the
rst-class hospice
service they carry
out.
Perhaps you
can organise a
full-on tea party for
hundreds of guests,
or an intimate
gathering with a
massive sponge-
cake to enjoy with
family or friends in
memory of a loved
one it doesnt
matter if you raise
500 or 5, as
every penny really
does help.

information? Of course
you do! Call 01633
851051 for a fundraising
pack and for more
information.
U
nderstanding death
and bereavement
is incredibly difcult
for people of all ages, but is
often particularly difcult for
children and young people.
The St Davids Hospice
offers a specialist service
to help children and
young people cope with
bereavement and the loss of
the loved one.
Helping children to
manage the impact of a
losing a loved-one, The
Unicorn Service works by
being open and honest
with children in a way that
they understand and can
comprehend.
The Unicorn Service works
in many ways, including
through schools links, family
projects, discussion and
activities as well as individual
work. Taking into account
age, cultural inuences and
the circumstances of the
bereavement, the dedicated
Unicorn Service team help
the child or young person
through their grief and
loss and help them to look
forward to the future and
create memories.
Any young person can
receive help from the Unicorn
Service they dont have to
have been related to a St.
Davids patient. Referrals can
be made from one of the St
Davids Nurse Specialists,
a family member, the GP,
school, social and well
being services, or even from
the child or young person
themselves.
St Davids needs to raise
money to keep this scheme
going in the future - its
undoubtedly one of their most
vital services and is run by a
small team.
Can you help? Maybe you
can hold an event or perhaps
join the monthly lottery. Why
not get in touch to nd out
how you can get involved.

WHILE BEING AN INSTANTLY RECOGNISABLE NATIONAL BRAND, MANY PEOPLE
ARE NOT AWARE THAT EACH SPECSAVERS STORE IS OWNED AND RUN BY LOCAL
OPTICIANS UNDER THE SPECSAVERS UMBRELLA.
NEWPORTS LOCAL OPTICIANS
SPECSAVERS
N
ewports High Street and Spytty
Road stores are run by the same
three opticians, Jason Williams, who
has been with Specsavers in Newport since
1991, Craig MacKenzie and Andrew Bowers,
both of whom came on board when the new
Spytty Road store opened in 2012.
The advantage of each Specsavers store
being locally owned is that you have the
optician proprietors working within each
store week in week out, leading their teams
to provide the high levels of customer service
Specsavers has become known for, which in
turn has led them to win many V Awards over
the years.
We have two fantastic teams of staff in
each store who all strive to provide the highest
levels of customer care. said co-owner and
optician Jason Williams.
Many of the staff members have been
working for Specsavers in Newport for more
than ten years, some are still at the High Street
store in the city centre, and some transferred
over to the new Spytty Road store when that
opened two years ago.
We have a long tradition of training and
supporting our staff to achieve the highest
ambitions they aim for.
We currently participate in the
apprenticeship programme, and we have
seen employees who have started out as
a Saturday only staff members, while still
in education, that go on to become fully
qualied opticians and store managers.
As well as being known for excellent
customer service, both of the Newport
Specsavers also have great offers too.
We have a variety of offers designed
to appeal to all kinds of people, each with
different needs and specications. added
Jason.
Our most popular offer is the Two for One
offer, where customers get a second pair
absolutely free when purchasing any pair of
frames costing 69 or above.
This offer cant be used in conjunction with
our other great offers, but customers who opt
for the Two for One offer, can choose from
any style in the store up to the same price as
their rst pair.
Customers do not have to choose from a
selected limited range of frames, and the offer
covers designer brands and rimless glasses
too. All our frame prices include the cost of
standard single vision lenses.
Recent additions to the extremely popular
designer collections are Karl Lagerfeld and
Jeff Banks. These new brands add to the
growing collection of designer brands offered
at Specsavers, which include, Boss Orange,
Tommy Hilger, John Rocha, Karen Millen,
and Replay, plus many, many more.
As well as selling highly fashionable
glasses and offering great value for money,
at Specsavers you can also choose to
wear contact lenses instead of glasses, with
dedicated contact lens opticians in both stores.
New wearers can take advantage of their
free trial of contact lenses, great for those who
have never tried them before.
Free hearing checks with an audiologist
are also available, as well as selling the latest
digital hearing aids.
Both Sstores are open for sight testing
seven days a week, with the Spytty Road
store staying open until 8pm during weekday
evenings. Pop into your nearest store today for
great deals on eye wear and award winning
customer service.

Words By Emma Stowell-Corten

#care4cake
This months Big Picture is dedicated to our Rhys
Giles South Wales Next Top Model and V Awards
charity of the year, St Davids Hospice Care.
We are big fans of the guys at St Davids and we
hold great admiration for the work they do, which is
why we are asking you to scoff loads of cake
and tea.
St Davids is asking people across south east
Wales to hold a #care4cake coffee morning to help
raise funds for the charity. It doesnt have to be
anything grand or lavish, it can be a coffee morning
between friends, a shared break in work or perhaps
a little mothers and toddlers get together.
Well be holding one here at Voice Towers in the
run up to Christmas, and we hope you will too.
For more information on #care4cake, visit
www.stdavidshospicecare.org or look for #care4cake

There are two sure signs that
Christmas is coming. The first is X
Factor. The second is The V Awards.
This year, as we have for the last
few years, were asking everyone
who comes along to The V Awards
to bring with them a gift for a child
in care. Working with Action For
Children, we ensure that these gifts
are distributed to these very special
cared-for children at a festive bash
each year.
The gift doesnt have to
be anything fancy or
expensive, all we
ask is that it is
wrapped and
labelled with
the age its for
any child or
young person
aged form birth to 18.
So, if youre coming along to
The V Awards be sure to bring a
gift with you and pop it under our
Christmas tree.
For more information on
Action For Children, visit www.

Hi Im Daniel Mead and I am one of the Asset Management and
Leasing team members at Queensberry Real Estate. I am a chartered
surveyor with in excess of 10 years experience of working on the day
to day commercial elements of shopping centres and retail property
across the UK.
A large amount of my current time is spent working on the
Friars Walk development in Newport, presenting the development to
retailers and property agents and working up the commercial terms of
new lettings ahead of the opening of the centre in autumn 2015. Im
frequently down on site, encouraging perspective tenants to take a look
at construction and our marketing suite has magnificent views of the
site and the revitalised riverfront area. All our visitors comment about
the great views we have of the city and are really impressed with the
progress.
QRE has recently announced the deal with New Look and is in
the process of negotiating and finalising new lettings to further exciting
operators ahead of announcing them to the public soon.
I work with national leasing agents Strutt and Parker and Lunson
Mitchenall to assist me in this role. This month, however, we are
proud to announce that a third joint agent has joined the Friars Walk
team, Cooke & Arkwright. Cooke & Arkwright is based in Cardiff and
partner, Huw Thomas, will be leading the instruction.
QRE recognises the heightened contribution that local partners
can make to the development and regeneration of a city centre such as
Newport. It is incredibly important that we win the hearts and minds
of Newports catchment shopping population ahead of our opening
date in autumn 2015 and engagement on this level can be helped by
working side by side with the local community where we can.
Elsewhere on the project for example we work with Icon Creative
Designs in Newport on all of our marketing and design production
work Gemellis and Bar Piazza both Newport-based restaurants
have provided the catering at some our marketing events and we
have even used local Newport band, Nothing North of Alaska on
our development fly-through that can be viewed on the Friars Walk
website.
I hope that similar efforts at local engagement, alongside
construction progress on site and the previous and future retailer
announcements will ensure that shoppers from Newport and the wider
customer catchment return to the city centre in droves when we open
next year.
For more information including exciting quad copter footage and
our fly through visit our website www.friarswalknewport.co.uk and
follow us on twitter QberryRE.

As if our prize of two passes to
Comedy Port wasnt enough, weve
also been given three pairs of tickets
for Shappi Korshandis show on
Thursday 9th October to give away!
Lucky us and lucky old you!
Shappis show will hit The
Riverfront on Thursday 9th
October. After being knocked up like
a 1950s teenager Shappi missed 2013,
but now she is back and its forward
march. Reflecting on the good things,
she celebrates her haphazard, zigzag
towards her dreams. Shes feisty,
flirty and effortlessly funny, handling
every subject with a razor sharp wit,
softened only by her deliciously dizzy
delivery and endless charm.
To be in with a chance of winning
a pair of tickets for this show at The
Riverfront, simply email us telling us
why you deserve to win the tickets.
It can be as many or as few words as
youd like, and well pick our faves.

hat is this Crazy Wrap Thing people are
talking about? Its our It Works body
contouring wrap with a catchy name.
They call it crazy because people think were crazy
when we say it works, until they try it!
The Ultimate Body Applicator (That Crazy
Wrap Thing) is a non-woven cloth wrap that is
infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula
to deliver maximum tightening, toning and rming
results in as little as 45 minutes. It continuously
hydrates for rmer, smoother, more youthful-looking
skin, and reduces the appearance of cellulite and
skin slackening.
Each Ultimate Body Applicator is approximately
13 x 21 and comes in a versatile shape that can
be applied wherever you choose to see results, such
as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or
lower legs. It yightens, tones and rms, minimizes
cellulite appearance, improves skin texture and
tightness, is mess-free and simple to use, is made
with antural ingredients and offers progressive results
over 72 hours.
The Crazy Wrap Things is NOT meant to be a
substitute for healthy eating habits or exercise... that
would just be silly. It is meant to tighten, tone, and
rm those annoying, fat-prone areas that just wont
go away on their own.
If you want to try that Crazy Wrap thing and
check out some of the other amazing products
then please check out www.lucyintheskywraps.

hen I rst heard of the Face Mapping
skin analysis facial it really caught my
interest! My skin is all over the shop;
dry in some places, oily in others, so I thought
this is worth investigating and booked myself an
appointment at Taje, Temple of Beauty in Malpas.
When I arrived I was greeted by the lovely
Melissa who explained to me the process of Face
Mapping. Its a Dermalogica treatment to reveal
your skin condition, as well as the products most
effective at delivering all-over skin health. Well, that
sounded good to me!
So, she got to work by gently examining
each part of my face. The results were that my
cheeks, forehead and chin were dehydrated.
With this in mind Melissa chose the appropriate
products and started pre-cleansing my face. She
then cleansed my face again with UltraCalming
cleanser to make sure my face was completely
clean of makeup. After that Melissa exfoliated
my face with Daily Microfoliant to unclog my
pores. An oatmeal masque was applied to my
face once the exfoliator was removed. This was
left on for 10 minutes. This smelt so yummy. I must
add that the brushes Melissa used to apply the
products were ever so soft and added to the whole
relaxing experience. I was then treated to a deep,
soothing face massage which really ironed out the
stresses of the day. After almost falling asleep due
to Melissas magic ngers it was time for my face to
be moisturised, using Dermalogicas Barrier Repair,
to shield against moisture loss. Finishing up, my
face received more moisturising with Super Sensitive
Shield, this one acts as a primer and protects your
skin from the UV rays.
When I looked in the mirror my face was
looked so smooth and felt so fresh. A worthwhile
experience indeed! The Face Mapping skin
analysis facial takes an hour and costs 40.
Taje Temple of Beauty uses all Dermalogica
products which you can buy in salon. Taje is situated

I
f youre still looking for ideas for your 2015 wedding,
whether its the overall theme or perhaps a nishing
touch or two, then let us help. Over the next few pages
weve pulled together the top ve 2015 wedding trends,
covering everything from colour schemes to photography.
1. THE RETURN OF ROMANCE
Inspired by the UKs unending love of vintage, the roaring
twenties is without doubt a strong theme for weddings
this year thanks to the air of romance the fashions of the
decade evoke.
Think long, elegant gloves, bone china, pretty patterns
and lace, if you fancy, to add a touch of classic romance
to your big day.
2. PEONIES
Said to embody romance, honour and prosperity, the
peony is the perfect ower for a wedding.
In Victorian times, the slow and almost bashful process of
the peony owers opening, seemingly impossible without
the intimate and loving attentions of the ants, came to
symbolise female purity and chastity. Indeed, it was in
Victorian England where the peony became associated
with white weddings as the delicately-veiled, virginal bride
slowly and coyly revealed her noble beauty to her new
husband.
The beautiful blooms are at their best during late
spring and summer, making them ideal for wedding
arrangements and bouquets.
3. GARLANDS
Flowers, owers everywhere! If your wedding is to take
on just one trend this year, then this is probably the
easiest. Beautiful garlands are considered the height
of matrimonial fashion this year. Incorporate them
anywhere over the back of chairs, in your hair, as table
centrepieces, over doorframes be imaginative!
4. HASHTAG YOUR DAY
Ok, so lots of your guests will be snapping away
throughout the day, posting pics on Instagram, Facebook
and Twitter, so why not take advantage and ask them to
use a specic hashtag so that you can share your day
with friends and family who might not have been able to
make it?
Simply buy a few small chalkboards and place then
strategically around your venue with your hashtag, or
even, if youre that well organised, add it to your wedding
invite. #easy
5. FORMAL PORTRAITS
In recent years the trend for formal wedding portraits
has died off somewhat, with quirky shots and more
casual images taking over, however formal portraits are
en-vogue again this year and the more ostentatious and
breathtaking, the better.
Some brides are even scheduling in dress shoots before
the big day and why not? After all, when are you ever
going to spend so much time considering your dress, hair,
makeup and shoes? Go for it!

use the sports halls, swimming
pools, performing arts centres,
art and recording studios,
science labs and ICT suites.
Virtually all pupils gain
their frst or second choice
at university, with around
60% attending Russell Group
universities to read subjects
as diverse as medicine,
law, languages, maths and
business.
Frequently in the top 10
boarding schools for boys
based on A level results,
Monmouth School gained an
excellent in every category in
its recent ESTYN inspection.
At A level this year, 16.3%
achieved A* grades and 73.5%
were awarded A* - B grades.
Five students won Oxbridge

scholarship.
At HMSG this year, 52.6%
of girls achieved A*/A grades
more than double the
national average. Five students
won places at Oxford and
Cambridge, including one to
study medicine.

the umbrella project
O
ffering a range of individual handmade
items, retro furniture and home acces-
sories, Jan also converts old furniture into
unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, which are on sale at
the store and is available to offer advice on your
own upcycling projects.
I started upcycling furniture completely
by accident, Jan told us. I coloured
the chairs surrounding our
display table to brighten the
place up and the very next
day people went mad for
them, asking if they were
for sale!
After the success of
the chairs, I guess you
could say I caught the crea-
tive bug. I especially love the
feeling of bringing something
old and disused back to life.
Im lucky to come from a creative
family. My partner is a joiner, my daughters an
interior designer and my son is excellent with
computers.
Jan visits many auction houses to find classic
and interesting pieces of furniture that could do
with a bit of love, regularly taking trips with her
daughter to select key items.
Last May we introduced Annie Sloan
CHALKPAINTSTM to the store. The great thing
about these wonderful paints is that you dont need
to prep the furniture you intend to paint, plus you
can use it directly on almost any surface, including
wood, metal, plastic and even concrete theyre so
versatile!
Moving forward, Jan will be holding various
workshops at the store on selected Sundays,
where she will teach groups of up to
seven people how to use Annie
Sloan paint, starting with a basic
techniques workshop and interior
design classes.
Furniture is priced from 20
upwards and includes many,
many items for every room
in the home such as mirrors,
sewing boxes, dressers, chairs
and tables. Annie Sloan paints are
available in a wide range of colours,
priced at 18.95 for a 1 litre tin.
Jan also rents space out to local crafters
and artisans and already has a variety of conces-
sions showcasing a wide range of handmade gifts,
needlecraft, jewellery, foodstuffs and preserves.
Local artist Sonja Beer also has a few select
pieces for sale at The Umbrella Project. The shop
is constantly being updated.
Why not visit Voices Shop of the Month this
October? Youre guaranteed to find something
unique when you browse this wonderful store.
The Umbrella Project is located at 30 Church
Road, Newport NP19 7EL. For more information
you can visit the website at www.theumbrel-
laproject.info, or alternatively give Jan a call on
07793 082182. the umbrella project is also on
Facebook, and new items are posted frequently.
First set up as a market-style collaboration between
crafters, the store has evolved into a Mecca for the
craft centric and eco conscious consumer

A
nnita is constantly snapping
away with her trusty camera,
capturing natural and spontane-
ous life moments and, after a recent trip
to Corfu (one of her favourite holiday
destinations), she decided to start up her
own business doing something that she
loves.
I have always enjoyed being crea-
tive. Annita told Voice. Im quite fond
of embroidery, knitting and crochet, and
I love to sketch. But, of course photog-
raphy is my passion.
With travelling, a love of animals,
gardening and wildlife, there has never
been a shortage of inspiration in my
life.
Like everyone else, I have favour-
ite places and memories, and to catch
those split-second moments in a picture,
which is frozen in time forever, is an
exciting achievement.
Brohma provides customers through-
out the UK, Europe and beyond, with a
range of beautiful photographic images
on canvas that can be delivered directly
to your door.
Annitas products are not only very
affordable; they are vibrant and con-
temporary wall art that easily brighten
up any room. Each canvas is produced
using highest quality materials and de-
livered securely and safely via UPS.
Brohma currently provides custom-
ers throughout the UK, Europe and
beyond with a range of beautiful pho-
tographic images that can be viewed on
the website at www.brohma.com
Its a tremendous opportunity and
such a great experience for me to com-
bine my love of art with my passion for
photography, and its a wonderful feel-
ing knowing that my captured moments
of magic will be hung up on peoples
walls and inside office buildings to be
admired, added Annita.
I hope you will find the time to
have a look at www.brohma.com, or
visit the Facebook page look for Bro-
hma Photo Art.
For more information about Brohma
products and services, you can give An-
nita a call on 07976 891852 or email her
direct on annita@brohma.com
(The name Brohma is a play on
words, using the first letters of Annitas
beloved pet dogs Bruno, Homer, Harvey
and Marley.)
Brohma is a brand new photographic art business based in
Newport, which has been set up by artist Annita Ashurst.

brand names such as Harris Tweed, St Michael and
Gannex.
Prices for these one-of-kind pieces of classic

in ready for winter, plus
shes also taking on a new
menswear brand too - Love

Lindy Bop range, with tartan skater
dresses being a must-have item for your winter
wardrobe. This lovely dress can be yours to own for
only 38 and is available in sizes 8-22.

high up in the Welsh valleys this winter, is the uber-
chic and super-sexy classic faux fur coat. Emily
Rose Vintage has a great choice of fur coats avail-
able in a wide variety of colours and sizes.
Another popular brand name at Lizs store in
Griffithstown is Voodoo Vixen. For those of you
who are not in the know, Voodoo Vixen is a vin-
tage-inspired label, which infuses retro, pin-up and
rockabilly styles with classic silhouettes to flatter the
modern woman.
Each and every dress is designed to compli-
ment your curves and make you stand out from the
crowd. New Voodoo Vixen party dresses, which
will definitely turn a few heads at the Christmas of-
fice party, include halter-neck floral wiggle dresses
from 38, 50s inspired swing dresses from
35, and floral Ophelia dresses from
40.

a little different to match your per-
sonality, or looking to definitely
stand out and turn heads when
you walk down the street, then

Vintage and see what great items
are on offer.

Getting The Very Best
Out Of Your Child
T
o heck with health and safety madness this
autumn its time to get outside and play
conkers.
Of course, like all good games there are a few
tricks that you can pull from up your sleeve to ensure
your place as the conker champion of all the world!
Here are some:
The best conkers are hard, symmetrical and not
cracked. To test for the hardest conkers, plop them in
a bucket of water damaged ones will float but the
healthiest, hardest will sink to bottom so pick these!
To make your conker even harder, bake it in the
oven for a short while (but dont let it go wrinkly).
Soaking in vinegar also hardens it up the same
happens if you soak it in salt water.
It could be seen as cheating, but you could paint
your conker with clear nail varnish or roll it in hand
cream. You could also freeze it, or plan ahead and
keep your conkers in a dark place until next year,
giving it a whole year to harden!
SO GO ON! GET OUTSIDE AND GO
BONKERS FOR CONKERS THIS AUTUMN!
...AND PLAY

SOUTH EAST WALES ADOPTION SERVICE
B
laenau Gwent, Torfaen
and Monmouthshire local
authorities as part of a new
Welsh Government initiative to
deliver a regional adoption service
throughout the South East Wales
area.
WHAT IS ADOPTION?
Adoption is a way of giving a child
a forever family in circumstances
where they are not able to remain
with their birth parents. Adoption
is a process in which the legal
parental rights are permanently
transferred to the adoptive parents.
Who are the children waiting for
adoption?
The children who need adoptive
families are on average between
nine months to seven years old.
There are single children as well as
sibling groups that need adoptive
placements where they can grow
up together. Not being able to find
adoptive placements for sibling
groups may mean that brothers and
sisters may be separated.
WHO CAN ADOPT?
Adoption is open to more than
you might think; you dont have
to be married, own your home or
be financially well off. Adoption
is open to single applicants, gay,
lesbian and transgender applicants
and theres no age limit to who can
adopt. The most important attribute
of an adopter is the capability to
provide children with a loving and
stable home for them to grow and
reach their full potential.
WHAT TO DO NEXT?
If you are interested in adoption
you can contact us directly on
01495 355766 to speak to a
member of the team. You can get
more information from our website
www.adoptionsoutheastwales.co.uk
or email adoption@blaenau-gwent.
gov.uk.
We run information sessions
bi-monthly where prospective
adopters can come along, meet
the team and find out more
about adoption in a relaxed and
comfortable environment.
For more information call 01495
355766 or email Adoption@
blaenau-gwent.gov.uk
You can also visit www.
adoptionsoutheastwales.co.uk
(01495) 355766 - adoption@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk - www.adoptionsoutheastwales.co.uk

The South East Wales
Adoption Service is an
adoption agency covering
Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly,
Newport Torfaen and
Monmouthshire areas.
We encourage anyone who
may be interested in
adoption to contact us. There
is no upper age limit and you
dont have to be married or
own your own home.
For more information, an
informal discussion or to
receive an information pack
please contact us and ask to
speak to one of the team.

Its around 4pm on a sunny
Tuesday afternoon and Im sat
at a table in Parc Pantry. The
place is filled with parents with
their children, who have popped
in for a tasty treat on their way
home from school.
As I wait for my order, of
co-owner Antonys speciality
crme brle coffee and also a
steak and red wine pie-in-a-box,
I glance around this lovely deli
style shop and notice lots of
quirky and stylish items to buy.
Hanging from exposed
wooden beams in the ceiling are
wonderful illustrated lamp-
shades, shelves on the walls are
full of cable and cotton lighting,
as well as cushions and stylised
mugs, theres a pot by the door
packed with patterned umbrel-
las, and the main table is full of
delicious cakes and savouries,
and plenty of fresh bread.
After a few minutes of look-
ing at all the cool things that are
placed all over the store, my pie
and coffee arrives, and my god,
the pie smells AMAZING!
I quickly peel the sticker
with a smiley face off the box
to reveal a glorious, piping-hot
pie, covered in rich onion gravy,
crispy onions and mature ched-
dar cheese.
Im a massive pie and pasty
lover, and this steak and red
wine piece of heaven, has
to be one of the best Ive ever
tried! Lovely pastry and full to
the brim with thick juicy pieces
of steak!
Now, Im not really a fan of
coffee, Id much prefer a lovely
cup of sweet milky tea, and once
I told co-owner Matt this he rec-
ommended that I try Anthonys
crme brle coffee.
Matt was completely right, I
simply had to try this amazing
coffee and I recommend it to
anyone who visits Parc Pantry,
phenomenal coffee. Anthony
also makes a mint mocha, which
I will definitely try the next time
I visit, maybe with a differ-
ent flavour pie or one of their
Belgian waffles.
Make sure you pop in and try
some of their amazing foods and
drinks, and also why not browse
their fabulous gift and home-
ware selection.

than a mighty burger or a hot hot dog.
The stylish canteen-styling of the
Sawyers offers a relaxing atmosphere to
enjoy a great bite to eat and, if you fancy it,
a cocktail or two.
Why not pop in and enjoy a real
American breakfast this weekend, or
at any time of the week? The breakfast

meals straight from the good old U.S of A.
Pancakes, waffles and great fresh coffee are

on both the dine in and take-out menus.
Steaks, pastas, pizzas, burgers and the most
delicious hotdogs all feature on the menu.
Why not order the insanely wonderful
Pulled Pork Burger or the Sloppy Joe
Burger? Made from brisket and chuck beef
mince, each burger is sat in a lightly toasted
brioche bun, accompanied with fries, corn
on the cob and fresh slaw. The Sloppy Joe
burger is served with a generous helping
of chilli, coated in melted cheese and sour
cream, while the Pulled Pork Burger is
topped with Sawyers own-recipe pulled
pork.
What about a Sawyers dawg? Thats
right these hot dogs are so good they
deserve only to be called dawgs. Made to
a Sawyers-exclusive sausage recipe, the
Chilli Dawg is an awesome treat, while
the Vegi Dawg is a vegetarians delight a
Glamorgan sausage served with red onion
relish hugged in a brioche bun.

DOLMAN THEATRE
Dead Funny
October 15 - 18
Newport Playgoers present a
play that asks: what is funny?
Eleanor is out of step with her
husbands Dead Funny Society
and its small membership.
Unlike them, she fails to see the
funny side of their great heroes
such as Benny Hill. One thing
is clear, just as comedy and
tragedy are closely intertwined,
so comedy and sex are also
regular bedfellows.
Dead Funny is at the Dolman
Theatre from Wednesday 15th
Saturday 18th October at
7.15 pm, with an extra matinee
performance on the Saturday at
2.30 pm. To book tickets call
01633 263670 or visit
www.dolmantheatre.co.uk.
Last October Tin Shed Theatre Co.
brought Newport The Ritual. People
who went to it took to Twitter and
claimed it to be the most horrifying
thing theyd ever seen, one reviewer
called it utterly terrifying.
This October theyre back with
Leviticus and promise it will be
even more unsettling; Tin Shed are
pushing the boundaries of immersive
performance and horror theatre even
further than before.
Leviticus, which is being directed
by Tin Sheds Antonio Rimola, invites
only four audience members at a time
into an as-of-yet undisclosed location.
This lucky (or unlucky) four will then
be asked to take part in an act of
purity and evil.
Theyre not giving a lot away
right now, but judging by last years
Halloween performance its sure to be
an experience youll never forget.
Leviticus will run from October
28th to November 2nd at times from
6.30pm to 11pm. Each performance
lasts around 35 minutes and booking
in advance is essential as tickets
are limited. Tickets are 10, 9 for
concessions and 8 for bulk bookings
of four. Call 01633 656757 for yours.

Dead Funny is a tragic-comedy
about impotence, sex therapy
and the English sense of humour.
Set in the early 90s, the play
centres on a group of hero-
worshipping neighbours, fixated
on British comedians of the variety
theatre. The dwindling members of
the Dead Funny Society prepare a
wake for Benny Hill. From this unlikely
premise springs a play written
unashamedly for adults and asking the
age-old question: what is funny?
Eleanor, the frustrated wife, is out
of step with her husbands Dead Funny
Society and its small membership.
Unlike them, she fails to see the funny
side of their great heroes. She finds
Benny Hill tasteless, sexist and not in
the least humorous. It is impossible to
agree on what is funny, but one thing is
clear just as comedy and tragedy are
closely intertwined, so comedy and
sex are also regular bedfellows.
1 Eleanor (Nicky Davies) and Richard
(Simon Hurley) are shocked when they
watch a video about how to improve
their sex life
2 Lisa (Ros Jones-Griffiths) is
unimpressed with Richards (Simon
Hurley) love-making
3 Brian (Chris Edmunds) is enthralled
by Lisas (Ros Jones-Griffiths) tales of
her supernatural experiences
4 Lisa (Ros Jones-Griffiths) tries to get
the attention of husband Nick (Luke
Bowkett)
5 The Dead Funny Society do a
