Thornton Manor, near Heswall, was in the news in October when Boris Johnson and Leo Varadkar met to try and thrash out a Brexit deal. What was confusing is that the national news said it was in Cheshire, there was no mention of Heswall or the Wirral. If there is a Brexit deal by 31st October then maybe the Wirral will go down in history as the start of a good Brexit deal?

Elsewhere in this month’s magazine we have news of crisp packet recycling at Tesco, pictures from a cycling event, authors visiting Heswall, Birkenhead School, the Big Room at Heswall Hall, sporting success at Heswall Primary and the usual features, such as gardening, a legal column and what’s on guide.

We hope you enjoy this edition and please support your local traders who are advertising in the magazine.

Without mentioning the “B” word it is fair to say that there is a lot of uncertainty today. Uncertainty leads to feelings of not being in control and can lead to anxiety. There are steps that individuals can take and we can help with to give you control of your own affairs.

Housing The current property market can be confusing with a variety of legal obstacles. If you are looking at purchasing or selling a property at this time but feel unsure as to how to proceed, feel free to drop in to our offices for a no obligation appointment and we’ll guide you through this legal process professionally and efficiently while also offering a friendly service.

Power of Attorney During this period of economic uncertainty, it also makes sense to try and establish some form of certainty in your personal affairs. A Lasting Power of Attorney should be considered. This enables you to appoint Attorneys to look after your Financial affairs or Personal Health and Welfare. Through a power of attorney, those closest to you are able to organise your financial and health needs at a time when it can be crucial.

Wills Perhaps it’s time that you take control of your legal affairs in order to decide how you wish your property to be handled in the event of your death. Without a valid will, your property may end up in the hands of those you never intended it to fall to, passing through intestacy and potentially being dealt with contrary to your wishes. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that you execute a valid will that clearly disposes of your assets to those most important to you.

Crisp packets recycled in Heswall

We all do our best to recycle paper and plastics but item that has to go to landfill is crisp packets – until now. Crisp packet recycling bins are springing up across the Wirral. Terracyle partnered with Walkers in 2018 to create a free recycling scheme for crisp packets of all brands and Wirral is home to seven communal collection points. Each of these communal collection points can be used by anyone to recycle their used crisp packets. Once collected, these crisp packets are separated by plastic type, cleaned and shredded to turn them into plastic pellets. These pellets are then used to create park benches, plant pots, watering cans and cool bags – transforming waste into new items. Locally there is a recycling bin at Tesco, in Heswall, and at Calday Grammar School. These sites are run on a voluntary basis, so before each visit, it is recommended that you check that it is open.

Locally owned funeral directors promise fair prices for every family

The Cost of a funeral is regularly at the centre of negative media attention lately. Why? Big groups trying to sell products though fear. A funeral is no small cost but the final invoice is directly dependent on the choices you make to say farewell to your loved one. At Robert Quinn Funeral Directors we are transparent about our pricing, explaining exactly what is included - no hidden extras. We are more than happy to discuss all the differing options and their price implications so you can make an informed decision. We believe in a fair price for every family, all of the time.

Care home residents ‘travel the globe’ with postcards of kindness

Residents at a Wirral care home are travelling the world to destinations near and far without even leaving the building. Staff at The Hazelwell, a residential, nursing, palliative and respite care home in Heswall, have joined a Facebook group called Postcards of Kindness. The project gives people

going on holiday the chance to send postcards to care home residents, leaving them wonderful messages to read from across the globe. Postcards of Kindness was set up in 2018 and has expanded this year to include many care homes. The idea is to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation and help older people to feel that there is always somebody thinking of them by receiving postcards from supporters of

the project. The Hazelwell’s care home manager, Sue Ball said: “Sending postcards when on holiday has become increasingly rare with everyone using their smartphone or social media to stay in touch with friends and family back home. Thus, older people receive less postcards than ever before too. In care settings, there is typically very little personal mail to engage and entertain residents. “Postcards of Kindness hope that anyone on their own travels will think of someone in care and send a card to one of the settings who have signed up. Encouraged by the sentiment that words, anecdotes and the sharing of holiday moments could really brighten someone’s day, so we felt that this would be something our residents would love to be involved in at The Hazelwell.”

The Hazelwell’s care home activities assistant Brenda Newey, an active Facebook user, came across Postcards of Kindness on the social media site and said: “We are always looking at new activities to join in with that will keep life interesting for our residents. “I really hope that we will get lots of cards from far off places to share with everyone at The Hazelwell, enough to plot on a world map and hopefully we can start to cover a wall with different holiday destinations. We’ve already had several cards from around the UK as well as one from New York!”

Pots of cabbage!

l

November can be a bit of a grey, miserable month. My kids would call it ‘meh’. I like to inject some colour with winter bedding plants. A cheerful pot by the front door can make you smile on the gloomiest morning.

Obviously, the choice of plants for winter is not as large as during the summer months but there are enough varieties around to make very attractive combinations for pots. My favourite plant for winter pots has to be the ornamental cabbage. These robust beauties come in wonderful colours including cream, pink and purple – with either attractive frilly or very spiky leaves. They pair beautifully with winter-flowering pansies and hardy cyclamen. Try planting three pots of different sizes using a colour scheme which co-ordinates with the cabbages. Plant a 50cm / 20inch pot with four large ornamental frilly cabbages surrounding a

central spiky one, to give some height to the display. Then choose a smaller pot (38cm / 15inches) and plant one frilly ornamental cabbage surrounded by pink and purple winter-flowering pansies. Finally plant a small pot (25cm / 10inches) with a mixture of hardy cyclamen and white pansies. The resulting display will give you pleasure through November, December and January. TIPS

l Select a frostproof container

because these pots need to withstand wintery conditions. The most dependable pots are made of fibreglass, lead, iron, heavy plastic, or stone. Most terracotta will crack in cold temperatures, but some glazed varieties are frost-proof.

l Use a good general-purpose

compost. There are mixes specifically made for use in containers, which provide the essential drainage that plants living in pots need.

l Make sure you place plenty

of drainage material in the

bottom of the pots.

A good compost will contain

enough slow release fertiliser to maintain the plants for several weeks during autumn and winter. If they still going strong as winter turns to you can give them a bit of a feed, but by February or March you will want to think about replanting your pots with spring bedding.

l Think about gravel – I

like to use a layer of gravel over the soil of my winter pots for several reasons. It

gives the planted pots an attractive finish, keeps rain from splashing back on to the plants, provides some insulation for the soil and reflects light and warmth in any winter sun thus creating a little microclimate in which the plants will be happier.

l Water them! The plants

will need moisture around their roots so water as needed unless the soil in the container is frozen. Do not water frozen pots because the plants are

unable to absorb the water.

Happy gardening

Hundreds explore the hidden tracks of Leverhulme Estate

Cyclists of all ages took the opportunity to explore some of the hidden tracks of Wirral’s Leverhulme Estate. The treelined paths at Brimstage Hall & Courtyard were opened to the public for the first time on Sunday as part of the Leverhulme Summer Cycle. Hundreds of cyclists, ranging from young children to grandparents, got on their bikes to explore the 4 miles of tracks. Others chose to walk the paths which extend from Brimstage to neighbouring Thornton Hough. The event was organised by Pedalare, which promotes cycling, and Rethink Now CIC, which works with communities to help them consider what changes they can make to improve air quality and their quality of life. The event coincided with World Car Free Day and came just a few days after Wirral had successfully hosted a stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain. In addition to the cycling, visitors were able to enjoy a selection of food outlets including the newly opened Brimstage Courtyard Café. Andy Mills, a director of Pedalare, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people of all ages enjoying the hidden tracks of the Leverhulme Estate on their bikes. “The tracks are normally used for farming purposes, so it was great to be able to open them up to the public for the first time.

JoJo Moyes visits Birkenhead School

Birkenhead School and Linghams Booksellers in Heswall, recently welcomed best-selling novelist JoJo Moyes to the Wirral to talk about her latest new book ‘The Giver of Stars’. JoJo is one of the UK’s most accomplished authors and has sold more than 38 million books in 46 languages. She initially started writing historical fiction, but it is her book ‘Me Before You’, published in 2012 and that was later made into a movie, that has made her one of the most successful authors for the past decade. JoJo believes that her latest novel is technically and lyrically her best work to date, and the film rights have already been purchased for the book to be made into a movie. The novel was inspired by an article and images that JoJo saw in Smithsonian magazine about a group of women who delivered reading material on horseback to some of America’s poorest and most isolated illiterate households in Kentucky during the 1930s. In the novel she tells the story of Margery O’Hare whose mission is to spread the wonder of books and reading to the poor and the lost. The book is a feminist adventure and looks to pay tribute to women’s work, endurance and female solidarity. Over 200 guests attended the talk at Bushell Hall during which JoJo answered questions from the audience and spoke with warmth and humour about her career and inspirations for her books. Overall, another great evening with one of the country’s leading authors hosted by Birkenhead School and Linghams Booksellers. JoJo Moyes is the latest in a number of high-profile speakers who have recently visited the School as part of the School’s Inspiring Talks Series. Other guests have included BBC TV presenters and broadcasters, George Alagiah and Kate Humble, health and fitness guru, Joe Wicks, author and former politician, Jeffrey Archer and First Admiral Sea Lord, Sir Philip Jones. On Thursday 31st October, the School is welcoming Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, a former SAS soldier and star of Channel 4’s ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’, in conjunction with Linghams. Tickets are available for the public event through Linghams by calling 0151 342 7290 or online at www.linghams.co.uk.

The Big Room

is recruiting volunteers with big ideas and a great energy for live events

Many readers will have heard of, or even visited, The Big Room at Heswall Hall. The Big Room is a contemporary music and comedy brand. We are a community-based, grassroots venue with an exciting future. In just two years, we’ve turned Heswall Hall into an exciting venue for a great night out. Many of our events sell out and we attract audiences from across Wirral and beyond. We are now looking to add to our small team of volunteers to help build on this exciting and growing brand. In particular, we need some help with event marketing and promotion, including digital and social media, as well as the more traditional posters, flyers and street walking campaigns we use to engage audiences. We are also keen to recruit younger people to the brand, as we are now developing concerts that will appeal to younger audiences. For young people, possibly in Sixth form or at college, volunteering is a great way to learn new skills and develop experience for a CV, especially for those interested in a career in event management, stage management, creative lighting, sound engineering or marketing. We offer some great opportunities! If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass this article on to them. We offer regular Big Stage concerts, a monthly 18+ comedy night and our flagship event, Three Bands Live, which is presented in a style similar to the ‘BBC’s Later with Jools Holland’, making use of three separate stages including the Hall’s main stage, which is one of the largest purpose-built stages on Wirral. The versatility of Heswall Hall as a venue is a major strength for the Big Room. I am Paul Dixon, the Big Room project leader and also a Heswall Hall trustee. The small team of volunteers working with me do a fantastic job. Currently, we stage over 40 Big Room events per year. If you’d like to help, you can contact me by email at the following address: pauld@heswallhall.co.uk By day, I am a local business development consultant and trainer. I also enjoy putting my skills to good use in the local community. All profits from Big Room events benefit Heswall Hall and the local community. We have an active Facebook group (@TheBigRoomLive) where events and ideas are promoted. Events are also listed on Heswall Hall’s website (www.heswallhall.co.uk).
