Chesterfield burglars target the elderly

November 30, 2010 by  

Police in the Chesterfield area are looking to investigate if there are any links between a series of burglaries after several incidents targeting the elderly. Print companies in Brampton or other areas around Chesterfield are likely to be enlisted to produce leaflets or posters to help bring members of the public forward to help with the police enquiries if people think that they may have seen or heard anything that might be significant to the investigations.

In what must of been very frightening encounters for their elderly victims, the burglaries took place late at night. The first incident in Chesterfield occured on the 11th November when a handbag with [Read more]

Celebrity chef boosts reputation of hospital food

November 29, 2010 by  

The official opening of the new restaurant at Forth Valley Royal Hospital was graced with the presence of a celebrity chef, Nick Nairn. As a rule, hospital canteens have not had the very best reputation when it comes to culinary fare but in contrast, the Forth Valley Royal’s restaurant opened with a culinary demonstration from Nick Nairn who served up a chicken and vegetable teriyaki stir fry to the delight of those attending the event.

Serco, the company behind the restaurant, have just been awarded a Healthy Living award for their work in promoting healthy food options in their outlets. Their restaurant at the hospital is a far cry from the canteen style that people have come to associate with hospitals and boasts a view across the Forth as well as promoting what they hope will be a vibrant atmosphere with fresh food made to order in the middle of the restaurant, to create a sense of theatre. The menu has been developed by chefs following guidelines on nutrition in conjunction with a team of dieticians. The healthy meals will be served in what is hoped will be a relaxing environment for staff as well as, of course, patients and their visitors.

A plaque was unveiled to officially open the new restaurant and, no doubt, print companies in Falkirk with experience in producing eye-catching menus for other restaurants around the region were enlisted to produce the menus tempting customers with the tasty yet healthy food options that will be on offer in the Forth Valley Royal.

Campaign receives boost from Cannes film director

November 28, 2010 by  

Having used the services of companies specialising in flyer printing in Ware, a campaign group have turned to an award winning film maker from the area to help further their cause. STOP Harlow North (SHN) is a campaign group that is opposed to the proposed developments in the villages in East Hertfordshire that border with Harlow. Plans have been submitted for the area to develop thousands of new homes in this region by 2031. Campaigners had been using printed leaflets, emails and holding meetings in the village hall in a bid to drum up support to object to these proposed developments.

They had 2,000 names already objecting to the flood of new homes intended to be built in this rural area when, David Paul Irons from Ware, who had recently premiered a short film, Casting Call, at the Cannes Film Festival, approached the campaigners to offer his services.

Mr Irons felt very strongly about the cause and his campaign film is based around interviews with figures such as the members of the campaign group and Mark Prisk, a Government Business Minister and the MP for Stortford. Interviews are interspersed with visually stunning scenes of this area. It is hoped that the film has captured the rural charm of the area and will really bring home the message that this is a real threat to the rural life of East Hertfordshire and direct people to the website to object to the plans before consultation over the 8,500 homes finishes on the 25th November.

Theatre to debut in Hedge End

November 26, 2010 by  

Companies offering poster printing in Hedge End may soon be busy producing posters to promote the exciting new shows that will be coming to the area courtesy of Hedge End’s new theatre. The theatre will cost 4 million pounds to build, and will be located next to the performing arts department of Wildern School, and will open in 2011. The theatre will be able to seat 308 people and will mean that people in the area have an alternative venue to go to see a variety of professional shows rather than travelling the distance to The Point in Eastleigh or the Mayflower theatre in Southampton.

Amateur groups will be able to make use of the theatre’s facilities during the week but on Friday and Saturday evenings the venue will play host to professional theatre companies who are touring bringing a range of drama, comedy and musical performances to Hedge End. Youngsters will also be able to enjoy a number of master classes which will be staged at the theatre to teach them about writing or behind the scenes in theatre. The theatre’s facilities include a bar and a box office as well as dressing rooms for the theatre companies.

The name of the new theatre has been unveiled as ‘The Berry Theatre’. A resident from Hedge End suggested the name which pays homage to the heritage of the town as a fruit picking area, having once been fields of strawberries.

Publicity will be vital to the theatres’s success, and it is anticipated that not only will it be printing posters to advertise forthcoming attractions, but also banners and brochures.
