Beatles Day to go ahead in Twickenham

April 29, 2016 by  

Twickenham is to host ‘Beatles Day’ to commemorate the final official gig in London which the group played.

The event in question will be held next month when 50 years will have passed since John, Paul, George and Ringo played their historic gig. It is the third time on which a commemorative day of this kind has been put on in Twickenham. Flyer printing and poster printing in Twickenham Hampton Hill could be used to generate extra interest in the celebration.

The venue for the day is a public house with a connection to the Beatles. Back in the day, the movie ‘A Hard Days Night’ was partly shot inside the place. Ringo Starr once played darts within The Turks Head, and fans have frequently paid homage to the group at the pub in the intervening period.

In early May, the pub will contain five bands eager to pay their tribute to the Beatles through their live performances. Special guests will be on hand to appreciate the music. A former chief executive of Apple Records, Tony Bramwell, will represent the record label of the Beatles. He will be joined by two secretaries from the corporation, Viv Jones and Jeni Crowley.

During the day, a raffle will take place in order to boost fundraising for local good causes. In particular, the charities Me Too & Co. and the Hounslow Animal Welfare Society are due to benefit.

Oldest Dental Practice in Redditch Celebrates 70 Years of Smiles

April 26, 2016 by  

What’s the connection between Joanna Lumley, the TV licence and Minuteman Press neighbour and customer Dentist@Redhouse?

They all have a 70 year anniversary in 2016!

Yes, dental practice Dentist@Redhouse, on Prospect Hill, has been helping Redditch folk to smile since 1946.

A great part of its success lies in its family values – the practice is led by husband and wife Drs Dinesh and Sarbjit Phakkey. They took over Redhouse in 1990, joining a team who’d worked together for many years, some of whom are still with the practice today.

The team’s welcoming approach and its quality of care has earned the loyalty of its patients. As Dr Phakkey explains: “Many of our patients were treated at Redhouse as children and now bring their own youngsters to be treated. Others may have moved away but still make the journey back to visit a favourite dentist for a check-up or more advanced treatment, or keep a regular hygienist’s appointment.

“We’re always happy to see them and we also welcome new patients for cosmetic work such as implants. Redhouse has enjoyed a long history but we’re also looking to the future. By offering the latest treatments we ensure we’re providing the best possible dental care to the people of Redditch.”

Minuteman Press is delighted to help Dentist@Redhouse with their 70th celebrations with outdoor PVC banners that are going on the outside of the building to make sure no-one misses their fantastic news!
