Pupils visit Liverpool mosque


BARNSTON Primary School has taken part in a special visit to Liverpools largest mosque, to
learn about Islam and its place in British culture.
Children from the school visited the Al Rahma Mosque in Toxteth along with the Mayor of
Wirral, Cllr Les Rowlands, to meet representatives of the place of worship and gain first-hand
experience of Islam.
The visit was arranged by Wirral Councils Minority Ethnic Achievement Service (MEAS),
which aims to celebrate inclusivity and promote cultural awareness in schools and the wider
community.
As part of the trip, the Mayor was presented with a silver mug with his name engraved on it.
The Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Les Rowlands said: It is important, now more than ever, that
people understand different faiths and the role they play in our communities, and also see
for themselves this beautiful building and what it means to those who use it.
It was the first time I have visited a mosque, and we received a wonderful and gracious
welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would like to thank our hosts.
During the visit, the children watched a Wudu demonstration, the Islamic act of preparing
parts of the body before formal prayers are said, and learned about the Arabic language
and examples of famous
Muslim scientists and
physicians.
They also observed prayer
time in the mosques
main hall, and heard
a presentation by the
mosques Education Officer
Catherine Odita about Islam
and the significance of
the different areas of the
building.
Tuyet Ramzy, Ethnic
Minority Consultant for
MEAS said: Multicultural
trips and events make a
big difference to our school
children. It is imperative
that our teachers are
aware of stereotyping,
discrimination, racism,
ethnicity, multiculturalism
and culture diversity, and
that this awareness is
reflected in the curriculum.
It is vital to promote
inclusion, multiculturalism
and diversity in our
schools.

Managing Director
Alan Ball feels that its
all about service. Our
product is simple. If
your double glazing is
misted up we can replace
the glass at a fraction
of the cost of a new
window, in any type of
frame, and with a new
5 year guarantee. But
its not just about saving

people money, although


that obviously helps.
Many tradespeople have
struggled since last year
and I honestly feel that
during the good times a
minority perhaps didnt
focus on customer care
as much as they should
have done. We make sure
we turn up when we say
we will, do the job the
customer requires and
leave their house as clean
as a whistle. I often get
comments back from
customers on how they
really didnt expect that
sort of service which,
in a way, is very sad for
the service industry as a
whole.

surrounding area and

Alan is finding that his


approach is a major
factor in his success.
The truth is that its
not just the personal
satisfaction that I get
from doing a good job
but also it makes good
business sense. I get a
huge amount of business
from friends and family

of people Ive done


work for, which just
goes to show how much
a little bit of effort is
appreciated.
So, if your windows

A hot night
in Barnston
The Barnston Primary School bonfire and
fireworks night was a big success, helping to
raise funds for an outdoor classroom.
There was a great turnout for the event
which was organised by the Barnston
Parents Association.
Chairwoman Lorna Hayes said: Everyone
had a great night, the fireworks display
was fantastic and I would like to say a big
thank you to everyone that got involved
for all their hard work to make the event a
huge success, as well as all the friends and
families of Barnston Primary School and the
local community for supporting the school
to raise money for an outdoor classroom and
learning resources this year.
There were also some fantastic entries for
the bonfire night safety poster competition
and the winners were Thomas, Nackall and
Amelia.

The Bowen
Technique
WHAT IS IT?
The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy
that is applied using very gentle pressure.
The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise
points of the body to perform Bowens unique sets of
rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and
soft tissue of the body.
There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard
tissue and no force is used. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing.
It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts
the body to reset, repair and balance itself and clients
report the experience of pain relief, improvement of
function and recovery of energy.

HOW DOES IT WORK?


One of the least understood areas of the body is the
brain.
There are something like 600,000 signals that travel
from the brain into the body every second and these in
turn come back to the brain with information which is
then interpreted and sent back out.
In the case of the Bowen move, the brain is unable
to do this instantly and needs more information
to form a response. As it is, just when the brain is
asking for more info, the therapist has left the room,
and therefore the brain has to send specific signals to
the area in order to gauge a response. If the client is
lying down, the immediate response is nearly always

It is not uncommon for


even longstanding pain to
be reduced or resolved in
two or three treatments.

rapid and deep relaxation. The client will also often


report that they feel a tingling sensation or warmth
in the area just worked. It felt like your hands were
still on me, is a common comment. We believe this
demonstrates that because the move is out of the
ordinary, the brain is looking for information about
what happened.
HOW LITTLE IS DONE!
One of the more difficult elements to come to terms
with is how little is done during a session. In addition, the client may well walk out of the treatment
room having felt little or no improvement over and
above a sense of relaxation. However, the reactions
to Bowen in the days following a treatment can often
belie its soft and gentle approach. Stiffness, soreness,
headache and feeling like Ive been run over by a
bus! are common. All excellent signs, they demonstrate that the brain and body have started the process
of repair.
This process, when started, is generally rapid and
it is not uncommon for even longstanding pain to
be reduced or resolved in two or three treatments.
Most sports or work-related problems can often be
dealt with within the two or three treatments, making
Bowen not only good remedial treatment, but cost
effective for the client as well.

MIGRAINES
Although musculoskeletal problems such as frozen
shoulder, back and neck pain account for the majority
of conditions brought for Bowen treatment, it can
also be helpful with more organic problems. Clients
have reported significant improvements with asthma,
migraines, irritable bowel, infertility and other reproductive problems. Even hayfever has been brought to
Bowen.
There are no such things in this life as guarantees
and this can be said of Bowen as well. If the body
responds to the treatment, then it can and will start
the process of repair. If it doesnt respond, then no
harm is done.
PLEASE NOTE:
The Bowen Technique is not a substitute for medical treatment.
This information is not intended to replace guidance from your doctor
or other suitably qualified medical professional who should be contacted
for advice if you have any health concerns.

to revolutionise their Irby showroom.

The first phase of the expansion to


their upstairs showroom has begun
with renovations to incorporate
fully functional bathrooms settings
including 10 operational showers and
12 working basins and taps all with
the latest digital technology. Added
to this under floor heating and a
working sauna so clients can really
soak up the full Wirral Wetrooms
offering.
Owner Dave Sergison commented,
Customers will literally be able to

you can easily upgrade your existing


loo. They all include an oscillating
shower with forward and backwards
movement, air purification and a
warm air dryer.

The Geberit AquaClean range is


comfortable and stylish too. And with
a model to suit every style of home,
it would make a perfect addition to
your new spa-like bathroom.

get a live demo of all the must-have


bathroom accessories. You can turn
showers on, see how they perform
on different settings and see for
yourself how the valves and knobs
work. There will be full audio visual
equipment along with high-tech LED
lighting throughout.

And you can even spend-a


penny by sampling the fabulous
new Geberit Aquaclean! Finally,
complete the picture by choosing
from a selection of their stunning tiles
and you really be able to create a
tried and tested space to be proud
of.
Heart of Irby Village

Dave and the team have always


supported the local community in
Irby and the surrounding areas, and
played a part in the life and soul of
the village and love being there,

Dave commented We recognised


Irby as a great place to stay and
grow in, we like the space we are in.
Weve taken on 2 apprentices and
making this significant investment
into the building can only improve it.
Our new showroom will be
completely unique for the Wirral,
and will revolutionise the experience
of buying a new bathroom for our
customers. We want nothing more
than people to come in and try them
out for themselves, even down to
taking your shoes off and feel the
under floor heating, you can even
take a shower if you are game, we
dont mind!
And with service and quality and
experience that is second to none,
your will be sure to find your slice of
Bathroom Bliss, right here in the heart
of Irby.

A You dont have to spend a vast


amount of money to purchase a
Geberit toilet. There are also less
expensive models in the range such
as the Geberit AquaClean 4000. This
compact loo seat is designed to
replace your existing loo seat and is
straightforward to install, as it fits on
the existing seat.

Please note that the Santa Sleigh is run by Heswall Round Table Volunteers in
conjunction with some local School PTA's and endeavour to cover as many roads
and houses over the Heswall area as is physically possible and safe
to do so.

Q Should I be concerned about how


much water is used in spray-function
toilets?

A The Geberit AquaClean 4000 only


uses 400ml of water at each use, and
although this is more than a normal
loo, there are positive environmental
aspects to this choice, such as using
less toilet paper. Water, chemicals
and other raw materials are wasted
in the production of toilet paper, and
while its biodegradable, the process
still leaves chemical traces in our
water supply.

Greetings from Heswall


For over 40 years the Rotary Clubs of Heswall and Varde in Denmark have been making
biennial reciprocal visits. Heswall President Bob Fiddaman went over to give greetings from
Les Rowlands, the Mayor of Wirral, and a former member of the Heswall Club.
Pictured from left to right, are Kristian Hede Jensen, President of the Varde Club, Erik Buhl
Nielson, Mayor of Varde and Bob Fiddaman, President of the Heswall Club.

Twitchers delight at wader festival


THE first ever Wirral Wader Festival took place on the Dee Estuary in November.
The idea was to celebrate the vast numbers of wading birds that spend the winter on the
peninsulas shores.
In partnership with the Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens, Wader Quest, the RSPB, Cheshire
Wildlife Trust and Shore Cottage Studio, a full weekend of events took place at Wirral
Country Park, Thurstaston and the Dee Estuary.
Wader Quests Rick Simpson said: There are annual celebrations of wading birds in the
shape of a festival across the world on various continents. We noticed a distinct lack of a
wader festival in the UK so decided that something should be done to address this.
We are firm believers that conservation starts at home, and although we didnt know the
Wirral very well, after learning about the remarkable efforts of the Dee Estuary Voluntary
Wardens (DEVW) to protect the thousands of birds roosting on West Kirby and Hoylake
beaches at high tide, we were inspired to look further.

BOOKS
with LINGHAMS BOOKSTORE, HESWALL

By Kerry Keight

The leaves have fallen off the trees and though it is unusually mild, there is one word I have to say to you
CHRISTMAS! We get really excited this time of year because of all the lovely special new books and once again
it is VERY hard to choose which to review.
But after much deliberation and book sniffing (admit it you do too) I have chosen just three gorgeous books, so
come on by and see the rest.
We have one special event and that is our annual visit from Father Christmas.
This year it is on Saturday 19th December at 11am put it in your diary!

NORWEGIAN WOOD
By LARS MYTTING
Who knew that a book
about chopping and
stacking fire wood would
be so popular? With
the insurgence of wood
burners this is definitely
the book you need to
get the perfectly stacked
log pile. I havent got
a wood burner but the
book is beautiful and full
of humour, which is an
odd thing to say about
a book that is basically
about chopping and
stacking wood. Lovely
pictures of perfect wood
piles and the Scandistyle that everyone
seems to love.

ALICES ADVENTURES
IN WONDERLAND - A
COLOURING BOOK
The love of colouring
books still continues and
though I havent caught
the bug, I have bought this
because it is very special.
It contains the original
illustrations of Sir John
Tenniel and wonderful
retelling of the story
which is a nice touch as
most of the new colouring
books dont have stories
in them. I think there will
be a fight who gets to
the colouring pencils on
Christmas Day. Try and
keep within the lines!

WALK THIS WORLD AT


CHRISTMAS TIME
by DEBBIE POWELL
A wonderful book that will
enhance children, it has lots of
illustrations and flaps and so much
to wonder and talk about it will be
a book to keep forever. Christmas
is celebrated in diverse ways in this
countrydoes anyone else have
fried chicken and sweet corn for
Christmas lunch like we do?
No I thought not! I have lived
in various countries over the
years and each once had their
own unique way of celebrating
the Christmas, all with their
own different traditions. Walk
the World At Christmas, shows
illustrates all the strangeness but
also the similarities that we share
with our world family.
