MTG Chairman’s Report 2014

The Tidy Group has had another successful year and gained one new member, Anne Shaw.

In March some of the group met with Simon Long and Beverley Sutton of Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council to learn about the Borough’s Community Projects and through that meeting joined the RHS Britain in Bloom It’s Your Neighbourhood project. In July, we met with Roger Tait, a judge and assessor for the Heart of England It’s Your Neighbourhood project, who awarded us Level Three ‘Developing’ and in his report praised the group stating that the work done around the village by the group was a fantastic community effort.

June 6th was Communities Day and nine Tidy Group members were joined by four Conservation Group members, one Parish Councillor, Sue Roberts, and two NUL BC wardens; the group tackled the himalyan balsam around The Pool area. Simon Long and Trevor Hambleton who holds the Council portfolio for leisure, culture and localism, came to thank everyone for their hard work. The himalyan balsam removal will be an ongoing yearly project!

John B successfully applied for the green grant and community chest which we have used for investment planting, geraniums and other bedding plants for The Vicarage Lane Bed and for the planting up of the new planters and the wooden barrel planter on Poolside.

For the second year running we were nominated for the Newcastle in Bloom Community Champion award. John and Lynda attended and we won an award under the category of best community group. Well done all.

We have continued litter picking as a group and individually and on the whole the village looks much tidier for all our efforts. We will continue to target litter hot spots.

Financial report. 2014

Income this year has fallen to a total of £615.89 from three sources: Marley Eternit , The Community chest grant and a £4 donation from the summer fayre. To this can be added a carryover balance of £1825.49 from the previous year.

Previously in the year October 2012 to September 2013 there were 8 sources of income from various donations / awards this number has fallen to 3 !

We are continuing to expand our permanent planting sites . E.g our two new planters at the entrance to the village at a cost of £786.00. Because of the dry summer jerry cans had to be purchased to carry water to the various beds . Strimmer cutter blades were required to control weed growth and to keep the environs of some beds tidy.

£640 was spent on plants from the miners memorial , Leycett lane to near the Alins houses throughout the village.

Third party insurance is a necessary expense for ouir work and we have managed to reduce this from £121.60 to £79.50 this year. As one of the central demands relate to the insurance cover 20 high vis jackets have been purchased costing £180.00.

We should like to thank the Parish council , Newcastle Borough Council and other donors for their continuing support in our endeavours .

October 2014

PR & Sponsorship Report: 2014

The Tidy Group has tried to raise the awareness of villagers in Madeley in a number of ways this year, as follows, with the intention of attracting new volunteers to our small band.

New posters were produced and placed in two parish notice boards and in The Madeley Centre. Thanks to Andy C for their high quality and eye catching appearance.

We have replaced the tatty flower bed signs with new professional looking signs. The first large one was stolen twice from The Vicarage Lane Bed and has now disappeared. The smaller ones are now in all the beds and most of the large planters.

20 new high vis tabards with our new logo were purchased. We need them for health and safety purposes and also highlight that it is the Tidy Group working around the village and hopefully to attract more volunteers.

Two new planters were purchased under the new welcome to Madeley signs at Bevan Place and Smithy Corner as requested by a Parish Councillor. We approached NUL BC for second hand planters but they had none available. We asked for quotes from Broxap, Marshalls and Bailey’s Streetscene. The first two company’s quotes were in the thousands and so we used Bailey’s Streetscene, which was in the hundreds of pounds. The planters have our name and logo on to again highlight to Madeley residents of the work our small group does.

In August, we had an awareness stall with an album of photo’s showing the work we have done over the past 11 years and how the flower beds have come on and matured. Unfortunately no new volunteers were forthcoming.

Madeley Responders have produced a new recruitment leaflet and Andy C has kindly agreed to work on something similar for the Tidy Group.

Chris Machin

Gardening Report 2014

We started gardening again early March and have tried to target one area per week as a group. This has worked quite well although we have a number of beds, planters and troughs to maintain.

Due to storm damage, Chris W, Sue & Chris M, spent two hours each raking up debris around The Pool and Springs, which was then collected by NULBC.

Once again, Simon Long obtained 30 bags of soil improver for us which we have used for various areas around the village including the two new planters.

Helen and Roy planted up the raised planter by The Poolside Tandoori which has brightened up that area. Roy once again painted and repaired the Long Trough and John B cut back the overhanging branches. John and Lynda planted up the barrel planter on Poolside.

All the flower beds and troughs were weeded before Roger Tait’s RHS visit in July and his visit coincided with them all looking at their best.

Alan, Phil, Sue & Chris M sited the new planters under the two new welcome to Madeley signs and then planted them up. A number of people have commented on how colourful they are.

Alan has applied for 500 bulbs from NULBC which will be given to John Caulkin for him to plant at The Plantation at Madeley Heath.

Unfortunately, Fred Bailey’s memorial tree died and has been replaced by a Malus Golden Hornet.

Thanks to all who have gardened with us this year both in Madeley and Madeley Heath; and to Liz Forster, Isobel Hughes and Dereth Carr for their plant donations. Also to Simon Long, Beverley Sutton and Mark Jones from NUL BC

Lifestyle advice
Smoking cessation
If you’re thinking of quitting smoking, or if you’ve tried before, you probably know that it’s not just about willpower. It’s also about having a plan and getting support. That’s where our nurses can help with one-to-one support and a free range of nicotine replacement treatments and non-nicotine medicines to help control your cravings. With support you’re four times more likely to quit.
For support:

Weight and diet
Maintaining a healthy weight is very important. Being overweight or underweight increases the risk of a range of diseases that have a significant impact on your health, such as heart disease, diabetes, back pain and arthritis.Those who are severely obese can expect decreased life expectancy, on average 11 years less. Currently one in four adults are overweight and a recent report predicts that by 2050 over 50% of adults and 25% of children will be obese.
Three major factors are responsible for the increase in obesity, diet, physical activity and family history. Over recent decades, encouraged by the food industry and marketing, consumption of energy dense nutritionally inadequate food and drinks, containing high levels of saturated and total fat, salt and sugar has increased, while relative consumption of fruit and vegetables has fallen. Less than one in three adults eat five or more portions of fruit and vegetables daily.
Changing methods of travel and labour saving devices have reduced physical activity. Children spend more time watching television, playing computer games and using the internet and there is less sport at home and school. Weight is influenced by genetics (family history), for example the main indicator that a child will become obese is that both parents are overweight – four out of every five children will be overweight.
Five tips:
-1. Shop healthily
-2. Eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day
-3. Make physical activity a daily part of your life
-4. Periodically check your weight
-5. Balance calorie intake with energy expenditure
For one-to-one advice and support make an appointment with any doctor or nurse.
Teenage services
Your consultation is confidential. No matter what it is about – sex, drugs, family, bullying, weight, body image, alcohol, stress etc – or with whom it is with, doctor or nurse, it remains confidential.
Book an appointment in the usual way, in person, by telephone or on the internet .
We offer full contraceptive services including emergency contraception and advice on quitting smoking, weight reduction, counselling and alcohol issues.
