the following week in glorious sunshine!
In this month’s edition there is news from

high school prom, pictures from the kelsall

Country house sale won’t
make Hugo richer!
THE man whose name is synonymous with Hockenhull Hall
says he won’t make a penny from its sale.
Last month the Tarporley Talk reported that grade two listed
building was on the market for £4million.
But Hugo Arnold has written in to say that sadly for him, he
won’t become a multi-millionaire from the sale.
Mr Arnold said: “The hall and the farm are, in fact, owned by
Hockenhull Hall Estates Ltd which is owned by a family trust.
“I have never owned an acre but have managed the farm
since 1949 and have lived in the house which was derelict
since we were married in 1955.
“I have no financial interest in the property but the company
has purchased a cottage which we shall rent for our
retirement.
“Last month’s article suggested that I shall become a multi-
millionaire - a situation which couldn’t be further from the
truth!”
the Georgian building is set in 206 acres and enjoys fabulous
views across the Cheshire countryside.

JULY IN YOUR GARDEN
Gardening by Janet Heath
Hopefully this summer will be sunny so we can enjoy our gardens whether it is dining outside
or just lounging about in the sun.
Some herbs are great for adding to summer cooking. Mint is wonderful when added to Pimms
and lemonade or pop a sprig in the pan when cooking new potatoes or peas. There are many
different varieties of mint but grow in a pot or confined to an area where it can be contained, as
many of them will invade your garden.
In the vegetable garden, plant out winter leeks and brassicas such as broccoli and sprouts. Sow
salads and French beans for a late crop. Do net fruit such as strawberries and blueberries. I tried
to grow blueberries last year and had a crop developing nicely until the birds ate every one just
before they ripened! Raspberries seem to be largely immune probably as the fruit is not so easy
for birds to eat.
July is a great month for perennials and many come in bright colours so take a trip to your local
garden centre or visit some of our wonderful gardens to see what is doing well in July.
Achilleas are sun-loving flowering plants that come in a range of colours from yellow, orange and
red. Anthemis with yellow or white daisy flowers will continue into August or even September if you
cut off the dead flowers. Crocosmia are also at their best in July with their sword shaped leaves
and spikes of red, yellow or orange flowers. They may well need some support.
Cooler colours of white and blue often come to life in the evening and seem to have an inner
glow in fading light. Try white dahlias with their varied flower shapes. Many hardy geraniums have
white or blue flowers and some varieties will often flower twice if the first flowers are cut off after
flowering. The same also applies to Centaurea Montana the perennial cornflower.
Hydrangreas are one of the best shrubs for flowering in July with a range of flower shapes from
delicate lacecap to huge mopheads and some with cones shaped flowers. They prefer moist soil
and will take light shade but will also grow in full sun. Give them enough space to grow. They
flower on last years wood so if you cut them back, you may not have flowers the next year.

Charity golf day raises £20,000!


TArporley Schools Business Trust (TSBT) held their Annual Charity Golf Day at the
MacDonald portal Hotel, Golf and Spa on 4th June. The TSBT was formed nine years ago
by a local entrepreneur and has been run by a team of dads from Tarporley since then.
over the years, the Trust has donated over £250,000 to worthy causes. earlier this year,
the trustees retired and passed over control of the trust to a new team of dads, chaired by
John Millington.
The golf day was entered by 39 teams from around the uK who competed in a Stableford
competition throughout the day and there was also a nine hole Texas Scramble in the
afternoon. A gala dinner and charity auction rounded off the event. entertainment was
provided by Ian Irving, a well known and very funny after-dinner speaker. The winners of
the Stableford competition were a team from Volker rail and Gate Aviation took home the
prize for the Texas Scramble.
“We were overwhelmed by the number of teams who entered this year”, said John
Millington. “We also had fantastic support from our sponsors who donated some great
prizes for the competitions and the charity auction. We are still counting but we hope to
have raised £20,000 on the day”.
The organising committee are catching their breath before starting on the organisation of
next year’s event, which will be held on 17th June 2010. For more information on entering a
team or sponsorship opportunities please contact chair@tsbt.org

hEALTh AND BEAUTy
Q. I have unwanted facial hairs. Is electrolysis
permanent?
A. Yes it most certainly is! However, there are a
variety of factors which influence the effectiveness
of electrolysis. firstly, the skill of the operator
– electrolysis is a very skilled technique which
takes a long time to perfect so always visit a
well-qualified and experienced practitioner for
this treatment. Secondly, ‘permanent’ should
not be confused with ‘instant’ – many people
assume that the treatment will quickly solve
their hair growth problems, but electrolysis does
take time to be effective so be patient and stick to
your treatment plan as advised by your therapist.
Thirdly, the cause of your hair growth problems and
how you have been removing the hairs previously
will have an enormous influence on how effective
the treatment is so ensure that you visit a practitioner
who takes the time to carry out a consultation process
to fully understand your problem and gives you a
realistic likely outcome of the treatments.
