son John Lennon is remembered in his hometown at the Official 30th
Anniversary Memorial Concert.
Musical stars of all eras will unite on stage when the ‘John Lennon
Tribute Season’ closes with a unique and emotional charity concert
finale LENNON REMEMBERED, on Thursday, 9 December 2010, at the
Liverpool Echo Arena. All proceeds from the concert will go to the
Alder Hey ‘Imagine’ Appeal, Radio City’s Cash For Kids and The
Mathew Street Festival.
LENNON REMEMBERED will take place in John’s birthplace 30 years on
from his tragic, early death which shocked the world, and will
commemorate what would have been his 70th birthday. The Memorial
Concert, organised by The Cavern Club in association with Chas Cole,
of CMP Entertainment, will form the climax of two months of
celebrations of John Lennon’s unique contribution to the cultural
landscape, not only of the city of his birth, but also his immortal
position in global popular music.
John Lennon’s significance and appeal continues to span the
generations, and musicians from every era will congregate on stage
to remember, celebrate and perform unique versions of Lennon’s most
famous songs – and, no doubt, one or two forgotten gems alongside
them as well.
Performers confirmed to appear will be announced in the weeks to
come, as this event unfolds and undoubtedly builds momentum and
becomes a highly-charged, long-awaited tribute to one of the City’s,
best loved sons.
John’s half sister, Julia Baird, has whole-heartedly backed the
Concert – along with the whole John Lennon Tribute Season. She
said:- “This will be a very emotional evening, not only for
our family, but I’m sure it will be a very special night for the
other performers on stage and for the audience, as we all unite in
our love for John and his wonderful, immortal music.”
Bill Heckle, Director of The Cavern Club said:- “We have
enjoyed many great musical nights in this City over the years, but
an evening dedicated to John, attended by those who knew and loved
him, as well as those who worked with him, plus the thousands of
fans who, purely and simply, have been touched and moved by his
music throughout our lives, will really make it into something
A Liverpool and worldwide occasion not to be missed and a
celebration and emotional evening of the musical legend himself,

Local Woman Shares Advice on How to Save Pounds and Pounds!
LOCAL resident Emily
Jones, from Southport in Merseyside has been shortlisted as one of
15 finalists in a nationwide hunt to find Britain’s Savviest Shopper
2010. There have been almost 6,000 entries to the competition
launched by Nectar in May this year and Emily’s savvy shopping tip
has put her in the running to win the coveted title as well as a
shopping weekend in Paris
Nectar has searched high and low to uncover all the different ways
we Brits save our pennies and find out how we treat ourselves thanks
to our savvy spending habits.
Emily is one of 15 regional finalists chosen by a panel of savvy
experts including Jasmine Birtles, founder of moneymagpie.com, and
Justine Roberts, co-founder of leading parenting website Mumsnet.
Emily loves to get something for nothing and loves a deal. She
collects Nectar points at Sainsburys everytime she gets her
groceries and also through other online retailers at nectar.com. She
has been able to buy a variety of games for her Wii with the points
she’s collected – getting the most out of her shopping.
Emily also buys some of her household items from the local pound
shop:- "I save a fortune on cleaning products in the pound shop
as I don’t pay a premium for them and they’re just as good as
expensive ones. I’m really careful with my money and make sure that
I also use online cashback sites and money off vouchers. I never go
out without using a voucher whether it’s for a meal or to the shops.
When it comes to treating myself with the money I’ve saved, as well
as my Wii games, I love jewellery and in particular my charm
bracelets. With the money I put away thanks to my savvy spending,
I’ve managed to buy lots more charms and I’ve filled up four
bracelets already, you can hear me coming in the high street!”
The savvy shopping trend is not only alive in Southport, it’s
sweeping the nation. A recent survey carried out by Nectar reveals
that in order to save money, 32% of people in the North West just
like Emily are using loyalty cards and vouchers where they can to
make their money go further. In addition 40% of people are selling
things on ebay that they no longer use, a sign that we are shopping
with our heads rather than our hearts.
Claire Chandler, Head of Customer Marketing at Nectar comments;
“Britain is clearly full of savvy shoppers. The entries we’ve
received for Nectar’s Search for the Savviest Shopper 2010 range
from the more logical to some very imaginative hints and tips on how
to curb your spending so you can have more money to treat yourself.
According to our research Emily joins 39% of the nation who also use
savings from their savvy shopping to go out for a meal at a
restaurant. It can be extremely satisfying to watch those pennies
rack up and you only need to make some very simple, often very small
Emily’s savvy shopping tip is now displayed on the Nectar website
and the residents of Staffordshire can get behind her and help her
win the much coveted title of Britain’s Savviest Shopper. Go online
