TONI&GUY Southport thanks loyal customers as it closes after 18 years

Click on to read this notice.

TONI&GUY Southport would like to thank all of its loyal customers, as the salon makes a difficult decision to shut after 18 years of business. The salon has been forced to make this decision due to circumstances beyond their control and unfortunately they had no other option, but to close. It is with regret that TONI&GUY Southport had to cease trading on the 17 August 2016. This decision has not been made lightly and TONI&GUY will do their utmost to find all remaining staff suitable positions at neighbouring salons.

Salon Manager, James Leigh said:- "We would like to take this opportunity to thank our many clients over the past eighteen years for their loyalty, and would like to offer them all, as a gesture of goodwill, a 30% discount on all hair services at TONI&GUY Preston (01772 202200) for the next 6 months. We would also like to thank all our staff for all their hard work and wish them all the best for the future"

Landlords respond to rising cost of Housing Benefit

RESPONDING to the findings from the National Housing Federation (NHF) about the cost of housing benefit in the UK, Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at the National Landlords Association (NLA), said:- "Housing benefit is not a subsidy to landlords; it's a support for tenants to ensure they can pay for their housing. However, the proportion of landlords who let to tenants in receipt of housing benefit has halved over the last 5 years as benefit levels have not kept up with rents. The NHF is clearly still reeling from the news that its members have been ordered by government to reduce spending over the next 4 years, so it comes as no surprise that they are looking to shift the emphasis and point the finger elsewhere. The private rented sector has grown as the market responds to the increasing demand for homes, particularly from a growing proportion of tenants whom the social sector and housing associations simply are not able to support in the current circumstances. The private rented sector plays a significant role in providing much needed homes for tenants so there seems no real benefit in the NHF taking a cheap shot at landlords. What we should all be talking about is the failure of successive governments to adequately allocate its housing budget and to incentivise the building of new homes. In the long term, that would be the best use of Taxpayers' money."

Celebrating the best of Wirral's heritage

HERITAGE Open Days are taking place across Wirral in September 2016, in what promises to be 1 of the biggest and best festivals of its type anywhere. More than 100 free events are scheduled to take place all around the borough over a 9 day period between 3 September and 11 September 2016, to celebrate Wirral's architecture, history and culture.

Heritage Open Days are a national initiative co-ordinated by the National Trust but supported by many heritage groups and through funding from the People's Postcode Lottery. As has become tradition, though nationally the festival only runs for only 4 days, such is the scale of the Wirral programme that our Heritage Open Days take place over 9 days.

Among the highlights this year is a visit the newly renovated World War II air raid shelters at Birkenhead High School Academy. A chance to explore some of the historic rooms of Leasowe Castle and the opportunity to take part in a themed walk exploring the past, present and future of Wirral's Victorian masterpiece, Flaybrick Cemetery, also stand out this year. The Wirral programme is run entirely by volunteers and co-ordinated by Wirral History and Heritage Association, with support from Wirral Council.

Cllr Jerry Williams, Wirral Council's Heritage Champion, said:- "Heritage Open Days are one of the highlights of the tourism calendar for visitors and residents alike, with nine fantastic days of Wirral's important culture, history and heritage. From historic buildings and guided walks, to places of worship and wonderful gardens, there is something for everyone to enjoy."

Details of the complete programme can be found online.

Pre-booking is essential for many events, so people are advised to reserve a place as soon as possible.
