Newark Business Club 
eg: Restaurant, School
IT WAS a chilly, autumnal start to the morning as chairman Amy Codd welcomed 70 business people to Newark Business Club at the Everyday Champions Centre on Friday, October 6.

Amy, who had replaced her usual business attire with brightly-coloured clothes including a feather boa, joined other club members who had dressed loud for the day in support of Global’s Make Some Noise campaign to raise awareness and funds for a number of smaller charities, including Newark’s Children’s Bereavement Centre.

Parish Notices
Amy thanked Bob Poynter and James Fountain for their work on the rail consultation paper, which was sent to the Department for Transport on September 28.

Following its recent renovation and official opening, Carriages, the cafe at the Newark Castle train station, provided cakes and sweet treats for guests to enjoy during the meeting. Newark and Sherwood District Council paid for the first 20 cakes and the rest were donated by Carriages.

Business Development
Wes Thompson, from Silicon Forest, invited everyone to scan the QR code shown on the big screen to automatically add an event to their calendars.

On October 17 Silicon Forest is hosting a talk about the repeal of the Data Protection Act and its replacement. Wes hopes the event will help businesses to start preparing for the change in the law in March next year. Attendees were invited to arrive at Castle House (opposite Newark Castle station) from 6pm.

Julie Reader-Sullivan reminded club members that business support was still available from D2N2, to help people improve and grow their businesses. Julie invited club members to attend an event on November 16 at Newark Beacon looking at how ‘Marketing is Changing.’

Newark Business Club Action Group
Action group chairman James Fountain updated guests with news of recent local planning applications. He hoped a decision would be made on the future of the old Robin Hood Hotel so developments could begin, and that the planning application for Kelham Hall would be successful so it could be preserved for future generations. James alerted guests to the potential closure of the custody suite at Newark Police Station.

James and the group were concerned that if the suite closed then anyone taken into custody would have to be transferred by two police officers to Mansfield or Nottingham, rather than remaining in Newark.

The action group is contacting Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping to prevent the closure. James invited any interested parties to attend the next action group meeting on Monday, October 23, at 6pm at William Saunders.

The Future Of Fuel For Our Engines
Steve Beeching, from Newark Embroidery, had his engineer hat on as he shared some insights in the future of fuel. By 2040 diesel engines will cease to be manufactured. In the meantime, drivers of diesel cars will be charged more for parking, via permits, and in public carparks, where a registration plate entry is requested.

Electric cars, though more cost-efficient to re-charge, are not without their drawbacks as lithium stocks are nowhere near as plentiful as oil and the tariffs for electricity usage are at the mercy of the energy companies. Steve thinks he has found a solution in hybrid cars. For more information about hybrid cars speak to Steve – he can be found on the club’s Facebook page or direct email via the directory.

Derry Building Services – Built On Training
Derry Building Services director Steve Burley took to the stage to share how the firm has flourished in recent years. From ongoing training to apprenticeships, DBS continues to invest in its 245-staff year on year, while also taking on some of the best-known building projects in the UK.

Recent project highlights for the building giant include the National College for High Speed Rail in Doncaster; Centre Parcs in Woburn, Bedfordshire; Warner Brothers Studio in Leavesdon, Watford; and St George’s Park in Burton-upon-Trent.

Steve began his career as an apprentice electrician in 1972, joining DBS in 1991. He rose through the ranks, gaining experience as an estimator, electrical contracts engineer and project manager before being appointed as director in 2000. He believes in investing in the next generation and continuing to spot talented staff and supporting them into new roles within business to create the next generation of directors and managing directors. Steve closed his presentation by encouraging others to recognise the potential of training and developing staff for the benefit of their businesses.

Focus on - Andrew & Co Solicitors

AFTER MOVING into larger premises on London Road, Andrew & Co Solicitors has gone from strength to strength, expanding both its staff and client base across Newark and further afield. As well as corporate and commercial services, the firm also specialises in private client work including family law, wills and estate planning.

 We have an experienced and trusted team of solicitors who, over the past 180 years, have helped hundreds of families in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire plan for their future. Andrew & Co Solicitors also offers employment support, personal injury and motor law advice.

Partner Michael Pace said: “I am delighted that we have been able to work with an increasing number of commercial and private clients who have benefited from our ‘centre of excellence’ approach. “Rather than having smaller offices spread out across the region, we have two ‘centres’ – one in Newark and one in Lincoln – from which we offer a wide range of legal services under one roof.

“Since moving into a new building, our Newark office has continued to thrive. “Not only is it bigger but we’re still on the doorstep for those looking to get trusted, honest legal support and we have a dedicated client carpark.”

Andrew & Co is also keen to support local good causes and has recently donated £2,500 to the Children’s Bereavement Centre and £200 to the Alzheimer’s Societystaurants in the UK are seeing a growing trend over the past decade and it would not be an overstatement to say that Nepalese cuisine is finally being recognised as different and as an alternative variation of the Indian style of cooking.

Nepal’s cultural diversity has resulted in a variety of cuisines based upon ethnicity and therefore in Nepalese cooking, we can see an amalgamation of the Tibetan and Chinese influence from the north and the Indian influence from the south. So, apart from the ever-popular and famous Indian dishes, The Everest Inn tries to bring to its customers the best of these Nepalese cuisines in what we call the Chef’s Platters and the Chef’s Recommendations section of the menu.

Therefore, although we use almost the same set of spices as in Indian cooking, the difference lies in the style of cooking, which is focusing on simplicity and not overdoing the flavours and oil which people nowadays are noticing and appreciating.

So, for people who want a change from their regular choice of curries, we provide the healthier and tastier version.
