On this blog we are always keen to promote local businesses and events. So we are happy to pass on a message from Katherine and Cynthia at The Larder, Ladywell, who write:
"We're very excited to announce that our next wine tasting will be with Neil Grayshon of L'Atypique Wines.
Neil sources from small producers across Europe who focus on organic, unfiltered and biodynamically produced wine. He'll be talking us through - and tasting! - eight autumnal wines to see us merrily though the next few months. We'll also be showcasing some fantastic new cheeses as well as providing tasty nibbles to accompany the wine.
Date and time: Wednesday 30 September at 7.00pm
Venue: The Larder, Ladywell
Price: Tickets cost £15 each and include all cheese and wine tastings plus snacks
Extras: Discounts of 10% off bottles and 15% off cases (incl. mixed cases) will be available on the night
Cllr. Liz Franklin-Johnson, one of our three Ladywell Ward Councillors has confirmed that the Council's Executive Director of Customer Services (Kevin Sheehan) has agreed to put up a strong temporary hoarding to block the debris from the public view. Apparently this will be erected very soon.
We gather that some months ago an enforcement notice was served under S.59 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 against the registered landowner, a company registered in the British Virgin Islands. However various legal issues have arisen and are being addressed with necessary care and attention by the Council's Legal Dept. The primary objective is of course to get the landlord to clear the site.
Cllr. Franklin-Johnson says "I am very concerned about the health and safety implications and have argued, and am still arguing, for the clearance of the space but was informed that this is dependant on the case against the landlord. The alternative is to block off the debris, which is not what we had requested. It is has been very frustrating but we are continually pursuing this as Ladywell residents deserve to have a clean and safe environment."
