    Cornish charity helps victims of Grenfell fire – Pirate FM - July 12, 2017 by admin

    A Cornwall charity is helping those affected following a fire in London that is believed to have killed at least 80 people.

    It comes after the organisation was approached by a therapy group helping young people and adults traumatised during the event.

    Victims of the Grenfell Tower fire are now being offered a range of outdoor activities and counselling sessions to help them recover.

    'Kids on the Green', a collective of trained therapists who have set up a calm space for local children, teens and families, are being supported entirely by local businesses and community donations.

    All the facilities are provided free, including food and drink, arts and crafts, games and children's entertainment, as well as alternative therapies.

    ShelterBox supporter Juliet Emerson asked whether the Cornish charity could help the group with some tents or gazebos, as all their activities are out in the open at Norland Open Space, near the Edward Woods Community Centre and estate.

    They also have to set up their activities every morning and pack away every night.

    Now ShelterBox has provided all-weather cover for a range of outdoor activities and counselling sessions.

    Five all-weather gazebos with side panels were dispatched, as well as a full-size marquee donated by a local business.

    Juliet said: "We are working with an amazing team of helpers who are giving up so much time to help make this work a reality for as long as it is needed.

    "The organizer Zoe Le Veque is amazing: dynamic and clear headed and with other wonderful people is making Norland open space a place for children and adults to come and play and paint, talk and grieve, eat pizza and spin hula hoops.

    "Local shops big and small have generously donated fruit and snacks, drinks, paints and other craft materials, toys and even a marquee. A circus troupe has been offering their time for nothing.

    "The little children seem fine on the surface but you only have to look at their pictures to see their distress - they use many colours, but black predominates. Adolescents are more direct but subdued."

    Georgia Langley, from Kids on the Green, said after ShelterBox's tents arrived: "These look absolutely fantastic.

    "Thank you so very much for such a kind and generous donation. We are almost entirely reliant on donations and volunteers and this will make a real difference to our set up and pack away procedures, as well as the overall running of the project."

    ShelterBox Chief Executive Chris Warham didn't hesitate in approving the request from Kids on the Green.

    He said: "Providing shelter for people who've suffered a disaster is exactly what we do, and it is rare we are called to respond in our own country.

    "The Grenfell Tower fire is a tragedy with worldwide repercussions. But our response was mostly in recognition of this admirable community project, and a wish to put smiles back on the faces of local children and their families.

    "We know from our work in disaster and conflict zones that families affected by disaster need so much more than simple shelter so it's great to see this group of therapists offering their professional services free."

    Sunroom Kits – Conservatory Gazebos To Enhance Your Home - June 12, 2016 by admin

    For those who are looking for something a little bit more functional than the traditional, standalone gazebo, you should consider a conservatory-style gazebo instead.

    One very popular model is the Gazalum 12 x 15 1 Door 5 Side Glass Window Gazebo shown here, which is one of several sunroom kits they offer.

    Now, as this gazebo is designed to be attached to your house, it has several important advantages.

    One of the easiest ways to grow herbs, flowers, fruit (small ones only no melons!) and, of course, lettuce and tomatoes is the AeroGarden.

    This is a relatively new invention, and it makes growing things indoors not only easy, but fast too. Can you imagine the sweet flavor of your own home-grown fruit and veggies? Organic, no genetic experiments, no pesticides, no germs from food handlers, and all vine-ripened produce the way it was meant to be from nature.

    See it in action here, using time-lapse photography:

    They make a wide variety of models some for specific purposes, some to take advantage of available space, and some that are just fun (but which might just encourage your children to develop green fingers at an early age):

    So, back to the gazebo / sunroom itself.

    This Gazalum gazebo is a five-sided all-weather model, built of maintenance-free aluminium, and has all the features of a Florida room.

    The walls are built of 1.75 inch thing extruded aluminium, and you have a choice of colours white, brown or sand.

    The patio doors include a screen as well as a keyed lock, so that you can leave your property secure for whenever you have to leave your home unattended.

    The super-structure of the roof is made from a high-density polystyrene core and aluminium panels. This means that the entire assembly is self-supporting, with no need for any additional internal walls or posts, and if you should happen to live somewhere that gets a considerable snow fall in winter-time, you can take comfort from knowing that the roof will bear the load without any problems.

    Now, these Gazalum sunroom kits are supplied in kit form, and can be installed on either new or existing poured concrete patios or decks provided, of course, that the existing structure is sound.

    These units must be securely fastened down simply placing them on the ground or on a patio stone base is forbidden.

    All in all, if youre looking for a really great sunroom kit to enhance your home, then we can highly recommend the Gazalum 12 x 15 1 Door 5 Side Glass Window Gazebo.

    Tropical Lifestyle Living Bali Huts, Gazebos and Pergolas - July 6, 2015 by admin

    Wondering what will make your house an amazing home?

    If you have been wondering what will make your house an amazing home, you might have to do more than just look on whats on the inside but also what you put in your backyard. Not many people may think a lot about what they do with their front or backyard and if they do, they would probably get some landscaping.

    A Bali Hut or a Gazebo is just what you need to liven up your home and get a better outdoor lifestyle than what youre usually used to. Bali Huts and Gazebos are perfect for making sure that every space outside of your house is put to good use with the purpose of making you comfortable in those times when you feel like going out after being cooped up inside the house all day or when you simply need to get some fresh air.

    Since you have somewhere to go to just within a few meters away from your house, it will make for a perfect excuse to stretch out your legs and walk a little bit to get some sunshine. Not only is it practical to have a Bali Hut or a Gazebo in your back or front yard, but it will also be something that will greatly improve the aesthetics of your outdoor lifestyle experience.

    Many of our customers have attested to the massive benefits of getting a Bali Hut or Gazebo in their yard and more often than not, they will tell you that it just makes everything look better and more inviting.

    When you think about it, what good is a well landscaped front or backyard when you dont even feel like going out to experience them.

    While looking at it will certainly give you a feeling of satisfaction and some level of self fulfilment, but there is nothing like experiencing it first hand and if you do have something where you can just sit and chill out or an amazing place that you can entertain friends and family.

    All went well and everything fitted, although I have had trouble with the roof corner packing bundles, so although they arent perfect they do the job.

    Doing this on my own required hiring scaffolding to be able to get to the height and I ended up leaving a manhole in the thatching so I could attach the thatch corners and then inserted and max bonded pieces into position from underneath to fill it in.

    Tremendous product and very happy family.

    Cedar Gazebos – Stan Fairbrother Garden Structures - April 17, 2015 by admin

    Our cedar gazebos are a great way to add beauty and practicality to your garden. A gazebo can create a sun porch in the middle of your lawn or garden. In the warmth of a lazy summer afternoon, theres nothing better than relaxing in the shade of a quality Stan Fairbrother gazebo. Gazebos a History

    Gazebos are truly as old as the art of gardening itself and, as might be expected, the first to have them erected in their gardens were royalty and noblemen.

    Gazebos were a common sight in ancient Rome and Pompeii. Later, Persian gardens took the gazebo to a whole new level, with colourful tents or two-storey affairs complete with marble columns and cupolas. Some were used as tombs for their owners.

    Today, cedar gazebos crafted in the finest red cedar are a more cheery affair. Its a venue for a quiet lunch or afternoon tea, a shaded place to read or chat, a focal point for weddings and parties, or even a bandstand. Increasingly, a cedar gazebo makes a great housing for a hot tub.

    The traditional style for a cedar gazebo is with a roof and decorative sides. But a bespoke cedar gazebo can be entirely enclosed. They can have trellis built-in, so you can grow climbers and add rustic appeal to your garden. They can be built with doors. Our bespoke cedar gazebos can even revolve so you catch the summer sun all day long.

    Talk to Stan Fairbrother today on (01772 814274) or request a brochure and start planning your gazebo.

    Visiting the heart of Mexico City - April 8, 2015 by admin

    Tall shady trees with fountains and nymphs at Alameda Central Park.

    So two friends, Marjorie and Mayann, my husband Alex and I went out of the subway into bright noonday sun on the busy Avenida de Hidalgo. We reached the Alameda Central Park, a huge garden constructed at around the 16th century. The authorities, as early as the colonial period, understood that the population needed a place away from the bustle of city life, a cool oasis where they could do their afternoon paseos. This 400-year-old garden was full of shady elm trees, well-manicured hedges, fountains, gazebos, and the eye-catching Hemicycle of Jurez, a white semi-circular colonnaded tribute to Benito Jurez (five-time Mexican president and reformer) and inaugurated in 1910 during the centennial celebration of the Mexican independence.

    Across the avenue was an attractive gray granite building, and we learned that it was the Palacio de Minera, built in 1793. A statue of the Spanish monarch Carlos IV mounted on his steed, El Caballito, stood in front of the building on a wide, rectangular plaza. This was the Plaza de Manuel Tlsa, named after the venerated architect who did the sculpture. The palacio itself was historical, as it started out housing engineering and metallurgical schools, at a time when New Spains (Mexico) wealth rested on iron and precious metal mining.

    The Palacio de Bellas Artes. The Torre Latinoamericana is behind it

    We then reached a palatial and historical building, the Quinta Casa de Correos (Fifth Postal Building), so-called because the postal building moved its location four times until this final destination. The building was initially constructed in 1761 as a Franciscan hospital, but was later renovated during the term of President Porfirio Diaz.

    As we stood at the vestibule, we gazed with awe at the majestic marble stairs, winding up like two enormous wings; the gleaming walls of bronze and marble (from Florence, it was said); the porticoes, and the small windows reminiscent of the Doges Palace in Venice. There were four floors, and it took five years of renovation to reach its present splendor. There was a glass dome that allowed bright sunlight through its crystal panes. Again, we put this under our must-come-back-and-explore file.

    And who could resist the open air, second-hand bookshops? The alley of endless books between two tall buildings seemed to wind itself all the way to the next block. We browsed through books by Latin American authors, Spanish translations of the latest crime thrillers, and even a hefty Mafalda (beloved comic book character) volume.

    Open-air bookshops on the Avenida de Hidalgo

    We also saw a shop announcing, in large letters Petacas! selling wallets and leather goods (pitakas, anyone?), a perfumery shop for custom-made scents, and a street named Simon Bolivar.
