Charlie Landsborough, multi award-winning inspirational/country artist, heads out on tour this Autumn in support of his 29th album “Silhouette”. This time, however, the tour will be very different - it will be opened by a leading local choir.
Having previously been a teacher before embarking on his musical career, Charlie has always recognised the vital role of music and choirs in the community.
Now he has decided to play his part in creating a larger platform for local choral groups – The Charlie Landsborough Amateur Choir Challenge will do just that.
Not only will the winning choir get to perform on stage and the overall winner receive £1000, but the whole venture will benefit one of the UK’s most vital charities.
Choirs from across every tour area are invited to take part with the proceeds (£25 per entry) going to Children In Need. Charlie himself will be donating the royalties for a year from one of his best loved songs, ‘Special’, to Children In Need.
Working in a deprived area during his teaching days, Charlie’s heart is very close to children and their needs and ‘Special’ was written for one particular little girl from his old school.
Charlie has recorded over 150 self-penned songs and each choir will be asked to submit a recording of one of these. There are plenty of styles to choose from – harmony, country, rock,
blues, ballads, gospel, there are uptempo songs and there are slow ones, something to suit everyone.
All entries need to be in by July 31st and should be sent to Charlie Landsborough Enterprises Ltd, PO Box 155, Wirral, CH31 9AS. Entry Forms and further information can be found at www.charlielandsborough.com.
The rules of the challenge are as follows:
• Choirs can have up to a maximum of 25 members including conductor. Choirs can be All Male, All Female, Mixed, School Choirs etc.
• Choirs can enter as many pre-recorded Charlie Landsborough original songs as they wish. NB Professional studio type recordings are not necessary, personal recording will be adequate
• Cost of each entry is £25, reducing if more than one entry. The proceeds will go directly to the Charlie Landsborough Amateur Choir Challenge, all of which will go to the 2013 Children In Need Charity.
• The local media, along with Charlie, will independently judge the winning choir for each area.
• Each winning choir will open Charlie Landsborough’s concert on his UK 2013 Autumn Tour in their area. They will be able to sing two songs, at least one being a Charlie Landsborough original. (It is recommended that they choose numbers other than ‘What Colour Is The Wind’ and ‘Forever Friend’ which, due to their popularity, already feature as part of Charlie’s concert.)
• Each choir’s performance on the night will be recorded and these recordings will be judged by an independent panel. The overall winner will receive £1000 donated by Charlie Landsborough for their Choir Funds. If the choice of Charlie’s songs by the Choirs have enough variation an album will be produced to be sold with all profits going to Children In Need.
• Recorded Entries must be submitted by 31st July 2013. It is advisable, however, for Choirs to send their entry forms in as early as possible (recordings can follow).
• Entry Forms and further information can be found at: www.charlielandsborough.com.
• Entries to be sent to: Charlie Landsborough Enterprises Ltd. PO Box 155, Wirral, CH31 9AS.
Charlie is at the Bridlington Spa on Thursday 17th October 2013. Bridlington Spa telephone number is 01262 678678
Recent visits have found that many owners of licensed premises in the East Riding are not aware of legislation on the control of noise at work. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has recently made targeted visits to 84 licensed premises, providing advice and guidance to assist them in complying with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations. Under this legislation, employers have a responsibility to ensure measures are in place to protect workers from excessive noise, including loud music. This week (May 20 to 25) is Noise Action Week, and they are warning that prolonged exposure to any noise, including music, can cause permanent hearing damage. Loud music in pubs and clubs not only has an adverse impact on staff, but can also cause a noise nuisance to neighbours. Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for community involvement and performance, said: “If you can hold a normal conversation in work areas without the music being too obtrusive, then your exposure is likely to be under the safe levels. If the music is obtrusive or you have to shout, people at work may be at risk and you need to protect them by taking action to comply with the regulations.” Licensees are being advised to take a number of steps, including reducing the time workers spend in noisy areas, providing staff with information on noise and providing a health surveillance programme if staff are at higher risk. For advice on the control of noise regulations, contact the council’s health and safety team on 01482 396096, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www/soundadvice.info/ For advice and guidance on how to avoid causing a noise nuisance, contact the council’s environmental control team on 01482 396301, email email@example.com or visit http://www2.eastriding.gov.uk/environment/pollution/noise/
East Riding of Yorkshire Trading Standards have issued a new warning to residents to be on their guard against scams which could con them out of thousands of pounds. Trading standards are receiving regular complaints from East Riding householders about attempted scams. Recent examples include:-
* a resident was phoned and asked if they would like to stop receiving unwanted calls from abroad by paying £1.90 and giving the caller their bank details.
* another householder answered the door to a salesman who advised they that the Government would put up their council tax if they did not have double glazing units installed.
* a resident received a letter which appeared to offer her a first prize of over £50,000 by making an order with them. The small print in the terms and conditions said this prize may not be given.
This month is Scams Awareness Month and trading standards say the main message is ‘If you’re contacted out of the blue and it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.’ It is often a family member who realises that a relative has become the victim of a scam. Concerned relatives can ask for help to reduce the amount of scam mail delivered, and by explaining to the victim that these offers are not genuine. Scams take many forms, including fake lotteries and prize draws, bogus health cures, dodgy investment schemes, pyramid selling and letters asking for advance fees. Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for community involvement and performance, said: “These scams often affect vulnerable members of our community. Some people have been conned out of tens of thousands of pounds and unfortunately those who respond to scams will receive further bogus offers. “I hope that by encouraging people to register with the Mailing Preference Service it will help to reduce the amount of scam mail they receive.” Scams can be reported by calling Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at www.actionfraud.police.uk/contact-us. For advice or to pass on details of rogue traders, ring the Citizens Advice consumer service 0845 4040506. For further advice and information visit www.adviceguide.org.uk. Register with the Mailing Preference Service to cut down on scam mail by ringing 0845 7034599, or online at www.mpsonline.org.uk. The Royal Mail has an opt out scheme for unaddressed mail, leaflets etc, on www.royalmail.com. To prevent unwanted scam phone calls and texts, register with the Telephone Preference Service by ringing 0845 0700707 or online at www.tpsonline.org.uk.

Construction students at East Riding College have brightened up their campus with a summer display of bespoke garden furniture. The joinery learners designed and built items including a gazebo, shed, dog kennel, potting benches, arbour and seating benches, and put them on display in the entrance atrium at the Bridlington campus. The activity was part of the College’s enterprise entitlement, in which students are encouraged to develop the skills that will help them succeed in the workplace and make a success of going into self-employment.
Head of construction Ian Frear said: “This project gave learners an insight into some of the skills essential to being a self-employed joiner. “They had to design and cost up the projects themselves, building in an element of profit, and then assemble them to a very high standard. “Normally, learners will practice their skills by building something and then dismantling it so this kind of activity – making something permanent – is great for their self-esteem.”
The majority of the items, with prices ranging from £5 to £700, have already been snapped up by members of staff at the College but a number are still available to buy. Proceeds from the sales will be put towards extra-curricular activities and a proportion will go to charity.
Ben Owram, 18, from Filey, said: “This was a great activity to be involved in because it was a real live project that you would be doing in the future at work.” Nathan Percival, 18, from Bridlington, said: “The opportunity to do something real has given me the chance to explore a different kind of employment route that I hadn’t thought about before.”
For more information about products available to buy or to order an item, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call 0845 120 0037 and ask for Alex or Peter.
