Competition forces Allied Bakeries to close naan factory

first_imgAllied Bakeries has begun consultations with 108 staff at its Patak’s Naan bread factory in Cumbernauld, after it announced proposals to close the facility.Staff at the Scottish factory have been served with a 90-day notice of redundancy ahead of its closure in early 2012. The group said the move came after it could not compete with rivals in the naan bread market, such as Honeytop and Mayur Foods.Martin Brewis, Patak’s Breads general manager, said: “While we are still open to alternatives to ending manufacture, the potential closure of the site has been a very difficult decision and not one we make lightly. We have done all we can to win additional volume for the site and secure its future. While we are lucky to have an extremely committed team at Cumbernauld, the market is tough. “A period of consultation will begin immediately with everyone on the site. Our priority now is to offer practical support to help our people secure alternative employment – both within our parent company and externally throughout the local area.”The group has been urged by local MSP Jamie Hepburn to use the consultation period to examine any means of keeping the business afloat.>>Potential job losses at Allied’s Gateshead bakerylast_img read more

Coral Bells

first_imgI was hiking around Blue Ridge, Georgia, not long ago and came across a few terrific-looking heuchera, or coral bells, which I had only seen previously for sale in garden centers. All heuchera species are native to the United States, including this Heuchera villosa, which is native to the Southeast from Arkansas to Georgia and north to New York.Heuchera was the Perennial Plant Association’s Perennial Plant of the Year in 1991, and since then, more hybrids and varieties, colors and variegations have been produced than we possibly could have ever imagined.When you look at a plant tag, or a plant for that matter, it is next to impossible to identify which ones have DNA from a species native to your state or region. But then there are times when you think, “By George, there it is!”A variety like ‘Caramel’ is labeled as a hybrid variety of Heuchera villosa. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying everyone in the country should choose ‘Caramel’ or one of the other varieties that might be identified as H. villosa. But to me, it does give a clue that it might have a little more heat tolerance, since Savannah, Georgia, is far from ground zero for the heuchera.Heuchera are considered perennial in zones 4 through 8 and tend to be evergreen in the warmer climates. The plant prefers moist, fertile, organic, rich soil that drains freely. In the landscape, promote sun to partial sun in the North and partial sun to shade in the South. If you are in the South, you must try them as a sunny, cool-season component plant, similar to what you might do for a flowering kale, cabbage or mustard. It will look attractive until around the end of June, which is long after the brassicas have bolted and flowered.Treasure the foliage, but know that the plants produce tall, airy flowers in pink, coral, red or white. Many have foliage so colorful and ornately shaped that it will cause you to stop dead in your tracks, and you couldn’t care less if they ever bloom. These spikes of blossoms do bring in hummingbirds. The plants reach 12 to 16 inches tall and should be spaced 15 to 28 inches apart or as recommended by the variety tag. Varieties like ‘Amber Waves,’ ‘Caramel,’ ‘Crème Brulee,’ ‘Georgia Peach,’ ‘Lava Lamp,’ ‘Mocha,’ ‘Palace Purple’ and ‘Peach Melba’ are just a tiny sampling of those heuchera that have mesmerized me the last few years.No matter where you live in the country, you have a season where the heuchera can perform as a stunning filler plant in your mixed containers. That being said, it’s still rare in my travels for me to find them used in such an artistic endeavor. It is also still rare that I find heuchera in the landscape, as gardeners usually choose other materials.Heuchera is an outstanding plant that deserves a place in the sun, partial shade or shade. Plant them along woodland trails, in front of shrubs. Great combinations can be made with wood fern or autumn fern. Let your artistic nature shine and use them with hostas. But if you are in the South, you must try them as a sunny, cool-season component plant.Follow me on Twitter @CGBGgardenguru. For more information about the UGA Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm, go to www.coastalgeorgiabg.org.last_img read more

Chester Borrows: Parents ‘really need to know’

first_imgNZ Herald 29 May 2015THE power of one person to change their world can start with the smallest conversation.During the election campaign, I held a public meeting in Stratford. A mum approached me about a tragic situation involving her daughter, who had been referred for an abortion facilitated by the public health nurse via her school. The parents were not informed and were lied to by the school as to the daughter’s whereabouts.The girl was never counselled post the termination but just dropped off at home. With no knowledge of what had gone on, the parents were left to deal with a sudden irrational change in her behaviour.They placed themselves on suicide watch and worried their way through this terrible situation. The daughter’s behaviour degenerated and involved excessive drinking, anti-social behaviour and self-harm (cutting herself), culminating in a suicide attempt.It was then that it came out that she had been pregnant as a 15-year-old and the school had arranged intervention by the public health nurse, who had taken her to Family Planning which led, inevitably, to an abortion.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/wanganui-chronicle/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503423&objectid=11456738last_img read more

Watford revival continues with win over Wolves

first_imgRelatedPosts Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Trio of signings make instant impact as Everton stun Spurs Spurs sign right-back Doherty from Wolves Ten-man Watford continued their fine run of form under new manager Nigel Pearson with a 2-1 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday. The win boosted their hopes of avoiding relegation from the 2019/2020 English Premier League. Gerard Delofeu and Abdoulaye Doucoure fired Watford ahead before Pedro Neto pulled one back for Wolves. The visitors though failed to capitalise on a numerical advantage in the last 20 minutes after defender Christian Kabasele was sent off for the hosts. Deulofeu opened the scoring with a neat 30th minute finish when he beat goalkeeper Rui Patricio with a crisp low shot into the far corner after good work by Ismaila Sarr. Doucoure made it 2-0 in the 49th minute when he cut inside from the left and found the top corner with a firm drive. The shot clipped Wolves defender Conor Coady and left Patricio stranded. Neto reduced the arrears on the hour with a heavily-deflected effort which sailed over Ben Foster. Wolves then piled the pressure after Kabasele was shown a straight red card following a VAR review. The centre-back was originally booked for hauling down Diogo Jota just outside the penalty area. But Watford held on in the closing stages to celebrate their third league win coupled with one draw under Pearson.Tags: Abdoulaye DoucoureGerard DelofeuNigel PearsonPedro NetoWatfordWolverhampton Wandererslast_img read more
