White Welcomes the Neighbours at New North West Restaurant

Culinary maestro Marco Pierre White will host a grand opening event at his new restaurant in Aughton, Lancashire next week.

The event at The Swan Inn, which takes place on Thursday 25 February, will feature a lunch and dinner service to mark the official launch of his first North West venue.

White, the Godfather of modern British cooking, will welcome members of the public, his friends and a smattering of local celebrities, to join him at the venue.

Guests will be treated to a three-course meal featuring some of the celebrity chef's favourite dishes, as well as champagne and canapes upon arrival. White will also take part in a Q & A session, with guests also receiving a signed copy of his latest book 'Marco Pierre White's Great British Feast.'

White said:

"We felt it highly appropriate to hold a normal dinner service for the launch event, as it epitomises everything we are trying to create at The Swan - a venue that is renowned for good quality food in an environment that is inviting, not intimidating.

"As a village inn, our customers are as important as our food, so we want local residents and restaurant-goers to join us at the launch. I'm really looking forward to meeting the neighbours and getting their feedback on the venue."

Tickets for the evening dinner cost 75, while guests will have to pay 55 for the lunchtime event.

Marco Pierre White at The Swan Inn represents a significant coup for Sanguine Hospitality which, with the help of Marco's long-standing friend and local restaurant entrepreneur Francis Carroll, successfully enticed the Hell's Kitchen star to embark on his first UK venture outside the South of England.

His second restaurant - Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill at the Doubletree by Hilton Chester opened on 14th February 2010.

Suite couple get engaged at local spa

NICHOLA Faddes can vouch that love is definitely in the air this February after finding a diamond engagement ring in her glass of champagne during a luxury spa day!

The Club and Spa at Hoole Hall are celebrating the first engagement to take place in their luxury couple's suite since they opened their doors in November.

Nicola Faddes and Alan Shaw of Crewe went for a spa day at the Club and Spa at Hoole Hall under the guise of a treat for Nicola's pending 30th birthday. After a day of pampering in the luxury couple's suite Alan finally plucked up the courage to pop the question.

Alan says:

"It took some planning to make the day happen. I made sure that I got Nichola's fathers permission before I did anything!

"We have five beautiful children between us so a babysitter was top on the list of things to arrange before the day.

"I spent some time looking at venues in the area and some friends suggested the new spa that had opened at Doubletree by Hilton Chester, I got in touch with Stephanie the spa manager and she helped me organise every detail."

Following a couples massage they retired to the spa bath in the rose filled couple's suite, to nibble chocolates and sip champagne, when Nichola spotted something sparkling in the bottom of her glass.

Nichola says:

"I couldn't believe it! I spotted the ring shining away then looked up to see Alan on one knee in the tub!

"After I said 'yes' Alan opened the door to the spa staff to tell them. Everyone was waiting outside and they all cheered and congratulated us, it was a magical day and the perfect proposal.

"The couple's suite was out of this world overlooking the Victorian walled garden and Cheshire countryside, very romantic."

The happy couple are now busy planning a wedding in Mexico for 2011 and are hoping that the whole family will be able to make it out there for their big day.

Alan says

"It was the dream proposal for the woman of my dreams, Nichola. The wedding has a lot to live up to after this."

Both The Club and Spa at Hoole Hall and the Doubletree by Hilton Chester are operated by Sanguine Hospitality Ltd and are located on Warrington Road, Chester CH2 3PD, seconds away from junction 12 of the M53.

A CHESTER spa is calling for all sunbeds to be removed from the region's health and fitness centres to help cut the rise in the number of young people developing skin cancer.

The Club and Spa at Hoole Hall wants all of Chester's health and fitness providers to ban sunbeds after Cancer Research UK recently revealed more than a quarter of a million 11 to 17-year-olds risk their health by using the beds.

Chester's Northgate Arena Sports and Leisure Centre, managed by The Chester and District Sports and Recreation Trust (CADSART), still has stand-up sunbeds at £1.50 for a three-minute session for visitors over 16-years-old.

Flintshire County Council has banned all sunbeds from its council-owned leisure centres and Stephanie McDonnell, spa manager at The Club and Spa at Hoole Hall, wants West Cheshire and Chester Council to do the same along with the region's privately owned gyms and spas.

Stephanie says:
"There is now no reason for anyone to use a sunbed. There are better ways to get a healthy glow through diet, exercise and tanning products that are actually good for the skin.
Our specialist face scanner reveals the damage linked to sunburn that causes aging, liver spots, wrinkles and dehydration to young women's skin. When you're a teenager you think it will never happen to you but by the time you're twenty we can clearly see the damage."

Skin tumours are now the number one form of cancer among young women with UK women in their 20s diagnosed with malignant melanoma at a rate of almost one a day, twice as common as breast cancer.

According to research published by Cancer Research UK, more than 250,000 young people aged between 11-17 years old are at risk of developing skin cancer by using sunbeds but the warnings are currently being ignored.

In a letter to the British Medical Journal, the charity said that - in England - an average of six per cent of young people use sunbeds, while half the number of girls aged between 15-17 years old in nearby Liverpool use the machines.

Funded by the National Cancer Action Team and backed by the Department of Health, two studies were commissioned by Cancer Research UK involving more than 9,000 young people as part of its research.

The first study - comprising 3,101 face-to-face interviews - was conducted by BMRB Omnibus, while the second involved 6,209 young people across six English cities was carried out by LVQ Research.
