Halesworth & Southwold Community News February 2019 13 News from the Hoppa

WE hope our customers who use the Hoppa have enjoyed the Christmas break and that 2019 will be a good year. As you know, throughout December, we ran the Hoppa on Thursdays and Saturdays with a view of including these in the future depending on how well the bus was used. Good news! It is clearly

evident it will be viable to include Saturday mornings in the Hoppa schedule. This will be a free service from February until we have been granted a change to the 511 route. We are also hoping to change

the timetable very slightly on the afternoon runs. A letter will be coming your way very shortly. There is still no news from

the Department For Transport regarding the whole future of

Dee’s Den –

Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund

THERE are great bargains to be had again this month with discounts on much of the stock. We offer a wide range of reasonably priced clothes for men, women and some baby and children’s clothes too; and lots of accessories to complete the look. We have lots of different offers every day. The £1 rail of clothes is still worth a look too – real bargains are to be had here - renewed frequently as we move unsold clothes on display in the shop to the rail – always outside when the weather is dry. We provide a wide range of

books to suit all tastes and all ages from 20p – 50p. Baby and children’s equipment and lots of toddler items too are available. We still have a range of golf equipment. A wide range of glass, kitchenware and tableware, garden items and some plants too. Again some of our unsold items are now only 20p! We have some small pieces of furniture – chairs, a telephone table, an assortment of small tables. Plenty of Jigsaws, games and toys and in the linen department; an assortment of bedding, curtains, cushions, towels, tablecloths. A wide range of stationary and haberdashery too. We have a wide range of

CD’s and DVD’s to choose from at amazingly cheap prices; also vinyl’s and taped books. We now only accept NEW electrical items, but we still have a range of electrical items for sale. Delicious homemade jams and marmalade made by Ann provides much of the stock on a regular basis – thank you so much for all you do for us. Bob, Maggie and Judy continue to provide much needed local storage space and Glen helps with electrical items, Julian with checking our watches and clocks. We are amazed at the generosity of the community which enables us to offer items at a realistic price to ensure a good turnover of stock, bringing

in much needed funds for the work of this local charity. We continue to provide additional care for those in the last weeks and days of life, enabling people to remain at home if that is their wish. We continue to raise money too for the running costs of ‘The Pear Tree Centre – an ‘Information and Support Centre’ for Halesworth and the surrounding 15-mile radius area. The builders have started the build! Exciting times! This is only possible because of the continued local community support and visitors to our shop. Thank you again for coming and spending. We raised £32,660 in 2018! Amazing! Donations of clean, usable, saleable items please. We also accept clean clothes and household items for recycling – please let us know when dropping them into us – we make several hundred pounds a month. If you have more than a couple of bags at a time or larger items or need collection, we ask that you phone 07733 668221 and leave a message, so we can phone you back to make arrangements. Thank you as always to our fantastic team of volunteers – Linda, Eileen, Sue E, Pauline, Jill, Mary, Dot, Katy, Chris, Valda, Erica, Anne, Bernadette, Sue, Dawn, Claire, Susie, Sally, Jane, Alison and Irene. If you too are interested in volunteering please contact Nikki in the shop or 07733 668221. Just to remind you Dee’s

We will be giving out questionnaires to all the passengers asking for their opinions on the service. Please take the time to complete and return them as these will determine how we run the Hoppa in the future. Last but not least, Dave

Cask is retiring as a driver after many years of volunteering for HACT. We thank him most sincerely for all the hours he has put in behind that wheel. Fortunately, he is remaining with us a Chairman. I’m sure there are plenty of other jobs we can find for him!

Thanks again Dave. Hoppa Team

Empathetic Estate Agents, Unapologetically Different

Over the years that I worked as an estate agent, for a range of corporate

and independent local agents, the more I realised that I loved the industry, but I wanted to set up a new style of agency. A design led agency, with a unique approach to property marketing, to assist us in achieving the best possible price for our vendors. I also felt it was important that it was a sensitive agent, with the well-being of the client and assisting a stress free move at the forefront of our approach, aiding fully aligned home moves and property sales. I have always been an empath and a

healer and this really shines through in my attitude to our staff and customers. For many years in my previous employment, I was continually frustrated at the lack of support I could give to sellers and buyers moving home, especially when going through difficult times such as a loved one going into care or passing away, elderly downsizing and divorces. So often moving home or selling a property comes hand in hand with a major life event, when a client may make rushed decisions as they are stressed or grieving and I wanted to offer a service whereby clients can be carefully guided and take their time. After matching our vendors with an

ideal buyer we then support all parties to manage the sale through to completion and

have a very low rate of chains collapsing. We are lucky enough to have found some like minded solicitors, mortgage brokers and removal companies, and we all work together pro-actively on all aspects of our clients move or sale. We cover all types of residential sales however, one of our main areas of business is assisting executors of wills when a loved one has passed away or if a family member has gone into care leaving a home to be cleared and sold. In this day and age people are so busy and family members often live In different counties and countries making it difficult logistically to take care of an estate. Many of our clients find it difficult emotionally too, to clear a loved ones home and deal with the negotiations of the sale. At Attik we have a system we follow once the family have claimed any items they require in accordance with the will or for sentimental value. our house clearance department then clear all perishable items, rubbish and personal items from the property and leave the larger items of furniture in to stage the property for the photographs and the viewings. The property is then placed on the market. once we reach the point of exchange the larger items are then cleared. Any valuable items are sold at auction or to our network of specialist traders. This service is very popular across both Norfolk and Suffolk.

The winner will be announced on 4th April 2019 at 1pm at our Property Pop-in located upstairs in de Argenteins restaurant, halesworth.
