“Four Eyes” live music duo

Dear all,

My name is Anthony Harris. I am part of a duo with my Father called “Four Eyes” Over the last 15 years we have played music at various pubs & clubs in Warwickshire and the surrounding areas. Currently, we charge £100 for 2 & 1/2 hrs entertainment. Typically, this consists of 1hr acoustic guitar/harmonica & 1 & 1/2 hrs of electric guitar songs played over a drum/bass backing. We can do an all acoustic/harmonica evening If required. All songs played are well known. Nothing obscure.

Should you need a reference please contact Steve & Louise at The Hope & Anchor, Hill Street, Leamington Spa. We have done New Years Eve there for the past three years. Alternatively, I can send you a home recorded disc If you let me know.

Thank you for your time.

Warwickshire Community Oil/LPG Syndicate – February 2014

January saw another great oil price for both our kerosene and red diesel members.

A saving of £54.50 per 1000 litres against the average market price was made by members ordering kerosene, paying just 52.95pence per litre, whilst our members who use red diesel saved a massive 9pence per litre.

We are still able to provide bulk LPG at just 43pence per litre with an introductory £100 fuel discount and our LPG cylinders remain very competitively priced.

Public Meeting in Weston RE HS2 – 17th January 2014

Weston Parish Council have asked Jeremy Wright to come to our village and tell us how his government justifies the expenditure of HS2, given the poor economic case for it, the appalling level of damage to our local economy and environment and the complete lack of any benefits for people living between Solihull and London.

We welcome residents from Offchurch at this meeting which is at 6:00pm on Friday, 17th January at the village hall, Sabin Drive, Weston.
