Memories from my recliner chair

Memories from my recliner chair.

Recliner and riser recliner chairs can be both comfortable and helpful and an ideal place to remember days gone by.

Memories from my recliner chair. These can be of anything really and can be happy exciting or even sad.

On this occasion, they were both sad and a little happy, if that doesn’t sound too silly! I was reading the news about Gordon Banks passing away, which obviously made me feel sad. Then though I remembered how we met and that made me really happy and allowed me to smile to myself.

I was about to open my first business of my own. The local newspaper had promised me some coverage of the opening in return for an advert. They suggested it could be even better if we got a celebrity to perform the opening ceremony for us.

There was no one I could think of that might be able to help. Then for no real reason, that I can remember I thought of Gordon Banks.  At that time he was a coach at Port Vale, having retired from playing. This was after the loss of an eye in a car crash.

Anyway, I phoned Port Vale and asked if I could speak to Mr Banks. I was told he was taking a training session. The lady I was speaking to took my number and said she would get him to call me back.

As you can imagine, I thought that no more would come of it. However about an hour later the phone rang. When I answered he said this is Gordon Banks can I speak to Robert, please.

Gordon Banks being interviewed

I told him it was me and explained that I would like him to open my new shop. This was in Stafford and he lived not far away, I explained it would be from 5 pm for about an hour and a half. Him to say the shop is now open and sign a few autographs. He hesitated slightly and I worried and then said to him I will, of course, pay you for your time. Gordon replied that it wasn’t that he was just wondering which was the best way to get to the shop.

Anyway, we agreed on the day the time and that I would pay him £100, he wouldn’t take any more!  That was all the contact we had and you can imagine I was worried. Having advertised that he would open the shop, would he actually arrive.

There was no reason to worry Gordon Banks turned up half an hour early. He introduced himself and wandered the shop to see what I was selling. Even then there was an odd recliner chair, which he tried!

By 5 pm the agreed opening time we had a very large queue and Gordon duly cut the ribbon. He said to the waiting crowd the shop is open come on in!

I had asked him to be there from 5 pm until about 6-30 pm depending on how many people came. This man was fantastic we had to close the doors at 9-30 and he was still signing autographs.

We closed the doors to the public and said thank you to Gordon Banks for staying so long. I offered him some extra money for staying on so long but he would not hear of it. In fact, he said how much he had enjoyed it We had a couple of drinks and he went home. Not before though he had stood and chatted to a lot of people waiting outside. He must have signed autographs for another 20 minutes.

The local papers ran stories about the even and said what a success it had been. It certainly got the business off to a great start, you could say Gordon Banks saved the day!

Winning the League cup at Wembley 1972

Afterwards

Now, this was way back in 1978 well before the internet and instant picture posting. About two weeks after the newspaper supplied me pictures of the evening. Those that Gordon appeared in I asked for extra copies of. One afternoon I went out to his home to take copies for him. I just knocked on the door, his wife answered and just invited me in. I explained who I was and she told me that Gordon and been excited at the event. We went into the lounge ad he was delighted to see me and loved the pictures. We chatted for a while and I then went back to work.

After that Gordon started doing after dinner talks with himself, Geoff Hurst and George Cohen. I went to one of his early events which was held at the Top of the World ballroom in Stafford. It was a  so-called ‘gentleman’s evening’ (not sure how I got in!). Everyone in their finest dinner jackets and bow ties. I had told the guys I was with that I knew Gordon Banks but they didn’t believe me! I did not for one minute think he would remember me.  But as I walked passed the bar his hand came out and grabbed my arm. He shook my hand and then introduced me to Geoff Hurst and George Cohen. They said he had been going onto them about the night he opened my shop! He was as charming that night as ever.

So Sad

I am certain there are hundreds of thousands of stories being told about Gordon Banks now. Mine isn’t that special really but I will sit in my recliner chair with that and many other memories for years to come!

Oh and of course I watched him and those guys win the world cup back in 1966. Even better than that I was at Wembley when Stoke won the league cup back in 1972.

Great memories of a great goalkeeper and a truly nice gentleman! Why oh why did he never get the knighthood he deserved. He will though to me, always be Sir Gordon Banks.

 

The Adventure Begins!

Exams are over, school’s out and for many, it is just the start of a new adventure! So, ensure their adventure does not end up with them in an adjustable bed, or wheelchair, because of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Safety for anyone in life is important but for students, perhaps leaving home for the first time, it is even more so. In their first year, most will go into university designated accommodation (halls of residence) whilst most second-year students will opt for private flats or shared houses. This is where the danger can lurk.
By law, all rented properties should come with a gas safety certificate which means that the boiler and other gas appliances are safe and have been properly and regularly checked. As well as gas appliances, anything that has a flue to extract fumes (such as an open fire or wood burner) should also be checked and the stacks swept two, three or four times each year.
A good landlord will, of course, know about and comply with these regulations, but others may not know or may not care. Heaven forbid that they might have to spend their own money to look after the people occupying the property despite taking rent from them! However, CARBON MONOXIDE is not known as the silent killer without good reason!
Carbon monoxide is tasteless, colourless and invisible but can have devastating effects and can kill within a few minutes. For those who are lucky enough to survive CO poisoning, it can cause damage that can affect the heart, liver, kidneys, brain, lungs or indeed any part of the human body. It can leave the person crippled, bedridden or wheelchair bound for the rest of their life.
So, if you have been looking at accommodation for any member of your family, young or old, off to university or college – then the first and most important thing to do is to insist on seeing a CURRENT GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATE. Most good landlords will have this ready to show you anyway, but some may forget. Whatever you do, make sure that their possible error is not something that robs your family of its future potential or even worse, the life of one of its members.
Do not let a wheelchair, mobility scooter or an adjustable bed become part of your family’s life just because you didn’t ask to see the GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATE or did not check that the chimney had been swept.
We will return to this desperately important subject again but if you need more information then please check out, at the very least, our latest campaign with student flyer Don’t let the next headline, be your deadline!
Be sensible and make sure your loved ones are safe from carbon monoxide!

If University beckons for your family make sure they are safe

Exams over, schools out but for many, it is just the start of a new adventure, make sure that their adventure does not end up with them in an adjustable bed or wheelchair because of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Safety for anyone in life is important but for students, perhaps leaving home for the first time, it is even more so. Most will, in their first year, go into University designated accommodation (halls of residence) but some and certainly most second-year students will opt for private flats or shared houses and therein can lay the danger. All rented properties should come, by law, with gas safety certificates that mean that all boilers and gas appliances a safe and properly and regularly checked, as well as gas items anything that has a flue that extracts fumes such as an open fire or wood burner should also be checked and the stacks swept two, three or four times a year.

The good landlords will, of course, know about and comply with these regulations, but others may not know or may not care, heaven forbid that they might have to spend their own money to look after the people occupying the property despite taking rent from them, but CARBON MONOXIDE is not known as the silent killer without good reason.

Carbon Monoxide is tasteless, colourless and invisible but can have devastating effects, mainly death of course but as well it can cause damage to those who survive death that could affect the heart, liver, kidneys, brain, lungs or indeed any part of the human body and leave the person crippled and bedridden or wheelchair bound for the rest of their lives.  

So if during this summer you are going to look at accommodation for any member of your family, young or old, off to university then the first and most important thing to do is to insist on seeing a CURRENT GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATE, most good landlords will have this ready to show you anyway but some may forget but whatever you do make sure that their possible error is not something that robs your family of its future potential or even worse the life of one of its members.

Do not let a wheelchair or mobility scooter or an adjustable bed become part of your families life just because you didn’t ask to see the GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATE or did not check that the chimneys had been swept regularly.

We will return to this desperately important subject again before the start of the University year but if you need more information then please check out, at the very least, one or both of these excellent websites for information and advice. https://www.consumersafetyinternational.com/ https://www.leanonus.co/

Be sensible and make sure your loved ones are safe from Carbon monoxide

 

Carbon Monoxide Alarms, could they be the death of you?

CO POISONING

We all know that Which? magazine gives good honest independent reports and when they say that 54 dangerous carbon monoxide alarms have been removed from two of the leading online sales sites, you will realise that there is a real need to be concerned.
 
With an alarm that does not work properly, it is possible that you could go to sleep in your adjustable bed and never wake up!
 
For many years now, Molly Maher has run Consumer Safety International which is a fantastic charity that offers information and helps with the problems that can’t be found due to faulty appliances that can create CO poisoning. Molly created CSI over 30 years ago after she lost her son to CO poisoning and her daughter was left in a wheelchair as a result of a faulty water heater in a holiday apartment in Tenerife. You can watch The Molly Maher Story by Ray Kemp. Since then, there has been a growing awareness of the problems of carbon monoxide and even big campaigns to raise people’s perceptions surrounding BBQs and the safe use of them.
 
One campaign has been run by Sonya Palasiuk through LeanOnUs to help us all understand the dangers posed by BBQs and CO poisoning. So many times, we use a BBQ for cooking and all enjoy the results but the CO emissions that are given off from them, especially when the coals are in their ‘white’ state can be deadly! Never ever move a BBQ into an enclosed space such as a tent or caravan awning to keep warm as the afternoon turns to evening and the temperature drops. Carbon monoxide is not called The Silent Killer without good reason; it is colourless, odourless and not visible, it can force the oxygen out of enclosed spaces all too easily and then you find a disaster the morning after a fun-filled evening when those folks who were silly enough to bring the BBQ inside are either dead, unconscious or just left brain damaged.  
 
I do not want to be a harbinger of doom and gloom, but it is best we are all as aware as possible of the dangers created by carbon monoxide. It is the same with gas boilers, gas fires, wood burners and any open fire used indoors they can all be dangerous if they are not properly maintained and serviced (at least once a year). Chimneys should be swept regularly to make sure that there is a clear way for all the fumes to escape. Sometimes you will see bedrooms with open fires, or even occasionally with gas boilers installed in them, and this can be so frightening because if they are not in perfect working order it is possible to go to bed and be overcome by carbon monoxide fumes as you sleep.
 
Which? reported on 54 different alarms that did not give off the correct audible alarms or in some cases did just not work. It is far better to make sure all your appliances, that use proper flames to produce heat, are properly serviced and maintained rather than relying on an alarm that does not work!
 
 

 

Replacing your adjustable bed mattress

Adjustable bed mattresses can, perhaps, need changing more often than a normal bed, this because of the movement of the adjustable bed action they are laying on.

What then do you need to look for when you find that the mattress you are using is not giving you the support you need. Listed below you will find details of various mattresses and information about them that will, hopefully, help you to make the right choice for your comfort.

Electro Relaxer

electro relaxer

This is a very comfortable mattress with traditional fillings and pocket springs that move with your body and with the action of your adjustable bed. As there is no edge wire the mattress bends properly. With hypo-allergenic fillings and a lovely Viscoe Damask fabric cover this mattress is double sided so that you can turn it over to lengthen the life of the mattress, but make sure you get someone to help or do it for you.

Electro Pressure Reliever

Pressure reliever

Designed to reduce pressure on the body especially the joints this can be a very beneficial mattress for those who, like me, suffer from the pains of arthritis. With a combination of memory foam onto a reflex foam, you will be assured of great comfort and support.

This is a no turn mattress and is hypo-allergenic as well.
