Aldershot Town Announce Plans For EBB Stadium Redevelopment

Aldershot Town Football Club today presented Rushmoor Borough Council with its proposals for the redevelopment of the entire EBB Stadium, its home since the original formation of the Club in 1926.

This would see the potential development of a new stadium, containing both seating and standing areas, that will give the Club a long-term home from which to build its ambitions on the pitch.

This new stadium has the potential to provide a better matchday experience for our loyal fans as well as those visiting our ground, supporting other teams. Features include the development of new standing and seated areas, new bars and conference facilities, which will also add vitality to the environs around the club as well as a stronger and more stable financial base, by adding revenue outside matchdays.

Shingles Vaccination

If you’re aged 70 or above, you may receive a letter from your GP inviting you for a vaccination to protect you from shingles, something the public health team would strongly encourage you to accept.

GP practices across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are writing to eligible patients to ensure older people are protected from the nasty, debilitating and, in some cases, long lasting illness.

Shingles is caused by the same virus as chickenpox. A bout of chickenpox does not protect you from shingles; the virus remains in your system and can be reactivated when the immune system is weakened – something which happens as we get older.

Shingles consists of a very itchy, painful rash that commonly affects one area of the body. It can also affect nerves, including those in the face and eyes. Before the rash breaks out, people often feel tired and run-down and may have a slight fever.

For some people, the pain of shingles can persist for several months, or even years, after the rash has disappeared. Complications of shingles can also be fatal for around 1 in 1,000 over-70s who develop the illness. This is why it is so important that eligible people take up the offer and get vaccinated against the virus.

Teaching Bursary

From September 2018, a bursary worth up to £40,000 will be available to individuals who have left the regular armed forces in the last five years and who wish to train as a teacher. The bursary is payable to those who seek to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) in England, in secondary biology, physics, chemistry, computing, math or modern foreign languages.

Money Saving Expert . Passport prices go up on 27 March 2018 - how to beat the hike

The price of applying for a passport is set to increase on Tuesday 27 March by £3 if you do it online and £12.50 if you do it by post – but there's a way to lock in today's cheaper price if you're due to renew right up until the end of 2018.

The Home Office is for the first time making it more expensive to apply by post rather than online, as postal applications cost more to process.

The price changes will come into force on Tuesday 27 March and apply to renewals and new passports (which includes if you've lost your old passport or changed your name).

Online applications will cost £75.50 for adults and £49 for children, while postal applications will be £85 for adults and £58.50 for children.

Here's a summary of how costs are changing, how long you need to have left on your passport to enter certain countries and how to renew your passport the cheapest way. See our Passport Renewal Tips guide for full help.
