ABOUT EMS Technology

– SIXPAD is an EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) training device that delivers electrical stimulation directly to the muscles causing them to contract and relax exactly as they would during exercise.

– The SIXPAD product range uses an electrical frequency of 20Hz. Muscle fibres react differently to the strength of the electrical current and the duration and frequency of the electrical impulses. Japanese research shows that 20Hz is the optimum frequency for EMS training because when frequencies that exceed 20Hz are applied the muscles quickly tire.

– Each SIXPAD is programmed to deliver a comprehensive 23-minute workout to be worn once a day. The product automatically cycles from warm-up to cool-down. The program progressively increases exercise intensity in stages as time elapses, and automatically stops when the program is completed.

– If worn every day, and used as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle, SIXPAD can develop and tone muscle, while it can build core strength and keep muscles engaged for longer.

Distinctive, Like No Other, Cadello

With an Asian and Italian heritage, a smooth recipe that took more than three years to develop and the inspiration that arose from Venetian masked balls, the amazing drink of Cadello. A brand unlike any other that you have ever seen before, its premium drink is set to define a category of its own.

Cadello serves up a spirit as magnificent as the wealthy merchants of Venice and masked balls that came to be the inspiration behind this brand. Providing a distinct and singular experience, this drink is crafted with eight carefully selected ingredients which unveil flavours of coffee, chocolate, star anise and vanilla, with hints of caramel, hazelnut, mint and toffee. The ingredients are infused in grain alcohol and then distilled separately, before being carefully blended into French Oak barrels with coffee beans, to age into a spirit that encapsulates the perfect depth, complexity and smoothness.

Cadello is perfectly smooth and can be simply enjoyed on its own to allow a full sensory experience of the flavours mentioned above. A drink that is pleasing at any time of the day, Cadello works well as an aperitivo, digestivo and a delicious addition to any cocktail. Fashioned by top bartenders around the globe.

It works well as a Cadellotini, Cadello’s very own spin on the much-loved Martini. This cocktail was created by Goethe Bar in Zurich and includes Cadello, Vodka, Frangelico, Cherry Liqueur and Espresso. Cadello also tastes, super well combined with fresh lemon juice, Tio Pepe Dry Sherry Fino and Ginger Syrup to create the Fizzy Fiddler. A cocktail created by award-winning bartender Chloé Merz-Salyer.

Cadello is available from Honest Grapes for £30. For more information visit Cadello

Team GB freestyle skier Rowan Cheshire burst onto the international scene in 2014, when she became the first British woman to win a Halfpipe Gold medal at World Cup level at only 18 years old. In the process, she quickly established herself as one of the most exciting prospects across all Winter sport. Still only 21, Rowan is widely regarded to be the future face of British Winter Sport, as she looks to become the first British skier ever to win a medal at the Winter Olympics.

Top Tips for Injury prevention in skiing

As knee and ligament damage are the most common injuries to acquire when skiing it’s important to hit the gym and prepare your body for the slopes. This will help prevent injury and also allow you to have the fitness to ski longer and on more challenging terrain.
I’d recommend warm ups being focused on single leg stability movements, such as single leg hops and hops on and off a box, in different directions. This will help build power and strength in the legs and build stability around the knees.
Including balancing exercises are important to increase core stability and prepare your legs and also prevent injury. You can perform great single leg balance exercises on a bosu ball, by balancing on the flat side while trying to stay as stable as possible. Adding movements to this is a great progression.
Skiing involves your full body, so making sure you work out all the major muscle groups is very important.
You need to rest properly, skiing can be a very taxing sport and if you push it and ski when you’re too tired you could be putting yourself at risk of injury. Stretching and keeping your body fuelled well, will aid in the recovery process.
Being out in the snowy mountains and in that cold environment can often bring on illnesses such as a cold. This can bring a downer on the trip but also put you at risk of injury if you decided to power through and ski anyways (as you aren’t as focused and clear headed). Making sure you’re consuming enough healthy food and getting your vitamins and minerals and not consuming alcohol will help fight those bugs. Also make sure you’re prepared with enough layers, and I always recommended taking a few hand/body warmers.

The ultimate Strictly boy band of dance bring their spectacular show to London’s West End next February. A huge success for the Strictly celebrities, Rip it Up – The 60’s brings the decade smashing into the 21st century through an explosion of song, dance, acrobatics and amazing visuals to celebrate the most revolutionary cultural period ever in its first ever West End run, opening at the Garrick Theatre for four months from the 7th February 2019.

Following a highly successful 2018 UK wide tour, McFly’s Harry Judd, JLS’s Aston Merrygold and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, will be joined in London by The Wanted’s Jay McGuinness and are paired alongside an incredible cast of dancers, singers and the Rip it Up live band to entertain with a psychedelic mix of music, style, culture, and fashion. With Aston and Jay singing, Harry on drums, and Louis performing the amazing gymnastic feats that made him one of our most successful Olympians, at the beating heart of the show is the fab four’s phenomenal dancing talent.

Following the hugely successful 2017 tour Rip It Up – The 50s Jay McGuiness returns to the Rip It Up family and joins Louis Smith, Aston Merrigold and Harry Judd in the West End next spring making up an awesome foursome. Formerly one fifth of The Wanted who celebrated worldwide success with hits such as All Time Low and Glad You Came, Jay stole the hearts of the nation as he took to the dancefloor with professional partner Aliona Vilani to become the 13th champion of Strictly Come Dancing in 2015.

Jay says: “I’m really looking forward to joining the cast as the undoubtedly best-looking member! Louis, Aston and Harry put on an amazing show touring with the 60’s and I’m so grateful to be joining them. I can’t wait for me and the lads to sit right in the middle of the West End and Rip. It. Up”.

Drummer Harry Judd was part of the worldwide pop phenomenon McFly and McBusted, with 7 number one singles, 19 top 10 singles, 2 number one albums, a bestselling book and a BRIT Award. He has played countless sell-out arena tours, toured the world with One Direction and starred in Hollywood film ‘Just My Luck’. Having won the Children in Need special edition of Strictly Come Dancing in 2008 with professional Ola Jordan, he went on to win the 2011 season of Strictly with Aliona Vilani and the 2015 Strictly Christmas special with Joanne Clifton making him Strictly Come Dancing’s ‘Champion of Champions’.

Harry says: “I love to dance. Along with playing in a band, there’s no better feeling than being on stage dancing. I was brought up listening to ‘60s music by my parents, which has made the whole show even more special to be a part of. Aston and Louis are both incredible performers, so I am looking forward to taking the show to the West End stage, and to welcoming Jay to the group”

Pop star Aston Merrygold has sold over 6 million records in the UK and over 10 million worldwide and is the recipient of Two BRIT Awards and 5 MOBO’s as part of the hugely successful boy band JLS, who rose to fame as runners-up on the X Factor in 2008. A contestant in 2017 on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing with professional Janette Manrara, his shock exit in week 6 by the judges caused public outrage and he was dubbed ‘The People’s Champion’. Aston continues to release music as a solo artist, his last single ‘Precious’ featured Shy Carter (Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo, Charlie Puth, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw) and Grammy Award-winning beat boxer Rhazel. His debut single ‘Get Stupid’ was an international hit and his EP was released in 2017 along with a sell-out UK tour.

Aston says: “It was so exciting to join the cast of Rip It Up on the 2018 UK tour. I felt like I had some unfinished business when it came to dance, and it’s been amazing to work with familiar faces. I’ve loved putting my own spin on some classic 60s moments and can’t wait to show that to a West End audience!”

Louis shot to fame in 2008 when he put British Gymnastics on the map by winning a Bronze medal in the pommel horse at the Beijing Olympics, the first Olympic medal for a British gymnast in 100 years. The British sporting superstar counts 4 Olympic medals from 3 separate Olympic Games amongst his career highlights, most recently winning a Silver Medal in the Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games in 2016. Having secured his position as one of Britain’s most successful artistic gymnasts, Louis has subsequently enjoyed an ever-rising TV and stage profile. Earlier today Louis announced his retirement from the world of gymnastics. Please find attached his supporting statement.

Following the London 2012 Olympic Games, Louis took part in and won, that year’s Strictly Come Dancing, lifting the coveted Glitterball trophy with his professional dance partner Flavia Cacace. He also won the Strictly Christmas special in 2014 with his professional dance partner Aliona Vilani.

Of today’s announcement Louis says:

“‘I’m over the moon to be joining the cast for Rip It Up again, and especially now in the West End. Being a part of the tour was incredible. To be amongst such talented people and receive the response that we did every night is something I never took for granted and now I’m just so excited to take things up another gear and put on a show worthy of the West End. I’ve always loved performing and having the opportunity to better myself as a performer, so this opportunity couldn’t be better suited for me.”

Undoubtedly one of the most energetic shows to ever hit the West End stage, just watching will leave you exhausted! No other show provides such a fantastic window into the musical magic of the 60’s, with a state-of-the-art screen featuring era-defining footage and celebrity contributions all adding to the host of visual delights.

Dance the night away to British legends such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and American superstars such as The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, and The Mamas & The Papas. Listen to music from Mersey Beat, Motown and Mod to West Coast and Woodstock. Mixed in with a bit of Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach, Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan with soul classics from Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Motown legends Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and The Supremes.

Rip It Up celebrates some of the most iconic sounds, sights and events from the tumultuous period which transformed the 20th Century. The 60s are back with a bang!

Lifeplan Unveils New Branding and Proposition

‘For everybody, everyday’

The Vitamin and Mineral Supplements brand launches new website, logo and branded product range

November: Lifeplan, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of vitamin and mineral supplements, has revealed a major brand refresh, launched via a newwebsite which hosts an updated brand logo and product packaging design.

Lifeplan, which earlier this year received £500,000 backing from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF), has unveiled a brand-new strapline, ‘for everybody, everyday’. The new positioning and fresh branding has been evolved in order to continue the strong growth of Lifeplan’s brand identity. The growing health and wellness industry is forecasted to uplift by 8.6% over the next five years, with sales values expected to hit £457 million in 2021.

For the first time in 20 years, Lifeplan’s brand logo has been updated and simplified to become a recognisable marque of the company’s quality, across multiple platforms and products to target a wide range of audiences has been redesigned as a destination for inspiration and advice, as well as transaction
The new strapline ‘for everybody, everyday’ embodies the Lifeplan’s vision to become the vitamin and mineral supplements partner for everyone at every stage of life. Where anyone can easily obtain the best nutritional supplements, to help them improve and maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle
Product packaging has taken on a new colour and illustration-focused design, to allow customers to easily identify supplement groups and will be rolled out over the next few months

Sarah Brockhurst, Lifeplan’s Marketing Manager commented, “At Lifeplan, we spot industry trends and drive them forward with our innovative products, but as such an established name in the market with the valued trust of our customers, we’ve not necessarily put the innovation of our own brand first, until now. For over 35 years we’ve made the highest quality vitamin and mineral supplements for customers worldwide, making them accessible across multiple channels to ensure those seeking support for their health can do so easily.”

“However, the market is growing, consumers are far more health conscious and taking vitamin and mineral supplements is much more mainstream.

Beloved and iconic artists The Osmonds return to the UK with their latest album, and wish you a ‘Very Merry Rockin’ Christmas’! Taking in 18 dates, the tour kicks off in Blackpool on November 16 and culminates at the Isle of Wight’s Shanklin Theatre on December 15, with the Osmonds performing old favourites as well as tracks from their new album of festive classics.

The Osmond Brothers – Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay – recorded their debut album in 1963; since that time, and with the addition of Donny, Marie and later Jimmy, the family has released approximately 200 albums, sold over 100 million worldwide, and have 59 gold and platinum records. The Osmonds have never been scared to try new things, and have covered every musical genre from Barbershop to Rock to Gospel to Jazz, as well as recording in eight languages: Swedish, Japanese, Samoan, German, Spanish, French, Latin and of course English.

Their first big hit, ‘One Bad Apple’, went straight to number 1 in the US Billboard chart and held the top spot for six weeks. In 1972 their smash hit ‘Crazy Horses’ reached number 14 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 in the UK singles chart. The Osmonds have written a majority of their biggest hits – including ‘Crazy Horses’, ‘Let Me In’, ‘Goin’ Home’ and many more.

The Osmonds have continued to develop their musical talents and abilities, and though Alan and Wayne have now retired, Merrill and Jay continue to perform together – now in their sixth decade performing as a family! Their harmonies are unmatched and they know how to touch the hearts and souls of their fans; with this new album of Christmas favourites they show that the best is yet to come.

This year’s crop of Pickering’s Gin Baubles is the biggest ever!



Fill your festive season with mirth and merry as the must-have Christmas decoration (and gift) is now on sale. Pickering’s, the Edinburgh distillery and purveyors of Christmas cheer, has crafted over a million gin-filled baubles ready for the tree-mendous demands heading their way.

Gin fans across the country can now deck their trees with baubles of merry, marking the start of the festive season with a fun twist – mixing up the traditions of gold, red and tinsel with a burst of gin-filled fun.

The original gin baubles are now ripe and ready for customers to bring the novelty back at Christmas – move over Christmas jumpers and sandwiches – Pickering’s Gin Baubles are the novelty tradition of Christmastime. The team of elves at the Edinburgh distillery have been working around the clock for the third year running to meet demand – with a bumper crop making their way to the USA and even Australia and New Zealand

Available in a rainbow of colours, the gin-filled baubles come in pink, blue, purple, yellow, red and green with a rose gold screw lid and a silk red ribbon, sure to add a splash of Christmas joy to trees and households across the country.

First produced as a fun offering at a Christmas fair in 2014, the first proper production run in 2015 sold out in just a few days. The following year, Pickering’s Gin Baubles made headlines after selling out in just 82 seconds. The elves produced almost a million baubles last year to meet demand and the 2018 crop the biggest ever with over 1.2 million produced.

Matthew Gammell, co-founder of Pickering’s Gin commented: “We’ve always had a ‘make it yourself’ attitude to Pickering’s. From setting up our distillery in the Edinburgh Vet School in 2013, to filling 20 thousand Pickering’s Gin Baubles a day on-site in 2017, everything we do is in the name of bringing our own brand of botanical engineering with a wink and a smile to fans of the spirit. As we go into our third year of selling our gin baubles, we’re thrilled to bring the Original and Best Gin Baubles to the UK and beyond”

Marcus Pickering, co-founder added: “We are constantly bowled over by the popularity of our gin baubles. Back in 2014, we sold a hundred as a bit of fun for our local Christmas fair and now we are sending boatloads across the Pond and even to Australia and New Zealand. By putting gin into a Christmas decoration, I think we really tapped into that fun, festive side of Christmas – they make people smile when they receive them and you can even have a party when you’re taking the tree down.”

Sure to sell out fast once again, pick yours up from Pickering’s, Selfridges, John Lewis, and over 200+ retailers across the country.

Pickering’s Gin Baubles are retailed in a gift pack containing six differently coloured plastic baubles, each containing 50ml of Pickering’s Gin (RRP: £30.00).


– Master craftsmen at Thomas Fattorini commissioned to create a replica cockerel which has been missing from Paul Barrière cup since 1968

– Trophy was famously stolen in 1970, and found in 1990

– A new addition – a GPS device – will allow the cup to be tracked at all times by security and fans alike

For Immediate release

November 9th

It’s a sporting mystery that dates back decades – but 48 years after it was famously stolen, the Rugby League World Cup trophy has at last been returned to its full former glory.

Today, at the Rugby League International Federation Annual Congress, the final missing piece from the Paul Barrière cup has been unveiled – a cockerel that originally adorned the top of it. The location of the cockerel has been a mystery since it was last seen before the 1968 Rugby League World Cup, which took place in Australia and New Zealand.

The original trophy was commissioned by French Fédération Française de Rugby à XIII president Paul Barrière to be used at the inaugural Rugby League World Cup in 1954. It was used in four tournaments, before being stolen whilst on display at a Bradford hotel during the competition in 1970.

The trophy was found in 1990 by Bradford resident Stephen Uttley and his wife Elizabeth in a ditch near a rugby club in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

Ahead of the next Rugby League World Cup which will take place in England in 2021, the tournament organisers have commissioned the master craftsmen at the Royal Warrant holding Thomas Fattorini to recreate the cockerel. Fattorini is a 191-year-old family run business who also designed and created the Rugby League Challenge Cup and the FA Cup. A member of the Fattorini family was actually part of the breakaway from Rugby Union in the late 1800’s, which resulted in the birth of Rugby League.

Originally produced at a cost of eight million francs, the 2ft 6in high Paul Barrière cup, which weighs 25kg, now looks exactly as it would have at the first Rugby League World Cup in 1954. However, one key difference ahead of 2021, which aims to be the most digitally connected Rugby League World Cup ever, is the addition of a GPS tracker. This will allow its movements to be tracked at all times and will also enable fans to follow the trophy’s progress around the world via

The new cockerel was revealed today by award winning grand illusionist Sean Alexander. A video can be downloaded here of the unveil.

Jon Dutton, Chief Executive of RLWC 2021, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have worked with the team at Fattorini to return the Paul Barrière Cup to its full former glory incorporating the original design. As a Rugby League fan this is a very proud moment that we want people to share in and enjoy.

“However, we’re not taking any chances with the Cup and our new cockerel this time. We’ve incorporated a GPS tracker – a device they obviously didn’t have available to them in the 70s. We may never know where the World Cup went during its two missing decades, but we will always know where it is going forward. Fans can too, by keeping a close eye on the tracking website – we shall be avoiding ditches at the side of the road!”

Professor Tony Collins, a sports and social historian and author specialising in Rugby League, added: “It’s been wonderful to see the Rugby League World Cup trophy unveiled today, as it was originally imagined. The story of the loss of the trophy back in 1970 is one I’ve told for many years so having this new cockerel fitted is the perfect ending. Perhaps seeing the new cockerel will prompt someone to realise they unknowingly have the original on their mantelpiece, and one of the greatest sporting mysteries of all time will finally be solved!”

Sharks stars meet 94-year-old Manchester war hero, George

Ahead of the 100-year anniversary of the end of WWI, AJ MacGinty, and Curtis Langdon visited Broughton House in Salford to sit down with George, who fought for his country in WWII

The link-up was part of the ground-breaking Sharks Forces programme being delivered by the club’s Community Trust to support veterans or ex-forces personnel in the North West

Two first-team stars from Sale Sharks spent an afternoon with some of Manchester’s military veterans – including a 94-year old WWII hero – as part of a ground-breaking community programme supporting ex-forces personnel across the region.

Fly-half AJ MacGinty and hooker Curtis Langdon visited Broughton House – a nursing home for elderly military veterans in Salford, after the club’s Community Trust established a new link-up with the charity.

Through its Sharks Forces programme, the Trust invited eight veterans living at Broughton House along to watch Sale take on Saracens at the AJ Bell Stadium last weekend.

That group included 94-year-old George Simms – a former Royal Marine who was born in Gorton and fought in WWII, surviving the D-Day battle despite being wounded twice, and later being awarded the French Legion of Honour for his actions on Sword Beach – the highest gallantry award to be issued.

At the Sale game, George met MacGinty and Langdon for the first time and made them promise to come and visit him at Broughton House soon after.

And the players kept their word as they dropped in to see George along with Trust coach Craig Monaghan, who leads the Sharks Forces programme and is a military veteran himself, having served in Afghanistan.

Craig said: “The lads really enjoyed spending time with some of the veterans at Broughton House and especially meeting up with George again.

“He’s got a brilliant personality with some amazing stories to tell, and he made a big impression on me and the players when he came to the Saracens game.

“Curtis Langdon’s dad was also a Royal Marine, so I know he found it fascinating to listen to George and hear more about what life in the forces is like.

“With the work we’re doing as part of Sharks Forces in partnership with the Royal British Legion, this link-up felt like a natural extension of the programme and it’s been fantastic to meet someone like George already.”

Rhys Edwards, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Broughton House, said: “Building a relationship with a club as prestigious as Sale Sharks is huge for us here at Broughton House, and our residents are really excited to see what the partnership will bring!

“Attending games and meeting players means the world to our residents, which is evident from the photos taken both at the game and here at Broughton House.

“We’re at an important time in our 102-year history, as we begin our £14m redevelopment to become the North West’s first Veteran Care Village, and we look forward to the club joining us on this journey.”

As part of the new link-up between Sale Sharks Community Trust and Broughton House, Craig has committed to someone visiting the care home once a week through the Sharks Forces programme, and Sale Sharks will also host an event for the home’s military veterans once a month.

Sharks Forces was established almost two years ago in association with the Royal British Legion and has been helping military veterans build confidence and skills to help them return to normal civilian life, as well as helping many to find employment.

“Sharks Forces has been growing and growing and we’re helping more people all the time, but it isn’t just about helping veterans or ex-forces personnel who have difficulty transitioning back to civilian life or encounter problems later down the line,” added Craig.

“It’s a project designed to build a military community and support network for veterans, which is why working with Broughton House is fantastic for the programme.

“I’m really proud that we’ve managed to build this relationship already, especially at this time of year as November is always a tough month for military veterans.

“It’s even more so this year as we mark 100-years since the end of WWI, but I’m hoping we can continue to expand the reach of the programme and help even more people in the future.”

On Remembrance Sunday, HMS Belfast was open for free to Service Personnel and Veterans who showed ID. 

To mark 100 years since the end of conflict in WW1, IWM shop has launched its special, commemorative collection featuring the exact ceramic poppies that were made famous from the installation at the Tower of London, ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper. IWM shop’s official Remembrance range has been produced in partnership with the artist Paul Cummins MBE, Halycon Gallery, Historic Royal Palaces, 14-18 NOW and Imperial War Museums.
