FROM SPACESHIPS TO CASTLES
MANY of us may
have dreamt of living in a spaceship when we were younger, but never
realised this dream when reaching the heady heights of adulthood.
However, Real Estate TV has found some of the few that have done so
and consequently will be launching their new TV series
‘World’s Most Extreme Homes’ which will be aired for the
first time in the UK on Real Estate TV.
The series will allow viewers to take a look into some of the most
outrageous and extraordinary homes from around the world and see how
the owners live their everyday lives in the unconventional living
spaces that they call ‘home’.
Viewers will be able to take a look inside properties ranging from
the weird to the sublime including houses built to resemble: a
spaceship, a prehistoric creature, a property built around a massive
tree, a marine biologist who suspended his house over a pond, are to
name, but a few.
Mark Dodd, Managing Director of Real Estate TV comments:- “The
saying ‘it takes all sorts’ can indeed be used to describe this
programme. It is a great insight into how people live their lives in
what they call their homes from all around the world. If you feel
like some inspiration or indeed a bit of light relief then you
should definitely tune in to watch this series.”

Letters To Editor:- "Formby
"PLEASE can you
settle an argument for me. Did Formby, once have an Ice Rink, if yes
between what years was it used.?" Les
Editors Reply... "Yes it did. The building still exists. It
has sited in the Spar Shop on the junction of (B5424) Ryeground
Lane, Green Lane and Piercefield Rd. (across the road from the Gapes
Pub). It closed due to it failing to attract enough visitors to keep
it open. Talk did crop up about around 1999 - 2000 about rebuilding
it, but nothing ever came about. Will try getting the dates for you.
Hope that helps!"

novel way to find new talent. We also wanted to have a bit of fun to

raising money for a very deserving cause."

for its continued support in helping us to push on in our goals to
