Electric Powered adjustable relaxer bed in need of a home

Dear all, I have an adjustable relaxer bed available in need of a good home.

It is electric powered and hand made. It is 3 ft 6 inches wide.

The mattress is made up of 4 or 5 layers of foam including memory foam covered with a zipped cover. The mattress itself has 2 stains.

The bed is about 12 months old but was only used for 4 weeks before needing to be replaced with a full specification hospital bed. Please note the bed does not raise up and down to adjust the height from the floor.

The bed and mattress is located in Rayleigh and will need picking up if wanted. It will need to be picked up by the end of next week 28th April.

Please let me know at if interested.

Pinney Talfourd’s next free wills events – 7th/8th April

Join us on one of our free Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney events on 7th and 8th April to find out if your affairs are in order. 

Over half of the population in the United Kingdom do not have a Will and this, unfortunately, can lead to difficulties upon death. Your assets may not pass to whom you want to inherit, leaving your loved ones in financial difficulties. It also can be time-consuming and expensive to resolve. In order to ensure your affairs are in order, we recommend that you prepare a Will.

According to research, over 850,000 people in the United Kingdom have Dementia; this figure has been estimated to rise to 1 million in 2025. Dementia can lead to your loved one being unable to make their own decisions regarding their financial affairs. By setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney now, you are able to nominate a person (your Attorney) to make decisions on your behalf in the future if you become unable to.

Ensure that your affairs are in order to minimise stress for your family before and after your death. Join one of our free events to hear a short presentation about the different types of Will and LPA, and get some free tailored advice from one of our solicitors over a coffee afterwards.

Choice of two dates:      Friday 7th April or Saturday 8th April

Time (each event):          11am – 12.30pm

Venue (each event):       Pinney Talfourd LLP Solicitors, 54 Station Road, Upminster, Essex, RM14 2TU

For more information and to book your free place please contact Kayleigh O’Donnell on 01708 229444 or complete the form to the right.

(Please note – the seminars will be taking place in our boardroom, located up one flight of stairs)

Havering Over 50s Forum Website Problems

Hi, unfortunately our website had some problems today and I’ve had to go back to the end of 2016. This means that the last couple of months posts on the blog have disappeared. I don’t intend to redo them all as everyone should have a copy of the email with them on.

The calendar is now out of date and I will try and fix that over the next couple of days.

This just then means that the main missing parts are the photos. This may have to wait for a couple of weeks to recover and there may be a few missing links.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Christmas at the Queens Theatre’ brings the community together and raises over £2,000.

Pinney Talfourd once again teamed up with Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch in early December to host ‘Christmas at the Queen’s’ – a lively free sing along event for the whole community.

Our fantastic local choir Dawn Chorus joined us to lead the crowd for a series of upbeat Christmas songs including “Sleigh Ride” and “Merry Christmas Everyone” before enjoying tea and mince pies with the Mayor of Havering Cllr Philippa Crowder.

This was a free event but the charity raffle and generous donations raised £2,061 in aid of the Queens Theatre charitable trust and Pinney Talfourd’s own charity of the year ‘MNDA (South Essex branch)’. Local businesses rallied to support the event by donating some fabulous prizes from champagne, restaurant vouchers and even a teeth whitening treatment! Funds raised are divided equally between the two charities.

This event has attracted a full house every year and this year was no different. Local businesses, Councillors and members of the local community checked in for this festive celebration. Many clients with transport difficulties were taken as guests by Pinny Talfourd, ensuring that Christmas is not a lonely time after all.

Teas, coffees and cakes were on offer courtesy of Pinney Talfourd after the event to refresh those vocal chords, providing an opportunity to meet new faces and make new friends. Thank you to the Queens Theatre Club volunteers who helped to serve refreshments.

If you would like to find out more about the Queens Theatre Club or enquire about any performances please contact the Box Office on 01708 443333. If you would like to find out more about this event or Pinney Talfourd’s services please contact 01708 229444.

Finally, everybody at Pinney Talfourd would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
