All three are associated with top flight sport and a have a strong affiliation with the South West.“We look forward to a successful partnership through the stadium rebuild over the next two years and beyond. Obviously it is going to be a period of great change and will be exciting to work with Heineken, Butcombe and Thatchers to ensure our fans get the best possible match day experience.”Bruce Welman, Regional Sales Director (SW), Heineken in the UK, said “The new agreement will provide an excellent showcase for our portfolio of market leading long alcoholic drink brands and we are looking forward to working with Bristol Sport to ensure that our products add to the experience and enjoyment of visitors to the Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol.“With a massive development plan already in place plus both Bristol Rugby and Bristol City playing at the stadium this year it is certainly exciting times ahead.

It is great that we can add Ashton Gate to that and bring our brands to both rugby and football fans”.Martin Thatcher, managing director of Thatchers Cider Company commented “The city’s rugby and football clubs are part of Bristol’s great traditions.

So it’s fitting that we are able to form this partnership with Bristol Sport which values its own heritage as much as we do ours. Wouldn’t it be nice to think that the early Bristol players celebrated their wins with a pint of Thatchers!”last_img read more

first_imgThe authorities said that of the 12 cases associated with the American Airlines (AA) flight 945, which brought 155 persons to the island on July 11, only one person was not a passenger on the flight. “The Chief Medical officer has sent me already, she had discussed with me, and she is saying all the passengers must arrive with a negative COVID PCR test result,” Gonsalves said, adding “they must arrive with proof of reservation in an approved hotel by the Ministry of Health for five nights”. Another AA flight, also from Miami, arrived last Saturday, and health officials said that four cases of COVID-19 were detected among the passengers. “Well you have the 25th to make sure you have your booking because you can’t be sure that we will not suspend the flight for the first weekend in August, the first Saturday. Because persons have not been paying attention. I just want to make this point with crystal clarity… “What has happened is this: in the United States of America and particularly in Florida and other places, there is a big flare up (of COVID-19) and we tightened the protocols on the second flight and we are tightening the protocols on the third flight. “The importance of strict compliance to all isolation and quarantine orders is paramount because it is only by complying with these orders and the use of masks in public places that the spread of COVD-19 can be controlled in St Vincent and the Grenadines.” He said as of Saturday July 25th “the protocol is going to be strengthened so I want everybody to have real advanced notice. He told listeners that passengers will be tested for COVID-19 before they are released from the Ministry of Health-approved hotel and that their quarantine will continue for nine to 16 days in an approved home or a government approved facility after the five nights in a hotel. “When you do that, apart from the question of moral suasion becoming less and less as a tool, you still have to do it, but the law has to be enforced. And if in the United States, we are still having this increase, we will have to stop the planes coming from the United States for the time being…,” Gonsalves said, noting that Barbados had reduced its quota of four JetBlue flights to one a week. KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – The St. Vincent and the Grenadines government has hinted at the possibility of suspending flights from the United States after the island recorded 12 cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) after reopening its borders to international flights. “Because we have to look at the capacity of the epidemiological apparatus that you have, the health workers on the ground to deal with it and very much so, we have to be concerned about the health and safety of those persons who are in St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” Gonsalves said, adding that persons from the United States cannot travel to Canada.center_img On Sunday night, there were 21 active cases of the respiratory illness in the country, including two cases, the origins of which health officials were unsure about and were investigating. Gonsalves said that the Ministry of Health and his government are “privileging persons who are our citizens who want to come home, who have been out there for a long time”, adding that only a few non-nationals arrived on both the July 11 and 18 flights. “We are very much privileging our citizenship,” Gonsalves said, adding that someone had commented that he wants tourists to come to the island. “The truth is this, the tourists are not coming yet. Small numbers, but we are doing this for our nationals because I am very concerned about you being out there but you can’t come but whatever the health people tell you and they give you a document as soon as you come out, you go on a boat and you go to Bequia, you take off your mask and you start to be drinking with everybody at the bar. CMC Gonsalves said that St. Vincent and the Grenadines would continue to allow flights from Canada and that the government only agreed to allow the flight from the United States next Saturday “because people have come here and they left their jobs with the expectation that the flight will go back and others will come and will go back. “So that we have been dealing with this matter in a practical manner, in a practical way and so forth but I have always said that where we have to ramp up restrictions we will ramp them up. And if you want to get home and you can’t get home, you will have a problem because the flights are in danger of being suspended because of this unacceptable conduct. “I want to say this: if persons who are coming home do not follow these protocols, apart from we going to Parliament and putting, as an alternative, the question of the ticketing, to have you fined, then and there, for breaking the quarantine, I want to say this: if persons who return choose not to pay attention to the quarantine, you may push the government to suspending the flights from the United States of America until things improve there,” Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said on a radio programme. “I was advised, I can’t believe this, that three or four persons, males, on the flight coming down on Saturday didn’t want to wear masks. Well, if you don’t want to wear masks, don’t come on the plane.”last_img read more

first_imgTis (almost) the season of backyard barbecues, picnics and outdoor potlucks. We gather with friends, or simply migrate to the backyard picnic table for family dinner, and that has me craving the classics: grilled meats, veggies and some creamy starchy sides like macaroni salad. Today, I have the perfect solution for scratching the creamy-side-salad itch while actually getting in some seriously healthy raw veg. Win-win.Creamy Broccoli and Blue Cheese Salad stretches just a smidgen of silky-and-satisfying mayonnaise with some low-fat Greek yogurt, and the resulting salad is creamy, but not cloying. Blue cheese brings a nice sophisticated hit of flavor, and there is just enough to add complexity without being so overboard that kids won’t eat. Well, most anyway: one of my four kiddos deemed this salad “too bluecheesy” for her palate, but I claim 75 percent as a victory here. Because a little blue cheese goes a long way, you get a lot of flavor for your cheese calorie, but feel free to swap for a milder cheese like crumbled feta or even shredded sharp cheddar.The bulk of the salad, though, is brilliantly healthy raw vegetables: broccoli, thinly sliced cabbage and shredded carrots. Halved grapes add the perfect touch of sweetness that takes the salad almost to a slaw, and pairs perfectly with the tangy blue cheese, and red onion. You can spend ten minutes breaking down your own florets, chopping cabbage and grating carrots, or spend an extra dollar to buy them prepped in the produce aisle. Either way, the salad takes minutes to make, and it holds up well for a couple of days in the fridge. Which means leftovers can be brownbagged for lunch the next day no problem. And, you can feel great about having a plethora of one of the most touted health foods out there: simple raw broccoli.
