On Saturday 22nd February 2014, 5 fencers from Salle Hadalin (Stevenage) Fencing Club took part in the Hertfordshire County junior fencing championships. Over 70 fencers competed in the foil events from 10 clubs around the county. The competitors from Salle Hadalin finished the competition with a fantastic result of two gold medals, two silver medals and a 7th place.
Helga Hadalin winning the girls under 10 category and Dylan Daniel winning the boys under 12 tournament. Henriette Hadalin came second in the girls under 12 and Gemma Caruana came second in the girls under 14. Tom Jack managed a creditable 7th place in the boys under 12 category, which had the largest number of entries (20 fencers).
This success has been aided by the sponsorship that we have received from The Lamp Company Ltd and the Stevenage Sports Partnership which has allowed us to purchase equipment for the club, allowing both novices and experienced fencers to train twice a week.
The Salle Hadalin club train every Tuesday night at Nobel School in Mobbsbury way Stevenage, under the watchful eye of head coach Gabor Hadalin and assistant coach Simon Caruana. There is also a mixed fencing session from 10am-12pm every Saturday at Nobel. Contact Gabor or Simon for details on 07867654199 or email@example.com.

A European wide survey of consumer light bulb purchasing habits has shed new light on the priorities of British shoppers. The study found 88 per cent of UK households now buy energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs, and of these 87 per cent do so in order to save energy and money.
After examining consumer habits of 5,000 people across 12 European nations, the report concluded Italy is the leading European consumer of CFL, with 96 per cent of consumers always or often purchasing energy saving bulbs. Britain came in a respectable fifth, far above the 78 per cent average.
However, Britain fell behind its European counterparts when it came to LED purchases. One third of UK households always or often buy LED and of these 70 per cent do because of cost and energy savings. Furthermore, great disparity can be seen across Europe; on the one hand Sweden lead the way with an impressive score of 46 per cent but Latvia lag behind with only 3 per cent of customers purchasing LED.
Figures from the Energy Saving Trust reveal the UK could save up to £1.4 billion on electricity a year if households switch from traditional incandescents and halogen bulbs to low energy CFLs and LEDs. This equates to around a £50 energy saving per household a year. If this figure could be achieved, it would mean savings of 4.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, enough to fill Wembley over 550 times. (Based on an average 2012/13 electricity tariff of 15.32 p/kWh and emissions factor of 0.517 kgCO2/kWh).
The report findings are being put to good use by the PremiumLight Project, a European wide initiative to test the quality of energy saving lighting technologies in order to help and assist consumers. Buying branded lighting products is one way to guarantee energy saving results by avoiding early failures and poor lumen performance. CFLs and LEDs manufactured by leading brands such as Philips, GE, Osram, Sylvania, Bell and Megaman are stocked and supplied by The Lamp Company.
Certification Manager at the Energy Saving Trust, Tom Lock, was encouraged by the findings. He believes they show “that the majority of the UK public are realising the energy and cost saving benefits of energy saving light bulbs and buying them for their home.
There are clear benefits with each UK household having the potential to save up to £50 a year on their energy bills through upgrading all their home lighting to either LED or CFL energy saving light bulbs.
The most important thing is that consumers are given clear and accurate information about the quality of energy saving light bulbs and that the cost and energy saving benefits are fully realised.
Through PremiumLight we will be working with industry to ensure that consumers are informed about the quality and different types of energy saving light bulbs so they can make informed purchasing decisions.”
Peter Hunt, Chief Operating Officer at the Lighting Industry Association, says:
“It’s clear that the UK public is realising the benefits of energy saving bulbs but confusion still remains regarding the variety of technologies on offer to them.
The PremiumLight project marks a major step in helping people understand which versions are the right energy saving light bulbs for each application in the home.”
