Shuropody, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, claims to be the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS. Comments Foot-care brand Shuropody has raised 3m from the Business Growth Fund, the 2.5bn investment firm owned by Britains biggest banks. Founded by entrepreneur Frank Duffy in 2007, the Coventry-based company is aiming to double its annual sales to 30m over the next three years. Mr Duffy said the business, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, is the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS. Following the purchase of 43 Scholl stores from Alliance Boots in July 2008, the company has expanded to 63 stores and concessions. However, Mr Duffy said Shuropodys latest expansion will be focused on concessions in garden centres and clinics located close to out-of-town supermarkets because of high rent and business rates on the high street.

Ingrown Toenails – Chiropodist-Podiatrist in Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, ON
Uploaded on Dec 23, 2011 Ingrown Toenails – Chiropodist-Podiatrist in Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, ON Chiropodist Bill Dedes discusses the symptoms, causes and treatment for ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, are usually caused by trimming toenails too short, particularly on the sides of the big toes. They may also be caused by shoe pressure (from shoes that are too tight or short), injury, fungus infection, heredity, or poor foot structure. Ingrown toenails occur when the corners or sides of the toenail dig into the skin, often causing infection. A common ailment, ingrown toenails can be painful. Ingrown toenails start out hard, swollen, and tender. Left untreated, they may become sore, red, and infected and the skin may start to grow over the ingrown toenail. In most cases, treating ingrown toenails is simple: soak the foot in warm, soapy water several times each day. Avoid wearing tight shoes http://bayviewwellness.com/ or socks.

Chiropodist urges council to save trees if school gets ‘nod’
Researchers at Highgate Cemetery claim to have uncovered the grave of Abraham Lincolns chiropodist. Dr Issachar Zacharie was said to be the most favoured family visitor at the White House, valued by the former president not only for his skills but also as a sounding board for the opinions of the Jewish community in America. The discovery was made as researchers drew up a new map for visitors plotting the last resting places of the likes of Karl Marx, TV presenter Jeremy Beadle and author Douglas Adams. Dr Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Highgate Cemetery, said: Zacharies connection with Lincoln is fascinating, and especially topical just now. Were always keen to celebrate the exceptional achievements of people buried here at Highgate Cemetery. People know us for Karl Marx, but this is a place to reflect on all those who have gone before us, famous or not. Dr Zacharie died while living at an address in Mayfair and was credited as being founder of the Masonic Order of the Secret Monitor. He is buried in the East Cemetery near a piano memorial, commemorating classical pianist William Thornton. The map has been produced to coincide with the introduction of new entree prices for visitors from tomorrow (March 1). Dr Dungavell added: We dont expect to see Daniel Day-Lewis round here, but you never know.

Search: Chiropodist urges council to save trees if school gets nod 12:48pm Tuesday 23rd April 2013 in News CONCERN Trees outside the old Clarence Street YMCA BLACKBURN chiropodist Christopher Hunt has called on the borough council to protect the avenue of trees lining Clarence Street if it approves the bid to build the new Tauheedul Islam Boys School on the site of the former YMCA building at Edinburgh House. He had written to councillors supporting the application for the new educational institution. Mr Hunt, whose runs a chiropodists and podiatrists in Wellington Street, said the empty YMCA building is an eyesore in its present state but is concerned that the trees lining Clarence Street are left intact as they are historic and on a preservation order. His letter was considered by Blackburn with Darwen council planning committee as it noted a petition signed by 499 supporters of the school proposal last week. It follows the councillors receiving four similar documents, with 88 signatures, opposing the scheme. Tauheedul wants to open the new school in September next year. Plans for purpose-built premises were submitted in February. If approved later this year, they will allow the demolition of the former YMCA building so work can start on the new education complex. Bosses at Tauheedul hope that the existing boys school, which opened last year, will move from its current buildings, in Robinson Street, Little Harwood, in September 2014.
