Residents in Sefton helped to uncover £37m copycat website scam Report by Tom Martin

SEFTON residents who were victims of one of the UK's largest ever online crime cases have helped jail six people for more than 35 years. On Tuesday, March 6, six people from the Hampshire, Surrey and Wrexham areas were put behind bars after being convicted of defrauding UK consumers out of more than £37million in a copycat website scam. Sefton residents played a part in uncovering the nationwide scandal, with Sefton Council's Trading Standards team documenting a number of complaints about suspicious websites offering to sell driving licences and visas. The council is now encouraging residents to be “web wise” to avoid falling victim to scams. The criminal gang operated a number of fake web pages, impersonating official government

The fake websites offered to sell driving licences and visas.

services in order to sell passports, driving licences and other key documents for vastly inflated prices. Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council's cabinet member for regulation said: “Online fraud can happen to anybody, especially if you're not 'web wise' and our Trading Standards often receive complaints about bogus websites. “Genuine websites that ask for personal information show an image of a padlock, usually in the address bar alongside the website address at the top of the page. “However, some fake websites display a padlock on the webpage itself to try and convince the user that it is a secure site. “If you're not sure whether a site is genuine, click on the padlock and check the security certificate, which tells you if the site is authentic. “Only valid certificates issued by approved authorities are trustworthy. If you see or find anything suspicious, please report any concerns using the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 04 05 06.”

Health hub for Anfield gets the go-ahead From page 1 It is part of a £30million plan to open three of the facilities across the city, with the two others being in Speke and the third location is yet to be announced. They will be flexible step-up, step-down facilities, meaning they can be used to support people with “lower level needs” who would otherwise end up in hospital, as well as providing intermediate care to help get people out of hospital quicker. They will have en-suite bedrooms, areas for therapy and socialising, dining facilities and gardens. The investment in the hubs is part of a commitment by the council to meet the rising demand for dementia care services, as well as increased need for quality respite facilities for carers by 2020. The council is borrowing the money to build the centres with the repayments covered by income from the leases on each site. Cabinet member for adult social care and health, Cllr Paul Brant, said: “We have invested heavily in creating new social care hubs across the city in recent years, but more people are living longer and we need to make sure we have sufficient capacity in the social care system to meet the needs of people with dementia and other long-

term care needs. This is against a backdrop of rising demand, massive cuts to our budget from central government – £444 million between 2010 and 2020 – and increasing pressure on the NHS. “The facilities we are creating will help ease pressure on other, areas of the NHS which are under constant strain such as hospitals where beds are far more costly. Importantly, they will save the public purse money by ensuring that people aren’t tying up more expensive hospital beds. “We have been careful to make sure that they are flexible facilities that can meet surges in demand and help to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and delays in ward discharges.” Commitment Shaw healthcare was selected as the preferred provider for the dementia hubs project last year following a competitive tender process that also involved the employee-owned company signing up to the Liverpool Social Value Charter. Over the duration of the contract, Shaw healthcare will develop skills and training programmes in conjunction with local colleges, work with Job Centre Plus to offer local employment opportunities,

Purple flag award for city LIVERPOOL’S night-time economy has been awarded the prestigious Purple Flag status once again – for an eighth successive year. Purple Flag is a town and city centre award, similar to the Blue Flag for beaches, which aims to raise the standard and broaden the appeal of a night out. Places awarded the status are recognised for providing a vibrant mix of entertainment while promoting the safety and wellbeing of visitors and local residents. City Council officials say Liverpool, which first gained the Purple Flag in 2010, demonstrated again that it has a safe and well-managed nighttime economy. A team of assessors spent a night in the city centre in December checking out aspects of the city ’s night time offer including bars, restaurants, shops, car parks, theatres, signage and public transport. Councillor Liz Parsons, Mayoral Lead for Community Safety, said: “This is great news and sends out a strong message that we have a safe and vibrant city centre, catering for hundreds of thousands of people every week. “There is a huge amount of hard work going in every single day from public agencies and private businesses to make sure people who choose to spend their hard earned money coming to Liverpool have the best possible time while they are here. “The transformation of the city centre over the last few years is absolutely stunning - lots of organisations as well as businesses are working together to achieve this and our night-time economy is going from strength to strength.”

create work placements and apprenticeships across all facilities and deliver on a commitment to the procurement of goods and services through local companies. Suzanne Hughes, deputy CEO of Shaw healthcare, said: “The visualisations are fantastic and really bring the project to life. The ergonomic considerations factored into the architecture means that those who use the service are in the ideal environment to receive the best person-centred care possible. “We are looking forward to delivering high quality care to the people of Liverpool that supports our values of wellness, happiness and kindness.” Planning consent is being secured for the three facilities, each designed by Kier Architects to a future-proofed, dementia-friendly specification. Construction will be undertaken by Willmott Dixon Construction as part of the Scape National Framework. Post construction, the council will enter into a 25-year lease agreement with Shaw healthcare to manage the care services provided at each location.

‘We’re delighted to be recognised for our contribution to the life of the community ’ award and I hope the young people that have been shortlisted recognise their achievements and I wish them all the best at the finals in April.” Joe Mangan, headteacher of Alsop High School, also said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for our contribution to the life of the community. “Alsop has worked hard to

build stronger links with parents and residents in both the immediate and wider North Liverpool community. “As the school approaches it’s centenary in 2019, our core aim is to impact upon the wider community and contribute to the regeneration of North Liverpool.” High Sherriff Stephen Burrows, added: “It was a great event that recognised all those that had put forward their ideas. “I’m pleased that Alsop have been selected as finalists. They represent so many young people contributing positively to their communities and thoroughly deserve to be shortlisted for the Crimebeat Award 2018.”

A YOUNG Irish dancer from Walton is hoping to put recent health scares behind her as she competes in an international competition. Siobhan Doolin, 18, will travel to Glasgow at the end of this month to take part in the World Irish Dancing Championships 2018. More than 14,500 dancers and supporters are expected to travel to the Scottish city for the championships, which has been held annually for the last 40 years. But Siobhan, who is a member of Loughran School of Irish Dance, is lucky to be taking part, after she was diagnosed with a heart condition

which means taking part in physical activity can be difficult. However, she is fighting fit and is one of only seven Irish dancers from the North West who will take on others from around the world. Her proud mum, Leeann, said: “Siobhan has been in and out of hospital fighting an infection which uncovered a problem with her heart. She was recently diagnosed with a heart condition in which she has been fitted with a pacemaker device to explore why she has a dilated right ventricle and enlarged heart. “She experiences chest pain becomes pale and experiences extreme tiredness but other than that is fighting and not letting this take over her life. “She continues to fight and follow her dreams. She is an inspiration to other young people that despite what obstacles are put our way you can achieve your dreams.”

MP BILL Esterson has renewed his call for plans to build a new road through Rimrose Valley Park to be scrapped after Sefton Council was told by the goverment to take measures to reduced air pollution in the borough. The Champion reported last week how officials from Highways England were set to carry out initial drilling work for the project despite the council taking the decision to build a road to judicial review. The local authority believes a consultation carried out by Highways England was “inadequate” because it didn’t list a tunnel as an option for improving links between Switch Island and the Port of Liverpool. MP Esterson recently asked the Transport Secretary Chris Grayling in the Commons what the government was doing to invest in rail services to take freight off the roads. He said: “The government say they want to reduce roadside emissions yet announce that a road is being built through the Rimrose Valley. “This area already has some of the highest levels of emissions, levels that are accepted to be dangerous and which a court ruled recently that the government had not done enough to address. “The government should improve rail infrastructure as an answer to this problem. “I don’t want a road built through Rimrose Valley when alternatives have not been properly considered.” The Champion reported earlier this month how levels of nitrogen and sulphur dioxide, which are both harmful pollutants, are up to four times higher than initially believed by experts in the area around Port of Liverpool.

MP Esterson at Rimrose Valley Country Park

The National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory told the government it was “a significant cause of concern for the health of local populations.” It added that regulations on shipping pollution are insufficient – and that “sulphur dioxide from their engines are not controlled to anywhere near the same extent as road vehicles.” MP Esterson recently wrote to the Environment Minister Therese Coffey to challenge the government’s response to the recent High Court judgement on tackling levels of roadside nitrogen dioxide. The Court ruled that the government’s plan for reducing NO2 in Sefton was inadequate and that excessive levels of NO2 in the borough were unacceptable.

Carragher apologises Alfie’s gesture rewarded by two after spitting at driver Reds players Report by Tom Martin

Report by Tom Martin A YOUNG Liverpool fan who donated his pocket money to North Liverpool Foodbank has been rewarded by two Reds stars. Alfie Radford, aged seven, was at Anfield stadium for his beloved side's Champions League match against Porto on Tuesday, March 6 when he saw volunteers asking for donations. He went up to them and offered to give his pocket money for the cause, and a picture of him and dad Tom was posted on social media by the volunteers which went viral. It caught the attention of Liverpool player Andy Robertson, who penned a personal letter to Alfie to thank him for his generosity. Not only that, but the Scottish defender also sent Alfie a signed shirt of striker Roberto Firmino – saying that no one really wants a left-back's shirt! In the letter, Robertson wrote: “Dear Alfie, it's Andy Robertson here from Liverpool. “I saw on Twitter that you did something very special for the foodbanks at Anfield last night. I remember from being your age just how important pocket money is and how there's hundreds of things you could have bought for yourself with it. “For you to give that up for people who are having a tough time and need some help to get by is absolutely amazing. “Let me tell you now that is brilliant from you and sets an example to the rest of us that showing a little care and thought for others is really important - it's also very Liverpool! “Foodbanks is a cause close to my own heart and what you've done will stay with me for a long time.

Alfie with his Firmino shirt

“Anyway - the point of this letter. You've done something amazing for other people and expected nothing in return for it. Because of that I want to make sure it is rewarded. “I've got one of Roberto Firmino's match shirts from this season and asked him to sign it for you by way of a thank you for what you did for the foodbanks. Let's be honest Alfie - no one wants the leftback's shirt - which is why I got Bobby's instead. Hope that's okay. “I'll make sure all the lads hear about what you've done. You've done LFC proud - your family will be made up with you I'm sure. All the best wee man.”

Parents appeal for information 15 years after son’s murder Report by Tom Martin IT’S been 15 years since a Walton man was murdered on a night out in Liverpool, but his parents and police are refusing to give up on catching his killer. 18-year-old Andrew Jones was killed in the city centre on Sunday, March 9 2003 when he was confronted by a gang on Hanover Street at around 3.30am and then punched, fatally cracking his head on the pavement. His parents, Christine and Andrew, have been campaigning for justice ever since and together with Merseyside Police, are using the 15th anniversary of his death to appeal for information. Police are offering a £10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person, or persons, responsible for Andrew’s death. Detective Superintendent Dave Brunskill, the senior investigating officer in the case, said: “Since Andrew's death his devoted parents, Christine and Andrew, have been heavily involved in cam-

paigning to get justice for their son. “They have been through an awful ordeal and understandably are still suffering from this tragic loss. They have many questions that remain unanswered and for them, until those responsible have been put behind bars, they cannot rest. “Someone knows what happened that night and knows who is responsible for this terrible crime. We are appealing to anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward and allow Andrew’s family to find peace.” Parents Andy and Christine believe the gang know who killed Andrew and have been

covering each other’s backs for the last 15 years. One suspect who was charged with manslaughter walked free due to a lack of evidence – but a Liverpool coroner publicly criticised the group by saying “one of them is a killer.” Andy and Christine have campaigned in previous years to introduce ‘Andrew's Law’ which would allow the police to charge in cases where a group of people were standing together watching a serious assault. Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on @MerPolCC, detectives from the Matrix Serious Organised Crime team on 0800 230 0600, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

JAMIE Carragher has been suspended from his punditry role with Sky Sports after a video emerged of him spitting at a Manchester United fan. Mobile phone footage shows the former Liverpool player lean out the window of his Range Rover and spit towards a 14-year-old girl and her dad, who were in their own vehicle driving alongside him on a motorway. A few seconds earlier, the dad could be heard in the clip shouting out the window “2-1 Jamie” and laughing in reference to Manchester United’s victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford that same day. It is believed that Bootle-born Carragher, was travelling back from Manchester where he had been a pundit for Sky Sports’ coverage of the match on Saturday, March 10. In an interview on Sky News on Monday, Carragher said: “You can’t condone that behaviour no matter what, in any way shape or form no matter who you are. “I've let Sky Sports down and my family and the most important people are the family involved. “It was a moment of madness that’s difficult for me to explain. “It feels like an out of body thing, just four or five seconds of madness. “No matter what the circumstances you can't behave like that. “It’s the only time I've ever reacted like that again I have no excuses, it's devastating for the family involved and my own family. “I called the family, they were upset and disappointed. I spoke to the 14-year-old girl, that’s my biggest regret, that she’s been caught in the middle of my altercation with the father/. “This devastates me more than anything else, that this girl has become embroiled in this and that’s what I regret. “I have a daughter the same age and if someone did that it’s difficult for me to find the words to describe how I’d feel if I bumped into them. I can’t go back (in time), hopefully they accept my apology.” On Monday, March 12, Carragher was summoned to London for talks with Sky Sports and he was suspended from his role as a pundit and co-commentator. He was due to appear on

Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football but was replaced on the show. The 40-year-old was also removed as a pundit on a Danish TV show TV3 Sport, after he was scheduled to appear to offer analysis of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday, March 13. Since the spitting clip emerged, many Liverpool fans and social media users condemned Carragher’s actions, with others also criticising the dad for driving dangerously by recording the incident on his phone. Fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville came out in support of Carragher, describing it as a “big mistake”, but adding that it was an isolated incident and he hoped to carry on working with him. Carragher has previously been scathing about footballers who spit at each other on the pitch, labelling it “disgusting and vile” in a newspaper column two years ago.

Thanks for the laughter - how Champion readers shared their fond memories of Sir Ken Dodd TRIBUTES have been paid across the nation to legendary comedian Sir Ken Dodd who has died at the age of 90 - and people in south Sefton have particularly fond memories of ‘Doddy.’ He died on Sunday only a matter of days after returning to his Knotty Ash home in Liverpool from hospital, where he had been treated during the last six weeks for a chest infection. He had made his professional debut in Nottingham in 1954. In the following decades he became a regular on the stage, TV and radio. His shows were famous for lasting more than five hours, although he always maintained that “he was giving value for money.” He had also survived setbacks and in 1989 the comedian was charged with tax evasion, but was acquitted. In recent years he had turned on Southport’s Christmas lights and gave his last performance at Southport theatre at the end of last year. After the legendary entertainer was presented with his knighthood last year, Maghull lolliop man and radio presenter Dave Hughes shared his memories of seeing ‘Doddy ’ and the Beatles appear on stage together at the Albany Cinema in Maghull in 1961 at a charity event. He appealed for readers to get in touch and share any magical moments they remember of meeting Doddy and many readers responded to share their fond memories of him. Netherton reader Ilsa Ellis shared her memories

pital staff a show in their lunchtime. She said that it was a great success and she had been a fan of his ever since. Lisa Chu, general manager at Southport Theatre said: “The team at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre are truly saddened by the news of Sir Ken’s death over the weekend. “He and his wife Anne were great friends of the venue with relationships built over many years when he performed at least twice a year in the Southport Theatre. “We are proud to have been one of Ken’s favourite venues and we feel privileged to have known both him and Anne personally over the years. “Not only was Sir Ken a true comedy genius who literally made hundreds of thousands of guests laugh, sing and leave every show with a spring in their step, he was genuinely a lovely caring person, a true professional and a great deal of fun to be around. “He was loved by everyone who had the pleasure to meet him and his dedicated wife Anne who was always at his side. “The world has lost a true legend but his legacy will go on. “It’s impossible for anybody who has touched as many people’s hearts as Ken Dodd, for him ever to be forgotten. “Our thoughts, prayers and love go out to Anne and her family who we know will take comfort in the fact that Ken lived a full life and has had such a great positive impact on so many people over the years.”

of meeting – and being frightened by him! - in Liverpool when she was only 15 years old! She was working as a trainee bridal assistant at ladies' clothing shop Nannette's in Liverpool in 1958 – her first job – when she saw Doddy, who was performing at the Liverpool Empire at the time. She glanced through the large glass back doors of Nannette's and saw Ken Dodd peering in, pulling faces and pulling his hair – and Ilsa was so frightened that she went and hid behind the counter! He came in and apologised and from then on, blew kisses and smiled when he walked past – and she became a lifelong fan! Ruth Wood-Park, from Bootle, got in touch with the Champion to share her memories of going to see Ken Dodd, three rows from the front, at The Empire in Liverpool four decades ago. She said: “I went with my daughter around 40 years ago when she was just a toddler – and she fell asleep as Ken Dodd came on stage! “It was a grand night though - no-one compares to him “At the end of the show, I bought a little ‘diddy man’ and I won’t part with it, I still have it now. “At that time, we didn’t have much money but there was no way I was going to miss going to see Doddy!” Irene Marland from Maghull said she met Ken Dodd in 1954 at Walton Hospital.

Man tried to rape a young mum in his car A CHILDREN’S care worker from Bootle tried to rape a drunken young mum after she got into his car believing it was a taxi - and then callously dumped her “like rubbish” dazed and disorientated in a deserted car park. CCTV footage showed Andrew Campbell, 48, getting into the back of his car with the victim and after he drove off six minutes later she was left lying in a car park where she lay for an hour before passers-by heard her cries. Campbell, a married man, was accused of raping the 22year-old and a jury cleared him of that offence but convicted him of attempting to rape her and he was jailed for six and a half years on Thursday, March 8. The attack happened after Campbell, a grandad, had set off for his job at a children’s respite home on September 24 last year and the woman, a mum-of-three, was on her way home after a long night out drinking heavily and taking cocaine. The last thing she remembered was leaving a flat, where she had been drinking with two men, after rebuffing one who had tried to kiss her explaining that she

was married. Her next recollection was being found at 9 am in the car park. Sarah Holt, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court that as the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was walking in Bootle when she flagged down his car thinking it was a taxi and instead of following her directions to take her home he drove her to the car park in Field Lane, Litherland and launched the sex attack. She had spoken to her husband at 7am and asked him to call a taxi for her to the post office in Hawthorne Road but there were two post offices in that road. He called her back but she sounded confused and her phone kept cutting out. He heard her say, ‘he’s just raped me’ and was crying and sounded scared. He called the police and a search began but it was just before 9am before officers, alerted by members of the public, found her. She did not then make a complaint but later that day she told them that she thought something had happened to her. An hour later a man, whose home overlooked the car park, hearing about the incid-

Andrew Campbell

ent, checked his CCTV and it showed a man reverse his car into a space in the far corner. He got out and got into the back seat and after a few minutes got out, adjusted his clothing and then went back to the back of the car before driving off at 7.53 am. The woman could then be seen curled up on the floor of the car park and she was there until 8.47 am, said Miss Holt. Campbell, a former soldier of Gardener Avenue, Bootle, was traced by police and was arrested. He said the victim repeatedly asked if he wanted to have sex, but sentencing the defendant, who has no previous convictions, Judge Clement Goldstone, QC, the

Recorder of Liverpool, said he rejected any suggestion the woman had encouraged him to have sex with her. He said: “She was heavily intoxicated and affected by cocaine and her ability to communicate was minimal. The court heard Campbell had been happily married for 24 years but for the last five years there had been no physical side to the relationship because of his wife’s ill health. “You realised within minutes a golden opportunity to satisfy your sexual urges, and you decided this helpless and hapless young woman was a temporary answer to your difficulties,” said Judge Goldstone. He said he had treated her in “an inhumane way after you had had your way with her ”. The judge accepted that he had had an exemplary discharge from the Army and had an excellent work record which made “your fall so dramatically from grace” all the more remarkable. He ordered Campbell to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life and also imposed a life-time restraining order to keep away from the woman.

Resident fined nearly £300 for dropping litter A WALTON man has been fined nearly £300 after being caught dropping litter in Sefton. Sefton Council revealed last week how four people were convicted at South Sefton Magistrates Court on Tuesday, March 6 after they were caught littering by enforcement officers. All four people, who are all from outside the borough of Sefton, were fined more than £1,100 combined. Lee Caroll, of Sefton Road, Walton was found guilty in absence and fined £297. A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “It’s a very simple message. If you drop litter you will be fined £75. However there

are people who continue to ignore these warnings and are issued with fixed penalty notices. “But if you fail to pay and your case goes to court, the fine can be considerably higher. It’s a criminal offence to litter and we will not hesitate to prosecute those who deliberately make our beautiful borough untidy. “People need to think twice before just throwing their waste away and court cases like these highlight what can happen if you are caught. Either take it home or use a bin.” For more information about litter, visit

Isaac tiptoes his way to the top! A YOUNGSTER from Waterloo is tiptoeing his way to the top after he was invited to a workshop at the Royal Ballet School in London. Isaac Morgan, who is eight years old,wants to be a professional ballet dancer and has impressed during his time at Proctor Dance Academy, in Crosby. In September last year, Isaac started with the Royal Ballet Junior Associate programme in Manchester, which nurtures young talents between the ages of eight to 17. He attends around three classes a month in Manchester alongside his Crosby commitments, but earlier this month he went to London for a La Fille Mai Gardee workshop at the Royal Ballet School. It gave him even more experience and also gave him an insight into life at a full-time ballet school. His proud mum, Gaynor, said: “Isaac thoroughly enjoyed his experience and this has given him an insight into full-time ballet school at eleven to follow his dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer.”

Dangerous driver laughed and smirked at his behaviour A COURT has heard how a young Bootle man smirked and laughed during a police interview when shown video evidence of his dangerous driving around the streets of Litherland. Brandan Griffiths, 19, of Oxford Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on March 7 where he pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and driving without a licence or insurance. Prosecutor Andrew Page said he caught the attention of police when he overtook them as they drove along Hawthorne Road, near Litherland, in an unmarked police car at 3.30pm on February 13. Subsequent checks showed that the silver Vauxhall Meriva he was driving was only registered to be driven by a female driver. Mr Page said that as he then started to drive erratically police tried to pull him over but he refused to stop, and a pursuit with lights and the emergency siren ensued. Griffiths led police around the Litherland area, including Gorsey Lane, Field Lane, where he drove ay 60mph, Hatton Hill Road, and Sefton Street. After abandoning the car he was chased and seen jumping over fences on New Market Road. He was detained shortly after, however, when trying to get over a high metal fence. During a subsequent interview, Mr Page said he initially claimed to have been given permission to drive the car by his friend’s sister though he said he

knew he probably shouldn’t have taken it. He also said that he would have been able to get away from the pursuing officers if he had had a full tank of petrol. Mr Page said he was shown the video evidence of the police pursuit, which included him driving at 37 mph in a 20 mph zone and at 55 mph in a 30 mph zone. “He kept laughing and pointing at the footage,” Mr Page said. When it was then pointed out to him that he had gone through a number of give way junctions he said he thought it was okay because he had not hit any other vehicles. “At one point he caused another vehicle to slam on the brakes and again he seemed to find it funny,” Mr Page said. The prosecutor concluded by saying: “Police described him as arrogant and smirking during the interview and he appeared to show no remorse for his actions.” After the legal advisor informed the magistrates about the aggravating features of the offence, i.e. that it involved prolonged bad driving, a disregard for others, and involving a police chase, he said it should be sent to the crown court, despite Griffiths having no previous convictions. The magistrates declined jurisdiction and bailed him to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on April 4.

Council wants your views on its economic strategy

Members of the Docklands Trail Charity, above, showing off their proposals at an exhibition held at Collingwood Dock, left, last year.

‘Container Village’ plan to showcase history of docks Report by Tom Martin

EIGHT former shipping containers will be transformed into a new ‘heritage trail visitor centre’ to showcase the history of north Liverpool and Bootle docks. The new tourist attraction, which will be opened at Collingwood Dock, will share stories and information about the long and illustrious history of the docks. The plans, submitted by the Peel Group and The Docklands Trail Charity were approved by Liverpool City Council and are part of the wider Liverpool Waters project. The Champion reported last year how the proposal is to create six ‘mini-museums’

along the dock to educate youngsters and attract tourists to south Sefton. The Docklands Trail Charity say creating the heritage centres will take several years but will become a “world-class tourist attraction.” When complete, the Docklands Trail will feature six exhibition centres, telling the story of Waterloo, Stanley, Huskisson, Canada, Gladstone and Seaforth docks. The publicly accessible containers will be managed by the charity after they worked with Peel Ports to ensure the container village is best placed at to serve visitors. Les Ellis, chair of The Docklands Trail Charity, said: “I’m delighted at the progress this project has seen, and with the approval of this planning application we can now bring the container village to life.

“Our aim is to create a first-class tourist attraction with several sites across the north Liverpool and Bootle docks which will educate children, communities and visitors on the wonderful heritage of Liverpool’s renowned port. “We would like to thank Peel for gifting the land and funding the application – without this support the project would not have been able to go ahead.” Ian Pollitt, assistant project director at Liverpool Waters, said: “It is fantastic to see the plans we’ve been working on for many years become a reality. “Much of the land at Liverpool Waters is currently disused dockland, we are keen to share its history with the public and encourage them to come on site and share its story.”

RESIDENTS can have a say on the council's draft framework for a new ‘Sefton Economic Strategy.’ A seven week consultation has just opened and Sefton Council is urging as many people as possible to get involved. Comments made from a consultation will be considered for the council’s Growth Programme, one of the four key pillars of Framework for Change, agreed by the council in January 2017. Strategic economic growth is a key part of the Sefton 2030 Vision that the council is currently developing. In 2016 when the council asked locals what mattered to them most, and thousands responded. Some of the common messages included investing in the infrastructure of the borough and regenerate town centres and high streets. It was also said that job opportunities is an important area that can support resilient people and places. A popular theme was also that Sefton has many natural assets including the coast, local heritage and open spaces and these should be used in promoting the borough to attract businesses, investors and visitors. Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council's Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “This is the first draft of the framework for a new economic strategy for Sefton and we really

want to hear from all sectors of our communities. “It sets out to identify the key economic and social challenges which should be the focus of the strategy and outlines the headline economic growth objective and the framework for action. “We recognise the importance of working in partnership with our many key partners and stakeholders from the private sector, communities, voluntary sector and local businesses. This consultation is for everyone and can help define our future. “We are now seeking views on this important document and would be grateful if everyone could spend a few minutes completing this questionnaire.” The consultation will run until April 27.

Sex offender found hiding in loft is jailed Report by Henry James A SEX offender who was found by police hiding in a loft at a house in Crosby, has been jailed. Paul Jevons, 40, of Elm Court, Skelmersdale, was wanted by officers after failing to tell police he had moved out of his address in September, in breach of his sex offender notification requirements. Jevons was traced to Crosby on January 31 and officers attempted to arrest him but he made off in a car. After colliding with another car he ran off from the scene. Following enquiries, Jevons was found hiding in the loft of a property in the Carrfield Avenue area of Crosby a day later. He was arrested and charged with dangerous driving, document offences and breaching his sex offender notification requirements. Jevons appeared before Wirral Magistrates’ Court on February 2, pleading guilty. He appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday (March 2) and was handed a 14 month jail sentence. Det Con David Perkins, of Lancashire Police’s Sex Offender Management Unit (SOMU), said: “Jevons breached his sex offender notification requirements by failing to tell officers he had left his address. “He went on the run and following a number of appeals, Jevons was traced to the Merseyside area,

House hit by blaze

Stunning image captures ferry arriving at sunset

FIREFIGHTERS were called out to tackle a house blaze in Litherland. Emergency services were sent to Four Acre Drive on Friday, March 2 at around 9.30pm to reports that a fire has started at the back door of a property. Two fire engines attended the incident and crews wearing breathing apparatus used a high pressure hose reel jet to extinguish the fire. No-one was injured in the incident.

THIS stunning image taken at Crosby beach captures the moment a ferry makes a sunset arrival in Liverpool. Local Litherland photographer, Stephen Carrigan, took the image on Sunday, February 25 as the vessel made its way past the wind turbines and towards the dock after returning from Ireland. Stephen described it as “a very cold but beautiful day on Crosby beach.”

Please use doggy bags - and don’t just leave them on the pavement!

Another relief road may be needed to link Crosby with the motorways

I would like to comment on a recent incident which leaves my wife and myself very frustrated. We consider ourselves responsible dog owners who do pick up after our dog. We were confronted recently by a very angry resident while walking our dog in Litherland I pointed out that we do pick up or pet’s mess and I showed him the bag of dog waste. He was still very frustrated and I completely sympathise with him. It is very annoying when dog owners don't pick up their bags as it tarnishes all dog walkers. But the problem these days is that some

RE: Blocking off Edgemoor Drive to reduce congestion on Moor Lane. I’ve read a few suggestions regarding reopening up Cranfield Road and Rosemoor Drive to try to alleviate traffic congestion in the Moor Lane area. By opening these roads up again you will get a massive increase in traffic going past up to four schools (St William of York, Chesterfield, Forefield and Great Crosby). These areas are busy enough in the mornings so adding commuting traffic into the mix is not an ideal solution! As a resident of Cranfield Road, one of the reasons we chose to live here is that it is not a rat run for commuting traffic. I’m sure this is a view shared by many other homeowners down our road and also those in

people don’t use doggy bags. And what is more frustrating is that there is a new trend which is even worse. People actually pick up the mess and put it in bags but then leave but then leave them on the pavement! Are these people stupid or trying to make a point i.e because there are not many bins around anymore? Either way doing this sort of thing is no way to make a point. What is their problem?

Litherland resident, By email

PICTURE of the week

Rosemoor Drive. I have a lot of sympathy for the residents of Edgemoor Drive who have had to put up with theses issues for many years. Shifting the problem onto other people’s doorsteps however is not the solution. So what is the solution? The reality is that the road network in the area is ill equipped to deal with the volume of traffic. It may be that we need to sacrifice some of the rural parts around the area to build additional relief roads to link to Crosby and Waterloo from the motorways and Southport traffic. A very controversial idea which will not please some but may be a necessary evil. Steve, A concerned Crosby resident.

There should be more events in Maghull and Lydiate There is an appetite for events in Maghull and Lydiate for events. I look every week for things going on but all I see is flea markets, car boot sales and attic sales in the Champion entertainments section. I have an eight-year-old son and have taken him as far and wide as Crosby, Ormskirk, Penwortham etc. Other councils seem to be good at organising fairs, beer festivals etc. Shame we don’t seem to be as good! Some of the most successful events over recent years have been organised by Lydiate scouts or the Scotch Piper pub. We have a lot of excellent spaces right here (KGV fields, Lydiate village hall, Winney Brook etc) and I am frustrated they are not used to their full potential. I look forward to the day when I read the Champion and see the entertainment section brimming with events all over Maghull and Lydiate. The council needs to realise that organising events can generate income. Having one source of event information is also key. I would love it if rather than consulting multiple web sites, newspapers, notice boards I have to find out ‘what’s going on’ it would be great if I could go to one place, newpaper or website for all events information. Utilising the beautiful and woefully under used facilities in Maghull and Lydiate surely is a recipe for success and bringing together the community and generating income for the area!

Children sprinted over the snowy slopes of Beacon Country Park in a rush to get the best use out of last week’s surprise wintry downfall. Picture by Martyn Snape.

Pets’ play area was not the sort of recreation I envisaged Similar to previous letter writers, I too am disappointed to hear that what appears to be the largest unit in Crosby Village is to become a veterinary surgery with a recreation area for pets. St Mowden’s billboard says ‘Shops and Recreation coming soon’ - this is not the sort of recreation I envisaged! I have waited in anticipation to hear what badly needed shops we would be getting.

Time to get rid of Pies on the bridge At last the much needed work to rectify the accident blackspot on the M57 is now starting. May I request that while this work is taking place could they please consider the removal of the ‘Pies Music’ graffiti that has been an eyesore for many years and which is an unwelcome sight for our visitors that come to see our great city. I am certain I am not the only local that cannot bear the sight of this every time I drive into Liverpool.

Maybe a grocery shop, a DIY store, haberdashery, a shoe shop? It seems St Mowden will allocate these units to only those who can afford the extortionate rents. What will be next? Yet another tanning/beauty parlour? Margaret Parsons, Crosby

Arriva reveals time it takes to clean rubbish from buses Company shows how much ‘TLC ’ it gives its vehicles Report by Tom Martin ARRIVA has revealed the extreme lengths they have to go to in order to clean their buses – which includes the removal of hundreds of chewing gum. The company say that in 2017, they removed 530 tonnes of waste from their buses, including litter from passengers and gum left underneath seats. Chocolate wrappers, bus tickets, drinks containers, and fast food wrappers are the top five most commonly littered items left behind on a daily basis, with 21 newspapers left on each vehicle each day. Arriva say that each bus is cleaned for at least 20 minutes each day, which equates to around 774 hours to clean the 86 vehicles at the Bootle depot. They also revealed how buses are re-painted by hand every five years, which takes seven days to complete. The findings were revealed as part of the Great British Spring Clean, which took place between March 2-4. Lisa Pearson, head of marketing at Arriva said: “We take pride in

An Arriva bus

ensuring that our buses look and feel clean for our passengers, as we know it’s a large part of what makes travelling by bus enjoyable. “We hope that by showing them just how much TLC we put into

caring for our buses, will encourage people to think before they litter this National Spring Cleaning Week. In addition to this, we hope that our fleet of green technology buses will help contribute to making Britain clean.”

Council welcomes measures to improve mental health for children Authority believes ‘quality ’ support is vital for young people Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and UK Music CEO Michael Dugher

Plans to boost music scene A NEW ‘Music Board’ has been set-up to carry out a “radical plan to grow Liverpool’s worldfamous music scene.” It comes after Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram met with representatives from UK Music, which is the umbrella body for the UK music industry. UK Music chief Michael Dugher joined local politicians on Wednesday, March 7 to outline the plans of UK Music’s Wish You Were Here – Liverpool City Region Edition, that reveals the huge contribution that music makes to the economy and cultural scene of the Liverpool City Region. Unveiling the report, the leaders pledged their support for a new Music Board to spearhead a drive to cement Liverpool’s place as one of the world’s music capitals and to nurture the region’s talent. Taking its inspiration from similar initiatives in San Francisco and London, the new Music Board would co-ordinate efforts to safeguard and grow the Liverpool City Region’s music eco-system. The Liverpool City Region Music Board’s powers could include helping improve transport links for music fans, protecting music venues, as well as increasing access to music education and rehearsal spaces. The Music Board, which would be community and industry led with the aim of developing a strategy to boost music across the City Region, will work closely with all the Liverpool City Region local authorities, including Sefton Council and Liverpool City Council, to build on the success of Liverpool’s music scene. UK Music CEO Michael Dugher said: “Liverpool has a fantastic musical heritage. Its continuing success is clear to see in our new report which shows almost one million people enjoyed live music events in 2016, helping generate £135 million for the Liverpool City Region’s economy. “The Liverpool City Region’s devolution deal recognises the need to place culture and creativity at the heart of a strategy to accelerate economic growth, attract investment and improve skills. “I strongly believe that with the momentum of the devolution agenda, led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and following the work carried out by Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, we now have a golden opportunity to set up a Music Board to seize the moment and grow the music industry across every corner of the Liverpool City Region. “We can use this new Music Board to create an environment where people can create music that changes the world and attract visitors from across the globe to enjoy and work with the talent on offer here. “We know from London and from cities around the world that a Music Board gets the right people around the same table to deliver real change to protect venues, promote talent, widen access to music and boost jobs and growth.” Metro Mayor, Liverpool City Region, Steve Rotheram said: “One of my biggest ambitions as Metro Mayor is to harness the talent and creative energy of our people to ensure that it can thrive and prosper here. “In truth artists from every part of our City Region have contributed to the lustre of Liverpool’s musical reputation. “I will be writing to the leaders of all City Region local authorities to ask them to nominate members for the Board, as well as to members of the advisory panel for Liverpool’s recent music strategy.”

SEFTON Council has responded to the government’s Green Paper which has been asking people for their views on measures to improve mental health support for children and young people. The green paper, ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’, focuses on earlier intervention and prevention, especially in and linked to schools and colleges. Cllr John Joseph Kelly, cabinet member for children, schools and safeguarding, said: “Providing quality emotional and mental health support is vital for children and young people so that they can look forward to a bright future. “Therefore, we welcome the core proposals in

the government’s green paper which focus on earlier interventions, such as all schools and colleges being supported to train a designated lead to oversee the approach to mental health, and that teams will be set up locally to address the needs of children and young people with mild to moderate mental health issues. “Whilst we agree that the green paper is certainly heading in the right direction, the context of where we are starting from in terms of funding, skills and whether this is aspirational enough are just not evident. “First and foremost, it’s important that these proposals are fully funded and sustained to

include an integrated pathway from school to community services to specialist services. “We think that training provision is crucial for all school staff on emotional wellbeing and mental health and to support them to be able to work with our most vulnerable pupils – not just designated leads and teams. “Also, we believe that there must be huge efforts to ensure that the views of children and young people are heard in any future development of services and support. “We truly want to get the best for children and young people and hope the government addresses these issues.”

Council wants you to report dirty vehicles to cut air pollution Report by Danielle Thompson COUNCIL chiefs are urging Sefton residents to help them to reduce the amount of air pollution caused by vehicles. A High Court ruling recently declared that the Government must come up with more effective plans to tackle air pollution in local authority areas including Sefton. A raft of recent studies have linked air pollution to heart disease and lung problems, including asthma and outdoor air pollution is contributing to some 40,000 early deaths a year in the UK. To combat the problem Sefton Council is asking for your help in cutting the pollution caused by taxis, HGVs and buses. They want residents to report vehicles which are producing excessive smoke to the appropriate authorities so the fault can be rectified. Overly-polluting taxis can be reported to Sefton Council’s licensing team by making a note of the taxi driver number which usually appears on a small plate above the license plate and should have the Sefton The council wants to reduce the amount of pollution.

Repeat prescription campaign which saved South Sefton NHS £500,000 up for award

Susanne Lynch, head of medicines management at South Sefton CCG.

NHS South Sefton CCG has been shortlisted for an award in recognition of a prescription campaign which saved more than £500,000. The CCG has been shortlisted for the HSJ Value Awards 2018 and nominated in the communications category for work associated with communicating their Repeat Prescription Ordering Scheme (RPOS). RPOS was designed to improve patient safety, by reducing the amount of adverse drug events

caused by people having stockpiles of unused drugs stored without supervision in their homes, and also reduce the cost of unused prescriptions, estimated at around £2 million a year in Sefton alone. The scheme was part of an overall medicines optimisation strategy adopted by the CCGs which also included the ‘only order what you need’ public awareness campaign and a number of other initiatives aimed at improving people’s aware-

ness of the medicines they use. It is estimated that RPOS has resulted in estimated savings of at least £500,000 for the NHS in Sefton, although it is believed that the actual savings are significantly higher. RPOS also identified a significant number of patients who were not ordering their prescriptions and were subsequently at increased risk of deterioration in their health. Susanne Lynch, head of medicines

management at the CCG, said: Being shortlisted for such a prestigious award is testament to the hard work of everyone at the CCG who care deeply about delivering the best health service possible in Sefton. “The improvements to patient safety, coupled with significant cost savings, delivered by this scheme are a real success story.” The final winners will be announced at a ceremony in Manchester on June 7.

Popeye was right - you are what you are and that’s all that you are I AM a great supporter of Popeye the Sailor Man and his famous line - “I am what I am and that’s all that I am.� He knew alright - he was Popeye the Sailor Man. These days of course he would be forgiven if he wasn’t quite so sure - though the prospect of Popeye wearing a skirt is not one I’d like to contemplate. So I reckon my old cartoon hero would have been as an irritated as I was when I heard a discussion on a TV political programme about whether or not youngsters at school should, as part of their school uniform, be allowed to choose whether to wear trousers or skirts, irrespective of which sex they nominally belonged to. Of course, a very earnest young woman started spouting about ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity.’ Now please do not misunderstand me. I am not in any way trying to denigrate those who need to change their gender. But I don’t think this argument does their cause any good at all. The opposite in fact. To be clear, I think this was a rather trivial discussion being blown up by those who perpetrated it about a ‘proble’' that does not exist. Apparently the Liberal Democrats, tired of such things as Brexit or the economy, are now calling on all schools to adopt a ‘gender neutral’ policy for school uniforms so as not to upset those of a transgender disposition. Now I know the Lib Dems have, rightly, adopted very strong policies designed to stop bullying at school. This is a truly laudable ambition, though one I fear could never totally be achieved. And to suggest that if Tommy, who up 'till now wore trousers just like all of his contemporaries, should one day turn up at school wearing a skirt for a change without being a bullying target, then I am afraid they have rather over-estimated the tolerance of certain members of our society. Of course, I don’t suppose this would be what they mean at all. I think they mean that all pupils, boys and girls, should wear trousers. I have nothing against that in itself. Girls and women have worn trousers regularly for many years. My mum did for just about everything apart from formal occasions when the dress or skirt seemed to her more appropriate. But about ‘diversity.’ Suppose a girl chooses to wear a skirt with a blouse and uniform school blazer? Is she to be told that trousers are compulsory? And if so, isn't that in itself intolerant? Why on earth should anybody, and perhaps political parties in particular, feel it necessary to poke their noses into something which can surely be best handled by the school itself? And where would it stop? At the bottom perhaps. Should all pupils of either gender or none, wear the same sort of shoes? Or perhaps a nice pair of trainers which are, I think, more or less unisex? One of the reasons for wearing a school uniform in the first place is to place each pupil on a level footing - it certainly isn’t to provide instant amusement for the local yobos. When I was at secondary school, we boys all wore grey shirts and short trousers until, I think, we were in the fifth form when we changed like butterflies into long trousers and white shirts (with at first detachable collars!) And until then we were told, on pain of a visit to the headmaster, that school caps should be worn at all times outside school - including on the school buses each morning and evening. Naturally this was roundly ignored - though one’s cap was always kept crushed into a pocket somewhere in case anybody noticed. Well, I mean, how could one keep one’s dignity if you had just sneaked out for a crafty cigarette in the park - but wearing a cap? Not that the school had much tolerance to our diversity - which was of course precisely just what their attitude should have been. It was called ‘School Rules’ and frankly I think we would have felt a loss if a more ‘tolerant’ attitude had prevailed. Perhaps Popeye was indeed right. You are what you are and that’s all that you are but sometimes you need to be mature enough simply to fit in to a given situation - whatever you are.

Energy price cap must be brought in immediately says MP By Danielle Thompson FAMILIES are being forced to ‘choose between heating and eating due to fuel poverty' claims South Sefton MP Bill Esterson. More than 3,000 households in the constituency struggle to pay energy bills and the MP said new legislation aimed at protecting people from overpriced energy tariffs, does not go far enough.

Share your memories of the RAF Lifeguards with the Champion newspaper needed for

THE Royal Air Force will celebrate its centenary on April 1. The World’s First Independent Air Force was formed one hundred years ago when King George V authorised the creation of a new branch of the British military. It was formed in response to the growing role of airpower in warfare, and created by merging the aviation branches of the Royal Navy and British Army together into a single service, the Royal Air Force. There are many events and celebrations planned to mark the ‘RAF100’ milestone and here at the Champion we would like to add our own special tribute. We are appealing for any local stories and photographs, focusing on local people who have served in the RAF, both present day and during the past 100 years.

assault course

Have you served in the Royal Air Force? Do you have any stories from your time there? Do you have any family members who served and have stories? Locally, RAF Woodvale, between Southport and Formby, has its own history to tell. RAF Woodvale was opened in 1941 as a night fighter station for the defence of Liverpool and the docks after the city blitz in May. The station was used as a rest area for fighter squadrons after being in combat in the south of the UK throughout the war. The station closed in 1945 after a brief period of use by the Royal Navy.

In 1946 Spitfires of 611 Squadron reopened the airfield and the squadron stayed there until it was stood down in 1957. Since 1971, the Station's role has been largely training, with 611 reforming there in 2013. Royal Air Force Woodvale is currently home to flying units providing flying training to future University Air Squadron students and giving air experience flights to Air Cadet Organisations within the North West.

The studio where the winner of the 'battle of the bands' will be able to spend a day recording.

Report by Kenny Parker A MUSIC company has launched a competition for budding young musicians to battle it out for a chance to spend a day at its professional recording studio. The contest will take place at Ormskirk Civic Hall on Friday June 22 and is open to anyone, whether soloist, duo or band and will have two age categories, seven-12 and 13-17. The organisers at Sound Affects, say entrants can perform covers or their own original material. Studio supervisor and events coordinator, Rosa Weiner, says the acts will receive constructive feedback from the judges, which will allow them to assess their performance and work on the proposed improvements, in order for them to become more confident musicians, regardless of how far they do or don’t progress in the competition. She said: “We believe it is a brilliant opportunity for those who have always dreamed of having the chance

to perform on stage, for those who study music and students who have a passion for performing.” Sound Affects has two branches; an Ormskirk branch which is home to Sound Affects Premier, a guitar shop selling a wide ranch of high end guitars, opposite which is the main teaching hub and music studio; and an Aintree branch which also has a range of guitars and a smaller teaching hub. The top prize for winning the ‘battle of the bands’ is a day spent recording at the Ormskirk studio. Other prizes will include free music lessons at the company ’s teaching facilities and among others where there will be individual prizes for 'best vocalist’, 'all round performer' and 'star of the show'. Participants will also be offered optional mentored sessions at a cost of £30 per hour, where the students will receive technical advice, performance techniques and encouragement. Acts must apply by Friday March 30 with auditions taking place April 10, 12, and 14. Applications cost £10 per act. Visit to apply.

The focus for World Glaucoma Week 2018, from The International Glaucoma Association (IGA), is on the prevalence of glaucoma in the UK and Globally with an emphasis on the importance of regular eye health checks to detect glaucoma in the early stages. The IGA recommends that everyone over the age of 40 should see an optician (optometrist) or medical specialist for an eye test every two years. This is particularly important for those who have a close relatives with glaucoma (brother, sister, parent or child), of African Caribbean and Asian origins, diabetic, have low blood pressure, or are short sighted. Glaucoma is usually painless and does not cause symptoms until it is quite advanced. It is therefore important to have regular eye health checks which test for glaucoma at an early stage. These tests are quick and painless and involve:

Unfortunately, there are no symptoms from early glaucoma. By the time a patient has symptoms, it is usually too late. This is why glaucoma has been described as the ‘silent thief of sight’. It affects 600,000 in the UK and it is estimated that 76 million people globally will have glaucoma by 2020, making it the leading cause of irreversible blindness globally. The safest way to protect ourselves from glaucoma is to regularly attend a local high-street Optician. Apart from prescribing and issuing glasses, an Optometrist can carry out tests to see whether a patient has Glaucoma. >

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, the nerve that captures light and sends that light to the brain where an image is generated, giving you ‘sight’. A diseased optic nerve does not see well and in some cases, patients can lose their sight from this condition. Those who are most at risk of Glaucoma are generally, the elderly, patients with Indian, Asian or African origins, and those who have a family member who is already affected by the disease.

The good news is glaucoma can be treated, we use eye drops, lasers and surgery to stop or slow down the condition. However, we cannot restore any sight already lost, hence the importance of early detection whilst people are free of any symptoms. 9 out of 10 patients do not need surgery. A lot of patients ask, will it stop me from driving? The answer is, only if they have it in both eyes AND it is severe. It is the individual’s responsibility to

ensure that they meet DVLA requirements.

patients have sight problems from Glaucoma.

A person must inform the DVLA if they have glaucoma in both eyes. In this instance the DVLA will arrange for them to have some further testing done, which will determine their eligibility to hold a UK Driving License. Class 2 license holders have more stringent requirements.

This is a condition that patients tend to live with, not suffer from.

Remember, with early detection, from regular eye tests, and appropriate treatment very few

RSPCA urges Blues and Reds legends to unite extra care for outside pets FOOTBALL legends from both sides of the city will come together for a special fundraiser for St Joseph's Hospice. Former Blues player Kevin Ratcliffe and ex-Reds manager Roy Evans will bring fans together on Friday, May 11 for a special Sportsman’s Dinner in aid of the Thornton hospice. Comedian Mark Langley will compere the night at The Bentley in Liverpool - a

brand new event space in the heart of the city. The event, sponsored by B&M Supplies in Southport, will begin with a welcome drink on arrival followed by a three-course meal before Kevin and Roy reveal stories from their times at the clubs. Laura Smith, community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “It promises to be an excellent night of sporting enter-

tainment and fundraising for the hospice. Our nurses and carers look after over 200 patients from across Merseyside every year and events like this make a huge difference to the care and support we can provide.” Tickets cost £40 and are available to book by calling the hospice’s fundraising team on 0151 932 6044 or by emailing

Report by Kenny Parker THE RSPCA has issued advice to ensure that animals are kept safe and warm during the sharp spells of weather that still catch out animal owners throughout spring. For rabbits, the animal charity advises that owners consider moving hutches inside or into an outhouse, shed or unused garage. If you have to leave them outside, you must provide them with lots of extra bedding and make sure their home is protected from adverse weather. Other advice includes the information that cats need to have continuous access to a warm environment, and antifreeze and rock salt can be poisonous to pets. Owners of elderly or sick dogs could consider putting a coat on their pet, while all dogs should be kept away from frozen ponds, lakes or rivers which can pose a danger. If you keep pet birds in aviaries, coops, or runs, then you need to provide plenty of additional dry, warm bedding such as straw and cover enclosures to keep the wind and rain out. Birds will eat more to keep warm in cold conditions so ensure the birds always have access to plenty of food and fresh water, ensuring water does not freeze over If you have a fish pond check it every day to make sure the surface is not entirely frozen as poisonous gases can build up under the ice. Don’t break the ice as this can harm the fish, but carefully place a saucepan of hot water on the surface to gently melt a hole in the ice. Never tip boiling water straight onto the pond either, as this can also harm or kill any fish living there. Horses and livestock require extra time and care in the colder, winter months. Ensure they have adequate shelter to escape adverse weather and be pre-

pared to provide extra feed and good quality long fibre, as grass is often sparse. It is also important to check water troughs and buckets are clear of ice. The RSPCA’s advice also extends to the wild birds, which it says struggle to find food during the winter months. You can feed them suitable seeds and grains, like oats and sunflower seeds; cooked pasta or rice; boiled potatoes, cheese, or uncooked unsalted bacon rind; raisins and sultanas; net-free fat or suet balls; apples, pears and soft fruits.

Murphy's Law in front of Liver Bird wings street art on Jamaica Street in Liverpool

Campaign to save Mounted Police A CAMPAIGN has been launched to keep Mounted Police horses on the streets. In 1886, Liverpool Police became the first provincial police force in Britain to maintain a permanent Mounted Branch - and last week marked the next chapter in its illustrious horse history. In order to continue its work, Merseyside Police is launching a brand and sponsorship package, called Stand Tall, to help the Mounted Section remain at the heart of communities as well as help police some of Merseyside's biggest events. Over the years, the section has helped police Royal Visits, World Cup matches in 1966, a civic reception for The Beatles, and trophy processions by Everton and Liverpool football clubs. The horses are regularly used to visit schools and attend community events. They are also

deployed to patrol the city centre at weekends, for crowd control at football matches, to patrol the shorelines in holiday season and famously to guide the victorious horse in the Grand National into the winner’s enclosure. The logo for the Merseyside Mounted Police is inspired by Murphy’s Law, a police horse who loyally served the force for 14 years. Murphy sadly died last year, shortly after becoming a social media star when he posed in front of Liver Bird wings street art on Jamaica Street in Liverpool. As part of a range of sponsorship packages, companies will be able to name a horse for a year, adopt a horse, be a keeper for the day and even get their logo on the saddles of the horses who will lead the Grand National winner into the Winners Enclosure.

Creation Ministries will be challenging this view with our talks that address commonly asked questions, such as: What happened to the dinosaurs? What about the Big Bang? What about carbon dating? Surely Noah and the Ark aren’t historical? Why could God not have used evolution? Why is there death & suffering? And many more!

MORE than 100 eager buyers attended a special preview event to learn more about a highly anticipated new homes development

Redrow is building 57 new homes from its Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection, including some affordable properties, at the semi-rural location, off Green Lane, including two, three and four-bedroom designs.

Nestled on the edge of open countryside, yet just minutes from the motorway network and just eight miles from Liverpool city centre, it’s no surprise that Maghull is one of the most sought after locations in Merseyside.

Lesley Myers, sales manager for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), said: “More than 300 people have registered their interest in the new homes at Dover Meadows and 100 people attended our pre-launch event to find out more. There was a real buzz about the development and we received some fantastic feedback from those looking to move.

“We’ll have a choice of three and four-bedroom detached homes available from April and look forward to welcoming our first purchasers when we open the show homes.”

The area benefits from good schools as well as excellent commuter connections. Maghull has plenty of shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities while Liverpool city centre is a short drive away or a 20 minute journey by train from Maghull Station.

There’s still time for those considering purchasing to register their interest to receive future updates about

Wicked still leaving audiences spellbound Review by Henry James

Bill Bailey

Bill Bailey stopping off in resort with his latest tour Interview by Henry James COMEDIAN Bill Bailey is taking his Larks In Transit tour the length and breadth of the UK throughout Spring and he is coming to the Southport Theatre for two gigs on April 27 and 28. He knows Southport well as his wife, Kristin, grew up in the town, and the last time he performed here he remembers having a “family reunion.” Bill, 53, said: “I performed in Southport a few years ago and it was a fantastic night with much banter and nonsense. The gig was really good fun. My wife’s family came to watch and it was a family reunion.” The performer can be described as a comedian, musician, singer and radio and TV presenter and he will be touring until June. “During the show I tell tales from my travels around the world,” Bill commented. “There is music, which is a common element of my show and I play a number of different instruments that I have picked up. There is some politics as well. The night can be described as a pot pourri. “The tour has gone well so far and we have managed to hit the ground running. It has been great fun already. “While touring sometimes there may be a different atmosphere in the audience and it can be for many different reasons. It may be because of the venue and what people are used

to, and what they are expecting. It may also be the mood that people are in. “In some cases the show you are in can be in a theatre and people expect you to do it and they sit back. At other times, the audience can wade in and shout out and you then realise that the audience are game for anything, and you can take the show off the road.” Bill, who has become a regular on our screens and appeared on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, QI and Have I Got News for You, is also a musician, and music has now become an important part of his shows. He added: “Since my early days of performing stand up music has become an integral part of my shows. “I try and reflect all the styles of music I like, such as folk, rock, metal, and electronic. The audience will also be able to hear bird calls, and all the sounds we experience in our daily lives.” Bill is a supporter of the Labour party, but was critical of them at the time of the 2015 election campaign, and he talks about politics and current affairs during his touring shows. He added: “Whenever I travel around the world all that people talk about is Brexit. “People are fascinated by Brexit. This is a strange period in our history where we have upended all the norms of Britain, such as a stable democracy and thrown it out for a new era. We are now in the unknown. “I love Britain, I love the climate and the weather, but the British are definitely different.”

The scene where Defying Gravity is sung, is the highlight of the first half. The number has been rated as among the top songs from musicals. Elphaba is invited to meet The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Steven Pinder). Audiences may remember Steven for playing Max Farnham in Brookside. Is the Wizard as powerful as everyone says he is?

He has been described as having an “incredible likeness” to Elvis, from his voice, hair, side burns, piercing eyes and his mannerisms. This Is Elvis – Burbank and Vegas celebrates 83 years since Elvis’ birth and 50 years since his televised ‘Special’ aired on NBC Television, which later came to be known as his ’68 Comeback Special. The musical follows the true story of this very pivotal period in Elvis’ life and career, charting his journey back to stardom and his return to success as a stage performer. Steve Michaels’ performances of the King have garnered him worldwide attention. Steve has played alongside some of Elvis Pres-

ley’s iconic band mates including the legendary drummer DJ Fontana and bassist Jerry Scheff. In addition, he has shared the stage with The Jordanaires and the soulful voices of the Sweet Inspirations.

IN the same week that International Women's Day was being marked, the Broadway and West End musical, Wicked, which it is said to be about “girl power”, opened at the Liverpool Empire. The show is about the untold story of the witches of Oz. The two main characters in the production are both women and they are the Wicked Witch of the West, called Elphaba, who is played by Amy Webb, and Glinda the Good Witch (Helen Woolf). The musical looks at a number of issues including: friendship, relationships, makeovers, outsiders and bullying, and it has cast a spell over audiences in London and Broadway, where it can still be seen today. The staging of this touring production of Wicked is first class. The sets and costumes are very striking and I liked the puppets used in the show. There are floating people as well. Elphaba, who has green skin and has supernatural powers, goes to Shiz University with her disabled sister Nessarose (Emily Shaw). At Shiz, Elphaba is intro-

instance, would barely get you a one-bed flat in its London namesake. A main course at an upmarket restaurant in Marylebone or Mayfair costs more than I’d normally spend on a couple’s three-course night out in this part of the world. And don’t get me started on £6 pints. It’s the same with cars too, as anyone who’s ever ordered a Porsche GT3 and traded rear seats for roll cages and stereos for stripped-back carbonfibre will know. Which is why I have to admire Land Rover for unveiling its new, ultra-luxury spinoff of the Range Rover at the Geneva Motor Show last week. There’s lots of “contemporary design” and “up-to-the-minute technology ” breaking up the slabs of wood and acres of leather you’d expect on the inside, and they are only building 999 of them, but what you can’t fail to notice is that for your £240,000 asking price you get two fewer doors. Automotive proof that less really is more in the world of cars, too. What it does prove, however, is that if the money’s there then it’s not impossible to convert a five-door car into a three-door one; which makes me wonder why three-door cars much further down the pecking order are all being quietly killed off. The RenaultSport Clio – a car you’d expect to arrive sans rear doors, because that way the body’s stiffer – is now only available in five-door form, and it’s the same story with the Ford Focus, and the Honda Civic. Word has it that the three-door version of Audi’s A3 is being pensioned off, too. Which is a real shame, because for all the awkward fumbling you have with sliding seats forward and climbing through narrow gaps there is a youthful sense of fun about three-door hatches, and it’s sad to see it slowly disappearing. The Peugeot 205 GTI just wouldn’t have had the same frisson of mischief had it been equipped with five doors, and nor would Renault’s Clio Williams or Citroen’s AX GT. They all had five-door cousins, of course, but it was worth eschewing the practicality for a stiffer bodyshell and cleaner looks. Surely if the argument works for the Range Rover all these years later – especially being positioned as a luxury spinoff – it’ll work for the next Ford Focus RS or Honda Civic Type-R, too? It’s exactly the sort of petrolhead argument I’m hoping to win next time I visit the pub. Anyone got six quid they can lend me?

SPORT Remyca share points after eight goal thriller Chadderton 4 Litherland Remyca 4 REMYCA’S hopes for automatic promotion were dealt a blow after they conceded two late goals to draw an eight goal thriller. The 120 spectators, including Manchester United legend Paul Scholes who was supporting his son Arron for the home side, were treated to an end-toend game. Remyca got off to a flying start when Paul Foy headed in after seven minutes but Chadderton equalised to make it 1-1 going into half time. On 53 minutes Colin Quirk cut in side and scored to make it 2-1

before Oscar Billlington made it 3-1 to the visitors. Not to be denied Chadderton kept coming and from a hopeful cross they pulled a goal back. Remyca scored on 69 minutes when substitute Connor Murphy netted from close range to make it 4-2. At 4-2 in front Remyca should have managed the game out but looked vulnerable as the young Chadderton guns piled forward. On 75 minutes Chaddderton again exposed defensive frailties to score a third and as Remyca defended deep, conceded a penalty which Chadderton scored to make it 4-4.

Michael Brewster sidefoots home to put Marine two goals up. Picture by Susan Nugent.

Goals from Hughes and Brewster secure vital home win for Mariners Marine 2 Hednesford Town 0 MARINE picked up a vital three points in their fight for survival in the EvoStik Premier Divison table thanks to goals from Adam Hughes and Michael Brewster. Both side soon adapted to the heavy underfoot conditions and the first half proved evenly-contested. Liam Tongue’s early speculative effort for the Mariners was well-held by Town custodian Wren, while at the other end Butlin's flicked header from a free-kick dropped onto the roof of Martin Fearon's net. The Mariners continued to press and Amis teed up Short whose well-struck half-volley flew just a yard wide of the diving Wren's right-hand post. The Whites took the lead four minutes before the break after a foul on Amis close to the touchline 15 yards from the corner flag on the Marine right. Short's inswinging delivery to the far post caught the goalkeeper and his teammates flat-footed, and Adam Hughes headed in from close range. The Pitmen spurned two decent scoring opportunities early in the second half as Mendez-Jones volleyed over from 12 yards following another set-piece, before striker

Graham struck nothing but fresh air when well-placed ten yards from goal. Mitchley and Amis' fledgling partnership proved effective once more to allow the latter a low shot on goal which Wren held securely. A quick counter in the Whites' next attack saw Tongue's shot well-held by Wren as Mitchley scented a rebound. Just before the hour mark leading scorer Mitchley turned provider, holding off the attentions of Gatter to cross from the lefthand byline and Wren could only palm the ball at full-stretch into Brewster's path, and the ex-Southport midfielder calmly sidefooting home from eight yards to give the Mariners a two-goal cushion.

The Pitmen sought an immediate response and winger Lawrie dragged a left-footed shot nearer to the corner flag than goal from 15 yards, before Graham was played into the Marine box but Short produced a well-timed challenge as the Hednesford striker was about to pull the trigger. Graham’s incisive run with four minutes remaining ended with his daisy-cutter through defenders' legs forcing Fearon into a smart save low to his right, but the Mariners saw out time in relative comfort to record an important and deserved victory which further eases their relegation fears. Marine were due to host Lancaster City on Tuesday night and are away to last weekend’s opponenents Hednesford Town on Saturday.

Waterloo are battered at Burnage but play-off spot is still in reach Burnage 41 Firwood Waterloo 7 NOT the best of days for Firwood Waterloo who now slip back a place to fourth place in the table. But they are still in with a chance of making the playoff as they still have to play second place Blackburn and now third Northwich, both at home. Director of rugby Steve

Wood said the artificial surface partly explained their performance. He said: “We had not played for three weeks and that told as we were very slow out of the blocks. “Also we did not adapt to the pace of the artificial surface and they really put us under the cosh with the speed of their attack. “We did have captain Jack Weir missing but in all hon-

esty they had us beaten all over the field. “We need to regroup after because there is still a lot of rugby to be played and we must come again.” The home side took the lead with three converted tries and a penalty to go in at the interval 21-7 ahead, Firwood Waterloo’s try coming from good pressure from a restart to get lock Connor Scrivens over, Nick Dwyer

adding the conversion. The second half was all Burnage who added a further 17 points from two more converted tries and a penalty to take the match and the bonus point. Firwood Waterloo have no game again this weekend due to Six Nations action but will return at home on March 24 against second place Blackburn which will be a must win game for both clubs.
