Shooting in Square prompts calls for public meeting

INSIDE THIS WEEK:

CLOSED AT WEEKENDS.. Marsh Lane police station cuts back opening hours to public as force claims ‘people just aren’t using them like they used to ’

‘Eat your greens’ Mr Bloom tells youngsters at Strand

Report by Tom Martin MARSH Lane police station has closed to the public at weekends and now has reduced opening hours during the week, it has been announced. Merseyside Police say the decision has been taken to cut back the opening times at certain General Enquiry Offices (GEOs) across the region due to less people using them, more crimes being reported online and officers having to be taken off the streets to help operate them. Marsh Lane police station was previously open between 8am-10pm from Monday to Saturday

A POPULAR children’s television presenter visited Bootle to encourage the town’s youngsters to ‘eat healthy’ over Easter. Mr Bloom, a character from BBC’s Cbeebies show, visited the Strand to explain to them the importance of vegetables. The entertainer performed two shows in the Strand’s Mons Square as part of the shopping centre’s series of Easter events, aimed at promoting health and wellbeing. Strand manager Rowland Parry said: “We were delighted to see the turnout for Mr Bloom and were very impressed with the children’s knowledge of the vegetables he brought along.

Wildflower meadow could be created in Rimrose Valley Group launches fundraising bid for ‘Bees, Blooms & Butterflies’ project Report by Tom Martin

Installer

A WILDFLOWER meadow the size of a rugby pitch could be created on Rimrose Valley Country Park under ambitious plans by a local community action group. Rimrose Valley Friends have launched an online fundraiser in the hope of hitting a £4,700 target by Friday, May 10 in order for the work to be carried out later that same month. The community group are working in partnership with Sefton Council and the National Wildflower Centre on the project, which has been called ‘Bees, Blooms & Butterflies.’ The meadow will be one hectare in size, which is roughly the size of a rugby pitch, and it will create a new habitat for bees and other insects, which are currently in decline. Speaking about the launch of 'Bees, Blooms & Butterflies', Linda Gaskell of

Rimrose Valley Country Park.

Rimrose Valley Friends said: “After attending a community crowd-funding presentation, we came up with the idea to create something beautiful on our beloved Rimrose Valley for the communities of south Sefton and beyond. “We want to create a stunning wildflower meadow this year, which is extremely ambitious, but we think it’s achievable. The public’s response has been nothing short of amazing, with £575 raised in the first 36 hours. We need to raise £4,700 by Friday, May 10 in order for this to happen. “The crowd-funding platform we’re

using is different to others, as it is backed by funding partners, who, if they see that the community is really behind the project, have the power to award significant grants to make it happen. “This means we aren’t expecting the public to raise every single penny. We are simply asking people to pledge whatever they can afford to show their support. The minimum pledge is just £2. “We’re asking everyone with a passion for wildlife, nature and green space to help us to hit our target by pledging at: www.spacehive.com/bees-blooms-butterflies.”

Motorcyclist steals charity box destined for hospice A HEARTLESS motorcyclist was captured on CCTV stealing a charity box from a shop in Netherton. Footage shared on social media shows a man enter Wheeliez Motorcycle Shop, in Sefton Business Park, and when the shop attendant wasn't looking he took the donations box. It had been placed near the till and contained an unknown amount of cash, which was destined for Woodlands Hospice. Merseyside Police are investigating the theft, which occurred on Monday, April 8 at around 4.30pm, and are appealing for information. Community Inspector Duncan Swan said: “This money was clearly destined for a well-known local charity which provides invaluable support, and it’s hard to believe that someone would stoop so low as to target both the business and the good cause they are supporting. “We are aware that social media

images are in circulation in connection with this incident and would ask that anyone with information comes forward to police or via Crimestoppers and refrains from commenting on social media.” Anyone with information should contact 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“Highlighting the benefits of healthy eating in such a fun way with Mr Bloom and his songs we hope was beneficial to our shoppers and we certainly had lots of fun too.” The Strand continues its gardening

Teen shot at in Marian Square targeted attack ‘Fed up’ locals take to social media to call for meeting to ‘help solve area’s problems’ Report by Tom Martin A TEENAGER escaped unscathed when he was shot at in a targeted attack in Netherton. Two males on a motorbike opened fire in the direction of the 17-year-old male in Marian Square on Friday, April 12 at around 7.30pm.

Station to close to public at weekends From page 1

“We have community police stations across Merseyside and at the start of last year we introduced a dedicated social media desk in our call centre giving the public the ability to contact us online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to report non-emergency incidents, or to ask for advice. In the last 14 months the desk has dealt with an average of 2,500 contacts every month. “The review we have conducted on the GEOs has shown that the

number of people visiting the offices has declined year on year and people just aren’t using them like they used to, preferring to contact us via other means. “We clearly need to consider this as we continue to look at how we best engage with our communities in the most efficient and effective way. “It’s really important for us to get the right offer for our local communities and that needs to balance their needs with the demand we see for services. We

can then put our resources in the right places. “Quite often people believe that when a general enquiry office is closed the police station is no longer operational. This is not the case. “We will continue to review how our communities can contact us to ensure that we can provide an offer that meets their needs and ensures the most effective use of force resources. “Any decisions we make will not be made lightly, but it must be

remembered that since 2010 the force has lost £110m and more than 1600 officers and staff due to funding cuts. We have already made a lot of hard decisions, but the impact of these cuts is continuing and the decisions we are having to make are getting harder. “But I can assure the people of Merseyside that our duty to protect the public remains our primary aim and we will continue to deliver the best possible service we physically can with the budget and the resources we have.”

“Merseyside Police will not tolerate the use of firearms on our streets and we are committed to finding the people involved in the incident and bringing them to justice.” Marian Square is usually busy with shoppers on the weekend, but on Saturday, April 13 locals woke up to police tape and increased patrols in the area following the shooting the previous evening. Some shops were

forced to remain closed as Crime Scene Investigators carried out forensic examinations at the scene and CCTV was looked at. Details on the possible meeting have not been released yet. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to DM @MerPolCC, call 101 quoting reference 0891 of 12 April, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or @CrimestoppersUK.

independent life. He said: “She’s never been one for letting other people do things for her and she’s always been really independent. She’s always done it for herself.” Sarah was born in 1913 in Seel Street, Liverpool, and had a number of jobs including working in a local printing company and a bedding firm. She married William Travis in 1939 and together they

moved to St John’s Road, in Waterloo, in 1945 before relocating to Bootle five years later. The married pair had three children – Bill, Marie and John – before William sadly passed away in 2000 at the age of 87. Sarah was delighted to share her special day last week with friends, family and staff at Abbegale Lodge.

Local metal and plastics recycler, EMR, has donated £800 to Bootle Action Group so they can “create a cleaner, brighter Bootle.” Bootle Action Group launched a partnership with EMR in 2017 and this means the company has committed to support large clean up events and projects across the town. EMR general manager, Phil Hoare said: “At EMR we put a great deal of importance on supporting the communities that are close to our sites and we are proud to have a partnership with an organisation that makes such a difference. “We hope that these trees will be enjoyed by the local community and that they will contribute to Bootle Action Group’s overall aim to make Bootle a clean and tidy place.” EMR have recently donated more than £2,000 for new bins outside the Strand Shopping Centre and Hugh Baird College and provided hi vis jackets, safety equip-

We hope other local businesses see the fantastic work EMR is doing in the community and contribute in a similar positive way.”

Red Rum Club

Glastonbury dream comes true for band Report by Tom Martin ROCK band Red Rum Club from Crosby say “it’s a dream come true” after they were asked to play at Glastonbury Festival. Band members Neil Lawson, 26, Joe Corby, 26, Fran Doran, 25, Simon Hepworth, 25, Mike McDermott, 25 and Tom Williams, 23, have been selected to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at this year's event, taking place in June. BBC Introducing showcases the UK’s best ‘underthe-radar ’ musicians and new acts and has been credited with helping launch the careers of acts such as Jake Bugg, George Ezra and Florence + the Machine. A spokesperson for Red Rum Club said: “It’s a dream come true and we’re absolutely over the

moon to announce we will be playing Glastonbury Festival this year. “We want to say a huge thank you to Dave Monks and BBC Introducing for supporting us since day one.” The Champion reported in January how Red Rum Club soared straight into the UK ‘alternative’ chart’s number one spot with their début album. The Crosby band also reached number 11 in the regular album charts after releasing their album, Matador, knocking Mumford and Sons off the top spot with more than 30,000 downloads of the album on the first day of its release! The band members all attended either Holy Family Catholic High School, in Thornton, or Sacred Heart Catholic College in Crosby. They combine old and new sounds, channeling ‘wild west vibes’ with a trumpet and early 1960s guitar riffs.

LETTERS to the Editor

Rat running is no answer to overloaded road system I have been a resident of Thornfield Road for more than 30 years, and like most other local residents had, for a long time, become sick and tired of the huge volume of traffic using this estate as a means of avoiding queues around the junction between Moor Lane, Quarry Road, Edge Lane and Virgin’s Lane. With the opening of Broom’s Cross Road, traffic reached intolerable levels, with rushhour queues along Thornfield Road, Edgemoor Drive and other roads. This made it difficult for residents to leave or return to their homes by car. It felt like we were living on main roads. Following many complaints to the council residents were consulted on solutions. The majority view was that the junction between Edgemoor Drive and Moor Lane should be closed, which after a trial period has been made permanent. This has vastly improved our quality of life. Not having access to Moor Lane via Edge-

moor Drive is an inconvenience for some. But even in a solid queue it only takes two minutes to get up Moor Lane from where the junction was and back down Thornfield Road. Re-opening the junction between Edgemoor Drive and Moor Lane will not solve the traffic problems in this area; they existed long before the closure. But re-opening it will make our lives a misery once again. Moor Lane is an A-road (the A565), which is a major through-route. Thornfield Road, Edgemoor Drive, and indeed Rosemoor Drive and Cranfield Road are unclassified residential roads. Rat-running on such roads is not the answer to an overloaded network. Shame on those people who want a return to this behaviour on this estate.

would ensue. Thornton desperately needs speed cameras and other traffic calming measures. In the meantime motorists needs to understand that with so much traffic on the roads delays are inevitable. Thornton residents, By e-mail

And although Moor Lane traffic is gridlocked at peak times, that does not give drivers the right to ignore red lights, rat run, or speed, if everyone did that chaos

Since the opening of Brooms Cross Road, the follow on problems that have emerged causing dangerous situations around Green Lane and Hartdale Road. During rush hour periods, traffic on Moor Lane is generally backed up to Brooms Cross Road this means many impatient school run drivers are taking to roads such as Green Lane and Hartdale Road. Dangerous manoeuvres are undertaken by impatient parents, driving against the flow of traffic in order to access Hartdale Road to drop their children off. Not only do they drive at excess speed against the flow of traffic but they also speed down Hartdale Road. The issue has been raised with Sefton Council, but they say a survey and percentile results, found there was no problem and so are reluctant to put in place measures to resolve this issue. When there is a serious accident or a fatality on these roads then action will be taken. Hartdale Road is also a ‘feeder ’ for the Crescent, with rush hour traffic traveling at speed from Green Lane to Edge Lane in order to beat the standing traffic on Moor Lane.

Thornton desperately needs speed cameras and other traffic calming measures A letter writer asked if the people of Thornton have spared a thought as to why motorists use the Crescent as a ‘rat run’ : I would like to reply ‘yes we have.’ Thornton is a small village with about 2,000 residents and up until about ten years ago it was a relatively quiet residential area. However we now have

Glad that sports Bus companies should be made to Old fashioned venue back in use provide socially necessary services courtesy is Re: Article on a bowling green being created on the site of old tennis courts at Brownmoor Sports Club. I was a member of Brownmoor Park Tennis Club during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. At that time the clubhouse was an old wooden pavilion housing five men’s teams two ladies’ teams and a junior team. We had 60 juniors who were coached each Saturday morning by two prominent playing members. It was at this time when the men’s first team won the Ransome Bowl, a prestigious competition with teams competing from across the North West. We won this competition in two successive years. In 1978 the pavilion was burgled and set on fire. This resulted in an exodus of many playing members during the subsequent reconstruction of a new brick built clubhouse. Following the completion of the new clubhouse it soon attracted the notice of a number of ‘social members’ who very soon outnumbered playing members. The name change from tennis club to social club quickly followed and because of this many tennis playing members left, resulting ultimately in the total demise of what once was a wonderful sporting venue. It is heartening to learn that Brownmoor Park will once again provide a sporting venue, albeit a different one from the original. B Webb, Blundellsands

Re: Letter in the March 27 edition on bus regulation. Prior to deregulation in 1986, bus services that were profitable during the day, cross subsidised the later services that did not. Therefore money was spread across the whole operating day to fund services that were socially needed but were not making a profit. Many services funded themselves by a spread of revenue from start of service to the end, including investment in assets and staff. The letter writer realises the importance of socially necessary services but derides the system that delivered them more cost effectively before deregulation. Bus companies will not maintain any service that will not make a profit. The deregulated private system allows them to give notice and simply walk away and a continued service would not be their concern or problem. So if we use the current bus network as a yard-

stick on quality of compared to pre deregulated services then the former is the worst of the two. My own experience is that the unreliable vehicles arrived after 1986 when the efficient National Bus Company was disbanded. So if the letter writer wants buses to be in the private sector, then let us out make them truly in that sector by not allowing them to run a bus just when they can make a fast buck and then clear off to leave the socially necessary services to be tendered out with our money. We should hold their private feet to the fire by insisting and legislating to make them apply their profits to a full day services or not at all. In fact we could actually regulate them so the taxpayer is not picking up the tab for their private profit as we are doing now! Kenneth Oldfield, Sefton,

Buy less food if you Grove Road is the next station to New Brighton want less waste! I have been puzzled by the letters in support of food waste collection. Considering that we can recycle all fruit and vegetable waste in the green bins, and packaging, cans and bottles in the brown bins, why do people have so much food waste? The answer is stop wasting it - buy less, plan meals and shop more sensibly, then there’ll only be minimal waste for the grey bin.

Coming from Wallasey I would like to take Jim Sharpe to task about last week’s column, and tell him the next railway station after New Brighton is Grove Road. There is a Manor Road but that is in the middle of Liscard Village with not a train station in sight.

alive and well!

Given the febrile state of our nation, it was refreshing to observe, as I did recently, the positive behaviour of our local young people. Old-fashioned courtesy and good manners are alive and well. A cold, wet and miserable day was brightened on Maghull Station platform. It was packed almost to overflowing by young people from the local Maricourt High School. I, as a 84 year old, wormed my way to the waiting room, also packed with young people. Within two seconds three of them stood up and asked if I would like to sit down. Moreover, as the train approached and we all made our way to the platform, a local police officer asked if they would make way for me to board the train first. They parted like Red Sea waves and helped to escort me onto the train. The journey was equally affable; lots of chatter, laughter and banter. I felt safe and secure. I warmed to the thought that whatever is happening at a national level, the future of our country is in good hands. It cost them nothing, but for this geriatric, their behaviour was priceless. This is a small event perhaps, but acts as a counterpoint to the broken nation epitomised by our dysfunctional national politicians. A cold, wet and miserable day was truly illuminated by these bright young people. Their behaviour expressed compassionate thinking. It did not go unnoticed and I hope if they read this they will know it. Terence Crolley, Maghull

Man who fought Islamic State faces retrial on terrorism charges Report by Danielle Thompson A JURY has failed to reach verdicts on whether a man originally from Netherton committed terror offences by fighting against Islamic State - in the very first case of its kind. Aidan James, 28, travelled to Syria in 2017 a ‘revolutionary freedom fighter’ against the Islamic State group and was charged with three terror offences upon his return to the UK. The jury was unable to reach verdicts last week – and prosecutors said they would seek a retrial on the two outstanding counts. Earlier in the trial Mr James, who has a history of mental illness, was acquitted of preparing terrorist acts, after the Old Bailey judge said he had 'no case to answer' to the charge. He denied two charges of attending terrorist training camps. Mr James, a former pupil at Dale Acre Primary

School in Netherton, who was previously rejected by the British Army, had no previous military knowledge when he set out to join the war in 2017. The court heard James, a father of one who now lives in Formby, had been monitored by police after broadcasting his intentions on Facebook ‘to fight against the sick ideology of Daesh.’ The trial heard he went to join the Kurdish YPG militia in August 2017, after deciding he wanted to combat the ‘evil’ Islamic State. The Old Bailey heard that in diary entries James told how he got ‘a kill’ and was playing his part in the war. He posed with YPG insignia wearing military garb. He first spent time at an Iraqi refugee camp, where another Kurdish group, the PKK, was present, and later at a Syrian YPG training facility. Unlike the YPG, the PKK is classed as a terrorist organisation by the UK, jurors were told. He is accused of receiving training from the PKK, , before going on to fight with the People’s Protection Unit known as the YPG in Syria. The court heard he ‘fuelled violence and devasta-

tion’ by travelling to fight with guns and explosives against Islamic State and his four months in combat was described as ‘terrorism, even if his eventual fighting was against other terrorists.’ The Old Bailey heard Parliament has the power to proscribe groups linked to terrorism worldwide, banning UK citizens from joining or funding them. One of the groups James was allegedly associated with - the PKK - is banned for advocating Kurdish self-rule through political and armed struggle. Halfway through the trial, Mr James was acquitted of a count alleging he prepared for terrorism by taking the steps he did to travel to the Middle East. Prosecutors were not seeking a conviction on the count if he had been solely preparing to fight IS, since they did not define that as terrorism. The judge said there was ‘no evidence’ of any other intention. The case against Mr James on the two YPG charges was put on the basis he had joined a wider struggle than the battle against IS. The jury was unable to reach unanimous or majority verdicts on either count.

and his dog what You don’t know you’ve got till it’s gone!

Stormers celebrate a successful year

with JIM SHARPE

I HOPE you enjoyed last week's Dog because I’m sailing back to New Brighton - briefly - again this week. Firstly, a confession - I should think I am covered by the Statute of Limitations on this. In the days when my late brother George and I were old enough to venture forth on our own, if you used any of the ferries from the Pier Head, whether to Birkenhead, Seacombe or New Brighton, you did not pay to board at the Pier Head, you paid at the far end of your journey. Now whether we worked this out for ourselves, or whether we picked it up from the local scallies, I do not know. But on occasion (and to be fair it only occurred a very few times), we would board the ferry for New Brighton and enjoy our mini cruise down the Mersey, exploring the boat and visiting the buffet. But on those occasions we had in fact no intention actually to set foot in New Brighton at all. For as the ferry pulled onto the pier there, George and I were to be found - or hopefully not found - hiding away in some far corner of the vessel. The procedure was that when all the passengers should have trooped off to pay their fares, a crew member would scour the boat to ensure everybody was gone. So if you could evade this bloke until the folk boarding for the return journey started to embark (which they did very soon) you were ‘safe’ for another ‘free’ ride back to Liverpool. The drawback being of course that though you had been to New Brighton you never actually set foot in the place. But you did have a pleasant hour or so cruise under your belt. Confession time over - I’m not exactly proud of what we did, but I reckon we did very little harm either. And now, of course, you couldn’t do that anyway. These days, sensibly, you have to pay before you get aboard, and in any case you can no longer get a ferry to New Brighton. That is because the pier there became unsafe, and the then Wallasey Corporation (I think) who then operated the sailings to New Brighton and Seacombe, would not or could not stump up the cash to save not only the ferry, but also quite possibly New Brighton’s last chance as a holiday destination. And talking of council’s not saving

ONE MAN and his DOG with JIM SHARPE

things, with hindsight it would surely have been a good long-term investment for Liverpool Corporation to have seen fit (as it very nearly did) to pay for the new decking necessary to keep the overhead railway in operation. True, original purpose of providwithitsDAVID SIMISTER ing transport for the dockers to and www.lifeoncars.co.uk from work disappeared with the opening of the Seaforth container dock - but the modern Liverpool waterfront, with its tourist-and leisure orientated outlook, would most certainly have benefited from the ‘overhead.’ It works in London - and they had to start from withscratch. Likewise, it just might have been DAVID SIMISTER prudent to retain the old Riverside www.lifeoncars.co.uk railway station, which until certainly my living memory, could still be used to bring boat trains right up to their passenger ’s destination. Yes, the long distance liners have become a thing of the past - but Liverpool now boasts a new cruise terminal and perhaps if Riverside station was still operative it could have been used as an added attraction to people boarding for the start of a cruise from the city? I reckon the old saying, ‘You don’t know what you have ‘till it’s gone’, is absolutely correct. I’m sure everyone has something in which they are interested which they wish they had visited many years ago. Even, going back to where I started, the Mersey Ferries. One major attraction for me was the ferry ‘Wallasey ’. She was far older than any of the other boats plying to New Brighton a genuine steamer in fact. And she owed her longevity largely to the fact that she was the largest vessel Wallasey ferries owned, and at peak hours, or particularly at busy summer weekends, was just the thing to shift the crowds wanting to go to New Brighton. Both New Brighton’s funfair and the ferry Wallasey are long gone though I hear there are plans afoot to revive New Brighton as a holiday destination.

Man was paid £100 to post £44,000 worth of drugs to Scotland Report by Lynda Roughley A MAN from Litherland who was paid £100 to post a half kilo drugs package worth £44,000 to an Aberdeen dealer has been jailed for 30 months. Colin Gates, 27, of Daisy Mews, had moved out of his family home after tensions arose when he lost his job as a mechanic and this led to him sofa surfing before ending up living in a tent in Bootle. This “sea change” in his fortunes was a “dramatic fall from grace for someone who seemingly had everything going for him at his age,” said his lawyer John Rowan. “He became homeless, had lost his employment and was unable to claim benefits as he was living in a tent. He was at a very low ebb, depressed feeling suicidal and self-harming,” he said. Liverpool Crown Court heard on Wednesday, April 10 that his agreement to post the package containing £44,000 worth of crack cocaine and heroin was a “serious escalation” in his offending which previously was just for cannabis possession for which he was fined. “He describes it as the worse mistake in his life. He is ashamed and bitterly regrets becoming involved,” said Mr Rowan, as Gates sat in the dock wiping away tears. He said the rift in the strong family relationship has since been repaired and his parents, sister and partner were in the public gallery, some also crying. Gates, who now works for a window company, pleaded guilty to two charges of supplying drugs. Michael Stephenson, prosecuting, said that on April 24, 2017 Gates posted the package at the Lorne Road post office, in Waterloo, to an address in Aberdeen. He had sent the drugs package as a special delivery and without the sender's address. “When that item arrived at the sorting office in Fraserburgh concern arose about its contents, particularly - embarrassingly - when they observed it had been posted in Liverpool.” After a sniffer dog gave a positive response to the package, it was opened and was found to contain 119 plastic bags of crack cocaine and 73 similar bags of heroin, all inside two jiffy bags. The crack, which was 55% pure, had a street value of £28,200 and the heroin was worth £16,800. Police Scotland initially investigated and sent the case to Merseyside Police in May last year and Gates, whose fingerprint was on one of the jiffy bags, voluntarily attended a police station in October. When interviewed he said “he was down and out and had agreed to post if for £100 for an unknown male.” Jailing him Judge Rachel Smith pointed out, “You must have been trusted to an extent to deal with that quantity of drugs and the intended recipient who was a middle tier drug dealer in Scotland.”

LITHERLAND Remyca Football Club will mark 60 years since it was founded with a special event. The non-league outfit, whose first team play in The North West Counties Football League, was formed in 1959 by Ken and Bill Edwards. The club has come a long way since its humble beginnings and in recent years Remyca has become one of the largest community clubs on Merseyside with more 30 teams made up of boys and girls aged from six years up to Veterans. To help celebrate the 60th anniversary, an event will be held at The Park Hotel, in Netherton, on Saturday, June 15 with a special dinner. Remyca chairman Don Rimmer said: “There is much to celebrate. This club has always been a strong presence and force in grass roots football locally. “In recent times it has grown and developed as a true community club. “In this landmark year we are keen to bring together players, former players, supporters and indeed anyone who has been involved in the club over the years. It will be a night of reunion, celebra-

One of the earliest pictures of Litherland Remyca’s first team.

tion, nostalgia and fun.” Formed in 1959 in Seaforth, the team later became the Bootle Church Lads Brigade before adopting the Remyca name in the early 1960s. The name is derived from associations with the 'REM' social club, in Stanley Road, Bootle, and the Bootle YMCA. The Football Association recently awarded Remyca the ‘Community Charter Standard’ status, recognising their work in the local community. The club play their home matches at Litherland Sports Park. Anyone interested in attending the special dinner is asked to email chairman@remyca.co.uk or call Don Rimmer on 07801 703 875. Tickets cost £30 for a three course meal and entertainment.

A YOUNG fencer from Crosby fought his way to a bronze medal at a national competition. Michael Neophytou was competing in the Under 10s category of the National Elite Epee Series Event 2, held recently in Peterborough. The Merchant Taylors' School pupil was ranked seventh going into the direct elimina-

tion rounds and he didn't disappoint spectators with some impressive displays. He won his first elimination fight with a comfortable 10-2 victory, which put him through to the quarter final. Here, Michael won 6-3 against last year’s national number one ranked fencer, but sadly he fell short in the semi-final when he was narrowly beaten 10-7. It meant Michael returned home with a bronze medal, and it also pushed him up to first position in the overall Under 10s rankings.

Health services still available over Easter SEFTON residents will still be able to access medical services during Easter, despite GP practices being closed for the holiday. Health professionals are reminding people to ensure they use the right NHS service for them, should they or their family members become unwell over the holiday weekend (from Good Friday, April 19 to Easter Monday, April 22) and also during the first May bank holiday (Monday, May 6). Susanne Lynch, head of medicines management at NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group said: “We recommend taking advantage of all the services available at your local pharmacy for any minor health-related concerns and if you need a GP appointment to think about using the extended access service. “Pharmacists are highly trained and are able to offer clinical advice and over the counter medicines to manage a range of minor health concerns, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, tummy troubles,

aches and pains and many more. “Most pharmacies will have private consultation rooms where they can advise you on self-care treatments and give you advice on your medication.” People can also use the extended access GP service. Fiona Taylor, chief officer at the CCGs in Sefton, added: “The extended access GP service launched last October in Sefton and has been popular. “Open 365 days a year the service is really useful over bank holiday weekends. If you do become unwell and your GP practice is closed you can call 111 to book an appointment with your nearest service as long as you are registered with a GP practice in Sefton.” Pharmacy opening times will differ over the bank holidays. There will be normal opening times on Saturday (April 20), but a reduced service on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Easter Monday and Monday 6 May.

Martin Mere news New Pond Zone opens to inspire next generation of conservationists Visitors to WWT Martin Mere will now be able to get up close to lots of aquatic life as our brand new £250,000 Pond Zone has officially opened. The new attraction, generously supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery through Postcode Animal Trust and other funders, is made up of four raised-dipping ponds and an existing natural pond. The raised dipping ponds have been built with insects in mind - they’re made out of more natural materials, are much larger than the old, concrete ponds on site and all have aquatic plants. Alongside the existing natural pond at ground level and a netted cover preventing birds from accessing the water, it’s hoped that the new ponds will encourage a wider range of insects and small amphibians such as newts and frogs. With latest research showing that over 40% of the world’s insect species may become extinct in the next few decades, it’s more important than ever to try and protect existing insect species and encourage others to thrive. Here at Martin Mere, we’re hopeful that our new Pond Zone will do just that. As well as encouraging insects,

the Pond Zone will be used to inspire the next generation of conservationists. A new timber classroom features a large teaching space for school visits, technical equipment to enhance the pond dipping experience, magnetic pond profiles on the walls for teaching and screens to project findings. Visitors to the centre during weekends and half term will also be able to get involved in pond dipping. All the equipment needed to uncover a world of incredible underwater life will be available; nets, trays, magnifying glasses, identity cards and our friendly Learning Team will be on hand to help. Centre Manage Nick Brooks said: “Pond dipping is one of the favourite activities that families enjoy at Martin Mere. They get their net and delve into what is now artificial concrete ponds to see what creatures they can find, this new development will allow families to pond dip in a natural setting and it is going to be a great new attraction for us.” For further information about the new Pond Zone, visit wwt.org.uk/martin-mere.

The crackdown was part of Liverpool City Council’s commitment to ensure passenger safety in the city and officers served suspension notices on 48 vehicles following routine inspections throughout the month. A further 45 vehicles were issued with defect notices for minor faults and ordered to make repairs within seven days. In total 25, of the cabs taken off the road were licensed in Liverpool whilst 23 were licensed with other local authorities, including Sefton. The city council has pledged to protect the public through a series of ongoing safety campaigns, which include the crackdown on unsafe cabs. Licensing officers are also working to prevent unscrupulous drivers breaking the rules through plying for hire, cherry-picking fares and failing to use their meters, particularly on match days. At the recent Liverpool home game against Tottenham Hotspur, three private hire drivers were reported for plying for hire without a licence to do so. City manager Kevin Johnson said: “The taxi and private hire industry plays an important part in Liverpool’s local economy and provide an extremely valuable service to the public. People who visit or live and work in Liverpool have the right to travel around the city in safety and be secure in the knowledge that they are not being ripped off. “Thankfully the vast majority of our drivers play by the rules and provide a first-class service but the message to anyone who thinks they can come to Liverpool and flaunt the rules the message is – you will be caught.” Throughout March, a further 37 drivers were given written warnings for violations such as not wearing their badges, not having their taxi licence plates fixed properly and failing to act in a civil manner. A total of 15 drivers were prosecuted by the council for offences such as plying for hire. This means when a private hire vehicle picks passengers off the street who have not prebooked the journey in advance, or if a hackney carriage driver has picked passengers up outside of the area they are licensed with. During March the city council Licensing Committee also revoked one private hire driver’s licence for drink-driving offences.

A PRISON worker from Waterloo who helps offenders turn their lives around after they leave their cells has been given a prestigious award by Princess Anne. Adam Connolly, who works for Sefton Council for Voluntary Service, based in HMP Liverpool prison, is a project coordinator who helps reintegrate former inmates back into the local community. He was one of only 20 people from the UK who was presented with a prestigious commendation by The Princess Royal at St James’s Palace in London.

Adam Connolly received the commendation from the Butler Trust, which has The Princess Royal as its patron. The Butler Trust holds the annual awards to recognise outstanding service by staff and volunteers working in UK prisons, probation, and youth justice settings. In the audience to help congratulate Adam was The Secretary of State for Justice, David Gauke MP, and Prison Minister, Rory Stewart. After the presentations, Princess Anne talked to Adam and his fellow winners over afternoon tea in the Palace State Rooms. Angela White, chief executive of Sefton CVS added: “I want to personally congratulate Adam, the team, and the project’s

volunteers for their dedication to supporting people to turn their lives around. “I am proud of the achievements of the Merseyside Offender Mentoring Project and I look forward to its continued success in the future under Adam’s excellent stewardship.” The chair of the Butler Trust’s independent awarding panel, Sir Michael Harrison said: “Adam has shown real leadership in his mentoring and befriending project, and his tireless efforts have had a transformative impact on reintegrating offenders into the Merseyside community. “His service meaningfully supports people in the way they need it most, when they need it most.”

ENTERTAINMENT

Former EastEnders star appearing in Sweeney Todd NICK Bagnall’s anarchic production of the musical Sweeney Todd has opened at the Liverpool Everyman. Former EastEnders star Kacey Ainsworth is playing the role of Mrs Lovett. Known for her performance as Little Mo in the soap. Kacey has also appeared in her fourth series of the ITV detective drama Grantchester. This is Kacey’s first production at the Everyman. Dean Nolan, who was part of the Everyman Company in 2017, has returned. He played the roles of Motel, Mercutio and Sluplianek in the 2017 productions of Fiddler on the Roof, Romeo & Juliet and Conquest of the South Pole. Dean is playing rival barber Pirelli. Paul Duckworth is Judge Turpin, following his performances in Everyman Company 2018 shows Paint Your Wagon and Othello. Paul is returning to the Everyman after his recent role in the Royal Court’s production of Scouse Cinderella over Christmas. Playing the Beadle is Mark Rice-Oxley. The Merseyside actor returns to the Everyman

for the first time since performing in the 2014 production of Bright Phoenix. Keziah Joseph is cast in the role of Johanna Barker. Keziah recently visited the Playhouse in 2017, playing Mowgli in a major UK touring production of The Jungle Book. The role of Tobias is portrayed by Shiv Rabheru, Bryan Parry is Anthony and Emma Dears completes casting as the Beggar Woman. They are joined by Liam Tobin, who plays Sweeney Todd in the production. Before the production started Nick Bagnall, associate director at Everyman & Playhouse, said: “I’m really excited to be working with this group of actors for Sweeney Todd. It will be great to see old Company members, as well as some new faces, on the Everyman stage. “It’s a show that packs a real political punch and the music is incredible, but also the story ’s so fascinating – it’s gruesome, dangerous, dark and funny. “Most productions of Sweeney Todd have around 25 to 30 cast members, but

Popular production inspired by movie coming to Empire BILL Kenwright’s production of Ghost the musical is on a UK Tour and is coming to the Liverpool Empire from Tuesday, April 23 to Saturday, April 27. It is inspired by the movie, and this reimagining has an expanded book, new music and original staging. Walking back to their apartment

our ensemble will include just nine talented actors who can sing for this production. Adding to the fact that we will be performing it in the round, this will be a stripped-back,

rough, hard-edged, soulful and a show tailor-made for Everyman audiences.” Sweeney Todd will be performed at the Everyman until Saturday, May 18.

The final episode of The Grand Tour focused on the legacy of the Ford Mondeo

Studio motoring TV is on its way out... NEVER has the sale of a second-hand tent seemed quite so emotional. If you haven’t watched the last episode of The Grand Tour yet (and you don’t mind forking out for Amazon Prime) then you might want to put your copy of The Champion down for an hour, watch it and then come back, because it’s really worth catching up with. In a nutshell, the motoring telly giant that was the Clarkson/Hammond/May trio came to an end – except it sort of didn’t. After an extended piece bemoaning the Ford Mondeo’s steady slide from the top of the car sales charts a genuinely emotional Jeremy announced that there would be no shows involving him taking the mickey out of the latest motors alongside his two mates in front of a studio audience, either for The Grand Tour or back on Top Gear. An extended montage of what they’d been up to on both shows followed – including everything from Richard Hammond’s many crashes to the Reliant Robin space shuttle – duly followed, giving the trio’s work the sort of send off a certain incident involving cold meat and a late night at a hotel a couple of years ago denied them. The only snag is that it was all much ado about nothing, because the three of them then went on to say they are going to carry on working together on

The Grand Tour, albeit in a new format that focuses solely on their big globetrotting adventures. Read between the lines, though, and I reckon that there’s a wider truth; that the studio-based school of motoring telly they pioneered is finally on the way out. I’ve written before that a lot of Top Gear now feels tired trying to hang on to elements popularised more than 15 years ago and that I’ve already predicted the next series, fronted by two celebs who aren’t practised motoring writers, is going to be awful. Which is a shame, because the one that’s just finished was one of the best yet, and that includes comparing it to ones presented by the old trio. But in a streaming-obsessed world where you can watch everything on demand simply rocking up in an old aircraft hanger and then packing in an audience around a few strategically-parked supercars just seems a bit, well, to be honest, a bit old hat now. I’ll happily predict that Top Gear will eventually follow suit and go for a rethink in a few years’ time, and might even be parked up altogether.

Bucks hit five to set up crunch clash with leaders in title battle Charnock Richard 0 Bootle 5 BOOTLE collected their 18th consecutive league victory on Saturday and gained two crucial points on their title rivals, writes Connor O’Neill. The win put the Bucks within three points of North West Counties Premier Division leaders City Of Liverpool FC who could only draw. Both teams have only three games to play and the two are set to face each other in what is set to be a massive game on Easter Monday, with Bootle having a far better goal difference. Bootle produced one of their best performances of the season in Lancashire on Saturday and opening the scoring on 16 minutes. Ste Jones and Carl Peers combined before the Bucks number 10 saw his cross/shot find the corner of the net from an acute angle. The home side rallied and twice went close to levelling. First, Ryan Jones, the division’s Goalkeeper of the Month, produced a stunning block to deny Carl Grimshaw - before Joe Noblet fired the rebound over from close-range. But Bootle continued to pick Charnock Richard off on the counter, with Millington seeing an effort beaten away by Kyle Haslam in the Charnock goal - before the midfielder dragged an effort wide. At the other end, the Bucks were forced to withstand a period of sustained pressure as the hosts finished the half strongly. In added time of the first half their defensive efforts were rewarded when Ryan Cox doubled his side’s lead. Ste Jones' corner was headed

clear before Liam Loughlin's mishit shot found its way back to Jones on the corner of the box. The forward then cut back inside before chipping the ball to the back post where the unmarked Cox headed home. Bootle started the second-half with real intent and went close to extending their lead in the opening minute. First, Peers was denied by Haslam from closerange - before Jamie Clark saw an effort blocked by Spencer Bibby. At the other end, Jones once again denied Grimshaw, this time getting down low to push the Charnock skipper’s header away. But in the space of a minute, the Bucks turned the game on its head. Goal number three arrived when Peers turned Loughlin’s free-kick home at the back-post. Less than 60 seconds later three became four. From the kick-off, the hosts gave the ball away cheaply, and after a string of passes, Kieran Halligan drove forward before finding the bottom corner of the net with a daisy-cutter from the edge of the box. Further chances followed for the Bucks with Haslam denying Dale Korie-Butler on two separate occasions - before Millington fired over. With five minutes from time, goal number five arrived when Jones brushed off the challenge of Ryan Schofield before coolly chipping the ball over the onrushing Haslam. Bootle travel to Squires Gate on Saturday and a win would set up a massive game on Monday against City of Liverpool. One thing is for certain, it’s game on in the title race with three games to go.

Smith hits hat-trick in win for Maghull Maghull 3 Hale 1 A WAYNE Smith hat-trick gave Maghull victory on Saturday. It was a typical end of season encounter in front of a large crowd with neither side having anything to play for, far too many passes went astray and possession being relinquished too cheaply.

Corness opened the scoring for the visitors after 15 minutes only for Smith to level matters with a fierce shot which found the net via a deflection off Joel Richardson. The striker grabbed his second success with a headed effort before the break and then went on to seal victory for the hosts with his third in the second half.

Northern host Rainhill in season opener THE 2019 Liverpool & District Cricket Competition season gets underway this coming weekend with all our local sides in action across the Easter weekend, writes Glenn Wallworth. In the Premier Division on Saturday, April 20 (1pm start), defending champions Northern play host to Rainhill, while Bootle travel over the water to New Brighton and Ormskirk go to Orrell Red Triangle. In the First Division, there’s a local derby at Sea Cop where Fleetwood Hesketh host Ainsdale. In the Second Division, Maghull start their campaign off with a home fixture against Southport Trinity, while Burscough play hosts to St Helens Town and Hightown St Mary’s welcome Parkfield Liscard to Sandy Lane. Meanwhile on Bank Holiday Monday, April 22 Formby will entertain newly promoted Southport & Birkdale at the Cricket Path (1pm start).

Maghull Youth lost in the league’s Development Cup at the semi final stage beaten 4-2 by third division outfit Burscough Dynamo in which Nick Kay bagged a brace for Maghull. Tonight (Wednesday) Maghull host Chester Nomads (6.30pm kick off) and on Saturday Maghull Reserves entertain promotion hopefuls Capenhurst Villa at 3pm.

Mbalanda strikes again to earn a priceless point

Marine 1 Buxton 1 MARINE picked up a priceless point to boost their survival hopes after in-form Brett Mbalanda scored his second goal in recent weeks. The result left the Mariners three points above the Evo-Stik Premier Division relegation zone with three matches to play, one of them being at home to Bamber Bridge on Monday afternoon which could be a massive game as they currently third from bottom in the table. Goalkeeper Joe Hilton was forced into several impressive saves by a physical Buxton side in a first half which saw chances at both ends of the pitch Charley Edge, Marine Player of the Month for March, fashioned his team a few chances from the flanks, but the home side couldn’t convert. Buxton defender Josh Meade was forced off just before half-time after a collision with Edge,

Tom Dean coming on to replace him. The Mariners took the lead midway through the second half. John Pritchard looped the ball over the head of Hilton from the left side of the six-yard box and new Marine signing Mbalanda, showing pace and power, notched his second goal of the week, lashing home from inside the box. Both sides pushed on in an attempt to win the game, Edge going close a couple of times in the closing minutes, most significantly with a freekick narrowly over the bar. However, the match finished a point apiece. Marine now travel to Basford United this Saturday before the crunch Easter Monday clash with Bamber Bridge at the Marine Travel Arena. These games are all the more important for Marine as they face tough game at leaders Farsley for the their final league fixture on Saturday, April 27.

Euphoria for Waterloo as they storm to victory to ensure safety Manchester 12 Firwood Waterloo 40 EUPHORIA mixed with relief summed up the emotion on the terraces after Firwood Waterloo not only avoided relegation but despatched Manchester 12-40 in no uncertain fashion, writes Geoff Lightfoot. This was without doubt one of the most important games for a number of seasons for both clubs with relegation the ultimate destination for the losing side. “We had a feeling this campaign was going to go down to the wire but to be in a ‘death or glory’ final match was going to test our resolve to the full,” declared head coach Stuart Turner. “This has been one of the toughest campaigns I have been involved in and for a long spell with just three points separating six clubs, all of whom could have gone down,

Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

fighing it out there has been no let up.” However it was the home side who made the better start with a try out wide but with the Firwood Waterloo pack taking some control Josh Critchley was forced over from a catch and drive. Darragh O’Brien added the conversion to give the Merseysiders the lead and with back row Alex Tenev breaking through, O'Brien also tagging on the extras Firwood Waterloo took a 5-14 lead in at the interval. In the second period a poor clearance by Manchester was scooped up and run back, the counter-attack creating the opportunity for Sean Colbourne to cross for the third and with the pack ‘turning the screw’ Luke Clifford saw the gap to nip over for the fourth and the bonus point, O'Brien on target with both conversions. Manchester came back with a converted try but in an effort to get back into the game star-

www.champnews.com

ted to give the ball some 'air' testing the Firwood Waterloo defence. The defence held strong and from turn over ball Tom Lavelle crossed for the fifth converted by O'Brien with Clifford rounding off a satisfactory afternoon's work with a sixth and his second again off turn over ball. “Obviously we are delighted with the result and that we will be playing in this league again next term but full credit must go the whole squad who when it mattered came up with the right result,” Turner emphasised. “We know we are a good side but we need to be much more consistent as there were games this season that we could and perhaps should have won. “However the whole squad has been on a massive learning curve and I am sure we will come out the stronger next season.” Firwood Waterloo will now take a break and return for training the first week in July.

Stock up on things you need before the holidays start to treat minor illnesses, such as: · Headaches · Fever · Sore throats · Coughs and colds

Local pharmacies offer expert advice on health issues without the need for an appointment. Make sure you are up to date with your repeat prescriptions from your GP before weekends and bank holidays - but remember not to over order.
