Huge turn out for the funeral of youngster

Prince Harry and Megan Markle will get married at Windsor Castle on Saturday

Hats off to Royal wedding! BOOTLE traders and businesses have been getting in the mood for the Royal wedding after creating their own hats for the ceremony! The competition, organised by the Strand Shopping Centre, tasked 25 shops to come up with their own unique design for the perfect wedding hat. The idea, called A Hat Fit for a Royal Wedding, saw those taking part use basic craft materials to create a hat that reflected the name of their business, a product or service.

MAN STABBED IN LIDL STORE Horrified shoppers saw attack take place in busy supermarket Report by Tom Martin

A wedding hat design by Warren James jewellers



SHOPPERS have spoken of their horror after a man was stabbed in a busy supermarket. The shocking attack happened at around 4.30pm last Saturday afternoon when a man in his 50s was stabbed in an aisle at Lidl, on Marsh Lane. Brave, quick-thinking staff were able to detain the attacker until police arrived to arrest him. Officers later confirmed a 21year-old man from Bootle was arrested on suspicion of Section 18 wounding. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to a puncture wound to his leg and his condition was described as stable. A knife was later recovered from the shop. Police spoke to horrified shoppers and store staff who saw the attack take place. Passers-by, who watched as police and paramedics rushed to the scene, posted what they witnessed on social media. One person on Facebook, said: “Bootle is getting worse for knife crime and you know it’s bad when people are getting stabbed in supermarkets.� Continued inside

RIMROSE Valley campaigners are to hold their first protest on Sunday (May 20) ahead of preliminary works to build a dual carriageway through the country park. The event will be held from 10am at the Beach Road entrance to the park as locals look to demonstrate against plans by Highways England to construct the docks link road. A spokesperson for the Save Rimrose Valley group said: “Please join us to let everyone know how much you care about Rimrose Valley. “If you've made any signs and banners, please bring them along - they will look great in any pictures we take!” Meanwhile, campaigners say the new rail freight service from Peel Ports will only have a “minimal impact” on reducing lorry traffic in the area after the Champion reported the news last week. The group say it is a “positive step” but more needs to be done to cut back on the number of vehicles travelling between Switch Island and the docks. They have also hit out at Liverpool City Region metro mayor Steve Rotheram for getting involved in the publicity around the new rail freight service, after claiming he has previously shunned the campaigners and their pleas for support. Stuart Bennett of the Save Rimrose Valley Campaign said: “Rimrose Valley Friends obviously welcome any measures which help reduce the HGV traffic on our roads so this is a positive and potentially significant step. “It shows what can be achieved and we hope more schemes like this could go a long way to removing the need for a highly damaging road through Rim-

rose Valley. But we fear that on its own, this service will have only a minimal impact on the traffic which passes through Seaforth. In our meeting with Peel Ports in March, they told us that a huge amount of their freight has to be delivered by road. “We repeat our calls for Peel Ports to work with Highways England to properly explore other solutions to access to and from the Port of Liverpool than the one being proposed. “The current plans, should they go ahead, will destroy our last remaining piece of countryside in this heavily built up area. “Better solutions are out there, which would both alleviate congestion and improve existing living conditions for residents along the A5036 corridor. “It is interesting to see our Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram, finally getting involved with access to the Port of Liverpool. Hopefully, now he is engaging with this issue. His stance to date has been disappointing to say the least.”

Hats fit for a Royal wedding! From page 1

To view all 25 hats and vote for a favourite, visit the Strand's Facebook page. Lucy Kirk, marketing manager of the Strand Shopping Centre said: “We have been amazed at the creativity and imagination displayed by our retailers – some of the hats are truly inspirational. “This competition is a very local celebration of an international event and we wish the couple every happiness. “It is also anticipated that some of the retailers may wear their creation in store on the day of the wedding.” The Champion reported recently how there are three roads in Bootle which have officially registered with Sefton Council to stage Royal Wedding street parties. These are Exeter Road, Leicester Road and Menai Road. This is the most from any other neighbouring town in the borough.

Man arrested after store knife attack From page 1 Another person added: “What a world we are living in when this can happen with families shopping on a Saturday afternoon.” Chief Inspector Mike Barrett said: “I want to make it absolutely clear that Merseyside Police will not tolerate the use of knives as weapons on our streets, and the force is determined to stop knife crime from causing fear and harm in our communities. “It is clearly unacceptable for people to behave in this way in a supermarket, as people simply go about their daily business, and we would appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident to contact police.” Anyone who witnessed the incident or saw anything suspicious that could help Merseyside police with their investigation is asked to contact call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. A spokesperson for Lidl said: “We can confirm that the police were contacted following an incident at our Marsh Lane store on Saturday and we are supporting them in their investigation.”

Housing plan for historic former waterworks site Report by Tom Martin AN historic site in Bootle which used to be a waterworks dating back to 1799, could be transformed with the arrival of 13 houses. The patch of land, on Well Lane, used to take in water from a number of wells in the town before it closed down in 1887. The building was called ‘Bruce and Hyslop – Engineers and Iron Founders’, but it has been left derelict for a number of years. A developer has applied to Sefton Council for permission to use the site to build 13 houses, which they claim would “transform a derelict eyesore”. A similar planning application was rejected last year when a developer wanted to build 14 houses. The local authority said at the time that “there is no objection in principle to a residential development on the site. However, the design and layout of the proposed dwellings does not relate well”. This latest planning application states: “From the vacant and former site of Bruce and Hyslop – Engineers and Iron Founders – which now stands in a dereliction on Well Lane, the proposal is to redevelop the site for residential use, consisting of 13 three-bedroom terrace dwellings. “Principally established as an industrial area, the site today is predominantly residential and is sited in close proximity to Bootle town centre.

The derelict Bruce and Hyslop – Engineers and Iron Founders

Being within an established residential area, the proposed site is well served with local amenities, schools, independent shops and a larger retail store in close proximity. “The design positively responds to the site constraints with a legible development, where there is a clear impression of the site layout and clear movement options for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists within the site. “Transforming a derelict eyesore, siting of the proposed terraces is reflective of the grain, scale and character of the surrounding residential areas, in the interest of visual amenity and in creating an appropriate sustainable sense of place.” Between 1799 and 1887 the site was a water works receiving water from a number of wells in

Bootle, including one on the site. On the site the water passed through sand filter beds and was then pumped to supply the city of Liverpool. The water works ceased operation in 1887 when Liverpool began to draw its supply from North Wales. In around 1913 large sheds were erected on the site, within which castings were made in deep sand beds covering much of the site. During this period the well was largely filled in by sand from the foundry. The two frontage buildings were continued to be used as engineering workshops and associated offices. The remains of the foundry buildings are still in existence but in a totally derelict condition.

Man breached suspended prison sentence terms A BOOTLE man who was given a suspended prison sentence for assault ended up in jail anyway after being involved in a drunken altercation with police just hours after leaving court. As Geoffrey Kewn, 44, of Stanley Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on May 9, where he pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly, it was heard he stuck his middle finger up at a passing police car while he was drinking at South Park in Bootle. Andrew Page, prosecuting, said he had been given an eight week custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months, at Liverpool Magistrates Court on April 20. After officers went to remonstrate with him for making the

By our Court Reporter rude gesture, Mr Page said Kewn was aggressive and shouting abuse even though there where children nearby. “You are out to get me you f***ing rats,” he was said to have told officers. Despite being warned about his behaviour, Kewn continued being aggressive and used other offensive language, Mr Page said, and he was ultimately arrested for being drunk and disorderly. Solicitor Toni Moran said: “This is a regrettable offence on many levels. He has no recollection of holding up his finger. His recollection is that his fin-

ger was being held up against the can. He has no recollection of deliberately making a gesture. “There was no dispute that he had a drink and that he used foul language. But the police officers may have overreacted after they have approached him, he has felt victimised and he has sworn.” The solicitor added: “If he had not been drinking this would not have happened. The reason he was drinking is that he had been dealt with in the court earlier for a more serious matter of assault.” A probation report said Kewn’s probation officer knew he had an issue with alcohol. The legal advisor told the magistrates that they had to

activate his suspended sentence unless it was unjust to do so. The magistrates activ-

ated the sentence in full but ordered no separate penalty for the drunk and disorderly offence.

Dock’s new rail service to carry containers to Scotland is launched Report by Tom Martin

A NEW container rail freight service has left the Port of Liverpool for the first time. It is hoped the service will reduce the number of lorries travelling between Switch Island and the docks. The new freight service provides a seamless route between the quayside at Liverpool and Scotland. Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram launched the departure of the inaugural journey on Tuesday, May 8, which took goods to Mossend terminal in Glasgow for onward delivery to destinations across Scotland. The train was made up of 30 wagons and is expected to carry over 40 containers per trip. The service will be run three days a week by DB Cargo to transport exports destined for global markets. Peel say they want to reduce road haulage miles locally around the Port of Liverpool and in 2015

they launched a rail route between Liverpool and Drax Power Station, shipping biomass pellets to the site in North Yorkshire. Peel Ports container director Jouke Schaap, said: “This underlines our commitment to minimising road haulage miles locally and across the UK. “With a greater emphasis on efficiency and sustainability taking hold of the logistics market in the UK, we are proud to be leading the charge by reigniting freight routes between Scotland and the North West. “Cargo owners are looking for more efficient ways of getting goods from A to B, and this service provides them with a simpler, more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of doing that.” Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, said: “Improving our connectivity, both logistically and digitally, is a key driver in transforming the Liverpool City Region and this new rail freight service is an important part of that process.”

Drug driver is banned from road for 12 months A BOOTLE man on licence after being jailed for a drugrelated offence has appeared in court for drug driving. Stephen Chadwick, 31, of New Fort Way, was stopped by police while driving an Audi car on Crosby Road South, Seaforth on February 25. As he appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on May 9, prosecutor Andrew Page said

that the officer noticed that he smelt strongly of cannabis and that his eyes were red and puffy. “The officer suspected that he may have consumed a drug and driven while under the influence,” Mr Page said. After he failed a roadside drug test, he was subsequently found to have 2.3 micrograms of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (the active

ingredient of cannabis) in his blood, the legal limit being 2mcg/l. Mr Page told the court that Chadwick was jailed for six years in 2014 at Liverpool Crown Court for conspiracy to supply class A drugs. Probation worker Pamela O’Brien said that he was fully compliant with his licence conditions and in full time employment.

Refusing legal representation Mr Chadwick represented himself and said: “I am just here to get banned. It’s my own fault for smoking it. I smoked it the night before and thought I was okay to drive on that day.” The magistrates banned him from driving for 12 months, fined him £233 and ordered that he pay costs and victim surcharge of £115.

Salvation Army band set to light up festival MEMBERS of The Salvation Army’s Liverpool Walton Band are poised to illuminate this year’s LightNight festival. This Friday (May 18), the group will perform a four-band, collective performance called Bold as Brass at the city’s Metropolitan Cathedral. Taking this year’s festival theme of ‘transformation’ as its cue, the quartet of bands will be turning traditional brass music on its head with an eclectic mix of tunes. Described as a “collaborative soundscape” by its producer — and Liverpool Walton Salvation Army’s bandmaster — Peter Elliott; Bold as Brass opens with a performance by new group Incognito Brass Ensemble and features appearances from Allerton Brass and the Formby Band. Liverpool Walton Salvation Army bandmaster, Peter Elliott said: “We’ve been performing at LightNight since 2015 and every year is just as exciting

as the last. It’s such a great opportunity to play music we wouldn’t normally play in some of Liverpool’s most iconic venues; to audiences who may have never heard a brass band sound. “This year’s theme of transformation has given us the chance to show the wide range of styles that can be achieved with brass instruments, from early classics, to show tunes and pop standards. “Then we’ve included transformative tunes as well, like Amazing Grace which describes the transformation of a Christian conversion and also has the added element of its author, John Newton, who was transformed from being involved in the slave trade to a leading abolitionist.” Bold as Brass by the Liverpool Walton Salvation Army Band takes place from 7-9.30pm at Metropolitan Cathedral, Mount Pleasant. The family-friendly performance is completely free to attend.

Residents invited to go ‘plogging’ on the beach

Care home residents create herb garden CARE home residents were inspired by the warm weather to take to the outdoors and create a fragrant herb garden! Those living at The Tithebarn, on Moor Lane, reused an old steamer from the kitchen to plant a variety of herbs such as basil, coriander, sage and chives, as well as strawberry plants. Activities Coordinator Mary Piert said: “In these activities, residents use all five senses, which supports their health and wellbeing and many are reminded of tending to their own gardens they used to have. “We are looking forward to eating our home grown strawberries and our kitchen chef has already made use of the herbs for residents’ meals.”

The activity, known as ‘plogging’, began in Scandinavia and has recently become popular in this country, with an event planned for Crosby beach on Sunday, June 24. It is being organised by Friends of Crosby Beach and St Joseph’s Hospice and those taking part should meet at the coastguard station on Hall Road, Crosby, by 10.30am.

Thousands line streets to pay respects to Alfie Evans

Gerrard and Osman face off in blind football

Report by Tom Martin THOUSANDS of people lined the streets on Monday to pay their respects to Alfie Evans on the day of his funeral. As the funeral cars passed Everton FC’s Goodison Park, locals stood on either side of Walton Lane, between the junctions with Spellow Lane and Queens Drive. Flowers, scarves and messages were tied to railings around the Blues stadium and some chose to clap as the cars travelled along the road on their way to the private funeral service. Before the funeral, Merseyside Police issued a statement to give advice for people looking to pay their respects. Ch Insp Chris Gibson, from Merseyside Police, said Alfie’s parents Tom Evans and Kate James “continue to thank the community” for support. Alfie, from Bootle, was 23-months-old when he passed away on April 28 due to a degenerative brain condition. His case drew international attention when it became the centre of a High Court legal battle over his care. Alfie would have turned two years old on Wednesday, May 9 and hundreds of people paid tribute to him at candlelit vigils organised in a park near Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Banners, balloons, candles, cards and other tributes were left in the park by locals, who also sang songs to remember Alfie. Everton fans also chose to remember Alfie in their own way, with a huge banner unveiled at Goodison Park during their recent league match against Southampton. l Blueblood award to Alfie’s dad. See page 24.

Gerrard and Osman at Anfield Sports and Community Centre

THEY have faced each other plenty of times in Merseyside Derby action, but this time Steven Gerrard and Leon Osman renewed their rivalry in more difficult circumstances after they played football blindfolded. Participants from the LFC Foundation joined Gerrard, Osman and participants from Everton in the Community in a competitive game of blind football at Anfield Sports and Community Centre. The match and training session which preceded it is captured in the latest BT Sport film for the Premier League and BT Disability Initiative: ‘Gerrard and Osman’s Merseyside Derby.’ The short film highlights the inclusive work being delivered as part of the Premier League and BT Disability Initiative. Former Liverpool captain Gerrard and Everton midfielder Osman tried their hand at blind football with blind and visually impaired footballers from Liverpool and Everton’s community programmes, as well as players from Merseyside Blind FC. Gerrard and Osman start the blind football session by learning the basics before taking part in smallsides games, highlighting the collaborative work of the LFC Foundation and Everton in the Community, who facilitate a weekly disability session at the Anfield Sports Community Centre. The session, which is jointly run, receives funding from the Premier League and BT disability initiative. The film premiered on May 5 on BT Sport 1 and highlights how the programme has positively impacted those with visual impairments in the Merseyside area.

However, after much deliberation, first place went to PM Training student Jordan Harrison with a close second place going to Rosena. She said: “I am really glad that I took part in the competition, it was a great experience for me to be able to test my skills and meet new people. I am so happy that I came second, I would like to thank all of my lecturers for all of their support to get me to this standard.” Hugh Baird College Painting and Decorating tutor, Mark Dillon, said: “On behalf of Hugh Baird College I would like to say thank-you to Johnstone’s for hosting their annual competition with us again this year. It’s always great to see our students networking with other students and industry professionals. The work produced was of an exceptional standard and I am sure that all those who took place have a bright future in the industry ahead of them.”

Sefton Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) has been awarded the NHS 70 community partner of the year award, as voted for by staff of NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG. Sefton CVS is an independent charity which aims to ‘support independent, resilient and sustainable communities’ by promoting and assisting the work of voluntary, community and faith (VCF) groups. One of the charity’s objectives is to promote the advancement of health with Sefton, which has seen links created with a variety of groups including the Alzheimer’s Society, Healthwatch Sefton, Sefton Council, as well as NHS South Sefton CCG and NHS Southport and Formby CCG. Some of the highlights from the work Sefton CVS has done with the NHS in Sefton include the Strand by Me community signposting and health shop in the Strand Shopping Centre, in Bootle, the creation of an online dir-

ectory for over 3,500 services delivered by more than 1,000 VCF groups in Sefton and the Sefton Emotional Achievement Service which delivered self-harm prevention and support for 11-25 year olds. It is the first time the CCGs have chosen to recognise a community partner of the year award and it was voted for by members of staff at the CCGs as part of their annual staff awards. Chief executive of the CCGs, Fiona Taylor, said: “Sefton CVS is an incredibly important partner for us in terms of working with the local community. The NHS is increasingly looking to community groups to make sure the health services we commission are joined up with other services and deliver the most benefit for local people and the team at Sefton CVS is an invaluable part of that. I am delighted that our staff have chosen to formally recognise its work through this award.” Sefton CVS chief executive, Angela White OBE, said: “We are delighted to be presented with this award, which is made all the more special because votes have come from staff and colleagues at NHS South Sefton CCG & NHS Southport & Formby CCG.”

Ex-police officer to pay back £370k made from selling personal data after road accidents Report by Tom Martin A FORMER police officer has been ordered to pay back £367,772.50 after he was jailed for selling personal data from traffic accident logs. Nigel Mungur, 40, from Waterloo, a former immediate response officer with Lancashire Constabulary, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office, conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office, money laundering and unauthorised access to a com- Nigel Mungar. puter in November 2015. An investigation launched in 2014 by Lancashire Constabulary ’s Professional Standards, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Team found Mungur had accessed over 20,000 accident logs over seven years, selling the information on to John Helton, 37, who worked for Liverpool based law firm GT Law. The investigation followed a number of complaints from members of the public that they had been contacted by the law firm to discuss making a compensation claim. However they had not disclosed their personal details to anyone outside the police. A Proceeds of Crime hearing at Chester Crown Court on Tuesday, May 8 heard Mungur had made more than £367,000 from the scam. His lawyer argued he did not have the means to repay the money however a Confiscation Order will remain in place until the full amount has been repaid. John Helton had previously been given a

£115,000 Confiscation Order. Det Supt Pete Simm, head of Lancashire Constabulary’s Professional Standards Department, said: “This sends out a clear message that no-one working within Lancashire Constabulary will be allowed to profit from corruption. “Police officers and staff are hugely privileged in terms of the data they have access to and the public should be able to trust the integrity of that data. “Nigel Mungur blatantly breached the trust placed in him as a serving police officer.” In October 2017, Mungur was jailed for five years for his offences at Chester Crown Court. This was later reduced on appeal to four years. Helton was sentenced to two years, suspended for two years, after admitting conspiring with Mungur to convert criminal property (money laundering) and commit unauthorised access to a computer, and Mungur’s wife Nicola Mungur, also a former police officer with Lancashire Constabulary, was handed a conditional discharge after admitting a data protection offence. Both Mungur and his wife were dismissed from the force in March 2016 for gross misconduct. Ben Fletcher, director of the Insurance Fraud Bureau, which assisted the investigation, said: “This result is another victory in this shocking case. “It is only right that money he used to fund his extravagant lifestyle is recuperated back, hitting him exactly where it hurts. Our message is clear, punishment doesn’t stop at a prison sentence, you will pay for your crimes in every possible way.”

Police vans at the scene outside the post office shortly after the robbery.

Security guard attacked in robbery outside post office

TWO men attacked a security guard and robbed a cash box from outside a post office on College Road, Crosby at noon on Tuesday, May 15. Police arrive soon after and taped off the area. With College Road being busy at the time, and plenty of people posting about the incident on social media, police are appealing for witnesses to get in touch. The security guard was treated at the scene but he is not believed to have serious injuries. Enquiries are ongoing to establish how the men arrived and made off from the scene. CCTV, witness and forensic enquiries are ongoing at the scene and anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is asked to come forward, either by messaging @MerpolCC, call 101 with reference 268, or @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Couple tasted music scene success - now people rave about their care company! A MUSICIAN who saw one of her records go platinum has received another accolade after the home care company she runs in Liverpool, and which cares for people in the Crosby and Litherland area, was rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Kathryn Dion-King, from Maghull, starred on the 2 Funky 2 single ‘Brothers & Sisters’, first released in 1993. It became a rave anthem and is still be popular today, particularly in Liverpool. She now runs Maghull based Home Instead Senior Care Liverpool Central and North with her husband, Andrew Erskine, whose background is also in the music industry. Andrew toured the world as a band manager, working with big names including the Beastie Boys, Fat Boy Slim and The Prodigy. He and Kathryn met when he became her manager in 1993. The pair say they made the move from music to caring when they decided to look for a business that

would allow them to work together again. Kathryn said: “We looked at a number of different options, but when we came across the opportunity to open a Home Instead office in Liverpool it really appealed to us. “We really liked the whole ethos of the business – it seemed very compassionate and understanding, and gave us the opportunity to improve the lives of older people in the area. “Both of us had successful music careers but we are so glad we found Home Instead. It is amazing to be able to make such a difference to people’s lives.” Home Instead Senior Care specialises in providing at-home care for the elderly. Inspectors from the CQC described the service as ‘exceptionally caring’ and said staff ‘showed a genuine interest and a very caring attitude towards the people they supported’. They were also commended for the training programme provided to staff, which equips them with all the knowledge and skills needed, and the ongoing support systems in place.

Northern Rail set to be hit by two more 24-hour strikes Report by Henry James NORTHERN Rail staff are to stage two more one-day strikes later this month in the dispute over the future role of guards on trains. The strikes will take place on Thursday, May 24 and Saturday, May 26. The union claims the company is putting profits before safety while Northern Rail bosses say they are prepared to guarantee jobs until 2025, if the union ends the strike action. RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “German-owned Northern Rail want to run half a million trains a year without a safety critical guard on board in a move that would wreck both safety and access to services and they should listen to their front-line staff and pull back from that plan Northern Rail services will be hit by strikes. weekend, the first week of the new timetable and immediately. “RMT has agreed arrangements in Wales and Scot- several events to commemorate the first anniversary of the Manchester attack. land that enshrine the guard guarantee. “We are still prepared to guarantee jobs and pay “If it's good enough for Wales and Scotland to have safe rail services it should be good enough for the reviews for conductors until the end of our franchise in 2025, with the Government guaranteeing jobs rest of Britain.” Richard Allan, Northern’s Deputy Manager Dir- beyond that, but both guarantees depend on RMT ector, said: “We are delivering the biggest ending its strike action. “We urge RMT to move away from its nationally modernisation programme in a generation for customers, including 98 new trains that are now under coordinated strikes and allow its local representatives to engage in meaningful discussions with us on construction, better stations and more services. “It is disappointing that RMT has chosen to target how we better serve customers on-board our new its strike action during the week of the Bank Holiday and refurbished trains.”

“We were walking to Tesco from the estate and talking about everything we could see on the way. Oliver pointed out some of the rubbish on the way and I said how wrong it is to drop litter and that it should go in the bin. “He wanted to help so we talked about picking up the litter to help the binman collect it and to stop animals getting poorly. “We’ll be back out again in the future as he really enjoyed doing it and I’m hoping to do a beach clean next time!” Oliver with his bin bag full of rubbish

Special flowers to remember loved ones at hospice STAFF at Woodlands Hospice are offering the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one by dedicating a special ‘forgetme-not’ flower, which will be displayed in the hospice gardens during the summer months. Anyone who dedicates a flower, all of which are individually hand crafted and painted, will also be invited to the gardens to see them in place, before collecting and taking them home as a permanent reminder of

someone special. Carol Riley, individual giving manager at Woodlands who launched the campaign, said: “In dedicating a flower and making a donation, it is not only a lovely way to remember a friend or family member, it can also help to support others when they are at a really difficult time in their life. “Our beautiful flowers will be displayed in the hospice gardens throughout July, creating a vibrant and colourful display. In early

August we ask those who dedicated to come and collect them and, if they wish, to talk to some of the hospice staff about our work. “Anyone who does dedicate a flower will also receive an acknowledgement letter along with a certificate of dedication through the post.” Linda Arnold, whose husband Billy was cared for at Woodlands, also leant her support to the campaign. Linda said: “When Billy was a patient at Woodlands

the staff and doctors showed us such great compassion, kindness, care and attention during his stay. Always there with a smile to lift our spirits, they helped make a very difficult time easier to cope with. They became like family and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.” If people want to remember a loved one through the forget-me-not appeal, they can do so online at www.forgetmenotappeal.org. For more information call 0151 529 4143.

Merchant Taylorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Combined Cadetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Force was founded in 1915, and is one of the largest contingents in the country. Lt Cdr Thompson said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 20 years since I left Merchant Taylorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, so it was a real privilege to bring an aircraft back to the school, as I spent so many years being part of its Combined Cadet Force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was especially proud to be able to share this moment with my younger brother, Will, and see him in the Guard of Honour. The connections to school are so important and I hope we can continue these links in the years to come.â&#x20AC;? After its arrival, there was a host of activities for the cadets, including an assault course, section attacks and the chance to view the state of the art Wildcat helicopter. This was followed by lunch at the Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; School and a review of the Schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CCF Guard of Honour, by Inspecting Officer, Group Captain John Lawlor, Chief of Staff for the RAF Air Cadets.

A FORMER pupil decided to drop in at his old school in Crosby to say hello â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and arrived by helicopter! Royal Navy Air Squadron, Lieutenant Commander AJ Thompson paid a visit to Merchant Taylors' School on Friday, April 27 and arrived by a Royal Navy Wildcat helicopter, much to the delight of current pupils and staff! It turned out to be a family affair as AJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, William, attends the school and was part of a CCF Guard of Honour when he landed. The brothers were then met at the school by their dad, Andrew. The day was attended by 38 senior North West military professionals from the RAF, Army and the Royal Navy and consisted of a formal inspection of the Schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Guard of Honour, followed by a review

Thank you for Park should have CCTV to reduce Birds are being help after fall vandalism and enforce dog rules shot by the canal Through your column I would like to thank all the people who helped me when I had a fall in Altway, Aintree on Wednesday, May 2. Two ladies and Jonathan stayed with me until the ambulance arrived. They and the ambulance crew and the staff at A&E Aintree Hospital couldn’t have been kinder or more considerate. God bless you all. Edna Regan, By email

All responsible dog owners welcome Sefton Council's clampdown on those who wilfully pollute public parks by refusing to remove their dog’s excrement and put it into the bins provided to protect the health of all park users, especially children. However it is most deplorable that the council's new regulations specifically for Marion Gardens, Netherton soon to come into force and which have very severe penalties for infringement, have not been fully published in the Champion. All those who are unable to use the internet through poverty, poor eyesight, or other disabilities, are denied knowledge of these new, extensive, and severe regulations, many of which are easily or unintentionally infringed. That section of the community are treated as outcasts. Notices put up on railings that such new regula-

tions specifically for Marion Gardens will come into force have been torn down almost immediately, and have not been replaced. The council has allowed notice boards to be destroyed and there are no gates on the park, which is regularly vandalised at night by feral youths. Despite electricity running through the park there is not a single CCTV security camera. There are volunteers willing to open and shut gates if provided and house recorders for wireless surveillance cameras. And if such cameras were installed at Marion Square shopping centre they would also be welcome by shoppers and shopkeepers alike to stop repeated vandalism.

Over the last month I have found dead herons, cormorants and swans on the Leeds Liverpool Canal on the Melling to Aintree stretch. I recently found out why as I saw two young men with air rifles brazenly shooting at the birds. When I got there one of them was standing on the head of a duck he had just shot. Who do you report such cruelty and dangerous behaviour to? Will the police take action on this? The old saying is that people who kill and torture animals usually move on to bigger game at some point and we all know how that ends!

PICTURE of the week

We are here to support people with Multiple Sclerosis We’re here to support people with Multiple Sclerosis. There are more than 100,000 people believed to be living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the UK, with around 5,000 people newly diagnosed with the condition each year? This means that 100 people are diagnosed with MS each week. This week is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week and I’d like to take a moment to tell your readers how by working in partnership with the MS Society, we provide support to people affected by the condition and their carers. For many of us, the chance to take time away from our daily routines is refreshing and revitalising, but we also know that living with a condition that affects daily life can sometimes present challenges to being able to take a break. By working in partnership with the MS Society, we are able to do what we can to change that. In the last year alone, we provided 434 breaks for people living with MS - some of which were thanks to the help of the MS Society - enabling them to take time away from their every day routines and to spend quality time with their loved ones. I work for Revitalise, an incredible charity that provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers, at our Sandpipers respite holiday centre in Southport. Our guests have always been, and will always be, at the heart of everything we do and we are passionate to do everything we can to be there for people when they need us the most. If you would like to find out more about Revitalise, our breaks, or ways we may be able to help you please visit: www.revitalise.org.uk or call: 0303 303 0145.

Scam phone call from ‘HMRC ’ was very scary

PCC ’s salary could pay for five police officers

Re: Scam phone call article in the Champion. I too received the phone call from someone pretending to be from HM Revenue and Customs. It was very scary. I realised it was a scam when it was left on my answerphone. I just deleted it. I didn’t know whether it should be reported to the police fraud squad.

Why doesn’t Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner Jane Kennedy use the £135,000 which is used to pay for her and her staff ’s salary and to hire another five police officers. I’m sure the public would prefer their money to be spent that way. Why should we do their jobs for them?

‘Captain Bert’ hailed Nominations invited for volunteer awards for raising £3,000 for Woodlands Hospice By Tom Martin

A HOSPICE helper who likes to dress up as a sea captain to raise money has been hailed as an ‘unsung hero.’ Bert Makin, from Bootle, regularly supports Woodland Hospice and over the years has raised more than £3,000 for the facility.

NOMINATIONS are now being invited for an awards scheme that recognises the vital contribution that volunteers make to life in Sefton. This is the second year of the scheme organised by Volunteer Centre Sefton with two honours available Sefton Volunteer of the Year and Sefton VolunteerInvolving Project of the Year. The role of Volunteer Centre Sefton, which is part

of Sefton CVS, is to link borough residents to volunteering opportunities, and to help local organisations benefit from the involvement of volunteers. As such, it is uniquely well placed to highlight the valuable work that volunteers do in the borough, often supporting some of the most vulnerable members of the local community. The Sefton Volunteer of the

Year Award will recognise someone who has demonstrated outstanding commitment and dedication to their volunteering, in a bid to make a really positive difference to the quality of life of the local people they support. Meanwhile, the VolunteerInvolving Project of the Year Award is open to any organisation in Sefton that recruits volunteers, and aims to recognise outstanding

achievement in managing and supporting volunteers, helping them to learn new skills and making them feel valued. Both awards will be presented by the Mayor of Sefton at Volunteer Centre Sefton’s annual volunteer celebration event at Bootle Town Hall in June. For more information ring Mike Howlett on 0151 920 0726 ext 208 or email on mike@volunteeringsefton.org.uk

Sara issues diabetes Comfort Studio warning to others after Now Open N O tragic death of brother VAT relief

Visit us @ www.ChampNews.com ● 19

beds are eligible for

A MUM from Litherland whose family has been devastated by diabetes is urging others to have a potentially life-saving check to see if they also have the illness. Sara Daniels tragically lost her younger brother to a diabetic related illness and her dad currently struggles with the side effects of type 2 diabetes. The 46-year-old decided to get a referral to the ‘Healthier You: National Diabetes Prevention Programme’ when her GP informed her that she too was at risk of developing the condition. Sara is one of 1,200 residents in Sara Daniels Sefton to benefit from the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, a free personalised tailored service for people at risk of type 2 diabetes, and she is urging others to check whether they may be at risk of the disease and take action to improve their own health. Since joining the programme 12 months ago, Sara has dropped over one and a half stones in weight, lost ten centimetres from her waistline and is enjoying an increase in energy levels. The success of the local programme is being shared as part of National Diabetes Prevention Week which runs from April 22-16. The programme provides free advice on eating healthily, being more active and losing weight. Currently, around 6,500 Sefton residents have been identified as being ‘at risk’ of developing type 2 diabetes although it is estimated that a further 26,000 local people are yet to be identified. Type 2 diabetes can lead to other serious conditions including stroke, heart disease, limb amputation and early death.

More than 1,600 people have already been referred onto the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme in Sefton, with over 1,200 taking up the offer which is an excellent take up. Sara said: “I feel so much more positive and now have energy to take my three year old daughter to the local parks and beaches. “After losing my brother to the condition and seeing my dad struggle with the side effects of type 2 diabetes, I was shocked when my GP told me that I was also at risk and worried that I might not be around to watch my daughter grow up. “I’ve learnt that diabetes type 2 can develop at any age, but that with small changes in lifestyle, such as an increase in exercise and eating more healthier, the risks of developing the condition really can be reduced, if not eliminated.” When asked about advice for anyone considering joining the programme, Sara said: “I’d urge anyone identified as being at risk of developing the condition to join the programme, there really is nothing to lose and the benefits really can be life changing.” GPs and other healthcare professionals in Sefton are using Diabetes Prevention Week to urge residents to find out if they are at risk and take action to improve their future health. People will be contacted and offered a place on the programme if a recent blood test indicates they might be at risk. You can check to see if you are at risk of the condition at www.diabetes.org/risk and find out more about the programme being delivered in Sefton at www.lwtcsupport.co.uk

Confusing train fares are driving me off the rails I'M coming off the rails - or in fact thousands of others are! According to an article in a prominent railway magazine I've been reading, following years of growth in passenger numbers since privatisation, passenger figures for 2017 were 1.73 billion - 19 million fewer than 2016. If these figures don't worry the train operators, they jolly well should do. Now this article, by a respected rail expert, largely blames this 1.1% slump on the sale of season tickets, I think rightly, on changing working practices, with the traditional five-day working week becoming less common and many folk no longer work a strict 9am-5pm, meaning that buying off-peak tickets works out cheaper. You can of course add to that the increasing number of people working from home using their computers.

And I imagine he is quite right, and maybe the railway companies seriously should consider more flexible 'seasons' for any three or four days out of the traditional five perhaps. But it also seems to me that they should also be thinking in terms of the long-distance and leisure market. When I was a regular train traveller, sometimes covering many hundreds of miles in a week, train travel was simpler - very much simpler - than it is now. For instance, if I wished to travel from Liverpool to Norwich (which I did several times a year), I could buy a full return or, with time restrictions, a ‘saver.’ With either of these options you could choose ‘Via London’ or ‘Not Valid Via London.’ It cost the same either way

Walking netball group seeks new members A HIGHLIGHT of the recent Commonwealth Games was the English netball team winning an unexpected Gold Medal, bringing much excitement to those people who love the sport. Less well known is that the Maghull and Lydiate U3A have a ‘walking netball’ group which may be of interest to people who prefer walking to more energetic running and jumping! The group is on the look-out for new members. If you are interested, contact the U3A at www.maghullandlydiateu3a.org.uk.

and in fact the savvy individual would choose ‘Via London’ because in fact this ticket was valid either as the name implies for travel changing in the capital (and the underground journey was free too) or on the so-called ‘direct’ service. Incidentally, believe it or not, there is still a train from Lime Street to Norwich every hour. It is a Magical Mystery Tour of the Peak District and the Fens and takes as long as the ‘via’ - but it is accomplished on one train and the scenery is beautiful. I always bought a ‘via’ ticket though I only occasionally actually travelled via London. You can of course still travel by either route - but you must specify exactly the

much more for your journey than you counted on. Most rail insiders agree that a complete review of the ticketing system is needed and I do not claim to be the oracle that can save our railways. I would be far more happy being able simply to go down to any station and just ask for a ticket to wherever, and be given perhaps three choices only as to what sort of ticket I wanted. Of course there would be winners and losers in this game - but at least you would know what you were paying for and wouldn't have to be a computer genius hopefully to bag the best bargain. Apart from anything else, how galling it must be if you have just spent, say, £100 on a ticket and found the clever s** sitting beside you had paid £25 for the same thing.

route you wish to take and stick to it. And this is where things come unstuck. On the ‘direct’ train you can still buy a full ‘open’ return, usable at any time of the day, there or back. Or you can buy ‘advance’ single tickets which can work out far cheaper - but you MUST travel on a particular timed train and your ticket is not valid on the services of other train operators in the event of breakdowns or other calamities. So yes, you can now get to Norwich and back more cheaply than ever - but there are serious ‘buts’ and if you play with your computer for long enough you can quite possibly find it cheaper still if you bought two or three different tickets covering places en-route. Probably they too would have their own time/day restrictions and woe betide you if you accidentally break them - you could end up paying much,

Potential nurses urged to consider joining profession Report by Danielle Thompson POTENTIAL nurses in Sefton are being urged to consider joining the profession throughout celebrations to mark International Nurses Day. NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG are marking the career throughout May by highlighting the work of their team, led by chief nurse Debbie Fagan. Choosing nursing as a career offers a world of opportunities and experiences that many people wouldn’t associate with the profession – that’s the message from Sefton health commissioners after International Nurses’ Day on May 12, which celebrates the work of nurses in dedicating themselves to caring for others. The team is made up of qualified nurses who have since moved into commissioning and together they are responsible for ensuring that health services in Sefton are safe for the people who use them. A relatively new member of the team is Karen Garside, who is the CCGs’ designated nurse for safeguarding children. Speaking about Nurses’ Day 2018, and the experiences she has had in her career, Karen said: “I’ve been a nurse for more than 27 years and I really value the fact that my work makes a difference to young people all over Sefton. “I’ve done a variety of different roles including working in a hospital, working as a health visitor and then with children, young people and their families. It was when I was a health visitor that I realised how I could make a difference for children who were at risk of harm or abuse. I worked in a mixture of deprived and affluent areas and safeguarding was a key part of this work, supporting

Karen Garside, the CCGs’ designated nurse for safeguarding children

families and working with partners to ensure children and young people were safe from harm, including physical, sexual, emotional harm and neglect. “Although I no longer have direct contact with children and young people at an operational level, I enjoy the fact that I can still make a difference through working at a strategic level in partnership with different agencies to ensure we have the overarching systems and processes in place to continue to meet their needs and ensure they are protected from harm. “My workload is very varied and can include supporting a serious case review, checking the quality of a local health service and developing policies to tackle issues such as child exploitation. In between formal meetings, advice and support may also be required for individual cases, therefore it is very unpredictable.” Find out more about the career at rcn.org.uk/nurses-day

NEW DATA PROTECTION RULES

What does it mean for your small business? You will no doubt have heard the ‘hype’ surrounding the new data protection rules coming into force on 25 May 2018. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to overhaul how your business processes and handles data. Just because you may run only a modest business does not mean you can ‘bury your head in the sand’ in relation to these reforms. Accountability Under GDPR, the “destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to” peoples’ data will have to be reported to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) (as well as the person who it is about) within 72 hours where it could have a detrimental impact on the person or “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”. Opt in not Opt out When you are relying on consent to lawfully use a person’s information you must clearly explain that consent is being given and there has to be a clear “positive opt-in” rather than an “opt-out” system. This is very different from the presumed consent model under which many businesses operate at present. Right to be forgotten

www.dphlaw.co.uk

The new regulation also gives individuals the power to have their personal data erased in some circumstances e.g. where it is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected, if consent is withdrawn or if there is no legitimate interest to keep it.

Specific protection for children Since children are generally more vulnerable and less aware of risks, GDPR includes parental consent for children up to age 16. Fines One of the biggest, and potentially crippling consequence of the GDPR for your business, is the power for regulators to fine businesses that do not comply with it - up to £20,000,000 or 4% of turnover. Preparing your business GDPR will have a varying and wide ranging impacts on all sorts of businesses and organisations from preparing new data policies, updating procedures, appointing a data controller and following the 12 step guide produced by the ICO

For more detailed advice and guidance on GDPR please do not hesitate to contact us at

Everton give ‘Blueblood’ award to Alfie Evans’ dad Report by Tom Martin ALFIE Evans’ grieving dad made his first public appearance since his son’s death when he appeared at Everton FC's endof-season awards ceremony. The 21-year-old was given the 'Chairman's Blueblood Award' at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall by Bill Kenwright on Tuesday, May 1 for his efforts in trying to save Alfie's life, and during the ceremony he gave an emotional speech about his son. Tom spoke in front of a packed crowd of Blues players, staff and supporters, revealing how he dreamed that Alfie would follow in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney and become a legend at Everton. During the lengthy legal battle over Alfie’s life, Blues chairman Bill Kenwright embraces Tom Evans on stage Kenwright made a significant score that goal in my brother’s bedroom. I donation to Everton fan Tom so he could was only a little nipper but my dream was help hit a £10,000 target to challenge a to follow in those steps.

The World Artistic Gymnastic Championships when it was held in Glasgow in 2015

City to host World Artistic Gymnastic competition LIVERPOOL has been selected as the host city for the 2022 World Artistic Gymnastic Championships. The unanimous decision by the Federation of International Gymnastics (FIG) follows a combined bid between British Gymnastics, Liverpool City Council and UK Sport. This is only the third time in the event’s history that it will be held in the UK, most recently in Glasgow in 2015. The 2022 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, to be held at the Echo Arena, will be one of the largest international sporting events ever to be held in Liverpool with an estimated 600 gymnasts from 90 countries taking part in ten days of competition. The local economic impact of the event is estimated at £5.1m. Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “It is a huge sporting coup for Liverpool to host the World Gymnastics Championships in 2022 and a unique opportunity to showcase the city to a global audience. “Liverpool has a fantastic track record in nurturing gymnastic talent, like Beth, and we’ve fostered a great relationship with British Gymnastics so the 2022 World Championships will be a great way to celebrate our decade-long journey together and kickstart the countdown to the Paris Olympics. “With our world class facilities, brilliant partners and unbelievably

passionate crowds we look forward to giving the sport of gymnastics a World Championships to remember.” British Gymnastics chief executive officer, Jane Allen, said: “We are delighted Liverpool has been selected to host the 2022 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. What an exciting year it’s going to be with the 2022 Commonwealth Games also taking place on home soil. The World Championships should be a qualifying event for the 2024 Olympic Games so expect to see the World’s absolute best at Liverpool 2022 including many international Olympic stars. “The bid process saw us join forces with Liverpool City Council and the Government’s major events agency UK Sport, to provide a compelling bid which impressed the FIG. We now all look forward to continuing our work together to provide a fantastic experience for gymnasts and spectators alike.” Sports minister Tracey Crouch, said: “This is fantastic news for Liverpool and the whole country. The UK has a brilliant track record for putting on the biggest sporting events and showcasing the best of Britain to the world. “It’s events like this, as well as the brilliant recent performances of our gymnasts, that inspire the next generation. I know that Liverpool will put on an excellent World Championship.”

BOOTLE pupils got a chance to turn a page in their school reading after they were given £500 to splash at a local bookstore! Youngsters from Springwell Park Primary School won a voucher from The Siobhan Dowd Trust which they were delighted to spend at Pritchard's Bookshop, in Crosby Village. Year 2 teacher Tom Hanlon said: “I recently entered my school into a charitable scheme ran by The Siobhan Dowd Trust, where they award schools with a book shop spree of either £250 or £500. “In the application, you have to explain how your school promotes reading for pleasure and we were lucky enough to win the top grant of £500! I took children from across both Key Stages to the book shop and we spent our £500, selecting books for

Mum is up for Women of the Year award A MUM from Crosby has been shortlisted in the Merseyside Women of the Year awards. Julie Lawson, who has helped raise more than £80,000 for charity over the last 12 years, is named as one of only 21 women who could pick up the prestigious award. The winner is decided by public vote and will be announced on Friday, June 22 at a ceremony held in the Crowne Plaza in the city centre. The awards are aimed at “rewarding the best of the best

and leave a legacy of amazing role models for the next generation of women.” The Champion has done several stories over the years about Julie and her charity work both at a local and national level. Julie was inspired to fundraise after losing both of her parents only seven weeks apart to Alzheimer's and she has raised thousands for the Alzheimer's Association and other charities. Julie said she was “shocked” after her name was put on

the shortlist for candidates to win the top award – Woman of the Year. A spokesperson for the Merseyside Women of the Year awards said: “Julie is an amazing voluntary fundraiser who has helped raise more than £80,000 over the last 12 years for an array of charities including local, national and international organisations. She is an inspiration to everyone she meets and her boundless energy and enthusiasm to help improve people’s lives through her

fundraising work is making a real difference to the people of Merseyside and beyond. “Having lost both her parents within seven weeks of each other to Alzheimer’s Julie decided to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. However her fundraising efforts don’t stop there, she has held events to raise money for the Air Cadets, Help For Heroes, Team Sefton, Cancer Research, Woodlands Hospice, an orphanage based in Thailand and The Brain Charity.”

Mersey Ferries announce their Summer Evening Cruise programme THE River Mersey will be alive with the sound of music this summer when Liverpool’s iconic ferries set sail for a series of evening cruises. Mersey Ferries have announced the 2018 Summer Evening Cruise programme, with sailings taking place on Friday and Saturday nights for the first time. The cruises offer live music from talented local artists including Marc Kenny, Callum Mac and Lucy Mayhew – who kicked off the season last Saturday, May 12. The two-hour evening sails, which depart from Seacombe at 7.30pm and at 7.40pm from Pier Head, Liverpool offer breathtaking views of the sunset over Liverpool's unique UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront. Passengers can experience a fully licensed paid bar and time to enjoy with their friends and family singing and dancing along on the decks of the iconic vessels. The Summer Evening Cruises run until September and are part of Mersey Ferries’ events programme,

helping the city of Liverpool celebrate ten years since being named European Capital of Culture. Alongside the evening cruises, Mersey Ferries will also host a series of special cruises, including Beatles Tribute Cruises, The Making of Motown tribute cruise and a viewing cruise for the Tall Ships, which come to the River Mersey on 28 May. “We’ve got an incredible line up of talent this year for the Summer Evening Cruise programme,” said Gary Evans of the Mersey Ferries. “The cruises proved really popular last year – with over 2,600 visitors enjoying them - so we hope to see even more people this year digging out their dancing shoes and joining others for a night of fantastic entertainment.” Tickets are expected to sell out fast for many of the sailings in the Summer Evening Cruises programme this year, so for more information or to book places visit www.merseyferries.co.uk/eve, call the ticket office on 0151 330 1003, visit any Mersey Ferries Ferry Terminal or follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Win tickets to new production THE new show An Officer And A Gentleman - The Musical is coming to the Liverpool Empire next week (May 21-26) and the Champion has five pairs of tickets to give away. Nikolai Foster, director of An Officer and Gentleman – The Musical said: “Douglas Day Stewart wrote An Officer and a Gentleman in response to his time serving in the American Air Force and the challenges he faced during training. It is a visceral, uncompromising and ultimately tender portrait of these personal experiences and the lives of folk living near the training facility in the early 1980s. “We are proud to have assembled such an accomplished company of actors to create our production and realise this beautiful portrait of working class lives. All of us at Curve are excited to tell this story set to a fantastic 80s playlist - and to be working with the talented team at Jamie Wilson Productions. “Productions like this couldn’t be made without the support of our collaborators and we are thrilled to be working with Jamie and his team. Officer will certainly be a memorable moment in our theatre's 10th birthday year.” Four-time Laurence Olivier Award nominated actress Emma Williams will play Paula Pokrifki. Emma’s previous credits include Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mrs Henderson Presents and Love

Story, all in the West End. This year Emma won the What's On Stage Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for playing Helen in Cameron Mackintosh's revival of Half A Sixpence at the Noel Coward Theatre. Jonny Fines will play the iconic role of Zack Mayo – the role made famous by Richard Gere in the beloved 80s film. Jonny most recently played the role of Rooster in the West End production of Annie at The Piccadilly Theatre. Other theatre credits include the UK Tours of The Sound of Music and Avenue Q. This musical is based on the 1982 Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere which tells the story of Zack Mayo who is in training to become a US Navy Pilot. The musical includes the hit song from the movie Up Where We Belong along, with 80’s classics such as Alone, Don’t Cry Out Loud, and Material Girl and features one of the most iconic romantic scenes ever portrayed on screen. To be in with a chance of winning the tickets which are for the opening night (May 21), answer this question. Name the actor, who has also appeared in Pretty Woman and Chicago, who starred in An Officer and A Gentleman. Please email your answers to henry.james@champnews.com by noon this Friday (May 18). The usual Champion rules apply.

Popular play set to return YOURS – A Tale of The Bootle Blitz is to be performed again by The Waterloo and Crosby Theatre Company following its successful first run last year. Due to the impact this play had on those who came to see it last year, and the number of requests to repeat the production, the company were asked to put the production on again. The Waterloo and Crosby Theatre Company is a local amateur group that has been performing for the local community since 1982. They have won numerous awards for their productions. Last year they were approached by a local writer from Formby, David E Davies, about a new production that he had written in 1995 to celebrate the 50 anniversary of VE Day. The script had never been performed and he asked the company if they would be interested in taking the production to the stage.

They did this in July 2017 and it was a massive success, resulting in seven NODA Award(National Operatic and Dramatic Association) nominations for the production, including Best Ensemble which they won and they are now through to the Regional Awards in Manchester. Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson saw the play last year and hailed it as “Outstanding”. He said: “It was an emotional play from start to finish and an outstanding production and performance”. The production will be performed at Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School on Liverpool Road in Crosby on:Wednesday 30, Thursday, May 31, Friday, June 1 at 7.30pm and a matinee performance on Saturday, June 2 2018 at 2pm. The venue is fully accessible. Tickets can be purchased by calling 07490-134581 or online at: www.theatreco.org.uk

Visit us at www.parbold-cars.co.uk ARE YOU the sort of tortured soul who gets all misty-eyed over the Ford Orion? Or that discerning driver who wishes that Vauxhall could bring the Belmont back? Don’t worry, it’s not a trick question. I know that there really are people out there who thought both of these Eighties offerings were thoroughly sensible – if utterly style-free - small saloons that weren’t to be sniffed at. OPEN 7 DAYS • PART EXCHANGE It’s only in the following decade, when the fat-bottomed brethren of the Escort and Astra became joyrider favourites and popped up regularly on Police, Camera, Action that they finally lost their appeal as unpretentious ADVERTISE HERE! Call 01704 392392 shopping chariots and slipped firmly into banger-dom. But if you’re the sort of person who looks back fondly on the Triumph Acclaim and is utterly baffled by today’s fashionconscious off-roaders when all that people Looking for an EXPERT? should really want is a cheap, reliable saloon, then you’d be forgiven for wondering what Tell them you found them happened to the Orion’s ilk. in the USED Champion Ford hasn’t sold a Focus saloon for nearly a CAR SPECIALISTS decade and Vauxhall gave up with booted Astras a long time ago. If you want a new car with a proper boot rather than one of these newfangled hatchbacks then you have to go up a size to the Audi A4s and Jaguar XEs of this world. Unless, of course, you go knocking at Honda’s door in about two months’ time.

Bootle beat Northern by six runs in nail-biting finish at Wadham Road WADHAM Road staged a first against second Premier League clash when Firwood Bootle met Northern last Saturday - and what a corker it turned out to be, the crowd being kept on the edge of their seats until the final ball was bowled. Bootle chose to bat first but Northernstruck an early blow sending back Will Hale for a six ball duck. Liam Grey was posing all manner of problems on a difficult track and the hosts had to graft for every run, occasionally losing wickets to unnecessarily careless shots. Will Purser’s 30 not out was the highest individual effort as Bootle were dismissed for 114 after 36 overs, Grey bowling throughout the innings and being rewarded with a fine 8-46. The Northern top order batted steadily, so that at 80-3 they were clear favourites to win the match, skipper James Cole leading the way with a solid 39. The Bootle seamers, Purser and Chris Liptrot, refused to throw in the towel, however, and when four wickets went down for 16 runs the game was back in the balance. It finally ended when Purser clean bowled Tom Sephton with the third ball of the 34th over as Northern were all out for 108 to leave Bootle and their supporters exhausted but cock-a-hoop with a victory by six

Grey claims 8-46 but hosts snatch victory after middle order collapse runs. l Bootle were unable to pull off a repeat performance in the following day’s Royal London Cup tie at Beech Walk, where Leigh bowled them out for 125 in their 40 overs, Finnegan Hulbert taking 5-28. The hosts had few problems easing to victory by 6 wickets in the 30th over of their reply in a game which was as flat as the previous day’s had been exciting. Northern had more joy beating Chester Broughton Hall away by three wickets. Chester finished on 186-5 in their 40 overs. Northern started off well in reply but lost wickets at regular intervals and the game was in the balance when they were on 147-7 but Carl hey scored an unbeaten 63 to take Northern home to victory with three wickets and four overs to spare. l On Saturday next Bootle host Wallasey in the Premier League before travelling to Denton West on Sunday for a first round Lancashire Cup tie.

Formby top table after home win IT’S tight at the top of Liverpool & District Competition Premier Division with the top three of Formby, Northern and Bootle separated by just three points. Formby moved top with a five wicket home against Rainford, the visitors chose to bat first and were dismissed for 135, with Comfrey Edgeworth 51 and skipper David Snellgrove

39 the only batsman to offer much resistance against an attack brilliantly led by Ben Aitchison who claimed 5-23 off 14 overs. In reply, Karl Brown 39 and Lukman Vahaluwala 36 set the hosts on their way before Ollie Sutton 9* saw them to victory on 136-5. Ormskirk moved up to fourth place with a comprehensive

122 run win at Lytham. Opener Andy Baybutt 76, Josh Bohannon 74 and an unbeaten 38 from George Lavelle enabled the visitors to declare on 224-3. In reply, skipper Ben Saunders top scored with 29 for Lytham who were bowled out for 102, with Tom Hartley 3-13 and Ryan Maddock 3-21 taking the bulk of the wickets.

Lowe in fine bowing form for Ainsdale IN the First Division, Ainsdale moved up to second place with a comfortable eight wicket win at Wavertree. The hosts slipped from 721 to 141 all out with Theo O’Brien 65 and Tom Oughterson 48 scoring the majority of the runs, whilst Joe Lowe was in fine form with the ball with 5-57. In reply, skipper Andy Barlow weighed in with 26 before Mark Lucas 598 and Stephen

Lucas 42* led the visitors to victory on 142-2. Southport & Birkdale were unable to make it three consecutive wins after Newton le Willows showed no intention of chasing down their target and just about held on for a draw at Trafalgar Road. The hosts chose to bat first and managed to post 165 up on the board, with Australian Alex Trimboli top scoring with 43, whilst plenty of others made decent

starts but failed to capitalise on a slow outfield that didn’t give the batsmen value for their shots In reply, the visitors were reduced to 4-2 and from that moment on were never interested in winning the match, skipper Chris Firth juggled his bowlers around and even a wicket with what turned out to be the final delivery wasn’t enough as Newton closed on 99-9 with Chris Cunningham taking 3-25.

Bucks end league campaign with comfortable away win Padiham 0 Bootle 2 TWO first-half goals helped Bootle bring down the curtain on their 2017/18 season, writes Connor O’Neill. Featuring three players from the club’s under18s side, they ran out comfortable winners in east Lancashire, finishing the season in fifth place in the North west Counties Premier Division table. The Bucks opened the scoring when Aidan Noon's fine pass split the Padiham defence, and Cox coolly composed

himself before firing the ball into the bottom right-hand corner of the net. Padiham soon went close to levelling as Michael Morrison's freekick ran all the way through to Dominic Craig who saw his firsttime effort blocked by the onrushing Ryan Jones. On the stroke of halftime Bootle doubled their advantage when Charlie Kelly and Kieran Haligan combined before the latter found Liam Loughlin who in return released Cox, but for the second time the for-

ward's effort came back off the post, but fortunately for Bootle, the ball hit Sam Tattum before crossing the line. The Bucks continued to carve out openings in the second-half with Michael Ordish hitting the crossbar from the edge of the box before Stuart Cross denied both Cox and Joe Carroll. The closest Padiham came to a consolation arrived five minutes from time when Jason Hart swept the ball out to Adam Morning who saw his effort superbly pushed onto the post by Jones.
