A MAN was shot in the back on a busy road in Bootle. The 21-year-old victim, who is in a serious but stable condition in hospital, was targeted when the area was busy with rush hour traffic on Aintree Road at around 5.45pm on Friday, November 29. Police are hopeful that witnesses will be able to help with their investigation. Detective Inspector Lee Wilkinson said: “This incident happened on a busy road in the early evening and we believe people out there know or will have seen or heard something. “This is a targeted attack which has caused the victim serious injuries and also presented a significant threat to the wider public. “Nobody in the community wants to be at risk from the threat of weapons on their streets, so stand with us and we will take positive action. “In recent weeks, information from our communities has led to arrests, seizures and other action. “This continues daily and only yesterday, a firearm was recovered in Bootle. “If you come forward with what you know, the results can make a massive difference. “You can speak to police directly, or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers, or via local authorities. However you get the information to us, do so now.” Anyone with information, home or business CCTV, dashcam or other footage can contact 101, or DM us @MerPolCC quoting ref 0734 of 29 November, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

TAX OFFICE WORKERS PROTEST OVER AGENCY STAFF REDUNDANCIES More than 80 told they were no longer needed despite signing contracts keeping them until January Report by Tom Martin A PROTEST was held outside The Triad tax office in Bootle after more than 80 agency staff were made redundant by the HMRC. The industrial action was held on Friday, November 29 when workers with placards and flags gathered next to the tax office on Stanley Road. The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) members also handed out leaflets to members of the public as they tried to spread the word about their campaign. The Champion reported last month how the HMRC told more than 80 people that they were no longer needed despite signing contracts keeping them until January. They had been hired by the tax office through recruitment agency Brook Street to work in the Business Tax and Customs directorate to help the department with work generated by Brexit. The staff had been recruited to work until at least the start of January, but now find themselves out of

roles.” An HMRC spokesperson said: “We have to keep our temporary staffing needs under review. “We have properly remunerated all those leaving us for their contracted hours and have allowed time for them to seek alternative employment.”

Shoplifter who lunged at Asda security guard with a knife is jailed Report by Lynda Roughley A SECURITY guard was slashed on his arm and leg and savagely bitten while trying to detain a shoplifter in Bootle. The victim, Mark Roberts, an experienced guard, was badly traumatised by the attack at Asda, on Strand Road, and the thought that he could easily have been killed. At the time of the incident, his assailant 26-yearold Aaron Smith, from Litherland, was engaged in a campaign of theft and twice threatened staff at other supermarkets with a hypodermic syringe. Jailing him for five years with an extended licence of three and a half years Judge Andrew Menary, QC, the Recorder of Liverpool, said, “You are a prolific thief. It was a campaign to steal and avoid detention by threatening or using harm.” Liverpool Crown Court heard that Smith lunged at Mr Roberts with a craft knife on April 20 this year after he was spotted stealing alcohol. In an impact statement Mr Roberts said the incident had left him wary and he had bought himself a stab vest to protect himself. “At no time did he have any regard to my safety and he could have killed me if he had slashed me in the wrong area.” The father-of-two daughters said he had never encountered such violence before and it had knocked his confidence. He praised Asda for allowing him to be taken off front of store duties until he felt able to return to them. Smith, a Class A drug addict, pleaded guilty to wounding him with intent to resist apprehension. Simon Duncan, prosecuting, said Smith had lunged at Mr Roberts with the knife. The court heard Smith had stolen meat from Home and Bargain in Linacre Road, Bootle on Janu-

Aaron Smith.

ary 18 and from Aldi in Thornton on March 20 and Tesco in Bootle on April 17. During the latter two incidents he produced a hypodermic syringe and threatened store staff. Smith, of Ford Lane, Litherland, admitted eight other offences involving thefts, affrays, going equipped to steal, possessing a craft knife and being in breach of a suspended sentence imposed in January for theft and burglary. The court heard he has 20 convictions for 44 previous offences. Sarah Holt, defending, said that his drug habit started in his teenage years and he became addicted to crack and heroin. He and his drug addict mum had been subjected to domestic violence and he moved to live with his grandfather.

The Vivienne (above and right) was crowned the first ever winner of the UK version of the reality show, RuPaul’s Drag Race after beating nine other contestants to take the crown

Drag queen takes crown on TV contest A DRAG queen from Bootle has been crowned the first ever winner of the UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The Vivienne, 27, whose real name is James Williams, was named the winner of the popular reality TV show after he beat nine other contestants to the title by competing in a series of challenges. RuPaul’s Drag Race has been a huge hit in America ever since it was launched in 2009, but it only appeared in the UK this year on BBC Three. It has been a popular watch for viewers, with the BBC revealing nearly ten million requests have been made on iPlayer to watch. The Vivienne was crowned the winner of the finale on Thursday, November 21. She said: “I’m made up, I’ve just won the first ever season of Drag Race UK. This is nuts! That crown is going to look gorgeous, I can

Report by Tom Martin see me there washing the dishes in it.” The series began with ten contestants from different backgrounds, regions and ages, who all competed on weekly episodes when they took on different challenges, including singing and dancing. The Vivienne was chosen by head judge and drag icon RuPaul Charles, who was helped make the decision by celebrity judges Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton. Explaining the reason behind choosing The Vivienne as her name, she

said: “I love Vivienne Westwood and when I moved to Liverpool everyone used to call me Vivienne as I was head to toe in Westwood. “When I started doing drag, it was a natural progression, but I didn’t want one of those cheap, nasty drag names so I thought of ‘The Vivienne’ and here she is.” The Vivienne, who moved to LA after living in Bootle, was named Ru Paul’s Drag Race ambassador for the UK in 2016 after she won a competition. She said at the time: “Being crowned by RuPaul was the most crazy experience, I’m a huge fan of the show and RuPaul himself. “He’s the absolute queen of the world so being crowned was the most nuts experience.”

Number of homeless children has soared by 385% in five years By Danielle Thompson A REPORT has revealed that 4,150 children in the North West are homeless and living in temporary accommodation, a rise of 385% in the last five years – with 18 of them in Sefton. For the first time, the housing and homeless charity Shelter has exposed the frequency with which children are becoming homeless across the region, as its Generation Homeless report reveals 18 children lose their home every day in The report found families are often squeezed into one room. Sefton has 18 homeless children, out of 56,758 the North West. The report also shines a light on the 290 families children in its population – and a national rank of with children in the region currently living in emer- 265.

With a severe lack of social homes, expensive reminder that political promises about tackling private rents and welfare cuts driving the country’s homelessness must be turned into real action. “Day in, day out we see the devastating impact housing emergency, Shelter is warning that if nothing changes 162 children across the North West will the housing emergency is having on children across be made homeless between now and the time of the region.

The charity is calling on every political party to strangers outside. “Every child has the right to a safe home and if we put housing at the top of its domestic agenda and is asking the public to support its urgent Christmas act now, our frontline advisers can support more homeless families in the North West to get to a betappeal. The report ranked the local authorities across the ter place. Every donation will help Shelter to be North West, with Sefton rated 23. It shows that there for everyone who need us this Christmas.”

education. Hugh Baird College’s head of services, John Billington, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for Hugh Baird College to receive this accolade. As a Microsoft Showcase College, our students, staff and community will benefit from billions of pounds of research and knowledge that we would have otherwise not have had access to. “We all know that technology is constantly changing and we have to keep up with it if we are to provide the skills our learners deserve and the support our staff need. “I’d like to personally thank Microsoft for selecting our College, their support has been outstanding and has enabled us to further achieve our vision of being at the forefront of innovation with exceptional teaching and learning.” Nicky Bowen, Hugh Baird College’s e-learning and training officer added: “It is vital for our students to be equipped with the knowledge and practical experience of using the latest technology available on the market. “Almost all careers now require you to be literate in using digital skills and we are here to give our students the best opportunity to progress in their lives once they complete their studies with us at Hugh Baird College.”

A PISTOL and ammunition were discovered in Bootle at the weekend – and an investigation has been launched. A report was received at around 12.05pm that the items had been discovered in Springs Close on Saturday, 30 November. Officers attended and the items were removed safely and taken for forensic examination. A scene remains in place while enquiries continue in the area. Detective Inspector Lee Wilkinson said: “An investigation is now underway following the recovery of a firearm and ammunition this afternoon and I would ask anyone with information to come forward. This weapon has thankfully been removed from our streets and enquiries will be carried out to establish whether it linked to any

recent incidents involving firearms. “I want to reassure the public that we are working tirelessly to pursue those involved in serious and organised crime, and another dangerous weapon removed from the hands of criminals is a positive result. Individuals involved in serious and organised crime have no place in our communities and it is vital that people continue to come forward with information so we can put them before the courts. “If anyone has any information about the recovered firearms, those involved in gun crime, or who knows where weapons are being stored, please get in touch.” Anyone with information is asked to contact @MerPolCC, call 101 quoting ref. 19100701094, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Special festive market this Sunday will raise funds for dance school

Youngsters from Attitude Dance, who would benefit from more costumes and competitions

A DANCE school in Bootle will hold a festive market to help raise funds so children can get new costumes and enter more competitions. Attitude Dance has organised a Christmas market this Sunday (December 8) between 10am-8pm at their base on Aintree Road, in Bootle. The event, which is open to the public, will help raise money so they have buy new costumes as well as enter competitions, including a special event in Disneyland Paris next year. Attitude Dance was set up in a small church hall, off Fernhill Road, but has grown to have around 60 children on their books across the different classes. A spokesperson for the group said: “The pupils have entered several competitions over the last five years and they have received several plaudits from established and reputable dancers in the business, as well as senior national dance champions in 2017 and receiving the prestigious award of best dance school four times in three competitions. “The school provides a safe haven and secure place for our passionate local talent where our reach is going beyond the Bootle area stretching as far as Maghull, Walton, Old Swan and Huyton. “The school offers fee payment on a weekly basis which is very different to other schools wanting monthly payments in advance. “This is to support and appreciate our parents financial positions. “A parent-teachers association has been established this month and first aim is to get as much fundraising done as possible to get several things in place. “Costumes are massive when it comes to dance

competitions. It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the standards of good costumes to meet our amazing standards of dancing. “The school is also desperate to take the pupils to Disneyland Paris next year to dance in an annual competition. It would be such an amazing achievement if we could take the kids to Disney on the school’s tenth year anniversary. “We are holding a Christmas Market in the dance studios and would love people from far and wide to come. “There will be Christmas-themed stalls, a bouncy castle, Santa’s grotto and a cafe.”

Play area scrapped from homes proposal Report by Tom Martin A HOUSING firm which was given permission to build 21 homes in Seaforth now wants to change their plans to scrap a proposed children’s play area. One Vision Housing (OVH) was granted planning approval by Sefton Council last month to build 16 houses and five bungalows on an empty patch of land known as Kings Park. Some nearby residents were against the plan because they didn’t want to lose the land as children used it as a recreational space. OVH has now risked further angering these residents because they have now scrapped their plans for a play area as part of the housing development. A spokesperson for the company said: “One Vision Housing are looking to build 21 affordable homes in Seaforth which will include highquality landscaped open spaces for the community to enjoy. “We are currently awaiting details of a cost and risk assessment to determine the viability of including a The demolition of Montgomery House, which left Kings play area. “This exciting development sup- Park an empty patch of land as a place where children can play. ports our regeneration agenda and will help The site used to be the home of the high rise provide much needed affordable housing. towers Montgomery House and Churchill House “We will continue to work closely with the combefore they were demolished in 2016. munity and Sefton Council during this process, Since then the land has been left empty, and and look forward to creating future opportunities some locals hoped it would remain this way over in the area.” concerns it will lead to loss of green space in the Kings Park is one of few green spaces left in area.

I was impressed with the agility contest, hoop jumping and fire hoop jumps. “It was also a pleasure to speak to representatives from the Therapy Dogs Charity,

who explained that they take dogs into hospitals, hospices and even prisons. “Thank you to all those people that helped to make it a great afternoon.” Fran Ellis, said on behalf of the animal charity's trustees: “The day was a huge success and raised over £3,200 to fund the care of homeless and abused animals over Christmas and new year. “Everyone had a lovely day with lots of local people enjoying hotpot lunch and soup and cakes. “We have over 200 animals that will need feeding and keeping warm over Christmas. “We are open every day of the week and Christmas Day caring for the dogs, cats, rabbits and farm animals.

Council has felled 642 trees in three years report reveals Local authority say cutting only takes place if they are diseased or danger to public Report by Danielle Thompson SEFTON Council has defended its tree cutting policy following a report in the national media that the local authority had axed 642 trees in the last 36 months. Some residents have accused the local authority of cutting down healthy trees ‘just so they don’t have to pay to maintain them.’ Champion reader Joanne Hall said: “Over the years I have watched as Sefton Council cuts down the trees on the streets for no valid reason.” She added that while the trees often had notices pinned on them stating that they had a fungus, or were unsafe, there appeared to be nothing wrong with most of the trees that are felled. She said she felt that trees and habitat are “not valued enough and are not protected in the borough.” A council spokesperson said the council only cut down trees if they are a danger to public safety and that nearly 300 trees were planted last winter. A spokeswoman for Sefton Council said: “Sefton Council is dedicated to keeping Sefton clean, green and beautiful and maintaining the borough’s trees and greenspaces is a major part of this vision. “Last winter Sefton Council planted 295 trees on the highway and 51 trees within parks across Sefton while also doing our best to maintain and care for existing trees. “However, there are some cases where a tree may be posing a threat to the highway or private properties and after careful consideration from our expert

tree and woodland officers, sometimes the only solution is to remove the tree. “The decision to remove a tree is never taken lightly but public safety remains our paramount concern and we will always act where we feel there is a significant health and safety issue.”

Fantasy festive show to raise funds for animal rescue charity Report by Danielle Thompson

LIVERPOOL’S first Fantasy Christmas Show will be held next week at the Adelphi Hotel to raise funds for Freshfields Animal Rescue in Ince Blundell. The Fantasy Christmas Show will be held at the Adelphi Hotel Ballroom in the city centre, with live performances, from 7pm on Wednesday, December 11 – and tickets are still available to buy. Creative director Kahli Morris said: “Fantasy was launched in Liverpool earlier this year and their live performances have already entertained thousands of people. This unique Christmas show offers something completely different for those looking for festive fun. “September ’s show in St George’s Hall attracted over 2,000 people. We are really excited to be running our first ever Christmas show which combines many live performances into one spectacular show. Musical theatre, pop music, stand-up comedy, comedy scenes, psychic readings and a drag queen host will combine to make this an evening to remember. “Fantasy will be supporting Freshfields Animal Rescue with fundraising activities on the evening. “We have created a show with something for everyone! Happy, uplifting music will take centre stage with plenty of comedy, dance and Christmas fun to offer something completely different. "Fantasy like to focus on the happy side of life. All of our shows are filled with positive, funny songs and comedy performances. We take our inspiration from classical musicals such as Grease, Bugsy Malone, Little Shop of Horrors and Annie. We also include classic pop music and dance styles ranging from the 1950s to present day. “The show will also feature two special celebrity

guests; a very well -known Liverpool comedian and a psychic medium to the stars. We can’t reveal our two celebrity guests yet but we are very excited to be working with both of them! For live entertainment fans the Fantasy Christmas Show is not to be missed; it will be an amazing event which will entertain and inspire. “Showcasing a wide range of performances, the Fantasy Christmas Show will be a great evening out.” Debbie Hughes from Freshfields added: “We are absolutely delighted that the Fantasy Christmas Show will be supporting abused, abandoned and unwanted animals this Christmas. Freshfields offers new hope to creatures of all kinds who have nowhere else to turn, and need a warm place to stay, nourishing food, and most of all the love and care that they need so desperately. Thanks a million to Kahli and Colin and everyone at Fantasy.” To buy tickets, which cost £10, visit fantasyperformers.co.uk or for more information about the charity, visit freshfields.org.uk

Former Merchants Taylors’ pupil Adele first to be voted out of the celebrity jungle DJ Adele Roberts was the first famous face to be booted out of the I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! jungle at the weekend. The former Merchant Taylors’ School pupil, who is a Radio 1 DJ, endured an exit mired in controversy after votes made by fans via the show’s app were discounted due to an issue with the wording. The 40 year old, who grew up in Southport, has spoken out after her exit on Friday, November 29, saying that she had ‘made peace’ with the result of the vote. Programme hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly told viewers to phone in to vote for the campmate they wanted to save, the app implied users were, in fact, ‘voting off’ a celebrity – so all of the votes made on the app were discounted. ITV have since said the same situation won't arise for the next vote-off as it was a one-time issue. Adele said: “Maybe it counted against me but I kinda feel whatever will be will be. “I have made peace with that and all I wanted to do was make sure I stayed for the 14 days and I said last night if I got to stay it was a bonus. “I am happy with what I achieved. I feel like I have graduated from jungle university. I could have gone anyway if the app had been working.” She was greeted by her girlfriend Kate Holderness as she walked across the bridge upon her exit, who she told, “I love you, I’ve missed you so much.” She said that she had learnt a lot from her time on the show, including that she is ‘stronger than she thought’ - and hopes that Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle would win. During her two-week stint on the show, the gutsy DJ took part in gross Bushtucker

Trials, which included gruesome eating challenges. These included chewing down on pig uterus and the disgusting-smelling vomit fruit. She also donned goggles and stuck her head into a bowl of slime and bugs to retrieve a star and passed pigs testicles between her camp-mates using her mouth in a bid to win the gang a roast dinner. Adele was sandwiched between Cliff Parisi and James Haskell for this one! Friday’s show saw the celebrities face two sickening challenges – drinking pints of blended pig brains, fermented duck eggs, pig anuses and lamb’s testicles. In the next challenge, the celebrities used clear tubes to clear bathtubs of blood as they filled up while they were sat in them.

‘Loose concrete’ at school which is shut due to safety fears Report by Henry James PIECES of concrete had been seen coming loose at Lydiate Primary school which remains closed more than a week after it was first shut on safety grounds.

All aboard... for a festive adventure in Liverpool!

THE festive season is now in full swing in Liverpool and this year Yuletide visitors will be able to get a unique ‘ticket to ride’ on the Polar Adventure! Departing from a specially built station on Chavasse Park in Liverpool ONE, the Christmas Express will take passengers on an enchanting 30-45 minutes ‘North Pole’ experience, complete with festive music, dancing and even a hot chocolate pit stop. Led by the ‘Jolly Station Master’ and his team of porters, the train ride offers a range of captivating Christmas activities fit for the whole family to enjoy. Christmas in Liverpool looks set to be the most magical yet and the Champion was invited along to see just what the city can offer seasonal visitors this year. Liverpool is in the top three UK cities to visit but there’s no better time to enjoy it than at Christmas. Much-loved favourites such as Bar Hutte makes a welcome return underneath the 30 metre-tall Christmas ‘love heart’ tree on Paradise Street while The Ice Festival at the Pier Head is back complete with ice skating, thrill rides and stalls. Meanwhile, across the city can be found the traditional Christmas markets located outside the magnificent St George’s Hall. So Liverpool is definitely ready to deck the halls again this year. But it’s not just Christmas that awaits the Yuletide visitor. Of course, no visit to Liverpool would be complete without mention of the Beatles. On the city’s iconic Matthew Street you’ll find the Magical Beatles Museum - three floors full of original and unique Beatles memorabilia. The museum was only opened last year by Roag Best, brother of

Health experts offer advice on how to treat norovirus SEFTON residents are being warned about the norovirus as the winter bug begins to spread. There have been recent reports of schools in the north west being affected by the sickness and diarrhoea bug, so doctors have issued advice to locals living in Sefton. One of the main bits of advice is to stay off school or work until the symptoms have stopped for two days. Norovirus is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK. It's also called the winter vomiting bug because it's more common in winter, although you can catch it at any time of the year. Dr Neil Haslam, deputy medical director at Liverpool University

Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Norovirus is pretty nasty and can make people feel very ill. However, most people do not need hospital care for this type of illness and you can help protect yourself. “It is really important to wash your hands properly with warm soapy water and to sanitise surfaces as this will limit the spread of germs. “If you do have norovirus, ensure you drink plenty of fluids, take paracetamol for any fever, aches and pains, and get plenty of rest. Stay at home to limit the spread to others and don’t share towels, cups or sheets. If you’re experiencing symptoms of norovirus and have relatives in hospital, please don’t visit them to prevent the spread of infection to patients on our wards."

Report by Tom Martin A MAN from Bootle has been handed a Football Banning Order after Liverpool FC and Merseyside Police launched a crackdown on ticket touts. Michael Poole, 45, of Knowsley Road, has been given the three-year ban to stop him entering Anfield. Police have arrested 14 men from across Merseyside after teaming up with the Reds to prevent fans from being ripped off by purchasing either fake or genuine tickets outside Anfield for inflated prices. Police believe the men mainly target visitors to the city who are more vulnerable to be duped by counterfeit tickets. Community Policing Inspector Graeme Rooney said: “We believe that the vast majority of these offenders are targeting visitors to the city, who may not always be aware of what a genuine ticket looks like, and have travelled far and spent big to watch their team. “Regardless of distance travelled though, to be conned in this devious way is completely unacceptable and the feeling of being turned away at the turnstiles must be absolutely devastating. “Our operation will continue on future matchdays, working closely with the club. “Although we’re pleased with the results so far, we also want this to serve as a powerful deterrent Michael Poole in the future. “We'll keep identifying ticket touts and doing all we can to prevent them from ruining people's experience of football and the city. “Liverpool welcomes many thousands of tourists every week and we are determined to ensure that those who come to our city are protected from such fraud. Our advice to any supporters is clear: don't buy from ticket touts, it's a massive risk and you might just be throwing money down the drain." You can report any information to officers at the game, pass information via @MerPolCC, 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via the club at the following link: www.liverpoolfc.com/corporate/ticket-touting

LETTERS to the Editor Accidents will happen unless standard of driving improves Re: The article about Switch Island and demands that a flyover be built. All that this would achieve is vehicles colliding at greater speed. Until the standard of driving improves, there will always be collisions. Instead of spending the money on a flyover, simply install speed cameras at each set of lights, coupled with speed cameras on the approach to Switch Island, off the M57. I have counted as many as five vehicles going through a red light on each set of lights at this junction. You will note that there are no ‘red lighters’ at Northway/ Hall Lane junction on the north bound carriageway (or the other junctions in Sefton where this system is installed).

Spare a thought for homeless vets As we look forward to the festive period and temperatures continue to drop, we must spare a thought for those who have served our country but find themselves homeless. Research shows around 300-400 veterans end up on the streets every year, and up to 4,000 require urgent support to find accommodation. Under the Armed Forces Covenant, veterans have access to enhanced housing support, but far too many still fall through the gaps and miss out on this. The No Homeless Veterans campaign (www.nohomelessveterans.org.uk), funded by the Forces in Mind Trust, calls on local authorities, homelessness charities and advice agencies to ‘Think Veteran’ when people approach them in housing need, in order to effectively identify former Servicemen and women and channel them through to the best possible support. The fact that this Christmas there will be veterans sleeping in inappropriate accommodation, in hostels and on the streets, is unacceptable. By working with local authorities and providing a clear pathway to housing, we can put an end to this and make sure no veteran is without a home at Christmas.

The standard of driving has declined simply because there is no chance of anyone being caught, due to a total lack of police traffic patrols. Their time is now spent dealing mainly with the ‘injury ’ collisions. You will note that I avoid the word ‘accident’, that is because in every collision, someone is to blame. I have actually been overtaken whilst driving at 30 mph on roads in Maghull. So, until we manage to control the attitude of idiot drivers, there will always be collisions. Name supplied, By email

My daughter is being evicted without any compensation I read the article in the Champion November 13 regarding people being evicted from high rise blocks. The same thing is happening to my daughter, with the exception that my daughter cannot get any help from anyone. The reason she is getting evicted? The private housing company want to sell the house in Waterloo. After 14 years of tenancy she has not even been offered the chance to buy it. Date of eviction? January 3 Yes you heard right. Straight after Christmas and New Year.

Road ‘works’ is causing chaos

Mr G Waters, Maghull

School staff outstanding I am sure this letter will be just one of many you receive this week in praise of the staff and governing body of Lydiate Primary School. In unprecedented circumstances, the actions of the governing body in firstly ensuring the safety of our children and then providing them with an education in a new venue have been outstanding. From a communication point of view they could not have been faulted. The tireless work of all involved who have given up so much of their time for our children will never be forgotten. The sight of seeing those 300 children arriving for school at the Maghull High site on Thursday to be greeted with high fives and hugs from their teachers is one that will stay with me for a long time. Any child would be lucky to call Lydiate Primary their school. Liz Jacob, Maghull

Bonfire brought people together In response to the letter from ‘Annoyed, (Lydiate)’. I can advise that many of the residents of the surrounding locale of Clent Gardens are happy to use the build-up to bonfire night to dispose of their garden refuse, unwanted furniture and general rubbish. For many years the neighbours of Clent Gardens and Clent Avenue have provided free food and refreshments for anyone who attends the bonfire, harnessing a community spirit at least for one night only, at a time when community spirit appears defunct. I have attended this event many times and in recent years am aware that the neighbours and residents have also collected voluntary contributions from visitors to the bonfire and given the resultant money to charities. Finally, following bonfire night the consequential detritus was always collected by the council within 48 hours. This is no longer the case. It can only be assume that the cuts to public services over the previous nine years are the reason that the council now take a lot longer to clear up any left-over mess.

Ed Tytherleigh, Cobseo (Confederation of Service Charities) Housing Cluster

My wife and myself drive from Maghull to a nursing home in Moss Lane in Orrell Park each week. The journey usually takes about 20 to 25 minutes, but the last couple of Saturdays it’s taken us about 55 minutes. The reason was the so called road works in between Switch Island and Netherton Way. There is just a single lane open in all that distance because of the hundreds of traffic cones. I have never seen any workmen along that stretch. Sefton Council have some explaining to do.

She has been offered nothing from One Vision Housing. We are now desperately trying to find a private rent somewhere for her. She won’t be offered any compensation. It would be a great help if she was being offered the £7,000 compensation the high rise tenants are getting. The worst thing Sefton Council has done to this area was to let One Vision Housing take over the housing stock.

Equally annoyed, Maghull

Road safety campaign want ‘Bobby Zones’ at every school in Sefton Report by Kenny Parker AFTER succeeding in having road safety measures put in place at all schools in Maghull, Lydiate and most recently, Melling, local campaigners are hoping they can persuade other local councils in Sefton to follow suit by introducing ‘Bobby Zones’ to encourage motorists to slow down. Bobby Zones are the idea the Bobby Colleran Trust which was set up by the parents of six-year-old Bobby Colleran who was tragically killed in a road accident outside his school in West Derby in 2014. The trust provides support in creating safe Bobby Zones outside of schools whereby signs are erected to encourage motorists to slow down. It also provides support with school assemblies on road safety for children, specially designed children’s books on road safety, free hi vis vests for school children, bereavement support for children, as well as

donations to organisations helping to promote road safety. Dave Wilson originally campaigned for road safety measures in 2015 for St Andrews Primary School in Maghull, where his granddaughter attends with the backing of Dave Hughes, a Maghull Radio talk show host who was a lollipop man at the school. They recently spoke to Aintree Parish Council about introducing the schemes to Aintree schools. Dave Hughes said: “They were most enthusiastic at what we presented to them and have agreed to put this to the vote at their next meetings.” They now hope to persuade the other six local councils in the borough to also join up. Saying that is not expensive to purchase the Bobby Zone banners and posters –they cost £175 for each school – Dave Hughes has asked for the Champion’s help in publicising their campaign. “It is already having a slowing down effect in our area and with your support, all Sefton’s primary and junior schools could become Bobby Zones,” he said.

AWARD-WINNING EXPERTISE

There are plenty of thoughtful touches and services available to make life a little bit easier too. The apartments have been designed with later life in mind and every detail, from the height of the door handles to the layout of the bathroom has been considered to make everyday life safer, simpler and more comfortable for homeowners. Each of the private apartments will include generous living areas and contemporary fitted kitchens with integrated appliances. Many have stylish en-suite shower rooms and separate bathrooms, and for that all-important outside space, most apartments feature a walk on balcony or patio area, overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens.

A COMMUNITY ON YOUR DOORSTEP

MOVING MADE EASY

Adlington picked up the much-coveted What House? Gold Award for Best Retirement Development in 2017 for their Otley development in West Yorkshire. Alexandra Johnson, Adlington Sales and Marketing Director comments:

PEACE OF MIND Adlington’s real point of difference is being able to offer round the clock, 24-hour on-site support, and tailored care should it ever be needed, in the future. By offering optional and flexible care, homeowners and their families have peace of mind, which is cited as one of the key reasons why so many people choose to invest in an Adlington apartment. Security is of paramount importance and a sophisticated emergency call system operates in each apartment and throughout all the communal areas and gardens, as well as a security video entry so you only allow access to people you know and trust.

“Adlington’s vision is to empower our older generation to live a long, happy and healthy life. By creating spacious homes in safe and secure environments with active communities - we are responding to the changing needs of retirees and helping individuals live an independent life.” Karen Chicken, General Manager at The Sailings, adds: “We care about our Homeowners and consider them part of our extended family. Our priority is always to do the best for them - whether that’s by arranging a personal health care package, helping them with everyday tasks, or respecting their independence.”

A SHIPPING firm which is one of the biggest customers at Peel Ports has agreed a new 15 year contract extension. Atlantic Container Line, has signed a new contract for container and rollon/roll-off operations at the Port of Liverpool until 2035. ACL is already the largest ocean carrier operating at Liverpool’s Royal Seaforth Container Terminal and the port’s longest serving container carrier. Peel Ports bosses say the agreement shows ACL’s confidence in the growing volume of transatlantic trade between the UK and North America, as well as the firm’s commitment to the Port of Liverpool and the strong relationship forged for more than 50 years.

Green-fingered volunteers rewarded for hard work Report by Tom Martin SEFTON’S green-fingered volunteers have been recognised for their hard work and dedication at a special awards evening in the borough. Sefton Council’s Green Sefton team welcomed 29 volunteer groups to St Luke’s Church, in Crosby, to celebrate their continued efforts to maintain and improve a huge number of parks, community greenspaces and coastal areas across the borough. Each group was presented an award as a token of thanks by Sefton’s Mayor, Cllr June Burns and Sefton Council’s Chief Executive, Dwayne Johnson. The attendees included ‘Friends of’ groups, In Bloom Volunteers, community action

groups and other community organisations. Mark Shaw, Green Sefton’s Service Manager, said: “Thanks to our dedicated volunteers our parks, greenspaces and coastal areas continue to be clean, green and beautiful. They are true friends and advocates of Sefton and we have seen this highlighted time and time again especially during our Year of Friendship. “Events like this are so important to help us to celebrate and honour the very special people who volunteer their time to help make Sefton a better place.

Festive boating plans scuppered by dog woe and home hassles HAVE you ever felt that things were simply getting on top of you? Too many difficult and complicated things trying to happen at once? Well for me, they are. Poor old Tina is in the wars - again - though at least this time her problems are not life-threatening, so that’s one comfort. No, this time I noticed a swelling on her nose, just beneath the left eye. Immediately I suspected trouble with a back tooth and a visit to the vet confirmed my suspicion that she had an abscess, though what I hadn’t guessed was that she had a similar though smaller problem on the other side as well. Anyway, she was booked in for minor surgery and though successful in itself, the larger abscess left a sort of passageway linking her nose to her mouth which might or might not heal itself. Meanwhile, Tina is behaving quite normally so touch wood (and I am!) - all should now be well. The really odd thing is that while she had those bad teeth she was still keen to eat biscuits which

truly amazed me. The vet again pointed to dogs being more able to conceal pain than we are, but agreed that Tina is a tough old dog, hopefully with a long life ahead of her. But ‘when sorrows come they come not single spies but in battalions’ (to quote Shakespeare). I have for some time been meaning to get my home cleared of all the accumulated detritus so that I could have it rewired throughout. All my household electrical, from the stone-age fuse box to the ancient (and defective) wiring throughout the place badly needs fixing and I had just started the process of getting it all done when Tina’s problems raised their heads. All in all, with both Tina and Cinders to look after and consider while all this is going on, plus still trying to cook hot food for the three of us and go out actually to buy it, I see problems, big prob-

lems, ahead. Still, once everything both canine and household are truly sorted, the world should be a far better place for me. One casualty of the present goings-on though is a three-quarters laid plan to spend Christmas on my boat, Manxman has effectively been scuppered. Which is a shame because I had kind of worked myself into the idea. Apparently, several boat owners (and indeed boat hirers) do spend a few days over the Christmas period on the river and it was an idea that my late brother George and I had kicked around for several years without ever quite plucking up the courage to try it. This year though I had got as far as arranging transport from Norwich station to my home boatyard and was planning what kind of festive lighting the electrical system of Manxman could

sustain. Indeed I had more or less decided that the trip should go ahead before I get too old to look with reasonable equanimity to the possibility of ice, fog and/or gale force winds and flooding. Anyway, for the present at least it is an idea which I can fish out again this time next year when at least the problems of home and dogs should be well and truly sorted. I had even got so far this year with my plans to have bought a nice little (artificial of course) Christmas tree, complete with its own lights, to put in the cockpit window. It has long been one of my Christmas practices to buy at least one new Christmas decoration each year. Last year I obtained a cute little Polar Bear which mysteriously changes colour (and no, it doesn’t appear to have any moving parts, at least none that I can see). In fact, I was so enamoured of it that I bought a second bear for some very good friends of mine who are similarly puzzled as to how it works.

Locals urged to support foodbanks SEFTON residents are being urged to support their local foodbanks throughout December. This year, the borough’s foodbanks have launched a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ which encourages more people to give, rather than receive, this Christmas. The calendar gives a suggested donation for each day of the month and includes essential items like tinned tomatoes, tinned potatoes, instant mash and tinned fruit as well as toiletries and Christmas items like chocolate, nuts, stuffing and gravy. A spokesperson for the council said: “Many people can feel the extra pinch during the holidays which means there is a higher demand for foodbanks. Residents are encouraged to donate what they can by choosing one of the days on the calendar or as many as they can afford to.” Donations can be made to one of the following donation points: Bootle Leisure Centre, Meadows Leisure Centre, Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, Netherton Activity Centre, Litherland Sports Park and Dunes Splash World Leisure Centre, Southport, and Bootle Town Hall For more information on how you can support Sefton’s Foodbank Network visit www.southsefton.foodbank.org.uk

Charity arranges blessing of ship on maiden voyage Crew made request after volunteers from Seafarers Centre went on board to offer support and friendship

Visit us @ www.ChampNews.com l 25

Health experts urge locals to use 111 service for non-emergencies HEALTH experts are urging local residents who have non-life threatening medical concerns to use NHS 111. NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting the national ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign, focussing on different services over winter, one of which being NHS 111.

NHS 111 is operated by fully trained advisers 24 hours a day, seven days a week who will listen to your medical concerns and, if necessary, arrange for you to speak to relevant healthcare professionals, such as a nurse, doctor or emergency dentist. You can access the service by dialling 111 or at www.111.nhs.uk.

By Champion Reporter ECUMENICAL charity Liverpool Seafarers Centre arranged a special service to commemorate a vessel’s maiden voyage to Western Europe. The Crosby-based charity, recently named best seafarers centre in the world in the International Seafarer Welfare Awards, was asked to organise a blessing of the bridge and engine control room of the MV Atlantic Prism before it departed Liverpool. The crew of the bulk carrier made the request after the centre went onboard to offer support and friendship while the vessel was in dock. Father Dominic Curran, parish priest at Our Lady Star of the Sea RC Church in Seaforth celebrated mass on the ship and conducted the blessing. More than 20 members of the ship’s crew attended and were able to receive Holy Communion before setting sail. Chief executive John Wilson joined the seafarers and said the opportunity for the crew to come together in worship had been gratefully received. He said: “Seafarers are unable to attend church for long periods and, for many, their faith is hugely important to them. “We visit ships and spend time with thousands of seafarers every year.

Atlantic Prism.

“We can organise church services and mass if the crew make a request. “A recent study showed that seafarers were at a greater risk of developing mental health problems due to long periods spent away from home, long working hours and isolation. “By offering emotional and pastoral support while the vessel is in port, Liverpool Seafarers Centre, through its outreach, is able to contribute to alleviating those feelings and improving the general wellbeing of the crew. “We have heard from the captain of the

ship since who told us the mass and blessing, whilst very special, was well received by all onboard.” Liverpool Seafarers Centre has a dedicated team of staff members and volunteers to visit vessels on a daily basis, offering a listening ear to those who wish to talk or to vent their frustration or anxiety. Liverpool Seafarers Centre, a registered charity, is totally reliant upon donations to enable it to continue its valuable work. No state nor statutory funding is received.

Judge brands drug using mum a liar and tells her: ‘don’t try your tears on me’ Report by Lynda Roughly A JUDGE has torn a strip off a Seaforth mum and branded her “a liar.” He had given drug user Emma Clague a chance after she was caught allowing her home to be used as a £52,000 drugs factory - but she has ended up back before him after breaching conditions of her sentence. And meanwhile she had also been caught with drugs again after a row between her and her daughter at a Travel Lodge hotel in the city led to police being called. She appeared before the city magistrates for possessing cannabis and amphetamine at the hotel and for failing to attend the crown court for breaching her suspended sentence. They remanded the 39-year-old in custody for a week and sent back to Judge Stuart Driver, QC, who had given her the 21 month suspended prison sentence in August. She was due before him a week ago after failing to attend probation appointments as part of that sentence order - but she failed to attend and a warrant which led to her arrest was then issued. After hearing that she had not gone to the probation office after the earlier sentence hearing and had not received any appointments as she was homeless and had been ‘sofa surfing’ Judge Driver gave her a conditional discharge for 12 months. But he told an uncomfortable-looking Clague, formerly of Maple Close, Seaforth, that he was only doing so as she had just spent a week in custody. “As far as you are concerned I am your judge and

I’m going to tell you what I think of you. I think you are a liar. “When the police came to the hotel you lied to them about the drugs. In the last weeks you told lie after lie but don’t think you can fool the crown court. “I’m giving you a last chance. Don’t try your tears on me, it won’t get you anywhere. “I don’t think you’ll do this. I think you will fail and you will come back to this court and when you do it is almost certain I will send you down for 21 months but I’m giving you a last chance.” He told Clague, who was pulling various facial expressions, “Don’t perform dramatics in the dock, it’ll get you nowhere with me.” As part of the suspended prison sentence for her previous offence of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply the judge had ordered her to carry out 25 days rehabilitation activities - and he has now added an extra five days. Judge Driver told pony-tailed Clague, “If I see you again you know where you are going.” Liverpool Crown Court was told by Cheryl Mottram, prosecuting, that police were called to the Travel Lodge on October 25 “and found a small bag of cannabis and white powder which turned out to be amphetamine. “She was arrested and interviewed and accepted the cannabis had been bought for £10 for her own use. She claimed the amphetamine had been left in her bag and she thought it was glucose. Matthew O’Neill, defending, explained that the mother-of-two had had to leave her home and had been living at various addresses and sofa-surfing but her mother, who has a new partner, has now said she can live with them at their home in Stanley Road, Bootle.

Scouse Snow White was ‘King of the pantomimes’ Review by Ron Ellis Scouse Snow White Royal Court Theatre, Liverpool

Nataliia Temnyk

Nataliia wowed the audience at finale of Wagner Society Singing Competition OPERA Viva is congratulating their colleague, singer Nataliia Temnyk, who wowed the audience in the finale of the Wagner Society Singing Competition, held last week in London. Nataliia who comes from Ukraine sang two arias, one by Wagner and another by Verdi, and earned a standing ovation and the Audience Prize at the prestigious event at London’s Wigmore Hall, One critic who was present, posted the following review: "Finally, I need to take a breath before announcing this young woman. She is Ukranian, petite with a sublime voice! Her Wagner aria Elsa’s Dream (Lohengrin), was superbly

executed but it was singing Verdi’s Ave Maria (Otello), that Nataliia Temnyk brought the house down! “Goose bumps, heart racing, I dropped all my papers when I rose from my seat." Nataliia's magical soprano voice has already impressed the singers and audience of Opera Viva, at her debut at last month’s Opera Gala at St Mary's College, Crosby and they are pleased to announce that she will be singing the role of Adina, the heroine of Donizetti’s much loved comedy, The Elixir of Love, which the company will be performing across Merseyside between March 27 and April 4, 2020.

priate howls of approval from an audience. And that’s without the unscripted asides. Keddy Sutton reprised her 2018 role as Mayor Joe, complete with the familiar bald pate. Her unexpected ukulele rendition version of Joe Dolce’s ‘Shadup you face’ was a scream and brought the house down. Newcomer, Samatha Arends, made her debut with Nana Dwarf, her appealing puppet who, on this showing, must make a return visit next year. Jamie Clark as the sexy Genie and Emma Bispham, (understudy) completed the

cast. The hits kept coming throughout the evening, Uptown Girl, Money Money Money, plus romantic songs like Close to You and Windmills of Your Mind and a traditional version of Jimmie Rodgers’ classic country hit, In the Jailhouse Now. Written by Kevin Fearon and directed by Chris Mellor, the tempo kept a fast pace throughout and the best thing I can say about this show is ‘it’s a typical Royal Court pantomime’ and nothing could be better than that. Star Rating: 9 out of 10. King of the pantos. Not to be missed.

A SLICK, fast moving panto, full of popular songs, loads of jokes, irreverent without being crude and every bit as good as last year’s smash hit, Scouse Cinderella. The curtain opened to reveal a truly dazzling set, worthy of a Royal Performance, with a frosty sparkling dome which revolved into a cosy little, walk-in cottage with twinkling coloured lights and pixies and, above it, a platform on top. When the three-piece band led by M.D.Howard Grey, struck up a rousing version of Madonna’s Material Girl, Lindzi Germaine strode onto the roof of the dome bellowing the vocals and electrified the audience who clapped along enthusiastically. Lindzi played the Evil Queen who hires the Vampire Christmas Killer (Stephen Fletcher) to kill Snow White (Hayley Sheen) but first she has to deal with The Huntsman (Michael Fletcher) who has fallen in love with Snow White. Centre stage was Andrew Schofield as The Narrator, who performed a one-man comedy show, the gags coming along thick and fast and totally topical with all the expected references to Everton, Man Utd, the Wirral, etc which brought the appro-

Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways. Celebrated for its original score including the Academy Award-winning song Falling Slowly, Once is a spell-binding and uplifting story of hopes and dreams. Once embarks on its UK tour after runs on Broadway and in the West End, and having won awards across the world including the Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album, eight Tony Awards and an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. Daniel Healy and Emma Lucia return to the roles of ‘Guy ’ and ‘Girl’ after receiving critical and audience acclaim in the production’s premiere last year at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch.

SPORT Skipper scores brace as Mariners see off Kendal

Ruthless Bucks bag seven goals Bootle 7 Avro 2 BOOTLE hit seven goals past Avro at the Berry Street Garage Stadium in a ruthless display, scoring five goals before halftime writes Connor O’Neill. It came just four days after the Bucks came back from behind to beat Longridge Town and end a run of three straight defeats. A Rob Doran brace squashed in between a Carl Peers strike did the damage last Tuesday, and Peers was back amongst the goals here, firing his side ahead on seven minutes. A quick-fire double from Cameron Dalton then handed the Bucks a three-goal lead inside the opening 16 minutes. Avro would get one back through Kiarno Samms, but John Connolly increased his side's lead on the half-hour mark before Connor Millington finished a fine team move for number five before the half-time interval. Alexander Frost then put the ball through his own net a minute into the second half before Carl Peers, after Kyle Jacobs had netted a consolation, completed the scoring two minutes from time. Bootle have no game on Saturday as their scheduled home league fixture against Runcorn Town has been postponed. The Bucks are next in action when they travel to league leaders 1874 Northwich on December, Saturday 14. The Cheshire side are currently two points clear of Charnock Richard at the top of the North West Counties Premier Division on 35 points with Bootle sitting in third place on 32 points

Penalty miss costs Maghull Maghull 2 Chester Nomads 3 MAGHULL could not have wished for a better start when they took the lead in the first minute of their West Cheshire League First Division encounter against second in the table Chester Nomads last Saturday. Leading scorer Jordan Holmes it was who gave them that advantage when he registered his ninth goal of the season but the visitors recovered from that early setback when Dale Harris levelled matters. New signing Colin Quirk regained the lead for the hosts as he netted from close range just before the interval but once again Chester bounced back after the restart and went in front themselves through efforts from Joe Cossins and then Jordan Davies. The home side should have earned themselves a share of the spoils five minutes from time when they were awarded a penalty but Quirk fired the resultant spot kick wildly over the crossbar. So a third consecutive defeat for Joe Burns side who now find themselves in the lower reaches of the league table with only ten points from their nine league games played. Next Saturday they are again at home and will be looking to return to winning ways as they play hosts to Wallasey based Ashville who are one point ahead of them in the table. Kick off for the game is 2pm.

Marine 4 Kendal 1 MARINE came back from a disappointing cup exit in midweek to beat Kendal Town convincingly on Saturday, writes Tom Clarke. A Brett Mbalanda goal sandwiched by two from captain Niall Cummins, and one from Craig Lindfield following a Christian Sloan consolation. Cummins struck the bar just seconds into the contest, before hitting the back of the net after four minutes to put his side one up with a sliding finish. Ex-Mariner Morgan Bacon was in goal for the visitors, and was forced into several smart saves throughout the contest, including from a Kenny Strickland long shot early on. Brett Mbalanda found a way past Bacon to make it 2-0 after 16 minutes, though, with a rebound from a Cummins shot. Marine continued to test the 'keeper throughout the first half, with Kendal content to allow their hosts the majority of possession.

Aaron Fleming had Kendal's best chance of the opening period, but his effort was just over Shamal George's bar. George was forced into a save from Fleming shortly after the break, but tipped the winger's shot over the crossbar this time. Cummins nearly grabbed his second of the game after an hour, but Bacon made a great save to deny his former Captain. Bacon couldn't prevent Cummins from the spot, though, who made it 3-0 after a foul in the box from the stopper on substitute James Ellison. Christian Sloan pulled one back for Kendal with ten minutes to go, just before debutant George Newell hit the post for Marine. Craig Lindfield closed the contest on 87 minutes, swiping in to end it at 4-1 after Ethan Devine had struck the woodwork. Marine now travel to Clitheroe next Saturday, before hosting Radcliffe in the Integro League Cup on Tuesday December 10, at 7.45pm.

Southport & Birkdale CC miss out again on hosting Lancashire fixture SOUTHPORT and Birkdale Cricket Club will not be hosting a Lancashire county fixture next season. It is the second successive season that S&B have missed out, with Sedbergh School in Cumbria selected – as it was in 2019. Sedburgh is in fact set to host two games in 2020, following the release of next season’s fixture list. But Paul Allott, the county’s director of cricket, has

Remy match off LITHERLAND Remyca’s scheduled fixture at Rylands on Saturday was postponed due to a frozen pitch. Remyca, who are currently bottom of the North West Counties Premier Division table host second placed Charnock Richard tomorrow (Wednesday). Remy have no match on Saturday but are away at Whitchurch Alport on Monday, December 9.

Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

offered some hope of a return to the Lancashire roster for Southport and Birkdale in the near future. He said: “While there is not a fixture at Southport and Birkdale Cricket Club next year, Lancashire CCC has a very good relationship with those at Trafalgar Road and remain committed to working closely together. “As part of that, the club’s groundstaff team will provide support with the aim of get-

ting Southport back on the rota, possibly as early as the 2021 season.” Lancashire will start their County Championship Division One campaign, following last summer’s promotion, with a home fixture against Kent at Old Trafford, starting on Sunday, April 12. For the first time since 2002, Lancashire will play all seven home County Championship fixtures at Old Trafford.

Liverpool will host the T20 Blast opener against Northants Steelbacks at the end of May. And Sedbergh School will host a National Counties 50over warm-up fixture between Lancashire against Cumberland, and Lancashire’s One-Day Cup game against Middlesex in July. The Red Rose county return to Blackpool’s Stanley Park for a Royal London Cup fixture against Worcestershire.

St. Mary’s College Crosby At St. Mary’s College, academic excellence comes as standard. As one of the Northwest’s leading academic schools, our public examination results are consistently amongst the best in the area. St. Mary’s College has ranked top of the Department for Education’s Sefton GCSE results table for the last two years. However, success at St. Mary’s is measured by much more than examination results. Our First XV Rugby Team are the 2019 Lancashire Plate Champions and our Senior Netball Team are the 2019 Sefton Netball Tournament Champions; just a couple of examples of our pupils’ impressive sporting achievements. Our choirs, orchestras and bands perform regularly at home and abroad, with the annual Festival of Music at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall and Proms in the Park fireworks concert particular highlights. Add to this the outstanding achievements in art, drama, dance, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and many other areas and you will see that our pupils are inspired to perform in more ways than one.

Visiting Day: Friday 10th January, 9am - 3pm 11+ Entrance Examination: Friday 31st January Sixth Form at St. Mary’s College provides an experience like no other, helping students achieve excellent academic results and developing skills and values for life. A Levels are taught by subject specialists and teaching groups are small. As a result, students achieve excellent examination results. More than a third of students achieved three or more A*, A or B grades in 2019. In addition to three A Levels, all students take the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

This helps students develop their independent research skills and significantly boosts their university application success. Students receive individual support with their university applications and the majority of our students are offered places at their first choice university.
