YET ANOTHER PUB IS TO BE TURNED INTO FLATS

INSIDE THIS WEEK...

Plan approved just weeks after similar proposal was passed to convert former Crosby Hotel into apartments Report by Tom Martin

YET another historic pub in south Sefton is to be turned into flats after permission was granted by the council. The former Doric pub in Seaforth to be turned into apartments. The Champion reported last week how a planning application had been submitted to turn the former pub, on Rawson Road, into a residential facility and this has now been approved. It's the second pub in less than two months which has been targeted by developers, with plans to also turn The Crosby Pub, on Liverpool Road, into flats. After The Crosby Pub proposal was submitted by Enterprise Inns in January, locals spoke of their sadness at losing another pub in the local area. The Doric pub was rebranded as the Cock and Seaman by the AtWill Pubs group in 2015, which caused a stir among local residents with some The former Doric pub. claiming it was an “inappropriate” name. The owners said the choice of name was down to the area’s strong connection with the docks. A council report published this week following the decision to approve the apartment plans reveals how some nearby residents had objected to the apartment plan over parking concerns. However, the council has attempted to ease these concerns by saying there is enough space to park on the street. The report states: “The premises has been empty for some time and it appears that a previous attempt to bring the pub back into use as 'The Cock and Seaman' was unsuccessful, so this proposal will bring back an attractive empty building The former Doric pub, top, and the Stockwell Mount and the Crosby pubs which are to be turned into apartments. to a useful purpose. “Two residents have raised concerns over the In the same year, plans were submitted to Sefton It’s not the first time in recent years that closed-down existing parking arrangements, as the development is pubs have been targeted by developers.

Stash of weapons found in park A TERRIFYING stash of weapons has been found in Rimrose Valley Country Park. Police community support officers (PCSO) made the discovery during patrols of the south Sefton park and a spokesperson for Merseyside Police has welcomed the find by saying “more potential weapons have been taken off the streets.” They seized the weapons on Friday, February 1, which included what appears to be a large machete, an axe, a penknife and a kitchen knife. Anyone with information is asked to contact @MerPolCC, speak to local officers, or you can contact 101 or @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.

AN alleged leader of a drug trafficking gang which was caught out in Crosby five years ago is still on the run. Dominic McInally, 25, is wanted by police as they believe he headed a drugs gang which was making £1.25million every month before they were stopped. In 2014, several members of the gang were arrested in Crosby after a large quantity of cocaine was found hidden inside a car stopped by Merseyside Police. Five members of the gang have received sentences totalling 48 years but McInally has evaded capture ever since and has now been named by the National Crime Agency as one of the UK's most wanted and is believed to be hiding out in Spain. A spokesperson for the NCA said: “McInally is the alleged leader of a drug trafficking gang that expected to bank £1.25m every month. “Members of the gang travelled to the border of France and Belgium to pick up six kilos of cocaine. “The package, secreted in a hidden compartment inside a Seat Leon car, was

intercepted by police officers when they swooped on the gang in Crosby in January 2014. McInally evaded capture. Five members of the gang have received sentences totalling 48 years. “He is described as 5ft 8ins tall and has blond hair.” If you have information, you can contact Merseyside Police on Twitter (@MerPolCC) or by calling 101, or by ringing Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.

Action promised on late night dock noise

Cash boost on way for community projects COMMUNITY projects and services in Crosby have been boosted with £64,500 handed out to four different groups. Sefton Council uses a Community Transition Fund to support certain projects which can benefit local communities in the borough. The latest series of donations are mainly from Crosby, with £25,000 going to Bath Street Marine Table Tennis Club, £9,000 to Marine Football Club, £22,000 to the Waterloo-based Sefton Carers Centre and £8,450 to St Nicholas’ Church, in Blundellsands. See below for each project and how the money will be spent:

Report by Tom Martin PEEL Ports has promised to investigate reports of late night noise from the dock after residents contacted the Champion about being unable to sleep at night because of the disturbance. Scores of residents who live near the Port of Liverpool say they are being kept up at night due to a ‘tortuous, constant drone which never stops’. Sefton Council are monitoring the situation, and Peel Ports has now said they will look into the complaints in the hope of pinpointing the source of the late night racket. Several residents have contacted the Champion about the issue. One, who lives on Derby Road and claims his family have been kept awake at night for months, and believes the noise comes from a large ship which is unloaded during the night and sends out a “low frequency noise” . He said: “I live right on top of it and it’s so loud. “My son is only six and he comes into my room at night scared and asking what the noise is. It’s been going on for months.” Another said: “I had a broken nights sleep thanks to industrial noise which I think originates from the docks. It’s not the first time and I’m concerned that it will grow to be more and more frequent. “What I object to even more than the occasional loud bangs is the constant low frequency throbbing. “This type of sound has dangers to health and I would like to know what safeguards the council has in place to prevent this type of offence being committed as it doesn’t seem to be having any effect at the moment.” Another person stated: “I couldn't sleep again last night because of the noise from the dockyard.” Someone who lives near Derby Road posted: “I live off Derby Road and noise from the dock goes on all night.” while another said that “This is happening all the time and I’m sick of complaining - nothing is ever done about it.” Some residents think the cause of the noise could be a scrap metal firm based on the dock. One declared: “The noise is probably from one of the scrap metal merchant firms. Noise levels are in place and the Port of Liverpool are responsible to investigate it and tell whoever it is to cut noise level down. “It's disturbing people who could be seriously ill and getting all round care. They should not have to put up with it.” A spokesperson for Peel Ports said: “We sincerely regret any disturbance to our neighbours. “As a responsible operator we are investigating the cause of the complaints and what steps we can take to reduce the noise.” Peel Ports has been experiencing growth in recent months, with the Champion reporting how B&M opted to increase its cargo into the Port of Liverpool by 30% following frustrations with delay-struck southern ports, as well as the docks getting new shipping line links with Europe and America. In August 2018, Peel launched a rail freight service to transport containers from the Port of Liverpool to Scotland, which they described last month as being a “major success.”

Cafe launches petition after restaurant plan is rejected by council Report by Tom Martin OWNERS of a Crosby cafe seem to have divided the community with their plans to transform their business into a late-night restaurant. Mustard & Co, on College Road, had applied to Sefton Council “to allow the premises to operate as a restaurant” and open until 8pm from Monday to Wednesday and 10pm from Thursday to Sunday. However, the local authority dismissed the application at a Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday, February 6 after councillors voted 7-5 against the proposal. This was after some nearby residents expressed concerns it would lead to noise and disturbance late at night, with others claiming it would lead to a “South Road effect” on College Road. More than 700 people have now signed a petition launched in the hope of persuading the council to reverse the decision. Owners Steve Rice, Oliver Philips and Andrew

Flynn state in the petition: “We want to bring to Crosby a quality place to dine with family and friends from 5-10pm and have trialled and tested a fantastic Italian offering that would appeal to families and couples. “As many of you are aware, we have put our heart and souls into this little business and have been liaising with Sefton Council since September, 2018. “It's a rather confusing matter. We have already been granted our alcohol licence until the hours of 10.30pm although our current planning permission only allows us to open until 6pm making the drinks licence null and void after 6pm - where's the sense in that?” They added that over the last few months they have been sharing information with the planning department and have spent more than £5,000 on application fees, plans, reports and additional equipment to meet any requirements that were asked of them from the planning department. They say this was accepted and passed by all relevant Sefton Council departments and they were given the green light by the chief planning officer to be recommended for approval.

Bath Street Marine Table Tennis Club £25,000: The table tennis club is currently based at Marine FC's stadium, the Marine Travel Arena, but the building is due to be demolished as part of revamp work. They therefore want to build their own base in the stadium car park. Marine FC - £9,000: The money will go towards Marine's ongoing fundraising to carry out a wide-scale stadium upgrade. The Crosby club has a timber building at the front of the ground and rear side of the car park which is 90 years old. It is in a poor state and they are desperate to demolish the building and replace it with a new modern prefab unit which will house a club shop, a community room, a first aid room, an office, snack kiosk and a supporters club shop. The total cost of the job is £118,303 and so far they have raised around £109,000, so the £9,000 donation from the council's Community Transition Fund should push them up to their target. Sefton Carers Centre - £22,000: Sefton Carers Centre, on South Road, Waterloo, offers a wide range of free services to unpaid carers with a membership of more than 10,700 unpaid carers in Sefton. The money will be used so they can start a one year pilot Parent Carer Pilot Development Project to extend their support to Parent Carers, particularly those most vulnerable to carer breakdown. Their vision is for a comprehensive holistic service to parent carers. St Nicholas’ Church - £8,450: The church has ambitious plans to become a “community hub”, and they currently host a wide range of events, such as toddler groups, cookery classes and a choir. The money will be used to make repairs to their heating system so that they can open the church itself up for more community use.

THREE police vehicles had their windows smashed by a yob who jumped on them as they were parked outside Aintree Hospital. The cars were parked in designated emergency vehicle bays at the site in Lower Lane, Fazakerley, when the incident happened at just after 2am on Wednesday, February 6. An unknown offender was seen to jump onto the bonnets of the vehicles causing extensive damage before making off on a suspected stolen Yamaha bike. All three vehicles have now been recovered for repairs. Chief Inspector Diane Pownall said: “This is just mindless criminal damage. “These three emergency vehicles will now have to be taken off the road to be repaired which will cost thousands of pounds. “I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Aintree Hospital who witnessed this incident, anyone who saw the bike in the area or anyone who may have captured anything on CCTV or dash-cam footage to contact us.” Anyone with information is asked to DM @MerPolCC, call 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting log 0048 of February 6.

Teacher inspires pupils to raise £16,000 for cancer charity

CROSBY DAY CENTRE OPEN

Report by Tom Martin KINDHEARTED pupils at a Crosby school have been thanked by Macmillan Cancer Support for raising £16,000 for the charity. Youngsters from Sacred Heart Catholic College were inspired by their music teacher, Isabel Morison, who has brain cancer who has received support from the charity. They have held a number of fundraising events including a fun day and a 5k race around last year started by Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, while broadcaster and compare on the day was Debi Jones. While the school raised almost £15,000 from the event, they didn’t anticipate the ripple effect that their fundraising would have on the local community. Their efforts inspired local opera society, Una Voce, to hold an event at the school in October. They donated proceeds from their raffle and another donation of £792 from the year 5 pupils of Valewood Primary School, who decided to hold a ‘water gun fun run’ to support the school. Headteacher, Ian Walker, said: “I was very proud of how staff, parents and pupils past and present all pulled together for our fundraising day for Macmillan

Macmillan. “They were determined to show their love for Isabel and did so in the most generous of ways. “They didn’t anticipate the ripple effect that they would have on their local community who have been inspired by their amazing efforts – as have we.

‘Dangerous’ subway at station is lit up at last Report by Tom Martin A SUBWAY at Blundellsands and Crosby train station has been brightened up with new lights – two years after the Champion reported concerns from residents that it was dark and dangerous. The Champion reported in 2017 how some elderly locals who used the walkway, which takes users underneath the railway line, claimed the lighting is poor and makes them feel unsafe at night. Last week, new lights were installed in the subway to brighten up the path for pedestrians. Local councillor Diane Roscoe said: “Blundellsands ward councillors have used ward funds to have new LED lights fitted in the subway. “The lights are brighter, more energy efficient and should require less maintenance than the previous lights that had been there many years. “The new lighting scheme complements the painting and mural that we organised last year and we are delighted with the overall effect.” Last year, a group of local schoolchildren painted a colourful mural in the subway as a creative way to brighten up the subway.

Railway bridge over canal to be replaced Work will be done to coincide with platform upgrade project Report by Tom Martin A RAILWAY bridge over the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Bootle is to be replaced. The work will coincide with the project to upgrade platforms on the Merseyrail network for its new fleet of trains so there should be no extra disruption to rail users. Network Rail say the work will ‘ensure the bridge is kept safe for the next 100 years.’ The existing bridge deck will be removed between Monday, February 18 and 22, and a 1,000 tonne crane will be used to install a new deck.

Network Rail scheme project manager, Chris Atkins, said: “Working with Merseyrail, we have rescheduled the renewal of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal railway bridge to fit in with the closure of the Southport line while platforms are upgraded. “This will mean that passengers will have the least amount of disruption while we deliver significant benefits to the railway on Merseyside. “Both pieces of work are essential. One will prepare the Merseyrail network for the arrival of its new trains. “The other will ensure the railway bridge that supports the railway in Bootle is kept safe for the next 100 years. Merseyrail’s platform upgrades, which has forced commuters to use rail replacement buses, is part of a wider programme of improvements to accommodate new trains from 2020.

MISTED WINDOWS? UPVC FAULTS?

Report by Tom Martin A SPECIALIST school in Crosby is planning to expand and offer more places for children. Olsen House School, on Liverpool Road, is an independent school for youngsters with Special Educational Needs and currently has a maximum capacity for 40 pupils. The school has submitted plans to Sefton Council for permission to build an extension to provide a kitchen, refurbish the existing classrooms, create a bigger car park and carry out alterations to the outdoor area following the demolition of the existing mobile classroom and storage building. If the plans are approved it could increase the school capacity to 55 Olsen House School, on Liverpool Road “The size of the new extension is based on the size pupils and lead to the employment of three more of dining area and kitchen required to support a teachers and three learning support assistants.

Man in court for second time for having indecent images of children

Couple call time on coffee shop but are happy to hand it over to new local owners

By our Court Reporter A MAN from Crosby with a conviction for making and distributing indecent images of children has appeared in court again after being caught with more images which he also distributed. Kieran Sands, 22, of Moor Lane, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February 6, where he pleaded guilty to two offences of making an indecent image of children on April 9 of 2018, one charge of possession of those images, and one charge of distributing the images on or before April 9 2018. He had been given a 24-month community order at Liverpool Crown Court in June 2016 for making and distributing indecent images when he was also handed a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO). The order includes strict conditions that he must not have possession of any devices that can access the internet, unless they have a facility that saves internet search history and are also approved by police. He is also forbidden from deleting his internet search history. Prosecutor Lynn Clark said: “Intelligence came to light that showed he did have devices. They were found to contain images again of children. In total there were five images, one of category B and four of category C. There was also evidence that they had been distributed.” Ordering probation reports, the magistrates granted Sands unconditional bail and told him to appear for sentencing at Liverpool Crown Court on March 5.

Report by Tom Martin AN independent coffee shop in Waterloo is set to close down next month but lovers of a good brew need not worry as it will be taken over by another local firm.

Council to assess its disability services SEFTON Council will look at new ways to improve its own Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) services after commissioning a new assessment. The local authority has tasked researchers at Edge Hill University to undertake an evaluation of their SEND

services in the borough. The evaluation will involve getting feedback from parents and carers with children and young people who have SEND and aims to help shape and improve the service. Key partners including schools, and health and care services will also be asked to

give their views. The results will then be used to inform policy and development of activities and services related to the needs of young people aged under 25 years with a special educational need or disability. To find out more email public.health@sefton.gov.uk.

Man jailed for trying to fly drone carrying drugs into prison Report by Tom Martin

Transform your garden with an easigrassTM artificial lawn

NO MUD, NO MES S, NO MOWING Plan your outdoor space with easigrassTM Whether you are looking to freshen up a lawn or you are putting together a whole new garden, investing in easigrass is a great way to transform outdoor space. easigrass is becoming ever popular due to its low maintenance, realistic look and dream garden appeal. There’s no mud or mess, no cutting or weeding and it creates beautiful outdoor spaces for family and friends to enjoy.

A MAN who tried to fly a drone into Liverpool Prison to transport drugs and mobile phones to inmates has been jailed for five years. Anthony Cheeney, 29, of Peter Road, Walton, was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court on Wednesday, February 6. The court heard how officers noticed the drone on Hornby Road at around 9pm on Thursday, August 31 2017. The drone was then observed crashing nearby and was recovered, with Class A and B drugs as well as mobile phones and sim cards all found attached. Enquiries identified Cheeney and he was arrested and charged with conveying prohibited articles into prison. Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Constable Chris

The drone which was seized.

Anthony Cheeney

Cook said: “These sentences demonstrate the effective partnership working between Merseyside Police and the prison service. “We are vigilant at all times to attempts to bring items into our prisons, and this and previous sentences should send a message to those who involve themselves in this kind of beha-

viour that they run the risk of being jailed for a significant time for criminal activity, which comes at high risk with low reward. “The security of prisons is of paramount importance and any attempts to breach this security will be treated extremely seriously. “Anyone attempting to bring contraband into a prison will be dealt with robustly to identify, not only those outside of the prison but also those inmates who seek to bypass the law.”

Locals urged to go to pharmacy for minor health concerns SEFTON residents are being urged to see a pharmacist about minor health concerns instead of going to the GP. Health commissioners in the borough say pharmacy teams offer a fast and convenient clinical service for minor health concerns with no appointment needed and use of a private consultation room should it be required. Susanne Lynch, head of medicines management at NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group said: “I urge everyone to make full use of their local pharmacist all year round; they use their clinical expertise together with their practical knowledge to give you the best advice.

“Health services can often become really busy and overstretched over winter. By visiting your local pharmacy with any minor health concerns, you will avoid waiting for an appointment. “Our pharmacists can advise you on what over the counter medicines you may need in this cold weather and let you know about any side effects of medication so it is beneficial to ask their advice.” According the NHS , 27% of GP appointments in England could potentially be treated elsewhere. You can walk into your pharmacy, without an appointment and they will be able to offer advice. Visit www.nhs.uk/pharmacyadvice for more information.

We urgently need good quality furniture to sell in our charity shops. * Please note Sofa’s & Mattresses must be of good quality and meet the British Standards Specification for fire safety. Our House Clearance Service is only available for good quality items which we can sell in our shops.

Good rating for home care provider Report by Henry James

The new Blacks store at Aintree Retail Park.

Outdoor retailers Blacks open store at retail park OUTDOOR retailer Blacks opened a new store at Aintree Shopping Park on Monday, February 11. The store itself takes the place of Maplin, creating around ten new jobs. Blacks has described this new 4,300 square foot store as an “exciting addition” to its portfolio. Shoppers can also order goods online and collect in the Aintree Blacks store. This is Blacks’ 58th store, and

the company are expanding their presence throughout the UK. Chris McGuinnity, head of retail at Blacks commented: “Despite challenging circumstances in the current retail climate, we’re thrilled to be growing our UK store presence and are particularly happy to become a key part of the Aintree community.” “Our store manager Martin Smith and his team are excited to open their doors and look after every customer that pays a visit.”

The service was rated good for safety, good for effectiveness, good for responsiveness, good for being well led and for caring it was rated outstanding. Jonathan Beckett, co-managing director at Right at Home Sefton said: “We were recently inspected for the first time having traded for just over a year and despite being told ‘no new business ever gets an outstanding’ we were in fact rated good across the board but awarded an outstanding rating in the caring domain. “We are super proud as we are also the fastest growing business in the award winning Right at Home UK Franchise Network with the head office based out of Burlington House in Waterloo. “The inspector observed evidence of Right at Home Sefton being, ‘an exceptionally well led business’. “Bearing in mind we the directors come from a completely different background, formerly as business owners in the telecommunications sector, we feel very proud at the team we have assembled and our

LETTERS to the Editor

Let’s have a referendum on councillors

So Maghull Town Council leader Patrick McKinley is worried about flooding in the town. Maybe he should have thought about this before the recent referendum in which we were told 86% of the people voted to accept the Neighbourhood Plan but not how many bothered to vote. Having asked a number of friends and neighbours it has become obvious that many voters did not bother to vote. Our MP and councillors keep telling us of the effect of government cuts but they have no effect on councillors wages and expenses. We have a lord mayor of Sefton then mayor of Southport, Bootle, Formby Crosby, Maghull, Lydiate, Aintree etc. We have 66 councillors on Sefton Council then we have district councils which must number in the region of at least 250 councillors all claiming expenses money which could be used for nurseries, police, nursing homes ,fire stations We could remove at least 50% of our councillors and save money. Could I suggest a referendum on this or are the councillors afraid of the result? Lydiate resident, By email

Tell us what deal you will vote for MP Bill Esterson photoed fellow MPs in the ‘No’ lobby during the defeat of PM Theresa May’s Brexit deal. So whilst we know that Mr Esterson does not like May ’s deal what Brexit solution does he like? I ask because to date I have contacted his office five times in recent weeks asking him to let me know where he stands over Brexit. Sadly, I have received no response at all. Is it too much to ask your MP for their view on a matter and to expect a reply? Tony Robertson, Lydiate

Car park badly Get on your bike needs repairing for the British Heart Foundation Re: Article in the Champion on the elderly woman who was badly injured after she fell over uneven paving at Sainsbury’s car park in Crosby. I fully endorse Margaret Dunn’s plea concerning the poor condition of the car park at Sainsbury’s. This has been in a very dangerous state for years and many people have had falls. It will be a relief to many shoppers when this car park is brought to a safe state. Repair work on this car park has been long awaited. Mary, By email

Be consistent on green belt land

Police should uphold the law

How come the rest of Sefton Liberal Democrats are so accommodating towards the travellers setting up site on green belt land in Melling without permission? These same councillors are normally against anything being built on green belt land especially low cost homes for local people.

A planning application for a gyspy site at Spurriers Lane in Melling was rejected by the council planning committee but the travellers ignored the ruling. A peaceful demonstration was dismissed by the police. We have been told an increase in this year’s council tax is to fund additional services by the police but they do not apply the basic function of applying the rule of law.

Blocking road off is only way to stop ‘rat run’ motorists Re: ‘Council plan more action to tackle rat run.’ There is already a no-right turn sign in place. One side faces Moor Lane and shows ‘No Entry.’ The reverse of the sign shows ‘No Right Turn’. It’s also painted on the road and the road has been shaped to force cars out at an angle positioned to merge into the traffic in the left lane. No further work is needed. By making it one way in the direction from Edge Lane to Moor Lane they made it an official ‘rat run’ as that’s the direction of the traffic at busy periods. So much so that now, drivers coming from Brooms Cross approach the Moor Lane/Edge Lane traffic lights in the left lane, turn onto Edge Lane then immediately turn right and double back along The Crescent. The entire work carried out last year has made the issue worse not better.

pic

of the week

They should just block the end of The Crescent up similar to Edgemoor Drive. If that’s the best solution to stop rat runs on Edgemoor, why not The Crescent? Scott, Crosby. If Sefton Council really want to act on Thornton’s most dangerous rat run road. They should do same as Edgemoor Drive and block it off completely. Nothing else will work the idiots who use this road can’t be reasoned with. They are dumb. Act now, act fast and block it now! Paul, Thornton

Re: Champion article on The Crescent ‘rat run’ in Thornton. There is actually a ‘No right turn’ sign at the moment and on the reverse a ‘No Entry’ sign.

Report by Tom Martin

A NEW rugby league club could be formed in Sefton. The former owner of Salford Red Devils rugby league club Marwan Koukash is hoping to form a new club based in the Liverpool area and he says the ground could be in Sefton. Mr Koukash relinquished control of the Red Devils in January 2018 after five years as owner of the Super League club. He, and two other businessmen, have plans to form a new club which they hope could enter the league structure in 2021 or 2022. Mr Koukash said there is a lot of groundwork to be done but had been “in discussions with the council and we’ve got options on a ground, which I think will end up being in the Sefton area.” He added: “We’re going to build a new ground and get started as soon as we can. “We're open to starting in League One, or the alternative maybe is we are told by the Rugby Football League that it might be easier to buy an existing club and re-brand it. “I'm a great believer in big brands and I think it would be fantastic to have a team like Liverpool playing a team like Leeds on television. “That would have a massive influence on people because, while St Helens-Wigan was

Thinking of Moving House? Moving house, re-mortgaging or dealing with the sale of a property when handling a Probate matter can be a stressful process at the best of times. When choosing which solicitor to instruct to deal with the legal aspects of the transaction, you need to be confident that they can handle the matter professionally, efficiently and still provide a personal service.

Equity Schemes and of course Help to Buy ISA’s. We are also able to give advice on Occupiers Consent and Deeds of Guarantee.

We have served the local community since the early 1800’s and have dealt with a huge variety of property transactions over the years. Our conveyancing team is one of the most experienced in the area. We offer a high quality service and the Conveyancing Department at Dickinson Parker Hill was the first in Ormskirk to be awarded the Conveyancing Quality Scheme and was one of the first firms to be awarded this in the country.

We can visit you at home if you are unable to call into the office and at the end of the conveyancing process we offer free storage for legal documents such as title deeds, Wills and Powers of Attorney.

So many conveyancing firms no longer offer the type of service which we believe a quality, professional conveyancing service demands. We pride ourselves on providing a high quality service mixing new technology with old fashioned service and professionalism. Your matter will be handled by an experienced conveyancer, rather than just an automated computer system and you will be able to deal with the conveyancer handling your matter, from start to finish, rather than having your transaction handled by a large impersonal team of file handlers. Our offices are always open during normal office hours and you will receive a warm welcome should you require an appointment. Our team has a wide range of experience in all aspects of Conveyancing work including, sales, purchases, re-mortgages, new builds, Local Authority Right to Buy schemes, equity release mortgages and we also have experience in shared ownership properties. We can deal with Help to Buy Government

Whilst we proudly serve our local area including Ormskirk, Southport and throughout Lancashire and Merseyside, we are also able to deal with conveyancing matters throughout England and Wales.

PROPERTY MATTERS

We can also provide advice in other areas of law including Family, Wills and Probate, Inheritance and Tax Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection matters, Employment, Accidents and Claims and a wide range of Commercial Law for business clients. We are also one of the few firms in the North West to offer the services of a Notary Public. For further information please contact Kate, Grainne and Rachael who will be more than happy to assist, offer advice and provide a quote.

Catholic Church leader will visit his former school in the summer Report by Tom Martin THE leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales will visit his former school in Crosby to help celebrate their century anniversary. St Mary’s College, founded in 1919, will stage special musical, sporting and reunion gatherings across 2019 to mark the 100-year milestone. For the centrepiece of the programme, the school will welcome back one of its most famous former pupils, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Archbishop of Westminster and leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales. Cardinal Nichols will be the VIP guest at a service of thanksgiving and celebration dinner at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral on Saturday, June 15. The school will also stage two special centenary concerts featuring performances from pupils past and present. ‘St Mary’s at the Movies’ will be held at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall on Saturday, March 23 and will be followed by the college’s centenary Proms in the Park music and fireworks extravaganza at its Blundell Park playing field on Saturday, July 13. On the sporting front the school has scheduled a special cricket match against a team representing the prestigious Lord’s-based MCC club on Wednesday, July 3. Later in the year former pupils will be invited to take part in a major sporting reunion event at Blundell Park on Friday, December 27, with some further music reunion events planned for the same day for good measure. Other activities over the course of the centenary year will include back to school tours and lectures

for former students so they can find out about life at the college today. Similarly, back in time activities will enable current pupils to discover what life was like at St. Mary ’s for their predecessors. St Mary’s Principal, Mike Kennedy, said: “2019 is a very important year for the college, and our aim has been to come up with a varied programme of activities that does justice to our proud history. “We hope that it includes something for everyone, and we extend a cordial invitation to all former pupils, members of staff and their families to come along and celebrate this important milestone with us.”

facilities and youth population. The data, which was selected by BBC News, also looks at ‘going out’ and the number of bars, pubs, clubs and music events in each local authority. The project carried out a poll of more than 1,000 young people to help ensure that the measures used are important to them. Sefton scored 4 points of out 10, compared to nearby authorities Lancashire, which did better with 5/10 and Liverpool which, at 7/10, came out of the survey as the second best city in England to live if you are under 26. Manchester got 6/10. Cardiff was named as the best place for young people to live in the whole of the UK, followed by Nottingham and then Liverpool. Sefton scored highly on the proportion of the area with good 4G signal at 92% giving it a 9 out of 10 score. In Mental Health Care the proportion of monthly NHS mental health therapy targets hit was 100%, giving it 10/10. In the Rent category the average price per bedroom was £275, giving the local authority a score of 8/10. However, it fell down in other areas for example Bus Services where the number of journeys per day was 775 and metres of bus routes per square km was 3,709 which produced a score of 3/10. In the Going Out category the number of bars, clubs and pubs was 256 and music events 32, which gave Sefton its lowest score of just 1 out of 10. For ‘Wild Land’ - the proportion of area that is natural land totalled 17% giving Sefton 3/10 and for Employment, the number of young people claiming welfare benefits per 1,000 equalled 50 which produced another score of 3/10. The number of sports facilities was 153 to give another 3/10 score while for Youth Population the percentage of young people aged 16-25 moving out of the area was 11% (733 people) which produced a score of 2/10.

Martin Mere news Make a Splash at the North West Puddle Jumping Championships During February Half Term This February half term, children of all ages are bein encouraged to grab their wellies, get outside being and join in the North West Puddle Jumping Ch Championships being held at WWT Martin Mere in Bur Burscough, Lancashire. Ch Children will compete against each other to see wh can produce the biggest splash from their who pu puddle jump – as measured by special splashoo-meters. They will also be judged on their en enthusiasm and jumping style. Daily winners will be announced throughout the half term and lucky ‘s ‘super-splashers’ will receive fantastic prizes! A well as the main puddle jumping competition As a area, there will be a practice zone set up to help e entrants perfect their splashing techniques. The c craft room will also be open daily for puddle j jumping themed arts and crafts. V Victoria Fellowes from Martin Mere said: “We know that children love nothing more than

to splash about in puddles, so we thought we’d give them the chance to channel their inner splasher through our puddle jumping competition. We’ve really perfected the championships this year, with a brilliant competition area, a practice puddle zone, additional welly related activities, great prizes and expert judging panels. It’s all a lot of fun and we know that children who love puddles often grow up to be adults that love the outdoors. So through these championships we’re gently nurturing a love that may help protect wetlands and the wildlife that depend on them for years to come.” As well as the puddle jumping area, visitors can attend daily talks and feeds to find out more about some of the species at the centre, explore our grounds and reserve, play in our adventure playground, grab a tasty treat from our café and check out our amazing gift shop.

High speed rail vision to cut travel times to London and Manchester

Cyclists are fine - so long as they ride in single file LET'S be clear about this. I do not hate cyclists. Not many of them anyway. Yes, we all know of the stupid ones who have the idea that rules for traffic lights, zebra crossings, and pavements do not apply to them, but the vast majority simply enjoy their bikes and the exercise. In my teenage years (I come from a generation when we still had teenagers, rather than young adults) I rode my Raleigh ‘Blue Streak’ (quite the bees knees in the early '60s) not, perhaps for pleasure as such, but as a means of getting around. And more particularly, because I lived in Maghull but went to school in Crosby, my mum would give me half of the bus fare if I cycled to school. Occasionally though my brother George and I would set off just for a bike ride - Ormskirk was a favourite destination - and we always cycled in line so as to keep out of the way of motorised traffic. Now I know that if you have an interest, say in cycling, it can often be more fun and sometimes financially prudent, to join a club made up of folk with a similar interest. And in the particular case of cyclists, this will obviously mean peddling off with fellow club members for a healthy day out in the open air. So yes, a lengthy string of cyclists is bound to be a hazard for motorists intent on getting wherever they are going, but I reckon it’s reasonable to put up with the occasional hold-up while you wait for a suitable chance to overtake in safety. Unhappily though, too often these groups of happy cyclists decide they want to chat to each other - which is when they cease to be a reasonable feature of the road and become, to put it bluntly, a bloody menace. The other day I was on the bus to Champion Towers in Southport. Quite a pleasant journey, mainly through countryside, and I usually spend the time reading my book, which is what I was doing when I realised the bus was travelling particularly slowly and looked around for the cause. I didn’t have to look far. Ahead of us was a gaggle of happy cyclists - but it wasn't the number that was causing the problem. The road was narrow, yet these intrepid bike riders were obviously in a sociable mood and were riding sometimes side by side chatting, occasionally a third would join in, and the bus was stuck. Not for a minute or two, but literally for at least a mile. A fed up motorist behind, eventually decided enough was enough and dangerously overtook both bus and cyclists - no doubt recorded on a number of faithful head-cams to be used in evidence in case of accident. Which can never be the cyclist’s fault of course. The fact is these cyclists were completely oblivious to the fact that their behaviour was causing frustration and road rage, for other traffic. I bet that if any one of them was driving a car and was held up for a lengthy period by, say, a caravan, they would start to mutter things like ‘Why can't he pull over for a while and let the traffic through?’ Now I’m not even suggesting that those bike riders should have to do that - but they could perhaps ride in two or three groups with a goodly gap between them, and not ride two or more abreast on a narrow road without a thought for the traffic piling up behind them. I hope I am not a killjoy, but I felt for our bus driver who was steadily losing time on his schedule, and I could understand the frustration of the car driver who undoubtedly took a big risk in his overtaking manoeuvre. I might well have the full weight of the cycling fraternity ringing the bell (if only most of them had one) and calling ‘time’ on my ramblings. But, as my old mum used to say: “It's only for your own good!�

TRAIN commuters could travel to Manchester in only 22 minutes and London in 85 minutes under a ÂŁ70billion proposal unveiled to link Liverpool to the high speed rail network. Transport for the North (TfN) published a Strategic Transport Plan and Investment Programme which shows a proposal to connect the city to HS2 via a new twin-track line between Liverpool and Manchester, and then onto other Northern cities. The rail link between Liverpool and Manchester would connect to HS2 from London to Manchester, giving Liverpool much faster links to London. It is expected that journey times between Liverpool and Manchester will be around 22 minutes and between Liverpool and London 85 minutes.

Police precept increase is given the go-ahead PROPOSALS for an increase in the police precept on this year’s council tax bills have been approved. Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy submitted the request for an increase after holding a public consultation to find out if residents would be willing to pay more to help protect 100 officers’ jobs and recruit 40 more. The move follows a budget announcement in December when the government said local council precept payers must pay more to avoid further cuts in police jobs. Council tax bills include a police precept, which is used to support police budgets. The increase agreed equates to approximately 31p a week or £16 a year for a Band A household, the lowest Council Tax category but which represents the majority of council tax payers on Merseyside. The police precept is collected alongside the council tax. Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson said: “The plan to increase police funding via the precept gives more affluent areas of the UK an opportunity to increase their funding by proportionally higher amounts than less well off areas, even if they have

suffered lower cuts to their central government funding and have lower crime rates. “Using council tax to pay for increased funding for the police is perverse, fundamentally unfair and dangerous. Wealthier areas where there are more higher band properties will be able to raise more, and these are often the areas where there is less serious crime. “Merseyside has seen a 26% increase in violent crime over the last 12 months alone. Hampshire meanwhile has seen a 4% increase. Hampshire will raise £16.5m from increasing their police precept by the maximum, whereas Merseyside can collect less than £9m. How can this be fair or sensible? How is it doing anything other than making those areas in greatest need of police support less safe? “Hard-pressed local taxpayers will bear the burden for funding police forces. This will hit areas with a low council tax base hardest meaning that those areas which have lost the most through the cut in the central government grant will receive the least. “This approach to funding by the Conservatives is dangerous and is reckless as well as being unfair.”

Peel Ports donates £3,000 PEEL Ports has made a £3,000 donation to Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Anthony Meakin, a Peel Ports site manager at Irlam, was on hand to donate the money to the hospital in West Derby. Anthony’s 11 year old daughter, Lily-Rose, is no stranger to hospital staff because of an on-going ear condition and is preparing

herself for an operation at the hospital in April. Speaking after the donation was made, Anthony said: “The work Alder Hey do is incredible. “The staff are unbelievably committed to providing the best care for children and their families and we cannot thank them enough for what they do. “This donation reflects the

positive impact the hospital has had on the wider Peel Ports workforce, and the commitment we have to ensuring our work environment remains safe.” The donation to Alder Hey will go towards funding of the world-leading research and care carried out at the children’s hospital, which helps over 275,000 young people and their families each year.

MOTORS

Morgan is still going strong 110 years after launching its first car - and our motoring man David Simister is definitely a fan of the brand

If I won the Lottery, the first thing that I’d do would be to order a Morgan! SUPPOSE Donald Trump – a US president who, whether you love him or loathe him, once vowed to sort out North Korea by chomping on cheeseburgers with Kim Jong-un – starts a nuclear war. Without wanting to go all Where The Wind Blows on you, I reckon there’s a fair chance all of us would be completely obliterated in the subsequent missile exchange – except, of course, the cockroaches. And Morgan, I’d like to bet. Even in the most ridiculously over-thetop post-apocalyptic scenario I reckon there’ll still be a queue of people cheerily lining up to buy a Plus 4, completely unmoved by whatever ’s going on in the wider world because they’re delighted that

there’s no longer a seven-year waiting list. The Malvern sports car manufacturer just quietly got on with doing its bit through two World Wars. It shrugged off The Great Depression, the Three Day Week and The Credit Crunch. Where Armstrong-Siddeley, Austin-Healey, Alvis and Ascari have all come and gone (and those are just the defunct Brit carmakers beginning with ‘A’), Morgan’s just carried on regardless. Which is why I suspect, that in a week when Nissan announced it was pulling X-Trail production from Sunderland, Jaguar Land Rover posted a £3.4 bn quarterly loss and Ford’s global profits dipped by 50 per cent, Morgan’s announced record profits for the third year running. Despite, as it turns out, actually making fewer cars than it did a year ago. All this even though there are many people – including lots of devoted car nuts – who hate MorCAR SALES gans.

Cartwright scores winner to finish off a special day for the Bucks Bootle 2 Winsford United 1 BOOTLE defender Ben Cartwright had a Saturday afternoon to remember, writes Connor O’Neill. The defender scored the winning goal in his side’s 2-1 win over Winsford United - before being named Man of the Match and the clubs Player of the Month for the January after the game. Cartwright's second-half header came after Dave Short had cancelled out Ryan Cox's first-half opener. The centre back has been an ever-present for Joe Doran's side since he arrived at the club in December from fellow Hallmark Security Premier Division side, Ashton Athletic, and is yet to taste defeat for the Bucks. The victory here though, which was the Bucks' tenth straight in the Hallmark Security League, had a little bit more significance to it, as City of Liverpool suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands Runcorn Town. That resulted in the Bucks

moving within eight points of the current league leaders - while Doran's side also has a game in hand on the Purps. And while this was by no means the Bucks' best performance of the season, the manner in which they managed to grind all thee points will no doubt have delighted boss Doran. After a scrappy start, the Bucks opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time with Cox, like he so often is, on hand to turn the ball home from close-range. To their credit, though, Winsford, who currently lie in 17th, rallied and levelled just after the hour mark. Bootle goalkeeper Jack McGovern hesitated when racing out of his box, allowing Short to loop the ball over him and into the empty net. But with seventeen minutes remaining the Bucks won it. Ste Jones swung in a corner from the right, with Cartwright rising highest inside a crowded penalty area to head the ball home.

Table tennis club set to build new facility

A TABLE tennis club in Crosby has been given permission for ambitious plans to build a new sports facility on Marine Football Club's car park. Sefton Council has approved a proposal for Bath Street Marine

Table Tennis Club to construct a new base in the car park of the Marine Travel Arena, on College Road. The club is currently based within a building owned by Marine FC, but this will be demolished as part of a stadium revamp project.

Niall Cummins heads down for Craig Carney to score the Mariners opening goal. Picture by Susan Nugent.

Mariners step things up in second half to extend unbeaten run Marine 3 Mickleover 0 AN in-form Marine side eased to a 3-0 victory over lowly Mickleover Sports to continue their impressive run since the start of the year. The Mariners are now unbeaten in their six league matches in 2019 and have moved up to 15th place in the table with the three points on Saturday to surely put an end to any lingering fears they may end the season in a dogfight to avoid relegation. They began the match slowly but an impressive second half performance saw them pick up three points. The first half began with some pressure from the visitors, and January’s Player of the Month Sam Barnes made two crucial

interventions to deny early goals for Mickleover, including a goal-line clearance. It took half an hour for Marine to fashion their first chance of the game, Niall Cummins' shot going wide before Charley Edge saw a shot go over the bar. Steve Irwin had a couple of chances as well just before half-time, seeing his shot saved by Mickleover stopper Lewis King before whipping in a cross which was quickly cleared away. The second half was a completely different affair, after manager Neil Young made a half-time attacking substitution by bringing Craig Carney on for defender Sam Tattum. Carney created a couple of chances straight away, Danny Mitchley nearly latching onto his cross after some great work out wide.

He got a deserved goal just ten minutes after entering the fray, when Charley Edge's cross was headed down by Cummins for Carney to put the hosts ahead. Marine continued their pressure following the opener, Mitchley going close with a couple of efforts before Cummins doubled the lead following a shot against the crossbar from Carney. Edge was a constant outlet from the flanks, and one of his many threatening crosses caused Ben Turner to turn the ball into his own net to make it 3-0. Marine never let up in the second-half, Irwin with a late flurry of chances before full-time as the Whites continued their incredible start to 2019. Marine travel to Hednesford Town on Saturday.

Waterloo answer critics with comfortable win Firwood Waterloo 37 Anselmians 6 FIRWOOD Waterloo answered any of their erstwhile critics in the best possible way with a bonus point 37-6 win over Anselmians which head coach Stuart Turner admitted he left with a feeling of “satisfaction and relief.” He said: “We have been low on confidence in recent weeks and certainly in the first half we did look tentative. “But we knew we had the beating of the opposition and a few words of encouragement at half time appeared to have done the trick.” Firwood Waterloo came into this game in 12th place in the North One West table and,

although they remain in the danger zone, with only six points separating them from sixth place Stockport, the battle not to join Anselmians and De La Salle is now really on. “We know we have a job on our hands as it is very tight in that part of the league. “But we have some crucial fixtures coming up which if we play with the same commitment as we did in the second half today we know we can win,” he stated. In a tight first half following, an exchange of penalties, Darragh O’Brien for Firwood Waterloo, the sides’ were tied at 6-6. Good pressure by the Firwood Waterloo pack ended with the ball spun wide with Lee Ferrier on hand to go over for the opening try to

Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

afford the home side an 11-6 lead at the interval. The second half proved a much different story as Firwood Waterloo began to discover opportunities in the Anselmians defence. A break by Joe Bradford and a neat off load got Ferrier over for his second with a break from Connor Scrivens opening up the gap for O'Brien to scamper over for a second, the scrum half also adding the conversion. With a 23-6 lead Firwood Waterloo looked far more comfortable in the game. Forward pressure and some forceful pick and go play got Josh Jenkins over for the bonus score, again O'Brien adding the extras. In the closing stages Jack Weare managed to
