Bumper Birthday Edition The Champion Celebrates 24 Years of Serving the Local Community

Brendan is toast of Merseyside! AN ex-soldier from Crosby is the first person in Merseyside to become a Fellow of the Guild of International and Professional Toastmasters. Brendan Abbott, 64, is now an accredited member of the prestigious group after completing a rigorous training course and exam held in London. A toastmaster is a person responsible for proposing toasts, introducing speakers, and making other formal announcements at a large social event. Brendan has become one of only around 50 toastmasters recognised by the ‘FGIntPT’ and the official website indicates he is the only serving member in the whole of Merseyside. He said: “My inspiration for becoming a Fellow of the Guild of International and Professional Toastmasters began when I Brendan Abbott. attended my wife’s niece’s wedding several years ago. “A Fellow of the ‘GIntPT’ presided over her wedding. As an ex-soldier, I was impressed with the smartness of this chap and the way he organised his duties at the wedding. “I asked him as to why he became a Professional Toastmaster and I later enrolled for training in London. “The Guild was founded by the great Ivor Spencer who was Toastmaster on many Royal occasions. As well as offering my services professionally, I am prepared to offer my services when available free of charge to any local deserving causes, where I can act as a Wedding Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies for charitable events.�

Sefton Council has called for the Judicial Review after claiming the public consultation held last year was “flawed� because only two options were given to improve traffic flow between Switch Island to the dock – and none of them was a tunnel. Highways England has told the Champion that construction on the dual carriageway won't begin until spring 2020 – but that this is likely to be delayed by the judicial review. Stuart added: “We are urging everyone who cares about Rimrose Valley to be ready to come and demonstrate if and when Highways England invade our valley. “It needs to know that we will not give up opposing this monstrosity of a road. “Anyone with a passion for saving Rimrose Valley should follow our campaign on Facebook and Twitter. “They can also sign up as a friend of Rimrose Valley on our website and receive regular updates. “We will let people know about the timing of any protests as soon as we know more.�

‘Rat run’ debated in a ‘friendly manner’ despite ‘bear pit’ fear Report by Tom Martin

A PRIEST nearly pulled the plug on a resident's meeting scheduled to be held at his Parish Hall to discuss the controversial Edgemoor Drive closure over concerns it could be turned into a “bear pit.” The Champion reported last week how a group of locals from Thornton had arranged to meet on Saturday, March 3 at St William of York Parish Hall.

pitality suite at Liverpool Football Club. She says that while working for Pulse inspired her to enter the competition, it was also to help while she grieved for her grandad. “I entered the pageant shortly after I lost my grandad when myself and my family were going through a very hard time. “Essentially I just wanted a ‘pick me up’, something to make myself proud and something to really immerse myself in,” she said, adding “It’s also something to involve my family. “My mum and sisters and my dad, they have all been excited as well. It’s a little pick me up for them too.” Entrants to the pageant are encouraged to raise money for Christie Cancer Charity, and Shaniece says she has been holding raffles and has taken part in a sponsored run up Beetham Tower in Manchester. The budding beauty queen’s long term aspiration lies in the field of public relations. Among her busy schedule she is studying for a journalism degree at Liverpool John Moores University, specialising in PR. She hopes to work for a big PR company in either Manchester or London.

Your home is your castle and we want you to feel safe there say police POLICE are stepping up their efforts to crackdown on burglary after launching a two-week campaign aimed at “intensifying the focus” on break-ins. The Champion reported last week how a number of businesses and homes in the Waterloo area have been targeted in recent weeks and traders were counting the costs of breakins. Merseyside Police launched ‘Operation Castle’ on Monday, March 5, which will increase patrols,“raise community confidence”, reassure residents and reduce the number of outstanding named suspects for burglary. Residents are advised to look at the force’s social media sites and local policing websites where they will find information on burglary hotspots, extra patrols, and advice on security. Superintendent Matt Boyle said: “We have listened to the concerns of the local community and Operation Castle is a big push on tackling burglary and bringing offenders to justice. “We are putting more patrols out, asking

people to report anything suspicious, identifying repeat victims and safeguarding them. “Operation Castle will identify the highest burglary threats at the moment and will take action to execute warrants, focus on outstanding named offenders and deter any possible would-be offenders. “Officers will also visit all residents within 24 hours of a burglary to help and reassure them. “We are asking the public to be vigilant as most burglaries are preventable as they are often opportunistic. Lock your front and back door even when you are in, set your burglar alarm when you go out or go to bed and consider getting CCTV. “It’s also a good idea to use light timers when you go out at night or away on holiday, keep valuables out of sight, and secure your shed and garage too. “Look out for your neighbours, especially the elderly and report anything suspicious to us. “Your home is your castle, hence the name of the operation, and we want the community to feel safe in their own homes.”

Police followed their noses to catch a chef who was a cannabis user A YOUNG chef living in Waterloo was found with cannabis after police detected the smell of the drug on him. The 20-year-old pleaded guilty to possession of the class B drug when he appeared at Sefton Magis-

trates Court on February 28. Lionel Cope, prosecuting, said: “It was the evening of January 11 and police were on duty at Mount Pleasant, Waterloo. They saw the defendant and noticed the smell of cannabis coming

from him. He said he had smoked it recently and a small amount of cannabis was found in his pocket.” The magistrates fined him £150 and ordered that he pay £115 in costs and victim surcharge.

The move was criticised at the time by shoppers and traders over concerns it would lead to a fall in the number of people shopping in the area. Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regulation, said: “Ward councillors in Crosby contacted us with the view of introducing one hour parking in the village which we are pleased to introduce. “We are also looking at introducing a scheme where council owned town centre car parks would cease charging after 6pm. “This would affect the Bootle New Strand multi-story, Bootle Leisure Centre, Crosby Village and Tulketh Street in Southport and would be subject to consultation with ward councillors. “As a council we will always listen and hope this is well received across the whole borough by visitors, traders and residents.”

Sam’s parents speak out in bid to stop knife crime Report by Tom Martin

THE grieving parents of Crosby murder victim Sam Cook have issued a heartbreaking plea to urge people not to take knives on nights out. Mum Jill Radcliffe and dad Alan Cook have backed Merseyside Police in their new No More Knives campaign, which aims to stop the weapons being brought into night clubs and bars. There are reports that an increasing number of gang members are taking knives on nights out, and others are doing the same in a bid to “protect themselves”. Sam Cook, a former Chesterfield High School pupil, was stabbed to death while celebrating his 21st birthday in Empire bar last November. Over the past week, officers have been stepping up their attempts to crackdown on knife crime, with three metal detectors placed in the city centre last Saturday evening. Knife wands have also been handed out to bar and night club staff in Sefton, so doormen can detect if anyone is carrying a weapon. Jill and Alan issued a joint plea as part of the No More Knives campaign. They said: “I'm backing the no more knives campaign because I don't want another family to go through the devastation and heartache that we're going through every day and until the rest of our lives until we close Sam Cook last Saturday evening, hundreds of people volunteered to our eyes for the last time. “We lost our son. He went out on a night out all happy and walk through them and police say the response from memexcited to celebrate his birthday and we returned home bers of the public was “very positive”. Chief Inspector Steve Brizell said: “We are realistic enough knowing we’ll never see him again. “Our whole lives have been turned upside down overnight to know that as a police force we cannot tackle the problem of knife crime on our own, which is why it is important that through some idiot who was carrying a knife. everybody backs this cam“We want this city to be a safe paign and takes a stand city for all the young people to go against violent crime. out and enjoy themselves and “We need parents, teachreturn home at the end of the ers, families, friends and night. community leaders to put “We're grieving for ourselves for their support behind this the life he'll never have.

Water leisure park plan floated for site near village A LARGE leisure park and nature reserve could be created near Lydiate. Under proposals floated by a local landowner, a leisure park including water sports facilities, a mountain bike track and zip wire would be created on a 22 acre site close to the village. The development would be built on what is currently agricultural land off Hall Lane and Southport Road in Lydiate. Access would be off Southport Road with a car park on the site No formal planning application has been made yet but a pre-plan-

ning application was submitted to Sefton Council late last year. Residents who attended a presentation to Lydiate Parish Council last week were told that soil taken from creating the lakes would be used on site to mound up the mountain bike track. They were told that it was hoped the facility would attract up to 200 visitors on a busy day with a charge of around £5 for access. It is anticipated the site would not be used much in the winter and no floodlighting is planned. It would be run by a staff of around six people.

Drink driver had eight-year-old daughter in front seat of car A MAGISTRATE has told a Seaforth woman, caught drink driving with her eight year old daughter in the front seat, that she will have to live with what she has done. As Jessica Harvey, 31, of Sandy Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February 28, it was heard that she caught the attention of police while driving a Seat Leon on Dunningsbridge Road, at 1am on February 13. Lionel Cope, prosecuting, said: “Police saw the vehicle being driven erratically at 20mph in the outside lane of a two-lane dual carriageway. “She nearly clipped the kerb on several occasions and veered to the central white line and back again. The wing mirror was also folded in. “When spoken to by police she smelt of intoxicating liquor, her speech was slow and slurred. “The defendant’s eight year old daughter was in the front seat, not in an appropriate child seat.” Solicitor Natalie Byrne said she was cooperative with police after being taken into custody, where breath tests showed she was driving with 61 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath. Miss Byrne said Harvey and her daughter had planned to stay at her mother’s address, where she had a glass of wine, but when her daughter and other children were unable to get to sleep she decided to take her home. “She felt able to drive,” Miss Byrne said, “She tells me she would not put her child at risk if she felt she was not able to drive.” The solicitor told the court that Harvey “is very remorseful and has previous good character.” The court heard Harvey is a market trader but is unlikely to be able to continue with the work. The magistrates fined her £120 with £115 costs, and banned her from driving for 17 months. Chairman Frank Dainty said: “You put your child at risk and that’s something you are going to have to live with.”

Retirement home was turned into chocolate factory for a day

Andy Lloyd making truffles with homeowners Doreen Thomas and Tricia Clifford

THERE was a treat for chocoholics at a retirement home in Crosby after a special tasting session was arranged for residents. Hosted at Grove Court, on Moor Lane, the event was led by chocolatier, Andy Lloyd, from Island Truffles and Treats. The homeowners’ lounge rivalled Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory during the day, and included a demonstration from Andy Lloyd before everyone had the opportunity to get involved in the chocolate making. They also got to savour their own chocol-

ate creations as well as those made by Andy. Homeowners and their guests were also treated to an afternoon cream tea while Andy hung-up his apron and performed a rock and roll tribute featuring the likes of Elvis, Cliff Richard and Neil Diamond. Fiona Brooks, regional marketing director at McCarthy and Stone, said: “It seems there are a lot of chocoholics in Crosby and many joined us for our wonderful chocolate making and tasting event.”

This car overturned after hitting a hedge which had blown into the road in Lydiate.

Storm causes hazards on roads and bridge damage

HEAVY winds caused hazardous driving conditions in rural parts of Sefton last week. Altcar Lane, Lydiate was blocked for a time on Thursday night (March 1) when a car overturned after hitting part of hedge which had blown into the road. And Lydiate parish councillor Tony Robertson took this picture, right, after one of the barriers at Green’s Lane swing bridge over the canal on Eagar Lane in Lydiate was blown off. Merseyrail services were also affected with the company putting in place an ‘adverse weather timetable’ with reduced frequency of trains for two days.

Stephen Duffy (right) with volunteer speakers at Savio Salesian College.

Former prisoners warn students to avoid being used by criminal gangs Report by Tom Martin FORMER prisoners and drug dealers are giving talks in Sefton schools as part of a unique project to steer youngsters away from a life of crime. The campaign sees individuals who were once on the wrong side of the law go into classrooms to offer a word of warning to pupils and give advice based on their own experiences. Last week, the event was held in Savio Salesian College, in Bootle, with others organised in Crosby High School and Holy Family High School, and plans to hold more due to popular demand. It has been made possible after a charity called Orsted successfully applied for £4,400 from the Burbo Bank Extension Community Fund.

Organiser Stephen Duffy, who used to be a prison officer, explains how the talks work: “We want to focus on criminal exploitation because a lot of young people are being used by these gangs to carry or transport drugs. There are stories all the time about young children being used in this way. “The talks have been fantastic and we’ve had some really good feedback. At the beginning I talk about my time working in a prison and how it’s not big or hard men – but actually most of them have hit hard times and are drug addicts. “We do a bit of role playing and the volunteers tell stories. The most important part of the day is when they talk about their own life experiences and how drugs affected their lives. “There is then a question and answer session with the children in groups of around 30. If any schools would like involved in the project call 07809 687 762.

Studio-themed music and cocktail venue is trio’s recipe for success Report by Kenny Parker THE OWNERS of a successful crazy golf course and bar in Liverpool, one of whom is from Southport, have teamed with an award winning musician and music promoter to create a live music venue and cocktail bar in Liverpool themed on a TV and film studio. On Air, opening soon at the former Cains brewery in Stanhope Street, Liverpool, now renamed Cains Brewery Village, features 60ft-high film sets, a stage for live music and a ‘secret garden’ mezzanine bar area offering views over the action. Kip Piper, from Ormskirk and Danny Bolger, from Southport, who have already created Ghetto Golf and who own Birdies Bar and BBQ both at the same site, are now working with music promoter and agent

Ethan Allen on the novel concept. Ethan, from Aughton, is an international award-winning musician with 25 years’ experience promoting live music in bars, clubs, concerts and festivals. After achieving three No.1 hits worldwide in country music charts in the mid 1990s, Ethan turned his talents to writing music for TV and film, running a successful record company and music publishing house. Two years ago he unexpectedly received 7.9 million ‘hits’ online with one of his songs, Something In The Water, after a line dancer choreographer used it to accompany a dance routine at the Crystal Boot Awards in Blackpool, run by Linedancer, a sister organisation to the Champion. Ethan said: “We wanted to bring something unique to the city. “Inside a huge warehouse we have built

On Air, a full movie set, where you become part of the cast. “Outside the front of the venue we have doubled the size of Birdies bar which is now a huge festival garden bar. Alongside that we now have our BBQ where a selection of different food vendors line the entrance to Birdies bar serving awesome tastes all day and all night.” In 2010 Ethan re-opened the legendary Liverpool live music venue, Eric’s after it had been left to ruin for nearly 30 years. He went on to provide live music for more than 30 venues throughout the North West, working with some 60-plus full-time musicians. Acting as manager to the artists and agent to the venues, Ethan filled the role as music director and for the last eight years supplied live music seven nights a week to the majority of live venues on Mathew Street.

Two men Death of boy, 12, arrested in ‘not suspicious’ Thornton in police raid on drug dealers Report by Tom Martin TWO men from Thornton were among eight people arrested after police carried out drug warrants across south Sefton and Liverpool. Officers from the Matrix Serious and Organised Crime Unit raided six addresses in Bootle, Fazakerley and Kirkby on Thursday, March 1 and arrested eight people. A man in his 50s and another in his 40s, both from Thornton, were among those arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A and Class B drugs with the intent to supply. Officers also seized a large quantity of money, an Audi Q5, two scooters as well as high value electrical goods. The police operation, named ‘Op Cicilian’, has been an ongoing investigation which saw simultaneous drug warrants target known criminals. Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Reardon said: “This operation has successfully helped to take a number of offenders off our streets and has put a stop to a significant drugs supplier in Merseyside. “The warrants were carried out simultaneously this morning targeting those involved in the supply and distribution of Class A and B drugs. “Our Matrix officers are dedicated to targeting organised criminals who pose the most serious threat to our communities and we’re hugely grateful for the support and hard work from all our officers and staff who have been involved in this investigation.” Detective Inspector Allison Woods also added: “These offenders have shown complete disregard for community safety. Therefore this is an opportunity for us as a police force and our criminal justice system to really take its course as we continue to take dangerous individuals off our streets. “Those involved in supplying drugs will not get away with it and we’ll continue to bring them to justice.” Anyone in the community with information is urged to continue helping us investigate crime by reporting any offence to the police via @MerPolCC or by calling 101. You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

LETTERS to the Editor Disgusted that trees felled at cemetery Re: Ford Cemetery Trees. So a ‘few’ of the trees were diseased, so why cut them all down? Again it sounds like cost cutting to me, cheaper to chop them all down, instead of maintaining them! Who was consulted about this? The local residents? The families of those buried in the cemetery? I doubt it. I am disgusted, PB Croft, Litherland.

Crosby Village needs a major Edgemoor Drive anchor store and not a vets should stay closed We have waited with high expectations on the revamp plans being unveiled for Crosby Village. Indeed the building work has over run as most retail outlets should have been completed and occupied by the end of last year. The Champion item in February 14 edition revealed a veterinary practice had made a proposal to utilise the largest new unit in the village. We were promised high profile leisure and shopping facilities to regenerate a village area which has sadly declined over the years. To introduce a veterinary surgery just to expand a current practice in Formby here in Crosby makes the regeneration of a village

shopping area futile. We already have veterinary practices in the area which provide a sufficient service to the Crosby pet owners and the need for this practice to relocate here is totally unnecessary plus the use of the largest unit on the site. I hope this current proposal is not accepted by the council and they adopt an outlook to bring in a high profile anchor tenant with regards to this unit which in turn will encourage other traders to start up in Crosby too. T McGregor Crosby

PICTURE of the week

Traffic problems on Moor Lane have been going on for 20 years with queues stretching to Crosby. Residents shouldn’t have to put up with the selfish drivers who are not interested in the people living there. They often drive, not at 20mph but 40mph. You still have some drivers who go up down our road to try and annoy us, and go over traffic counters, when it is just as easy to get on Edge Lane or off at their end. Now Edgemoor Drive is blocked we are seeing what it’s like to live in a residential area. It is safer and quieter. Keep Edgemoor Drive closed. Philip, Resident of Thornfield Road for 30 years

...But keep it open for cyclists! I sympathise with the indecision faced by Sefton Council over the blocking of Edgemoor Drive. It is not possible to close it to all but local residents. They will have to choose: either leave the road open to everyone - or close it to all. If they choose the latter can I beg Sefton Council not to repeat the mistake when they closed the rat run on Manor Road through Manor Avenue with high pavements and a tatty planter. When you close a road to cars it should still be accessible to cyclists. Dan Kenyon, By email

Blocking road has not affected traffic

Re: your article entitled traffic chaos after the long overdue blocking of Edgemoor Drive and Moor Lane. I can’t agree with people who are complaining. I use Moor Lane every day and found the traffic virtually no different than before the junction was blocked. Some people just got to have a whinge! Angry, Thornton.

Cat’s eyes are snazzy but no bridge lights! Nicky Garforth leads the older adult fitness class in a seated aerobics taster session at last Saturday’s family fun and open day at Maghull Health Studios. Picture by Martyn Snape

Great news on the snazzy new cat’s eyes on Switch Island but the A59 Northway’M58 flyover has been in total darkness for months. There is a pedestrian crossing at this location with no lighting on that whatsoever. Perhaps Sefton Council will get a cherry picker out there pronto if they see this letter! Maghull Resident, By email

Crowdfunding could pay for revamp of Royal Yacht Britannia

Traffic lights are sequenced and we don’t want more traffic on road!

I am responding to Jim Sharpe’s column One Man and His Dog on February 14. Rather than trying to get funding from the National Lottery to build a new Royal Yacht Britannia, Jim Sharpe could raise the money by co-ordinating his own crowd funding platform. That way, he and other like-minded patriots could pay for the Queen’s new pleasure craft entirely from their own resources. As Jim suggests, the new vessel could be a floating advertisement of our ship building skills to the rest of the world as we try to negotiate trade deals with the rest of the world once we leave the EU. My crowd funding idea is surely the perfect solution - it avoids any negativity from those

Re: Recent letter about improving traffic light sequencing on the A5036. The traffic lights are set on a Hurry Call system, and the time is determined by the volume of traffic at any one time, so the sequencing does fluctuate automatically. The new road is to aid the regeneration of the entire region, it is not ‘only ’ for the docks. There is going to be a lot more development soon. I wonder what would happen if every vehicle approaching Switch Island could instantly turn the traffic light to green so they didn’t have to stop! Switch Island is handling phenomenal numbers of vehicles every day, and all of them are entering or leaving at different junctions. The cross traffic has to move in smaller chunks because the space is limited. The timing is set to

who think that public money might be better spent for the benefit of the public. It also gives Jim Sharpe (and others sharing his view) more opportunity to pretend that once we leave the EU a whole new world of trade opens up that was previously unavailable and which we would have had the benefit of but for those meddling EU bureaucrats! British ship and boat builders have been selling their vessels and engineering expertise all over the world prior to and irrespective of the EU referendum with varying degrees of success and I am sure they will continue to do so as best they can after we leave the EU. Alex McCann By email

deal with each section to keep vehicles moving in all directions. Not every traffic light can turn green as each and every vehicle approaches it! Many vehicles have to move through several sections of lights so the fact that one little bit in front of you is vacant for a few seconds does not mean that the road is clear! There is even a safety margin built in for those drivers who will insist on blocking junctions or jumping lights. Switch Island was a low cost option to solving a major problem, and it has only turned out to be a nightmare. We can only hope commonsense prevails. John McDonald, CRADRA

Reds legend ‘Terry Mac’ opens stroke facility

Anthony Paine with his mum Janet

Calls for changes after another prisoner death

LIVERPOOL legend Terry McDermott has officially opened a new facility for stroke patients at Aintree University Hospital. The new relaxation room provides a dedicated space to help combat some of the psychological effects of a stroke. The icon, who suffered a stroke himself in 2016, was on hand to support his niece, Danielle McDermott, who works in the hospital’s Stroke team and who spearheaded the idea of creating a relaxation room. He was joined by David Johnson, who played for the club from 1976 until 1982. The room, which is a converted office space, includes sensory lighting, relaxing music and essential oils known for their calming and therapeutic properties. Terry said: “This is a great addition to the stroke ward at Aintree and will really improve the experience of patients. I’m incredibly proud of Danielle for having the initiative to create this space with the support of her colleagues. I’ve heard lots about

it, so it’s great to see it and be here for the official opening.” The three-times European Cup winner was treated for a minor stroke in December 2016, days after his 65th birthday. He said: “I had noticed my speech slurring and had a tingling sensation in my lips over a period of a few days. I went to my local hospital in Newcastle and within 48 hours of my tests, I’d had a three-hour operation and was back to full health in time for Christmas. “It turned out one of the arteries in my neck was up to 69%t blocked. If it had not been treated immediately, I would have had a full-blown stroke.” Danielle, stroke data and quality co-ordinator, said: “As a former stroke patient himself I knew Terry would understand how important a space like this is so I was over the moon when he said he’d come and officially open it. We started using the room with patients on the ward at the end of last year and the feedback David Johnson, Terry McDermott and Danielle McDermott at the has been really positive.” official opening at Aintree Hospital

Report by Tom Martin THERE are calls for 'full transparency and accountability' over Liverpool Prison after another inmate took his own life. Anthony Paine, 35, died in hospital after being found hanged in his cell on Monday, February 19 and his family claimed “he was treated like an animal”. The Walton-based prison was described as one of the worst in the country in a damning inspection carried out in September and was then ordered to improve standards. Mr Paine is the third inmate to have killed himself since the report came out, and his family believe the prison should have done more to support him. The 35-year-old, who had been sentenced to 18 months for affray and endangering the public after climbing onto a roof, had been in HMP Liverpool for five months and was due to be released in two weeks when he was found dead in his cell. Just weeks before his death, he had sent his mother, Janet Paine, from Garston, a letter stating that “nobody was doing anything to help” and pleading: “Help me.” She said her son had severe mental health problems and the justice system had failed him. Walton MP Dan Carden talked about Mr Paine's death in the House of Commons on Thursday, February 22 when he called for more transparency at the prison. He said: “We lost another life inside the prison, Anthony Paine. The report does not mention in detail the failure to invest in infrastructure, renovate wings or the loss and replacement of experienced prison officer numbers. Having seen the prison with my own eyes there is no doubt that these are basic but expensive requirements. “However, in a written MP Dan Carden answer to me, the Minister says there is no plan to publish the cost or programme of urgent works at HMP Liverpool. “Will he agree with me that it’s vital we now have transparency across our prison network, and the improvements that are necessary, if we are to see a real change? “Inspectors called the conditions in HMP Liverpool some of the worst they’d ever seen, highlighting a systemic failure that goes right to the top. The loss of 7,000 prison officers and severe overcrowding under the Conservatives have left our prisons in crisis, undermining them as places of rehabilitation and reform. “Many of the problems in Liverpool Prison were identified in a 2015 report, but conditions only got worse. That can’t happen again. We need full transparency and accountability. No excuses.”

Pupils invited to free acting workshops at theatre school PUPILS from secondary schools and sixth forms in Sefton are being invited to take part in free workshops in acting and musical theatre. The sessions are being delivered at schools and colleges throughout the region by Liverpool Theatre School, with hundreds of pupils set to take part. Pupils can choose to attend either a session in musical theatre or acting, where they will learn the basic principles of each discipline. During the workshops, budding young stars of the stage will also have an oppor-

tunity to put their questions to experts from Liverpool Theatre School. Maxine Ellis, Principal at Liverpool Theatre School, explains: “We are working with schools and sixth form colleges to offer two separate workshops; one in musical theatre and one in acting. “Both offer a great introduction to those interesed in pursuing a future in either. “During the fun and interactive sessions, pupils can pick up tips on how to turn their passion for the stage into a career. “There are so many talented young people who could become successful per-

formers with the right training and support. “It can be a tough industry to break but more than 90 percent of our students go on to achieve success in musical theatre or progress to higher education.” Liverpool Theatre School graduates have appeared in top West End musicals and tours including Oliver Ormson, who is has appeared in Cinderella, The Book of Mormon, Westside Story and is currently touring with The Addams Family. Schools can register for a free workshop by calling Alex Medlicott on 0151 728 7800.

I ADMIT I was a bit stumped thinking of a subject for this week - but just an hour or so ago a dog gave me an idea at least to give me a start. Notice I said ‘a’ dog rather than ‘my dog.’ And though in fact my dog Tina does come into this, it was that bundle of misplaced energy, my late brother’s dog Cinders, that has got me all of a tither. You may recall that Cinders is probably the greediest creature on this earth. Not good if you inadvertently leave anything remotely edible within her reach, but with the plus point that it is always easy to get her to come, simply by uttering the magic word ‘treats!’ On holiday for instance, if I want her to come in from the bank, this would get her back into the boat quicker than the proverbial arrow from a bow Likewise at home. If she is out in the back garden playing with her stuffed lamb (don’t ask), ‘treats’ immediately results in abandoned lamb and her presence at my feet. Or it did until very recently. I haven’t the foggiest idea what caused it, but obviously she has managed to give herself a scare in the kitchen and at present scurries through as quickly as possible going out of or into the house. Lately this nonsense has got worse and Cinders has taken to ignoring the siren call of treats and finding something of absorbing interest as far down the garden as possible. Now this was a nuisance at first. But I found that if I went out to her and assured her of treats if she came in, she would reluctantly trot to the door and scurry through the kitchen with all possible speed. This still works, mornings and afternoons. But along with the ‘Beast from the East’ and the accompanying blast of icy wind, for reasons unknown except in that strange little doggy head, in the evenings and even after dark she now refuses stubbornly to come in. Which is where Tina briefly enters the story. I asked her to help me by herding Cinders homewards - and this evening she appeared to be so doing. She got the little miscreant following her as she trotted towards home - until, perhaps 10-15ft away she stopped. Cinders stopped too - only to turn back towards the garden again - while Tina proceeded demurely into the house. I think she did it on purpose to get Cinders into lumber but I can’t prove it. And this culminated at 5.30pm today with me chasing the little tyke round the garden until I finally managed to grab her by the scruff of her neck and forcibly frog (or dog) march her back into the house. The loser in all this is me. I literally was freezing by the time Cinders was recaptured, while she (and Tina also for that matter) seem quite happy no matter how cold or bitter the wind. Having a double hairy coat probably helps. Talking of the weather though, our area has not had heavy accumulations of snow. Certainly the north of Liverpool regularly escapes the worst of whatever weather is going. Doesn’t stop it from being b****y cold though! At this point I was about to compare the reaction to snow these days with many of the winters I remember from my youth. But I have just been watching the TV news and seen the scenes of chaos in many parts of the North West so I won’t make fun of what has obviously turned into a serious incident for many people. It shows in fact the truth of the old adage about the little boy who cried ‘wolf!’ once too often. Anyway, I'm just about to make myself a comforting mug of Horlicks, then off to my bed. And if I awake to three foot of snow outside my front door it could also show just how wrong I can be.

Who Cares? We Care! A

t some stage in our lives, as we get older, most of us will come to rely on a care service program, whether for ourselves or a relative. From home services to residing in a care home, fortunately we are lucky to live in communities that offer so many different options in levels of care. However, as there is such a vast array of choices available, it can often prove both daunting and confusing when selecting which is going to be right for you or a close relative. The one common goal for both the patient and the professionals is to ensure that people remain as independent as they can for as long as possible. Over the next few pages the Champion offers you a choice and advice of what services are out there and what you can expect. Where care is concerned, one size can never fit all!

Home Care

These types of services can be tailored to benefit each patient. Furthermore, these programs can be adapted over time to match the ever changing needs of the individual. From shopping, to cooking and cleaning, or simply planned visits to relieve someone from the acute sense of loneliness, home care services can focus on just one or multiple needs, as and when they arise and it is an effective way of enabling people to remain independent in their own homes.

Loneliness Sometimes, independence can seem a very loneliness pursuit. Whilst living alone, without a support network of friends and family living close by, the home can sometimes seem like a prison. Yet, day centres can play a vital role here, offering the opportunity for new friendships, recreational activities and outings, helping to kick start a new social outlook.

Care Homes & Assisted Living

Who Cares? We Care!

Staying at Home and Mobile Services Given the choice, most of us will always strive to stay within our familiar surroundings for as long as possible, yet when we begin to struggle with daily chores or getting from A to B, life can become very difficult. When living at home is no longer possible, care homes offer the very best solution. Sometimes the decision about care is clear cut. When an elderly parent suffers a fall or illness, resulting in a period of time spent in hospital, where it then becomes apparent that returning to their own home is no longer an option. This however is not always the case and for those living independently in their own home, changes to their health and well-being can be much more gradual meaning it can be incredibly difficult and stressful deciding when to consider a move into a care home. Many offer the opportunity to try them out over a short stay which can be great

way of experiencing life in a care home, particularly for someone who is initially reluctant. Care homes today are places of haven for patients, where teams of dedicated carers work tirelessly and care deeply about their residents. If the individual is still reluctant to move into a care home, maybe assisted living is an option to be considered. Assisted living is a type of residential care that allows for independent living in a specialist complex. Facilities differ but usually nurses and care staff are provided on-site. These facilities are usually more appropriate for those with low level care needs.

Police ‘can cope’ with Reds fixture clash with Grand National POLICE insist they have enough resources to deal with Liverpool playing a league match at Anfield on the same day as the Grand National. It's the first time in 24 years that the Reds have played a home fixture on the same day as the Aintree race meeting and the clash of events has been criticised by city Mayor Joe Anderson. It means there will be around 70,000 people arriving in Aintree for the Grand National on Saturday, April 14, and up to 53,000 football fans travelling to Anfield to watch Liverpool host Bournemouth in the Premier League at 5.30pm. Merseyside Police say they will be able to The Grand National at Aintree will attract 70,000 spectators safely handle both sporting events but back as it is being broadcast live on BT Sport.

Residents make the most of the snow!

IT wasn't just Sefton locals who had to endure the freezing temperatures and snow last week in Sefton, as Crosby beach’s Iron Men were also caught up in the cold conditions! Residents woke up on Tuesday, February 27 to thick snow across the borough, and children made the most of the weather by making snowmen and enjoying snowball fights! Others who have drones made the most of the scenic sights by taking some

stunning aerial shots of the area, including a white-covered Rimrose Valley Country Park. The so called Beast from the East brought freezing temperatures to Sefton last week, with some parts as cold as -5C on Wednesday, February 28. Despite this, some brave locals even took to Crosby beach to take some pictures of Anthony Gormley's Iron Men, with the statues feeling the brunt of the snowy weather!

Also on the beach were RNLI lifeguards, who revealed that they are the only section of the rescue service which works every day of the year. An RNLI Lifeguards North West spokesperson said: “RNLI Lifeguards at Crosby Beach are the only lifeguard service in the RNLI to patrol 365 days a year. “It doesn't matter what the conditions are, we will be patrolling to keep you safe at Crosby Beach.” The 'Plantathon' will be held at Lady Green Garden Centre

Green-fingered gardener to grow charity ’s funding A GREEN-FINGERED gardener will be taking part in a quirky 12-hour fundraising challenge with help from his colleagues at a garden centre in Ince Blundell. Ian McCavish, regional manager at Lady Green Garden Centre, will hold the 'Plant-athon' from 7am on Friday, March 16 to raise money for the Greenfingers charity. He will plant throughout the day, finishing at 7pm that evening. All of the containers that are planted will be sold at the garden centre, with all

Wicked flying in

A scene from Council Depot Blues

Popular play makes return to city

WICKED, the West End and Broadway musical that tells the untold story of the Witches of Oz, will begin performances at the Liverpool Empire this week. The Wizard of Oz prequel will play for four weeks from today (Wednesday) to Saturday, March 31. The 2018 UK & Ireland Tour of Wicked recently opened in Bristol where it has already broken Box Office records and earned rave reviews. Wicked features Amy Ross as

Elphaba, Helen Woolf as Glinda, Aaron Sidwell (best known as Steven Beale in EastEnders) as Fiyero, Steven Pinder (best known as Max Farnham in Brookside) as The Wizard and Doctor Dillamond, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Emily Shaw as Nessarose and Iddon Jones as Boq. Nikki Bentley is Standby for Elphaba. Wicked is already the 15thlongest running show in West End theatre history and is now in its 12th year at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.

Experience World’s Greatest Show Tunes with The Barricade Boys PERFORMERS from the musical Les Misèrables have come together to create a new show which is now on its first international tour and is coming to the Southport theatre on Sunday, March 18. The Barricade Boys have been seen on ITV’s This Morning and The Paul O’Grady Show. They have had sell out performances in London’s West End and appeared at the St James Theatre on Broadway and many international dates. This group not only perform the world’s greatest show tunes, they also celebrate music from some of the most iconic names in the music industry, from powerful ballads and operatic arias to some of the best pop, rock and swing numbers of all time. The production has been put together by Scott Garnham and Simon Schofield and they are joined by Sam Edwards (Fiyero in the UK and Ireland tour of Wicked) and Chris Cowley (Enjolras in Les Misèrables). Scott may be known to North West audiences as he played Billy Elliot’s brother, Tony, in the touring production of the show which visited the Liverpool

Empire last year. He commented: “The Barricade Boys is a really good night’s entertainment. We perform Les Misèrables songs and we do our own unique version of them. We also do Motown, swing and pop. “I think the music of Les Misèrables is so popular as it has been in everyone’s psyche for 30 years. My generation grew up with the show. The song, I Dreamed A Dream, became very popular when Susan Boyle sang it on Britain’s Got Talent and the programme brought the musical to a whole new audience. “I think people relate to the music and people go back to watch it again as they love everything about it.” Other musicals are also celebrated in The Barricade Boys and they include: Jersey Boys, A Chorus Line and Wicked. Scott added: “The show sold out at the Charing Cross theatre in London. Since then it has played on Broadway and all over the world. We have also appeared on TV. “We have created something different, and we hope that people will enjoy it.”

Review by Ron Ellis Council Depot Blues by Dave Kirby Royal Court Theatre, Liverpool I FIRST saw Andrew Schofield singing in 1984 in a musical Cavern of Dreams at the Liverpool Playhouse, based on Spencer Leigh’s book on Merseybeat, and again, four years later, at the same venue playing Gene Vincent in Be Bop a Lula, the story of the ill-fated tour with Eddie Cochran. Drew looked every bit a genuine rock ‘n’ roll star rather than an actor playing one, unlike Roy Brandon who was a musician who moved into acting, in this instance as Jo Jo, a dustman of the gay persuasion. In the Seventies, Roy played sax in a Merseybeat group that I used to manage called Bilbo Baggins Band and having them both onstage together, along with M.D. Howard Grey on piano, Phil Hearne on harmonica, and Jake Abraham on guitar and vocals, this could well have been a night at a blues club in the Deep South. Throughout the play, we were treated to several familiar blues and jazz-rock songs with appropriate new lyrics to reflect the plot and, for me, they were the best part of the show. Council Depot Blues is an archetypal Scouse comedy, so well-loved that this was its third outing at the Royal Court since the master of the genre, Dave Kirby, first wrote it ten years ago. Dave was writing from experience as an ex-council worker himself and one can imagine the job is pretty much the same today, the humour coming to countenance the thankless tasks in squalid surroundings that made up an average day’s work. The incomparable Lindzi Germain had a cameo role as a drunken neighbour and one of the comedy highlights was her attempt at seducing the stocky foreman (Paul Broughton). Completing the cast was James Nelson-Joyce as Shorty, a drug-ridden young rap artist. After a while, the despair of their lives began to pall, despite the humour. Yet there was pathos in the show too. On the day he retires, Stan is crying. He might have hated the job but the depot has been his life and, without the camaraderie of his workmates, pension or no pension, he is lost. “Money means nothing,” he cries, “when you’re old.” Cue for a song, the audience clap along and the evening ends on a high. Star rating: 6 out of 10.Great blues music. Council Depot Blues runs until March 24

THIS TIME last week there was a joke doing the rounds in the bars of Helsinki about our recent spate of bracing weather. The English called the weather front, on account of it sweeping across the North Sea straight from the chillier bits of Russia, The Beast From The East. The Dutch dubbed it The Siberian Bear. Even the Swedes got a bit over-excited and labelled it The Snow Cannon. But the Finns called it… Wednesday. It’s a bit of a harsh observation, but when it comes from a country that’s produced seven world rally champions there is an element of truth in it. We Brits just aren’t too hot at coping with extreme cold. I can understand the schools closing

for the day and the train operators finding things a bit tricky – but all those warnings about not travelling unless it’s absolutely necessary rang hollow. Okay, so horsepower hedonists like me who venture out simply because it’s fun had to hang fire on getting their MX-5s and M3s out for a few days, but everyone else who’s vaguely normal only ever travels because it’s necessary. You might be lucky enough to work from home or to have a boss nice enough to deem your drive in non-essential, but for the rest of us we’re on the roads not to be annoying, but because we have to be. Which is why there really ought to be more emphasis on learning what to do when you have to go out in the snow, so you don’t have to stay in and listen to people on the news telling you how treacherous it is out there. If you woke up to a genuine ten-foot high snowdrift than fair enough, but you’d be surprised at how far you can get on the white stuff in a car that isn’t a Land Rover Discovery if you drive sensibly. Even on quiet roads that hadn’t been gritted my 20year-old Toyota Avensis managed to cope admirably, and one pal of mine managed to overcome just about everything in a Fiat Cinquecento. Neither had chunky winter tyres or fancy traction control systems – but they did have decent rubber, a lack of weight and some careful driving in their favour. But far too few drivers I encountered during Snowmageddon seemed completely clueless about what to do when you get that horrible moment when the steering goes light on an icy patch or what to do when the back end snaps out of line on a slippery bit of snow. I’m not suggesting that we’re sent on weekend breaks to Finland to learn how to drive a Mitsubishi Evo VIII rally car on a frozen lake to sharpen up our skills (although I’d be more than happy to volunteer!), but I’m sure that equipped with some snow-driving knowledge the recent conditions wouldn’t have been as ominous. Let’s stop panicking about the snow and learn to drive on it instead. Then the Finns might stop taking the mickey out of us…

Milne returns to the Bucks

Marine bolster strikeforce as Amis joins from Altrincham

BOOTLE joint-managers Joe Doran and Phil Stafford have once again moved to bolster their attacking options. Just four weeks after signing Kevin Edgar from AFC Liverpool, Doran and Stafford have brought back a familiar face in the shape of Stephen Milne from Warrington Town. The forward scored six times in seven games for the Bucks - but found regular first-team football tough to come by at Warrington and has now opted to return his former club just in time for the business end of the season. Milne was an unused substitute in Bootle’s last outing against Winsford United. Meanwhile Bootle have been celebrating after being named Premier Division Macron Club of the Month for February. The Bucks picked up four wins in their four games in the month - scoring 18 times in the process. The Bucks were due to play Runcorn Town on Tuesday before welcoming Barnoldswick Town to the TDP Solicitors Stadium this Saturday.

MARINE have added some attacking threat to their squad after signing striker Josh Amis from Altrincham. Former Stockport County striker Amis, 23, joined the Robins in July 2017 after impressing in pre-season. A Merseysider, Josh had started out at Preston North End before spells on loan at Northwich Victoria, scoring for the Trickies in their FA Cup win at the MTA in October 2015. He was at Stockport for 2016-17, coming off the bench against the Mariners in the FA Trophy game at Edgeley Park but was released at the end of that campaign. An emergency appendix operation prevented Amis from starting the league season and his debut for Altrincham was not until September 16. Meanwhile, there was no surprise when Marine's weekend fixture at home to Lancaster City was called off after the pitch was covered in snow. Freezing temperatures last week, caused by a combination of the ‘Beast from the East’ and Storm Emma, played havoc with local football fixtures and Marine's league game was no exception. This weekend they will hope for a return to action when they host Hednesford Town. It's the first time Marine have faced the ninth-placed side this season and this is the first game of a double header as Marine are away at Hednesford Town the following weekend. l The Northern Premier League's clubs will meet tomorrow (Thursday) to decide on whether to continue with the current north/south geographical split in Evo-Stick League North and EvoStikLeague South or switch to an east/west allocation for next season.

Remyca set to revamp booming youth set-up LITHERLAND Remyca FC is to reorganise its youth section which has continually grown in size since it was established in 2014. It now has more than 20 teams providing football for both boys and girls in the Merseyside area. As a result the club will now separate our youth phase into age phases. These will be known as the Foundation Phase (7-11 year olds), Development Phase (12 15 year olds), Semi-Pro Phase (16+), and Girls Phase. A club spokeperson said: “We take the welfare of our players, coaches and volunteers extremely seriously, and we believe the role of Safeguarding & Welfare Officer is becoming too big for one person to manage alone. “Therefore, having introduced our new phase leaders, each will be responsible for overseeing the club’s safeguarding policy and procedures alongside our Lead Welfare Officer. “We hope that this restructuring will allow the growth of the club to continue smoothly, and enable all stakeholders greater transparency. “There may be a brief period of transition whilst any required CPD is undertaken but the key building blocks are in place.” Remyca are currently in second place in the North West Counties First Division and visit Chadderton on Saturday.

Marine's pitch was covered in snow last week.

Club set to launch major new matchday hospitality package MARINE has announced the use of the Graham Lounge at the Marine Travel Arena as a match day hospitality room with the first event planned for the game against Witton Albion on Saturday, April 7. This is a trial event with a view of making it a permanent fixture for all Saturday home matches from the 2018/19 season and onwards. Starting at 12.30pm with a free drink, the trial package represents excellent value for money at only £30 a head. The package includes an optional photograph on the pitch, match entry, a pre-match two course meal, match day programme, prematch interview with the manager and half-time tea/coffee.

The Graham Lounge can accommodate up to 40 people and bookings are invited from businesses and small or large groups of home or away fans. Bookings can be made for up to eight people per table. Bookings can be made either by downloading the booking form via the website www.marinefc.com and by emailing it to jamesleary@accountant.com or by phoning James Leary on 07800 509593 or Dave McMillan on 07949 483003. Payment must be made in advance to confirm bookings as directed on the booking form. The Arriva Suite and its excellent facilities is now to be reserved for

home and away fans on April 7 and for future Saturday home games from next season. Marine vice chairman Dave McMillan said: “We have fantastic clubroom facilities at the MTA which are ideally suited to prematch hospitality. “A number of clubs are offering similar packages with great success and we are confident that ours will also prove very popular at an affordable cost, which of course also includes admission and a two course meal. “It’s aimed at corporate clients but also fans who might be celebrating a special occasion, the trial game is certain to sell out quickly so make sure you don’t miss what

is sure to be a great day at the MTA. “This is a great initiative by James Leary and Dave McMillan and I am sure that it will be a success and provide the basis to launching the hospitality packages on Saturdays for next season and hopefully beyond. “It is important that new commercial incomes are explored and we have seen the success of offering these type of packages at other non-league clubs. “We therefore have set aside the Graham Lounge to provide these match day facilities for visiting fans who want to make the day a special occasion for whatever reason.”
