FINAL TERM FOR STREATHAM SCHOOL

Shock decision to close 93-year-old institution due to falling pupil numbers Report by Tom Martin

AN independent school in Blundellsands which has been educating pupils for 93 years will close this summer. Streatham Independent School, known as Streatham Schools, on Victoria Road West, has told shocked parents that it will close at the end of the current term. It means that no new pupils will enrol at the school from September, and the current pupils and staff are being supported in finding new schools elsewhere. A spokesperson for the school told the Champion that it has suffered in recent years due to falling pupil numbers and a decision was taken this year “to draw a line in the sand.” Streatham Schools, which is located across two Victorian buildings on Victoria Road West, has become known for their small classrooms which staff say allows pupils to benefit from greater attention from teachers. Although the school is closing, Streatham House Nursery, which operates from the same location, will remain open. The spokesperson said: “It is with great sadness

that we have had to announce that Streatham Schools will not be opening again in September. “This wonderful school has been open since 1925; 93 years of educating pupils to become not only suc-

cessful in their chosen field, but also to be considerate, ethical, and well rounded young people. Continued inside

Prolific burglar who would dress like a workman is jailed By our Court Reporter A PROLIFIC burglar who broke into homes in Crosby and Southport has been jailed. Gerard Sanders, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the eight burglaries in Sefton and Wirral between January 5 and February 6 this year. Liverpool Crown Court heard how he hurled a garden gnome through a patio door to enter one property in the Wirral and stole jewellery but as he was then spotted running away and discarded the bag of loot. Sanders, 34, would dress like a workman wearing a hi-vis jacket and beanie hat. Liverpool Crown Court heard that it was the third time he has appeared for sentence as a “third strike burglar” and jailing him for four years four months a judge warned him that unless he stops such offending he will receive longer and longer sentences. Jewellery was taken by him in all but one of the break-ins and Judge Gary Woodhall said much of it had great sentimental value for the victims and they had all been left upset by the intrusion and ransacking of their homes. “You say it is killing your mother but it has not dissuaded you from committing these

offences,” he added. Iain Criddle, prosecuting, said that the stolen property ran into more than £15,000 and he also caused considerable damage during the raids, including smashing a Victorian cabinet which had great sentimental value. He first struck at a property in Southport on January 5 and made off with jewellery and a mobile phone. He then hopped onto a train and went to a home in Merrilocks Road, Blundellsands where he stole £3,000 worth of jewellery, cash and a bicycle. On January 24 he returned broke into a house in Dowhills Road in Blundellsands by smashing the patio door and stole a £7000 Breitling watch and then got back on the train and went to Formby.

Mr Criddle said that he used a concrete planter to smash his way into a house where he again stole jewellery of great sentimental value and left a muddy trail across the carpet. As in the other burglaries he made an “untidy search” of the premises during which he “smashed to pieces” a Victorian cabinet. He returned to Blundellsands on February 6 and raided a home in Warren Road where he stole an iPhone, an iPad and jewellery. Mr Criddle said Sanders had also raided three homes on the Wirral in those two months and made off with jewellery from each property. When arrested Sanders, who has committed 90 previous offences, made no comment. Some of the stolen property has been recovered including a necklace that his girlfriend was found to be wearing. David Woods, defending, said Sanders had been released from prison last August and went to live with his mum in Utting Avenue, Liverpool, but she had to move in with her mother and there was no room for him. He became homeless and developed a heroin addiction and returned to committing burglary offences. He was now motivated to keep out of trouble because he knows it is upsetting his mum.

Families enjoying the sun at Crosby beach

Coastguards called out six times in one day as crowds flock to beaches

Rescue teams busy after children stuck in mud while ‘many people’ were in danger of being left cut off by incoming tide Report by Tom Martin COASTGUARDS were called out to a record number of incidents on Crosby beach with reports of missing children and people sinking in the sand on Bank Holiday Monday. Crosby Coastguard Rescue Team dealt with six incidents across seven hours on Monday, May 7 as thousands of people flocked to the beach to enjoy the soaring temperatures. The Champion recently published a front page article about a woman having to be rescued from sinking sands, and there were similar incidents on Monday. In one HM Coastguard call-out, they

were sent to an area of the beach in Waterloo to reports that four children had become stuck in the mud. They were assisted by firefighters from Merseyside Fire and Rescue, who were sent out to assist the coastguard in three separate incidents across the day. A spokesperson for Crosby Coastguard Rescue Team said: “The team made their way to the location, however, on arrival they discovered that the casualties had self recovered and had left the area. “The team carried out an area search to ensure that this was the case.” The coastguard also helped families find children who had gone missing. They were also tasked with warning a “large number of people” who were in danger of being cut off by the incoming tide. This was due to the gullies behind them filling up with water, so RNLI beach lifeguards were sent out to advise them to come back to safety. Emergency services were also sent towards Formby and Ainsdale to assist with other missing children reports.

A Crosby Coastguard spokesperson added: “Please check the tide times and be aware that it can come in behind you if you’re on a sandbank before venturing out on the coast. “Follow the signs warning of soft mud and most of all know where your children are at all times. “Remember if you see anyone in difficulty on the coast dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.” Merseyside Police have issued a warning to parents to make sure their children are safe when visiting the beach. A spokesperson said: “Parents if you're visiting the beach or busy areas to enjoy the sunshine, please remember to keep a close eye on your little ones. “In crowded areas it is easy to become separated and lose sight of a child. Should this happen and you cannot locate your child call 999.” Meanwhile, there were renewed appeals on social media for dog walkers to be extra-careful with their pets on the beach after more toxic palm oil was sighted washed up along the Sefton coastline.

Residents left fuming over congested roads and left-behind litter AS people flocked to Crosby beach residents were angry at parking problems and litter left behind. Hotspots for parking are usually near the Marine Lake in Waterloo with cars left around the Marine Terrace and South Road area, as well as Crosby Leisure Centre and further along towards the former Coastguard station at Burbo Bank in Blundellsands. The hot weather left motorists scrambling for spaces in any available car parks, leaving the rest to make the most of the nearby roads for parking. It left some residents unhappy and they got in touch with the Champion to complain that cars had been left

“We have been non-selective, which means that some of our pupils have not started with high academic expectations. “This has never been an issue, we have found their strengths and built upon them, so that every one of our pupils, has gained in confidence, and left Streatham happy, and confidently looking forward to their future. “Blundellsands and Crosby have very good state schools provisions and the competition can be difficult for independent schools due to the size and configuration of our setting. “Due to gradually falling numbers, it has been decided to draw a line in the sand. Things will carry on as normal until the end of the summer term. “We would like to thank the building owner, Tim Apel, for his understanding during this difficult time and we want to make it clear that the building will remain after we leave. “We would like to thank all staff and pupils both old and new for their continued support, and for keeping in touch with the school over the years. “It has been a second home to all of us and we wish everyone who has ever been involved with this much loved school all the very best for the future.”

Since the closure was announced, former pupils and staff members have been sharing memories of the school on social media. Debbie Mansour posted on Facebook: “I so loved the ten years I spent teaching at Streatham Schools. “I loved all the girls I taught and the funny eccentric delightful friends that I worked with. “It was such a happy school.” Carol Skellam said: “Such sad news. Streatham was a major part of my life over many years. “I gained lifelong friendships and have had the pleasure of watching past pupils grow up into happy, successful, confident adults. “It makes me proud to have had some input into the success of these pupils. “So sad for the present staff who have worked so hard to keep the school going.” Ashleigh Bean said: “I am so sad to hear of this news! “I spent my first years of life at Streatham and feel I was born and bred at this wonderful school. “Attending from two to 16 I had the best years of my life and would go back in an instant given the opportunity.” Debbie Dorgan said: “So upset about this marvellous school closing. I started in 1965 and still see quite a lot of my class mates. “We made friends for a life time.”

across driveways and on pavements. Many say residential roads around home are always congested because people want to avoid paying parking fees at Burbo Bank car park. They believe Sefton Council could help residents by putting double yel-

low lines on Mariners Road, which leads up to Crosby Leisure Centre. There were also complaints from locals of litter left behind by beach-goers, with Sefton Council bins overflowing and many choosing to pile up their rubbish on the ground next to bins.

Fire erupted at site of waste company A WASTE company which stores flammable materials was at the centre of the huge fire that broke out last week in Kirkdale – and firefighters have ruled out arson. The Champion reported last week how the blaze, on Monday, April 30, on Redfern Street, saw

huge flames erupt from the site, which is next to the railway line. It has now emerged that the factory is owned by Greenway Environmental, and that Merseyside Fire and Rescue believe it was not started deliberately. Fire officials also revealed they received more than 100

calls from concerned residents who spotted the fire. The blaze brought trains to a halt, nearby streets including Stanley Road and Ball Hall Road were closed off and officials advised locals to keep their windows and doors shut as a safety precaution.

Liverpool Central named one of most popular train stations in country LIVERPOOL Central train station has been named one of the most popular in the UK. Independent watchdog Transport Focus took the views of more than 28,000 people at 56 stations for its ranking. Of those surveyed at Liverpool Central station, 91% said they were satisfied which placed it sixth highest in Britain. By comparison, the most popular was London King's Cross with 96%

satisfaction, and at the other end of the scale Glasgow Queen Street was the most unpopular with 58%. Transport Focus said the top priorities for passengers were arrival time information, waiting rooms and the overall look of the station when it carried out the survey between September and November last year. Merseyrail say that Liverpool Central is one of the busiest stations outside London.

Former Liverpool captain Johnny Wheeler given mark of honour by club

Family thank fans for making his day extra special Report by Kenny Parker LIVERPOOL FC ’s oldest living former captain, who at one time held the record for the fastest hat-trick in English football history, has been honoured by the club. Johnny Wheeler, 89, who was born in Crosby, played for the Reds between 1956 and 1963, and was captain 1958/9. He had been signed from then First Division Bolton Wanderers, with whom he played in the famous FA Cup ‘Matthews Final’ of 1953. Johnny, who now resides at Alsley Lodge in Rufford, was recently invited to the Anfield boardroom before the club’s game with Stoke City where chief executive Peter Moore presented him with a photograph from his playing days signed by current manager Jurgen Klopp It says: ‘Dear Johnny, LFC is only the club it is today thanks to players like you.

Corrupt police officer has jail term reduced A CORRUPT police officer from Waterloo who was jailed for five years for selling personal details of car crash victims to claims companies has had his sentence reduced. Former Lancashire Police officer Nigel Mungur, of Haigh Road, was jailed last October for stealing confidential data before selling it for £363,000. Also guilty of the crime was his wife, Nicola Mungar, who was also a police officer, but she was given a 12-month conditional discharge. However, last week at Lon-

don’s Appeal Court he had his five year sentence reduced to four years after his lawyers argued that his jail term was far too tough. The Champion reported three years ago how the couple, who were both Lancashire Police constables, were sacked for gross misconduct. Last year's court hearing found that the data was used by the claims companies to cold-call people who had been in accidents. An investigation was

launched by Lancashire Police in 2014 after people complained they were getting calls from law firms when they had not given their details to anyone other than the police. In one particular instance, a man was called even before a police officer had arrived to investigate his report. Over a seven-year period, it was said that Nigel Mungur accessed the data of individuals involved in road traffic collisions on 21,802 occasions and set up a firm to sell the data to claims companies.

When the company's licence was revoked in early 2009, he applied to set up another one and paid the registration fee with a cheque signed by his wife to avoid suspicion. The 40-year-old admitted misconduct in public office and conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office, and conspiracy to convert criminal property and to gain unauthorised access to a computer. Mrs Mungur had pleaded guilty to obtaining personal data.

MP hails achievements of former homeless people at charity ’s awards evening BOOTLE MP Peter Dowd visited homelessness charity Emmaus Merseyside to celebrate its achievements. The charity, based in Seaforth, helps formerly homeless people by giving them a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it. Mr Dowd joined special guests including Carl Beer, chief executive of Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority, at a celebration event on Friday, April 27 and presented a host of certificates to 19 service users following the successful completion of a number of training programmes. He said: “I was very impressed with the work Emmaus does in helping support people who’ve experienced homelessness. “It was heartening to attend a celebration event to

recognise the personal achievements of companions, who’ve had the chance to re-build their lives.” Some of the training was supported by the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority Community Fund which helped to increase Emmaus Merseyside’s knowledge and awareness of social media marketing for their furniture recycling activities. As a result, the amount of goods saved from landfill increased significantly during the year. Other training courses completed by Emmaus companions included Food Safety & Catering, First Aid at Work, Fire Evacuation Awareness, Introduction to Sign Language, Bee Keeping and NVQ Level 2 Certificate in Warehousing & Storage. Nigel Mellor, chair of Emmaus Merseyside, said: “I am really proud of all our members who have completed training courses and received certificates and thank Peter Dowd MP for taking the time out to visit us and present the certificates.”

Hundreds set to take part in annual Run for 96 race HUNDREDS of people – including Reds legend Jamie Carragher – are set to take part in the annual Run for the 96 event this weekend. Taking place on Saturday, May 12 at north Liverpool's Stanley Park, those up for the challenge will jog around the park with an aim of raising money for charity. Bootle-born Carragher is not only an ambassador for the event through his 23 Foundation charity, but he will also lace up his running shoes to take part alongside his dad Phil. The endurance challenge is held every year to celebrate the

lives of 96 Liverpool fans, who were unlawfully killed in the Hillsborough tragedy on 15 April 1989. The events also remember the families of the 96 and the survivors, who have tirelessly fought for justice with the utmost dignity for 29 years. Jamie said: “I am delighted the 23 Foundation has become part of Run For The 96. “Last year we supported more than 1,100 families, foodbanks and other vital projects. “Our aim is to help young people have a better life and encourage them to achieve their dreams.

“I’m looking forward to taking part in event with my dad. Celebrating the lives of the 96 is very close to my heart as a Scouser and former Liverpool player.” Over three years, donations and funds raised through the Run For The 96 5K event has totalled £22,000 for good causes. Run For The 96 5K entrants will receive a commemorative medal and a red or blue T-shirt. The t-shirts are available in advance, to be worn for the run.

Park trust should have Waiting list for plots Keep all the roads open so better way to collect fees while some left vacant it is the same for everyone As a member of the Key Park Trust in Blundellsands, I was dismayed to find that the trust have a questionable approach to requesting fees from members. The current method is to email out notices of key swap outs in newsletters or on post notes attached gates. If the email is bounced back then it is tough luck, despite having evidence from the email provider it did not arrive. No common sense has been shown to try again or contact people via the numbers they ask for when signing up. I ask that the governing body of the park trust consider changing this hit and miss method of collection of fees to a more reliable method.

I am writing to express concerns over Sefton Council's inability to manage their allotment sites whilst somehow finding it appropriate to put up annual rental fees. The waiting lists for these valued assets in Crosby are in excess of stupid. It took me eight years to acquire mine, yet I see plots on my site being left vacant through lack of interest by those whose job it is to manage them. It is extremely disheartening. Sefton Council should be ashamed of themselves. People should be held to account and if necessary replaced. Yet, as usual I expect this call to fall on deaf ears.

As a non car user who lives on Amaury Road I disagree strongly with the recent letters supporting the closure of Edgemoor Drive. It is a selfish view from people only concerned about their road benefiting. What about the top end on the estate where children play outside every day? If an accident happens because of the extra use of other roads what will happen then? The problem can only be solved by opening all the roads. We all pay taxes. My point is this.

PICTURE of the week

Are Cranfield Road and Rosemoor Drive any different from any other roads? Do they pay more taxes? To me it’s discrimination. The problem is selfishness, ‘not in by back yard’ as the saying goes. It is a populated area so we all have to put up with it. So get over it and open all the roads. We are all the same. Avery concerned resident, By email

Alzheimer ’s Society invite you become a Dementia Friend I want to invite your readers to unite for Alzheimer ’s Society’s Dementia Action Week, which takes place from May 21-27. There are 18,294 people living with dementia in Merseyside and too many face the condition alone without adequate support. During the week we want people to take actions such as becoming a Dementia Friend, which allows people to learn a little bit more about what it’s like to live with dementia and then turn that understanding into action. In Merseyside there are already 38,623 Dementia Friends. Help us increase that number at dementiafriends.org.uk There will also be events taking place in Merseyside around the theme of community change. Get your family, friends or work colleagues to sign up and be the first to hear more about what’s happening locally at alzheimers.org.uk /DementiaActionWeek There are other ways to get involved, such as fundraising with our Challenge Dementia Quiz pack or taking part in research through the Join Dementia Research campaign.

Expanding gym means fewer books and computers in library

Criminals are laughing at us

I would like to add my thoughts and concerns regarding the demise of the library at the Meadows Leisure Centre in Maghull. As a regular user of the library over the last few years, I have always found it puzzling how a library can be situated inside a building including a fitness club. This resulted in loud music blaring out while library users have tried to study and read in some peace and quiet. But it seems people have just got on with it. Now to add even more insult, the council have decided to add a gym which has led to the closure of the upper floor and resul-

ted in the ‘library ’ being shoehorned into half of the ground floor and the loss of many books and computers available to use. Why we need another gym in Maghull is a question in itself (I count three or four now) but the dwindling numbers of books and computers is unacceptable. It seems inevitable that the whole Meadows building will soon become a fitness centre and we will lose our precious library.

So the assistant chief constable of Merseyside tells us that crime has gone up 14% but that we’re better off than some places. Well frankly I don’t care about ‘some places’, I care about here. And if he says crime has gone up 14% I’d put money on it being nearer 20% - because a lot of minor crime goes unreported. People know that the police aren’t interested it's just more paperwork for them, and in the rare case where a petty criminal gets caught the sentences handed out are a joke. Offenders are laughing their heads off.

Woman fined for walking onto railway lines and for assaults A WOMAN with mental health issues has been fined for walking onto the lines at Blundellsands and Crosby railway station. The 28 year old woman, who lives in the Crosby area, appeared in custody at Liverpool Complex Case Court on May 2 where she pleaded guilty to four assaults, which included assaults at a hospital and on her carer, the willful obstruction of a highway, and trespassing on railway property. Angela Conlan, prosecuting, gave a brief outline of the offences saying that the first three assaults occurred when she was being treated at Aintree Hospital and involved her kicking one woman in the groin “causing immediate pain”, kicking a man twice to his knee “again causing pain”, and also biting the bicep of another man, again “causing immediate pain”. Mrs Conlan told of how on another occa-

sion the woman had had taken her top of and then sat in the street with a piece of glass. When approached by a member of staff who attempted to cover her up, she threatened the staff member with the glass. Then on a separate occasion, Mrs Conlan said the woman had climbed down on to the lines of Blundellsands and Crosby railway station telling people that she was going to kill herself. “They tried to reason with her for about ten minutes,” Mrs Conlan said. The fourth assault occurred the day before her court appearance when she was said to have sprayed Cif cleaner in the face of a support worker. Solicitor Paul Fletcher said that the offences looked very serious on paper and “put her in some difficulty in terms of sentencing” but he added that she was a

vulnerable person who appeared to be crying out for help. The solicitor also stressed how the company that look after her were wiling to continue to care for her. The woman who was subject to the most recent assault had also assisted by attending court and was willing to take her home. “The company are still very much in support of her,” he said, “She accepts that this pattern of behaviour has to stop.” After reports from the probation service and mental health services, in addition to a psychiatric report, were submitted to the court, District Judge Richard Clancy sentenced the woman to a 12-month community order, with a requirement she attend 20 days of rehabilitative activity, and pay £50 to each of the victims of assault. She was also fined £40 for each offence of obstructing the highway and trespassing the railway line.

Metro mayor marks his full year in charge Report by Tom Martin LIVERPOOL City Region metro mayor Steve Rotheram has marked one year since he was elected into the newly created role. Elections for a new Mayoral Combined Authority leader were held on May 4 last year, with the former Walton MP officially taking up the role four days later. The city region has had a Combined Authority since 2014, bringing together the political leaders of the six local authorities - Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral along with the Local Enterprise Partnership. With the election of a metro mayor, that body became a Mayoral Combined Authority with additional powers over key priorities including employment and skills, strategic housing and planning, transport and highways, economic and business growth. Commenting on the one-year anniversary, metro mayor Steve Rotheram told the Champion: “This has been a very exciting first year as metro mayor of the Liverpool City Region and, working with the leaders of our six local authorities, we have

already achieved so much. “Devolution means that we can make our own decisions here, rather than having them taken for us in Whitehall. “We’re using that power to deliver an investment programme of over £1 billion in transport, skills, economic development and housing. “One year on I’m more convinced than ever that we are making real progress towards a brighter future.”

Plaque honours church volunteer WAYFARERS SHOPPING ARCADE

BRIDAL EXHIBITION

Report by Tom Martin A COMMEMORATIVE plaque has been unveiled at a Litherland church in memory of a popular community volunteer. Stan Martin, who passed away in May last year at the age of 87, devoted 47 years to a Church Lads’ Brigade in Litherland and was a sides-person at St Philip’s Church for a remarkable 74 years. To honour his legacy, a plaque was unveiled on Sunday, May 6 by Reverend Alan Finch and Stan's wife Pat Martin. During the service, Stan, known fondly as ‘Mr M’ was described as a “loving and caring person” who helped transform the church through his role on the building committee and the time he spent maintaining the grounds and woodland garden. The service culminated with Rev Finch carrying out a dedication of a cross, which was placed in the church in memory of Pat and Stan's daugh-

ter, Susan Tracey. As well as devoting nearly five decades to the Lads’ Brigade at St Philip’s Church, Stan was also the commanding officer for two decades and ran its 40-strong bugle band which had a superb reputation. In 2013, Stan and Pat were given the Sefton CVS Community Award in recognition of their combined 130 years of community work. Pat and Stan received the award from the former Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Maureen Fearn, at Sefton CVS’s annual general meeting and annual conference at Linacre Mission in Bootle.

Pat Martin helps to unveil the plaque at Litherland Church in loving memory of her husband Stan Martin (left), who was a very popular community volunteer who also ran a bugle band.

My boating holiday on the Broads turned a little flat I CANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T have been touching wood (even though my river cruiser Manxman is made of about eight tons of the stuff) when I wrote my last column about my hopes for am uninterrupted holiday on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. What did I say? That I was sure my faithful old boat would start after its winter sojourn - and that I would have no trouble with her ancient electrics. Asking for trouble maybe? Well I got it, in spades. Not only would Manxman not start, the interior lights were more akin to sulky glow-worms than anything to read by. Both the domestic and starter batteries were flat as the proverbial flukes. Now that should not have been possible because she had just been fitted with a new alternator and was plugged into a battery charging unit. And although the cash in the meter had run out they should still have been more than capable of starting the engine - or for that matter of enabling me to see what might be amiss. Still, hope springs eternal, and after putting a new card in the meter and waiting a short time, the motor coughed into life and the lights burned brightly. Now perhaps I should explain that the fact that old alternator gave up the ghost was my fault. Right at the end of my last cruise of 2017, the ignition had stayed on (I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why) and by the Law of Sod the ignition key fob had flopped over the warning light so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realise the danger for perhaps an hour - by which time the unit had burned itself out. Still, a highly competent â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sparky â&#x20AC;&#x2122; agreed to fit a replacement but although he listened at the time, he did not check the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;X-Splitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; box (which decides which bank of batteries most needs charging and directs the electricity in that direction first) which I felt had been not charging the domestics as well as it used to and should. Nor did he check the health of the batteries themselves. To cut a long and sorry story short, the end result was that even after a long dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run and with the benefit of the three solar panels I have, by half way through the evening the TV went off, along with the fridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh dear!â&#x20AC;? I said - or something like that. Still, the new alternator was charging the starter well, so I was able to carry on regardless with the aid of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;electric postsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; available at several public moorings to keep creature comforts afloat â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;till morning. At the end of my first week though, the new alternator suddenly stopped functioning and an emergency call-out to the electrician brought the bad news that yet another replacement would be necessary. And since he now thought the main trouble did indeed lie with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;X-Splitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contrivance, could I get the boat (now devoid of any charging) back to his boatyard - which happened to be a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sailing away? I did. A further day later he turned up and fitted a third alternator, ditched the 'X-Split' and fitted a more modern, far simpler device which fulfilled the same function. So now off I set once more, thinking my troubles were behind me. But no. The (now certainly charging) domestic batteries were still not holding their charge. So back to boatyard and sparky. He now decided, belatedly, actually to check the condition of the two domestic batteries. One was borderline good, the other about as much use as a soggy melon - and that one was dragging the other down with it. And that, my friends, just about marked the end of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spring Cruise. All in all, hardly the best boating holiday I and the crew (Tina and Cinders) have ever had - but I still got quite a lot of pleasure from it. And until the bad weather set in - just as my real electricity problems set in - I gained a sun tan. Throughout it all, I also met some new friends particularly one of the River Inspectors - now of renamed River Rangers (sorry Mr Ranger Sir!). One couple from the Isle of Man even asked to take a photo of me, wearing my Isle of Man Steam Packet Co jumper in front of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Manxman.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Celebrating 25 Years in Business 1-3 Seabank Road Southport PR9 0EW 01704 530671

THE owner of a Southport-based eatery has shared his secrets for success after branching out to quadruple the business as well as taking on not one but two bars as well! Russell Jones opened Auberge on Seabank Road in May 1993 as a simple, rustic French bistro with places for 30 guests. It quickly gained a fantastic reputation for it’s quality food, efficient service and reasonable prices - paving the way for a sister restaurant in Tarleton in 1996, which they also named Auberge. They sold this in 1999 to focus all of their time and energy on expanding their original town-centre venue, now renamed the Auberge Brasserie and in 2003 they added a bigger, grander kitchen, much more serviceable bar area and increased mezzanine space for private parties and events. It has now grown to 120 covers plus al fresco dining terrace, from the baby it was in 1993. Sacrebleu bar next door but two was born in December 2008 and Le Grog bar next door, specialising in rums from around the world, was added in 2016 – meaning that guests can enjoy a full evening of entertainment without leaving the road, or getting wet! Russell said: “The success I believe is from exceptional standards of fresh food produced on the premises being paramount in all

aspects of our dishes and menus, immaculate surroundings in an informal and relaxed dining environment at a price for all to afford and enjoy. “The staff at Auberge - some of which are still here from our opening day, especially Linda! - take great pleasure in ensuring your visit is a pleasant experience. Our regular customers from locals to much further afield have played an important part in our growth and we still see the same faces from our first few months of trading all those years ago. “Although the town centre has seen somewhat of a decline over the last few years, we are now complimented as a destination restaurant for every party occasion or just an intimate catch up for couples and friends and are a fantastic reason for visiting the town.

“Our menus have also moved with the times. We offer a two or three course lunch £12.95/£15.95 from noon – 2.30pm from Monday to Friday and noon – 5pm on Saturday. On Sundays, three courses including two roasts is £14.95. “We have a dinner menu comprising of two or three courses £16.95/£19.95 available daily. The A La Carte menus is available every evening and lunchtimes on request. “We also offer an amazing early tea time menu from 5.30pm-6.30pm daily (served all evening Tuesday 5.30pm-9.30pm) with three courses just £10.95.” • All menus and live music events are available to view online at aubergebrasserie.com or call 01704 530671 for more information.

Crime prevention groups invited to apply for funding ORGANISATIONS which are working to help prevent crime and protect communities in Sefton are being invited to apply for a share of a fund aimed at helping to build stronger, safer communities. This is the fourth year that Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy has opened the Crime Prevention Fund, which is used to help charities, community groups and social enterprises. A total of £135,000 is available across Merseyside from the fund for innovative community safety projects or schemes that will run over the next 12 months. This year the Commissioner is encouraging organisations to work together to submit bids for between £5,000 and £25,000 from the grant and she is specifically inviting applications for project which focus on tackling serious and organised crime. She said: “Serious and organised crime is, for many people, their greatest concern. It blights our communities, bringing misery and harm and causing decent, ordinary people to live in fear. “Many organisations and community groups are already working with Merseyside Police and my office is tackling this issue, and I want to encourage and maximise this collaborative approach by encouraging organisations to join forces to bid for funding from the Crime Prevention Fund. “Local people understand their communities better than anyone and know what will work best to improve their area. We are fortunate to have a wealth of voluntary groups which are working hard to prevent people, especially young people from getting involved in crime. By pooling resources and working even closer together we can all do more to make a difference for communities. “I’ve met hundreds of people who are really proud and passionate about the places they live in and are committed to keeping them safe and I’m excited to see their proposals for how this funding can be best spent.”

TILE WORLD See our extensive range on our website www.tileworld.co.uk

PORCELANOSA AGENT Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy

Last year, 13 grassroots organisations were chosen from among more than 70 applications to receive a share of the fund to help make communities across Merseyside safer. A £10,000 grant was given to Breckfield and North Everton Neighbourhood Council (BNEC) to help them deliver their Making Waves project which delivers both outreach and centre-based services for young people living in areas of high deprivation to divert them away from crime. The Crime Commissioner added: “Over the last year, this funding has helped to deliver some really important projects which have made a profound difference in the lives of the people they support. Even a small cash boost can be of huge benefit to many of these grassroots projects and I look forward to seeing what more we can deliver together over the next 12 months.” The fund will be administered by the Community Foundation for Merseyside (CFM), an independent charity which assists grant-making and charitable giving. Local groups who would benefit from the funding can find more details on its website here http://www.cfmerseyside.org.uk//funds/crime-prevention-fund. The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday, June 11.

Will week extended ST JOSEPH’S Hospice has extended its usual Will Week to a whole month this May. This May, the Thornton-based hospice is being supported by 12 solicitors across Merseyside who will be giving up their time and waiving their fees throughout the month so that locals can write a will, or update an existing one, and avoid paying any solicitors’ fees. Participating solicitors will offer a standard willwriting service and all the hospice asks is that you consider making a donation to St Joseph’s Hospice. Julie McAdam, senior community fundraiser at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “We are really pleased to have secured a great partnership with several local

As a guide, the cost for a single simple will is approximately £100. “The hospice nurses provides specialist palliative and end of life care for over 200 patients across Merseyside every year as well as support for their loved ones. As a registered charity, we need to raise £8,750 every day to keep our services running so your support of this year’s Will Month is vital.” The contact details of all participating solicitors are available at www.jospice.org.uk

Farmers asked for their views on future after UK leaves EU Report by Kenny Parker THE NATIONAL Farmers Union is encouraging farmers to contribute to the Government’'s consultation on the future of farming in the UK after the country leaves the EU. The organisation says that a current paper released by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) entitled Health and Harmony: the future for food, farming and the environment in a Green Brexit, is a once in a generation chance to ensure farming’s voice is heard when it matters. NFU North West regional director David Hall said: “The Government’s consultation on the future of farming closes on Tuesday May 8 so it’s really important you have your say now. If you haven’t already responded to the consultation, we’ve provided a simple online form on the NFU’s website. We’ve also highlighted three key areas that the NFU feels are crucial. “Firstly food production - maintaining a robust and resilient domestic food production sector is in the nation’s interest. “Secondly, trade - it is essential that government trade policy ensures that our current world leading production standards are not undermined. “And thirdly the Environment - producing food in a productive and resource efficient way brings environmental benefits for the UK and the world. This is an opportunity to remind the Government that a safe, secure and traceable domestic food supply that is affordable for all is a public right that depends on a thriving farming sector.” The NFU says that during a meeting held in Cumbria to discuss the consultation, the most vocal audience reaction to the potential road ahead came when the subject of the phasing out of the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS), an agricultural subsidy scheme of under EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The UK will formally leave the EU in March 2019, but it is anticipated that government will agree to an implementation period lasting for around another two years. Once Defra has the freedom to move away from the CAP rules it proposes that there will be an ‘agricultural transition’ period in England. During this ‘agricultural transition’ period, direct payments (BPS) will continue. However, Defra is proposing to reduce and phase out direct payments (BPS) completely in England by the end of this period.

That is believed to have been the fastest hat-trick on record until Robbie Fowler’s effort for Liverpool FC in 1994, which was surpassed by Sadio Mane for Southampton in 2015. He was also picked to play for England in 1954 against Northern Ireland. After retiring from playing football, Johnny was a trainer at Bury FC until 1969 before becoming a universal bulk handler. Sue was thankful for the efforts of LFC to make her dad’s day such a success and added that it was

the fans who put the icing on the cake. She said: “The fans are ultimately what made it for me. “While walking to the boardroom, fans were stopping my dad for his autograph and he honoured every single one. “One guy asked to shake his hand and asked for a hug. Dad does not usually do hugs but he obliged. “Even with his dementia it was such a wonderful day. “It was one of the best days of my life.”

Bobby Crush

Interview by Henry James VETERAN entertainer Bobby Crush who has recently appeared on TV in Last Laugh in Vegas can be seen on stage this week in Summer Holiday, which has made its first stop at the Liverpool Empire. Bobby is playing the role of Jerry, the long-suffering agent, for the first eight weeks of the tour in the show that is based on the iconic 1960s film of the same name, starring Cliff Richard and The Shadows. He has been famous in the UK for 45 years mainly as a pianist, but also as a songwriter, actor, broadcaster and television presenter. He rose to fame after six winning appearances on Opportunity Knocks (ITV). Bobby explained a bit about the character he is playing: “Jerry is the agent of a female American pop star who is feeling pressurised and wants to get away from it all. She disguises herself as a boy in order to join our boys on the London bus on the trip to Greece. “I am her agent chasing her to go back to work. I do this in tandem with Stella who is a typical stage mother. She is trying to live her life through Barbara. She wanted to be a star herself but never got the opportunity. “Jerry does not know what he is doing. He is chasing the bus around Switzerland, Italy, Greece in order to nab this girl and bring her back to work, so she can make hit records.” Summer Holiday includes all of the number one hits from the movie and some more Cliff Richard classics. Bobby said Summer Holiday is a family show and commented: “All of the songs in the musical are recognisable and in the past have been Cliff Richard hits. They include: The Young Ones, In The Country, The Next Time and the title song Summer Holiday. “It is set in the 60s when the fashions were garish and we take audiences back to a more innocent age. These days we tend to be a bit more cynical. All the songs have stood the test of time. These songs are really well constructed and well crafted. “It is a family show that people from eight to 80 will enjoy.” The stage show for Summer Holiday sticks to a similar storyline to the film, but there are differences. Bobby explained: “Weaved into our show are lots of different bits that weren’t in the original film. “In this show I also play the piano. I don’t think the original Jerry played the piano.” Bobby has had a varied career in show business and commented: “I started off as a pianist but realised very early in the game that the way to survive is to develop other skills. Over the years I have had acting lessons, and singing and dancing lessons. It has allowed me to pick up offers of pantos and musicals and things away from the keyboard.”

WINE, Italian cuisine and Queen’s Greatest Hits. As I know from painful experience with all three – which normally involves indigestion or annoyed neighbours banging on walls – you definitely can have too much of a good thing. Unfortunately, I can now add enjoying a sports car, top down, in the spring sunshine to that list. It is, I reckon, exactly the sort of hedonistic petrolhead hoot that makes all those hours spent queuing in city centre traffic jams all worthwhile; the giddy thrill of going exploring in search of a country pub in something that puts the wind in your hair and a big smile on your face. It doesn’t matter whether you’re doing it in a 1930s MG T-type, a Lotus Seven from the mid-Sixties or a brand-new BMW Z4, because even though their technology is wildly different, the results are always broadly the same. This is exactly the sort of bright-eyed optimism I ventured out with over a glorious Bank Holiday last weekend in my own small sports car, my trusty (if slightly faded-looking) Mazda MX-5. For a 28-year-old roadster it still works a treat, happily hitting the high notes with its rev counter, time and time again, but unfortunately it seems there’s one component that just isn’t as well engineered for the task as all of Mazda’s double wishbone suspension and twin overhead cam engine trickery. Me, to be exact. What I’d forgotten was that in blazing sunshine and 24-degree heat that human skin just isn’t as good at coping with hour after hour of top-down fun. I naively ventured out for a two-hour drive to see some old racing cars going sideways at the Donington Historic Festival, spent the day looking at Ford Capris and Jaguar D-types, and spent another two hours driving home again. Driving with the roof down for hours at a time is deceptive, because the breeze blowing onto your face masks the fact that you’re slowly simmering like a barbecue sausage. It was only when I returned home eight long hours later that I realised my complexion looked like a curious blend of an Oompa Lumpa and a freshly grown tomato. No amount of aftersun was going to remedy this one overnight! So if you are lucky enough to have a two-seater convertible at your disposal, do make sure that you keep a bottle of sun tan lotion to hand so you can keep on applying it throughout the day (and not just first thing in the morning, which was my schoolboy error). Play it sensibly and you might just be able to enjoy all three days with the top down, as opposed to spending two of them trapped indoors, nursing colossal sunburn. Although it did give me the chance to crack open a fresh bottle of wine and stick Queen on once again, of course…

SPORT

Northern top table as Sephton claims 6-56 in win at Rainford NORTHERN continue to set the pace at the top of the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division after recording their third consecutive win of the campaign with a 32 run victory at Rainford. The table toppers elected to bat and with the help of Chris Laker 46, Liam Grey 33 and Tom Sephton 25 managed to post 180 up on the board, with Andy Davies taking 5-46. In reply, two quick wickets from Jamie Barnes reduced Rainford to 1-2, skipper David Snellgrove 36 and John Dotters 49 restored some respectability, but they were dismissed by Tom Sephton who duly wrapped up

the innings for 148 with figures of 6-56, leaving Davies unbeaten on 26* and maintaining Northern’s 100 per cent record. Third placed Formby recorded a 92 run win at Wallasey. The visitors recovered from 56-6 to 158 all out, thanks to half centuries from Ollie Sutton who finished unbeaten on 51* and Lancashire’s Stephen Parry who scored 50, with Matthew Wilcox 438 and Matthew Keogh 3-44 taking the bulk of the wickets. In reply, a fine spell of bowling from the visitors helped dismiss the hosts for just 66, with spinner Parry claiming 4-5 off 8.5 overs.

Liptrot’s marathon spell helps Bootle crush Ormskirk FIRWOOD Bootle began the holiday weekend in sparkling fashion last Saturday with a crushing victory over the reigning Premier League champions Ormskirk at a sun drenched Brook Lane. Having elected to bat first, healthy partnerships of 42, 73 and 53 for the first three wickets put Bootle In a strong position, Sam Kershaw (69) making his maiden half-century for the club in the process. Craig Prince was eventually able to declare in the 55th over with a more than satisfactory 244-7 on the scoreboard. The home openers, Andy Baybutt and John Armstrong, made clear that they had no intention of being cowed by the target set for them, raising 58 together

before the latter had his middle stump knocked back by Chris Liptrot. That was all the incentive Bootle needed to seize the initiative as the total declined to 100-6, with Liptrot in particular causing all sorts of problems as he embarked upon an exhausting stint of 20 overs which ultimately yielded him figures of 6-61. Ormskirk battled on until the 45th over of their reply in an obviously losing cause before finally being all out for 157, a defeat by 87 runs. This coming weekend Bootle host Northern in the Premier League at Wadham Road on Saturday before travelling to Leigh the following afternoon for a second round Royal London Cup tie.

Heavy defeat for Hightown IN the Second Division, Hightown St Mary’s suffered a 90 run home defeat at the hands of Old Xaverians, the visitors chose to bat and thanks a century from opener Shaun Haigh (133 inc 16x4 & 6x6) were able to post 244 up on the board, with Muhammad Zeb 5-12 and Jim Kelly 4-57 taking the bowling honours. In reply, Matt Laybourne 48, Kelly 39 and Zeb 28 helped take the hosts to 147-5 before a lower order collapse led by Daniel Harrison 420 saw them dismissed for 154.

Maghull were held to a draw at home against Parkfield Liscard, after being asked to bat the hosts racked up an impressive 254-5 dec, thanks in the main to Jon Ring who carried his bat throughout the innings to score a magnificent unbeaten century (132*), with backup coming from all rounder Anthony Molloy who weighed in with 52. In reply, Robert Courtney top scored for the visitors who ended on 182-6, with Molloy 3-38 being the pick of the eight bowlers used by Paul Walters.

THIS weekend’s local LDCC fixture’s (1pm): Bootle v Northern, Formby v Rainford, Lytham v Ormskirk, Liverpool v Burscough, Prestatyn v Fleetwood Hesketh, Southport & Birkdale v Newton le Willows, Wavertree v Ainsdale, Northop Hall v Maghull, Skelmersdale v Hightown St Mary’s.

Assistant manager goes in shake-up at Marine MARINE assistant manager Tony Sullivan has left the club as boss Tommy Lawson reshuffles his backroom staff. Lawson revealed his “difficult decision” following Marine's final match of the season last week and admitted it will be hard to see Sullivan go because he is so popular with the fans. Also on the way out is sports therapist Chris Roberts, with Lawson saying this decision was made due to Roberts finding it hard to commute from London for midweek matches. Marine’s season ended last week having finished 19th in the league table and they also lost in the Liverpool Senior Cup Final. Lawson said: “I'd like to thank Tony and Chris for their input over the last couple of years. They've both worked hard and done the jobs they were asked to do. “Chris is spending a lot of time working down in London and was finding it difficult to cover midweek games, this became more of an issue at the back end of the

Tony Sullivan has left the club

season with all the games we had to fit in and obviously we need cover for all matches. “Tony and I had an honest face to face chat, at the end of the day I’m responsible for the team and my backroom team and I felt it was time to freshen things up starting with my staff. “That's not in any way a criticism of Tony, who don't forget was a manager himself before becoming my assistant and knows the challenges that the job can bring. “Tony was popular with our fans but sometimes you have to make difficult decisions that you believe are the right ones for Marine. “I am looking to fill the role quickly as we plan for next season and am hoping to announce a new assistant sooner rather than later. “Once again my thanks to both Tony and Chris and I wish them well wherever their career takes them.”

Fans invited to player awards evening MARINE fans are being invited to attend the end of season player awards. It will be held on Friday, May 11 at 8pm at the Arriva Suite at the Marine Travel Arena. The event sees the Marine Supporters Association [MSA] presenting the leading goal scorer, the supporter's player of

the season, supporter of the year and young supporter of the year. The club will present with the manager his player of the season, young player of the season and with the player's their player of the season. The event is hosted jointly by the MSA and the Marine Man-

agement Committee. Marine chairman Paul Leary said: “It is important that we stage this event to recognise the player’s efforts this season. “All of the football staff and the team have worked hard throughout with the highlight being the FA Trophy run and getting to the final of the Liver-

pool Senior Cup for the first time in ten years. “I hope that as many people turn up as possible to share in the excitement of the awards being presented by the MSA and the club to the players. “Last season’s shirts will also be auctioned to raise funds for the ground appeal.”

Remyca celebrate promotion Prestwich Heys 1 Litherland Remyca 1 LITHERLAND Remyca missed out on winning the title but they were celebrating anyway after gaining promotion. The top two teams in the NWCFL Division One are promoted and Remyca knew they were guaranteed at least second spot at the start of the final day of the season on Bank Holiday Monday, but they had a

chance of overtaking leaders Silsden if they dropped points. As it turned out, Remyca were undone by their own inability to beat Heys, but they won’t care as they are now looking forward to next season in NWCFL Premier Division. Remyca took the lead just after half time through Colin Quirk, his 50th goal for the club, but they conceded an equaliser on 57 minutes and the match ended 1-1.

Remyca finished second in the NWCFL Premier Division table.

Reds relegated after defeat in final match AFC Liverpool are set to be relegated after finishing fourth from bottom in the North West Counties

Premier Division, three points adrift of Abbey Hey after losing their final match 2-1 at home

against Charnock Richard. The Reds had gone ahead with a first minute

goal from Zach Hardacre but two second half goals from Carl Grimshaw won the match for the visitors.

Murphy header seals win for Bucks Abbey Hey 0 Bootle 1 DANIEL Murphy's second-half header was enough to hand Bootle all three points against Abbey Hey on Saturday, writes Connor O’Neill. After cruising to a comfortable 9-1 victory in their last outing against Barnton the Bucks faced a much sterner test here, against a Hey side that is fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table. The first-half was a tight and tense affair with both sides struggling to carve out clear-cut openings. Bootle's best chance came midway through the half when some neat play

01704 392 392

eventually saw Kieran Haligan find some space inside the Hey box but the winger dragged his effort wide. While at the other end, Hey's best chance came just before the interval. Ashford Blake released Petr Boyle down the right before the winger crossed for Adam Farrand who directed his effort over. But two minutes into the second-half and the games only goal arrived. Liam Loughlin's corner wasn't cleared and after Kev Edgar retrieved possession, the forward pulled the ball back to Michael Ordish whose first-time cross was headed home by Murphy from close-range. Bootle then squandered two chances to

double their advantage. First, Edgar latched onto Ste Hoy's through ball but his right-footed effort was blocked by the onrushing Ross Heywood. Before Heywood denied Ste Milne after the forward had raced past three players. Hey's best chance of an equaliser arrived sixteen minutes from time. Robert Swallow's corner ran all the way through to Blake whose instinctive firsttime flick was superbly pushed over by Ryan Jones. Bootle were beaten 4-0 at home to City of Liverpool FC on Monday with the visitors scoring two goals in each half. Bootle finish their season tomorrow (Thursday) at Padiham.
