Terror ordeal for staff but community rally round to support venue By Danielle Thompson

The Tipsy Monkey was targeted

THREE armed robbers terrified staff with machetes when they targeted a restaurant in Crosby at the weekend. Merseyside Police officers have launched an appeal for information after the men forced their way into the Tipsy Monkey restaurant on Liverpool Road shortly before 1am on Saturday (July 7), before making off with a quantity of cash – in what is believed to be just one in a run of robberies by the armed gang. Nobody was injured during the incident but members of staff were left shaken by their ordeal. The men were described as white, between 18-25 years of age and spoke with Liverpudlian accents. It is believed they ran off down Vale Road before making off in a waiting light-coloured 4x4 vehicle. A CCTV and A CCTV image has been released of the robbers. forensic investigation is underway. “They had their faces covered completely and their George Tudor-Williams, the manager of the Tipsy Monkey told the Champion: “Our staff are shaken up as anyone hoods up, by looking at them we have no idea who it could be and could only provide their heights, builds and would be but are coping with it very well, considering. “It was a traumatic experience for them and we really accents. “We have only been open for eight weeks and so to have want anyone who saw or knows anything to come forward and let the police know.

Report by Danielle Thompson DRIVE GATE

IT'S the last straw for plastic as its use is being drastically slashed across Sefton’s leisure centres. In a bid to help tackle the environmental issue of plastic pollution, Sefton Council has announced that single use plastics will be massively reduced across it's leisure centres. While plastic will be reduced across all leisure centres, there has been a major focus on sites with catering facilities like Dunes Splash World in Southport and Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre. Items like straws and plastic cutlery are only used for a short time but take hundreds of years to decompose. This is affecting wildlife and oceans not only in Sefton, but across the world. To make Sefton’s leisure centres greener, plastic straws have been replaced with paper straws and all takeaway drinks are now served in recyclable paper cups. In addition, all plastic cutlery has been replaced with wooden alternatives and there will be moves to replace sauce sachets with paper cups. While these changes are in the pipeline, there is still more work to do to reduce plastic waste across all the centres. The council is looking in to how recycling facilities for plastic drinks bottles can be improved and is working with suppliers to find alternatives to plastic cups in vending machines.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “Plastic pollution is a major problem and as a council, we are determined to make steps to reduce plastic waste. “Not only is plastic polluting our coastline, it is causing harm to wildlife across the borough. I urge businesses across Sefton to think about using plastic alternatives and work with us to ensure that Sefton is a clean, green and beautiful borough.”

Warning as fire crews tackle dozens of grassland blazes Report by Danielle Thompson FIRE chiefs are urging residents to be on their guard after crews tackled more than a spate of grassland blazes in just the past week – shockingly, with most started deliberately. Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service took on 112 accidental and deliberate blazes between Thursday, July 5 and Monday, July 9 with at least six in the Rimrose Valley area alone. There were also grassland fires across Bootle, Waterloo, Kirkdale, Netherton, Blundellsands, Litherland plus nearby areas including Aintree, Melling, Walton, Southport and Formby. With the increased risk of spontaneous ignition to grass and woodland due to the prolonged high temperatures, residents are being asked to be extra vigilant when out in the countryside or on the coast. With open ground temperatures rising very high, there is even the risk of fires starting out of sight underground through smouldering peat, which can then spread rapidly overground in the heat. Fire chiefs believe that a staggering 78 of the fires tackles in the last week were star-

ted deliberately. Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service's arson team manager Michael Buratti said: “In the current hot weather spell there is clearly an increased risk of fires in wooded, bush and grassed areas starting either accidentally or spontaneously. “However there is also a direct link between deliberate fires and the warm temperatures due to grassland and vegetation being very dry which creates ideal conditions for a fire to develop. “This means that deliberate fires involving grass, trees and vegetation are also likely to spread very quickly. “Deliberately setting a fire is arson. These are investigated and we will be working with Merseyside Police, local authorities and partner agencies to identify offenders. “Our advice to residents is to take care when out in grassed and wooded areas, be vigilant but also report any suspicious activity to ourselves and the police immediately.” As part of its current operations to tackle grassland fires, MFRS is positioning some hosing equipment near at risk sites to ready for quick use in case of repeated fire incidents. Members of the public are asked not to

move the equipment or be aware that it is unnecessary to report their presence to us as this is part of part of current operational procedures. •If you see a fire, report it to the fire and rescue service immediately by calling 999 and give the nearest main road that the fire appliance can access. Don’t attempt to tackle fires– leave the area as quickly as possible

Restaurant owner thanks ‘wonderful’ community for support after raid From Page 1. “We opened on Saturday to show that it is business as usual and we were sent flowers and people were popping in all weekend to offer their support. “They have been lovely, the community here really is fantastic.” The police have linked the

incident to a spate of armed burglaries across Merseyside, starting on June 16. These all featured three men with their faces covered, targeting businesses late at night, often through unlocked doors as venues were closing for the day, threatening staff with knives and/or hammers and stealing cash. The businesses included

Grilla on Allerton Road, Al Dente restaurant on Lark Lane, Frankie and Benny’s at Edge Lane and the Fulwood Arms on Aigburth Road. Detective Chief Inspector Craig Sumner said: “I would appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity who may have seen anything to get in touch. “I am particular keen to speak to taxi drivers or any-

one who may have captured anything on their dashcams or saw the 4x4 vehicle driving around the area either before or after the robbery.” Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC. You can also call 101 quoting log number 0056 on July 7.

Report by Tom Martin A FORMER priest who used to be based at a Thornton church has been charged with historical sex offences against children. Francis William Simpson, 71, who served at Our Lady Queen of Peace, has been charged with seven counts of indecent assault, including two against a boy under the age of 16 and five against a boy under the age of 14. All the sex offences are alleged to have taken place between September 1, 1980 and

September 30, 1982, but he was not at the Thornton church during this time. Simpson was a member of the clergy at St Jude’s RC Church, in Worsley Mesnes, between 1980 and 1982, the dates between which the crimes are alleged to have taken place. Simpson, who lives on Knightscliffe Crescent, Shevington, denied all the offences when he appeared in a short hearing at Bolton Crown Court and he will face trial at Bolton Crown Court on November 26. He was released on conditional bail. A spokesman for the Archidiocese of Liverpool declined to issue a statement until court proceedings conclude.

Staff cuts could be on the way for borough libraries Report by Kenny Parker SEFTON Council has confirmed that it is looking at reducing the number of staff working at its libraries though it claims that overall library service will be maintained. A regular user of the Sefton libraries has contacted the Champion, however, to say he fears the library service could suffer as a result. The man, who lives outside of the borough but uses its libraries, said he had heard staffing numbers are to be reduced to 1.2 per library, meaning that just one staff member will be permanently on site with a manager overseeing five libraries at Crosby Library. a time. He said: “Knowing what a librarian does these can not do that in a day and do all the other days and what is expected of them, including jobs that they need to do such as re-shelving. all the commitments the libraries have made to It's ridiculous. “I know there are volunteers but they don't help with children's time and helping reading groups and the rest of it, as well as helping always turn up, they don't always want to do people use the computers, there is no chance anything else, and they certainly don't want to be doing jobs that librarians have been asked to that one staff member can do that. “Even two staff members, one and a manager do because it is part of the libraries' commit-

ment to this that and the other. “That leaves us in a situation where libraries are going to badly undermanned.” The library user, who is a child care worker, added: “I use it for the kids’ rhyme time which is just brilliant and the kids love to go to them. “All that learning in one place is great, and the fact that we have a library system for so long is great, but it almost looks like a concerted effort to shut it down.” A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “We are currently consulting with staff at libraries across the borough over plans to reduce the number of people working in

them. “At this moment in time no decisions have been made and while staff numbers are likely to fall, we believe our overall library provision will not be affected. “The fact this gentleman travels from outside the borough to use our facilities shows how valued they are.”

He said: “Having missing teeth can have a social and functional impact, but here at Liverpool Implant and Aesthetic Dental Spa we aim to address this for our patients by providing same-day fixed teeth.” “Many people are now aware that dental implants can replace single missing teeth in a highly successful, attractive and long-lasting way.” “However, the advancement in dental implant techniques allows replacement of all missing teeth and full dentures with All-on-4 in a single day!” The All-on-4 system is similar to many other dental implant systems; the main difference is that only four implants are required, cutting down the amount of surgery needed to fit them and the number of screws to hold the teeth in place. The All-on-4 system provides a secure base for a full arch of lower or upper teeth. Dr McGovern continued: “With dental implants the

roots of your missing teeth are replaced with the highly-specialised titanium cylinder which actually integrates with your bone and becomes a part of you! “The pressure of biting on food is transferred through the implant into your jaw, just like with your own teeth. Multiple implants are placed to distribute the biting force and allow almost natural function.” “At Liverpool Implant and Aesthetic Dental Spa our highly experienced team of dental surgeons are delighted to offer you a comprehensive consultation to discuss your dental issues and develop a customised treatment plan, just for you.” “The team are so excited about this rapidly-evolving field of advanced dentistry and see dental implants as a way to change people’s lives for the better.” • For more details call 0151 236 8280, visit, or drop into Liverpool Implant & Aesthetic Dental Spa at Brunswick Street, Liverpool, L2 0PJ.

CROSBYwill once again play host to the popular Proms in the Park event when it returns this weekend. For the eighth year in a row St Mary’s College will present its spectacular Proms in the Park music and fireworks extravaganza at its Blundell Park playing field on Little Crosby Road at 7.30pm on Saturday, July 14. The concert - supported by National Tyres and Autocare - will feature around 250 talented young musicians from the college and its preparatory school. The event will be compèred by popular BBC Radio Merseyside personality Roger Phillips, and conducted by St Mary’s Director of Music, Andrew Byers. One of the highlights of this year’s event will be a special guest appearance by acclaimed soprano Rachael Russell, a former pupil of the school. The young St Mary’s musicians will play all the old favourites from the famous Last Night of the Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall. These include Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No 1 (Land of Hope and Glory), Jerusalem and Rule Britannia, all building up to the 1812 overture firework finale. St Mary’s Principal, Mike Kennedy, said: “St Mary’s places music very high up the educational agenda, and this annual event is a wonderful showcase for the wealth of talent that exists at the school. “The concert is a rousing way to mark the end of the academic year, and per-

forming in the open air in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd is a fantastic experience which our pupils will never forget. “At the same time, it’s a very pleasant way for members of the audience to spend a summer’s evening, and we hope that as usual many of them will arrive early for a picnic before settling down to enjoy the first-class musical entertainment on offer.” Ticket prices for the concert are £17.50 for adults and £10.00 for children and students, with entrance free for youngsters under five.

CHADWICKS CARPETS Family Run Since 1976

Guests at the launch event, including Bill Esterson MP, Cllr Paul Cummins, Sefton’s Cabinet member for Adult Social Care, and Vicky Keeley, CEO Sefton Carers Centre.

Autism support group launched A NEW support group has launched for parents and carers of autistic adults in Sefton. The group is being organised with the help of the National Autistic Society and will be run by volunteers. It will meet once a month, offering information and support and advocating for local services. The venue will alternate each month between Sefton Carers Centre in Waterloo and the Life Rooms in Southport. Colette Hampson, Branches Development officer North of England and North Wales, said: “This is a really exciting project and has the potential to make a huge difference to local families. “The group is being run by volunteers who are local parents and carers of autistic adults themselves. “They will provide a space where parents and carers can drop by and meet people in similar situations, share information and ideas, and advocate for support in the community. “It’s very informal, so the person you are supporting does not need to have a formal diagnosis to

attend. “More than one in 100 people are autistic in the UK and life can be desperately difficult at times, for them and their families. But we’ve seen again and again the huge difference understanding and the right support can make.” On attending the event, Cllr Paul Cummins, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: The volunteers involved have done a great job in getting the service up and running. “I have no doubt that parents and carers of autistic adults in the borough, will really benefit from the support and advice of others who are in similar situations as themselves.” Meeting dates and times are as follows: Tuesday, July 17, 1-3pm at Sefton Carers Centre, Waterloo; Tuesday, August 21, 1-3pm at Life Rooms, Southport; Tuesday, September 18, 1-3pm at Sefton Carers Centre, Waterloo; Tuesday, October 16, 1-3pm at Life Rooms, Southport; Tuesday, November 20, 1-3pm at Sefton Carers Centre, Waterloo; Tuesday, December 18, 1-3pm at Life Rooms, Southport.

Council should act to make school road safer

Merseytravel took on board passengers’ views

I live on Woodend Avenue in Crosby and I walk my child to and from school every day with her baby sister in her pram. The road which we have to cross every day is dangerous and getting worse! I’m also scared for the St Michael’s school pipils who also cross here. It’s down Little Crosby Road at the junction where it joins onto St Michael’s Road. I’ve spoken to Sefton Council regarding traffic lights or

Just a note of thanks to Merseytravel for their adjustment of the circular bus times following the opening of Maghull North Railway station. They have amended the timetables so that the buses can meet with the trains as if they stood with the existing timetable passengers would be left waiting and then have to double up on one bus. This is most beneficial in the mornings for example as some buses on routes instead of arriving at 9.30am come at 9.15am which enables passengers to

catch their chosen train. Last bus from Maghull station has also been adjusted from 0.03am to 0.12am. Merseytravel from my experience take on board the views and concerns of their passengers. Let's hope the new Maghull North station alleviates the overcrowding at Maghull station.

PICTURE of the week

Church needs a complaints policy Having written seven letters to the Archbishop’s House, Liverpool, about four different complaints caused by a priest, looking primarily for an apology, replied communication was minimal i.e. three letters in response which lacked both answers to questions and concern for matters raised. Then, even after being granted a meeting at Archbishop’s House, the issues were not able to be addressed. In other matters of life there are complaints policies available to the public and many organisations display their policies for consumption. This is not so in the Roman Catholic church. A singular member of a congregation has no where else to go to receive fairness. Even the cardinal of Westminster ‘has no jurisdiction in the Diocese of Liverpool.’ How sad that this in-house autonomy is the status quo of a church funded by individuals whose distresses are so easily disregarded. Sheila Morrisroe, Sefton

Write a story about what life is like being 16 or 17 Are you 16 or 17 or do you have memories of life at this often challenging age? If so, you may be interested in entering a creative writing competition being run by The Children’s Society as part of our charity’s Seriously Awkward campaign. The campaign aims to improve life for vulnerable 16 and 17-year-olds by securing more sustained help for them as they move into adulthood with issues like mental health, housing and access to employment. For the competition, we are looking for fictional stories by unpublished writers of up to 2,000 words about this awkward age, with categories for both young people aged 16-25 and adults aged 26 and over. Whether you are an aspiring writer or have never before written, why not think about what life can be like for 16 and 17-year-olds and craft your own story? The prospect of adulthood and greater independence can be both exciting and terrifying. For the most vulnerable young people this emotional rollercoaster can come with significant risks including child sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, substance misuse and mental health problems. Writing experts will judge the competition, and the winners will be offered expert advice and feedback by top literary agencies. Your story can highlight the ups and downs of this age, be in any fiction genre and be written from any perspective. So if you’re feeling inspired, please visit to find out more .

Our armed forces keep democracy safe and we should support them

Many soldiers come back from wars with mental health problems

Re: Letters on Miltary School. In 1938 British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain argued against going to war with Nazi Germany ‘because of a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing.’ It seems rather ironic to me that any individual, having learned the lessons of 1939-1945 could seriously use such a phrase as an argument against military recruitment. Contrary to what was claimed, children are not taught that war is a form of ‘exciting recreation.’ They are taught the consequences of appeasement and the harsh reality of modern warfare. The latter obviously proves that bravery still has much to do with modern soldiery.

WHEN we look at the history of the past fifteen years, particularly what's taken place in the Middle East I find it hard to believe the comments that our soldiers ought to be a source of pride for our communities and that military training helps people with mental health issues. Visit any homeless shelter or speak to the countless homeless people, who because of a government imposed austerity, now dot our streets and you will find that a high percentage of our homeless are ex soldiers. Due to our unnecessary, immoral and illegal wars that we have involved ourselves with, around 10% of all our soldiers come home suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and often limbless. After the horrendous events they've witnessed

Yes, technology is gaining increasing importance, but we still need soldiers to control the drones and prevent the enemy from causing damage with theirs. I am glad we live in a democracy in which we can express our opposing views. If we had no armed forces, our islands would be open to attack from any future dictator wishing to impose his or her tyranny on us Our soldiers help to keep democracy safe and we should celebrate and support them for it. This is not a euphemism, it is a fact. LDG, Maghull.

and been part of they simply can't cope and end up homeless. As to the idea that our soldiers keep the peace and make us safe may I point out that MI5 informed Blair that if he invaded Iraq it would increase the risk of terrorism in this country? The invasion by our country, alongside America, led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq and for this we ought to be deeply ashamed. That war was considered illegal by the UN. It totally destroyed this country's moral reputation and led directly to the rise of ISIS and a huge civil war in neighbouring Syria. Mark Holt, Merseyside Stop The War Coalition

Youngsters find out about life on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal YOUNGSTERS from primary schools in Maghull and surrounding districts have been learning about life on the Leeds – Liverpool canal through a number of education workshops. Eight primary schools from Maghull, Lydiate and Aintree took part in the initiative, which was supported by Maghull Town Council, Lydiate Parish Council and Aintree Parish Council, who helped fund the event. Workshops were organised by MADCOS, Maghull and District Community Schools and the scheme was for pupils from Reception to Year 5. The Canal River Trust, brought along their heritage boat, called George, which was used as a floating classroom. The young people learnt when the Leeds - Liverpool canal was built, they also found out about George’s journey and Bob the Buffer taught them about rope-work and knotwork. Youngsters also learnt about Brightwork, which is the dying

Amanda Bennett, the administrator for MADCOS, who organised the event, said: “The workshops were excellent. The children on the boat learnt about the canal and it brought it to life for them.” Danny MacAreavy, headteacher at St John Bosco Catholic Primary School in Maghull said: “The workshops are a fantastic opportunity for learning outside the classroom.

St John Bosco finish third in LFC tournament CHILDREN from year five and four at St John Bosco Catholic primary in Maghull competed in the LFC Foundation Premier League Primary Stars Tournament on Wednesday, June 20 and came third. Seven teams from Merseyside took part and headteacher at the school, Danny MacAreavy, said “the standard of football was excellent”. The children from Maghull played six games, winning three, drawing one and narrowly losing two games to the eventual winners St Margaret Mary's from Kirkby. Danny commented: “The children were amazing and played some of the best passing football to eventually come a very respectable third. “They then came back to school, had lunch, and some of them went to Maghull Cricket Club for an afternoon of cricket. “What a fantastic day and not a school book in sight!”

FIRST my apology for the non-appearance of my 'Dog' column last week. It wasn’t my fault - honest. In fact I went down to Norfolk for a two-week cruise on my trusty old cruiser, ‘Manxman’ - but through no fault of my own I was marooned for a further week. I can’t say I didn’t enjoy my extra few days afloat, but there was nothing whatever I could do about the transport situation to get me home. Still. on my first day back last week I switched on the TV to look in on the ‘Daily Politics’ and since it was Wednesday there was the usual extended version covering Prime Minister's Questions. Now what was unusual about that was that Jeremy Corbyn chose as his principal subject for attack, not as is normal these days, about either the state of the NHS or our problems with Brexit - but on a subject close to my heart buses! Basically the would-be PM was asking the present incumbent of the job, Theresa May, what she had to say about the falling numbers of folk using the buses and the fact that bus fares have risen considerably higher than inflation. Ms May never really seemed to get to grips with this, waffling on about how local councils have it in their power to provide services where they are necessary -obviously inviting a retort that her Government had cut the amount of money said councils have to spend. But in fact, both of our two major political party's leaders seemed generally to be missing the point and Corbyn missing a great opportunity. Unless I missed it, he didn't give a real solution to this problem either. He didn’t even suggest ‘bringing the buses back into public ownership’ (it used to be called Clause Four, or ‘nationalisation’). He didn’t really go into in any detail at all about the fact that many rural communities are now effectively cut off from anywhere else for those without access to a motor car. Indeed, he seemed to be implying that the problem was that those unfortunate people had stopped using the buses because they couldn’t afford the high fares. Trouble is, that is not the point. The obvious reason is that most folk now have a motor vehicle. In my own neck of the woods the bus network has shrunk over the course of the years, but oddly it is on my sojourns to Norfolk that I have noticed this most. Just a few years ago I could travel to Norwich and on to the town of Wroxham by train from Liverpool. And from there to where Manxman was then moored there was a bus every hour (it ran from Norwich to Great Yarmouth.) The last time I tried to get to Potter Heigham (where the boat yard was), I found this bus had been withdrawn totally. The only way I might be able to get to this village was to use the school bus (at least if ‘ordinary ’ passengers were allowed on) but it would only take me to Potter Heigham if a school child who was aboard wanted to go there! None did - so I had to walk the last two miles. And throughout rural Norfolk and Suffolk the problem is the same. On my last holiday evening I walked the dogs from the staithe at which we were moored into the picturesque village of Barton. There was a lovely wooden bus shelter near the village green, and out of interest, I popped into have a look at the timetable. Apparently some enterprising locals have arranged a minibus which connects with a real bus service some distance away. It was a bit difficult to work out what and when but basically I think that the only service each weekday would give you two hours in town to do your shopping - and ‘tough’ if you missed the bus back. It would be a taxi ride then I suppose for the poor soul who couldn't afford the bus service in the first place. The only answer is for bus services to remote communities to be subsidised. I think central government should foot the bill. But if not, then yes, local councils must. Because if not, our sleepy very rural villages will become havens only for two or three car families with no local shops or pubs. If they haven’t already.

114 landings at hospital helipad in its first year

HELP Appeal chief executive Robert Bertram, with Mark Evans from the North West Air Ambulance Charity and Steve Warburton, chief executive of Aintree University Hospital.

A £1million helipad at Aintree University Hospital has seen 114 landings in its first year. The helipad, which was funded by the HELP Appeal and received its first patients on July 3, 2017, means it now takes a matter of seconds to transfer some of the region’s most seriously ill patients to the hospital’s Major Trauma Centre, which is located adjacent to the helipad. Clinical teams work with neuro specialists from the Walton Centre to give patients seamless care. These patients are transported by the North West Air Ambulance service and the most common arrivals are people who have been involved in road traffic accidents. Previously, patients arriving by air ambulance had to be collected from a nearby playing field before being transported to the hospital by road ambulance, which could take up to 30 minutes. Simon Scott, clinical director for major trauma at Aintree, said: “The helipad has made a huge

difference to our trauma patients. “These are people who are seriously injured and every second counts. Being able to minimise the transfer time to hospital means we can get to work treating them more quickly and, as a result, get better outcomes for patients.” Robert Bertram, chief executive of the HELP Appeal, said: “One year on and we are delighted that the helipad is having such a positive impact – that’s why the HELP Appeal covered the entire cost, as we knew the difference it would make to patients who are critically ill. It is a lifesaver.” Heather Arrowsmith, CEO at the North West Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Every second counts in matters of life-threatening injuries. “Helipads like this one allow our crew to significantly reduce patient transfer times and, alongside our partners at Aintree University Hospital, ultimately save more lives across the North West.”

Diane Woodall’s display based on The Greatest Showman (left) and a lollipop man (right)

Heroes feature at first ever scarecrow festival HEROES both real and imagined are among a host ofcharacters that made an appearance in the first Maghull and Lydiate Scarecrow Festival. Rivalling any of the similar festivals in the region, more than 100 scarecrows were made including by local schools which also relished the chance to get involved. Creations include Liverpool FC's Mohammed Salah, Real Madrid CF's Cristiano Ronaldo, Spiderman, Superman, pirates, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, along with more ordinary characters such as alollipop man and builder. Hazel Gatward, an administrator on the Maghull Community Facebook page, who organised the event, said she was blown away by how enthusiastically the community has followed her lead. She said: “I came up with this idea as a great way to get the community involved in something together. “The response has way exceeded my expectations.The local schools have joined in and the feedback I have had is that the children have loved it! “We have well over 100 scarecrows locally. A lot of imagination has been shown. It would be impossible for me to single any one out as they are all fabulous.”

Meanwhile Chris Woodall says his mum Diane, who lives with his dadNigel on Moorhey Road, Maghull, deserves aspecial mention for putting a lot of effort into her three highly detailedscarecrow creations based on the recent musical The Greatest Showman - circus impresario PT Barnum and acircus tiger, the bearded lady and the ring girl. Chris says: “Me, my family and friends are proud of my mum, as amongst her very busy life (involving charity work, respite fostering, work with the local guide group and her occupation teaching in a special needs school) she has made time for this, for the community to enjoy. “My mum is constantly striving towards helping others and staying involved lots of things. “During the morning, day and afternoon, parents and children are always pointing and commenting on the scarecrows, pulling up in their cars, taking photographs of them and even having children stood by the scarecrows getting their photographs.” A scarecrow of a milkman made by a staff member at Mortons Dairies was stolen from outside the dairy ’’s gate on Kenyon’s Lane. The theft by two males on scrambler bikes was caught on camera by a passing motorist. Theowner of the dairy has not sought to involve police.

MP in call for more support for small firms to ‘prevent another Carillon’

Visit us @ ● 21

Hillsborough police commander manslaughter trial adjourned THE trial of the Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield, who is accused of the manslaughter of 95 Liverpool fans, has been adjourned until January 14. The trial of the 73-year-old Duckenfield had been listed to start on September 10. It was confirmed that

the former chief superintendent would be prosecuted after a decision by a High Court judge at Preston Crown Court. An 18-year-old 'stay' on his prosecution had to be lifted by the judge, Sir Peter Openshaw, for this to happen. A total of 96 Liverpool fans were

Former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary Graham Mackrell is also charged with health and safety, and safety at sports grounds offences. Mr Duckenfield and Mr Mackrell will be entering their pleas at a pre-trial hearing in Preston, which has been provisionally set for January 14.


Report by Tom Martin CALLS are being made to better support smaller housebuilders – to ‘prevent another Carillon.’ With thousands of homes set to be built across his constituency over the next 15 years, the Sefton cenral and Formby MP and Shadow Business Minister Bill Esterson said in a Commons statement that he wanted to see better support for smaller firms, shorter supply chains and the development of skills and technology, including apprenticeships. After appearing in the Commons to respond to the Government announcement on a new “sector deal” for construction, Mr Esterson said: “Construction is going to be a massive part of the economy in the City MP Bill Esterson. Region over the next 15 years, providing highly paid skilled jobs and boosting economic growth. “We want to see an investment in technology which leads to greener, more energy-efficient homes and good-quality apprenticeships for our young people.” In his Commons statement, Mr Esterson accused the government of not doing enough to prevent “another Carillion” referring to the giant construction firm which collapsed owing suppliers and workers £2bn: “The collapse of Carillion was caused by the Government's own lack of oversight so what assurances will the Minister give to the sector that there will be no more Carillions, that suppliers and workers can have confidence that Government will support them on Government-funded contracts? “What in this deal will address the issue of late payments and retentions which the Carillion fiasco highlighted with 30,000 suppliers owed £2bn?” The Govermment statement on its ‘sector deal’ for construction announced plans to improve the use of AI and technology in construction to which Mr Esterson commented: “What is in the deal to protect smaller businesses for whom accessing investment in technology is likely to be such a challenge?” The construction industry had a turnover of £370bn in 2016 with 3.1m people employed. It is thought that £600bn will be invested in infrastructure both private and public in the next 10 years. Mr Esterson added: “There appears to be nothing to tackle the problems endemic to public sector construction procurement. “The commitments within this sector deal on productivity and the speed of building are welcome but they need to be matched by a significant increase in Government investment in infrastructure and housebuilding projects. That's how we can properly support the construction industry. “The TUC has shown that the £31bn through the national productivity investment fund increases public investment to £2.9% of GDP whereas the average spent by leading industrial nations in the OECD is higher at 3.5%. “The rhetoric in here about skills and technical education is very welcome but what assurances can be given that those skills be developed to enable to radical transformation of construction that this country desperately needs?” Mr Esterson said construction workers must be given more protection and that the Government's handling of Brexit was putting investment in infrastructure at risk: “There are very great concerns about the exploitation of construction workers often by the use of bogus self employment, the abuses of human rights, risks to the safety of too many workers through the behaviour of some unscrupulous employers, so what are the Government's plans to protect workers?

The dollshouse (above, and inside it, right) which was stolen while its owner Margaret Reece was away for treatment

Treasured heirloom stolen A STUNNING handmade dollshouse, which was a treasured family heirloom, has been stolen from a grandmother-of-five while she was ill. Callum Wyatt, 34, from Southport, is making an emotional appeal after his grandmother Margaret Reece's metre-high and metre-wide dollshouse was stolen from her home in Wavertree earlier this month while she was away from the house for medical treatment. He said that the front window was pulled out of its frame by a crowbar and the huge dollshouse was taken from the property, which would have been 'heavy enough to need at least three people to carry it' as well as its miniature figurines and furniture, which he believes were placed inside a suitcase, which was also stolen from her house at the same time. The dolls house, which was made by his grandfather over the course of seven years, is unique and easily recognisable. It was made by hand, with individual working lights, tapestries, wallpaper, hand-carved spindles and covered in more than 2,000 indi-

vidually placed miniature clay bricks. It was made for Margaret by her husband Stanley as a 'huge romantic gesture' as she loves dollshouses – and took no less than seven long years for him to complete. It is especially heart-breaking for the family as Stanley passed away eight years ago – and Margaret is currently very ill with a life-limiting condition. The family have been unable to tell her that the item has been stolen as they are afraid of upsetting her while she is so ill. The heartless thieves also took a TV cabinet, which was made to look like a doll's house as well. Callum said: “The dollshouse was truly one of a kind. My nan has had the most sentimental possession stolen from her home while she is ill and I'm trying everything to get this back for her before it's too late. Her condition is deteriorating everyday and I am pleading for readers to help us – even if they know just the smallest bit of information it could help the police to reunite us with the house, which means so much to the family.

Margaret and Stanley Reece

“Inside the dollshouse are little tapestries loving handcrafted by my nan, which were embroidered with their initials, M and R. “Also stolen was the little TV cabinet house that my grandad made – and we are hoping that finding this could lead us to the dollshouse. If you know anything, please help us.” Call the police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously at or by calling 0800 555111.

Iceland, who have stores across Sefton, have this month begun a trial that will see single use plastic carrier bags at its tills replaced with paper bags and reusable plastic bags made from post-consumer waste. They are the only supermarket currently trialling alternative carrier bags, following the retailer’s pledge in January to eliminate plastic packaging from all its own label products by the end of 2023.

Brandreth had audience ‘laughing from the start’

Orchestra stand for applause, William and Juan bow

Gershwin classic among highlights of concert CROSBY Symphony Orchestra delivered a sparkling and passionate performance on Sunday afternoon July 1 in Philharmonic Hall Liverpool. An appreciative audience enjoyed a captivating performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Piano soloist William Bracken wowed the audience with his virtuosic playing which, in keeping with the spirit of the original included stunning improvisation in the solo parts of the piece. There was an east-west theme in the first half of the concert as the orchestra played the suite from

Bernstein’s score for the 1954 film On the Waterfront with its depiction of corruption and violence in the docks of Hoboken, New Jersey, underpinned in the music with angular rhythms and dissonant clashes. There was also a love theme reminiscent of West Side Story. This was contrasted in the second half with the lush harmonies and sweeping melodies of Rachmaninov’s Symphony number 3 all directed by Spanish conductor Juan Ortuno. The Concert raised an estimated £700 for local charities.

The Champion’s Ron Ellis and Ellen Campbell with Michele Brown and Gyles Brandreth

Break A Leg – Gyles Brandreth The Atkinson Southport Review and interview by Ron Ellis and Ellen Campbell GYLES Brandreth has one of the best known faces on TV with his regular appearances on The One Show, Sunday Brunch, etc. and he is equally famous on radio for the long running Just a Minute which he hosted for the first time recently when 94 year old quizmaster, Nicholas Parsons, took his first day off sick for 50 years. Seventy this year, a quarter of a century has passed since Gyles was the speaker at the Champion’s Literary Lunch at the Scarisbrick Hotel but his sparkle and delivery is as infectious as ever and had the audience laughing from the start. This was one of 19 dates to promote his new book, Break a Leg, a dictionary of theatrical quotations. Looking around the audience when he bounced onto the stage, he said he knew he was in the right place and proudly announced he was now the voice-over for Tena incontinence pads. He then proceeded to give us a version of Noel Coward’s Don’t Put Your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs. Worthington, which The Master himself would have been proud of,

followed by an hour of non-stop, often indiscreet, gossip about various singers and actors. “I used to like The Benny Hill Show in its day, the way he ran around smirking, pretending to touch up the ladies. Of course he would be arrested now.” Politicians didn’t escape. (Gyles was once M.P. for Chester). “I hated the constituents with a vehemence and, at the next election I realised they felt the same about me.” The second half was given over to the audience to ask questions and Gyles was able to reassure one anxious man that he was certainly not after Nicholas Parson’s job. He also recited a risqué poem by Ronnie Barker that had the audience shouting along. You never knew what might be coming next. Maybe he would break into a dance. After the show, he spent over half an hour signing copies of his book for the long queue of fans in the foyer before we adjourned to the Vincent Hotel for a late night meal and he and his wife, Michele, spoke about their life together. The Brandreths are, in fact, a two-handed team. Break a Leg was actually compiled by Michele who is herself a writer. Gyles’s contribution was the introduction. “We’re appearing at the Edinburgh Festival all through August, promoting the book, so this is like a trial run to judge the

audience reaction,” explained Gyles, who has won five-star awards at previous Edinburgh Festivals. Michele accompanies him on the tour, sitting in the wings making careful notes of which jokes go best and what adjustments might be made to improve it. “We play about with the script as we go along, fine tuning it until we feel we’ve got it right.” The couple have three children and seven grandchildren. Their son, Benet, is a Q.C. and has just completed his second novel, The Assassin of Verona, featuring William Shakespeare as the hero. Daughter Saethryd is also a writer and her sister, Aphra is a local councillor. The couple see a lot of their family as they all live reasonably close together around Barnes in South London. “Money is what brings your grandchildren close to you,” said Gyles, halfjokingly. The couple are travelling round the country by train, not easy in the postBeeching area, and stay in guest houses along the way. just as if they were on holiday, but they are never out of touch with what is happening in the world. Gyles is a fervent Twitter poster, always in the limelight. A great trouper. Star Rating 8 out of 10. A thoroughly entertaining, laugh a minute show.

You tend to forget things that run smoothly... THE OTHER night a couple of us went for a meal in Southport where the service wasn’t great – so much so that one poor bloke actually started bellowing rather loudly, in a fashion not at all inspired by Jeremy Clarkson, about his lack of freshly cooked steak. I’ve had many more evenings out that’ve run more successfully, but I know already that it’ll be this one, and the one at the Yorkshire pub where a cold ciabatta arrived covered in hair and the Aberystwyth café where what arrived wasn’t even close to what we’d ordered, that I remember when I’m old and grey. It’s weird – but you tend to forget things that run smoothly. So maybe it’s not a good thing that I have such vivid memories of the old Suzuki Swift – and particularly, its gofaster Sport sibling. Long-time Life On Cars readers will know that I’ve long had a soft spot for this petite Oriental offering precisely because it feels like a supermini from the old school – what it lacked in gadgets it more than made up for with its revvy engines, scrabbly handling and general sense of not being an ounce heavier or an inch wider than it needed to be.


Suzuki has made its Swift better - but not as much fun

Even in non-Sport form I had a real fondness for the 2005-generation model and for its 2011 successor, so I was genuinely excited when I was chucked the keys to the latest version. Having now spent a weekend with the S-ZT model I can report that it’s much better than the outgoing car – and bizarrely, slightly worse. I am, for instance, a big fan of the three-cylinder BoosterJet one-litre petrol engine beneath its bonnet, which might only have 109bhp to hand but it uses a turbocharger and an insatiable appetite for revs to really make the most of it. It only weighs 925kg too – 200 less than an EcoBoost Fiesta – so it always manages to feel sprightly heading away from the lights. I like how roomy it is inside too,

particularly in the back, and how much more refined it feels on the move, particularly on motorways. I But – and I know this will sound like the moanings of that malcontent bloke who’s missed out on his dinner – it feels as though in making it ever more refined Suzuki’s somehow managed to engineer a lot of the fun out. Chuck it into a corner and there’s plenty of grip, and it’ll go where you want it to, but the sense of mischief the old models had is gone. It’s as though the Swift has reached the point the Golf did 20 years ago – it’s a thoroughly grownup car that you really can’t knock, but maybe, it’s got a bit sensible in its old age. I am prepared, of course, to reserve all judgement until I’ve tried the latest Swift Sport, though. Watch this space…

Maghull suffer 7 wicket defeat to table toppers IN the Second Division Maghull were beaten by seven wickets at home against table toppers Northop Hall. Maghull chose to bat with Anthony Molloy senior 59 and Josh Mahoney 42 scoring the majority of the 176 total, with Joshua Andrady 4-14 and Daniel Clubbe 4-36 taking the bulk of the wickets to fall. In reply, an unbeaten 83 from opener James Hurlin paved the way for the visitors to wrap up victory on 178-3. Southport Trinity recorded a four wicket win at bottom placed Alder, the hosts chose to bat and slipped from 54-1 to 112 all out, thanks to a fine spell of bowling from Mike Sears 4-19 and Liam Simms 4-24 In reply, Wim Van Der Walt steadied the nerves for the visitors with 42 before they were eventually taken to victory on 113-6 by Luke Falkiner 18* and Simms 13*.

S&B stay top of First Division

FIRST Division leaders Southport & Birkdale recorded a 90 run win at Newton le Willows, the visitors chose to bat first and thanks to a collective effort from Harry May 36, Isaac Lea 34, Adam Burton 33* and Charlie Byrne 26 were able to declare on 191-8, with Matthew Parkinson taking 3-60. In reply, skipper Chris Firth 13.3-3-55-8 and Gary Keedy 12-6-12-2 then spun the hosts out for just 101 to seal victory with Parkinson unbeaten on 21*. Fleetwood Hesketh recorded a 51 run home win against Prestatyn, the hosts were put in to bat and recovered from 32-4 to 223 all out, thanks in the main to a 92 ball 93 from Andrew Watts, 35 from Gavin Dickenson and 24 each from Geeth Malinda and skipper Scott Rimmer, with Peter Cassidy taking 5-75 with the ball. In reply, Ryan Westwell top scored with 67 but the rest fell in frequent fashion as they were dismissed for 172, thanks to a fine spell of bowling from Dickenson 8-66 and Ryan Thomas 2-25.

This weekend’s local LDCC cricket fixture’s (1pm start): Bootle v Rainford, Colwyn Bay v Ormskirk, Formby v Leigh, New Brighton v Northern, Birkenhead Park v Burscough, Liverpool v Ainsdale, Sefton Park v Fleetwood Hesketh, Southport & Birkdale v Wigan, Northop Hall v Hightown St Mary’s, Southport Trinity v Spring View and Sutton v Maghull.

Bailey stars with bat and ball as Northern beat Bootle to stay second THINGS are hotting up in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division as the recent long spell of high temperatures continue off the pitch. Northern remain five points behind leaders Ormskirk after a six wicket home win against fourth placed Bootle. There is an old saying in cricketing circles that if you want to control a match then you must bat first. Firwood Bootle captain, Craig Prince, did exactly that at Moor Park last Saturday but at no stage was his team in charge of proceedings and they were, in the end, soundly beaten by their hosts and local rivals Northern. Prince himself was caught at slip off the bowling of Tom Bailey for a third ball duck and thereafter the highest partnership of the innings was the 40 raised by Vishal Tripathi and Michael Farrell for the 2nd wicket. The former was clean bowled by Tom Sephton for 40, unadvisedly attempting to cut a ball which pitched on middle stump, and although Danny Davies made a careful 50 not out from 102 balls eight visiting batsmen perished in single figures as Bootle were dismissed for a wholly inadequate 145 after fifty-three overs. Will Purser encouragingly captured the early wickets of Tom Jones and Chris Brownlow with only 20 scored before being forced off the field with a hamstring strain in the eighth over to add to his side’s injury woes. Northern were now on easy street as solid efforts from Liam Grey (50), Bailey (33 not out), Justin Snow (26 not out) and Chris Laker (24) eased them to victory by 6 wickets after 32 overs, Bootle being left to watch their 2018 Premier League title hopes receding rapidly over the horizon. Premier Division leaders Ormskirk made it six consecutive wins with 28 run home victory over Lytham, the hosts elected to bat and thanks to Andy Baybutt 83, Luke Platt 52, Ryan Maddock 28 and 5 from John Armstrong who was playing his 400th league appearance for the club, were able to declare on 213-8, with Anthony Mulligan taking 3-43. In reply, Tom Jefferson 78 and Matthew Taaffe 43 helped the visitors to 145-2 before

a dramatic collapse led by spinner Tom Hartley 769 saw Lytham bowled out for 185. Third placed Formby continued their recent inconsistent spell of results with a four wicket defeat at struggling Rainford, the visitors were put in to bat and thanks to 5-37 from John Dotters and 3-20 from Danny Houghton were dismissed for just 116. In reply, Matthew White 30 and skipper David Snellgrove 28 then helped the host to 120-6 to wrap up a much needed victory for the hosts

● Things got no better the following morning for Firwood Bootle when they were in action bright and early at 10am against Ormskirk in the Vitality National Club T20 knockout. Gary Knight hit 70 not out in the home side’s total of 151-4 and Bootle were limited to 124-9 in reply to lose by 27 runs, Farrell top scoring with an unbeaten 43. On Saturday next Bootle resume Premier League duty with a match against Rainford at Wadham Road.

Robinson appointed Five new signings for Bucks as player manager at CoL they start pre-season with a draw CITY of Liverpool FC have appointed Craig Robinson as player manager after the departure of Simon Burton. A statement on the club website said: “Craig brings with him a wealth of experience throughout the Non-League pyramid and the respect of everyone at the club; from the tea ladies to the players, and supporters to the volunteers and directors.” Speaking on his appointment, Craig said: “I wasn’t looking for a role in management at present as I still feel I have got at least one good season left in me on the pitch. “But once I got approached I spoke to the squad and they have given me total support and along with the sup-

port of the directors, I felt it was too good an opportunity to turn down. “I’m honoured to be given the chance to manage this great club in my home city with so much potential and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the job and doing my best.” On behalf of the board of directors, chairman Paul Manning said: “We always wanted continuity, and Craig is a good lad and very humble, but we have seen his will to win on the pitch and the respect that he commands in football and we know that he has the total support of the playing squad, so we are very confident that we have made the right choice.”

BOOTLE kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 1-1 draw against Pilkingtons on Saturday, writes Connor O’Neill. After a goalless first-half, the hosts opened the scoring midway through the second period with their first meaningful attack. A long ball into the Bootle box caused hesitation between Ryan Jones and Joel Powell with Deklan Hill capitalising to turn the ball home from close-range. Chances came and went for Phil Stafford's side before Carl Peers drew them level with five minutes remaining when he headed Ste Milne’s cross home. While action returned on the pitch on Saturday afternoon, it’s also been a busy time for the club off the pitch in the last week

with the Bucks announcing five new signings and seven re-signings. Three of Stafford’s five new additions have joined the Bucks from AFC Liverpool. First up to be announced on Thursday evening was forward Elliott Nevitt, before the club confirmed the capture of defender Lee McConchie an hour later. Zach Hardacre then completed the hat-trick of ex AFC lads when he was confirmed as a Bootle player on Sunday evening. Also joining the club are midfielders Jamie Colebourn and Ben Jago. Colebourn joins the Bucks from Cammel Laird 1907 while Jago arrives from Radcliffe FC having also previously played in the Football League for Tranmere Rovers and the Scottish second division for Annan Athletic.

In addition, the club has also confirmed that seven of last seasons squad have put pen to paper for the new season. Ryan Jones, Joel Powell, Kieran Haligan, Connor Millington, Carl Peers, Stephen Milne and Ryan Cox will all be wearing Bootle blue next season. Finally, to cap off a hectic seven days for the Bucks, their FA Cup and Vase opponents were confirmed on Friday afternoon. In the FA Cup, a trip to Barnsley to take on Penistone Church on Saturday, 11 August awaits for Phil Stafford’s side. Before the Bucks head to fellow Hallmark Security Premier Division side, Congleton Town, in the First Qualifying round of the Buildabase FA Vase on Saturday, September 1.

JULY 10, 1940 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; OCTOBER 31, 1940


APRIL 1, 1918

WHEN AIR POWER CAME OF AGE The Royal Air Force was formed as a separate Service, independent of the British Army and Royal Navy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first time that any country had formed an entirely separate and independent air force. The new Service had its own ministry under a secretary of state for air. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;newâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; RAF was the most powerful air force in the world with more than 290,000 personnel and nearly 23,000 aircraft, and fought effectively from April 1 1918 over the Western Front in support of ground forces. General Jan Christian Smuts said of Air Power: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is absolutely no limit to the scale of its future independent war use.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

MARCH 5, 1936

SPITFIRE: FIGHTER AIRCRAFT SUPREME The prototype flew for the first time on March 5, 1936, although the first Mk I was not delivered to 19 Squadron at RAF Duxford until August 4, 1938. Designed by Reginald Joseph Mitchell, the Spitfire became one of the most successful fighter aircraft ever built. By September 1939, ten Spitfire squadrons were operational, and 19 were ready to engage the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain. The Spitfire was championed as the most effective fighter during this period. The RAF flew its last operational Spitfire (PR.Mk XIX) sortie over Malaya, on April 1, 1954, reconnoitring rebel positions.









The Battle of Britain ranks alongside the Battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo as one of the most significant in British History. Without the radar scientists; WAAFs and airmen; volunteers of the Royal Observer Corps; plotters; tellers; and controllers; telephone engineers; production workers in our aircraft factories; airfield ground crews and the Commanders, the valour of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Fewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would not have achieved their mission. The victory combined organisational mastery, governmental support, technological innovation, and industrial capacity with the bravery, commitment and skill of our young pilots.

Established March 1 1965, the team’s first official display took place May 6 1965 at RAF Little Rissington for the press. The first public air display was staged May 9 at the French Air Force base at Clermont Ferrand. But the first air show in the UK was May 15 at the Biggin Hill International Air Fair, Kent. During the first season the Reds flew 65 displays in Britain and Europe and was awarded the Britannia Trophy in recognition of its outstanding contribution to British prestige in the field of aviation.

An RAF Tornado GR4 has been painted in the iconic Gulf War ‘desert pink’ paint scheme to honour the aircraft type’s almost continuous operational service since the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. The ‘desert pink’ Tornado, number ZG750, is based at RAF Lossiemouth with XV(R) Squadron, and saw active service during Operation Granby, the UK’s codename for the Gulf War. The aircraft carries 11 battle honours on its tail, including Operation Granby, Telic, Herrick, Ellamy and Shader. This twoseat, day or night, all-weather attack aircraft has been in service with the RAF since 1979.

JULY 1, 2008

MULTI-ROLE TYPHOON FIRST Typhoon FGR4 became the first RAF fast jet to be declared multi-role capable. Designed as a swing-role combat aircraft, Typhoon is capable of completing contrasting tasks in a single sortie. Its optimised airframe, powerful engines and advanced flight control system confer excellent agility at all speeds. Typhoon aircraft and their pilots, provide Quick Reaction Alert UK air defence capability around the clock, with a permanent detachment of QRA aircraft positioned in the Falklands.

Bill then recalled “A Czechoslovakian called Yan Bozdiek who escaped his country after Germany took over. He travelled to France, where he helped with the French resistance and rescued an Alsatian from a farmhouse then escaped to England and joined up to the RAF, alongside his dog. “The dog went everywhere with him, including his flying. They were once shot down over the Mediterranean and the dog was slightly injured, with one bent ear after that. “When they had been picked up and were back in Liverpool, they were walking along Castle Street and the dog started barking – they then found a woman and child still alive in ruins left from a bomb raid! After the war ended, the pair returned to Czechoslovakia. Yan soon heard that the Russians were rounding up all former ‘enemy’ fighters. He once again fled the country but was seen by a guard trying to cross the border. His dog saved him by fighting off the guard then chasing after him and catching him up. They returned to England and Yan became an RAF instructor at RAF Dalcross – where I met him and the dog! I knew absolutely nothing of any of this until his story was serialised in the Daily Mail many years later and his dog, which died in 1953, was awarded the Dickin Medal.

A CADET from Crosby has overcome more than 7,500 others to be named the ‘highest performing’ in the UK at a prestigious national awards ceremony. Charlotte Apel, 19, was presented with the Sir John Thomson Memorial Sword at the Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC) Awards, which took place at RAF College Cranwell, in Lincolnshire. CWO Apel, from Merchant Taylors’ Combined Cadet Force, battled it out against 7,500 cadets from across the RAF’s 230 cadet units, to be named the winner and as part of the prize she will be invited to Buckingham Palace for lunch with the Queen. The Sir John Thomson Memorial Sword commemorates the life of Air Chief Marshal, Sir John Thomson and is awarded each year to the

highest performing CCF cadet in the UK. This is the first time the coveted title has been won by a Merchant Taylors’ pupil and Charlotte was one of only five people to be called for interview following the nominations last November. As part of the award win, she will be leading the cadet parade at the Shuttleworth Air Show, in July, where she will be presented with the sword officially by Lady Thomson, the wife of the late Sir John Thomson. Charlotte, who hopes to join the University Air Squadron at Lancaster University, after completing her A-Levels, said: “I was so surprised and honoured when they called out my name and I am still in a state of shock at winning. This award is the pinnacle of success for a cadet and it is incredible to be ending my CCF career with Merchant Taylors

on such a high. “I’d like to to thank Ma’am Dipple, who is the head of the RAF cadet contingent at the school and nominated me for the award. She really supported me with all the preparation leading up to it and I couldn’t have done it without her.” ~CWT<TaRWP]cCPh[^ab{2^\QX]TS2PSTc{b5^aRT has over 260 cadets, who in addition to weekly training have the opportunity to attend a variety of camps and courses, both here in the UK and overseas. A central aim of the CCF is to develop leadership and teamwork skills among cadets.

A SENIOR Aircraftman who hails from West Lancashire will fulfil his childhood dream this summer... flying in the back seat with the world-famous Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows. Andrew Brooks is one of a ten-strong team of engineers known as the ‘Circus Blues’, who has been assigned to a specific aircraft and pilot throughout the 2018 display season. He will travel as a passenger in one of the Red Arrows’ two-seat Hawk aircraft in transit flights to over 80 display venues throughout the UK and Europe - flying at speeds of more than 350mph. Once his aircraft arrives at each display’s operating base, Andrew is responsible for servicing the aircraft before it can fly again. Andrew was educated in West Lancashire, attending Cobbs Brow Primary School and

Lathom High School before completing a BTEC National Diploma in Sports Coaching, Development and Fitness at Skelmersdale College. He said: “Being selected for 2018 Circus was amazing. When it was announced I couldn’t believe it, to have the opportunity to fly in the back seat of the Red Arrows Hawk T1 is an amazing experience and something I never thought I would do this early in my RAF career.” As Circus 4, Andrew has been paired with Red 4, Flight Lieutenant Chris Lyndon-Smith. Andrew has worked on Chinook helicopters

and has completed detachments to the Middle East and spent time on light aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious during his time at RAF Odiham. Officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows showcase the excellence of the RAF and represent the United Kingdom both at home and overseas. The team consists of nine display pilots and more than 100 support personnel and technicians. Each of the pilots have previous fast jet operational experience flying the Tornado or the Typhoon; the aircraft that enable the RAF to secure the skies and protect the nation and it’s interests, 365-days a year. One of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, the Red Arrows had completed 4,660 displays, in 57 countries, by the end of 2017. Flying Hawk jets, the team is based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

LOCAL INTEREST A MAN from Maghull is among a team of mechanical engineers from the Royal Air Force who were selected to carry the RAF 100 Baton across the country to celebrate the service’s centenary. They carried the baton with them as they attempted to complete the ‘three peaks’ challenge in 24 hours for charity. Tom Carr, 22, was among a team of ten who took on the challenge, climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowden. The specially designed baton set off on a journey around the UK and abroad on April 1 and was carried by a host of different volunteers who all have a connection to the RAF, and visited 100 sites around the UK associated with the service. The team have raised money for the four main RAF charities, which are: The RAF Benevolent Fund; The Royal Air Forces Association; the RAF Museum; and The RAF Charitable Trust. The RAF 100 Baton ended it’s journey when it was delivered to The Queen in London this week on July 10 at Horse Guard’s Parade. The group are all based at Number 4 School of Technical Training at MOD St Athan and are training to be general technicians. Tom said: “We were pushing ourselves to the extreme to climb the three highest mountains in the UK in under 24 hours. It was tough, but being part of the RAF 100 Baton Relay and also raising money for the RAF 100 appeal was a great privilege for us all.” The team set off from MOD St Athan in Wales on June 15 and stayed overnight at Lochaber Air Cadet Squadron. They then tackled Ben Nevis first, followed by Scafell Pike and then Snowdon. Tom added: “I have done this because it is important to both remember and thank the veterans who fought and died for the sake of our country, and the Air Force. It is also important to thank the people serving today in uncertain times and also to inspire the next generation to ensure the Royal Air Force can continue on for another century.”

A FORMER RAF sergeant from West Lancashire has been chosen as vice-captain of Team GB for this year’s Invictus Games. Michelle Turner, from Burscough, who served with the RAF for 20 years, is one of the 72-strong team selected out of 411 hopefuls to represent the country at the games in Sydney, Australia in October. The games were created by Prince Harry for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans and features many sports including swimming, wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, and indoor rowing. Michelle, who has a young daughter Maya, has a heart condition which causes exhaustion, extreme dizziness and unannounced collapses. As a result, she had confined herself to her house for fear of collapsing in public. However, she overcame that fear and took part in the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017 and credits the games with transforming her life. She said: “My Invictus journey so far has been incredible. It transformed me from a mum, too scared to leave the house to top female rower for Team GB. “It also saved my marriage and gradually gave my little girl her mummy back.” The day after competing in the rowing in Toronto, Michelle collapsed in the hotel lobby. She was devastated but she says Invictus had taught her to never give up and, instead of staying in her room crying on returning from hospital, she got onto the coach, fully intending to take part in the swim heats. However, she hadn’t recovered enough and reluctantly had to pull out although she

eventually joined her teammates to cheer them on in the final swimming events. “I’ve never felt anything like that day in my life, it was a true rollercoaster of every emotion. I would have done anything to get in that water. I collapse unannounced at any moment so why would I dive into a swimming pool anyway? Because Invictus taught me that I can and gave me the confidence to! I had trained so hard but didn’t get to take part - I didn’t even get wet! So I definitely have unfinished business in the pool and being selected for the GB team again has given me that opportunity. To be made vice-captain is just the cherry on the cake. I am so proud!”
