A WASTE OF SPACE! Report by

David Raven

AN UNUSED dumping ground has been converted into a community garden. The Hinton and Lawler community garden project recently launched in Litherland is run by One Vision Housing in partnership with The Conservation Volunteers, residents, and pupils from Lander Road Primary School. Volunteers have cleared the site, planted a selection of trees including cherry, pear, and plum, and have installed three large raised beds. Eventually there will be eight of these beds, each containing a selection of fresh vegetables and herbs. Community development officer at One Vision, Nikki Bonner, said: “Each week, whether rain or snow, the school children and tenant volunteers have came down to the garden and set to work.

...but residents dig in to turn dumping ground into a community garden

the fruits of their labour in no time.” Head teacher at Lander Road Primary School, said: “When One Vision approached us we jumped at the chance to get involved. “Our school is at the heart of the community so it’s great to take on activities like this to help the children feel proud of their community and engage with the neighbourhood. “Many of the children only have backyards so the community garden is definitely appreciated by the children, giving them opportunities to enjoy activities that they can’t do at home or in the classroom.”

SEFTON’S job–seekers kicked off a national Start something campaign last week, by starting to look for jobs online. Start something, based in Bootle, challenges people to leave failed New Year’s resolutions behind and start something new online instead – from job–hunting to bargain–hunting, keeping in touch to keeping up to date. The campaign comes from OCF – the organisation behind the national network of UK online centres – with hundreds of start something sessions taking place across the country over the next five weeks. In Bootle, visitors to UK online centre the Opportunities Shop on Marsh Lane were getting to grips with computers and the internet, improving their basic computer skills and learning how to search and apply for jobs over the internet. Manager Julie Rigby said:

Internet initiative aims to encourage new approach to everything from job–seeking to bargain–hunting . . . “It doesn’t matter if you’re an office worker, a builder or a dental nurse, these days everyone needs to know their way around a computer to find a new job. “Most jobs are advertised online now, and you’ve got to be looking in the right places. “Most will also require some kind of basic computer know–how – from simple documents or spreadsheets to keeping databases or operating computerised machinery. “Many want you to fill in an application on their website, or at least have an email address and an electronic CV. “Improving your computer skills and taking your job

hunt online could be the kick–start you need to get back to work. “The job market is picking back up after Christmas, and at the Opportunities Shop we’re here to help you make a start on your journey back to work. “Why not come along and Start something with us today?” The Opportunities Shop will be hosting a series of drop–ins and workshops over the next few weeks. You can contact Julie at the Opportunities Shop on 0151 9442184. Alternatively you can find a UK online centre near you by calling free on 0800 77 1234.

Racism in Sefton’s schools ‘far from beaten’ warns MP Revealed: Shocking number of racist incidents in classrooms

David Raven

NEARLY 250 racist incidents were recorded in Sefton’s schools in the last two years, the Champion can reveal. Data from a Freedom of Information request shows the borough’s schools had 145 reports of racist incidents during the financial year 2010/11 and 94 in 2011/12. After the murder of teenager of Stephen Lawrence the previous government said schools in England and Wales must report all incidents of racist abuse to their local authority. But the Coalition Government has changed the guidance meaning schools have no duty to report the data for racism incidents. The figures also show that some 106 parents cited bullying as a reason to request a transfer for their child during 2011/12. Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson said: “We need to stamp out any kind of racism. That starts in school. Racism

in any form is not acceptable, either racist behaviour or racist language. “That’s why the Labour Government introduced the measures for schools to report all incidents of racist abuse. “We need to eradicate racism and the only way to do that is from our schools up. “It needs to be rooted out. “Bullying and intimidation of any kind especially racism is not acceptable and it must be rooted out and dealt with whenever it occurs – including in our schools.” Sarah Soyei, of Show Racism the Red Card said: “The numbers of recorded

racist incidents are just the tip of the iceberg. Racism is a very real issue in many classrooms around the country, but cases of racist bullying are notoriously under reported. Often teachers may not be aware of racism in their classrooms because victims are scared of reporting them out of fear of making the situation worse.” A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it occurs, and particularly in schools, where every child has the right to learn in an environment free from prejudice.” “It is teachers and parents – not central government – that know what is happening in their schools, and they are best placed to deal with racist behaviour when it happens. “We would expect all schools to implement their own processes to ensure they are dealing with racist incidents in the most appropriate way, rather than being bogged down with paperwork from the centre – which can sometimes mean that the most serious cases of racism are not dealt with.”

MERSEYRAIL is on the right track when it comes to keeping its customers happy, according to a survey by the consumer magazine Which?. The train operator was ranked in joint third place by customers, as it achieved a customer score of 64% in Which?’s second annual trains survey. The survey of the country’s biggest train operating companies was carried out among 7,500 regular train–users, and compiled scores based on passengers’ overall satisfaction with the company and whether they would be likely to recommend it. Virgin Trains is leading the way according to the Which? findings, which amounted to a customer score of 67%, while London Overground was in second place with 65% and C2C, like Merseyrail, also scored 64%. Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said: “With 1.5

Southport area, that a lack of toilet facilities would damage tourism in the area. At last Thursday’s cabinet meeting though, councillors discussed plans to keep facilities in place across the borough by increasing the charge for pay–to–use toilets and, where feasible, introducing charges at all public conveniences instead. A report discussed by cabinet members recommended that the changed option, which also included reducing the budget

for repair maintenance and vandalism “on the understanding that should any significant work be necessary this may result in the closure of a facility due to a lack of funding,” should lead to a budget reduction of £40,000 as an alternative to closures. Councillor Haydn Preece welcomed the move, claiming that toilets on Ainsdale beach in particular were “essential from a tourism point of view.”

billion train journeys made every year and eight of the 17 UK rail franchises up for grabs in the next two years, customer service should be top of the agenda for every train operating company. ”It is good to see some are performing well on service, but customers clearly feel others need to do better.“ Merseyrail welcomed the news that it is keeping its customers happy, and a spokesperson said: ”Merseyrail is pleased to have scored highly in the Which? Survey on trains, following on from our success in the National Passenger Survey last month. “We strive to provide a service that works well for passengers and are constantly looking for ways to make it even better.” Elsewhere in the region Northern Rail, which serves Southport and West Lancashire, was listed among the bottom five train companies with a 44% score.

Alzheimer’s group’s special guest

Councillor Marianne Welsh (standing centre) went along to see Sefton Alzheimers Dementia Support group at one of their Singing for the Brain sessions. Code1056677 THE Sefton branch of the Alzhzeimer’s Society played host to a special guest when Councillor Marianne Welsh went along to take a closer look at how the group helps people to live well with dementia. The Norwood ward councillor and former West End performer met up with the charity’s ‘Singing for the Brain’ group at the Salvation Army centre in Shakespeare Street, Southport recently. The group’s members, who engage in the musical activity as they are able to

remember words from songs they knew years ago, are coming to the end of their six–month activity course. And the local Alzheimer’s Society is preparing to welcome a new intake of members for its singing group in March, as well as relaunching a host of its other activity groups for a new season, including dance, music, art, reading together and maintaining skills.

Pupils’ helping hand for African kids Report by

David Raven

A FUNRAISING effort by a Crosby school is giving a ‘helping hand’ to children in one of Africa’s poorest nations. Pupils at St Mary’s College have raised £5,000 through the sale of wristbands and other charity projects to help youngsters at their twin school, St Martin’s, in the West African state of Liberia. The money will be used to fund a new playground and sports facilities and equipment for the Liberian children. The wristband fundraiser has been linked to an international appeal marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of Edmund Rice, the founder of the Christian Brothers who set up St Mary’s College. Pupils at St Mary’s preparatory school, The Mount, started the ball rolling by buying the Edmund Rice Beyond 250 Appeal wristbands, at the same time helping the people who make them in one of the largest slums in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Students at St Mary’s senior school were inspired by the efforts of their younger counterparts and quickly joined in the fundraising as well. All the money raised from wristband sales was then added to the proceeds of other charity projects – like the

Some of the teachers and pupils who helped raise the funds school’s sponsored Edmund Rice Walk – and presented to the Beyond 250 Appeal recently. The appeal will in turn pass the money on to St Martin’s in Liberia as part of its wider mission to transform lives in the developing world.

STAFF and clients at an Ormskirk Solicitors have helped raise more than £7,000 for Crosby–based Autism Initiatives through a Charity Will Month held during November last year. The scheme worked by clients making a donation to Autism Initiatives rather than paying the usual fee for a will at Dickinson Parker Hill. Michael Prendergast, a partner at Dickinson Parker Hill, said: “Each year we hold the Charity Will Month and each year the people of West Lancashire continue to be incredibly generous with their support. “We would like to thank all of those clients who took part in their scheme for their kind

The not–for–profit Giveacar, which supports the NSPCC, has helped raise £21,000 by accepting donations of cars from the public. Giveacar collects unwanted vehicles free of charge, and auctions them on the owners behalf, donating the proceeds of the sale to charity. For every car donated, the

THE coveted Grand National trophy was reunited with its most celebrated winner earlier this month, when it made a special trip to Southport. Aintree officials arranged for it to be taken to the town’s statue of Red Rum, which stands proudly in Lord Street’s Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, to mark the 40th anniversary of his victory at the famous steeplechase. Visitors were able to catch a close–up glimpse of the trophy as well as having their photograph taken alongside Red Rum, who was famously trained by Ginger McCain for his record three Grand National wins along Birkdale and Ainsdale beaches.

very honoured to have had the opportunity to sing onboard.” HMS Illustrious heads back to sea to practise her key skills as the nation’s high readiness helicopter carrier. On current planning, she is due to be retired from operational service at the end of 2014. Captain Martin Connell, ‘Lusty’s’ commanding officer said: “It is with a considerable tinge of sadness that we leave Liverpool for what might be the last time. We have all been made to feel incredibly welcome and Liverpool has lived up to its reputation as one of the friendliest, most vibrant and welcoming places for a ship such as HMS Illustrious to visit. “I know that the forthcoming Battle of the Atlantic commemorations will further tighten the bonds between the Royal Navy and this great city and I am sure that the Fleet Flagship HMS Bulwark and the other ships in company will be afforded the same great welcome we have had.”

established in too many town halls over the last decade. “It is incredible that some councils have even increased spending on high earning staff this year after a decade in which council tax doubled across the country and when every local authority needs to find savings and ease the burden. Savings “In those cases where it is the result of redundancy payments then we need to see the savings soon.” In 1996–97, the average local authority employed seven people earning more than £50,000. This number rose to 66 by 2006–07 and in 2011–12, the average number of council staff earning more than

£50,000 was 71 – more than before the financial crisis. Previous research showed that over the 10 years before the financial crisis, the number of local authority staff with remuneration of more than £50,000 had increased more than three times as quickly as in the private sector. Mr Sinclair added: “Councils must cut spending and should look at pay – one of the biggest items of expenditure – as an area for savings. “This research looks at the progress being made by every local authority in the UK in slimming down bureaucracy. “Councillors need to insist that their local authority does more to find savings and cut back on staff costs.”

CROSBY’S Iron Men stood gawping at Invincible–class light aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious as it sailed into Liverpool last week. During a high tide on St Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14, at around midday, the ship sailed past Crosby beach. Luckily for Champion readers, Joyce Davies, the wife of local photographer Ron Davies, was on hand to capture the scene. This picture is Joyce’s own interpretation of Ron’s style of photography. Another highlight of the visit was an after–dinner performance to more than 90 local dignitaries by rising singing star Danielle Thomas, 22, from Waterloo. She performed a set–piece in the ship’s enormous hangar followed by a performance by the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Scotland. Danielle said: “I had an amazing time. Everyone was brilliant, very welcoming. I feel

HMS Illustrious – picture by Joyce Davies

SEFTON Council spent £5,272,500 on 81 ‘town hall middle managers’ who each earned at least £50,000 in the last financial year. While the local authority struggles to balance its books, figures published today (Wednesday) show higher–end pay packages – which include salary, benefits and bonuses for the year 2011/12. A new report reveals Sefton has saved £2million on the total cost of these packages since 2010/11, but there were still 81 staff who earned more than £50,000 – which is ten higher than the national average. According to the Taxpayers’ Alliance, the cost of paying these staff is on average the equivalent of 7.5 per cent of council tax receipts. TaxPayers’ Alliance chief executive Matthew Sinclair said: “Taxpayers are still paying far too much for bloated bureaucracies that have been

Friends get busy raising funds to improve park Report by

David Raven

THE Friends of Moorside Park have been busy making handmade crafts for several craft fairs to raise funds towards improvements within the park. Volunteers have been busy making a range of handmade items to sell, including toys, cards, knitted items, chutneys, as well as Easter and Mother’s day gift ideas The Friends group took over the maintenance of the rose gardens just under 12 months ago and are planning to use any funds they raise towards buying new rose bushes. The group will be having a stall at the table sales at St Luke’s Church on March, 9 and St Faith’s Church, Waterloo on March, 16 and 23. Louise Hicks, chair for the group, said: “Our volunteers have been busy making some lovely items to sell at the table sales and crafts fairs. “We have been really fortunate that several local businesses have donated items to us. Hobbycraft, Chester and Tileworld both donated supplies to us, which is really appreciated.” The group have also been donated a voucher for afternoon tea for Annie’s Tea Room on Endbutt Lane for a raffle prize at the craft fairs. Annie Matthews, owner of the Tea Rooms, said: “I am really passionate about supporting local community groups and saw it as an opportunity to support a really good cause. “With it coming up to Mother’s Day and

A SMALL fire broke out at a property in Beaconsfield Road, Seaforth after a box of tissues was left on top of a lamp. Firefighters were called out on Monday, February 18 following a report of a smell of burning. The tissues had started a small fire and four rooms were damaged by smoke. Watch manager Dave Shanahan, of Red Watch at Crosby Community Fire Station, said: “No item should be left on top of a lamp as heat can build up and cause a fire.”

The report stated: “By allocating the above amounts to the Town Teams it will allow partners to create community and economy resilience within the Town Centres, while also allowing the Town Teams to implement a number of their activities. “The funding combined with their already allocated £10,000 Portas Pilots monies will allow the Town Teams to plan a sustainable model that will enable them to co–ordinate and map out the future of their Town Centres.”

THE UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and internet crime, Action Fraud, launched in Merseyside this week, becoming a primary point of contact for Sefton residents. Action Fraud allows residents to report incidents online or via a dedicated phone number and is expected to free up police resources. In some cases Action Fraud will transfer callers straight back to the local police force, such as an investigation where a crime is in action. For instance, when there is a known offender, a crime is happening at that time or if there is a vulnerable victim involved. However, it will retain investigations in such incidents as advance fee frauds, banking and credit industry fraud, online shopping and auctions and computer software service fraud. Detective Chief Inspector Steve Fell of Merseyside Police said: “Every police force is changing to use Action Fraud as their fraud and internet crime reporting service – this helps us to free up police resources to focus on the actual investigations. “We don’t want Merseyside residents to think that we won’t answer their calls in relation to fraud offences, as in most cases we will still

New hub will take public’s calls and free up police resources be carrying out the investigations, especially where a crime is in action. However all fraud incidents will be recorded centrally by Action Fraud and in some cases they will investigated on a national level. “This central point of information will enable us to identify seemingly unrelated incidents, trends and ultimately solve crimes and identify networks of criminals. “We want to make it easy as possible for people to report crimes and we don’t want fraudsters to get away with it. “Even if you don’t lose money, it is important that you report it to Action Fraud – your information can help to root out fraudsters and prevent future attacks.” Jamey Johnson, head of Action Fraud, added: “Fraud is not a victimless crime, it can devastate lives and it’s vital we take strong action to prevent people falling foul of criminals who prey on the vulnerable.

“Following a successful pilot, by April 2013 every police force in England and Wales will be using Action Fraud to report incidents of fraud and internet crime in their area. “Action Fraud is already the UK’s one–stop–shop for fraud advice and reporting, and has helped more than 300,000 people deal with the consequences of fraud and internet crime. “Rolling out the service will free up police time and resources and allow us to build an accurate national picture to lead the fight against fraudsters.” Fraud and internet crime can be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week Action Fraud’s website at www.actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling the dedicated phone number 0300 123 2040 during office hours. The most convenient way to report a fraud is online and reporting takes an average of 20 minutes.

Tough Guy challenge competed... with leg break by David Simister

John Dickson at the start of the Tough Guy Challenge.

AN ACTION man from the borough has managed to raise £800 by taking part in a gruelling cross country challenge for charity – despite breaking his leg in the process! John Dickson, the managing director at car dealership 06 Vauxhall, which has showrooms in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, said he managed to raise £800 for Queenscourt Hospice and Walking with the Wounded by completing the eight mile Tough Guy Challenge despite his injuries. He said this week: “Here at 06 Vauxhall, we are dedicated to showing our support for a good cause, and although I’m hobbling around with the aid of crutches, I’m delighted to have completed the challenge and raised over £800 for such worthy charities. I would like to thank everyone who donated and supported me. “Entering the Tough Guy

Challenge was a great experience and completely worth all the pain. I’m considering entering next year, although my wife might have something to say about that!” Mr Dickson, from Southport, added that he had to traverse ankle–deep mud, wade through the icy lakes and suffer electrocution while completing trials in complete darkness, and that despite fracturing his fibula during the challenge he managed to complete the challenge, set across eight of miles of Staffordshire’s toughest countryside, in two hours and 45 minutes. The contestants also had to deal with sleet, hailstones, ice and a wind chill of–17 degrees, while the event’s organisers also set off tear gas bombs to make the challenge even more disorientating. The Tough Guy Challenge is one of a number of fundraising events the dealership’s staff have taken part in, including supporting the Movember campaign.

LETTERS to the Editor Sefton Council and the Archdiocese behaved Don’t blame disgracefully over school merger redundancy issues staff for job centre failures

Further to the article Settlement Package is Put Forward in Teacher Dispute in the Champion February 6 editionand in relation to the settlement package for school staff made redundant. On reading what appeared to be a very informed article I was subsequently dumfounded by some of the comments made by Councillor Peter Dowd. The beginnings of the current problem lay with Sefton Council’s decision to close St George’s High School in Bootle and, more recently, St Wilfrid’s in Litherland. The decision was made without any consideration for the parents and children in the nearby communities, nor the staff of both schools. Councillor Dowd says he has great sympathy

for the people caught up in this, but where was his sympathy when the closure of St Wilfrid’s was being voted on in the council chambers? Councillor Dowd goes on to say it is a very complex legal issue and the staff are just looking to receive what they deserve. This is true, but again Councillor Dowd neglects the fact that it was his council’s decision to close both schools and then attempt to avoid their responsibilities as an employer by refusing to pay redundancies to those staff who, in his own words, “deserved” the money when they lost their jobs. Councillor Dowd finishes by saying the offer will enable the council and Hawthorne’s Trust to avoid a lengthy and costly legal process, but the closure announcements for both schools were issued well before the concept of the

PICTURE of the week

Hawthorne’s Free School was even thought of. The subsequent announcement of a possible merged free school enabled the council to evade their responsibilities on a technicality. The fact is Sefton Council and the Archdio– cese have behaved disgracefully throughout this whole affair and if they had paid the redundancies when the schools closed there would be no complex legal issue to resolve. After such a long time, the fact that this matter is still unresolved, and dozens of people have not been paid the redundancy to which they are legally entitled, is shameful. Let us now hope that the council agree a just settlement for all those affected, and they bring this matter to a swift conclusion. Mr E Bernard, Litherland

Re: Disrespect at the Job Centre letter. As somebody who worked in the private sector with staff employed by DWP throughout the North West, I feel that to generalize complaints against all staff and all offices is without merit. Staff are employed in the main on short term contracts with almost impossible targets, not to assist people in to work, which is a specialist skill, but to complete interviews on a regular basis basically to try to insure claimants are not signing on while claiming. Training is aimed to ensure advisers understand and complete forms to the satisfaction of the DWP which puts them at a disadvantage when dealing with genuine job seekers’ enquiries regarding vacancies and job related subjects. It has always been the way that advisors have to deal with clients with basic skills and can become frustrated because they have not been trained to deal with problems outside the filling of forms. Successive administrations have accepted that job centres cannot provide the service expected by claimants and fudge the issue by funding, at enormous cost to the taxpayer, a series of non–productive work training schemes, such as Project Work, New Deal and now Work Experience instead of employing addition full time staff in each job centre, trained and capable of assisting clients to identify opportunities, producing quality CVs. The ‘this and us’ situation will only be erased if a new approach by the DWP is adopted in a genuine attempt to reduce unemployment and help staff in local offices feel they are appreciated. It is wrong to blame staff for the situation that exists and I would hope for a time when things are not going to get better quickly, things will improve for everyone’s benefit. Tony Harris, Maghull

Verges have been problem for years

Help nation’s heart charity

I find it ridiculous that one man, our MP, can vote according to his conscience. Our conscience tells us what’s right and wrong. He is clearly saying its wrong. Which would clearly say that he has got an issue with same sex couples let alone the issue of marriage, and this person gets to shape the future of such a crucial issue!

February is National Heart Month when the nation’s heart charity, the British Heart Foundation (BHF), encourages the public to think about their hearts and the hearts of those around them. We want to call on readers to continue to support us. For more information visit bhf.org.uk/red or call 0300 330 0645.

In reply to Victoria Cuckson’s letter expressing shock and disgust at the protection of marriage (The Champion, January 23). Many people are worried at the speed with which some of the ancient traditions are being changed. New definition of monarchy and marriage are being fast tracked through Parliament with very little consultation. The future well being of our children could be at stake. AJ Leek, By email

I read with interest the article regarding the unfortunate accident of Mrs Marshall who fell and broke her wrist in one of the quagmires along Eastway in Maghull. A crumbling verge surround caused a little boy to fall and hurt himself several years ago. It is a wonder that nobody has fallen over the kerb onto the road as they get out of their car as the kerb stones at the side of some verges can be several inches higher than the ground. I am not surprised this has happened given that I have been highlighting the problem of the verges since 2007. But it is not always the resident who is to blame but neighbours, visitors, delivery men and workmen all of whom feel compelled to use the verge, even if only for a few minutes. People often park on undamaged verges because they’re not full of mud and water.

MANY years ago, when I was at school, I used to cross off the days to the next holidays in my diary. Now that wasn’t that I disliked school – it was just that I liked holidays. Trouble is, in this at least I never grew up. Now, at the end of each holiday, I count up the days ‘till the next. I don’t cross them off every day, but every few days I revisit the thing and watch the numbers gradually reducing. Now when I was literally a baby, and for the following nine years or so, the annual family holiday was always at Butlin’s holiday camp at Pwllheli in North Wales – and I loved it. I remember the mechanical elephant, the dining hall decorated with scenes from Snowdonia, the bathing cove we discovered (complete with a sewer pipe to jump into the sea from.) Oh, and in the early days at least the antique petrol/electric ‘toast rack’ buses which were so feeble that if fully loaded half the passengers had to alight if it were to clamber its way over a bridge in the camp. Today I suppose it would be called a hybrid. Then it was just quaint. Come the mid ‘50s and we were off, by air if you will, to the Isle of Man (and a long

lasting love affair with the place) and then the inevitable package tours abroad. By air and coach though, so I was well satisfied. But in 1961 my brother acquired his first dog, from which he could not be parted. And entirely by chance, dad happened upon an advert in the paper for boating holidays in Norfolk and Suffolk – and the rest they say, is history. So now, my days to hols in my diary all refer to the next time I will be able to get onboard my lovely cruiser, ‘Manxman.’ Some Philistines wonder how anyone can actually look forward to going to the same place, doing much the same things, several times a year. Well, all I can say is that it is fascinating watching the effect of the changing seasons from visit to visit, and of course the fact that being based on three principal rivers, things are constantly on the change.

And in recent years, I’ve seen (in the wild) foxes, hares, goats, deer – and on one marvellous occasion, a seal basking on one of the wooden cross members of a railway swing bridge, fully 10 miles from the sea. Mind you, if I had the cash I’d love to travel to China, or travel by train across the Rockies, and or an ocean cruise (where you are at sea for several days at a time rather than port–hopping). But I’d still want to go down to my boat. So the Broads it is then. And to the many people who cannot afford the Rockies or China either and instead choose Benidorm or similar (complete with the British Pub, fish and chips and a roast Sunday lunch), I’d say “good luck to you”. Personally I’d rather spend a damp week in Bolton than put up with an arrival at 3am or something at Manchester Airport and a flight to guaranteed sun – but who am I, not only a sad stay at home, but one who always goes to the same place, to point the finger? There’s only really one important thing about holidays –well to actually I suppose. That you should really look forward to them (and cross off the days) – and that you’re not disappointed when they do come round.

Campaigner takes part in Mad Dog event Report by

A CAMPAIGNER put his best foot forward as he raised £250 for Jospice at a gruelling 10k sponsored run at the weekend. Ben Murphy, in the Crosby Labour group, completed the Mad Dog 10k Run in Southport on Sunday, February 10 in 58 minutes 4 seconds. The former Merchant Taylors’ pupil and University of York graduate decided to take part in the run to raise money for the worthy local charity. He said: “I took part in the Mad Dog 10k because I wanted to raise money for Jospice. “I wanted to get fit and support a great local cause at the same time, so I thought training for the run would give me the incentive. “It was great on the day with over 2,400 people taking part, everyone of them urging everyone else on. And there was lots of support from spectators along the route, which was great. “It was a brilliant atmosphere.” Ben thanked everyone who supported him and gave him donations. He said: “So far I have raised £250. I’d like to thank everyone who has donated. “Jospice is a great cause. We all know someone whose life has been touched in some

A STELLAR line–up of bestselling authors and illustrators could be beamed live to viewers across Sefton to mark this year’s World Book Day. The ‘Biggest Book Show on Earth’ will be hosted by renowned children’s writer and TV presenter Tony Robinson as it is broadcasted live from London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on Thursday, March 7. It will feature the likes of Horrid Henry author, Francesca Simon showing how to bring characters to life, as well as the ‘grand dame’ of children’s literature, Shirley Hughes, explaining how to use illustrations. Also taking to the stage to offer their insights to children to help them improve their writing will be Lauren Child (Ruby Redfort), Liz Pichon (Tom Gates), Cathy Cassidy (The Chocolate Box Girls) and Anthony Horowitz (Diamond Brothers), while illustrators Rachel Bright and Guy Parker–Rees will demonstrate how to draw characters and book covers. Homes, schools, bookshops and libraries across Sefton are being encouraged to get involved by streaming the event live online from 11am to 12pm, or watching it on–demand the following day. Parents, teachers and librarians will also be able to download resources to help young audiences join in the fun and read along.

To take part you can register for free at www.worldbookday.com and check your technical set–up before the big day. Half a million children from more than 75 countries logged on to watch the show in 2012, and this year it is just one of a number of events and activities in schools, bookshops and libraries set to excite youngsters about books and reading for World Book Day 2013. Meanwhile older readers can join The Word Herd, a new scheme encouraging teens to share their passion for reading with their peers. They will also be able to access exclusive new digital–only content from popular teen writers including Patrick Ness, Dawn O’ Porter and Alex Scarrow via a brand new app for iOS and Android, powered by teen social reading and writing community, Movellas.

Local health chiefs in call for ban on ‘glitzy’ tobacco packaging SEFTON health bosses have called on the Government to ban shiny cigarette packets claiming the bright colours make them attractive to children. New estimates show that in the North West more than 18,000 children start smoking every year – that equates to 52 a day or one every 28 minutes. It is now six months since the national Government consultation on plain, standardised packaging for tobacco closed, with no decision yet made by ministers. During the consultation, more than 11,900 Merseyside residents signed up to support the campaign to introduce plain, standardised tobacco packs and demand the end of glitzy cigarette packaging aimed at young people. Dr Janet Atherton, Sefton’s director of public health said: “UK tobacco companies have been increasingly

looking to packaging as a way to engage new customers – most of whom start as children under 18. In public health terms, this policy change would be a landmark event. “In Sefton we are committed to driving down the number of young people who take up smoking – removing branded cigarette packaging would be significant in

turning off the tap of new young smokers.” One fear is that standardised packaging would be easier to counterfeit for criminals looking to illegally import cigarettes. But Andrew Naisbitt, Sefton Council’s trading standards and licensing manager, does not believe this to be the case. He said: “Illegal tobacco is a problem in some areas, but the size of the market has halved over the last decade due to tough regulation of the supply of tobacco and massive improvements in detection. “There is no evidence standardised packs will fuel illegal tobacco. Criminals can already copy the most complicated design of cigarettes, hair straighteners or trainers and have them on the market within weeks. Packs will still have coded identifiers so enforcement teams can tell legal from illegal tobacco.”

ORGANISERS of the British Musical Fireworks Championship in Southport are already getting plans for this year’s spectacle underway. The competitors who will take part in the competition have now been announced. Seven world class pyrotechnic companies will fight to win the much coveted title and the challenge is even greater this year as this event has relocated to Victoria Park, home of the Southport Flower Show. Due to the £5.5 million revamp of Southport’s King’s Gardens where the competition is usually held, a decision has been made to permanently switch venues. The new site will see some great improvements to the annual championships and also allows for more new innovative displays from the competitors – so expect some surprises. The rules remain the same, displays will be performed and synchronised to a wide selection of music from classical to chart favourites. Each dazzling display will last around 20 minutes. The competition begins on Friday, October 4, with a performance from Komodo Fireworks, the reigning champions, who will set the evening off with a bang. They will be followed

Search for pet dog New academy offers free hair and beauty courses ends in tragedy Report by

David Simister

A SEARCH for a beloved pet dog who went missing on a walk with her owner in Aintree has ended in tragedy after her body was found this week in a nearby canal. Aintree residents were urged to help in the search for Poppy, an 18–month–old beagle, after she went missing while on a walk near Wango Lane on the afternoon of Sunday, January 20. The prized pet broke free from her owner’s control to chase some birds, slipped on a patch of ice and fell into the freezing waters of the

nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal, prompting a frantic search by her owners and nearby residents to find her. Lisa Symonds, a friend of the dog’s owner who helped coordinate an online search campaign after sightings of Poppy were reported, said that she was hopeful that Poppy could have climbed out of the canal but confirmed that her body had been found in the canal, close to where she had originally gone missing. The campaign to find Poppy was reported online by Dogs Lost UK and Team Beagle Lost and Found, with volunteers in and around Aintree joining in a search to try and track her down. david.simister@champnews.com

FASHION–loving youngsters in Maghull are being offered the chance to get thousands of pounds worth of training for free at a new hair and beauty centre in the town. Sefton Skills Academy, which opened last week, is a new facility offering unemployed people aged between 16 and 18 the chance to do training courses in hair and beauty, with the courses paid for by the Government. Gill Clements, who co–manages the centre with Louise Smith, told The Champion: “It’s taken us a while to get the scheme up and running because we’ve set up the salon ourselves, but now we’re ready to go, the funding is in place and we’re keen to help young people who want to get into the world of hair and beauty. “There’s a lot of young people in our local area who aren’t in work at the moment, and if they’re interested in hair and beauty then this can give a lot of experience and training and something to put on their CV, and it’ll cost them absolutely nothing.” Sefton Skills Academy has interview slots available for anyone interested in taking up one of their courses. For more information call either 07515 379458 or 07863 620000 or search for “Sefton Skills Academy” on Facebook.

Report by David Raven AN award winning apprentice electrician visited his old school this week, and gave the perfect plug to a career in electrics. Michael Von Bargen, 18, a former pupil of Holy Family Catholic School in Thornton, was the first employee to be taken on by Sovini Property Services – the maintenance arm of One Vision Housing, Holy Family approached Sovini asking if Michael could talk to the Year 11 students about apprenticeships and his experience of working as a tradesman. Michael also advised the children on the best ways of completing application forms and how to conduct themselves in an interview. Michael was joined at Holy Family by Sovini Property Services apprentice plumber, 18–year old Danni Lee Walsh. Like Michael, Danni has also shone in her field, recently being put forward to represent all Liverpool Community plumbing apprentices at the Housing and Innovation Plumbing (HIP) competition at Harrogate College. Similarly Michael was chosen by Hugh Baird College to represent all electrical apprentices. Michael’s aptitude for electrics was rewarded recently when he was named the best building apprentice in the North West in the Federation of Master Builder’s (FMB) Apprentice of the Year Awards.

The Champion • Wednesday 20 February 2013

A CLASS of teenagers have received a heartfelt thanks after they made specialist bags to help hospital patients receiving palliative care carry their medical equipment. Year 10 textile students at Sacred Heart, Crosby were praised by Macmillan Cancer Care after they donated 51 syringe driver bags. A syringe driver is a small portable pump that can be used to give cancer patients a continuous dose of medicine. These bags were then given to the Macmillan Nurses who distributed them among the palliative care patients at the Royal Liverpool Hospital. The gesture has been warmly welcomed and the students praised for both their handiwork and the gesture. Rita Doyle, a palliative care nurse specialist and end of life project manager at Macmillan, was delighted with the donation. She said: “It is hard to find the right words to properly explain the difference these bags will make. “The syringe pumps are heavy and awkward for patients to carry around, especially when they are not feeling well. “Before the pupils made the bags, we had nothing to help the patients carry them around and, frequently, they were dropped on the floor and got damaged. “These syringe drivers are expensive bits of equipment and it is difficult to manage when we have pumps out of action because they have been dropped. “Not only will these bags help the patients, but they will reduce the number of pumps getting damaged and, therefore, help our team

Pupils with their syringe driver bags Code NA to make sure we are able to continue our work to make our patients comfortable. “It is a wonderful example of the value of the voluntary and charitable work having a direct benefit to local people. “The students’ work is very precious to us and we are extremely grateful.” Head of textiles, Maureen Gamble, is pleased with the confidence the project has instilled in her students. She said: “As a result of the project, the students’ knowledge, confidence and practical skills in using a sewing machine has been enhanced ready for their GCSE course work. “Most of all, the enthusiastic textile students saw the project as a great way of giving back to their community.” david.raven@champnews.com

Lifesaving defibrillators for fire service Natasha Young

ALL community fire stations and fire engines across Sefton are to be equipped with defibrillators, to help save more lives from cardiac arrests. According to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), a total of 1,318 people in the borough alone died from heart disease between 2008 and 2010, and the charity has now joined forces with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MF&RS) to make urgent help more available in local communities. The Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are being introduced at 26 stations and all other fire service buildings across the whole of Merseyside as part of the scheme for use on staff or members of the public, and will be in place by February 28. They will also be introduced on every operational fire appliance. The equipment issues an automatic electric shock to the heart when the adhesive pad is placed on a person’s body in the correct location and in the prescribed manner. MF&RS has worked closely with the BHF, the North West Ambulance Service and the NHS to make the scheme possible. Deputy chief fire officer, Phil Garrigan, said: “Although we have defibrillators at some locations there is not one on every community fire station and we wanted to change that to help our communities. People from our communities use our fire stations’ meeting

rooms and gyms on a regular basis and also visit the sites. However, this measure will help not just the public but it will be available for our staff too. We would like to thank the British Heart Foundation who supported and part funded this phase of the project. “The second phase of the project will see defibrillators, identical to those used by the North West Ambulance Service, placed on every frontline fire appliance for use at incidents. Although our frontline firefighters already have ‘First Person on Scene’ and ‘Trauma Care’ qualifications, all of our staff will be trained to use this new equipment.” Ken Fretwell, the fundraising volunteer manager for Merseyside and Cheshire at the British Heart Foundation, added: “It’s brilliant to see all the emergency services in Merseyside, including our firefighters, equipped to save the life of someone who has had a cardiac arrest. “During cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without defibrillation means a patient’s chance of survival decreases by about 10 per cent – they’re absolutely vital in the chain of survival. “Any initiative like this that helps put defibrillators in places where they’re needed the most will undoubtedly save lives.” British Heart Foundation volunteers Jean and Graham Cox, who are based on the Wirral, and Tommy Callagher, based in Liverpool, helped to raise funds for the defibrillators.

A great chance for first-time buyers to move into their dream home There’s never been a better time for first time buyers to snap up their dream home at Keepmoat’s sought-after Regency Park development in Bootle

A range of other exceptional two, three and four bedroom homes is also available at the development, which continues to prove extremely popular with families, young professionals and first time purchasers.

A special finance scheme currently available at the stunning development ends very soon, so househunters looking for a new, luxurious first home are advised to act quickly to take advantage.

Jen Brown, Keepmoat Regional Sales Manager, said: “Regency Park is a thriving development, within easy reach of the city centre.

The government-backed scheme, called FirstBuy, means purchasers need only fund 80% of the original property price themselves, with the remaining 20% funded by an equity loan from Keepmoat and the government’s Homes and Communities Agency.

“The FirstBuy scheme is just one of the finance options available at the development, which are helping purchasers make their budgets stretch further. It has already enabled more than a dozen first time buyers to buy a stunning home here – giving them a fantastic start to a life of property ownership.

A beautiful new two bedroom Marquess semi-detached home with garden is available for £99,995, but using the scheme it could be yours for just £79,995.

“Unfortunately, the FirstBuy scheme ends soon, so purchasers need to move quickly to avoid missing out on this fantastic opportunity.”

This lovely property offers space and style in abundance. It boasts a well-equipped kitchen/diner, a light airy living room with French doors opening out onto the rear garden, a convenient downstairs WC, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with contemporary suite and tiling.

You can see the Marquess for yourself by visiting the Regency Park Showhome at Balliol Road, Bootle L20 7EA between 10am – 5pm Thursday to Sunday and 10am – 6pm on Mondays. For more information, please call Tracy Clarkson on 0151 909 2497 or visit keepmoat.com

Rib–tickling shows in store at new arts venue SOUTHPORT’S multi–million pound venue, The Atkinson has a rib–tickling season of entertainment lined up when it opens this spring. Comedy fans are in for a real treat as 2011’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee Josh Widdicombe gets set to hit the Lord Street stage on May 2, in his show featuring fellow funnyman Seann Walsh. Star of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’, ‘Last Leg with Adam Hills’ and BBC One’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, Josh Widdicombe’s eagerly awaited brand new stand–up tour ‘The Further Adventures Of ’ deals with his inability to embrace adventure in his life and his continued frustration with everything he comes into contact with. Unable to relax and enjoy life, Josh has instead decided it is everyone else that is at fault for his lack of enthusiasm for leaving the house. Now regarded as one of the best up–and–coming acts in the UK, Josh is in constant demand at across the nation both in his solo shows and as support for the likes of Stephen Merchant, Alan Carr, Kevin Bridges and Michael McIntyre. Seann Walsh, who has also appeared on TV shows including BBC One’s ‘Live at the Apollo’,

Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’ and Dave’s ‘Argumental’, is back with an all–new hour of sharp, creative observational comedy. Next up is topical quiz show regular Rich Hall, who will be heading to the resort on May 8. Known to millions across the nation from his appearances on ‘QI’, ‘Live At The Apollo’, Channel 4’s ‘Comedy Gala Live At The O2’ and ‘Have I Got News For You’ on BBC One, Rich’s renowned grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and king of rapid–fire wit. Fans can see the comic genius from Montana discuss a variety of topics all delivered in his own hilarious unique way. He will be followed by comedian, writer, broadcaster and all–round British institution, Arthur Smith on May 15, who will be bringing his new show ‘Exposed’ to The Atkinson. Audiences should expect an evening of sublime playfulness, crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs and readings from Arthur’s recently published memoir ‘My Name Is Daphne Fairfax’, which has won praise from literary critics. Then on May 29 the award–winning writer, poet, comedian, actor, presenter and producer Monkey Poet will perform in the town.

Music club hails success of town’s jazz weekend THE organisers of a series of jazz performances held in Southport earlier this month have hailed the event as a spectacular success. Southport Melodic Jazz Club told the Champion that their Jazz On A Winter’s Weekend, held between February 3 and 5 at the resort’s Royal Clifton Hotel, proved a hit with music lovers, with more than 2,500 tickets for the concerts being sold. The club’s next event will see Sheffield born – but American educated – pianist Alex Hutton teaming up with Russian double bassist Yuri Goloubev and Israeli master percussionist Asaf Sirkis for a performance

The Steve Waterman Big Band at the festival earlier this month. Code NA this Sunday (February 24). Tickets cost £14, with club members paying £13, NUS members paying £8 and

free admission for accompanied under 16s. For more information call 01704 541790.

Ormskirk group to stage Hindle Wakes

on our website www.champnews.com

Crowne Plaza Hotel Hotel, Speke Rd ,Liverpool L24-8QD

’Murder Mystery’ is a double bill of two very different shows which seamlessly roll into one. After an unhinged heckle on opening night in San Francisco, Monkey Poet resorts to beer. Then the evening takes a strange twist when Dylan Thomas buys him a drink and takes him to a party. Vividly bringing to life Homer, Shelley, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Dorothy Parker and other great wordsmiths, ‘Murder Mystery’ is fast paced and funny as hell. Monkey Poet then morphs into a radical stand up for his second act, dealing with democracy, religion, homo and xenophobias, and the terrifying day Dad took the stabilisers off the bike. In addition to these headline shows The Atkinson will also be offering the best in up and coming comedy talent at its very own Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club where, on the first Saturday of every month, the very best live stand–up will come to Southport – with each show consisting of four of the top comedians and one of the finest comperes in the comedy business. Tickets for all these shows are on sale now by calling 01704 533 333 or logging on to www.seftonarts.co.uk.

ORMSKIRK Theatre Company’s next production is the feminist classic Hindle Wakes. The play written in 1912 by Stanley Houghton will be performed at Ormskirk Civic Hall from March 6–9 at 7.30pm. The story is set during Wakes Week in the Northern town of Hindle and Fanny Hawthorn, a lively, determined mill–girl, has spent the weekend in Blackpool with her friend Mary Hollins. At least, that’s what she tells her parents. In fact, she’s been in

Wales with Alan Jeffcote, the wealthy mill owner’s son. When her parents find out, they are determined that Alan should marry her, but Alan, his father, his fiancée and Fanny all have their own ideas on the matter. Fanny shows a spirit way ahead of her time when she demands to be able to decide her own future. For tickets logonto www. ormskirktheatrecompany.co.uk or call 01704 809630.

next month. I have, however, got behind the wheel of its closest cousin, the five door Countryman, the open–top, two–seater MINI Roadster, and a couple of different versions of the vanilla MINI hatchback estates agents up and down the land have loved for more than a decade. There’s nothing that really touches an original Mini for immediate, smile–on–your–face small car fun but I’ve

always liked the new MINI because it’s frisky, good looking and packed with character (even though I’d still take a Suzuki Swift Sport over a Cooper). The Countryman though, was the exception the rule – not only is this Nissan Qashqai rival a bit weird and bloated looking, but it didn’t feel like a MINI when I drove it. To badly misquote Get Carter, it’s a big car but it’s out of shape. The Paceman, though, is like a Countryman that’s been down to the gym to get back into shape – yes, it’s bigger than the normal MINI but it still looks the part, which if you’re in the market for a MINI is what matters. Looks count for an awful lot in MINI land. The Paceman has what it takes, and the Countryman doesn’t.

Railway Approach

REDUCTIONS

HERE’S a thought. The new MINI Paceman is the car the Countryman should have been. For what it’s worth, I think the latest addition to the already expansive MINI range has a name that makes it sound a bit like a personal stereo for people with cardiac problems but most of Britain’s motoring writers have found other things to be cruel about – it’s a worthy enough car, they reckon, but one that’s completely pointless. Why would anyone want a MINI Countryman with less room and fewer doors? Well, I would, and here’s why. Before I go any further I’ve got two things I ought to declare – that I owned not one, but two of the classic Minis, and that I’ve yet to actually drive the Paceman, which goes on sale

SPORT Rampant Waterloo Mariners fall flat in move further clear of relegation zone front of bumper crowd Firwood Waterloo 38 Penrith 27 WATERLOO’S improving form continues following a 38–27 win at home to Penrith, a result which moves them one place further up the table but, of much greater importance, 17 points clear of the relegation zone. This proved a highly entertaining game with Waterloo having the better of the opening session with two penalties from Liam Reeve, the result of sustained pressure affording a 6–0 lead. Unfortunately a poor pass and a bad bounce brought a try for the visitors, Ben Littleton showing great pace to scoot in close the posts, the conversion giving the Cumbrian’s the lead very much against the run of play. It got worse for the home side. Following an exchange of penalties, Reeve succesful for Waterloo, Penrith wheeled a scrum and with Number 8 Ryan

Johnson using the blind side to great effect the Number 8 put Littleton away for his second. In the final play of the half Waterloo eventually got the try they deserved, an overhead arching pass by Liam McGovern putting James O’Brien over, Reeve’s conversion restoring the home side’s lead 16–15 at the interval. In the second period a catch and drive brought a try for Martin Bell with the conversion and a penalty from Reeve putting Waterloo 26–15 ahead. Penrith hit back with a try from Johnson converted by Neil Warnock but tries from McGovern, off a break by Freeman Payne, the outside half off–loading superbly in the tackle and Alex Reed, the replacement forcing his way over from close range, with Reeve slotting one more conversion to seal the win. In the closing minutes the visitors grabbed a try bonus point with a try from Littleton to bring up his hat–trick.

Deventer aims for top ten finish DIRECTOR of rugby Jan Van Deventer thinks his team are now capable of a top ten finish. He said: “I am pleased with the win but more importantly I am more pleased with the sort of rugby we are playing at the moment,” he stated. “We are not the biggest side in this league but we know how to play rugby and having beaten Percy Park last week and Penrith this weekend we have shown what we are capable of. “We are now playing to a pattern, the whole side is switched on to that and we have the confidence to take us through to the end of the season. “Top half of the table is our target.” “We let in two soft tries in that opening half although we were much the better side,” Deventer admitted. “James’ try at the end was no more than we deserved

although we should have been further ahead. “We worked hard in the second period and the three tries were all well taken,” Deventer said. “However I thought the referee allowed Penrith to get away with spoiling tactics. “And although he eventually did send someone to the sin bin he should have sorted it out much earlier.” Waterloo welcome Bradford and Bingley to Blundellsands on Saturday for a game postponed from January 26. “These catch up games are always difficult as quite a few players have made other arrangements as it should have been a free weekend,” Deventer said. “We shall have to look at the situation on Thursday before we select our side.” editorial@champnews.com

Marine 0 FC United 3

MARINE produced their worst performance of the season in front of the biggest crowd of the season (1,282) against an impressive FC United of Manchester outfit that included the familiar names of Neville and Giggs in their squad,writes Dave McMillan. After a quiet opening FC United almost opened the scoring when Cottrell put in a dangerous low pass across the six yard line to Tom Greaves who saw his shot parried away for a corner. Marine took the risk of fielding three debutants and could ill afford to see their main striker, Nick Rogan, limp off after just ten minutes. His replacement, Liam Rice, however soon fired a right footed volley over the bar from 18 yards. The first goal came after 20 minutes as Dave Birch danced through Marine’s static defence before finding Tom Greaves who calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Birch was booked two minutes later for an over zealous challenge. From the resultant free kick Danny Grannon attempted an ambitious overhead kick which cleared the crossbar. Marine were struggling to hold on to the ball and a defensive error on the half hour mark saw Greaves intercept and side step before firing firmly past McMahon to double the lead. This was the cue for smoke flares and fireworks off the pitch. Unfortunately it did not inspire the Mariners. John Shaw produced Marine’s best move of the half when cutting inside from the left, he exchanged passes with Michael Ordish before firing a

United’s Mike Norton latched onto a pass down the right but his shot was intercepted by the calm and impressive Bohan Dixon. Shortly afterwards Norton tried to claim a penalty as he went down rather too easily under challenge from keeper McMahon. Any hopes of a Marine fight back after the break were quickly extinguished. Slapstick defending by Marine saw Jerome Wright gifted the ball with the goal gaping but Grannon eventually cleared. It was, however, only a temporary respite. Wolfenden’s volley hit the post and the ball rebounded invitingly for Greaves to stroke home his hat trick.

The game was effectively over after just 55 minutes. Marine hardly threatened although the industrious Robbie Lawton charged down the keeper’s clearance only to see the ball hit the post as the referee blew for hand ball. Liam Rice also volleyed from the edge of the area but it hardly troubled the keeper. United’s Tierney and Wright continued to threaten the Marine defence with wriggling runs into the penalty area. The scoreline could have been worse for Marine but for the calm reassurance of Bohan Dixon. On this evidence FC United looked like a team that would be very comfortable playing at a higher level. Marine, however, were disorganised and bereft of ideas.

Three new signings make debuts THREE players all made their debut for Marine in the promotion clashon Saturday against FC United. Signing on a month’s loan from Accringon Stanley is central defender and midfielder Bohan Dixon. Dixon, 23, has previously had short spells at Hednesford Town and Burscough but was spotted last year playing amateur football

by former Stanley manager Paul Cook. At 6 feet 4inches he can play in both a defensive or midfield role. Also signing on a month’s loan is Hyde striker Matty Harris. Harris, 19, a centre–forward, has been on Everton’s books but is one of the first products of the Hyde FC academy. The third new signing is

defender Michael Girvan, 20, who joins Marine after spells with Tamworth and Loughborough Dynamo. Girvan was with Wigan Athletic as a youngster. Marine have also confirmed that defender Paul Jones has left the club. Marine manager Kevin Lynch said: “We have picked up a number of injuries at this crucial

stage of the season and to enable me to try and sustain where we are and bolster the squad I have been forced to go into the loan market to sign Bohan and Matty in addition to the signing of Michael. “It was always going to be difficult for the new players to come into the game on Saturday, but I feel that they will do very well for us”

SPECIAL MEASURES SCHOOL ON MEND Jim Sharpe

A MAGHULL school looks certain to be taken out of ‘special measures’ this summer following an Ofsted monitoring inspection. The original decision to put the ‘highly regarded’ St Andrew’s CE Primary School on Special Measures after an Ofsted inspection in September last year shocked not only the staff and pupils, but other schools’ head teachers and local Councillors as well. And neighbouring Deyes High School, which accepts many St Andrew’s children each year, has also praised the school in the past. Head teacher Sue Kerwin told the Champion: “We were caught in a new (Ofsted) framework introduced early last year and under the changes a lot of schools found themselves downgraded.” But St Andrew’s suffered a double whammy in that this new framework was changed yet again in September – just too late for the Maghull school’s inspection which was carried out under the ‘old’ much criticised rules. And even so, the Ofsted inspectors could find no fault in the children’s behaviour, attitude or safety. “We were an ‘old fashioned’ school using tried (teaching) methods,” said Mrs Kerwin. “For whatever reasons we found

Maghull St Andrew’s headteacher Sue Kerwin. ourselves in the worst category you could have. “But a school is about more than results and I don’t think that this counts so far as Ofsted is concerned. I am not complaining – all schools had to operate within the same framework.”

Code1056777

Now though there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. In the published report of the school’s second monitoring inspection it says: “The school has moved forward. Pupils’ achievement is

strengthening as a result in improvements in the quality of teaching and learning. “Furthermore, the school is in a much stronger position to identify the links between teaching, attainment and the progress pupils make.” The inspection report also says the quality of teaching is improving well with 78% of lessons now ‘good or better’ and with a very good relationship between adults and pupils. The report added: “During the inspection there was a purposeful and settled air to the school with pupils excited by many of the topics and activities in lessons.” Crucially the report states: “With the drive and determination of the head teacher (and) the commitment of staff , the school has turned the corner. Everyone is stepping up to the mark and there is a strong momentum for improving the school.” “The school is well poised to continue to improve over the next term and everything is coming together well to suggest that the school is on track to achieve its target date for the removal of special measures in the forthcoming summer term.” Mrs Kerwin said: “I think we do a good job of turning out confident and happy children who are capable of learning – and that applies both before and after Ofsted.”

£5,272,500 spent on 81 middle managers employed by council David Raven

SEFTON Council spent £5,272,500 on 81 ‘town hall middle managers’ who each earned at least £50,000 in the last financial year. While the local authority struggles to balance its books, figures published today (Wednesday) show higher–end pay packages – which include salary, benefits and bonuses for the year 2011/12. A new report reveals Sefton has saved £2million on the total cost of these packages since 2010/11, but there were still 81 staff who earned more than £50,000 – which is ten higher than the national average. According to the Taxpayers’ Alliance, the cost of paying these staff is on average the equivalent of 7.5 per cent of council tax receipts.

Figures reveal employees earned at least £50,000 each in the last financial year TaxPayers’ Alliance chief executive Matthew Sinclair said: “Taxpayers are still paying far too much for bloated bureaucracies that have been established in too many town halls over the last decade. “It is incredible that some councils have even increased spending on high earning staff this year after a decade in which council tax doubled across the country and when every local authority needs to find savings and ease the burden. “In those cases where it is the result of redundancy payments then we need to see the savings soon.” In 1996–97, the average local authority employed seven people

earning more than £50,000. This number rose to 66 by 2006–07 and in 2011–12, the average number of council staff earning more than £50,000 was 71 – more than before the financial crisis. Previous research showed that over the 10 years before the financial crisis, the number of local authority staff with remuneration of more than £50,000 had increased more than three times as quickly as in the private sector. Mr Sinclair added: “Councils must cut spending and should look at pay – one of the biggest items of expenditure – as an area for savings.” david.raven@champnews.com

Racism in Sefton’s schools ‘far from beaten’ warns MP David Raven

NEARLY 250 racist incidents were recorded in Sefton’s schools in the last two years, the Champion can reveal. Data from a Freedom of Information request shows the borough’s schools had 145 reports of racist incidents during the financial year 2010/11 and 94 in 2011/12. After the murder of teenager of Stephen Lawrence the previous government said schools in England and Wales must report all incidents of racist abuse to their local authority. But the Coalition Government has changed the guidance meaning schools have no duty to report the data for racism incidents. The figures also show that some 106 parents cited bullying as a reason to request a transfer for their child during 2011/12. Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson said: “We need to stamp out any kind of A D V E R T I S I N G

Revealed: Shocking number of racist incidents in classrooms racism. That starts in school. Racism in any form is not acceptable, either racist behaviour or racist language. “That’s why the Labour Government introduced the measures for schools to report all incidents of racist abuse. “We need to eradicate racism and the only way to do that is from our schools up. “It needs to be rooted out. “Bullying and intimidation of any kind especially racism is not acceptable and it must be rooted out and dealt with whenever it occurs – including in our schools.” Sarah Soyei, of Show Racism the Red Card said: “The numbers of recorded racist incidents are just the tip of the iceberg. Racism is a very real issue in many classrooms around the country,

but cases of racist bullying are notoriously under reported. Often teachers may not be aware of racism in their classrooms because victims are scared of reporting them out of fear of making the situation worse.” A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it occurs, and particularly in schools, where every child has the right to learn in an environment free from prejudice.” “It is teachers and parents – not central government – that know what is happening in their schools, and they are best placed to deal with racist behaviour when it happens. “We would expect all schools to implement their own processes to ensure they are dealing with racist incidents in the most appropriate way, rather than being bogged down with paperwork from the centre – which can sometimes mean that the most serious cases of racism are not dealt with.”

of judgement about priorities. “The reaction of residents has massively been against this daft idea and I think it was ‘people power’ which caused the change of mind.” Before the Cabinet meeting, fellow Lib Dem Councillor Tony Dawson had pointed out that the amount claimed to be saved by the measure was roughly the same as trimming the Cabinet from seven members to five. “I know which of the two measures the public would support given the choice!” said Cllr Dawson. “If two members of the Cabinet disappeared, residents wouldn’t notice a thing. If the public toilets disappear, hundreds of people would feel trapped at home and unable to venture out.”

AMY Aitchison a Y12 pupil at Maricourt High School, made a very special visit to St George’s RC Primary School last week. Amy is presently completing her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and for her ‘residential’ section of the award, she is going with a group of friends to Africa – to St Raphael’s High School in Sierra Leone.

And Amy thought she would ask the youngsters in Y5 at St George’s to help her by making bracelets as presents to her hosts. So five girls agreed and each Wednesday lunchtime was spent making the bracelets – with just a little help from Amy’s mum, Cathleen Aitchison, who just happens to be a classroom assistant at St George’s. “The girls really enjoyed their time making the bracelets and are looking forward to Amy’s return from Africa when she is going to tell them all about her trip,” she said.

Coalition is Andy’s charity bid failing our hit by saboteurs children says MP SEFTON Central MP, Bill Esterson has accused the Government of failing the area’s children by scrapping plans to re–build Maghull’s three high schools. He said that Deyes, Maghull High and Maricourt High schools were all due to be re–built under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme between 2015 and 2020 only for the Coalition to axe it when they came to power in 2010. “It is a disgrace what this Government has done,” he said. “Young people in Sefton Central have been hit hard by the disastrous policies of this Tory–Lib Dem Government. “Not only have they axed the BSF, which would have seen many of the older schools rebuilt, but they have also axed the Education Maintenance

Allowance and the Future Jobs Fund to get youngsters into employment. We have also seen funding for youth services, youth clubs and activities slashed because of the Tories and Lib Dems. “Their proposals for reforming GCSEs were roundly condemned by teachers and education professionals, forcing Minister Michael Gove into a humiliating U–turn,” said Mr Esterson. And he added: “Instead of preparing our young people by giving them a strong start in life, this Government seems intent on making things as difficult for them as possible. Their policies hurt people in Sefton Central and I will continue to fight them in Parliament as well as here in the constituency.”

Report by

A LOCAL businessman has been left baffled by the repeated sabotaging of his efforts to raise money for a worthy cause. Andy Gore, who runs the Maghull Motor Centre on Liverpool Road North is presently trying to raise money for the James Apter Friendship Fund, set up in memory of a little boy who died of leukaemia. As he specialises in motor tyres Andy has offered to donate £1 to the fund for each tyre sold. To publicise his scheme he had a special banner made by Les French, who owns Caractor Graphics and did the art work at a special price because it was for charity. Andy duly fastened the banner to the chain–link fence in nearby Stafford Moreton Way, having first checked that no planning

permission was necessary because the advertisement is for a charitable cause. However, overnight it was removed. So he had a second banner made and secured it firmly to the fence only for that to disappear as well. Not to be deterred Andy had a third banner made – and even at cut price the exercise had so far has cost him £150. “I might just as well have given that direct to the fund,” he said. “I have no idea who took the banners down or why.” Andy, who has run the business since 1989 and lives locally, added: “I just want to raise money for the James Apter charity and before the Stafford Moreton Youth Centre closed they had no objection to my putting advertisements on the fence – I always made a small donation to them.” Sadly, the latest banner lasted less than 24 hours – overnight it was slashed to ribbons!

‘Patron Saint’ of poets opens dementia centre Jim Sharpe

ROGER McGough, Merseyside poet and former member of The Scaffold band, opened the new £1.8m dementia centre at Maghull’s Parkhaven Trust last week. The new centre, known as the ‘Willow Centre’ provides a range of services to support people with dementia and their carers. At the opening ceremony, Hilary Rowland, Parkhaven chief executive, said they had wanted Roger McGough to officiate since the centre started to be used in September 2011. “The Poet Laureate calls Roger McGough the ‘Patron Saint’ of poets,” she said. “Roger was born in Sefton and is involved with a national dementia charity.” Ms Rowland said most of the £1.8m cost was met by the Parkhaven Charitable Trust, but she thanked Sefton Council, which donated £140,000 for its support right through the project and still fund most of the ongoing revenue costs. “They continue to help us improve peoples’ lives,” she said. “We are proud to be working with Sefton Council.” Roger McGough told invited guests that the opening was a very special occasion. And he said: “Dementia has become an acceptable topic of conversation over the years.”

A gift for Poet Roger McGough from one of the day centre users when he officially opened The Willows last week. Looking on is Parkhaven Trust CEO Hilary Rowlands. Code1056737 A local man, Roger was born in Litherland and went to school at Our Lady, Star of the Sea, before moving up to St Mary’s College in Crosby. “Of course, Maghull was ‘posh’ then,” he said. He also read several of his poems, much to the delight of the guests present. Nearly 100 people come to the centre each week, staying between one to six days a week. Willow Centre staff also provide domiciliary care to folk in their own homes. It is an innovative service, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week providing ‘familiar faces in familiar places’. The centre provides a range of accommodation specifically designed for people with dementia,

rooms being colour coded, light and well signed. Visitors can practice yoga, bake, sing, dance, play games, garden, be read to or use the centre’s own putting green. “It’s an opportunity to have fun, enjoy good company, have a home cooked meal using fresh produce we grow ourselves and have a proper afternoon tea,” said Ms Rowland. The respite (short break) service allows relatives to have a break for longer than a day. The centre employs 34 staff trained to support people with dementia. Parkhaven Trust has achieved an Investor in People Gold Award, recognising the importance the trust gives to training and development.

MP hails ‘victory’ for local pubs Report by

Jim Sharpe

SEFTON Central MP Bill Esterson has claimed that the Labour Party has struck a blow for struggling local pubs. Labour used the First Opposition Day Debate of 2013 to force a Government U–turn, announcing within hours it would back proposals to back beleaguered local pubs. The Coalition Government announced it would support the creation of a statutory code to guide and regulate the relationship between large pub chains – the branded pubs which account for the majority of pubs in the UK – and their tenants and licensees. “This is a victory for ‘locals’,”

said Mr Esterson. “Pubs are vital hubs for communities in this area and valued strongly by local people. But due to the Tory–led Government’s inaction and broken promises on backing small landlords, they are closing at an ever–increasing rate. “The number of pub closures has risen from 12 to 18 a week and more than 200 pubs have been converted into convenience stores in the last two years alone.” Mr Esterson said he was proud that Labour called the debate and that he voted for Labour’s motion. “The reforms aren’t perfect – there is still confusion as to whether they will include a ’free of tie’ option which many local landlords support as it would allow them to buy beer on the open market at the

GOODYEAR

best price. “But it’s a good start and I look forward to working with them to implement the change.” Now Mr Esterson has written to local landlords asking for their views. “We have some fantastic pubs in Lydiate, Maghull and Aintree – pubs that play a real part in the community – and that’s the sign of a good pub. “We need to support these pubs. They are local assets and valuable local employers. “That’s why I have written to landlords for their views on how best we can support them and secure their future in our communities.”

STAFF at Deyes High School have always reckoned it’s a welcoming and friendly place to visit – and now it’s official! The Maghull school has become the first in the country to gain ‘World Host’ status with all of its 100–plus support staff having attended courses and received accreditation. And that means that each member of support staff – clerks and cleaners, cooks to teaching assistants – is now fully up to speed in ‘customer service.’ The scheme, originating in the USA, is normally aimed at the retail sector, but Annette Cunningham, Deyes’ business manager, told the Champion that the principles were exactly the same for a school which deals with people –pupils, parents and visitors – all the time. She said:“We wanted to

improve our customer service to make certain our relations with parents, students and the local community were up to scratch and assist us in sustaining our ‘outstanding school’ status and our standing in the community generally. “We felt that customer service skills apply in a school setting so that we can give a better service generally. We are proud that we can now call ourselves a ‘World Host’ recognised establishment.” Every one of the support staff who took part in the two–day course received a certificate and a badge. Head teacher, Ann Stahler said: “Everybody in a school comes into contact with the public at some time or another – for instance our catering staff – and we thought we all should have customer service skills.” Now the school’s teachers are set to take the ‘World Host’ course as phase two of the programme.

Second reprieve for Blockbuster stores

A TRIO of Blockbuster stores serving Sefton and West Lancashire have been given a second reprieve after administrators announced they would be closing 164 of the troubled DVD retailer’s shops. Last week Deloitte, who were apppointed as administrators for the nationwide DVD rental chain after it suffered financial troubles, said that it would be closing 164 stores across the country as part of a phased programme of closures. They confirmed to The Champion, however, that the company’s stores in Southport, Ormskirk and Maghull were not among the list of new closures, giving them their second reprieve in as many months. Joint administrator, Lee Manning said: “We have continued to review the performance of individual stores since our appointment a

month ago and have concluded that further closures are necessary in order to restructure the company for sale. “We would like to thank the company’s employees for their support and professionalism during this difficult time and we are also grateful for the continued support of customers. We are in discussions with a number of parties interested in purchasing all or parts of the business and will update on progress in due course.” The three stores will continue to trade as usual while administrators progress negotiations with bidders. It follows an announcement by the administrators last month that it planned to retain the “profitable core” of the company while closing less successful stores.

Tough Guy challenge competed... with leg break by David Simister

John Dickson at the start of the Tough Guy Challenge.

AN ACTION man from the borough has managed to raise £800 by taking part in a gruelling cross country challenge for charity – despite breaking his leg in the process! John Dickson, the managing director at car dealership 06 Vauxhall, which has showrooms in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, said he managed to raise £800 for Queenscourt Hospice and Walking with the Wounded by completing the eight mile Tough Guy Challenge despite his injuries. He said this week: “Here at 06 Vauxhall, we are dedicated to showing our support for a good cause, and although I’m hobbling around with the aid of crutches, I’m delighted to have completed the challenge and raised over £800 for such worthy charities. I would like to thank everyone who donated and supported me. “Entering the Tough Guy

Challenge was a great experience and completely worth all the pain. I’m considering entering next year, although my wife might have something to say about that!” Mr Dickson, from Southport, added that he had to traverse ankle–deep mud, wade through the icy lakes and suffer electrocution while completing trials in complete darkness, and that despite fracturing his fibula during the challenge he managed to complete the challenge, set across eight of miles of Staffordshire’s toughest countryside, in two hours and 45 minutes. The contestants also had to deal with sleet, hailstones, ice and a wind chill of–17 degrees, while the event’s organisers also set off tear gas bombs to make the challenge even more disorientating. The Tough Guy Challenge is one of a number of fundraising events the dealership’s staff have taken part in, including supporting the Movember campaign.

Lifesaving defibrillators for fire service Natasha Young

ALL community fire stations and fire engines across Sefton are to be equipped with defibrillators, to help save more lives from cardiac arrests. According to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), a total of 1,318 people in the borough alone died from heart disease between 2008 and 2010, and the charity has now joined forces with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MF&RS) to make urgent help more available in local communities. The Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are being introduced at 26 stations and all other fire service buildings across the whole of Merseyside as part of the scheme for use on staff or members of the public, and will be in place by February 28. They will also be introduced on every operational fire appliance. The equipment issues an automatic electric shock to the heart when the adhesive pad is placed on a person’s body in the correct location and in the prescribed manner. MF&RS has worked closely with the BHF, the North West Ambulance Service and the NHS to make the scheme possible. Deputy chief fire officer, Phil Garrigan, said: “Although we have defibrillators at some locations there is not one on every community fire station and we wanted to change that to help our communities. People from our communities use our fire stations’ meeting

To request an ‘Information Pack’ or to register for the Recruitment Evening call 0151 520 2348 during the mentioned opening hours or email hq@maghull.org. The Squadron Commander, Flt Lt Ian Taylor commented: “We welcome young people from the surrounding areas to attend our open evening to

Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend also. “2348 has dedicated and hard working staff who enable our cadets to travel to overseas camp, complete Duke of Edinburgh Awards and walk out of the Squadron, not only with great experiences but with qualifications too.”

rooms and gyms on a regular basis and also visit the sites. However, this measure will help not just the public but it will be available for our staff too. We would like to thank the British Heart Foundation who supported and part funded this phase of the project. “The second phase of the project will see defibrillators, identical to those used by the North West Ambulance Service, placed on every frontline fire appliance for use at incidents. Although our frontline firefighters already have ‘First Person on Scene’ and ‘Trauma Care’ qualifications, all of our staff will be trained to use this new equipment.” Ken Fretwell, the fundraising volunteer manager for Merseyside and Cheshire at the British Heart Foundation, added: “It’s brilliant to see all the emergency services in Merseyside, including our firefighters, equipped to save the life of someone who has had a cardiac arrest. “During cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without defibrillation means a patient’s chance of survival decreases by about 10 per cent – they’re absolutely vital in the chain of survival. “Any initiative like this that helps put defibrillators in places where they’re needed the most will undoubtedly save lives.” British Heart Foundation volunteers Jean and Graham Cox, who are based on the Wirral, and Tommy Callagher, based in Liverpool, helped to raise funds for the defibrillators.

next month. I have, however, got behind the wheel of its closest cousin, the five door Countryman, the open–top, two–seater MINI Roadster, and a couple of different versions of the vanilla MINI hatchback estates agents up and down the land have loved for more than a decade. There’s nothing that really touches an original Mini for immediate, smile–on–your–face small car fun but I’ve

always liked the new MINI because it’s frisky, good looking and packed with character (even though I’d still take a Suzuki Swift Sport over a Cooper). The Countryman though, was the exception the rule – not only is this Nissan Qashqai rival a bit weird and bloated looking, but it didn’t feel like a MINI when I drove it. To badly misquote Get Carter, it’s a big car but it’s out of shape. The Paceman, though, is like a Countryman that’s been down to the gym to get back into shape – yes, it’s bigger than the normal MINI but it still looks the part, which if you’re in the market for a MINI is what matters. Looks count for an awful lot in MINI land. The Paceman has what it takes, and the Countryman doesn’t.

Railway Approach

REDUCTIONS

HERE’S a thought. The new MINI Paceman is the car the Countryman should have been. For what it’s worth, I think the latest addition to the already expansive MINI range has a name that makes it sound a bit like a personal stereo for people with cardiac problems but most of Britain’s motoring writers have found other things to be cruel about – it’s a worthy enough car, they reckon, but one that’s completely pointless. Why would anyone want a MINI Countryman with less room and fewer doors? Well, I would, and here’s why. Before I go any further I’ve got two things I ought to declare – that I owned not one, but two of the classic Minis, and that I’ve yet to actually drive the Paceman, which goes on sale

SPORT Waterloo rampant Firwood Waterloo 38 Penrith 27 WATERLOO’S improving form continues following a 38–27 win at home to Penrith, a result which moves them 17 points clear of the relegation zone. Waterloo had the better of the opening session with two penalties from Liam Reeve affording a 6–0 lead. Ben Littleton then scored two

tries for the visitors before Waterloo got a try from James O’Brien over, Reeve’s conversion restoring the home side’s lead 16–15 at the interval. In the second period a try for Martin Bell with the conversion and a penalty put Waterloo 26–15 ahead. Penrith hit back with a try but tries from McGovern and Alex Reed sealed the win. The visitors grabbed a bonus point with another try.

HAVE YOU MADE A WILL?

MARINE produced their worst performance of the season in front of the biggest crowd of the season (1,282) against an impressive FC United of Manchester outfit that included the familiar names of Neville and Giggs in their squad,writes Dave McMillan. The first goal came after 20 minutes as Dave Birch danced through Marine’s static defence before finding Tom Greaves who calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Marine were struggling to hold onto the ball and a defensive error on the half hour mark saw Greaves intercept and side step before firing firmly past McMahon to double the lead. John Shaw produced Marine’s best move of the half when cutting inside from the left, he exchanged passes with Michael Ordish before firing a low shot which was well saved by Spencer. Any hopes of a Marine

who works in Ellesmere Port, visited there on Friday morning only to be confronted with a waterlogged pitch with pumps being used in a vain attempt to remove the surface water. “The groundsman who was in attendance said that that there was ‘no chance of it happening on this Saturday or the near future as the drains were blocked and in desperate need of repair.’ “It was obvious then that the game was not going to be played. “I contacted the league secretary with this information late on Friday afternoon and was told that it should be switched to Maghull. “I then put this to Ellesmere Port who told me that it was too late as all their players had been informed of the postponement as early as the Friday

morning. Neither us, the match officials or the league had been notified of this at that time! “When the league secretary contacted them and requested Ellesmere Port to make the switch they then said that it would be too expensive for them to make the journey to Maghull in addition to paying the match officials. “I then offered that Maghull would assist with those costs but this was also refused. “It was obvious then that they did not want to play the game. “It is absolutely ridiculous given the back log of fixtures there will be at the end of the season.” Maghull are at home on Saturday when they entertain high flying Cammell Lairds at Old Hall Field.

fightback after the break were quickly extinguished. Slapstick defending by Marine saw Jerome Wright gifted the ball with the goal gaping but Grannon eventually cleared. It was only a temporary respite. Wolfenden’s volley hit the post and the ball rebounded invitingly for Greaves to stroke home his hat trick. The game was effectively over after just 55 minutes. Marine hardly threatened although the industrious Robbie Lawton charged down the keeper’s clearance only to see the ball hit the post as the referee blew for hand ball. Liam Rice also volleyed from the edge of the area but it hardly troubled the keeper. United’s Tierney and Wright continued to threaten the Marine defence with wriggling runs into the penalty area. The scoreline could have been worse for Marine but for the calm reassurance of Bohan Dixon. Marine were disorganised and bereft of ideas.

DESPITE all of their desperate efforts to get the game played, Maghull’s scheduled Carlsberg West Cheshire League Division One encounter at Ellesmere Port last Saturday was called off on Friday afternoon due to the waterlogged condition of their opponents’ pitch. The Maghull chairman was far from happy as the original arrangement had been that in the event of this happening the match should be switched to Maghull’s Old Hall Field enclosure. He said: “We contacted Ellesmere Port on Thursday evening and were told, much to our surprise, that the game would almost certainly go ahead as planned. “Port’s ground is notoriously heavy so one of our committee members,

A WASTE OF SPACE! Report by

David Raven

AN UNUSED dumping ground has been converted into a community garden. The Hinton and Lawler community garden project recently launched in Litherland is run by One Vision Housing in partnership with The Conservation Volunteers, residents, and pupils from Lander Road Primary School. Volunteers have cleared the site, planted a selection of trees including cherry, pear, and plum, and have installed three large raised beds. Eventually there will be eight of these beds, each containing a selection of fresh vegetables and herbs. Community development officer at One Vision, Nikki Bonner, said: “Each week, whether rain or snow, the school children and tenant volunteers have came down to the garden and set to work.

Racism in Sefton’s schools ‘far from beaten’ warns MP EXCLUSIVE by

David Raven

NEARLY 250 racist incidents were recorded in Sefton’s schools in the last two years, the Champion can reveal. Data from a Freedom of Information request shows the borough’s schools had 145 reports of racist incidents during the financial year 2010/11 and 94 in 2011/12. Southport’s MP John Pugh admitted that racism ‘is far from beaten’ and called for all schools to be ‘beacons of tolerance and enlightenment’. After the murder of teenager Stephen Lawrence the previous government said schools in England and Wales must report all incidents of racist abuse to their local authority. But the Coalition Government has changed the guidance meaning schools have no duty to report the data for racism incidents. The figures also show that some 106

under reported. Often teachers may not be aware of racism in their classrooms because victims are scared of reporting them out of fear of making the situation worse.” A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it occurs, and particularly in schools, where every child has the right to learn in an environment free from prejudice.” “It is teachers and parents – not central government – that know what is happening in their schools, and they are best placed to deal with racist behaviour when it happens. “We would expect all schools to implement their own processes to ensure they are dealing with racist incidents in the most appropriate way, rather than being bogged down with paperwork from the centre – which can sometimes mean that the most serious cases of racism are not dealt with.”

Revealed: Shocking number of racist incidents in classrooms parents cited bullying as a reason to request a transfer for their child during 2011/12. Mr Pugh said: “Even if we accept that reporting rules impact on the statistics, it is clear that racism is far from beaten. “Compared with some boroughs Sefton does not have a very multi–ethnic population but there is no degree of ugly racism that is acceptable. We should want our schools to be a beacons of tolerance and enlightenment.” Sarah Soyei, of Show Racism the Red Card said: “The numbers of recorded racist incidents are just the tip of the iceberg. “Racism is a very real issue in many classrooms around the country, but cases of racist bullying are notoriously

YOUNG people are set to benefit from a new Liverpool–based university technical college which will be linked up with the Seaforth Docks development. Peel Ports hopes that the University Technical College – UTC – which is due to open in 2014, will give young people in the Bootle and Seaforth region the specific skills they need to find employment in the port industries. Port bosses estimate that the region’s transformational SuperPort plans will generate up to 35,000 jobs over a 20–year period. Plans include Peel Ports’ development of a series of logistics hubs along the Manchester Ship Canal, as well as a new in–river container terminal at the Port of Liverpool, Liverpool2, which is due to be operational in 2015. Aimed at 14 to 19–year–olds, the UTC will deliver a mix of academic and technical

education specifically geared around the engineering and logistics skills necessary for the low carbon economy and SuperPort industries in Liverpool. The involvement of universities and employers means that students will benefit from work placements, guest speakers, an employer–led curriculum, as well as involvement in real–life projects. The new UTC will also run longer term times and operate business hours to help students prepare for the world of work. Howard Sloane, group head for Peel Ports said: “Investing in our next generation workforce is essential for what will be a SuperPort of global significance. “The Liverpool Low Carbon and SuperPort UTC is a genuinely exciting opportunity for local young people because it will allow them to access the specific skills and qualifications they need to pursue successful careers within these growth industries.”

Library campaigners hopeful CAMPAIGNERS are still hopeful that the borough’s threatened libraries can be saved, after cabinet members deferred their decision on cost–cutting proposals. The results of a public consultation into the Sefton Council’s option to close seven out of 13 libraries in the borough, as it strives to save more than £50million over the next two years, were discussed at last Thursday’s (February 14) cabinet meeting. Libraries in Ainsdale, Birkdale, Churchtown, Aintree,

College Road in Crosby, Litherland and Orrell are threatened with closure if the option goes ahead, but six lead petitioners spoke out to save them during the meeting. People battling to stop the three libraries in the Southport area from shutting down also took part in a demonstration outside Southport Town Hall. The cabinet decided to defer the decision until its next meeting on February 28 to allow more time to fully consider matters raised during the meeting.

Diabetes roadshow proves a success with shoppers Report by

Stephanie O’Connor

A ROADSHOW aiming to highlight the risks of developing type 2 diabetes proved a hit with shoppers in Bootle who took advantage of the opportunity to learn more about the condition which is believed to affect millions of people in the UK – many of them undiagnosed. The week–long roadshow, which visited the Strand, Shopping Centre, was organised by Merseyside Diabetes Network and South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group, together with Diabetes UK North West. It used a Videowall showing the risk factors of type 2 diabetes and the action that can be taken to prevent it. Dr Janet Atherton, Sefton’s Director of Public Health, said: “We are delighted with the success of the roadshow. “The aim of the film is to get the message across that being overweight or obese is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes and that people can take action to try and prevent it. “Diabetes is the number one threat to health in the UK. Approximately 3.75 million people have it and around seven million have a high risk of getting it. “Unmanaged diabetes can cause serious health problems such as blindness, kidney failure, heart disease and stroke. So it is important to know how to recognise it and how to lower your risk of getting diabetes.” During the week the advert was shown more than 500 times and trained staff gave out Diabetes UK information and leaflets, so people could take the information away and

very honoured to have had the opportunity to sing onboard.” HMS Illustrious heads back to sea to practise her key skills as the nation’s high readiness helicopter carrier. On current planning, she is due to be retired from operational service at the end of 2014. Captain Martin Connell, ‘Lusty’s’ commanding officer said: “It is with a considerable tinge of sadness that we leave Liverpool for what might be the last time. We have all been made to feel incredibly welcome and Liverpool has lived up to its reputation as one of the friendliest, most vibrant and welcoming places for a ship such as HMS Illustrious to visit. “I know that the forthcoming Battle of the Atlantic commemorations will further tighten the bonds between the Royal Navy and this great city and I am sure that the Fleet Flagship HMS Bulwark and the other ships in company will be afforded the same great welcome we have had.”

established in too many town halls over the last decade. “It is incredible that some councils have even increased spending on high earning staff this year after a decade in which council tax doubled across the country and when every local authority needs to find savings and ease the burden. Savings “In those cases where it is the result of redundancy payments then we need to see the savings soon.” In 1996–97, the average local authority employed seven people earning more than £50,000. This number rose to 66 by 2006–07 and in 2011–12, the average number of council staff earning more than

£50,000 was 71 – more than before the financial crisis. Previous research showed that over the 10 years before the financial crisis, the number of local authority staff with remuneration of more than £50,000 had increased more than three times as quickly as in the private sector. Mr Sinclair added: “Councils must cut spending and should look at pay – one of the biggest items of expenditure – as an area for savings. “This research looks at the progress being made by every local authority in the UK in slimming down bureaucracy. “Councillors need to insist that their local authority does more to find savings and cut back on staff costs.”

SEFTON Council spent £5,272,500 on 81 ‘town hall middle managers’ who each earned at least £50,000 in the last financial year. While the local authority struggles to balance its books, figures published today (Wednesday) show higher–end pay packages – which include salary, benefits and bonuses for the year 2011/12. A new report reveals Sefton has saved £2million on the total cost of these packages since 2010/11, but there were still 81 staff who earned more than £50,000 – which is ten higher than the national average. According to the Taxpayers’ Alliance, the cost of paying these staff is on average the equivalent of 7.5 per cent of council tax receipts. TaxPayers’ Alliance chief executive Matthew Sinclair said: “Taxpayers are still paying far too much for bloated bureaucracies that have been

A GROUP of volunteers joined forces to continue the challenge of cleaning the strip of canal that runs through Netherton. This time round the group were joined by children from Grange Primary School’s eco group, who helped collect litter and plant crocus bulbs along the bank to add some springtime colour to the area. The volunteers, who work out of the L30 Community Centre, have now been cleaning the canal, with the help of the Canal & River Trust and Sefton Council, since June 2012. Their haul so far includes more than 180 bags of rubbish along with bikes, cones, motorcycles,

toilets and kitchen sinks. Liz Bentley, services manager at the centre, said: “The main aim of the project is to enable people to enjoy the canal again and restore some sense of pride back into the area along with giving people the opportunity to become active in their community and take some ownership of the canal and surrounding area.” Future clean–ups will include painting under Fleetwoods Lane bridge, cleaning the seated area at the bottom of the bridge, sowing wild flowers along the bank and looking at starting a canoeing club for all ages.

Action Fraud allows residents to report incidents online or via a dedicated phone number and is expected to free up police resources. In some cases Action Fraud will transfer callers straight back to the local police force, such as an investigation where a crime is in action. For instance, when there is a known offender, a crime is happening at that time or if there is a vulnerable victim involved. However, it will retain investigations in such incidents as advance fee frauds, banking and credit industry fraud, online shopping and auctions and computer software service fraud. Detective Chief Inspector Steve Fell of Merseyside Police said: “Every police force is changing to use Action Fraud as their fraud and internet crime reporting service – this helps us to free up police resources to focus on the actual investigations. “We don’t want Merseyside residents to think that we won’t answer their calls in relation to fraud offences, as in most cases we will still

New hub will take public’s calls and free up police resources be carrying out the investigations, especially where a crime is in action. However all fraud incidents will be recorded centrally by Action Fraud and in some cases they will investigated on a national level. “This central point of information will enable us to identify seemingly unrelated incidents, trends and ultimately solve crimes and identify networks of criminals. “We want to make it easy as possible for people to report crimes and we don’t want fraudsters to get away with it. “Even if you don’t lose money, it is important that you report it to Action Fraud – your information can help to root out fraudsters and prevent future attacks.” Jamey Johnson, head of Action Fraud, added: “Fraud is not a victimless crime, it can devastate lives and it’s vital we take strong action to prevent people falling foul of criminals who prey on the vulnerable.

“Following a successful pilot, by April 2013 every police force in England and Wales will be using Action Fraud to report incidents of fraud and internet crime in their area. “Action Fraud is already the UK’s one–stop–shop for fraud advice and reporting, and has helped more than 300,000 people deal with the consequences of fraud and internet crime. “Rolling out the service will free up police time and resources and allow us to build an accurate national picture to lead the fight against fraudsters.” Fraud and internet crime can be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week Action Fraud’s website at www.actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling the dedicated phone number 0300 123 2040 during office hours. The most convenient way to report a fraud is online and reporting takes an average of 20 minutes.

Action man John OPEN TO THE PUBLIC goes for broke! Part of Exsel [Int] CIC

Tough Guy challenge competed... with leg break

John Dickson at the start of the Tough Guy Challenge.

AN ACTION man from the borough has managed to raise £800 by taking part in a gruelling cross country challenge for charity – despite breaking his leg in the process! John Dickson, the managing director at car dealership 06 Vauxhall, which has showrooms in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, said he managed to raise £800 for Queenscourt Hospice and Walking with the Wounded by completing the eight mile Tough Guy Challenge despite his injuries. He said this week: “Here at 06 Vauxhall, we are dedicated to showing our support for a good cause, and although I’m hobbling around with the aid of crutches, I’m delighted to have completed the challenge and raised over £800 for such worthy charities. I would like to thank everyone who donated and supported me. “Entering the Tough Guy

Challenge was a great experience and completely worth all the pain. I’m considering entering next year, although my wife might have something to say about that!” Mr Dickson, from Southport, added that he had to traverse ankle–deep mud, wade through the icy lakes and suffer electrocution while completing trials in complete darkness, and that despite fracturing his fibula during the challenge he managed to complete the challenge, set across eight of miles of Staffordshire’s toughest countryside, in two hours and 45 minutes. The contestants also had to deal with sleet, hailstones, ice and a wind chill of–17 degrees, while the event’s organisers also set off tear gas bombs to make the challenge even more disorientating. The Tough Guy Challenge is one of a number of fundraising events the dealership’s staff have taken part in, including supporting the Movember campaign.

Lifesaving defibrillators for fire service Natasha Young

ALL community fire stations and fire engines across Sefton are to be equipped with defibrillators, to help save more lives from cardiac arrests. According to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), a total of 1,318 people in the borough alone died from heart disease between 2008 and 2010, and the charity has now joined forces with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MF&RS) to make urgent help more available in local communities. The Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are being introduced at 26 stations and all other fire service buildings across the whole of Merseyside as part of the scheme for use on staff or members of the public, and will be in place by February 28. They will also be introduced on every operational fire appliance. The equipment issues an automatic electric shock to the heart when the adhesive pad is placed on a person’s body in the correct location and in the prescribed manner. MF&RS has worked closely with the BHF, the North West Ambulance Service and the NHS to make the scheme possible. Deputy chief fire officer, Phil Garrigan, said: “Although we have defibrillators at some locations there is not one on every community fire station and we wanted to change that to help our communities. People from our communities use our fire stations’ meeting

To request an ‘Information Pack’ or to register for the Recruitment Evening call 0151 520 2348 during the mentioned opening hours or email hq@maghull.org. The Squadron Commander, Flt Lt Ian Taylor commented: “We welcome young people from the surrounding areas to attend our open evening to

Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend also. “2348 has dedicated and hard working staff who enable our cadets to travel to overseas camp, complete Duke of Edinburgh Awards and walk out of the Squadron, not only with great experiences but with qualifications too.”

rooms and gyms on a regular basis and also visit the sites. However, this measure will help not just the public but it will be available for our staff too. We would like to thank the British Heart Foundation who supported and part funded this phase of the project. “The second phase of the project will see defibrillators, identical to those used by the North West Ambulance Service, placed on every frontline fire appliance for use at incidents. Although our frontline firefighters already have ‘First Person on Scene’ and ‘Trauma Care’ qualifications, all of our staff will be trained to use this new equipment.” Ken Fretwell, the fundraising volunteer manager for Merseyside and Cheshire at the British Heart Foundation, added: “It’s brilliant to see all the emergency services in Merseyside, including our firefighters, equipped to save the life of someone who has had a cardiac arrest. “During cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without defibrillation means a patient’s chance of survival decreases by about 10 per cent – they’re absolutely vital in the chain of survival. “Any initiative like this that helps put defibrillators in places where they’re needed the most will undoubtedly save lives.” British Heart Foundation volunteers Jean and Graham Cox, who are based on the Wirral, and Tommy Callagher, based in Liverpool, helped to raise funds for the defibrillators.

A great chance for first-time buyers to move into their dream home There’s never been a better time for first time buyers to snap up their dream home at Keepmoat’s sought-after Regency Park development in Bootle

A range of other exceptional two, three and four bedroom homes is also available at the development, which continues to prove extremely popular with families, young professionals and first time purchasers.

A special finance scheme currently available at the stunning development ends very soon, so househunters looking for a new, luxurious first home are advised to act quickly to take advantage.

Jen Brown, Keepmoat Regional Sales Manager, said: “Regency Park is a thriving development, within easy reach of the city centre.

The government-backed scheme, called FirstBuy, means purchasers need only fund 80% of the original property price themselves, with the remaining 20% funded by an equity loan from Keepmoat and the government’s Homes and Communities Agency.

“The FirstBuy scheme is just one of the finance options available at the development, which are helping purchasers make their budgets stretch further. It has already enabled more than a dozen first time buyers to buy a stunning home here – giving them a fantastic start to a life of property ownership.

A beautiful new two bedroom Marquess semi-detached home with garden is available for £99,995, but using the scheme it could be yours for just £79,995.

“Unfortunately, the FirstBuy scheme ends soon, so purchasers need to move quickly to avoid missing out on this fantastic opportunity.”

This lovely property offers space and style in abundance. It boasts a well-equipped kitchen/diner, a light airy living room with French doors opening out onto the rear garden, a convenient downstairs WC, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with contemporary suite and tiling.

You can see the Marquess for yourself by visiting the Regency Park Showhome at Balliol Road, Bootle L20 7EA between 10am – 5pm Thursday to Sunday and 10am – 6pm on Mondays. For more information, please call Tracy Clarkson on 0151 909 2497 or visit keepmoat.com

next month. I have, however, got behind the wheel of its closest cousin, the five door Countryman, the open–top, two–seater MINI Roadster, and a couple of different versions of the vanilla MINI hatchback estates agents up and down the land have loved for more than a decade. There’s nothing that really touches an original Mini for immediate, smile–on–your–face small car fun but I’ve

always liked the new MINI because it’s frisky, good looking and packed with character (even though I’d still take a Suzuki Swift Sport over a Cooper). The Countryman though, was the exception the rule – not only is this Nissan Qashqai rival a bit weird and bloated looking, but it didn’t feel like a MINI when I drove it. To badly misquote Get Carter, it’s a big car but it’s out of shape. The Paceman, though, is like a Countryman that’s been down to the gym to get back into shape – yes, it’s bigger than the normal MINI but it still looks the part, which if you’re in the market for a MINI is what matters. Looks count for an awful lot in MINI land. The Paceman has what it takes, and the Countryman doesn’t.

Railway Approach

REDUCTIONS

HERE’S a thought. The new MINI Paceman is the car the Countryman should have been. For what it’s worth, I think the latest addition to the already expansive MINI range has a name that makes it sound a bit like a personal stereo for people with cardiac problems but most of Britain’s motoring writers have found other things to be cruel about – it’s a worthy enough car, they reckon, but one that’s completely pointless. Why would anyone want a MINI Countryman with less room and fewer doors? Well, I would, and here’s why. Before I go any further I’ve got two things I ought to declare – that I owned not one, but two of the classic Minis, and that I’ve yet to actually drive the Paceman, which goes on sale

SPORT Rampant Waterloo Mariners fall flat in move further clear of relegation zone front of bumper crowd Firwood Waterloo 38 Penrith 27 WATERLOO’S improving form continues following a 38–27 win at home to Penrith, a result which moves them one place further up the table but, of much greater importance, 17 points clear of the relegation zone. This proved a highly entertaining game with Waterloo having the better of the opening session with two penalties from Liam Reeve, the result of sustained pressure affording a 6–0 lead. Unfortunately a poor pass and a bad bounce brought a try for the visitors, Ben Littleton showing great pace to scoot in close the posts, the conversion giving the Cumbrian’s the lead very much against the run of play. It got worse for the home side. Following an exchange of penalties, Reeve succesful for Waterloo, Penrith wheeled a scrum and with Number 8 Ryan

Johnson using the blind side to great effect the Number 8 put Littleton away for his second. In the final play of the half Waterloo eventually got the try they deserved, an overhead arching pass by Liam McGovern putting James O’Brien over, Reeve’s conversion restoring the home side’s lead 16–15 at the interval. In the second period a catch and drive brought a try for Martin Bell with the conversion and a penalty from Reeve putting Waterloo 26–15 ahead. Penrith hit back with a try from Johnson converted by Neil Warnock but tries from McGovern, off a break by Freeman Payne, the outside half off–loading superbly in the tackle and Alex Reed, the replacement forcing his way over from close range, with Reeve slotting one more conversion to seal the win. In the closing minutes the visitors grabbed a try bonus point with a try from Littleton to bring up his hat–trick.

Deventer aims for top ten finish DIRECTOR of rugby Jan Van Deventer thinks his team are now capable of a top ten finish. He said: “I am pleased with the win but more importantly I am more pleased with the sort of rugby we are playing at the moment,” he stated. “We are not the biggest side in this league but we know how to play rugby and having beaten Percy Park last week and Penrith this weekend we have shown what we are capable of. “We are now playing to a pattern, the whole side is switched on to that and we have the confidence to take us through to the end of the season. “Top half of the table is our target.” “We let in two soft tries in that opening half although we were much the better side,” Deventer admitted. “James’ try at the end was no more than we deserved

although we should have been further ahead. “We worked hard in the second period and the three tries were all well taken,” Deventer said. “However I thought the referee allowed Penrith to get away with spoiling tactics. “And although he eventually did send someone to the sin bin he should have sorted it out much earlier.” Waterloo welcome Bradford and Bingley to Blundellsands on Saturday for a game postponed from January 26. “These catch up games are always difficult as quite a few players have made other arrangements as it should have been a free weekend,” Deventer said. “We shall have to look at the situation on Thursday before we select our side.” editorial@champnews.com

Marine 0 FC United 3

MARINE produced their worst performance of the season in front of the biggest crowd of the season (1,282) against an impressive FC United of Manchester outfit that included the familiar names of Neville and Giggs in their squad,writes Dave McMillan. After a quiet opening FC United almost opened the scoring when Cottrell put in a dangerous low pass across the six yard line to Tom Greaves who saw his shot parried away for a corner. Marine took the risk of fielding three debutants and could ill afford to see their main striker, Nick Rogan, limp off after just ten minutes. His replacement, Liam Rice, however soon fired a right footed volley over the bar from 18 yards. The first goal came after 20 minutes as Dave Birch danced through Marine’s static defence before finding Tom Greaves who calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Birch was booked two minutes later for an over zealous challenge. From the resultant free kick Danny Grannon attempted an ambitious overhead kick which cleared the crossbar. Marine were struggling to hold on to the ball and a defensive error on the half hour mark saw Greaves intercept and side step before firing firmly past McMahon to double the lead. This was the cue for smoke flares and fireworks off the pitch. Unfortunately it did not inspire the Mariners. John Shaw produced Marine’s best move of the half when cutting inside from the left, he exchanged passes with Michael Ordish before firing a

Marine debut player Bohan Dixon gets some close attention Picture by Susan Nugent. low shot which was well saved by Spencer. United’s Mike Norton latched onto a pass down the right but his shot was intercepted by the calm and impressive Bohan Dixon. Shortly afterwards Norton tried to claim a penalty as he went down rather too easily under challenge from keeper McMahon. Any hopes of a Marine fight back after the break were quickly extinguished. Slapstick defending by Marine saw Jerome Wright gifted the ball with the goal gaping but Grannon eventually cleared. It was, however, only a temporary respite. Wolfenden’s volley hit the post and the ball rebounded invitingly for Greaves to stroke home his hat trick.

The game was effectively over after just 55 minutes. Marine hardly threatened although the industrious Robbie Lawton charged down the keeper’s clearance only to see the ball hit the post as the referee blew for hand ball. Liam Rice also volleyed from the edge of the area but it hardly troubled the keeper. United’s Tierney and Wright continued to threaten the Marine defence with wriggling runs into the penalty area. The scoreline could have been worse for Marine but for the calm reassurance of Bohan Dixon. On this evidence FC United looked like a team that would be very comfortable playing at a higher level. Marine, however, were disorganised and bereft of ideas.

Three new signings make debuts THREE players all made their debut for Marine in the promotion clashon Saturday against FC United. Signing on a month’s loan from Accringon Stanley is central defender and midfielder Bohan Dixon. Dixon, 23, has previously had short spells at Hednesford Town and Burscough but was spotted last year playing amateur football

Harris, 19, a centre–forward, has been on Everton’s books but is one of the first products of the Hyde FC academy. The third new signing is
