INSIDE THIS WEEK: Tommy launches his dream golf academy

LEADING golfer Tommy Fleetwood has launched his own golf academy in Formby which he hopes will provide opportunities for juniors to take up the sport, while also helping to broaden the game’s appeal. The inaugural Tommy Fleetwood Academy will open its doors at Formby Hall Golf Club, where the Ryder Cup star learned to play and it will be led by his first coach, Norman Marshall. Fleetwood hopes to use his academy to help teach youngsters about golf’s discipline and

etiquette, whilst also making the game more fun and accessible to kids “From a young age, sport and golf, in particular, have brought me a lot of happiness and many friends,” said Fleetwood. “Golf has taught me many valuable lessons along the way, lessons that I continue to learn each and every day. “My family and I are now truly grateful to be in a position where I can give something back and help kids who are in a similar position to me when I was growing up.

CELEBRATING

THE team responsible for tackling youth crime in Sefton has been given a ‘Requires Improvement’ rating by inspectors. HM Inspectorate of Probation conducted a routine inspection of Sefton Youth Offending Team (YOT) in February and found it was delivering an ‘inconsistent service’ and gave it its second-lowest grade. Inspectors found staff and senior managers were committed to delivering highquality provision, but more robust systems and processes are needed to support this ambition. Chief Inspector of Probation Dame Glenys Stacey said: “Sefton YOT does have some areas of strength, including a skilled and committed workforce supporting young people to turn away from crime. “However, we would have liked to have seen greater progress since our last inspection in 2013. The YOT needs to gain a deeper understanding of the children and young people that it works with, and use its own data to improve performance.” Inspectors found many children and young people involved with the YOT had been excluded from school or had special

education needs. In a sample of cases, more than half of children and young people had specific education, employment or training needs – senior leaders should have been aware of this fact but it was only uncovered during the inspection. To make matters worse, education and employment representatives were missing from the YOT’s Management Board. For the past 18 months, there has been no education representative from the local authority, and the attendance of the employment and learning lead has been sporadic. Provision Sefton YOT’s work with children and young people subject to court orders or who were being dealt with outside the court system was mixed. Inspectors found staff did not always assess cases thoroughly to analyse the safety and wellbeing of children and the risk of harm they could pose to others. Assessments were only completed to an

adequate standard in around half of the inspected cases. The YOT should do more to involve other agencies, such as the police and children’s social services. In one case, an inspector noted: “The planning to keep a child safe did not involve the young people’s social worker enough. The plan didn’t go far enough in terms of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the child, so if it was implemented, it would have been unlikely to make a difference.” Specialist services were under pressure, with children and young people facing 18week waits for mental health services. Inspectors reported better provision for substance misuse referrals, with most children and young people seen within five days. There was also good support from the YOT and Catch22, a not-for-profit organisation, for those involved in serious organised crime. While inspectors were pleased to see the YOT had an improvement plan in place, they were less impressed with the poor level of detail to monitor and track progress. Continued inside

A SEFTON councillor wants a review of the borough’s dog enforcement scheme. John Pugh, recently re-elected for the Kew ward in Southport, wants the authority to ‘sort out’ how by-laws are enforced in parks following claims of increasing tension between dog owners and NSL enforcement officers. NSL is contracted by the authority to enforce local by-laws but, according to some observers, park signs warning of the rules are either ‘vandalised, removed or lack clarity’. In October, a dog walker in Southport revealed she was fined £75 after she let her 12-year-old Jack Russell off the lead on a small patch of grass known as St George’s Gardens - opposite Sainsburys on Lord Street. The surprised pet owner claimed that due to a lack of signs in the area, she was unaware of the rules. In January, council chiefs withdrew a £50 fine handed out to a Bootle pensioner, Maureen Sanders, who was walking her dog, Sorenon, on a lead deemed to be ‘too long’. Cllr Pugh said: “Sefton’s new dog laws could be tested in court as growing numbers of owners claim they are being unfairly punished. “However, angry and shocked owners have claimed that signage is missing or unclear and that law abiding citizens are being penalised. Right across the borough there is a real sense of grievance. “Because the officers move from site to site they cannot and are not encouraged to distinguish between an individual who has had no chance to see a sign and a serial offender who doesn’t give a

damn. This is a untenable approach if you can enter a park without seeing an obvious sign or if, as the council admits, signs have been vandalised or removed. “To make matters worse there is no proper appeal system other than the law courts. A worried pensioner often will pay up no matter how unjust the penalty rather that risk the expense of court action and the council seem to be relying on that. “Nobody is disputing the policy of ensuring play areas and the like are clear of the scourge of dog fouling and dogs should always be under control, but you cannot leave it vague which areas are dogfriendly and which aren’t. “Despite advanced publicity that is what is happening in places and even a well intended scheme needs to look like natural justice or the courts will overrule it.” Encourage A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “We actively encourage good dog ownership and introduced a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in 2017 to support this, following detailed and extensive consultation with the public. “The order has been widely advertised in the local press, online and via the Local Authority's own social media channels, while thousands of signs have been placed in parks, cemeteries, coastal areas and along main roads throughout the borough. “Traffic light style signage clearly details which areas are designated as either off-lead, on-lead or no dog zones. “If in doubt of the rules, dog owners can easily check details of the PSPO online via www.sefton.gov.uk/gooddogcode. “Failure to comply with the Order can result in a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75.”

Gardens open to public

Dementia Action Week to be marked with event at pool DEMENTIA Action Week is being marked with an information sharing session at Formby Pool. The Alzheimer’s Society’s branches across the UK are holding their ‘Ask Us Anything’ campaign to mark Dementia Action Week, which runs from May 20 to May 26. The campaign shows research that despite almost all of us knowing someone affected by the condition, two-thirds of people living with dementia report feeling isolated and lonely. In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes so small acts of kindness such as calling a relative with dementia, visiting a neighbour or becoming a Dementia Friend, can help towards creating a dementia-friendly generation. Determined The Sefton branch of the Alzheimer’s Society are holding an information stand at Formby Pool on Elbow Lane tomorrow (Thursday, May 16) from 9.30am to noon. Linda Lawson from the Alzheimer’s Society said: “We all have a role in Sefton to help create a dementia-friendly generation, changing the way people think, talk and act about dementia.” “We are determined to make sure no-one with the condition has to face a future alone. So please do pop into Formby Pool and we will be pleased to answer your dementia-related question.”

AN informal wildlife garden in Hightown will be opening its gates to the public this weekend. The garden at number 75 Blundell Road (owned by Shirley and Phil Roberts) will be opened in conjunction with two other gardens in Blundell Avenue, numbers 11 (Karen Rimmer) and 5 (Denise and Dave Ball) to raise funds for the National Garden Scheme which sees private gardens across England and Wales open to the public for charity, with donations given to a range of local and national causes. They will be serving cakes and teas and will have plants for sale on Vicar Jan Ashton from St Stephen’s Church with the CREO dance company dancers at the recent Hightown Festival

Knees-up at Hightown Festival! VISITORS flocked to Hightown Festival which was held earlier this month. The event took place across three venues, St Stephen’s Church Hall, the Altcar Rifle Range and the Hightown Club and featured per-

formances, stalls, games, food and drink. Georgia Gaudie, whose CRE Dance Company performed at the festival said: “Hightown Festival was our very first performance event, giving our performers a

chance to showcase their hard work. Hightown Festival is an annual event bringing everyone together to enjoy a fun weekend! “It was such a fantastic village weekend and everyone really had a great time together.”

We’ll address YOT inspectors key recommendations, says council boss From page 1

Dame Glenys said: “Sefton Council is going through a period of reorganisation, which will affect many services including the YOT. “I hope this report and our recommendations will help Sefton YOT to make improvements and deliver a more effective youth offending service.” Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton’s cabinet member for communities, said in response to the report: “We recognise that we have areas that we need to focus on but, despite reducing funding from government, we have some real key strengths which we’re going to build on to ensure that we can make improvements and deliver a more effective youth offending service.

“We have a committed workforce that wants to do the best for our children across the borough, and we believe that by focusing our efforts on offering the right support, in the right ways and at an earlier stage will help deter young people coming into the system. “Our early intervention and prevention model is new and still bedding in but we believe that we have the building blocks in place to develop a better approach that will help us improve positive outcomes and life chances for our young people communities. “We will now work with partners to fully address the findings of this report, building on our areas of good practice whilst focussing on the key areas for improvement.”

“We want to give them the same opportunity to learn and enjoy the game that I love and be able to start their own journey, all while growing the game the way I believe it should be. “My wife Clare and I are therefore so proud to be starting our ‘Tommy Fleetwood Golf Academy’ at Formby Hall Golf Club, the place where I grew up playing golf.” Fleetwood launched the academy last week when he was hosting the British Masters at Hillside Golf Club, Southport - an event which drew bumper crowds. Tommy added: “As this region welcomed some of Europe's leading

Christine Ruth from the NGS said: “The house at number 75 was built on sand dunes, and the first task for garden owners Shirley and Phil was to barrow in 120 tonnes of topsoil - not an easy task. “From those early days 38 years ago, the garden has gradually developed and evolved, to now include roses, and a pergola, and a small courtyard, a hobbit house bug hotel, and a midsummer night's dream fairy glen.”

Transform your garden with an easigrass artificial lawn TM

NO MUD, NO MES S, NO MOWING

Tidal power could provide energy to one million homes

Plan your outdoor space with easigrassTM

Report by Tom Martin

Whether you are looking to freshen up a lawn or you are putting together a whole new garden, investing in easigrass is a great way to transform outdoor space.

LIVERPOOL City Region could become a world leader in tidal power - if an ambitious project ever gets off the ground, according to Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram.. The ambitious proposal by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram could deliver thousands of jobs for local people and provide energy for up to one million homes. Rotheram wants to harness the tidal power of the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay, which experts tell him could have the potential to generate up to four times the energy of all of the wind turbines in Liverpool Bay. Speaking about the Mersey Tidal Power project, he said: “The unique geography of the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay makes us one of the only places in the UK with the potential to generate plentiful, predictable, green tidal electricity. “Making this project a reality would create thousands of jobs for local people in the city region and that’s why we’re moving forward to the next stage, which is

easigrass is becoming ever popular due to its low maintenance, realistic look and dream garden appeal. There’s no mud or mess, no cutting or weeding and it creates beautiful outdoor spaces for family and friends to enjoy.

...if scheme to harness power of River Mersey ever gets off the ground! creating an outline business case to demonstrate the viability of a tidal power project. “This is exactly the kind of transformational project that devolution and working together as a city region enables us to pursue. And because devolution gives us powers and funding to shape the skills we need for our local economy it means we can ensure that our children and young people, who might still be at school today, can be equipped with the skills they need to benefit from these jobs and to thrive in this exciting green industry. “As the whole world seeks to move beyond its dependence on carbon, we have an opportunity to build on our existing strengths in tidal research to develop a world-leading tidal power industry.

“Our low carbon sector already generates £2 billion a year and supports 22,000 jobs across wind, solar and hydrogen energy. With our vision and the right backing from government we can add tidal to the mix and become Britain’s Renewable Energy Coast.” It is thought that a tidal energy scheme for the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay could have the potential to generate up to four times the energy of all of the wind turbines in Liverpool Bay, which would be enough to power up to a million homes, 500 football stadiums, or send an electric train around the world 3554 times. This next phase of the tidal project will see the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority work with a team of industry-leading technical and financial advisers, with extensive experience of delivering major infrastructure projects, to develop the outline business case over the next 12 months. The outline business case will provide the Combined Authority with a detailed and robust technical, financial and environmental evaluation of the viability of a Mersey Tidal Project, to consider progressing to the next stage.

Firwood Hall

Stunning Formby home named best in the North West Report by Danielle Thompson A FORMBY property has been named as the Best Individual New Home in the LABC North West Building Excellence Awards. Firwood Hall took the honours at a prestigious awards ceremony held in Manchester. The LABC Building Excellence Awards showcase buildings and design teams that have faced complex technical or construction issues and building site constraints. The awards also celebrate innovative, smart solutions across the North West region of England. Sefton Council's Building Control team advised over compliance with the building regulations during construction of the property, which is owned by Mike McComb. The contractors Creative Design & Build (North West) Ltd and the Project Architects RAL Architect Ltd were all also recognised. Stuart Barnes, Sefton Council's head of economic growth and housing, said: “This has been a long term, unique and complex project, and taken its time to reach delivery. “During this period, there have been a

number of design alterations, client led and technical, that have required a collaborative approach between all parties, including the Council’s Building Control team. The results of the ambition of the land owner and the quality of the design and execution have rightly been recognised, and the LABC award is a worthy accolade.” Paul Everall CBE, chief executive at LABC, added: “These awards are different. They are about quality and standards. No other building awards look at how well buildings are put together from start to finish and the skills and competencies of those who design and construct them. “We are very proud of everyone involved – they show the way ahead for the industry.” Rob Anderson, from RAL Architects, said: “Delivering a home of this quality requires a collaborative effort between architect, builder and the local authority with all parties appreciating the end goal but, above all it requires a client with vision who is willing to put significant trust in the project team. “RAL are extremely pleased with the end result and are delighted to have the efforts of all involved recognised with an LABC Building Excellence Award."

They found items including polystyrene boxes, sweets, sandwich and crisp packets, and bottle tops. Their next beach cleans will be held in Formby in June and September. Lisa Pearson, head of marketing for Arriva North West said: “As an organisation, we are always looking at ways in which we can do our bit for the planet. We know that using the

We’re extremely proud of our volunteers getting out and about to help the cause.”

Andy Laverick, Marine Conservation Society Sea Champion added: “We are very excited to be working with Arriva this year as part of our mission to keep Britain’s coastlines litter-free. “There was a great turn out at Formby Beach, and we hope that even more people can turn up to help out at the next clean up in June.”

The headstone which was found on Formby Beach

Headstone found in rubble on Formby beach A ‘LONELY’ headstone' has been spotted amongst the rubble on Formby Beach. Champion reader Debbie Cameron from Formby revealed: “The headstone was found among the World War Two Blitz rubble that was dumped on the coast in 1942. “I found out a lot about Samuel Tolson, who had 10 children and was a tea merchant in Liverpool. Jane was his second wife and Dinah was one of his daughters. It was sad to see this lonely stone on the shoreline.” A spokesperson for the National Trust commented on the find: “Due to wave action, rubble buried inside the dunes near to the car park, is often seen on the beach. Every year, the National Trust puts a lot of money and resource into managing this rubble. But how did it get into the dunes in the first place? “Originally, it formed part of Harrington Barracks, that were built at Formby Point back in the 1940s. Infantrymen of the King’s Regiment (Liverpool) who went through basic training here took part in the D-Day landings. The bricks you see formed their sleeping quarters, canteens and stores. The barracks were demolished after the war and the demolition

rubble ended up being recycled as substrate for a beach car park and caravan park. “In 1967, the National Trust bought Formby Point to protect it from further dumping and inappropriate development, safeguarding its future as a place of conservation and recreation for all. “It’s not just bricks and rubble that are appearing from the dunes and onto the beach. The sharp-eyed visitor might also notice the dark brown tobacco waste which is exposed as the sand dunes are eroded by the waves. After the Second World War, smoking was still widespread and the tobacco industry was booming. “When the British Nicotine Company Ltd needed somewhere to dump their leftover tobacco leaves, they decided on disused asparagus farmland lying behind a section of dunes at Formby Point. “Wagons full of denicotinised waste arrived every day between 1956 and 1974 - the council granted permission for this only because the company had already started using the area as a dumping ground. Dune stabilising plants like sand sedge and marram grass don’t grow very well on it, instead it is carpeted in nettles.”

A ‘Cyber Champions’ scheme aimed at teens is being rolled out at schools across Merseyside in a bid to reduce internet crime. Merseyside Police are behind an initiative which will promote digital literacy and e-safety, supported by professional services company KPMG. Similar initiatives have been adopted in other areas of the country where thousands of children, parents and senior citizens have participated in workshops. PCSOs have already been joined by specialists from KPMG, visiting schools across Merseyside to carry out workshops for children and their parents and guardians about staying safe online. Each school then designates their own ‘Cyber Champions’. As well as helping other pupils, the role gives the Cyber Champions a sense of responsibility and the opportunity to develop their own interpersonal skills, and gain knowledge in cyber security - crucial skills valued by future employers. Reports of cybercrime have increased by more than 80% in the last three years in Merseyside. From April 2016 to March 2017 there were 2,586 cyber crimes reported; from April 2017 to March 2018 there were 3,474, and in the last 12 months, from April 2018 to March 2019, there were 4,744.

Police project aims to help young people avoid being victims of internet crime Detective Chief Inspector Helen Bennett, from Merseyside Police’s Digital Forensics Team, said: “We know that reports of cybercrime have increased in recent years. This is in part due to increased awareness of the issue but the rise in use of apps and social media platforms means that there are more ways than ever for criminals to try to exploit people on the internet. That is why it is so important to ensure young people are equipped to avoid becoming the next victim. “This is a great initiative and is a win-win for all involved. The young Cyber Champions themselves get to develop skills that will set them in really good stead for the future; their fellow pupils will get the knowledge to prevent themselves from becoming victims of cybercrime; and we as a police force have seen some really important messages spread widely by an enthusiastic group of young volunteers. “By engaging with schools we will also hear about any trends regarding youngsters that our Cyber Crime officers might need to keep an eye on.” If you are interested in children at your school becoming Cyber Champions, email digitalpcso@merseyside.pnn.police.uk

100-year-old tells of why it’s important to have active social life ‘It’s much better to get out and meet people rather than staying in and watching television’

Folk Nights

Report by Tom Martin

A SEFTON centenarian who still enjoys an active social life is urging others to do the same so they don’t fall into social isolation. Alma Jones, who recently turned 100years-old, makes the most of free classes and social groups where she lives in Maghull because she says it’s better than ‘staying inside and watching television’. She is backing an initiative by Sefton Council, called Year of Friendship, which looks to publicise community groups and organisations that promote healthy bodies and minds. Sefton Council’s campaign is being supported by a number of groups across the borough, including Bootle Bucks Inclusion Football Club, the Merseyside Sports Partnership (MSP) and South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (SSCCG).

Alma celebrating her 100th birthday.

The importance of making lasting relationships all while keeping fit and active has certainly not been lost on Alma, who regularly attends an Active Ageing Falls Prevention class. Bootle-born Alma regularly joins other elderly residents at St Andrews Church, Maghull for the weekly classes where skilled instructors help people aged over 65 to develop muscle strength and improve balance, with the aim of preventing potentially serious falls or accidents. However Alma says she benefits just as much from the social inclusion aspect of the course. She said: “For one thing the Active Ageing course gets your arms and legs moving, which maybe would not be hap-

pening otherwise but also we’re socialising, which a lot of people don’t do when living on their own. “Some people just stay in their house, just watching television and not speaking to anyone. “So I make a point of going out every day, coming to this class, and keep on socialising. “Often I will invariably meet somebody and talk to somebody which you should do when you’re older. “I love coming to the class. I have always been very active and throughout my life I’ve done lots of exciting things like rockclimbing and made sure I always kept fit by swimming, cycling and general good living.�

Nine political parties and two individual candidates will contest the elections on Thursday, May 23 to elect the North West of England’s eight Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). The elections will take place despite Brexit uncertainty. Initially, the elections were not planned as the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union was set for March 29. With the Brexit deadline now delayed until the autumn, we will still be a EU member when the elections for the full EU parliament get underway and the UK is required to put forward parliamentary candidates. More than five million electors across the North West will have the opportunity to vote. The count and declaration of results for the North West region will take place in Manchester on Sunday, May 26, after polls close across Europe. People will not be able to vote in these elections unless they have ensured they are on the Electoral Register. European Union citizens living in the North West, are eligible to vote in the European Parliamentary elections in either the UK or in their country of origin but not both. The following parties and individual candidates are standing in the north west: Change UK - The Independent Group: Andrea Cooper, Dan Price, Arun Rammoy Colin Banerji, Michael Stewart Taylor, Phillippa Olive, Victoria Ann Desmond, Andrew Paul Graystone, Elizabeth Malisa Knight.

H’boro stadium safety officer fined £6,500 for his role in tragedy Families of 96 victims label court decision ‘shameful’ and say ‘it’s only £67.70 per life’ Report by Tom Martin A STADIUM safety officer at Hillsborough has become the first person to be convicted of an offence relating to the 1989 tragedy after he was fined £6,500. Former secretary of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, Graham Mackrell, 69, failed to ensure there were enough turnstiles to prevent large crowds building up. Despite the conviction, families of the 96 victims have criticised the severity of the punishment, describing it as “shameful" and highlighting the fact that the fine only amounts to £67.70 per life lost. As well as the fine, Mackrell was also ordered to pay £5,000 towards the prosecution costs. The Champion reported last month how he was found guilty after an 11-week trial at Preston Crown Court of failing to discharge a duty under the

Graham Mackrell outside Preston Crown Court

Health and Safety at Work Act in respect of ensuring there were enough turnstiles to prevent unduly large crowds building up outside the ground. The court heard there were seven turnstiles available at the Hillsborough Stadium for the 10,100 Liverpool fans with standing tickets. In a statement, Mackrell said he was "grateful" the judge had

recognised "my conduct did not cause or contribute to the death of any person or cause any person to be injured on that tragic day." He added: "Despite that, I do wish to take this opportunity to make clear my sympathy to all those impacted by this appalling tragedy. “No-one should have to go through what the families have experienced." The Champion also reported last month how the jury in the trial was unable to reach a verdict over match commander David Duckenfield, 74, who denied the gross negligence manslaughter of 95 Liverpool fans. A hearing to decide whether Mr Duckenfield will face a retrial is expected to be held next month. 96 Liverpool fans died following the crush in the central pens of the Leppings Lane terrace at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989.

Rhys bats away the competition to win national table tennis title By Danielle Thompson A TALENTED young table tennis player was delighted to add a national championship title to the Cadet National Cup gold he won earlier this season. In-form Range High School pupil Rhys Davies, 14, from Southport, won the Cadet Boys’ Doubles title alongside Naphong Boonyaprapa at the PG Mutual Cadet & Junior National Championships. The pair justified their top seeding by defeating third seeds Thomas Rayner and Ben Piggott 3-2 (5-11, 11-2, 9-11, 12-10, 11-9) in the final. Earlier, the partners had been rivals in the semifinals of the singles, with top seed Naphong triumphing over third seed Rhys by a 4-0 (11-6, 11-7, 12-10, 15-13) scoreline, leaving Rhys to settle for bronze. Rhys said: “I was very happy at the end of the

doubles and I thought we played quite a clever game. “ I didn’t play very well in the singles but he played unbelievably. He was changing things every point and I didn’t know what to do.” In the older Junior events, unseeded Rhys reached the quarter-finals

of the singles, where he was beaten 4-1 by eventual champion Ethan Walsh. In the Mixed Doubles, Rhys and Anaya Patel were beaten in the quarter-finals by Naphong and Millie Rogove, while Rhys and Peter Smallcombe went out in the first round of the Boys’ Doubles.

MP Bill Esterson with campaigners at Aintree Retail Park.

MP backs women’s pension campaign Report by Kenny Parker A GROUP campaigning against changes to women’s pension rights were backed by Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson in a protest at Aintree Retail Park. The Women Against State Pension Injustice (WASPI) campaign was set up to achieve ‘fair ’ transitional state pension arrangements for all women born in the 1950s affected by the changes to the state pension law brought about by legislation introduced in 1995 and 2011. The Liverpool branch of the campaign spoke to shoppers outside M&S in Aintree on Saturday, May 4. Mr Esterson said that 3.8 million women will be affected by the raising of the pension age and that there is real anger among women who feel cheated out of their state pension. “WASPI are asking to be treated fairly and for

transitional arrangements to be made, not the sudden, cliff edge approach, which the government is imposing,” he said. “I fully support their demands for a fair approach and for support for women (and men) affected by the changes. “This is causing real financial hardship and it cannot be right to treat women, this way, many who have worked in vital low paid jobs. “And it cannot be right to expect women who have physically demanding jobs including as carers and teaching assistants to carry on working way past the retirement age they were promised.” The changes increased state pension age for women to 65 (the 2011 Pension Act includes plans to increase it to 66) and while the group says it agrees with equality for sexes, it takes issue with what it says is the unfair way the changes were implemented – “with little or no personal notice; faster than promised, and no time to make alternative plans.” “Retirement plans have been shattered with devastating consequences,” the group says.

LETTERS to the Editor

Political parties are totally fragmented over the EU Why are some of those people who voted to leave the EU in 2016 so afraid of a second or confirmatory public vote on any deal the Government comes up with, with regards to the EU? So much has changed since the 2016 Referendum; certainly the circumstances now are not what I thought they would be back in 2016. Whether you are a die-hard leaver, or equally a die-hard remainer, or anything in between, surely a people’s vote, second referendum, or confirmatory vote, whatever you want to call it, is the most democratic way for everyone to affirm or reaffirm their position or even change their minds under these chaotic circumstances. We are all so much more knowledgeable now about the issues involved in either leaving the EU altogether, or having a partial union with the EU, or any other “solution” that comes up, that we are all in a better position to make a judgement on our own individual position with regards to the EU - a much better position, it seems to me, than the political parties who are supposed to represent us, and who are totally fragmented over what we do about our membership of the EU. It’s not about keeping having referendums

until we get what we want whatever our individual position, as that will never work anyway. It’s about a final say for the people of this country based on current facts and with the much better information we have today, and did not have in 2016, over what we want to do - stay or go. We are very lucky to live in a democratic country where we can freely vote for what we believe in, and we should use it. So I say, ask the people again, as this is true democracy. John Coles, Southport

May I thank several people who came to my aid when I had a nasty fall in Churchtown. I had gone for a walk, tempted by the lovely weather, when I tripped on a raised flag and hit the floor very hard, hurting both knees and hands. I was unable to get up but it did not matter as several people stopped their cars to come to my aid. A young lady from a nearby hair salon also rushed across. I was helped up and taken across the road to the salon. Their help made a stressful situation so much better and helped me get over the trauma of it. This 77-year-old will not forget their kindness.

We’ll make a great Borough of Culture! Having read the Champion’s article on the forthcoming Borough of culture plan for Sefton, I for one think it is a good idea. From one end of borough to the other, we have both groups and buildings that can do us proud. We have fine Grade One and Two listed buildings within Sefton, and two wonderful town halls. Indeed, the outgoing Mayor, and his staff arranged

Llandudno has a yearly Victorian weekend, with steam engines on show. Perhaps Sefton could do the same? Fred McCann, former Mayors Attendant

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt. The Stroke Association rebuilds lives and with your help we can support even more stroke survivors. It couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is wear purple in May, and every penny you raise will help us support stroke survivors. You can wear purple to work, or at community event - wherever you are, we’re asking you to turn all your activities purple during the

Make sure the price is right when flogging your old jewellery I am a retired police officer and I’d like to bring people’s attention to what strikes me as nothing more than the abuse of residents who sell their old jewellery. Last week, I went to take jewellery that I no longer wore to a jewellery shop, one of many in Southport that buys gold or silver off you, and they offered me what I initially thought was a reasonable price of £375. But when I went to another jeweller in town, I was offered £540... a staggering total of £165 more! I was so shocked I went back to the first one to tell them and they just said that different places offer different prices. I was appalled - they weren’t even ashamed of their behaviour. So, if you plan to flog your old jewellery, all I can say is, be careful and do your research, or it could cost you a great deal of money! Infuriated, Southport

Whether that means wearing purple for a month or a day, or hosting a dress down day at work, You can go as purple as you want, so why not: Host a purple party with purple food - think blackcurrant squash, blueberry tea and beetroot salad!

Reduced rate beach Dementia injustice passes should be offered to residents can’t go on I was pleased to read Duncan Snell’s letter regarding the Bank Holiday parking fiasco at Ainsdale beach, and vainly hope the council will take note. I live in Southport and I am disgusted that I am charged £5 to use the beach for half an hour’s walk. A couple of years ago I discovered I could purchase a yearly £45 beach pass which I duly did in the July, blithely believing it was for 12 months, only to find it actually expired weeks later in the October. No-one in the council I spoke to thought to tell me the pass was for six months and about to run out! Nevertheless, last year I paid again, this time in the April for the six months car access, but then lost

count of the number of times, having driven the seven miles from my home, the beach was closed, often for no apparent reason, (I always check the high tide times first). I like to walk my dogs on this beach and being a pensioner, find it difficult walking from the car park to the entrance then a further 200 meters to the ‘dogs permitted’ area particularly with two excited dogs champing at the bit. I strongly believe residents should be offered a beach pass at a reduced rate. But then, I suppose, if they couldn’t care less about our much needed visitors, what hope have mere locals?

There are 18,294 people living with dementia in Merseyside and that number is set to rise in the next few years. It is a travesty that people with dementia are waiting up to a year in hospital for a care home place, or ending up in A&E with an infection that good social care could have prevented. The injustice of people battling to get quality dementia care, on top of battling the devastating effects of dementia can’t go on. With further delay to the Green Paper on social care, we must find a new way through the impasse. That is why Alzheimer's Society is calling for urgent investment in high-quality, personalised care through a dedicated Dementia Fund. I would like to urge your readers to join our campaign at alzheimers.org.uk/fixdementiacare Steve Green, Alzheimer’s Society area manager, Merseyside

Special events are lined up for Armed Forces Day Parade 30% OFF ALL WARM ROOFS

ORGANISERS of the Armed Forces Day parade to be held in Southport next month, have released details of the event. SSAFA Merseyside veterans are hosting the parade on Sunday, June 30 and are looking for more younger veterans to take part in the parade which is organised by veterans who give up their free time for the event. Their aim is for members of the public to show its support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. A Commemoration Dinner at the Prince of Wales Hotel on Lord Street will also be held on June 29 for any person or groups who would like to attend. A spokesperson for the SSAFA confirmed there will be a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight WW2 Dakota flypast on Armed Forces

Day as well as a full size WWI Sopwith Camel Biplane. He said: “The Armed Forces Day parade will start with a Drumhead Service at 10am in the Princess Diana Memorial Gardens, with the Band of the King's Division leading the way, starting at 10.30am on Chapel Street. They will be taking the salute at Southport Town Hall. “The Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside will be taking the salute on the steps of Southport Town Hall. In attendance there will be the Mayor of Sefton and the High Sheriff of Merseyside along with other local dignitaries. “There will be modern and vintage military vehicles in front of The Atkinson, Army, Air and Sea Cadets and their band as well as live music from various acts and living history groups. “People will be able to see Armed Forces personnel 238 SQN 156 Regiment The Royal

Logistic Corps at their recruitment stands, and 208 Field Hospital and 103 Regiment Royal Artillery with their field gun leading the parade along with Merseyside Police Mounted Division. “We are also trying to get more younger veterans involved with the parade, which many just watch from the side lines, especially the younger age groups. Veterans are men and women who have left Her Majesty's Armed Forces, young or old. “All veterans and standard bearers are welcome including any in wheelchairs and scooters. If you have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces regulars and reservists of all ages can take part in the parade. There is no need to wear a medal or suit if you do not have any, or to be part of an exservices organisation. For more information about the parade or dinner, call 07906020138.”

Music fan to be remembered in fitting way after friends organise live charity concert Report by Danielle Thompson A MUSIC concert is being held this weekend to raise funds in memory of a Southport dad who passed away in September. 'Geoffest' will be held from 4.30pm11pm this Saturday (May 18) at Victoria Park in Southport in memory of Geoff Spencer, who worked at Bridge Inn Community Farm in Formby. It was organised by his colleagues and will feature local rock bands Fag Ash Lil, Building Giants, L’il Devil and Raw Deal will be playing along with Hayburner, the band Geoff created with the students from Bridge Inn Community Farm. The 54-year-old ran Bridge Inn's Rock School as well as woodwork, horticultural and animal care classes. All of the funds they raise in his memory will be split between funding defibrillators that will be placed in Sefton and the Joe Strummer Foundation, which provides support to projects that create empowerment thorough music. Carl Craven, one of the organisers, said: “Geoff passed away unexpectedly in September leaving behind his wife Karen and children Hannah and Jack; our love and thoughts are forever with them. “Geoff was a much-loved friend and colleague and his passing leaves a huge void in our hearts and lives. He worked at Bridge Inn Farm for many years and was also the football coach for The Southport Special Athletes. He was a man of infinite

patience and generosity and he was generous with the most precious of gifts anyone can give, his time. He was always ready to listen, to help or advise, to encourage and to comfort. “He was a man of great humour and warmth with his love of Volkswagons, Manchester United, fishing and music, whether playing guitar or going to gigs and it is his love of music we wish to celebrate. “His positive attributes are too many to list, his smile and his friendship will be the ones we all miss most and we are honoured to have had him as not just a colleague and mentor but as a special and

wonderful friend. As our lives are diminished by his passing so they are richer for having known a man who had such a positive aspect on all who came into contact with him. He leaves a huge legacy.” Tickets are £10 and £5 for under-14s. Car parking is available on the park at £5 per car. Refreshments are available from Willow Catering and The Cellar Bar but due to licensing regulations, the public cannot bring their own alcohol into the park.

YOUNGSTERS and adults alike were invited to take part in a competition which celebrated a Southport shopping arcade’s 120 year history. Yvonne Burns, centre manager at Wayfarers Arcade off Lord Street said: “To celebrate our special birthday, we wanted to find out how people saw this Grade II Victorian treasure which we are so fortunate to have right in the centre of Southport. “Schools and local people were asked to paint, draw, take photographs or write about how they saw Wayfarers and there was a brilliant response. “Last week, we held a presentation event with the Mayor of Sefton, Councillor Dave Robinson, in the arcade and students and adults that had taken part in

the competition were invited. The Mayor presented the trophies and certificates. “Particular thanks go to Merchant Taylor’s Girls School, Peterhouse School and Stanley High School whose students really got behind the project. It was so interesting seeing how these young people saw this iconic building.” The winners for the 11-16 year olds category were Mia Harvey (first) from Merchant Taylors Girls School; Sam Macarney (second) from Peterhouse School and Scott Ogden (finalist) from StanleyHigh School. In the over-17s category (open to all members of the public) the winner was Anna Petrie and second place went to Michelle Caspenenti, who both won trophies.

Cash boost available to groups helping in fight to tackle crime Mending rather than replacing is better for your wallet and the planet I'VE just had a pleasant surprise. Well, two actually. I carry around in my trouser pocket one of those cheap small torches. You know, one of those little silver ones about two and a half inches long which cost about one pound with several LEDs, including three batteries. I find them useful in all kinds of situations. One drawback they have is that after a while they usually start going a bit wonky and need a sharp rap on a hard surface to get them to shine brightly. Another is that it is very easy to lose the thing when pulling something else, like a hanky, out of your pocket. This isn’t the end of the world - for one pound, a replacement is no great hardship. But I was sorry when I lost the one recently, because it had defied the odds and continued to work properly. And I had just replaced its batteries. So I bought a replacement. Now the trousers I had been wearing were due for a wash and I had transferred all the pocket's contents to a fresh pair - or so I thought. Imagine my chagrin when I put the newly washed trousers to dry - and felt a lump in one pocket. Yes, the poor old cheap torch had been left - and been thoughtfully washed and rinsed. More in hope than expectation, I pressed its button - and Hey Presto! -it shone out as well as ever. It really is surprising how much pleasure a small thing like that can bring. So at the moment I possess two working small torches - which means I don't have to worry about losing one, which I most certainly will do. But this incident set me thinking. Obviously my little torch was better constructed than I imagined, for waterproof it must be. Now as I said, it matters little really how long this particular item survives - but other, more expensive items often do not fare so well these days. How many folk still get their TVs mended if they go wrong? How many parts of modern cars cannot be repaired? When, for that matter did anybody last darn a pair of socks? No, you throw away the offending item and buy a new one. This has been brought home to me on my motor cruiser ‘Manxman.’ She was built before the throwaway age and not that long ago if, for instance, if the water pump went you could take it apart and with the aid of a repair kit, put it back to use again. Not now - sling the defective one and buy new is the modern way. Which isn’t that awful if you have a modern water pump (though it is extremely wasteful). But in the absence of repair kits, folk such as I are now becoming hard-put to find a replacement article for the entire thing. Mind you, this is a problem future owners of craft such as mine won’t have to face, for it’s only a matter of time before the use of diesel is banned altogether. And I cannot see how an electric set-up could be installed in a boat such as mine without almost totally rebuilding the whole thing at a cost which would make the exercise prohibitively expensive. I suppose I am being a little ambitious in advocating mending things. Ham-fisted me is, for example, very good at taking old alarm clocks to pieces - trouble being that putting the pieces back together again always defeats me. But my point remains. Being able to go down to the shop with your broken radio or whatever to get it repaired must be a better thing for your wallet (and the planet) than automatically junking it.

SEFTON organisations which help to prevent crime and protect communities are invited to apply for a share of a fund to help their aim. This is the fifth year that Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy has opened the Crime Prevention Fund, which is used to help charities, community groups and social enterprises. A total of £135,000 is available from the fund and the Commissioner is inviting groups to submit bids of between £5,000 and £25,000 for innovative community safety projects or schemes that will run over the next 12 months.

For the last three years, the Commissioner has specifically urged organisations that are working to tackle the underlying causes of serious and organised crime to apply for funding and this has again been made a priority for this round of funding. She said: “Serious and organised crime is, for many people in our region, their greatest concern. It blights our communities, bringing misery and harm and causing decent, ordinary people to live in fear. Police allocates “Merseyside extensive resources to tackling this issue, but we cannot simply ‘police’

our way of this issue. We need to work with all our partners, particularly those in the community and voluntary sector to address the deepseated, and often complex, causes of serious violence. “Local people understand their communities better than anyone and know what will work best to improve their area. We are fortunate to have a wealth of voluntary and community groups which are working hard to prevent people, especially young people from getting involved with this type of crime and I want to hear from them. “Through the Crime Prevention Fund, I want to see what more can be

done to tackle this issue and with these grants I hope I can give organisations which are trying to address the root causes of this issue a valuable cash boost which will help to make a difference to communities across Merseyside.” Last year, 14 grassroots organisations were chosen to share £135,000 from the Crime Prevention Fund from a total of 75 bids submitted. Many of the projects focused on preventing young people from getting involved with crime. The closing date for applications is 5pm on June 24. To apply, visit the website at www.cfmerseyside. org.uk/funds/crime-prevention-fund

by Danielle Thompson MEMBERS of a Southport family pulled on their running shoes to raise more than £1,000 in memory of a loved one by taking on the John West Liverpool Spring 10k. Property manager Geoff Bowles, from Southport, died aged 77 in December after a long battle with Lewy Body Dementia, leaving behind his wife Yvonne. Geoff ’s son Matthew Bowles along with daughter-in-law Rebekah Bowles, stepson Adrian Dolan, stepdaughter Yvette Lasham and son-in-law Kevin Lasham, took on the challenge on Sunday, May 5, which they all completed in under an hour. They have raised £1,010 so far for the Lewy Body Society, a national charity which aims to raise awareness of the disease within healthcare as well as informing members of the public about the symptoms, and funding university research into the illness. Dementia with Lewy Bodies shares mental symptoms, such as confusion and loss of memory, with Alzheimer’s disease and

motor symptoms, such as gait and slow movement, with Parkinson’s disease and is often misdiagnosed. Rebekah said: “We ran the 10k in memory of our wonderful Geoff who passed away at Christmas. He was an amazing father,

stepdad, husband, grandfather and friend. “He had Lewy Body Dementia, a less commonly known form of the disease, and the most important thing to us now, is to raise as much awareness and money for the fantastic charity as we can. “Thank you to everyone for supporting us and your donations. It is going to make a massive difference and as a whole family we are so grateful. “We were absolutely thrilled to have done it. What a team - we are so proud to have raised money for a wonderful charity in honour of our angel.”

Greens call on council to declare a ‘climate catastrophe’ MEMBERS of Sefton Green Party are calling on the new council to declare a climate emergency as its first act after the local elections. The party, which saw increases in its share of the vote across the borough in the elections on Thursday, May 2, are writing to the leaders of all the political groups to ask for them to table a motion declaring a climate emergency at the next Full Council meeting on Thursday, June 20. The declaration would aim to give local people a mechanism to hold the council to account on climate action. It is part of a nationwide movement for every council to declare a climate emergency in response to the UN’s warning we have until 2030 to take positive action to limit climate catastrophe. Sefton Green Party co-ordinator Mike Carter said: “The UN has warned we have until 2030 to limit climate breakdown but the Government continues to drag its feet and fail to take the action needed to meet that challenge. “That’s why in Sefton we must lead

by example, put party politics to one side and do our bit. “Climate breakdown will affect everyone in Sefton. Everyone’s livelihood, every business, everyone’s health and wellbeing ultimately relies on the environment. “This is reason enough to do this, however going carbon neutral will also lead to huge economic gains. Retrofitting housing stock to make it energy efficient, switching to electric vehicles, making sure work is sourced from local and community sources all of this investment will bring wealth and health benefits to local people.

Rotheram said: "I'm really happy that we've been able to make using the Mersey Tunnels even easier by introducing contactless payments. It should also mean cars will spend less time on the toll plaza, reducing congestion and air pollution and making journeys faster. “There's now no need to hunt around for change. You can now just tap your debit and credit card and go, or still take advantage of Fast Tag with £1 journeys for Liverpool City Region residents.”

Combined authority is bringing tangible benefits for Sefton, claims Metro Mayor

{

METRO Mayor Steve Rotheram has marked two years of ‘tangible benefits’ for Sefton as part of a Mayoral Combined Authority. On the second anniversary of his election, Mr Rotheram said Sefton has seen tens of millions of pounds in additional resources secured for the borough by being a member of the Combined Authority. He said this included specific investment for the local area, in addition to funding from schemes across the areas of transport and skills and from Liverpool City Region-wide projects such as Housing First and Households into Work. Specific funding includes supporting projects such as a new £10.7 million station for Maghull North, £5.5 million worth of improvements to Junction 1 of the M58 and investment in local colleges which without the Liverpool City Region’s devolution deal, he says, it “would not otherwise have been able to access.” So far the Combined Authority

Borough has seen ‘tens of millions’ of pounds in additional resources, says Rotheram

Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram

has invested £400 million in the Liverpool City Region to create 9,000 jobs and 5,500 apprenticeships Mr Rotheram said: “Devolution benefits everyone in the city region. By working together, our local authorities have a more powerful voice and have been able to secure additional funding that we would not have been able to access without a Combined Authority. “We can already demonstrate a track record of delivery and I’m sure that in the years to come we will continue to make the city region a better place to live for all of our residents.” Since he was elected as the Metro Mayor, the Liverpool City Region has secured more than

£183m in additional funding from Government. This money has only been offered to the city region because it has a Metro Mayor. Areas without one, like West Yorkshire and the East Midlands, have missed out. This is in addition to the £1 billion devolution deal it struck with the government in 2015. The cost of being part of the city region for Sefton residents in 2019-20 is around 28p per household, per week. This cost is added to residents’ council tax bills in the form a Liverpool City Region Combined Authority precept. That charge brings a return, on average, of £600 in additional funding per Liverpool City Region household, claim the Metro Mayor ’s office.

Martin Mere news A wildlife wonderland on Martin Mere’s nature reserve Spring is such a fantastic time to visit Martin Mere, with the ducks in the wildfowl collection at their showy best and the first ducklings starting to hatch. However, it is also a great time to see and hear native British wildlife on the nature reserve. Spring sees our winter swans departing for Iceland but they are replaced by summer visitors and by ducks and waders breeding on the wet grassland. With migration now in full swing, this year has already been exceptional for the variety of wildlife seen on the reserve and it is no wonder that one birdwatching magazine ranked Martin Mere as being in the top ten sites in the country for birdwatching. The noise in the reedbeds is getting louder and louder each day as more and more sedge and reed warblers arrive from Africa. Up to nine Cettiís warblers are also belting out their explosive song and, if you hear a loud, incessant grasshopper in the reeds it may well be one of our six singing grasshopper warblers. Any pigs heard squealing in the reedbed will actually be the secretive water rail; listen out for this call near to the Harrier Hide. A more familiar call is that of the cuckoo, which has been patrolling the reedbed for a week or so, probably looking to lay its egg in a reed warbler nest. For the last month, a pair of bearded tits has also been seen in

the reedbed and we are hoping these birds are breeding. The male bearded tit is a strikingly handsome bird distinguished by his long Mexican moustache. On the mere itself, the black-headed gull colony is in full swing and there have also been regular sightings of a pair of Mediterranean gulls and little gulls. Avocets are also breeding on the mere and on Woodend Marsh. Other breeding waders include lapwing, snipe, redshank, and both ringed and little ringed plover, while wood, green and common sandpipers have passed through on their journey north, along with a rare American wader, a pectoral sandpiper. Many ruff and black-tailed godwit are also still hanging around, with some in their fine summer plumage. We hope to see them breeding at Martin Mere sometime soon. It has been an excellent year for breeding waders so far and the ducks are also having a great year with good numbers of breeding gadwall, teal, shovel and shelduck on the reserve. Several garganey, the only duck to migrate to the UK in summer, have also been seen. It really is a great time to visit Martin Mere not just to see the captive birds but to get out onto the reedbed walk and into the hides to experience the best of British wildlife.

READER HOLIDAYS

Author creates mythical mermaids in the Mersey! A FATHER of two who has dyslexia has created his second children's book, combining Greek mythology with his love of Liverpool. Sculptor and painter Andrew Sherriff, 58, who lives in Southport, was born in the city but studied at Southport Art School before enjoying a successful career in wedding and portrait photography, under the name Andrew John, in Maghull. He won awards during his 35 year career including the Kodak Portrait Photographer of the Year and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) Best Wedding Album of the Year,. Andrew has now released The Mermaids Tale: From Mermaid to Merseymaid, which has relocated the traditional tale of the mermaid to Liverpool’s River Mersey. NewHe Headers.indd 2 said: “I have always enjoyed reading classic story books to my children and foster children before bedtime and loved making up stories. Having had various ideas over the years I thought it would be good to combine my painting style with my ideas to create a children’s book. “With The Mermaids Tale I’ve tried to make it local to Liverpool in a way that gives it a certain mythology and, at the same time, giving it some truth. I also wanted to give it some jeopardy - children love to hear something scary - in the safety of their own homes of course. Just think of Hansel and Gretel. It's quite gruesome that they were going to be cooked and eaten.

Children's author Andrew Sherriff with his newest book, The Mermaids Tale: From Mermaid to Merseymaid

“With all classic children stories there is an underlying moral message. Something that’s been in my mind, and I think the public’s mind, are refugees having to escape from war zones and persecution of one form or another in the hope finding a better place. “The mermaids aka merseymaids are refugees and Liverpool is a safe haven for them. I hope my story might help teach some empathy showing its good to be kind and not to fear someone different than ourselves.” Both of his books are available to buy on Amazon and at Broadhurst's of Southport on Market Street.

Rubbish Friends clean Marine Lake

IT was plain sailing when Southport’s Rubbish Friends group, pictured above, collected 24 bags of rubbish from the Marine Lake and seafront near to West Lancashire Yacht Club. The volunteer group was set up seven years ago and regularly spruce up areas all around the town. WLYC spokesman Ian Hughes said: “The volunteers did a fantastic job. It makes such a difference - it greatly helps to create a good impression for Southport visitors.” New group member Stanley High School student Callum Blackmore, 14, added: “I love helping out at Rubbish Friends. I feel I’m doing something worthwhile for25/01/2019 the local10:25 area and the environment. I have also helped out at Kew and the seafront. It’s amazing how much rubbish there is to collect.

Animal sanctuary seeking homes for cats and hedgehogs

Charity also appeals for donations to help fund care, treatment, food and shelter for unwanted or neglected animals A WEST Lancs-based charity which aims to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted, illtreated, abandoned or neglected animals is seeking new owners for cats and hedgehogs. The team at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary in Sandy Lane, Holmeswood revealed that these are the two types of animals that they deal with the most - especially in the summer when they are inundated with abandoned or orphaned kittens, hoglets and juvenile hogs.

Baby hoglets at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary

Vulnerable Sally McDerby from Woodlands said: “Babies, of any species and more specifically poorly babies, can carry a high financial cost. “As an independent, self-funded charity, this time of year can stretch the sanctuary’s purse strings to their limits. “From the increased hours that are needed to care for these vulnerable, innocent babies, to the medication they often require, not to mention the usual food, water, shelter and bedding, along with routine medicines such as wormers and flea treatments, the costs of care for Woodlands can

increase dramatically over the summer months. “We are forever grateful to both long-standing and new supporters, who offer support all year round, from assisting at fundrais-

ing events, volunteering on site with day-to-day animal care, purchasing much-needed equipment, sponsoring one of the resident animals or buying items from the Ebay shop which all helps maintain the finances of the charity. “However, it is over the coming months that the bills for medication and veterinary care really start to increase and Woodlands really need and appreciate any monetary donations that people can make – however small or big.” For more information, or to donate, visit woodlandsanimalsanctuary.org.uk

Village football club celebrates centenary

OFFICIALS of a village football club are planning to celebrate a historic milestone. Halsall FC is 100 years old this year and members past and present are invited to join in a special celebration on Sunday, June 9 at the Memorial Field from 1pm. The day will feature a game between current players and a ‘veterans’ team made of past players. This will be followed by refreshments and a chance to catch up with old friends and teammates and reminisce over some memory-jerking photos and other clubrelated memorabilia. Organisers are appealing for anyone with any old photos and associated memorabilia that they would like to share to take it along on the day. Alternatively they can call Ian Goldstraw on 07817 250 526 or club manager Paul Williams on 07810 448 136 to arrange for any items to be collected or for more information about the event.

ber of years it also turned out several successful junior teams. In the early days, between 1929 and 1935 trophies won included the Colonel White Cup, the Senior Charity Cup and the

It will be a family affair for new play Too Friendly Theatre Company: Sex Cells Preview by Ron Ellis THIS year marks one of festivity for the Too Friendly Theatre Company as they are celebrating their 20th Anniversary. A versatile group, the company has turned its hand from comedy and farce to gritty realism and classic drama from all different eras, and the first play of their

anniversary year is Anna Longaretti’s 'Sex Cells', a tender, intelligent and very funny play about family life. The play follows the lives of four women who work in a call centre for a company selling sex toys online, yet alongside all the humour, it is more about motherhood than sex. Tracey Holmes-Smith who takes on the lead role of Lily, said: “Motherhood has many forms and

this play looks at how these women approach the challenges, heartache and joy of being a mother.” ‘Sex Cells’ runs at the Little Theatre, Southport from Thursday, May 16 to Saturday, May 18 at 7.30pm each evening and promises to be a fun and moving night out. Tickets are on sale now from the Little Theatre Box Office (Tel. 01704 530521/530460) or from 01704 560229.

The stage version of Dirty Dancing at the Liverpool Empire was mesmerising

I had the ‘Time of my Life’ at Dirty Dancing! Review by Danielle Thompson Dirty Dancing Liverpool Empire SIZZLING chemistry, mesmerising dancing and stunning rotating sets made the Liverpool Empire production of Dirty Dancing the best version I have ever seen. Having loved the 1987 classic film as a teenager, I am always slightly wary with stage adaptations as I am always nervous that they won't live up to the premise – but trust me, this one goes above and beyond. It is true to the film and tells the classic story of daddy's girl Frances 'Baby' Houseman, aged 17, who goes on holiday at upscale resort Kellerman's with her family. She plans to go into the Peace Corps before she meets and falls in love with the resort's dance instructor Johnny Castle and has her eyes opened to the adult world complete with injustice, social prejudice and dubious ethics. Featuring the classic hit songs, including Hungry Eyes, Hey Baby, Do You Love Me? and I've Had The Time of My Life, it features a really feel-good vibe with the beautiful sets, spectacular dancing and really clever use of the stage, including the hilarious 'lake' and 'log' scenes which are done in such a tongue-in-cheek way that they make you laugh. The lead dancers, Kira Malou as Baby and Michael O'Reilly as

Johnny, have mesmerising chemistry and are very well-matched, adding humorous touches to the role. The scenes where Baby is first learning to dance and is 'wooden' are done so well, that you almost forget that they are acting and it comes as a surprise when Baby becomes a stunning dancer later on! The 'blonde with the great legs' as another Kellerman's guest describes Penny (played by Simone Covele) Johnny's childhood sweetheart turned dance partner - is concentrated on more in the stage production than the film. In the film version, there are undertones that she might still hold a flame for Johnny, but in the stage version, they focus more on the intense friendship formed in the unusual situation between the women, based on their increasing respect for one another, and her role shines a light on how women's choices in the 1960s in a 'bad situation' could be stark. When she tells Baby of her fears before her backstreet abortion, she makes the performance so heartrending that it stays with you afterwards. She is a stand-out star in the production for me. All in all, the stage performance more than lived up to the 'perfect' film version and the time absolutely flew by while we were watching it. Don't miss your chance to see the show – you really will 'have the time of your life.' My star rating: 10/10 – It was the perfect performance

That’s Amoré comes to The Atkinson CLASSICAL vocal trio Tenors Unlimited, the ‘Rat Pack of Opera’, will perform a new show That’s Amoré at The Atkinson in Southport.

HERE’S a priceless bit of pub trivia for you. Europe’s biggest producer of pizzas is based not in Naples or Milan, but on an industrial estate in Leyland, and owned by a thoroughly sensible German conglomerate. Yet the grub, even though it’s proudly made by Lancashire folk and bankrolled by the Dr Oetker corporation, is unmistakeably Italian. In much the same way that I took my other half out for a spaghetti carbonara made by a bloke in Lincolnshire and created from UK-sourced ingredients, but the enormous Italian tricolore over the restaurant’s front door said all you needed to know about its national identity. So it shouldn’t bother you even slightly that the new Land Rover Defender is going to be made in Slovakia, by a company that’s owned by an Indian conglomerate. Or – scratch that last part, if the latest rumours are correct – by a French conglomerate. Specifically, the one behind the Peugeot 308 and the Citroën C4 Cactus. Jaguar Land Rover, at least at the time of writing, has been swift to deny any talk of its Indian owners at Tata selling up after a dec-

ade in the leather-lined driving seat, but I don’t actually reckon it’s a bad thing. Largely because Peugeot and Citroen have tried for years to blag the golf club parking spaces so typically bagged by BMW, Audi and Mercedes models – and never really nailed it. Readers with particularly long memories might recall that Citroën owned Maserati for a bit, which resulted in the wonderful SM coupé but not much else. Then it tried a succession of big-engined four-doors under its own names – the Citroën XM and Peugeot 605 spring to mind – but the vast majority of would-be buyers outside of France shrugged and bought BMWs anyway. More recently, it’s tried doing what Toyota did with Lexus by spinning Citroën’s more upmarket models into its DS brand – but why go to all the bother when you can simply buy out the people who brought you the Range Rover and Jaguar XJR? I’m still not entirely sure why Peugeot-Citroën bought Vauxhall but snapping up JLR makes complete sense, as it gives it a foothold in all those markets where brand prestige matter. I just hope that they give it the same autonomy that Tata and – to a lesser extent, Ford before it – did, allowing the experts behind Land Rover’s clever off-roading tech and Jaguar’s beautifully honed suspension to get on with what they know best. Do that and they’ll still be the Dr Oetker frozen pizzas of the car world – it won’t matter who funds it and where they’re built, because the people who really matter, the people buying them, will think of them as brilliant British cars. Get it wrong and it’ll be hotpot and Sauerkraut on the same plate. Yuck! David Simister is the editor of Classic Car Weekly

Formby were put in to bat and thanks to 86 from opener James Seward, 67 from skipper Elliot Ketteringham and an unbeaten 27* from Luke Tinsley were able to declare 232-9, with Paul Jenkins taking 5-55. In reply, a superb spell of bowling (11.4-7-11-6 including a hat trick) from former Zimbabwean international Tatenda Taibu and 4-59 from Sam Oldham helped dismiss the hosts for 110 to wrap up a maximum points victory. Southport & Birkdale secured their first win of the campaign with a 53 run home win against Leigh. The hosts elected to bat and made a decent start thanks to runs from Will Affleck 39 and 27 each from Adam Phillips and Harry May, but they then collapsed from 104-3 to 143 all out as the spin of Toby Bulcock 5-49 and Ryan Housley 3-21 accounted for the mid to lower order.
