FUNDING PLEA AT SCHOOL WHERE PUPILS HAVE TO WEAR COATS IN CLASS

INSIDE THIS WEEK...

MP tells Commons that spending money to mend leaky roofs will just be a ‘sticking plaster’ and that new building is urgently needed

Film-maker on Oscar shortlist

Report by Henry James

A PLEA for the government to invest in a new building at a primary school in Lydiate has been made by MP Bill Esterson after he was shocked to discover pupils had to wear coats in class to keep warm. The Sefton Central visited Lydiate Primary School, as it welcomed pupils on Monday, January 6 after it had been closed since November 22 due to health and safety concerns with reports that pieces of concrete had been falling off the roof. The children spent the last few weeks of the autumn term at Maghull High School. It is understood that £400,000 will be spent on repairs in the coming months but the MP said this will just be a “sticking plaster”. He told students and staff that he was shocked to hear they had been wearing coats in the classroom in order to stay warm and took the campaign for a new building direct to Westminster after promising pupils he would fight to get them “safe, warm and dry” classrooms. During Questions to the Leader Of The House of Commons in Parliament last week, the MP said: “Lydiate Primary School is in desperate need of a new building. “Governors are doing all they can to make do but it is simply not economically viable to continue. “The school desperately needs funding for a new build. “The children are wearing coats in the classroom to keep warm. This is completely unacceptable. I am told there are leaks in the roof and damp.

Established 41 Years

MP Bill Esterson with staff and pupils from Lydiate Primary School

“When the children were moved out to Maghull High School temporarily they were amazed at not having to wear their outdoor coats. “Spending £400,000 on a range of sticking plaster repairs will be money down the drain. “It is simply not acceptable that the children and staff have to put up with leaks, with concrete falling off the walls and plaster falling off the ceiling. “The wiring needs to be replaced while energy bills are absurdly high because of the poor insulation. But this will only delay the inevitable. It needs a new build. “The damp throughout the school is a danger to the health of pupils and staff.” Mr Esterson has asked to meet the Education Secretary

over the issue. Lydiate Primary headteacher Georgina Forshaw said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Esterson in to our school and the children had the opportunity to ask an MP some great questions from Brexit to football. “Mr Esterson has been saddened to hear we had to temporarily move out of our school due to concerns with our school building and is keen to raise the issue of school funding in parliament.” Chair of Governors Claire Moore added: “It’s incredibly reassuring to know we have the support of our MP in lobbying central government for the funding we need to ensure that the school building in which we teach our wonderful children is fit for the 21st century.”

Pensioner fined £50 for ‘accidentally’ dropping receipt on the pavement Report by Tom Martin A PENSIONER from Crosby who claims she accidentally let a receipt fall out her pocket was fined £50 for littering by a passing traffic warden. The 72-year-old woman, who did not want to be named, was on St Luke’s Road on Saturday, January 4 when she reached into her pocket to get her mobile phone. A civil enforcement officer then appeared and fined her on the spot for littering, claiming she had just dropped a receipt onto the ground. The pensioner claimed she hadn’t realised and it was an accidental, but the fine was still issued. Her daughter, who spoke to the Champion on her behalf, said: “My mum was walking back from Tesco Express and she can get pains in her legs, so she stopped on the pavement

Just a week after winning a Golden Globe film-maker Chris is now on shortlist for an Oscar! His animation feature Missing Link nominated for an Academy Award Report by Kenny Parker JUST one week after picking up a Golden Globe, an animation film maker from Maghull has now been nominated for an Oscar and his family can’t believe it’s not a dream! Chris Butler’s ‘stop motion’ animation film Missing Link which was a Golden Globe last week is one of five films short-listed from 35 nominations for the Best Animation Film category at this year’s Academy Awards, commonly known as the Oscars - the film industry’s most prestigious awards. It is again pitted against Disney’s Toy Story 4 and Dream Works' How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World – both of which it triumphed over at the Golden Globes – and also Spanish film Klaus and French film I Lost My Body. Chris attended Lydiate Primary School and Deyes High School, before studying at an art foundation course at Hugh Baird College in Bootle and studying for a degree in Surrey. After a spell in London he has been working for 13 years for Laika studios in Oregon, USA, where he made Missing Link. Chris’s mum Barbara said: “We couldn’t believe it because to all the other big films that were nominated, 32 altogether, and he went down to the last five. “He is just overjoyed. Even if he does not get the Oscar, he has been nominated. “It’s absolutely fantastic. We are all in a dream. There is only one Disney film that’s nominated, Toy Story 4, so he stands a Chris Butler with his Golden Globe won for his film Missing Link, inset left, and Chris when he was a boy, inset right.

A UNIQUE drama company staged a special celebration event in Netherton to salute the success of its members on a linked college course. New Centre Stage held the certificate presentation to mark the achievements of 14 group members who have successfully completed a twoyear St Helens College course, the Certificate in Skills for Further Learning and Employment. The event was held in the Netherton studio theatre of the group which is run by adult social care providers, New Directions. The flexible Open Awards-accredited course has been using drama as the basis of a range of activities designed to help students acquire useful new life and work skills. Group members have been encouraged to set a

number of individual goals to boost their personal awareness, health and wellbeing, self-confidence and self-esteem. The aim is that over time the course will have a very positive effect in terms of students’ personal development, social skills and employability. New Centre’s stage activity lead, Vicky Bennett, said: “The group members involved have worked very hard on this course over the past two years and really deserve their success. “They have been particularly enthusiastic about the use of drama as the basis of many of the activities and I am sure they will find the new skills they have learned extremely useful in the future.” New Centre Stage has built up an impressive track record of successful productions of hit musicals including The Greatest Showman and the Wizard of Oz. Other recent appearances have also included an evening of dance and a performance at the Anne Frank memorial event at the Bootle Strand Shopping Centre.

Rimrose Valley group contact minister over Peel Ports influence on new road project Report by Tom Martin AN open letter has been sent to the government by the Save Rimrose Valley group about its “serious concerns” over Peel Ports’ relationship with Highways England. The Champion recently reported that a Freedom of Information (FOI) request revealed emails sent between Peel Ports and Highways England as staff from both companies discussed the proposed road to be build through Rimrose Valley Country Park. The Save Rimrose Valley action group claim the emails showed Peel is the “driving force” behind the controversial road plan. They have now written to Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, asking him to look into the issue. The campaigners also claim the FOI request was not fully answered, because they claim some emails were kept back. Stuart Bennett from Save Rimrose Valley said: “It is no surprise that Peel Ports has a role to play in this project – it is called the Port of Liverpool Access Scheme, after all. “However, we have serious concerns about the transparency of this process, the nature of their relationship and what information has passed between the two organisations. “We are questioning whether it is appropriate for a privately-owned company to have so much influence in this hugely unpopular project, when it stands to benefit from it the most. “We already know that Peel Ports was involved in efforts to secure funding for the project and that it offered tours of the port to influential parties.

“What is more concerning is that more communications between the two companies have been withheld and the public aren’t being given the full picture of their collaborative efforts in trying to push the scheme forward. “We have asked the Transport Secretary to look into this as a matter of urgency. “We have also repeated our calls for the road scheme to be halted, in order to allow time for proper research into sustainable alternatives to moving freight to and from the Port of Liverpool, which respect our health and wellbeing and the environment.”

Dog owners warned after pet dies eating palm oil on beach PET owners are being urged to be extra vigilant after a dog died shortly following eating a chunk of deadly palm oil on Formby beach. A spokesperson for the National Trust put out an urgent warning on Monday, January 13 after being informed of the incident. They said: “We are aware that a dog has sadly passed away due to potentially eating palm oil on Formby Beach. “Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for harmful materials such as palm oil to wash up on the beach, so dog owners should always remain vigilant and not allow their dogs to eat anything on the beach. “If you suspect that your dog has consumed palm oil, please seek veterinary advice immediately. If anyone does see what they suspect to be palm oil on Formby beach, please report it to National Trust staff on 01704 878591. Palm oil can be identified by a petrol-like, rancid smell. Some lumps typically have a yellow or white appearance, but many are difficult to spot as they are grey and covered in sand. This is not the first time that the Champion has appealed to owners to beware the toxic substance. In November 2019, Daniel Simpson and his girlfriend Elizabeth Rochford from Crosby told of how their one-year-old labradoodle, called Boz, was believed to have ingested some on the stretch of beach near Crosby Leisure Centre. Elizabeth had not noticed anything unusual but hours later Boz became violently ill. He threw up bile which smelt like petrol and there were big chunks of a white substance mixed in with sand. He was rushed to the emergency vets and he was given an anti-sickness injection and was lucky to survive. A spokesman for Sefton Council’s Green Sefton said: “Palm oil debris is an ongoing problem as so much of it floats around our oceans.

Palm oil is usually yellow colour but can soon take on a stone-like appearance (as above)

“While palm oil debris is harmless to humans it can be fatal to dogs if eaten. For this reason pet owners are asked to remain vigilant if walking their dog on the coast, especially around tide-lines. “Warning signs are on display throughout the Sefton Coast and anyone who discovers palm oil is encouraged to call 0151 934 2961 and report it.” Ships often dump palm oil into the water and it then washes up on beaches including Formby, Southport and Crosby. The substance is harmless to humans but can be fatally toxic to dogs. By law, ships are permitted to dump palm oil into the sea if they are at least 12 miles offshore, despite concerns raised by dog walkers and animal activists. The lumps of oil, which can weigh up to a quarter of a ton and originate from palm trees, can harbour many germs and diseases. While some travel 3,000 miles across the ocean from the Caribbean, other waste is dumped overboard by cargo ships as they swill out their holds at sea. The British regulator, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency is looking into the possibility of negotiating a regional deal to crack down on the dumping of food oils in British waters.

Gwen with her late husband Derek

DEREK Acorah’s wife has spoken for the first time since her husband’s death and revealed she still talks to him from beyond the grave. Gwen Acorah Johnson, 71, was left devastated after Derek died on January 4 at the age of 69 following a short battle with pneumonia which led to sepsis. In an interview with the Sunday

People, Gwen said: “Derek believed life goes on in another dimension. There’s an element of comfort in that because it’s not a big blank wall and he’s gone. “I keep thinking I must pick up the phone and tell Derek. I -actually do tell him. I talk to him. “People may think I’m mad. I’ve nagged him all his life so why shouldn’t I continue?” She added that she won’t try to speak to Derek through a medium and ‘has faith he’s OK’.

Hospital is cordoned off after man stabbed and has ‘substance’ thrown on him MOBILITY BATHROOMS AND ADDITIONAL TOILETS ARE OUR SPECIALITY

Report by Henry James A POLICE cordon was put in place at Aintree hospital after a man, who was stabbed and had an unknown substance thrown in his face, was brought there following a serious asssault. At about 6.30pm on Sunday, January 12, emergency services were called to Inglis Road, in Walton, to reports of a man in his 20s being reportedly stabbed. The victim was taken to Aintree Hospital for assessment of his injuries and to establish the nature of the substance. Medical staff have now confirmed that the substance does not present any wider risk to others. It is initially assessed as being a household substance, which has caused the victim a minor facial injury. A cordon was in place at the scene of the assault as detectives conducted house-to-house, forensic and CCTV enquiries. A cordon was also in place at the hospital while their own medical assessment was made. This has now been removed and police have thanked

We are the longest established installation company on Merseyside Aintree Hospital

members of the public for their patience and understanding. Chief Inspector Mark Everard said: “These are the early stages of our investigation into what appears to be a targeted attack. “If you were in or near to Inglis Road at around 6.30pm and saw or heard anything, come forward right away and we will take positive action. “This is clearly a serious assault and our focus is now on establishing the exact circumstances to bring those responsible to justice.” Anyone with information can contact @MerPolCC, 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference number 702.

‘Metro Mayor Tax’ to be frozen in latest budget proposals Report by Tom Martin TAX paid by Sefton residents to the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority will be frozen under plans by metro mayor Steve Rotheram. The so-called ‘Metro Mayor Tax’ will stay the same in 2020/21, meaning those living in the lowest value homes (Band A properties) will continue to pay an additional £12.67 on their Council Tax bills - with that amount increasing for those living in more valuable properties. It is part of Mr Rotheram’s key budget proposals for the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. The Metro Mayor Tax was introduced last year to pay for the staffing and priorities of his office. The budget proposals would also see the Mersey Tunnel tolls frozen at 2019/20 levels, while the Transport Levy, paid by the city region’s six local authorities, would increase by 2.1%, in line with inflation, the first increase in three years. The budget will also make special provision for key strategic priorities including the Mersey Tidal Power Project, the Liverpool City Region’s Digital Connectivity Programme and improvements to the city region’s bus services. Speaking about the proposals, Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “Over the past decade, our region has been hit hard by austerity, with local government and local people bearing the brunt of government cuts. “In spite of this, I’m optimistic about the future and the opportunities devolution gives us to make our own decisions for the benefit of local people. “From investing tens of millions in local schools

Metro mayor Steve Rotheram

and colleges, improving our transport infrastructure and providing £75million to support local business, to our UK-leading Housing First pilot to tackle homelessness and our Households into Work scheme to support families with generational unemployment, helping local people has been the driving force behind everything we do. “And there is more to come. This year, we’ll be launching our state-of-the-art, publicly owned trains for the Merseyrail network, announcing plans to improve our bus network and moving forward with our ambitious Mersey Tidal Power project, which will harness the River Mersey for clean, green sustainable energy. “I also want to help ease the burden on local taxpayers in the year ahead, which is why I’m freezing tunnel tolls and the council tax precept for city region residents.” The proposals will be adopted if they are approved at the combined authority's budget meeting on January 24.

Report by Tom Martin JUST months after appearing on I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! Adele Roberts is back on television screens on another reality show. The Radio DJ, who attended Merchant Taylors’ School in Crosby, is on the latest series of Celebrity Coach Trip on Channel 4. Adele features with her partner Kate Holderness on the show in which celebrity couples go on a tenday tour, taking part in activities along the way. They vote off other couples until there is an eventual winner. Adele, who grew up in Southport, first found fame after appearing on the 2002 series of Channel 4’s Big Brother, and went on to forge a successful small screen TV show and radio career. The 40-year-old is currently a presenter on Radio 1, and appeared in last year’s I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! where she was the first to be voted out of the jungle. Adele believes her appearance on Celebrity Coach Trip will be a lot easier than the Australian jungle! She said: “I missed Kate every single day on I’m A Celeb and I wish she could’ve been with me but I

Adele (right) with partner Kate Holderness

Wrong time for planning meeting

Switch Island accident debris mess is a blot on landscape

Sefton Council is to hold a meeting regarding the building of 1,700 houses in Maghull on a Wednesday at 1pm in Bootle, knowing full well many of those who want to attend, myself included, will be at work. Although objections have previously been put to Sefton Council, it seems that planning permission will be granted regardless of the views of residents, and the lack of infrastructure. It strikes me that those involved in this decision do not live in the area and are therefore of the opinion ‘if it’s not on my doorstep.’

I, like many readers, travel daily through our local blot on the landscape, that being Switch Island. Apart from waiting in traffic jams, why on earth must we be subjected to the dismal sight of car debris, mangled barrier rails (that have been replaced but discarded), traffic cones, rusting frameworks that once supported road signs, sandbags, glass etc. Surely these remnants of traffic accidents should be removed from the site as part of the clean-up operation. I am sure the contractors attending the site have costed into the operational service they provide, the charge to the authority for a full clean-up. The non-removal of this debris is effectively flytipping which in the eyes of the law is now a criminal offence.

Elaine Wall, Maghull

Secondly, the gully kerbstones, designed with drainage feature holes, are being rendered useless in the removal of surface water as there is no road sweeping or gully cleaning so the holes are allowed to fill up with grit, grass and weeds. Switch Island attracts enough negative press as it is, without it becoming a dumping ground for all manner of vehicle debris, highways equipment and weed growth. I am not asking for the earth here, but surely the council Highways Service and the Highways Agency can undertake a relatively simple task of keeping the areas free of all of this rubbish. Billy Peters, Maghull

Your quote was from the Bible First, may I wish you very Happy New Year, and thank Jim Sharpe for your entertaining contribution to the Champion week by week. You often manage to lift the spirits through ‘One Man and His Dog.’ In your column in last week’s Champion you quote “sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” but you credit it to Shakespeare erroneously! It is, in fact, to be found in the Bible of Matthew, chapter 6, verse 34 (King James Version) speaks these words as part of His ‘Sermon on the Mount.’ Shakespeare may have quoted these words in his writings (I’m not a Shakespearian scholar) but if so I hope he made reference to their original source!

Better to extend Merseyrail lines to Burscough Bridge I read the article headlined ‘Call for Merseyrail to be extended to Preston’ with interest. Merseyrail does indeed top the league tables for reliability and performance. But this is due in large part to it being a self contained network, unaffected by congestion elsewhere. Extending the Ormskirk service to Preston would have a negative effect on Merseyrail’s performance, especially if it had to contend with additional Southport to Preston trains running on the same line. If both Burscough curves are rebuilt then a better operating solution may be to

extend Merseyrail from Ormskirk to Burscough Bridge on a self contained line providing connections with the Southport to Wigan/Manchester line. Northern could then switch its Ormskirk to Preston service to run to and from Southport (calling at Burscough Bridge to connect with the new Merseyrail service). We would have a much better connected rail network without jeopardising the good service which Merseyrail already provides. Matt, Town Green

As the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust believes that the benefits of pet ownership shouldn’t be exclusive to homeowners, but open to private and social renters as well. With the number of people privately renting increasing year on year, the news that the Government is looking to make it easier for private tenants to have pets in their homes, has never been more important. Sadly, the single biggest reason we see dogs handed in to our rehoming centres is due to a change in the owner’s circumstances, such as being unable to live in a rented property with a pet. This can also stop people coming forward to adopt rescue animals. This needs to change and we sincerely hope the proposed updates to model tenancy contracts will help ensure that fewer owners are forced to give up their beloved pets and that more people are able to consider adoption. For over a decade, Dogs Trust has been working with landlords, letting agencies and the property industry on this issue. It’s important that any updates to the model tenancy contract are backed up with appropriate guidance for landlords on how to put the changes into practice to make it fully effective and mutually beneficial for all parties involved. We welcome the opportunity to work alongside other animal welfare organisations and the Government to ensure this forthcoming change positively impacts the property sector, and that more pet friendly rental homes become available. Clare Kivlehan, Head of Outreach Projects at Dogs Trust

Authority approve plans Police launch new knife crime campaign to ‘kick start growth’ Report by Tom Martin MERSEYSIDE Police has launched a new anti-knife campaign to help keep young people safe. The campaign, called #BladeFree, comes after four people lost their lives last year in Merseyside due to knife crime. Research has shown that many of those involved in or at risk of being drawn into knife crime, suffer from a lack of “aspiration and belonging”, often as a result of living in areas with few or no opportunities for young people. This campaign is designed to help young people steer clear of knife crime and other serious violent crime by providing support and opportunities through activities and initiatives such as sport, music, and theatre to build confidence and aspiration and improve practical skills and employability. Through #BladeFree young people will be directed towards a range of local clubs and activities accessible across Merseyside, with the hope it can give them "ambition and opportunity”. This will be the first campaign for ‘Our Merseyside’, which is a regional initiative to encourage people and organisations to work together to bring pride and opportunity to Merseyside. Anyone, and everyone, can pledge their support to #BladeFree. If you provide services, groups and opportunities that could help young people, visit the website OurMerseyside.org. Assistant Chief Constable Jon Roy said: “We are hugely aware of the impact of knife crime on victims, their families, friends and our communities. “We don’t want people to suffer any longer and that’s why we are doing everything in our power to reduce knife crime through our operational activity including open land searches, stop searches, targeted operations and high visibility patrols, as well as working closely with our communities, schools and safeguarding partners to tackle the problem by taking a more preventative approach. This is at the forefront of our partnership work

The campaign is mainly targeted at young people

within the Merseyside Violence Reduction Unit. “We often hear that young people feel they have no opportunities, or that they’re bored, that they even carry knives for protection or because it’s deemed the ‘norm’ – but that couldn’t be further from the truth. “Merseyside is full of passionate people who are doing huge amounts of good work in their local neighbourhoods to educate, divert and influence young people away from knives and other violent crimes and we should do everything in our power to support and share their work. “The #BladeFree campaign will sit on a central hub, ‘Our Merseyside,’ hosting details of clubs, training opportunities, educational and fun activities that young people can do. “This is just the beginning – a social movement allowing young people the opportunity to prosper and succeed – by starting this social movement today, we can give young people a better tomorrow.” Councillor Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s cabinet member for communities and housing, said: “We know the vast majority of residents living in our beautiful borough are upstanding citizens who are proud of where they live. “Knife crime has a real impact on our communities and we are committed to ensuring residents across the borough are kept safe and live without fear. “We are committed to working closely with Merseyside Police and other partners to fully support the #BladeFree campaign.”

SEFTON Council has approved a wide-range of proposals to “kick start growth and investment” across the borough. The local authority held a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, January 9 when they agreed to move forward its Capital Investment Strategy. As part of the newly-approved Strategy, projects such as town centre regeneration, transport initiatives, housing and large employment sites will be delivered, creating new jobs and businesses, upskilling local residents, enhancing access and connectivity and bringing redundant land back in to use. Some of these projects will also create commercial income for the council and increase income from business rates and council tax which can help to pay for council services. The council claims that while they continue to face

financial challenges, they need to “think differently about generating income and how we provide critical services for our community.” The council also highlighted the “significant progress” made on projects such as the refurbishment of Crosby Lakeside Activity Centre and Sefton Adult Learning Centre, the purchase of the Strand Shopping Centre, and the creation of a new councilowned housing development company, Sandway Homes, which will build high quality homes for sale, including affordable homes across the borough. Cllr Ian Maher, leader of Sefton Council said: “This really is an exciting moment, signifying a major commitment by Sefton Council across the whole borough to proactively and effectively utilise its assets to facilitate a major programme of investment and development, to deliver the council’s regeneration strategies, and our community’s 2030 vision.”

Acts to reduce discrimination can also breed resentment DO you reckon that should I apply for another job (unlikely but still) and failed to get it I could start a movement making it illegal to discriminate against folk (men or women of course) who choose to wear a moustache - for obviously that could be the only cause of my not being selected? It is perhaps not that far from being possible in today ’s climate for anyone who thinks of themselves as being even slightly different from what used to be called ‘the norm’ can use that difference as a reason (whoops, sorry, I nearly wrote excuse) for not being selected. All this started very rightly when people were routinely barred not only from jobs but even accommodation simply for being black, or brown or indeed anything but whitely pink. It was wrong, very wrong - and needed stamping down on - hard. Trouble was though that from very reasonable and badly needed legislation, just about everybody who failed to get employment, hotel bed or restaurant table jumped on the bandwagon. Now don’t get me wrong - it is wrong if the reason is that you happen to be of different colour, faith or indeed sex. But it is likely that people have received either a new job or promotion within the organisation they work for not necessarily on merit but because of the furore that would follow when it turned out that the applicant was ‘foreign’ or indeed, female, and failed to get the job allegedly just because they were - if you get my drift and put out the now feared ‘discrimination’ howl. Now folk of my age can well remember the time when on just about any TV programme you could just about guarantee the ‘token black man.’ And that was just about the nadir - it was worse than any total ban in an uncomfortable, guilty feeling way. And happily those days are gone. Now though you have, for instance, the recent Golden Globe awards. And sure enough, there was a rather cross woman on Radio 4 who grudgingly agreed that there are now far more female directors in the film industry but they didn’t win any awards! “This must change� was the cry. Now maybe this is true - though I doubt it if only because these days there really is no reason why the directors who win the Golden whatnots are men unless - and I realise I am running my neck into a noose now - perhaps, just perhaps, it happens that it was films directed by people of the male persuasion that happened to make the best films. And that is rapidly becoming the problem. The original intent of the equality campaigners was not to ensure that the right proportion of people of colour, or of any sex, would get their ‘share’ of jobs or awards - but that they would have as much chance of getting them as any white male. I don’t know how many people of Chinese extraction live in the UK, but it must be quite sizeable. Perhaps most of these particular people do not wish to become an MP, or that again, just perhaps, somebody of Chinese extraction did - but simply wasn’t the best candidate. Surely, for instance, if there are, say, 12 applicants for a particular job, only one of which is a woman, then in any genuinely fair world she should stand a one in 12 chance of success and if she then tries to play the ‘discrimination card’ should be told quite simply ‘sorry, but you weren’t the best applicant.’ But no, these days she would very likely be given a spot on TV and radio news and the company concerned would be on the back foot, unable to be rude about her capabilities and probably just glad that she happened not to be white! I remember some years ago now, an acquaintance thinking of applying for a particular post saying: “If I was a female, black, disabled one parent family I’d be a shoo-in.� That may or may not have been the case but it is sadly how people feel sometimes.

Students told how they can strengthen career prospects

Hugh Baird College Sport and Public Services students and some of the industry experts.

Ambulance chief calls on big hotels to install defibs CALLS have been made for all major hotel chains in Sefton to install defibrillators. Anthony Marsh, chairman of the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, wants Automated External Defibrillators to be placed in hotels across the country after Premier Inn announced last week that they were installing AEDs in all 800 of its Premier Inn branches across the UK. They can be used in case of an emergency to a guest, staff member, or even a passer-by. Anthony Marsh, chairman of the Association of Ambulance chief executives, said: “A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone; young or old, fit or not. “When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, not to be confused with a heart attack, they are clinically dead; their heart has stopped beating and they will not recover unless someone is prepared to start CPR quickly and a defibrillator is attached to them to reset the heart. “Currently, the survival rate from cardiac arrests in the UK is tragically low at around 7%, but by increasing the number of defibrillators available and growing the number of people prepared to carry out CPR, that figure can be improved markedly. “Increasing the number of defibrillators could make the difference between life and death and ultimately give friends and families the chance to spend time with their loved ones that they would not otherwise have had.” Sudden Cardiac Arrest kills up to 60,000 people in the UK every year and affects people of all ages. A sudden cardiac arrest refers to a problem with the heart’s electrical system causing it to suddenly stop beating normally.

HUGH Baird College welcomed back some former students who are now industry specialists in sport to give an insight into different career paths. Staff and students from the Bootle college’s Sport and Public Services department recently hosted a ‘Meet the Professionals’ event. It featured a number of industry specialists who were once Hugh Baird College students themselves and who have since gone on to forge careers in the sport and fitness industry. Common themes included how to make exercise fun and accessible to all and how exercise can benefit your social life and your mental wellbeing. Many of the ex-students also spoke about the business and marketing skills they needed to develop and the importance of growing your businesses reputation on social media with client testimonials. Sessions delivered included; circuit training, high intensity interval training sessions, Pilates, Yoga,

and Olympic weightlifting. The first presentation was delivered by ex-Hugh Baird College Sport student, Jase Porter, who is the director of ‘My Fitness Agent Ltd.’ Jase, who is also the founder of the ‘Fitness Professionals Awards’ said: “It was great to meet with learners who are in the same position as I was a few years ago. It was important for me to make sure each student left my session feeling inspired and motivated. “Hugh Baird College and the course I studied played a huge part in I where I am today, but I really wanted the students to understand how hard you have to work to build your fitness business and most importantly, your reputation.” Amy Crowley, Hugh Baird College Health & Fitness Instruction student, said: “It was great to meet experts in the field who opened our eyes to the wide range of opportunities available to us in the Sport and Fitness industry.”

Report by Tom Martin LIVERPOOL Prison has “improved dramatically” according to inspectors, three years after it a report labelled it an “abject failure” and “one of the worst” in the UK. The Walton-based prison was described by jail inspectors in 2017 as the worst they had ever seen as it was rat infested with broken windows, filthy blocked lavatories, graffiti, damp, dirt, rodents and insects. Violence was also increasing, drugs were readily available, and there were serious failings in health care and purposeful activity. But HM Chief Inspector of Prisons Peter Clarke has said it had now put in HMP Liverpool place measures which had a dramatic impact to other prisons. Mr Clarke said, however, that “It is important to improvement. The improvement from poor, the lowest assess- understand that this had not been brought about ment, to good – the highest – for the ‘healthy simply as a result of the population being reduced prison test’ of respect represented “a remarkable and resources channelled towards the prison. While that had helped, he said the “real change achievement since the last inspection”, Mr Clarke had been in the quality of leadership and teamsaid. He added that while safety was still ‘not suffi- work there was now a culture of care that I simply ciently good’ at Liverpool, there were actions being could not see in 2017.” Mr Clarke noted, however, there are still too taken to address this which would have the desired many drugs entering the prison, despite a compreimpact in time. “The squalor and filth we saw in 2017 has gone," hensive supply reduction strategy. Phil Copple, HM Prison and Probation Service Mr Clarke said, adding that it was “replaced by clean and decent living conditions for the vast Director General of Prisons, said: “The turnaround at HMP Liverpool is an impressive achievement for majority of prisoners.” Some prison reform campaigners had argued that the prison’s staff and senior leaders and I’m glad the improvement was due to a reduced population that their progress has now been recognised by the at the jail as many prisoners had been transferred Chief Inspector in such positive terms.”

Council up for award SEFTON’S Supported Living Service is a finalist for a health and social care award. The service has been shortlisted in the 2019 Local Government Chronicle (LGC) Awards for its Individual Service Fund (ISF) Model, which has given local people with learning disabilities more control over their own lives and a greater choice of how they ’d like to receive their care. Deborah Butcher, Sefton Council’s interim director for adult social care, said: “The ISF Model has really revolutionised how we offer care to people with learning disabilities in Sefton. This will enable more people to live better lives for longer and give them greater control over how they’d like to be supported.” The ISF model was developed by Sefton Council in partnership with NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG as a way to improve outcomes for people in need of complex care. This came as a result of a review undertaken by the council, the CCGs and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust which explored how services that provided housing and support provisions for people with learning disabilities could be improved. Sefton has been shortlisted out of a record number of 700 entries to this year’s LGC Awards which celebrate outstanding practice and cutting-edge innovations in Local Government. Cllr Paul Cummins, Sefton Council’s cabinet member for adult social care, said: “This is a brilliant example of the power of partnership work and I am delighted that it has been recognised on a national level.” Fiona Taylor, chief officer for both CCGs in Sefton, said: “We’ve designed this pioneering model of care together with the people with learning disabilities who are supported by it and their advocates, so it’s fantastic that our partnership has been nominated for such a prestigious award.” Nick Golding, LGC editor, said: “The councils that have been shortlisted for an LGC Award are among the most innovative – and their innovation helps provide the best services for residents, despite local government facing ongoing financial constraint.”

LOL Comedy have been booking him for years and he will be in the town on Saturday, February 1 at 8pm. He is the host of Celebs on the Farm (Channel 5) & Celebs On The Ranch (5Star) and was the resident Agony Uncle on Zoe Ball on Saturday/Sunday (ITV) and a series regular on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5) until the end of their runs. Bailey has also been seen on Coronation Street (ITV), The Apprentice: You're Fired (BBC Two), Roast Battle, Takeshi’s Castle & Comedy Central at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Sketch Show, Safeword, and Celeb Ability & The Great Xmas Rant (ITV2).

memorable stage performances have seen him entertaining audiences nationally and internationally. A devoted father, comedian, author and actor are only an insight into Joe's extensive talents. His life has been somewhat exciting as he has ventured down various paths, including cage fighting, assisting a crime organisation and working as a firefighter. Joe's life experiences have enabled him to put pen to paper and write two successful crime novels. Having such a varied life, Joe has projected his experiences through dark and cutting humour, which have led him to supporting established comedy acts like Bill Bailey and Tom Stade on their tours. Audiences can see George Rigden as well. Having excelled in a host of new act competitions in his first year, George Rigden made his Edinburgh debut in 2015 when he performed as part of the prestigious AAA Stand Up Late showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard for a full sell-out run. Damion Larkin will be the MC for the night.

Uplifting musical coming to Empire ONE of the most celebrated musicals of all time, Once comes to Liverpool for the first time, playing at Liverpool Empire from Monday 20 to Saturday, January 25. Based on the critically acclaimed and much-loved film, Once tells the uplifting yet yearning story of two lost souls, a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician simply known as ‘Guy ’ and ‘Girl’. Once stars Daniel Healy and Emma Lucia as Guy and Girl, and ahead of the show’s North West premiere they came to Liverpool to busk across the city centre, performing songs from the musical’s award-winning score. From the Liver Building to Liverpool Lime Street, Daniel and Emma could be seen performing to the gathering crowds. Celebrated for its original score including the Academy Award-winning song Falling Slowly, Once is a spell-binding and uplifting story of hopes and dreams. Once embarks on its first major UK tour after acclaimed runs on Broadway and in the West End, and having won awards across the world including the Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album, eight Tony Awards and an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. The cast is led by Daniel Healy as Guy and Emma Lucia as Girl, who return to the roles after receiving critical and audience acclaim in the production’s 2018 premiere at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch. Daniel Healy is a singer-songwriter, musician and actor, who has co-written songs for multi-platinum artist Ronan Keating including the single Breathe, which topped the BBC Radio 2 Playlist. Theatre credits include Backbeat and Once, both in the West End. Emma Lucia made her professional debut as Marilyn and under studying Carole King in the UK Tour of Beautiful, before taking on the role of Girl in Once. The cast also features Dan Bottomley as Billy, Matthew Burns as Eamon, Ellen Chivers as Reza, Rosalind Ford as ex-girlfriend, Lloyd Gorman as Svejc, David Heywood as Emcee, Samuel Martin as bank manager, Peter Peverley as Da, Susannah Van

Once is directed by Peter Rowe with set and costume design by Libby Watson, musical supervision by Ben Goddard, choreography by Francesca Jaynes, lighting design by Mark Dymock, sound design by James Cook, projection design by Peter Hazelwood and orchestrations by Martin Lowe. Casting is by Debbie O’Brien. Based on the cult 2007 Irish indie feature, originally shot on a micro-budget of just $160,000, Once premiered at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2011 before transferring to Broadway in 2012. There it won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. Productions have since opened all over the world, including the West End production in 2013 which received the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. Once has a Book by award-winning Irish playwright and screenwriter Enda Walsh, and music and lyrics by Academy Award winning Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová who, for Falling Slowly, won the Oscar for Best Original Song. It is based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney. The Original Production Concept is by John Tiffany.

Former West End actress is playing leading role in show FORMER West End actress Marianne Welsh is very excited at getting set to play the leading role of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard by Andrew Lloyd Webber at Southport’s Little Theatre from February 5-8. Her long career saw her perform the role of Sandy in the original London production of Grease opposite Richard Gere, and taking over from Elaine Paige in Billy opposite Michael Crawford and also Roy Castle. Other roles in London were in The Rocky Horror Show, Hair, Evita to name a few, and leading lady to Russ Abbot and Bob Hoskins, as well as singing in a Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium. Marianne said: “This is the role of a lifetime for any musical theatre actress, it was played by Elaine Paige and Glenn Close who is now making the film. Award winning Southport Spotlights are putting on the show and the cast who are from the local area are all extremely talented. “Phil Hunter from Marshside is the leading man and has also worked in West End musicals. We have a terrific director in Stephen HughesAlty who is well known for his first rate shows.” Sunset Boulevard tells the story of Norma Desmond a faded star of the silent screen, living in the past in her decaying mansion on Sunset Boulevard. A young screenwriter Joe Gillis crosses her path and romance and tragedy follow. Tickets for the show are online atwww.ticketsource.co.uk/Southport-Spotlightsor 07927

Gourmet grub from TV chefs, and evening performances from prog rock bands. The Leisure Lakes Steam & Vintage Vehicle Rally had none of these things - and was all the better for it. I’ve been to plenty of car shows that have had all sorts of clever gimmicks – and the eye-watering ticket prices to go with them – so it was always refreshing to park up at Tarleton’s annual motoring bash and revel in a show delightfully devoid of pretentious add-ons; you got shedloads of nostalgia, community organisations, a some stands from Place your FREE couple of old fairground rides borrowed for the weekend, andonline that was advert atabout it.

Trying t sell you vehicle

an old David Brown tractor as you were a Ford Prefect or an Austin Cambridge. In fact – keep this quiet, as I know this is supposed to be a car-related column – I think Fred Dibnah’s Land Rover might have been narrowly pipped to the post by the vast array of vintage lorries built up by the hugely impressive William Hunter Collection. Place your F Over the past decade or so this event’s grown into a carefully curated overdose of motoring nostalgia, advert online and I’ve loved every one of my outings. champnews. So I was saddened to learn the other day that the organisers have decided to go out on a high after raising more than £330,000 for charity – not bad for a small-ish, volunteer-run event that’s had to contend with date clashes with other events, venue switches, horrendous weather and waterlogged fields along the way. In a letter put out on the show’s website, the team behind it said that no one had stepped forward with offers to help out with the months of planning needing to organise the two-day show, so the team’s decided to call it a day. There are, of course, plenty of events going ahead later this summer if you love nothing more than a Sunday of peering wistfully at old Wolseleys – the Place Ormskirk MotorFest and Lydiate Classic Car Show your FR to name just two – but the cancellation of the Leisure Lakes event definitely leaves a void as itadvert had a online wonderfully warm atmosphere all of its own. champnews.c I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some enterprising car nut decides to hold a vehicle rally or ofcall for a their own to plug the gap, because there’s definitely an appetite in this part of the world for this advert on sort of show, where you’re as likely to hear the toot of a faded fairground organ or the chuff of a 01704 steam 3923 engine as you are the clatter of an old sidevalve engine. My one request to whoever does, though – tell the companies hoping to flog overpriced gourmet grub and brand-new McLarens to do one. We’ve got plenty of shows for them already…

Bucks win again to keep in touch with leaders Congleton Town 0 Bootle 3 BOOTLE continued their impressive form with a hard-fought 3-0 win over Congleton Town at the weekend, writes Connor O’Neill. The victory was the Bucks’ seventh in a row, with them now sitting three points behind league leaders 1874 Northwich. Bootle picked up from where they left off on Tuesday night when they beat Runcorn Town 4-0 and opened the scoring on 18 minutes. Kieran Halligan and John Connolly combined down the right before the latter crossed for Carl Peers who swept the ball home from 12yards out. Jack McGovern then denied Dan Cope at the other end before the Bucks doubled their lead 10 minutes before the interval. Daniel Brady released Michael Carberry down the left. The full-back then ghosted past Kieron Brislen before his inch-perfect cross was headed home by Rob

Doran at the back post. The hosts started the second half brightly, but it was the Bucks who created the first meaningful chance of the half when Peers and Doran combined inside the box with the ball eventually finding its way to Connolly, but the midfielder dragged his effort wide of the far post. Liam Loughlin saw his header cleared off the line by Lewis Bergin as Doran's side went in search of a third. But with just over 20 minutes remaining, the Bucks were reduced to 10 men after Connor Millington was shown a straight red card following a coming together with Cope. However, despite being a man down, Doran’s side would add a third from a penalty. Substitute Warren Jevons was brought down inside the penalty area by Brislen with the referee having no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Ste Hoy stepped up and coolly converted from 12 yards out. Bootle visit Hanley Town on Saturday.

Impressive win boosts Remyca survival bid Litherland Remyca 4 Hanley Town 1 REMYCA put in one of their best performances of the season to earn a much-needed three points. Goals from James Law, Paul Foy and the debuting Einar White, alongside an own goal, mean Remyca are now level on points with relegation rivals Burscough. Hanley could have been one goal up in the opening five minutes, but Thompson scuffed a shot just wide of Travis Wilson’s net. White, recently signed from Skelmersdale, played the opening 45 minutes for Remyca and looked a class above his opponents. He threaded a ball across the pitch to Paul Foy, the resulting early chance saw a powerful shot saved with one hand by Woolrich. The deadlock was broken on 18 minutes when Foy took the ball from inside his own half and ran at the Hanley defenders. Cutting in from the wing, he unleashed a shot, that was saved by Woolrich, but the resulting parry fell to the

feet of Law who blasted his shot into the back of the net. Not long after this, it was 2-0. A beautiful pass from the constantly impressive James Hammill, was played to White. The attacker rounded the keeper with ease and dinked his shot in. Two minutes after the second half whistle was blown, Remyca were 3-0 up. This time, substitute Duffy made a powerful pass to Foy in the box and the forward showed class, as he placed his shot into the bottom corner. Chances were few and far between in the second half and Litherland added another to their score tally in odd fashion. A loose cross was attacked in the box, but Cope reacted first to win the header for Hanley butthe ball came off his head and looped over Woolrich for an own goal. Hanley grabbed a consolation goal through Thompson on 87 minutes. Remyca are due to host Whithcurch Alport tonight (Wednesday) and have no match on Saturday.

Maghull pay for missed chances Upton 1 Maghull 0 MAGHULL’S return to action after a four week lay-off did not go too well as they returned from their West Cheshire First Division match at Chester pointless at the hands of hosts Upton. The visitors were the better side in the first period against a very good

Upton outfit but they paid the ultimate penalty for missed chances in that time as a sloppy 15 minute period after the interval saw Lee Guiardo grab the decisive goal which earned the home side collect all three points. Maghull visit Capenhurst Villaon Saturday with the Reserves to host Litherland REMYCA. Both kick off at 2pm.

Captain Cummins bags all four goals for free scoring Mariners Widnes 1 Marine 4 MARINE captain Niall Cummins scored all four goals in an impressive away victory at Widnes, writes Tom Clarke. The 13,350-capacity stadium welcomed a modest 189-strong crowd for the fixture, many of whom were travelling Mariners. The performance was much more lively, though, as Marine won a penalty inside five minutes after Niall Cummins was felled in the box. The captain stepped up and put the spot-kick low towards the bottom right corner, but it was equalled by a great stop from Tom Scott. Ex-Mariner James Murray was lively for Widnes, but Germano Mendes in goal managed to keep him out, once with an unorthodox stop using his face for which

he required treatment. Cummins notched the first goal after 33 minutes following some intense pressing from Steve Irwin, which led the midfielder through to square for his captain. The striker almost immediately bagged his second before half-time, but for a Widnes clearance off the line. That second goal came seven minutes after the restart, but in strange circumstances. After the goal appeared perfectly legitimate, the linesman flagged for an unknown reason, before the referee made the ultimate decision to award the goal. Captain Cummins bagged his hat-trick on 64 minutes, converting from close range to put the Mariners 3-0 up. He netted a fourth with 15 minutes left, to wild celebrations from the travelling

Mariners. Manager Neil Young made three changes in the closing stages to see out the win, as James Barrigan, Irwin, and Jordan Lussey all made way for James Ellison, Craig Lindfield and Kenny Strickland. Lindfield almost made an instant impact, squaring the ball past the goalkeeper but none of his teammates were able to get to the ball before it was cleared. Ben Hodkinson pulled one back for Widnes with four minutes remaining, but Marine ultimately bagged the three points to maintain third place in the league. Marine travel to Mossley on Saturday, January 18. l Goalkeeper Shamal George has returned to Liverpool FC following the completion of his loan. Shamal, 22, made 16 appearances, keeping five clean sheets.

Firwood Waterloo show they won’t be rolled over in impressive win Firwood Waterloo 49 Douglas (Isle of Man) 20 FIRWOOD Waterloo’s unbeaten home run this season continued with an impressive 49-20 win over Douglas, writes Harry Jones. ‘Loo came into the fixture having won six out of their last seven games so confidence was high and this showed as they made a blistering start scoring two tries and two conversions. The first try was scored by Alex Ward and then the second by Gabe Davies as ‘Loo made a great break, allowing Davies to skip past the backs to put the home side in a comfortable position. Both conversions were scored by Daragh O’Brien. Douglas came back with a good response putting pressure on the Waterloo defence and got their first try and conversion. Douglas where then awarded a penalty to make the

half time score 14-10. The second half picked up the scrappy nature of the first but ‘Loo did manage to score a try, Gabe Davies’ second which was followed with another O’Brien conversion. Douglas battled back to score three tries and one conversion in quick succession, catching out the Waterloo defence to bring the score to 21-20 and leave the game in the balance. ‘Loo were being frustrated going forward but had managed to get more of a foothold in the game and get what would turn out to be a decisive try to extend their lead, coming from vicecaptain Alex Tenev with the conversion being followed up. Following this, the Douglas defence completely broke down and a relentless ‘Loo took advantage of this. Firstly the Douglas scrum back was caught taking too long on the ball by captain Jack Weir who pounced to

win the ball for him to score a try with the conversion being followed. Alex Ward then profited from another mistake to score his second try of the game and another conversion. There was still time for Luke Clifford to bag himself a try and O’Brien to score another conversion meaning he had scored all the conversions he had taken in the game. Backs coach and fly half Alex Ward said he was happy with the way they reacted to the visitors nearly levelling early in the second half. He said: “Last year we probably would have rolled over and not got back into the game. We just need to push on and I’m sure we can beat anyone in this league now.” The result also means Firwood Waterloo are unbeaten at home this season. They are now third in the league table and travel to Vale of Lune on Saturday. 2020 Champion Media Group (Waypride Ltd). All rights reserved. Printed by Newsprinters Knowsley Ltd.
