SPORTS CLUBS TEAM UP FOR NEURO CENTRE THAT SAVED TEENAGER’S LIFE

INSIDE THIS WEEK...

Football and cricket teams to hold event in aid of facility that treated young player who was injured when hit by a car

Two women arrested over arson attack

Report by Kenny Parker MAGHULL’S football and cricket clubs are teaming up to raise funds for the Walton Neuro Centre to give thanks for the care it has given to teenager Alex Moffitt who was seriously injured after being hit by a car earlier this year. Alex Moffitt, 18, who is a player for both clubs, along with St Helens Town FC suffered serious head injuries when he was walking home with friends one evening in March this year when he was struck by a car which had mounted the pavement. Alex suffered a fractured skull and bleeding to the brain as well as a broken foot, and damaged ligaments in his knee in the incident. After being in a coma for two weeks and spending time in rehabilitation Alex is now back home and is “slowly but surely” getting back to full health. A 50-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and a Merseyside Police investigation is ongoing. Andy Boyd, from Maghull FC said: “Without the amazing staff at the Walton Centre, Alex wouldn’t be with us today. “Coupled with Alex’s strength and determination, they ultimately saved his life.” The sports event has been organised to acknowledge the work carried out by the Walton Centre and also Alex’s contribution and commitment to both clubs. Organisers said: “Alex is a keen and competitive sportsman and represented both Maghull football and cricket clubs for many years with great distinction.” Both clubs have already raised £1,500 for the Walton

Sam’s death was key to launch of stricter anti-knife measures Report by Tom Martin THE murder of Crosby-born Sam Cook has played a key role in the introduction of stricter anti-knife measures for city centre clubs and bars. The former Chesterfield High School pupil was stabbed to death in October 2017 during a nightout celebrating his 21st birthday.

Margo, 86, was helping her husband escape the next door house when she fell and suffered fatal injuries Report by Kenny Parker TWO women have been arrested following the arson attack on a car in Maghull which led to the death of an 86-year-old woman. Margo Ruden was fatally injured when she fell after escaping from her home on Highgate Road next door to where a Land Rover Discovery was set alight in the early hours of Monday, August 7.

He could be living with homeless people, he could be anywhere, so please keep your eyes out for him and bring Peter back to us. Peter, please come home to us, your family miss you so much.” Mr Kerevan was wearing a short-sleeved dark blue shirt and carrying a cardigan when he went missing.

Statue link inspires Dave’s peace ride to Belgian town Report by Kenny Parker From left, Neil Thompson, Dayne O’Farrell, Lisa Wilson, Alex Scotton and Rob Ward taking part in their fundraising challenge

Friends cycle for cancer charity A TEAM of colleagues cycled from Aintree to Southport to raise funds for a national cancer charity. Neil Thompson, Dayne O’Farrell, Lisa Wilson, Alex Scotton and Rob Ward, who all work at Dunelm's Aintree store, spent three hours cycling to the chain's Southport store at Ocean Plaza last week – taking off a bit of time to stop at a pub for a drink on the way! They took a baton with them as part of the chain's Miles for Macmillan relay, between their Sefton stores. The baton was passed from Garston to Lancaster, via Brombrough, Aintree, Southport, Blackburn, Preston and Blackpool. Father of three Neil, 53, who is the deputy manager at the Aintree store, said: “We took part in the Miles for Macmillan baton relay, under strict instructions to make sure that we had fun! “Every year Dunelm have a chosen charity and Macmillan is this year’s. It is the first one that we have fund-raised for that really connected with me and that I became very passionate to fund-raise for. “Everyone knows someone who had had cancer and the work of the charity means so much, to so many people. It's one that was very close to all of our hearts. “The funds for the relay have been added straight onto our annual total for Macmillan – and so far, Dunelm’s national stores all together have raised £213,148 since February .”

More than 130 weapons handed in to police during firearms surrender A TWO week 'firearms surrender' run by Merseyside Police saw a total of 131 weapons handed in. The UK-wide Nabis firearms surrender was held from Saturday, July 20 to Sunday, August 4 and the number handed in this year in Merseyside exceeded the 122 hand-ins during the previous campaign in November 2017. The surrender was designed to give people in possession of firearms an opportunity to hand them in and of the 131 weapons given to officers, 22 were described as ‘viable firearms.’ Some of the notable figures include 36 air weapons, 19 imitation guns, 2,000 rounds of ammunition and a number of crossbows.

Detective Superintendent Richie Salter said: “Every day our officers are working proactively to remove guns and other potentially lethal weapons from our streets as part of our ongoing pledge to tackle serious and violent crime, disrupt criminal activity and put those making other people’s lives a misery behind bars. “I would like to thank members of the public who supported this surrender and handed in their unwanted or unused weapons for safe disposal. “I would also continue to ask people that if they know where weapons are being stored or who is using them to let us know so that we can take action.”

Highways England admits High Court did not rule in favour of Rimrose road option Company says that its statement of the ruling was ‘factually incorrect’ Report by Tom Martin HIGHWAYS England has backtracked after they were criticised for “misleading claims” over last year's High Court ruling on the proposed dock link road through Rimrose Valley Country Park. The Champion reported recently how a possible four year delay to the start of work on the road was blamed by Highways England on Sefton Council’s unsuccessful legal challenge. The project manager at the government-owned company, Dan Healey, was quoted as saying: “The court ruled in favour of the preferred route option but naturally the challenge has impacted on the 2019 construction date.” This sparked anger from Save Rimrose Valley campaigners, who pointed out that Mr Justice Kerr simply ruled that Highways England was not obliged to include a tunnel option in their original consultation – not that the court “ruled in favour of the preferred route.” Campaigners claimed Highways England was using “subtle wording” to “hoodwink the public”, and MP Bill Esterson accused them of “trying to pull a fast one” to influence public opinion. Highways England has now been forced to issue a clarification under pressure from Sefton Council’s Chief Legal and Democratic Officer.

Bill Esterson MP at Rimrose Valley.

In its new communication, Highways England admitted that “one of the statements for the A5036 Port of Liverpool scheme was factually incorrect” and confirmed that “the court did not express any views of the preferred route option.” Stuart Bennett, from Save Rimrose Valley, said: “This was an extremely serious error. The original language had potential to influence public opinion, as it suggested the court had effectively endorsed a road through Rimrose Valley. It did no such thing. “It would appear to be the latest example of Highways England using subtle wording which is aimed at convincing the public that the road is a formality, when it is anything but. At best, this is shoddy; at worst, it could be seen as an attempt to hoodwink the public that its route has received some kind of legal backing.” MP Esterson added: “The wording from Highways England is important and has led people to wonder if they were trying to pull a fast one. “There has been no vindication of the building of a road through Rimrose Valley, which is still opposed by residents, councillors and MPs.”

‘Short term pain of junction revamp will be long term gain’ Project aims to reduce congestion and provide safer pathways for pedestrians and cyclists Report by Kenny Parker SHORT term pain of roadworks on Northway will lead to long term gain, say Sefton Council officials. Sefton Council cabinet member for locality services John Fairclough said on a visit to the site: “With any type of improvement work there is short term pain for long term gain. “We are trying to complete the work with as little disruption to residents as possible.” Sefton Council secured £2.35 million from the Liverpool City Region Single Investment Fund for the project. The improvements involve widening the carriage way, and upgrading signal crossings and shared footway/cycle ways. The work on the A59/ Dover Road/ Liverpool Road South junction should help ease the congestion residents experience on the route and improve safety. The scheme has included purchasing of land, planning applications, diversionary works and road closures.

Diversion works have already started with the main junction improvements works due to start in October. The proposals are intended to improve traffic flows on what is part of the City Region’s Key Route Network. The scheme includes widening the road on the northbound approach to the junction to provide a longer right turn lane to Dover Road. The widening will also mean a shared use pedestrian/cycle path can be provided connecting to the existing regional cycle route network between Maghull and Aintree through Switch Island. Upgraded signal controlled crossing facilities will be provided across Liverpool Road South and the A59 Northway for pedestrians and cyclists. The Dover Road arm of the junction will also be widened slightly to provide a separate left turn lane for vehicles heading towards Switch Island, as well as a straight on / right turn lane. In addition, signal controlled crossing facilities to allow pedestrians to cross Dover Road will also be provided. Molyneux ward Councillor Paula Murphy said: “I am pleased my ward has secured more investment and I hope it makes life easier for residents to leave and return to their homes in what has been described to me as a torturous task when trying to do so.”

Councillor calls for path to station to be opened A PARISH councillor says he will keep on pressing for the promised footpath/cyclepath from Park Lane to Maghull North railway station to be opened up as soon as possible. Lydiate parish councillor Tony Robertson said: “The path was actually laid out back when the Ashworth South site was going to be a new prison so why on earth the present housing developer needs to restrict access to the station via it beats me. “Sefton Highways tell me it’s down to Persimmon Homes to say when the path becomes accessible and from that I’m guessing it forms a part of the site which will be adopted at some point by the Council along with roads and pavements.”

Drug gang violence presents ‘a serious challenge for police’ Patrols stepped up and searches carried out - but most victims refuse to help in investigations Report by Tom Martin COMPETING drug gangs using guns and knives to settle disputes are making it “a challenging time” for police in south Sefton but they say they are stepping up patrols and carrying operations to tackle the problem. The ongoing Operation Target has seen more officers patrolling areas including Bootle, Netherton and Litherland with a number of open land and canal searches being carried out to seize weapons. The Champion has reported how officers have found machetes, tasers and knives during these searches, and have also used arrest warrants. Superintendent Graeme Robson said: “We know there are a number of competing crime groups in south Sefton who have access to knives and guns and using violence to settle disputes and protect their illicit trade in drugs. “Our primary job is to keep the communities safe, and these incidents have presented us with some serious challenges. “But I believe we have risen to the challenge. People will have got used to seeing officers in their areas responding to those incidents. “We have ramped up the pressure on those criminals with a number of arrests, warrants, days of action and gang injunctions. “During warrants, our officers have identified opportunities to help children living at some addresses by referring them to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).

Police have stepped up patrols in south Sefton.

“We are determined to ensure young people who are surrounded by criminal activity through no fault of their own do not view a life of criminality as attractive or inevitable.” He added, however, that in the vast majority of incidents, the victims themselves have not assisted the police in their investigations. He said: “We cannot tackle this issue alone and police our way out of it. We need everyone affected by violent crime to stand with us and tell us everything they know. “I appeal directly to those people who care deeply about the victims in these cases, the families and friends of young men who have sustained knife and gunshot wounds, or been the victim of assaults. “Do you want this life for your son? If your home is being used to store weapons, or a member of your household is involved in organised crime, they could be exposing you, your family or your house to the risk of harm.”

So how did Champion reporter Danielle get on with her plastic-free July? JULY’S ‘Plastic Challenge’ called on residents in the borough to try to get through the month without using any single-use plastics. Taking part in the challenge was Champion reporter Danielle Thompson - but how did she get on? The Marine Conservation Society’s annual Plastic Challenge certainly threw up some interesting dilemmas for our reporter. Here’s her account of the month. ‘I signed up to the Plastic Challenge confident I would be able to reach the end of it without using more than a handful of plastic items. How wrong I was. By the end of the very first week, I realised that I would need to create a ‘sin list’ of plastics that I was simply unable to do without. Yes, I know! Firstly, before I started doing anything radical with my kitchen and bathroom cupboards, I popped in for a chat with Victoria Hughes who owns OmNom Zero Waste on Tulketh Street, to ask her advice on the best ways to avoid single-use plastics and help change my mindset on recycling. She told me that she uses the ‘Five Rs of zero waste: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot’ - in that order only. She suggested that I start small, use what I already have and ‘buy only what you need’. So for example, instead of running to your cupboards and throwing out all of the plastic items you can see, keep them and as they ‘die off’ replace them with sustainable alternatives. At Southport’s monthly outdoor market, I was able to buy some lovely soap-infused sponges and a shampoo bar, which came in

Champion reporter Danielle with the ecologically-friendly soaps

a brown paper bag and smelt amazing, as well as being waste-free. A friend bought me a microfibre makeup removing cloth, so that got rid of more bottles and I bought an Ecoegg - a laundry egg that lasts for 720 washes and is a complete replacement for detergent and fabric conditioner, and I used coffee grounds as a scrub to eliminate my use of microplastic beads. So far, so good. But I fell down on moisturiser, as I couldn't find any that didn't come in plastic – and the same issue with deodorant and toothpaste - bicarbonate of soda is just grim and, secondly, comes in a plastic tub, so I see no reasonable difference. You can

buy reusable pouches of it online, but these would involve hundreds of miles of travel. I swapped buying meat and fish in plastic trays for taking my own tubs to my local butchers and fishmongers in Birkdale and Ainsdale, who were very supportive when I explained my task – and Bates’ Dairy still deliver fresh milk in glass bottles. One Maghull reader, Helen McGuire, emailed me in some great tips: burying tea bags enriches your soil, and you can make your own face mask with coffee grounds or use them as a fertiliser. Another reader told me to use smashed eggshells in my garden to keep away snails from my favourite plants. I tripped up on a few things during the month. As well as the toothpaste and deodorant, I bought a packet of bacon on a hangover and it didn't occur to me until I got home that it was vacuum packed in plastic, as well as a bottle of water when it was hot and also bought a coffee to take away and forgot my bamboo travel mug, which was a shame. I also still bought bread in a plastic wrapper, although it might be possible to ask for it to be put in a tub. Overall, I found that my behaviour changed over time and I will be keeping most of my good habits (although not my bamboo toothbrush), especially taking leftovers to work for lunch in my tubs, which saved me time and money as well as eradicating a lot of my plastics use. I’d say once you've initially done the swap, it is easy to carry on without it affecting your life too much – and definitely worth it to help the environment.’

Boxing aims to instill Dunningsbridge Road is discipline in youngsters filthy from end to end The correspondent who denigrated your promotion of the new Waterloo Amateur Boxing Club, whilst requesting a more balanced approach from the Champion, managed to get a number of his pet hates off his chest. His antipathies included macho values, the sport and art of boxing, the armed forces, veterans, army cadets, military conflict, politicians, Royalty and the Americans. The main source of his anger seemed to be your coverage of the launch of the new boxing club, the aims of which are to instill in local youngsters the skills of pugilism

the disciplines of self control and self defence, physical fitness and camaraderie. At the same time it wishes to provide an alternative to the youth yob culture afflicting the local community, also pointed out in the Champion. Maybe Mr Angry should put his money and effort into creating one of the community centres he suggests, which is what the Waterloo Amateur Boxing Club is attempting to do. Shaun Farmer, Waterloo ABC Level 1 Boxing Coach

Can anyone tell me if the road cleaning policy in Bootle has been scrapped? I use Dunningsbridge Road every day to commute to work, and over the past eight years I have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of debris from the Seaforth dock end to Switch Island. This debris is mostly wrecked car bits, smashed headlights, bumpers, number plates, complete front ends in some places. It is absolutely filthy from end to end. Not only that, but the central reservations and paved areas along the route are up to five feet high with weeds and grass, as is Beech Road roundabout.

Last winter an incident occurred near the HGV inspection site on Switch Island. A motorist had wrecked five six foot lengths of the steel railings, and to this day the mangled railings remain in the same state. God help any motor cyclist should they lose their balance and fall onto it. So come on MPs, get your faces out of the paper and onto the streets and give us hard working council tax payers the service we are paying for!

Re: Hedges hazard for pedestrians. I live in Maghull and I have reported overgrown trees and hedges on Church Road, in Maghull, two years ago. Sefton Council and Highways England say they have looked at it but nothing has been done. You have to step into the road to avoid it. Is this what we are paying our council tax for?

More memories of Swalwell’s barbers Reading Tony Hoare’s recent letter about Swalwell’s Barbers in the Champion brought many memories back for me. I worked for George Swalwell in the 1960s. George had five shops in total, in Linacre Road, Knowsley Road, Linacre Lane, Aintree Road (where I served my apprenticeship) and Stanley Road (where I worked for eight years) so he had the monopoly over men’s haircuts in Bootle! He had the contract at Walton Prison and Hindley Green Borstal. The young men in Walton had to have their hair cut short then they got a new governor as the Beatles were hitting the charts and the prisoners could have the hairstyles they wanted. George got paid three shillings for every prisoner who sat down and we got paid a pound from George. We were cutting about 60 every visit, some just having their fringe trimmed. I would also like to wish Don and Phil a long and happy retirement (I would imagine Don has worked nearly 60 years as a barber in Bootle).

A high housing quota for Maghull Your headline reports on ‘Revised plans ‘ for housing development on land East of Maghull. We are told that ‘the scale and character of proposals will contribute to Sefton’s housing needs.’ A resident of Maghull such as myself might ask how this ‘scale’ of development (1,696 homes in addition to sundry and significant other recent building in our township) compares with the borough’s ‘quota’ and its constituent communities? To add insult to injury, the building will be at the sacrifice of prime agricultural land. Even our local MP described the original plan as ‘disproportionate’ to/for Maghull. I look forward to contributing rigorously in the consultation process. George Barnes, Maghull,

Hedges are a growing hazard

Young people should show respect for war memorials I live in the Crosby area and work in Liverpool city centre. On a recent sunny day at around 1.30pm outside St Nicholas’ Church, in the public garden area in Liverpool city centre three young men in their 20s, who were all dressed the same wearing black t-shirts and jeans were leaning against the garden’s war memorial. The monument is part of a naval tribute in Liverpool. The three were also putting their pints of beer to rest on top of the statue. A number of tourists were passing through the garden at this time and stared at them with shock and amazement at the sight of these yobs using a stone monument as a bar.

The young men looked over to the tourists and carried on with their conversations. Please can this casual disrespect and sacrilege of war monuments to fallen heroes stop. I did not have my phone with me otherwise I would have taken a photo or uploaded a video as evidence of this example of disrespect. If I come accross these lads repeating this behaviour I will attempt to capture this moment on my camera phone. Once I have evidence I will risk approaching these youths and ask for them to exercise more restraint and respect. Damian Law, Crosby

The recent letter from Tony Hoare brought some memories back of Swalwells barbers although my dad used to take me to Spofforth’s Barbers on Bridge Road. Sad to see GBS has closed. However if its memories of itchy hairs down your back when your dad dragged you to the barbers before a school term then Spofforths or Spoffs as it is now is still going and is run by a nice lad called Jay who kept the name when he took over a few years ago. Nice to see the old name still going and the memories of those school term haircuts remains to this day. Thanks Jay for keeping things traditional, a rare quality these days. J Baker, Netherton

Barbers’ names were Phil and Don Re: My recent letters about Swalwell’s barber shop. The names of the two barbers are Phil and Don not Len and Don as I stated in my original letter. My apologies. Tony Hoare, Bootle.

Community groups can apply for police funding COMMUNITY groups in Sefton which work to divert young people away from crime and antisocial behaviour during the autumn half-term can bid for a small cash boost. Merseyside Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy will release a new round of funding from the Police Property Act Fund (PPA), which allows money raised from the sale of unclaimed stolen goods or property recovered by the police to be used for good causes. A total of £45,000 is available from the fund for one-off grants for organisations which are committed to improving community safety, reducing crime or supporting victims. It is anticipated that some groups will use the money to organise events around Halloween and Bonfire Night.

Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy said: “Through these grants, I want to help alleviate these issues and prevent local young people from making mistakes they may regret in the future. Once a young person gets a criminal record it can blight their future prospects. “By using these grants to fund a wide range of fun, safe, organised activities I hope we can prevent young people from getting drawn into any activities which could become intimidating, antisocial or even dangerous to other members of the community.” All applications must be submitted online via the Community Foundation for Merseyside by 4pm on August 30. Visit the website http://www.cfmerseyside.org. uk/funds/police-property-act-fund to apply.

I own a near perfect recycling machine - it’s my two dogs, Tina and Cinders... IT’S all a lot of rubbish really. When it comes to recycling - something of which I truly approve - I’m still not certain for example of what constitutes recyclable plastic, and I am still concerned as to what and where all this recycling takes place. Since the separate paper collection and the food caddie finished, it seems to me that the ‘general’ rubbish bag must contain such an awful mess that pulling the wheat (if there is any) from the chaff must be difficult in the extreme. I remember, years ago when recycling was in its infancy locally, having a conversation with an elderly woman on the subject. She too said she was all for the idea of the scheme, but said: “I’m d***ed if I’m going to start washing my rubbish!� Anyway, I think I now own the near perfect recycling machine for food waste. It’s called a couple of dogs, Tina and Cinders. Nearly six years ago, after the death of my brother George, I was trying to find ways of saving money. And one of the better schemes I came up with was to steam as much of my food as possible, a plan which was not only healthy but also saved quite a lot of energy in that a complete dinner for one could be cooked using but one pan. Then, about three years ago I watched a television programme about commercial dog food, whether it was good for your beloved pet. And the ‘expert’ wheeled on for this comfortingly said that most of the dog foods available, both tinned and dry, did a pretty good job - which cheered me since I was using the dry dog food which both dogs seemed to enjoy. And it gave me an idea. The one major point this expert made was that most dog foods were somewhat lacking in sufficient vegetable content. Why not, I cunningly thought, put the potato peelings, ditto carrots and indeed the bits left over when any veggies are prepared for the pan, in the bottom, water compartment of the steamer and add the resultant ‘soup’ to the doggy dinner? And it has worked. No surprise that Cinders eats up her cabbage and cauliflower (she’ll eat anything remotely edible, plus the wrappers). Tina though is more particular about what goes in her tummy but -surprise - she obviously relishes just about any vegetable she is confronted with. Obviously they’ll also accept any left-overs from my meal, so I am in a position where, apart from the odd chicken bone, just about every scrap of food is usefully used! And at the same time I can save a little extra by giving them slightly less of their ‘official’ food. Mind you, what dogs (or at least my two) seem actually really to enjoy amazes me. Tina, for instance, has a particular fondness for curry - the hotter the better - and doesn’t even make for her water bowl when she’s done. And I’m not quite sure how dogs eat spaghetti that simply disappears, hoover-like, in seconds. Coming back to recycling in general though, those huge bin wagons they have nowadays, with six or even eight wheels and a bogging great diesel engine up front, along with a small army of support vehicles for various specialised recycling projects, can’t be doing much for the environment. If we are to have electric cars and buses, why not electrify refuse collection lorries? In fact, I think we are still a long way off practical electric traction for long distance heavy loads, so perhaps it’s about time we turned once again to our railways, where one (electric) loco can haul the equivalent of perhaps a couple of dozen HGVs. And for that matter, one bus load equals perhaps 26 cars or so... Food for thought perhaps, or should that be food for dogs in our modern, non-polluting, recyclable world?

Report by Tom Martin A MUCH-LOVED mum from Litherland who died of cancer has inspired her husband and daughter to shave their heads to raise money for charity in her memory. Jean Foster, 81, was diagnosed with cancer in her lung and spine and passed away in May. There was more heartbreak for the family when her husband Tommy Foster, 85, was also diagnosed with terminal cancer after it was detected in his bowel, liver, stomach and both lungs. Tommy and daughter Wendy have decided to ‘brave the shave’ and get their hair shaved off to raise money for Cancer Research and Zoe’s Place. They will be joined by family friend Janet Maher in the fundraising effort. Wendy said: “In March this year after falling ill and being treated with fluid on the lungs our mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer in her lung and spine and was given two months to live. “After another bad event we found out it had gone to her brain and on May 6 mum passed away peacefully with all her family around her. “In the time of mum's illness dad had a fall and after many weeks was still in pain and the outcome of this was dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer as well. “We take it day to day with dad.

ENTERTAINMENT

See Lyn Paul for last time in Blood Brothers BILL Kenwright’s production of the international smash hit musical Blood Brothers returns to the Liverpool Empire from Tuesday, September 3 until Saturday, September 14. Starring Lyn Paul in the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone for the final time, she will be joined by Joel Benedict as Eddie, Danielle Corlass as Linda, Danny Taylor as Sammy and Chloe Taylor as Mrs Lyons. Alexander Patmore returns as Mickey alongside Robbie Scotcher as the narrator. The rest of the cast for Blood Brothers includes Tim Churchill, Graham Martin, Gemma Brodrick, Hannah Barr Graeme Kinniburgh, Shaun McCourt and Connor Bannister. Considered ‘One of the best musicals ever written’ (Sunday Times), Blood Brothers, written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell has triumphed across the Globe. Scooping up no fewer than four awards for Best Musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway. This epic tale of Liverpool life started as a play, performed at a Liverpool comprehensive school in 1981 before opening at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1983. It has since completed sell out seasons in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Japan and ran in London’s West End for 24 years, exceeding 10,000 performances. One of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. Blood Brothers tells the moving story of

A scene from Blood Brothers

twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret. The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True. When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet. It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and despera-

tion, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show ’s shattering climax. Willy Russell is one of this country’s leading contemporary dramatists. His theatre credits include Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine, Breezeblock Park and Our Day Out. Educating Rita, originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, enjoyed a two-year run in the West End and was made into a film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters. Shirley Valentine also made the move from stage to screen in an enormously popular film starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.

Final cast members for By The Waters of Liverpool revealed THE final three cast members for the Spring 2020 UK Tour of Helen Forrester’s By The Waters Of Liverpool have been revealed. After a successful premiere run at the Liverpool Empire Theatre last autumn, the play will now make its way round the country bringing Helen’s story to life on stage. Star of stage and screen Sian Reeves is joining the tour. Sian is best known for her television roles in Emmerdale, Mount Pleasant, Still Open All Hours, Lunch Monkeys, Hope Springs, City Lights, Where The Heart Is, and Cutting It. Hollyoaks’ Parry Glasspool and Lucy Dixon, from Waterloo Road and Hollyoaks, join Sian to complete the cast. The cast also includes the recently announced Mark Moraghan and Eric Potts. Mark Moraghan will play Helen’s Father. Mark previously played Father in the 2007 and 2009 adaptations of Twopence To Cross The Mersey. He returned to play the role in By The Waters Of Liverpool in 2018. Mark is best known for his roles in Holby City, Coronation Street and Brookside. Coronation Street and Doctor Who’s Eric Potts will play Mr Ellis, Helen’s fiery-tempered boss. Other confirmed cast members are Lynn Francis as the Deaconess; Danny O’Brien as Harry O’Dwyer; Chloe McDonald as Fiona (Helen’s sister); and Roy Carruthers as The Detective. By The Waters Of Liverpool is the stunning production from the team that brought audiences Helen Forres-

ter’s timeless story, Twopence To Cross The Mersey. To celebrate what would have been Helen Forrester’s 100th Birthday, the 11-week tour opens at New Brighton Floral Pavilion, in Wirral in March 2020 – just a few miles from where the writer was born. It will be at Southport Theatre on March 27 and March 28. Sian Reeves will play Helen’s Mother, Parry Glasspool will play Helen’s brother Alan, while Helen Forrester will be portrayed by Lucy Dixon. West Bromwich born Sian Reeves is an original cast member of the 1985 stage production of Les Misérables. She also later appeared in the 25th anniversary performance at London’s O2. Sian Reeves commented: “I’m thrilled to be part of the telling of this wonderful book.” Writer and friend of Helen Forrester, Rob Fennah has written both the stage play versions of Twopence To Cross The Mersey and By The Waters Of Liverpool. During the Great Depression, Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market and the family were suddenly thrown into poverty. Leaving behind the nannies, servants and comfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, the Forrester’s chose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock. Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave and desperate to escape. By The Waters Of Liverpool is a period

Group launching 46th season of concerts IN September Parbold Douglas Music launches its 46th season of international concerts in the “acoustically superb” Auditorium at Parbold Village Hall – one of Lancashire best kept secrets. The evenings present a wide range of musical styles, played by some of the most talented musicians from across the world. Parbold Douglas Music has a reputation for presenting the best of the new stars. This season opens with a rousing exuberant event on Saturday, September 21 with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra’s Ambassadors Sextet. This ensemble of jazz stars, all in their early 20s, will play the swinging melodies from The Great American Songbook by George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and other famous names. The New Year will be greeted by fanfares and music for brass from across the ages by the eleven members of the North-West-based Intrada. This season PDML presents international concert pianists at four different stages in their careers on the world’s concert-platforms. In spring two musicians at the start of their careers will perform in February and April; one is Eric Lu, the young American winner of the 2018 Leeds International Competition, and in February, Can Çakmur, the even younger Turkish winner of Japan’s Hamamatsu International competition.

drama set in the 1930s. The story opens in 1935. Helen Forrester is 16years-old, and fighting a bitter battle with her parents for the right to educate herself and go out to work. By 1939, Helen is now aged 20 and with Britain on the brink of war, she has never been kissed by a man. But things start looking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love. By The Waters Of Liverpool by Helen Forrester has sold more than a million books.

In the autumn, in November, Parbold presents two young international pianists who, in just a few years, have established incredible reputations and hordes of fans for their musicality and exciting programmes. The Ukrainian concert pianist, Anna Fedorova, who has over 23 million followers for her YouTube performance of the Rachmaninov Second Piano concerto, will make her third appearance in Parbold in a programme of Rachmaninov and ends with the dazzling virtuoso arrangement by the great pianist, Mikhail Pletnev of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Later in November the Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov, muchadmired, especially by other musicians, will bring the same programme of Chopin, Debussy and the pianistic block-buster Mussorgsky ’s Pictures at an Exhibition, that he is playing at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, New York.

MOTORS

Why has Mercedes now given the gig of running the A-Class to poor old Clippy? “IT LOOKS like you’re writing a column for The Champion. Can I help?” Anyone even vaguely familiar with Clippy, the relentlessly cheery - and endlessly irritating - virtual assistant for Microsoft Word will know how I feel this week. Every time you tried even the simplest task, like opening your latest missive with “Dear ”, would instantly be met with a bombardment of questions about exactly how you’d like to write a letter. Thankfully Clippy was quickly marched into Bill Gates’ office and promptly issued with his P45 many years ago, but I’m beginning to wonder whether he’s since managed to get another job – this time, residing in the infotainment system of the latest Mercedes A-Class. I’ve just spent several hundred miles in the company of a mid-range A180d, but it felt more like a shift rather than a drive. When all of its considerable amount of in-car tech is up and running it might as well be a work station on wheels – perhaps with a photocopier and a water cooler in the corner – than a car. Its pièce de résistance is a double-screen, interactive display that starts behind the steering wheel and runs right across to the centre of the dashboard and controls every function imaginable in the A-Class, from the cruise control to how

much bass you’d like on the tunes being played through its Bluetooth connection. It is very cleverly engineered and I’m sure that if I spent about a month going through every submenu fiddling with the settings it would be finetuned to match every minute facet of my personality, but because I hadn’t – and because it was doing its best to try and guess them – it did make me wonder why Mercedes had given the important gig of running the A-Class to poor old Clippy. Leaving a car park, for instance, does not require a feed from four car-mounted cameras to be instantly fired up – not when I have mirrors, windows and a moveable neck that can already do all of that. Nor do I want, when I’m squeezing through a tight gap, a collision warning system to chime in at the precise moment that I’m concentrating. It’s also not terribly intuitive to use – it’s controlled via the steering wheel, a touch screen and a sensor pad on the centre console, the latter of which is mounted right next to the cupholders. Which means you end up accidentally exiting the satnav when you grab your cup of coffee. It even has a wrist support to stop you getting repetitive strain injury. I’m used to these doing an eight-hour stint in an office, but in a car? All of which meant I ended up doing what most Microsoft Word users did about 20 years ago – switching off Clippy altogether – and driving around with as much of the in-car tech as possible shut down. As soon as I did that I actually enjoyed the AClass for what it really is – it’s beautifully built, decent to drive, a lot nicer to look at than the previous model and, in A180d form at least, equipped with a turbodiesel that delivers plenty

David reckons the Mercedes A-Class is a good drive, but the gadgets are a bit overbearing

of mid-range thump on motorways and dual carriageways. I reckon it’s the best A-Class so far, once you let the engineering – rather than the tech – do the talking. Brilliant, I’ve made it to the end of this week’s

column without Clippy chiming in! “It looks like you’re signing off for another week. Can I hel…” David Simister is the editor of Classic Car Weekly

Mazda’s new optional extras The firm Mazda has launched two new optional extra packs for its MX-5 sports car. Order one with the Cup Pack – yours for £1,995 - and you’ll

get lowered suspension, a stainless steel exhaust system, a sports silencer and BBS alloy wheels. The Design Pack, which costs £4,675,

gives you all of those extras but adds cosmetic tweaks for the body and interior, and more luxurious cabin trim. Go to mazda.co.uk to find out more.

Vauxhall is pitching the Hybrid 4 version of its Grandland X at eco conscious drivers

Grandland X is now available as a hybrid VAUXHALL’S Grandland X is now available as a plug-in hybrid – meaning you can charge it up at the mains, like an electric car is charged.

Prices for this eco-friendly version of the five-door crossover, called the Hybrid 4, start at £35,590, and there are four different trim levels to choose from.

The new model, which comes with a 3.3kW electric motor and a back-up engine, can manage 32 miles on electricity alone, and will arrive here next January.

All-electric SEAT will be introduced by end of year

SEAT is planning to re-engineer the Mii as an electric car

SEAT is getting ready to launch an all-electric version of its smallest model. The Mii city car – closely related to VW’s Up and Skoda’s CitiGo – is due to be introduced in zeroemissions form towards the end of the year, and is the Spanish manufacturer’s first electric

production car. There’s no word on UK prices yet, but expect them to be slightly higher than those of the petrolpowered models, which start at £11,905 for the three-door model. SEAT also says it’s looking to introduce electriconly versions of its other models in the near future.

Lindfield on target as Marine await Dunston in league season opener Marine 1 Witton Albion 1 MARINE warmed up for Saturday’s league opener with a draw in their final pre-season friendly. The Mariners will begin life in the Northern Premier League Division One North West with a home match against Dunston when they will hope to start the season brightly and pick up three points as they begin their battle for promotion. Witton began the game on the front foot on Saturday and had an early chance on goal as when James Murray had an effort well saved by Marine's trialist goalkeeper. Two former Mariners linked up well as Murray played in James Short on the left and the full back's cross was nodded wide by another ex-Marine man Will Jones. The deadlock was broken on 20

minutes as Albion took the lead in somewhat fortunate circumstances. A trialist swung in a ball from the right which caught out the Marine goalkeeper, looped over his head and into the top corner. Marine grew stronger in the second half and put the Witton defence until a sustained period of pressure. James Barrigan had an effort narrowly wide of the target and Craig Lindfield came the closest as he saw a powerful driven shot bounce back out off the woodwork. The goal finally came with 15 minutes remaining when Lindfield received a neat cut back and curled a right-footed shot around Renshaw and into the back of the net. The Albion goalposts were struck again in the final stages, a piledriver hitting the underside of the crossbar before Renshaw was able to clear his lines as Marine pressed for a winner.

Action from Bootle’s home league match with Skelmersdale United which ended in a draw.

Bucks just need to go back to basics: Doran Eccleshill United 2 Bootle 1 BOOTLE manager Joe Doran believes his side must go back to basics to kick start their season. The Bucks remain winless after being dumped out of the Emirates FA Cup by Eccleshill United on Saturday. Despite the hosts playing 85 minutes with ten men, a brace from Antony Brown condemned Doran’s side to their first defeat of the season. Arriving in Yorkshire after another 1-1 draw, this time in the league fixture against Skelmersdale United on Tuesday night, hope was high that the Bucks could finally claim their first win of the season. And those hopes were soon boosted when the hosts were reduced to 10-men after five minutes, with Johnny Irving seeing red for a late challenge on Liam Loughlin. But three minutes later the home side opened the scoring when Brown finished from an acute angle after ghosting through the Bootle defence. The Bucks rallied to the setback and began to carve out openings at will.

But in what is becoming a familiar theme to their season, the Bucks lacked the composure needed when it mattered most. Four minutes later Bootle did finally find the back of the net when a cross from the right found Lee Hughes inside the box before the Bucks number seven unleashed a superb first-time volley into the far corner of the net. Nine minutes later though and Brown struck again to put the home side back in front. Jack McGovern could only parry Matty Stor’s effort, with Brown reacting quickest to fire the rebound home and seal his side’s place in the next round. A disappointed Bucks boss Joe Doran said afterwards that of the three games so far, the only time Bootle have played how he wants them to was in the last 25 minutes against Skelmersdale last Tuesday night. He added: “We played incisive football in that period and got to the byline and put crosses in. “Let’s make no bones about it we’ve had a bad start and we need to put it right soon. “It’s not a case of overreacting I think it’s a case of getting back to basics and doing the basics right, because at the moment I don’t think we’re doing the basics right.”

Purples survive scare to reach next round

Maghull lose at windy South Liverpool

City of Liverpool 3 Campion 1

South Liverpool 2 Maghull 1

CITY of Liverpool survived a scare in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round to come from behind to beat Bradford-based Campion. Despite the opposition playing two steps below the hosts in the football pyramid, they took the

lead on 24 minutes as Andy McGreadie nodded home from close range with a free header. The Purps levelled on 57 minutes through a 25 yard freekick from John McGrath and took the lead when Karl Clair showed nice feet to back heel the ball over the line after good play by McGrath again.

Substitute and Purps’ record goalscorer Tom Peterson wrapped up the victory on 81 minutes with a header. A home tie in the next round was just reward for City Of Liverpool, who open their Northern Premier League campaign with a trip to Marske in the North East this Saturday.

Bootle stay top after washout WET weather once again ruined another round of league fixtures in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division Bootle remain 31points clear at the top after their eagerly anticipated home clash against second placed Ormskirk was abandoned on Saturday without a ball being bowled. Formby’s home match against Northern was called off after 23.4 overs with Formby on 82-0. Southport & Birkdale’s match at third placed New Brighton ended in a closely fought draw after S&B were bowled out

for 98 with Ashraf Nawab taking 6-22 with the ball and the hosts had 19 overs to reach their target and ended on 88-8. In the Second Division, Burscough’s home fixture against Maghull and Hightown St Mary’s home match against Sutton were abandoned This weekend’s local LDCC fixtures (noon start): Formby v Orrell RT, Northern v Lytham, Ormskirk v Colwyn Bay, S&B v Bootle, Ainsdale v Birkenhead Park, Rainford v Fl’d Hesketh, Maghull v H’n St Mary’s, Norley Hall v Burscough and Southport Trinity v Liverpool.

MAGHULL’S opening game of the West Cheshire League season ended in defeat in awful conditions on the banks of the River Mersey last Saturday. The near gale force wind dominated proceedings with all the

goals being scored in the first half. The hosts took a two goal lead before Jordan Holmes reduced the arrears but despite having chances Joe Burns team could not get back on level terms. Meanwhile in Wallasey Maghull’s youthful Reserve team came back from a goal behind

before running out 4-1victors at Ashville in their opening Division Two match. Dave Lynch Connor Rankin and substitute Charlie Taylor with a brace were on target for Mike Cummins outfit. On Saturday Maghull play their first home game when Capenhurst Villa are the visitors, kick off 3pm.

Belles are looking to play hardball FIRWOOD Belles Women’s team travelled to St Peters School, York to make history by playing their first hardball cricket tournament in the Kia Smash after only being launched this February. The Belles entered the tournament following their Liverpool District League good early season form where they had overcome rivals Colwyn Bay, Liverpool, Old Xaverians, Maghull and HIghtown St Marys with bowler Jackie Westhead showing good form having claimed a treble-wicket

maiden earlier in the year at softball cricket. Captain Jackie Rose and her team needed to push their nerves aside as they moved onto the next stage of development encouraging the women to play full hardball cricket. The girls did not disappoint after accepting the challenge especially when they came up against such strong, well established women’s teams from both Leyland and Wrenthornpe who each had a number of county players in their side.

www.champnews.com

The Belles where beaten in both games, Wrenthorpe then progressed to the Northern area final where they were then beaten by Sessay Emeralds. Firwood Belles are now looking for other women’s teams locally who want to make the transition from softball to hardball by organising friendly games without having to travel to another county to enhance their knowledge of the game. Any teams wishing to arrange a game to play should email info@firwoodbootlecricketclub.com
