Valentine’s Day wedding ‘just the ticket’ for plucky pensioners

RAFFLE DRAW PRIZE CATCH! Jill, 68, overcomes battle with MS to marry Falklands War veteran who climbed Mount Everest at age of... 75!

Willow at his home in Southport.

‘Superpooch' owner in funding plea THE owner of a ‘superpooch’ which has spent years helping two stroke victims, is appealing for donations to help pay for the dog to undergo urgent chemotherapy treatment. Willow, a twelve year old black Labrador from the USA, found a new calling in life 4,000 miles away here in Southport, where he cares for an elderly married couple who were both struck down by strokes.

Tony and Jill - getting married this Valentine’s Day.

A VALENTINE’S Day wedding is the fairy tale end to a chance meeting between two love-struck plucky pensioners. Jill Cohen, 68, and former marine commando, Tony Warren, 76, from Hesketh Bank, are due to tie the knot at Banks Methodist Church this week. It was a moment Jill thought would never happen as just three years ago she had been confined to a wheelchair for ten years after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Tony, meanwhile, was busy climbing 6,400 metres up Mount Everest - at the age of 75!

But romance stepped in when Tony bought a raffle ticket off Jill when he visited Rufford Old Hall where Jill works as a volunteer. Former teacher, Jill, from Ormskirk, lost her first husband to cancer 21 years ago. She moved into sheltered housing because of her disability, having been told she had a form of MS in 1998. She was unable to feel her legs below the knee and as her condition worsened, Jill ballooned to 25 stone and was taking insulin for her diabetes. As her condition deteriorated, she was concerned that the heavy medication she was taking wasn’t helping her chances of recovery, and on medical advice she stopped taking all the morphine she was on and took another pain killer which, she claims, transformed her life. The following months, and helped by ‘vigorous’ dieting, Jill’s weight came tumbling down considerably. She told the Champion: “I was on a terribly heavy dose of morphine, I was sleeping my life away. As soon as I came off it I woke up! Continued inside

Report by Tom Martin

A ROGUE trader from Sefton who conned customers into thinking his company was ‘gas safe’ has been fined more than ÂŁ2,500. Daniel Howarth pleaded guilty to four offences under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations act and one offence under the Consumer Rights Act at South Sefton Magistrates Court. Offences including the unauthorised use of a ‘Gas Safe’ logo on his website and forging building certificates supposedly from Sefton Council saying his work at a property complied with regulations. The case, says Sefton Council, highlights the ‘absolute importance’ of double-checking who you get to work for you. Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council’s Cabinet member for Regulation and Compliance, said: “Victims of this rogue trader are

still counting the costs of his forgery and we are pleased that our Trading Standards team have managed to bring him to justice. “We urge residents to remain vigilant and if they suspect a rogue trader is operating in the area to get in touch and we can investigate. “Residents should always be on their guard against bogus workers and we need the public's help to catch rogue traders. “This case goes to show the absolute importance of double checking who is working on your property. A full list of Gas Safe

and NICIEIC approved contractors are available via their respective websites.â€? Howarth tried to pass Crosby Property Maintenance off as being ‘Gas Safe’ (previously Corgi) registered as well as approved by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting. When challenged about works he carried out at two different properties, he produced fake building certificates, claiming to be from the Local Authority, confirming that building work had been assessed by qualified building control officers and deemed to be safe. In reality the works were unsafe and homeowners were faced with a bill for further remedial works in order to comply with Building Regulations. During an investigation into complaints, Howarth gave false information to Sefton’s Trading Standards officers. He was fined ÂŁ1,505 and ordered to pay costs of ÂŁ1,031.50, totalling ÂŁ2,536.50.

Owner of ‘superpooch’ in plea for funding help From page 1 Willow is a full time therapy dog to pensioners Henry and May Kennedy-Skipton, who live with their daughter Tara, in Birkdale. The couple suffered debilitating strokes within hours of each other in 2014 and were taken to Southport Hospital where they were cared for by the stroke team. Tara flew back from her life in America and brought her pet dog, Willow, with her so she could begin caring for May and Henry. It was then that Willow became a therapy dog – rarely leaving their side and alerting Tara to any sudden changes in May or Henry’s health. He can also bark when alerted to a danger and provides comfort to the elderly couple in their time of need. But now Tara has shared the devastating news that Willow has been diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma as well as overactive thyroid glands. He is being treated at an animal oncology hospital near Liverpool, where they removed the tumour and he is now starting his second round of chemotherapy. Tara is appealing for help to pay for his treatment as the costs have ‘spiralled out of control’ to more than £5,000 already – and his next surgery alone, to remove cancerous glands, will cost £2,000. Treatment She said: “My very supportive vet and I are are both in agreement not to hand Willow more than he can deal with. His daily walks on the beach and the delight he takes in snuffling his way among the sand dunes are what’s important to me. “He must continue to enjoy his life to the maximum and I won’t put him through more than is absolutely necessary. For that reason we are not going to put him through radiation therapy as each treatment requires a general anaesthetic and have just started him on chemotherapy. “As you can imagine, the costs are spiralling out of control. Apart from the two surgeries he’s already had, the two rounds of aspirates and the chemotherapy which he’s to have at three weekly intervals, as well as the medications, this new surgery alone will cost £2,000.” If you can help Tara, email her at tpks1@yahoo.comand - she will call you directly.

Valentine’s Day wedding for love-struck pensioners From page 1 “Once I had lost five stone I decided that I wanted to try and walk again. I had no feeling below my knees, and it took months, but I did it.” The next step was to get her driving licence back and for her 67th birthday she got a new motability car which she uses to get to Rufford Old Hall. And remarkably, Jill says that due to losing so much weight she no longer needs to take insulin and has been taken off the diabetic register. Jill’s type of MS is now in remission and she now enjoys walking unaided... with new found love Tony, who also has some amazing achievements to tell. Tony lost his wife four years ago. He served as a marine commando with the Royal Navy and was one of the advance party in The Falklands War.

Tony and Jill - getting married at Banks Methodist Church this Valentines Day.

After leaving the armed forces he became a leader of a cadets force and went into forensic accounting, assisting the courts with investigations into money laundering and fraud. Among his pastimes are walking and mountain-

eering, and his efforts are exceptional. For his 75th birthday, Tony says he climbed Mount Everest and this year he will take part in a sponsored non-stop 36-hour walk from Winchester to Eastbourne (104 miles). Jill tells of how they hit it off: “The first time we met, Tony bought a raffle ticket off me. Our first date was in Old Rufford Hall, in the cafe, and we were talking so long that they virtually kicked us out. “That was last summer. Everything clicked. We are very much in love, and delighted to spend the rest of our lives together.” Following their wedding the couple planned to host a lunch at Rufford Old Hall followed by a party for friends, family and residents. They plan to have their honeymoon in spring.

Hub event is just the business for borough’s budding entrepreneurs MORE than 50 budding Sefton entrepreneurs received expert advice on the next steps for their business dreams. They attended the Enterprise Hub Start-Up Business Conference held recently at Bootle Town Hall. The event, which was run in partnership with Sefton Council’s business support body Invest Sefton, featured three local business owners who shared tips on how they utilised support to move from an idea to a successful business. Some of the business ideas were a home-made chocolatier called Chocolatism and a coffee venture inspired by the idea of bringing a taste of African coffee to the UK. Councillor Marion Atkinson, Sefton’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “It was great to see the message getting out there that Sefton is open for business, and also to meet so many budding entrepreneurs in Sefton who are inspired to be business owners of the future. “There were so many exciting ideas bouncing around the event. Invest Sefton and Enterprise Hub delivered an invaluable workshop together and I felt positive to hear the responses of those attending, such as ‘I am grateful for all the professional advice and guidance I was given, it really has helped’. “I am excited to see how these new businesses will develop and the opportunities that they will create in Sefton.” Kris Swift, business development manager at Invest Sefton, said: “As well as supporting existing businesses in Sefton to grow, it is vital that we encourage the development of new businesses, as

they are the future of the borough. By working closely with Enterprise Hub we hope to provide a seamless journey of support for any pre-start business or existing business that contacts the Growth Hub.” So far Enterprise Hub has supported more than 120 new businesses to start in Sefton since the project began in November 2015, with around 600 local residents signing up to the programme and starting to receive support to evaluate their ideas and build enterprise skills. The event was inspired by the huge success of the Enterprise Hub Start-Up Week last September, opened by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram at the Bootle offices of Invest Sefton.

Balloons released in memory of Cassie

A minute's silence at the start of last Saturday's balloon release to celebrate Cassie Hayes life.

Police appeal for information after collision in Ainsdale AN APPEAL has gone out following a collision between two vehicles in Ainsdale. Merseyside Police officers were called at about 7.20pm on Monday, February 5 to a report of a collision involving a gold Volvo S70 and a blue Range Rover on Liverpool Road between Orchard Lane and Meadow Lane. The driver of the Volvo made off from the scene on foot in the direction of Sandbrook Road. A 28-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, drink driving and failing to stop after a collision. He was released under investigation. There were no reported injuries, but the road was closed for a number of hours following the incident due to extensive damage caused to the cars. Sergeant Phil Mitchell said: “We are keen to speak to any members of the public or drivers that may have witnessed this incident. Anyone with information on the collision is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

FRIENDS and family of Cassie Hayes who died following a horrific attack in Tui on Chapel Street, came together on the seafront at Southport last Saturday to release balloons in her memory. Cassie, 28, died just before 1.30pm on Saturday, January 13 and the balloon release was organised to mark a month since the awful event. The balloon release took place opposite the Guelder Rose pub on Marine Drive at about 1.30pm. Meanwhile, the landlady of the Wellington pub on Eastbank Street, Annie McTag-

Jamie Bridge, 21, from Walton, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday, June 12 when he pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, but did admit to the lesser charge of wounding with intent. However, a trial will take place in June after it was decided to proceed with the charge of attempted murder. The Champion reported at the time how armed police were called to Eastbank Street at around 12.30pm on December 21 last year follow-

Are you thinking of a hip or knee replacement? Police at the scene following the shooting

ing reports that a shotgun had been fired in front of shoppers on a busy day in the town, with many carrying out their Christmas shopping. The shooting left victim Christopher Jopson with head injuries and he needed hospital treatment. Also

injured was bus driver Lee Armstrong following the attack. Bridge admitted to the wounding of Mr Armstrong on the same date. He also admitted possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence to Mr Jopson.

Drunk pair shouted racist abuse at railway station guard TWO men from Walton have been prosecuted for hurling racist abuse to a Merseyrail staff member at Southport railway station. The victim said he felt like they had such a “deep hatred” that it led to him taking time off work - but was helped by remembering the decency shown by other station users at the time of the incident. Sefton Magistrates Court heard how Brian Bradshaw, 37 and Steven Woods, 45 were stopped at the ticket barriers at Southport’s railway station on September 17, after visiting the Air Show. Angela Conlan, prosecuting, said a Merseyrail employee believed the men to be unfit to travel through drink after Bradshaw was seen to stumble. An argument broke out and another employee attempted to intervene. Mrs Conlan said Bradshaw became very abusive to the second employee calling him

...but victim tells court that the decency shown to him by strangers helped him through ordeal a ‘black monkey’ and shouting ‘This is England, this is my country.’ The whole incident lasted about 15 minutes, she said, and when being told that police had been called, Woods said: “Come on lets leave this n*****, and get a taxi.” The court heard that members of the public told the men that they were “out of order ” and one man tried to have a fight with them over it. Mrs Conlan told of how the rail guard was deeply affected by the incident. “He was so fixated on the colour of my skin and kept repeating comments,” he told police, “It was not like it was a joke. It was

like a person of deep hatred.” Telling of how he took time off work, she said that what helped him to return to his job was remembering the decency shown by strangers at the time of the incident. “It made me realise that not everyone is like them and that gave me some confidence,” he said. The court heard that Bradshaw, a taxi driver, had a previous conviction for possession of a controlled drug in 2002 and that Woods had no previous convictions. Bradshaw was sentenced to eight weeks custody, suspended for 12 months, fined £180, and £115 costs, and attend 10 days of a rehabilitative activity. Woods was also sentenced to eight weeks custody, suspended for 12 months, but was ordered to undertake 100 hours of unpaid work, and pay £200 in costs. Both men were ordered to pay £50 in compensation to the rail guard.

Shirley Williams, development director at PHX Training

Shirley in appeal to ‘forgotten job-seekers A TRAINING company is appealing for the ‘forgotten army’ of job-seekers to apply for opportunities for learning under government funding. Shirley Williams, development director at PHX Training on Lord Street is reaching out to those aged over 19, who have not previously attained a GCSE Grade C, or higher, who would be fully funded if they study for a qualification in English or maths up to and including level 2. Restrictions facing the unemployed may include living with a partner that works full time, access to available information and opportunities locally. Supported by the government, PHX is keen to support the ‘forgotten workforce’ by offering level 2 courses to people who are out of work, not just those claiming benefits. Shirley said: “People may not be fully aware that they have the right to this level of tuition. If anyone is interested in taking up these types of qualifications, please get in touch for more information, they are key to leading people into future training and employment.” PHX Training offers courses in English and maths leading up to a level 2 qualification, the equivalent to a grade C at GCSE.

Cancer survivor welcomes £1.5m boost for ground-breaking medical research Peter Breaden has welcomed new research into pancreatic cancer

Report by Danielle Thompson A CANCER survivor has welcomed £1.5million of funding to be invested into ground-breaking new research in Merseyside. Father of three Peter Breaden, a retired lab manager from Churchtown, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April 2010 and successfully treated on a Cancer Research UK clinical trial. The 67-year-old has welcomed the move by national cancer charity Cancer Research UK to award the huge grant to scientists researching pancreatic cancer – one of the deadliest cancers. The University of Liverpool-led study will analyse tissue and blood samples from pancreatic cancer patients being treated at Royal Liverpool Hospital and Aintree University Hospital to investigate how pancreatic cancer spreads to other parts of the body. The six-year research programme ultimately aims to help develop new strategies and drugs to improve treatments for pancreatic cancer patients. Peter, a grandfather of nine, said: “As a pancreatic cancer survivor it’s great to see Cancer Research UK investing more into research right here in Merseyside looking at pancreatic cancer. Further research is really important to help boost understanding of pancreatic cancer and how it spreads and to pave the way for more treatments.” Survival rates for pancreatic cancer remain very low with around 8,700 people dying from pancreatic cancer each year in the UK, including around 930 people in the North West. Immunotherapy - a type of biological therapy that is used to stimulate the immune system to help the body fight cancer - has recently shown to be beneficial for several different types of cancer but unfortunately it has so far not shown much promise for pancreatic cancer patients. This study will look at why that might be the case and aims to find new “druggable” targets to tackle this hard-to-treat cancer. Scientists will explore the cancer tumour’s microenvironment – the cells in and around the tumour – which interact together to promote and help the cancer cells to spread. Dr Michael Schmid, from the University of Liverpool who is leading the international study, said: “Pancreatic cancer develops in the pancreas but cancer cells can spread aggressively to distant sites in the body - a process called metastasis - meaning patients can get metastatic – or secondary - tumours. “Over the last few years it has become clear that normal cells sur-

rounding the cancer cells – called stromal cells - are as important as the cancer cells themselves. The tumour seems to be hijacking these cells and uses them to rapidly grow. We need to find out how this happens and how we can prevent this.” “What’s different about this study is that we will be looking at what these stromal cells are doing once the tumour has spread to another part of the body – in this case the liver. This could allow us to find new drugs to prevent metastasis of pancreatic cancer.” The Liverpool team will also work with researchers at the University of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cambridge, CR-UK MedImmune Alliance Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York.

OPEN DAY

Gizmo’s feline lonely! A CAT whose owner has sadly passed away seven years after it was re-homed from an animal shelter, is once again looking for a new forever home. Gizmo, a 15 year old black moggie, was handed in to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary on Sandy Lane in Holmeswood in 2008, before finally being adopted by a new owner, Ash, in 2011. But despite the pair being so well matched that Gizmo used to pull his fur out when separated from his owner, he has made a heart-breaking return to the shelter after Ash passed away last month. Sally McDerby from the animal sanctuary said: “Every once in a while throughout our lifetime we come across animals who break the mould. “Black cats can be very difficult to re-home. However, seven years ago Ash gave Gizmo a chance of happiness and after some initial teething problems, Gizmo settled quickly and both cat and owner became very attached to each other - so much so that when Ash went on holiday Gizmo was so upset that he pulled the fur out of his back due to excessive self-grooming due to stress. “Ash soon came to realise that Gizmo was going to rule his life and holidays were no longer an option! They were truly devoted to one another. “At the beginning of January, we received a phone call out of the blue to inform us that Ash had very sadly passed away. This left Gizmo alone and without the one he loved. He was brought back to

Care home to close due to ‘financial unsustainability’ Report by Danielle Thompson A CARE home in Banks is to close in April forcing its residents, many with disabilities and in need of nursing care, to find alternative accommodation. The privately owned Rose Lodge Care Home on Church Road will shut within weeks after receiving a poor rating on its last CQC report in January. A spokesperson for the home told the Champion that the closure was due to the ‘financial unsustainability’ of running the home. The report, published on January 18, found that overall, the facility, which can care for a maximum of 36 residents, was found to ‘Require Improvement’ - with the rating given in three of its five key areas, with the other two graded as ‘Good.’ The home is run by Parkcare Homes Limited and offers care for residents requiring nursing or personal care, diagnostic and screening procedures, physical disabilities, illnesses or injuries. A spokesperson for the home said: “After careful consideration, the difficult decision to close Rose Lodge was made due to the financial unsustainability of the service. Current market conditions create difficulties for many care homes nationally, and a small home such as Rose Lodge is particularly sus-

ceptible to the impact of high staffing and maintenance costs. “The limited income from placement fees at a home with only 36 beds has meant we are unable to cover the costs required to sustain the service. This decision has not been taken lightly and we are working closely with our residents to help them find new care placements.” A Champion reader who preferred to remain anonymous alerted us to the closure. The reader told the Champion: “Rose Lodge Care Home in Banks has suddenly announced its closure, and residents are to vacate by the end of April this year. “This will place yet more strain on an overloaded care system, and also great worry and strain for residents and families. “I wonder why it has not been offered to another company? Or better, given to a cooperative if the residents, carers and village form one?” The care home’s web site gives no indication Rose Lodge is to close in a matter of weeks, it describes the home as being ‘in the heart of the community and provides residents with a beautiful newly designed rose garden where the residents can enjoy a safe and peaceful environment.” Not for much longer, it seems.

‘This decision has not been taken lightly and we are working closely with our residents to help them find new care placements...’

Councillor calls for cross-party support to help fix town’s ‘social care crisis’ A SOUTHPORT Councillor is calling for politicians to work together in a bid to help fix the town’s ‘social care crisis.’ Birkdale Ward Councillor Iain Brodie-Brown, the former Mayor of Sefton for 2016/17, believes that increasing Council Tax is not the way to fund improvements to social care - and that ring-fenced National Insurance payments might be the answer. He said: “A rise of 5% or 6% in council tax is Sefton is not the right way to fund social care. “Hundreds of elderly people and some with disabilities are not getting the care they need. There are people waiting to be discharged from hospital who cannot leave. “The council has not got the funding to provide the care required for residents to return to their own homes. Nationally the figure is reckoned to be over 1million people, locally that translates in to hundreds. This is a crisis. “The government’s approach of hiking up the council tax is not the answer. That tax is grossly unfair as it takes disproportionately from the less well-off. A radical overhaul is needed. “If the town’s residents are going to get the services they

Birkdale Ward Councillor Iain Brodie-Brown

need and deserve then we must build a cross-party national agreement that will last for a generation. And that agreement will need to be properly funded. “I’ve seen many heart-breaking cases where some of our most vulnerable residents are getting a wretchedly poor deal. Politicians have got to stop scoring points and work together to sort out this mess. At its heart is a funding shortfall. “A new independent report drawn up by some of the bestinformed people including former chief executives of NHS England, the Royal College of Nursing, and the Patients Association has made some important proposals, including ring fencing

National Insurance payments. I am concerned by the government’s decision to drop their previous commitment to cap the costs of social care, which was developed following a report by Sir Andrew Dilnot.” Meanwhile, fellow Lib Dem John Pugh is backing a proposal to replace National Insurance with a permanent dedicated tax for the NHS. The proposal comes from a panel of 10 experts including Sir Peter Carter, former chief executive of the Royal College of Nurses, Sir David Nicholson former chief executive of the NHS and Clare Gerada, former Chair of the Royal College of GPs. Former MP Pugh said: “These are eminent people who I have met on many occasions and who have lived with the problem of NHS underfunding for decades. “They draw attention to the basic fact that we still spend less than other advanced nations on health but have of the oldest populations on the planet. “The NHS need a permanent reliable funding stream to avoid periodic crises and panic reactions. We need a cross party agreement that can last a generation not simply get us through the next year or so.”

CAN YOU WALK FOR AUTISM? Think you can walk 10,000 steps a day for eight days? Would you like to raise money for autism? Then take part in this easy fundraising campaign on World Autism Awareness Week 26 March – 2 April! Find out more and register at www.walkforautism. org.uk to receive a how-to pack and a free T shirt and pedometer! Autism Initiatives Group, which began almost 50 years ago by a mother in Maghull and now has many services throughout the UK, is organising Walk for Autism to raise money for people with autism and their families. It’s thought that over 1 in 100 people have some form of autism, which may result in difficulties or differences in communication, social interaction, thinking and in sensitivity of the senses. But helping people with autism can make a difference. Mark, a young man from Southport, said, “I was bullied because I was different and I became distraught. But [thanks to Autism Initiatives] my life changed. I have more confidence, and am happier.” Those who want to step up to the challenge can

SOLICITORS Dickinson Parker Hill have helped raise the fantastic sum of £12,111.74 through its latest Charity Will Month. During November, the legal firm, situated on Derby Street, Ormskirk, invited clients, many from the Southport area, to have simple wills and codicils prepared for them but rather than asking for the usual fee for their services, the solicitors asked for donations to be made to the Charity Will Month scheme. The money will be used to help The Civic in Ormskirk.

This is the eighth year that the scheme has been running and as in previous years, it proved very popular, with many new clients taking the opportunity to put wills in place and at the same time help a good cause. The total now raised since 2009 by the solicitors' will writing initiative is over £92,000. Partner Michael Prendergast said: “Many of our clients use The Civic and it's nice to see how the efforts of all our staff during the Charity Will Month will benefit the local area.” Liz Wainwright from The Civic said: “We were absolutely

delighted to have been chosen by DPH as their charity this year. We are extremely grateful to them and their clients for supporting us through Charity Will Month. The money raised will be used towards the refurbishment of our main hall.” Mr Prendergast added: “Charity Will Month has proved very popular with this year being the most we have ever raised in one month. We would like to thank all our clients for their support and I would also like to thank all our staff for all their hard work and professionalism in supporting the scheme.”

Report by Tom Martin FIRE engines based in Southport are now carrying pet-friendly oxygen masks thanks to generous donations from animal lovers. The masks, provided by a charity called Smokey Paws, are part of a kit specially tailored for small household pets and larger animals. Following an initial trial of six masks rolled out across Merseyside, including Formby Community Fire Stations last September, Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service has now swelled its numbers of Smokey Paws masks. The new kits are now being carried on fire engines based at Community Fire Stations at Southport, Speke, Kirkdale and Old Swan, Bootle & Netherton, Eccleston, Upton and Wallasey. It means that every borough in Merseyside has a pet-friendly oxygen mask on at least one appliance. Costing £90 each, the kits consist of three petsized oxygen masks that can be used for a variety of animals. They also include oxygen tubes, muzzles and a slip lead in case an animal becomes agitated while being rescued. They range in size to fit small pets such as hamsters, snakes, dogs and cats and larger animals such as sheep and horses, and are designed to fit snugly around the snout of animals to ensure a better flow of oxygen. Group Manager Rob Pritchard, who has worked closely with Smokey Paws to help procure the masks for MFRS fire engines, said: “It’s fantastic to now have pet oxygen masks on appliances at five fire stations in Liverpool. “We are incredibly grateful to the people and

They will vastly improve our chances of reviving many more animals in Liverpool who have suffered smoke inhalation at fires. “Once animals have been rescued they often, much like humans, require some form of oxygen therapy to assist in their immediate care and recovery. These masks are specifically designed to fit the faces of different animals and mean we can tailor our response to the individual pet involved in the incident. “Pets are an enormous part of any family, so we are thrilled that we have more of this life-saving equipment on fire engines in the city. It would be wonderful if we could eventually have a kit on an appliance at every station in Merseyside.”

Councillor is ‘spectacularly ill-informed’ on consultancy fees, claims leader THE leader of Sefton Council has accused a councillor of being ‘spectacularly ill informed’ for flagging up concerns that taxpayers’ money is being wasted on consultancy fees to determine pay increases for high ranking local authority staff. Birkdale Ward member Lib Dem Cllr Simon Shaw told the Champion last week that the council’s 50 highest paid officers, who are currently on salaries ranging between £46,700 and £139,900 annually, could be in line for a wage hike after councillors agreed to a controversial provision in the council’s new draft Pay Policy at a meeting of the Council’s Pay and Grading Committee last month. He claimed that the controversial clause would give a role on deciding pay rises for council officers to the private sector Hay Group, a global management consulting firm. However, a Sefton Council spokesperson responded that their current pay arrangements have been in place since 2007 - and that the new Pay Policy does not propose any changes to this. Now Council Leader and Labour councillor Ian Maher has weighed into the deabate. Following cllr Shaw ’s comments, he claimed: “Councillor Shaw has a tendency towards the dramatic in his media work and it seems often likes to present a particular slant that is completely at odds with the reality of the situation.

Cllr Ian Maher

“In this instance, he’s rather outdone himself and is quite spectacularly ill-informed. The Hay Group have given advice on this matter since the Lib-Dems brought them in on it over a decade ago. “We will be reviewing their role as we almost invariably stick to the National Joint Council recommendations. “There is no ‘bumper rise’ for senior officers or any council staff and given the wage cap imposed by the Liberal Democrats and the Tories on the public sector for all these years, it’s insulting for them to make that claim. “It is the stuff of fantasy and it badly serves the people of Southport and of Sefton as well as our staff."

THE manager of a Sefton home care provider has started a campaign to address the shortage of care workers. Jan Anderson, who manages the Southport, Formby and Crosby areas for home care provider, Home Instead Senior Care, has launched ‘You Can Care’ to raise awareness, banish pre-conceived ideas about what caring is about and explain how rewarding working in care can be. The country's ageing population has created a huge requirement for care services and Jan believes that the national picture is reflected in the local area. Home Instead Senior Care, which specialises in care for older people in their own homes, is hoping to fill

Benefit cheat pensioner owned property abroad A 73-year-old old Southport man appeared in court for claiming Pension Credit while having an occupational pension and having a property abroad. Gerald Gottig, of Argyle Road, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February 7 where he pleaded guilty to two charges of dishonestly making a false statement to obtain a benefit, in relation to Pension Credit and Council Tax Benefit, and one charge of dishonestly failing to notify a change in circumstances which would affect his entitlement to Pension Credit, in relation to receiving undeclared cash credits. Telling the magistrates that the offences were fraudulent from

the outset, prosecutor Angela Conlan said Gottig had claimed Pension Credit between September 2009 and January 2015. She said: “He failed to declare that he was in receipt of a private pension from Legal and General when he applied for the Pension Credit. He also owned a property abroad. The overpayment was £6,985.49.” Mrs Conlan added: “In addition, he claimed Council Tax Benefit from Sefton Council which he was not entitled to between July 2009 and May 2011. The overpayment in Council Tax Benefit was £2,856.28.” Saying that he had lost his business which had put him in financial difficulty, Gottig told the magistrates: “I feel ashamed.

Previously I was of good report and I have never been in trouble, except for minor motoring offences. I apologise for wasting your time and I apologise for what I have done. As I say, I am deeply ashamed.” Mrs Conlan told the court that £7,000 of the overpayment had already been repaid and Mr Gottig said he will repay the rest this year. “I hope that goes some way to showing me in a better light,” he said. The magistrates said they had regard for his previous good character and believed he was genuinely remorseful. They fined him a total of £1,050 and ordered him to pay £120 in costs and victim surcharge.

Rail bosses urge RMT to get round the table in ongoing guards dispute Report by Henry James MERSEYRAIL has told the public in the Liverpool City Region that the initiative to get round the table to find a settlement to the current industrial relations dispute lies firmly with the RMT. Merseyrail bosses have said that despite claims from the RMT that Merseyrail has set a precondition to Metro Mayor Steve Rotherham's recommendation of independent conciliation, this is not true. They add that, “more strikes are not what the public want to see. They want a settlement.” The RMT Union is against plans to introduce trains where the doors are closed by the driver. This would usually be the role of the guard. Andy Heath, Merseyrail’s managing director said: “I would appeal to John Tilley, RMT regional organiser, to get round the table with my team in Merseyrail to work out a solution to the current impasse. “The proposed changes to the method of operation in the new trains is not about increasing profits for shareholders, zero hour contracts or compulsory redundancies. The opposite is the fact. It is a fact that there will be no increase in profit for the shareholders associated with these new trains. “It is a fact that guards will have their current terms and conditions protected should they accept an alternative job. It is a fact that not one single guard will be made compulsory redundant as a result of these changes. “Finally, it is a fact that every guard will be offered

The door is open for talks on the new trains, shown above in a CGI image, which are planned to be introduced without guards, say Merseyrail.

a guaranteed job elsewhere in the business.” The RMT Union has said the starting point for talks is the removal of all guards and RMT general secretary Mick Cash has commented: “Merseyrail’s mask has slipped, and the Metro Mayor and the other politicians who have been echoing their nonsense need to decide whether they support the most profitable private train operator in the country or the passengers and rail staff who want to put safety first.”

LETTERS to the Editor Reunited with ring! I read the letter in the Champion about a gold ring which had been found in a Morrisons store. My 90 year old Mum had lost a ring before Christmas and was really upset about it as it had belonged to her sister and been in the family a long time. She had contacted every shop she thought she had been in - but no luck. My daughter-in -law put it on Facebook, but again no luck. After reading the letter I contacted the Champion who forwarded my number to the gentleman concerned. I described the ring and unbelievably it was my Mum’s ring. My Mum can’t believe it either - and was so surprised when I gave it back to her. I would like through your paper to thank Harry Jones for his kindness and all the trouble he went to - to reunite ring and owner, and the Champion for your help . Pauline Duncan (by email)

Sir Ron’s miscalculation SO the former councillor Ron Watson complains that the decision to axe the Southport Area Committee is an “assault on democracy ”. As one of the councillors that back in 1973, without consultation with the people of Southport, he voted to take our town into Sefton rather than where we should have gone. ie West Lancashire. That decision was based on one factor only; they calculated at the time that the Conservatives would have control of all aspects of Sefton. Whilst as part of Lancashire everything but Social Services and Education would be run by Southport councillors. Forty four years on the 21 councillors who represent Southport on Sefton council have abso-

lutely no control of anything that happens in Southport. There have been numerous issues since Labour took control of Sefton where our councillors have been overruled by unelectable (in Southport) Bootle councillors. Most of the people that were on Southport Borough Council back in 1973 have passed away; but I am sure they would be spinning in their graves if they knew the damage and the enormous cost to our town that decision has caused. May I remind former councillor Watson that in the early 1990’s when Southport last tried to get out of the mess that is Sefton; he was mentioned in the Boundary Commission report as a prominent member of the move to stay

in Sefton. I attended the meeting at the Prince of Wales hotel when the chairman of the Boundary Commission denied our attempt to leave Sefton but warned Sefton council that their south Sefton bias was not acceptable. Bearing in mind that ex councillor Watson was one of those who, in 1973, took the undemocratic decision to take us into Sefton and subsequently worked to stop us getting out, maybe he should consider giving back his undeserved knighthood. With the abolition of the Southport Area Committee we need to move for another review, hopefully in my lifetime. Brian Birch Southport, Lancashire.

PICTURE of the week

‘Overpaid intruders’ perhaps, but consultants help build capability not dependency With regard to the letter in the Champion ‘Consultants are overpaid intruders’ I am able to see the argument from both sides. After working as a Civil Servant for over 40 years, I am now an independent change management consultant. As a Civil Servant, I worked alongside a number of consultants. It is true some did ask to ‘borrow my watch, and then tell me the time’, but others provided expert guidance support and advice. Having worked as an internal management consultant for Whitehall departments, I decided to leave the Civil Service last year and move to Birkdale. I recognised that over the years I had built up a wealth of expertise and skills that I wanted to share with others. As a consultant it is my purpose to partner individuals to build capability not dependency. So yes, I recognise that some consultants could be viewed as ‘overpaid intruders’, yet the question surely is this , do they build capability or do they build dependency. For me it must be the former. Peter Lawrence (by email)

Can anyone explain just what is the point of leaf blowers? It’s a clear, crisp winter morning in Crossens. The starlings are fluttering overhead, the daffodils are beginning to shoot from their wintry haven... and the council workman goes back and forth along the pavement with his leaf blower. All of the above set a charming scene as we slide into February - except that is for the leaf blower. Can anyone explain this pointless activity to me? Chris Blomeley Southport

It’s time cruise ships were held to account... Thanks to high profile campaigns, most of us are now aware of the damage to marine life caused by plastic. Also, the Champion and other media have highlighted the dumping of solidified palm oil on our local beaches resulting in the deaths of some animals. Another heavy polluter of our oceans are the cruise ship companies which have grown exponentially in recent years. Lax laws make it easy for these ‘cities on the sea’ to dump sewage, oil, and all kinds of rubbish into international waters, and pollute the pristine ocean near cruise destination hot spots. It’s time these companies were held to account. SE Southport

Fracking is the ‘least worst option’ I have read in the Champion the usual scare stories on fracking. Such exaggerations have been comprehensively disproved by preliminary tests and official investigations carried out by UK experts. Each day I walk along the beach north of Liverpool where there are more than 100 wind turbines installed off shore. I notice that these operate on the 80/20 principal - ie for 80% of the time only a very few are rotating and 20% of the time none are working at all. I understand that the cost of power from wind turbines is projected to be very favourable in comparison with other resources, but only if there is much more utilisation than at present - currently either the wind is too weak to turn

the blades or too strong and the methods of storing and harnessing the potential energy from higher rotational speeds have been under consideration for many years without fruition. The regional mayor has recently suggested that a barrage should be built in Liverpool Bay at the mouth of the Mersey to harness tidal wave power. St Malo in France built a barrage many years ago and in 1964 when I started at university such a model was built in the Fluid Mechanics department. This was never followed up however because of cost considerations and the likely disruption to freight and passenger traffic to the Port of Liverpool during the build process. Nuclear power still remains a

conundrum since there is concern about the cost of construction using Chinese know-how and the current climate of industrial unrest. The supply of fuel to Drax using 45 trainloads of biomass pellets sourced from the USA, Australia, Poland, Russia and South Africa each day clearly is not sustainable (and certainly not ‘green). North Sea oil may possibly be rejuvenated in the future. However fracking, which is now well proven and safe, provides the least worst option - assuming the test results to be satisfactory from the current exploratory work in Sefton and elsewhere in the UK to determine suitability. Colin Booth (by email)

I recently used a rail replacement bus service from Preston to Poulton-le-Fylde which was spot on time in both directions, travelling on a top-ofthe-range double decker. There was ‘welcome aboard’ and destination announcements, video screens, cctv, tables, phone chargers and wifi, but no heating on the forty five minute return trip on a freezing January evening. If you plan to use this service don’t forget a fleece, woolly hat, gloves, scarf and flask to make the journey more pleasant. I use Northern Rail trains and local bus services on a regular basis and very often you get a free sauna in summer when the heating is on full blast and no heating in winter when it is required. Jeff Carter, Southport,

Who wants to live in a nuclear wasteland? In Mr Kinfton's letter (Champion 31-1-18) he failed to point out that billions of gallons of waste water will be produced by the process of fracking. This could (according to some experts) contain more than 600 chemicals, including biocides, corrosion inhibitors , friction reducers and surfactants, and many could be carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting and neurotoxic (reference Google Fracking and Health). Our water supply will be at risk!

Then there is the radioactive gas radon, and particulate matter released into the atmosphere from the ‘flaring process’, as a result of burning excess methane. This is not ‘a supply of reasonably clean fuel’. I do agree with Mr Kinfton on one point and I quote “helping to protect the local infrastructure by limiting the building of new housing estates”that is because nobody will want to live in the equivalent of a nuclear waste land !

LETTERS to the Editor

Cassie commemoration welcomed - but not with balloons on the sea front I’d like to comment regarding two articles in Wednesday’s Champion both on page 9 - in fact, side by side. Firstly, an article highlighting the state of our beach, tonnes of plastic waste strewn along the tideline, an environmental disaster to sea and wildlife, asking for volunteers to help clear it up at a weekend event. This is to be applauded especially those who help in this vital and good cause. But then an article adjacent to this appears announcing a balloon release to be held on the sea front in memory of Cassie Hayes, the young

girl killed in the Southport travel agents. Please don’t get me wrong, something to commemorate the sad and tragic circumstances at the loss of Cassie should be welcomed and I’m all for it, but is a balloon release a responsible action? These balloons will invariably end up on the beach and in the sea, animals mistake them for food and the result is fatal. Please can people think of the consequences of their actions Name, address supplied (by email)

Southport could have been the core town in a West Lancashire Unitary Authority...

‘I reserve the right to speak up against Brexit’ Letter writer Mr Durrance’s assertion that remainers are traitors to our country is, quite frankly, despicable. He has the arrogance to suggest that we should learn to respect the wishes of the British people. Yes, the Leave campaign won by a slender margin, but if you are talking of the British people then 17,410,742 represented 26% of the population. What he clearly fails

to understand is that democracy did not end on June 23, 2016. If the Conservatives are elected to government does it follow that all other party supporters should therefore support Conservatives? Of course not. I reserve the right to speak up against Brexit at every opportunity because I believe it to be damaging to this country. Remainer Phil (by email)

Madness to allow housing development Further to the Champion’s article on proposed housing on land adjacent to Brackenway, Formby (January 24 ), I feel I have to write again with my concerns. I refrained from writing straight after the issue of the article as I wished to see what reaction to it there would be. Unless the issue of the trees in the village has taken centre stage there appears to be no reaction at all. Perhaps it’s me that is out of step and yet another large scale development is to be placed before Sefton Council for rubber stamping with their approval as there is no opposition. Having read the Champion’s article and

taking note of the quotes, I am staggered at the audacity of the developer. They have embellished what was reported last August, that in effect all these so called ecological improvements can only be achieved by building 286 houses (six more than was reported in August). There is no clear indication in this most recent article regarding ingress and egress to the estate from the Formby Bypass. Previously it appeared to be a full junction. They again ignore Deansgate Lane North as a possible route in and out and appear to continue believing that Paradise Lane is the solution. Paradise Lane is already heavily

Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA tel 01704 392 400 email editor@champnews.com

trafficked now and at school times is even worse. It’s frankly madness. I note that this scheme together with another 24 homes in Altcar Lane comes before the council this month. They appear to be approving such schemes willy-nilly as you only have drive round Formby at certain times to see the effects of frankly uncontrolled planning. No doubt Sefton Council will have looked at all the implications and say we think every thing will be fine. Well I for one do not think so. P.F. Anderson, Formby

It is possible that John Cotterall, a review of whose book, ‘The Southport That Was’, appeared in the Champion last week, may not fully appreciate the true reason why ‘Southport was taken out of Lancashire and incorporated into a misbegotten area called Merseyside’. It is totally incorrect to suggest that Southport, except for its police force, was ever within the administrative area of Lancashire County Council, so it is impossible for us to have left something we were not, at that time, part of. In reality, Southport was then, as it still is now, a town within the ancient county of Lancashire, and, for administrative purposes only, a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton within the make-believe County of Merseyside created in 1974 by an Act of Parliament which did not abolish the ancient counties. What should be said is that Southport ceased to be fully selfadministered by the political party with the majority of seats within the town and became administered by the political party which has a majority of seats within Sefton which has lost many powers to external bodies such

as the Liverpool City Region Super Cabinet and the Liverpool City Region Local Economic Partnership. The original recommendation by the Boundary Commission for Southport in its review of all local government areas in 1974 was that Southport become a district within the revised Lancashire County Council area. But, as I now so vividly recall, some or all of the then predominant Conservative Councillors representing Southport decided that this town would be better off being part of a large Metropolitan Borough rather than an inconsequential District Council. The council applied for the change and it was granted, putting us in the same ‘pond’ as towns such as Bootle and Crosby, much to the dismay of of a very large number of residents in all the towns, including me. Without that change Southport could undoubtedly have been by now the core town in a ‘West Lancashire Unitary Authority’, much the same as Blackpool and Blackburn now are, with the modern equivalent of its previous prestigious status as a County Borough.

RULE Britannia, Britannia rules the waves... A good old fashioned patriotic song, a favourite of the Last Night of the Proms - but unhappily not really true in the present day. Yet until as recently as 1997 we did retain one symbol of national maritime pride, one that even the mighty USA could not boast - the Royal Yacht ‘Britannia’. She was almost inevitably decommissioned by the then Labour Government because, of course, she cost too much to maintain, she was ‘old fashioned’, ‘irrelevant’ in the modern world. Indeed not wanted on our voyage into a marvellous technological future. I can remember the tears in Her Majesty’s eyes at the decommissioning ceremony - and there were certainly some non-dry eyes amongst her crew as well. At the time there was talk of building a new, smaller (cheaper) Britannia, but this idea quietly sank without trace. So she is condemned to a permanent home as a floating museum in Edinburgh where oddly she earns quite a bit of money from visitors interested in this antiquated piece of history. Now though, MP Craig Mackinlay, and several of his Parliamentary colleagues have come up with a plan to build a new Britannia. Mr Mackinlay is savvy enough to realise that there is little or no chance of persuading the government to cough up the estimated £120 million needed to build the vessel, and he has come up with a crafty plan to get round this. Basically he suggests that we could set up a new National Lottery, specifically to raise the cash, an idea I would wholly endorse. Indeed, I would regularly contribute towards this, since so far as I am concerned this is a good cause that I fully support rather than some of the potty causes that win the support of our present lottery. Mr Mackinlay says a British firm would provide the engines for the vessel free of charge, and apparently several naval designers have offered their services ditto. Other British companies have also volunteered various services and have climbed aboard. If built, and at present I’m afraid it is a rather big ‘if ’, the new Britannia would, I reckon, fit in very well indeed with our Brexit plans for trade deals with the rest of the world. A floating platform to show other countries that we have not only national pride, but that we can still build ships. She would also be a splendid place in which to discuss trade deals - as of course was her predecessor. And frankly, particularly in this modern age, which do you think would impress the most, an American President climbing out of Air force One (which when you come down to it is only a tarted up, now old fashioned, airliner) or our Prime Minister walking down the brow from a state of the art, British built, Queen of the Oceans? Naturally, the usual suspects have already come out to pour cold water in the very real hope of sinking this project before it is even really launched. I heard an MP on TV who said she doubted that anyone would want to put cash into a lottery to build a new Royal Yacht, rather than to build a new hospital. In any case, when you shell out for the National Lottery, does all the money made go to build hospitals? Oh, then we’d have to pay to maintain her. Well, yes. But high by an individual’s standards as this may be, a drop in the ocean I would think in terms of our national budget. Also her maintenance would provide employment for skilled crafts people so this money really could hardly be called wasted. Could it?

Tip-off leads to court for drink-driver

A SOUTHPORT woman was caught drink-driving after a member of the public informed the police. Jennifer Barton, 27, of Talbot Street, appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on February 7 where she pleaded guilty to driving with 172 mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood, the legal limit being 80mg/100ml. Prosecutor Angela Conlan said: “It was October 17 and about 11.15pm when a member of the public contacted police stating that they believed that the driver of a particular vehicle was drunk. They saw the defendant driving

down Lord Street. They stopped her and when spoken to she said she’d had three pints earlier.” Representing herself, Barton said: “I know it was wrong and I should not have done it. It’s something I’ve never done before and will never do again.” The magistrates fined her £314, ordered that she pay costs and victim surcharge of £115, and banned her from driving for 17 months. She was offered the chance to reduce the ban by a quarter if she takes a drink drive awareness course.

Report by Tom Martin LIVERPOOL legend Jamie Carragher is launching a new project to help youngsters in local primary schools get fit and avoid obesity. Jamie Carragher Sports and Learning Academy, in Bootle, has teamed up with The Sovini Group for a unique fitness project which will be rolled out to ten primary schools to support more than 600 pupils. The idea involves using Fitbits, which are wireless activity trackers and records data such as the number of steps walked and heart rate, so children can wear them during PE lessons. The scheme is called Watch Us Get Fit and will allow youngsters to better keep track of their own fitness goals. They will use the Fitbits during a range of activities, with the goal to cover between 10-12 miles over a six week period. Funding from The Sovini Group has paid for 250 Fitbit watches and taster sessions for schools in the region. Carragher said: “It ties in with maths in terms of counting their

steps and geography in terms of how long it takes to go from one place to another. It’s great in terms of the kids’ education and it’s important physically as well.” Roy Williams, CEO of The Sovini Group, said: “We think it’s a fantastic initiative and we’re happy to support it. Anyone can get involved regardless of ability.” The programme also educates children about nutrition and offers a unique way to include other curriculum based lessons to motivate them. James Olsen, Academy Director at the Jamie Carragher Sports & Learning Academy added: "This new initiative has

Sean Williams, Head Coach at the Jamie Carragher Sports & Learning Academy added: “The kids are competing against themselves. When they hit their target, which is about 16 miles over a 12-week course, they get given a free trip to the Academy.”

Emily in call for more women to get involved in politics WOMEN in Sefton are being urged to get involved in politics - 100 years after millions of women gained the right to vote. Merseyside's Deputy Police Commissioner, Cllr Emily Spurrell, has used the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage to encourage others to seek a career as a politician. The 1918 Representation of the People Act marked the first time that any women in the UK were able to vote, meaning for the first time, the country ’s MPs were elected by women as well as men. Cllr Spurrell was speaking at the ‘Wonder Woman’ event hosted by Edge Hill University, held to celebrate the victory of those who campaigned for Votes for Women. It gave the Deputy Police Commissioner the opportunity to talk about her own experiences in politics and encourage other young women to pursue a career in public life. Cllr Spurrell said: “I was delighted to support the Wonder Woman event hosted by Edge Hill University celebrating the victories of those early pioneers who campaigned relentlessly and put their own freedom, well-being and safety on the line to fight for our right to vote today. “We have made huge strides forward over the last century, but there is still a long way to go. Sadly, being a woman in any field, but particular in politics, can still make you a target for abuse, vitriol and even threats. “Over the years I have often been described as bossy, but I have tried not to take that personally. Our society encourages men to be authoritative and to show leadership but in women it can all too often be branded as arrogance or self-importance. “I attended this event to encourage other young women not to be deterred or put off if they face similar attitudes.

Winter Sale

Deputy Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell

‘We have made huge strides forward over the last century, but there is still a long way to go...’ “Put your hand up at every opportunity. Get involved. And don’t worry if you are that lone voice in the room.” Emily also used the opportunity to talk about the progress and achievements of women in policing. She said: “2015 marked 100 years of women in policing. “Nearly 41% of Merseyside Police’s officers and staff are women and we have two excellent female Assistant Chief Constables. “I’m also proud to say that Merseyside is just one of three areas across England and Wales to have a female PCC and Deputy PCC.”

Sanctuary’s problem is black and white!

The animal sanctuary is struggling to re-home its black and white cats

STAFF at a West Lancashire animal charity are being faced with a ‘colour bar’ with a difference. But the problem for the team at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary in Holmeswood is nothing to do with discrimination - they are simply struggling to find homes for their black and black-and-white cats! While furry felines of various other colours are being snapped up by loving new owners, the black and black-and-white brigade are being left behind. Sally McDerby from the Sandy Lane sanctuary said: “We are once again in a position where we have predominantly black and black-and-white cats, having to watch while other colours of cats are

moving on to their own loving home while these beautiful cats are bypassed simply because of their colour. “It takes us around four times longer to re-home black and black-and-white cats than any other colour! “And as well as being a shame for the cats, it also means we have to continue to look after them so can’t take in any other cats in need of rescue because of a lack of space! “If you think you have space in your heart and your home for one of these lovely, sweet cats please contact the team by calling 01704 823293.”

Step up for fundraiser A NATIONAL charity is urging Sefton residents to take 10,000 steps a day for autism. Autism Initiatives Group is backing Walk for Autism 2018, which encourages people to take 10,000 steps a day for a total of eight days. The hope is that £20,000 will be raised to help people with autism and their families. It’s thought that over 1 in 100 people have some form of autism, which is a neurological condition and can mean a difference in the way a person thinks, perceives and therefore understands the world and others. This may result in difficulties or differences in communication, social interaction, thinking and in sensitivity of the senses. The eight days will be from March 26 - April 2, which is World Autism Awareness Week. To register go to www.walkforautism.org.uk.

Stem Cell Scousers appeal for more volunteers to help fundraising efforts Report by Tom Martin AN inspirational fundraiser who has spent years raising awareness of a blood cancer charity is appealing for more volunteers to help him to continue his vital work. Kevin Dunne, 70, founded the ‘Stem Cell Scousers fundraising group to raise awareness and funds for the national Anthony Nolan charity two years ago. The charity uses its register to match potential stem cell donors to blood cancer patients in desperate need of a stem cell transplant. It also carries out research and supports patients, for example through transplants.

Kevin Dunne

The Formby resident has been fundraising for the charity across Sefton for more than two years after his wife, Mary, was diagnosed with leukaemia in

Poets share their art of storytelling RESIDENTS at a care home in Banks were thrilled to be visited by authors to celebrate National Storytelling Week. The staff and residents at Sutton Grange Care Home on Greaves Hall Avenue were paid a visit by the People’s Poet of Liverpool, Tony O’Neill, who is the home’s Poet In Residence, regularly visiting members of their writing club. He kick-started the week with humorous observations of everyday life, and was followed by novelist, Awen Thornber who read from her latest book, Foxtrot In Freshby (blending Freshfield and Formby to create one area) and talked about her life as a writer and the literary influences of Freshfield and Formby.

October 2014 and had a stem cell transplant from an anonymous unrelated donor, the only one on the worldwide registers who was a match. His brother Tony, was diagnosed nine months later and received a second chance of life from Kevin, who incredibly was a 10/10 match. One year after Mary ’s transplant, in October 2015, Kevin donated his stem cells to Tony. Kevin set himself the task of raising £100,000 for the charity and works tirelessly in his local community, holding collections in local supermarkets and the town centre. He often holds a stall in a supermarket, raising money and awareness. Two years after starting his fundraising journey, he has raised more than £21,000 for Anthony Nolan, as well as £4,000 for other charities. Kevin said: “Stem Cell Scousers have now recruited two Formby councillors Denise Dutton and Gemma Peace to the team and have support from Liverpool MP Louise Ellman - but we can't stress enough how urgently we need more new volunteers.” To volunteer, email kevindunne2@googlemail.com

More trees please, for town’s streets! A SOUTHPORT councillor wants to work with fellow members of the authority and Sefton Council to branch out on a new project to plant more trees in the town. Cllr David Barton, who campaigns for the improvement and regeneration of the resort, revealed that he is hoping to secure up to £70,000 funding from a number of developers to help develop green spaces in the town as part of recent planning applications. He revealed that he hopes to be able to spend the funds, which would have to be agreed upon by his fellow Ward Councillors Tony Dawson and John Pugh, on semi-

mature trees, including pear, birch, maple, sycamore and Lobel elm – bred for resistance to Dutch elm disease. He would like the trees to be planted along Sussex Road, Westcliffe Road, Lancaster Road, Grosvenor Road, Hawkshead Street and Weld Road. Cllr Barton said: “The council has worked with a number of developers who have provided money for this project through S106 expenditure and I hope that tree planting can take place by March this year. “Having been informed that Lord Street has now had all available tree

Pensioners enjoy spa day out treat PENSIONERS enjoyed a relaxing day out to a spa as part of a care group hub’s range of monthly activities. Athena Health Care Group’s deputy manager Suzi Corbett and residents from the group’s Parklands Lodge home in Southport joined the team at the Royal Clifton’s Health Club and Spa for a treat day. Lesley Malone, events organiser for the group, said: “They had a very relaxing spa morning in their recently newly refurbished spa and afterwards all enjoyed a lovely lunch in their restaurant – and they all said that they felt like they were celebrities! “We would like to say a big thank you to the Royal Clifton who have linked up with Athena Health Care Group with planned hospitality events that Athena will be doing in the next coming months. “We are all maturing ladies and we all like to be pampered what ever our age is! Age is just a number, it’s how we choose to live our lives in a care home!”

planting locations occupied it would be a great pleasure to further increase the level of air quality across our coastal resort town for the betterment of as many as possible, especially in other frequently used commuter areas.” A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “Dukes Ward councillors have been given a provisional list of seven potential locations for tree planting, however these locations have yet to be agreed between Cllr Barton and his fellow ward colleagues. “Once agreed in principle, any such scheme would then need to be considered by our tree team for final costings and logistics.”

MD Manchester Airport Direct

Review by Ron Ellis My Fair Lady Southport Spotlights Little Theatre, Southport THIS was a tremendous show from start to finish. Audrey Hepburn would have been proud of Beth Milligan who made a brilliant Eliza Doolittle, both as a flower girl and a ‘duchess’, and not least with her exceptional singing voice. Les Gomersall was superb as her Dad, joining fellow Cockneys, James Delahunty and Tom McMullan, for a lively rendition of With a Little Bit of Luck and, later, partaking of some comical repartee with Higgins as he offered to ‘sell’ him his daughter. The part of Henry Higgins was played by Gary Simpson, who has a look of Noel Coward about him, which made him perfect for the role. Marie Orr gave a consummate performance as his mother. Steve Pritchard stepped into the role of Colonel Pickering at the last minute, after Tom Hornby had an accident in rehearsal, but although

he had to use a script, Steve didn’t just read the words, he acted them, which says everything about his professionalism. James Henderson gave a nice rendition of On the Street Where you Live as failed suitor, Freddie Eynsford-Hill, whose mother was played by Denise Masters. Sue Palmer was Higgins’ housekeeper, Mrs Pierce. The music was provided by a splendid eleven-piece orchestra under the expert direction of Adam Dutch while Jenny Birch choreographed a lively display of singing and dancing which, combined with an array of colourful costumes, made for an impressive spectacle. My Fair Lady, of course, is based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play Pygmalion which, with its subordination of women, has come to be regarded as an indictment of the British class system of the time. Nowadays, with the uprising of Feminism, it is more likely to be reviled for its misogyny, confirmed when Eliza obediently fetches Higgins’ slippers at the end. Personally, I just enjoyed it for the timeless songs, the humour, the dancing and the happy ambience it created throughout the theatre.

Rehearsals for A Letter of Resignation

SDC ’S Letter of Resignation at the Little Theatre 1963 was a pivotal year in British politics. The scandals of Christine Keeler and Profumo were rocking the government with Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, seeming like an outdated old fogey, an Edwardian grandee lost in a world of The Beatles and Carnaby Street. When Profumo hands in his letter of resignation, the fuse is lit for the revelation of a spying scandal unprecedented in modern times. Hugh Whitemore’s play, however, is concerned more with Macmillan’s private life, notably his wife Dorothy ’s affair with the bisexual Scottish peer, Lord Boothby. Directed by Robin Hirsch, this intelligent and often humorous drama explores the corrupt personal and political morality of the era. John Sharp takes on the role of Macmillan, made famous by Edward Fox, while Carole Chessell is Lady Dorothy. Other parts are played by Diane Mackley, Andrew Sloman and Mike Stowel. The play opens on Friday, February 23 until Saturday, March 3 at 7.30p.m. Tickets from the Box Office Tel. 01704 530521/530460

IT’S the sort of late landing an Irish budget airline would be proud of. There’s arriving fashionably late – and then there’s the Volkswagen Up GTI. Connoisseurs of pint-sized and spicedup hatchbacks might have already read that as of this week the smallest of Wolfsburg GTI-badged wonders has just gone on sale across the UK. You might have also read in the motoring mags about how it copes tremendously with tight turns, and seen James May making excitable squawking noises while driving it on The Grand Tour. But the fact remains that Volkswagen first started promising us a spruced-up version of the teeny-tiny up way back in 2013, at a time when I was actually using a bog-standard Up as a company car. I can only assume that Volkswagen was being considerate by teasing us with it in concept car form – albeit missing that elusive third letter and badged as just the GT then – so it could give press-on drivers like me the chance to save up for it. Which is a good thing, because even in the poverty spec guise I reckon the Up’s the best car VW currently makes (especially now that the Scirocco has been pensioned off). But all those years of teasing car nuts

with the idea of an Up with added oomph has given the rest of the motoring world time to catch up. For a few hundred pounds less, for instance, you can have the Renault Twingo GT, which follows roughly the same formula but sticks the engine behind the rear seats and spits all the power out through the rear wheels. So basically it’s a Porsche 911 that’s more practical and easier to park. There’s also the Smart ForFour Brabus, which uses the same engine as the Twingo in a much heavier package and slaps on a £20k price

tag for the privilege. Erm, and that’s about it. Sure, there’s a new Suzuki Swift Sport on the way too but it’s astonishing that there’s no Sport spinoff of Ford’s Ka+ and that Vauxhall’s VXR boffins haven’t got their hands on an Adam. There’s no GTI twist on Peugeot’s 108 or a VTS variant of its sister car, the Citroen C1. Even VW hasn’t extended the GTI fun factor to the Up’s extended cousins – why isn’t SEAT doing a Mii Cupra, or Skoda Citigo vRS? Hot hatches inject a sparkle of excitement into the all-too-often anodyne world of front-wheel-drive supermarket companions, and the smaller and lighter they start off the more fun and immediate they end up being in GTI form. Come on carmakers, let’s have some more! Until then the only way is Up, even if it is five years late. Or to a Twingo GT, if you’re being awkward. David Simister is the editor of Classic Car Weekly.

The Up GTI is the smallest hot hatch Volkswagen makes

Cricket club seeks volunteers and sponsors SOUTHPORT Trinity Cricket Club is seeking more volunteers and sponsors. The club has grown over the last five years with membership increasing threefold and it now has six junior teams and three senior teams. The club also has a large ‘All Stars’ junior cricket programme, which is set to progress further through its team of qualified coaches. Amongst their junior players they have a large number of district representatives, as well as Lancashire players and England Girls players. A club official said: “The club is run by a few key volunteers and players, so they need every bit of help they can to continue to build upon their recent success and keep cricket going in the community.” “There are several sponsorship opportunities available and it is important for the club to get these sponsorship deals in place to enable them to continue to fund the club and junior teams. “Even if it is just a match day ball every little helps.” To sponsor Southport Trinity CC, join a team or if you have younger children that would like to get involved in the ‘All Stars’ junior cricket programme contact:Jonny Firth 07925 420168 or email jonnyfirth@hotmail.com.

Aussie opening batsman Smithies to join Formby FORMBY have signed Australian opening batsman Tim Smithies as their overseas player for 2018. Smithies is described is a “prolific top order batsman” from Perth. Having joined his club Bayswater-Morley CC as a 12 year-old, over the last nine seasons, he has progressed through the age groups to become a regular in 1st grade since the 2016-17 summer. He has scored 320 first grade runs so far this season with a notable 105 and 94. Smithies is also a budding left-arm chinaman spinner. Formby have also signed fast bowler George Burrows from Wigan and left arm spinner Sabbir Patel from Preston. Burrows, 20, has represented Lancashire through the age groups and took 7-36 for the Lancashire 2nd XI last summer. Patel is regarded as an exciting prospect having taken 40 wickets last summer. The club hope he will help the club fill the void left after the departure of Gary Keedy.

Hat-trick for Gilchrist helps Port pull away from the drop zone Report by Jonathan O’Byrne Gainsborough 0 Southport 3 SOUTHPORT recorded a crucial victory against Gainsborough Trinity, ending a six month wait for a victory on the road. The Sandgrounders won by a three goal margin courtesy of Jason Gilchrist’s expert poaching chalking up his second hat-trick since his record transfer back in November. It lifted the Port four points above the relegation zone while consigning Gainsborough to a place in the bottom. After a tight first half hour it was the visitors whose superior quality which eventually told on an undulating surface. Dion Charles effort was parried to the feet of Gilchrist who cooly slotted the ball into the open goal from a tight angle. On the stroke of half time Charles’ superb slide rule pass found Gilchrist and the ‘Port number 9 was able to delicately slip the ball under the onrushing Walton from 18 yards to give Southport a decisive two goal lead. A third goal followed shortly after the restart, more wizardry from Dion Charles saw his effort hit the upright and it was no coincidence that the ball should fall to Gilchrist who made it 10 goals in 11 starts. Southport face basement side North Ferriby next Saturday.
