COMMUNITIES LEFT WITH NO BANKS!

Filming takes place at Ainsdale Nature Reserve. Top picture: Robert Carlyle posted his own photograph on social media when he started filming at Ainsdale.

WHEN the decision was taken earlier this month to close the last bank in Birkdale village, it marked the end of community banking across Southport. Now, the only banks that most residents can go to in the whole of the resort are in the town centre, leaving customers - many of them elderly and infirm - furious. Since the closure was announced of the RBS branch in Birkdale, Champion readers have been contacting us to voice their concerns at their now bank-less communities. Former schoolteacher Alan Coxon, a grandfather of four from Ainsdale, knows a number of Royal Bank of Scotland customers who used the Ainsdale village branch until it closed three years ago – and to avoid having to travel into Southport town centre, transferred to the bank's Birkdale

branch. But they were horrified to read in last week’s Champion that this branch is one of 162 that will be closed across the country. Birkdale is the latest communtiy in Southport to be left without any banking facilities. The village has seen:- TBS shut; NatWest closed and replaced with a Costa coffee shop; HSBC became The Allotment gin bar, and Barclays was turned into a bookmakers. The Birkdale branch of Santander closed last year and there are plans in the pipeline to turn it into a deli, wine shop and bar. It follows Ainsdale becoming bank-less three years ago after its Natwest and Barclays branches folded before its last bank, RBS closed. Continued inside

Aliens arrive in Ainsdale! The clues are on the mug for anyone wondering just what was going on down in the woods in Ainsdale over the past few days. BAFTA-winning actor Robert Carlyle was filming a television adaptation of War of the Worlds in Ainsdale Nature Reserve. It’s the first British television adaptation of HG Wells’ epic novel, which is already being touted as the BBC’s must-see Christmas drama. Filming took place over six days at Ainsdale, with more footage being shot on Formby beach.

TWO selfless foster carers from Sefton are on their way to Windsor as special guests of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to their wedding on Saturday. Dawn Butterworth, 47, and Louise Todd, 46, a couple from Southport, have been foster carers in the borough for six years and in that time have worked tirelessly to care for 24 children across the borough. It is their hard work, dedication and love of their role which has seen the duo nominated by the Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside to be special guests in the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding. They will spend the day at Windsor Castle where they will be able to listen to a live broadcast of the ceremony and watch the departure of the ride and Groom's Carriage Procession.

and Louise ahead of their once in a lifetime experience! “They have been foster carers in Sefton since 2012 and have cared for lots of children in that time from babies to teenagers! “The care Dawn and Louise have provided over the years has been exemplary to say the least and the impact they have had on positively shaping children's futures is invaluable. “Like all our foster carers Dawn and Louise are passionate about the children they care for and go above and beyond. “To have been given this honour shows just how much Dawn and Louise have done for fostering in the borough."

MP steps into bank closure furore From page 1

Churchtown, Marshside and Crossens also now have no banking facilities and Banks has just an ATM on Gravel Lane. Hillside has had no bank since its NatWest branch closed more than a decade ago. Mr Coxon revealed his fears for what it might mean for ‘thriving’ Birkdale village – as well as potential safety concerns for local businesses. He said: “This is very bad news for Birkdale, as it was for us in Ainsdale three years ago. It causes no end of inconvenience for bank customers, especially the elderly and disabled, who will now have to travel into the town centre. “It is also very inconvenient for business owners in the village, who will now have to take all of their daily takings and cash into town to bank it, which as well as taking up more of their time could also be

potentially dangerous for them. “Its a real shame to see the needs of customers being put last like this.” Meanwhile, Southport MP Damien Moore has spoken out against the planned closure of the last bank in Birkdale village and says he ‘vehemently disagrees’ with the move. He told the Champion that he will be meeting with bank chiefs at RBS to discuss his concerns. He said: “I was successful in keeping open the branches in the first round of RBS cuts, and continued to meet with representatives from the bank to secure their future. “Unfortunately, because most constituents seem to use Lord Street branch, RBS revised their decision. I vehemently disagree with it, and I will be making that clear to RBS.”

Bafta-winning actor films alien invasion in Ainsdale Nature Reserve... but not everyone is happy at scenes of devastation Report by Danielle Thompson From page 1 The 57 year old actor is famous for his roles in The Full Monty, 51st State, Trainspotting, Angela's Ashes and as a villain in the James Bond film, The World is Not Enough. Carlyle is joined in the three-part BBC drama by fellow stars Eleanor Tomlinson, famous for her role as Demelza in BBC drama Poldark, Rafe Spall from The Big Short and Rupert Graves from Sherlock. The series, unlike the 2005 Steven Spielberg adaption starring Tom Cruise, is true to the novel’s English setting and follows George (Spall) and his partner, Amy (Tomlinson) as they attempt to start a life together. Graves is Frederick, George’s elder brother, and Carlyle plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist. The show follows them as they face the escalating terror of an alien invasion. For weeks before filming started, Ainsdale Nature Reserve looked as though a meteor had hit it. Well, it had, sort of... Woodland was transformed into a scene of devastation ahead of filming, including a huge hole where a meteor was about to crash down to earth, with all of the trees around it crushed and charred. Eagle-eyed Champion readers then spotted a yellow canteen/toilets trailer appear in the woods. However, not all residents are happy about the scenes of destruction. One nature-lover, who does not want to be named, got in touch with the Champion to raise concerns about trees being axed at Ainsdale Nature Reserve. She said: “I walk there regularly and always thought how stunning the woods were, but I was shocked when, at the start of spring, vast areas of trees were culled. “It's a nature reserve so it's going to affect the

He told the Champion: “At our annual general meeting each year, we vote again on all of the roles. I was the leader of the Sefton Conservative group two years ago but I had to step down from the role due to ill health. “I was voted into the role again this year but it was completely unrelated to Cllr Jamieson's comments - his time in the role was ending at the AGM anyway as per our party rules. “Now I am in the role, I want to concentrate on moving the party forward and gaining even more seats.

birds and animals very badly and it was at a crucial time when a lot were coming out of hibernation looking for food and getting ready to nest. “Why was it allowed at all for this beautiful scene to become a war zone just for a film? Surely conservation has to come first!” Mammoth Screen, the production company behind the series revealed that they have used the reserve with permission from Natural England, who care for the nature site and that now filming has ended in the woods, they will help restore the site and encourage heather growth. A spokesperson said: “Following a very close consultation with Natural England, Ainsdale NNR was

chosen as one for the locations for the series. “Art and prop teams prepared the site for filming, involving the movement of trees, excavator work, scrub cutting and the burning of some of the rank vegetation. “Once filming is complete, Mammoth Screen will be assisting Natural England to create some dune health by clearing and seeding the ground to encourage heather growth. Dune health is one of the rarest wildlife habitats in Britain and will be a great addition to this part of the reserve. “Please be assured that Mammoth Screen will be following all advice administered by Natural England in the protection of the habitat.”

LIVERPOOL City Region metro mayor Steve Rotheram has marked one year since he was elected into the newly created role. Elections for a new Mayoral Combined Authority leader were held on May 4 last year, with the former Walton MP officially taking up the role four days later. The city region has had a Combined Authority since 2014, bringing together the political leaders of the six local authorities including Sefton along with Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, and Wirral - and the Local Enterprise Partnership. Commenting on the one-year anniversary, Mr Rotheram said: “This has been a very exciting first year as metro mayor of the Liverpool City Region and, working with the leaders of our six local authorities, we have already achieved so much. “Devolution means that we can make our own decisions here, rather than having them taken

making real progress towards a brighter future.” With the election of a Metro Mayor, that body became a Mayoral Combined Authority with additional powers over key priorities including employment and skills, strategic housing and planning, transport and highways, economic and business growth, energy and environment, culture, finance, European funding, information sharing, constitutional and governance issues. “Some of the key achievements over the last year include: our £5m Households into Work programme, helping 800 families into new jobs; building a new station at Maghull North; and securing £234m in additional government funding to modernise our transport network and connect the City Region to HS2. “This is just the start. I stood as Metro Mayor because I believe that devolution can be a game changer for our region. “One year on I’m more convinced than ever that we are making real progress towards a brighter future.”

Come and join us, say the Oddfellows MEMBERS of The Oddfellows Society, who aim to promote friendship in Southport and Ormskirk, are urging potential new faces to join them for their summer schedule. More than nine million people of all ages in the UK say they are lonely either often or always, according to research by The CoOp and the Red Cross. The Oddfellows aim to prevent this by encouraging people to meet their members and find out what they can offer. Judith Catton social events organiser for the Oddfellows said:

“We’re helping people to forge new friendships. We provide the perfect opportunity for people to make new friendships in a really easy, relaxed way. We want to make sure that people are resisting the urge to stay in and instead come join us.” The Oddfellows Society in Ormskirk and Southport have released their latest social events diary, with trips and activities running until the end of November.

Former councillor wants to be a self-styled ‘community champion’ Personal reasons led me to step down from political role, says David Barton, but he insists - ‘the good work must continue’ by Danielle Thompson

Drink driver was four times over the limit when stopped by police A WOMAN caught drink driving nearly four times over the legal limit has avoided a custodial sentence after a court heard she was worried about upcoming medical results. As the 48-year-old appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on May 9, it was heard that a member of the public had contacted police after seeing her get out of a Jaguar S-type car on Upper Aughton Street and appear to be under the influence of alcohol. When police arrived, she had already got back in her car and drove off in front of the officer. As he followed her she narrowly avoided colliding with several parked vehicles before she was pulled over on Kent Road. Prosecutor Andrew Page said: “She staggered, nearly falling over, and used her vehicle to keep herself upright. She smelt of alcohol, her eyes were glazed and bloodshot.” Subsequent breath tests showed she was driving with 139 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath, the legal limit being 35mcg/100ml. A probation report said the woman was having radiotherapy treatment. It stated: “She is extremely grateful that she has not crashed into anybody. Although she is not making an excuse for drink driving, she has been through a traumatic time.” Solicitor Nick Archer said that the breath alcohol reading was very high and sentencing started at 12 weeks custody, with a range from high level com-

munity order to six months in jail. However, he said there were three factors which reduced seriousness of the offence. She had no previous convictions, she was genuinely remorseful and seeking help with her drinking, and she also had a medical condition, he said. “She had surgery on March 28 and the results of her tests were due on April 24,” he said, “Clearly it was preying on her mind”. The magistrates said that after listening to the probation report and Mr Archer’s mitigation, and also taking into account her early guilty plea, they would “move away from custody” and would fine her £100 instead. Ordering that she participate with ten days of a rehabilitative activity and undertake six months of alcohol treatment, they banned her from driving for 34 months.

AN ex-councillor who stepped down from his role in the recent local elections is hoping to take on a new challenge – as a self-styled ‘community campaigner.’ David Barton represented Dukes Ward for four years after being elected in May 2014, stepping down weeks before the May 3 elections for what he termed were ‘personal reasons.’ Mr Barton worked on a number of projects during his time on the council, including the restoration of the town’s civic heritage, especially the Victorian verandahs and fascia frontages on Lord Street, work to improve the seafront area, campaigns to encourage and support local businesses and additions to many road safety and highways improvements. Mr Barton, who has lived in Southport all his life, says he cares passionately about the

He told the Champion this week: “With the support of the local community and through an approach of mutual respect and sincerity we have been able to achieve a great deal for the benefit of the people of Dukes Ward and the town as a whole. “Although it is unfortunate that I have had to take a step back from being a councillor for the time being, I do not want all the

good work and momentum we have built up in effecting change to stop. “It is my intention to continue using my experience and contacts to support residents and the wider Southport community and to work with them for the benefit of the town as a whole.” l Anyone who would like to contact David Barton for help with any issues in the town can email him at davidbarton.dukesward@outlook.com

Mausoleum open day to showcase £100k restoration

The mausoleum has been carefully restored

AN OPEN day is being held for members of the public to learn more about the extensive £100,000 restoration of the 19th Century Scarisbrick Mausoleum in Crossens. Specialist Tim Knox, who was recently appointed director of the Royal Collection, will be giving a talk called ‘Houses of the Dead’ on Saturday, May 26. He will speak about the restoration project as part of the Mausolea and Monuments Trust’s Open Day at the churchyard of St John’s Church, where the mausoleum is sited. The

event will start at 12.30pm and refreshments will be provided. A spokesperson for the Trust said: “This mausoleum, situated at Crossens, has recently undergone a complete restoration. It was built in 1895 by Charles Scarisbrick whose father had employed the English architect Pugin to build Scarisbrick Hall. It lay derelict and ignored for many years but now is restored close to its original condition.” Pugin, who died in September 1852, designed the interior of the Palace of Westminster and its iconic clock tower, later renamed the Elizabeth Tower, which houses the bell known as Big Ben. The spokesperson added that they are looking to create a Friends group to care

for the mausoleum. They added: “Now that the restoration is complete, we are keen to encourage local interest in the mausoleum. “We want to establish a local Friends group which can provide and manage controlled access to parties interested in the architecture and history of the mausoleum, supply local supervision to ensure that any required work or maintenance be advised to the Trust and to develop further research into the history and architecture of this engaging mausoleum. “The open day will enable local residents and interested groups to see the interior as well as the outside of the mausoleum and witness the great restoration work which has been carried out.” More information can be found at mmtrust.org.uk/events or call 07517 082846.

Court told he was on crutches trying to escape from a gang of men A MAN told a court he broke into Southport Little Theatre because he was so drunk he mistook it for his home address. Karl Hutson, 45, of Scarisbrick Street, pleaded guilty to criminal damage of glass door panels when he appeared at Sefton Magistrates Court on May 9. Andrew Page, prosecuting, said that when staff arrived at the theatre on the morning of Monday February 19 they discovered that the premises had been broken into over the previous weekend. “The theatre is owned and run by Southport Dramatic club as a charitable trust for the local community,” Mr Page said, “Nothing was stolen but broken glass and blood were scattered around.” Hutson, who attended court on crutches, was identified following tests on blood samples taken from the scene and he was subsequently interviewed by police. “He said he had been drinking on the Saturday night in Southport and classed himself as very drunk,” Mr Page said. He was walking to his home on Scarisbrick Street when he got chased by some males. He is on crutches after a road traffic accident four years previously. However, he managed to get to the address.” He told officers when he woke up the following morning with blood on his shirt and several cuts to his hands and head, his first thought was he had been assaulted. However, he then remembered smashing glass panels and going into a property, at

the time thinking that it was his own property. “He believed that it must have been his own property. The front of both properties are the same,” Mr Page said. The court heard that Hutson had five “like matters” on record, most recently a conviction from 2016 for an assault on a police officer and two matters of causing damage. Representing himself, Mr Hutson said he had been receiving help from a service which treats people with alcohol issues: “I am really sorry for what happened,” he said. “Out of stupidity I got very drunk. I thought it was my house.” Magistrates fined him £120, ordered that he pay £115 in costs and victim surcharge, and pay £225 in compensation to Little Theatre Southport.

Family to take on Snowdon challenge for Otis Baby suffers from rare liver condition Report by Danielle Thompson A 30-STRONG group of family and friends from Southport will be trekking up the highest mountain in Wales this weekend - with a baby - to raise funds for a charity close to their hearts. Jonathan and Danielle Roscoe will be undertaking the challenge on Saturday with their five-month-old son Otis. The couple are aiming to raise £2,500 for the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, as Otis has a rare liver condition. Jonathan, 33, who is a firefighter, said: “Our little superstar Otis was just five weeks old when he was diagnosed with the rare and life- threatening disease, biliary atresia. “He had major surgery to improve his liver function when he was just a few weeks old but unfortunately this was not successful and we now know he will need a liver transplant. “Since Otis was born, it has been a roller-coaster of emotions for us and this is where Children’s Liver Disease Foundation have been invaluable. They have provided information on Otis’ condition which has been helpful, not only for us but for wider family and even our GP. They have been there with support for us and we know that this support will be available to Otis as he grows up. “Sadly, there is still no cure for Otis. But throughout everything he has been through, Otis remains a super-happy, cheery little warrior. We

Jonathan and Danielle with their son Otis

want to do everything we can for him and other children like him which is why we have persuaded our friends to tackle Snowdon with us. “Danielle and I are pretty fit and enjoy walking and we thought this was something everyone could join in.” Family, friends and colleagues have been so touched by Otis’ story that the Roscoes are already close to their £2,500 target. Alison Taylor, chief executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation added: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. “In order to do this however, we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so we are delighted to hear that Jonathan and Danielle have inspired people to join them on their Snowdon trek.” You can add to their appeal at justgiving.com/fundraising/otis-for-cldf.

New lease of life for bath! Park Community Gardens group, where it will now be filled with colourful flowers in time for summer. Steve Smith, the council's environmental health and trading standards manager, said: “Flytipping is never acceptable, however we would like to thank Plughole Planters for their fantastic efforts in transforming this unsightly dumped bathtub into a beautiful and environmentally friendly planter. “There was never any need for this bathtub to be dumped in the first place as upcycling groups like Plughole Planters, as well as charities, would put them to bet-

ter use.” Morgan Griffin, managing director of Plughole Planters, said: “We were delighted that Sefton offered us the chance to upcycle this unsightly piece of fly-tipping. the planter will now be proudly displayed and filled with beautiful flowers at North Park Community Garden. “There are so many responsible and eco-friendly ways to get rid of your unwanted household items and this is a happy ending to an otherwise unsightly and illegal act.” Residents should report any instances of fly-tipping to Sefton Council.

HOW CAN SOMETHING THAT COSTS NOTHING CHANGE EVERYTHING?

Report by Danielle Thompson A SOUTHPORT man who claims he was sexually abused as a child, has released a tell-all book about his long fight to get justice for the victims of historical sex offences. Paul ‘Froggy ’ Waine, 54, and his partner Yvonne Wilde, 49, launched the Justice For Froggy campaign in August, 2015 to try and force the government’s hand into making sure there is emergency assistance and aid in place for all survivors of historical abuse. Paul has spent the last 18 months contributing to the largest criminal inquiry in British history into child sexual assault whilst in the care of the local authorities in Nottingham, where he grew up. The inquiry, which has been likened to the Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal, is believed to have taken place between 1997 and 2013. Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire Police are currently investigating allegations of child abuse in children’s homes going back as far as the 1940s. Paul told the Champion: “I was feeling desperate for a real sense of direction, which lead me and my partner Yvonne to start writing about my whole life from the beginning of my traumatic childhood and all the damage including consequences. I’ve revealed the whole truth for the entire world to see. “We’ve completed the book, Little Boy Wonder after 18 months of hard work, which tells my story from as early as 1969 to the present day. It is, claims Paul, ‘a compelling read, harrowing with many

twists and turns, very insightful and inspirational.’ “All I ever wanted was to be believed, no amount of compensation could ever substitute the lost of a childhood. “My story needs to be heard for the sake of all past and present victims and survivors of abuse. Who would have believed I was capable of liaising with government officials and rubbing shoulders with top councillors and baring my soul in my desperate fight to get justice for victims and survivors past, present and in the future. “I have also built a website, bluefrogsefton.com as another format to get my true story to the people.” Paul’s book is available to purchase as an eBook or paperback at amazon.com

AN ECO firm proved that they were awash with good ideas when they transformed an abandoned bath into a floral planter. Staff from Plughole Planters contacted Sefton Council to ask if they could take ownership of an acrylic tub which had been dumped on the roadside and ‘upcycle’ it into one of their signauture bathtub planters. The bathtub had been used on the council's social media channels to raise awareness of making sure people report fly-tipping to the local authority. Once completed, the transformed bathtub planter was generously donated to the North

Young netballers celebrate! A TALENTED team of young netballers have won the Leyland Sports Association's Junior League. Lynne Barnett, lead coach at Southport Netball Club, revealed that the Under 14s Girls' Team beat off competition from across the North West to win the League. She said: “The last two seasons the girls have been runners up in the same league and only missed out by one goal to come second in the season before, in the Leyland League – which they have now won! “Further recognition should go to the three girls from this team who

have also been selected to represent Merseyside county. The selection process is tough! “Netball has come a long way in recent years and that was clearly demonstrated in the recent win by the England Netball team in the Commonwealth games against Australia! Without a doubt, this has been the biggest news in the world of netball for a long time! “Southport Netball Club may only be a small club, but over the years the club has been able to offer the chance for hundreds of girls to excel at the sport.”

Double honour for eco pupils at St Cuthbert’s YOUNGSTERS from Churchtown Primary School have been celebrating Earth Day – as well as singing at a special service to mark a World War One hero’s bravery. Earth Day is held annually in almost 200 countries, coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, the world's largest environmental movement, to remind people about how best to look after the Earth and what impact we have on our environment. Jinnie Payne, headteacher at the St Cuthbert's Road school said: “This year’s theme was End Plastic Pollution and our eco champions' mission was to educate their peers in understanding the problems plastic causes to our environment and health. “All of the children wore blue or green clothing and activities were carried out across the school to raise awareness.” Meanwhile, children from the school took part in

of the Victoria Cross and a Victoria Cross Commemorative Flagstone was unveiled to mark his life at the War Memorial on Lord Street last month. Jinnie added: “For many years, Churchtown have been involved in the annual service commemorating the Southport war hero at his graveside, at St Cuthbert’s Church. This year marked 100 years and in honour of Private George Masters a commemorative flagstone was unveiled at the Southport War Memorial. “Our pupils played a special part in this poignant service, singing alongside the 156 Regiment Royal Logistics Corp band. They sang two special hymns, ‘When a Knight Won His Spurs' and 'To Be a Pilgrim' – each of which were sung beautifully. “The children were honoured to be a part of this truly memorable and important service.”

Visitors will be able to get up close to Birds of Prey at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary

Claws out for open day! STAFF and volunteers at an animal sanctuary are hoping visitors will get their claws into their next Birds of Prey Open Day, taking place this Sunday (May 20). Woodlands Animal Sanctuary on Sandy Lane in Holmeswood is the venue for the event from 11am to 3pm. Alongside all the resident sanctuary animals, visitors will also be able to meet and greet a variety of different birds of prey which are being brought along for the day, as well as watching a dog show. The open day will help provide essential funding for the animal charity, which relies solely on fundraising from such events to cover their running costs. Sally McDerby from the charity said: “You will be able to mooch around their picturesque site meeting our resident animals, such as Beanie and Dolly the cheeky

mother and daughter donkeys, view Holly, Carrie and Simba the cats, in their comfortable chalet before being able to see some of the wild native hedgehogs who are in our care while they are rehabilitated before being released back into the wild. “With a variety of tasty, hot and cold food and drinks, you will have no excuse not to while away a few hours, being entertained by the antics of the animals, browsing the many stalls available, watching, or indeed competing in the friendly but hotly contended dog show and all of this to help raise money for a local, worthwhile cause. “There will be an array of children’s games, a bouncy castle and the ever popular Teddy Tombola.” Entry cost £3 for adults and £1.50 for children.

Dad takes on sandstorms and scorpions in five-day Sahara Desert challenge Report by Danielle Thompson A SOUTHPORT dad faced scorpions, sandstorms and even hallucinations while competing in a brutal 24-hour nonstop 156-mile marathon across the Sahara Desert. But despite the dangers, Niall Brannigan, 49, completed the five-day Marathon Des Sables - known as the ‘toughest race on Earth’ held annually in Morocco. He took on blistering temperatures of up to 50°C to raise £5,000 for the national charity Guides Dogs for the Blind after being inspired by his grandad, Christy Tallon. To add to the trials of the experienced runner, who has already completed more than 20 marathons, he also had to carry his own supplies over the countless dunes, mountains and salt plains in a back pack - and was only allowed a limited amount of water. Competitors took on the multi-stage race over harsh terrain with humidity levels between 3% and 5%, meaning that the runners had to take salt tablets to stop them dehydrating, with many of them ending up on saline drips by the end of the very first day! Of the 1,000 runners who took part from across the world, 100 were forced to pull out. Niall Brannigan in training ahead of Neil, who trained with other North West the Marathon Des Sables Sables runners on the Formby sand dunes said: “At Christmas, I suffered an injury and but I was desperate, I hadn't run for 10 Read Champion online - www.champnews.com trauma your to the bone marrow in my right leg. weeks!

extreme environment but luckily it worked perfectly! It’s not just the physical challenge that is extreme, it’s the mental strength required to finish it. “One night around 2.30am, a violent sandstorm hit which lasted more than three hours - and every breath I took had a mouthful of sand in it! Doctors drilled my toenails to relieve pressure, drained fluid, burst the rest of my blisters and coated then with iodine so I could carry on, halfway through. “I saw a dead desert fox and a very-alive scorpion and ended up hallucinating very badly in the last 5km. I took 2,000 to 2,700 calories a day but still lost just over a stone in five days! “Our backpacks had an SOS button on it and trackers for organisers – and families to track us through the desert. There was also a webcam for loved ones to watch you cross each day's finish line, which my wife Kate and six year old twins Jack and Harry loved. “The desert is a wondrous place, so separated from any other place on Earth that it felt you could be on another planet.

Birthing business owner is given maternity ‘Oscar’ by Danielle Thompson A PERINATAL support business for expectant mums in Southport and Formby has been given a national award at what are known as the ‘Oscars of the maternity industry.’ Sian Gilmartin, 40, of The Daisy Foundation created a perinatal support method that has helped tens of thousands of parents UK-wide to prepare for positive birth and build their confidence. She took the joint Maternity Innovator of the Year title, alongside Rachel Gardner of Sheffield charity Forging Families, at the recent MaMa Conference Awards in Glasgow. The Daisy birthing classes use a mixture of active-antenatal teaching and support. The class blends yoga-inspired movement with breathing techniques, birth hypnosis and traditional antenatal education to help women build their confidence as they prepare for labour. Instead of aiming for one particular type of birth, The Daisy Foundation is passionately committed to ‘empowering all women to make the informed choices that are right for them and their family.’ As well as the

Sian Gilmartin

yoga-based birthing classes teachers offer classes for mums and their birth partners to support them as they prepare for parenthood. As a single mum, claiming tax credits so she could return to work, Sian took over the Lazy Daisy business in 2013, turned it into The Daisy Foundation and overhauled its birthing classes. Under her direction the business grew from a small unknown company to a UK-wide network of more than 150 women passionate about supporting pregnancy and parenting, all affectionately known as Daisies. Sian said: “This award is not about me, it’s about the fabulous network of Daisy teachers who

work so hard to support mums and dads through the tough challenges of pregnancy and parenthood. “The value of the reassurance that mums get when they return with their baby to see a familiar face, someone who has supported you throughout pregnancy and understands your needs, is hard to overestimate. “It is something that mums miss out on in our current system and it is crucial to improving maternal mental health and that is what drives The Daisy Foundation and all its teachers. This award is a great honour but serves as a reminder of how important our work is and how much more there still is to do.�

Volunteers set off from Sefton for Rwanda Report by Danielle Thompson A GROUP of worshippers, hospital and hospice staff from across Southport and Formby are volunteering for 10 days in Rwanda, starting from tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). A team of 21 volunteers, including worshippers from St Philip and St Paul with Wesley on Hampton Road, 11 staff from Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust and two members of staff from Queenscourt Hospice in Southport are setting off to help the community of Shyira in Rwanda until May 27. They will support existing services such as schools and a new hospital and help to set up a new palliative care service. The trip has been built on the many years of dedicated and highly effective work of the Formby-based Shyira Trust. This was set up in 2006 to continue work started by the congregation of St. Luke's Church in Formby and exists to serve the people of Rwanda by helping in the advancement of education and medical services. By working with one quite small community, it has been possible for them to make a real difference. Consultant clinical psychologist Dr Dominic Bray, one of the organisers of the trip, has been many times already. Dr Bray is a consultant in cancer and palliative care and works at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals, Aintree Hospital, Queenscourt Hospice and other hospices in the North West. He said: “The Rwanda trip brings out the very best of people. “We have already collected very generous

in Formby and his wife. “It’s a fantastic initiative drawing people together in a way we couldn’t have imagined when the idea was first mooted. “The trip is built on the many years of dedicated and highly effective work of the Formby-based Shyira Trust. The people in the group are not only excited by what they will take, but also by what they will get. When you’ve been there, you come back richer than you left.” We are only a phone call away!

Sportsman’s dinner event to mark 50 years of Sunday League football in town SOUTHPORT and District Football League are holding a sportsman’s dinner in the town to celebrate 50 years of Sunday League football. League bosses are holding the event at the Floral Hall on Friday, June 1 and it will consist of a three-course meal, guest speaker and comedian. League Chairman Bill Halfpenny who played in the first Sunday League Cup Final hopes that players past and present along with club man-

agers, secretaries, club members, supporters and anyone who is interested in helping to celebrate the event will attend. The league are also asking for any photographs of teams or players from down the years. These can be emailed to bill.halfpenny@btconnect.com. Tickets, which cost £30, can be bought from Bill at sdl50yeardinner@yahoo.com or by calling 07966295566.

Two more days of strikes announced THE RAIL, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) has confirmed further strike action in its ongoing dispute with Arriva Rail North over the role of guards on trains. The union claims the company is putting profits before safety and asks why agreements reached in Scotland and Wales can not also be reached in England. The rail company says that it is prepared to guarantee jobs until 2025, however, but the union must stop the strikes. All Arriva Rail North conductors, conductor Instructors and train driver members are instructed not to book on for any shifts between 0001 hours and 2359 hours on Thursday, 24th May 24, 2018 and Saturday, May 26, 2018. RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said: “It is a tribute to the

Report by Kenny Parker determination and professionalism of RMT members on Arriva Rail North that they have remained rock solid for over a year now in what is a battle to put public safety before private profit. “German-owned Northern Rail want to run half a million trains a year without a safety critical guard on board in a move that would wreck both safety and access to services and they should listen to their front-line staff and pull back from that plan immediately. “RMT has agreed arrangements in Wales and Scotland that enshrine the guard guarantee. “If it’s good enough for Wales and Scotland to have safe rail ser-

vices it should be good enough for the rest of Britain.” Richard Allan, Northern’s deputy manager director, said: “It is disappointing that RMT has chosen to target its strike action during the week of the Bank Holiday weekend, the first week of the new timetable and several events to commemorate the first anniversary of the Manchester attack. “We are still prepared to guarantee jobs and pay reviews for conductors until the end of our franchise in 2025, with the Government guaranteeing jobs beyond that, but both guarantees depend on RMT ending its strike action. ”We urge RMT to move away from its nationally coordinated strikes and allow its local representatives to engage in meaningful discussions with us on how we better serve customers on-board

NEW DATA PROTECTION RULES

What does it mean for your small business? You will no doubt have heard the ‘hype’ surrounding the new data protection rules coming into force on 25 May 2018. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to overhaul how your business processes and handles data. Just because you may run only a modest business does not mean you can ‘bury your head in the sand’ in relation to these reforms. Accountability Under GDPR, the “destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to” peoples’ data will have to be reported to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) (as well as the person who it is about) within 72 hours where it could have a detrimental impact on the person or “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”. Opt in not Opt out When you are relying on consent to lawfully use a person’s information you must clearly explain that consent is being given and there has to be a clear “positive opt-in” rather than an “opt-out” system. This is very different from the presumed consent model under which many businesses operate at present. Right to be forgotten

www.dphlaw.co.uk

The new regulation also gives individuals the power to have their personal data erased in some circumstances e.g. where it is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected, if consent is withdrawn or if there is no legitimate interest to keep it.

Specific protection for children Since children are generally more vulnerable and less aware of risks, GDPR includes parental consent for children up to age 16. Fines One of the biggest, and potentially crippling consequence of the GDPR for your business, is the power for regulators to fine businesses that do not comply with it - up to £20,000,000 or 4% of turnover. Preparing your business GDPR will have a varying and wide ranging impacts on all sorts of businesses and organisations from preparing new data policies, updating procedures, appointing a data controller and following the 12 step guide produced by the ICO

LETTERS to the Editor

It’s just criminal! So the assistant chief constable of Merseyside tells us that crime has gone up 14% but that we’re better off than some places. Well frankly I don't care about ‘some places’, I care about here and if he says it’s gone up 14% I'd put money on it it’s nearer 20% - because a lot of minor crime goes

unreported. People know that the police aren’t interested - it’s just more paperwork for them, and in the rare case where a petty criminal gets caught, the sentences handed out are a joke. Offenders are laughing their heads off. Name, address supplied

What social contract? Another ‘quango’ has arrived at an even higher level of ignorance and stupidity in suggesting that the ‘social contract’ between the young and state pensioners has been broken. I don’t remember signing up to that one! However this quango has given the nod to government that they should pay out £10,000 to each of our ‘risk aversed, overwhelmed-with-a-sense-of-entitlement young people’ and that this could be funded by pensioners paying more tax. Now just a few facts about my generation. We worked and paid our taxes (like me, many still do) we did not go on foreign holidays; we had secondhand beat-up runabout cars; no meals out every week (a chippy tea was a treat); smartphones where not glued to our eyes; sat navs were not

required to find our way home; if you could not afford things you made do; if it broke you repaired it. Their generation moan when they have to pay for higher education that at times produce no more than a degree in ‘thickology ’ and then wonder why they have no job at the end of it. Well, let me offer up a bit of elderly advice - learn something useful that will get you a paying job, then save up instead of living the high-life with all the latest whatevers and being up to the neck in debt. Hey presto! Before you know it you will have a home and be living an independent life, along with paying your taxes to support us OAP’s. Phil Taylor, Ainsdale

Coastal erosion has seen the size of the Freshfield National Trust car park reduced dramatically in size in the last couple of years and this has exacerbated the street parking problem on sunny weekends and it is high time Sefton Council ‘stepped up’ and took control of this unacceptable situation. There should be a raft of measures introduced including a temporary parking area serviced by a ‘park & ride’ facility which ferries beach tourists to and from the National Trust entrance, warning signs on the land side of the railway lines advising tourists that ‘the area is full’ (as is done on the Gower peninsula in South Wales) and an increased traffic warden presence to deter illegal parking. This problem is only going to get worse and some positive action from Sefton Council to Ormskirk’s Coronation Park returned to the 13th century when re-enactment group Historia Normannis set up camp for support residents and a weekend of medieval living and depicting the Fourth Crusade clash between the Crusader and the Byzantine armies. visitors is long overdue.

PICTURE of the week

RS (by email)

Picture by Martyn Snape.

Fine the litter louts We want people to enjoy As a Southport resident and user of Ainsdale Beach every day I feel I must write to express my disgust at the littering which has been a continual problem but highlighted particularly this Bank Holiday weekend. When the beach is opened it is pristine with very little obvious litter. However, by the end of the day it resembles a landfill sight, not a beautiful area of sand. When did we become so selfish and thoughtless that leaving boxes of takeaway food, plastic wrappers and soiled nappies became the norm to us? How is it that when you visit the beaches of Southern France or Australia there is no rubbish visible and zero tolerance of littering?

Obviously people here need to be trained that this littering behaviour is neither normal or acceptable. Please can the wardens be given more powers to fine these litter louts on their exit from the beach. Can they give every car paying their entry fee a large black bin bag with instructions to take it home or to discard it in a skip at the exit and for this to be monitored. Increase the entry price to include the price of bin bags and skip hire. We really are losing any pride in our country if this pervasive behaviour is allowed to continue without consequences. G Maxwell Southport

the coast - not abuse it Visitors to Formby are welcome and it is no surprise to us living here that so many people wish to come and enjoy our wonderful coast. It is great when people want to come here and enjoy glorious weather but it is unacceptable for residents to be, in effect, prisoners in their own homes. I have written to the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police to ask what he plans to do to avoid a repeat of the traffic chaos that we saw on the last Bank Holiday. It is also disappointing and unacceptable for visitors to come and

disrespect the area by parking illegally and leaving litter behind. We want people to enjoy our coast but not abuse it. I have also written to the National Trust to ask what plans they have to increase the amount of parking available for visitors and to improve communication with visitors about the availability of parking. It would be wrong to simply accept a situation where residents are dreading the next sunny day. Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson

Why no street name for George in Southport? I was proud to read about one of our local heroes, George Masters V.C. A commemorative plaque is a great idea and rightly, we should be proud of men like George. But recently, I read that he is being honoured in another way, by having a street named after him. Again, a great idea, but reading further it said that this road is in Bootle, not Southport! Why? This I find quite strange. But there again, many things that Sefton does are strange. Dot Vickers Southport resident

Rethink needed on leases Another business in Southport Market ‘The Plant Academy ’ has closed its doors. This time its not only about business rates but, I understand, inflexible lease arrangements to market traders. Sefton council need to rethink the lease arrangements, giving more flexibility to small start up businesses so they can make a success of their business. I feel so annoyed that such a great vegan cafe has gone out of business. Charles Woods Southport

Amount of rubbish on beach depressed me I went to one of Sefton’s beaches on Tuesday morning after the Bank holiday weekend and I could not believe the amount of rubbish strewn from the tide mark and up into the dunes. I was feeling quite depressed due to helping in the last few months cleaning up the beach, although four hours later I was amazed to see almost

all the rubbish picked up by the Rangers. Congratulations and well done to all of them. There is still a lot of rubbish in the dunes which takes a lot of time and effort to pick up. Next volunteer beach clean is Friday, May 25. Meet at the Discovery Centre for 10.30am. Melanie Horridge, Ainsdale

Sefton - take a leaf out of East Riding’s book! We returned from a break in East Yorkshire and were amazed at their beaches and resorts. They were so clean and tidy - the beach at Bridlington (no sign of undergrowth) was spotless, regularly cleared by a tractor, had plenty of clean toilets along the promenade and even had beach volleyball courts too. The only thing I saw in common was the land train. On Bank Holiday Monday, I drove along the promenade in Southport. It was a mass of rubbish the whole length, car parks were covered, shameful. Sefton council needs to take a look at East Riding, clear the beach of the grass, (the grass has almost reached the pier on the north side and is moving at speed on the south side too) and keep everything clean, otherwise we will not have any tourism at the rate things are deteriorating. Never mind spending ridiculous amounts on 20 mile an hour signs - spend money on signage telling people to pick up their litter otherwise fines will be incurred (up to a £1,000 I believe in East ridings) supply more bins and empty them regularly. Send the mini road sweeper along the promenade early every morning so it looks like we care about our resort, which as residents we do! Come on Sefton make this an area to be really proud of!

Martin Mere news

Pondering over what to do this summer? A new development at WWT Martin Mere might provide the answer! Work has begun this week on a major new Pond Zone development at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre. W Nick Brooks, Centre Manager at Martin N Mere, welcomed the plans. He said: “Pond M dipping is still one of the most favourite di activities ac that families enjoy at Martin Mere. They get their net and delve into M what wh is now artificial concrete ponds to see what creatures they can find – this new development will allow families to pond dip dev in a natural setting and it is going to be a great grea new attraction for us.” Ponds Pond make perfect abodes for lots of interesting invertebrates and now visitors to the reserve will be able to meet them. The brand new attraction, generously funded by players of People’s Post Code Lottery, is made up of four raised-dipping ponds, and opens to the public this summer. There is also one existing natural pond where visitors will have the opportunity to get up close to the residents. A teaching space will also provide kids with the chance to see what they’ve caught under a microscope and learn about the science of wetland nature.

Nick continues: “Pond zones make for fascinating close encounters with nymphs, water boatmen and dragonflies amongst other water-dwelling life. It offers our visitors a chance to learn more about animals who thrive in these environments. “WWT is about getting up close to nature, and our new pond zone feature promises to enhance that experience for our visitors.” As well as providing technical equipment to enhance the pond dipping experience, the new timber classroom will also feature magnetic pond profiles on the walls for teaching and screens to project findings. The water features will be draped with a netted cover to prevent birds at Martin Mere moving in and claiming the ponds for themselves. WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am to 6pm and parking is free of charge. Situated off the A59, it is signposted from the M61, M58 and M6. The Centre is also accessible via the Southport to Manchester and the Liverpool to Preston line by train from Burscough Rail Stations.

Report by Kenny Parker LIVERPOOL FC ’s oldest living former captain, who at one time held the record for the fastest hat-trick in English football history, has been honoured by the club. Johnny Wheeler, 89, played for the Reds between 1956 and 1963, and was captain in the 1958/9 season. He was invited to the club’s Anfield stadium boardroom before Liverpool’s recent home game with Stoke City, where club CEO Peter Moore presented him with a photograph from his playing days signed by Jurgen Klopp and the following message from the Liverpool boss: “Dear Johnny, LFC is only the club it is today thanks to players like you. You will never walk alone, Jurgen Klopp.” His daughter Sue Taylor, from Tarleton, said her dad and his family were touched by the tribute and the love shown her father by the fans. Sadly, Johnny now suffers from dementia but Sue says that opportunities to reminisce are important and Liverpool FC pulled out all the stops to make sure the day was a very special occasion. She said: “For anybody that has

dementia they remember the past and it’s so important that we help them to do so. “It has been so wonderful what Liverpool Football Club have done to contribute to that.” Johnny, who was born in

Crosby in 1928 and moved to Burscough in the early 60s, is also a cousin of another Liverpool great Ronnie Moran whom he played alongside. He played 177 times for the Reds, scoring 23 goals and made history in November 1956 when he scored against Port Vale in the 81st, 82nd and 85th minute - the fastest hat-trick on record until Robbie Fowler’s effort for LIverpool FC in 1994, which was surpassed by Sadio Mane, now a Liverpool player, for Southampton in 2015. He was also picked to play for England in 1954 against Northern Ireland. Sue added: “While walking to the boardroom, fans were stopping my dad for his autograph and he honoured every single one. Even with his dementia it was such a wonderful day.”

POTENTIAL nurses in Sefton are being urged to consider joining the profession. The message comes as celebrations marking International Nurses Day got underway. NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS South Sefton CCG are marking the career throughout May by highlighting the work of their team, led by chief nurse Debbie Fagan. Choosing nursing as a career offers a world of opportunities and experiences that many people wouldn’t associate with the profession – that’s the message from Sefton health commissioners after International Nurses’ Day on May 12, which celebrates the work of nurses in dedicating themselves to caring for others. The team is made up of qualified nurses who have since moved into commissioning and together they are responsible for ensuring that health services in Sefton are safe for the people

Karen Garside, the CCGs’ designated nurse for safeguarding children

who use them. A relatively new member of the team is Karen Garside, who is the CCGs’ designated nurse for safeguarding children. Speaking about Nurses’ Day 2018, and the experiences she has had in her career, Karen said: “I’ve been a nurse for more than 27 years and I really value the fact that my work makes a difference to young people all over Sefton. “I’ve done a variety of different roles including working in a hospital, working as a health visitor

and then with children, young people and their families. “It was when I was a health visitor that I realised how I could make a difference for children who were at risk of harm or abuse. “I worked in a mixture of deprived and affluent areas and safeguarding was a key part of this work, supporting families and working with partners to ensure children and young people were safe from harm, including physical, sexual, emotional harm and neglect. “Although I no longer have direct contact with children and young people at an operational level, I enjoy the fact that I can still make a difference through working at a strategic level in partnership with different agencies to ensure we have the overarching systems and processes in place to continue to meet their needs and ensure they are protected from harm. “My workload is very varied and can include supporting a serious case review, checking the quality of a local health service and developing policies to tackle issues such as child exploitation.” Find out more about nursing as a career at rcn.org.uk/nurses-day

Liverpool Central is named one of most popular train stations in passenger survey LIVERPOOL Central train station has been named one of the most popular in the UK. Independent watchdog Transport Focus took the views of more than 28,000 people at 56 stations for its ranking. Of those surveyed at Liverpool Central station, 91% said they were satisfied which placed the sixth highest in Britain. By comparison, the most popular was London King's Cross with 96% satisfaction, and

at the other end of the scale Glasgow Queen Street was the most unpopular with 58%. Transport Focus said the top priorities for passengers were arrival time information, waiting rooms and the overall look of the station when it carried out the survey between September and November last year. Liverpool Central is the busiest underground station in the UK outside London.

Grandson unearths swimming certificate from 100 years ago

Homes are on the move!

A social housing provider has transferred more than 200 homes to a ‘placemaking’ group. Some 147 social rented homes in Southport were transferred by social housing provider Stonewater to Places for People Homes. Placemaking is defined as a ‘multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces.’ The transfer also includes estate management responsibilities for 72 privately owned properties in the town. The 219 properties have been transferred due to their ‘significant distance’ from Stonewater’s nearest office. Stonewater, which manages 31,500 homes across England, consulted with tenants about the transfer and gained agreement from Homes England and Sefton Council before going ahead with the sale. Places for People Homes owns or manages nearly 16,000 homes in the North West, and around 195,000 homes across the UK. Sue Shirt, Stonewater’s executive director said: “We want to provide customers with the best housing service possible. “These homes are around 60 miles away from our nearest office in Elland, West Yorkshire, and we believe our customers would benefit from a more locally-focused housing management team. Places for People Homes not only has a strong local presence and knowledge of the area, they share our passion for great customer service. We’re extremely confident that they will deliver a first-rate service which reflects and responds to customer needs.”

BRIDAL EXHIBITION

THE grandson of a woman from Southport is appealing for people in the town with ‘interesting records’ from the past 100 years to get in touch. Mark Fagan is the grandson of Gladys Ball, nee Clift, who was born on June 7, 1906 and passed away aged 88 on July 17, 1994. She was married to Richard and they had two daughters, Muriel and Sylvia. When Mark was going through her possessions recently, he found some old certificates including a ‘First Class Swimming Certificate’ presented to Gladys by the Southport Education Committee, for

proficiency in swimming 100 metres in 100 seconds of the 120 seconds allowed. It was signed by Edwin Owen, the chairman of the Education Committee and William Allanach, education secretary, on October 1, 1918. The photographs included on the certificate, which is almost 100 years old, show that she had learnt how to swim at the Southport open air pool. Mark told the Champion: “The records are really interesting - I’d love to hear more from people who may have similar records from such a long time ago.” You can call Mark on 07707 872593

Confusing train fares are driving me off the rails ACCORDING to an article in a prominent railway magazine I've been reading, following years of growth in passenger numbers since privatisation, passenger figures for 2017 were 1.73 billion - 19 million fewer than 2016. If these figures don't worry the train operators, they jolly well should do. Now this article, by a respected rail expert, largely blames this 1.1% slump on the sale of season tickets, I think rightly, on changing working practices, with the traditional fiveday working week becoming less common and many folk no longer work a strict 9am-5pm, meaning that buying off-peak tickets works out cheaper. You can of course add to that the increasing number of people working from home using their computers. And I imagine he is quite right, and maybe the railway companies seriously should consider more flexible ‘seasons’ for any three or four days out of the traditional five perhaps. But it also seems to me that they should also be thinking in terms of the long-distance and leisure market. When I was a regular train traveller, sometimes covering many hundreds of miles in a week, train travel was simpler - very much simpler - than it is now. For instance, if I wished to travel from Liverpool to Norwich (which I did several times a year), I could buy a full return or, with time restrictions, a ‘saver.’ With either of these options you could choose ‘Via London’ or ‘Not Valid Via London.’ It cost the same either way and in fact the savvy individual would choose ‘Via London’ because in fact this ticket was valid either as the name implies for travel changing in the capital (and the underground journey was free too) or on the so-called ‘direct’ service. Incidentally, believe it or not, there is still a train from Lime Street to Norwich every hour. It is a Magical Mystery Tour of the Peak District and the Fens and takes as long as the ‘via’ - but it is accomplished on one train and the scenery is beautiful.

I always bought a ‘via’ ticket though I only occasionally actually travelled via London. You can of course still travel by either route - but you must specify exactly the route you wish to take and stick to it. And this is where things come unstuck. On the ‘direct’ train you can still buy a full ‘open’ return, usable at any time of the day, there or back. Or you can buy ‘advance’ single tickets which can work out far cheaper but you MUST travel on a particular timed train and your ticket is not valid on the services of other train operators in the event of breakdowns or other calamities. So yes, you can now get to Norwich and back more cheaply than ever but there are serious ‘buts’ and if you play with your computer for long enough you can quite possibly find it cheaper still if you bought two or three different tickets covering places en-route. Most rail insiders agree that a complete review of the ticketing system is needed and I do not claim to be the oracle that can save our railways. I would be far more happy being able simply to go down to any station and just ask for a ticket to wherever, and be given perhaps three choices only as to what sort of ticket I wanted. Of course there would be winners and losers in this game - but at least you would know what you were paying for and wouldn't have to be a computer genius hopefully to bag the best bargain.

Species (PTES) is asking for families, individuals or groups of friends across the UK to record sightings on six summer evenings, as part of an ongoing European study. All volunteers need to do is walk 500metres

each time, keeping an eye out for the insects, recording sightings at the website:stagbeetlemonitoring.org. Stag beetles are Britain’s largest land beetle. The males reach upto 7.5cm in size, with their large antlerlike jaws making them easy to spot.

Laura Bower from the charity said: “Loss of habitat and lack of dead or decaying wood are just two of the reasons why stag beetles need our help. By making gardens stag beetle friendly, the public can help reverse the decline of this iconic insect.”

Liverpool chosen to host 2022 World Artistic Gymnastic Championships LIVERPOOL has been selected as the host city for the 2022 World Artistic Gymnastic Championships. The unanimous decision by the Federation of International Gymnastics (FIG) follows a combined bid between British Gymnastics, Liverpool City Council and UK Sport. This is only the third time in the event's history that it will be held in the UK, most recently in Glasgow in 2015. The 2022 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, to be held at the Echo Arena, will be one of the largest international sporting events ever to be held in Liverpool with an estimated 600 gymnasts from 90 countries taking part in

ten days of competition. The local economic impact of the event is estimated at £5.1 million. Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “It is a huge sporting coup for Liverpool to host the World Gymnastics Championships in 2022 and a unique opportunity to showcase the city to a global audience. “Liverpool has a fantastic track record in nurturing gymnastic talent, like Beth Tweddle, and we’ve fostered a great relationship with British Gymnastics so the 2022 World Championships will be a great way to celebrate our decadelong journey together and kickstart the countdown to the Paris Olympics. “With our world class facilities,

West Lancashire’s Independent

Merc Specialists

brilliant partners and unbelievably passionate crowds we look forward to giving the sport of gymnastics a World Championships to remember.” British Gymnastics Chief Executive Officer, Jane Allen, said: “We are delighted Liverpool has been selected to host the 2022 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. What an exciting year it’s going to be with the 2022 Commonwealth Games also taking place on home soil. “The World Championships should be a qualifying event for the 2024 Olympic Games so expect to see the World’s absolute best at Liverpool 2022 including many international Olympic stars.”

Mersey Ferries announce their Summer Evening Cruise programme Report by Henry James THE River Mersey will be alive with the sound of music this summer when Liverpool’s iconic ferries set sail for a series of evening cruises. Mersey Ferries have announced the 2018 Summer Evening Cruise programme, with sailings taking place on Friday and Saturday nights for the first time. The cruises offer live music from talented local artists including Marc Kenny, Callum Mac and Lucy Mayhew – who kicked off the season last Saturday, May 12. The two-hour evening sails, which depart from Seacombe at 7.30pm and at 7.40pm from Pier Head, Liverpool offer breathtaking views of the sunset over Liverpool's unique UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront. Passengers can experience a fully licensed paid bar and time to enjoy with their friends and family singing and dancing along on the decks of the iconic vessels. The Summer Evening Cruises run until Septem-

ber and are part of Mersey Ferries’ events programme, helping the city of Liverpool celebrate ten years since being named European Capital of Culture. Alongside the evening cruises, Mersey Ferries will also host a series of special cruises, including Beatles Tribute Cruises, The Making of Motown tribute cruise and a viewing cruise for the Tall Ships, which come to the River Mersey on 28 May. “We’ve got an incredible line up of talent this year for the Summer Evening Cruise programme,” said Gary Evans of the Mersey Ferries. “The cruises proved really popular last year – with over 2,600 visitors enjoying them - so we hope to see even more people this year digging out their dancing shoes and joining others for a night of fantastic entertainment.” Tickets are expected to sell out fast for many of the sailings in the Summer Evening Cruises programme this year, so for more information or to book places visit www.merseyferries.co.uk/eve, call the ticket office on 0151 330 1003, visit any Mersey Ferries Ferry Terminal or follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Win tickets to new musical THE new show An Officer And A Gentleman - The Musical is coming to the Liverpool Empire next week (May 2126) and the Champion has five pairs of tickets to give away. Nikolai Foster, director of An Officer and Gentleman – The Musical said: “Douglas Day Stewart wrote An Officer and a Gentleman in response to his time serving in the American Air Force and the challenges he faced during training. It is a visceral, uncompromising and ultimately tender portrait of these personal experiences and the lives of folk living near the training facility in the early 1980s. “We are proud to have assembled such an accomplished company of actors to create our production and realise this beautiful portrait of working class lives. All of us at Curve are excited to tell this story - set to a fantastic 80s playlist - and to be working with the talented team at Jamie

Wilson Productions. “Productions like this couldn’t be made without the support of our collaborators and we are thrilled to be working with Jamie and his team. Officer will certainly be a memorable moment in our theatre's 10th birthday year.” Four-time Laurence Olivier Award nominated actress Emma Williams will play Paula Pokrifki. Emma’s previous credits include Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. To be in with a chance of winning the tickets which are for the opening night (May 21), answer this following question. Name the actor, who has also appeared in Pretty Woman and Chicago, who starred in the film An Officer And A Gentleman. Please email your answers to henry.james@champnews.com by noon by this Friday (May 18). The usual Champion rules apply.

ARE YOU the sort of tortured soul who gets all mistyeyed over the Ford Orion? Or that discerning driver who wishes that Vauxhall could bring the Belmont back? Don’t worry, it’s not a trick question. I know that there really are people out there who thought both of these Eighties offerings were thoroughly sensible – if utterly style-free - small saloons that weren’t to be sniffed at. It’s only in the following decade, when the fat-bottomed brethren of the Escort and Astra became joyrider favourites and popped up regularly on Police, Camera, Action that they finally lost their appeal as unpretentious shopping chariots and slipped firmly into banger-dom. But if you’re the sort of person who looks back fondly on the Triumph Acclaim and is utterly baffled by today’s fashion-conscious off-roaders when all that people should really want is a cheap, reliable saloon, then you’d be forgiven for wondering what happened to the Orion’s ilk. Ford hasn’t sold a Focus saloon for nearly a decade and Vauxhall gave up with booted Astras a long time ago. If you want a new car with a proper boot rather than one of these newfangled hatchbacks then you have to go up a size to the Audi A4s and Jaguar XEs of this world. Unless, of course, you go knocking at Honda’s door in about two months’ time. Despite the best efforts of some Blade Runner-esque styling and a mad Type-R hot hatch version the Civic is still proving a hit with the sort of sensible Brits who just want a normal, reliable car. So introducing a four-door saloon version is a stroke of genius. Unlike its hatchback cousin this new Civic isn’t being built at Swindon – it’s actually being bolted together at Honda’s Turkish factory – but otherwise it’s business as usual, with a 1.0-litre petrol or a 1.6-litre turbodiesel doing all the hard work beneath the bonnet. It’ll have the same boringly solid interior materials too, but because the new arrival’s longer and wider than the hatchback it’ll be even roomier on the inside. There’s no word on pricing yet, but if it’s anything like the five-door model you should be able to slip into one for under £20,000. It’s just a shame that Honda’s fallen at the final hurdle. In order to be a proper small saloon the new Civic needed to look exactly like the hatchback with a really awkward boot grafted onto its rump and only be available in beige, white, or grey. Instead, they’ve made it given it a lovely, coupe-esque profile, set off by metallic colours and alloy wheels that set the shape off without shouting too loudly. Whisper it quietly, but I think it might actually look better than the hatchback it’s based on. That, Honda, just won’t do. Back to the drawing board, chaps!

Brilliant bowling spell by Aitchison sets up Formby win IT’S tight at the top of Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division with the top three of Formby, Northern and Bootle separated by just three points, writes Glenn Wallworth. Formby moved top with a five wicket home win against Rainford. The visitors chose to bat first and were dismissed for 135, with Comfrey Edgeworth 51 and skipper David Snellgrove 39 the only batsman to offer much resistance against an attack brilliantly led by Ben Aitchison who claimed 5-23 off 14 overs In reply, Karl Brown 39 and Lukman Vahaluwala 36 set the hosts on their way before Ollie Sutton 9* saw them to victory on 136-5.

In reply, skipper James Cole 39 and Chris Laker 24 put the visitors in a strong position on 80-3, before a superb spell of bowling led by Chris Liptrot 5-54 and Purser 4-36 saw Northern lose their last seven wickets for 24 runs as they were dismissed for 108. Ormskirk moved up to fourth place with a comprehensive 122 run win at Lytham. Opener Andy Baybutt 76, Josh Bohannon 74 and an unbeaten 38 from George Lavelle enabled the visitors to declare on 224-3. In reply, skipper Ben Saunders top scored with 29 for Lytham who were bowled out for 102, with Tom Hartley 3-13 and Ryan Maddock 3-21 taking the bulk of the wickets.

In reply, the visitors also struggled with the bat and an unbeaten 45* from opener Arslan Dar proved to be the difference as the sealed victory on 77-6 with Matthew Fenney taking 3-17.

Watson moves quickly to beef up squad Manager brings in goalkeeper and central defender to bolster back line By Champion Reporter SOUTHPORT manager Liam Watson wasted no time on strengthening his squad, signing goalkeeper Dan Hanford and central defender Ryan Astles just days after taking over the role. Both have joined on a free transfer on two year deals. Hanford, 27, has formerly played for Carlisle United and most recently for National League side Gateshead. As well as Football League experience, Hanford has represented Wales at U17 and U19 level. He told the club’s website: “After speaking to everyone at the club, I think they are going in the right direction and it’s something that I wanted to be a part of. “Southport have ambitions to be in the EFL and they want to do it the right way”. Manager Liam Watson said: “Dan brings experience “He’s been playing at a higher level.
