A GROUP of concerned parents of children who attend the town’s King George V College are calling for the removal of the Principal and the Chair of Governors after a damning set of Ofsted results. The popular Scarisbrick New Road college was given an ‘inadequate’ rating by the education watchdog last month, with standards of teaching, learning and student progress ‘deteriorating’ since the last time the college was inspected in March 2012.

Group fears for future of college after damning report KGV chiefs reacted to the new rating with surprise and disappointment and claimed it doesn’t reflect the string of positive exam results from students. However, a group of anonymous parents have started a campaign to have Principal Adele Wills and Chair of Govenors John Rostron removed from their positions in an effort to ‘save’ the college. A statement from the ‘KGV Parents

For Change’ group reads: “When the current principal arrived in 2010 KGV was rated ‘Outstanding’ but since fell to ‘Good’ in 2012 and now ‘Inadequate’. “A bad Ofsted result can often lead to closure as we saw with Ainsdale High School – as we all know in 2005 after an inadequate report the school announced its closure just a year later.

Presenter Matt Baker leads BBC team on Children In Need mission THE BBC TV One Show team cycled through Southport last Saturday as part of their annual Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge. Now in its fourth year and having raised over £5 million for the charity, the team are hoping this will be their best fundraiser yet. Beginning at the BBC’s Media City in Salford, the rickshaw will undertake a journey across England, finishing live at the EastEnders set during the BBC Children in Need appeal this Friday, November 14. Team Rickshaw is made up of five young people, each supported by projects funded by BBC Children in Need, who are currently powering the rickshaw more than 450 miles. This year the rickshaw will be pedalled solely by the young riders, although The One Show presenters will be offering their support and advice with presenter Matt Baker reporting live from the road as he cycles alongside the team. Speaking of the challenge Matt said: “We’re hoping that Team Rickshaw will raise more than ever, so the pressure is really on for the riders. “And of course, to the Great British public, we need your support.

there is nothing to see? “Without a new principle or chair of governors, KGV’s reputation is shot and the college is likely to close.” The group are now urging like minded parents and local

residents to write to the Sixth Form College Commissioner Peter Mucklow and Southport MP John Pugh to push the issue. Councillor Iain Brodie Browne shares the views of

Resort actor is named as first ever Queenscourt Patron

David Lonsdale Stockwell in ITV’s long running drama Heartbeat, a character he played for nearly 18 years. He is currently filming for television in Liverpool. David will be carrying out a number of functions for Queenscourt and said: “I am delighted and honoured to be asked to become the first Patron of Queenscourt Hospice. “Like most people I knew of Queenscourt but it was only when I went in and heard and saw at first hand just what is provided for patients and their loved ones when they need it most that I fully understood how very fortunate we are to have Queenscourt serving the people of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire. “I look forward to supporting them for many years.”

Will Sainsbury’s ditch Kew megastore plan? by Ollie Cowan DOUBTS have been cast over the future of the potential Sainsbury’s megastore development in Kew after it was reported that the supermarket chain is to scrap opening larger stores. Retailer J Sainsbury’s is set to announce a strategic review this week which is believed to reveal a number of cost cutting measures which would allow them more money to take on rivals Aldi and Lidl. Part of the strategic review is expected to announce a reluctance to build new megastores – which could mean the proposed Meols Cop retail outlet may not go ahead. Andrew Sanderson, Sainsbury’s Regional Development Manager declined to directly address the issue, but instead told The Champion that they are awaiting the outcome of further planning decisions before going ahead. Sefton Council last month approved plans to redevelop the existing Homebase store and two adjacent vacant units into a new Sainsbury’s foodstore with a sales area of 60,000 square foot.

Scheme could be left on the shelf after bosses announce ‘strategic review’ of new openings

How the Sainsbury’s store would look if plans go ahead The plans also include revised car parking, a petrol filling station as well as improved pedestrian access and landscaping. However the final decision on whether or not the development goes ahead rests with the

Secretary of State. Mr Sanderson told the Champion: “Now this application has been approved by Sefton Council, it has gone to the Secretary of State for further consideration. “We will continue to work closely with the Council in the hope of receiving a positive response from the Secretary of State in the coming weeks.” Resort MP John Pugh said it may be sensible for Sainsbury’s to ditch the plans for Meols Cop as he believes figures quoted in a traffic analysis report presented to the council contain ‘serious’ flaws. He said: “There are serious and very big flaws in the traffic analysis presented to Sefton. “If these are not corrected not only will the traffic impact be unmanageable but the council could be legally at risk if collisions or injuries take place. “Minimally we would need traffic lights at the Meols Cop roundabout. “There is no case for rushing on with this if it makes limited commercial sense to Sainsbury’s and provokes chaos on the road and risk to the council. “Pause for thought and wait for the new studies just announced on Southport town centre to bear fruit.”

QUEENSCOURT Hospice has announced the appointment of David Lonsdale as their very first Patron. Following an approach, the well known actor agreed to meet with the Director of Non Clinical Services Jane Royds and after a tour of the facilities and hearing of the incredible work that Queenscourt does, David was quick to agree to support the Hospice and become a Patron. Jane Royds said: “It was important to us that our first Patron was a local person and we wanted someone that was high profile but also someone that was approachable and supportive of the vital services we provide. “David ticked all the right boxes and we are absolutely delighted to have such a well known actor supporting our vital work.” Having spent his early years in Southport, David left town in 1981 to train at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London’s Barbican Centre.

by Ollie Cowan MP John Pugh unwittingly became embroiled in a cat ‘abduction’ scare after his pet was ‘kidnapped’ by mistake. Wilson, one of two Pugh family cats, fell victim to a case of mistaken identity after an animal rescue team thought the male feline was actually a missing female who had been reported as lost in the area. The mistaken moggie was caught by a five strong team of animal rescue volunteers and whisked off to a shelter in Kirkby. The ‘rescuers’ eventually realised their mistake after Wilson was correctly identified by his microchip and he was later returned home by the red faced team. He told The Champion: “We got Wilson originally and our other cat from the RSPCA in New Cut Lane where chipping is mandatory. “In a case like this it can be

Merseytravel pulls out the stops for bus users in village

Man who stopped runaway car ended up in court... on drink driving charge Family hit out at legal system after case is thrown out A SOUTHPORT man who got into a runaway vehicle to stop it rolling backwards down a hill, ended up in court on a drink–driving charge. But following a trial at Sefton Magistrates Court, the case against 21–year–old Andrew Brough was thrown out with Mr Brough being found not guilty. Mr Brough, 21, of Broome Road, had been drinking with a friend in a Fiat Punto parked up on Warwick Street at 9am on the morning of July 20 when an argument between the two broke out which caused Mr Brough to walk off. But the friend then insisted on driving the car to buy more alcohol but ended up trying to push the car up a hill. Continuing to argue with him, he said he took the keys out of the ignition and threw them at his friend, who then put his hands on the bonnet and the car started to roll backwards.

by Kenny Parker “No–one was in the car at all so I got into the car on my knees, on the driver’s side, and pulled the handbrake.” He got fully into the driver’s seat only when it stopped and came to rest against a lamppost, he said. Kevin Pilkington, a local resident who had witnessed the whole incident, confirmed Brough’s account in court. A policeman who was responding to a call about the vehicle watched the incident unfold from about 40 metres away. He claimed Brough was already sitting in the driver’s seat and the car was stationary before it starting rolling backwards, mount the kerb and hit the lamppost. The officer arrested Brough for

Andy (left) and Gary Brough drink–driving after he failed a road–side breath test and he was subsequently charged after further breath tests yielded 74 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath (the legal limit is 35mcg/100ml). He was also charged with driving without a licence or insurance. David Maxwell, prosecuting, said the incident sounded almost like a scene from a Laurel and Hardy film. He suggested that Brough had been in such an ‘alcoholic fog’ after a ‘mighty’ drinking session that he didn’t

really know what had happened. Brough had admitted drinking 10 cans of cider and quarter of a 33cl bottle of vodka since the previous midnight. Rory McCormack, defending, said the legal definition of driving generally meant either ‘initiating the propulsion’ of a vehicle and/or ‘controlling its subsequent movement’ so Brough was not therefore driving the car. Finding him not guilty, magistrates said they were not satisfied that he could be said to have been driving the vehicle. Speaking after a trial, Andrew’s father, Gary, said that the changes to Legal Aid may put more innocent young people at risk of getting a criminal record if they can’t afford legal representation. He went on to add: “A conviction would have done my lad an injustice for the rest of his days. He would not have been able to drive for many years as he simply would not have been able to afford the insurance after a drink driving offence. “Andrew might also have lost his job.”

TWO new bus shelters have been installed in Churchtown... much to the delight of campaigning Southport Party members. Twelve months ago they contacted Merseytravel requesting they provide two bus shelters at the busy Bankfield Lane stops that serve Churchtown Village and Botanic Gardens. Jacqueline Barlow said: “Merseytravel agreed with us that shelters would be of great benefit to bus users including a large proportion of young families, the elderly and disadvantaged who regularly visit the free to enter gardens. “We pointed out that the shelters would not only

Jacqueline Barlow outside one of the new shelters provide comfort but also encourage more travellers to make use of the excellent public transport service to unique Churchtown village and all its delights. “The shelters have now been installed as promised, and we thank Merseytravel for heeding and acting on our concerns.”

Nine in court for dropping cig ends in street

CHAMPION Newspapers Chief Executive Betty Drummond was a guest speaker at the recent Rotary Club International District Conference in Southport. The District 1180 conference, which took place over the weekend of Friday, October 31 and Saturday, November 1, at the resort’s Floral Hall, comprised of club representatives from North and Mid Wales, Shropshire, Wirral, Merseyside and West Lancashire with District Governor Les Wilson from Maghull and Aughton Club taking charge of the evening. Les told The Champion: “The conference commenced with a Halloween themed party and 120 revellers had a great night with entertainment provided by the ‘Tic–Toc’ singers from the Ormskirk Clocktower Club. “Saturday saw the business part of the conference conducted during the day with many and varied speakers addressing over 250 members, covering a cross section of Rotary projects across a wide spectrum both internally, locally and the extended Rotary family, from Rota kids to the Satelite programme. “The fantastic array of speakers travelled from far and wide and the afternoon session commenced with Betty Drummond who deftly demonstrated how a provincial paper can be successful in the 21st century. “The highlight of the day was Dame Lorna Muirhead, The Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside and closing speaker Geoff Mackey. “The Saturday night Gala Dinner was well attended by Rotarians, family and friends, with entertainment by singer David Marshall.”

A TWENTY four year old man has admitted raping a teenage girl in a Southport churchyard. Adam Riding had been due to face trial at Liverpool Crown Court this week (Monday, November 10) having denied three rape offences and one of robbery but at the last minute he changed two of his pleas. He pleaded guilty to twice raping the 17–year–old on May 17 this year and the other two charges are to be dropped. The incident took place on around 5 am in a churchyard near Lord Street and came to light after the victim stopped two members of the public for help. Sentence was adjourned until December 1 to enable a pre–sentence report to be prepared. His lawyer, Paul Lewis, told Judge Denis Watson, QC, that Riding pleaded guilty on a “full fact basis.” He said that there was “clear evince of the parties kissing beforehand and in the immediate run–up to these offences. That is the extent of the consensual sexual contact.” Henry Riding, prosecuting, said that in accepting the pleas the Crown Prosecution Service had taken a pragmatic view to spare the victim giving evidence. Judge Watson further remanded Riding, of no fixed address, in custody to await sentence and he made an interim Sex Offenders Register order.

Souper helpers! A GROUP of young people in Southport have dedicated the past few weeks to raising money for the town’s Soup Kitchen. The Soup Kitchen, which has been in operation for 12 years, is based in London Street and staff often rely on charitable support and funding to continue their work to help the needy. ’Team Evolution’ who are part of a nationwide scheme

run by the National Citizen Service, enables teenagers from across the UK to complete voluntary work within their community. Pete Christian, NCS Team leader for Southport, said: “The team have a relatively small amount of time to complete various challenges for their chosen charity. “Their aims are to improve the community awareness of the problems of poverty

within our communities, to involve themselves in work to improve the facilities and to raise money to be used to purchase food and allow this organisation to continue. “A number of fundraising activities will be undertaken by the team during the next three weeks with bucket collections, sponsored events, bag packing and re–decorating the soup kitchen.

NINE people appeared before magistrates after they were caught dropping their cigarette ends in the street. Between them, they were made to pay more than £300 each in fines and court costs. Following the hearings, Sefton Council chiefs said the fines demonstrated their ongoing commitment to stubbing out litter–bugging. A 12–month anti–litter campaign, launched in June, has seen the commissioning of camera–equipped environmental officers onto the streets of Sefton, armed with the power to issue fixed penalties to residents who drop their rubbish on the street or fail to pick up dog mess. A £75 fixed penalty is reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days, but results in a court summons if not paid at all and a further opportunity to pay £125 is also ignored. Nine offenders, six of them Sefton residents and each of whom were caught dropping cigarette ends on the floor at various locations across the borough, received a summons to appear at Sefton Magistrates Court on November 5, having failed to pay the fixed penalty. Except for one 19–year–old who pleaded guilty by post, all of the offenders’ cases were proved in absence and each of them were subsequently fined £150 and ordered to pay £162 in costs and victim surcharge. Prosecutor Jane Beatty said that littering is consistently one of the main concerns of Sefton residents. The council spends £3m a year on cleaning the streets, she said, and has provided 1,300 bins. By pursuing these prosecutions Sefton Council is providing a ‘robust approach’ to dealing with offenders who choose to litter the streets of Sefton, she said.

Town’s finest Ambassadors! by Ollie Cowan THE BEST of the best in Southport turned out last week for an evening of glitz and glamour for the annual Resort Ambassador Awards. Hundreds of people from across the retail, tourism, leisure and hospitality industry in Southport came together at the awards on Thursday evening (November 6) at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre. The annual ceremony is designed to recognise the service and commitment various people or businesses give to the resort in their line of work. First award of the night went to Robertos Italian Restaurant’s Stefania Yates–Cinti who was commended by judges for her hard work and excellent customer service as the town’s Young Person of the Year. Pheobe Chester of the Sandgrounder Pub then took the plaudits as the Best Bartender. Lisa Little was delighted to claim the title of Receptionist of the Year for her work behind the front desk of the Ramada Hotel. Retail Assistant of the Year was such a tough category for the judges to pick from that they eventually went for two winners – David Johnson of Morrisons Winter Gardens and Maria Myyers of Next on Lord street sharing the accolade. Michael Spooner was crowned Young Chef of the Year for his culinary skills at The Office. Laura Hoyles of Pudding and Pie claimed the Best Waiter/Waitress award while Madhatters Tea Pot in Ainsdale took the hotly

Arson attack at house was reckless, say police Leaders saddle up! DETECTIVES are appealing for information after a fire was started deliberately at a house in the resort in the early hours of Saturday, November 1 Officers were called to Norwood Road at around 1.30am. A man living at the house had been woken up by his dog barking. He went downstairs and found that three wheelie bins had been set on fire outside his house. The fire then spread to a caravan on the drive and

subsequently to the house itself. The outside walls were damaged and some windows were smashed but luckily no–one was injured. CCTV is being located and reviewed and an investigation into the full circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing. Detective Inspector Rob Hill, Sefton CID, said: “Whoever did this is incredibly reckless and has put an entire family’s lives at risk.

“In total, two adults and three young children were in the house at the time of the incident and it is only through sheer good fortune that none of them was injured, or even killed. “I’d like to reassure the community in Southport that incidents such as this are very rare and we are doing everything we can to bring the people responsible to justice. “Norwood Road is a very busy road and even though this happened in the early hours of

Saturday, it’s likely that people were still on their way home from Halloween events or nights out. “I’d appeal to anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in the area, or has any information whatsoever about this fire, to get in touch with us as soon as possible.” Anyone with information can call detectives in Sefton CID on 0151 777 3011 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

A HOMELESS man has been jailed for a sex assault on a teenage girl which magistrates said must have been ‘terrifying.’ The 16–year–old girl was walking with friends on Chapel Street when John Battersby, 46, of no–fixed–abode, deliberately walked into her, pushed into her body and rubbed her breast towards her shoulder. Lionel Cope, prosecuting, said that as he passed, the girl turned around to look at him and he smiled back at her. “I could not understand why he walked into me,” he said she later told police, “The street was quiet and he had plenty of space to walk around me. I then suddenly realised that this male had touched me and that it was wrong.” The girl then went on to see him down a side street make sexual gestures with his hand, Mr Cope said, following which she went to seek assistance from staff at the train station and he was

Joe Craig, Rowan Berry, Guiseppe Maione, and Toby Sherriff have passed the WACA mountain bike course

subsequently arrested. Battersby pleaded guilty to sexual assault on the day of his trial, the court heard, when he was ordered to sign on the Sex Offender’s Register. He had since then failed to attend court in September and failed to comply with the notification of address requirements of the Sex Offender’s Register. He appeared at the court for sentencing following a probation report. Solicitor Joseph Cheminais said that Battersby accepted it was a very unsavoury incident. “He is a gentleman who has had a number of difficulties for a lengthy period of time,” he said. “There have been periods when he has been living on the streets.” It was emphasised that there was no grooming or pre–planning of the offence, and that by pleading guilty he saved the girl the ordeal of recounting the incident. Jailing him for 18 weeks magistrates said it must have been terrifying for that young girl.

THE WOODVALE and Ainsdale Community Association have helped five youngsters train in mountain bike leadership. The national cycling charity accredited Young Leaders Mountain Bike scheme saw the group attend a rigorous two day course tutored by fully qualified instructors. The training took place at Cheshire Lines and at Llandegla in North Wales, and covered a wide range of topics such as bike skills, navigation, group management and leadership. Davina Suthren, Community Development Manager, said: “These newly accredited young people will now be able to work with the qualified instructors at the WACA Mountain Bike Club. WACA will be running another ‘Young Leaders Mountain Bike’ course in 2015.

Charity event at store SAINSBURY’S on Lord Street will hold an in–store stall and raffle packed with festive gifts and goodies to raise funds for Ainsdale Community Care. Brenda Porter, Ainsdale Community Care Trust Chairman, said: “The event will be held on Saturday, November 15. Information on all the services provided by the charity including its home delivery hot meal service will be available on the day. “The event starts at 10am.”

Tidal lagoon for resort is a real possibility, says MP ‘Town could become trailblazer for Green Energy’ Ollie Cowan

SOUTHPORT could become a trailblazer for Green Energy if plans for building a tidal lagoon out to sea proceed. Resort MP John Pugh has given his backing to the potential plan after meeting with advisers to the Secretary of State for Energy to discuss the practicalities and benefits of such a plan. The Champion revealed in September that Southport’s coastline could soon follow in the footsteps of Swansea after a green energy giant revealed they have targeted the resort as a potential site for a tidal energy lagoon. Tidal Lagoon Power Ltd, the firm responsible for the £850 million, six mile long seawall lagoon in the Welsh city have identified Southport as one of a number of potential sites for a similar project due to a combination of requisite high tides and a shallow sea bed. The sea wall would begin at Ainsdale beach and head out to sea before circling back to the former Rainfords sand extraction plant in Marshside. Permanently submerged hydro turbines mounted inside the new sea wall generate power from rising tidal waves. All anybody will be able to see is a ring–shaped harbour wall. MP John Pugh told the Championthis week: “I was surprised how far plans have progressed on tidal schemes.

“There’s a real drive in government to make it happen, especially as it is not quite as divisive an issue as wind farms. “Tidal lagoons can look beautiful, the engineering is straightforward and the energy generated does not fluctuate with the weather. “The government is seeking to use the planned lagoon at Swansea as a test bed. “Southport could be in the pipeline if we plan now. “It could be a unique tourist attraction and bring the sea back to the seaside. “By a fluke of nature we have the best tidal range in Europe and the biggest potential with the capacity to meet 5% of our energy needs from tidal power. “My understanding is that Sefton have already met with tidal power firms to discuss possibilities and subject to success with the Swansea scheme a tidal lagoon in Southport could be a real runner.”

Fragoff wasting Don’t stand public money to save costs That Fragoff group will cause more than £5,000 of public money to be spent by forcing a parish council by–election shows that they really have no clue about Formby. The parish council has very little money and can ill afford the cost. They could have applied to be co–opted and saved us all the bother. ragoff have shown a serious lack of judgement and that they are more interested in themselves than in the people of Formby.

It is wrong for other politicians to blame Fragoff for initiating a by–election for Formby Parish Council. If they don’t want the expense that such an election will cost, they have a simple remedy – not to put up their own candidate. If no one else stands against the Fragoff nominee then there will be no need for an expensive election. The choice is theirs.

Salvation Army shop provides a vital need for many people

PICTURE of the week

Re: Salvation Army charity shop article (Champion, October 29). My wife and I have had voluntary association with The Salvation Army charity shop in Shakespeare Street for many years. The person drew your attention to an item of furniture which he felt was overpriced. The article did not state that the same piece of furniture could well have been delivered free of charge to a deserving person who was in great need. They may have been recommended and verified by one of the various social bodies who call every week on the Salvation Army for help. Most other charity shops are unable to do this because their sale of goods is to support that particular charity, be it the Red Cross, a hospice, research into cancer or other worthy causes. Bargaining was mentioned but this is

not regular practice and volunteers are forbidden to accept other than the required marked price without reference to a senior member of staff. The shop has clothing rails full of men’s shirts, ladies jumpers etc with prices starting from £1 and new tief for 50p. Where else in Southport could they have got better bargains? People need to consider the overall picture of a shop where many people with limited finance worries, do their shopping every week. They leave relieved their needs have been met as they have paid bargain prices. I invite Mr and Mrs Public to come and see the Salvation Army charity shop and check for themselves.

www.champnews.com/pixonline Not anti–Semitic

to criticise Israel Re: letters about the allegedly anti–Semitic art comment at the Atkinson. It irks me that any criticism of Israel is assumed to be a denigration of Jews and condemned as anti–Semitic. This is as silly as saying every criticism of Barack Obama is racist because he is black. The piece of art is not necessarily anti–Semitic (and probably isn’t) because it is a criticism of Israeli government policy, not of Jews or Judaism. We must remember that Israel is a country populated not only by Jews but also peoples of other faiths, cultures and ethnic groups. Therefore, it is very wrong to assume every criticism of Israel or its government policies is anti–Semitic, especially since many Jews also criticise their own government’s policies, not least that towards Arabs!

Sad to glorify Find something pleasant scary side of life to parade before children

Thumbs up for the village park volunteers

I would like to express my whole hearted agreement with John Marshall’s letter (Halloween Parade Just Glorifies the Dark and Scary.) I think it’s really sad that this lovely town has lost it’s Christmas Parade and gained an event “glorifying the dark, creepy and scary side of life.”

Thumbs up and a big thank you to the Friends of Ainsdale Village Park who volunteer their time to keep the park in good order. Especially to the lady and gentleman who were planting spring bulbs two weeks ago when I visited the park with my grandchildren. During my short conversation with them I mentioned the

uplifting to organise next year. Also, Mr Halliwell’s comments are worth noting, while Southport continues to have outrageous charges for parking people will go elsewhere and this will lead to a dying town centre. Peter Day, By email

Vision project will cost council £50,000 SEFTON Council will spend £50,000 on the ‘Southport Vision’ Project which aims to save and ultimately rejuvenate the town centre. The Buisness Improvement District (BID) and Sefton Council announced last week they have commissioned a town planning consultancy firm to help transform the fortunes of the resort – at a cost of a one off sum of £50,000 from the authority’s Capital Priorities Fund. Nexus Planning has been charged with setting out a clear vision for the town, and to identify the redevelopment options for a number of key sites. Many of the sites have previously attracted interest but have stalled, including Marine Drive and Tulketh Street. Nexus bosses say their brief is to unlock the potential of these sites and establish a strategy ‘conducive to attracting private sector investment into the town.’ Nexus Planning will be supported by Broadway Malyan who it is said will bring a wealth of architectural experience to the project. Property and development agents Aspinal Verdi, Visitor Economy experts Amion Consulting while JMP Consultants will look at the transport issues. The appointment follows a detailed procurement exercise by Sefton Council who are funding the strategy; the work will be overseen by both Sefton Council in partnership with BID. The strategy will consider key issues such as infrastructure needs, economic challenges, public space, branding and events, the development of key vacant sites and how new development can be integrated into the existing surroundings. It will also allow stakeholders to have a real say on the future of Southport and by working closely with the BID, it will ensure the strategy has valuable input from the local business community. Cllr Ian Maher, Sefton’s Cabinet Member Regeneration and Tourism, said: “The strategy will help bring together the council’s and BID’s ambitions for the popular resort now and for the future. “Throughout the process we will work closely with the BID team and continue to talk to stakeholders and businesses to help develop the strategy.”

Bulldozers move in to demolish former high school Councillor slams work as ‘obscene’ Report by

Ollie Cowan

Work starts at the former school Ainsdale library down stating it can’t afford ÂŁ30,000 to run our much loved library. â€?But with clinical efficiency a fund can be found that is allocated to demolish schools! “At every opportunity my efforts to re–energise the area have been scuppered.â€? “We have a fantastic sports field that organised junior sports clubs cannot play on. “The aim, looking at the planning proposals is to build on the site post 2017 – ten years after the school closed which is the legal minimum time allowed. “I believe it’s absurd to knock down facilities that still have some life in them. Site workers will have to take extra care when demolishing the building however – as there is a high concentration of methane gas underneath the site, one of the reasons why the school had to be built on stilts.

CONTRACTORS have begun demolishing the former Ainsdale Hope High School. Bulldozers and diggers are tearing down the school’s sports hall and dining block to free up land which could potentially be used in Sefton Council’s Local Plan for housing. A total of ÂŁ186,000 has been allocated for the work from the The Local Authority’s Closed Schools Reserve Account to tear down part of the defunct school which closed its doors for the final time in May 2007. Council chiefs hope to allow building of 1,000 new homes around Ainsdale as part of the Local Plan – and this includes a potential 200 homes on the land occupied by Ainsdale High. Ainsdale Coucillor Haydn Preece, has long opposed the demolition and told The Champion that the process is ‘obscene.’ Councillor Preece said: “I have publicly stated since 2010 that a hidden agenda existed to build on the land. “This is at a time when our council closes

A WELL known car showroom has finally closed down ahead of the site being transformed into two retail premises and a petrol station. Sefton Council have already approved planning permission for the former Duerdens Car Showroom on Roe Lane, Southport, to be turned into a Spar convenience store, a sandwich outlet and a petrol station. The remaining cars, fixtures and fittings were removed at the beginning of November ahead of contractors moving in, however a date has yet to be set for work to start. James Hall Spar submitted the application to the council earlier this year but it was reported at the time that the Duerdens would remain open for the foreseeable future. A spokesperson for James Hall said: “The proposal is for part demolition and alterations of, extensions to and conversion of a car sales showroom and car service and repairs building, to form two retail units and erection of petrol filling station canopy and installation of pumps. “Externally, the building will be faced with red brickwork and extensive glazing to the shop front. Internally, the reconfigured building would provide a convenience store, fuel sales unit and an attached retail unit which is expected to be occupied by a sandwich outlet. “The store catchment would primarily be the immediate residential neighbourhood. The

Duerdens Vauxhall car sales store would provide that community with increased choice within a convenient walking distance of their homes. “The very nature of the convenience store is such that it offers a limited range of everyday goods including fresh produce, ambient range, alcohol, tobacco and confectionery, rather than a full range of goods that might be found in supermarkets and larger centres. “The convenience store will also cater for some passing trade, particularly associated with those calling for fuel on a route in and out of Southport. A Sefton Council statement reads: ”Approval has been granted for the development to convert the former Duerdens car sales showroom after partial demolition of the existing buildings. “No part of the development shall be brought into use until the redundant vehicular and pedestrian accesses on to Hartwood Road and Roe Lane have been permanently closed off and the footway reinstated.”

New Veterinary centre in Southport Pet owners in the Southport, Ormskirk and Formby areas have a new veterinary surgery. Clients registering in 2014 will be able to benefit from some very special discounted prices. Consultations with the vet are only £10 until the end of the year and senior pets are eligible for a free healthcheck.

Myerscough Veterinary Group has refurbished premises next to the RSPCA animal sanctuary on New Cut Lane, Birkdale to provide a new, bright and spacious facility for pets and their owners. “We are delighted with our new centre”, says Rosemary Duckworth, Director, “the surgery provides a welcoming environment, with a comfortable waiting room and well equipped consulting facilities.” A brand new computer system manages client records and appointment books and is linked through to the 24 hour accident and emergency centre on the A59 just outside Blackburn, where trained staff are on site day and night to care for inpatients and respond to emergencies.

The practice’s own vets provide round the clock advice and treatment. The vet based at the new branch is Mr Anthony Dennison BVSc MRCVS, who graduated from Bristol University and has an interest in internal medicine, especially neurology. “I am really looking forward to meeting and caring for the pets in the area” says Anthony, “The facilities here are fantastic, including an ultrasound scanner, operating theatre, separate cat and dog wards and in-house laboratory facilities.” Anthony works closely with veterinary receptionist Paula Pratt and registered veterinary nurse Clare Redmond. “The new branch is very smart and I hope that clients will enjoy the experience and the personal service we offer” commented Paula. “The surgery is open 5 days a week for appointments, and 6 days a week for pet products, medicines and food. We also have late appointments until 8pm every Monday. All consultations with the vet are by appointment. I hope that anyone interested in knowing more about our service will pop in or call me at the branch on 01704 461884.” Myerscough Veterinary Group chose the premises at New Cut Lane for a new branch because of its link with the RSPCA Shelter and the easy parking outside. Director Chris Myerscough comments “There is always room to park outside the new surgery. In our experience pet owners appreciate a local service. We also believe that clients prefer to see the same staff in their local surgery and are delighted that we have an excellent team to work in Southport”. ■ For press information or enquiries call Rosemary Duckworth, Director, on 07774 418767 or email rosemaryduckworth@myvets.co.uk Myerscough Veterinary Group is the trading name of My Vet Ltd.

Hedgehog winter plea A GUIDE has been issued to help people play their part in keeping hedgehogs safe this winter. THE People’s Trust for Endangered Species and British Hedgehog Preservation Society have together produced a free guide of 10 tips to make your gardens hedgehog–friendly and help this small British mammal which is in decline. Gardens and urban green spaces provide a vital habitat for hedgehogs to live in, but their numbers have fallen by more than a third over the last 10 years.

Eco Centre staff help residents be flood ready! A NEW website to help people prepare for potential flooding has been created with the help of Sefton Council. Launched this week, www.floodready.co.uk was developed by staff at the Southport Eco Centre and Seftons’ Flood and Coastal Erosion team, with support from the Environment Agency. It was funded by the North West Regional Flooding and Coastal Committee. The online resource features interactive animations, case studies from the North West region and a wealth of supporting activities and resources to help people be “Flood Ready” and become more resilient to future flooding events. The case studies not only feature flooding events, but highlight good examples of community engagement and flood risk management schemes. Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Environment, said: “While we work very hard with our partners both locally and regionally to minimise

flood risk, it remains an issue that affects many areas throughout the North West. “Being properly prepared for any emergency situation can significantly reduce the impact if, and when, a serious incident occurs. I am very pleased that staff at our Eco Centre have played a key part in building this new resource for residents across the region.” Cllr Derek Antrobus, Chair of the North West Regional Flooding and Coastal Committee, said: “The North West is likely to get wetter over the next few decades. It is important that we not only invest in managing future flood risk, but also make sure that communities and future generations have the knowledge and understanding to tackle the threats of the future. “The online tool means everyone has a resource to develop a good understanding of how to protect ourselves.” ollie.cowan@champnews.com

Much loved musical to return for charity fundraiser ONE of Liverpool’s best loved musicals, Twopence To Cross The Mersey, will return to Southport next year in order to raise funds for the local North West Cancer Research Charity. Helen Forrester’s famous account of how

she and her formerly wealthy family had to struggle to survive in Liverpool during the Great Depression of the 1930s will be brought to life at Southport Theatre from April 9 to April 11, 2015. Stage writer and producer, Rob Fennah,

together with co–producer, Bill Elms have announced that North West Cancer Research which facilitates cancer research across the region will be the show’s charity partner. Collections for NWCR will take place at

each of the performances. On top of this, 50 per cent of ticket sales from the show’s premiere on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 will be donated to North West Cancer Research, who have an active branch in the resort.

Franchise show is just the job Merseyside Franchise Show

Apprentice ntice TV star Neil Clough at the Franchise Show ... Neil Clough is guest speaker at the Merseyside Franchise Show and will be launching his new franchised business – My Travel Pal – at the event.

Saturday 22 November

The free event runs on Saturday 22 November and Neil’s seminar starts at 11am. He will give a presentation & motivational talk about becoming self employed - describing what he learnt from Alan Sugar, Nick Hewer and Karren Brady in how to go about starting your own business.

Jobs fair ‘with a difference’ at Aintree next week features self employed part and full time franchises for sale...

The free exhibition at Aintree features over 30 business franchise opportunities for sale and will interest those looking for a new, self employed career.

Franchising is a business format that mixes elements of both employment and self employment. Individuals can buy into a nationally branded business, receive full training and a stepby-step manual of how to run that particular business model. Plus, there’s permanent back up of a head office team (and countless other franchisees in other cities) who have refined the business model over years to help out.

It’s not often in an era of job cutbacks, wages freezes and general business belt tightening that you’ll see an exhibition where companies are clamouring to attract new workers. But that’s exactly what will be going on Aintree Racecourse on Saturday 22 November when it’s hosting a major Franchise recruitment event. 33+ franchised brands are exhibiting. All are hoping to set up a branch of their business in & around Merseyside & West Lancashire - and all want to meet anyone who is looking for a career change and will consider a move into a self employment.

and additional income stream by setting up their own little business. Investing in a franchise licence might lack the glamour & risk associated with a normal new startup business – instead Franchises are the established, proven, tried-and-tested, “steady eddies” of the business world with most having multiple branches in other cities already successfully up-and-running’

Exhibition organiser Mark Monument says:

So, those who are keen on researching self employment are invited to attend the free exhibition. Mark Monument summarises:

‘The free exhibition gives jobseekers a chance to sculpt their own flexible career

‘There’s a wide array of full & part time options exhibiting. Some require a very low

investment...while others need significant financial input. In all cases, since the franchise owner trains you in how to run their business, visitors needn’t feel restricted to working in an industry that they already know. You can retrain as a sports coach or set up a theatre school. Clean beer lines or clean houses. Run a coffee shop or run a lettings agency.... there’s those plus thirty other business ideas to find in the hall too’ Entry to the exhibition is free - though fast track pre registration can be booked online. Exhibition is open 9.30am – 4pm on Saturday 22 November in the Golden Miller Suite, Aintree Racecourse.

‘Redundancy was the start of running my own business … Bedfordshire, plus was given full product training, marketing ideas & tools to launch his business and find local users for his service. Now nearly two years in, business is going well. “I was a reluctant person to enter self employment. But, simply, I needed to find work and it was tough just to get an interview. Buying a franchise has ended up being a great new career though. Redundancy was the start of running my own business. And I’d fully recommend franchising as a

Those with an avid interest in sport are being invited to look at several sports franchise opportunities for sale at the Aintree franchise event next Saturday. Amongst the three exhibitors in the sports category are ‘Sports Plus Scheme’ (SPS) – a coaching and physical activity franchise that might just provide that perfect combination of hobby and career aspiration. SPS has a proven track record in business - and a high earning potential. New franchisees are given the all of the know-how and resources needed to make their business a success delivering up to 50 different sports, including football, gymnastics and dance the training ensures the franchisee will be equipped to deliver the highest quality lessons. Multiple revenue streams, low set up costs and high-end profit margins, the SPS Franchise can provide a very lucrative and enjoyable business. Those interested can meet SPS on stand 14 at the Merseyside Franchise Show.

Mums Mean Business talk @ 10am Before Neil speaks, entrepreneurial mums are being invited to a free morning franchise talk on Saturday 22 November taking place at Aintree Racecourse. The 10.00am session opens the Expo and features franchises and business opportunities which are particularly suitable for busy families who fancy running their own business – but also need part time or flexible working hours. Event organiser Louise Konchesky explains that the thirst for self employment is growing: “We have invited working Mums along to franchise shows in sixteen other UK cities over the last three years and it has become a real feature of our franchise events. The interest for flexible working and supplementary income with the ability to fit around school hours and school holidays seems to capture the imagination We’ve some Mum friendly / flexible hour franchises exhibiting which can help earn a supplementary income but still allow the franchisee to squeeze in family life too...plus three local enterprise support & advice groups aimed at assisting women into self employment” Kids, buggies and Dads are all welcome – plus there’s a series of other franchise talks taking place all day – full details of which can be seen online: www.merseysidefranchiseshow.co.uk

Bold is put up for sale ONE OF Lord Street’s most iconic hotels has been put up for sale. The Bold Hotel, which was first built in 1832, is listed by Christie and Co who specialise in business sales after the hotel’s owners, The Royal Bank Of Scotland, decided to sell it off. Having only recently undergone a major revamp including a brand new dining area, heated patio and function room, the Grade 2 listed property features 23 ensuite bedrooms and in recent months has had over £270,000 invested on it. A spokesperson for Christie and Co said: “This is a well renowned resort hotel businesses and is in a prominent position in a busy football area.” The Bold was originally called The Bold Arms. Its first landlord was John Halfrey, former innkeeper of the Royal Hotel which is more commonly known as The Dukes Folly – the first ever hotel to be built in Southport. Very little has actually changed from the frontage of The Bold Hotel in over 182 years aside from the colour scheme.

THE NEW Bishop of Liverpool, the Rev Paul Bayes is calling on people to get into the true festive spirit and send a personal Christmas card rather than an electronic greeting. He said: “I love social media and I use it a lot. But on its own it can be impersonal and, frankly, sometimes a bit cold. It’s important to remember human connection, because being there for one another is a basic human need. “At Christmas I believe something has been lost by the trend away from sending cards. “E–cards or a group email are OK, but they’re no substitute for a hand signed card through the letterbox. Sometimes traditional is good and it will be particularly important for me this year as I move to a new city, writing cards for those I’m leaving behind but then also delivering cards to new friends, neighbours and colleagues in Liverpool.” His call comes as Traidcraft, the UK’s leading fair trade organisation and development charity, launches Charity Christmas Card Week

The new Bishop of Liverpool, the Rev Paul Bayes from November 16 to 23. During the week, Traidcraft is calling on people to buy charity Christmas cards and send them to people in their communities – offering a double benefit this festive season. Larry Bush, Marketing Director at Traidcraft, said: “During Charity Christmas Card Week we’re encouraging people to buy an extra charity Christmas card or two and use them to reach out in their community. “So, why not write cards and deliver some of them yourself? Because it’s not just the card, but the one–to–one connection – there’s nothing better than hand–delivering a card.”

OLD BED RECYCLING SERVICE

WELL, that’s Guy Fawkes Night out of the way for another year – which means that Cinders can now accompany me and Tina on our nightly walks. To be fair all round though, this year in Maghull at least, firework celebrations seem not to have started until only a day or three away from November 5 anyway. And in fact Cinders does have a considerable tolerance to fireworks. She’s fine at first with the odd bang or two, but gets increasingly agitated if there is a prolonged barrage. Now Tina has never bothered about fireworks at all. The most interest she has ever shown was a couple of years ago when one of those pyrotechnics that go bang, fly into the air, explode and send whizzing projectiles out in all directions, was set off from a garden fairly close to where we were. She paused (briefly), looked up to see what was making the racket, obviously decided this was just another human aberration, and resumed walking. In fact, ever since she was a pup she has never been upset by bangs and explosions. Shotguns, the now very occasional backfire from a passing vehicle, bird–scarers – you name it, it can go ‘bang’ as loud and often as it likes and Tina doggedly (get it?) ignores it. So on the fifth the two of us set out for a walk around our patch, and while I enjoyed the occasional aerial display, Tina concentrated on looking out for local cats under parked motors (she sussed that one out very early in her career) and generally behaving absolutely and completely as normal. I reckon I’m very lucky with Tina in the way of unexpected street noises. She also takes lorries’ and buses’ occasional air–braked hissing at her in her stride, has no interest in the loudest heavy vehicle passing within a foot or two – in fact almost anything. Almost – because there has to be an exception. And in Tina’s case this is those really raucous motorbike exhausts which she bridles (and barks) at. I don’t know why – but that’s the marvel of a dog’s sometimes odd behaviour. Mind you, Bonfire Night is now only a poor shadow of what it was in the days of my childhood. Quite apart from the fact that most public firework displays these days no longer actually contain a bonfire, what has really changed is the almost complete demise of the family bonfire party. I suppose in this safety obsessed country this was inevitable (and indeed probably desirable) but it’s a pity none–the–less. When I was a kid we always had a bonfire in our back garden. Dad provided a pair of his work overalls (they were well soaked in printing ink and ‘thinners’ so they burned well) as Guy’s body. Mum always bought one really expensive (to our eyes at least) firework to provide a finale to the proceedings. And my brother George and I spent the two or three weeks leading up to the night spending our pocket money on lesser explosives (but definitely never setting off so much as a squib before the fifth). Then it was out into the garden, with hot drinks and parkin. And having survived this – and the sparklers too – eventually made our way back for something more genuinely tasty. Somewhat smoked and grimy, and very happy.

A PROJECT in Southport which improves the standard of coastal flood defences and makes them better adapted to meet the challenges from climate change has won a prestigious North West Award for Coastal Excellence. Hesketh Out Marsh East has had its embankment rebuilt to reduce the risk of coastal flooding to the local area. Next year, the original sea embankment will be breached, forming 1.54 square kilometres of saltmarsh. This rare and declining habitat will both provide homes for wetland wildlife and provide natural flood protection by absorbing the energy of the waves. The project builds on a similar coastal realignment at Hesketh Out Marsh West, completed in 2009. The Environment Agency – together with Natural England and the RSPB – has driven the project, which was shortlisted for the Climate Change Adaptation category of the awards. Richard Shirres from the Environment Agency said: “It’s great that we have been recognised for the amazing collaborative work at Hesketh Out Marsh East. “The project has shown that we can help to reduce the future risk of flooding to over 100 properties and farm land and benefit the local environment.” Dave Mercer from Natural England said: “Working with colleagues from other organisations on a project like this has been a fantastic learning experience. “I’ve been involved for a few years and I am very proud of the progress we have made in creating a brand new nature reserve within the Ribble Estuary, which benefits people and wildlife alike. ”

Hesketh Marshes have been given a coastal excellence award Code NA Robin Horner, RSPB Area Reserve Manager for North West England, said: “We are delighted that Hesketh Out Marsh East has won this award. Flood risk management and nature conservation are sometimes seen as mutually exclusive but this scheme shows that we can have the best of both worlds. “By building strong flood defences that will protect people’s property for many years to come, we are also providing a new home for our precious wildlife.” The RSPB was able to buy the marshland thanks to a £1million grant from WREN’s Biodiversity Action Fund Land Purchase Programme – the single largest grant made by WREN for over 10 years. The awards are managed by the North West Coastal Forum, which promotes economic, environmental and social benefits for coastal communities in North West England.

Bonita said: “The Oddfellows have been taking part in the various Southport Parade for nine years and we really enjoy being part of the vibrant resort scene. “We enjoy the great atmosphere that runs through the town during these parades and if we can tie this with raising money for local charities, so much the better.” The Oddfellows Society is run for the benefit of its members and there is a varied and interesting social calendar to suit all ages. The Monthly Coffee Mornings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 10.30am in the Royal Clifton Hotel. All are welcome to attend.

ANDRE RIEU returns to the UK in December and the Champion has three pairs of tickets to give away for his Liverpool concert. Prior to his tour, the Maastricht Maestro talked to the Champ. Said Andre: “The tour is called ‘Love in Venice’ like my new album and we will try to bring the beauty, passion and warmth of Italy to the UK with a collection of the most beautiful and romantic Italian music. “We will play some well–known melodies from Italy but also waltzes, music from film, opera and operetta. The Berlin Comedian Harmonists will join us with English songs and we have lots of international soloists from all over the world.” In a Andre Rieu concert, people are known to get up and dance and sing along, but how does Andre explain this passion? “A song has to touch my heart and then I know it will touch yours, too. When I am on stage I try to communicate with the audience and to involve them. I make jokes, I invite them to dance. “I see myself not only as a violinist, but also as a conductor and entertainer.” Andre played Liverpool last year and it’s clear he has a special affection for the UK, but does he have any favourite cities in the UK to play? “I experience a city through its audience – and all of the UK audience is fantastic. That’s why we play twelve concerts this year. We just wouldn’t know which city to miss. It’s wonderful to return.”

We’ve three pairs to give away for the Maastricht Maestro’s Liverpool concert date He added: “The British audience is very special because they have their heart open right from the start. They are ‘there.’ “It’s fantastic for any artist to play in the UK. In Japan they sit very quiet and polite and listen and then during the encores they explode. But in the UK I can feel the energy from the audience the moment I step out on stage.” Next year Andre will celebrate 40 years of marriage. Andre, known as the ‘The King of the Waltz’ plays a Stradivarius from 1732 and music is very much in the family. His father was a conductor and he would always go and see his concerts. One night, after playing Beethoven and Mahler, he conducted “By the Beautiful Blue Danube” as an encore. It was magical. I saw people smiling the whole atmosphere changed. I realised how powerful this music is. In a good waltz you always

Andre Rieu find joy and melancholy, love and sadness. It’s a mirror of life – and I see that every night before me, when the audience gets up and dance.“ Andre Rieu is at the Liverpool Echo Arena on December 12. The Champion has three pairs of tickets to give away to readers. To win a pair, just answer the following question and send your entry to: Andre Rieu Competition, The Champion, 166 Lord Street, Southport, PR9 0QA. Winners will be the first three names drawn after the competition’s closing date, November 19, 2014. Editor’s decision is final. Q. What is Andre’s new tour called?

Helping people achieve their health and fitness goals Winter is approaching and now is the perfect time to start getting into shape for Christmas and New Year, while doing the groundwork for achieving your best body for spring and summer 2015! Cheryl Lightfoot is a personal trainer with a passion for helping people achieve and maintain their health and fitness goals, with fun personalised exercise programs unique to each client, because everybody is different. Cheryl said: “The majority of people set New Year’s resolutions with good intentions to improve their health and fitness. Unfortunately statistics show that most people break their New Year’s resolutions within 3½ weeks. If you’re one of those statistics then you’ve inadvertently created a self-limiting belief of “I never stick to New Year’s Resolutions”. In addition, friends and family only strengthen that belief with tongue in cheek comments like “hmmm… let’s see how long that lasts”. This all programmes your subconscious mind to keep your existing habits on ‘auto-pilot’, and stop you from taking positive action… but you can turn this around and use this to your advantage with a little help from me. Why not make 2015 different? Create your goals and make a start now. Prove to the doubters that you mean business this time, and get your good habits well & truly established before New Year!” Exercise has many benefits, however what you may not realise is that 80% of the results you see

from any exercise programme depends on the food you eat. With all the conflicting advice out there, it’s easy to get confused about what foods are healthy. Cheryl helps clients to build weekly menus with mouth-watering recipes that they enjoy eating, with no calorie counting. Comfort foods included! Body fat melts away and stays away, when you achieve health through good nutrition and a programme of exercise that progressively challenges you. After years of research, Cheryl has developed a series of coaching programmes to provide additional support to her clients, and compliment her outstanding personal training services. These include nutrition, stress management and developing a healthy mindset. Amongst other things, she helps people overcome emotional eating, increase motivation, balance hormones naturally, increase self-confidence, and more. A fairly new member to BNI, Cheryl has found it to be a crucial step in growing her business network. Building trust with fellow BNI members has created new pathways within their extended networks, allowing Cheryl to reach more of the people who need her help with achieving their own personal transformations.

It sets out a shared vision for better health and wellbeing in the borough, along with a number of priority areas that will help the CCGs to make improvements to local services over the next five years.

MORE than 500 people filled the Floral Hall at Southport Theatre and Convention Centre on Saturday (November 8) for the annual UKIP North West Conference. Party leader Nigel Farage was unable to attend but in his absence, deputy leader, Bootle–born Paul Nuttall announced to the audience that he believes Southport is the perfect location for a UKIP MP and declared himself ‘incredibly interested’ in running for the seat which currently belongs to Lib Dem MP John Pugh. Mr Nuttall, speaking to The Champion before taking to the podium, said: “It just goes to show how much growth we have had in five years because our numbers have swelled since our national conference here. “We’ve sold 500 tickets and have footfall on top of that which is just from the North West region alone.

“We like Southport – it’s a beautiful seaside resort and Southport is a seat which I personally find quite interesting. “If you look at the demographic of Southport, UKIP do very well in seaside resorts. “UKIP, come 2015, will be a far stronger party than we are now – we have the momentum and the breakdown of the seat in Southport is interesting because there is a split between the Conservatives and the Lib Dems. “The Labour party aren’t really anywhere in this seat so I think down the line we will be having a good go at Southport’s seat.” Following his speech Paul Nuttall was given a standing ovation by the room, including Southport UKIP’s Terry Durrance who was effusive in his praise for the deputy leader. “Of course it was a disappointment that Nigel could not be here but Paul did well to give an off the cuff rousing speech.”

Hospitals’ Come Dine With Me project wins award Report by

Ollie Cowan

SOUTHPORT and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust was voted number one for quality in national awards. The Trust’s Come Dine with Me dining companion project was winner in the local improvement category of the 2014 Health Quality Improvement Partnership Awards. The project was also voted the national Gold Award winner out 25 entries, including those from NHS teaching hospitals and medical royal colleges. Come Dine with Me was launched last year following feedback from a national dementia audit. Volunteers are trained to sit with patients at mealtimes and give help to those who need it. There are now 21 companions volunteering at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals. Matron for Performance and Standards Sue Johnson who received the award with Janette Mills, Head of Audit and Effectiveness, on behalf of the Trust said: “Come Dine with Me is a deceptively simple idea but it really made an impact on the delegates who voted it gold award winner.” Angela Kelly, Interim Director of Nursing and Quality, added: “As well as helping with eating, the dining companion can chat, encourage patients to eat and help alleviate the boredom and loneliness that can be experienced while staying in hospital. “This is vital support for some patients who don’t receive any visitors and may be lonely or anxious or suffering from a form of dementia

Janette Mills and Sue Johnson receive the Gold Award from broadcaster Vivienne Parry OBE who hosted the awards or Alzheimer’s.” HQIP Chief Executive Jane Ingham said: “The HQIP Quality Improvement Awards received a record number of entries this year and standards were extremely high. We congratulate all of the winners for the excellence they have shown in their field.” Anyone interested in becoming a Come Dine with Me volunteer should contact Chris Pilkington, volunteer coordinator for the project, on 01704 704955. Training for the role is provided and volunteers must be available at meal times.

SF advertisement feature

Let’s look out for each other on the road Latest figures released by Merseytravel show cycling in Merseyside has risen for the sixth year in a row. This increase in cyclists is great news for the environment and the fitness and wellbeing of those riders but it has also led to an increase in road traffic incidents involving cyclists. A series of adverts on a theme recently promoted within Central London, then extended to five other cities, have been funded and supported by the five Merseyside Authorities and the Merseyside Road Safety Partnership. The aim of the press adverts is to raise awareness of the need for all road users to share space on the highway and be aware of others at all times.

Advice for when you’re driving 1. Look out for cyclists, especially when turning make eye contact if possible so they know you’ve seen them 2. Use your indicators - signal your intentions so that cyclists can react 3. Give cyclists plenty of space when over taking them, leaving as much room as you would give a car. If there isn’t sufficient space to pass, hold back. Remember that cyclists may need to manoeuvre suddenly if the road is poor, it’s windy or if a car door is opened 4. Always check for cyclists when you open your car door 5. Advanced stop lines allow cyclists to get to the front and increase their visibility. You must stop at the first white line reached if the lights are amber or red and allow cyclists time and space to move off when the green signal shows 6. Follow the Highway Code including ‘stop’ and ‘give way’ signs and traffic lights Advice for when you’re cycling 1. Ride positively, decisively and well clear of the kerb – look and signal to show drivers what you plan to do and make eye contact where possible so you know drivers have seen you 2. Avoid riding up the inside of large vehicles, like lorries or buses, where you might not be seen 3. Always use lights after dark or when visibility is poor 4. Wearing light coloured or reflective clothing during the day and reflective clothing and/or accessories in the dark increases your visibility 5. Follow the Highway Code including observing ‘stop’ and ‘give way’ signs and traffic lights 6. It is recommended to wear a correctly fitted cycle helmet, which is securely fastened and conforms to current regulations

You will no doubt know this well-loved pub and familiar Southport landmark - latterly it lost some of its popularity, but if you haven't paid a visit recently, you really need to do so. The outside has been given some much needed TLC, but step inside and the sensitive refurbishment has to be seen to be believed. A £300,000 investment has brought a stylish, yet welcoming look to the interior, setting it apart from its competitors. This is an ideal venue for all kinds of family celebrations including some private areas for funerals. Popular Steak Nights are Tuesday - Thursday and there is a good value Lunchtime Dining Deal with 2 courses for just £7.95. Check out the Thatch & Thistle for all the latest Sports events or join the

guys for a game of pool. The menu is full of revitalized Pub Classics, including lots of local favourites using well known and trusted suppliers within the area. The legendary Sunday Roast has made a come-back - no mushy veg here! This is proper pub food and plenty of it. The beer is expertly kept and hand-selected wines are good value for money. James Waddington, Managing Director of Inglenook Inns and Taverns, said “I believe we have created a great environment for all and that is really paying off with the comments we have received from our customers - they love the new look. The food is also doing really well, we love to rejuvenate favourite classics. There is a super sun-trap terrace for summer drinking - or those less chilly Autumn days A great all rounder for all the family!

Everyone should enjoy a Ferrari THE NATION’S best pub, I’ve long maintained, is hidden in a hamlet in a remote Cumbrian valley. It’s 15 miles from the nearest train station and the bus service is next to non–existent, so the only way you can realistically reach it is by bringing a designated driver who’ll happily ferry you home afterwards. Practically it’s pretty much useless, but the tipple is tasty and the location alone means it’ll only ever be an occasional indulgence. In other words, it’s a bit like the first Ferrari I’ve been fortunate to get a go in. Even for someone who writes about and drives all sorts of cars, taking the helm of Maranello’s finest is something I’ve spent years longing to do. So far I’ve managed to bag the keys to a Lotus, a Jaguar, an Aston Martin and a Rolls–Royce, but until now people have always been too sensible to allow me access to a Ferrari.

Better still, it wasn’t some tired old Mondial that’s overdue its next service or a 400 that’s missed a decade’s worth of TLC; the Ferrari in question was the F355, which the motoring mags in period always praised as being as being the company’s return to form after the dud that was the old 348. A 1997 F355 GTS which had been meticulously maintained 360 days of the year, just those five days when it’s deemed sensible to take it out for a blast. The weird thing was that, even as a hugely expensive mid–engined supercar, it was no harder to drive in the real world than the Nissan Note I’d been piloting a few hours earlier. Of course the only way to treat a F355 is the way Ferrari intended. Plonk your right foot into the carpet on the wrong day (which in Cameron’s Britain, is pretty much every day) and you’ll either end up heading backwards

into the nearest hedge at high speed or looking at your shoes in the nearest police station. But on the right day the howling 3.5 litre V8 and the electronic dampers join forces, doing magical things you previously didn’t think were possible in a car. It is, like my favourite pub, something best enjoyed on a handful of occasions. To answer

CENTRAL CABS SOUTHPORT THE BETTER CAB COMPANY - PROMPT & RELIABLE

Brabin hails effort as Port hold out for FA Cup replay Report by

Dagenham & Redbridge 0 Southport 0

Brodie coaching the Southport College team.

Brodie: I want to give something back to the club and the town “I FEEL totally settled at Southport and I hope to be here a long time.” So spoke Southport’s leading goalscorer, the enigmatic Richard Brodie, who has turned from villain to hero in the four months since I invited him round for lunch to talk about his career at Southport FC. But it isn’t just the football club alone that has endeared itself to him. “I love the town itself. I like playing golf and what better place to be for that. Mitch, Brett Harris and the Gaffer are all keen golfers. “I’ve played at the municipal golf course and at Formby Hall where my girlfriend, Michelle, works. “Everyone has been very friendly and made me very welcome in Southport and I want to do my bit to give something back.” For Brodie, this means helping in the club’s community programme. He is manager, coach and mentor for the Southport College team, who play in the English College League at JMO Sports Park at Skelmersdale, and he is also the community coach at St Philip’s primary school in Southport. “When my playing days are over, I want to go into management. I am 27 years old now and ready to start doing my coaching badges.” His combative style has brought him a lot of bookings and controversy over the years. “I know I’m a marked man

improve myself in every aspect. “I’m really proud to be part of the team here at Southport. Everyone at the club has been really good to me, the chairman, directors and all the staff and the fans have got behind me. “I’ve tasted league football with Morecambe and I’d like to get back into the Football League and I hope I can do that with Southport. “All the lads feel we have something exciting going for us under Brabs. He has taught us to play without fear. “After 90 minutes against Tamworth last week, we were 100% confident we’d win that match, ten men or not. And they were more tired than we were at the end, which is why they missed the penalties. It just goes to show how fit our lads are.” Richard Brodie’s attitude typifies the new spirit that surrounds the club. Maybe he will eventually become one of the club’s long serving legends, joining Trevor Hitchen, Eric Redrobe, Alex Russell, Colin Alty et al on that distinguished roll of honour. After the reception he had when he first came to Southport, when he got a red card playing for Grimsby, wouldn’t that be a turn up?

SOUTHPORT ensured they entered the draw for the second round of the FA Cup after they held League Two strugglers, Dagenham and Redbridge, to a 0–0 draw on Saturday. The replay has been provisionally arranged for Tuesday, November 18 at the Merseyrail Community Stadium but this may be changed if the match is televised. With Richard Brodie, Luke George and Dom Collins restored to the side, The Sandgrounders fought valiantly throughout to deny the opposition in an uninspiring match. Urged on by 172 enthusiastic supporters who made the long trip down to Essex, Brodie had the best efforts on goal for Port with a header tipped over the bar by Mark Cousins in the 11th minute, a 20–yard volley before the interval which sailed just wide and a header from Paul Rutherford’s cross which Cousins did well to scramble clear. The Daggers made several chances themselves but lacked any decent finish and Raya Martin dealt easily with the few efforts that came his way. Port manager Gary Brabin praised his team for a good professional performance. He said: “It’s what we’ve been working on since I’ve been here. “It will give the lads belief going forward and the longer the game went on I felt we could have got the winner. You couldn’t tell the

Gary Brabin. difference between the league side and us. “We defended well, passed well and created chances.” The Yellows have dropped to 18th position after Altrincham’s win at Lincoln City but they have every chance to improve their position when they visit 21st placed Dartford on Saturday. Three points in this match, plus a win at next to bottom Nuneaton the following week could prove vital in lifting the club firmly out of the relegation area. • Bookings are now being taken for the Trust in Yellow coach to Southport’s away match at Nuneaton Town next Saturday, November 22. The coach leaves Haig Avenue, at 11am, with a fare of £20 members, £25 non–members if paid in advance. To book, call Alan Scarisbrick on 07980 911693 or visit the Trust office next midweek.

Report by

Ron Ellis

SOUTHPORT have been drawn at home against fellow Conference side Eastleigh in the second round of the FA Cup, but first they have to win their replay against Dagenham & Redbridge at the Merseyrail Community Stadium next Tuesday. Eastleigh are currently eighth in the table and beat The Sandgrounders 2–1 at the Silverlake Stadium in September but the team under Gary Brabin have improved greatly since then,

making this a match that is eminently winnable which could, dare we say it, lead to that long yearned for third round glamour tie against a Premiership club. Manager Gary Brabin said he was concentrating on the forthcoming league fixtures. He said: “I’m glad it’s a home draw but I can’t get excited yet. “I am totally focussed on the game on Saturday. We need to build up points to move away from the bottom section of the league.” Tuesday night’s replay won’t be easy, coming two days after the

490–mile round journey to Dartford, but the manager wasn’t worried. Brabin said: “It’s a long trip but the chairman is doing things the right way with these away games. “We are moving in the right direction and the lads are improving week by week. “They are an honest bunch and we are now in the position where we have a big say in our own destiny. “What we must do is keep our focus on winning games and building up the points.” editorial@champnews.com

A Champion Christmas! try it out. You may never feel the same again about the most festive of seasons! PS: We haven't forgotten that Christmas for some people can be a difficult time and that the 25th December can underline loneliness as no other day in the year can. We have included a section of local help available all over the Christmas season.

1134618

Do you like Christmas? Yes? No? Either way, ultimately this is the one season you have little chance of ignoring, that is for sure. Every store or organisation has suggestions galore for the 'perfect Christmas' by way of leaflets, flyers and assorted magazines. Sadly, most of the ideas available seem not to take into account that most of us do not have time to make their own decorations out of oranges and kumquats or have unlimited budgets that would sink a small country at our disposal. We at the Champion wanted to offer you something different this year. And here it is. A Champion Christmas is your local guide packed with locally sourced ideas, all readily available and mostly all a little more original. It may be that over the years you have done your Christmas shopping in one go at some soulless shopping centre. Are you sure that is your better option? Christmas is always associated with stress somehow but in reality, we create our very own stress. Spending two hours looking for a space for your car (after two hours queueing on the motorway) and then walking 20 miles over the next six hours spending last month's pay packet with hundreds of equally frazzled shoppers and inane music piped at full volume above your head is paramount to insanity. No wonder most of us think “we don't like Christmas!” Why not try something a little different this year? Before you sacrifice a couple of weekends (and good will to all men while you're at it), why not try to shop locally. You will be surprised. Because you will be able to pick up a few items at a time, spending far less as you will select things more carefully and you will experience less hassle, resulting in a happier experience. Simple... All the suggestions, countdowns and plans endlessly printed in papers and freebies at this time of year urge you to have a system... And they're right! Only this year make your plan a local one. Start early and relax into it. Discover what's inside our Champion Christmas and

(*Table only)

Are you a traditionalist? Or a minimalist? Or do you hang every paper ornament your children have ever made over the years (even though they are now 18)... Either way, most folk will agree it is not Christmas until the house looks its best. If you have been considering replacing that tired looking settee or the battered old dining table, then this is a good time of year for an update. Local furniture, hardware and interior design shops have some great sales and deals available before Christmas. Pay them a visit and see what they can offer you. Once you have your furniture in place, start with a thorough clean because once those baubles are up it could be weeks before you can properly 'attack' dust again. Then be methodical. Start with the tree. If using lights, try them out first. Then, if using multiple sets, rather than go around, drape them in lines starting from the top and finishing each set near the bottom in parallel lines. This method ensures even coverage and 'no holes'. Then go have fun and wait for the big day to arrive. The house is beautifully kitted out, everything looks sensational. Oh! Oh! Christmas day arrives and so are your guests and the first thing they see is the outside of the house. Those few lights are not disguising that the garden is looking oh! so sad. A simple tweak here and there can change everything. Your local garden centre will have some real trees available that you may be able to use and will look very effective. They don't need to be the most expensive ones,

Creating a Home in your own style

just ask for advice. Or how about contacting a local maintenance firm or gardener the week before Christmas to come and have a simple tidy. A few outside decorations can also make the difference. It needn't cost the earth but you won't believe how good things can be made to look after a clean up. Keeping it simple is generally the way to go. Traditional or modern, your Christmas table will be where you spend a lot of time on Christmas day. Most magazines would like you to believe that 'all new' is the way to go but we, at The Champion, are a little more realistic. Try to think of a linking theme using your normal plates and cutlery, such as 'forest green', just create a centrepiece of cones and a green wreath sitting on a small circular mirror. A few smaller cones strewn here and there and a handful of sparkling table confetti will make a big impression for very little effort and money. You could also stud a few satsumas with cloves and use the same idea. Just keep it simple but whatever you do make sure everything is sparkling clean. There is nothing worse than a few smudges or slightly dusty wine glasses. The house need not look like a grotto to be festive mind you. It can be a large bowl of cones on a coffee table, a beautifully elegant white wreath hanging on a wall, don't let convention rule you. Garden centres and gift shops sell exquisite decorations, so if you are going to splash out, buy one beautiful thing and place it where it can be admired...

Santa Claus is coming to towwwn! Everyone loves a party and this is the time of the year where you will probably attend one, two or even three... You may be planning on hosting one yourself. Catering and booze are the two main ingredients of any Christmas party in general but you need not break the bank on either! Whether it’s a full-on party or a small gathering, if you are on a tight budget, delegate. At this time of the year no one minds bringing a dish they have made at home. The beauty of such an arrangement (apart from its very low cost obviously) is that you will have a very wide choice of foods, making for a very tasty buffet. From quiche to lasagne or homemade sausage rolls to roast chicken, every taste will be catered for. If you’re buying the drinks, visit your local beer specialist or wine merchant, what could be better for the beer lover at Christmas than discovering some local brews. Local specialists will also be able to advise you on what drinks to pair with the food that you are serving. It's not snobby to want what you eat and what you drink to taste good together. Finding a decent Champagne these days is not as difficult as it used to be or as expensive. If you fancy something fizzy to celebrate the festive season or see in the New Year but your purse strings won’t stretch to Champagne, there are some good quality and affordable Proseccos and Cavas out there. At this time of year there are plenty of offers on the high street. Try a classic cocktail like a Bellini, this will work as well with a budget Champagne, Prosecco or a decent Cava.

Shhh! Don't look now but the festive season is just around the corner. Will you be ready! We've put together a few, hopefully helpful, tips to see you through, stress free... Start wrapping presents early but add ribbons, bows, and tags later (label gifts with sticky notes so that you don't forget who gets what). Plain boxes are stackable and, as a result, will be easy to store and transport. Keep all the wrapping paper that is collected in a bag in a garage/cupboard for a few days after Christmas in case anything like small toys, receipts, etc. have been scooped up in the clear up. If you think your child has too much just give him or her what you think they can cope with. It could be no more than three large gifts and a few stocking fillers depending on the child. Then a couple of days later hand out more, that way your child can appreciate all she or he has been given. Ask him or her to choose one or two to give to less fortunate kids as well. It is never too early to learn about compassion and kindness especially in the season of 'good will'. A nice and inexpensive gifts for teachers is to give them an Christmas tree decoration. It's more personal than just giving chocolates and the teacher will remember your child each year when they put up their decorations. Buy some inexpensive baubles and use them as place settings for the table. Write the person's name in glue, sprinkle with glitter and then add a pretty ribbon. The guests can then take them home and use them on their tree. Make a casserole on Christmas Eve morning and put it in the oven to slow cook. Then you can do all the preparation for Christmas Day and have the rest of the day free to visit friends. Bring back that community spirit... Get to know all your neighbours by sending them all Christmas card! If you don't know their names just write 'Merry Christmas from', write your names and house number. This way when you get cards back from everyone you get to know their names and everyone knows yours. It's a good way to break the ice!

What does one wear at Christmas? What can you buy that is new, not ridiculously expensive and will make you stand out from the crowd. We are truly blessed to have the most fantastic designers and fashion shops locally who cater for all age groups and all shapes and sizes. You may think that such an outfit will cost you an arm and a leg... well not necessarily so. And don’t forget that if you really can’t afford that new outfit, glam up something you’re your existing wardrobe. Thankfully, the transition from a very mild autumn to a chilly festive season couldn’t be easier - and it's all down to the gorgeous accessories available on the high street right now. From this season's stylish stoles or a fabulous handbag, these can make the simplest of outfits look amazing. There are so many to choose from. There are some timeless items that everybody needs in their wardrobe, stylish leather jackets, that ‘little black dress’ and the perfect pair of jeans. If you are looking for something classic for your winter wardrobe, then look no further than a stylish jacket or blazer. A blazer can help to add a dressed up look to a relaxed outfit or change a work outfit to evening wear or vice versa. With a wide range of styles and colours, there is a blazer for every occasion. For that perfect festive daytime look, you can't go wrong with a sparkly knit. Perfect for Christmas day at home with the family or dressed up with leather trousers for that party night out!

From bespoke facials and nail services, to Laser and cellulite smoothing Ultrasound treatments in the most opulent surroundings, Kate and the team at Senses Spa in Birkdale pride themselves on ensuring clients get the most exclusive treatments possible and so when she heard about Nouveau Contour, she knew it was something she had to bring to Southport.

Her expertise also saw her team up with the Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool, advising patients on the restorative treatments available to them. “I did a lot of work at the Linda McCartney Foundation in Liverpool, working with women who had lost their hair to chemo and radiotherapy and so this was invaluable for them. As well as enhancing natural features, semi-permanent makeup can be used to treat disfigurements and you’d be amazed at how many women have come to me after suffering bad tattooing at the hands of inexperienced professionals.” Since opening it’s doors in 2003 with it’s chic RococoParisian interior, Senses Spa is Southport’s hidden jewel

Bright and warm colours are big this year, these include purple and red hues. The smockstyle dresses that are all around at the moment are great for that New Year party as they hide a multitude of sins after you've overindulged. Don’t forget that choosing the right lingerie is just as important to achieving the perfect silhouette. There's a wide selection of shaping and control underwear for all body shapes available on the high street. Let’s not forget our feet at this time of year, a strange thought you may say but they do take quite a bashing at this time of year. Days and days of shopping and partying will take their toll eventually… Don't let painful feet be the bane of your evening, go for a medium heel or block heel with a platform. This adds extra support and looks great. Men’s fashion has also taken a more formal turn with suit trousers taking over from jeans. Paired with a tailored jacket or jumper, you have the perfect outfit. The stylish man's colour palette, at least when it comes to major purchases, tends to be limited, blue, grey and sometimes brown. Nowadays pattern is essential but it calls for rules… Generally, the rule is not to clash. If you are wearing a check jacket, make sure your shirt is a block colour, and vice versa. The best advice you have is to enjoy the festive season with fashion. It’s all about having fun with colour and style, so be merry and your confidence will shine.

If you haven’t already started planning your Christmas menu, there isn’t a moment to lose! This is the one area where shopping ‘local’ definitely has to be best. Christmas is a busy time of year for speciality fresh food retailers, so if you’re planning on having a leg of ham, pork, turkey or seafood make sure you place an order well in advance to avoid disappointment. One of the biggest mistakes people make is choosing too many dishes that need a lot of lastminute attention, so put some thought into planning your menu. It is much more worthwhile to do a few different dishes well than to spread yourself too thin. Quality over quantity! Have you ever thought about trying something different to the traditional turkey dinner, try this alternative menu… To start: Smoked trout pâté & pitta crisps. Main course: Mustardglazed roast chicken with a Waldorf stuffing. Dessert: Fruit sponge puddings. These recipes and other alternatives can be found on the internet. And if all else fails.... why not put your feet up and let Wiltshire Farm Foods take the pressure off you. Think of it... no trips to the shops, and a lovely meal delivered to your door, using the best ingredients available for a very tasty alternative... With a range that will delight most palates good food has never been so easy for everyone to enjoy without the effort! Wiltshire Farm Foods www.wiltshirefarmfoods.com/ Phone: 0800 773 773

As we all know, it is all too easy to exceed our budgets and end up spending way too much on gifts at Christmas. At times we get it wrong due to poor planning and sometimes because of a lack of inspiration. Shopping locally takes all that worry away. Shop a little at a time, spread the spending, spread the time. Buy something every lunch time or every time you go out, put it away and cross the name you have bought for off your list. We bet that you will buy great presents at a much lower price. Keep it local for the best Christmas ever. Discover the local areas around you and what they have to offer. There are so many wonderful independent traders who are willing to help you find that perfect gift. This is a great time of year to consider giving someone a fresh produce hamper or gift box, this could include local fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses, preserves and their favourite tipple (from tea and coffee to wine and whiskey). Hampers need not stop at food, they can contain beauty products and toiletries as well, there are many ways to adapt and personalise your hamper depending on who you are buying for. If all else fails why not buy a gift voucher? This after all is the gift that keeps on giving, right? It's not just the chain stores that offer this facility. This is becoming more and more popular with the smaller retailers.

If someone is setting up their new home then imagine what a gift card or voucher for their local hardware or furniture store would mean to them. Is their anyone on your list who loves to swim, keep fit or take part in martial arts? A membership or part payment may be the perfect gift. Christmas is all about giving but what is important here is not the value (NEVER the value). What indeed IS the most important thing remains the thought process, buying something irrelevant of value that will thrill its recipient. That is the hard trick and no impersonal store or shop online will ever provide what your local stores and business can. Consider those who seem to have everything. How many pairs of socks or unused ties do you imagine he owns and how many soaps and hand creams has she collected over the years? You really want to find something unusual for them but what? You need not worry because again, your local businesses offer a whole range of alternative and exciting ideas hard to find anywhere else. From fantastic tattoos to great body jewellery or even an introduction to a microlight flight you will never be short of inspiration if you shop local. Convenient, independent, unusual, great value, sound advice are all the things that you will find this Christmas locally. Now tell us...Who needs the Internet and out-of-towns shopping centres?

Sure fire way to getting it right card (ouch!) and a budget in mind and you are determined to get it right this year. No you won't go down the easy road of buying in bulk and hoping that everyone will be thrilled with boxes of non descript chocolates or bottles of mediocre wines. All these cost money and each year, as you unwrap your bottles of Tuscan olive oil or jar of Greek olives from relatives who ought to know better, you have that sinking feeling that your gifts are probably as popular with YOUR folks.... We spend a fair few hours wondering the same, one question each year. WHAT CAN WE BUY HIM? WHAT WILL SHE LIKE? Well, perhaps the right way of choosing something is by changing the way we think. What's a gift? Does it have to be a physical thing? What you do by gifting someone is let them in the fact that you like them enough to buy them something. Everything we do conveys an intention and therefore a message, so a gift from you is the same thing really. Some gifts are you saying “Here's a treat, you deserve to look good this Christmas.” Another one can mean “As a cook you'll love this ingredient, I look forward to your invite so I can taste it too!” A great gift is never about its value as we have already said but it is always about communicating what you know and think of the person you are buying for. A slapdash,

boring gift is telling them you do not care enough about them to do better. Think about how you feel when you get a present yourself. Think about the ones you have liked and the ones that have disappointed you. We bet the best ones are always the ones when someone has thought about how you are and how you will feel when you unwrap its festive paper. When you buy something for someone, think of them FIRST. Their values in life. Are they active, young, old, foodies, film buffs? That sort of thing. They are your friends, you know them quite well. If they have a passion don't be tempted to buy a book about it, they may already own it but why not get a funny item related to that hobby! The wilder the better generally.... In short, the best gifts are the gifts that you never expect. And the gifts you don't want a receipt for! The best gifts are borne out of great thinking, when someone shows you how well they know you and ultimately how much they care for you.... One last tip. When you make your list this year write by the side of each name a hobby or interest you know the person to have. And have a great shopping trip!

t a p l e H Xmas Help can come in many forms, maybe you need help or are willing to help others. If you're on your own at Christmas or maybe you just choose not to celebrate this time of year, there are plenty of things that you can do to help others.

Many charities are always in need of people who can lend a helping hand over the festive season. But they do need to plan ahead, so if you are thinking of volunteering this Christmas, now is the time to find out what opportunities are available in your area.

Christmas is a good time to be sociable but if you're feeling lonely and your friends are occupied with their families, it can help to speak to someone completely removed from your situation.

23 years of great service

Christmas is also the time for some of us where loneliness is at its most acute, sometimes unbearably so. If that happens to you, don't feel more alone than you have to. Here is a list of the wonderful people who may be able to help you.

(Note: 25th December & 1st January 2015 Markets will not take place)

Shop ‘til you drop! With around 100 stalls, set in the pedestrianised area in the heart of the town around the famous Clock Tower, the market attracts hundreds of bargain hunters each market day. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it on the market. With a great of range food stalls selling fresh breads, homemade pies, cheese, olives, not to mention fresh fish, meat and vegetables. You’ll also find a variety of clothing stalls, flowers, cards, furniture, and hardware.

Opening hours

The market is open for business each Thursday and Saturday from 8.00am - 4.30pm during March to October and 8.00am - 4.00pm November to February.
