CLOSED PUB COULD BE COMMUNITY HUB Report by Ollie Cowan

RESIDENTS in Birkdale have started a petition to transform their former local into a special community hub. The Blundell Arms on Upper Aughton Road shut down in March of this year and since then has remained a blot on the area with boarded up windows, overgrown weeds and graffiti. It is currently listed for sale by Star Pubs and Bars but in an audacious move, former Blundell locals have launched a petition to transform the building back into a pub and community hub – which would include a mini library, bingo room, post office and community garden. Over 200 people have signed a petition calling for it to be given community ownership, a scheme run by the Pub Is the Hub non-for-profit scheme that helps provide support to licensees, rural pubs, community services and communities looking to rejuvenate an old public house. Now a group of residents, led by former Blundell local Jason McCormack, will attempt to exact a law called the ‘Community Right To Bid’ which was created in 2012 as part of the Localism Act. The Community Right to Bid means that communities can ‘stop-the-clock’ on the sale of valuable local assets like community pubs, giving them time to put in a bid of their own and protect it for the wider benefits of the community. The new right gives voluntary and community

organisations and parish councils the opportunity to nominate an asset to be included on a list of ‘Assets of Community Value’, pausing the sale of a successfully listed asset for six-months, giving communities the opportunity and time to prepare a bid and get a business plan together. If their bid is successful, the locals can have the sale of the building halted while they get a funding package together. Jason is now determined to get as many people as possible to sign the petition, telling the Champion: “I want it to be a community pub. The place is massive and could host a library, bingo, mother and baby club, a post office, a play area, community garden, a food bank and it can be a pub at nights and weekends. Bring back the Dell!”

If the petition gains enough support, Jason will then apply to have the pub listed as an Asset of Community Value. A Star Pubs & Bars spokesperson said: “We are aware of community interest in The Blundell Arms which has been closed for six months due to nobody wanting to take this large, expensive-torun pub on and turn it into a profitable business. “After three years of trying and failing to find a suitable operator with the relevant experience and investment available, we took the difficult decision to put the property on the market, something that is always a last resort option.” To sign the petition visit you.38degrees. org.uk/petitions/turn-the-blundell-arms-into-acommunity-pub.

ANOTHER former Southport Hospital staff member has been found guilty of gross misconduct. Despite the fact she has already resigned from the trust, an investigation into whistleblowing complaints have found former director of human resources Sharon Partington guilty of gross misconduct. Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust has confirmed that the disciplinary hearings in respect of allegations against the former director of human resources, Sharon Partington, and the former chief operating officer, Sheilah Finnegan, have now concluded. Ms Partington resigned and Mrs Finnegan retired from the Trust’s employment prior to the conclusion of the disciplinary process. However, due to the nature of the allegations and their seniority, the Trust was obliged to complete the disciplinary process, asking the disciplinary panels to consider what, if any action, would have been taken if the individuals had remained employed by the Trust. Following Ms Partington’s disciplinary hearing, it was determined that the former Director of Human Resources would have been dismissed as a consequence of gross misconduct had she remained in employment. Ms Partington has the right of appeal against the decision. The decision follows the outcome of a disciplinary hearing which reviewed eight allegations of misconduct.

The disciplinary panel found evidence on six counts of misconduct, one of which amounted to gross misconduct. The independent disciplinary panel considered three allegations of misconduct against Mrs Finnegan and determined that the allegations were not proven. The disciplinary panel recommended that had Ms Finnegan remained in employment no disciplinary sanction would have been imposed on her. The disciplinary panel hearing the allegations against Mrs Finnegan did note that the case involved serious matters arising from whistleblowing complaints. The panel noted that the Trust “had no option but to instigate a thorough investigation� under the relevant policy and then to refer the outcome of the investigation to a disciplinary hearing. The panels’ recommendations have been fully accepted by the Trust Board. Trust Chair, Sue Musson, said: “The overriding objective for the Trust has been to handle this very serious and complex matter appropriately and fairly. “I want to thank the panels for conducting the hearings and reviewing all the evidence so diligently. “With the conclusion of these hearings, the four disciplinary cases involving Trust senior staff are now complete (subject to appeal). “The Board continues to focus on our key priority, delivering high quality, sustainable healthcare services to our local population. “I would like, again, to acknowledge the bravery of the individuals who came forward and spoke out about their concerns. Following this difficult time for everyone concerned, the Trust now has an opportunity to focus on the future.�

Hospital told to make Boy’s kind donation further improvements helps gran who was to A&E by watchdog victim of gift scam Report by Ollie Cowan SOUTHPORT and Ormskirk Hospital requires considerable improvements to make both sites safer, more effective, responsive and an improvement in leadership – according to a care watchdog report. Inspectors from the Care and Qualities Commission visited the Trust in April of this year to see how much improvement had been made since its previous report in May 2015. Some positives could be taken from the report, which was released on Tuesday (November 15), as the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Unit at Southport hospital improved two levels from Inadequate to Good with some aspects of outstanding practice. Inspectors also noted improvements the maternity service had made at Ormskirk hospital, rating it Requires Improvement. It was previously rated Inadequate. Yet overall improvements still need to be made to raise the hospital’s rating further. Perhaps most damningly the CQC has rated the accident and emergency department and the surgical services at Southport and Formby District General Hospital as Inadequate. Inspectors found that the hospital did not give sufficient priority to safety in urgent care. Patients needing urgent care were waiting too long to be seen and assessed, with some patients remaining in the department under the supervision of ambulance staff for periods of up to 11 hours. In surgery at Southport and Formby District General Hospital, staff did not always assess, monitor or manage risks to people who use the services and opportunities to prevent or minimise harm were missed. Medically deteriorating patients were not always identified promptly and there could be a delay before medical assessment was undertaken. The recruitment of suitable medical staff was challenging with vacancies for junior doctors and consultants. Recruitment and retention of nursing and midwifery had been a longstanding issue. However, the inspectors found there had been a notable improvement in both the maternity ser-

vices and the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Centre which had both received Inadequate ratings at the last inspection. The Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards, said: “Two years ago we identified a number of problems at Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust. “I am disappointed that overall the progress has been limited and that we have found a deterioration in the safety and quality of some of the trust’s services, particularly in the emergency department at Southport and Formby Hospital. “I note with concern the delays in patients being assessed in the accident and emergency department, and the risks to safety in surgery which must be addressed. “Since our inspection earlier this year the trust has taken steps to improve – and we are monitoring that on a monthly basis. “On the other hand, there have been significant improvements in all aspects of patient care and treatment at the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Unit that we had previously rated as inadequate for safety. It is now rated as Good with some aspects of outstanding practice. “We have also found improvements within the maternity service although there is room for further progress. “Until recently, the trust was led by an interim executive team, which limited the ability to demonstrate a clear strategy for the future. “It is important now that the new executive team focusses on the areas where we have identified continuing shortfalls.” Rob Gillies, executive medical director, said: “The inspection they said the Trust possessed ‘committed, compassionate, and passionate staff who are willing to go above and beyond to do their best for patients’. “We are delighted to see this confirmed.” Responding to the rating of A&E and surgical services at Southport, Mr Gillies said significant progress had been made on the issues the inspectors raised seven months ago. “A&E is now a very different department. We have benefited from external support and put in resources of our own, including an extra £600,000 for nurses staffing. “This has contributed to a major improvement with the department regularly the best performer in Cheshire and Merseyside and consistently among the top performers in the country,” he said.

High rents blamed for closure of H&M store Report by Ollie Cowan STAFF at H&M Southport have been told they will soon have to leave their Chapel Street store after the firm chose not to renew its lease on the building. To Let signs have already gone up above the store and it is believed staff have been told that they will be transferred to other H&M stores across the region - although store bosses remain tight lipped. The Champion understands that increasingly high rents on the town centre building had forced the clothing chain to close the store. It costs H&M, or whoever takes over the shop in the future, £215,000 a year to rent. Plagued by misfortune the store also shut temporarily earlier this year when contractors discovered asbestos in the wall and ceiling. A spokesperson for GCW Retail Estate Agents said: “The premises are available on a new full repairing and insuring lease subject to five yearly upward only rent reviews for a term to be agreed. “The property is situated in Southport's prime fashion pitch adjacent to New Look, River Island and opposite to Marks & Spencer.” H&M would not comment. H&M is closing down.

A KIND hearted Southport schoolboy has come to the rescue of a woman who was scammed out of a Christmas present for her grandson. Twelve year old Birkdale High student Kieran Conway has been showered with praise after he donated his almost brand new PlayStation Vita gaming console worth £300 completely free to a Southport woman who was scammed when she tried to buy a Christmas present for her grandson. The woman had decided to purchase a second hand Playstation Portable (PSP) hand held gaming console from a stranger on social media site Facebook for £50 and even agreed to pay the petrol of the seller so he could drop off the gift. It was intended to be a nice Christmas present for her grandson but when she came to check the PSP, she found it to be broken and all attempts to contact the seller again were in vain after he disappeared. Her daughter contacted the Southport Buy, Sell and Swap Facebook page where the sale had been made to warn others not to fall for similar scams. It was then that Kieran saw the warning and immediately decided to donate his PS Vita – a superior model to the PSP – completely free of charge so the woman’s grandson could have a Christmas present. Since the post was made, Kieran has been showered with praise by friends, family and strangers! Speaking to the Champion his proud dad Lee said: “After seeing the post about a Grandmother being sold a broken PSP he thought it would be good if he could help out – especially with Christmas coming up! “Kieran had actually been watching all the John Lewis adverts from the last few years on Youtube and I think it put him in a charitable mood, although he does tend to do nice things like this from time to time. “Only the other day he sorted out some of his books and football boots to take to the Lions charity shop in Ainsdale village. “Kieran just thinks he's doing what anyone else would do so it was nice to see people give him a pat on the back, we're obviously very proud of him.”

New community care provider is revealed, but move is blasted by resort MP John Pugh Warning to readers: We apologise in advance should the report below prove confusing. MP John Pugh certainly thinks so. He has blasted the latest announcement from NHS chiefs, saying there are now far too many factions involved in the day to day running of health services. A glance at the table, (right) shows he has a point. Listed are all the groups involved in the process of naming the new provider of community care for people living in Southport and Formby. Confused? You will be!

Report by Ollie Cowan THE new provider of community care for Southport and Formby Hospital Trust has been revealed after a long drawn out process by the North Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group. The Southport and Omrskirk NHS Hospital Trust has officially lost the tender contract for community care in the area, which will now be provided by Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust. The move has been blasted by Southport MP John Pugh, who says there are now far too many different factions involved in the day to day running of tht Town Lane Hospital. From May 2017 Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust will be the new provider of community services for residents who fall under the Southport and Formby NHS Clinical Commissioning Group. Up until that date it has been run by Southport and Formby NHS Trust. According to a spokesperson the Lancashire Foundation Trust showed that they were better suited to cope with high demand and provide a better quality of care than the other bidders. Dr Rob Caudwell, chair of NHS Southport and Formby CCG, said: “After their GP, community services are often the most commonly used healthcare that our residents will come into contact with, which is why this process has been so important in helping us select the right organisation to manage these services in the future. “Lancashire Care offered the highest levels of quality for our patients and over the next six months they will be working with the current provider to ensure that when they take over in May 2017, it’s as smooth and seamless a

transfer as possible for patients and community service staff alike. “As this change is about the management of these services and not about direct care, we do not expect patients to notice any difference to the community services they use or to the staff who provide them.” Chief operating officer for Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, Sue Moore, said: “Alongside our partners, we are absolutely delighted to have been selected as the provider of community services for the Southport and Formby area. “It is our intention to work with established partners within the locality to continue to deliver high quality community services for local people and to support their health and wellbeing. “We are very excited about the opportunity to provide services in this area and to building on the positive relationships that have been established with local GPs, the third sector and Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust who will be key players in our future models of care.” Southport MP John Pugh stated: “It makes no sense to have yet another organisation involved in the delivery of community services when we are trying to integrate existing services more closely. “There has been bad blood between the doctors’ commissioning group (CCG) who award the contract and the hospital and unfortunately it is the local community who will suffer most from this spat. “Taking a big contract like this of a hospital already starved of money and proper leadership is a real blow and can only worsen the hospital’s ability to deliver its other services. “It is hard to feel anything but anger for the way our local services have been put at risk by NHS chiefs paid handsomely to preserve and develop them.”

Plea to find war medal lost on Remembrance Sunday Russian Order of St George was given to visitor ’s grandfather Report by Ollie Cowan

Chrissy Holt and the missing medal, right

A WOMAN who came to pay her respects during the Remembrance service in Southport is appealing for help after her grandfather’s war medal went missing. Proudly displaying a selection of her late granddad’s medals from the Boer and First World War, Chrissy Holt from Burnley was visiting the resort with her friend for the day to pay her respects at the Cenotaph. However after walking around the town following the service Chrissy soon realised that one of the medals, a Russian Order of St George, had slipped from its ribbon and disappeared. A frantic search of the town centre and retracing Chrissy ’s steps was in vain and she was forced to return home to Lancashire without it. Now she is asking South-

port residents to be on the look out or, if they know where the medal might be, to get in touch with the Champion. Chrissy told our reporter: “We visit Southport a lot and often go to the remembrance service and each year I wear my grandfather ’s medals. I am very proud to wear them. “He had a lot of medals and the one that’s missing is the Russian Order of St George. “It’s not the actual medal because my grandfather had to sell it in the 1930s to have enough money to feed his children but the copy has huge sentimental value to me. “I am not sure whereabouts it went missing because I have retraced all my steps. “We went to the cenotaph, the Royal Arcade and the Prince of Wales so it could be anywhere around there. “We also went to Debenhams. I tried to report it to the police but the station was closed. “I know it got lost somewhere in the town centre.” If you have found the missing medal or know of its whereabouts email ollie.cowan@ champnews.com or call 01704 392 406.

DETECTIVES are appealing for witnesses after a male was assaulted in Southport. The male, 17, was in Cambridge Arcade at around 2.05pm on Sunday November 13, when the incident happened. A man approached the victim and attacked him with a sharp object to his neck. The victim was taken to hospital but the injury is not life threatening. The suspect ran away and is described as white, 30 to 40-yearsold, slim build, with short brown

hair and unshaven. He was wearing a blue FCUK T-shirt, blue jeans with a white belt and carrying a rucksack. A 32-year-old man from the Southport area has been arrested and is being questioned. Detective Inspector Robert Moss said: “This was a shocking and unprovoked assault on a young man. “There were many people in the area at the time of this incident and I would encourage anyone who saw anything to contact us.”

Biker thanks passers-by for help after suffering injuries in collision A BIKER had a lucky escape after being involved in a collision in Southport. Kieran Oldham, from Southport, was knocked off his bike at the junction of Cambridge Road and Hesketh Drive after colliding with a Vauxhall Adam shortly after 5pm on Wednesday, November 9. Passers-by stopped to give first aid while they waited for emer-

gency services to arrive. He was later taken to Southport Hospital with a suspected broken leg and hand. The driver of the car suffered minor cuts and bruises. The biker later expressed thanks on social media to people who ran to his aid and provided him with coats and blankets before emergency services to arrive.

Air ambulance called after road collision

Jason and Jacqueline Carmichael.

Couple win battle in Supreme Court over bedroom tax Report by Tom Martin A SPINA bifida sufferer from Southport and her carer husband have won landmark rulings at the UK's highest court over the controversial socalled ‘bedroom tax.’ Jacqueline and Jason Carmichael, who live in a two-bedroom housing association flat in the resort, have had a protracted and ultimately successful battle throughout the British legal system against the Department for Work and Pensions. The DWP are not happy with the final verdict but they are now powerless to do anything, Supreme Court justices overturned a 2014 Court of Appeal decision which went against Jacqueline while also dismissing an appeal by the government against another couple from Pembrokshire. They upheld appeals by the DWP for five other cases however. Mrs Carmichael and the others complained that changes to housing benefit unlawfully discriminate against people with disabilities who have a need for an additional bedroom because of that disability. In a written ruling, the justices said the merits of the so-called ‘bedroom tax’ or ‘removal of the spare room subsidy’ was not a matter for the court, ‘nor is there any challenge to the legality of the cap as it applies in general.� Jason told the Champion: “We are over the moon and delighted. We wanted to shout from the rooftops and we wanted to have champagne at the time. “We can rest a lot easier now than what we were in the past. This is a big relief from the stress and panic of everything.� Rosa Curling, a solicitor at the law firm Leigh Day, who represented the Carmichaels, said: “This is an extremely important and welcome decision which

recognises that the government cannot trample over people’s rights in the name of austerity. “Our clients had a very clear medical need for two bedrooms and it’s disappointing that the government chose to fight this case for three years, putting our clients through a long period of uncertainty. “Our clients are delighted that justice has been done and they can now start to move on with their lives knowing that their rights as a disabled person and their right to a family life together will be respected.â€? A DWP spokesman said:“It is welcome that the Court found in our favour in five out of the seven cases. “The Court also agreed with our view that Discretionary Housing Payments are generally an appropriate and lawful way to provide assistance to those who need extra help. In the two specific cases where the Court did not find in our favour, we will take steps to ensure we comply with the judgement in due course. “In most cases, Local Authorities are best placed to understand the needs of their residents, which is why we will have given them over ÂŁ1bn by the end of this parliament for Discretionary Housing Payments to ensure that people in difficult situations don’t lose out.â€? Local Care spokesperson Tony Dawson said: “Councillors took up this matter with the Minister from March 2013 onwards, calling for the government to recognise the need for flexibility to deal with people who need extra accommodation due to disability. Unfortunately, the requests, fell on deaf ears. “The Supreme Court has now unanimously agreed that this is not a lawful form of discrimination and has required the government to recognise the clear circumstances in which people with severe disabilities are entitled to have their need for extra space assessed automatically under the statutory scheme.â€?

AN air ambulance was called to Albert Road at the weekend following a road collision near to the Imperial Pub. Although not needed in the end, there were concerns that the 70-yearold driver of a Renault which collided with another car would need to be air lifted to hospital with severe neck and back injuries. After being assessed by paramedics it was decided that the man would be taken to hospital by conventional ambulance instead following the incident shortly before 3pm on Saturday November 12. Fire crews and emergency services were called to the scene to give immediate first aid to the driver, while a couple in the other car were assessed at the scene for minor cuts and bruises. The road remained closed for nearly two hours while the scene was cleared up.

Fighter Kev returns home for knockout night of black ties and black eyes! WORLD CHAMPION fighter Kev Ward will return to his hometown of Southport next month for what is being billed as the biggest ever display of fighting and boxing the town has ever seen. Kev, the current International Sports Karate Association World Champion belt holder, will take on Ireland’s Aiden Brooks in a headline showdown as part of the ‘Elite Fisticuffs and Cufflinks’ event at Southport Theatre on December 2. Fisticuffs and Cufflinks, the boxing brainchild of local DJ Baz Todd, has been held in the resort for the past few years, will team up with the Elite Fighting Championships event hosted by fellow Sandgrounder Jay Barton for the amal-

Report by Ollie Cowan gamated event with the duo promising that it will be the ultimate combination of ‘black eyes and black ties.’ Baz told the Champion: “This event has already secured white collar boxing bouts with some of Southport’s biggest names. “We have A-Class Thai bouts and the five time current World Champion Kev Ward will defend his ISKA World Championship belt against Irelands finest Aiden Brooks. “The last time this pair met was in the ring at Wembley Arena in 2015, Ward was triumphant then and looks to be once again come Friday 2nd December at

Southport Theatre & Convention Centre. “Kev Ward hasn’t fought in his hometown since winning one of his many world titles back in 2013, so for him to be back on home soil is truly an honour. “This will be a must see co-promotion for fight fans & Christmas nights out involving Southport personalities, the countries finest fighters, and the worlds best K1 champion.� For ticket enquiries contact the Fisticuffs & Cufflinks or Elite Fighting Championships Facebook pages, alternatively call 07595940544.

From Howard's Funeral Directors

The perfect time to make a funeral plan is today

Recent vandalism at Lakeside Minature Railway.

Police eager to track down yobs who went on a wrecking spree at miniature railway site POLICE are eager to find the vandals who went on a wrecking spree at the Lakeside Miniature Railway house on Southport’s Marine Lake. Owners of the site, Pleasureland, say they are ‘disappointed’ by the attack and will now work with contractors to quickly regenerate the site for visitors. A spokesperson for Pleasureland told The Champion: “There are at least thirteen windows that have been smashed while the shelter at the start of the railway has also been smashed and two benches have been wrecked, one of which was overturned onto the track. “Norman Wallis, the owner, is investing a huge amount at the moment on the actual track as no work had been done on it for years prior to his purchase of the railway in May this year. “It’s heartbreaking to see. “He has already invested heavily into the actual

locomotives and we now have a specialist working with us to repair the track and do further work with the locomotives to get them up and running to it’s required standard next year. “We will now have to spend time and resources on repairing the latest damage.” The damage took place between 3pm on Sunday, November 6 and 9:45am on Tuesday, November 8. Neighbourhood Inspector Graham Fisher said “This incident will have caused distress to those who visit Pleasureland, and those who work there. “I would urge anyone who saw or heard anything to contact us. I would like to reassure our community that with your help we will make every effort to trace those responsible.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Merseyside Police on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Report by Ollie Cowan PARTY-GOERS will get extra help to see them safely home during the festive celebrations thanks to a taxi marshalling initiative by Southport BID. Christmas-time revellers who are heading into the town centre are to be supported by licensed marshals after funding was agreed between Southport Business Improvement District, Sefton Council, and Merseyside Police. Starting in December and running at weekends and over Bank Holidays throughout Christmas and New Year, the scheme will employ taxi marshals in high visibility jackets to provide extra peace of mind to revellers looking to return home by taxi after a night out. Their role will also be to ensure that only legal and registered hackney carriages and private hire vehicles are operating in the town. The marshals will also help maintain an orderly queue for the taxis throughout the night meaning that the queues move faster. The scheme will be funded by the BID working in close partnership with the council and the police. Hugh Evans, BID CEO,

Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Regulatory, Compliance and Corporate Services, said: “We want everyone to enjoy the vibrant nightlife Southport has to offer and the taxi marshals will only enhance this.

they are getting into legal and registered vehicles after an enjoyable night out.” Neighbourhood Inspector Graham Fisher said: “This is a crucial step in ensuring the safety of those enjoying our nightlife over the festive period. “The taxi rank has sometimes been a focal point for disorder as people try to get home. With the introduction of the marshals this assists those people in getting home and reduces instances of disorder that can sometimes flare up at the rank. The taxi marshals will work closely with pub and club door staff, the police and CCTV teams, and street pastors to help keep our town centre safe and orderly. They will be linked by radio and body worn camera.

Para-Triathlon is set to become a regular event YOUNG people from Sefton who have been inspired by the Paralympics over the summer took part in their own disabled sports event. Taking place at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, 28 locals aged eight-25 who have special educational needs and disabilities participated in a Para-Triathlon. Leading up to the event, Sefton Council worked in partnership with Sport England to create the perfect training programme for young people with additional needs to take part. The Para-Triathlon was designed to test the participants in three key areas; water swimming (150m), cycling (4K) and running (2.5K). John Doran, Inclusion Practitioner at Sefton Council, said: “We are very proud of the huge strides our young people have made this summer. The Para-Triathlon was the culmination of a fant-

astic training programme where young people with a range of additional needs pushed themselves to the limit. “Taking encouragement from the success of this event, we will be hosting regular Para-Triathlons and speaking with our partners in the neighbouring Merseyside local authorities to organise a Merseyside-wide Para-Triathlon for children, young people and families.” Cllr John-Joseph Kelly, Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Safeguarding at Sefton Council said: “Like people up and down the country, I kept a keen eye on the fortunes of Team GB at the Paralympics in Rio and it’s great to see young people in Sefton taking inspiration from our Paralympians. “I was also heartened to see so many families, friends and the wider community encouraging our young people in an incredible feat.”

LETTERS to the Editor Your excellent cricket coverage is appreciated I am sure all cricket followers would wish to join me and show their appreciation for the excellent weekly local cricket coverage provided by Glenn Wallworth in the Champion. Not only does he provide the weekly news, results and performances during the season but he keeps the interest going until almost the end of October with his comprehensive round up of the statistics from each division. The Liverpool and District Cricket Competition is played at a very high standard with many fine cricketers providing spectators with excellent entertainment throughout the season and all players, umpires, scorers, club officials etc deserve every credit for their efforts.

Stop ‘would-be Bradley Wiggins’ I fear for the future of from tearing down pavements historic pub in Formby I never set foot in town these days without some would-be Bradley Wiggins tearing past me on the pavement. I recently stopped a woman dressed in yellow who I thought was a police officer but turned out to be a traffic warden and I mentioned it to her. She said it was perfectly legal to ride on pavements apart from down Chapel Street. I said this was not the case but she would not have it. I then spotted a policeman on Lord Street after two more deluded Tour de France entrants whizzed past and I asked if he would state the position. He confirmed that riding on pavements anywhere is against the law.

I have written to our MP in the past on this issue, but nothing concrete is ever done. To the correspondent who recently blamed motorists for ignoring cyclists on the road, well, last week on Liverpool Road after dark, a teenager dressed in black with no lights anywhere on his bike was riding against the traffic, doing wheelies in the road and swerving on and off the pavement. He missed me by inches. Who would have been to blame if a motorist had run him over? B Goulden, Southport

It is with some regret to see the slow and painful demise of one of Formby’s favourite and historic public houses located at Cross Green. The Liverpool Pathway is being implemented here. Over the past 12/18 months we have seen the deterioration of the premises which clearly is not the fault of the hard working management and staff. It is obvious to the many long standing patrons that there is an agenda here with fixtures/fittings and facilities such as toilets well overdue for refurbishment. Beers are often not available and the customer base and turnover is diminishing. Might it not therefore be politic, if not polite, for Greene King, as a company with more than 3,000 pubs and restaurants in the UK with profits of nearly £90 million, to find the time to fully clarify the situation to the many local people who have contributed in a small way to your success. Cheers!

PICTURE of the week

Cliff Scott et al, (By email)

Young footballers should clean up field after games I HAVE to express my utter disgust having returned from my morning walk with my two little dogs over the Kew Field after football matches were played there - the grass was littered with at least 20 small empty plastic pop bottles. I often look on with admiration at the volunteers who dedicate their time to young people, rain or shine. However, I was shocked to find such a sight. Please, at the end of each game or training session, pass around a bin liner for any rubbish the children may have. Not only do these young people look upon the adults as sporting mentors, but also as responsible people. Do not allow the youngsters to walk away from the field until they have cleared up any mess they have created - hence I will, in turn, never walk away without clearing up my dog’s mess. Ms Darby, Southport

Thanks for service postmaster Tony! There was a carpet of golden leaves for walkers in last Saturday's event organised by fostering group Parallel Parents who completed several circuits of Hesketh Park to raise funds for Children in Need. Picture by Martyn Snape.

Fracking agencies are unfit for purpose FRACK Free Formby is opposed to the process of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for shale gas because of its harmful impact on communities and the environment. We firmly believe that Aurora’s plans for fracking under Formby are not just detrimental but foolhardy, primarily in view of the geological structure of Downholland Moss. The underlying Triassic sandstone is known to contain fault lines and has only a thin mudstone cover. The conditions have resulted in numerous surface seeps on the site of the old Formby oilfield, a possible loca-

tion for fracking wells in due course. Pre-existing stress is concentrated along these faults, and the huge additional forces employed in fracking might well therefore induce earth tremors. We had hoped that the opportunity for discussion with the Regulators at their recent ‘road show’ in Aughton would help to allay our fears. Two of the exhibits however showed the full extent of the surface level and vertical faults in the sandstone which spreads across the Formby basin. Some of the faults go down as far as 3,000 metres, and

many interconnect underground. The opportunity was taken to ask each of the Regulators in turn if fracking would still now be allowed near bedrock faults, after it caused the two earth tremors that occurred at Preesall near Blackpool in 2011. Their response demonstrated a fragmented and uncoordinated approach. The Health and Safety Executive said probably not, the Environment Agency said definitely not, and the Oil and Gas Authority said it probably would be allowed providing there were appropriate safeguards.

The regulators will attempt to carry out their individual statutory duties of monitoring and regulating the fracking industry, but are clearly hampered with limited budgets, resources and staffing levels. Regulation is likely to be reactive, ‘light-touch’ and dependent on a self-regulatory tick box approach from the fracking industry. We came away convinced that the various agencies involved are collectively ‘unfit for purpose.’ John Wilkinson Formby

Having been a resident in Crossens for just under 10 years, I have enjoyed the services of the shops and amenities on Rufford Road. One being the small Post Office on the corner of Brade Street, ran by postmaster Tony Hughes. As the whole community is well aware by now, Tony has retired and the post office has transferred services up the road to the local pharmacy. Clichéd as it sounds; it is very fitting to say the likes of Tony are a dying breed. Tony was a model of professional consistency. Over the years he served me with quiet efficiency and was always able to answer any question or query I put to him, although he did struggle once or twice when talking about his beloved Preston North End. I gladly handed him a bottle of wine to enjoy as I shook him by the hand on his last day. Thank you Tony for all your years of service to the community, enjoy your retirement you have thoroughly deserved it. Eddie Webster. Southport

blooming big ...with a little help from her gardening guerilla friends! Report by Ollie Cowan

VISITORS to Southport cannot help but notice the well kept gardens of St Georges Place on Lord Street... or the group of busy volunteers helping to keep it that way. But such is the quietly efficient way they go about their business, that these green fingered ‘guerillas’ swiftly move on to the next mission, the only evidence of their presence being the eye catching floral display they have left behind for all to enjoy. The gardening guerillas are, in fact, the Lord Street in Bloom group – a collection of supermarket community champions, retired resort residents and local campaigners who all have one very simple aim: to make Southport bloom. At their head is the original guerilla gardener – hotelier Pauline Morris – who once worked under Community garden volunteers at work the cover of dusk to plant flowers and bulbs along Lord Street in a bid to combat the nationally recognised by the cus bulbs in St George’s Place, ongoing cuts that Sefton Council Royal Horticultural Society as a donated by the local Rotary were forced to make on South- Community Champion. group. port’s green spaces.

“It has taken six years but we are incredibly proud of the Britain In Bloom Coastal Award Southport has received. “I was first known as the guerilla gardener of Southport,” she recalls. “That started six years ago when the council started to make the cutbacks and my guests at Barford House were coming to ask me why there

were no hanging baskets or flower beds in Southport anymore. That’s when I decided to take it upon myself to start filling up all the urns and bring back some colour to town. “It was just me on my own for a full year to start with – now look at the team we have! “On a weekly basis we can do anything from weeding to

planting. In the last two weeks, thanks to Rotary clubs across Southport, we have planted 10,000 crocus bulbs in the area. “We have all the urns to plant up and soon we’ll be planting hundreds of miniature daffodils in time for spring.” Pauline is now a Royal Horticultural Society Community Champion but although the

award has her name on it, she says everyone involved is deserving of that title. “I told the judges I’d accept the honour but only on behalf of everyone,” she said. “To all those who have helped, who continue to help and those who want to volunteer in the future, I’d like to say a massive thank you.”

• FLATS • TWO ROOM STUDIOS • LARGE SINGLE ROOMS • ALL EN SUITE This means ensuring our houses and services support the values and preferences of older people, and provide a valuable link between residents, their families and the local community.

Companionship and community Our sheltered houses have been run for 25 years by local staff and volunteers who genuinely care, and share our aim to help older people enjoy a full and purposeful life in the community. We understand how important freedom and independence are, but we are always there for reassurance and extra help if required.

The Best of Both Worlds

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to move into Gadsby House, Alexandra road. I have kept my independence, but at the same time, I live in comfortable, friendly, secure environment, where my privacy is respected, but help is there when I need it. I am near to Lord Street, shops, buses, library, theatres an all amenities the town has to offer, and having my own front door key I can come and go as I please. I even have garage space for my scooter! I can retire to my own rooms, surrounded by my own furniture and possessions, where I can pursue my hobbies or just enjoy some “peace and quiet”. My friends can visit whenever they wish. I have no worries about bills coming in as everything is included in the monthly rent, including two excellent meals in the dining room each day. You see what I mean the best of both worlds! Doreen Rimmer

SEFTON Council's Local Plan has moved a step nearer after the remaining hearings took place last week. The detailed proposal looks to shape the future of the borough’s housing and employment needs until 2030. An independent Inspector has just concluded a further two days of hearings in relation to four sites in Formby – land north and south of Formby Industrial Estate, Shorrocks Hill site and land at Liverpool Road. The Inspector heard evidence from site owners, Sefton Council, Formby Parish Council, local residents and other interested parties at a hearing in Bootle Town Hall. This marks a significant milestone in the progress

of the Local Plan as the Inspector indicated these are the last hearings. He is due to issue his final report by the end of December and the Local Plan should be approved in 2017. Cllr Daren Veidman, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Planning and Building Control, said: “The hearing marks an important milestone in a lengthy process of helping Sefton gear up for the challenge of meeting needs for new homes and businesses over the next 15 years. “The Inspector has heard much evidence from many people and we now look forward to receiving his report and completing the Local Plan. “As soon as we hear from the inspector we will of course let people know the outcome as we look to the future.”

Part Street residents complain of vandals returning to Eastbank House WEARY residents on Part Street say they are once again being plagued by vandals and anti social behaviour in the area just months after a dispersal order by Merseyside police attempted to curb bad behaviour in the town centre. A door has been smashed in at Eastbank House overnight on Saturday November 5 – and disgruntled residents on nearby Part Street have told the Champion they are getting sick of being woken at all hours by vandals and youths gathering in the area. One resident, who was reported in

the Champion earlier this year for confronting some of the youths, said: “we have had another window smashed in this weekend at Eastbank House. “We have gangs of youths, often with push bikes, hanging around Eastbank House, in the grounds of The Family Centre and in private gardens most evenings. It’s just not safe to go out after dark!” However no reports have been made to Merseyside Police regarding the latest incidents. Earlier this year the Champion reported how Merseyside Police

promised to wage war on yobs who were terrorising residents in and around the town centre. In one instance, which was caught on camera by a Part Street resident, a man is pelted with stones, spat at and verbally abused when he challenged a group of youths on Eastbank Street. Speaking anony- mously to The Champion, the resident who filmed the ordeal told our reporter: “I saw a group of five youths, one with a push bike, trespassing behind Eastbank House. “This was just the latest in several such incidents. In the past they have

stolen toys from the nursery and strewn them around the area, damaged trees and attempted to gain entry into the private garages. Cars have also been damaged. Whenever they have been confronted in the past, either by myself or my neighbours, they are always abusive, threatening, spitting and have no regard for people or private property. “On this occasion I took my video camera out with me primarily as a deterrent but also to provide useful footage for the police if matters got out of hand, as they did.” ollie.cowan@champnews.com

Sefton to back Sun paper ban Report by Tom Martin SEFTON Council has become the latest local authority in the region to encourage shop owners to stop selling The Sun newspaper. At a meeting on Thursday, November 17, a motion put forward by Bootle Councillor Gordon Friel has urged the council to “call on all retailers and vendors of newspapers in the Borough of Sefton to stop selling The S*n”. In recent months, Liverpool City Council and West Lancashire borough council have backed similar motions in response to a campaign group called Total Eclipse of the S*n. The group want to rid the tabloid from the streets of Merseyside due to their coverage of the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. The motion put forward by Cllr Friel reads: “On 15th April 1989, a disaster at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield led, ultimately, to the deaths of 96 innocent fans who had left home that morning to watch a football match. “Due to crowd control mis-management those fans, whose ages ranged from 10 to 67 years old, had the life crushed out of them. “Contrary to the facts, The S*n published a front page story with the banner headline ‘The Truth’ which contained blatant lies. “Here are just a couple of the lies: ‘Drunken Liverpool fans viciously attacked workers as they tried to rescue victims and police officers, firemen and ambulance crew were punched, kicked and urinated upon.’ This was printed in a British national newspaper! “For this reason the Council calls on all retailers and vendors of newspapers in the Borough of Sefton to stop selling The S*n. We applaud the group called ‘Total Eclipse of the S*n’ for their endeavours to rid Sefton of this newspaper

Warning over ‘DIY’ power of attorney A SOUTHPORT law firm is today reminding people about the need for specialist legal advice when creating a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), following a national investigation into ‘DIY ’ methods. Birchall Blackburn Law, which has seven offices across the North West, has joined a number

of organisations representing older and vulnerable people to raise serious concerns around the Government’s online tool for creating LPAs. An LPA is a powerful legal document which allows a person to appoint trusted individuals to make important decisions about care and finances on their behalf,

in the event of a loss of mental capacity through an accident or illness such as dementia. In May 2014, the Government’s Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) launched its online LPA tool, which it claims allows people to create the documents without the need for professional advice from a solicitor.

COUNCIL tax charged by Sefton Council has risen by 37.70% in real terms since 1996-97 according to a new mobile app. That is according to a TaxPayers’ Alliance report which can be found on the pressure group’s new free App. The App also includes the 2016 report Councillors’ Allowances which found that in 2014-15, Sefton paid a £8,605 basic allowance to councillors. An additional £25,815 was given to the council leader. To pay all the councillors, including expenses the total cost was £760,193 in 2014-15. People who download the App will also be able to find out that between 2013 and 2015 Sefton paid out £350,065 in compensation. The programme shows that Sefton had nine employees on more than £100,000, one employee on more than £150,000 in 2013-14. The authority was not able to provide any information on how many works of art it holds. According to the TaxPayers’ Alliance as of April 1 2014 Sefton

The TaxPayers’ Alliance have released a new App

owned: 6 golf courses, 35 car parks, four leisure centres, two farms, one theatre, five pubs, one restaurant, four shopping centres, 58 shops and two hotels. The App says Sefton gave trade unions 1,271 square foot of office space in 2014. Users of the site can see that in 2012-13 Sefton had total liabilities of £502,336, which is

equivalent to £1,835 per person or 74% of the council’s assets. John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance has said that anyone with a smartphone or tablet can now examine the performance of their own council and decide for themselves if councils are delivering value for taxpayers’ hard earned money.

HEALTH commissioners from Southport, Formby and West Lancashire are encouraging people this self-care week (November 1420 ) to be aware of how they can look after themselves this winter and to examine their options should they become ill. By keeping fit and healthy, individuals can take control of their own health, manage minor illnesses and effectively manage long term conditions. If you do need further help, think carefully and examine your options available across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire. Think about using NHS 111 for advice as they can direct you to the appropriate service. Go to your local chemist for advice if you need it, they can offer assistance on minor ailments and common illnesses. Claire Heneghan, chief nurse of NHS West Lancashire CCG said: “It’s important that people know when and how they can treat themselves and when they should seek further advice. By taking simple steps to look after yourself this winter, you can have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing.” Dr Robert Caudwell, chair of NHS

Report by Ollie Cowan Southport and Formby CCG, said: “When it comes to treating minor ailments and illnesses, it’s important to examine your options. You can get plenty of advice from your local chemist as well as on the NHS Choices website. Remember, the accident and emergency departments and ambulance services are for life-threatening conditions. By selecting the right option, you can help the NHS to direct their focus to the patients who need it the most.” The week compliments the national Stay Well This Winter campaign, encouraging people to look after themselves during the winter months – reminding them to see a pharmacist if they need advice on managing cough orcold symptoms; and for older people, a reminder to keep warm during the winter months by putting on an extra layer or turning up their heat. More information on how everyone can use self-care to improve their health and wellbeing is available on the NHS Choices website: www.nhs.uk.

Airline bosses launch competition to design new Boeing 737 livery THE AIRLINE Blue Air, which has made Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) their newest European base, has launched a competition for someone to design the new livery for their 189 seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft that will be based at Liverpool next year. Blue Air are keen to become Liverpool’s airline and are already working with local organisations to help in their recruitment for up to 35 new, direct, local employees. The ’design-a-livery ’ competition is another way in which the airline wants to become part of the Liverpool City Region and having shortlisted what they believe are the top three designs, Blue Air will then ask the public to vote for the winning design to make it a truly local desicion. The Liverpool liveried aircraft will operate on Blue Air’s new routes from LJLA to Rome, Milan, Hamburg and Alicante and one lucky individual who comes up with the best design, will have this recreated on the aircraft fuselage to be seen by thousands of passengers at LJLA, at airports in Europe and in the skies above Merseyside too. As well as seeing their design appear on the aircraft, the winner of the competition will also receive two free return flights from Liverpool to any Blue Air destination. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is working closely with Blue Air on this competition and has set up a link on the homepage of the Airport’s website

LJLA’s ceo Andrew Cornish (centre) celebrating with Blue Air’s chief operating officer Tudor Constantinescu (far left) and ceo Gheorghe Racaru (far right)

www.liverpoolairport.comfrom where budding aircraft livery designers can download an aircraft template on which to complete their design and send in their entry. Entrants must be 18 or over and the closing date for the competition is November 30. Robin Tudor, head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented: “This is

a fantastic opportunity for someone to have their idea for an aircraft livery become reality and to be seen by thousands of people at home and abroad. “Blue Air really want to be a part of the City Region and for passengers to think of them as their airline. Painting their aircraft with a livery unique to their operations here at Liverpool is a great way to help achieve this.”

Yacht race raises funds for stroke club A marathon yacht race has helped to raise a grand total of £2,700 for Southport Stroke Club. Officials were on hand to receive the much needed funding after resort duo Paul Swainson and Ian Hopkins decided to take on the West Lancashire 24 Hour Yacht Race earlier this year. The funding will go towards helping support vital services for stroke victims in and around the town. Paul Swainson told The Champion: “We are both keen sailors and our aim was to go out and sail the whole event without stopping which we did! “The race started in medium wind but unfortunately it dropped in strength through the night and

Animal sanctuary in ‘buy a bale’ plea Report by Louisa Austin

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

CHRISTMAS PARTY NIGHT

AS the temperature continues to drop, Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, in Holmswood is appealing for people to ‘buy a bale.’ The charity desperately needs hay and straw for many of its residents and the amount required increases throughout the colder months. A spokesperson for the sanctuary said: “The amount of hay and straw the sanctuary goes through in winter is immense. “This year we are asking if you would like to support our donkeys, ponies and goats by “buying a bale.” “It costs approximately £3,400 annually in hay and straw for animals in our care. “Helping to support the resident animals in this way over the winter period will free up our already

stretched funds to allow us to continue helping more animals that need our care over the upcoming festive period.” For more information, or to offer your help, you can call the Woodlands team on 01704 823293.

Bump of Churchtown, Southport’s only Private Baby Scanning Studio, opened its doors on Saturday 12th November 2016 Rachel Savva, the owner says: “We felt there was a real need to provide expectant mothers with the opportunity to have a positive relaxed bonding experience with their new baby that could also be shared with siblings, grand parents and friends. Set in a lovely grade II listed building our calming studio has everything you would need to achieve this”. We are perfectly placed in the village of Churchtown to serve Southport, Formby, Ormskirk, West Lancashire, Liverpool, Chorley and Preston. The scans normally take around 15-30 minutes but sometimes baby may need encouragement to move. A stroll around the lovely shops, nearby botanical

gardens or even a quick visit to the one of the local tearooms has been known to move the most stubborn of babies.

It is not only the Whooper swans and thousands of adults that like to visit WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre at this time of year, it is also a great time for schools to study seasonal changes and learn about migration.

Laura continues: “Being local we have aalso been able to take advantage of the children being dropped off by parents at c the th centre which is a big saving on hiring a coach – this is a great added benefit that t the centre offers.”

Burscough St. John’s CE Primary School is one of the local schools that visit Martin Mere over the winter and last week, 17 Year 2 and Year 3 children came along to experience winter at the centre. Between November and March, Martin Mere offer schools guided learning sessions all about the amazing migration of the Whooper Swans. Over 2,000 of them come from Iceland to spend the winter at Martin Mere. Laura Belger from the Burscough St. John’s CE Primary School, said: “This is the 3rd year we have visited Martin Mere – of all the trips we do, this is my favourite as it is so hands on and the children absolutely love it. At school, at this time of year, we do science based on seasonal changes in our local area so I feel that it is really important to learn about migration and why the swans come all this way to our home town for winter. This morning we have been in the hide, using binoculars and looking at the swans, done the incredible journeys workshop and

A SEFTON-BASED housing firm has joined forces with Veterans Groups from Sefton and Liverpool to help put a roof over the head of ex-members of the armed forces. One Vision Housing (OVH) will be providing specialised accommodation to local veterans when they are referred by the groups Liverpool Veterans and Veterans in Sefton. OVH, which is part of the Sovini Group, will then allocate a suitable property to them, which may include specially adapted accommodation to support those living with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mobility issues. The Sovini Group has supported the Forces Community for a number of years, including taking part in the BBC DIY SOS Veterans Special, offering employment opportunities to exservice personnel and refurbishing the Sefton Veterans Project’s office.

Report by Tom Martin Sovini has also achieved the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant in recognition for their support of the Forces Community. Roy Williams, Chief Executive of One Vision Housing, said: “We’re honoured to be working alongside Liverpool Veterans on this housing project. It’s a pleasure to be able to support an organisation that supports those who have sacrificed so much to serve our country.” James Culshaw, Veterans Housing Officer at Liverpool Veterans, said: “We are really proud to be working in association with One Vision Housing as we aim to provide all ex-service personnel with housing. “I hope this encourages other large organisations to support us in the way that OVH have.”

Animal centre in desperate bid to win community funding grant Report by Louisa Austin

201 7

FRESHFEILD Animal Rescue have this week entered a national competition which could see them receive a grant of up to £25,000. The Aviva Community fund, part of the Aviva insurance Group will give grants to community projects that are seeking to make a difference in their local area. The rescue centre has been fundraising and campaigning to raise money for a vets room at the centre for a few months and are hoping they will be considered for the competition. The competition is based on the number of votes each project receives and the projects that receive the highest amount of votes will automatically be entered into the competition finals. Debbie Hughes, spokesperson for the centre said: “The centre has been transforming the lives of animals for almost 40 years and our mission is the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abused, abandoned and unwanted animals. Some animals will be admitted by us with only very minimal vet care requirements, but sadly many of our animals have been victims of cruelty or neglect. “The usual case is for the animals we admit to require lengthy and expensive vet care. “Veterinary bills are our biggest expense by far and as highlighted in the Champion recently, our plan to save funds is to set up a small veterinary room, converting two rooms in our main building into a surgery and treatment area however this will cost about £25,000. “We would urge people to vote for us so that we have a chance of winning a grant

that will help us to reach our target. “Once we're up and running, we'll save a minimum of £30,000 pounds a year. “With the help of our fantastic local vets we have drawn up a list of equipment needed for the vet room and these inlcude an operating table, light fixed theatre, scrub sink, microscope, steriliser and neutering and spay kits for the animals. “An on-site vet room at Freshfields Animal Rescue will be a great investment in our future, and in the future of our local

community. Each person can cast up to ten votes after a very simple registration process and the voting period is open until Friday, November 18th.

BLUENOTE GUITAR SCHOOL Rob Fennah, the man behind the smash hit play Twopence to Cross the Mersey has opened his very own, Bluenote Guitar School, in Crosby. Rob said: “I began playing ukulele at the age of five before progressing to guitar. By eighteen I was living the pop star life, having hit records and playing at some of the world’s most prestigious venues like the Sydney Opera House, Australia and the Budokan Hall in Japan. Everything I’ve done, and am still doing, is down to learning to play guitar”. In a musical career spanning over 40 years, Rob (57) has also composed themes for TV and Film. But in recent years it is theatre he is best known for having adapted Helen Forrester’s most famous book, Twopence to Cross the Mersey, into both a successful musical and straight stage play. Rob added: “I began teaching when my first band, Buster, split up in the late 70’s and I grew to love it.

INSTANT DECISION

A SOUTHPORT woman who sufferers from Huntingtons Disease is holding a special charity night later this month in memory of one of her fellow sufferers, who sadly passed away two years ago. Kirsty Skinsley, a 27-year-old from Southport suffers from the debilitating terminal hereditary degenerative neurological disease – but says she is determined to make the most of things by raising as much money as possible to help fund research into fighting Huntingtons. The charity night she plans to hold will be in memory of 17 year old Ellie Mae Morgan who passed away from Junior Huntingtons in 2014. Ellie’s mum Sam is supporting Kirsty’s campaign and is even taking part in a special HD calendar Kirsty produced in January. On Saturday November 26 Kirsty hopes to welcome as many people as possible to the Southport Masonic Hall on Dukes Street from 3pm for a day of live music and entertainment. Kirsty told The Champion: “I have Huntingtons disease which is a terminal hereditary degenerative neurological condition. “I got it from my dad and my brother has it also – I'm fifth generation in my family and I had to find out when I was 20, having had symptoms since he age of 19. “As of a few years ago I started getting involved in a lot of charity work – a guy on Facebook named Kris King was doing a huge charity event that was

I ended up doing over a 100 miles which isn't much for the average person but for me with my symptoms and medication it meant the world to me. “I ended up winning a your heroes award and attended the ceremony with my loved ones. it was awesome and gave me the charity bug. “Kris King didn't stop there.

NORMALLY I emerge from the NEC searching for my next classic car, but this year it was lozenges and a comfier pair of shoes. The amount of walking and talking reflects how vast the Classic Motor Show has become, and why car nuts from right across the North West are prepared to drive two hours to see it. Think 2,500 old cars stretched out over five enormous halls, the chance to meet the celebs of the motoring world and stand after stand offering parts for sale, technical advice and swish gadgets to accompany you on your next drive. Here in the UK there’s nothing quite like our annual NEC bash. You’d think that going to a show that’s roughly the same every year for the best part of a decade would mean I’d have seen it all by now, but each visit always chucks up cars I didn’t even know existed. How about a Volvo P18000S convertible, a ragtop version of Ford’s Cortina Lotus, a Bond Bug in white rather than the ubiquitous orange, or a stretch limo made from, erm, a Skoda Estelle? My particular favourite this year was the rather poshly named Rover 90 Drop Head Coupé by Mulliner Park Ward – essentially a P4 turned into a stylish convertible by Pininfarina and then coachbuilt by the people behind a generation of Rolls-Royces. Only two were ever made, and one of them was there this year. I’ll even put up with rubbish food, the eye-watering £12 a day to park, and the misery of queuing on the M42 because there is nowhere quite like the NEC show for taking the pulse of Britain’s love of old cars and discovering that it’s very much alive and well.

Burr hails ‘outstanding’ performance but still wants to boost squad Report by Ron Ellis SOUTHPORT manager Steve Burr hailed his team’s performance against Maidstone as “outstanding” and reckons it confirms that the Yellows are moving in the right direction. He said: “I really felt there were goals to be had. “Our football was outstanding and I was delighted to have got the three points. “I love goals, they create excitement and the supporters can see that we are creating chances and we will soon give somebody a tanking. “We worked on the free kick routine in training last week and the first corner we got it came off which is always pleasing from a coach’s point of view. “I was concerned we’d be a bit jaded after the effort we put in on last Monday against Fleetwood but to a man they did very well and the fitness levels are excellent.” Burr added that he was concerned about lack of player availability at the moment. He said: “From the back of the programme it looks like we have about 300 players on the Players celebrate Southport’s staff but we only have a squad opening goal. of 18 players available to us at “Things are starting to take off the moment! and we can achieve something but “With such a small number, it’s the main emphasis this season is sometimes difficult to keep the to stay in this division. momentum going but it’s import“The players are working very ant to keep it going, we’re hard. There’s a great atmosphere enjoying life at the moment as here. there’s a good atmosphere about “It is very exciting to be part of the place.

We’re “If I can be here for a long period delighted the lads are doing well of time, I’ll know I’ve achieved and the better they do the more something.’ likely we are to keep them.

Jamie Allen (far left) watches his shot go in the net for Southport’s first goal. Picture by Julia Urwin.

Set piece special sets Port on way to third league win in a row Report by Ron Ellis Southport 3 Maidstone United 2 SOUTHPORT completed their third league win in a row, and the result flattered the visitors who were comprehensively outplayed in an exciting attacking game. The first goal came after just five minutes and was a perfect example of a set-piece from the training ground paying dividends. Jordan Lussey lofted a corner to the far post where Liam Nolan was waiting to head it straight back into the box where Jamie Allen collected it, swivelled and steered it past a helpless Lee Worgan in the visitors’ goal. Playing with verve and confidence, the Sandgrounders looked dangerous every time they came forward. The second goal didn’t arrive until just on half time and it was another corner, taken again by Lussey straight to Liam Nolan who slammed it to the back of the net. Six minutes into the second half it was 30, Allen collected a clever weighted pass from Lussey, ghosted past both a defender and the keeper before steering the ball in from a narrow angle. Maidstone reduced the deficit in the 52nd minute. A cross from Bobby-Joe Taylor eluded everyone in the area, reaching Yemi Odubade unmarked at the far side and he gave Magnus Norman no chance with a firm shot.

Jamie Allen cuts through the defence to score his second goal.

Even so, The Port never looked like losing and a penalty in the final seconds put away by Taylor, led to the misleading scoreline. It was awarded by referee Sam Allison, who was the best referee seen at the ground this season. The victory lifted The Yellows up to 18th place in the National league table, their highest position of the season so far. After last night’s FA Cup replay at Fleetwood, the Yellows travel to 10th placed

Boreham Wood on Saturday. Next Tuesday they make the short trip to local rivals Chester who are in 12th position after gaining a late draw at Tranmere on Saturday. The next match at the Merseyrail Community Stadium is on Saturday November 26 when Braintree Town will be the visitors, followed by Solihull Moors on Tuesday, November 29. It means a hectic schedule for the team with six matches in 18 days.

Supporters coach travel available to Chester THERE is no coach going to Boreham Wood on Saturday. The coach to Chester on

Tuesday November 22 will leave the Merseyrail Community Stadium at 5.15pm with pick-ups at the Arion,

the Crown and the George. The fare for this trip is £10 for all members and £13 non-members. Places on the

coaches can be booked in the Trust office on match days or by texting Bill Sloan on 07952 056385.
