BATTLE FIRM BOSS BREAKS SILENCE ON TOWN CENTRE OPS Report by Ollie Cowan

We’re only here for the beer... visitors flock to Southport Beer Street Festival

Resort’s first Beer Street Festival is huge hit

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

THE boss of a private security firm hired to tackle anti-social behaviour in Southport, has broken his silence on the company’s operations in the town. Battle Investigations, who are paid by a group of anonymous local traders to patrol the town centre day and night, have come under fire for failing to help stem a tide of vandalism and yobbish behaviour plaguing the town centre. Now, despite a policy of not commenting on their work, Battle Investigations has issued a statement saying the firm has been working strenuously over recent weeks to try and curb the number of anti-social incidents. A spokesperson for Battle told the Champion: “We have taken the unusual step of issuing a statement to allay the fears of the community in Southport that Battle Investigations and our Tactical Security Unit are failing to support the businesses that have joined our patrol scheme. “We were operating in Southport for five years before launching a scheme in February 2016, at the request of Southport Business Watch. Upwards of 45 businesses across

Mould, Damp or Salt on the walls?

Almost every homeowner at some time in their lives, experiences damp problems. Mildew, efflorescence (salts on the surface of the wall) and blistering plaster, means it needs treating as soon as possible and the plaster replacing with a “breathable” alternative. BKM Mannesmann UK ltd has a simple but technologically advanced treatment system for rising and penetrative damp. The process protects inside or outside walls of all construction types and materials. The technology is developed from extensive experience in Germany and is now available in your area. The BKM product microscopically coats all the pores in the material,

creating a hydrophobic barrier in all types of brick, stone-work, masonry, cement and lime render. It can be “gravity-fed” or pressure infused into the walls, dependent upon the condition of the wall. BKM also has an external breathable wall protection application, which seals all types of render, salt impregnated brick-work. Lime based paints and render can also be protected under the 25-year Guarantee. Lucas Maszkowski, Regional Director for BKM Mannesmann UK ltd, says, “Thanks to this publication, there are many people in Lancashire and Merseyside who have recently installed our system and are extremely satisfied with the results.”

Cannabis farms targeted in two-week police operation POLICE have launched a two-week crackdown on cannabis farms and will be targeting parts of Sefton and north Liverpool. The operation started on Thursday, November 24, and will run for 14 days and officers will be giving advice to residents and traders on what to look out for if they believe someone is growing cannabis in their community. Officers on foot will be assisted by the Dog Section, with the National Police Air Service providing aerial assistance with the police helicopter to spot suspect properties. Police will visit retailers such as DIY stores and garden centres to raise awareness of the types of purchases made by criminals looking to set up cannabis farms. Outlets selling hydroponic equipment, commonly used for cannabis cultivation, will also be targeted. Officers will speak with letting agencies and landlords, as many cannabis growers take advantage of short-term tenancy agreements to grow the drug. Unoccupied properties could be subject to utilities being disconnected and other partner agencies will be educated on the signs a cannabis factory is in a property. Detective Chief Inspector Steve Richardson said: “Criminal groups involved in the cultivation of cannabis are usually involved in other serious organised crime and use violence, intimidation and exploitation of vulnerable people to keep their illicit businesses going.

Report by Tom Martin “Disputes over the supply of cannabis have been responsible for violent assaults and even shootings. “Gangs will often rent residential and industrial properties in the heart of our communities. “During the next fortnight, we will aim to disrupt the activity of criminal gangs who are intent on bringing these highly dangerous farms into our communities. “We will have officers on the ground and use the latest technology available to us to find cannabis farms and execute warrants. “Last year our Cannabis Dismantling Team seized more than 25,000 plants from in excess of 330 cannabis farms, so on average our officers are attending around one farm every single day. The growing of cannabis brings dangers to neighbouring properties because cannabis farms pose a very serious fire risk. “There will generally be a number of hot lamps hooked up to dangerously overloaded electricity sockets as well as an extensive watering system. “Nobody wants to live next door to these houses and we would ask that if you believe someone is using a property for this purpose, please tell us so we can take action and find those responsible.” Anyone with any information can call police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

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. Teaching enables me to play every day, all different styles too, from classical to heavy rock. I also teach

bass, uke and a bit of mandolin. I’m not one for too much music theory though; my emphasis is on performance and, for those younger students who may wish to pursue it, how to make a career in the world of entertainment”. For further information visit: www.bluenoteguitarschool.com.

Security firm breaks silence on operations From page 1

“We make no extra charge for this as we too can see Councillor Barton’s vision to preserve Southport’s heritage and believe that in these times of austerity, everyone should pull together. “During our service suspicious persons have been removed from clients’ private property. Whilst doing so details/descriptions are taken for later use if damage is subsequently discovered. The business then receives details of activity at their location. “We have dealt with 14 incidents that fall under the term ASB (antisocial behaviour) and of those, two are being progressed, with our assistance, through Civil Courts for the recoveries of monies incurred to repair the damage caused. This is our preferred option of resolution as it provides our client with an end result. “Incidents witnessed and recorded against Community assets are reported to Merseyside Police through our normal channels. “We are very aware of the widely reported incidents in Kings Gardens and Pleasureland property recently. Our officers routinely disperse two known gangs of youths that frequent four main locations one of which is Kings Gardens.

Punch Tarmeys aims to be a knock-out success very excited to be opening Punch Tarmey’s as part of my development portfolio. It means a lot to me to be able to integrate my family history and such an interesting story of my great grandfather, into an amazing pub.” Andrew ’s team has worked with one of the world’s leading specialists in Irish pubs and an award-winning pub design company to develop a new pub concept for Southport. He continued: “Punch Tarmey ’s marks an important step in the future of pub experiences in the Southport area.”

with the youths so they know we know them. Vandalism is committed in a second and is easy to miss. It should be noted that some perpetrators of ASB are often abusive and violent and we advise the public NOT to tackle any issues they witness but to call the police on 101 or 999. “Battle Investigations and our Tactical Security unit are providing over and above the service our clients signed up for. We have been providing intelligence and security in the UK and overseas for in excess of 15 years and we enjoy a 100% satisfaction rate from our present client base.” Councillor David Barton, said: “The incidents of ASB are far lower than they have been and we have known for a long time that these incidents were being committed by a small number of unidentified people who have now clearly been identified. “Along with the extra visible police patrols our neighbourhood officers have been making, it would appear the tide is turning in the residents' favour. “I am very grateful to Merseyside Police for the extra patrols and to Battle Security for continuing with their presence despite constant criticism from various sources.” l Festive lights targeted by vandals - p7

Basketball coach honoured in special memorial match Report by Ollie Cowan A MEMORIAL basketball clash has been held in Southport to honour the memory of a much loved local coach. Ian Halfpenny dedicated twenty years of his life to coaching both senior and junior basketball teams across Southport and the Fylde coast before he sadly passed away in June at the age of 53. One of Ian’s greatest accolades was playing a huge role in the coaching and influence of former England international Chris Haslam. Following his sudden passing earlier this year his friends, family and former teammates at the Southport Smartys Basketball team decided to get together at the YMCA sports club on Houghton Street and play a special match in his memory. The team went up against a West Lancs Warriors side and despite a close game, Ian’s side emerged victorious with a score of 53-52. Organiser and friend Manny Ranat said: “Ian spent an incredible 20 years coaching basketball to senior and junior teams across the area - not just in Southport but in Preston and the Fylde coast and won two titles during his training. “Ian also played for Southport Smartys and even took time to work on the committee at Southport YMCA. He coached players that went on to play

Top that! Beer Street Festival ‘awesome!’ From page 1 The event featured as many as 75 different beers and real ales from local breweries to national concoctions – as well as live music performances and even a collection for the Southport Foodbank. Local real ale enthusiast Chris Livingstone had high praise for the event, saying: “This weekend has been awesome. I'm not sure what was best: The beer selection, the staff, or the atmosphere! “This is definitely an event that Southport should be proud of. A huge thank you to everyone involved.” And the very tired but elated Tap and Bottles owners added that they could not quite believe how successful the three day festival had been. Luke Randles and Julian Burgess, who along with their team at the Cambridge Arcade

“This however would not detract from our officers dealing with an incident if it arose, although Pleasureland is not an area we patrol nightly. “For further clarity our officers would always deal with any incident they are aware of, whether the location was part of our scheme or not. “If we had to deal with an incident at the same location more than twice, you can expect us to have a conversation with the location owner about continuance as it would be deemed unfair to have a non-contract location freeloading off contracted clients. “ASB is notoriously difficult to combat and can take months for results to be seen. Officers have to be around all the time the vandals have only to strike once. We use a mixture of intelligence and covert activity, often tracking repeat offenders on their journey through a town and to this end have caught youths kicking shop windows as they pass. “We also use a disruption method by engaging

from South Wales to watch the game and be a part of the tribute too “In the group photo Jack held up Ian’s vest. "Ian was a great friend and he would have loved to see the boys back on the court, although he would have questioned our fitness!” Kristjan Zadziuk, another friend of Ians, said he was honoured to take part in the match as a fitting tribute. He said: “This was my first time playing basketball in The team who turned out in memory of Ian Halfpenny (inset) Southport for over 20 years. “Ian was the man who encouraged me to keep nationally and internationally, including former playing when I was terrible at 15 and it was an honEngland international Chris Haslam. “After Ian died in June we organised a memorial our to be part of the match. “It was great to see everyone again and it was just game which took place last Friday (November 25) like old times – although I was hurting a bit the at the YMCA. “It was a great turn-out and Ian’s sister and morning after the game! “Rest in peace Ian.” nephew, Diane and Jack Butterworth, travelled up

AN IRISH theme pub is set to open its doors for the first time this week. Officially open to the public from December 2, Punch Tarmeys is the brainchild of Bold Hotel owner, Andrew Mikhail. It will be based at the former Mulligan’s bar on the corner of Lord Street and Union Street and last minute renovations are being carried out ahead of the big opening on Friday. Punch Tarmey’s is named after Andrew’s great grandfather, Michael Tarmey, who came to Merseyside from Ireland in 1902 as a champion fighter. Mr Mikhail told the Champion that he hopes his new venture be a classically designed pub with more than a nod to his great grandfather. Andrew said: “I am

“These youths are all known to our officers. Youths can only be dispersed if they are committing a nuisance. “It should be noted that for a number of weeks, security has been stationed in Kings Gardens from 6pm onwards that has no connection to us and is funded by a Council-related operation. “Youths are drawn to that area and to the land surrounding Pleasureland where they ‘sit off’ eatfood. ing fast Pleasureland property is a particular draw for ‘bored’ youths as it provides easy access as some fencing is of poor repair and in some areas hedgerows have been taken out giving direct access to property. The youths have previously been drawn to the area because of burning materials on site and rubble readily accessible from skips which our officers have taken from youths. “Pleasureland employ their own site security each night and they patrol regularly.

Motorists urged to freeze out thieves MOTORISTS across Sefton have been reminded by police not to leave their keys in the ignition while de-frosting their vehicle following a number of thefts. With the weather getting colder, opportunist thieves have already been targeting unattended vehicles which have been left to warm up by owners.

Most recently, cars that were left insecure while owners deiced the windscreen, warmed the car interior, opened driveway gates or even went back inside their house have been stolen. All the offences have happened early in the morning, usually when the owner is preparing to drive to work and have gone back into their

house to get something. Detective Superintendent Richie Salter said: “Leaving your car, even for a few seconds, presents the opportunity to thieves to steal your car. “These criminals are targeting early mornings when people are de-frosting their cars so do not be fooled that your car is safe left running.”

We’ve ‘turned the corner’ say Beales bosses THE FUTURE of Beales Department store in Southport appears to be safe after the company announced it has finally made a recovery in profits. The announcement follows the J.E. Beale chain being acquired by English Rose Partnerships in 2015 and now the company’s chairman says the business has ‘turned a corner.’ The upturn in profits is expected to signal a secure future for all 26 of the chain’s department stores – including the site on Lord Street. The group's trading company (J.E. Beale plc) announced an operating profit of £338,000, after exceptional credits of nearly £2.5 million. These arose as a result of the successful Company Voluntary Arrangement, which has enabled Beales to withdraw from a number of unprofitable leases. Losses at the holding company Beale Limited fell from £16.3 million Beales on Lord Street

Stuart Lyons, the Chairman, said the group had been overwhelmed by support from its customers. More than 7,000 had signed a petition to save the flagship store in Bournemouth and the shopping public continued to support Beales throughout the country. Mr Lyons thanked the Beales staff for their commitment, loyalty and expertise, describing them as the lifeblood of the company. “The last two years have been challenging and there will continue to be challenges ahead,” he said. “However, I believe Beales has now turned the corner and is on the path to recovery.”

Five arrested in swoop on ‘heavily fortified’ drugs den Report by Ollie Cowan FIVE people from Southport have been arrested following a Merseyside Police raid on a flat in Shakespeare Street. Officers made the arrests after they discovered a large quantity of what is believed to be cocaine and heroin during the swoop at an address above a furniture shop on Monday. The force’s Matrix team attended the site at around 11.35am and recovered the drugs after they forced entry to a first floor window. Police described the drugs den as being ‘heavily fortified.’ A 41-year-old woman, a 54year-old woman, a 45-year-old man, and a 40-year-old man from Southport and a 53-yearold man of no fixed address

Matrix team police officers raid the fortified flat above a furniture shop in Shakespeare Street

were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs (Class A). All five were taken to a police station in Merseyside to be interviewed. Sergeant Stuart McLoughlin said: “Merseyside Police treats all drug supply seriously and the discovery of this cocaine and heroin has significantly disrupted the supply of these

drugs in our communities. “The fact we have prevented drugs from reaching the streets, where they fuel so much other crime, is extremely satisfying. “Criminals are making considerable money through the sale of drugs, made on the back of the misery drugs bring to our communities. “Today ’s action shows the force will do all it can to take

action against those who line their pockets to the detriment of our society.” Anyone who has any information about those involved in the production or supply of drugs, is urged to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. “We will act on all information.

A cry for Lancashire Day (a day early!) SOUTHPORT’S Town Crier led the Lancashire Day celebrations in the resort last weekend to mark the town’s historic links with the Red Rose county. Darryll Counsel, the official Town Crier of Southport, read the official Lancashire Proclamation on Chapel Street at noon on November 26, to mark Lancashire Day across the region. He also made a Lancashire Day announcement outside the Atkinson Arts Centre. Darryll said: “I met some lovely people when I read the Lancashire Day Proclamation out twice in Southport. “It was a day early but It was a real honour and it was nice to see the Friends of Real Lancashire group there too.” A spokesperson for the Friends of Lancashire said: “The official Lancashire Day was Sunday, November 27, when Lancastrians celebrated their county day throughout the County Palatine from the river Duddon in the north to the river Mersey in the south. “On this day in 1295 the first elected representatives from Lancashire were called to Westminster by King Edward the

First to attend what later became known as ‘The Model Parliament’ and became the start of democracy in this country. “The Lancashire Day Proclamation was read out by Town Criers throughout the county, including Darryll to rouse regional pride while later on in the day Lancastrians joined in the loyal toast to The Queen, Duke of Lancaster.”

Hospital visiting times change so patients can have lunch in peace! CHANGE is on the menu for visitors to Southport and Ormskirk hospitals.

Visitors who come in to assist patients with meals are still welcome from midday, they are just asked to identify themselves to a member of staff on arrival.

The Salvation Army perform on Chapel Street

Sally Army band keep up a festive tradition dating back 50 years... FOR many, Christmas would just not be the same without the annual appearance of the Salvation Army band in Southport Town Centre. And this year will be no different, with the group revealing they will be performing a selection of festive favourites on Chapel Street on three weekend dates between Saturday, December 3 and Saturday, December 17. It is a tradition which has spanned an impressive fifty years in the town. A spokesperson for the Salvation Army said: “Each Saturday (3, 10, 17), between 10am and 2pm, the band will be at the junction of Chapel Street and Tulketh Street playing non-stop carols, including those requested by Christmas shoppers. “We will of course also be collecting for our Christmas Appeal and we know that Southport shoppers want to give generously to the work of the Salvation Army in our community.

Dates announced for carol events in town centre “The assistance that we give in financial terms and gifts of furniture and clothing has grown in recent years. “The biggest growth in the last 18 months has been in Fuel Aid where we provide emergency aid to assist families and individuals with fuel bills. “This is funded by gifts from the public as well as our other work which includes assisting other agencies including the Southport Soup Kitchen and the Trussell Trust Foodbank. “So during the next three Saturdays look out for the Salvation Army band as you dash around the shops and pause for a while just to remember what Christmas is all about - and don’t be afraid to ask the band to play your favourite carol!”

Do you have a loved one ne or friend who may be vulnerable this Christmas?? Why not consider a lifeline alarm to help support them? You can even arrange to pay for the service as a gi!, on their behalf.

Cricket coup for town

LANCASHIRE will return to Southport & Birkdale Cricket Club next June to play a top County Championship Division 1 match against 2016 Champions Middlesex. The match is the second in a three-year staging agreement awarded by the County to the Trafalgar Road club earlier this year and will take place over four days, beginning on Friday, June 9. This year Lancashire played Durham at Southport and just lost their game on the final afternoon. The fixture drew record crowds and players, including current England star Ben Stokes, were praised for taking on some of S&B’s junior cricketers after the match had finished. Former England ODI captain, Paul Collingwood, also praised the wicket live on Sky TV, and said it was the best he had

Cricket fans watching Lancashire v Durham hosted by S&B last season

played on during the season. S&B chairman Tony Elwood said: "Notwithstanding the comfort of our three-year staging agreement with Lancashire, we are delighted that they continue to show con-

fidence in us as their firstchoice outground and the confirmation of this prestigious fixture is a just reward for all of the hard work our volunteers have put in over the past few years.

“We very much look forward to welcoming the County Champions and their supporters in June and if they want to know what a Southport welcome is like, they only have to contact this year's visitors, Durham. “We know that Lancashire fans enjoy coming to Southport and hope they will continue to support us.The match is earlier than this year’s, on account of the Open Golf later in the Summer, but provided the sun shines we can look forward to another great game at Trafalgar Road." S&B has been hosting First Class cricket since 1959. This will be Middlesex’s third visit to Trafalgar Road. They lost to Ken Grieves’ Lancashire side in 1963 but took their revenge in 1981, thanks in the main to Graham Barlow’s career-best first-class score of 177.

Yobs strike again in town centre, this time targeting festive decorations on Lord Street and Chapel Street Report by Ollie Cowan CONTRACTORS are busy trying to repair broken Christmas lights along Chapel Street and Lord Street after they were vandalised overnight on Sunday. The festive lighting, which adorn trees along both major shopping streets, were damaged after unknown individuals chose to cut the electrical wires leading up to them. It’s also believed that they unsuccessfully tried to pull down some of the lighting strips. Although disappointed by the yobs actions, BID bosses say they will not rest until they have all been fixed again. Insurance will pay out to cover the cost of the repairs. Hugh Evans, CEO of the Southport BID said: “We’ve been made aware that the lights on several trees along Lord Street have been

deliberately vandalised and we’ve arranged for them to be repaired as soon as possible. “It’s disappointing especially in the context of the recent spate of vandalism that’s affected some of the businesses in our town. “We continue to work closely with police on extending our ‘Business Against Crime’ network to help reduce incidents like this being experienced within the town centre.”

NHS Trust meeting put back THE NEXT meeting of the directors of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust will be Wednesday December 21. The meeting will be held in the Clinical Education Centre at Southport and Formby District General

Babyballet stars put on their dancing shoes for Children In Need

Children get into the charity spirit

CHILDREN who attend Babyballet were kept busy dancing in their pyjamas to raise money for Children in Need. Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers who attend Babyballet Southport, Formby and Crosby classes were all invited to join their teachers to show off their moves while donating to BBC Children in Need. Manager of babyballet in the local area, Rebekah Clark, said: “We all had lots of fun while raising lots of money for such a good cause. “The youngsters all looked so snuggly in their pyjamas and onesies and ‘good toes, naughty toes’ has been so much fun in slippers! “The Babyballet stars and the grown up’s really got into the Children in Need spirit and I am so proud that we raised £248.58.” “Over the past four years Babyballet has raised a massive £1,499.43 for the charity and we are so proud.”

Philosophy in Pubs returns SOUTHPORT’S Philsophy In Pubs is to meet again with a lecture exploring nuclear fusion – energy which powers the sun and the stars. Philippa Browning, Professor of Astrophysics at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, Manchester University will be giving the lecture on December 5 at the Royal Clifton Hotel at 7.30pm. Professor Browning said: “Due to increasing energy demands, and difficulties with current sources

such fossil fuels, it is essential to develop new means to generate energy. “Nuclear fusion - which powers the Sun and stars - potentially provides large amounts of energy from small quantities of widelyavailable fuel, in a safe and reliable manner.” All are welcome to attend the Philosophy in Pubs event. Participant donation is £2. Further detail are available at southportpipslectures.blogspot.co.uk/.

★ ★ ★ Christmas Living Gifts ★ ★ ★

A NEW mental health hospital has been earmarked to be built in Southport. The Hesketh Centre currently serves the mental health needs of patients across the resort and the surrounding area, but bosses at the Mersey Care NHS Foundation say that it is time to complete a total overhaul and upgrade of services. They want to build a ‘super centre’ at the site of the former Southport Hospital on Scarisbrick New Road. Local residents have now been invited to share their views at public consultation events where proposals for the state-of-the-art facility will be revealed. The NHS Trust is proposing to rebuild its existing mental health unit on the former infirmary site, and once complete will move all services from the Hesketh Centre, Albert Road, there by 2019. The proposals will ensure the Southport and Formby areas have modern, fit for purpose inpatient mental health care integrated with outpatient services and community teams on one site. Consultation

A Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson said: “Mersey Care has ambitions to build two further hospitals like the recently opened Clock View centre, Walton, in Southport and Liverpool. “The Southport redevelopment will provide all of the beds we currently offer at the inpatient wards at the Boothroyd Unit and Hesketh Centre. Importantly it will provide all inpatients with their own

Former Southport infirmary site earmarked to replace Hesketh Centre if proposals get go-ahead individual en suite rooms to promote privacy and dignity. Therapy areas and access to safe inner courtyard gardens will help people’s recovery. “We are continuing to work with local authorities to try and convert our proposals into designs and plans we can share with all our stakeholders.” Mental health champion Councillor Paul Cummins said: “This is about improving mental health services for the people of Southport and Formby and I would urge local people to come along to the consultation sessions to find out more and give their views.” Two public consultations will take place. The first being held on Tuesday December 13 from 10am at the Hesketh Centre in Albert Road, while the second will be held on December 14 at the Boothroyd Unit on Scarisbrick New Road from the same time. Southport MP and former Mental health nurse John Pugh said: “This is clearly a welcome,needed and major development. “Hopefully we can now address the worrying waiting times for psychiatric treatment. My only caution is to point out that this is the second time I have seen plans for this site involving new mental health provision so though I welcome the plans , I will welcome the sight of construction even more.”

Advice sessions to be held at resort’s Byng House THE ROYAL British Legion’s Advice and Information Officer, Sarah Abbotson, will be available at Byng House next month to discuss face-to-face the many services the Legion can

offer to service men and women. The advice sessions will also include: signposting people to other welfare services, discussing membership with those

wanting to join the Legion and discussing any fundraising opportunities people may be interested in.Sarah will be at Byng House on Thursday December 1 and December 15.

Outbid by private health group NHS hospital trust loses out to Virgin

...and fails to win tender to run Southport & Formby community services Report by Ollie Cowan

officer at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “Last year the community services the Trust has provided since 2011 were put out to tender. “The Trust was very disappointed that NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) chose not to select our bid when they announced a shortlist of potential providers in March. “The Trust did reach the shortlisting phase for community services in Southport and Formby, however NHS Southport and Formby CCG announced earlier this month that we were unsuccessful in that bid also. “Our community-based staff provide excellent care to people in their homes and in clinics every day of the week. We value their hard work and dedication. “The Trust’s task now is to work

with the new providers to safely and successfully support staff in the months ahead and ensure our patients and their families continue to receive good quality care.” West Lancs MP Rosie Cooper blasted the move by NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to go with Virgin Care, describing it as a ‘slap in the face’ to local NHS providers. She said: “This entire process has been conducted without sufficient openness and transparency and without any obvious consideration to the future of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust.” “Now the contract has been awarded it is time for the CCG to open the books on this entire process.”

SOUTHPORT and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust bosses say they are ‘very disappointed’ to have lost out in the bidding process to run community health services in both West Lancashire and Southport and Formby. The Trust didn’t even make the shortlist of potential providers for the West Lancashire service, and now it has been announced that the contract has gone to a private healthcare group. Billionaire Richard Branson’s Virgin Care will take over community health services and urgent care services in West Lancs from April 1, 2017. In a double blow, the Trust has now discovered it has also lost the tender to run Southport and Formby Community Health Services which will transfer to Lancashire Care on May 1.

A JUDGE has demanded to know why a father and son, who broke into 13 churches in the Southport area, have not been charged with plotting to burgle. Gregory Hawkshaw and his 23-year-old son Danny Hawkshaw were due to be sentenced after admitting two burglaries with 11 more taken into consideration. The sentencing had to be adjourned however as Hawkshaw, jnr, of Sandbrook Road, Ainsdale, who was on bail failed to attend Liverpool Crown Court and a warrant was consequently issued for his arrest. His 45-year-old dad, of no fixed address, appeared by video link from prison, and his lawyer Nick Archer asked for sentence on him to be deferred as “he believes he can recover the majority of substantive items that were taken.” But Judge Robert Warnock told him, “There is no prospect whatsoever of a deferred sentence in this case.”

By our Court Reporter The two men have pleaded guilty to breaking into Ainsdale Methodist Church on Liverpool Road overnight on September 30 this year and stealing two laptops and burgling St John’s Anglican Church, also in Liverpool Road, on October 10, when they took a £300 laptop. The other offences took place in Scarisbrick, Halsall, Southport and Ainsdale and hundreds of pounds worth of cash, laptops, projectors and televisions were taken. Judge Warnock demanded an explanation from the Crown Prosecution Service as to why the pair were only charged with two burglaries and the rest taken into consideration instead of facing a conspiracy to burgle charge. “It doesn’t make any sense to me,” he said. The case was adjourned until December 9.

SCHOOLCHILDREN across Sefton will be given extra advice and support to help protect them from sexual exploitation after a new awareness project was launched. ‘Safe Skills’, a new initiative by Merseyside Police, Sefton Council and child protection experts, will be offered to schools across the borough with the aim of giving children and teenagers the knowledge and ability to spot older people trying to groom them online or in person. This will be in the form of a free educational package to be delivered by primary and secondary school teachers to their class. Pupils will get to watch several animated films showing real life scenarios which they can relate to such as gaming in their bedroom or hanging out in a local park. The schools package will develop young people’s resilience to protect themselves against these risks by using the films, role plays and interactive activities about grooming behaviours and controlling relationships. Children will be encouraged to identify opportunities where the character in the film can take action or ask for support. The project is being delivered to schools in Sefton, Liverpool, St Helens, Wirral, and Knowsley. Sefton Council's cabinet member for Children, Schools and Safeguarding, John Joseph Kelly said: “Helping young people to become more aware of

Report by Tom Martin the potential risks and dangers when they are online is a priority. We want to ensure children are able to spot potential dangers on all online platforms and know who to speak to should they ever feel unsafe.” Detective Superintendent Dave Brunskill from Merseyside Police’s protecting vulnerable people unit, said: “Sexual exploitation exists in lots of different forms and it is not always obvious to the victim when it first starts happening. “Groomers use the cloak of anonymity the web provides to hide who they really are and the real reason they are befriending them. “Once they have won the victim’s trust, they can exploit them for sexual or financial gain and the consequences for that young person can be dreadful. “We need to stop this happening to young people by arming our children with the knowledge and skills to develop an in-built sense of what to be wary of, what to question and how to seek help. “The best way of doing this is getting them talking about it with their friends and classmates so that wherever they are, be it on their phone in the playground or on their games console in their bedroom, they know what to do and how to do it.”

What about my human rights! No wonder I Breast cancer drugs don’t shop in must be made available town any more!

YOUR article on store closures in Southport, made me wonder why I don’t shop in Southport more? Apart from the parking charges (no free 45 mins. ‘stop and shop’ or even a ‘free pick-up’ scheme) the pedestrian-only areas are a huge barrier if you have kids, or are ill or elderly. Pedestrian-only makes shopping for anything more than can be carried or dragged behind you in a basket, impossible. No wonder the stores close! The Council seriously over-rates the amount they can screw out of us, and worse the inconvenience they can inflict on us, for the joy of shopping and visiting our wonderful library, gallery and arcades. Michael Parsons Southport

I read with great concern the news that thousands of women are missing out on cheap drugs that could prevent their breast cancer from spreading – when it becomes incurable – because it is unclear which health body should pay for them. A breast cancer diagnosis can be devastating for patients and their families. If there are drugs out there that can prevent women dying from this dreadful disease, they must be made routinely available. These drugs – called bisphosphonates – cost on average just 43p per day, and if given to all women who could benefit, one in ten

breast cancer deaths could be prevented. It simply doesn’t make sense that lives are being lost over this confusion over funding. That’s why I’m backing Breast Cancer Now’s #43paday campaign, calling on my MP to urge the Health Secretary to clarify who is responsible for funding these drugs and ensure clear guidance is issued, as soon as possible. I would encourage others to join me and add their support by visiting: www.breastcancernow.org/43pa day Gillian Jones by email

PICTURE of the week

TO Fred McCann, regarding letter - ‘banning paper is an attempt to block my freedom of choice’. To read that myself and friends and family were apparently stealing from dead or dying supporters, whilst at the same time urinating on them, because we were a "tanked up mob" well, where were my human rights when Murdoch sent his rag out on to the streets with those headlines! If you read properly the proposals are to give retailers the freedom of

choice whether or not to sell that ill informed rag. These retailers may or may not have been affected by what happened, but they have a freedom of choice to put that banner in their doorway and stop selling that

rag. If you want, you may have to go to a shop that does want to stock a proven lying newspaper but at least your precious freedom of choice is not affected. D. Pomford, Southport

‘Stop charlatans inventing facts’ I read with interest the letter ‘Change is coming’ in which it was stated that ‘...much of the media, including the BBC, are integral to the Establishment explains the bias adopted when reporting on Brexit...’ I wholeheartedly agree that the media in general have been very poor when dealing with the Brexit issue, but for opposing reasons given by Mr Durrance. Rather, I think that in falling over backwards to not show any bias they have failed the nation by not picking apart the blatant lies which were being foisted by the Leave campaigners. For example an extra £350m a week will be put back into the NHS as soon as we leave the EU. Anyone with common sense knew that this was just nonsense and yet the media didn’t dig into how they could have made such ridiculous statements. The problem with our media is that they have in general become so bland and PC that the public no longer receives anything like the investigative approach to journalism which this country deserves. I say let’s get some bias in the media and then perhaps charlatans like Farage would find it a lot more difficult to invent facts to suit their cause. Tony Mulligan Banks

‘It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas' - there was festive fun in a shower of 'snow' as the Ormskirk Christmas Lights were switched on. Picture by Martyn Snape.

Firework morons! To the morons who thought it acceptable to set off fireworks on a Saturday evening at 7.15pm in the Larkhill Lane area of Formby I was out walking our Labrador who was terrified. We try so hard to protect him on Bonfire Night, as at least we know what to expect. But this evening some inconsiderate idiots thought it acceptable to set them off on a random night, Nowadays it seems people can let them off whenever they feel like. Liz Jones Formby

As someone who campaigned for 20mph speed limits in residential areas, let me commend Sefton Council on the roll out of those limits across the borough. The council carried out very extensive consultations in all areas, and the lower

The magic of healthcare in Southport A BIG thank you to the Southport and Formby General Hospital. My mother, who, not far short of her ton up, lives in a wonderful care home in Southport, displayed serious health symptoms. A doctor appeared as if by magic, wanted her in hospital for tests and no sooner said than done, with Southport hospital welcoming her with open arms. Diagnostics were com-

pleted quickly, treatment prescribed and arrangements for palliative care very quickly put in hand. On my visit to mother, five separate professionals arrived to discuss everything from finance, treatment, ongoing care, best future venue, to what she would like for tea and the lunch I had helped mother choose was superbly cooked and presented - a proper meat and three veg dinner, just

like mother cooked for me in far distant times, with choice of pudding. Without exception, the staff were cheerful, willing, sympathetic and helpful with the slightest need, providing leaflets with all contact details for future needs or problems. Mother ’s care home for the past three years is Eventide where the staff are as loving and attentive as if to their own mother, not an easy task where

there is advancing Alzheimer ’s. Even while memory and awareness are declining fast, mother never fails to talk with pride about the wonderful meals and how well she is cared for. Mention must also be made of the local Grange Surgery. I have been with mother when it was felt that she needed medical help and, as it seems is usual, the doctor arrived very quickly, showing

interest, concern and plenty of the necessary patience. Now in my eighth decade, approaching my dotage and perhaps needing these magnificent services, I should perhaps think of moving to Southport. My sister, a similar age, already has. Thank you, one and all, for the magic of healthcare in Southport. Mark Warren, Selby

limits were consistently supported by residents, on the basis of public safety and improved street environment. It will of course take some time for 20mph to “feel” like the norm in residential areas. It is partly a question of raising awareness, in which the signs continue to play a key reminder role, and establish a new understanding of what constitutes good driver behaviour, as we did over time with seatbelts and drink driving. There is a role for enforcement, but in the early stages it is much more about reinforcement of good driving, rather than punishing the bad. Regrettably no new law will easily cure the bad drivers!

Family-friendly Atkinson wins Ambassador award THE ATKINSON arts venue has won the ‘Most Family Friendly Venue’ accolade at the 2016 Southport Ambassador Awards. The centre, run and managed by Sefton Council, has been working hard to put families at the heart of its offer, for residents, visitors and tourists to the region since opening in 2013 after a major redevelopment. The recognition has come just weeks after Linaker Children’s Centre recently started delivering its family services from the Children’s Library in The Atkinson. Cllr Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member Communities and Housing said: “This is a great result for The Atkinson. They work with many partners across Sefton to deliver a great offer for families and the work it does is important to the region. “I hope that lots of new families will now be encouraged to see what the venue has to offer.” Emma Anderson, The Atkinson Director, added: “This demonstrates that The Atkinson is a fantastic place for all families to have a wonderful time together here. “The Atkinson continues to develop its family offer with the recent launch of the new Star Wars exhibition; May The Toys Be With You opening, the Arts in Libraries project and the fantastic year round children’s theatre programme . “We are also in the process of launching a Schools Membership Scheme.”

Mellors tops list of 20 fastest growing food service firms by Henry James A FIRM familiar to many people in Southport is doing rather well for itself since bosses moved the company to Skelmersdale.

The company - Mellors Catering Services - which is a family-run business, is a new entry in the 2016 report, going straight in at number two with a growth rate of 47.1%. Created and owned by businessman, Mark Timmerman, contract caterer Mellors Catering Services has seen its number of catering sites grow by 70% to 199 in the last 24 months and has further ambitious expansion plans.

OLLIE COWAN reports A RETRO bar selling and playing only vinyl music is the latest drinking establishment to appear in what is now being dubbed Southport’s ‘Northern Quarter.’ And with another pub, Punch Tarmey’s, due to open tomorrow (Thursday) the area is fast becoming a haven for revellers. Bar 45, based on Leicester Street, is the fifth bar to open at the north end of Lord Street in the last 18 months, joining the likes of Peaky Blinders, The new Bold Hotel and Corridor Bar on Lord Street and Le Grog on Seabank Road. The sudden influx of new bars and eateries has seen that particular end of Lord Street flourish. Peaky Blinders, which only opened a year ago, has already expanded into the former Hamlet’s sandwich shop, such is its popularity, and the owners have even added bed and breakfast accommodation. The extra drinking trade has also given a boost to established bars Sacrebleu and the Inn Beer Shop, based on Seabank Road and Lord Street respectively. Bar 45, set up by Southport company Ends of Entertainment Ltd and former KGV student Dan Morrison, has aimed to tap into something no other bar in Southport has done, and dedicated itself to playing nothing but vinyl records. Customers search through boxes and boxes of LPs to find the songs or album they want. They also have the option of buying vinyl records as well. For years previously the building had been lying empty after former occupants The Little Gourmet, who were on site for 26 years, left in 2013. This week, another bar is billed to launch called Punch Tarmey’s – an Irish theme pub opening on the corner of Union Street and Lord Street by Bold Hotel owner Andrew Mikhail. Again, the bar will aim to rejuvenate a derelict part of Lord Street, after a number of occupants failed to make the site work. It had previously played home to Millgan’s Bar, The Three Monkeys and a short lived American Diner. Punch Tarmey’s is named after Andrew ’s great grandfather Michael Tarmey, an Irish Champion boxer. Andrew told the Champion that the bar will be an ‘exciting’ addition to the Northern Quarter. He said: “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of this site and the plans that we have for it. This end of Lord Street is undergoing a real resurgence due to the number and quality of bars we have down here. “Punch Tarmey’s will add to that. It is going to look amazing and provide something new for the people of the Bold Hotel area. “We hope it will take the best of old pub culture and integrate it with the trends of today. “It marks an important step in the future of pub experiences in the Southport area.” Hugh Evans, CEO of the Southport BID group welcomed the influx of new businesses to the area, saying: “The importance of the night time economy to Southport cannot be understated because the diverse and vibrant mix of pubs, clubs, and restaurants makes a significant economic and cultural contribution of our town. “The new investment that we’re seeing now reflects the confidence that’s coming back into the town and this can only help create an environment where people can relax, socialise and enjoy themselves. “One of the BID’s key priorities for 2017 is to launch an ‘Independents’ campaign to promote our night time economy and we’ll be announcing Bar 45 in Leicester Street details of this shortly.”

Report by Ollie Cowan SOUTHPORT residents have been busy discussing the progress of a project to give a well-known local community building an artistic new look. Recently Sefton CVS have been holding a number of consultations about its plans to create a giant mural at its Southport Community Centre hub on Norwood Road. CVS has submitted an application to the National Lottery’s Celebrate fund to pay for the mural on the entrance wall of the building, and commissioned celebrated Southport street artists Neil Morris and Keith Lack to create the design on the back of residents’ ideas.

Following an initial consultation event in August the artists have produced some visuals in line with local people’s suggestions, and these have now been discussed with other mural ideas. Eventually all the visuals will be submitted to the Parish Church Council of St Simons & St Judes, the custodians of the building, who will select a shortlist. Members of the public will then be able to vote and choose their favourite. Southport Community Centre Manager, Philip Blocksidge, commented: “The aim of this project is to give our building its own individual identity and some real

Residents send out clear signal to mobile giants... Report by Ollie Cowan MOBILE phone companies hoping to erect a new signal mast in Southport have been listening to the concerns residents have about the mast’s proposed location. Vodafone and Telefonica want to put up a signalboosting mast near to the One Stop Shop on Belmont Street but this had led to a number of residents in the area launching a petition against the plans. Ideally they want the mast to be placed elsewhere and according to Councillor David Barton the signal they are sending out to phone bosses could not be clearer. Cllr David Barton, who represents Dukes Ward, was part of a meeting between CTIL, the company which manages networks for Vodafone and O2, and residents living close to the One Stop Shop site Belmont Street. Alternative locations were suggested by various residents at the meeting and site holders that wish to benefit from such a commercial business venture are being sought. CTIL has proposed erecting a 4G base station on the site but residents fear it could affect house prices and affect the appearance of the area. Residents are now using their local knowledge drawing up a list of alternative sites which could

better meet the company’s requirements and be less visually intrusive. Cllr Barton said: “We are working proactively to secure the best possible location for everyone, raise awareness of potential sites in the area and appeal to prospective site owners who may provide alternative locations. “I would like to thank residents and CTIL representatives for attending and for positive constructive

discussion which clarified the situation and the need for a base station. “The meeting outlined how commercially viable this could be to people wishing to generate revenue, especially churches that may be interested, particularly if they are about to undergo refurbishment work which would allow a mast to be incorporated. “The proposed site at the One Stop Shop in Belmont Street is to replace a mast which has had to be removed in Tulketh Street. “It spears that Belmont Street is not the ideal site they are seeking for the mast, being right on the edge of the area they would consider.”

Council to debate multiple occupancy housing report STANDARDS of management and property conditions in the private rented sector in parts of Sefton should improve with the introduction of new Selective Licensing and Additional (HMO) licensing schemes. A report is going to Cabinet on December 1, to seek approval to consult with residents, private landlords, businesses and other stakeholders for proposed new licensing schemes, which would affect private rented homes in designated areas. The consultation will look at proposals to introduce Selective Licensing across Bootle and Additional (HMO) Licensing across parts of Seaforth/Waterloo/Brighton-le-Sands and central Southport. Many local authorities already operate similar licensing schemes which aim to a improve standards of management and property conditions in the private rented sector, which should benefit tenants and improve the communities affected. Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member Communities and Housing, said: "We have seen a significant increase in the size of the private rented sector - especially in the areas being considered for the licensing schemes.

Previously plans to turn buildings into Houses of Multiple Occupancy have been rejected, such as this one on Bath Street

"We recognise the crucial role the private rented sector plays in creating a strong and sustainable housing market and in meeting the housing needs of many households. "Through the proposed licensing schemes we look forward to engage and work with landlords to realise our vision of creating strong and resilient communities and the opportunity to live in good quality homes. "We are committed to make

Martin Mere news

these areas a safe and attractive place to live in and through the proposed licensing schemes we are seeking the full co-operation of landlords and their tenants in making this happen." If agreed, further details on the proposals and consultation will be available in the New Year on sefton.gov.uk. If anyone wants to be kept updated on the proposed licensing schemes, please contact landlord.licensing@sefton.gov.uk ADVERTISING FEATURE

A WINTER WILDLIFE SPECTACLE AT WWT MARTIN MERE

E Every winter you could say that WWT M Martin Mere Wetland Centre has one of t best winter wildlife spectacles in the the c country – and this year is no exception. Over 10,000 Pink-footed geese and 1360 Whooper swans have now been joined by the return of approximately 15,000 starlings at the Centre. The birds disperse during the day but return to the Centre from 4pm onwards everyday with a fantastic ten minute spectacle, creating shapes in the sky as they prepare to roost for the evening. Centre Manager, Nick Brooks, said: “Numbers fluctuate everyday but we can expect numbers of these starlings to rise as we get closer to Christmas so we should see an amazing starling display. Everyone loves to see the birds as they create shapes in the sky and it’s great to see them finally return to the centre as our

reedbed has become more and more established. This display should not be missed.” The best views of the birds display is from the Harrier hide or the viewing platforms from the community reedbed walk from 4pm onwards. Starlings spend a lot of the year in flocks. They are smaller than blackbirds, with a short tail, pointed head, triangular wings. They look black at a distance but when seen closer they are very glossy with a sheen of purples and greens. In other news at the centre, over 50 species can be easily seen in one day and these could include kingfisher, tawny owl, green-winged teal and a golden plover amongst the 1360 Whooper swans using the reserve. The annual swan feeds have started every day for visitors to get up close and see these swans feed every day at 3pm from the Discovery hide and 3.30pm from Raines Observatory – both includes a wardens talk to learn all about the migration of these amazing birds. Nick continues: “The swans come up right in front of the hide. The noise can be deafening and the sight simply amazing – it is hard to put this experience into words, you just need to wrap up warm and come and see the spectacle.” WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am to 4.30pm during winter months and parking is free of charge. Situated off the A59, it is signposted from the M61, M58 and M6. The Centre is also accessible via the Southport to Manchester and the Liverpool to Preston line by train from Burscough Rail Stations.

SUPPORT is being offered this Christmas to families who have suffered the tragic loss of a child. Staff at both Ormskirk Hospital and Southport Hospital will be offering help to those who have lost loved ones and Trees of Remembrance will be available in the prayer and quiet rooms at both hospitals during December. Visitors will be welcome to write the name or names of loved ones on a decoration and hang it from the tree. A special service of remembrance for babies and children will also be held at Ormskirk Hospital on Wednesday, December 7, led by the Trust chaplain, Reverend Martin Abrams (above). The event will start with refreshments in the main hospital entrance at 6.30pm before moving to one of the hospital gardens for the service. Rev. Abrams, said: “The run up to Christmas can be a very exciting and special time, but it can also heighten a sense of loss, grief and isolation. “This was a much appreciated and successful event last year. “We hope the short, informal service will be supportive to anyone who has suffered a child or baby loss – not just recently but at any time in the past. “The Salvation Army band will join us and we will be writing the names of loved ones on baubles to hang from our Christmas tree.” Windy Arbour Farm at Billinge is providing a Christmas tree for the occasion.

The Dog Trust's Dogmobile

THE DOGS Trust had tongues and tails wagging last week when they staged a public event in Formby to raise awareness of their work in helping hounds. The charity parked up its specialised 'Dogmobile' at the National Trust Nature Reserve on both Wednesday, November 23 and Thursday, November 24 in a bid to educate dog owners on the vital support they provide. Locals and dog walkers throughout Formby could learn more about the work of the Dogs Trust and meet some of the charity's four legged friends. The Dogmobile carried pooches from the Dogs Trust Merseyside Rehoming Centre, all looking for brand new homes. Dogmobile Manager, Mal Green, said: “The Dogmobile is a fun, interactive way to help people find

young children who were frightened by this lunatic behaviour, complained to and about the council. As I write this though, town councillors are still debating what can be done to prevent an encore next year. It is right and proper that due notice should be taken of residents’ quite reasonable complaints, but I do fear there is a danger of throwing the baby out with the bathwater if they are not very careful. All kinds of ideas have been put forward, including high fencing all round the park, removing hedgerows which can be used as cover for wrongdoing, increased lighting, increased security and, of course, almost inevitably these days, CCTV. Some of these plans (and there are far more than outlined here) have considerable merit, so long as they do not themselves get out of hand. But it must be remembered that in any case there are at least nine (I think, it could be more) possible ways into this park, and unless the high fence idea was adopted, it is surrounded on two sides by a most attractive old stone wall over which even I could easily climb. I am aware that anti-social behaviour is generally on the increase in this country, but the answer must not lie in turning the place into a kind of Stalag. This event has gone off without a hitch once; other social gatherings on the same field have similarly gone without a hitch in the past and our town council is trying hard to introduce more family-orientated events there for the benefit of all. So please, keep a sense of proportion. Don’t let the lunatic actions of a few, on one occasion, spoil the enjoyment for everybody else – or spoil a playing field which is presently a delight.

THE last full week in November was wet, windy and cold - bitterly cold with the wind-chill factor - and with the odd flurry of hailstones thrown in for good measure. So is anyone still going to try to tell me that this is autumn? Yes, yes I know my diary is, but then that daft article would have it autumn ’till the back half of December - you know, that well-known season of robins, snow-coated cottages and that bearded wonder, Father Christmas! I know, too, that I have gone on about the ridiculous division of the four seasons, but really, hands up anyone who doesn’t think that summer should begin rather earlier than the last week in June? I admit that over the years I have had November cruises on my Broads boat, Manxman when we have had beautiful cloudless (if chilly) days. But equally we have contended with gale-force winds, driving rain, fog – and on one occasion we awoke to find the decks covered in deep and crisp and even snow. Autumn? If anyone were to ask you what season I was describing in my first paragraph, I’d be surprised at any answer but winter - though I suppose summer could be the slightly amusing alternative! I say again, what on earth is the point of divvying up our seasons in three-month chunks if the weather normally expected on the ground simply doesn’t comply? Enough of my hobby horse though. I’m afraid I am going to incur the wrath not only of my local town council, but also of quite a few of my fellow inhabitants of Maghull. For the second year, the council staged an open-air cinema event on a local park to coincide with Halloween, complete with hot food stalls, and even an ice-cream vendor, with the stated aim not only of providing a jolly good family evening out, but hopefully to attract some of those younger members of society who think mischief means nuisance. Last year it worked and worked well. This time round however there was something of a hooligan element too, with witless young adults letting off and throwing fireworks on and around the field. Not unnaturally, some folk, particularly parents with

Small businesses left out ‘in the cold’ by Autumn statement, says resort tax guru SMALL business owners were left out in the cold in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement today according to a local tax specialist. Andrew Geddes, who owns TaxAssist Accountants in Southport, said: "Small businesses were left completely out in the cold in the Chancellor's statement. Hard working small business owners were given absolutely no recognition of the major contribution they make to the UK economy. "Small businesses are already facing huge challenges from compulsory contributions to staff

pension pots, the National Living Wage, changes to the way dividends are taxed and onerous business rates and there was no respite from the Chancellor. In fact the further increase in the National Living Wage announced today - from £7.20 to £7.50 an hour from April - could deter recruitment decisions and slow down growth. "The £2.3 billion housing infrastructure fund and further £1.4 billion for affordable homes is a welcome contribution to local economies, with many small businesses such as plumbers, electricians and

College service rated ‘good’ by CQC inspectors A COLLEGE for young adults with learning disabilities has been rated ‘good’ by a care quality watchdog after an inspection took place of its residential service. In its latest report, the Care Quality Commission, which regulates health and care services, praised Arden College’s residential provision for “demonstrating good management and leadership” as well as “supporting people to access the community.” The CQC reported that staff enjoyed working at the service, while inspectors said: “Relatives told us they felt they were listened to and staff acted on their views and opinions.” Residents are given support to access the community for meals and trips out

and the service helps them organise work placements as well as enhance their independence, employment and life skills. Arden College’s main site is located in Derby Road, Southport and is managed by Priory Education and Children’s Services, part of the renowned Priory Group. “It is a specialist day and residential college for students aged 16-25 years with learning difficulties and disabilities and/or behavioural and social difficulties. Mark Musselle, Principal of Arden College, said: “We have a great team here; it is very pleasing to read that our residential provision is so highly regarded by the CQC and residents’ families.”

Duo to welcome in New Year with huge charity challenge

WE MANUFACTURE CONTIBOARD, PERFECT FOR BUILDING YOUR OWN DESK, WARDROBE, SHELVING UNITS ETC 15mm (5/8”) Thickness

Report by Ollie Cowan TWO friends from Southport are hoping to welcome in the New Year with a bang as they prepare for a huge charity fundraising event. The duo will be holding a New Year ’s Eve party in order to raise money for two causes that are close to their hearts, The British Heart Foundation (BHF) and a new Portable Liver Scanner through The Rotary Club. Shona McDermott decided to support her Dad’s Rotary Club and raise funds for a new Liver Scanner after her father sadly passed away, while friend and fellow fundraiser Hayley Kilroy is raising money for BHF following her Dad’s bypass operation 20 years ago. Both, Hayley and Shona have been involved in fundraising for many years and last year raised over £3,000 at a Masquerade Ball and £700 at a Race night. Hayley said: “When my dad became ill it was a really scary and stressful time for our family. The treatment and care was amazing and thanks to the research of the BHF my dad is now fit and well. I was delighted when Shona said she would like to do a joint event again to raise

Show to pay tribute to the Man in Black

THE spirit of the Man in Black is alive and kicking in the Johnny Cash Roadshow which is coming to the Southport theatre this Friday (December 2). This show aims to be entertainment from the first note. It caters for country music lovers and die hard Cash fans alike. Clive John aims to capture the essence of Cash and performs favourites such as Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues and A Thing Called Love. He also duets with Jill Schoonjan (June Carter) on songs including: Don’t You Think It’s Come Our Time and Jackson. Martin Bentley is on bass, Nick Davis on guitars, Darren Bazzoni drums and backing

Clive John as Johnny Cash

vocals are provided by Louise Masters and Amanda Stone, who add sparkle and glamour as the Carter sisters. A spokesman for the Johnny Cash Roadshow commented: “Despite the band’s professional portfolio and slick stage presence they reach a

direct intimacy with audiences of all ages that other performers can’t quite pull off. This is more than just a show, it’s a heart warming story played out with genuine passion and a wonderful celebration of one of the world’s greatest known artists.”

Pano

T radiions

The leading male juvenile character (the principal boy) is traditionally played by a young woman.

An older woman (the pantomime dame often the hero’s mother) is usually played by a man. Audience participation is vital, including calls of He’s behind you! or Look behind you! and Oh, yes it is! or Oh, no it isn’t! The audience is always encouraged to boo the villain and awwwww the poor victims, such as the rejected dame, who usually fancies the prince.

MIGHT as well cut straight to the chase. The Grand Tour is thoroughly enjoyable. With all the right ingredients and a reported budget of £160 million, how could it not be? But to misquote one of the very, very many Jeremy Clarkson one-liners out there it’s not enough for this new show to be making waves – it should be ripping the Pacific Ocean clean in half. Based on the first two episodes I’m not quite sure it’s there yet. Judge it on its opening salvo alone – as pretty much every pundit from Preston to Peru has – and you’ll be hard pressed not to conclude the ex-Beeb trio’s wiped the floor with Chris Evans’ stint at the wheel of a certain other motoring show. Where Evans’ Top Gear made being pally with celebs one of the most cringe-worthy tenets The Grand Tour turned not speaking to famous people into an artform. Top Gear struggled for years with their mystery racing drivers revealing themselves, but The Grand Tour deliberately identified theirs from the off as an American with views completely opposed to the main presenters. Most crucially of all, Jeremy, James and Richard set out their stall as motoring journalists – car show presenters who know what they’re on about – while their rival stuttered with a Radio 2 DJ, an F1 team boss and the one where they got the bloke from Friends in. So the first episode was beautifully polished, authoritative and had just the right laugh-out-loud factor. But the second? Unless the half hour segment about the trio taking on a military base was an extraordinarily long preamble to a three-minute Audi test right at the end, I and a legion of other car nuts were completely lost. It dragged on and felt bloated. We all know what the now-Grand Tour trio do brilliantly. Delicately shot and meticulously edited drives of fast cars in beautiful landscapes. Boys’ Own-esque adventures on far-flung bits of the globe. Loosely concocted challenges used as an excuse for secondhand Porsches to fall apart in increasingly amusing ways, with the occasional Hovervan chucked in for good measure. I really hope Amazon’s budget allows for more of it, not less. The Grand Tour is friendlier and more enjoyable than the most recent series of Top Gear – which in itself wasn’t that bad – but the moments that prick up the national consciousness are yet to appear in either. The indestructible Toyota Hilux, journeys to the North Pole and attempts to send Reliant Robins into space aren’t there yet. It’s more of what you love – but nothing you weren’t expecting. The Grand Tour might have broken the ice and some viewing records (according to Amazon at least, as it won’t release the figures), but it hasn’t broken any boundaries.

‘A true gentleman’ - club pay tribute to former manager Paul Futcher SOUTHPORT FC have paid tribute to former player-manager Paul Futcher who died last week at the age of 60 after a short battle with cancer. Described as “a true gentleman” by club chairman Charlie Clapham, the highlight of Futcher’s two-and-a-half years as manager at Haig Avenue was taking Southport to the FA Trophy final at Wembley in 1998 which they narrowly lost to Cheltenham Town. SFC chairman Charlie Clapham said: “Paul was the best player I believe we have had during my time at the club. “Paul was a true gentleman, a magnificent sportsman who gave all of us as supporters our greatest day at Wembley. “A day that seems like yesterday and one that cannot be repeated as it will always be Southport Football Club’s first ever Wembley appearance. “I am truly shocked. Paul’s memory and legacy will always live on at Southport FC.” Commercial and community director Haydn Preece added: “Paul gave us our greatest sporting moment, leading us to Wembley in 98, an achievement which was celebrated by the club in 2008 by bringing that squad back together.

Paul Futcher.

“It was a childhood dream for all of us in whatever capacity to experience a Wembley final and Paul gave us all, the town of Southport and every supporter, including himself that wonderful, never to forget day. “Only the other day I was thinking of how to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of that day, sadly and unbelievably Paul will not be there. “He was a total gentleman, an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderful man to be around. “His passing has come as a massive shock to us all and our hearts go out to his wife Collete, children and all of his family and friends”

AN incredible game of football ended with Southport on the losing side despite scoring four goals and taking a 3-1 lead in the first half. It was Braintree who took the lead after only 58 seconds when Michael Cheek put the ball into the net from a crowded goalmouth. The Sandgrounders equalised in the 17th minute, a goal created and scored by their two latest signings, Jack Higgins firing in Ben McKenna’s cross. Josh Thompson then headed in Ryan Higgin’s free kick and, soon after that Andrai Jones knocked goalkeeper Sam Beasant’s clearance straight back past him into the net to put the Yellows 3-1up. But instead of consolidating their lead, a leaky defence allowed The Iron back in the game and eight minutes later, Danny Rumens headed in a corner then Oliver Muldoon sent a free kick straight through a crowd of players for their equaliser. Southport conceded a fourth goal in first half stoppage time when an attempted headed clearance from Higgins ended up in his own net so Southport ended up going into half-time with a goal deficit after being 3-1 up at one stage. The action didn’t let up after the break and on 54 minutes Jamie Allen was brought down in the area, and converted the resultant penalty himself to level the scores. It seemed as if a fightback was on the cards. Roared on by their fans, The Port attacked but it was the visitors who scored what was to be the final goal just ten

minutes later when Jack Midson headed in a corner with the defence once again found wanting without the guidance of the departed Callum Howe and the industry of the injured Jordan Lussey. This left The Port a full half hour, including stoppage time, to salvage something from the game but there were to be no further goals. The nearest they came was when substitute James Caton put the ball over the bar with only the keeper to beat. Braintree Town must be Southport’s biggest bogey team having taken 17 out of a possible 18 points in the six matches played at the Merseyrail Community Stadium of which Braintree have won 5, drawn 1, lost 0 and scored 18 goals against 5. A win would have moved The Yellows up to 17th in the National League Table,

instead of which they find themselves back in 21st in the relegation zone. After Tuesday’s, now vital, game against Solihull Moors who have moved up to 16th, the next league match is not until December 17 when eighth placed Eastleigh are the visitors to the Merseyrail Community Stadium. The first round of the FA Trophy is on Devember 10. Steve Burr admitted: “To score four goals at home and end up on the losing team is disappointing. “Defensively we were a shambles. We didn’t deal with set plays. Braintree put some good deliveries in the box but we’ve got to do a lot better defensively. “When we were 3-1 up we switched off but the game is never done and dusted and in the second half we were chasing the game.”
