How to survive on just £1 a day! Retailer sought to take over town centre post office Report by Ollie Cowan SOUTHPORT is at risk of losing its town centre Crown Post Office. Bosses announced this week that retailers, local or national, are being offered the chance to take over the Lord Street site in order to safeguard its future, and incorporate it into their own premises. The Southport branch is one of 70 Crown Post Offices that are seeking retail partners to help secure their future. Crown branches, of which there are currently 370 across the UK, are directly managed by the Post Office and based in high streets and city centres across the UK. Kevin Gilliland, from the Post Office said: “We must change the way the branch operates to ensure long term viability and to maintain services for people across the area. Potential “We already have over 10,000 branches which operate through franchises and agreements with retailers so we know this model works. “We welcome approaches from potential retail partners who want to work with us to provide our customers with high levels of customer service and easy access to Post Office products from a modern retail space. The decision to offer crown branches to retailers is a result of the network losing £40m a year of public money. “Partnering 70 branches with retailers and investing £70 million in 300 Crown branches is the best way to keep our branches on high streets and city centres across the UK,” added Kevin. If a suitable retailer is found then a six week public consultation will be carried out before any move takes place.

WE’RE SORRY FOR THE WAIT Town’s health chiefs warn of ‘unprecedented demand’ for A&E services Report by

David Raven

HOSPITAL bosses have apologised after Southport’s accident and emergency department missed waiting time targets for 25 out of the last 26 weeks. A&E Departments must have 95% of emergency patients seen to in under four hours but in the past six months nearly 3,000 visitors to Southport Hospital have been made to wait even longer. It is claimed over–stretched nurses are struggling to meet the deadline on a daily basis after the department saw a 20% rise in admissions in March compared to the same time last year. A claim from Sefton Central Labour MP Bill

Southport & Formby hospital which is facing ‘unprecedented demand’ for A&E services Esterson criticising the government for cutting nurses was this week rebuffed by health chiefs who told the Champion they have in fact increased the amount of nurses and the struggle to meet the targets is due to ‘many factors’. These include an extra 300 people attending the A&E department compared to usual and a 40% increase in those attending aged 80–89,

who usually take up hospital beds for longer periods. The hospital’s chief operating officer, Sheilah Finnegan apologised for the quality of care being affected, and warned the surge in those using A&E will continue. In the six months to the end of March 2013, 19,948 patients were seen at Southport A&E within the four–hour target. More inside.

Raging inferno at industrial estate Report and pictures by

Ollie Cowan

A MAJOR fire which broke out in the resort last Saturday night was so intense it could be seen for miles. At one point, the huge inferno, in the Crowland Street area of the town, threatened nearby buildings and crept dangerously close to houses. The fire is believed to have started shortly before 8pm. At one point ten fire crews were called in to tackle the blaze. A mechanical digger had to be used to remove material not involved in the fire to reduce the flames spreading. Onlookers watching from the edge of High Park reported hearing a number of small explosions. Police cordoned off a large scale area and crowds were moved back for their own safety. People living near the fire were also advised to keep windows and doors shut Residents were advised to keep all windows as a precaution Ambulance crews were also on standby but and doors shut Code NA

Patients face delays From page 1 However, 2,763 patients waited longer than four hours. Mr Esterson said: “The government must devise an urgent plan to bring all A&Es up to the required standard and ensure there are enough staff on the ground across the NHS to provide the safe care we need.” Southport MP John Pugh said the figures are a result of doctors becoming harder to see on top of a ‘self–inflicted wound’ by former Health Secretary Andrew Lansley. He said: “Right across the country accident and emergency departments are filling up but not because people are having more serious accidents but because GPs are getting harder to see. “Out of hours service is skeletal and home visits a thing of the past – that’s what residents tell me. Sheilah Finnegan added: “In common with other local hospitals, we have experienced unprecedented demand for A&E services this year but still see most patients within four hours. “In March, there was a 20% rise in ambulances bringing patients to our adult A&E service in Southport which is 300 more than the same time last year. There was also a 14% increase in medically admitted patients. On present trends April will be at least as busy again. “We are committed to providing the best possible care and the safety of patients has not been compromised despite the high demand for our help. However, the quality of care experienced by some people may have been affected and for this we apologise.”

The view from High Park which was closed off there were no reported casualties. An investigation is now underway into what caused the fire. Shortly after midnight on Sunday April 28, the fire had been brought under control and the incident was scaled down to four appliances. By 5.45am the fire had been suppressed with

End of borough’s Meals on Wheels service leaves needy residents fuming Report by

Ollie Cowan

SEFTON Council’s decision to scrap the borough’s Meals on Wheels service has been slammed by residents who rely on the service. As a result of reductions in government funding and massive savings being made, some council services have been reduced or cut completely – including the community meals service. Letters were sent out to people who received the meals on wheels on April 17. It informed them that the council would no longer carry on supplying the service and instead highlighted a list of alternatives, which included Sainsburys and coffee mornings. One resident, who wished to remain anonymous, told our reporter: “I think it’s absolutely disgraceful. “I live by myself and at times the only person I see for the whole week is the Meals on Wheels lady. One time she found me collapsed. It’s not just a food service it’s almost social.” Brian Keith, whose mother lives in

Go to Sainsburys or try a coffee morning instead, says council letter Churchtown, is outraged at the changes. “On the list for example is a coffee morning every Saturday morning. Are members of the council living on the same planet as the rest us I ask myself? “Do they seriously think that this is an alternative to a hot meal every day? “In my opinion Sefton Council has stooped to a new low with this despicable measure in a bid to cut costs and will be abandoning the elderly and vulnerable, leaving them to fend for themselves, many of whom will not be able to do so.” Southport MP John Pugh has also been responding to resident’s concerns at the

changes. The meals on wheels service is a well understood practice and is more than a simple catering service. It is a social service as well. “I struggle to understand the council’s priorities.” A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “A decision was taken as part of this year’s budget savings to no longer provide the Community Meals Service. “Letters have recently been sent to the 300 or so service users who currently pay us for their meals informing them that the service will end on June 30. “The information provided clearly directs service users to an extensive list of alternative meal providers, at similar cost, and should hopefully give them plenty of time to put new plans into place. “Similar information will also be sent to people enquiring about the service in the future. Anyone who requires further advice or assistance regarding the Community Meals Service should call the Social Care Customer Access Team on 0845 140 0845.” ollie.cowan@champnews.com

THE rising cost of motoring means families in Southport are spending at least three times more than they need to on travel costs, according to a new study. The Merseytravel study highlights the growing cost gap between cars and public transport and demonstrates that families could save thousands of pounds each year by changing their travel habits. Commuters making a 38–mile daily round trip to Liverpool city centre in a small family car are said to be paying £4,064 each year, a figure which includes annual standing charges such as road tax and insurance, plus running costs like fuel, tyres and parking. Making that same journey in a larger, more expensive car can take the cost up to a staggering £24,000 due to higher costs such as insurance, petrol and depreciation, the study claims. The comparative cost of an annual Trio pass covering all

zones in the Merseyside area, including return journeys from Southport to Liverpool, is decidedly less at £1,189. Cllr Liam Robinson, chair of Merseytravel, said: “This study shows that a much smarter choice for Southport commuters and their families’ budgets is to leave their car at home where possible and travel by bus or rail using a season ticket, allowing them to travel around the region at a significantly lower cost.” Merseytravel has launched a new online savings calculator to help people compare the cost of using their car and the price of a Railpass, Trio or Solo season ticket. The calculator can be found at www. LetstravelWise.org/cost. The TravelWise Savings Calculator takes into account average annual maintenance and fuel consumption costs for different sizes of vehicle and compares it to the cost of an annual travel ticket over the same distance.

A SOUTHPORT man is attempting to ride his bike over 250 miles in 24 hours for charity. Simon Wake, who lives in Banks, has entered a charity bike ride from Manchester to London to raise money for North West Air Ambulance. RIDEUK24 is held from June 8 to June 9, starting at midday on Saturday and finishes at midday on Sunday. Simon told The Champion: “Three years ago I ran the Blackpool marathon for North West Air Ambulance in memory of my friend who worked as a volunteer for them. “We raised a total of £1900 so I’ve decided to do a bigger challenge this year to hopefully beat that total. “I expect there will be plenty of pain involved, especially from my backside, but it’s for a good cause.” For more information on the ride go to www.rideuk24.com.

Suspect tasered after running away from police POLICE in Southport were forced to use a Taser gun to apprehend a suspect of criminal damage. Sefton Magistrates heard Philip Jones, 25, of Haig Avenue, had been involved in an argument with another male outside Southbank Newsagents at 9.15am on February 16, which culminated in him punching the shop window and smashing it. The police responded quickly to the incident and saw Jones running up the pavement of Falkland Road, with his face covered in blood. Brian O’Connor, prosecuting, said that when called upon to stop, he ran off in the opposite direction and was seen climbing over a resident’s garage. The police gave chase and Jones ran through a number of gardens – in one of which he damaged a fence. When police caught up with him, he was still being non–compliant and was stopped with the Taser. After arrest the officer noted, “He smelt heavily of alcohol and the words coming out of his mouth made no sense”, said O’Connor.

He told police that he had taken some drugs, which he hadn’t done for some time. He pleaded guilty to two charges of criminal damage when he appeared at court on April 26. In mitigation Graham Halliwell said that Jones had recently been let go from his job as a valet at a local BMW garage and had also found out his long–term girlfriend had been cheating on him. He said, “He did not try to blame anyone else but himself... It is to his credit that he went back to the newsagents and apologised and offered to make compensation.” The magistrates said they believed it was a “one–off offence and we are confident it will not happen again”. He was ordered to pay £324 in compensation for the window and £85 to mend the fence, as well as pay £40 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Police claim crime is falling Report by

Ollie Cowan

NEW figures have shown that crime continues to fall on Merseyside, police claim. Statistics released by the Home Office last week (April 25) show that for the seventh year running crime has fallen in the area, with a reduction of 47.6 percent since 2005. The force has seen a further reduction in reported crime of seven percent and has said it remains committed to reducing crime and supporting victims. The figures show that the force has achieved reductions in vehicle crime, criminal damage, drug offences, robbery and burglary across the county. Assistant chief constable Andy Cooke, said: “I am pleased to see that last year there were 6,885 less offences committed in Merseyside when compared with the previous year. “It is reassuring to see such consistent falls in crime over the last seven years despite the challenges we currently face through reductions in our budget and loss of police officers and support staff. “It is particularly satisfying to see significant reductions in burglary (12.1%) and robbery offences (20.5%) when comparing this period to the year before and also the average reduction nationally. “These offences have a significant effect on our communities, and to see a continued reduction is testimony to the hard work and dedication of the police officers and staff of Merseyside Police, working with our partners and community itself. “We will not be complacent and will continue to do all that we can to ensure that the people of Merseyside continue to receive the excellent standard of policing that they deserve.” Police and crime commissioner Jane Kennedy, added: “Merseyside Police officers and staff should be extremely proud of the reductions in crime achieved during this period; they continue to perform their roles to an extremely high standard, even in the face of cuts by the coalition government. “My focus moving forward is to ensure that all partners involved in community safety and crime reduction are working together and using the resources available to provide a coordinated and effective service that responds to the needs of the public.” Tell us what you think!

Any money raised will go towards Oxfam, one of 33 organisations in the UK supporting Live Below the Line; a global fundraising challenge by the Global Poverty Project. Catherine, who signed up to the challenge to raise people’s awareness of extreme poverty, said: “I am taking part to raise awareness and hopefully some money for those who desperately need it, but also so I can better understand how difficult it is to live on so little money. “It’s definitely do–able but it’s going to be a tough five days!â€?

SEFTON Director of Public Health, Dr Janet Atherton, has welcomed the announcement of a national programme to increase MMR vaccination uptake in children and teenagers as a boost to the recently launched Sefton MMR campaign. The national programme is in response to the large outbreak in south Wales and new figures which show that measles is at its highest level in 18 years. In 2012, there was a large outbreak of measles across Merseyside with 71 Sefton children affected. This year, measles cases are continuing across the borough with 19 children confirmed already as having it. Dr Janet Atherton said: “Measles is often believed to be a disease of the past, and people may be unaware that it is still around. “It is dangerous and can have serious complications including pneumonia and encephalitis or swelling of the brain. “In severe cases, measles can kill. It can also be very serious in pregnant women. “Parents should ensure their children and teenagers are fully protected against measles, mumps and rubella with two doses of the MMR vaccine. “Children get the first dose of MMR at 13 months old and the second dose is offered to children when they reach 3 years and 4 months. “We recently launched a campaign in

Dr Janet Atherton Sefton to protect the borough’s children and young people from the ongoing measles outbreak. Children in primary schools who need an MMR jab have been invited by their GP to have their jab at the GP practice. School nurses are visiting secondary school to vaccinate children and teenagers who are not fully vaccinated.” An estimated 800 Sefton school–aged children have been vaccinated over the last month in the GP practices and schools. There are still many more children and young people who remain unvaccinated and my strong advice to parents is to take advantage of this opportunity to protect your children.

Cllr Simon Shaw has attacked plans to charge for green waste

Big mistake to charge for green waste, says Simon SEFTON Council’s plan to charge for collecting green waste which is subject to consultation until June 14, has come under attack from Birkdale Lib Dem Councillor Simon Shaw. Until last May, when Labour gained overall control, Councillor Shaw was Cabinet Member Environmental on the Council, which included responsibility for refuse collection. “I think the Bootle Labour–dominated Cabinet are making a big mistake in proposing to charge for green waste,” said Councillor Shaw. “The suggestion is that the charge could be around £46 a year. “That is going to put a lot of people off. In fact the working assumption on the part of the Council is that over 70% of

‘It’s going to put a lot of people off recycling’ households will give up their green bin.” “I am seriously worried it could end up actually costing the Council money, rather than saving the £1 million a year that the Labour Party hope. “The reason is that green bin garden waste costs the Council far less to dispose of than the grey bin general waste.” Councillor Shaw is encouraging as many concerned residents as possible to respond to the consultation, which has over a month still to run, at www.sefton.gov.uk

Use screening kits, residents urged SEFTON residents aged 60 to 74 years are being encouraged to use their free screening kit sent out during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month (April) to help stop the largest cause of cancer deaths in the UK. The kits are sent every two years and can detect bowel cancer signs at an early stage, before people experience any symptoms. Regular bowel cancer screening is aimed at detecting cancer as soon as possible, as 90% of bowel cancers are successfully treated if detected early. In 2011/12 over 200 people in Sefton had results requiring further investigation. Every resident will receive their first NHS bowel screening test a few weeks after their 60th birthday. The

by Ollie Cowan test kits are posted out for people to complete in the privacy of their own home. Dr Janet Atherton, Sefton’s Director of Public Health, said: “Sefton wants to raise awareness of bowel cancer because around 1 in 17 people will get bowel cancer at some point in their lives. “The age of those invited for screening reflects the fact that bowel cancer occurs most commonly in people over the age of 60. “We know it is often considered an embarrassing subject but we are encouraging residents to use the screening kit and do the test in the privacy of their own home before

sending it freepost for analysis.” Bowel cancer can show a number of signs and symptoms including bleeding from the bottom or blood in your stools without any obvious reason, diarrhoea or feeling a need to go more often, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. Most people with these symptoms will not have cancer. However, if you have one or more of these symptoms for more than three weeks you should go and see your GP. If you are younger than 60 but concerned about bowel cancer contact your GP. If you are over 74 or concerned you have not received a bowel cancer screening kit call the helpline on 0800 707 6060.

A 53–YEAR–OLD Southport man whose empty house in Skelmersdale has fallen into a dangerous state of disrepair has been prosecuted after legal action by the borough council. At Preston Magistrates Court Paul Fane pleaded guilty to breaching legal notices ordering him to carry out works on a five–bedroomed property on Beechtrees. He was given a fine of £675, ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge and costs of £9,348.63 were awarded against him. Dave Tilleray, assistant director for community services, said: “This has proved that the council is willing to take action against owners of empty properties who refuse to work with us to bring the property back into use and leave them to deteriorate. “If landlords leave properties to fall into disrepair this can have a detrimental effect on the local community.” The council has a legal responsibility to work with the owners of empty properties to bring them back into use. This particular property has been empty for a number of years and council staff have asked the owner Mr Fane, of Haig Avenue, Southport, to repair it many times. People living close to the house have complained about youths getting into the property and

Building had fallen into ‘dangerous state of disrepair’ causing a nuisance. The council was concerned that the property was unsafe, particularly as the living room ceiling and floorboards in the house were in a dangerous state of disrepair. Staff arranged for it to be boarded it up several times to make it secure and sent the bill to Mr Fane, but vandals kept breaking in again. After all efforts to negotiate with Mr Fane failed, the council served him with a notice ordering him to carry out improvement works by June 28, 2012. These included removing all the smashed glass and replacing the windows, repairing the ceiling in the living room, replacing the front door to make the property secure, and removing all trip hazards and rubbish from the property. When Mr Fane failed to take any action the council began prosecution proceedings against him. Now that the proceedings have been completed the council will continue to monitor the property and take further action if necessary.

Iron Men to star in magic show! CROSBY’S famous Iron Men are set to star in a new primetime magic and illusion show. Antony Gormley’s Sefton artwork was chosen by executives at Channel 4 for their new programme Ben Earl: Trick Artist. Crosby features in episode two of the four–part series, which airs on Friday, May 3. The show sees the Another Place installation taking centre stage in a ‘stunning act of deception.’ Filming was facilitated by Sefton Council which works to promote the borough as a versatile location for film and photo shoots. The trick was performed

on the Blundellsands stretch of the beach, whilst the production team based itself at Crosby Leisure Centre on Mariners Road. Madeleine Knight, Channel 4’s Entertainment Commis– sioning Editor, said: “Art is fundamentally important to Ben’s work – it informs almost everything he does – so for Another Place to feature in the art episode was incredibly special to him and provided one of the stand out moments in the show.” Councillor Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Schools, Families and

Leisure, said: “It’s absolutely great that Sefton and Antony Gormley’s Iron Men are once again featuring on national TV. “The statues have really put Crosby beach on the map and are hugely popular with visitors, photographers and sometimes TV shows and documentary makers. “As a council we work hard to support filming requests which often portray the natural beauty of the area, or highlight local attractions and destinations. “Of course film crews may base themselves in the borough or employ local actors or support staff which contributes to the local economy.”

LETTERS to the Editor Action needed on A&E treatment delays Your article Pensioner’s Six Hour Wait for Treatment after suffering chest pains high– lights a situation that is totally unacceptable. The gentleman in question is quick to point out that he doesn’t attach any blame to the A&E staff and I am sure he is right. Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust tell us each time this happens that it is due to exceptional demand on A&E services but it is a problem that isn’t going to go away and requires urgent action. There are a number of factors that give rise to such delays in patients requiring treatment. 1. Delays in ambulances attending emergency calls. This is worsened by the fact ambulances now have to take more patients out of the area due to Southport A&E having already been downgraded to the point where children’s and adult trauma cases (at certain times of the day) are having to be transported to hospitals outside of our area. Also maternity cases are having to be taken to Ormskirk which take ambulances out of the area for which they are

providing emergency cover. 2. Delays caused by not being able to accommodate patients after they have received A&E treatment. This creates bedblocking in A&E causing a backlog of patients and preventing ambulances from being freed for further work. In recent years wards have been closed down at Southport. Even if economies mean these wards cannot be re–opened on a permanent basis, they should be kept in readiness so they could be opened if pressure demands. Further bedblocking is caused by delays in admitting patients to nursing homes and delays in discharging patients home – particularly when social workers are required to make the arrangements. 3. A major contributing factor as to why Southport A&E is so busy is that many patients who present themselves to A&E should be dealt with by their GPs and need not be referred to hospital at all. In 2003 GPs were given a new working contract that gave them more pay for less work. This was disastrous for patients. The

PICTURE of the week

agencies that took on out of hours work have produced a system so difficult to access that most people bypass the scheme and, instead, present themselves at their local A&E. Urgent attention is neeed to improve the ‘out of hours locum services’ thus making it easier for patients to receive treatment at home, taking the pressure off hospitals. The employment of one more nurse in the A&E, as suggested by Councillor Dawson, is not the solution. The problem is bigger than that. Neither is it helpful for the hospital spokesperson to keep wheeling out the excuse that “an increasing number of patients are older, sicker and frailer.” We know that, but hospitals have to be able to adjust to cope with demand. When that demand is frequently pushing the service to breaking point the answer has to be both to reduce demand and to improve the efficiency of the A&E. This can be done. Terry Durrance, Birkdale.

April showers

Happiness is found living a simple life I could not agree more with Mark Holt’s letter (April 17) about greedy bankers and their over–inflated pension pots. Although Mark’s comments are a bit tongue in cheek they portray one of the worst traits of human beings, and that is greed. The pompous old buffoons who are running this once–great country into the ground have over–inflated notions of their self–worth. They maintain this falsehood by hiking around their over–indulged bodies heaping praise upon the most undeserving figures in public service to augment themselves. It’s a known fact that any high school kid could run a bank, and gambling with other people’s cash is neither risky nor virtuous. The time has now come for all of us to speak up. If you are one of the privileged classes, just ask your bin man)or local postie what their hours and conditions are like nowadays. I have no religious belief whatever, but I believe that the Messiah’s message was profound. True happiness and inner peace can be found in living a simple life (bin those expensive gadgets) and by caring for/ loving those nearest to us. There are abundant resources for all on our lovely planet. Name and address supplied

Case for Scottish independence is nonsense since we are all mixed up together in the UK Mr Erickson–Rohrer’s recent letter in the Champion about next year’s referendum in Scotland on the question of independence raises some important issues about who we are as a nation. I believe that the case for Scottish independence is a nonsense simply because there were times in the UK’s social history when the population of these islands moved to where the jobs were. Consequently, large numbers of Scots and their descendants no longer live in Scotland, witness the host of Scottish family names you will find in any English telephone directory. So, while England is currently home to 85% of the UK’s population, that does not mean they

are all English. For example, while I live in England, some of my ancestors are Scots and so I consider myself a Brit. Moreover, if any Englishman dares to shake his family tree hard enough, a Celt of some description is likely to fall out. So to suggest that the 8% of the UK population living in Scotland are the only Scots is an insult to Scottish fecundity! With that said, it was the people in Scotland (Scots or not!) who voted to have this referendum and so it should be left to the voters in Scotland to debate the issue among themselves without interference, bullying or bribes from London. Certainly, it is difficult for me to imagine the

Write to the Editor at Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

Union without Scotland and it will be a very different Scotland without the Union. But even if Scotland votes to leave the UK, the Union would logically still exist, as one community of people of different nationalities rather than a group of nations. And the Union Flag would still fly, just as it did after Irish independence, testament to the fact that, whether Alex Salmond likes it or not, we English, Welsh, Irish and Scots, we British, are all mixed up together.

In reply to Mr Robert Hamilton letter (’UKIP views too simplistic on EU’, April 3) I have no intention of discussing his figures which, like his arguments, are all based on the EU. Ukip wants us out of the EU, not to stop trading with them, but to have a revision back to a common market treaty. During World War Two, I experienced the bombing of Coventry and London and in subsequent service in the Royal Navy saw the devastation of Liverpool, Plymouth and Portsmouth. Being engaged in trade, I considered a trade treaty of European nations was a necessity, requiring only a trade body to see that all adhered to its rules. The British people endorsed this view. During the following years the bureaucrats took on more power and issued rules which interfered with the freedom of Britain to make its own laws. The lack of opposition from the three main political parties led to UKIP being formed to re–negotiate the treaty. Politicians always quote the favourable trading we have with the EU, ignoring the more favourable trading some EU nations enjoy with Britain. We do not want to contribute to a body which wants to rule and split up our country and reduce us to the same state as some Mediterranean countries. Mr BAW Clenton, Southport

A LEADING bowel cancer charity is looking for people to join its team of volunteers in Southport. Beating Bowel Cancer now has a fundraising and awareness group in the town but is looking for more members. Regional community fundraiser, Rachel Thomas, said: “The group has been formed by two bowel cancer survivors from the town, Janet Marshall and Carl Smith, but we are looking for more people to get involved.” Janet was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2011, and following surgery to remove a tumour, has successfully beaten the disease. Carl was 47 when he was diagnosed in 2010 and after treatment is back at work. Janet said: “One in four people are touched by bowel cancer in some way, either directly or through a family member or friend. “We want to unite everyone affected by the disease in the Merseyside area to help talk openly about bowel cancer and help us to support the great work of Beating Bowel Cancer.” Carl said: “I know what a huge impact bowel cancer can have, not only on the patients, but on family and friends. “We’re supporting the charity Beating Bowel Cancer because they give vital support to patients and their families. “If, like me, you have been personally affected by bowel cancer, please join up and help us to raise funds for this important cause.” The group is holding a collection in Southport town centre on Saturday May 11 and is looking for volunteers to help raise

Carl Smith and Janet Marshall Code NA vital funds by shaking a bucket for bowel cancer. Beating Bowel Cancer works to save lives from the UK’s second biggest cancer killer and all money raised from this fundraising event will be used to help raise awareness of bowel cancer and support patients and their families coping with the disease. The charity needs volunteers to help from 11am until 3pm and will provide volunteers with charity t–shirts and collection buckets. Anyone interested in helping at this fundraising event should call Rachel on 07825 910943 or email rachel.thomas@beatingbowelcancer.org.

Ben’s big moment!

Extra special jazz festival lined up for resort

Safety record of road is questioned by resident “All this because drivers use this road as a speed track. “What is needed is positive action like speed cameras. I realise that this is a main road into Southport but it is still a 30mph road and a built up residential area with many retirement homes like my own and this means elderly people who can’t cross roads faster than a speeding car that can come out of nowhere. In a letter to council chiefs, James said: ”I await the inevitable next death, when you will hear from me again, probably with a petition in my hand. “It will be on your conscience.” ollie.cowan@champnews.com

A CAMBRIDGE Road resident has made a safety work plea to Sefton Council after the latest in a list of road accidents which have occurred on his street. Emergency services were called to a two vehicle collision on Cambridge Road shortly after 9pm on Thursday April 19. Although nobody was seriously hurt, the latest incident on the road has caused growing concern for one resident, James Taylor. He told the council: “Since I have moved here 17 years ago there have been several deaths caused in road accidents on this short stretch of road, one as recent as last year, and numerous injured.

Ben steps onto the pitch with Phil Jagielka

A LOCAL lad’s dreams came true the other day when he got the chance to walk out onto Goodison Park with his heroes. Ben Drummond, who goes to Norwood Primary, was a mascot at Everton’s recent game against Fulham and spent the day meeting players and staff at the ground. “He was absolutely made up and loved it,” said his dad Phil. “The club looked after him loads and he managed to get his shirt signed as well. “It’s been a lifetime ambition for his

ONE of the oldest residents in Southport has passed away. Hilda Bolland spent her final years in Good Companion care home on Roe Lane, Southport. On her 105th birthday in August last year, she told how she believes the secret to her long life is not smoking and having a small dose of whisky each night before bedtime. Hilda lived through both World Wars at her house in Springwell Road, Bootle which was bombed in WWII but later rebuilt. Her husband Eric passed away 21 years ago. Granddaughter Lisa Pheysey, from Lydiate, said: “We would all like to thank Good Companions in Southport for all they have done.”

When canal bike licence inspectors and parkies kept us all in order

School to host art group’s summer exhibition again THE SOUTHPORT Palette Club’s 88th exhibition will once again be held at Greenbank High School this summer. The exhibition opens on Monday, August 5 and runs until Wednesday August 21. The show allows the opportunity to purchase high quality art from local artists at affordable prices. All artists living or working in Sefton are eligible to submit works for the exhibition by taking their work to the school on Saturday July 27 between 10am and 1pm. Previous exhibitions have drawn large numbers of visitors and has been a popular attraction since it started in Southport in 1921. Palette Club chairman Peter Owen

said: “Many of our exhibitors and the Palette Club Council had hoped the 88th exhibition would be opening at the Atkinson. “However, whilst some of the Atkinson facilities will be open following refurbishment, the exhibition galleries are not going to be open until later in the year and cannot accommodate us until 2014. “Until then we are pleased to be back at Greenbank High School, where we were made to feel most welcome.” If you are interested in submitting work for the exhibition, or would like further details and entry forms, go to www.southport paletteclub.org.uk.

OLD BED RECYCLING SERVICE

NOW that is seems spring has finally sprung I have started to look around me perhaps rather more when walking Tina than perhaps I did in the seemingly unendingly dour days of winter. For instance, I may be wrong, or it may be a purely local phenomenon, but it seems to me that there are an increased number of blackbirds about this year. Now I know that our wild bird population is falling generally, but if I am right an increase in blackbirds is particularly pleasing. Because birds were always an interest of my dad’s – and his favourites were blackbirds and thrushes, followed by your, then at least, ‘common’ hedge sparrow. This perceived increase in blackbird numbers is particularly noticeable on walks down the Leeds–Liverpool canal towpath where it runs along the rear of people’s gardens. Actually, talking of the canal towpath and my dad brings back memories of times past. There are an again growing number of totally selfish idiots riding motorbikes of various sorts along the canal. But 50 years ago, I can’t remember ever seeing a motorised bicycle on it. Admittedly it wasn’t fairly well paved through urban areas like it is now – it was just packed soil or mud depending on season – but it just didn’t happen. Mind you, back in those halcyon days you were supposed to buy a licence off the then British Waterways if you wanted to ride your push–bike along the canal. And there really were inspectors whose job (I suspect among many others) was to check any cyclists they found to see if said licence was forthcoming. I don’t honestly know if anybody ever actually bought one, or what horror awaited you if you were caught without one. Because as a boy it was imprinted on one’s brain that you kept an eagle eye out for the inspector, or water bailiff or whatever he was really called, and retraced your steps quick–sticks if he was spotted. And to my recollection this applied just as much to adults pedalling along the canal as it did to us kids These days of course the cycle licence for the canal is long defunct – or I suppose it is since there is no–one around to police it anyway. Perhaps buried deep in some canal–side office in Burscough there are dusty piles of the things. But the lack of any form of any supervision of the canal banks – apart from local already hard pressed local bobbies – reminds me of the park keepers of old as well. I don’t remember a ‘parkie’ as such in my local Maghull KGV park where I spent many a happy hour as a youngster. But in the summer months at least there used to be a wooden shack in which lurked an attendant who gave out bowls and miniature golf equipment to those with the few pence needed to hire them. He certainly kept an eagle eye on what everyone was up to in the park itself at the same time. And on my weekend visits to Ormskirk to visit granny there was certainly an attendant in the park there to keep order. Ah, happy days. Oddly you kept off the flower beds, you didn’t smash glass around the place – and yet somehow it all felt more free. Of course, in those pre ‘elf ‘n safety’ days in Ormskirk at least there were those drinking fountains, often donated by local gentry, where at the press of an old metal button your could slake your thirst – for free. We did too. And oddly lived to tell the tale.

West Coast train changes PASSENGERS who use the West Coast Main Line train service are being advised to take note of a number of changes that will be taking place on the service. Work will be carried out this summer to increase the speed that trains can travel and will effect passengers travelling between Wigan and Preston. Four major rail junctions will also be replaced and enhanced. According to National Rail, the work will improve the reliability of the infrastructure and the punctuality of train services on Britain’s busiest mixed–use railway line. The £18m improvement scheme will be completed over nine days from Saturday July 13 to Sunday July 21 when four life–expired junctions will be replaced and

three miles of track re–laid. During the project, over an 18 mile stretch of line near Wigan, trains will be unable to use the Warrington to Preston section of the route. Train operators will be making alternative arrangements to help passengers complete their journeys during the line closure. Dyan Crowther, route managing director, said: “This scheme represents significant investment in the railway in this area to increase line speeds and make the railway more reliable and punctual for our customers. “Train services are quieter in July and fewer people are expected to experience changes to their travel plans compared to the work being staggered over the next two years.”

Chance to see Martin Mere’s little ones... VISITORS to Martin Mere this Bank Holiday weekend have the chance to see ducklings, goslings, cygnets and chicks. From May 4 people can also have a close encounter with nature and discover wetlands treasures as they delve into ponds to find mini–beasts in free pond dipping sessions. They can also construct a free woodland den, take part in a fun free telescope treasure trail and explore the grounds to find all of the centre’s Springtime babies.

THIS WEEK... Chilled Garden Pea & Mint Soup Sometimes with my recipes, I find less means more. You don’t need to go overboard to get the best out of fresh ingredients. My chilled garden pea and mint soup with crispy ham wafers is a perfect example. As with all our recipes at the Warehouse Kitchen and Bar, the ingredients can be traced back to local farms in the region. With this dish, the pea and mint really complement each other and blend well to make a no hassle starter. Ingredients (to serve six): · 300g of fresh shelled peas · 300g of frozen peas · 1 knob of butter · 1 onion finely sliced · 2 garlic gloves chopped · 1 litre of water · 20 fresh mint leaves · 6 slices of parma ham Method Take the onion and garlic and cook with a little butter. Leave to simmer until the onions soften but are still white. Add the fresh peas followed by the water and bring to the boil. Once boiled, add the frozen peas and cook for three minutes. Take the mixture off the heat and add to a blender. Blend in batches of 30 seconds and add mint leaves during intervals. Continue to blend until the soup has a smooth texture. Once the soup has blended, pass it through a fine mesh sieve. This will give your soup a restaurant quality consistency. Place the slices of ham on a tray with grease proof paper in a pre–heated oven at 160 degrees. Bake for 10 minutes or until the ham is golden in colour. To add a bit of restaurant quality, add a few fresh peas or mint leaves sprinkled on top and a drizzle of olive oil. Bon appétit!

Council urges residents to pay their bills REMINDERS are being sent out to residents who have yet to start paying their Council Tax bill for 2013/14. This financial year has witnessed new Government changes to the Council Tax benefits system. The current Council Tax benefit scheme was abolished by the Government and all councils in the country had to replace it with their own local proposal called the Council Tax Reduction Scheme. The new system started on April 1, and affected more than 17,000 working age residents in Sefton who receive Council Tax benefit. Sefton Council has recently issued annual Council Tax bills for 2013/14 which gave all Council Tax payers the ability to pay in monthly instalments. If residents are paying by direct debit they will be paying on an agreed date set between themselves and Sefton. However, if anyone has not opted to pay by direct debit and have not made

a payment for April, it will now be overdue. Residents can still apply to pay by direct debit by contacting the council. Councillor Peter Dowd, Leader of Sefton Council, said: “Sadly as the Government said it will no longer fully fund the new Council Tax benefit scheme, they have also reduced the amount of money it gives to local councils. “This means that an increased number of people now have to pay Council Tax as a result of the Government’s changes to Council Tax benefit and the introduction of a local Council Tax Reduction Scheme. “It is important that payments are made by the due date shown on your bill. “Failure to make these payments impacts on the council’s income and as a consequence our ability to deliver front line services effectively. “However, if you are unable to pay your Council Tax, you must contact us now to discuss your situation.” ollie.cowan@champnews.com

MP wants firms to apply for rates deferral help Report by

Ollie Cowan

THE COALITION Government has announced a Business Rates Deferral scheme where local businesses can delay paying some of this year’s rates bill for up to three years. Southport MP John Pugh today encouraged local businesses to consider applying to the scheme. Local authorities are being given new powers to be able to defer, relieve or exempt business rates to help spur economic growth. They also have the power to grant local discounts on business rates, and have the discretion to offer hardship relief to businesses in specific circumstances. Commenting on the scheme, John Pugh MP said: “For businesses in a challenging

r e scuammpam ign

‘Scheme can help the High Street’ says Pugh economic climate this is a positive initiative to help the High Street. “I am frequently told by businesses that it’s the big fixed costs of rent and rates than can tip the balance. “A business owner is best placed to decide if deferring business rates is in their business’ interest. “While they will still have to pay the rates eventually, it does provide them a degree of flexibility in their finances which will no doubt help many small businesses in Southport. “While this scheme isn’t a panacea, it forms part of a strategy to boost the high street.� ollie.cowan@champnews.com

Champ reporter puts outdoor gym to the test Ollie Cowan

FREE outdoor gym equipment has sprung up across the Southport promenade as part of a new health initiative. The borough–wide scheme will see exercise bikes, skiing machines, ab toners and more appear in public parks and promenades across Sefton. Some have already appeared in North Sefton as contractors set up gyms in Botanic Gardens, Meols Cop Park and the promenade wall. Janice Dutton, 61, is a keen walker and was very impressed when she tried out the sea wall equipment last week. She said: “I think they’re absolutely great. “They’re good for encouraging anyone to get a bit of exercise and they’re free to use which is even better. “It promotes a healthy wellbeing. “Especially if its a nice day you can pop along and just hop on for a few minutes. But I think it’ll be a shame if vandals get to them so they need to be protected.” A Public Health spokesman said: “Since 2009 Sefton’s Public Health has commissioned and worked with Sefton Council’s parks team to install outdoor gyms across the borough. “This initiative was introduced to increase physical activity, improve health and wellbeing and maintain healthy weight, at the same time as

Ollie tries out the new outdoor gym Code1058250 improving outdoor space, parks and greenspaces, to increase their use. “Feedback from users of the outdoor gyms has been very positive and they are proving very popular with all ages at all times of the day. “When all the new outdoor gyms are in place, we will be publishing more information in the weeks ahead.”

Ollie’s verdict I was pleasantly surprised to find an outdoor gym appearing on my doorstep. However, as you can probably tell from the funny pictures, it may not be best to tackle the equipment on your lunch break in a suit! Add to that a few confused looks from passers–by and you may be forgiven for thinking this free outdoor gym is a lost cause. But people were certainly taking an interest as they walked along the promenade wall. It’s fun, easy to do and it’s a free work out in the fresh air and if you don’t believe me, go along and have a go for yourself. Just don’t try it in a new suit...

Pugh was able to join us to perform the ceremony to mark the opening of this scheme. “Brewery Place is a high quality development which has transformed a site that the neighbours who live nearby wanted to see tidied up.” The ceremony was attended by local councillors from Sefton Council and board members from the Adactus Housing Group. The factory previously on the site was demolished in the 1970s and was once the home of the Victoria Brewery owned by W H Webb.

Former garden manager in top award for horticulture Report by

Ever fancied sailing?

Ollie Cowan

A FORMER Botanic Gardens nursery manager has scooped a top award at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Awards 2013. Alan Foxall claimed the Harlow Carr Medal for his significant contribution to horticulture in the North West. It’s been two years since Alan was made redundant from the parks department by Sefton Council and since then he has forged a new path for himself as an independent floral exhibitor. “I joined the department in 1967 and was responsible for all the shows, beds, hanging baskets and more. “We had a great team and it was such a shame. However I now have set up ‘Simply Flowers and Foliage’ and won a gold medal as an independent at the 2012 Southport Flower Show. “To win this award at the RHS is amazing and I was really chuffed to bits.

Alan Foxall was presented with his award by Michael Heseltine Code NA “I was asked to keep it quiet for a while before I was officially presented with my award in London in April. “My sister was made up for me and all my friends have been congratulating me since.” Alan was presented with his medal by gardening enthusiast Michael Heseltine. “It was nice to meet Michael and he’s a keen gardener so we had a little chat.” Alan will be exhibiting once again at the 2013 Southport Flower Show.

Southport Sailing Club are to host an open day this weekend SOUTHPORT Sailing Club will throw open its doors this weekend and welcome anyone who would like to find out more about sailing and racing.

Southport Sailing Club supports all types of sailing activities including racing, recreational sailing, family social sailing, youth sailing and training.

Code NA

Report by Ollie Cowan Paul Harris, from Southport Sailing Club, told The Champion: “The open day is a great opportunity for you to come along and have a taste of sailing in one of our training boats helmed by one of our experienced sailors. “If you have been inspired by the Olympics or just fancy trying a new hobby then come along and speak to our members who will be delighted to

answer your questions. We have regular sailors from 7 to 70+, sailing is a sport that individuals, couples, or all the family can take part in.” The club will provide windproof clothing and buoyancy aids but recommend a spare set of clothes and soft soled shoes on the day. Hot food will also be available in the Club House where you can talk to other members and get an insight into the activities of the sailing club. For more information call 01704 229420

STAR of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week, Josh Widdicombe is bringing his critically acclaimed stand up show to Southport. Josh Widdicombe: The Further Adventures Of heads to the resort this Thursday (May 2) at the newly refurbished Atkinson. Josh’s routine deals with his inability to embrace adventure in his life, and his continued frustration with everything he comes into contact with. Unable to relax and enjoy life, Josh has instead decided it is everyone else that is at fault for his lack of enthusiasm for leaving the house. “I’m really looking forward to performing at your new theatre,” said Josh. “It’ll be great for everyone to come down and hopefully enjoy the show.” Rising star Seann Walsh will also join Josh as part of a double header with his hit show Seann To Be Wild. “I’ve been on my tour for a little while now and I’m really getting into it,” Seann said. “Performing is great. As I go along the routine develops and hopefully becomes even funnier.” To find out more information or book tickets you can contact the box office on 01704 533 333. * Meanwhile The Atkinson’s first Friday night performance this Friday (May 3) comes from Americana and Blues artists State of the Union, part of a season of gigs from acclaimed bands and artists from the genre.

MOTORS When it comes to classic car shows – there really is a North/South divide Life on Cars by

David Simister

THE other day my sister posted on Facebook a list of things that I – as a Sandgrounder now ensconced in Peterborough – might be missing about T’North. Among the suggestions it offered up was coffee served in mugs rather than cups, chatting to chirpy Scousers on Merseyrail trains rather than sitting in silence on the London Underground, and quaint pubs in the Lake District serving dark ales named after poets and fell walkers. What I miss most of all, though, are our car events. That’s why I found myself in Aintree last weekend, a town well known for its connections with horsepower and racing – yep, part of the old Grand Prix circuit was being used for a sprint event. It’s a surprisingly simple formula for motoring fun; just bring your wheels of choice to the start line, put your foot down, hold on for dear life and hope your engine doesn’t pack in.

Which, in the case of one Caterham which left a half–mile of blue smoke and a similarly sized oil slick down the final straight, it definitely didn’t! The best bit, however, wasn’t watching everything from an E–Type to a Lotus Elise being nailed around the historic circuits corners and chicanes, but being able to wander around the paddocks and get up close to this mouthwatering machinery and have a bit of a chinwag with the owners. There is something wonderfully egalitarian about the whole event, because it doesn’t matter whether you’ve brought half a million quid’s worth of classic racing machinery or a Renault 5 GT Turbo. At Aintree, all that matters is getting the fastest time in your class. The one thing that summed that up more than anything else was clocking a lightly abused Renaultsport Clio 182 parked up next to an Aston Martin DB6. The two couldn’t be more different, but both of their owners were the epitome of loveliness and were there not to

The Renaultsport Clio and Aston Martin DB6 ready for action at Aintree Code NA show off, but because they enjoyed putting their cars through their paces (and, without wanting to offend either, I bet their lap times weren’t dissimilar either). So the smorgasbord of car shows across the region, which always get into their stride at this time of the year, is something I can add to my list of things I miss about The North. Next week; gritty movies directed by Ken Loach, people who insist on lolly ices instead of ice lollies and Brian and Michael’s Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs. Only joking!

Carens targets those with a sense for style Report by David Simister KIA’S hoping to sway style–conscious mums and dads with what it’s billing as the only people carrier you’ll want to buy for its looks. Normally, people buy MPVs out of school run necessity but the Korean firm’s set design guru Peter Schreyer, who penned the striking Soul and Sportage models, the task of reinventing the Carens as a people mover which definitely isn’t a school bus or a van with windows. The company said in a statement about its new seven–seater: “Kia is not claiming to have re–invented the MPV with the new Carens. But it provides all the room and versatility of its competitors while offering something they all lack – style. “MPVs exist to meet the varied needs of families rather than turn

The Renault Captur

heads, but the new Carens has been designed to do both.” While it’s not going to challenge the Ferrari 458 Italia or the Lamborghini Aventador for space on your child’s bedroom wall it does show the effort Kia’s been making, across the board, to inject a bit of flair into its offerings. Perhaps more importantly for cash–strapped parents, is the value–for–money factor – the Carens comes with both a seven year warranty and a tempting entry price of £17,895.

Code NA

New Renault Captur hopes to be a Brit hit supermini–meets–off–roader market dominated by Nissan’s Juke and MINI’s Countryman, with Fiat’s 500L and Peugeot’s 2008 also arriving later this year. A spokesperson for the French firm said: “Renault’s new entrant combines the best of three worlds: the style and driving position of an SUV, the cabin space and versatility of an MPV and the driving experience of a

compact hatchback. It’s also been designed in such a way that its beauty is more than just skin deep. “Aiming to have quite an impact, and not just with its looks, the new comer is both attractively priced versus the competition, not to mention very well equipped right from the entry trim level.” The Captur will arrive at the beginning of July.

SPORT Title delight for Squirrels FORMBY clinched their first league title since 1949 with a 2–1 win at Oldham Boro last Thursday. While the wrangle with the league officials about the ground requirements remain unresolved, and may deny them promotion, this victory at least preserved the Squirrels’ remarkable 100% record of away wins and delivered the North West Counties League Division One title with two games to spare. Formby soon asserted themselves, playing their bright passing game, and with fifteen minutes gone Jason Carey saw a shot bounce off the post. Their dominance was rewarded just after the half hour when Mini Adegbenro set Carey up for an unlikely goal, giving him the ball as he was heading away from goal, he span 180 degrees and put it low into the corner. Mikey White doubled the tally just ahead of half time. Boro responded powerfully and midway through the half grabbed a goal back, leading to a nervy final 20 minutes. But the high levels of stamina the Squirrels have shown this month held out to the end of this, their ninth game in April, sparking jubilation. North West Counties League secretary John Deal broke out the box of medals and 20–year–old captain Paul Speed lifted the trophy. Formby joint manager Jim Shirley said: “We have a great sense of achievement, because the lads have worked so hard all season. The lads have showed tremendous character. They have

Second win for S&B but Formby beaten FORMBY losing a low scoring contest at Skelmersdale in the Ray Digman Trophy last Saturday after scoring 97–9 in 45 overs with Andy Halpin (16) top scoring, writes Glenn Wallworth. In reply Skelmersdale were made to battle all the way as they reached 98–8 to secure victory, with Matty Dearden taking 3–41. Southport & Birkdale made it two trophy wins out of two beating Colwyn Bay by five wickets at Trafalgar Road. Sion Morris top scored in the visitors’ total of 143 all out with S&B skipper Chris Firth taking 4–23. In reply an undefeated 39 from Logan Weston and 32 from Mark Fletcher saw the hosts to 144–5 with six overs to spare. Hightown cemented bottom place in Group Three after going down by 149 runs at New Brighton, unbeaten knocks by Michael Hughes (105*) and John While (51*) propelled the hosts to 310–6 with Andy Warhurst taking 3–60. In reply only Ian Sutcliffe (61) & Kris Jones (58) put up much resistance as the visitor’s were

dismissed for 161. Fleetwood Hesketh lost by 79 runs at Ormskirk, the hosts decided to bat first and put 256–7 on the board with skipper Ian Robinson (60) top scoring whilst his opposite number Paul Mullen took 3–43. In reply 4–33 from Owen Griffiths help restrict the visitor’s to 177–6 with Derek Sykes (47) top scoring. Maghull beat Ainsdale in a one sided affair at Old Hall Field, the hosts made 259–9 with Chris Barlow (61) and Chris Tonge (51) both in good touch. In reply the visitors crumbled to 107 (Andy Barlow 40) all out as Ryan Swiers (4–29) and Jack Snowden (3–13) bowled the hosts to victory. Saturday’s opening league fixtures are: Hightown v New Brighton, Maghull v Highfield, Northern v S&B, Wallasey v Fleetwood, Ainsdale v Parkfield, and Birkenhead Park v Formby. Monday (Ray Digman Trophy): Formby v Orrell, Wavertree v S&B, Newton le Willows v Fleetwood, Birk’head St Mary’s v Maghull and Burscough v Ainsdale

Board ponder options to replace Watson Report by

Ron Ellis

SOUTHPORT continue their search for a new manager to replace Liam Watson and intend to select a short list from a large number of quality applicants for the post, an indication of how highly the position is regarded in football circles. Watson has still not committed himself to a new club although he has emerged as frontrunner to take over the managerial position at Telford United, a club he says, that has tremendous potential despite their relegation this season to Conference North. Although Watson, has several options open to him, he is understood to be the Telford board’s first choice. Telford suffered a nightmare season in their second campaign back in the Conference top flight, being relegated back to the Blue Square Bet North back in Easter. Meanwhile, Southport are looking for a youth development sponsor to link in with the club with Southport College. The sum of £500 will cover shirt and advertising sponsorship for the 16–19 year old Development Squad who play in the Conference Youth League. An education package is in place linked with John Clarke at Southport College.

judging when they needed to rotate the squad. Formby’s next aim is to complete a double by winning the League Cup final on Thursday. They face stiff opposition in the form of Premier Division side Runcorn Linnets but, they have beaten three other Premier sides on their own turf to get to the final – not to mention a 5–1 FA Vase victory over Premier champions Padiham.

Georgia’s gesture for poor children

High praise for Everest trekkers

FAREWELL TO ANNE HUNDREDS of mourners lined the streets of Formby on Monday (April 29) to pay their last respects to Hillsborough campaigner, Anne Williams. Anne, whose 15–year–old son Kevin was killed in the disaster, has campaigned tirelessly devoting her life to overturning the original inquests which falsely recorded the reason for her son’s death. At 1.30pm crowds lining the streets surrounding Our Lady of Compassion Church fell into a hushed silence as the hearse turned the corner bearing a wreath of red and white flowers which simply read ‘Mum’. She was led into church followed by her husband Steve and two children Michael and Sara along with her grandchildren Nina, Grace and Finlay. MPs Bill Esterson, Steve Rotherham and Andy Burnham who worked alongside Anne in her campaign, and Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson attended the service. As did the families of other victims of the 1989 tragedy including fellow Formby resident Barry Devonside whose 18–year–son Christopher was also killed.

Hundreds line streets to pay respects to hero Hillsborough campaigner And Stevie Hart, a Liverpool fan who carried Kevin off the pitch on a piece of advertising hoarding read out a poem dedicated to ‘a heroic life’. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and the club’s managing director Ian Ayre also paid their respects. Flags across Liverpool were lowered to half mast as a sign of respect to the mother–of–three and tributes were beamed across screens in the city centre. Former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said: “A fantastic woman that made her family hugely proud of all she has done fighting for Justice.” Shadow Health Minister Andy Burnham was

quoted as saying: “She went to the ends of the earth for her son and for everybody else.” During the service Anne’s brother Danny Gordon read out a poem Anne had written. “I look up to the sky, ninety–six stars shining bright, The ninety–six helped me in my fight, Kevin was top of the list because he was mine. “His case was so corrupt and riddled with crime, The other ninety–five must be the same, If they did it to one they would do it again. “I got to know a lot of families and heard the tales they had to tell, All about their loved ones going through hell. “We suffered setbacks and lots of worries, We laughed, we cried and swapped our stories, “We hoped that justice would come one day, When those who caused so much pain would pay.” As Anne made her final journey from the church to Southport Crematorium the hushed crowds burst into spontaneous applause.

‘We’re sorry for the delay’ David Raven

Report by

‘Give poor children my pocket money’ A LITTLE girl from Formby has been praised for her generosity after using her pocket money to launch a charity raffle. Georgia Dowler, was shopping with her Dad when he gave her £1 to spend. Georgia’s mum told the Champion: “Georgia said she wanted a raffle book so she could give money to poor children. “She asked if she could raffle a small bag of sweets she already had to neighbours she knew. “She went to each house explaining her little raffle and why she was doing it. I’m very proud of her, for coming up with the idea herself and putting the prize together. “She raised £72.65 and presented the money to Barnardos.”

HOSPITAL bosses have apologised after Southport’s accident and emergency department missed waiting time targets for 25 out of the last 26 weeks. A&E Departments must have 95% of emergency patients seen to in under four hours but in the past six months nearly 3,000 visitors to Southport Hospital have been made to wait even longer. It is claimed over–stretched nurses are struggling to meet the deadline on a daily basis after the department saw a 20% rise in admissions in March compared to the same time last year. A claim from Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson criticising the government for cutting nurses was this week rebuffed by health chiefs who told the Champion they have in fact increased the amount of nurses and the struggle to meet the targets is due to ‘many factors’. These include an extra 300 people attending the A&E department compared to usual and a 40% increase in those attending aged 80–89, who usually take up hospital beds for longer periods. The hospital’s chief operating officer, Sheilah Finnegan apologised for the quality of care being affected, and warned the surge in those using A&E will continue. In the six months to the end of March 2013, 19,948 patients were seen at Southport A&E within the four–hour target. However, 2,763 patients waited longer than four hours. Mr Esterson said: “The government must devise an urgent plan to bring all A&Es up to the required standard and ensure there are enough staff on the ground across the NHS to provide the safe care we need.”

Town’s health chiefs warn of ‘unprecedented demand’ for A&E services

Southport & Formby hospital

Southport MP John Pugh said the figures are a result of doctors becoming harder to see on top of a ‘self–inflicted wound’ by former Health Secretary Andrew Lansley. He said: “Right across the country accident and emergency departments are filling up but not because people are having more serious accidents but because GPs are getting harder to see. Out of hours service is skeletal and home visits a thing of the past – that’s what residents tell me. Sheilah Finnegan added: “In common with other local hospitals, we have experienced unprecedented demand for A&E services this year but still see most patients within four hours. “In March, there was a 20% rise in ambulances bringing patients to our adult A&E service in Southport which is 300 more than the same time last year. There was also a 14% increase in medically admitted patients. On present trends April will be at least as busy again. “We are committed to providing the best possible care and the safety of patients has not been compromised despite the high demand for our help. However, the quality of care experienced by some people may have been affected and for this we apologise.”

Range High given £0.5m to refurbish labs Report by

Stephanie O’Connor RANGE High School has announced this week that it has been awarded nearly £0.5m of funding to refurbish four of its science laboratories and to renew its perimeter fencing.

The party travelled by coach to the Alpe D’Huez, which makes up part of the Tour de France route. Year 12 pupil John McKeating was awarded Skier of the Year

for his enthusiasm, commitment and leadership and year 11 pupil Jamie Fazal was chosen as the runner up for his skiing ability and attitude. A spokesperson for the school said: “The group was a mixture of beginners and advanced skiers and all students developed greatly. “We are thrilled with all the students.”

Iron Men to star in magic show! Report by

Ollie Cowan

on the Blundellsands stretch of the beach, whilst the production team based itself at Crosby Leisure Centre on Mariners Road. Madeleine Knight, Channel 4’s Entertainment Commis– sioning Editor, said: “Art is fundamentally important to Ben’s work – it informs almost everything he does – so for Another Place to feature in the art episode was incredibly special to him and provided one of the stand out moments in the show.” Councillor Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Schools, Families and

Leisure, said: “It’s absolutely great that Sefton and Antony Gormley’s Iron Men are once again featuring on national TV. “The statues have really put Crosby beach on the map and are hugely popular with visitors, photographers and sometimes TV shows and documentary makers. “As a council we work hard to support filming requests which often portray the natural beauty of the area, or highlight local attractions and destinations. “Of course film crews may base themselves in the borough or employ local actors or support staff which contributes to the local economy.”

Crosby features in episode two of the four–part series, which airs on Friday, May 3. The show sees the Another Place installation taking centre stage in a ‘stunning act of deception.’ Filming was facilitated by Sefton Council which works to promote the borough as a versatile location for film and photo shoots.

SPORT Title delight for Squirrels FORMBY clinched their first league title since 1949 with a 2–1 win at Oldham Boro last Thursday. While the wrangle with the league officials about the ground requirements remain unresolved, and may deny them promotion, this victory at least preserved the Squirrels’ remarkable 100% record of away wins and delivered the North West Counties League Division One title with two games to spare. Formby soon asserted themselves, playing their bright passing game, and with fifteen minutes gone Jason Carey saw a shot bounce off the post. Their dominance was rewarded just after the half hour when Mini Adegbenro set Carey up for an unlikely goal, giving him the ball as he was heading away from goal, he span 180 degrees and put it low into the corner. Mikey White doubled the tally just ahead of half time. Boro responded powerfully and midway through the half grabbed a goal back, leading to a nervy final 20 minutes. But the high levels of stamina the Squirrels have shown this month held out to the end of this, their ninth game in April, sparking jubilation. North West Counties League secretary John Deal broke out the box of medals and 20–year–old captain Paul Speed lifted the trophy. Formby joint manager Jim Shirley said: “We have a great sense of achievement, because the lads have worked so hard all season. The lads have showed tremendous character. They have

Formby players and coaching staff celebrate winning the league title. been put under pressure in a lot of games, but they have come up with the goods. “It was frustrating in mid–season when we kept having games called off, but we signed a couple of players to give a bit more depth and strengthen the squad.” He added that his colleague, fellow joint manager Kev Dally, has been great at spotting when some have looked jaded and

Second win for S&B but Formby beaten FORMBY losing a low scoring contest at Skelmersdale in the Ray Digman Trophy last Saturday after scoring 97–9 in 45 overs with Andy Halpin (16) top scoring, writes Glenn Wallworth. In reply Skelmersdale were made to battle all the way as they reached 98–8 to secure victory, with Matty Dearden taking 3–41. Southport & Birkdale made it two trophy wins out of two beating Colwyn Bay by five wickets at Trafalgar Road. Sion Morris top scored in the visitors’ total of 143 all out with S&B skipper Chris Firth taking 4–23. In reply an undefeated 39 from Logan Weston and 32 from Mark Fletcher saw the hosts to 144–5 with six overs to spare. Hightown cemented bottom place in Group Three after going down by 149 runs at New Brighton, unbeaten knocks by Michael Hughes (105*) and John While (51*) propelled the hosts to 310–6 with Andy Warhurst taking 3–60. In reply only Ian Sutcliffe (61) & Kris Jones (58) put up much resistance as the visitor’s were

dismissed for 161. Fleetwood Hesketh lost by 79 runs at Ormskirk, the hosts decided to bat first and put 256–7 on the board with skipper Ian Robinson (60) top scoring whilst his opposite number Paul Mullen took 3–43. In reply 4–33 from Owen Griffiths help restrict the visitor’s to 177–6 with Derek Sykes (47) top scoring. Maghull beat Ainsdale in a one sided affair at Old Hall Field, the hosts made 259–9 with Chris Barlow (61) and Chris Tonge (51) both in good touch. In reply the visitors crumbled to 107 (Andy Barlow 40) all out as Ryan Swiers (4–29) and Jack Snowden (3–13) bowled the hosts to victory. Saturday’s opening league fixtures are: Hightown v New Brighton, Maghull v Highfield, Northern v S&B, Wallasey v Fleetwood, Ainsdale v Parkfield, and Birkenhead Park v Formby. Monday (Ray Digman Trophy): Formby v Orrell, Wavertree v S&B, Newton le Willows v Fleetwood, Birk’head St Mary’s v Maghull and Burscough v Ainsdale

Board ponder options to replace Watson Report by

Ron Ellis

SOUTHPORT continue their search for a new manager to replace Liam Watson and intend to select a short list from a large number of quality applicants for the post, an indication of how highly the position is regarded in football circles. Watson has still not committed himself to a new club although he has emerged as frontrunner to take over the managerial position at Telford United, a club he says, that has tremendous potential despite their relegation this season to Conference North. Although Watson, has several options open to him, he is understood to be the Telford board’s first choice. Telford suffered a nightmare season in their second campaign back in the Conference top flight, being relegated back to the Blue Square Bet North back in Easter. Meanwhile, Southport are looking for a youth development sponsor to link in with the club with Southport College. The sum of £500 will cover shirt and advertising sponsorship for the 16–19 year old Development Squad who play in the Conference Youth League. An education package is in place linked with John Clarke at Southport College.

judging when they needed to rotate the squad. Formby’s next aim is to complete a double by winning the League Cup final on Thursday. They face stiff opposition in the form of Premier Division side Runcorn Linnets but, they have beaten three other Premier sides on their own turf to get to the final – not to mention a 5–1 FA Vase victory over Premier champions Padiham.
