Evans, prosecuting. He gave the police the photographs and subsequently 29–year–old Chazauskas, an itinerant Lithuanian, was arrested. He later pleaded guilty to the August 22 burglary and jailed for two years at Liverpool Crown Court. Frank Dillon, defending, said his client’s recollection of events is hazy because of the alcohol he had consumed.“

by David Simister THE cost of running your car has never been greater, Southport’s MP has said this week in response to news that motorists in the resort are paying hundreds of pounds in motoring taxes. John Pugh, the resort’s Liberal Democrat MP, said in response to new figures from the Taxpayers’ Alliance that drivers were being hit hard locally by the cost of petrol, and pointed out that price rises were hitting those who cannot afford the latest fuel efficient cars the hardest. He told The Champion: “The cost of petrol is clearly impacting locally and has the worst effect on those who have no choice but to use their car. “Not everyone can simply

MP joins debate on car costs

that motorists in Sefton are paying an estimated £324.79 a year in motoring–related taxation, with the cost of petrol and diesel playing a large part in the cost of running a car. Matthew Sinclair, Director of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “British motorists are hit unfairly hard by motoring taxes that are far too high. Families in the suburbs and rural areas suffer the most as driving is so often essential outside city centres. Everything from driving to work, to going to the shops, to getting the kids to school is made much more expensive and that squeezes the budgets of people struggling enough with other pressures on their finances. “Politicians should stop ripping–off the British motorist,” added Mr Sinclair. david.simister@champnews.com

Pastures charity is named one of the country’s most inspiring projects by Natasha Young

THE number of young people taking on apprenticeships in Southport saw a 77% rise last year, according to government figures. Statistics from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), showed 550 apprenticeships were started in the town in 2009/10, which jumped to 970 in 2010/11. Local Liberal Democrat councillor, Iain Brodie Browne told The Champion he was “delighted” with the news of the increase, which follows recent reports that unemployment is on the rise. “Apprenticeships are beneficial to all involved and the record rise in learners taking them up is great news for Southport and the economy as a whole,” said Councillor Brodie Browne, who added: “Apprenticeships bring skills and hope.” The Birkdale ward councillor now hopes employers, especially small businesses in the resort, will take advantage of new measures to boost apprenticships that were announced by Business Secretary Vince Cable last week, to help the numbers

Councillor Iain Brodie Browne increase even further. The measures include offering employers with up to 50 employees an incentive payment of £1,500 to take on apprentices aged 16–24, streamlining the process so that it takes an employer just one month to advertise for an apprentice, and offering more advice and guidance to support the needs of small employers. Cllr Brodie Browne added: “Small businesses form the backbone of our economy–especially here in Southport and the announcements by Business Secretary, Vince Cable, are very welcome.”

ATTENTION TOYOTA OWNERS! TOYOTA SPECIALISTS WITH 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE Pastor Pete Cunningham and Vicki Woodley receive the award at Westminster sleeves and working at grass roots to bring help to the most marginalised of our society.” Other winners included Christine Depiono, who runs Emmanuel House in Gateshead. She picked up the ‘inspiring individual’ accolade for her project which provides a free service to those suffering with terminal cancer. Lifeline Church in Essex won the ‘inspiring church’ award for its Open

Doors project, which helps vulnerable and isolated women. Steve Webb, Minister of State for Department of Work and Pensions was a speaker at the ceremony, which was also attended by Andrew Selous, the Parliamentary private secretary to Iain Duncan–Smith and ex Treasury Minister Stephen Timms.

Songwriter in running for Students race to BBC Radio 2 folk award the rescue of man A SONG written by Southport singer/songwriter Kevin Littlewood has made the shortlist for the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. ’On Morcambe Bay’, which commemorates the deaths of 23 Chinese migrant workers on the cockle beds of Morcambe Bay in February 2004, is one of four in the running for the ‘Best Original Song’ title. It was written by Kevin, a resident performer at Southport’s Bothy Folk Club which meets at Park Golf Club, and was recently recorded by the Irish singer Christy Moore. After the nominees were announced on the on air by Radio 2 presenter Mike Harding, Kevin said: “I am very pleased indeed that Christy’s version of my song has been put forward.

A SOUTHPORT–based charity which provides houses and support for the homeless, was picked from 120 UK nominees to recieve a top award at the Houses of Parliament. Green Pastures was one of just three winners to be presented with an Inspire Award, organised annually by Inspire magazine and the Evangelical Alliance, during a ceremony hosted by Christian MPs in Westminister’s Jubilee Room. The charity, which was set up in 1999 by Shorline Church’s Pastor Pete Cunningham, along with his son Andrew and fellow church member Vicki Woodley, won the ‘inspiring project’ category after it went from housing and caring for two homeless couples to now providing a shelter for more than 200 formerly homeless people in the area. It was highlighted that the trio originally came up with enough money to buy two flats to help the two homeless couples but by 2005, still without ever having received any government grants, the importance of Green Pastures was recognised as Sefton Council announced there were no longer any long–term rough sleepers in Southport. As well as its work within the resort, the charity now has a network of 28 partners including churches, Christian charities and local authourities providing homes for more than 400 people nationwide. After receiving the accolade, Pastor Pete Cunningham told The Champion: “We’re just amazed that we won. You listen to everyone elses work and think ‘I haven’t done that much really’ because they sound so wonderful.” Vicki added: “It was gratifying to see so many people rolling up their

subject in the public eye, especially as the cockle trade continues to prove so hazardous to those who work in it.” The winner will be announced at The Lowry on February 8.

TWO students came to the rescue of a man in Southport last week, after he suffered an epileptic seizure outside the town’s KGV College. Taylor Richard, aged 16, and eighteen–year–old Tom McCarthy sprang into action after they found the man in a bus stop opposite the Scarisbrick New Road college, which they both attend. According to a KGV spokesperson, they helped make him comfortable and warm and directed the emergency services to the scene. They also alerted first aid staff at the college, who assisted until the ambulance arrived. Principal Adele Wills applauded the students for their actions, but Taylor downplayed the situation and said: “I just did what anyone else would have done in those circumstances, it was the first thing that came into my mind.”

College student Jenni was made up to work at Miss World finals Report by Henry James

Miss England, Alize Mounter

A SOUTHPORT student was made–up to work at the Miss World Finals at London’s Earls Court. Jenni Hearnshaw, who is studying hair and media at West Lancashire College, applied make–up to Miss England contestant Alize Mounter. Miss Mounter, came fourth, among 26 contestants, at the competition on Sunday, November 6, which had a television audience of over a billion. Jenni originally volunteered to apply her make–up skills at the Miss England Nationals back in July, held at the Hilton in Birmingham. She was contacted by Helen E Cosmetics and asked personally to come back for the Miss World finals which were won by Miss

Venezuela, Ivian Sarcos. Jenni said: “I was very nervous initially because I have only applied make–up professionally at a friend’s wedding. “This was the first show I have worked at and I didn’t know what to expect. “I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxed and friendly the contestants were. “We were given a brief for the evening on a card and as it was an evening look, dramatic eyes and strong stage make–up was required to cope with the glare of the hot lights. “I’m pleased to say that everyone commented on how great the dramatic make–up looked on the night. “Being asked to apply the make–up at such a high profile event was a great opportunity for me, and it has given me a lot of confidence to work freelance in the industry.” henry.james@champnews.com

Extra time Competition winner Joseph joins allowed for Santa for horse drawn carriage ride debate on drainage

Village post office to close THE village post office in Banks will close later this month, it has been confirmed. The Church Road site will close on November 28 due to the resignation of the subpostmaster and the premises no longer being available for use as a post office, with residents in the village being urged to use sister sites in Southport until further notice. A spokesman for the Post Office said: “We understand that customers in this area will be concerned about the future of Post Office services.” “The provision of a Post Office service in the local community is important to us, and we will continue to work hard to restore services to Banks as soon as possible.” Residents who need to use a post office are being encouraged to use both Crossens post office, on Rufford Road, and Preston New Road post office, which are both located in Southport. There are also post offices in Hesketh Bank, on Shore Road, and in Tarleton, on Mark Square Efforts are now underway to find a new site in Banks to provide post office facilities, following the closure of the Church Road site.

Shakin’ Stevens cancels show SINGER Shakin’ Stevens has cancelled his performance at Southport Theatre next week, due to a ‘clash of commitments.’ The star, who is touring to celebrate 30 years since his first UK hit ‘Hot Dog’, was scheduled to appear in the resort next Monday night. Yesterday (Tuesday), a spokeswoman for the theatre announced: “The management of Shakin’ Stevens has had to take the unavoidable decision to cancel the show due to a clash of commitments.” She explained that anyone with tickets to the show can now get a full refund from the point of sale.

Eau de resort! Barbara bottles the essence of Southport

Vacant stores about to go ‘under offer’ THE vacant Chapel Street units, previously occupied by five Arcadia Group brands, could be ‘under offer’ in the next couple of weeks. The site was left empty earlier this year when high street giants Miss Selfridge, Topshop/Topman and Dorothy Perkins/Burton closed, but Gary Newbould, from letting agents Newbould Commercial Limited, told The Champion this week they are “in discussions with a number of parties” and “hope to put the

premises under offer in the next couple of weeks.” The Champion previously reported household names were in talks to take over the units, with some retailers looking to turn the unit into one large store and others looking to move into the individual smaller shops. However, Marks and Spencer has quashed rumours it is looking to extend into the site. A spokeswoman for the store told The Champion: “It’s not something we’re looking at.”

SHOEMASTER

by Natasha Young ONE Southport resident has found a way to bottle a mix of what makes the resort popular... and sell it as perfume. Barbara Pratt, 58, has concocted a set of fragrances named after and inspired by the town itself and says she “just loved” the results. The Scarisbrick New Road resident, who has worked as a cosmetics saleswoman and has recently started experimenting with making her own perfumes, explained the mixture of scents used in ‘Southport’. She said: “The base for the ladies’ fragrance is floral, because of the Floral Hall and the Southport Flower Show. “An aquatic scent for the sea makes the middle notes and then the outer note is green for the golf clubs.” She added: “The men’s fragrance is woody to represent our extensive tree planting – a condition by the Hesketh family when they gave the land over. “It has fougere to represent the pine woods and it’s also got the aquatic note.” Mrs Pratt, who is hoping to approach Sefton’s toursim sector to sell the fragrances across the borough, had been using a Blue Box kit to create different scents and was inspired by recent reports in the national press that a Burton–on–Trent fragrance had been made, combining beer and football with Marmite and

THE Environment Agency will hold an extra drop in session tomorrow (Thursday), as part of a consultation on proposals to scale back drainage pumping in the Lower Alt and Crossens area. The session, being held at St Cuthbert’s Church Hall in Churchtown from 2–7.15pm, has been welcomed by councillors Simon Shaw and John Dodd, who had campaigned for the level of consultation to be increased in the Crossens area. The drop in sessions, which allow residents and stakeholders to discuss the proposals with the Environment Agency, have already taken place in Formby and Halsall but Meols ward Liberal Democrat, Cllr Dodd, said: “You have to understand that within living memory we have had flooding of some homes in Crossens from the pumped watercourses, so this is an issue of serious concern. “The Crossens Pumping Station is one the two main facilities for the whole catchment area and there is talk of reducing capacity there. The two original meetings, in Formby and Halsall, were of little use to the residents I represent.” Sefton Council’s environmental cabinet member, Cllr Shaw, added: “All along I have thought it is vital that councillors and concerned residents get some clear guarantees that this does not mean any greater risk of flooding in built–up areas. That’s certainly what I have been asking the Environment Agency myself.”

SANTA arrived in style at Southport’s Dobbies Garden World on Saturday (November 19), as he pulled up in a horse drawn carriage. The man in the big red suit was accompanied by The Champion’s competition winner, eight–year–old Joseph Kershaw from Southport, who joined him for the exciting entrance. The countdown to Christmas officially began at the Benthams Way store, as Santa greeted the crowds and was followed by a parade including members of the Dobbies Little Seedlings Club. He then made his way to the grotto where lucky Joseph, who was joined by his six–year–old sister Charlotte and mum Michelle at the event, became one of the first to visit and receive a gift.

New non–emergency number is launched

Established 26 years - No fees - Free valuation

A NEW non–emergency telephone number is being launched by Merseyside Police today (Wednesday). Sefton residents will now be able to dial 101 in situations where an immediate police response is not required, as Merseyside is joined by neighbouring forces in Cheshire and Greater Manchester for the switch. The new number replaces 0151 709 6010 as the non–emergency number. Shelly Dooley, force contact centre manager, said: “We are hoping that this new single number will make it easier for people to contact the police in the most appropriate way. With just two police numbers to remember – 999 if it’s an emergency, or the new 101 for reporting a crime that has already happened, or getting advice or raising any issues with

Report by

Natasha Young local policing teams – calling Merseyside Police has never been so easy. “Over 70% of the 999 calls that come to Merseyside Police are not responded to as a Grade 1 call, meaning that an emergency response is not required. The new number is easier to remember and will not only mean it is easier for the public to contact us, but it will also reduce the pressure on the 999 system, allowing us to deal with the most urgent calls even more effectively.” The call handlers who will operate the new number, as well as the 999 calls welcome its introduction. Neil Fogg, who takes calls for police in Sefton said: “It

is understandable that people may call 999, even if the call is not an emergency, it’s easy to remember and wherever you are you can talk to the police. The introduction of 101 should mean that people across the board get the best possible service from the force.” Operators can put the call through to the relevant force if it is something that has happened in a different force area. Ms Dooley added: “Local officers will still be available at neighbourhood meetings and local surgeries, and the public will still be able to contact them directly by phone or email.” The public are reminded to always call 999 in an emergency, where there is a threat to life or if a crime is in progress. natasha.young@champnews.com

David Does the book! Just in time for Christmas IT’S here – the ‘Christmas present with a difference’ you’ve been searching for. The Champ’s popular David Does column has been released as a book – just in time for Christmas. With illustrations by Southport’s own Carl Critchlow, (cartoonist for legendary DC Comics and the award winning ‘Thrud the Barbarian’) ‘David Does The Book’ takes a light hearted look back at a year of ‘the ordinary adventures of David Lonsdale’ and his family. With new material for Autumn and Christmas and packed with Carl’s heart warming and beautifully observed drawings, ‘David Does The Book’ is a perfect gift for fans of the column and anyone who enjoys a good chuckle. • ‘David Does The Book’ costs £5.99 and is available from Broadhursts Bookshop on Market Street, Southport. Signed and personalised copies costing £8 (including postage and packing) can be ordered by visiting www.david lonsdale.co.uk

Anyone who bought their Christmas cards in the January sales, or has already finished their Christmas shopping, can turn straight to ‘One Man and his Dog’ – we don’t need your sort round here – go on, off you go! For the rest of us normal people... David Does... Christmas Preparations (part 1) I have to admit that I’m an evil parent; I like Christmas to be a short burst of fun and loveliness starting with decorating the tree on the day the schools break up, and finishing on January 2. My lamentable lack of festive spirit at this time of year causes me no end of trouble. On December 24, I really cannot try to slip into the conversation again, the question, “So what do you want for Christmas then?” This year it must be different! I’m generally responsible for the food shopping in our house so I’ve decided that for the next five weeks I’m going to buy a few extra Christmassy items each trip – ready for the big day. So far this has resulted in me acquiring one large tin of Quality Street (which I’ve hidden in the front room so the children don’t find it), a box of biscuits for cheese (which I didn’t hide in the front room and has consequently been opened), and a packet of stuffing. This I have placed on the ‘Christmas shelf’ along with the unopened packet of stuffing from last year.

Then there’s ‘getting the Christmas cards written – so we catch the post“. I always start this task with the best intentions, and my friends who have surnames beginning with an A or B get cards every year. My attention span for the job is limited though, so my C to K friends are probably less sure as to whether I like them or not – and I have no friends with names beginning with an L or later. I know this is true because, as I seal the envelopes, I have for years put a little tick next to the names in my address book. Gary Wilson has not one tick next to his – and I really used to like him! Then there’s my enduring weak point – present shopping! My brother John has a great way of doing this. Each year he chooses one day – and one shop – and gets it all done. This removes the problem of there being too much choice, and that endless round of soul searching over which jumper to get for Uncle Bob. To be honest his presents are generally extraordinarily successful and well received. Admittedly the year he chose B&Q as his designated shop didn’t appeal to everyone, but nevertheless... One thing is for certain though – this year, although I may still occasionally buy the wrong size or colour, every last festive sock, bargain DVD and jar of moisturizer, every book and bottle of Baileys, will be bought in our own great town centre – so it can live to fight another day!

celebrations intensify with traditional beers and quizzes at the Sir Henry Segrave pub, Barons Bar and the Scarisbrick Hotel, all on Lord Street. Meanwhile, the Inn Beer Shop, also on Lord Street, will be serving Lancashire beers, a Southport cask ale and snacks. There will also be a number of drama students reading a selection of Lancashire–themed poems.

The event is a major event on the calendar of Friends of Lancashire and member Jeff Carter believes that it is important that all Lancastrians get involved in the day. He said: “It is important to rouse pride on our county day. Everybody born between the River Dutton in the north and the River Mersey in the south first and foremost are Lancastrians.”

Singing his way to the top

Karl Palmer with Radio One Breakfast Show DJ Chris Moyles

Report by

Adam Simpson

A TALENTED Southport singer, who has performed live to the nation on BBC Children In Need, has reached the final of a competition aiming to unearth an unsigned vocal superstar. Karl Palmer, 35, will be performing in Open Mic UK at The Willows in Manchester on December 4, where he will perform to judges from Radio One, regional press and record labels. The tenor said that getting to the final of the competition was “hard to put into words” and that he was delighted with the reactions to his performances. If successful, Karl will have the opportunity to compete for £50,000 and a recording contract in the grand final in front of around 20,000 people at the O2 Arena in January. But he is not one to be fazed by crowds having already performed to more than 10 million people during 2005’s Children In Need, when he was backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. And Karl admits that despite his recent successes, this still ranks as his greatest honour. He said: “Being on television in front of 10 million people was great. It was nice to go on a programme where other professionals were appearing and see how they felt about my performance.” Singing has always been a passion for Karl, who lists Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion as inspirations, and he currently balances performing at gigs during the night with looking after his children during the day. But he hopes that securing a professional contract will mean no more long nights on the road and plenty more nationwide exposure.

Sefton fundraisers boost funds for Children In Need

A HOST of fundraising activities and events took place across Southport last week, to boost funds for this year’s BBC Children In Need appeal. Steve Gainford and Kate Hartley from The Champion’s sales team were among those doing their bit for the cause, as they wore face paint throughout the day last Friday (November 18). Professional face painter Jackie Tiling, from the Scarisbrick Hotel Beauty and Make–up Emporium, gave up her time for free to transform the duo. As the pair continued with their daily duties, with Steve even taking to the streets for sales calls, they managed to raise £130, which was shared equally between Children In Need and Prostate Cancer. Elsewhere in the resort, staff member Rebecca Edmondson from Playtown on Ocean Drive was covered in custard...twice! Rebecca sat in a paddling pool full of the yellow gunge, while fellow staff and children poured custard over her in return for donations. More than £197 was raised, which was then matched by Playtown to provide a grand total of more than £394 for Children In Need. Staff and students at Marshside’s Stanley High Sports College also joined in the fun and raised £1,300 for Pudsey, with the figure still expected to rise. Pupils made donations to swap their school uniforms for their own clothing, while staff turned up in fancy dress ranging from The Wizard of Oz characters and Dennis the

Report by

Henry James

ENGLAND and Everton star Jack Rodwell helped flick the switch to turn on Southport’s Christmas Lights last Sunday. Organisers believe up to 25,000 flocked to the town centre to see The Southport Champion Christmas Lights Switch–on and Grand Parade. In the run up to the countdown a line–up of talented singers from the area performed on the stage and were introduced by Neil Newton, a radio presenter, producer and compere. The acts included: David Broe; Southport’s So Talented Dancers; Birkdale Primary School Choir; the winner of Southport’s Got Talent 2011, James Loughlin and Louise Grogan. Those who came to the event were also able to see the Grand Parade making its way down Lord Street. The parade was made up of charities, groups and businesses from across Southport. A crowd favourite in the parade was The Snowmen who had come from Bolton. Just before 5.30pm Jack Rodwell took to the stage for the countdown to the switch–on. He was joined by a number of people including the mayor of Sefton Cllr Paul Cummins, Cllr Lord Ronnie Fearn, Brea Carney Jones (Miss Southport 2011) and Cllr Mike Booth, cabinet member for leisure, culture and tourism. Youngster Lewis Hodge was picked out of the audience by the All Souls Dramatic Club to help with the proceedings. Jack Rodwell told The Champion: “It is a great honour for me to be asked to turn on the lights in Southport as I have lived here all my life. I was quite surprised to be asked but flattered. It is a proud moment for me. “Events like these are good for the town. “One of the organisers of the switch–on is a friend of my mum and he asked her to ask me.” Rodwell was speaking only days after making his debut for England. He came on in the 56th minute in England’s 1–0 win in a friendly against Spain. Rodwell started for England in the team’s friendly against Sweden, which they also won 1–0. He added: “It was a proud moment for me to play for England. It was the best moment of my career so far. I was anxious but my team mates made me welcome. “The team had two good wins. Picking up the two caps has given me the taste to get even more.” And when asked about his season has been going at Everton this year, the 20–year–old footballer responded: “It has been going well. I have been playing in a lot of the games. I hope

Code1046527 to stay focused and help the team get as many points as possible.” The Champion’s sales and marketing director Sue Dare, who is also a fundraiser on the town’s Christmas lights committee, said: “This year’s Grand Parade and Switch–On was probably the best yet and also produced on a very reduced budget. “Sarah Carter from Sefton Tourism and I would like to thank everybody who took part especially Toucan Events who managed the acts and staging and all the unpaid help we got from many people including many of The Champion staff who gave up their Sunday to help. “Southport is such a great place and the amount of people this event attracts is testament to its popularity. May I take this opportunity to ask for help for next year, as we need more donations to the lights fund in order to ensure another great switch–on.” When asked how important these events are to Southport? Cllr Mike Booth responded: “These events are very important especially at times like these. The switch–on also marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in Southport. “We are trying to encourage people to come into the town centre and stay here to shop rather than go elsewhere. “Looking at the numbers there are thousands here tonight.”

A SOUTHPORT resident has been asked to advise two new Government groups, which are being set up in response to the riots which took place over the summer. Phil McNulty, who previously spent 11 years as the headteacher of the Shorefields Community Comprehensive in Toxteth, Liverpool, was contacted by Bob Neil MP, the Paliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Communities and Local Government to ask for his help. Having been credited with turning the troubled school around when he took over the helm in 1993, as he moved it from “the brink of closure” with an intake of just 45 pupils up to 210 pupils in the face of problems such as regular break–ins and gang concerns, Mr McNulty went on to write the book ‘Extreme Headship: A Case Study in Educational Leadership and Social Improvement’.

helpful to the panel. The second is a cross departmental team dealing with the problems of gang culture. In the first instance, I have been asked to send a copy of my book, ‘Extreme Headship’, which details the revival of Shorefields Community Comprehensive in the face of innumerable problems, including nightly break–ins, daily intrusions, and racially divided warring gangs on the streets. “I had no previous knowledge of either of these governmental groups and, as a Southport resident, am very pleased to make a contribution.” This call for his help is not the first time the former headteacher has been approached for help. He previously advised Her Majesty’s Inspectorate and the incumbent Prime Minister, Tony Blair, as the head of a ‘school succeeding in challenging circum– stances, and helped to establish two successful behavioural units while being involved in regen– eration programmes in the Toxteth area. His book has also been used in Masters courses around the UK.

North West suffers from lack of railway investment I agree with Jim Sharpe’s view (One Man and His Dog, Champion, November 9) that there has been a strong bias towards the south with regards new investment in railways. Billions of pounds have been spent on the Thameslink and new Crossrail line in London. Much of the investment to reverse some of the cuts of the Beeching era have been in the south (for example the ‘doubling’ of lines that had been singled on the Cotswold line.) Even the proposed high speed line (if built) will initially favour London to Birmingham. But it is not just large scale projects. One of the single branch lines in Cornwall has had an additional ‘loop’ installed at a cost of less than £2million, which has resulted in a doubling of passenger traffic. This latter project is very similar in concept to the reinstatement of the Burscough Curves. Also, as Mr Sharpe pointed out, when the Liverpool to Manchester line is electrified, it will be operated by ‘hand me down’ stock from

Bank forms never arrived

the present Thameslink service, which is to receive new stock. It remains to be seen whether Merseyrail Electric will receive new trains to replace the present ones. Its current trains are now 30 years old and, I understand, the oldest passenger stock on the network. In the next programme of investment, it is disappointing that there are no plans to extend the excellent Merseyrail Electric network. The only proposed electrification in the north is the line from Liverpool to Manchester, the lines linking Liverpool and Manchester to the West Coast Mainline in a northwards direction, and the short stretch of line from Preston to Blackpool. Whilst these are much welcomed, one has to pose the question “why has it taken the central government so long?” Paul Gladney, Ainsdale

I read with interest your article in this week’s Champion on mail not being delivered in the Southport area. I live in Ainsdale and about a month ago my bank posted out some important forms that I needed to complete. They never arrived. I ended up going into the branch and filling out duplicates there. I thought nothing of it until I ordered two separate items off eBay a couple of weeks ago. I received neither, despite them being promptly despatched by the seller. The most recent incident of non delivery was when my friend posted me an important letter from the Wirral a week ago and that never turned up. Consequently, we are very worried and anxious about what is happening with our mail. I contacted Royal Mail on the phone number you provided in the article. They were extremely unhelpful. The person I spoke to said there was an issue in the Ainsdale area and they were looking into it. He then said there are no known issues in the Southport area. Needless to say I got nowhere. Andrew Iles, Ainsdale resident

Solution to missing post Further to your article on missing and lost post in The Champion. In the past three weeks my elderly father has recieved three pieces of incorrect post, only the house number was correct on one of the letters! The other two had other names. These letters hung around until my next visit, and then eventually I delivered one letter by hand, the recipient will never know the journey that letter took! The other two were re–posted. I doubt if many would go to such trouble in their busy lives. Could this solve the mystery of the missing post? Barbara Davies, By email

Thanks for your Governments have wasted billions help after my fall I would like to say a sincere thank you to all those people who helped me on November 3 after a fall on Lord Street.

The expenses scandal surrounding many MPs should have been a lesson for them to take heed of public opinion. Tony Blair and Grodon Brown’s Labour government sent hundreds of young British men and women to die in illegal wars. Now thousands of these heroes are being sacked. Brown failed to control the banks and billions of tax payers pounds were spent saving them. Public–owned banks are still paying millions in bonuses and our government is afraid to control the foreign–owned domestic energy companies who raise their prices despite crude oil costs falling by 40%. The Liberal Democrats led by Nick Clegg

pledged not to raise university fees, but when they got into government they reneged on this pledge. The Con–Dem coalition failed to keep their pledge on a Euro referendum and their promise not to raise VAT. Labour wasted £14billion on an NHS computer system that was not delivered and £5billion building regional fire centres that will lie empty and unused. If saved, council cutbacks and job losses would not be necessary. James A Doyle, Ainsdale

Support the grey pride campaign I am writing to ask your readers to join Anchor’s Grey Pride Campaign and sign our petition calling for a Minister for Older People to help end the prejudices faced by the elderly. We hope the minister would be called upon when the Cabinet discusses such issues as local authority cuts, pensions and funding for care. There is a Minister for Women and a Minister of State for Children and Families, but as it stands, older people’s issues are scattered throughout various Government departments. With older people making up 25 per cent of the population, it’s time older people’s voices were heard and that the prejudices they face were wiped out. So please sign the petition online by going to www.greypride.org.uk. Cathy Sutton, Southport

Charity to open shop in memory of Amy

Amy Holcroft

Code NA

A YOUNG Southport woman who died from bone cancer will have her final wish fulfilled next month, when a new charity shop opens its doors in the town. Amy Holcroft, who died last year aged 23, was “determined” to help the charity CLIC Sargent launch a store in the resort, as she benefitted from its services while receiveng treatment for her illness. But the former Stanley High School and Meols Cop High School pupil, who was first diagnosed with cancer when she was 21, sadly lost her battle with the disease before the idea came to fruition. Since Amy’s death her mum Carole has worked tirelessly with the cancer charity, which helps children and young people and their families, to launch a Southport store on Eastbank Street. Ahead of its December 15 opening she said: “Amy always had a passion for retail and volunteered in various charity outlets whilst working full–time. After being introduced to CLIC Sargent and benefitting from the many services they offered us during her treatment, Amy became

determined to get well and help the charity open a shop in our hometown. “Unfortunately, Amy didn’t survive to see the store project come together, but I am delighted that the charity has gone forward with the plans. It will be a lasting reminder of the brave fight she put up against the disease and the caring, compassionate person she was.” Jeremy Lune, head of trading at CLIC Sargent, is looking forward to the opening of the shop, which will be the charity’s first retail outlet in the north of England and said her family and friends have been involved in the project. He explained: “Amy died last year and her mum got in touch with our family support worker. We were enthused by her because we didn’t have shops in the area.” He added: “Amy was definitely an inspiration and it’s a positive thing that’s coming out of a sad story. “We’ve got churches and schools doing stock collections in the area, and it’s been amazing seeing how much she meant to her friends and family so I can tell it’s going to be a success.” natasha.young@champnews.com

Punch from drunken lout left drama student with ‘crooked smile’ Lynda Roughly

A PROMISING performing arts student has been left with “a crooked smile” after a drunken lout punched her in the face. John Kewin, who was angry after being rejected by another young woman just minutes earlier, struck the student knocking her unconscious and almost a year later she still bears a vivid scar. Judge Brian Lewis told 22–year–old Kewin that the victim, Katie Amos, has been warned she will be permanently disfigured. “Her smile is crooked and she cannot forget that because daily when she puts on make–up she concentrates on that area in an attempt to cover it up. “That is a dreadful legacy of the completely unnecessary violence you inflicted upon her that night.” Jailing him for 21 months, Judge Lewis said that after punching her Kewin “marking the coward you are” ran away. “She is still left with a vivid scar on the side of her face.

AN INVITATION FROM JOSPICE TO

LIGHT UP A LIFE

THIS CHRISTMAS

Jospice Caring for local terminally ill people

LIGHT UP A LIFE APPEAL 2011 Christmas can be a very special time for sharing memories and thinking of those close to us. Once again, this year, Jospice invites you to join in remembering loved ones and absent friends by sponsoring a light on our Christmas tree. The light up a life tree speaks to people in different ways, helping to remind us of family and friends who have helped light up our lives. The lights shining together suggest people bringing light and love into our own homes and neighbourhood. Our Christmas tree will bear your light dedicated to someone special and will remain lit over the Christmas season. The name of your loved one will be placed in the Jospice Book of Remembrance. Our tree service at Jospice will be held on Sunday 11th December 2011. Carols will be sung in the grounds from 4pm led by Sophie McQueenie and her students. A short candlelit service of remembrance led by Father Godric Timney OSB will follow at 4.30pm. You are invited to join us in the grounds here at Jospice from 3.45pm for the carols, service and refreshments. Please note the service is held outdoors and suitable clothing and footwear is advised. Our special thanks to our sponsors who have made this event possible:

enough for any young woman but particularly in her case given her choice of career where appearance is at a premium.” The judge pointed out that when talking to a probation officer it was clear he considered the victim to be the author of her own misfortune but this was “a corrupt approach to what happened.” He described it as “drunken loutishness” and added that “an attractive young woman has had her life blighted by what you did.” Kewin, of Stamford Road, Southport, showed no emotion as he was led to the cells. The victim was not present but her mother, Moira, wiped away tears. He had been due to face trial last month but at the last minute pleaded guilty to wounding. Liverpool Crown Court heard on Thursday, November 17 that on the evening of December 11 last year Katie and her sister, Sarah went for a night out with friends in Southport. After visiting various bars the group left a bar and walked along Waverley

Street towards Lord Street looking for a taxi. As Sarah Amos was talking through the window to a cabbie Kewin approached her and Katie came over as he was verbally aggressive. “He shouted at her and then punched her on the jaw causing her to fall to the ground and then he ran away,” said Michael Scholes, prosecuting. He told the court that shortly before Kewin had become “disgruntled” after another young woman, who had earlier been “over–friendly” with him in a club then rejected him when he climbed into her taxi. Mr Scholes said that Katie, who was 21 last Wednesday (November 16) suffered a V shaped 5cm laceration penetrating the full thickness of the skin into the underlying muscles. She was advised to do facial exercises but still has some lack of sensation and a crooked smile, which is particularly significant as she is a student of dance and drama. Her confidence has been dented and feels the injury will impede her career.

A NEW exhibition opened in Southport at the weekend, showcasing work by local, regional, national and international artists. Running until January 8 at the Waterfront development on the Promenade, the Waterfront Open features a variety of arts media including painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation. It is the latest in a rolling programme of exhibitions taking place as part of the Waterfront Arts Project, which has been a success since it first opened its doors in August 2010, attracting more than 20,000 visitors from the UK and beyond. The project’s leader, art history lecturer Tony Wynne, said: “We make every effort to ensure that anybody has access to our gallery; families with prams and pushchairs, people with motability aids. It must be one of the only artspaces in the UK where dogs are allowed in! We are proud of the fact that people have come into the Waterfront who have very rarely, or even never, set foot

To be really green we need cheaper and better railways THE proposal for a High Speed Rail Link between Manchester (with a sort of branch line to Liverpool) and London has met with concerted opposition from a concerted band of people very much against it. These are mostly people near whose homes this rail line is likely to pass, but also those who reckon it’ll despoil our countryside with its cuttings, embankments and tunnels. And I can see their point – up to a point. I am opposed to building on the Green Belt – though there are exceptions to any rule – near at hand the proposed, and long overdue, Thornton – Switch Island relief road for instance. But what really worries me is not that a lot of people are opposed the plan, but their reasons for it and their alternatives to it. One option is for more trains on the existing route. Good idea – except the West Coast mainline between Preston and London is already very near to capacity. Second option is noise. Well, if you live anywhere near a main road, let alone a

motorway, just listen to the continual drone of speeding traffic. A few trains an hour could hardly compete with that. And a railway line can, I think, add to scenic beauty. Just look at the number of paintings that quite incorporate a railway viaduct striding across a valley. In any case, a double track railway line like the one proposed takes up one heck of a lot less space than a six lane motorway. What really puzzles me about some of the most strident opponents of the High Speed railway though is that they keep banging on about the loss of Green Belt land, about the supposed noise, about pollution. Yet when someone comes up with a plan which would inevitably take a great many

car journeys out of the equation, replacing them by a clean electric railway, they froth at the mouth as if someone had suggested building a string of coal fired power stations along the line of the Pennines. Mind you, I certainly agree with a lady who thinks we need cheaper, not more, railways. In fact, of course, we need both. Because the Government leads the way when it comes to exhibiting two faces at once. On the one hand we should use our cars less and reduce our carbon footprint. On the other it is complicit in giving us the heftiest train fares in Europe. Oh, and of course, should the High Speed line actually get the go–ahead, it won’t actually be built for I don’t know how many years. Certainly many of the protesters against it (and for that matter we that back it) will probably be long gone. I’d certainly bet a rail ticket to London against a couple of gallons of diesel that I won’t be writing about its grand opening – if indeed there ever is one.

Festive shoppers told ‘be on guard’ carrying all valuables in one place, as pickpockets may be operating in large crowds. Credit cards that aren’t needed on the trip should be left at home, while house and car keys should be kept in a safe pocket rather than a handbag, so that properties aren’t at risk of being targeted if the bag is stolen. Margaret Jepson from Sefton’s Home Watch also reminded motorists to take extra care when leaving their cars unattended. As well as ensuring that all windows and doors are closed and the car is locked, she said: “Stop and put all items out of sight before you arrive at your destination. Sat

Navs, sunglasses, lap tops, mobile phones and even plastic bags can be a reason for your car to be targeted if left on display. “Be aware of people around you when you return with your shopping, if you are going to put the parcels or bags in the car and leave the vehicle unattended, while you continue shopping or for any other reason.” For further information, contact Margaret Jepson on 0151 777 3419 or email margaret.jepson@merseyside. police.uk. Purse bells, which will give a warning if anyone tries to steal a purse, are also available from Home Watch.

Pupils see little chicks hatch CHILDREN and staff at Southport’s Busy Bees nursery welcomed the arrival of some new chicks, having spent time nurturing chicken eggs. As part of the Living Eggs scheme, which provides schools and nurseries with all the equipment they need to look after the eggs before they hatch, the children witnessed the little chicks hatching in their classroom. The youngsters watched in amazement as nine chicks hatched before their eyes, revealing the tiny

yellow chicks who are now being looked after in their ‘brooder box’. The box contains water, food, heating and bedding to help the chicks grow into strong chickens. Nursery manager, Sharon MacKenzie, said: “It’s great that the children were able to witness the eggs hatching, it’s not something you get to see very often and it’s a fun way for them to learn about life cycles. I’m not sure who was more excited to see the eggs hatch, the staff or the children.”

Winter Fuel Payment plea to help vulnerable AN APPEAL has been launched to help Sefton’s older and vulnerable citizens stay warm, eat properly, and stay active when the cold bites this winter. The Surviving Winter Appeal has been initiated by the Merseyside Community Foundation after a number of people approached them wanting to donate their Winter Fuel Payment, a non means tested award to everybody over the age of 60, to elderly people in the community who might need it more.

by Adam Simpson Community Foundation for Merseyside’s Chief Executive Cathy Elliott said: “Surviving Winter is a campaign to encourage those who are willing and able to pledge part or all of their Winter Fuel Payment to help support those in their local community who desperately need extra support during the winter months, or for whom the Winter Fuel Payment is not nearly enough.”

BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips is one of a number of people who have backed the campaign by signing over over their winter payment. The Community Foundation have said that the money will be provided to charitable organisations with a track record of looking after older people in order to target those in greatest need. If you would like to donate your Winter Fuel Payment this year, visit www. localgiving.com/community foundation/merseyside.

Jaws scare for The Champ’s Aussie tripper by Cresswell Clark THE stunning beaches of South Australia impressed The Champion staff member Stan Park on a recent visit to Adelaide – but he was less than impressed by his close encounter with a shark. Stan and his family were warned that there were sharks in the water by a couple standing high above the Port Willunga beach, which is located about 45 minutes drive from the city. They were sceptical about the claim as there were lots of people splashing about in the turquoise waters of the gulf. However, as they watched from the Star of Greece cafe – and prepared to descend on to the beach for a swim and sunbathe on the stunning beach –a South Australian coastguard helicopter swooped over the water and hovered just 30 meters from shore with sirens going full blast. As the alert sounded, surfers and swimmers, many of the young families, dashed out of the water on to the beach.

The Great White shark The helicopter circled and he appeared to be driving the shark out to sea before roaring off along the coast. A few minutes later swimmers were back in the water where the shark had been spotted – including Stan – who dashed in for all of 10 seconds. “I just wanted to say I had been swimming in shark–infested waters,” said Stan. “I did about three

strokes and ran out again.” Stan was unable to get the shark identified but South Australia is home territory for the Great White and numerous other species of the predator. He added: “I was assured that no–one had been taken on this particular beach but I was told that there had been shark attacks on a nearby reef, so I wasn’t taking any chances.”

Royal date for new museum QUEEN Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh are visiting Liverpool next week to take a tour of the city’s new museum. The first port of call in the city on December 1 will be the new Museum of Liverpool, where the royals will take separate tours around the Museum’s galleries, including those due to open the following day on Friday, December 2. Before leaving the Museum, they will unveil a plaque commemorating their visit to the latest National Museums Liverpool venue, and sign the visitors’ book to mark this very special occasion; a landmark in the Museum of Liverpool’s own history. Phil Redmond, Chair of National Museums Liverpool said: “It really is an honour that the new Museum has been chosen to take part in this visit, which will also see the Royal Party visiting other locations around the city. “It will be a major highlight in what’s already been an incredible first five months for the Museum of Liverpool. We look forward to welcoming The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh to the city’s historic waterfront, and giving them a real sense of Liverpool, its history and its people all

under one roof.” In order for the visit to take place, the Museum of Liverpool will be closed to the public all day on Thursday, December 1, but will reopen on Friday, December 2 when the newest galleries will also be unveiled to the public. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will in fact be the first to experience the four new galleries, including The Great Port and Overhead Railway along with a 38 metre time traveller’s timeline, and a gallery dedicated to Liverpool’s King’s Regiment. David Fleming, Director of National Museums Liverpool said: “Six year old Finn O’Hare led the People’s Opening of the Museum of Liverpool back in July when we launched the first galleries. Since then, we’ve reached our half a million visitors mark, and the visitors are continuing to come in huge numbers. “The Museum of Liverpool is a brilliant success, and it is a world class museum that touches and appeals to everyone. “We are extremely proud to be sharing our success with The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh as they support us in marking the opening of the new galleries.” s.oconnor@champnews.com

Is that 999? I need a taxi! Report by

David Raven

PEOPLE in Merseyside have been using 999 as a taxi service. The county’s most ridiculous reasons for using the emergency services have been revealed and include a person walking into A&E with a paper cut and another who couldn’t cut their toenails. But it’s the trend for people calling 999 when they can’t get a taxi, which has alarmed NHS chiefs. The information has been released as part of Self Care Week, which aimed to encourage people to think about the wide range of health services available before they dial 999 or visit A&E. And in a bid to keep A&E and the 999 number free for genuine medical emergencies over the busier months, the NHS has disclosed some of their more bizarre calls in Merseyside this year. The list includes a person who dialled 999 to pick up a bank card from a friend who was in hospital and another called 999 because she had a broken tooth. Figures from last year saw 433,124 visits to A&E across Knowsley, Sefton and Liverpool and a 4.08% increase in the number of 999 calls received in the North West. Health chiefs are urging people to remember how crucial it is that emergency services are

The Mayfair hotel in Jersey is a great favourite with our guests, the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the shops of St Helier and the beautiful Howard Davis Park, offers excellent facilities combined with a traditional happy holiday atmosphere. Facilities include a lounge bar, coffee shop, dining room, indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gymnasium, steam bath, roof top terrace. We offer this as a Bed and Breakfast offer but you can also upgrade to Half Board, just ask when you book.

Ridiculous reasons for ringing emergency services are revealed only used for immediately life threatening or serious health problems. Dr Kieran Murphy, a Sefton GP, said: “With the increasing pressure on emergency services over the winter months, Self Care Week is an ideal opportunity to stress the importance of people using alternative local health services and taking care of themselves to ensure A & E and the 999 number are kept free for genuine medical emergencies. “When people are taking up the time of hospital and ambulance staff with minor issues which could be dealt with much closer to home, people with life threatening illnesses are not being seen to as quickly as they could be. “It is vital to remember that the ambulance service and A & E should not be used as an alternative to your GP if your surgery is closed. “If you require medical assistance outside of normal surgery hours this winter, Merseyside have a wide range of alternative health services available including GP out–of–hours services, walk–in centres and pharmacists who are qualified to offer advice and treat common, everyday illnesses.”

CHOOSING PERFUMES Perfume remains one of the most popular gifts for ladies – and it really doesn’t seem to depend on age. From tiny tots to octogenarian totterers, there’ll be a fragrance that’s just right and acceptable. However, anyone paying a visit to the average store’s perfume counter will find a bemusing selection to choose from. Armed with the knowledge that perfumes can work in different ways on different people, it can be a daunting task choosing the right fragrance, unless you already know the person’s preferences. So where do you start? Well in a way, just where you start when choosing any kind of gift. You look at the person it’s aimed for and you assess their lifestyle, likes and dislikes, character and occupation. For example, a sporty, outdoor type will usually prefer a fresh, tangy

perfume, perhaps with a hint of citron. These ladies will often adore flower perfumes, especially the sharper ones. They like their perfumes in cheerful splash form as well, so go for eau de parfum or body spray, rather than pure fragrance. Flower fragrances also appeal to the very young. Rose is a perennial favourite but by no means the only one. However, stick to the English ‘cottage garden’ flower fragrances rather than the more exotic ‘foreigners’ which tend to be heavier and a touch too sultry for anyone under the age of twenty or so. For your sophisticated career or business woman, whose whole appearance is designed to make a statement, only a very highly sophisticated perfume will do. For this woman, one of the latest American fragrances perhaps, or the subtlety of the more established French names, will be best to impart that

essential quality of femininity with its underlying layer of power and success. The older women get, the more definitive will be their taste in perfume. It is as well to exercise some imagination however, and not to assume the over 60’s will automatically adore eau de Cologne or lavender water, many do not! Warm, wood fragrances are often preferred by older women, sandlewood perhaps or some other, warm tropical scent. Don’t overlook the men in your life when choosing perfume. They wear fragrances these days too, and not just in the form of after-shave. As before, look at the lifestyle of the man concerned and try to match the fragrance. Male perfumes generally come in body splash form, so look for a large, flamboyant bottle. This is in fact the final clue to choosing perfume, always remember, the packaging is almost as important as the scent!

PREPARING TO SHOP Planning is the first secret of a successful shopping expedition at this time of year. If you accord it serious attention, you will be sure, before you begin, that whatever else happens, your Christmas shopping will be a success! First the gift lists - indispensable these if you’re not to forget someone. Write down your whole list on a carefully ruled sheet of paper. Leave space beside each name into which you can insert such things as likes and dislikes, what’s wanted for Christmas if any preference has been stated, and such mundane details as colour, sizes, etc. Leave also space into which you may enter the amount of money you have budgeted for each gift. You haven’t budgeted? Well you better had or you’ll end up far poorer than you’ve any need to be. Budgeting is the second secret of a successful Christmas. With it, you will be able to afford most of your needs. Without it, you’ll be paying for the celebration far into the coming year. Once you’ve put your lists together, your next task, if you are wise, will be to plan your shopping route. This is essential if you are not to wander around to no very serious purpose and without doing any serious buying. It’s so easy to get sidetracked at Christmas. The shops are so inviting, the displays so very distracting. If you want to wander round just gathering in the atmosphere, leave it for later on. First you have serious work to do, purchasing all the items on your list, as fast as you possibly can. Once the route is planned, dress for the part. You must be comfortable or your mind will begin to wander. Comfortable shoes are the order of the day, and your clothes will obviously be dictated by the weather. Remember however, you will be going in from a cold street into heated shops, and then back out onto the street, so choose your clothing carefully. Carry a large enough bag but remember at crowded times like these, pick-

BUY NOW AND BEAT THE CRUSH

There you are, back bent beneath the weight of full shopping bags, feet screaming for help, head bursting, purse woefully empty, shopping list still three-parts full, and you come face to face with one of these self-satisfied, irritating folk! “I did it all last January in the Sales!” they gloat complacently. You resist the urge to hammer them into the ground with the proverbial blunt instrument, smile sweetly and stagger on. Christmas goodwill has never been so far from your mind. Looked at in the cold light of a December morning, shopping one year, for the festivities of the next, does seem a touch clinical. Somehow the magic of it all gets lost in the business of saving money, being ruthlessly organised and avoiding the hustle and bustle. But there is an element of good sense in it. Whilst it is probably a bit extreme to shop one clear year ahead, there has to be some middle way. Now, for example, is not too late to start shopping early. The Christmas stock is coming into the shops fast, so whilst there is still a wide and varied choice, is just the right time to start. You could even save money this way because you will have all the choice and you won’t have to pay through the nose for expensive substitutes later on. Shopping early before the true rush starts will also save you wear and tear on your nerves, prevent the body battering of vast crowds, and spread the load more evenly over the coming weeks. Just think, if you get the buying over now, you’ll have the rest of the run-up to Christmas to bake those home-made goodies that you normally never have time to do. You’ll have time to wrap the gifts artistically for a change. You’ll have the energy to decorate the house as it’s never been decorated before. So be sensible this year. Be merciful to yourself. Buying now means, not just beating the crush, it means buying that extra time in which to really enjoy the coming of Christmas.

If you are planning an all-day assault, do have a good breakfast first because you need energy for these expeditions. When you plan the route, make sure you include a visit for refreshments half way through the day. Again you need your energy levels maintained if you are to be alert all of the time. Shopping for Christmas should be a supreme pleasure and an important part of your personal celebrations. Make sure it is by taking pains over your shopping expedition preparations.

WHY NOT SHOP LOCALLY THIS CHRISTMAS?

that you cannot buy in the smaller, local stores. Why then rush blindly into the unknown at a time when, of all times, we should know and trust the shops we are familiar with and use all year round? Possibly it is because familiarity does indeed breed contempt. There they are, the local shops and emporia, all year through, day in and day out, serving our mundane daily needs with quiet, caring efficiency, only to be ignored when Christmas rears its head upon the far horizon. And yet, if we only stopped to think and look, most of us would probably be amazed at what is on offer locally at this time of year. Local shops these days are sophisticated places. Many of them belong to buying co-operatives or operate under the umbrella of large wholesale houses. They can often offer the sorts of bargain prices the larger chains can offer, and they can certainly match them when it comes to quality. Even if some items do cost a few pence more, are you really saving anything travelling further afield? Transport costs money whatever mode of travel you employ. Then there is the matter of wear and tear on your own constitution such trips can impart. You have to contend with crowds, with unfamiliar

When it comes to Christmas shopping you will probably follow millions of others, heading for the nearest large shopping centre. There you’ll join the flood of humanity flowing around the shops in wave after wave. You may well land your catch but you’ll end the day, exhausted. You will probably have spent more than you intended. You will certainly have spent a great deal of time, and measuring the energy expended will be an impossible task. For some this is an activity they wouldn’t change for anything because it’s all part of Christmas shopping. But is it necessary for you? Do you really want to go rushing suicidally round crowded stores? Perhaps this year you might like to consider something less harassing? The answer is quite simple, don’t travel miles to the shops, - shop locally this Christmas. It is an odd thing but we all tend to forget the local shops when it comes to times like Christmas. Yet there is little that is available in the large chains

shops, less than concerned assistants, bulky parcels, packages and bags to carry around for hours, and the constant, nagging fear you just may lose your purse, or even have it stolen. And once you have completed your expedition, you still have to get the goods back home, safe and intact. This alone can dictate the nature of the gifts and goods you buy. None of this applies to local shopping expeditions. Parking is relatively cheap, sometimes free, and easy to get at. The shops won’t be too crowded, and you’ll be able to get help and advice from caring shop assistants when you need it. You can be sure you’ll get value for money and if you are honest, you’ll not be able to fault the selection. This Christmas don’t prepare to do battle. Visit your local shops and look at what they have to offer. You’ll probably be surprised, you’ll certainly be very happy. You won’t find the whole business of shopping for Christmas developing into the sort of deal that would have taxed the heroes of old. Learn again to enjoy shopping as the pleasure it was always meant to be. Take the family and make it a family event because that in essence, is what local shopping can be.

Don’t overlook music as a gift subject. A musical instrument, or a book of songs, could bring joy to a music lover. And for the complete novice, why not give a course of lessons? If your target is a horse lover, you could pay for a course of riding lessons, or for the non-car owner, a first few driving lessons will prove both gift and investment, and driving schools often provide gift vouchers. It’s all a matter of thought and ingenuity really. The obvious shops may well provide those perfect gifts. On the other hand, you’ll lose nothing by looking a little further afield and applying your natural ingenuity!

Gifts

With the coming of Christmas comes the necessity of touring all those old, familiar shops and shopping centres. Not that they can be faulted for stocking a great many of the things we buy at Christmas, quite the contrary! However, if the idea is giving you grief, it might be as well to consider a few, less frequented hunting grounds where the gift possibilities are a bit more unusual. Craft and seasonal fairs offer a great deal of potential, and there are a lot being held at this time of year. Hand-made gifts of all sorts make highly acceptable and original gifts, and by their very nature, are usually totally unique. Have you considered antiques and curio shops as potential gift sources? They usually offer a huge range of interesting and highly desirable items, large and small, that would fit into the lives of most people. Look for pretty pieces of silver, exquisite lace, lightcatching crystal and gorgeous pieces of porcelain and pottery to grace the most modern home. Garden centres are very fertile hunting grounds. They have plants galore of course, and garden implements and equipment. Many also stock gardening books and protective clothing, so they are always worth a quick look. For the motorist in your life, the local car accessory store might hold some secrets. On the other hand garage shops often have the most surprising stock and are well worth a look if you want something really unusual. Gift and souvenir shops, at or in, various

entertainment venues or places of interest, can provide unusual and ‘giveable’ gifts. So don’t overlook any local museums, stately homes or art centres. These last often provide excellent gift ideas as you can usually buy original works of art at very reasonable prices. Charity shops often stock specially imported gift ideas that are also well worth examining. And you might well find it worth enquiring at your local college of further education or special education centre. Often much of what is made in the course of tuition, is offered for sale to the public. Toys and handicrafts especially feature here.

Of all times of the year Christmas is the time for food, and the more special the food the better. Edible gifts are always welcome especially if they are composed of those rare and delicious delicacies one doesn’t normally buy. Chocolates and sweets are the more obvious edible gifts, for children especially, though there can be few adults who don’t appreciate a really beautiful box of chocolates, particularly the hand-made variety. But there are other possibilities.

Most of us spend weeks pondering, how to get everyone on our Christmas gift list, just the right gift. It also seems, the better we know a person the harder it is to choose the perfect gift. We ponder so much and so long we leave the actual buying till it’s so late, we are obliged to fall back on those triedand-tested standbys. These, whilst they will probably be gratefully accepted, will nevertheless lack that extra element of surprise so clearly mirrored on the face of the recipient. Somehow it seems to signal a lack of thought.

Thought of course, is the key to successful gift buying. They say, “it’s the thought that counts”, and it’s so very true. Unless we put careful thought into choosing gifts, they will go on, counting for nothing very much, as the years go by. What then is the answer? Constructive thought is what is required and for this you need to be as methodical as possible. Make a list of all those you intend to buy for. Next, list some salient facts about each person. Finally decide how much you intend to spend on each gift. This list should be your ‘bible’ during the shopping trips you make. Never let it out of your possession. Refer to it every time you look in a shop window, wander round a store or enter a shop. Be flexible in your perambulations round the shops. Be prepared to see and buy in unexpected places. Even your local petrol station can often come up with the perfect gift. One thing you mustn’t do is give totally unsuitable gifts. If you are buying for a child, make sure the toy or whatever, is suitable for the age group of that child. If you’re buying for someone on a diet, giving them chocs, is cruel. If a member of your family has a blood pressure problem, don’t give them booze. This may all seem fairly obvious but you would be surprised how often people fall into the trap of unsuitable gift buying, especially when panicking at the last minute. The most acceptable gifts are those that fulfil an unusual function in the recipient’s life, or which can be looked at with pleasure day after day in the ensuing year. Try to do the unexpected in your giving. If you give a book, try to get a first edition signed by the author. If you give something to ornament the house, try to make it an original work of art. If your target doesn’t have a hobby, give them a starter kit for one. If they are getting on in years, give them something to promote their comfort or make life easier day to day. This year the shops are fuller than ever before with wonderful things to give. There really is no excuse for not exercising intelligent gift giving this year. Such gifts will still be remembered next Christmas.

way. It usually comes in pretty oriental jars that make beautiful ornaments when the ginger has been eaten. There are so many wonderful edible gifts, it’s hard to make a choice. From turkey to caviar, smoked salmon to ham, spiced biscuits from the East, cheeses from Europe, old bottled port with a well ripened stilton, clotted cream from Cornwall, they are all music to the taste buds and compliments to those who receive. Edible of course implies drinking as well as eating, and there are lots of possibilities in this line. A fine wine from France, a liqueur from Spain, brandy from Italy, malt whisky from Scotland, should all keep the Christmas folk happy. For those who don’t drink alcohol however, there are fine teas and fragrant coffees, all packed in special boxes, and a treat at any time of year. In fact, if it is so difficult to choose, why not give a hamper? Most of the big stores send out hampers to order, or you can buy the basket yourself and make one up at home. In it can be a selection of pretty well everything here suggested, plus some even we haven’t thought of. Finally, if you are talented enough to make your own edible gift goodies, make them look really professional by buying pretty boxes and papers to wrap them in. It’s a very worthwhile touch that can make all the difference to a sure way of giving those you love or revere, a delectably, happy Christmas.

EDIBLE GIFTS

Christmas is the time for cakes, and they make very acceptable gifts. They can range from perfect fruit confections well laced with sherry, spirits or liqueurs, to fully decorated masterpieces that look almost too good to eat. Preserved fruits are popular and very exotic. Choose from jars of cherries, plums, figs, or any soft fruit, well preserved in brandy, whisky or rum. Pears in white wine, kumquats in liqueur, or crab apples in cider, all are quite delectable and will entrance any recipient. Crystallised fruits are very much part of this time of year. Buy them in boxed assortments, or all of one type. They are sweet, fattening and quite irresistible. Ginger is another Christmas delight. Buy it crystallised alone, in chocolate, or steeped in deep, thick syrup. Ginger root in syrup is a double gift in a

CHILDREN’S GIFTS

Do try to be imaginative however. If you are looking for a book, depending on the child’s age, consider some of the latest that make noises, pop up, or are accompanied by a cassette or CD. Toys that are educational fulfil two important purposes, they amuse and they teach, so they are well worth any extra they may cost. Children’s clothes also make lovely gifts because children today are far more fashion-conscious than they have ever been before. Again, go to a reputable store and buy the best you can afford. As well as being fashionable, children’s clothes need to stand up to a ‘bashing’. Finally equipment, generally this is for babies and again, you must buy the best. Make sure it carries all the usual safety devices and guarantees, such as not-toxicity of paints, etc. Whatever you buy as a gift for a child, if you spend time selecting and buy only from shops and stores of repute, you will never go too far wrong. You’ll certainly not waste your money.

Safety is enshrined in any reputable toy shop’s code of practice. It is enforced by Trading Standards Officers who spend a great deal of time inspecting toys each year. So when selecting a Christmas gift for a child always bear in mind the two cardinal rules, buy safely and buy appropriately and you’ll seldom go far wrong. Many safety considerations are obvious. They include ensuring removable parts like eyes and wheels, are in fact securely fixed and can’t be removed and swallowed. They ensure the construction of any toy does not offer unexpected dangers like sharp edges, or brittle, easily broken projections. They ensure soft toys are stuffed with safe, clean materials. They ensure clothing won’t strangle or choke. They also ensure paints and finishes are non-toxic. Buying appropriately is perhaps less clear. You will find however, that the majority of toys are aimed at a particular age range. Never buy toys for a child younger than they were designed for. A great deal of research goes into toy design and if the box says ‘for four to six year olds’, it means it is unwise to give the item to a child of three or younger. Of course children differ in their rate of development, so it is for parents and responsible adults to exercise the ultimate sanction. Appropriateness however, must always be borne in mind. Goods for children have never been more plentiful or more imaginative. Whether you are looking for toys, books, clothes, or equipment, you can usually be sure, if you buy from a reputable retailer, the quality will be good, the design will be attractive, and the price reasonable.

The Festival of Christmas never seems to lose its appeal, year after year, it is simply a time of pure magic. For the spiritually minded of course, Christmas is a deeply religious time. The Christmas story is a magical one in itself and perhaps that is what started it all? The early Christians did not celebrate the birth of Christ as anything special, being more concerned with Easter and what that meant to them. Christmas Day in early Christian Rome was merely a day without shows, races or spectacles taking place in the circus. Celebrations around the winter solstice have been going on since time immemorial. Our early ancestors held festivals at this time of year. The object of the exercise was probably to propitiate local gods, to ensure as many people as possible would survive the rigors of winter, without the comforts of civilization we all now take for granted. One last â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bingeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; before the troubles began was therefore only natural in a generally hard and cheerless world. As Christian missionaries spread the message of Christianity across from Rome and the Middle East, they found local peoples fairly receptive to the new religion. What they perhaps found a little more difficult was to get the enthusiastic converts to accept the more austere aspects of their faith. With understandable reluctance, people resisted the urgings to give up pagan festivals and feasts. Fasting and contemplation held little appeal. Pragmatism prevailed however and the missionaries adopted the existing feasts into the Christian calendar so honour on all sides was appeased. The missionaries had their converts and the converts retained their celebrations. The form these celebrations took depended very much on the wealth and position of the celebrants as well as the success or failure of the last harvest, whether they were at war with anyone, or the state of health of the community at large. Certainly apart from a few dances and big meals, very little of note that was different, took place until the 12th century. Special foods first appeared in Tudor times when mince pies, representing the infant Christ in his cradle,

SF

were made. The mince within represented the Magiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, and a tiny, pastry baby nestled in the sunken tops of the oval pies. Christmas pudding was a thick rich, porridgy concoction. It was representative of plenty about to become famine, and eating it was a ritualistic matter. Charms were placed in the mixture and finding one augured well or ill for the finder for the year to come. Coins meant wealth, a thimble meant spinsterhood, a ring meant marriage, a bell probably denoted a birth, and so on. Christmas cake has probably been around for a lot longer than either of the above. Yule logs are yet another reminder of the old beliefs. Burning one special log on Christmas Day was a ritual that entailed retaining all the ashes and placing them in the chimney the following year. This was supposed to protect the household from evil and bring warmth and comfort throughout the winter. Mistletoe has been inherited from the Druids for whom it represented mysticism connected with human sacrifice. Kissing beneath it is part of an ancient fertility rite that, if it is done properly, should entail the removal of one berry for every kiss exacted. Party hats have their origin in the masks worn at medieval celebrations when the Lord of Misrule danced before the meal. In their turn these masks probably originated in masks worn to fend off evil spirits that were surely waiting to enter homes and capture those within, in the long hours of darkness during prehistoric winter nights. Ghost stores have been told at Christmastime for hundreds of years. This is part and parcel of the ancient belief that unless people celebrated loudly enough to banish these wandering spirits, they would enter homes seeking souls in which to rest. Magical things too are said to happen. One story tells how on the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, the farmyard beasts and other animals, can actually talk. Of course the greatest magic lies with children. The toys they get, brought by Santa Claus or Father Christmas, are a source of intense excitement and expectation. For the child, every aspect of Christmas is touched with enchantment. Decorated trees, twinkling lights, sparkling decorations, all nestle into their

33

subconscious, and perhaps pluck a chord from the depths of their race memories. Are the toys perhaps a reminder of the charms given to children to help ward off spirits, goblins and fairies which might otherwise steal them away? Is the thrill of Christmas tinged with a thrill of fear? For children Christmas is all that is special, all that is wonderful in the world. It is a time when everyone seems to be nice to everyone else. In their enchanted world, how could it be otherwise? For the rest of us, in spite of the difficulties of life, regardless how hard all this bonhomie may be to keep up, the magic does linger on. After all, during the First World War, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fighting stop one Christmas Eve and enemies emerge to chat, exchange gifts and play a game of football? Was that not a manifestation of the miraculous in itself?

The whole Christmas season and its history is steeped in similar stories, strange happenings, and an odd atmosphere of goodwill and happiness amongst the most alien of men. How or why this occurs is just part of the mystery that is Christmas, the magic of a season so many have come to celebrate in some measure, regardless of religious beliefs.

Bid to protect red squirrels and Sefton’s woodland areas Report by

Adam Simpson A WINTER of work is ahead in order to safeguard Sefton’s red squirrel population and protect the area’s woodlands from disease. The majority of the work at Altcar Rifle Range, Ainsdale Sand Dune National Nature Reserve and Formby Golf Club will involve the removal of selected trees and the replanting of new ones in their place. Natural England, the public body of the government responsible for preserving and enhancing the country’s natural environment, are to coordinate the majority of the work, which Mike Downey from the organisation’s Sefton branch believes is necessary in order to maintain well–balanced woodlands. He said: “The work will help the red squirrel population by ensuring their future supply of food. “Also, Pine trees stop

Nature Reserve to remove logs. It is expected that the work will be completed by April 2012. In the meantime, visitors are told to remain vigilant as there will be heavy machinery and vehicles on site.

Actor in video link to school awards event HUNDREDS of pupils from Southport’s Christ the King Catholic High School were recognised for their academic, sporting and musical achievements when the school held its annual awards evening. Actor, David Morrissey, was guest speaker at the event, which took place at Southport Theatre, and delivered his speech via a video link from South Africa where he is working on acting and charity commitments. The star congratulated the youngsters for their achievements and gave an insight into his charity, CAST.

The school’s chair of governors, Alan Rayner expressed delight at pupils’ outstanding results, particularly in mathematics which, in addition to the successful A Level results, were the best in the school’s recent history. More than 1,000 audience members were also treated to an evening of music and dance, and headteacher James Lancaster said he was exceptionally proud to see so many happy, caring young people thoroughly enjoying their educational achievements. natasha.young@champnews.com

Drop in sessions gauge views on services Report by

Natasha Young

TWO drop in sessions will be held in Sefton during the coming weeks, to gauge residents’ views of the council’s Parks, Greenspaces and Coast and Countryside services. The sessions, part of Sefton Council’s consultation into slashing £20 million from its budget in the next financial year, are open to everyone across the borough. The 2012–13 savings, as required by the Government, will follow on from the £44 million already saved this financial year. Over the next few months, councillors will consider a wide range of options to further reduce the budget. These options will amount to more than the £20m required but it allows them a genuine choice in the difficult decisions they have to make in deciding how and which services are provided in the future. As part of this process, a number of saving options are being considered and consulted upon which effect Sefton’s parks, green spaces, the coast and countryside. These options are being discussed at two drop–in sessions which are open to everyone. The first event takes place at Eco Centre in Southport from 4–8pm on Thursday, November 24. On Thursday, December 8 a similar drop–in session will be held at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre from 4–8pm. At these sessions there will be displays about the proposals, and officers will be on hand to discuss things further. To have your say on any of these options and for further information, log on to www.sefton.gov.uk and follow the link for the Transforming Sefton pages. Residents may also access the questionnaires via www.engagespace.co.uk/sefton.

Christmas fair to raise money for kidney fund A CASH prize will be up for grabs as the Southport Kidney Fund holds its Christmas fair next month. A first prize will be £150 in a grand prize draw at the December 3 event, taking place at the United Reformed Church on Lord Street, Southport. There will also be other stalls at the fair, which will be open from 11am–2pm. The charity also raised £1,200 at its October charity night, and thanks everyone who helped and donated prizes.

A LIFESAVING defibrillator has been donated to Southport’s Stanley High Sports College, as part of a national campaign to put the equipment on school premises. Staff received training last week after generous benefactor Bernard Powell, a safety representative working with the cardiac charity SADS UK to help safeguard pupils and staff against Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) while on school premises, donated the defibrillator. The machine can be used to deliver a therapeutic shock as quickly as possible if a person goes into cardiac arrest, helping to restore the heart rhythm and giving them the best chance for survival. The school has also been given information on how to identify people who may have an underlying cardiac condition. The donated automated external defibrillator is easy to use and provides voice prompts to the rescuer. Anne Jolly, founder of SADS UK: The Ashley Jolly SAD Trust, said: “SADS UK are grateful to Bernard Powell for supporting the charity so

CHRISTMAS PARTY DAYS & NIGHTS CHRISTMAS FAYRE LUNCH The Four Sensations

Code NA

Motown and comedy night at RAFA Club POPULAR singing group The Four Sensations had the dance floor jumping when they appeared at Formby’s RAFA Club last Saturday. They sang all the well–known

favourites from The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons and Motown, writes Jenny Robson. Also appearing and compering the show was top Liverpool comedian

John Martin with his routine of hilarious (good clean fun) gags; “You smell nice, love; is that Cillit Bang you’re wearing?” A brilliant show!

Gilbert and Sullivan Society start rehearsing for new production MEMBERS of the Hoghton Players Gilbert and Sullivan Society have begun rehearsals for their forthcoming production of ‘Patience’. Traditionally written as a send up of the 19th century aesthetic movement (led by characters such as Oscar Wilde), this all–new production brings Gilbert’s satire up–to–date, by focussing on the music scene of the 1960s and 1970s, which saw rise of the hippy, ‘flower–power’ groups, through to the ‘glam rockers’ like Marc Bolan and David Bowie. As usual, Gilbert’s wit and Sullivan’s wonderful music remain as topical and humourous today as they did when first written. The show features a chorus of dragoon guards, singing the splendid “When I first put this uniform on” and devoted female followers (groupies) of the pop stars, who constantly (and annoyingly)

follow their heart throbs’ slightest movement. Ian Mackley (Directors) and Ceri Williams (Musical Director) have assembled an impressive cast, including Ian Dunning as the ‘Colonel’ and Phil Clieve as ‘Grosvenor’. Charlotte Rimmer makes her debut appearance in the title role of ‘Patience’. There are still a number of vacancies for male and female chorus and Ian and Ceri would be delighted to welcome new members. ’Patience’ will be performed at the Richard Colmer Theatre in Southport College from March 14–17 2012. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings, beginning at 8pm at the Scarisbrisck New Road Baptist Church

Hall (Southbank Rd entrance), in Southport. Please contact the Secretary, Diane Mackley on 01772 815508 for more details – and check the Society’s website: www.hoghtonplayers.com On December 3, the Hoghton Players will also present a sing–a–long concert of some of the most popular G&S numbers (as voted for by members) at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Hoghton Street, Southport. There will be a rehearsal from 2pm to 5.30pm, followed by the concert itself at 7.30pm. Word sheets will be provided for the audience to sing–a–long, but everyone is welcome to bring their own scores. Anyone wishing to take part in the concert, or to come and sing in the audience, or just to come and listen is asked to contact the ticket secretary, Jo Bailey on 01704 232301.

It will continue with the Pavane pour une Infante Defunte (1899 originally for piano) by Maurice Ravel (1875 – 1937) and Valse Triste (1903) by Jean Sibelius (1865 – 1957).

PRAYER

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN Never known to fail, oh most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful Vine, splendour of Heaven, blessed mother of the son of God, immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity, oh star of the sea help me, and show me herein you are my Mother, Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of heaven and earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to Succour me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power, oh show me herein you are my Mother. Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (X3). Holy mother I place this cause in your hands (X3). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal, you who gave me the devine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me. I want in this short prayer, to thank you for all things, as I confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. This prayer must be said three consecutive days, after that the request will be granted and the prayer must be 41278 published. P.D.

New MINI Roadster Fastest ever Astra to hit targets sports car fans showrooms next year THE ever–expanding MINI family can now count six members after the car’s makers announced it was adding a sporty new roadster to the range. Hot on the heels of the standard hatchback, the cabriolet, the Clubman estate, Countryman and the recently–launched Coupe, the MINI Roadster brings the traditional sports car formula of two seats and a soft top roof, and will compete with the likes of Mazda’s MX–5 when it goes on

sale next year. Smaller, shorter and lower than the four–seater MINI cabriolet, the latest version of the reinvented small car is promising a go–kart feel for keen drivers, the familiarly bold interior detailing, and sleeker styling. The new Roadster will start from £18,015 for the Cooper to £24,850 for the range–topping John Cooper Works version when it arrives in British MINI showrooms.

GILLIAN McKeith, I reckon, would be a big fan of this sporty little number from Renault. This latest version of the Twingo, you see, has been on a bit of a crash diet, in a bid to get rid of any uneccessary blubber and get into great hot hatch shape. In fact, the only place its piled on the pounds is in the price; this run–out Silverstone GP edition weighs in at £14,995 – more than two grand more than the standard model. But don’t think this is all limited edition badges and no trousers – this run–out version comes with a host of options chosen to appeal to the keen driver, including a stainless steel exhaust system and a performance monitoring system which lets you record your favourite boy racer stats, including your lap times and the amount of time it takes to shoot from nought to 60. Tip for anyone thinking of thrashing one; 8.7 seconds is your target time. Despite all the options and the wonderfully cossetting bucket seats, however, this is definitely a hatchback designed for thrills rather than frills, something you can’t fail to notice with the rather cheap–feeling interior. Spartan on equipment and clad in tacky grey plastics, it’s not a car you buy if you enjoy being pampered in your spare time. Where this car really shines is not on the motorway – where it’s just too noisy to be a comfortable companion – but on the B roads, where it’s clear that all the crash dieting and the company’s Cup chassis really come good as you dart from corner to corner. It is a fanatically fit streetfighter of a car, and always feels far more frantic than its 133bhp 1.6 litre engine initially suggests. While it’s a bit too raucous for my tastes – for my money I’d still go for the slightly more polished Suzuki Swift Sport tested earlier this year in The Champion – it is undoubtedly a true hot hatch in the old school sense, and more than capable of giving weightier rivals a run for their money. Just don’t load it up with too much luggage, otherwise you’ll undo all of Renault’s hard work!

No need to mind your head in Honda’s latest Civic model THE outgoing Honda Civic was always a car I’d buy with my heart. Yet – as anyone who’s ever tried to get into the back of one will testify – it’s absolutely not one you can buy with your head. I had this point proven to me at a Honda dealership last week, when I was invited to play Spot The Difference between the Civic you know and love, and the new model, which goes on sale at the end of the year. I haven’t driven the new model yet but after poring over both in nauseatingly boring detail I can tell you Honda has eliminated the old car’s biggest problem; that you bang your head if you’re getting in the back. The old car’s worst feature, amazingly, is a byproduct of its best; that its styling is such a brilliant aesthetic achievement. In 2006, just as Ford’s restyled Focus was losing its Blake’s Seven

looks, along came Honda with something that looked like it’d been stolen from the set of Bladerunner. Here was, in a field of humdrum hatchbacks, something which looked and felt genuinely radical and edgy. It’s just a shame the rear doors had a roofline which cut right across where your head naturally goes as you’re getting into the back seats. I don’t think I’ve ever got

into one without ending up with a very sorry feeling scalp! However, Honda’s engineers realised this, and set the best boffins at their Minor Injuries Avoidance Department to the task of eliminating it from the new model. There are, if you’re thinking of buying a 2012 Civic, many things which count in its favour, but its single biggest advancement is the saving you’ll make in packets of frozen peas and Elastoplast. The funding crisis hitting the NHS hard will surely be softened as the queue of Honda Civic rear passengers at Accident and Emergency departments up and down the land disappears as the Honda faithful flock to the new arrival. People who wear hats will no longer fear for their headgear if they’re asked to get into the back of a Civic. Whether the new arrival’s as appealing as the old one is something I’ll only know once I’ve driven it, and I’ve got high hopes for Honda’s latest effort. If its handling, performance and refinement are anything like as good as its rear door access, it’ll be a hit. For a car that’s retained the original’s wedgy shape, the Minor Injuries Avoidance Department have done a cracking job. • For more motoring news, reviews and opinions from The Champion’s correspondent David Simister, visit the blogs section of our website at www.champnews.com or log on to www.lifeoncars.blogspot.com

Port snatch win with Gray’s late double strike

Players win praise from opposing fans By Ron Ellis

By Ron Ellis Southport 2 Bath City 1 SOUTHPORT came from behind to defeat Bath with two late goals at Haig Avenue on Saturday in front of 1,021 spectators. The victory made it nine consecutive unbeaten games for The Sandgrounders with just one defeat in the last 15, a remarkable run and one that shows no sign of ending. A total of 36 points out of 45 is promotion form in anybody’s money and this is reflected in the club’s position in the Blue Square Bet Premier table, where they have risen to the dizzy heights of third place, with only Wrexham and Fleetwood above them. Liam Watson was forced to field a depleted team, deprived of key players by injury and suspension. Whilst The Romans were a much improved side from their early season line–ups, they bore little resemblance to the side that came back from 2–0 to win last season’s match with three second half goals. Godfrey Poku was the architect of his side’s best moves but, although numerous chances were created, nobody finished them off. A goalless draw looked likely until, in the 76th minute, a rare

Xmas Society or Company Golf Package

attack by Bath ended when their star player, Sean Canham, headed in Lewis Hoag’s centre and home fans feared the ‘Spectre of Bath City’ had struck again. But they reckoned without Tony Gray who surged into the area to slam in Shaun Whalley’s corner with a minute of normal time left. Then in stoppage time, Andy Owen’s long throw caused chaos in the Bath defence and up popped Gray to hook the ball into the net for the winner. The Yellows will be without the services of Zac Aley, who has been recalled by Blackburn Rovers, when they travel to 18th placed Stockport County on Saturday. Alan Moogan is available, however, after suspension. Since Southport beat County in the FA Cup last month, Dietmar Hamann has been replaced as manager by Jim Gannon. Gannon was with the club from 2005–9 when he took them into League One, only for administration to cost him his job and, ultimately, the club’s Football League status. Gannon’s new title is director of football and, in an interesting development, two members of the supporters’ club have been offered seats on the board of directors. Forest Green Rovers are the visitors to Haig Avenue next Tuesday.

A KETTERING Town fans’ website has praised Southport players’ post match behaviour after a recent match. A post on the site stated: ‘After the recent defeat at home to Southport, a selection of casually dressed Kettering players trudged into the bar and took up their positions in a shadowy far corner, each of them tweeting and texting without ever lifting their heads even to communicate with each other. ’Conversely the away team, resplendent in their club ties and blazers, proudly chatted with home and away supporters alike. Their demeanour was impeccable. To me it was nothing to do with the result and everything to do with team spirit and self–worth.’ The Trust in Yellow coach to Forest Green next Tuesday leaves Haig Avenue at 12.30pm, priced £15 non–members. Call Alan Scarisbrick on 07980 911693. • BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips is the newest recruit to Southport FC’s band of supporters. The popular broadcaster hosted a marathon session for the station’s Children in Need programme in which Southport FC were invited, along with Liverpool, Everton and Tranmere Rovers, to persuade Roger to take up the mantle and support one of them. With several one liners, community director, Haydn Preece, won the day, and the club is looking to invite Roger, now an adopted Sandgrounder, to Haig Avenue for a Blue Square Bet Premier game sometime soon. Maybe this will encourage Radio Merseyside to give more prominence to the area’s leading non–league side in the manner of many other BBC local stations which regularly feature full match commentaries.

FORMBY’S losing streak continued with Saturday’s home defeat at the hands of Leek CS Old Boys. The Old Boys opened the scoring only seven minutes in but Formby new man Andrew Ford instantly equalised. The Squirrels the took control of the game, playing their swift controlling style with a superb attacking edge that saw innumberable shots on target,

including a first half goal for skipper Paul Speed. Leek, conversely, relied on barging and bluster, committing many fouls and playing some of the most cynical football ever seen on that pitch. This wore Formby down and, despite earning a penalty, Formby lost 4–3. Tuesday evening sees the glint of silverware on the horizon as Formby travel to local rivals Bootle for the

MOD CHIEFS UNDER FIRE FOR LAND SALE £400,000 ‘ransom’ fee paid by military to buy right of way to Altcar Training Camp SOME £400,000 of taxpayer’s money was spent securing access to a military training camp which has stood for 150 years after a road leading up to it it was sold to a private company by mistake. It was described as a ‘ransom price’ and a ‘massive waste of public money’ after Ministry of Defence officials were forced to hand over the sum for right of way to Altcar Training Camp. The area was originally owned by the British Rail Property Board but it was put up for auction after it was seen as surplus land. The company, Firwood Homes, outbid cadets representatives for the land which unbeknown to them contained the access road to Altcar Training Camp. A Freedom of Information request submitted by The Champion reveals today how the North West Reserve Force and Cadets Association gave

David Raven Hourwatch Ltd the £400,000 plus VAT and a ‘small piece of land’ for a permanent right of way. In order to access the camp in 2007, military officials were at the mercy of landowners and after a legal wrangle they were forced to hand over the substantial amount which has now been disclosed. A Ministry of Defence official said: “From our records we can confirm that the permanent right of way in perpetuity for the road used to access the Altcar Training Camp was purchased by the North West Reserve Force & Cadets Association for a fee of £400,000 (plus VAT) from Hourwatch Ltd.Cont. inside.

Police charge Formby man after £900k Spain drugs haul is seized Report by

Stephanie O’Connor

THREE men have been charged in connection with a £900,000 drugs haul imported from Spain. Sean Page, 40, of Cable Street, Formby, Liam McGuire, 27, of Woodlands View, Crosby and Robert Labio, 42, of Benedict Street, Bootle were arrested following a joint operation by Merseyside Police, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and Garda Siochanna. Officers from the specialist Merseyside Police Matrix team executed search warrants at three addresses in Formby, Crosby, and Bootle, and arrested six people (four men aged 40, 41, 29 and 18 years, and two women aged 42 and 37 years). The PSNI arrested two men, aged 35 and 32 years.

The arrests came after an investigation into the importation and supply of controlled drugs from Spain to the United Kingdom and onwards distribution into Belfast and Dublin. During the investigation, police have seized more than three quarters of a tonne of cannabis and amphetamine, with a wholesale value of more than £900,000, in Spain, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. Cash totalling 215,000 Euros (£189,450) has also been seized. Sean Page has been charged with conspiracy to supply cannabis and conspiracy to conceal criminal property. Liam McGuire has been charged with conspiracy to supply cannabis and conspiracy to conceal criminal property. And Robert Labio has been charged with conspiracy to supply cannabis and conspiracy to conceal criminal property. A 37–year–old woman has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

A large amount of cannabis was seized during a cross force police investigation

by Stephanie O’Connor June this year they joined Crosby Swimming Club, where they currently train for two and a half hours a week. Being such strong swimmers and the need for a challenge is what made them decide that they wanted to take part in this annual event organised by Aspire. Aspire is a charity that works with patients and their families following a spinal cord

injury. This year over 4,000 people across the UK are swimming for Aspire and every penny raised will go towards helping someone, possibly a child, to be able to live as normal a life as possible following a spinal injury.” • To sponsor Emma and Rebecca, who are members of Crosby Swimming Club, visit www.justgiving.com/Emma–and–Rebecca–Clark.

Churches Together are hosting ‘The Village Nativity’ which they say will ‘bring the real meaning and spirit of Christmas to Formby’ at 11.00 am on Saturday, December 10. The play is organised by the churches as a gift to the Formby community. It has

been specially written to be performed outdoors in Formby’s main street, Chapel Lane. The acting areas in the road will be raised 4 feet above ground level to give the audience on the pavements a great view. There will be seating for 200 early–birds on the front row and a dedicated viewing area for wheelchair users, by the HSBC bank.

It takes more than 100 people, working together, to put on the Village Nativity. The 40 strong cast is drawn from all the churches, all the High schools and also from the wider Formby community. More than 100 of the local primary children will be there, in full costume, with their teachers and parents and will be singing carols from 10.45am.

High school celebrates success...

Matt Abrams performed a trumpet solo at the ceremony Code NA

FORMBY High School celebrated its record–breaking examination results and special achievement awards at their annual presentation evening held at the school. Students, parents, staff and governors attended the ceremony on Friday November 18. Guest of Honour, Bill Esterson, MP for Sefton Central, commended all the students on their outstanding achievements and encouraged them to carry this “determination to achieve” through to the next stages in their lives as the world faces greater competition for jobs, especially in the youth sector. The 2011 GCSE students achieved the best examination performance in the history of the school (83% A* to C including English and Maths)

and also achieved accolades in sports, performing arts and the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme. Whilst a separate celebrations event for Sixth Form students is planned for December, many of the students were present to receive special achievement awards (A Level results were also the best in the school’s history with 63% achieving grades A*–B, with 100% A–E). Among them Matt Abrams who received the “Margaret Eva James Award for Music” and delivered a moving solo trumpet performance. Achievements from all year groups were celebrated with awards in sport, English, Maths, Geography as well as endeavour, application and contribution to the school.

“The sale also included the transfer of a small piece of land owned by the RFCA to Hourwatch Ltd. To this end the MOD are not responsible for any ongoing charges or costs associated with the use of this road.” A source close to the deal, who didn’t want to be named, told The Champion: “It was a pure ransom price, not good value, but the cheapest practical option if we wanted to keep Altcar in use. “Eventually, a land swap took place and the price was negotiated down for a permanent right of way. It was a total outrage. “I think the rent was 25k pa but, in due course, they could set whatever rent they wanted. There was no limit. The RFCA did negotiate hard with them, but it was basically a ransom. “At one stage millions was wanted for the land but that was seen to be ridiculous. “RFCA looked at the capital cost of moving the guard room to the river side road access and all sorts of other options.” “It was a massive waste of public money, we probably spent more than the £400k total on legal fees and advisers.”

Burglar awaits sentencing after breaking in to Formby pensioner’s home A BURGLAR has admitted breaking into the home of a 98–year–old man in Formby. Liverpool Crown Court heard on Tuesday, November 15 that 29–year–old Richie Waite had gone to visit his grandmother at her sheltered accommodation home on Hilary Court, Formby. But while he was there, Waite broke into the flat of one of her neighbours – a vulnerable 98–year–old man. Waite, of Barnsbury Road, Walton, yesterday pleaded guilty to burglary with intent to steal on August 12.

Campaigner calls for safer crossing on village road by Stephanie O’Connor

Friday mornings 9am to 10am. Val Bayliff Wellbeing Co–Ordinator said: “This is an exciting new opportunity for older people in Sefton to come and join us and have some fun, whilst also improving their health and wellbeing. “Alongside the swimming we will also be delivering a number of Tea Dances, Chair Based Exercise Classes, and some Stress Awareness days. ”

speed, which is an issue in itself. But that makes it all the more difficult to get across. “The issue has been raised with me and the Labour Action Team by pedestrians in that area, including some older people who struggle to make it across, as well as a number of parents who say it is extremely dangerous to ferry young children across. As this road is close to a nearby school, the road can obviously be very dangerous.” Peter has raised the issue with Formby’s MP Bill Esterson who agrees with the residents’ concerns. Mr Esterson said: “There is no crossing at all along that particular road which is obviously a major concern. I

fully support Peter’s campaign to get a crossing installed.” Peter is now in the process of contacting the council to ascertain if there is any funding available for the installation of a crossing along the stretch of road. He added: “I will be speaking to Ravenmeols Labour Councillor Catie Page to see what advice she can give me with regard to getting funding for the crossing, particularly to enquire if there is any budget in the Area Committee funds for this. “It is clear from the communications I have had with the residents around Southport Road that they think a crossing is urgently needed and I will do all I can to push for a crossing to be installed.”

BOOTLE based Charity, Sefton OPERA, have secured funding from NHS Sefton to provide a range of health and wellbeing activities for older people in North and South Sefton. As part of this funding they have been able to start a number of new activities, including Learn to Swim and Improve Confidence classes at Bootle Leisure Centre on Fridays 9am to 10am, and also a class starting in the New Year at Formby Pool on

HOGHTON ST. H

A FORMBY campaigner has called for a new pedestrian crossing to be installed on a busy road leading into the village. Peter Maguire told the Champion he had spoken to a number of residents in and around Southport Road who say they are ‘taking their lives in their own hands’ each and every time they cross the road because there is no crossing. Peter, who is a candidate for Ravenmeols Ward at next May’s local elections said the road which is used by many elderly people as well as young children on their way to school, is very busy. He said: “Living in Formby I’ve seen for myself how difficult it can be to cross that road. There are cars which come hurtling off the bypass onto Southport Road at

Jeremy Rawson, defending, said that while Waite’s victim was inside his home, there was no confrontation and his client did not take anything. The court heard Waite already has previous convictions for burglary. Judge Stephen Clarke further remanded Waite into custody to await sentencing on December 2 to enable reports to be prepared. Judge Clarke warned him: “The nature of this offence means it crosses the custody threshold.”

A FORMBY resdient has used a dash of electronic trickery to making his feeling known about a large sauce advertisment at Freshfield station. Chris Vere of Montagu Road changed the lettering on the bright orange add for Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce to read ‘EYESORE’ He said: “A dash of electronic ‘sauce’ has been used to make local residents feelings known after £15,000 has been spent to install a huge advertising poster at Freshfield railway station. “Banksy could do it for us for real – but Photoshop costs less! Let other residents in the Merseyrail area beware of plans for

I agree with Jim Sharpe’s view (One Man and His Dog, Champion, November 9) that there has been a strong bias towards the south with regards new investment in railways. Billions of pounds have been spent on the Thameslink and new Crossrail line in London. Much of the investment to reverse some of the cuts of the Beeching era have been in the south (for example the ‘doubling’ of lines that had been singled on the Cotswold line.) Even the proposed high speed line (if built) will initially favour London to Birmingham. But it is not just large scale projects. One of the single branch lines in Cornwall has had an additional ‘loop’ installed at a cost of less than £2million, which has resulted in a doubling of passenger traffic. This latter project is very similar in concept to the reinstatement of the Burscough Curves. Also, as Mr Sharpe pointed out, when the Liverpool to Manchester line is electrified, it will be operated by ‘hand me down’ stock from the present Thameslink service, which is to

PICTURE of the week

receive new stock. It remains to be seen whether Merseyrail Electric will receive new trains to replace the present ones. Its current trains are now 30 years old and, I understand, the oldest passenger stock on the network. In the next programme of investment, it is disappointing that there are no plans to extend the excellent Merseyrail Electric network. The only proposed electrification in the north is the line from Liverpool to Manchester, the lines linking Liverpool and Manchester to the West Coast Mainline in a northwards direction, and the short stretch of line from Preston to Blackpool. Whilst these are much welcomed, one has to pose the question “why has it taken the central government so long?” This is just one further illustration of how the north has been neglected.

Train station needs two lifts Re: Champion report (November 9, page 1) entitled You Don’t Need a Lift, claims Minister“. Formby’s railway station needs two lifts. It needs one, east of the ticket office for the Liverpool platform and one west of the ticket office for the Southport platform. The rail station also needs gaps, free of live rails, for safe crossings from one platform to the other platform. Helping disadvantaged residents and visitors is surely a priority. Hence, I hope that Bill Esterson MP succeeds with his campaign for better facilities for Formby’s rail station. SG McLardy, Formby.

An ode to a great character Many of us in Formby were saddened when one of our town’s characters, Steve Morris, passed away recently. He was well known and well respected and his life and character are excellently set out in the poem below, written by a friend. Steve A bright young man with a journey to find, Who started at Woodward’s a trade on his mind, But not so long after to Liverpool Dock, He transferred to work by the great Liver clock. Still restless and searching he went ‘on the bins’ To a job countless others wouldn’t do for their sins, But not so for Steve – he’d at last found his dream, In a difficult job with a hard working team. And he loved every moment, up with the lark, Heaving and humping from morning till dark, He soon found his niche and made friends where he’d go, Year in and year out through the sun and the snow.

Thanks for your help after my fall I would like to say a sincere thank you to all those people who helped me on November 3 after a fall on Lord Street. Sally, John, who stayed with me to hospital, the lady with the blanket, and the policeman, hearing that there would be a 20 minute delay for the ambulance, took to me hospital. Where they continued the good work and kept me overnight. V Clancy, Southport

Help us fight boundary division I wish to thank the thousands of Formby residents who readily signed our petition headed ‘Don’t Split Our Community.’ The sheets will be handed to the Boundary Commission as part of our four part presentation which will include: • 15 minute verbal address to the Boundary Commission at The Radisson Blu Hotel in Liverpool on October 20, 2011. • Gathering names on a petition, as above, in the village. • Raising an e–mail petition online Hundreds of letters from Formby residents

must be submitted to The Boundary Commission setting out reasons why the two Formby Wards of Harington and Ravenmeols should not be split asunder. We all need to take ownership of this as a community. Write to: The Boundary Commission for England, 36 Great Smith Street, London SW1P 3BQ. The deadline is December 5. Barry Griffiths, By email

The most well known face on all Sefton’s streets, Held in affection by all those he’d meet, Observant, intelligent and friend to us all, Yet a private and unconventional soul. Steve gave a lifetime of service to all, Diligent, helpful he’d answer each call, And no one could ever produce too much grot, He’d move it all somehow whatever you’d got. Then sadly the time came, the job took its toll, Ill health forced retirement to this kind generous soul, No longer the bin rounds the hub of his life, No company at home with no job and no wife. The end came so suddenly one Saturday night, Alone on his sofa in the dim fading light, And a wandering star from our lives took its leave, When Formby turned out to say farewell to Steve. Dominic Dickson, By e–mail

CHOOSING PERFUMES Perfume remains one of the most popular gifts for ladies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to depend on age. From tiny tots to octogenarian totterers, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a fragrance thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just right and acceptable. However, anyone paying a visit to the average storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfume counter will find a bemusing selection to choose from. Armed with the knowledge that perfumes can work in different ways on different people, it can be a daunting task choosing the right fragrance, unless you already know the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferences. So where do you start? Well in a way, just where you start when choosing any kind of gift. You look at the person itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aimed for and you assess their lifestyle, likes and dislikes, character and occupation. For example, a sporty, outdoor type will usually prefer a fresh, tangy

perfume, perhaps with a hint of citron. These ladies will often adore flower perfumes, especially the sharper ones. They like their perfumes in cheerful splash form as well, so go for eau de parfum or body spray, rather than pure fragrance. Flower fragrances also appeal to the very young. Rose is a perennial favourite but by no means the only one. However, stick to the English â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cottage gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flower fragrances rather than the more exotic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;foreignersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which tend to be heavier and a touch too sultry for anyone under the age of twenty or so. For your sophisticated career or business woman, whose whole appearance is designed to make a statement, only a very highly sophisticated perfume will do. For this woman, one of the latest American fragrances perhaps, or the subtlety of the more established French names, will be best to impart that

essential quality of femininity with its underlying layer of power and success. The older women get, the more definitive will be their taste in perfume. It is as well to exercise some imagination however, and not to assume the over 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will automatically adore eau de Cologne or lavender water, many do not! Warm, wood fragrances are often preferred by older women, sandlewood perhaps or some other, warm tropical scent. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook the men in your life when choosing perfume. They wear fragrances these days too, and not just in the form of after-shave. As before, look at the lifestyle of the man concerned and try to match the fragrance. Male perfumes generally come in body splash form, so look for a large, flamboyant bottle. This is in fact the final clue to choosing perfume, always remember, the packaging is almost as important as the scent!

PREPARING TO SHOP Planning is the first secret of a successful shopping expedition at this time of year. If you accord it serious attention, you will be sure, before you begin, that whatever else happens, your Christmas shopping will be a success! First the gift lists - indispensable these if you’re not to forget someone. Write down your whole list on a carefully ruled sheet of paper. Leave space beside each name into which you can insert such things as likes and dislikes, what’s wanted for Christmas if any preference has been stated, and such mundane details as colour, sizes, etc. Leave also space into which you may enter the amount of money you have budgeted for each gift. You haven’t budgeted? Well you better had or you’ll end up far poorer than you’ve any need to be. Budgeting is the second secret of a successful Christmas. With it, you will be able to afford most of your needs. Without it, you’ll be paying for the celebration far into the coming year. Once you’ve put your lists together, your next task, if you are wise, will be to plan your shopping route. This is essential if you are not to wander around to no very serious purpose and without doing any serious buying. It’s so easy to get sidetracked at Christmas. The shops are so inviting, the displays so very distracting. If you want to wander round just gathering in the atmosphere, leave it for later on. First you have serious work to do, purchasing all the items on your list, as fast as you possibly can. Once the route is planned, dress for the part. You must be comfortable or your mind will begin to wander. Comfortable shoes are the order of the day, and your clothes will obviously be dictated by the weather. Remember however, you will be going in from a cold street into heated shops, and then back out onto the street, so choose your clothing carefully. Carry a large enough bag but remember at crowded times like these, pick-

“Shop Early for Christmas,” is probably one of the most annoying phrases in the English language. What is even more annoying is coming face to face with one of those persons who have actually done so.

BUY NOW AND BEAT THE CRUSH

There you are, back bent beneath the weight of full shopping bags, feet screaming for help, head bursting, purse woefully empty, shopping list still three-parts full, and you come face to face with one of these self-satisfied, irritating folk! “I did it all last January in the Sales!” they gloat complacently. You resist the urge to hammer them into the ground with the proverbial blunt instrument, smile sweetly and stagger on. Christmas goodwill has never been so far from your mind. Looked at in the cold light of a December morning, shopping one year, for the festivities of the next, does seem a touch clinical. Somehow the magic of it all gets lost in the business of saving money, being ruthlessly organised and avoiding the hustle and bustle. But there is an element of good sense in it. Whilst it is probably a bit extreme to shop one clear year ahead, there has to be some middle way. Now, for example, is not too late to start shopping early. The Christmas stock is coming into the shops fast, so whilst there is still a wide and varied choice, is just the right time to start. You could even save money this way because you will have all the choice and you won’t have to pay through the nose for expensive substitutes later on. Shopping early before the true rush starts will also save you wear and tear on your nerves, prevent the body battering of vast crowds, and spread the load more evenly over the coming weeks. Just think, if you get the buying over now, you’ll have the rest of the run-up to Christmas to bake those home-made goodies that you normally never have time to do. You’ll have time to wrap the gifts artistically for a change. You’ll have the energy to decorate the house as it’s never been decorated before. So be sensible this year. Be merciful to yourself. Buying now means, not just beating the crush, it means buying that extra time in which to really enjoy the coming of Christmas.

At our Southport salon, our stylists offer a full range of hairdressing for people of all ages including:

hairdressers where the customer comes first.

pockets are having a field day. Don’t be a victim, be sure your purse, wallet, cheque book and credit cards are safely enclosed, and in your possession at all times. If you are planning an all-day assault, do have a good breakfast first because you need energy for these expeditions. When you plan the route, make sure you include a visit for refreshments half way through the day. Again you need your energy levels maintained if you are to be alert all of the time. Shopping for Christmas should be a supreme pleasure and an important part of your personal celebrations. Make sure it is by taking pains over your shopping expedition preparations.

New MINI Roadster Fastest ever Astra to hit targets sports car fans showrooms next year THE ever–expanding MINI family can now count six members after the car’s makers announced it was adding a sporty new roadster to the range. Hot on the heels of the standard hatchback, the cabriolet, the Clubman estate, Countryman and the recently–launched Coupe, the MINI Roadster brings the traditional sports car formula of two seats and a soft top roof, and will compete with the likes of Mazda’s MX–5 when it goes on

sale next year. Smaller, shorter and lower than the four–seater MINI cabriolet, the latest version of the reinvented small car is promising a go–kart feel for keen drivers, the familiarly bold interior detailing, and sleeker styling. The new Roadster will start from £18,015 for the Cooper to £24,850 for the range–topping John Cooper Works version when it arrives in British MINI showrooms.

GILLIAN McKeith, I reckon, would be a big fan of this sporty little number from Renault. This latest version of the Twingo, you see, has been on a bit of a crash diet, in a bid to get rid of any uneccessary blubber and get into great hot hatch shape. In fact, the only place its piled on the pounds is in the price; this run–out Silverstone GP edition weighs in at £14,995 – more than two grand more than the standard model. But don’t think this is all limited edition badges and no trousers – this run–out version comes with a host of options chosen to appeal to the keen driver, including a stainless steel exhaust system and a performance monitoring system which lets you record your favourite boy racer stats, including your lap times and the amount of time it takes to shoot from nought to 60. Tip for anyone thinking of thrashing one; 8.7 seconds is your target time. Despite all the options and the wonderfully cossetting bucket seats, however, this is definitely a hatchback designed for thrills rather than frills, something you can’t fail to notice with the rather cheap–feeling interior. Spartan on equipment and clad in tacky grey plastics, it’s not a car you buy if you enjoy being pampered in your spare time. Where this car really shines is not on the motorway – where it’s just too noisy to be a comfortable companion – but on the B roads, where it’s clear that all the crash dieting and the company’s Cup chassis really come good as you dart from corner to corner. It is a fanatically fit streetfighter of a car, and always feels far more frantic than its 133bhp 1.6 litre engine initially suggests. While it’s a bit too raucous for my tastes – for my money I’d still go for the slightly more polished Suzuki Swift Sport tested earlier this year in The Champion – it is undoubtedly a true hot hatch in the old school sense, and more than capable of giving weightier rivals a run for their money. Just don’t load it up with too much luggage, otherwise you’ll undo all of Renault’s hard work!

SOUTHPORT came from behind to defeat Bath with two late goals at Haig Avenue on Saturday. The victory made it nine consecutive unbeaten games for The Sandgrounders with just one defeat in the last 15. Liam Watson was forced to field a depleted team, deprived of key players by injury and suspension.

Whilst The Romans were a much improved side from their early season line–ups, they bore little resemblance to the side that came back from 2–0 to win last season’s match with three second half goals. Godfrey Poku was the architect of his side’s best moves but, although numerous chances were created, nobody finished them off. A goalless draw looked likely until, in the 76th minute, a rare attack by Bath ended when their star player, Sean

Formby pay the price for missed chances

FORMBY’S losing streak continued with Saturday’s home defeat at the hands of Leek CS Old Boys. The Old Boys opened the scoring only seven minutes in but Formby new man Squirrel Andrew Ford instantly equalised. The Squirrels took control of the game, playing their swift controlling style with a superb attacking edge that saw innumberable shots on target including a first half goal for skipper Paul Speed. Leek, conversely, relied on barging and bluster, committing many fouls and playing some of the most cynical football ever seen on that pitch. This wore Formby down and, despite earning a penalty, Formby lost 4–3. Tuesday evening sees the glint of silverware on the horizon as Formby travel to local rivals Bootle for the quarter final of the Liverpool Senior Cup. Saturday brings a home league game when Northwich Villa come to Formby. Villa are lying low in the table, with the division’s worst goal difference, so on paper this is a likely chance for the Squirrels to return to the winning ways they enjoyed in the earlier part of the season.

Canham, headed in Lewis Hoag’s centre and home fans feared the ‘Spectre of Bath City’ had struck again. But they reckoned without Tony Grey who surged into the area to slam in Shaun Whalley’s corner with a minute of normal time left. Then in stoppage time, Andy Owen’s long throw caused chaos in the Bath defence and up popped Gray to hook the ball into the net for the winner.
