Success at the double for Lisa Cold weather deaths total exposed for Sefton area Report by Henry James A TOTAL of 200 people died last year in Sefton because of the cold weather. The Government has for the first time published the number of deaths in each local authority because of the severe weather. They are termed ‘excess deaths’ and are worked out by comparing the amount of deaths in the winter with the average at other parts of the year. The figures show there were 200 deaths in Sefton, which includes Southport, because of the cold weather in 2010/11, and 200 in 2009/10. According to the Office of National Statistics, the number of excess deaths in England during 2010/11 were 24,120. The majority of these deaths are recorded among people aged over 75. In Liverpool, the number of excess deaths in 2010/11 were 220, compared with 300 in 2009/10, while in West Lancashire there were 60 excess deaths in 2010/11 and 80 in 2009/10. During the very cold weather, the number of strokes and heart attacks increase and falls on icy surfaces can result in broken legs and hips, which could be fatal. Those suffering from serious lung conditions are also affected. A Department of Health spokesman has said: “We have allocated £20m to local authorities to help vulnerable people stay well during cold weather and get the help they need within their communities.” Continued inside

Sefton ranked in top five in country for primary schools

Leveson report praises local newspapers as ‘good for communities and democracy’ LORD Leveson’s report into the ethics of the British media has praised local newspapers like The Champion, saying they “are good for our democracy and play an important social role.” The report, prompted by the News of the World phone hacking scandal, has called for a tougher system of self–regulation, backed up by law, to be introduced, stating that some national titles, had “wreaked havoc” with unethical practices, particularly illegal phone hacking. It stressed, however, that it was keen for any new system of media regulation not to stifle regional newspapers. Lord Justice Leveson’s report stated: “It is clear to me that local, high–quality and trusted newspapers are good for our communities, our

identity and our democracy and play an important social role.” Only last month The Champion was judged as the region’s best free newspaper at the 02 Media awards and was praised by judges for “its bright and breezy approach and commitment to community life.” The judges, from broadcast and print media organisations across the country, said: “This was a paper that believed in its staff and as a result they were achieving remarkable results. A clear example of what can be done with commitment and a willingness to deliver.” Cross–party talks have now started on Lord Leveson’s findings, with any new media regulation expected to be brought in by 2015 at the latest.

Report by

NINETY per cent of Sefton primary school pupils attend a school with ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ Ofsted ratings, according to the watchdog’s annual report. The new figure, released last week, put the borough in joint third place on a new league table ranking local authorities according to inspectors’ ratings of schools. Only the London boroughs of Camden (92%) and Barnet (91%) perform higher than Sefton, which is listed alongside Richmond Upon Thames and Trafford in the ratings. Ofsted’s annual report presents evidence from inspection and regulatory visits undertaken between September 2011 and August 2012. It is the first time the report has included a national list of ranking councils in terms of the inspection judgements made about primary schools in their areas. Councillor Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s cabinet member for schools said: “This is obviously great news and testament to the hard work and quality of our schools and the high standard of teaching throughout the borough. “Based on current ratings, we would have expected to be in the top quarter nationally, but it has come as quite a surprise to see the borough ranked in the top five. “Figures such as these tend to fluctuate from year to year, but we will continue to work in

Sefton businesses shine at BNI awards SEFTON members of BNI (Business Network International) enjoyed a successful trip to the organisation’s glittering Merseyside awards ceremony. The network, which is based on ‘word of mouth’ marketing, provides a structured and supportive group in which members can make business referrals based on personal knowledge and trust. During the awards event at Liverpool city centre’s Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Merseyside region was recognised as the most successful in UK and Ireland. Local BNI groups, known as ‘chapters’, and businesses from the area were also presented with accolades. The Links Chapter, based in Formby, and the Mariners Chapter in Southport were crowned the joint overall winners at the ceremony, and the newly formed Horizon group, which is also in Southport, was named ‘Best New Chapter’. Meanwhile, Antony Howe from the Southport–based business Cleantouch was awarded the ‘Member of the Year’ prize for the Links Chapter, while John Porter of Crosby Associates won Merseyside’s ‘Area Director of the Year’ award, and Steve Hanlon from Southport Carpets walked away with the ‘Givers Gain Award’ for referring almost £150,000 of business to chapter members.

Actor is charged with sex offences ACTOR Andrew Lancel’s star role in the Liverpool pantomime ‘Sleeping Beauty’ remains uncertain this week, after he was charged with ‘historic’ sex offences. The former Tarleton High School pupil, best known for playing characters in Coronation Street and The Bill, was charged last Friday with five offences of indecent assault on a child under 16 under the Sexual Offences Act 2003. Lancel, 42, who now lives in Liverpool but spent several years in Southport when he was younger, was charged under his real name Andrew Watkinson. A Merseyside Police spokesperson confirmed: “The offences are historic.” The actor has been bailed to appear at South Sefton Magistrates’ Court on December 19.

Andrew Lancel He was charged just as he was coming to the end of a two and a half week run of playing Brian Epstein in ‘Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles’, at Liverpool’s Epstien Theatre. The play finished last Saturday. This week the actor was due to begin rehearsals for his role as the villain Carbose the Wicked Wizard and Master of the Underworld in the Sleeping Beauty production at The Waterfront Big Top, at the Echo Arena Liverpool, which starts on December 14. Talks were underway on Monday to discuss Lancel’s future in the show.

Body found in Southport is believed to be missing Lewis been established and a police spokesperson confirmed to the Champion that the death is still being treated as unexplained, although detectives do not think it’s suspicious at this stage. Lewis James, who lived on Forest Road, went missing last month, and had last been seen by his family at home on November 8. According to police he had not gone missing before. Friends and family had organised their own search for him on Saturday (December 1), which was observed by police.

by Natasha Young A BODY discovered in Southport on Monday is believed to be missing 23–year–old, Lewis James. As this week’s Champion went to press, Merseyside Police could not confirm the identity of the body, which was found at a property on Forest Road in Blowick just before 11.30am. However friends have since paid tribute to Lewis on the social networking website Facebook. On Monday,

Happy Smile raffle From Page 1 Rod Bailey, the founder of the charity, and Mike Gibbons, one of the trustees, are hoping the raffle’s spectacular jackpot will help draw in thousands of pounds of donations, and they are already amazed by the generous support from businesses and members of the public so far. Rod said: “We have really touched the hearts of people in Southport with the work we are doing and would like to thank them for their help and generosity so far. We are well on our way to our target and will be able to do everything we have set out to do and hopefully a lot lot more.” Families of sick and terminally ill children who are receiving support from THSCC are each sponsored £50 per month for as long as they are visiting hospital, and each family’s circumstances will be reviewed every 12 months. According to THSCC, Alder Hey Chirldren’s Hospital sees around 270,000 patients every year, with some being day cases and others having to stay in hospital for treatment, surgery and recovery. The Government is only able to support families on benefits with their cost of travelling to and from the hospital, while “everyone else has to fend for themselves,” and hospital staff are said to be being “approached daily by desperate parents struggling to afford this extra financial burden.” THSCC also raises money through monthly £1 prize draws to buy £600 parent beds so that parents can stay with their children in hospital, as well as buying teddy bears for young patients. Southport shoppers will have until December 18 to pick up free tickets for the Christmas raffle. The raffle tickets are available in Reputations Menswear and Man to Man on Lord Street, VIP Hair Salon on Cemetery Road, Reuters Bar on Hoghton Street, Buskers Cafe on Coronation Walk, Southport Motorcycles in Eastbank Street and both Spencer Hair Company shops. For more information about the charity, log onto the website at www.thscc.org.

Cold weather deaths exposed From page 1 Dr Janet Atherton, director of Public Health for NHS Sefton and Sefton Council, explained: “There is lots of support available to help older people through the winter months but not everyone is aware of it and others simply don’t use it. “It would be a terrible shame if anybody died this winter because of the problems brought on by the cold but, sadly, statistics suggest it will happen. “It is important that everyone does what they can to check the older and vulnerable people they know – family, friends or neighbours – are okay, and if not help them to get the help that could save their lives.”

Your NHS explained FROM next April, two new organisations – South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (SSCCG) and Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (SFCCG) – will be taking over from NHS Sefton, the primary care trust which currently plans and oversees a wide range of health services including those provided in hospital, clinics and health centres. It is all part of the government’s reform of the NHS, which became law earlier this year through the Health and Social Care Act. Right across the country clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), made up of GPs, hospital doctors, nurses and lay people, are getting ready to become the lead organisation for the majority of local health services. So, what difference will this make? Health professionals are in the best position to know the health needs of their patients and what will work and what won’t. These are the people who care for and treat Sefton residents, and for the first time, they will be in charge of deciding what healthcare is needed in the borough. They will also be responsible for how Sefton’s share of government money will be spent to make sure health services are right for their patients and are of the best possible quality. Dr Niall Leonard, Chair of SFCCG, said: “We have a unique opportunity to make a difference to our local NHS. We see and care for Sefton residents every day, so we know what the main health priorities of our patients are. Because we too live and work in Sefton, we also have a good understanding of what else in the borough contributes to people’s health locally.” CCGs won’t be able to do this on their own. They will need to work closely with a range of organisations who either provide services on their behalf, such as hospitals and community organisations, or whose work influences health in Sefton, like the Council. At the heart of all this work is patients and Sefton residents and their views will influence the local NHS more than ever before. Dr Clive Shaw, Chair of SSCCG, explains: “One of the ways we can make sure the services we provide in the future are the right ones, is speaking to the people who use them. Their experience of their local NHS – where it works well and where it needs to improve – is essential. There will be a number of different

Stephen’s blind drive challenge

Report by

Natasha Young

Blaze at sheltered accommodation A SOUTHPORT blaze was one of three fires to break out at sheltered accommodation in Merseyside on Sunday (December 2). Firefighters were called out to the Cambridge Road property in the town at 10.33am, where a pan of food caught fire in the kitchen of a first floor flat. The fire was out when the two Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service appliances arrived from Southport Community Fire Station. The firefighters then ventilated the flat, which was partly affected by mild smoke damage, and carried out a Home Fire Safety Check. Smoke alarms were present and activated when the incident took place. Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service was also called out to kitchen fires at sheltered accommodation in Wallasey and Toxteth in Liverpool.

Best of Hesketh Bank HESKETH Bank residents are being invited to get 2013 off to a great start by jotting down all the important dates in a calendar celebrating the best of the village. The calendar, which features images from around Hesketh Bank, is being sold at shops in the village to raise funds for North West Air Ambulance.

Stephen Ball takes the 4x4 for a spin A VISUALLY impaired Southport man got behind the wheel for a ‘blind drive’ last week, as part of a three–night adventure break. Stephen Ball, 24, enjoyed a taste of ‘Xtreme’ off–road driving during the launch of Action for Blind People’s series of Life Skills Boot Camps, which are being funded by a £165,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund (BLF). He joined 11 other 18–25 year olds with sight loss at the charity’s specialist hotel in Weston super Mare, and at nearby Shepton Mallet, for the inaugural development and adventure trip. Getting behind the wheel of a 4x4 for the off–road blind drive, which was organised as a one–off treat to celebrate the launch of the camps, was among the

challenges Stephen took part in. Other activities included a technology workshop to learn how gadgets can help people with sight loss live independently, as well as education and employment workshops such as mock job interviews and fitness training. Driving was a highlight for Stephen, as he took directions from a sighted instructor while manoeuvring through an obstacle course, before switching places to be raced around a high speed track. Following the Life Skills Boot Camp, Stephen said: “I found the off–road driving more thrilling than I could possibly imagine, The challenge has had a positive effect on my self confidence.”

THE owner of a Southport beauty salon says her business has been given a “huge boost” after scooping two top awards. Lisa Carlin picked up the ‘Best New Produce/Service/Company’ and ‘Top Networker’ accolades at the recent Prestige Ball and Sefton Business Awards for her Lord Street based Flutterby Salon, which opened up a year ago. She was among a host of local traders to succeed at the Sefton Chamber of Commerce and Industry event, which recognised the work and dedication of businesses across the borough. Following Lisa’s double victory, she told the Champion:

“Winning the awards has given my business a huge boost in a time where it is difficult not only being on the high street but as a

retailer and a service provider. It goes to prove with hard work and determination you can achieve your aspirations.”

Crackdown on drink and drug drivers Natasha Young

SEFTON motorists could start the new year in prison or a mortuary if they risk driving under the influence of drink or drugs this Christmas. That was the message from Merseyside Police on Friday (November 30), as it launched its drink and drug drive campaign for the festive season. With an increased number of parties and celebrations in bars, clubs, restaurants and friends’ houses during the festive period there is traditionally a spike in the number of people prepared to drive after drinking alcohol or taking drugs. During December the force will be cracking down on bad driving, particularly those who risk the lives of others by drink or drug driving, with an increased number of officers on the roads targeting those suspected of breaking the law. Chief Inspector John Hogan, head of roads policing in Merseyside, said: “Despite the obvious dangers of combining driving with alcohol or drugs, every year there are a number of people who are prepared to flout the law and continue to drive. “It only takes one of these people to lose control of their vehicle and kill or seriously injure another person – whether that be

Chief Inspector John Hogan with a crashed car Code NA a stranger, friend or loved one. “My officers will be out in force this festive period targeting these reckless individuals who will feel the full force of the law if we stop them and they are found to be over the legal limit.” Merseyside Police will be naming and shaming on its website those arrested and subsequently charged with drink or drug driving offences this Christmas and New Year period. Chief Insp Hogan added: “While they represent a small minority of drivers, I cannot stress enough the danger that these people present to themselves and other road users. “We are dedicated to reducing the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads.”

follow my tips and advice, you will be the envy of all of your guests this Christmas.” This week Mini has decided to focus on roast potatoes and the steps you need to take to ensure you achieve amazing roast potatoes every time Always use medium or large sized potatoes, peel and place in a pan, cover with water and add a little salt. Cook the potatoes until they are slightly tender but not falling apart as you would for mash (the water should be just simmering). Once they are cooked, drain. Cut the potatoes in half, lengthways. Put some oil/fat in the bottom of your roasting tray and add the warm potatoes. Move them around so they are coated in the fat. Make sure the biggest, flat side of the potato is face down in the tray. Season with salt and pepper and place in a hot oven for around 30–40 minutes. Cook until nice and crispy – they will be light and fluffy inside.

A GROUP of kindhearted fundraisers who walked right across West Lancashire in baby suits have helped to generated more than £1,000 for cancer treatment at Southport Hospital. The team, from Up Holland, walked from the hospital to the Stanley Pub in the village last Saturday to raise money for chemotherapy treatment, and said that while they have already raised more than £1,000 they are still collecting more. 1095793

“All the money raised during the year helps many of the smaller charitable and voluntary groups that do not have a national profile and sometimes find fundraising rather difficult. “The money donated through the metal recycling scheme will go a long way to help local charities right on our doorstep.” Councillor Ian Moncur, cabinet member children, schools, families and leisure, added: “The alloys used in these implants are very valuable and I am very pleased families give their consent to allow us to help the environment and give something back to local community.” natasha.young@champnews.com

A Holland–based company collects the metal, sorts it out and then melts it, and it is often used to manufacture new implants. Any profits from the scheme are distributed to local charities and this year 51 schemes will each receive £4,000. In Sefton there is a specific consent form dealing with the disposal of metal body implants which forms part of the paperwork that families sign when requesting a cremation. Mayor of Sefton, Councillor Kevin Cluskey, said: “Any contribution to the Mayor of Sefton’s Charity Fund is most welcome, especially a substantial donation like this.

Bu rsc ou gh

THE Mayor of Sefton’s Charity Fund is to receive a £4,000 boost, after Sefton Council joined a specialist national recycling scheme. The local authority is one of many across the country to take part in the scheme, which recycles the metal in orthopaedic implants such as replacement hip and knee joints. Unlike gold or silver, the alloys used in orthopaedic implants survive the cremation process. Sefton agreed in 2006 to adopt the initiative, which is administered nationally by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, for cremations at Southport Crematorium and Thornton Garden of Rest.

New police chief makes pledge to cut costs

‘We’re Lancashire... and proud!’ RESIDENTS across Sefton and West Lancashire celebrated their Lancastrian identity on Tuesday (November 27) during a day dedicated to the Red Rose county. A series of events took place to mark Lancashire Day, an annual commemoration of the customs and traditions of the county, including a reading of the Lancashire Day proclamation on Lord Street in Southport. Chris Dawson, chairman of the Friends of Real Lancashire, said: “On this day in 1295 the first elected representatives from Lancashire were called to Westminster by King Edward I to attend what later became known as ”The Model Parliament“. “The Lancashire Day proclamation is read out by town criers throughout the county on November 27.”

Jane Kennedy “Co–locating with the police could be an ideal outcome as the additional cost of housing my office would be nil.” The PCC, who covers Sefton within her role, also explained that she has opened up discussions with the former police authority staff to offer them three options, including voluntary severance, a position within the commissioner’s office where possible, or redeployment into the ranks of support staff of the police.

Inspired to Achieve St. Mary’s College is a thriving community which places a high value on outstanding academic achievement and all-round personal development. Our school is built on strong values which emphasise the importance of caring for others and striving for excellence in all we do. We celebrated another fantastic set of exam results in 2012, with 100% of our pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs at A*– C grade and a 100% pass rate at A Level. However, success at St. Mary’s is measured by much more than examination results; our rich programme of extra-curricular activities equips our pupils with the skills and values which will guide and support them throughout their lives.

MERSEYSIDE’S new police and crime commissioner (PCC) has pledged to cut the cost of the body that oversees the work of Merseyside Police, as she settles into her new role. Jane Kennedy solely replaced the 17–strong Merseyside Police Authority team when she was officially sworn in as the new commissioner last month, and says the move has brought an opportunity to reduce the cost of the office. Like the police authority, the PCC’s office is from the budget for Merseyside Police, which is currently “under serious pressure as front line services used to protect our communities face cuts.” Commissioner Kennedy, who successfully represented the Labour Party in the country’s first PCC election, said: “I am taking this opportunity to reduce the costs of the oversight role and thereby release funds directly into the police service. I don’t need an expensive city centre office and I have asked staff to conduct a search of available property including within police stations.

A NEW law to regulate major supermarkets will give Southport’s small businesses a “sporting chance” at trading successfully, according to the MP. John Pugh, who has previously campaigned to stop giants such as Tesco expanding to the detriment of other shops in the town centre, supported the Groceries Adjudicator bill in Parliament last week. The bill, which has passed through the first stage of its route through both Houses of Parliament, is expected to be up and running by the middle of next year and will aim to protect small businesses and food producers from unfair practice by supermarkets. The Liberal Democrat said supermarkets had “certainly been the bullies of the retail sector” and told the Champion: “I think supermarkets in the past have really taken advantage of their position and have been able to force the price

WAREHOUSE

of goods they buy in an unfair way.” He described the progression of the bill as “an important step forward” and explained: “One result of the unfair grocery market in the UK has been that 50% of dairy farmers have gone out of business in the last 15 years due to irregular or unreliable orders from big retailers. Smaller food retailers are being squeezed out all over the country, and there are now less than 1000 specialised fishmongers left in the UK, but the total number of hyper or supermarkets with fish counters is nearly 10,000, and growing. “The new ‘adjudicator’ will provide all producers, customers and competitors with the opportunity to raise concerns to an independent body. This body will have the job of holding big supermarkets to account. The adjudicator will ensure good competition and fair buying practices by all retailers, with the full support of the Government.” Mr Pugh added: “Hopefully it will give the smaller traders a sporting chance, although they will still have to compete.”

Record– breakers! Mass arrival of Whooper swans at Martin Mere Centre manager, Andy Wooldridge, said: “We usually get peak numbers of Whooper swans in mid to late December so I still think numbers will continue to rise. “The highest previous count was 2100 in 2010 which also coincided with a

cold snap. The recent cold weather has certainly encouraged birds which roost elsewhere to visit Martin Mere allowing us to offer a fantastic spectacle during the swan feeds.” The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, which runs the site, added that Whooper swans spend the summer in Iceland and winter in the UK, with approximately 7% of the population of Whooper swans visiting Martin Mere over the winter.

LETTERS to the Editor National campaign is needed to save libraries from closure

Overcrowded trains and stations without shelters are a disgrace

Re: Threatened public library closures I attended a packed public meeting about the threat to Birkdale Library on November 17, which most people must have left feeling they had wasted the afternoon. I have now written to both John Pugh MP and deputy prime minister Nick Clegg seeking a five–year national moratorium on the destruction of library facilities. The one significant fact which emerged from the meeting is that nobody knows what Parliament meant when it required local authorities to provide ‘comprehensive and efficient’ library services in 1964 and so the ‘playing field’ on which residents are campaigning is not only steeply sloping to their disadvantage but has elastic goalposts. This situation makes the matter a national

Re: Article about overcrowding on Merseyrail train. Merseyrail trains are a disgrace. I go to Goodison Park for every Everton home match and find the journey home an absolute nightmare. You won’t find a train more overcrowded than after a Merseyside home match. It is an absolute disgrace. Merseyrail have also spent a fortune on Formby and Freshfield stations. I travel on a train every Monday night from Southport to Formby and the wait for the train home at about 11.30pm is horrible. It is very annoying to see heated waiting rooms closed, especially when it is raining. Before they spent a fortune on the platforms at least you could shelter from the rain in an

issue to be resolved by Parliament, not one over which despairing local residents should have to do battle with their local councils with weapons which make the Biblical David v Goliath contest seem like an even match. I do not have the resources to make my ideas ‘go viral’, so I urge everyone who is concerned about the likely loss of their local library to spread the demand for the moratorium I have proposed by whatever means are open to them. United nationally we may be able to conceive a sustainable public library system for the 21st century; divided into ultra–local campaigns to save each individual library I can only see cultural vandalism on an unprecedented scale over the next few years.

good clothes at an affordable price. If you sell your clothing it wil no longer be available to local people. I want to give to my local charity rather than sell it for a few pence for a large amount of clothing that will be sold for a profit abroad.

Very many thanks to the kind person who found my lost diary and went to the trouble of returning it to my home. Have a happy Christmas. Peter T Gibb, Southport

You can help make a better life for pets PDSA’s new Animal Wellbeing (PAW) report revealed that millions of pets’ needs are being neglected. This isn’t due to deliberate mistreatment – simply that many owners don’t fully understand what their pets need to be healthy and happy. There are a number of worrying findings in the PAW report, one of which is that nearly a third of dog owners have been bitten or attacked by a dog. Aggression is most often caused by a lack of appropriate training and socialisation when dogs are young, which can lead to fears and aggression in later life. But the report showed that many owners still don’t take puppies to training classes, or understand how to socialise them properly. Pet obesity and a lack of preventive care are also issues addressed in the PAW report. Another stark finding is that many owners aren’t aware of the five simple things pet owners need to provide by law to ensure their pets’ long–term wellbeing. All of the animal welfare issues the report assesses are preventable. As the UK’s leading veterinary charity, we can’t ignore this and want to do all we can to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of pets. To help support owners we have launched our Better Life for Pets campaign and are urging all local pet owners, whether you have a dog, cat, rabbit or other small pet, to visit www.pdsa.org.uk/pawreport to read the PAW report and watch our unique pet welfare animation. It may just take one or two small changes, but with your help we can make a better life for all pets a reality. Nicola Martin, PDSA

unheated shelter. I have complained to Merseyrail many times but just get the reply ‘it’s for the safety of staff’ so they don’t have to shut the rooms on their own, even though in this day and age you could probably be able to just flick a switch. Every week I travel on the last train home from Formby and have never been asked to show my ticket which is annoying as I often think ‘why buy a ticket?’ It really annoyed me when I read the reply from Merseyrail to your article. They know the trains are overcrowded and choose to do nothing about it. Hopefully you will get something done about it.

And they recommend residents top up their loft insulation. Heat rises, and in an uninsulated home a quarter of the heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft is a simple and effective way to reduce that waste and lower your heating bills. Many homes already have some loft insulation, but the amount of heat lost and the energy savings gained will directly relate to the current thickness and condition of the insulation. The latest government guidelines recommend 270mm (11“) which means if you live in a property that’s older than 10 years of age, it’s probably ready for a top up. As spokesperson for the NHBC said: ”Of course, a highly energy efficient heating system complete with A–rated boiler, and insulation levels that meet current regulations, are things that come as standard with a newly–built home. “In addition, recent research from the NHBC Foundation and Zero Carbon Hub has shown that living in today’s new homes could result in savings of around 55% on gas and electricity spending. “But whether your home is new or old, these simple measures should have a beneficial impact on your bills – and your bank balance.”

SEFTON residents are being given advice on how to protect their homes... and their wallets, from the effects of falling temperatures this winter. For many homeowners in the borough, one of the biggest burdens on their finances across the winter months is the cost of keeping their home warm. The National House and Building Council (NHBC), has issued tips to keep homes cosy and draught free for the winter. Firstly they recommend people service their heating systems. Central heating boilers should be checked and serviced at least once a year by a Gas Safe Registered engineer to ensure they remain safe and efficient. They also suggest considering flushing the system to ensure water flow through radiators is unobstructed. Reducing draughts is also crucial and spending a little time walking around checking for potential cold spots, and taking the necessary cheap and simple measures to eliminate them, it should be possible to keep cold air out and the home comfortably warm. The NHBC say if you notice that a radiator is warm at the bottom but cool at the top, this could mean that there is air in the system, which prevents the warm circulating water from reaching the top of the radiator. If you suspect air in the system then the radiator may require bleeding to ensure maximum efficiency of the heating system.

Protect your homes... and your wallets this winter

Sad plight of abandoned rabbits

Fernando is just one of the rabbits waiting to be rehomed

AN animal rescue based in Sefton has backed a new campaign to reduce to number of abandoned rabbits. New figures from the Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund (RWAF), show that the number of unwanted rabbits has nearly doubled in recent years. A survey conducted by the charity estimated the number of rabbits given up to rescue shelters was well over 67,000 Helen Stanbury, manager of Freshfields Animal Rescue in Formby said the latest figures have come as no surprise. She said: “I personally think it’s always been this bad and that these days rescue centres are

just better at keeping figures and sharing them although it is worth stating that more people today are aware of rescue centres existing, previously they would just have dumped them and we would never have known. “During the first half of the year, Freshfields admitted 62 rabbits and rehomed 53. We always prioritise strays and those obviously abandoned. “One such incident was four rabbits dumped all together in a box. Out of the four, one had nails close to two inches in length, another had

a large untreated abscess hanging under it’s chin and a third had a dislocated leg which had obviously been that way for some time and was eventually amputated. “We always have in the region of 100 rabbits and other small animals waiting to be admitted and of course have to deal with the abandoned ones as and when they occur.” “People think that rabbits are cheap and easy pets to look after but they aren’t, couple that with pet shops making mistakes when sexing rabbits and the inevitable litters that follow that in turn are often sexed wrongly or given away without thought and it’s easy to see how it all spirals out of control. “Highlighting the welfare needs of these animals and at the same time promoting responsible ownership and neutering is the only sensible way forward and it’s going to be a very long, very hard slog. Maybe it’s time such things were included on the schools curriculum, switch it around and the young children can go home and educate the parents. “What is really worrying,” said Richard Saunders, RWAF veterinary expert advisor, “is that this number only reflects the cases where the rabbits have made it into rescue. “We can’t possibly quantify how many more are dumped in the wild and left to fend for themselves, which leads to almost certain death, by the way. “Then there are those who, when the novelty has worn off, are simply neglected and left often in a hutch with no access to exercise space and almost no attention except for a handful of food now and again.” The RWAF are now calling on adults to think long and hard, and do their research before buying rabbits. And even longer and harder before they decide to breed ‘just one litter’ from their pets, all of which will then need to find homes. Mr Saunders added: “If you can’t commit to caring for rabbits, then rabbits are not for you.”

The Slimming World eating plan is so flexible and family friendly not having to make separate meals really is the key” Sarah has inspired so many members she was voted Miss Slinky in the 5.30 session! “it’s not a little black dress I want to get into but a white one!” laughs Sarah.

After the birth of her third child Sarah decided she wanted to shift the baby weight and, as she had previously been a member, Sarah decided that her local Slimming World group was the place to go. Sarah says “as a busy mum of three boys I don’t have a lot of time for myself so I knew Slimming World’s Extra Easy eating plan would fit in perfectly. Because lots of foods can be eaten freely we can still enjoy our favourite meals like spaghetti bolognese and cottage pie and all sit down together to the same meal” “it’s great knowing everyone is eating healthily and the boys even enjoy helping out with the preparation too! And at the end of a busy day I know I can still enjoy a treat in the evenings” says Sarah. Sarah also has an added incentive to lose weight as she is getting married on New Years eve! “I have my target weight in sight now and it is my goal to be there for my wedding day” Sarah attends the Victoria Methodist Church group on Sussex Road on a Wednesday evening at

warning to web shoppers Beware fake goods Report by

Natasha Young

CHRISTMAS shoppers in Sefton are being warned not to be an Ugg mug during the festive season. Trading Standards officers in the borough have recently been contacted by a number of consumers who have bought UGG branded boots on the internet, only to find out they are fakes. The officers are urging residents not to be fooled by cheap prices on the internet when buying the boots, particularly in the run up to Christmas, and the same goes for GHD hair straighteners and other popular electrical items sold as gifts. Sefton Council Trading Standards manager, Andrew Naisbitt, said: “Sadly counterfeit UGG boots are being offered for sale via the Internet and consumers in the borough are buying them. “Every Christmas this seems to occur as rogue traders seem to spring up and try to take advantage of consumers looking for a seasonal bargain. “The best action consumers can take is to visit the UGG website and contact them directly and use their site to identify whether or not the trader is a genuine distributor. “Genuine UGG boots retail from more than £100 and those that seem like a bargain, more often than not, will only be fakes. “Authenticity cards, packaging, care booklets and dust bags are all copied by the counterfeiters so please don’t presume that just because the boots come with all the UGG extras they are authentic. “Please don’t get stung by a scam like this in the run up to Christmas as it often means money down the drain.” For help and advice on all consumer issues call the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 08454 04 05 06.

Motorist was unfit to drive, court told A Southport man has been disqualified from driving for 18 months after being convicted of driving while unfit through drugs, namely cannabis. Connor Wood, 18, appeared at Sefton Magistrates on November 28, and was fined £135, ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge, and pay £85 costs.

rivers section, someone had suddenly decided that a disused railway bridge over the River Bure at Great Yarmouth needed urgent repair. The upshot being that the navigation was closed – for the next three days at least. Now this didn’t this time mean an extension to the holiday – but it did foil our plans for the remainder of the week. So it was with dismal feelings that we retraced our course up the river. This being Wednesday we decided to make another assault on Yarmouth on Saturday morning and so it was that late on Friday afternoon we tied up in the charming riverside village of Reedham. Now Reedham possesses a tiny ‘old fashioned’ fish and chip shop which has always fascinated me but has never been open when I have had any possible need of its services. Not so this time.

Fish and chips are guaranteed to lift the spirits so I climbed up a very steep and narrow road – and was rewarded not only by the best cod and chips I’ve had in living memory, but by the father and son combination who run this emporium. They were welcoming and friendly, and when you add in too the equally affable locals who were wisely patronising this lovely establishment you can see that spirits would wonderfully be lifted. And in the morning we successfully navigated the newly repaired Yarmouth bridge. Incidentally the only reason it hadn’t been demolished instead of being left to fall down was that it is ‘Listed’ as being one of only two of its type in the country. So now it is being patched up and painted. Looks like a pretty ordinary steel bridge to me, but still. This hold up meant that we had but one day left before we had to go home and we needed to ‘winterise’ the boat. So full marks too to the chap who runs the Sutton Staithe boatyard and did the job for us at minimal charge. Happy and prosperous Christmas to you sir, and to the proprietors of the Reedham chippy – and all its customers!

Bridge hold–up led me to the best fish and chips ever GOD, it is said, moves in mysterious ways his miracles to perform. Certainly in the case of my recent holidays on my Norfolk Broads–based cruiser ‘Manxman’ this seems to be the case. You’ll remember when my summer holiday was unexpectedly extended by a day when the police closed the river while they searched for two bodies in what turned out to be a murder inquiry. Well it’s happened again! No, not a murder, but a river closure which disrupted our annual winter cruise which coincides with my birthday (see the ‘Dog’ column last week). As an aside, I do this to avoid the embarrassment of remaining at home and having receiving the dozens of cards, good wishes and of course, gifts that would otherwise flood in. Anyway, back to the river. This time we were on the ‘wrong’ side of Great Yarmouth and on our way back when we were stopped by a River Inspector – or Ranger as they are now known. Mr Ranger Sir politely wished us a good morning, enquired where about we were heading – and told us we couldn’t. In the three days we had been cruising the Southern

Marty’s party rocked theatre Marty Wilde’s Rock ’n’ Roll Party Southport Theatre Review by Ron Ellis THE title says it all. A party celebrating 50 years in the business by three hitmakers from the Fifties and early Sixties. I confess I have never bought a Marty Wilde record. Until ‘Bad Boy’, he was always given cover versions of American hits and I preferred the originals. ‘Sea of Love’ was so much better by Phil Phillips and The Twilights. But, on the night, Marty was superb, sounding like he was 19 again as he went through his back catalogue of familiar songs. He paid tribute to John Leyton, recovering from a major operation, and to the late Jet Harris,

with the long–serving Wildcats doing a rocking Shadows spot. Eden Kane sang his hits, ‘Well I Ask You’, ‘Forget me Not’, etc yet, listening to his excellent rendition of ‘I Don’t Know Why’, I wondered why he hadn’t taken the Englebert matinee idol route. He certainly looked the part with his fine head of silver hair and matching suit. Mike Berry confessed that if he was starting out today he would have been a Buddy Holly tribute act. His career started when producer, Joe Meek, set him up as the Holly sound–alike in his stable of wannabe pop stars and, of course, his first hit was ‘Tribute to Buddy Holly’. But when he sang ‘Sunshine of your Smile’, his only gold record, the maturity of his voice showed he is

much more than a Holly copyist. A surprise addition to the bill was Marty Wilde’s younger daughter, Roxanne, who looked worryingly thin enough to be a model, but showed she is just as talented as her sister, Kim, particularly in her rendition of ‘Who’s Sorry Now’. I hope we’ll be back in two years,’ said Marty at the end, ‘but I’m 73 and time isn’t on our side’. Don’t kid yourself, Marty. Al Martino was 82 when he played Southport Theatre and Jerry Lee Lewis played Beale Street in Memphis this year on his 76th birthday, having recently married for the seventh time. We shall expect you back. Star rating: 9/10. The evening had a wonderful feel–good party atmosphere.

Lyric Singers’ festive show in aid of hospice THE Southport Lyric Singers will present a Christmas concert in aid of Queenscourt Hospice on December 14.

The event at All Saints Church Hall, Southport will start at 7.30pm, featuring audience carols, solos and

IN the unlikely event I get asked to design a luxury car, the Citroen DS5 is probably not too far off what I’d come up with. Surely what you want in a plushly trimmed motor is plenty of space, some clever gadgets, a comfy ride, and an interior which, while clearly cosseting, shows where a bit of thought’s gone into it? Unfortunately, sales of luxury cars suggest you want sportiness and a blue–chip image instead. The best selling luxury car for this sort of outlay is BMW’s 3–Series. So what do you get if you’re a middle management type and you plump for Paris over Munich, or Ingolstadt or Stuttgart for that matter? Well, you get the world’s first diesel–hybrid system, and a clever one it is too; while a turbodiesel, in the case of the range–topper I tested one with 2.0 litres and 163bhp at its disposal, struts its stuff at the front end, an electric motor offers a helping hand by sending some eco–friendly oomph to the back wheels. Not only does it offer you the benefits of four wheel drive at this time of year, but it keeps things eco–friendly and, as far as the taxman’s concerned, cheap to run too. Yet what really grabs you with the DS5 is the interior. Fans of the smaller, strikingly good DS3 will find themselves in familiar territory, with the same attention to detail with the materials and use of colour but with the added flair of buttons in the roof, Boeing 747–style. It’s also far roomier than any of its immediate executive car rivals, thanks to Citroen shunning the saloon norm and going for a sleek hatchback instead. Admittedly, it’s not got the same grin factor to its handling as the smaller DS3 but that’s not what this luxury lounger’s about – if you do a lot of motorway work and value comfort over thrills, I’d struggle to find another premium offering that does the job as comfortably. Hand on heart, I couldn’t recommend the range–topping DSport versions – not when it’s straying close to Jag XF territory – but the mid–range DStyle, which Citroen reckon are going to be the biggest sellers, have got a lot going for them.

HERE’S an idea you’ll warm to. Why don’t we fit cars with proper boilers and thermostats? T’was a cold and frosty morning when the thought struck me. Faced with needing to take a car rather than the bus into work, I unlocked the garage and started up a stone cold Mazda MX–5 which immediately fogged up the moment I dared to exhale breath while sat inside. I was one of the lucky ones; elsewhere, the good people of Southport were scraping the ice of their windscreens. Here’s the rub. Almost every car I’ve driven on a cold morning, even shiny brand new ones, still require the efforts of some cheap de–icer before you can set off, and then a good few minutes before the icy chill of winter leaves the interior. Nor can you do the old trick of warming the car up while you sit indoors with a cuppa – not only is it illegal, but you might as well stick a sign on your pride ‘n’ joy with “STEAL ME” writ large all over it. With the exception of a wonderful January weekend in Wales, when I donned gloves and a woolly hat so I could enjoy the crisp mountain air in the MX–5 with the roof down, driving first thing in the morning at this time of year is no fun. Unless of course, you run a recently–made Range Rover. A car which comes with a little gas heater and a time–adjustable thermostat, just like your house does. In the same way I’ve always wondered why houses aren’t fitted with electric windows, it perplexes me why proper thermostats which you can preset to come on when you want – which have been around for ages – don’t come as standard on more cars. If you know you’re going to be setting off at eight every morning, wouldn’t it be great to preset a proper heating system to come on fifteen minutes earlier, so your pride and joy is

SPORT Late goal luck goes with Yellows at last Report by

Ron Ellis

Stockport County 3 Southport 4 IN an exciting rollercoaster of a game at Edgeley Park, Southport continued their good run of results against Stockport County, moving up to 17th place in the table. The Sandgrounders started off in spectacular style and were 2–0 up in the first eight minutes. Shaun Whalley was the architect of the first goal, making a solo run before passing to Chris Almond who made no mistake for his fourth league goal of the season. Two minutes later, Steve Ackrigg headed in Whalley’s corner making it a goal in both games he has played since his return from injury. At this point, County goalkeeper, Lewis King retired with a leg injury and was replaced by Ian Ormson but the young keeper was not able to stop a brilliant 30–yard lob from Andy Owens in the 33rd minute. At this point, Southport took their foot off the pedal and they were quickly made to pay for it. The defence failed to cope with renewed attacks by the home side and Paul Turnbull started the comeback with a header in the 42nd minute and this was swiftly followed by a Danny Hattersley penalty two minutes later after Tony McMillan, who otherwise had a excellent game, needlessly brought the player down. As the second half started, it was the Hatters who had the initiative and, sure enough, the equaliser came from defender Andy Halls in the 58th minute. It seemed inevitable that County

contingent. Braintree Town are the visitors to Haig Avenue on Saturday. The Yellows are now three points out of the relegation zone yet have the same number of points less than the team in eighth position which shows that a good run could propel them up the division to where Liam Watson thinks they deserve to be. The postponed home game against Lincoln City will now take place on Tuesday, January 8. Kick off at 7.45pm.

Police launch festive crackdown Cold weather deaths total exposed for Sefton area Report by Henry James A TOTAL of 200 people died last year in Sefton because of the cold weather. The government has for the first time published the number of deaths in each local authority because of the severe weather. They are termed ‘excess deaths’ and are worked out by comparing the amount of deaths in the winter with the average at other parts of the year. The figures show there were 200 deaths in Sefton, which includes Southport, because of the cold weather in 2010/11, and 200 in 2009/10. According to the Office of National Statistics, the number of excess deaths in England during 2010/11 were 24,120. The majority of these deaths are recorded among people aged over 75. In Liverpool, the number of excess deaths in 2010/11 were 220, compared with 300 in 2009/10, while in West Lancashire there were 60 excess deaths in 2010/11 and 80 in 2009/10. During the very cold weather, the number of strokes and heart attacks increase and falls on icy surfaces can result in broken legs and hips, which could be fatal. Those suffering from serious lung conditions are also affected. A Department of Health spokesman has said: “We have allocated £20m to local authorities to help vulnerable people stay well during cold weather and get the help they need within their communities.” Continued inside

I’LL GIVE MY HAIR TO KIDS WITH CANCER Father who lost baby to brave charity event Report by

Stephanie O’Connor

A SUPERMARKET worker who lost his baby earlier this year aged just five days old will be shaving his head to raise money for the charity that comforted him in his hour of need. Phil Briggs, 38, who works for Tesco in Formby, will have his luscious locks donated to make wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment at the Little Princess Trust. The brave venture will also raise money for Cancer Research UK and for Derian House Children’s Hospice – who helped care for Isaac providing relief for Phil and his wife Victoria. Continued inside.

Cold weather deaths exposed From page 1 Dr Janet Atherton, director of Public Health for NHS Sefton and Sefton Council, explained: “There is lots of support available to help older people through the winter months but not everyone is aware of it and others simply don’t use it. “It would be a terrible shame if anybody died this winter because of the problems brought on by the cold but, sadly, statistics suggest it will happen. “It is important that everyone does what they can to check the older and vulnerable people they know – family, friends or neighbours – are okay, and if not help them to get the help that could save their lives.”

THIS year’s Formby Christmas Lights switch on has been hailed as the best the village has ever seen. Hundreds of families lined the streets of the village to join in the annual countdown which sees Brows Lane and Chapel Lane lit up with twinkling lights. This year’s celebrity guest former Liverpool legend Supersub David Fairclough was given the honour of officially turning the lights on while Mike McCartney, photographer, musician and of course the brother of Paul, compered the evening. The crowds were also entertained by the choir from Our Lady’s Primary School and The Merseycats. Pat Wordley, chair of the Formby Christmas Lights Committee, said: “This year was the best the village has ever seen. There seemed to be more people than ever before which just shows how much the event is growing. “It made a real difference having live music and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and getting involved with everything going on. “On behalf of the Formby Christmas Lights Committee we would like to say thank you to all the local businesses and traders who made a donation to the lights appeal. “And we would like to say a special thank you to Paul Lally, the Christmas decorator. Paul has been fantastic and deserves a special thank you.”

Phil said: “We decided to do a fundraising event in work for Cancer Research UK and a few random things got mentioned and I asked how much people would pay me to shave off my hair and it just snowballed.” After receiving overwhelming support from his colleagues, Phil decided to take the fundraising opportunity to raise money for a charity closer to his heart. He said: “I will also be supporting a personal charity, who helped me earlier this year with the death of my baby boy. “Isaac was born August 13 with his sister Madison but he died on August 18. His problem was that he had hypoplastic left heart syndrome, along with further complications in his heart, meaning the operations available would not have worked. “He only lived for five days and it was the staff at Derian House Children’s Hospice who helped care for Isaac and we are really grateful to them. “My hair, which is half way down my back is also being donated to the Little Princess Trust, who make real–hair wigs for boys and girls across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.” And even though Phil, who is also father to Georgia, 16 and Jacob, aged seven, is feeling slightly anxious about the event, his family are all supporting him. He added: “I don’t think my family particularly want me to shave off my hair, but they are very proud of what I am doing and my wife Victoria and my baby daughter Madison, Isaac’s twin sister, will be there to support me, hopefully with a lot of other people too. “They are collecting at all of the till points in the store already and I really hope as many people will support us as possible.” Phil will be getting his head shaved at Tesco Formby at 1pm on Friday, December 14.

MP calls to cut 3p tax rise...

Church to host Dickensian play ALTHOUGH the usual Dickensian Day may not take place this year, Charles Dickens’ 200th anniversary will still be marked in Formby village. An enthusiastic group of volunteers from the village aged between eight and 80 from Holy Trinity Church are set to take part in a short version of Dickens’ much loved tale A Christmas Carol with a slight twist. A spokesperson for the event said: “Members and friends of Holy Trinity Church will be taking part in a short version of Dickens’ much loved story A Christmas Carol, as an added attraction to the traditional carol service. “The great thing about A Christmas Carol – with Carols is that it is a real community event. No one here is an actor or actress, it is just members of the community who want to do something for everyone else.” “There will be two performances of A Christmas Carol with Carols, at Holy Trinity Church, Rosemary Lane, on Sunday, December 23 at 4–30pm and 6–30pm. “Everyone is welcome and admission free. Donations are invited for charities very suited to the spirit of the play, as Dickens’ wanted his book to make a difference. “Bring your friends and neighbours and start your Christmas off in style.”

Report by

Stephanie O’Connor

MP BILL Esterson has called on the Chancellor, George Osbourne, to cancel the Government’s new year 3p per litre petrol tax rise that he claims will hit Formby residents hard when it comes into force on January 1. Mr Esterson has slammed the government for being ‘out of touch’ with local people and the rising cost of living caused by the government’s failing economic policies. He claims as well as helping people on low and middle incomes, stopping the petrol tax rise would also help businesses and the flat–lining economy. He said: “At a time when the cost of living is rising this out of touch government is giving 8,000 millionaires an average tax cut of over £107,000, it cannot be right to hit middle and low income families and small businesses with another tax rise. The price of petrol is now more than £1.36 a litre, a massive rise of 15p

since they came to power. People in Sefton Central are really feeling the squeeze from the Government’s VAT rise – which has added 3p to the price of a litre of petrol – and deep cuts to things like tax credits. ”So delaying January’s fuel duty rise, at least until April, would provide some much–needed financial relief.“ Mr Esterson is also calling on the Government to pay for this move by clamping down on identified tax avoidance loopholes. He said: ”There is a growing problem with some employment agencies forcing workers to become employees of an umbrella company. They then falsely inflate the worker’s travel and food expense claims, reducing tax and national insurance, and pocket the avoided tax as profits. HM Revenue and Customs has forecast that these schemes cost the exchequer £650m a year but more recent estimates have put it as high as £1 billion a year. Delaying the fuel duty rise until April 2013 would cost around £350.“

TRADERS from a former emporium based in Formby have spoken of their delight that they will be reopening in time for Christmas. The Formby Emporium which closed its doors at its former base on Stephenson’s Way during the summer is being relaunched as an online business, but customers will be able to view the items at a new location on the Mayflower Industrial Estate. James Williamson, who runs the emporium, said: “I am delighted to have a Formby base again, the unit isn’t as big but it’s light, airy and clean and dry. “It has been a real struggle to find somewhere affordable and this is a gamble because I have changed the business to being online, but customers can come and view furniture, collectables, mirrors and art. “I will make them most welcome and the warehouse will be open for customers on Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10am – 6pm and I will gladly make them a cup of tea.” For more information, you can contact James on the Emporium number 07848 696619.

Santa joins luncheon club members for breakfast

A taste of Ireland comes to library A TASTE of the Emerald Isle will come to Formby Library when local historian and author David McCabe gives the latest in a series of talks at the Duke Street venue on Tuesday, December 11. The Formby resident and author of the book ‘Pinkeens to Diddies’ who grew up south of Dublin will be looking at Ireland’s history through the years with talk entitled ‘A Personal View on Irish History.’ During December the library is also hosting a Christmas Choir event featuring performances by six local primary schools. The youngsters will sing festive songs with each performance lasting about half–an–hour. Everyone is welcome, each event is free and no booking is required. Schools will perform on the following days: Monday, December 10 at 1.30pm – Freshfield Primary School.

FATHER Christmas came to Formby at the weekend to visit the annual Breakfast with Santa.

The event which is hosted every year at the Luncheon Club by the Formby Inner Wheel is always

popular with the town’s children. Members of the club are pictured above.

Sefton MBC to answer questions. The session will also offer residents the opportunity to give feedback on the Sefton Coast Woodlands Forest Plan, which will shape the future of the area for the next decade. The coastal woodlands in Formby are currently the focus of work to protect the area’s red squirrels, and to defend the trees from disease and high winds. The work mainly includes thinning,

the process of removing selected trees to improve the health of the wider woodland, and is taking place at Altcar Rifle Range, Ainsdale Sand Dune National Nature Reserve, and Formby Golf Glub. The work is being coordinated by The Mersey Forest and landowners including The National Trust, Sefton MBC and Natural England, and is set to be completed in the beginning of January.

SEFTON members of BNI (Business Network International) enjoyed a successful trip to the organisation’s glittering Merseyside awards ceremony. The network, which is based on ‘word of mouth’ marketing, provides a structured and supportive group in which members can make business referrals based on personal knowledge and trust. During the awards event at Liverpool city centre’s Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Merseyside region was recognised as the most successful in UK and Ireland. Local BNI groups, known as ‘chapters’, and businesses from the area were also presented with accolades.

The Links Chapter, based in Formby, and the Mariners Chapter in Southport were crowned the joint overall winners at the ceremony, and the newly formed Horizon group, which is also in Southport, was named ‘Best New Chapter’. Meanwhile, Antony Howe from the Southport–based business Cleantouch was awarded the ‘Member of the Year’ prize for the Links Chapter, while John Porter of Crosby Associates won Merseyside’s ‘Area Director of the Year’ award. Steve Hanlon from Southport Carpets walked away with the ‘Givers Gain Award’ for referring almost £150,000 of business to chapter members.

Record– breakers! Mass arrival of Whooper swans at Martin Mere Centre manager, Andy Wooldridge, said: “We usually get peak numbers of Whooper swans in mid to late December so I still think numbers will continue to rise. “The highest previous count was 2100 in 2010 which also coincided with a

cold snap. The recent cold weather has certainly encouraged birds which roost elsewhere to visit Martin Mere allowing us to offer a fantastic spectacle during the swan feeds.” The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, which runs the site, added that Whooper swans spend the summer in Iceland and winter in the UK, with approximately 7% of the population of Whooper swans visiting Martin Mere over the winter.

FORMBY residents are invited to take part in the Parade and Gift Service being held at the Formby United Reformed Church. Alan Kellard from the Liverpool City Mission will be attending the service to receive the gifts and speak about the work of the Mission. A spokeswoman for the Formby United Reformed Church said: “Since 1829 the Liverpool City Mission has been caring for the poor and needy within the city. “Although social and economic conditions have improved beyond all recognition over the past two centuries, there still remains a significant minority who are homeless, or who have accommodation but live in abject poverty. “The Mission seeks to minister to these people by actions and words. “The Mission has three Rescue Centres in the area and the work involves the provision of hot meals, tinned foods, clothes, toys and furniture distribution. “The donations of clothes are sorted and then given out to those in need.” The service will be held at 11am this Sunday (December, 9) at Formby United Reformed Church on Church Road. Tea and coffee will be served after the service.

SEFTON motorists could start the new year in prison or a mortuary if they risk driving under the influence of drink or drugs this Christmas. That was the message from Merseyside Police on Friday (November 30), as it launched its drink and drug drive campaign for the festive season. With an increased number of parties and celebrations in bars, clubs, restaurants and friends’ houses during the festive period there is traditionally a spike in the number of people prepared to drive after drinking alcohol or taking drugs. During December the force will be cracking down on bad driving, particularly those who risk the lives of others by drink or drug driving, with an increased number of officers on the roads targeting those suspected of breaking the law. Chief Inspector John Hogan, head of roads policing in Merseyside, said: “Despite the obvious dangers of combining driving with alcohol or drugs, every year there are a number of people who are prepared to flout the law and continue to drive. “It only takes one of these people to lose control of their vehicle and kill or seriously injure another person – whether that be a stranger, friend or loved one. “My officers will be out in force this festive

spot the signs displayed by drug impaired drivers. “We are committed to not just arresting these drivers but also to educating them. “Our message to drivers is not to drink or take drugs and then drive – plan your evenings out property, use public transport or have a designated non–drinking driver. Alcohol affects everyone differently and can still be in your system many hours after you have drank. “Even the smallest amount of alcohol will affect your competence behind the wheel, your ability to judge speed and distance and will slow down your reactions. Anyone whose ability to drive is judged to be impaired by alcohol or drugs may be arrested and face the same penalty as a driver who is over the prescribed limit so I would ask people to consider if the risks are really worth it.” Last December police saw an increase in the number of people across Merseyside getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drink and drugs, compared to the previous year. Incidents on Sefton’s roads during December 2011 led to one death and seven serious injuries. Any driver involved in a road traffic collision, or who commits any traffic offence, can expect to be breathalysed and may be required to perform an impairment test. Failing the tests can result in severe penalties including a minimum 12–month driving ban.

IN the unlikely event I get asked to design a luxury car, the Citroen DS5 is probably not too far off what I’d come up with. Surely what you want in a plushly trimmed motor is plenty of space, some clever gadgets, a comfy ride, and an interior which, while clearly cosseting, shows where a bit of thought’s gone into it? Unfortunately, sales of luxury cars suggest you want sportiness and a blue–chip image instead. The best selling luxury car for this sort of outlay is BMW’s 3–Series. So what do you get if you’re a middle management type and you plump for Paris over Munich, or Ingolstadt or Stuttgart for that matter? Well, you get the world’s first diesel–hybrid system, and a clever one it is too; while a turbodiesel, in the case of the range–topper I tested one with 2.0 litres and 163bhp at its disposal, struts its stuff at the front end, an electric motor offers a helping hand by sending some eco–friendly oomph to the back wheels. Not only does it offer you the benefits of four wheel drive at this time of year, but it keeps things eco–friendly and, as far as the taxman’s concerned, cheap to run too. Yet what really grabs you with the DS5 is the interior. Fans of the smaller, strikingly good DS3 will find themselves in familiar territory, with the same attention to detail with the materials and use of colour but with the added flair of buttons in the roof, Boeing 747–style. It’s also far roomier than any of its immediate executive car rivals, thanks to Citroen shunning the saloon norm and going for a sleek hatchback instead. Admittedly, it’s not got the same grin factor to its handling as the smaller DS3 but that’s not what this luxury lounger’s about – if you do a lot of motorway work and value comfort over thrills, I’d struggle to find another premium offering that does the job as comfortably. Hand on heart, I couldn’t recommend the range–topping DSport versions – not when it’s straying close to Jag XF territory – but the mid–range DStyle, which Citroen reckon are going to be the biggest sellers, have got a lot going for them.

HERE’S an idea you’ll warm to. Why don’t we fit cars with proper boilers and thermostats? T’was a cold and frosty morning when the thought struck me. Faced with needing to take a car rather than the bus into work, I unlocked the garage and started up a stone cold Mazda MX–5 which immediately fogged up the moment I dared to exhale breath while sat inside. I was one of the lucky ones; elsewhere, the good people of Southport were scraping the ice of their windscreens. Here’s the rub. Almost every car I’ve driven on a cold morning, even shiny brand new ones, still require the efforts of some cheap de–icer before you can set off, and then a good few minutes before the icy chill of winter leaves the interior. Nor can you do the old trick of warming the car up while you sit indoors with a cuppa – not only is it illegal, but you might as well stick a sign on your pride ‘n’ joy with “STEAL ME” writ large all over it. With the exception of a wonderful January weekend in Wales, when I donned gloves and a woolly hat so I could enjoy the crisp mountain air in the MX–5 with the roof down, driving first thing in the morning at this time of year is no fun. Unless of course, you run a recently–made Range Rover. A car which comes with a little gas heater and a time–adjustable thermostat, just like your house does. In the same way I’ve always wondered why houses aren’t fitted with electric windows, it perplexes me why proper thermostats which you can preset to come on when you want – which have been around for ages – don’t come as standard on more cars. If you know you’re going to be setting off at eight every morning, wouldn’t it be great to preset a proper heating system to come on fifteen minutes earlier, so your pride and joy is

SPORT Late goal luck goes with Yellows at last Report by

Ron Ellis

Stockport County 3 Southport 4 IN an exciting rollercoaster of a game at Edgeley Park, Southport continued their good run of results against Stockport County, moving up to 17th place in the table. The Sandgrounders started off in spectacular style and were 2–0 up in the first eight minutes. Shaun Whalley was the architect of the first goal, making a solo run before passing to Chris Almond who made no mistake for his fourth league goal of the season. Two minutes later, Steve Ackrigg headed in Whalley’s corner making it a goal in both games he has played since his return from injury. At this point, County goalkeeper, Lewis King retired with a leg injury and was replaced by Ian Ormson but the young keeper was not able to stop a brilliant 30–yard lob from Andy Owens in the 33rd minute. At this point, Southport took their foot off the pedal and they were quickly made to pay for it. The defence failed to cope with renewed attacks by the home side and Paul Turnbull started the comeback with a header in the 42nd minute and this was swiftly followed by a Danny Hattersley penalty two minutes later after Tony McMillan, who otherwise had a excellent game, needlessly brought the player down. As the second half started, it was the Hatters who had the initiative and, sure enough, the equaliser came from defender Andy Halls in the 58th minute. It seemed inevitable that County

contingent. Braintree Town are the visitors to Haig Avenue on Saturday. The Yellows are now three points out of the relegation zone yet have the same number of points less than the team in eighth position which shows that a good run could propel them up the division to where Liam Watson thinks they deserve to be. The postponed home game against Lincoln City will now take place on Tuesday, January 8. Kick off at 7.45pm.

Formby washed out again A WATERLOGGED pitch forced Formby’s match against fellow promotion contenders Abbey Hey to be postponed. It was the third postponement in a row for the Squirrels who were keen to shake off the residue of their FA Vase defeat at Runcorn Town two weeks previously.

Southport have had some bad luck with last minute goals against them this season but this time their luck changed. With just one minute of normal time left, Karl Ledsham’s shot was deflected off the head of the unfortunate Danny Rowe past Ian Ormson for the winning goal to the relief of the large Southport
