Film awards gold for school SIGNHILLS Infants’ School in Cleethorpes is celebrating after scooping gold at the National Schools’ Film and Animation Awards. Page 3

SCHOOL children took to the streets of Cleethorpes with speed guns in a bid to catch out motorists and tackle road safety. A total of 18 children from St Peter’s School carried out an hourlong survey in the area surrounding the school, which has been designated a 20 miles-per-hour zone, under the watchful eyes of Humberside Police PCSOs as part of Road Safety Week. They collated information such as number and types of vehicles on the road and number of offences committed, as well as speeds of vehicles. Pictured operating the police speed register camera are St Peter’s Primary School pupils Connor Gelder and Shelbie Clark.

Resort saltmarsh debate hots up BY JIM WRIGHT Reporter


‘Pier was in perilous state’ CLEETHORPES historian and local author Alan Dowling, in his weekly column, looks back at August Bank Holiday Monday 1892 and the state of the resort’s pier. Page 20

RESORT businesses have been urged to air their views on the encroachment of the saltmarsh off Cleethorpes seafront. The appeal, from the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce, follows arguments on either side of the debate, voiced at a select committee looking into the issue. The mud-loving grass is popular with over-wintering waders, ducks and geese, but unpopular with those who fear it could soon take over the sandy stretch between the pier and the leisure centre. On Tuesday this week diggers removed small areas near to the leisure centre as part of an ongoing study into the saltmarsh being conducted by Hull University. At the North East Lincolnshire Council select committee meeting, Cllr John Fenty (Con, New Waltham and Humberston) called for action now to remove the marsh before it was too late. Although such an initiative would put the council at risk of prosecution – with the possibility, on conviction, of a £40,000 fine – it would raise the profile of an issue of huge importance. “We’ve been pussyfooting around for too long,” he said. “We’re getting nowhere fast.

Members of North East Lincolnshire Council’s saltmarsh select committee, left to right, chairman Cllr Vickers, Cllr Doug Pickett, Cllr Mick Burnett, Cllr Fenty and Mr Fleming of English Nature. Let’s get on with it and face the consequences. “Failing to act is holding back regeneration and putting the future of our tourist industry at stake. Lots of livelihoods lie on the back of this issue.” Agreement came from Cllr David Hornby (Con, Scartho) who urged: “Let's do it! It’s time to start to put people and

their livelihoods before the welfare of the flaming birds.” Cllr Leanor Pidgen (Lib-Dem, Croft Baker) said most people respected wildlife, but were adamant that the sands of the main holiday beach should be protected. “They don’t want to keep hearing ecothis, eco that,” she said. “They’re fed up

with having the environment shoved down their throats.” Portfolio holder for tourism Cllr Colin Eastwell (Lib-Dem, Croft Baker) estimated the industry to be about 11 per cent of the borough’s economy, bringing in important revenue to the council, for instance in foreshore parking charges. Noting that it would be at least another two years before a Hull University study into saltmarsh spread was completed, he insisted: “Time is of the essence – we can’t wait that long. “Something’s got to be done to halt the advance of this weed.” A worrying note was also sounded by guest house owner and Cleethorpes in Bloom chairman Bob Callison, who emphasised the fears of those with a stake in the tourism industry – cafes, restaurants, rock shop owners, hoteliers and other guest house owners. “People who want to sit on grass go to the countryside, not the beach – anyway saltmarsh is not the sort of grass anyone wants to sit on,” he said. Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway boss Cllr Chris Shaw (Lab, Sidney Sussex) acknowledged that “green tourism” offered growth potential, but claimed those who  Continued on Page 2.

School pupils target Avenue driving safety BY SAMANTHA BLAKE Repor ter

SCHOOL children took to the streets of Cleethorpes with speed guns in a bid to catch out motorists and tackle road safety. Humberside Police PCSOs organised the scheme as part of Road Safety Week, in partnership with Doug Wright, North East Lincolnshire Council School Crossing Patrol Manager. Eighteen children from St Peter’s Primary School carried out an hour-long survey in the area surrounding the premises, which has been designated a 20 milesper-hour zone. They collated information about the number of pedestrians, number and types of vehicles on the

As part of their Road Safety Week project, pupils of St Peter’s Primary School in Cleethorpes are shown by PCSO Shaun Lee how a speed register camera is used. road and number of offences committed, as well as recording the speeds of vehicles travelling along St Peter’s Avenue. A total of 26 vehicles exceeded the 20 miles-per-hour speed limit and drivers were also recorded using mobile phones and not wearing seatbelts. PCSO Shaun Lee said the initiative had had a dual purpose. “We want to educate the children and make them aware of the dangers on the roads around their

school and other roads when they are out with friends and family,” he said. “We also want to show a high visibility in the area around the school to encourage drivers to drive within the speed limits. “At this time of the year with the dark nights drawing in drivers need to take extra care, especially when travelling in built up areas such as St Peter’s Avenue and around schools.” St Peter’s Primary School

deputy head teacher Lee Dolphin said: “After the speed limit was lowered, the children were concerned about cars that speed past and the safety around the school. “We also wanted to show them how important it is that they wear their fluorescent jackets and they’ve realised how much more visible they are to traffic when they do. “It’s definitely been beneficial and it’s nice to have the road safety team involved.”

Adult social care ‘performing well’ AN innovative partnership between North East Lincolnshire Council and the North East Lincolnshire Care Trust Plus (CTP) has been awarded a grading of “performing well” for adult social care services. The grade three rating was announced by the Care Quality Commission yesterday (Wednesday). The partnership between the two bodies was formed two years ago and is the only one of its kind in the Yorkshire and Humber region. A pat on the back for nurses and others who provide care and support for the elderly on behalf of the

Care Trust Plus followed publication of the report. “They are doing a tremendous job,” said Cleethorpes-based Cllr Malcolm Morland, portfolio holder for adult social care. The report praised how staff worked across a spectrum of care services, not least in ensuring that the dignity of patients and clients was safeguarded. Other categories where the Care Quality Commission said care employees were doing a great job included encouraging emotional well-being and eliminating discrimination or harassment.

Cllr Morland (Lib-Dem, Sidney Sussex) believed the progress reflected the wisdom two years ago of merging sister departments of North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) and the former primary care trust to ensure operational excellence goes hand-in-hand with organisational alignment. “Bringing health and social care services together has clearly made a significant difference,” he said. Equally pleased was NELC’s executive director for community services Andrew Milner, who said: “It is vitally important that those adults receiving social care are

helped to live independently. “It is far better if they can take more control over the decisions and services that affect their lives.” But there will be no resting on laurels. “We will continue to drive forward improvements,” he said. The chief executive of Care Trust Plus, Jane Lewington, also welcomed the report and agreed that staff deserved all the plaudits. “We are all thrilled,” she enthused. “It demonstrates our commitment to providing quality services to those who require them.”

Resort saltmarsh debate hots up  Continued from Page 1. came to see the birds spent little money locally. “They fill up with petrol in Sheffield, then come here with sandwiches and a Thermos flask,” he argued. A different perspective came from Bernard Fleming, of English Nature, who said his organisation was committed to finding a solution, but confirmed it would oppose efforts to remove saltmarsh. He reminded the meeting of the council’s legal responsibility to safeguard a habitat of UK, European and global ecological importance. He went on to accuse councillors of being “Canutish” in seeking to resist the proliferation of vegetation which he maintained was a natural estuarial process arising from the accretion of mud.

Urging no action until completion of a fiveyear Hull University survey on the subject, he said: “You can no more halt a natural process than King Canute could hold back the waves.” In a slide presentation, Mr Fleming showed one of the beaches at Southport where the only effect of saltmarsh removal with mechanical diggers had been to leave a muddy morass that resembled the worst kind of building site. One solution, he suggested, might be for the council to adopt a less intensive beach-cleaning regime, which might encourage a spread outwards of sand dunes so that they “rolled over on to areas currently occupied by saltmarsh”. Cllr Fenty accused English Nature of indulging in a “conceited experiment” at the expense of Cleethorpes and its people. “What you’re doing is utterly unbearable,” he protested. Further meetings of the saltmarsh select com-

mittee, which is chaired by Cllr Martin Vickers (Con, Scartho) are likely to be held later this winter, possibly with evidence from representatives of organisations such as the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB and someone with expertise in promoting eco-tourism. Anne Tate, from the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce, urged businesses to make their voices heard. “The saltmarsh is an issue which has been discussed in local area council. We have been approached and we will be providing evidence to the select committee. “In the meantime, we are canvassing views of Cleethorpes businesses and would welcome representations on this issue.” They should be sent to, call (01472) 342981 or write to the chamber at the Port Offices, Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby, DN31 3LL.


AN injured rider was airlifted from Cleethorpes beach to hospital after falling from her horse. The woman, from the town’s Silver Shoe Equestrian Centre in Sea View Street, suffered neck and back injuries after her horse stumbled. A 999 call was made by the equestrian centre following the incident at lunchtime on Tuesday. Faced with an incoming tide, the council’s Beach Safety Team was tasked to take a paramedic to the casualty, who was more than a mile out. Beach safety officers Pat Gilding and Pete Mason assisted and gave GPS co-ordinates to direct the Lincolnshire Air Ambulance. The casualty was airlifted to the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby. Robert Chalmers, resort manager for North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “The fast incoming tide added some extra pressure and concerns about whether to move the casualty to a safer location. However, the Air Ambulance arrived at 12.50pm and airlifted her away. The tide surrounded the area at 1.05pm.”

SIGNHILLS Infants’ School is celebrating after scooping gold at the National Schools’ Film and Animation Awards. The pupils’ film, called “Reduce, reuse, recycle”, won the top award after beating off competition from Rotherham and Redbridge. Seven Year 2 pupils, who have now moved up to the junior school, were given the task of making a twominute film that was cross curricular-based and able to reach a wide audience. The children were in charge of the details, including the theme, script, storyboard and edits. After taking only a day to complete, the film stormed the regional awards, held at Grimsby Auditorium, before the youngsters discovered they had been shortlisted for the national honour. The glittering awards ceremony, held in London, was hosted by competition judge Floella Benjamin OBE. Janet Soper, who teaches ICT at the school and led the project, said: “The children really enjoyed it and came across very well. “It encourages them – every parent has a camera and the children get so much out of seeing their work on screen.”

Kerry Ashton, Year 2 teacher, said: “Other schools had been in the competition for seven or eight years and this was our first entry. “We just did it for fun really, to get experience of using the camera. We didn’t take it too seriously but because the children had so much input it came through.

“They were so excited to win.” Head teacher Jane Powell was delighted. She said: “It is the way forward. It’s a good way to convey messages. It boosts self esteem. “Education shouldn’t be all about results. Making learning fun is a great way to encourage participation and

promote better educational outcomes. “Going to the awards was also a learning curve for the children – they entered and were shortlisted and knew that they might not win their category. “But we did and it’s a big achievement; one we’re all very proud of.”

School celebrates its many classy students BY SAMANATHA BLAKE Reporter

HUMBERSTON Maths and Computing College presentation evening was opened by head boy Curtis Allenby, who declared the school’s achievements as “something to be proud of”. Curtis welcomed guests along with head girl Elle Fulcher, thanking them for coming to “celebrate their success” after gaining the school’s best ever GCSE results. Head teacher Brian Sarahan followed by reading out a message given to him by a parent. “Please could I thank all members of staff who have contributed to my son’s tremendous exam results,” it said. “He has today been fully accepted into the RAF, much of which is down to the help, support and hard work of the staff at Humberston. “For me,” Mr Sarahan continued, “this is what schools are about.” “Our job is to prepare young people for whatever they want to do in the future. Unfortunately for me, I was only head teacher for a few weeks before last year’s Year 11 moved on.

“I can honestly say, however, that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and I believe it’s the best decision I’ve made as a head teacher to take this job.” The school was placed in special measures by Ofsted following an inspection last December. This led to the resignation of then head. “I’ve seen schools where, for the next six months, the staff wallow in self pity and students get an awful deal, but staff at Humberston didn’t do that,” said Mr Sarahan. “I put that down to the way Jim Cunningham came in back in January and helped them get through that time to make sure none of the students suffered. “We’ve set very high targets for the current Year 11 – they’re very aspirational and next summer, when you pick up the local press and read the headlines, I want you to be able to say ‘wow’. “My pledge to you as head teacher is we’ll always have a personal touch and old fashioned values.” Brian Uren, ex-business studies teacher and deputy head, presented

the awards. He said: “This is the 23rd consecutive Humberston presentation evening I’ve attended and I can say that the class of 2009 are absolutely up there with the best so well done to them.” Following vocal performances by Lauren Smith and Naomi McLernon, chair of governors Wendy Bagnall closed proceedings. She said: “I’d like to thank all the staff for a tremendous year. It’s been a rocky year but everyone’s worked extremely hard and I’d like to say a big thank you to the parents for raising such wonderful students. “Please always remember our motto – to go out there and pursue your excellence.” Award winners: English, Bethany Andrews; Mathematics, Anique Cox; Science, Laura Hill; ICT, Peter Shaw; Art, Laura Hill; Geography, James Yeatman; History, Adam Helland; Business Studies, Emily Pullan; Modern Foreign Languages, Rachel Woodward; Music and Drama, Naomi McLernon; Media Studies, Lucy Telford; Physical Education, Lee Corry; Health and Social Care, Tessa Soper;

Bright future beckons BY SARAH SPENCER Repor ter

THE new principal designate of the joint faith school to be opened in Cleethorpes next year believes it has a very exciting future. Peter Cantley (43) anticipates St Andrew’s College, due to open its doors in September, as being a learning environment where outstanding teaching and learning takes place. He sees it as benefiting from state-of-the-art buildings and inhouse facilities and supported by the specialisms of the current Matthew Humberstone Church

Peter Cantley.

School wins praise THE Matthew Humberstone Church of England School in Cleethorpes has been highly praised in a new report. “The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Matthew Humberstone as a Church of England school are “good� it states, continuing that “the school is making remarkable progress because of the head teacher’s Christian related vision and professional vigour�. The fi fin ndings are revealed in a National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools Report, written following a visit last month. It states head teacher Stephen Cook “has created a partnership of trust with the hard working and committed Interim Executive Board, talented and skilful staff and a stu-


dent body growing in self-confi fid dence. “A developing Christian ethos with managerial openness and trustworthiness has renewed a sense of pride in this school, where everybody matters and Christian values predominate.� The Chatsworth Place school was placed under special measures by Ofsted in 2006, however was later given a clean bill of health after working hard to make improvements with support from staff at Healing School. It is due to close at the end of the current academic year and be replaced by a new joint Anglican Roman Catholic church school on its former Clee Road lower school site, with new buildings planned for 2012. The report listed the school’s established strengths as: Christian based leadership and management styles based on transparency and trust. Readiness on the part of staff and students to try new things and embrace new ideas. Purposeful en-

couragement of an inclusive global outlook, inclusivity and respect for a variety of beliefs. It stated that Matthew Humberstone, through its distinctive Christian character, was good at meeting the needs of all learners, that the impact of collective worship on the school community was good, and the effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school was good. Focus for development was listed as: Develop an agreed and inclusive Christian ethos suitable for incorporation in the new joint church college into which the school will be merged. Build a closer working partnership with the local Anglican church communities to develop an effective school chaplaincy. Develop increased student participation in the planning and delivery of collective worship in an imaginative way. Implement a systematic evaluation of the impact of collective worship on the school community.

of England School and St Mary’s Roman Catholic School, Grimsby, from which it will be formed. St Andrew’s will be located at the Chatsworth Place home of Matthew Humberstone, with new buildings planned under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project for 2012 on the site of the former Matthew lower school on Clee Road. Mr Cantley said: “My vision for St Andrew’s College is that it will offer an education which is fun, exciting and enjoyable, and that it will progress to becoming recognised by Ofsted as being ‘outstanding’. “It is my hope that it will then move on to become a world class school, exceptional for its student achievement in conventional educational terms and for its international projects. “I want to ensure that young people who attend the college are not only equipped to change the world for the better in the future, but are changing the world for the better.� Mr Cantley, currently the deputy headteacher at Canon Slade School, a high performing school in Bolton, believes there is no reason why St Andrew’s College should not eventually achieve outstanding results.

The range of GCSE equivalent qualifications available through OCR Nationals, NVQs and BTECs provide the right frameworks for all students to excel. State-of-the-art ICT facilities will be provided to support independent learning in all subjects and to encourage the development of fast track courses. He will encourage subject leaders to take full advantage of the master classes on offer from universities, in order to further enrich the students’ education and to foster students’ ambitions to pursue further study in higher education. He will also seek to subsidise the postgraduate study of staff at all levels, particularly where such study is closely linked to key features of the school improvement plan. Mr Cantley said: “In developing the school’s specialisms in business, enterprise, humanities and languages, I will look to the subject leaders of these areas to blaze a trail of excellence in curriculum delivery and to benefit every subject in the school through sharing their good practice and keeping all members of the teaching staff abreast of outstanding national practice within the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust network.

“I will encourage a creative approach to the delivery of these specialisms through cross-curricular project days, trips, visits, and work experience related activities.� Mr Cantley said he had visited the students councils of St Mary’s and Matthew Humberstone this week and found the pupils to be “wonderful�. He hoped St Andrew’s would be a “beacon of reconciliation� and become involved in supporting charitable projects around the world focused on bringing together groups previously at loggerheads. Matthew Humberstone was placed under special measures by Ofsted in 2006, however has since been given a clean bill of health. “My impression is that Matthew Humberstone has real momentum at the moment and is progressing well in terms of having moved out of special measures. It also recently had a church school inspection which rated it as being good,� He said St Andrew’s presented exciting opportunities for a new start. It will be the only joint church trust school in the country School’s awards night – see page 17.

Apology over sound blunder AN apology has been issued by Waltham Parish Council chairman Cllr Martin Archer over a glitch which marred the village’s Remembrance Day event. Many of those who attended the event complained that they had been unable to hear the proceedings. It was unclear, for instance, when the two-minute silence began and when it ended. At least one villager wrote a letter of protest to the parish council, saying she would have been better advised to have stayed at home and watched the coverage on television.

Others “tut-tutted� to individual councillors. The parish council had only recently purchased a new public address system, so the question was asked “What went wrong?� According to Cllr Archer, it was quite simple – the microphone had not been switched on. He had been involved in other aspects of the event, such as the parade, and had been unaware of the oversight until it was too late. “I can only apologise,� said the chairman. “It will not happen again.�

Village website off to good start THE new Waltham website has got off to a fl fly ying start According to parish clerk Lesley Leach, it attracted no fewer than 222 visitors November 1-29. Of these, eight left messages about community affairs which could help councillors in the formulation of future policy. Cllr Bill Frisby suggested that, in future, the council should consider setting up a dedicated debating page to allow residents to swap comments among themselves and the wider community on topical issues.

However, such a practice could result in some of the submissions being frivolous, vexatious or even libellous – putting the reputation of the council at risk, it was stated during the discussions. It was agreed that, at least for the time being, the comments should have restricted access, though the clerk and the chairman, Cllr Martin Archer, will be able to print them off for wider distribution if deemed appropriate. The site can be visited at:

Hopes raised over play areas HOPES are rising of a start to construction of two ambitious new play areas for Waltham. One, off Neville Turner Way, would be for under-10s and funded to the tune of ÂŁ50,000 by North East Lincolnshire Council. The other, for older children, would be developed on Mount Pleasant, subject to ÂŁ40,000 parish council monies being matched by external grants of a similar amount.


At the December meeting of the parish council, members thrashed out equipment requirements and designs as submitted by two of the various companies that have expressed an interest in becoming involved. Pupils of Leas Junior School are being consulted and any other interested individuals are welcome to inspect the proposals which are on file in the parish council office.

Traffic ideas create a storm BY JIM WRIGHT Reporter

A REVIEW of village traffic arrangements has whipped up a hornets’ nest in Waltham. It has sparked anguish for some residents and resulted in the resignation of the chairman of the parish council’s fivemember traffic management sub-group. The idea that has triggered most controversy is one to ease pressure on High Street by creating a one-way system with its main route along Kirkgate. Among seven concerned villagers who attended this week’s December parish council meeting was Jenny Bunn, of 11 Kirkgate, who voiced strong objections. “Kirkgate is narrow and twisted,� she said. “It is patently not equipped to deal with any increased volume of traffic.� The speaker went on to warn that the introduction of street furniture such as belisha beacons and bus shelters would have the effect of reducing property values. She said that already one shelter near her home was a magnet for noise, rubbish and incidents fuelled by alcohol or drugs. “Sometimes it keeps my son awake at night,� she said.

30-home Ings Lane plan gets red light A CONTROVERSIAL scheme for a 30-home development in a scenic part of Waltham has been refused. Although the parish council was still awaiting confirmation, this was confirmed by Cllr Philip Jackson who is both a ward representative and chairman of North East Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee. Neither he nor the planning committee had any part in the decision, which was made under delegated powers on the recommendation of senior case officer Bill Turner. In his report on the application at a site off Ings Lane, Mr Turner said “inadequate provision� had been made for pedestrian safety along the lane from its junction with Grove Lane. He went on to describe the scale of the proposed development as “cramped� such that it would “unduly detract from the character of the area�. He was also concerned that no provision had been made for affordable housing to allow “the creation of a mixed, sustainable and inclusive community�. The applicant, Gary Lister, has the option of submitting an amended application or appealing.

Also present was Robin Foster, though he reserved his right to speak until a more opportune time. The issue has become a big debating issue in the village and prompted comments on the new parish council website. One of them – which was anonymous – accused sub-group chairman Cllr Bill Frisby of having a prejudicial interest because he lived in the High Street. In the wake of the furore, he has taken advice from North East Lincolnshire Council’s monitoring officer Rob Walsh and stepped down – not just from the chairmanship but from the group. But this has sparked fresh controversy with both Cllr Paul Teanby and Cllr Keith Baker expressing support for their colleague. Said Cllr Teanby: “I am very cross. Bill has come up with a lot of positive ideas on a range of issues that need addressing – parking provision, cycleways, child safety, bus stop locations and much else.� Cllr Baker said it was “totally wrong�

for Cllr Frisby to have felt compelled to step down, simply because of his home address. “We all live in Waltham,� he said. “We all have an interest in this.� Cllr Frisby said the debate had become “bogged down� on the issue of a oneway system. “The group has simply been exploring how to improve traffic flow for the wider benefit of the village,� he said. Parish vice chairman Cllr Peter Woodliff suggested introducing parking restrictions on High Street might ease flow, but he acknowledged such a measure would be opposed by business owners. Chairman Cllr Martin Archer said the ongoing ructions risked “blighting� certain properties and urged the sub-group to complete its work, then come up with proposals or options which could be debated by the parish council in due course. However, because of the ill-feeling, it was not clear who would take on the chairmanship or even when the subgroup would next meet.

MEMBERS of Home-Start North East Lincolnshire gathered to hear about the charity’s successful year, at the annual general meeting. The group, which was established in 1995, is part of Home-Start UK and covers the whole of the county, aiming to provide support to families with children under five years old. Specially trained volunteers are on hand offering regular home visits to an area which is considered to be of high deprivation, with families increasingly under pressure from relationship breakdowns, financial difficulties and isolation. Predominantly funded by local government, the charity aims to support parents in situations as diverse as isolation, bereavement,

multiple births, illness and disability, or who simply find parenting a struggle. They provide non-judgmental practical and emotional support and help build the family’s confidence and ability to cope. They also give direct support to children, practical help with household budgeting, information on other services and outreach and family group work. Home-Start runs more services and has more volunteers supporting more families than any other family support charity in the United Kingdom. Guest speaker at the meeting was Nick Triplow, who presented excerpts from his book “The Women They Left Behind�.

Asthma worry in resort area

A PART of Cleethorpes has been revealed as being one of the areas in North East Lincolnshire where asthma is most prevalent. Between 2004 and last year, 66 residents of the Croft Baker ward – which includes the area around St Peter’s Avenue – were admitted to hospital with the distressing condition which causes breathing difficulties. The survey was requested by Cllr Stewart Swinburn Con) who was concerned that dockside coal dust or chemical factory pollution might put his Immingham ward at the top of the list. But Immingham, is midway down the list of the borough’s 15 wards with only 44 cases. The figures for the other Cleethorpes-area wards are as follows: Haverstoe (33), Humberston and New Waltham (31), Sidney Sussex (55), Waltham (19), Wold (18).

No to extension AN application for a rear extension to be built at 110 Humberston Avenue, Humberston has been turned down by North East Lincolnshire Council planners on the grounds that it might have an adverse impact on the neighbours. The unsuccessful applicant is Mr Shaun Greaves.

Sales events raise £1,000 for hospice Members of the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Ladybird Club gathered at an auction to raise money for Grimsby’s Children’s Hospice at Cleethorpes Cricket Club. At the front are club chairman Christine Regan and auctioneer John Searby. The event was organised by Enid Galloway and Julie Wood. Together with a quiz night and jumble sale, it raised £1,000.

‘Agadoo’ pop star in panto frolics DENE Michael, former front man with the 1980s hit group Black Lace, is coming to Cleethorpes this month – and he will be appearing in a gaudy frock. He is swapping his Hawaiian trademark shirts for something rather more tasteless when he plays the ugly sister Davinia Trollop in Cinderella which opens to the public at the Parkway Cinema on December 18. Dene found fame more than 20 years ago when he joined UK chart toppers Black Lace who had hits with Agadoo and I Am The Music Man before he pursued a solo career. Now he has joined Yellow Brick Road Stage Productions’ version of the popular panto which runs until January 3. Harrison Breeze, company director of Yellow Brick Road, said: “I knew Dene from the time when we were working in Spain together so luckily I was able to get him for the show. “He will also be performing his new version of the old Black Lace hit ‘Music Man 2009’ and he is donating all royalties from the sale of the record to BBC Children In Need.” After spending almost 15 years in Spain, Dene is back in the UK with a new Black Lace line up. The band is originally from the Leeds area and first came to the public eye after being selected to represent the UK in the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest in which they came seventh. But Dene Michael did not join the band until 1986 where he remained for five years. His performance in the Cleethorpes panto is being sponsored by the Stallingborough Grange Hotel at Stallingborough. Harrison, who plays Prince

Charming in the show, said there would three days of performances for local schools before Cinderella opens to the public on December 18. Messingham-based Yellow Brick Road productions was formed in 2003 by husband and wife team Nic (Harrison) and Rachel Breeze with the aim of promoting up and coming talent. “We started the company with the aim of providing good, quality entertainment across the spectrum,” he said. Tickets can be obtained from the box office at the Parkway Cinema or online at

SUMMARY Boy broke ankle in road accident A 16-year-old boy suffered a broken right ankle in a collision with a grey car as he crossed Laceby Road close to the Nuns Corner roundabout. Two males in the car stopped to see if the victim was okay along with another member of public who took the victim to hospital. However, they failed to give any details at the time or follow the victim to hospital. The incident happened at around 3.20pm on Friday, November 20. Police officers investigating the incident are appealing for the males in the grey car or other witnesses to contact them on 0845 60 60 222, quoting log 821 of 20/11/2009.

Retention of canopy passed THE planning green light has been given by North East Lincolnshire Council for the retention of a canopy to the front of 147 Bentley Street, Cleethorpes. The succesful applicant was Mrs A Rawlins.

Chalet move is ruled out RON Shaw has been refused planning permission to extend the chalet at 264 Humberston Fitties because his application to North East Lincolnshire Council carried insufficient structural information. The authority says the details are required for consideration because of the location’s vulnerability to flood risk.

Garage would be ‘unsightly’ A PROPOSAL for a detached garage to be erected to the side of 30 Grainsby Avenue, Cleethorpes, has been turned down. Senior planner Richard Limmer took the view that the scale of the proposed development would form “a discordant feature” resulting in “an unduly detrimental impact on the street scene”. The unsuccessful applicant was Mick Henry.

Approval for maisonettes

Dene Michael, stars as an ugly sister.

RUSSELL Davy has been given the thumbs-up by North East Lincolnshire Council to change the use of 2 Bradford Avenue, Cleethorpes, to two maisonettes.


Competition for festive homes A COMPETITION has been launched to find the best decorated home in North East Lincolnshire while raising money for charity. To enter, householders who decorate the outside of their homes with festive lights, can send in their name and address to Kettle funeral directors of 135 Granville Street, Grimsby, along with a £1 entry fee. All fees will be donated to the Blue Cross, and Kettles are also giving £500 to a charity chosen by the winners. The prize for the best entry will be six tickets to this year’s pantomime at Grimsby Auditorium on Saturday, January 2, with a limousine for transport. There will also be a runner-up’s prize of Freshney Place gift vouchers. The final will be judged on Friday, December 18 by Austin Mitchell MP, and Julie Donn from the Blue Cross.

Nurses’ fair for ward FESTIVE spirit was in the air for a team of fundraising nurses at a Christmas fair held in aid of the Beds4Bee2 Appeal. The nurses, from Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital’s B2 ward, have teamed up with former patient June Blackburn to help reach their £30,000 target. The appeal, which was launched in July, is raising money for specialist equipment and training to benefit the higher dependency patients on the ward. June, who had her gallbladder removed at the hospital, is chair of the Scartho Community Centre Committee, who hosted the fair. She was delighted to see so many people turn out to help the cause. “Everyone has been absolutely amazing,” she said. “I think that we can do a lot more for charity and can sometimes be a bit com-

placent in this area for some reason. “When you look round and see so many people, though, you realise that we’re doing this together; it’s for the community. “Everyone has been so generous.” Stallholders turned out in force to support the event, with everything from crafts, jewellery and shrubbery, to face painting and raffles. There were also performances from the Stagecoach Theatre Arts group. Andrea Benson, deputy manager of the B2 ward, said: “It’s very important for us to be able to give specialist care regularly. “We’re aiming to reduce the use of intensive care beds and to ultimately increase the comfort of the patients.” Di Winn, senior staff nurse, added: “Everyone has been behind us and has really been great in bringing us into the community. “It breaks down a bit of a barrier.”

Litter volunteers get to work in Scartho THE Big Clean-up arrived in Scartho when a group of volunteers took to the streets to get rid of litter. Armed with bright yellow bags and litter pickers, they scoured the area collecting discarded drinks cans, empty cigarette packets and fast food cartons, along with more general litter. Several sacks were filled with

FOR using a hand-held mobile phone while driving along Clee Road in Cleethorpes, Neil Wheeler has been fined £150 and ordered to pay £40 towards prosecution costs and the £15 victim surcharge. Magistrates considered banning the 38-year-old from the wheel, but decided to be lenient after noting that he acts as a carer for his housebound mother and coaches cricket to underprivileged children. The defendant, of Beacon Court, Grimsby, admitted the offence.

rubbish carelessly thrown away. Among the volunteers was Scartho ward councillor David Hornby, who said that, although he was impressed with the general state of cleanliness in and around Scartho, he felt more could be done to ensure litter was deposited in the bins and not thrown into the street. Cllr Hornby said: “A growing

problem seems to be dogs fouling the streets. Although I am sure most pet owners take a responsible attitude when it comes to cleaning up after their animals, I would ask all owners to help keep our community clean.” The Big Clean-up was organised by Ernie Brown, chairman of Grimsby in Bloom, and his wife Jacquie.

attendance and a local choice has been booked to add to the Christmas spirit by singing carols. In keeping with the religious aspect of the Christmas story, a girl will play the Virgin Mary riding a real donkey from the local Seaview Street stables, accompanied by three Wise Men. Karen said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Christmas party used to be a popular annual event, but for a variety of reasons it seemed to peter out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we have had one for at least 10 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now we are back and it will be bigger and better.â&#x20AC;? She said local hotel owner Bob Callison, one of the key figures behind the Cleethorpes Bloom success this year, had been a huge help in get-

ting the party up and running again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did try ourselves but hit a few planning snags. But Bob has been quite an inspiration and has been largely responsible for getting it off the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is great for Cleethorpes and seems to know all the right things to do,â&#x20AC;? she added. The Seaview Street market starts at 3pm and will run late into the evening. All the shops and cafes will remain open as the party gets into full swing. But the big party will get under way at 6pm when 1990s pop idol Chesney Hawkes, who is appearing in the panto Jack and the Beanstalk, at the Grimsby Auditorium switches on the St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Avenue Christmas lights

Bright beacon and huge spirit The Rev Paul Hunter. I WOULD like to pay my tribute to the towns of Grimsby and Cleethorpes for their solidarity and community spirit, which reflects Wootton Bassett. The homecoming and the funerals of Matt and Jimmy were inspirational to me in showing the depth of love and empathy for these young men.

Thank you to each and everyone for contributing to a bright beacon that still shines in our two towns. There will be many good causes asking for your money in the coming days. I do hope you will take every opportunity to support the Help for Heroes charity and con-

tinue the spirit of these past three weeks. The Rev Paul Hunter, Rector of Cleethorpes, St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Avenue, Cleethorpes.

Musician Billie REGARDING the photograph (left) in the November 26 edition of the Cleethorpes Chronicle. The musician on the right hand side of the picture (in pale trousers) is Billie Jackson. He was my uncle, married to my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Mary, and lived in Beverley Crescent for many years. I believe he was quite a well known musician in his time in the area.

He had a son, William, and a daughter, Betty, who I think are still both living in the Grimsby area. I think he died in the 1970s or early 1980s but I had moved away from Grimsby at that time so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really remember. I hope this is helpful. Pauline Miller, address supplied.

LAST week the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabinet rejected the idea of a directly-elected mayor for North East Lincolnshire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something I have been campaigning on for a number of years. An elected mayor is really just a directly elected leader of the council. There need be no additional costs since one role disappears and another emerges to take its place. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never understood why so many councillors oppose elected mayors, except that it transfers power from the members of whichever party happen to have a majority on the council to elect the leader and Cllr Vickers. transfers it to the voters. At a time when politicians are, understandably, held in low regard by the public, here is an opportunity for candidates to put a clear manifesto before the public with which they can be clearly identified and the electorate can make a judgement as to whether or not they have delivered. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very much in favour of more power being passed to voters. At the moment far too much power is in the hands of unelected unaccountable quangos and the like. I shall continue to campaign for more direct election including elected police commissioners both locally and, if successful at the General Election, in Parliament. Cllr Martin Vickers, Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Cleethorpes.

Town Teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation Finally, I would like to state how the Town Team appears to be driving forward in terms of quick wins that make such a difference to tourists and residence alike. The station clock is now working thanks to the hard work of Cleethorpes Renaissance Town Team member Alan Johnson, and we are also looking at other quick wins such as binoculars to be possibly located down the seafront. The tides of change are sweeping through Cleethorpes. We now need more people to come forward and contribute because, as a Town Team, we are only as strong as the strengths of our members. It is open to everyone, and it is essential that as many people as possible take part. Matthew Jason Brown, Poplar Road, Cleethorpes.

I WOULD like to take this opportunity to thank all those who were part of the Cleethorpes Renaissance Town Team for their warm reception following my presentation. It has long been a passion of mine that a university satellite campus should be set up in Cleethorpes in order to benefit the local economy and to raise the aspirations of all young people in the area. It was great to see how positive the Town Team was with the idea. I would be grateful if young people from all over the area who are at school and collage could write in to tell the Town Team whether you would have an interest in having a university campus in Cleethorpes. After all, it is essential that the young people of North East Lincolnshire, as well as those people who wish to study as mature students, give their opinions on the proposal.

Globetrotting Andy glad to be back home in resort BY VINCENT McDONAGH Reporter

NDY McCluskey has spent so much of his working life travelling around the world that he feels he could write his own airline departure lounge guide book. But when push comes to shove the only place he has ever wanted to return to is his home town of Cleethorpes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make no mistake I thoroughly enjoyed everywhere I went, and have visited fantastic locations,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet right here on the South Bank of the Humber is where I want to be.â&#x20AC;? His love of Cleethorpes is probably the main reason why just over a year ago he decided to invest a fair bit of money developing Kingsway Kiosks, next to the leisure centre, on the seafront. He took over the kiosk, then a small outdoor cafĂŠ, from his sister-in-law and her husband and has developed it into a Continental style complex offering not just food, but regular musical entertainment as well. The new-look kiosk has recently celebrated its first anniversary and Andy says he is more than happy with the way things have gone. Kingsway Kiosks is built on the site of the old CafĂŠ Dansant and some visitors claim that if you listen closely enough you just hear the ghostly echoes of 1940s swing music or be-bop from the 1950s. Down the years it played host to jazz greats like Johnny Dankworth and Cleo Laine. There is even a story that the Hollywood actor and heart throb Robert Taylor visited the place during the war when he was stationed at a nearby American airbase. Whether true or not, there is no doubt that the Dansant is as legendary in local folklore as its also demolished sister across the road, the Winter Gardens. To call the new place a kiosk doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really do it


justice, but the title remains as a mark of respect to the earlier smaller business. There is a large outdoor seating area overlooking the beach which Andy says has probably the best outlook in Cleethorpes. Few would disagree with him. It is both child and dog friendly, with an indoor conservatory area thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully heated in winter. And there is a sort of Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cave selling and hiring everything a family needs for a day at the seaside â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from buckets and spades to deckchairs. But the kioskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular draw is the regular programme of entertainment which includes nostalgia music nights recalling earlier decades. Like so many people who have decided to settle down in Cleethorpes, Andy was born in Yorkshire, in 1962. He grew up in Huddersfield where his father worked in the local fire service before transferring to Humberside Fire Brigade in 1974. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lived in Bridlington for the first few years before moving to Immingham where I finished my education,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a teenager I used to come to Cleethorpes a lot with my friends. It was a great place for a night out and to meet the girls.â&#x20AC;? Andy did later meet one special girl, Jenny, who he married. They now have two grown-up daughters, Lauren and Amy. His first major job was with Cosalt on the Fish Docks, working in their industrial safety division, before switching to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marine division. He then got a job with a marine safety company in Northern Ireland which took him out to Dubai for the next three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dubai was a great place to work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I appreciate the state has some financial problems which are dominating the headlines at the moment, but I enjoyed every minute of it when I was out there and I got to love the Arab way of life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a wonderful family-orientated culture where they really look after each other. I just wish we could see some of it over here at times.â&#x20AC;?

However, because of the oppressive heat and the fact he was travelling so much meant leaving Jenny and the girls, he decided to move back to Cleethorpes while he finished out his contract. Andy then got a job with another survival equipment company which meant even more globetrotting, but this time it was from his home base in North East Lincolnshire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very interesting job because we were doing work on G-force suits for the new Eurofighter pilots and on clothing for the military including the special forces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no doubt that flying around the world in business can be pleasurable. I saw some exotic locations, but it is surprising how quickly you tire of it after a while. You just want to come home and stay there.â&#x20AC;? He eventually did just that and launched his first venture, the web-based business which sells model fire engines, ambulances, helicopter and other emergency vehicles. More than 40 per cent of his orders are from overseas and he says the models â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which range from horse drawn fire tenders to the latest equipment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are particularly popular at Christmas and as retirement gifts for firemen and others. The Kingsway Kiosks project came into focus when his sister in law, who ran the original kiosk, decided to retire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided I was too long in the tooth to keep going around the world in the way I was doing and saw an opportunity to do something I had long wanted to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; open something in Cleethorpes.â&#x20AC;? Getting final planning approval was quite a struggle at first and the environmental group Natural England insisted that he build the extension in summer to minimise the impact on bird life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This meant I had to open what was essentially a summer holiday business just before winter set in which was not the best of starts.â&#x20AC;?

though the weather could have been better. Like all holiday business owners he remains optimistic that next summer will be a scorcher. Andy says Cleethorpesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Britain in Bloom success this year has been a huge boost for the resort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has given everyone a real feeling of civic pride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you take a step back Cleethorpes is a wonderful place to visit. You do see very little litter about these days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is flat which means it is great for the elderly, the infirm and people with children. I think we should do more to encourage people to come out promenading in the evenings in the same way as they do in France and Spain. It is so civilised.â&#x20AC;? Although little more than a year old, the new look Kingsway Kiosks has become a major attraction in its own right and is popular with swimming and vintage motor organisations. A group of rugby players recently voted it the place which serves the best breakfasts in Cleethorpes. Andy and his wife have their own website which highlights all the attractions in the resort including rival cafĂŠ businesses. He says that while the resort has made a great deal of progress in the past couple of decades, he feels there is room for further improvement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do need at least one new large hotel and we need to attract more visitors. Cleethorpes has competition from places like Scarborough, Bridlington and Skegness. I certainly believe that with the right sort of marketing we could get an extra 10,000 people coming in every week during the summer. That would do such a lot for local businesses.â&#x20AC;? But if he had a magic wand, Andy said he would like to see the return of a Winter Gardens-style venue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know it needed modernising, but its demolition was a huge loss to the resort,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever I went abroad and told people where I came from they would often mention the Winter Gardens. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how well it was known.â&#x20AC;? In the meantime he hopes his regular musical nostalgia nights will make up some of that loss.

SUMMARY Plan for four bungalows

A brave smile from Sgt Telford’s mother Cheryl with his father Ron and family members as she speaks with the Rector of Grimsby, Canon Michael Hunter.

Thousands pay tribute to Afghanistan soldier BY SAMANTHA BLAKE Reporter

BRAVE soldier Sergeant Matthew Telford (37), who died in Afghanistan, was laid to rest in a moving service at St James’ Church. Thousands of people brought Grimsby to a standstill as they honoured the memory of Sgt Telford, of the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards. The funeral came just 24 hours after Cleethorpes bid farewell to Guardsman Jimmy Major, family and friends gathering once again to remember a loved one who died in the call of duty. The flag-draped coffin of the Scartho soldier drew up outside the church, closely followed by wife Kerry, parents Ron and Cheryl and sister Eleanor. A floral tribute in the hearse of Sgt Telford, from sons Callum (nine) and Harry (four) spelled out “Daddy”.

The coffin was carried into the church to the sound of Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms, as scores of people gathered around the church bowed their heads. Canon Michael Hunter welcomed those gathered inside the church and out, saying everyone’s support “means so much”. “Matthew has brought honour to our community and we link arms with Kerry and the family in their tragic loss,” he continued. Padre Peter Hewlett-Smith OBE, Officiating Chaplain to the Grenadier Guards, led the tributes to Matthew. He said: “I consider it a privilege to have known Matt and to have spoken to him. “I have tried to speak to as many people as possible and gain as many tributes, and what comes through so clearly is Matthew’s presence. “He was approachable, honest and straightforward and was the perfect choice to be a

regimental recruiter.” The Right Reverend David Rossdale, Bishop of Grimsby, gave a short address: “The crowds gathered around the church today, as they gathered on Saturday when Matthew’s and Jimmy’s coffins arrived in Grimsby, speak powerfully of the deep respect that this community has for those who have lost their lives in the service of our country. “Family and friends who loved and cherished Matthew, and the pain and emptiness they are living with now is a symptom of the deep love they have for Matthew – a love that will not let them go and which Matthew’s death does not in any way diminish.” Peter Davidson (21), who listened to the service from outside the church, said: “It’s been a really emotional time for the people of Grimsby and Cleethorpes. “Losing two soldiers in this way is tragic and I just wanted to pay my respects.”

Not forgotten. Sgt Telford’s friends throw roses over the coffi fin n.

The coffi fin n of Sgt Telford is carried by Grenadier guardsmen past church offi ficcials as it leaves St James’ Church.

Wearing her husband’s medals, Sgt Telford’s wife Kerry speaks with regiment padre Peter Hewlett-Smith.

ON Friday (November 27) St Andrew’s Hospice celebrated 30 years of caring for the people of Grimsby with a dinner at The Grimsby Institute of Further Education (featured on page 16). In that time the Hospice has grown from humble beginnings as a Day Care Centre (Sundays only) at The Molson Centre to offering Palliative Care, which includes respite care, symptom management, rehabilitation and terminal care for adults from all over North East Lincolnshire with the children’s Hospice services being avail-

able from 2001 offering care for children throughout Lincolnshire, Hull and East Riding. All services are provided free to patients and their families. The Hospice is a registered charity and needs almost £3million per year to provide patients and their families with the highest standard of palliative care available anywhere. Of the total funds needed to care for patients just 13 per cent is provided through statutory funding and the rest is raised through the generosity of the general public.

To keep running costs to a minimum a large percentage of the work is carried out by volunteers who give freely of their time and skills and without whom the Hospice just could not survive. The St Andrew’s Hospice Lottery is just one of the ways in which money is raised and recently this has seen the advent of the new ‘Big Fish’ weekly lottery ticket which can be purchased at the Hospice or any of our charity shops.

BY SAM LANGDALE Children’s Hospice

FRIDAY September 18, saw me climbing into my car with Gemma Hartley, two Hosmice, collection buckets and my faithful trainers on our way to take part in the Great North Run on behalf of the Children’s Hospice. Well-wishers lined the streets, live bands played all styles of music and The Red Arrows flew overhead. Altogether there was a great carnival atmosphere. We stayed in a local hotel on the quayside overlooking the Millennium Bridge. Saturday was the junior Great North Run which is when Gemma and I dressed up as the Hosmice. The children absolutely adored the Hosmice, and we raised lots of money in the collecting

buckets. We also met a few celebrities such as Colin Jackson and Jonathan Edwards. They were both very supportive of our fundraising efforts and Jonathan rendered me speechless with his charm and good looks! Sunday dawned bright and clear. Sting was there at the starting line to see all 54,000 of us off. The atmosphere was electric. Despite spraining my knee in my final training session the week before, I managed to complete the course in 2 hours 7 minutes. I would have liked to have done it in 1 hour 45 minutes but there’s always next year. Finally, I would like to say a big Thank You to all those who supported me both with trainSam Langdale with (left) Olympic hurdler Colin Jackson and triple jumper Jonathan Edwards. ing and sponsorship.

The hospice has seven charity shops and the income generated from them forms an important part of its fundraising income. It has recently started to sell small electrical items which are all fully checked by qualified PAT Testers before being sold. There are many other ways to get involved such as taking part in our Annual Ladies Sleepwalk or Santas on the Run which takes place on Sunday, December 13. Put on your Santa Suit (provided by us) and join in a gentle two mile run from Ramsden’s in Cleethorpes Road to Blundell Park, twice round the pitch and back for mince pies and coffee. Registration forms and sponsor forms are available from the Hospice. In the New Year how about shaking off those Christmas Cobwebs and joining in a 4,5.5 or 8.52 mile walk in the fresh Wolds air starting at Market Rasen on Sunday, January 10. Events such as these are going on throughout the year as well as members of the public organising their own events

aid group that supports doctors and nurses in Russia and Romania with medical supplies and training, visited St Andrews and handed over a cheque for hospice funds. Rushlinc has been supporting

impoverished parts of Eastern Europe for the past 12 years where many aspects of daily life taken for granted in the West are either unavailable or unaffordable. Many doctors in some parts

of Russia and Romania have little more than stethoscopes to work with. Rushlinc has also funded a number of exchanges to Russia from the Grimsby and Louth areas and recently Jane Wen-

ham-White from St Andrew’s visited a hospice in St Petersburg. She said on her return that the differences between St Petersburg and Grimsby were very striking, but added that she was made very welcome by doctors and general staff over there. This week’s visit to the Grimsby Hospice by Rushlinc volunteers has further helped to cement the understanding between the various organisations here and in Eastern Europe. Greta Ross, the founder of Rushlinc, presents a cheque for £400 to St Andrew’s Hospice CEO Alison Carlisle. Also shown is the “Memorandum of Mutual Understanding”, recently signed in St Petersburg between St Andrew’s Hospice and Hospice Number 4

Local bishop was Chaplain to Queen BY VINCENT McDONAGH Reporter

Honeymoon in United States LAURA Gill and Jack Peggs tied the knot at Beaconthorpe Church before spending a honeymoon in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Hawaii. The couple, of Dugard Road, Cleethorpes, were transported from the church to the reception at 1 Kings Road in a 1930s style Beauford. Laura, who works for the Specialist Health Promotion Service, is the daughter of Jackie and Michael Gill. She wore a white A-line dress and was attended by bridesmaids Kennedy Clark, her niece, and Rebekah Cooney, Jack’s cousin. Jack works at SCS and is the son of Pat Casey-Evans. He, along with best man Frazer Downes, wore a black suit and silver waistcoat with a pink tie and handkerchief. The bride carried pink aqua roses, cream lizzyanthus and bouvardias down the aisle to a traditional wedding march, while the bridesmaids’ flowers were cerise gerberas.

THE Right Rev Eric Kemp, a leading Anglican Bishop, who died this week at the age of 94, came from Waltham, it has been disclosed. He was born and brought up in the village “in fairly humble circumstances” on April 27, 1915, said the Daily Telegraph this week, which accorded him the honour of a lengthy obituary. He also proudly described himself as a Lincolnshire “yellow belly”. In fact Bishop Kemp was one of two inhabitants of Waltham to hold such high office in the church – the previous one being Bishop John of Waltham in the 14th century. A former Chaplain to the Queen, he was a leading figure in the Anglo-Catholic wing of the Church of England and a firm opponent of the ordination of women which he once described as a “disastrous move”. Bishop Kemp was educated in Waltham and at Brigg Grammar School before going to Exeter College at Oxford to read modern history. He abandoned his original intention to become a lawyer to prepare for Holy Orders. One of his first appointments was in Southampton where he served as an air raid warden during heavy wartime bombing of the port. After holding several influential posts within the church, including Canon of Lincoln Cathedral, he was appointed Bishop of Chichester in 1974 where he stayed until his retirement in 2001.

Villagers enjoy fun ceilidh THE Marshchapel Arts November event was a ceilidh in the village hall last Saturday. To the accompaniment of the Pierrot band from Doncaster, some 50 intrepid Marshchapel residents learned new dances with the help of the band’s caller. The gyrations and gambollings were not without mishap, of course, but the level of participants’ enjoyment was clearly undiminished thereby. And whether good fortune prevailed or pride forbade disclosure the number of serious injuries sustained by toes and ankles was surprisingly small. Liquid refreshments abounded throughout the evening, and a light supper, skilfully prepared by master chef Mike Grubb to ensure no over-indulgence and consequent slacking on the dance floor, was served midway through the evening. Organiser Gill Preston declared herself well pleased with the occasion, proceeds from which will go towards the heating fund at St Mary’s Church. He developed a close working partnership with Cormac Murphy O’Connor, then Roman Catholic Bishop of Arundel and later Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. His opposition to women priests was based on the belief that their ordination was contrary to a long tradition and could only happen with the consent of the entire Christian Church. However, he also played an important role in moves towards Anglican and Methodist unity. Despite his strong Catholic leanings, he always insisted that nothing would drive him from the church of his baptism.

He was always proud of his Lincolnshire roots and, according to the Guardian newspaper this week, when one Archdeacon asked him if all Lincolnshire people were suspicious, he replied: “Only when they meet the outside world.” Bishop John Brown, who now living in retirement in Cleethorpes, said he met Bishop Kemp on a couple of occasions while serving in the Oxford diocese and found him to be a man with a very sharp mind. They also discussed their Grimsby area roots. Bishop Kemp leaves a wife, a son and four daughters.

20 Thursday, December 3, 2009, Cleethorpes Chronicle

of Cleethorpes

The pier in the 1920s. The wide carriage drive to the right gave access to the pier and the pier gardens - until Sea Road was widened in the 1930s and the pier was altered so it led straight off the promenade. Note the charabanc and the entrances to the underground public toilets near the centre of the picture. Photo courtesy of ‘Buster’ Hammond via Rob Chalmers.

The pier in 2003 showing the original 1873 sloping cast-iron columns with decorative arches, plus the later steel reinforcing vertical columns.

CCORDING to the Cleethorpes Chronicle and Visitors List of 1892, August Bank Holiday of that year saw Cleethorpes once more ready for the influx of trippers. Some had avoided the Monday morning pandemonium at the railway station by coming to the resort on Saturday for the weekend. Even with such planning, they had great difficulty in getting rooms. Did people really end up sleeping in baths? If you have ever done so, please let us know – did you take the coal out first? Anyhow, early Monday morning was all hustle and bustle in the resort as traders prepared for the day’s onslaught. In particular, ‘enormous provision’ was being made in order to refresh the ‘inner man’ (and woman?) of the visitors. The influx started at 8am as the trains began to steam in. Twenty-one ‘specials’ arrived, including seven from Sheffield, four from Leicester, three from Nottingham and others from Manchester, Chesterfield, Penistone, Northampton and Burton. Because of the demand, another six trains were laid on and an estimated 30,000 trippers favoured the resort with a visit during the day. Of course, the day started with typical Bank Holiday weather; dull in the morning with heavy


clouds threatening rain. Surprisingly, the sun came out in the afternoon – but don’t cheer too early because there was a cold wind – it’s not only Skegness that’s bracing. The tide was up in the morning so the boatmen did well, but the wind made it awkward for the sailing craft. The sea front was crowded all day and the coconut shies, Aunt Sallies, phrenologists, buskers and other attractions did well. The Pier Gardens featured entertainment by the Snow Brothers Minstrels and the Railway Servants Brass Band. The North Sea Exhibition and the Fish Hatchery were well patronised. The latter included two young seals and some American crabs which apparently are shaped like horse shoes – hopefully all of the crab experts amongst our readers will confirm this. Beach donkey rides were in demand – especially by girls. It was reported that ‘when there was a group of them riding together, they can raise a scream which would put the war whoops of Buffalo Bill’s ‘Injuns’ quite in the shade and make them turn green with envy’. So chaps, take comfort from the fact that Victorian females were just as raucous as the current ones. A number of pony riders got

into trouble for ‘furious riding.’ They should have learned from the case of the Nottingham man who a couple of weeks earlier had been fined for furiously riding a pony along Sea Road. After being hauled before the magistrates he was fined 15s 6d plus costs – a large proportion of a week’s wages in those days. Do you think we could say it taught him a bit of horse-sense? The Pier Concert Hall attracted large and enthusiastic audiences for its ‘smart’ entertainment, which included the ‘decidedly clever harpist Mr Charles Clifford’. However, I wonder whether the audiences realised that they were on a pier which, to use modern jargon, ‘was not fit for purpose’. The pier had been built by one of the leading pier contractors, Head Wrightson and Co of Stockton-on-Tees. It was completed in 1873 but only 17 years later, in 1890, concern was expressed on the need to carry out major repairs. Because of faulty construction, the timber ‘runners’ upon which the planking deck was laid retained moisture. Consequently, about one-third were decayed and needed to be replaced immediately. Also, the planking and main joists had only a brief life left in them. In addition, the ironwork throughout the pier was in a very loose state and needed to be thor-

oughly overhauled. Bolts needed to be screwed up tight, a number of tie rods needed to be renewed and some additional ones installed. This was bad enough, but worse was to come six years later. The pier’s supports consisted of cast-iron columns resting on piles. In 1896 they were found to be in need of additional support at a probable cost of £2,650. Accordingly, rolled steel girders were fitted under the pier to prevent any collapse. Take a look at the underside of the pier walkway (not the Pavilion) next time you’re down there. You’ll see the original slanting cast-iron columns on the outside, with their decorative arches. Plus the vertical rolled steel reinforcing columns inside, which are still doing a good job. So our 1892 Bank Holiday crowds were using the pier inbetween these two periods of major maintenance problems for the pier operator. Never mind, they all had a good time and the day ended happily. But is it only me that sees an uncanny coincidence in the fact that the Pier Concert Hall featured that ‘decidedly clever harpist Mr. Charles Clifford’ – was he also booked to give harp lessons up on those threatening rain clouds if the pier had collapsed? Just a thought.

Store had Red Cross branch

Above: The old hospital. Below members of Guy and Smith’s Red Cross.

FURTHER hospital memories have been provided by Memories reader Averil Smith of Great Coates, Grimsby. She provides a coloured photo of the hospital where she stayed for three weeks following an operation 33 years ago. She does not recall exactly when the hospital was demolished, but has some memories of her stay there. She said the wards were long and there were no curtains around each bed as in modern day hospitals. When privacy was required a screen on wheels was rolled down the ward and put around the bed in question. One contributor noted views from the hospital and Mrs Smith said this was probably over the Boulevard, toward the nurses’ home. She said the Boulevard was now the Duke of York Gardens. She said the wards were controlled by a matron when she was in there and things were different than today. “The wards were cleaned better and the beds were pulled out every day.” She said patients were only allowed one visitor and recalled there was no choice of meals, you simply got what was brought to you. Patients ate their meals at a table set in the middle of the ward. Mrs Smith said that with patients staying in hospital longer than today following operations, there was a bit of camaraderie, though there were sad times as well. She also provides a photo of Red Cross nurses from Guy and Smith’s shop which was where the House of Fraser is now in Victoria Street. Mrs Smith described Guy and Smith’s as a “beautiful old shop”. Her mother Maggie Gooseman worked as a dressmaker at the shop on one of the higher floors and had aired memories of seeing trams pass along Victoria Street. The shop made its own dresses. Her father was Ernest Rhodes who ran a coal merchant’s business.

Cleethorpes Chronicle, Thursday, December 3, 2009 27

Your stars with

Cassandra Nye

week commencing December 7 Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20) With many practical aspects dealt with, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to dream this week. Some are recurring and very pleasant, but it is hard to see how to get there. It is important to realise that timing is important. Although you are capable of moving a dream forward, it may not be the right time to implement it. Try to see your future as more expansive rather than focusing on one project or idea. Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21) With a strong intuition, you start the week with an uneasy feeling. Perhaps you sense that something or someone is going to be awkward. When tricky situations arise, it is usually possible to turn them around by using logic and charm. Few can resist this combination of your talents. A happy face, however, can disguise an uncomfortable situation for a short time. Look for solutions in unusual places, where a new approach works wonders. Gemini (May 22 - June 21) A happy relationship, for all that, still needs a tough decision this week. Taking on new responsibilities may not have been in your mind right now, but may be necessary. Gain co-operation from others, especially those involved, by being clear about your intentions. Someone is scared and needs lots of reassurance. Trusting your instinct and listening to your own FRXQVHOLVEHVW'RQ¡WEHSUHVVXUHGE\RXWVLGHLQĂ XHQFHV Cancer (June 22 - July 23) The week seems mapped out ahead of \RXDQGPD\DSSHDUSUHWW\WHGLRXV%HHĂ&#x20AC;QJXS\RXUVRFLDOOLIH           however, restores the balance. Spend time with someone who you have not seen for some time. Had you forgotten how supportive they could be? Be aware that this can work two ways. When someone listens to you, listen back. When someone gives you a helping hand, return the favour. Where you cannot mend, you will bring relief. Leo (July 24 - Aug 23) Is someone holding you back from realising a dream? Maybe they feel that the time is not right, but you are convinced that it is? Be realistic and, if you need their goodwill RUĂ&#x20AC;QDQFHKDYHSDWLHQFH7KDWGRHVQRWPHDQKRZHYHUWKDW\RX           should give the impression of having given up! Persevere and the rewards will eventually come. Perhaps someone needs proof of your enthusiasm? A breakthrough comes swiftly at the weekend. It is like a fog clearing. Virgo (Aug 24 - Sept 23) It seems to be a time full of questions, with very few answers coming to the fore. Sometimes there is a need to go over things to fully understand them. It is possible that \RXKDYHORVWWUXVWRUFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHLQVRPHRQHZKRLVDORQJWLPH            ally. Think hard about how this could have happened, and why. Just walking away from situations may seem the easiest way, but would you be content with that? That is not really your style is it, Virgo? Libra (Sept 24 - Oct 23) When you really want to see something done, you can be very determined, Libra. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t true that you expect everything to fall into your lap - far from it. What others see as an easy life sometimes demands a lot of discipline and GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWGHFLVLRQV7KLVLVRQHRIWKRVHZHHNVZKHQVPDOOWKLQJV           upset big plans. Keep communications open and happy, even when you feel that it is useless. It is not, as you will soon see. Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22) People can be most annoying right from the start of this week. Either they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be listening or, if they are, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to respond. What you feel like doing, however, may make matters worse. In such a busy and enterprising time, it is hard to have patience. Even so, that is what you need. Do your best to remain pleasant and practical. Nobody is out to upset you deliberately, although it may feel like it. Give a golden smile. Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21) Trust your instincts as this week EHJLQVDQGWU\WRDVVHVDGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWVLWXDWLRQ<RXQHHGWRKDYHD             plan by Wednesday, when those same instincts are more fogged. Look at what others need from you and why. Tackle problems from the root, not just skirting over the symptoms. To be honest, you will be a bit of a detective at the moment. Fathom out the reasons and you have the answer. Easy? No, but do your best as usual! &DSULFRUQ 'HF-DQ <RXKDYHDFKRLFHWKLVZHHNHLWKHU            ignore your feelings, or let them out. Of course, ignoring things wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make them go away. In fact, it could build up a lot of stress! Get it out and get it over with, would be my advice. Midweek starts to show you the way forward, and there is something important to learn at the weekend. But back to the beginning for DPRPHQW<RXDUHLQFRQWURO$VNTXHVWLRQVDQGJHWDQVZHUVDQG            soon power is in your hands. Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19) A peaceful start to the week is deceptive. Get routine matters done and meetings out of the way before Wednesday. After this you will be needed to take charge RIDFKDOOHQJLQJSHUVRQRUVLWXDWLRQ<RXVKRXOGEHIXOORIHQHUJ\            and ready for any eventuality. Even so, use charm rather than a brusque approach whenever possible. Others will have gone down this road before you, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to ask their advice and opinion. It makes such a difference to stress levels! Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20) It is a time of dreaming and wanting things to happen in an ideal way. Sometimes they do, sometimes WKH\GRQ¡W<RXZRQ¡WEHGLVDSSRLQWHGLIWKLVZHHN\RXNHHS H[SHFWDWLRQVOHYHO<RXKDYHDORWRIHQHUJ\DQGHQWKXVLDVPEXW           by directing this in the wrong area it can be wasted.

Anxious moments for Cameron Diaz and James Marsden.

Delectable Diazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dire dilemma IN our high-tech age, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes easy to forget the consequences of our choices when everything is available at the click of a mouse or the touch of a keyboard. The Box is a cautionary tale, adapted from the short story Button, Button by Richard Matheson, about a family living in 1970s suburban America who are faced with a terrible moral dilemma. The repercussions of an apparently simple decision only become clear once the choice is made, by which time it is too late to backtrack on a life-altering proposition. Norma Lewis (Diaz) and her husband Arthur (Marsden) are woken early one morning by the chimes of their doorbell. Opening the front door, Norma discovers a brown paper-wrapped parcel: inside is a wooden box housing a bright red button and a note bearing the instructions: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr Steward will call upon you at 5pm.â&#x20AC;? Sure enough, at the agreed time, when only Norma is home, the horribly disfigured Arlington Steward (Langella) makes his entrance and sets out a tantalising proposition. If the Lewises push the red button in the next 24 hours, someone they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know will die and they will collect one million dollars.

Title: The Box Starring: Cameron Diaz, James Marsden. Frank Langella, Sam Oz Stone Cert: 12A Length: 115 mins Rating: 6/10 If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t push the red button, the box will be taken away and they get nothing. While school teacher Norma and NASA engineer Arthur agonise over their decision, fate deals them both cruel blows. With the clock ticking and their cosy existence suddenly in jeopardy, they must think hard about Stewardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horrifying proposal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not only for themselves, but also for their 13-year-old son Walter (Oz Stone), who is understandably curious about the parcel.

The writer-director leaves some plot threads hanging and resolves others, asking us to swallow each outlandish twist and turn as Norma and Arthur try to wriggle off Stewardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hook.

WI recipe

Branch out and plant a tree soon AS this is National Tree Week, I thought I would be able to encourage you to plant a tree within your garden or fund the planting of a tree locally. National Tree Week is the UK’s largest tree celebration annually, launching the start of the winter tree planting season. Trees play a large part in our landscape, contributing with their various colours, shapes and sizes, some evergreen, others deciduous. Deciduous species can look magnificent no matter the season, whether clothed in leaves or when naked, silhouetting against the winter sky. I sincerely hope that there will always be enough people out there who realise the importance and value of trees within our environment, not just for today but for future generations. Our trees in simple terms

act as the lungs for our towns and cities. Described as the manufacturing centre, their leaves take the carbon dioxide from the air they breathe and convert it into oxygen which is essential for life. Trees can be planted for a wide range of reasons as well as the fact they clean our atmosphere, which we tend to take for granted. They can provide us with natural shade, a vast selection of fruit, wood for building and fencing materials, flower and leaf colour, not to mention all of the resins and gums which have been extracted from them for medicines and dyes over the centuries. Trees are planted within the environment for a wide range of reasons. Pines are planted to stabilise our coastal dunes; poplars form natural screens and windbreaks around industrial sites.

THE Cleethorpes Chronicle gardening correspondent, Alan Fletcher, parks and open spaces manager at North East Lincolnshire Council, informs us that we are now in National Tree Week and highlights how vital trees are to our landscape and wellbeing. Alder and willows are widely planted in areas that are prone to flooding. What would our towns’ avenues look like in the absence of trees? It has taken us years to get over the ravages of Dutch elm disease which

killed hundreds of our elm trees locally in the 1970s and 1980s. The trees I have been involved with the planting of since that time are now providing all year round benefits. Haverstoe Park, Country

Leftovers can be scrumptious WEELSBY WI member Jane Wilson provides this week’s delicious recipe, in association with the local WI groups.

Park and the Taylor’s Avenue estate are now well established. There is a large choice of trees available which are suitable for planting within an average sized garden. Here are some examples: Amelanchier Canadensis – flower/autumn leaf colour Betulus Pendula Dalecarlica – graceful/beautiful bark Cotoneaster Cornubia – semi evergreen/red berries Malus John Downie – beautiful red/yellow fruit Prunus Subhirtella Autumualis – autumn colour/ white flowers Pyrus Chanticleer – semi evergreen /conicle Sorbus Cashmiriana – autumn leaf / white berry Chamaecyparis Ellwoods Gold – golden evergreen If your garden is not big enough to accommodate a tree, look at the wide range of shrubs available which could help towards the environmental issues we are faced with.

American flying visitor became major celebrity BY CHRIS HEATON Reporter

THRUSHES are familiar birds to a lot of people and most need no introduction. Blackbirds and song thrushes are commonly seen in gardens, in spite of a drastic reduction in numbers. There are two other members of the thrush family breeding in Britain – mistle thrush and ring ouzel, with the latter only being a summer visitor staying with us to breed and then leaving for warmer climes. Winter is perfect to observe and look for thrushes, as this is the time when our thrushes are joined by thousands of winter visitors, namely redwings and fieldfares. These birds are commonly seen along hedgerows, fields and even gardens as they feast on berries and other fruits that are abundant in most winters. It is not unusual to see mixed flocks of hundreds of thrushes roving around our countryside. Winter is also a great time to find something a little rare mixed in with these flocks. These rarities can occur anywhere and be found by anyone. As winter progresses and food supplies become harder to






Many thanks to Colin Smale for this photograph of the much celebrated American robin. find, thrushes will turn to urban areas and feed on berries in peoples gardens. I have seen two black-throated thrushes feeding on berries in urban gardens with other thrushes. These birds become almost tame and will allow close approach. Other rare thrushes that have turned up in winters gone by include eye-

browed, dusky, naumanns, Siberian and American robin. American robin is, as its name suggests, an American species, whereas all the other species named above are Asian. One would expect to find an Asian thrush near the Lincolnshire shoreline because of our east coast situation. What is per-

haps even more astounding in a county as large as ours, is that there has only ever been one confirmed and much admired rare thrush – an American robin. This bird was discovered by birdwatchers looking for waxwings, which had been present for sometime in the Great Coates area on January 1, 2004, and stayed loyal to its chosen site for the next three months and was seen every day by a never ending stream of admirers. The American robin became a celebrity until finally being taken by a sparrowhawk. What a sad end to a rare bird which brought so much pleasure to so many. The mere fact that this rarity was found on an industrial estate illustrates how rare birds can and do turn up anywhere. We want to hear your stories, sightings and see your photographs. You can submit your sightings by emailing to or by texting 07753 322392. You can send your letters to Chris Heaton at the Cleethorpes, Chronicle, 6 Short Street, Cleethorpes, DN35 8LZ.

The artwork on display showcases the work of Artlandish artists and their friends in a colourful display of abstract and figurative art. The company is leasing the building from North East Lincolnshire Council and is looking forward to inviting residents and tourists into the attraction.. Artlandish Chairman Stephen Brown said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Board of Trustees of Artlandish sees the move to the Discovery Centre as a fantastic opportunity to further promote the aims and objectives of the charity through the delivery of creative art projects to all

sectors of the community of North East Lincolnshire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Discovery Centre move is also important to our artists allowing them to showcase, promote and sell their work within a new gallery area.â&#x20AC;? He continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Artlandish now operates from a really high quality building in a first class location and the Artlandish and Friends exhibition marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the charity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that the residents of North East Lincolnshire and visitors to the area take the time to look around the exhibition and see for themselves the really wonderful work produced by our artists.â&#x20AC;? Cllr Steve Hocknell, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and healthier communities, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very happy that Artlandish has settled into its new surroundings and is opening with such a fantastic exhibition.

Cleethorpes Chronicle, Thursday, December 3, 2009 33

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Battling lionessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event CHRISTINE Hamilton is this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest speaker at the annual Gentlemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dinner hosted by Grimsby 70 Round Table. The event will be held at Humberstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beachcomber on Tuesday (8) at 7.30pm. It marks 75 years of Grimsby 70 (founded in 1934). Round Table members from England and Europe will be celebrating this anniversary, along with guests from the business community and representatives of the local charities that GY70 supports. GY70 Vice Chairman Mark Anglin said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking forward to an entertaining and interesting evening, but some of us are a bit scared!â&#x20AC;?

Christine Hamilton is one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most charismatic and colourful personalities. She enlivens proceedings with her charm and humour, whether talking about feisty women, or lifting the veil on the world of Westminster. She has been described by some as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the battling lionessâ&#x20AC;? and more recently has gone from â&#x20AC;&#x153;battleaxe to national treasureâ&#x20AC;?. She has emerged triumphant in the face of scandal and controversy. GY70 Chairman David Whittock said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Christine Hamilton is a battleaxe or a pussycat, but all those brave enough to attend will find out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do know that from her televi-

sion appearances she is always quickwitted, engaging and has a great sense of humour.â&#x20AC;?

Time to remember lost loved ones A SPECIAL carol service in celebration of the lives of departed loved ones is to be held in Cleethorpes. It will take place at Corpus Christi Church, Grimsby Road (corner of Machray Place), at 4pm on Sunday, December 13. The service will be led

by Fr James Earley. The service is not confin fi ned to members of the church, but for anybody who misses their departed relatives and friends. There will be no collections and no obligations for the future. All you need to take

along is your voice to sing the carols. On going into the church each person will be invited to light a candle and place it on the altar. These will remain lit throughout the service. There will be a short time for quiet refl fleection

towards the end of the service. The church has a good sized car park. Everyone attending is invited to chat over tea/coffee and mince pies in the community centre next to the church after the service.

The formidable Christine Hamilton.

Eyes down for new machine A NEW bingo machine was presented to Mike Thompson of The Elms, Humberston by Lions’ President Sheena Wilkinson at North East Lincolnshire Lions’ Club. The bingo machine, which will be used at the residential home for bingo sessions, cost around £150 and is provided from the Lions’ charity fund, fed by money raised through a variety of activities. The Lions run a monthly prize bingo at Stallingborough Village Hall, with £55 raised at a recent session earmarked for the Cleethorpes-based RNLI and Inshore Rescue which is the club’s main charity for its Christmas draw this year.

THE annual switch-on of the Market Place Christmas lights was watched by a good crowd of villagers despite the cold and wet weather. The Kingsway Printers Band entertained the visitors with Christmas tunes by the tree and three pupils from Tetney Primary School took their places next to the decorated switch. Antonia Smith (five), of Willow class, Mollie Smye (seven,) of Oak class and Charlotte Brydon (nine), of Cedar class, were chosen by the parish clerk, Susan Booth and Cllr Yvonne Fletcher after all the children had designed their own Christmas stocking. Catherine Hughes (10), of Beech class, was also chosen as a prizewinner but was unable to attend the ceremony. They all received gift vouchers for their hard work. After a short introduction from Cllr Fletcher, informing the resi-

dents about the new lights that have been installed, a countdown was sounded and the tree lit to cheers from the onlookers. The villagers then moved across to the village hall, where a dozen stalls run by village groups and organisations greeted them and offered many lovely items for sale, to eat or be won. Father Christmas arrived and a line of eager children queued to meet him. The Kingsway Printers band continued their performance to a packed hall and the Christmas atmosphere was most enjoyable. Pupils raise pounds for Pudsey AFTER attending school in fancy dress or non-uniform and selling home-made cakes at lunchtime, the pupils of Tetney Primary raised £125.40 for the Children In Need appeal. Thanks to all who made this possible, to help this good cause.

Mollie Smye, Charlotte Brydon and Antonia Smith turn on the Christmas lights in Tetney.

Grand gestures to village groups

Cheques are received by Doreen Pinder (Pop In), Andrew Jacklin (Grainthorpe and Conisholme Village Association), Mary-Anne Drinkel (St Clement’s Church), Philippa Lidstone-Scott (Welcome Club) Mike Crombie, chairman of Grainthorpe Festival of Arts, Freda Oliver (Methodist Chapel), Neil Pridgeon (Grainthorpe Cricket Club) Maureen Hutchinson (Pop Out) Gavin Wray (under 10 football team) Simon Lovatt (Grainthorpe football team), and Chris Brady (Grainthorpe School).

GRAINTHORPE Festival of Arts held a presentation evening when £5,400 was distributed to village organisations. £2,000 was donated to St Clement’s Church in Grainthorpe and Grainthorpe and Conisholme Village Association. Other beneficiaries were Grainthorpe School, the Methodist Chapel, Welcome Club, Pop In and Pop Out, the football and cricket clubs and a newly-formed under 10 football club. The festival, held on August Bank Holiday weekend, was a resounding success with nearly 1,000 visitors. There were 463 paintings, china, glass, wood and jewellery on display in the church and 20 craft tables in the village hall and marquee displaying various crafts including cards, cakes, to a ride on a wooden toy. Some 52 pictures, 25 unframed works and 25 pieces of craftwork on display in the church were sold, with a value of £4,560. There was something for everyone to enjoy including St Clement’s café which

provided excellent bacon rolls and homebaked cakes. The committee thank all the volunteers from the village who made the whole event possible. The Wragholme Art Trophy was presented to Grainthorpe School pupil Aaron Patchett with his painting called Mighty Tree. Peter Lidstone-Scott’s painting called Turbines Beyond was highly commended. For the second year the winner of the T Marris Trophy for the best collection of work went to Anne Harrison’s Embroidery and Water Colour. Anne received 66 out of the 500 votes; Colin Smales’ photography was second. Other prize winners were Knightshade by Toni-Marie Hudson, Bowled Over by Anne Harris, Serenity by Evelyn Farquharson and Innocence by Sue Riemer. For more information go to

s r o t o M Economical and eco-friendly

Cleethorpes Chronicle, Thursday, December 3, 2009 35



t is no exaggeration to say that the cee'd has transformed the way UK car-buyers think about Kia. More than 17,000 British customers have already been won over by Kia's Europeanmade, European-designed five-door hatchback with its modern styling, superb quality, outstanding dynamics, low buying and operating costs and unique-in-Europe sevenyear, 100,000-mile warranty. Now those qualities have been made even more irresistible. A fresh new exterior look brings the cee'd into line with the family face first seen on Soul, Kia's unique urbanrunabout-with-SUV-attitude. The interior has been upgraded with plush new trim materials that create the look and feel of a far more expensive car, and there is more standard equipment. The revised cee'd introduces EcoDynamics, Kia's new green umbrella for a range of fuel-saving, emissions-reducing technologies. In time it will be expanded to include alternative-fuel vehicles – hybrids, electric cars and even fuel-cells – but ini-

The ECO Dynamics logo. tially, EcoDynamics is focusing on reducing the environmental impact of cars powered by traditional internal combustion engines. Kia has developed an Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) system for the cee'd EcoDynamics. This turns off the engine when the car is stationary in traffic and the driver puts the gearlever into neutral and takes his or her foot off the clutch pedal. The engine restarts immediately as soon as the clutch pedal is partially pushed. Because of the way UK vehicle excise duty bands are structured, ISG will initially be available only with the standard (89bhp) 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine. It gives Kia a

model to target at fleets and business users who can derive maximum tax advantage from the fuel economy and CO2 improvements it bestows. With the ISG system, CO2 emissions of the cee'd 1.6-litre CRDi fall from 119g/km to 110g/km – sufficient to allow companies to claim a 100 per cent company car tax write-down in the first year of operation – while average fuel economy is a highly impressive 67.3mpg. Business drivers will continue to enjoy a 13 per cent rate of benefit-in-kind tax liability – five per cent lower than with the majority of rivals. Some of the features found on the cee'd 2 EcoDynamics are also fitted to other models in the range, and they help to reduce fuel consumption by an average of five per cent. A six-speed gearbox becomes standard on all manual diesel variants, replacing the old five-speed transmission, as a further aid to improving economy and emissions. A gearshift indicator will become standard across the range from late 2009 to advise drivers on the

most fuel-efficient points to change up or down. Kia will also fit cee'd petrolengined models with a new kick-down switch on the accelerator later in 2009 to prevent unintentional full-throttle use. A small resistance, felt through the accelerator pedal, helps drivers recognise fullthrottle condition and thereby cuts down on excessive fuel consumption. The new three-tier line-up will be badged cee’d 1, cee’d 2 and cee’d 3, with the superefficient 2 EcoDynamics model equating to cee’d 2 but for one or two equipment differences. All three grades continue to deliver the outstanding value for money for which Kia is renowned. New on the revised cee’d is the sporty-looking four-spoke steering wheel with more slender cross-bars at the three o’clock and nine o’clock positions and a smart twinbar support at the bottom. The spokes house remote audio and trip computer controls, plus Bluetooth on cee’d 2 EcoDynamics and cee’d 3, with cruise control on cee’d 3. The wheel-mounted switches

are new, and work on the smoother-operating see-saw principle. Cee’d benefits from a new Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) programme which has improved the electronic communications between the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and the electronic power steering (known as Motor Driven Power Steering or MDPS). Another new introduction is Hill-start Assist Control (HAC). (VSM/ESC and HAC are standard on 3 and op-

tional on all other grades). ESC detects potential loss of grip from either the front or rear and returns the car to a safe course by braking a wheel, reducing engine power or both. Meanwhile VSM reduces the degree of steering assistance if the driver applies too much lock that could cause under –or over steer, and increases the assistance when he or she counter-steers to correct potential skid. In this way, the driver can tell by the steering feel whether he

The new Kia Cee’d. or she is taking the right course of action to stabilise the car. Every cee’d continues to enjoy the seven-year or 100,000-mile bumper-tobumper warranty that remains unique to cars made at Kia's Zilina factory in Slovakia. It is transferable to subsequent owners; a major selling point for anyone trading in the car before the warranty period has expired. Prices of the revised cee'd start at £11,895.

Mould-breaking economy model 36 Thursday, December 3, 2009, Cleethorpes Chronicle


LIKE any industry, the motoring world has its own generally accepted practices. The difference with the motoring industry is that when a member opts to think outside the box and challenge convention a rebuke rarely follows. If the idea proves to be any good it’s quickly accepted through the sincerest form of flattery; imitation. Until fairly recently, generally accepted practice dictated that economy focussed vehicles were spartan affairs. Even in the present climate, with fuel consumption alarm bells ringing in the head offices of even the most sportsfocussed brands, luxuries such as air-conditioning and rear electric windows are still the first to face the chop in the name of fuel economy. Enter the Volvo S80 DRIVe. Large, luxurious and boasting combined fuel consumption of 57.7mpg and emitting a mere 129g/km CO2 it’s something of a mould breaker. Compare its eco-credentials to the sterling efforts of its closest competitors and it’s the class leader by some margin. It’s also the only Esegment model currently under the 130g/km barrier. Of course, you’re probably thinking for a manufacturer to produce a large, luxurious model that doesn’t cost the earth either literally or figuratively speaking, something has to give. And you’d be right. The reason Volvo has managed to steal the march on its premium saloon competitors is by going where the others have feared to tread. Although nearly five metres long, more than two metres wide and weighing 1.5 tonnes, the S80 DRIVe model uses a humble 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine with a modest

107bhp. As a result, performance is not earth shattering, but Volvo is the first manufacturer to show the strength of its convictions that even large premium car drivers will sacrifice performance for economy if the package is good enough. It's a gamble, but not as big a gamble as you might think. Firstly, although performance is humble, the S80 DRIVe does not place the driver in a position where economy has to be sacrificed to access it. Peak torque is at 1750rpm, meaning much of the engine’s pulling power can be found without having to push too hard. Secondly, although the S80 DRIVe performance suffers compared to more powerful variants in the range, it’s still not a drastically slow car. Boasting 15 per cent better fuel consumption than the 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel model, it’s only 1.3 seconds slower to 62mph and has a top speed just six mph short and still well beyond 100mph. Volvo of course, is better positioned than many of its premium rivals to pull off a small engine, large car combination. Quality, safety, practicality and, more recently, style have traditionally been given greater importance than sportiness by both the manufacturer and its customers. Those values remain a high priority. Unlike the V70 DRIVe estate variant, few external changes have been required to squeeze the most out of the S80 DRIVe meaning it remains largely unchanged from the face-lifted version only recently unveiled. Unlike the V70 it can still use smart 17-inch alloys despite its low rolling resistance tyres and hasn’t required a change to the front grille design. The S80 sits slightly lower (20mm at the front and 15mm at the rear) but the

The Volvo S80 1.6D

rest of the changes are out of sight. An electric power steering system reduces strain on the engine, engine management software is tailored specifically for greater efficiency and the final three gears in the five-speed manual transmission are longer. The resulting package is one that’s easy on the eye and requires no change of approach to milk the economy. With a normal ratio first and second gear the S80 DRIVe operates as normal around town. On the open road the long ratio’s come into their own, keeping revs low and refinement high. The steering feel is unaltered, despite the change of system. Never a car for a particularly


spirited approach, the S80’s steering is weighted on the light side for a relaxed feel. Ride quality is superb despite the lowered suspension, no doubt aided by the lighter engine. Most importantly, those impressive stated fuel economy figures are easily within reach. Over a long journey, the model sips from the large tank with almost unbelievable restraint. In SE Premium specification, top of the line for the S80 DRIVe, equipment levels are strong. Leather and sat-nav are standard and the sculpted, highly ergonomic interior is a truly pleasant place to be. Additional equipment such as parking sensors and Bluetooth will need to be selected from the options list, but the

S80 DRIVe remains a high value proposition. Whether the Volvo S80 1.6D DRIVe will spark a trend for small engined large cars remains to be seen yet, if not, Volvo are sitting pretty with a niche but impressive model.

Ford prices rise CAR giant Ford is to increase prices by 2.7 per cent, blaming the rise on the continued weakness of the pound, it has been announced. Nigel Sharp, managing director of Ford of Britain, said: “To combat the continuing weakness of the pound against the euro, Ford has reduced costs across its entire UK business, including personnel reductions in its central operation and across its dealer network. “However, price increases are still required to maintain a viable business and to recover relative cost increases caused by the weakness of the pound over an extended period.” Ford said the drop in the

value of the pound was a “fundamental concern” for all UKbased businesses whose costs were incurred in Euros. “While smaller capacity Ford engines and the Ford Transit commercial vehicle are assembled in Britain, other vehicles and component parts are imported from the Continent, which brings a significant cost penalty as a result of the exchange rate,” said Ford. Prices for Ford vehicles will rise by an average 2.7 per cent, meaning an extra £250£500 on the most popular models – Ka, Fiesta, Focus, CMax, Kuga and Mondeo – rising to £600 on a Ford S-Max and Galaxy.

42 Thursday, December 3, 2009, Cleethorpes Chronicle

There were positives, but we so want a goal WELL here are a couple of pieces of information for you. Town have now not scored in the last four games. And the last time they scored a league goal in open play – if you discount the one that the Burton keeper hit against Chris Jones’ backside – was 10 matches ago, back in September. On the evidence of this game it could be some time before they get another one. They created chances, hit the woodwork twice and saw the Macclesfield keeper pull off a couple of good saves.

Macclesfield 0 Town 0

BBC Radio Humberside’s John Tondeur gives his verdict on the Mariners’ visit to Macclesfield.

They even had a goal disallowed. But they just can’t stick the thing in the net. Luckily for the Mariners, Macclesfield

were just as bad in front of goal – or possibly even worse. They missed a couple of real sitters. Town also had a slice of luck when Nick Colgan appeared to save a shot behind the goal line rather than in front of it. But there were positives to this performance. New striker Ben Wright looked useful until tiring towards the end and Michael Coulson had an excellent game on the left of midfield. There was another solid display too from Olly Lancashire at the back. The central midfield though struggled

again to get a grip of the game and Michael Leary was very lucky to stay on the pitch after a two-footed challenge that put Macclesfield’s Lee Bell – their best player –out of the game. Why was Paul Bolland allowed to leave to warm the Macclesfield bench? So after a trio of satisfactory away displays, now Neil Woods and his side have to show they can do the business where it matters – in front of the home fans at Blundell Park. Oh …and a goal would be so nice!

Birkett strike paves way for fine victory GRIMSBY District Schools under 14s returned to winning ways with an impressive performance against Leeds. Grimsby made two changes at Humberston School from their defeat at Nottingham. Ryan Birkett was installed into the attack and Olly Kauss was given his district debut. The home team started brightly and it was no surprise when, after only six minutes, they opened the scoring. A Liam Harries shot was blocked inside the area with the rebound falling kindly to Birkett, who drove the ball home from 10 yards. This was Birkett’s first goal at this level and it was just the start Grimsby wanted. Further chances fell to Josh Garner twice and Birkett again as Grimsby tried to double their lead. Leeds came more into the game but their strikers were comfortably con-

Ryan Birkett. tained by the excellent duo of Walker and Stockley in the heart of the Grimsby defence. Skipper Wressell and Alex Garner pulled the strings in midfield as Grimsby turned in one of their best first half performances of the season. The second half started

with Leeds pressing Grimsby back but, with ’keeper Rothenburg in fine form, most of their attacks came to nothing. With 12 minutes remaining, Leeds were level. Rothenburg’s save led to the ball being whipped back into the penalty box for a Leeds striker to score at close range. Grimsby refused to lie down and, with five minutes remaining, they were back in front. A Harries free kick was floated into the box for Alex Garner to outjump everyone and head home the winning goal. Grimsby: Rothenburg (Tollbar), Colvin (Tollbar), Walker (Wintringham), Stockley (Healing), Rex (Lindsey), Kauss (Healing), Wressell (Tollbar), A Garner (Tollbar), Harries (Tollbar), J Garner (Lindsey), Birkett (Healing). Subs: Smith (Immingham), Chaplin (Matthew), Norris (Lindsey), Fell (Humberston).

Sophie shines as girls polish football skills Clee Town u10 Girls 2 Bottesford u10 Girls 1

AFTER a rain-soaked start, Clee Town under 10 girls began determinedly at home to Bottesford. Clee pressed hard with some good passing from Louise Aldrich and Sophie Daniels trying to get the ball to striker Franchesca Bower. A couple of half chances came but went adrift. Bottesford came back to an extent but Molly Catmull cleared almost any danger in defence. Abbie Smith in goal made a superb save and followed it with a strong kick out to Rhiannon Wright, who threaded it down the centre to Aldrich. She took on the Bottesford defenders to cross a diagonal ball to Daniels for a clearcut finish, putting Clee 1-0 up. Throughout the rest of the first half Clee had most of the possession and again Catmull,Wright and Smith made sure there was no threat to their goal.

Just before the interval another good kick out from Smith reached Wright who played it across to Catmull. She centred to Aldrich who wasn’t selfish and passed the ball beautifully to Daniels to finish a clear strike making it 2-0 to Clee. Aldrich went in goal after the interval, bringing Smith out and new striker Ebany Newby came on. Again Clee pressed hard, moving the ball around,with some nice passing and quality moves,with Newby coming close a couple of times. Bottesford tried hard in a couple of attacks and showed their solidarity when they never gave up and pulled a goal back to make it 2-1. This made Clee make a couple of changes to bring Aldrich back out and put Wright in goal to finish the match. Clee achieved a few more good runs and had more shots go wide and hit the bar. Both teams deserve credit for playing in terrible conditions but with great attitudes. Player of the match was Sophie Daniels.

Grace Lister and Alex Thompson with their most promising newcomer awards with chief coach Dan Higgon.

Great night for swimmers CLEETHORPES and District Swimming celebrated their members’ achievements for the year at the presentation evening. CADS’ chairman Mike Hart welcomed everyone to the annual event held at Lucarly’s. He said: “Whilst these trophies are presented to only a small number of our swimmers on their excellent individual achievements, we should not forget without all our swimmers the club would not exist. It takes more than one swimmer to make a team and this team would not be here without the support and help given by all our poolside volunteers, who freely give up their time to teach and coach our swimmers. I don’t want to name them individually, for fear of missing someone out. I feel we all owe them a debt of gratitude Chief coach Dan Higgon congratulated the swimmers on their achievements and presented them with their awards.

Joff bright spot in loss CLEETHORPES made the long trip to thirdplaced East Leake looking for that elusive win to steer their season back on track. After playing the top three teams in the league in consecutive weeks, they knew they were in for another bruising and tough encounter. Injuries and unavailability meant Clee were forced to travel with only 15, but this did not dishearten them and they took to the field raring to go. The Meggies lined up with Jackson, Fanthorpe and Cappindale in the front row, supported by Kempthorne and Hyde in the second row. The back row was made up of Stark, Ward and John Neve. Pete Southwell returned to scrum half; outside him was Steve Broderick at fly half, Steve Gibson and Adam Goodwin in the centres, with the back three lining up as Maddison, Joff Grant and Andy Stevenson. East Leake kicked off and Clee immediately took the game to them. Several quick phases of forward play got the ball to Broderick, who kicked downfield for the lineout. They knew this was the way the game had to be played for Cleethorpes to have a hope of winning. For the next 20 minutes, this was to be the order of play, until one superb kick by Broderick was chased by the offside Stark. Failing to hear the referee’s calls, he failed to retreat, resulting in a penalty against him. With the Clee defence at sixes and sevens, the quick tap was taken, and for the first time that afternoon, Leake’s backs showed their pace to score in the corner. Unconverted, the score stood at 5-0. This score didn’t dishearten Clee, and they attacked Leake immediately in the way they had been doing for the first 20 minutes.

East Leake RFU 46pts Cleethorpes RFU 0pts In one particular piece of good play, the ball found its way out to Hyde, who was lurking with intent on the wing. Bouncing his would-be tackler, he popped to the oncoming Fanthorpe, who scored in the corner, only for the touch judge to harshly give a lineout to East Leake for Hyde being in touch. Clee went into half time 5-0 down. Cleethorpes came out for the second half with a belief that the match was there to be won. Sean Ward, who had an outstanding first half, started as he left off, taking the game straight to Leake. The second half did not go as planned. An early try scored by Leake’s rapid winger took the game to 10-0, and this seemed to set a precedent. Cleethorpes were a shadow of the team they were in the first half, and try after try was the consequence. The score would have been a lot more but for the superb tackling of Joff Grant at full back. Although the lineout was still working well, the scrum seemed to lose the power it had been exerting in the first half. Even with this, Cleethorpes still won nearly all of their set plays all afternoon. With Clee’s heads down, the final whistle sounded, leaving the score at a sorry 46-0. This week sees Cleethorpes entertain East Retford at Lucarly’s. 2.15 kick-off, all supporters welcome. Training Thursday night, 6.30pm prompt start.

Carla triumphs despite gales

Cleethorpes Chronicle, Thursday, December 3, 2009 43

Hard-working Clee back on win trail CLEE 2nds returned to winning ways against Market Rasen with a hard fought victory against valiant opposition. Cleethorpes opened the scoring after a phase of concerted forward play saw Tom Keeley charge over from the edge of the 22-metre line; the try went unconverted. From the restart Cleethorpes attacked again and, after good interplay between backs and forwards, new Cleethorpes winger Rob Beeken caught his only ball of the match to score. This put Clee 10-0 up and it was from this point Market Rasen could have rolled over and given up, but they dug in to make life very difficult for the Meggies. It was late on in the half that a

Bailey shows way foward GRIMSBY under 10s travelled to East Retford on probably the wettest day of the year and came away with a well deserved first win of the season. Despite the conditions the match was played enthusiastically and the handling by both teams was excellent. Early on, Grimsby were drawn into a ruck and Retford, spotting the space out wide, passed the ball down the line for the first score of the day. Grimsby’s scrum of Alfie Wallis, Luke Phillips and Jordan Croft played well in both the scrum and loose. From a scrum close to the Retford line scrum half Bailey Dyas picked up and drove over the line for Grimsby’s first try of the day.

Three Clubs and a Putter competition winner Carla Clyburn with Lady Captain Shirley Grant .

THE Senior Gentlemen’s November Stableford was poorly supported by only 19 players, perhaps because of the poor weather. However, those who did participate came home with some excellent scores. In Division One Frank Barrett took first place on a countback from Alec Else; Division Two was won by Iain Sutherland, closely followed by Mike Hollingsworth in second place. The ladies encountered gales for their Three Clubs and a Putter Stableford competition, which made a difficult game even more tricky. The scores demonstrated the ferocity of the wind with only 30 Stableford points off full handicap, scored by the winner, Carla Clyburn. Joan Wilkinson managed a magnificent 28 points to take second place, while Gill Kapka took third place from Janet Todd with 27 points. Everyone was delighted for the shelter of the clubhouse afterwards.

Golf lesson with Paul Davies, Cleethorpes Golf Club 1

THIS week we see one of Rob’s pupils, George Robinson working on the role of the right arm from address to assist the correct position at the top of the backswing. Picture one shows George has a tendancy for his right arm to dominate over the top of the left, creating a dropped left shoulder and weak look, also shown in picture two. Look how this affects his ability to get the club into a strong position at the top of

the backswing, as shown in picture three, indeed making the club point the wrong way (we call this position laid off.) Rob has worked on his right elbow bending into his right hip more, as shown in picture four. This strengthens his shoulder line and will enable George to create a more dynamic turn and club position at the top of the backswing. Have a great week from Rob and Paul.

Retford responded positively and, despite excellent defence from Sam Skelton and Jamie Draper, Grimsby were unable to stop them from scoring again. Grimsby attacked with renewed vigour and were unlucky not to score when Alfie Wallis crossed the line but the try was disallowed for a knock on in the tackle. Grimsby continued to press and again went close when Jamie Draper was adjudged to have made a double movement and the try was disallowed. Grimsby continued to attack and, from one of these attacks, Grimsby scored an excellent team try. Rebecca Key picked up the ball in her own half and charged at the Retford defence. The Grimsby forwards recycled the ball well and fed it to Matthew Ross who passed to Bailey Dyas to score his second and end the half 10-10. Retford took the game to Grimsby in the second half and only good defence from the Blues kept them out, with Abi Watson and Rebecca Key tackling well in the centres. Grimsby fought well in the loose turning over some good ball in the rucks with Luke Phillips particularly effective. This ball allowed Grimsby to settle into a good pattern and they started to attack Retford at every opportunity, scoring the first of three tries when Connor James took a ball from a ruck and drove over the line to score in the corner. Matthew Ross, who had an excellent game in attack and defence, deserved his score when he received a ball out wide and passed two defenders to score in the opposite corner. The last score came from Jamie Draper who, after some good work from the forwards, picked up the ball close to the line and keeping low forced his way past the Retford defence to secure a deserved victory for the young Blues.

Focus on vital backswing


fitness told and they camped in the Rasen 22. From a scrum Micky Burton moved from openside to number eight and picked up to power over. Alan Galyer converted. From the restart Clee pushed upfield and, from a maul, Gary Jackson peeled off and finished the scoring. The scoreline flattered the away side with more points available to the home team but greed among the midfield backs prevented killer blows being delivered. Special mention to man of the match Ian Heron, one of the unsung heroes of the tight five who kept winning ball only to see it squandered by his extravagant back line.

Cut down Daggers to end goal drought BY NIGEL LOWTHER Editor

GRIMSBY Town’s players need to break their goal drought before it becomes an issue, manager Neil Woods has warned. The Mariners take on fourth-placed Dagenham and Redbridge at Blundell Park on Saturday, hoping to score their first league goal since the 2-2 home draw against Accrington Stanley on October 30, five games ago.

Woods, who watched his side miss several clear cut chances in the 0-0 draw at Moss Rose, Macclesfield, last weekend, says his side are improving. “It is a very thin line between scoring and not scoring,” he said. “The players know they are getting better and the performances are better. “On Saturday, I felt if we had scored one we could have had two or three. “We just need to break that duck and stop it becoming an issue. “The players are not obsessed with not scoring. If they are, then it does become an issue. But it would be nice to score that first goal, rather than have to come from behind, and it would be particularly nice to do it in front of our own fans. “But Dagenham will be

difficult, their league position says as such. They don’t hide and get the ball forward very quickly. “We have to match their threat and try to dominate possession. It will be a clash of two contrasting styles.” On the bench will be his new number two Chris Casper, who joins the club as first team coach. Woods has known the former Bury boss a long time. He became the league’s youngest manager when he was appointed by the Shakers aged 30, in 2005. But he was sacked in January last year after a run of poor results and joined Bradford City as youth coach. Mike Newell’s assistant Brian Stein has left the club by mutual consent. It is the first piece of the jigsaw as Woods starts re-

building the footballing side at Blundell Park. “Brian Stein is a good friend and has been a hard worker for the football club. This is purely a professional decision rather than a personal one. “I have my own views on how the footballing side of the club should be run. “I’ve known Chris a long time. He is a coach, just like me and has come in and got involved straight away. I want to restructure it so that people have specific roles and everyone knows what they are. “Chris is a good coach who will work with the first team but also work with the 18 to 21-year-olds. “They won’t be going home at 1.30pm any more but be coached by him in the afternoon. “If you look over the last 10 years at the number of

young players who have played in the first team a few times only to fade away, it tells its own story. “There have been too many examples, too often. We must make sure we do not lose our prospects at this football club, the likes of Josh Fuller and Bradley Wood. “They will have individual time spent on them to help them develop. I want them to come through the system and prosper in the first team. “We know we have some terrific young players, much better than those they are coming up against in other teams. We have to change the work ethic of the 18-to 21-year-olds. “They need to fulfil their potential.” John Tondeur’s verdict on the Macclesfield game – see page 42.
