Used Car Feature Proper practical 4x4s The recent “worst winter in 30 years” has seen cars with off road ability come back in favour again. If you want to stay under the radar of the eco activists and don’t want to take out a second mortgage to pay the running costs, any of these four would suit your needs admirably. Landrover Defender Td5 (1998 to present) Based on a car first produced in 1948 the Defender is classless and timelessly cool. Its off road abilities are astonishing; it’s as practical as a Massey Ferguson and, to all intents and purposes, indestructible. You can get one with a V8 engine but it’s apocalyptically thirsty. The 5 pot diesel provides all the power you need and is reasonably frugal. They’re surprisingly expensive, a ten year old model with 100k plus on the clock will cost you £8k but depreciation is minimal. For: Bombproof, go anywhere capability, even the Queen drives one. Against: Desperately uncomfortable, terrible handling, slow.

Subaru Forester SG 2.O XT Turbo (2003 to 2008) An unsung hero, the Forester is pretty much all things to all men. That tall boxy body provides plenty of room and it’s good enough in the mud to meet the needs of most of us. It is comfortable, well equipped and staggeringly well screwed together. That flat four turbo is a detuned version of the one that hurls the Impreza WRX around rally courses so it’s no slouch either and it’s so understated that even the most eagle-eyed Greenpeace member won’t give you a Audi Allroad Quattro 2.5 TDI (1999 to 2005) second glance.

Community First Responders are an intrinsic part of the North West Ambulance Service. Responders do not replace dispatching an ambulance but are uniquely placed within their local area to responder rapidly and attend to provide vital life-saving treatment. How it works Responders work as part of a local team. They are on call and are dispatched when an emergency life threatening call is received by the ambulance service. Since they are based within the communities they cover, they are often able to get to a scene first and provide critical care prior to the arrival of the ambulance. Responders are trained to deal with life threatening conditions and carry equipment such as oxygen and an automatic defibrillator designed to provide electric shocks to restart the heart. So what is it like being a community first responder? Being a community first responder has allowed me to feel like I am giving something to the community, helping people who really need some support. Some jobs are just providing some oxygen to someone who is having trouble breathing to helping someone stay safe after a fit. Some jobs are literally trying to save a person’s life. A typical duty would consist of checking the kit is all in working order, notifying control of your availability and waiting. Some days you can be sat there and get no calls, others you can get several and each job is different. Do you have to stop what you are doing? The short answer is no, ideally first responders would be available 24 hours a day but with most of us having busy lives we do know that for many people things crop up and you might have to come of duty all we ask is that you let someone know as somebody else in the group may be able to respond. But I don’t I need to know first aid? Community first responders are trained and equipped, by North West ambulance service and have to pass regular assessments. How much training is involved? The initial training is approximately 28 hours, followed by regular group meetings within your local area, which provide support and assistance to each other. http://www.nwas-responders.info

Heart charity, Heart Research UK, is looking for walkers in the Lancashire to join the fight against heart disease by putting on their walking boots and tackling the challenges of the Lyke Wake Walk or the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in 2010. The walks will both be held in June of this year anyone can take part with friends, family or colleagues; everyone is welcome. On Saturday 5 June walkers can take up the challenge of the Lyke Wake Walk. It’s a demanding 40 mile crossing of the North Yorkshire Moors from Ravenscar to Osmotherley, with participants challenged to complete the walk in less than 24 hours. It is a hard walk, not for the faint hearted; it involves climbing 5000ft and is undulating with a number of short steep climbs and two ravines, coupled with peat bog crossings.

“If you’re looking for a walk that’s a little less extreme then perhaps you would enjoy the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge?

The event takes place on Saturday 19 June and covers three of the highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales – Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. The 25 mile challenge provides spectacular scenery, gets your heart pumping and helps to raise money for pioneering research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. The charity needs as many dedicated, physically fit people as possible to do one, two, or even three peaks to help it continue the fight against heart disease.

If you’re interested or for more information on either of these events please contact Heart research UK on 0113 2347 474, email fundraising@heartresearch.org.uk or visit our website www.heartresearch.org.uk

Ten things you didn’t know about general elections

Topical Feature With a general election imminent in the next three months we thought now would be the time to give you some mildly interesting facts about this much anticipated event. Here they are: Hanging in the wind With the Conservative lead narrowing, media pundits are talking about the increasing likelihood of a hung parliament, a situation where no single party has a clear majority of seats. This last happened in 1974 and anyone who things it would be a good thing might like to study that period of British political history.

New Faces Since the last election all three main parties have acquired new leaders. The last time that happened was in 1979 when Margaret Thatcher came to power. David Cameron may well take that as a good sign.

We really can’t be bothered The lowest election turnout was in 1918 with 57.2%, mainly because most of the electorate were fighting in the trenches, but the 61.4% recorded last time wasn’t much better. Compare this to the brave new world of 1950 when 83.9% pitched up at the polling station. Sadly, last year’s Time to face the music expenses scandal will not have done much to lift The election must be held by the third of June and voter apathy. we must be given the date of the election by the 10th of May. Let’s hope they don’t leave it that Don’t believe the hype long, eh? Recent polls give the Tories a 9% lead which seems quite encouraging. However, last time How many lots of expenses? around Labour managed to win 55% of the seats Following constituency boundary changes since with 35% of the votes while the Liberals won 20% the last election, the number of parliamentary of the votes but only got 10% of the seats. Seems seats has increased to 650. That’s four more a little unfair but, there you go – that’s politics! mouths to feed or, more importantly, four more second homes to fund. The Irish Question At the last election none of the three main parties Smile, you’re on television were represented in Northern Ireland. Nor at the For the first time ever there will be a televised one before that, come to mention. Residents of debate between the leaders of the three main Belfast need not worry about Gordon, Dave or parties. Telegenic, good looking and virile Nick knocking on their door while doing a spot of (according to the leader of the Liberal Democrats canvassing. anyway) Nick Clegg must be hoping to secure a healthy slice of the female vote. We’re not sure which section of the populace Gordon Brown will be hoping to target. Not time to face the music In the aftermath of the expenses scandal no fewer than 128 MPs will be standing down at the next election, the greatest number since 1945 when it had been 10 years since the previous election. There was a war on, don’t you know. Cometh the hourA Britain last had a liberal government in 1922 and with only 10% of the seats at the last election that doesn’t look like it will change any time soon. However, in the event of a hung parliament the Liberals might well hold the balance of power. Power at last!

Fleetwood Church Events

LINK-Community Fleetwood Churches Together During this season of Lent, as we build up to our Easter celebrations, we would be delighted to welcome everyone to our Lent Talks and Lent Lunches. The Lent Talks take place each Wednesday evening during Lent, at Mount Church, starting at 7.30pm. Each week there will be a different speaker, each talking on the theme “I Believe in the Holy Spirit”. Afterwards there will be a “Question & Answer” session, followed by fellowship and gossip over a brew. The first talk has already taken place, in Feb when Canon Dick Cartmell, from the Anglican Church, started the talks off in his own inimitable, thought provoking way. Wednesday 10th March – Rev Frank Sudworth – a Minister in the Full Gospel Church. Wednesday 17th March – Rev Dr. Bill Davies – A Minister in the Methodist Church. Wednesday 24th March – Fr. Chris Loughran – a Priest in the Roman Catholic Church. The Lent Lunches are held at different churches each Friday lunch-time, from 11.45am to 1.15pm. The lunch consists of soup, a roll, and a piece of cheese, together with tea/coffee. At each host church there will be a “Bring and Buy” stall, and, also, a stall selling “Help for Heroes” merchandise. “Help for Heroes” is this year’s chosen charity to receive all donations made for the lunch and from the sale of goods. We have already held the first two successful lunches – February 19th at Mount Church, and February 26th at St. David’s Church. Thank you for starting us off so well.

Round Up by Derick Thomas - Pictures by Darren Clarke Jamie Blundell

School Holiday Club The Fleetwood Town soccer club proved successful during last half-term and was held on the Memorial Park, with use of the Highbury Stadium facilities. The club’s community youth coach Melissa Brown invited the youngsters to the first team game against Northwich Victoria at the end of February as a reward for their hard work. Melissa put the youngsters through their drills on the pitch at half-time under the guidance of first-team players Stephen Torpey and Danny Hurst. The next Fleetwood Town holiday football is at Easter when two courses will be held. The cost of the course is £10 per day or £40 for the week. Discounts are available for more than one immediate family member. For details call 07970 557697.

James and Andrew Pendlebury joined the first team when they appeared as mascots for the game against Northwich Victoria. Fleetwood Town U18 skipper Adam Sumner travelled to Rome with the English Colleges FA national squad. The team made the journey to Italy in February to take part in the "Caput Mundi" youth tournament. During the group stages the English team faced tough opposition and lost 2-1 against Slovenia. Sumner came on at half time and then played for 90 minutes in the defeat to Romania. The last game of the tournament was lost on penalties to Greece.

Captain Cod goes back to school Fleetwood Town mascot Captain Cod paid a surprise visit to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Fleetwood at the end of February. The pupils were studying animals that are endangered species and cod is on the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) at risk list.
