Postcard from Lytham & St Annes Your mind might be on Christmas and the festive season, but along the Fylde Coast the tide continues to come in and out twice every day – bringing a whole lot of debris with it. The debris is not just unsightly, it’s also a serious threat to wildlife which lives on the beaches and in our seas. It’s also a marker of a much more serious problem, and the sanitary waste which washes up stems from overflows from the sewage system.

washed up it makes you much more careful about how you behave at home. There are beach cleans at Lytham and St Annes that you can join in with. There are two websites for Fylde, www.visitStAnnes. info and www.visitLytham.info. You can also subscribe for email updates to make sure that you don’t miss out!

If you’ve got anything to tell us just email jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk or ring 07932 143431.

At times of heavy rainfall, and let’s face it we’ve had more than our fair share, there’s too great a volume of water at once for the system to cope. It only takes blockages with fats, rags and things that shouldn’t go down the drain, and the sewage system overflows into watercourses. That might be wrong, but it would be really wrong for it to flood our streets and homes. Each one of us can help by not putting things down our sinks, drains and toilets that should go in a bin. Why don’t you come on a community beach clean? When you get on the beach and see for yourself how much sanitary waste gets

ROLEX…WHAT A DIFFERENCE A NAME MAKES ! ! Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, founded Wilsdorf and Davis, the company that would eventually become Rolex SA, in London, England in 1905 Wilsdorf and Davis’ main business at the time was importing Hermann Aegler’s Swiss movements to England and placing them in quality watch cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were sold to jewellers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from Wilsdorf and Davis were usually hallmarked “W&D” inside the caseback. In 1908, Wilsdorf registered the trademark “Rolex” and opened an office in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The company name “Rolex” was registered on 15 November 1915. The book The Best of Time: Rolex Wristwatches: An Unauthorized History by Jeffrey P. Hess and James Dowling says that the name was just made up. One story, never confirmed by Wilsdorf, is that the name came from the French phrase horlogerie exquise, meaning “exquisite clockwork.” In October 2012, Gerrards were pleased to feature two fine examples of Rolex wrist watches in their auction as shown below. Today the difference in comparative prices/quality is quite staggering - watches can start for as little as say £5 and they all carry out the same function of telling us the time – What a difference a name makes !

Prune

Blackcurrants

December is a good time to prune blackcurrants as the absence of foliage makes it easier to see old stems that need to be removed. Blackcurrants fruit on both new and old wood and are grown with the branches growing in a clump from, or just under, ground level.

Book Review Lancashire This fascinating selection of photographs traces some of the many ways in which Lytham, Fairhaven and Ansdell have changed and developed over the last century.

Bibliographic Information Publication: October 2012 Price: £14.99 ISBN: 978-1-4456-1059-7 Size: 235 x 165mm Binding: Paperback Extent: 96 pages Illustrations: approx 180 illustrations Rights: World, all languages

LYTHAM, FAIRHAVEN & ANSDELL THROUGH TIME PETER C BYROM Lytham was founded about AD 600 and is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Lidun. In 1199 the lands were given over to the Benedictine Monks of Durham, who established a priory there, and today the parish church is St Cuthbert’s, built near the spot where St Cuthbert was reputedly laid to rest by the Lindisfarne Monks. Fairhaven and Ansdell lie close by Lytham, with the railway line marking the accepted boundary between the two, Ansdell on the landward side, Fairhaven on the seaward. Fairhaven is distinguished by the beautiful Granny’s Bay and its namesake lake, and used to be a fruitful fishing town. Today it is a well-known conservation and bird-watching site. Ansdell, meanwhile, was named after famous equestrian artist Richard Ansdell and is known for its rugby ground and for hosting the largest school in Lancashire. This book takes a wonderfully nostalgic look at these towns on the Fylde Coast, and demonstrates just how many of their delights remain unchanged.

The Author Peter Byrom was state educated, leaving school when he was 15 to take up an apprenticeship at ICI as an electrician in the Northwich area of Cheshire. He eventually moved to Blackpool in Lancashire and became self employed, running a sweet and tobacconist’s shop, then a guest house, before moving to St Annes as proprietor of a general store. For the last 12 years before retirement, his wife and he were House Managers of two large complexes of private apartments in St Annes. He likes to travel abroad with his wife, their favourite country being Italy. His hobbies are classical music, local history, family history and photography.

Lytham St Annes News 30

Planting marks start of park improvement plan Trees and 2,000 bulbs have been planted to give a new look to Lansdowne Park in Ansdell. Volunteers from the Friends of Lansdowne Park aim to give a new look to the park next spring – and the bulbs and trees are only a start. They have raised over £30,000 from a variety of sources including Fylde Local Strategic Partnership. A further cash bid is in the pipeline to Lancashire Environment Fund. Long-term plans include new play equipment, further planting and resurfacing the football pitch.

“We hope to add to that by making an application to the Lancashire Environment Fund, so that we can really make the park fit for the 21st century.” Last year’s fun-day launched a public consultation on what improvements the community wanted to see for the park. The resulting masterplan includes the planting, the new play equipment and resurfacing of the soccer pitch. Jacqui Murray, a member of the Friends’ group, added: “Members of the community have been behind this scheme since we first organised last year’s fun day. The planting we have done over the last two weekends is an interim improvement – a sign of larger improvements to come.”

Tracy Morrison, Friends’ chair, said: “Volunteers have worked tremendously hard so far and the fund-raising work continues. We raised £500 at a community fun day last year and carried on from there, so that we now have more than £30,000 to spend.

Lytham St Annes News

LYTHAM ST ANNES FOOTBALL CLUB Like every other club the LSA YMCA Football Club has been badly affected by the weather. League programmes have been decimated on many weekends due to waterlogged pitches as the rain has continued to fall relentlessly. Fixture congestion is already beginning to build up even at this early stage of the season. After being County Cup champions for the past three seasons the Under 16s went out of this season’s competition in the 3rd round losing 2-1 to a last minute goal at St Helens Town, the team we beat in the final last year. However, both the Under 13s and 15s progressed to the 4th round with excellent home victories and in the league, the Under 13s, 15s and 16s all reached mid-November with unbeaten records.

The three pitches at the Seafield Rd sports ground continue to cause some concern. They have not recovered as well as expected after the damage caused when the venue was used as a car park during the British Open Golf Championship held at Lytham last July, despite the committed efforts of voluntary grounds man Lyndon Moore. The very wet weather during the past few months though certainly hasn’t helped in their recovery and with the grass growing season now virtually over it is unlikely they will return to their normal standard this season. ‘Lozz’ Rose Secretary
