PILLAR OF THE COMMUNITY by Stephen Guy He was born in a tiny village overlooking Kirkcudbright Bay in Scotland and rose to become a leading Liverpool businessman and prominent politician. Samuel Smith – later known as the Cotton King of Liverpool was born in 1836 at Borgue and educated locally before going to Edinburgh University.

During this period Liverpool was growing rapidly and increasing in prosperity. Samuel was among the many people who were drawn to the port from far and wide. Apprenticed to a Liverpool cotton broker in 1853, he worked hard and quickly gasped the complexities of the huge trade. Cotton was very big business

in\deed in Liverpool and Lancashire throughout the 19th century. Raw cotton was imported into Liverpool before being made into cloth and clothing in Lancashire. Many people made their own clothes but off-the-peg items were becoming more widespread as mass production methods were perfected. By 1864 Samuel was head of the Liverpool branch of James Finlay & Co., a large cotton business based in Glasgow and Bombay. This was a time of great crisis in the Lancashire cotton industry because the American Civil War had seen supplies of raw cotton dry up. The ending of the war saw a return to mass production which continued to rise for decades as Britain and the Empire boomed. Samuel popularised Indian cotton in Britain where it had previously been largely unknown. He helped to diversify trade and encouraged manufacturers to seek out new markets. Samuel decided to go into politics as a Liberal and was first elected to Parliament in an 1882 Liverpool by-election. He lost his seat in 1885 but the following year became MP for Flintshire – a post he held for 20 years. His good works included establishing the Liverpool Gordon Smith Institute for Seamen in memory of his son. Samuel made frequent visits to India and died in Calcutta in 1906. His friends and supporters in Liverpool decided to put up a fitting memorial to his memory. A 60 ft tall granite pillar was erected in Sefton Park by public subscription. Samuel’s bewhiskered portrait benevolently overlooks the main entrance to the park. The simple inscription records brief details of his life and adds that he was a Christian philanthropist, social reformer and friend of India. • Learn more about the history of Liverpool at the new Museum of Liverpool, Pier Head, open 10 am to 5 pm every day, admission free.

AMPUTEE SOLDIER IS AN INSPIRATION Former Royal Marine Who Lost His Leg Due To an IED is turning his Wounds into Wisdom and is now a Motivational Speaker Aged just 24, Andy Grant is an Iraq and Afghanistan War Veteran and an amputee. After successful completion of the Potential Royal Marine Course, he embarked on the 32week basic training and earned his coveted Green Beret. Andy joined 45 Commando, Royal Marines in Scotland and after a tour in Iraq he then went on to Afghanistan. On 3rd Feb. 2009, on a routine early morning foot patrol in Sangin, Helmand Provence, his best friend and lead-man

jumped over a ditch, triggering a wire that detonated 2 IED’s (improvised explosive devices) hidden in the ground. Aged just 20 years old, he sustained 27 separate injuries to his face, four limbs and torso, including losing his femoral artery and 6cm of bone in his right leg. He was in a coma for 2 weeks, hospital for 3 months, and then spent 18 months in rehabilitation at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. With injuries to his right leg not healing as it was hoped, Andy made the life-changing and heart-wrenching decision to have a below-knee amputation in November 2010. Just 3 weeks after this, with the aid of crutches and a prosthetic limb, he

was up walking. He was discharged from the Royal Marines on 22nd May 2012, and Andy was prompted to think about what it is he wanted to do in

life. Having seen his mum battle leukemia and sadly pass away when he was just 12 years old, to military life and suffering life-changing injuries, from

this Andy developed S.M.A.R.T, a technique that has helped him overcome his personal adversities in life, and that can

THE ALL-SEEING EYE He had a strange, distinctive look about him – the haughty expression, the nonchalant air but, most of all, his penetrating eye. Vincent Colebrook lived in shabby splendour in a villa that once echoed to the sound of laughter and the drone of conversation. It was now silent. It was the period between the wars when Liverpool was hit by the Depression. The wheels of industry slowed, fewer ships came into port and many people were out of work. The modern world stopped at the sandstone gates of Vermont in the leafy Victorian suburb. At one time the Valdemarts and the Colebrooks had socialised, when business deals were struck over cigars and whisky. Vincent ignored the passing years. He wrapped himself in the past as he wrapped himself in his theatrical cloak when he boiled off his inner rage in long walks across the city’s parks.

He could afford to ignore the realities of the 1930s. His family had grown rich, like many others, as cotton traders. My father, Frederic, knew him well. They had similar interests although Vincent was a product of the last gasps

of Victorian era. Vincent had a rather grumpy old butler called Stumble, who would usher visitors into The Presence. Invariably Vincent would be sitting, legs elegantly crossed, in his leather armchair by the fire.

Adjusting his monocle, he would offer you the seat opposite and scrutinise you with his all-seeing eye. Father said it was like being examined by a predatory insect. In his youth Vincent had been on the stage and knew the power of

He could be terrifying and funny in equal measures. “You have been though the woods and sat on the stone seat at Camp Hill,” was his opening remark on one visit. Father confirmed that Vincent was correct. “You guessed it – I usually come that way,” said Dad. Vincent laughed: “Only partly – the mud on your shoes and the sand on your coat give some of the game away.” Other so-called guesses

were not so harmless. One acquaintance had a terrible shock when he visited Vincent one freezing January day when even the rooks and crows were silent. Vincent’s face had he aspect of a cadaver, his piercing blue eye peered through the monocle as a fish looks through the ice of a frozen pond. “You must not see her,” he quietly told his visitor. “If you do, the earth will collapse and you will be trapped forever.” The following day, the young man was on his way

across a field to meet his girlfriend, who worked in nearby stables. He saw her, waved – and promptly vanished from sight. He had fallen down an old well and was rescued with great difficulty. At Vincent’s funeral, father was watching the coffin being lowered into the family vault when he distinctly heard a familiar voice murmur: “I can see you”.

HALLOWE’EN – THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT!! It’s that time of year again – but Hallowe’en (or Eve of All Hallows) means daifferent things to different people. The early Christian church saw it as a day to celebrate the saints and it was also known as All Saints Day.

The Celts celebrated their dead in pagan rituals long before Christianity made it’s presence felt and, as with so many other festivities, the pagan tradition combined with the church tradition to give the day a flavour all of it’s own.

Of course, what would Hallowe’en be without seasonal goodies such as roast chestnuts, toffee apples or, in Ireland, the traditional barmbrack (fruit bread). Added to these, the growing popularity of American treats such as pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie now makes Hallowe’en a truly multi-cultural affair, with fun for everyone. “Trick or treat” is a recent American import which arouses mixed feelings but we, of course, have our old customs such as “duckapple” or “applebobbing”, which can be great fun for all the family, and every home should have it’s own jacko-lantern, of course – an eerily carved turnip or pumpkin with a candle inside it to complete the ghostly effect. This is believed to be a relic from the Celtic past when every home would

light a candle to show the way home to spirits revisiting the earth for the day so the jack-olantern very much symbolises the ancient and modern aspects of this popular festivity.

Say you saw it in the LINK Teenagers love the horror films and fancy-dress parties which have now become so popular and there is another cross-cultural reference here with the United States giving back it’s influence on a tradition which crossed the Atlantic with the Scots and Irish who voyaged there in such large numbers in the 19th. century. Many people are surprised to learn, however, that costume parties and trick-or-treat did not appear until the mid 20th. century, even though they have now made Hallowe’en a considerable moneyspinner around the globe. So, however you choose to celebrate, we at The Link wish all our readers a very happy and enjoyable Hallowe’en!

1990s and also boxed professionally after setting an amateur record for successive knockout wins in one season. His first book (“Three Weeks-One Night”) spawned a whole raft of home town urban myths and his new book (“Colourful”) is a darkly witty collection of personal anecdotes that serve as a platform for a self-deprecating black humour. Stephen is currently producing the feature film “Angel Falls” and creating the animated TV Series “Sockland”. “Colourful” is now available on Amazon (Kindle edition priced at £2.96) and has attracted a 5-star rating and some fantastic reviews (one reviewer called it “a Liverpudlian masterpiece” and another commented “…it’s absolutely brilliant, a

right laugh from start to finish…..so thought provoking as well, it will leave you wonder-

AMPUTEE SOLDIER IS AN INSPIRATION continued from page 3 be applied in any walk of life. Although his story is unique, the problems and adversities we all face in our daily lives are very similar. Andy now spends his time going into schools, community groups, charities and the corporate world sharing his experiences with others, describing how he overcame adversity and showing that it’s how you deal with the situation that counts, turning anything negative into a positive. On his visits, he takes with him his ‘bag of tricks’ which really engages the audience and creates some fantastic questions, especially with school-aged children. The kit includes pieces of shrapnel taken out of his body, Royal Marine clothing, a selection of his prosthetic legs, and a

tourniquet. If a tourniquet hadn’t been applied by his fellow Marines he would have bled to death within minutes and this perfectly highlights the importance of working as a team. Andy was awarded Juice FMs Outstanding Achievement Award at their Inspiration Awards in April 2012. Andy Grant really is an inspiration and is working so hard to inspire others, especially children and young people. In January 2013, he is competing in the Dakar Rally (the world’s toughest rally!) with Race2Recovery. He is also hoping to be part of the next Walking with the Wounded challenge and is hoping to be part of the South Pole expedition in 2013. Over Armed Forces Weekend 2013, Andy and a committee are arrang-

ing a summer ball in aid of Help for Heroes at the Liverpool Hilton Hotel. Andy’s partner Leonie works hard raising money for charity and is one of the 2013 Royal Marine Wives and Girlfriends Calendar Girls, which is out in October, raising money for the Royal Marine Charitable Trust Fund, and is also taking part in the 10k Commando Challenge. This picture is of Andy and his little girl Brooke, aged 4, running along Crosby Beach. We hope you find this picture as moving and inspiring as we do. For more information or to schedule an interview please contact Andy directly on 07875 633198 or email: AndyGrantMotivation@gmail.com website: www.AndyGrantMotivation.com

who still exerts any influence over us. If you think back to your childhood, how was your behaviour affected by what someone else said to you? Maybe a remark from a teacher or colleague such as “what a stupid answer” made you think twice about raising your hand again in class for fear of humiliation. Can you remember any strong beliefs that you formed about yourself or your situation? It is likely that these beliefs still influence your behaviour today. Beliefs can play a big part when working towards something, e.g. “Can I really achieve that? Am I worthy of that?”. If you think of a belief as a tabletop, it will have 4 legs to support it. For example, if you have a belief that “I’m ugly”, then you will need 4 legs or references to support that belief. “I’m fat, I have spots, I have bad breath, nobody loves me”. If you decide that something is bad then I’m sure you could find references to back up that belief. If you decide something is good, then I’m sure you could find beliefs to back this up also. You and I live through our beliefs. What I want is to help you to change your beliefs into more positive ones..

DOG OF THE MONTH

To advertise see page TWO Sam, male, Border Collie, Aged 2 years Sam is an absolute sweetheart who came into Dogs Trust Merseyside from a stray pound. He can be very nervous of new people but once you have gained his trust he gives fabulous cuddles. Sam prefers human company so would like to be the only dog in the home. Sam needs a patient home who can give him the time and space to gain a bond with him. We do not know Sam’s history but he does get worried in new environments and is a bit of an escape artist so his new owner will need to keep a careful eye on him! Sadly Sam came to us

with a leg that had an old injury and unfortunately this leg had to be removed but he is coping very well on just three. Dogs are in fact amazingly good at adapting to the loss of a limb. Once they are over the actual operation (probably a few days), they very quickly learn to walk on the other three legs and once they’re fit enough to run around you’ll hardly know there’s a leg missing. If you would like to offer a home to Sam please call Dogs Trust Merseyside directly on 0151 480 0660, visit the centre at Whiston Lane, Huyton, L36 6HP or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk

An Historic Chance IT might not be as dramatic as Downtown Abbey but vacancies have arisen for maids, butlers or footmen at an Edwardian Country House. The jobs, however, are not full-time positions and they come without pay. Croxteth Hall is looking to recruit more Heritage Volunteers to form part of the “household staff” at the hall. They will help guide thousands of visitors around the Hall and Estate each year. “The volunteers play an essential role in the Hall’s living history educational programme, “said Councillor Peter Mitchell, Mayoral Lead on Parks and Open Spaces. “So this is a fantastic chance for anybody with a few hours to spare and who is interested in history to join a great team in a fascinating role. Anybody who is interested in volunteering should contact the Rangers on 0151-233-6915 or 6912 or email park.rangers@liverpool.gov.uk or call in to the park for a chat.

SOUTH ON THE FRONT FOOT continued from page 28 despite losing their main strikers, Mitchell McNally and Francis Evans, for a large part of the early season due to injury and marriage respectively. The 33 home draw with Belfry saw the team achieve a point with two penalties in the last minute, expertly put away by Ross Kennedy. The team’s solitary defeat at rivals from Formby, Redgate Rovers, was the result

of a late injury after the three substitutes had already been used with the 10 men conceding 2 goals in the last five minutes. The youth team have also got off to a good start and having finished 4rd last season are favourites to take the title. A 6-1 home win over a youthful Custys was improved by a 2-0 win at Vauxhall Motors with spectacular goals by Kieran Parker and Callum Brown.

ALDER FC - GREAT START TO THE SEASON by Peter Harrison The club is fielding four teams this season and all four have made promising starts to the campaign. The first team, who were last season promoted to the first division of the County Premier League, started their campaign with a disappointing home defeat to Allerton. However, two back to back wins, 2-1 against Alumni and 5-3 against Copperas Hill, have seen then move to fourth in the table. Goals have come from stalwarts John Elias, Chris McCabe, Terry Tynan and Jopo. The second team, who are in the second division of the County Premier League, have also made a promising start with a flying 5-1 away victory against Aintree Villa, and a 44 draw against a strong KCFC team, having trailed 2-0 at half time. Amongst the goals have been Tony Barnes, Josh Breen and Michael Wall.

The third team, a new younger outfit under the guidance of Will Grant and Jimmy Keegan, are unbeaten in their opening two fixtures in the I-Zingari Combination first division. A 2-2 draw against Liverpool Cavaliers was followed by a strong 21 victory against Walton CTC. Danny McNally scored the crucial penalty against Walton with Ben Bright, Aaron Fitzsimmons and Pedro Cooke the other marksmen in these fixtures. Finally, the Vets XI demolished De la Salle in the opening day fixture. They followed this up with a credible 2-2 draw against Winchester but then tasted defeat 2-1 against Bleak Vets after conceding a last minute goal. New capture Steve Stewart has scored 6 goals in the three fixtures, with Neil James, Mark Carney and Kevin Haddo also being amongst the goals.

In the opening home fixture of the campaign spectators at Stoneycroft FC’s Maiden Lane ground were treated to an enthralling spectacle as goals flew in at either end as both teams attacked as if their lives depended on it. Twice coming back from behind, the Stoneycroft players showed character and determination to fight their way back into contention and eventually run out worthy winners against last season’s champions. With five players in the Stoneycroft line up helping themselves to a goal

apiece it was clear that the onus was on teamwork. Kev Moss, with a beautifully taken free kick that flew in to the net from twenty-five yards, Paul Carruthers, Paul Boardman and a rare headed goal from Mike Kinney all registered on the score sheet. Perhaps the real Roy of the Rovers story, though, was the fact that Eddie Baker, making his first appearance since breaking a leg half way through last season, was able to complete the scoring for a delighted Croft. Sadly Eddie, who had come on as a late substitute, had to go off after his goal and club officials suggest that he may require a little more time to complete his recovery.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with the team’s display” enthused a delighted manager, John Leary: “This was a great team performance in which everybody was involved. We played some great stuff and were well worthy of victory. If we can continue to play like that and maintain consistency then we will be in the reckoning come the end of the season. But this is just one game and we have to maintain the momentum and not let our guard drop”. The Croft have more tough fixtures coming up so one can only hope that they can keep up this level of performance. One thing is certain: games like this will bring the crowds in!

Eddie Baker was a scorer on his short lived return from injury against APH.
