MARKET A BIG SUCCESS The LINK (Moira and Dawn) attended the second West Derby Farmers Market a couple of Saturdays ago. First we bumped into Steph and Alan Turner of Karmic Angels. Karmic Angels is an International registered charity

N.G.O. who are making a difference in West Africa. They are on their third school build and have been given land the size of 8 football pitches for agricultural plants, fruit, organic and working with over 200 women. They would welcome any gardening gloves, seeds and so on and, of course,

any monetary donations. Contact Stephanie Turner on Regular volunteers are also needed for their many fundraising events. We also met many other stallholders, including: • Jean’s Chocolate Box, a lovely colourful sweet stall selling hand-made cinder toffee, nut brittle, crispy cakes, fudges and sweets. • Jem’s Homemade Jams and Preserves, selling home-made sweets and preserves from old recipes belonging to mum and grandma. Most recipes date back to about 1927 and no artificial

colours, flavourings or preservatives are used. • Delicious Sauce Company - Seven flavours of chilli sauces, including garlic chilli, mint chilli, piri-piri • Larkin’s Farm

stall - fruit and veg stall. Many of the products are grown locally at Larkin’s Farm which is based in Croxteth • Tracy’s Kitchen local people from Croxteth Park. All

home-made produce, delicious strawberry jam and marmalade. English strawberries; gift baskets made to order with free local delivery. Occasion cakes. Cherry and walnut fruit cake, scones, etc. Delicious! Tel No. • Yorkshire Punch a non-alcoholic sugar-free drink made by Greg. Greg told us it’s made from an old monastic recipe and contains 14 herbs

NORMAN CONQUEROR by Stephen Guy, West Derby Society The Norman knights battled with the Saxons in a fight to the death with England as the prize. William of Normandy’s invasion culminated in the Battle of Hastings, one of the most decisive events in British history. The 1066 victory saw the native English defeated and deprived of their power and wealth. King Harold, England’s ruler, died in the battle and the Normans took control – French became the language of the court for hundreds of years. William the Conqueror carried

out a massive audit of his newlyacquired country. The Doomsday Book recorded all the communities including West Derby. There was no Liverpool – just a farm on the banks of the Mersey. Among William’s knights in that key battle was William de Molines. We do not know much about him except that he was number 18 on the Battle Abbey Roll. William hailed from a province in Normandy called Moulineaux (mills). continued on page 4

How Did your Ancestors Live a Hundred Years Ago? Local author Kenny O’Connell became interested in researching family history and after then reading “The Gangs of Liverpool” (a history of Liverpool’s Victorian street gangs written by Michael Macilwee) he decided to a write a novel based on the subject. By using the comparisons between the 2011 and the 1911 census years he came up with a story that is told through the eyes of a hoodie who is sent back in time to 1911. The Hoodie goes on a life-changing journey into the past; he witnesses poverty, injustice and the brutality of the 1911 riots. The hunter then becomes the hunted as he becomes a victim of the notorious High Rip Gang, who terrorised Liverpool. What they said about “The Hoodie and the High Rip Gang”: • Doctor Michael Macilwee (author)… “A stirring tale of gang warfare, love and redemption in the Liverpool slums” • Andrew Schofield (actor)... “Every now and then another great story about Liverpool comes along and I believe this to be one of them” • Dave Kirby (playwright)... “This is a great book that incorporates a lot of factual events, blending them in with fiction. I love the idea of a hoodie being sent back in time and learning some hard lessons from the past” The book is on sale at Waterstones (Bold Street and Liverpool One), iTunes bookstore and Kindle

NORMAN CONQUEROR

Battle Abbey, built by William I, stands where King Harold died. The Roll is said to have listed more than 600 of William’s companions who helped him seize England. It disappeared long ago and we know it mainly from alleged 16th century copies published by chroniclers. The contents and nature of the Roll remain controversial but many agree that it probably compiled in the 1300s, long after the battle. Once William had compiled the Doomsday Book he proceeded to carve up England among his cohorts, pushing out the defeated Saxons. The chief Norman in north west England was Roger de Poitou, Earl of Lancaster. His trusted friend was Vivian, son and heir of William de Molines. Roger granted the manor of Sefton to the de Molineses and Vivian became governor of West Derby Castle, a small but important fortress protecting the route

Dog of the Month Bruno is a handsome and friendly eight year old Black and Grey Cocker Spaniel at Dogs Trust Merseyside. He came to the rehoming centre from the dog warden who brought him in as his family didn’t want him anymore. Bruno has got cataracts which restrict his vision, but he is currently undergoing tests at the centre to determine

whether this is operable. Despite his eyesight problems Bruno is bouncy and full of energy! However he does need a lot of human company and gets very distressed when left alone. He therefore needs to be rehomed with someone who is at home a lot of the time. Bruno can be rehomed with children aged over eight but not with cats. The rehoming centre is also currently running desperately low on stocks of tinned dog food, so is appealing to readers for any tins they can spare. If you would like to offer a home to Bruno or have any

Between each course the action, murder and mystery unfolds.

The table who can deduce “Who done it” wins a bottle of wine.

CELEBRATING ANCIENT MIDSUMMER WITH A MODERN SPIRIT by Teresa Gestwa

CAN’T GET TO OUR SHOWROOM? WE CAN COME TO YOU!

According to a Polish Midsummer celebration ritual, if the floating wreath is found in the river by a fitting mate the wreath maker will marry very soon, otherwise she shall wait for the next 12 months. Even though this practice may not be an accurate marriage prediction in the modern world, it did not stop over 300 people from enjoying traditional Polish wreath making recently in the World Museum Liverpool, initiated by Merseyside Polonia. As soon as the door of the Weston Discovery Centre was open to the public the room was full of people interested in this unique Polish custom. The Midsummer Night is a magic time of the year rejoiced by the ancient Slavs as a celebration of fire and water. One of the rituals that accompanied it was making and floating flower garlands down the river. Rather than believing in this pagan tradition Merseyside Polonia preferred to enjoy this Polish ritual by turning it into a community gathering and a great opportunity to try out visitors’ artistic skills. This successful event saw many happy faces in the World Museum who were eager to celebrate Polish culture. Wreath making was a bit of a challenge for some but one to evoke a great sense of achievement. Take a look at the impressive cress paper flower crowns documented on many photos available on the charity’s Facebook page. As an organisation fostering good relationships between the local community and Polish people, Merseyside Polonia offers an array of cultural events throughout the year. If you wish to find out more visit Merseyside Polonia on Facebook or sign up for an event alert by sending an email to info@merseysidepolonia.com.

Wallasey-born, ‘Great British Bake Off’ judge, Paul Hollywood, will also be hosting the ‘Great Merseyside Bake Off’, as part of this year’s event. Top Malaysian chef, Norman Musa, will be offering tips and cookery classes on Malaysian cooking, while Lisa Faulkner will be demonstrating favourite recipes from her bestselling book. While Tom Kitchin, Aiden Byrne and The Fabulous Baker Brothers, will be challenged to create a selection of tasty treats, using the finest ingredients from food suppliers and local producers taking part in the festival, including Bessy Beck Trout Fishery, Port of Lancaster Smokehouse and the Chilli Pepper Company. Visitors to the event will have the chance to watch celebrity chefs cook in the open air on a specially designed grill and also sample some of their mouth-watering creations. The festival, organised by Liverpool-based SK Events, is celebrating its fifth year as one of the city’s top annual events. Denise Harris, Managing Director at SK Events, said: “It’s great to see how much the festival’s reputation has grown over the years and we are delighted to have had such strong interest from some of the country’s most respected and successful food stars. “The Liverpool Food & Drink Festival has been a highlight of the foodie calendar for the last four years, and we look forward to staging another fantastic event this year. Most of the city’s top restaurants and bars have already committed to taking part, as well as some of the region’s most interesting local producers.” Tom Herbert, fifth generation baker and one half of the Fabulous Baker Brothers, said: “We’re hugely excited about taking part in the Liverpool Food & Drink Festival. The city has a great vibe with a fantastic food and drink scene, which is all going to be transported to the middle of Sefton Park for the weekend.

“We really are passionate about carefully sourced, good quality seasonal ingredients and we are looking forward to working with local food suppliers and producers at the event.” Thousands are expected to flock to Sefton Park for the Liverpool Food & Drink Festival, which will showcase the best of the region’s food and drink scene. Visitors will have the chance to sample delights from more than 100 different restaurants, bars and producers, and pick up a few tips from the experts during a series of seminars and demonstrations. This year’s event includes a heavenly chocolate garden, where people can have a go at making their own chocolate. Liverpool’s most renowned real ale pub, the Ship & Mitre, will be hosting a beer festival, while Cono Sur vineyards and winery will be running some fantastic wine tasting sessions. There will be plenty of fun for budding young foodies with a dedicated children’s area, where young people can learn all about where their food comes from. As well as taking part in cookery demonstrations and workshops, children will also have the opportunity to meet some of the animals from Church Farm.

talks to local schools across the city, informing pupils about their own career paths and why they chose to become hairdressers. Rob Webb MD of Voodou, which has a Training Academy within the city centre said, “With today’s economic climate and increasing University fees, we are all aware how hard pupils are finding it to get themselves on to the career ladder. The campaign is aimed to make students aware of the varied industry of hairdressing and how possible it is to get started. Our new graduates have been giving them real life examples of how they got into the industry and taking questions from interested pupils. “For anyone who is looking at how to become a hairdresser Voodou’s academy offers high quality training for hairdressers and barbers in NVQ levels 1, right up to level 3. We have a proven track record in producing successful stylists who go on to have brilliant careers and our own super stylists are among the highest paid and trained hairdressers and barbers in the profession .” Lexi Manning, a Voodou Jnr stylist and graduate of their training academy commented, “Going into the schools was great as it gave me the chance to tell others about the benefits of being a hairdresser.

Since training with Voodou I’ve found a real passion for it, but often that isn’t the case and school children don’t have a clue what they want to do after they leave. Talking in the school’s felt great and it gave me the chance to share my advice and knowledge with people who could end up as happy as I am working within the hairdressing industry”. Saint Julie’s Catholic High School in Liverpool, who offer students the chance to study a National Vocational Qualification in Hair and Beauty therapy, were the first school to invite Voodou in to talk to their students. The campaign celebrated Voodou’s new service Voodou Jnr, which offers hairstyling to the younger generation of Liverpool from just £13. Last week they launched a

regional competition that will look for the salons first ever ambassadors for the new service, and win themselves free hairdressing for a year. To apply for Voodou’s Jnr of the Year competition visit www.facebook.com/voodou.

or family size pies make up just some of the selection. • Shaw’s Meats from Cumbria have a butchers stall (also at Lark Lane and Woolton markets) and specialise in game, meats and exotic meats. Also gluten-free meats and meat products. It was no surprise to bump into Mary Tremarco from the Sefton Arms pub who is pictured at the market with her two grandsons, brothers Patrick (12) and Luke (8). After all, the market is held in the Sefton Arms pub car park of which Mary is the landlady! Incidentally, Mary asked if we could remind everyone to please not park on the Sefton car park on the night before market day. Mary told us “I think the market is great, bringing both locals and people from outside West Derby to the village. It helps to bring the community together and make a difference. I was delighted with the support for the market, it all went very well and it can only get better. It was great to have the animals there and maybe there’ll be a few more next time”. Mary continued “With all the lows in the current media it does show a brighter side of West Derby and also shows that the surrounding areas have a lot to offer with the likes of Croxteth Park Heritage Society promoting Croxteth Park Hall which we are very lucky to have on our doorstep. Everyone in the area got involved, including the church who had a car boot sale with free coffee, and we at The Sefton offered up a mega-breakfast for just £4, tea and coffee included - great value. We’ve had nothing but positive reactions from all involved and I was really pleased to see The LINK there”. JOSEPH HUMPREY from West Derby pictured on page 18 enjoying his ice cream, mum Heather took her two boys along to the market and she told us how much she liked the market and thought it was really good for the community.

PREPARATIONS FOR THE PREM BEGIN FOR THE CROFT by Mick Titherington Stoneycroft players reported back for training at the beginning of July as they prepare for the forthcoming 201213 campaign in the LCPL Premier division. The good news is that all of the squad that won promotion have indicated they will be staying at the club and either have or will be signing forms in the near future. Manager John Leary oversaw a testing first session which the players not so much enjoyed but endured with good humour and high spirits. John was delighted to see Steve Dowd back in full training and heartened by the news that Carl Donohue is set to return and Eddie Baker has been given the OK to start running with the hope he will be back in action around October. All the other players have reported back with fit to play clearance. Pre-season friendlies, which because of ground availability will all have to be played away, include the annual fixture with Airbus, in the Bryan Jones Memorial Cup, South Liverpool and Waterloo GSOB leading up to the first Premier League game on 18th August. A number of players received awards which

Recipients included Liam Currie, Player of the Year; Paul Finnegan, Players’ Player of the Year; Jon Bowers, Supporters’ Player of the Year and Sam Kershaw, Young Player of the Year (all pictured at the event). Congratulations go to all of them. The club will be running a Veterans side this year and they will compete in the I Zingari Combination Veterans Division. Chairman Kenny Morrison wel-

comed this move and said “We are pleased with this development as we are anxious to extend our involvement with the community and widen our support. The expense of running a side in the Premier League is considerably increased and we are hopeful that we can gather support from local businesses or individuals to advertise in our programme and/or sponsor games”.
