PARK PARADES by Stephen Guy, West Derby Society

The elderly couple hired a horse-drawn trap for a drive around Newsham Park to enjoy the fresh air and scenery. At noon Mr and Mrs Campion, of 91 Heyworth Street, Everton, settled into their seats and set off at a pleasant canter along the drive. Suddenly things went horribly wrong. As the Liverpool Echo reported on 16 September 1889: “One of the wheels came off and the young man who was driving unaccountably released his hold of the reins. “The horse started off and carried on furiously down the road, precipitating the occupants of the conveyance to the ground. The elderly lady was badly hurt. The horse was ultimately secured in front of the Seaman’s Orphanage.” Newsham Park opened as public space in 1868 – it had originally been the private estate of Newsham House that still stands overlooking the rolling acres. Four fountains once graced the park. One, seen on a 1907

postcard, featured horses’ heads spouting water. For more than 200 years the land was owned by the Chorleys of Chorley who lost it after supporting Bonnie

Prince Charlie. The Crown sold the land to the Molyneux family, distant kinsmen of the Molyneuxs of Croxteth Hall. Thomas Molyneux built Newsham House. I have many fond memories of the park including firework displays, walking to work across snow-covered fields when the roads were impassable and having X-rays at the hospital in the 1960s. News items give a fascinating insight into Newsham Park’s Victorian heyday. The Liverpool Mercury reported in July 1880 that five-year-old Mary Holder gathered some buttercups, ate them and died later from irritant poisoning. In July 1884 two little girls, Ellen Bird and Elizabeth Ward, appeared before magistrates for

breaking branches off plants and trees. They had been warned by the park keepers who told the court that during the school holidays plants were greatly damaged by children. Both girls were each fined 2s 6d (12.5p) plus costs and ordered to pay 2s 6d damages. In October 1896, 18-year-old Thomas Watson travelled to the park from his home in Prescot to enjoy a Saturday game of football. A heavy thunderstorm broke out and he was killed by a flash of lightning. His clothes were torn to shreds. • Join the West Derby Society at the West Derby Courthouse (built 1586) in the Village - open 2 pm to 4 pm every Sunday, April to October.

Just a reminder… West Derby Village Market Saturday 2nd June 9am-2pm

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Although we can show our appreciation of dear old dad any day of the year, it’s nice to know that there’s a special day devoted to dads everywhere. In many countries around the world, including Britain, America, Canada and much of Asia, Father’s Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June, which this year falls on Sunday 17th June. Like many other formal celebration days, “Father’s Day”, as we now know it, was started in the United States, when a lady named Sonora Smart Dodd was so touched by a Mother’s Day sermon she heard in 1909 that she decided to dedicate a special day to her own dad, William. The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19th 1910,

William’s birthday, and such a good idea was bound to catch on as people around the world wished to honour the devotion and love of their own fathers. So make 17th June really special for you and your dad! Whether it’s a card, present, or just some time spent together, have a lovely day. If you find yourself stuck for gift ideas, why not have a look here in The LINK. You may want to treat Dad to a lovely meal at one of the restaurants advertised or he may enjoy a great day out on a wonderful steam train journey through the countryside. See advert below. Have a great Father’s Day and best wishes to dads everywhere from all of us at The LINK. Pictured right: David Fisher and his great granddaughter Matilda.

with either the under 12’s or under 13’s teams was gathering round to witness one of the greatest sights in rugby, or in all sports in my opinion. The leader of the legendary Haka stepped up, and started the famous battle cry of the Haka, in the native New Zealand Maori language. None of us on the sidelines could understand what they were saying, but just to witness it was a brilliant experience.

guests definitely living up to all expectations. What made the event so special was that it was unknown to everyone until not long before we arrived at the ground to train. I certainly couldn’t wait to play and neither could anyone else. I arrived at the ground to see the touring New Zealand team in the distance. They were immediately recognisable by their country’s famous all-black rugby strip. Only minutes later, everyone involved

Martins Dance Centre

They were very friendly and told us a lot about their culture, which we all found very interesting, and I feel we all made some new friends, who we will hopefully see again one day. There were a few games to play after our talk with the New Zealand players. As in the previous matches, the rugby was excellent and all players were working very hard. Talking about hard, I’d like to thank the largest of the New Zealander for dump-tackling me so hard that I couldn’t move for five minutes! Fortunately, this was right at the end of the last match. After all the rugby, we all sat down, tired from all the hard work. But we couldn’t have let a brilliant side like New Zealand leave without a quick photo session and in a few years we’ll look back on it and remember a glorious Thursday evening of rugby.

Judith, who also lives in Woolton. takes up the story: “My neighbour Keith Dolphin spotted Ollie in his garden at about 7.45am. Ollie had cornered a fox under Keith’s garden table. The fox was terrified and eventually bolted with Ollie in hot pursuit. He then chased the fox Grand National Style over several garden fences before the poor thing got away. Keith was so quick to manage to photograph it! We were amazed that Ollie was so brave (he can be pretty fearless but he’s a big dope at home!) and I’m not sure what he would

have done if he had caught up with it! I have since told Ollie that fox-hunting is banned in this country but I’m not sure he was listening!”. Thanks for contacting us, Christine, and thanks for the great story and photo, Judith. We at the LINK really loved this story and please keep ‘em coming, readers!

Junior is a lovely young boy who loves to run and play, but also likes to have lots of cuddles and affection. He can walk with the odd doggy friend but we are looking for him to be the only pet in the home and new owners will have to keep him on a lead when there are new dogs around. Junior needs a home who can give him lots of exercise and training as he is such a lively young boy. He has already had a few homes and we want his next one to be forever. Junior is good with children but can be a bit too lively for very young ones, so we are looking for him to live with children over the age of 15 years. If you would like to offer a home to Junior, please call Dogs Trust Merseyside directly on 0151 480 0660 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk.

people of Liverpool took the Little Girl, her Uncle (and not forgetting the dog Xolo!) entirely to their hearts and the event has left a truly indelible memory. As most of our readers will now know, the event was staged to mark the centenary of the Titanic disaster and was inspired by an actual letter (which is in the Merseyside Maritime Museum) which 10 year-old Liverpool girl May McMurray wrote to her father William, a steward on the Titanic, days before the ship sank. The 30ft Girl and 50ft Uncle travelled separately around the city, with the Little Girl â&#x20AC;&#x153;waking upâ&#x20AC;? in Stanley Park on the Friday morning prior to commencing her walk through the city in search of her Uncle. They met at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dock on Saturday evening and there was hardly a dry eye to be witnessed at the emotional moment that they did meet up. The Giants bade Liverpool farewell as they sailed down the Mersey by barge on the Sunday afternoon at the conclusion of an unforgettable weekend.

ticipants to take part in the challenge, which involves being blindfolded whilst driving a fantastic Formula One simulator car. Guide dog owners and other visually-impaired people are also invited to have a go. The public are invited to attend the Open Day between 12noon and 3pm, and the attractions will include stalls, a bouncy castle, demonstrations and free micro-chipping for pet dogs! The simulator is a full size, genuine F1 car, but instead of an engine the car is equipped with a computer simulator allowing participants to sit in the car and drive on any F1 circuit in the world. The experience is very realistic (if there’s a bump in the track you will feel it in this car!) and is the nearest most individuals will get to actually driving an F1 car. It is not a computer game. Users will be expected to control the car on screen using steering, brakes and accelerator as they would in an actual car, but wearing a blind fold! Penny Williams, Guide Dogs Engagement Officer explains: “For many blind people, this will be the first and perhaps only time they will ever drive a Formula One car. It’s a unique opportunity for them to savour the thrill and sensation of driving. Whilst for blindfolded participants, it’s a chance to experience how difficult everyday tasks can be without the benefit of sight. We’d love to see lots of people taking part and raising money for Guide Dogs, so that blind and partially-sighted people can continue to experience the life-changing benefits that having a guide dog can bring.” Participants must pre-book to take part in the sponsored drive. For further information, please contact Guide Dogs’ Liverpool Mobility Team on 0118 983 8749. For full details of the charity’s work, log-on to www.guidedogs.org. uk

“One small step for…” Have you ever been let down? Well, this time it will be different and it will indeed be for someone - the members of Fazakerley Special Needs Projects that is! This time you’ll be let down carefully and slowly, all one hundred and fifty feet of the Anglican Cathedral. Fazakerley Special Needs Project (FSNP) are looking for volunteers to join them on Saturday, 11th August from 8.30 ‘til 10.00am and help raise much needed funds. Volunteers will get sponsored by friends, neighbours and families. Perhaps their community or work col-

leagues can also put their names forward to sponsor them to arrive safely at the bottom. Think of it, a lovely view forward, “above us only sky” and the adrenalin buzz as you step off and freefall abseil down the side of a unique and splendid building.

Organised by the Cathedral and Awesome Walls this is an unmissable opportunity. For further information please contact: Anne or Eamonn on 521-7569 or email fsnp89@hotmail.com

ALDER FC First Team Promotion by Peter Harrison In a great end to the season the first team have been promoted to the first divison of the Liverpool County Premier League following their 2-0 win against Collegiate OB Reserves. Tom Mangan and Peter Jones were the marksmen who saw the team through. Congratulations must also go to the under-11side who play on a Sunday in the Belle Vale League, as they won the David Berry Cup with a 3-2 victory against Melwood Mags. In a great game the match was clinched when Jack Naylor scored a great free-kick in the dying minute, this complemented two great goals from James Bradshaw. The ladies team are looking for players next season - they play on a Sunday afternoon. Any players interested in joining the squad should contact Alan Gleave by email: alan.gleave@btinternet.com Next month will see my write-up of the Sunday Vets Umbro Cup Final - good luck to all players and spectators for the 27th May.

SOUTH ACHIEVE TWO LEAGUE TITLES

by Jim Stanway South Liverpool FC’s move to the West Cheshire League has proved successful with the first team comfortably winning the third division title after defeating their only serious rivals, Helsby, 2-1 in a tense encounter on 21 April. A tremendous goal by Gary Pollard achieved the vital win, allowing the team to relax with successive 4-0 wins over Mersey Royal and Chester Nomads to win the title by nine points. This was South’s fifteenth successive away win, completing a 100% away record which is a club record dating back to 1935. The club’s reserve team won the I-Zingari Combination second division title by a whopping 15 points after their main rivals Real Stadium dropped a succession of points at the end of the season.

Stadium saw the team drop points for only the second time all season, the equaliser being leading scorer Mitchell McNally’s 29th of the season. The club now hope to move the reserve team into the third division of the West Cheshire League next season, subject to league approval. South’s youth team finished a very creditable third in the West Cheshire League youth division, despite all the players being under 17, and reached the final of the league cup, losing 1-0 to league champions Lower Breck

Boys in the final at Prescot Cables FC. The pick of South’s junior teams was undoubtedly the under 14s who, under Phil Briscombe, achieved a league and cup double in the Belle Vale Junior League, defeating runners-up Bootle on penalties in the league cup final after a breathless 4-4 draw. The under 11s, under Steve Jones, were on the receiving end of a league and cup double to Netherley Wood Lane Legion, losing the cup final 3-2 after extra time.

458 QUEENS DRIVE, STONEYCROFT, LIVERPOOL L13 0AS

STONEYCROFT GO UP - BUT NOT AS CHAMPIONS! by Mick Titherington Stoneycroft finished their campaign with a comfortable win over a spirited Alumni side which meant they topped the table and assured themselves of playing Premiership football next season but whether they stayed there and went up as champions was no longer in their hands. Having completed their fixtures and with the two clubs below them capable of overtaking them should either win all of their remaining fixtures this was a real nail-biter for the Stoneycroft team that had led the division for most of the campaign. The two teams, however, had to play each other and a draw would mean the championship going to Stoneycroft. Alas, this crucial fixture saw West Everton Xavs run out 4-1 winners over Liverpool North to pip the unlucky Crofters to the title by two points. Stoneycroft were left to rue the draws against Waterloo GSOB and Leyfield towards the latter end of the season as they were games in which they had enough chances to win three or four games. However, these are the ‘what ifs?’ and ‘if onlys?’ that every team ponders after a hard fought season. Although missing out on top spot the Stoneycroft management and players can be nothing but pleased with themselves as they return to the Premiership after one season in the lower division and this time they look better equipped to deal with the pressures that come with playing at the top level. Success has come at a price, though, with a long list of serious injuries to cope with. Most teams would have crumbled with the loss of such star names but credit to those who deputised and contributed to the promotion push. We wish Eddie Baker, Steve Dowd and Carl Donohue who all sustained breaks to leg, cheekbone and foot respectively full and speedy recoveries and hope they will be able to resume their places in the Stoneycroft line up in the near future. Overall assessment? A great manager, a great set of lads and a great season! Good luck in 2012/13!!
