Park mania gripped the town and Newsham Park was the first of three major parks created in a few years. Stanley Park followed in 1870 and Sefton Park in 1872. Newsham House, a spacious red-brick mansion, was leased for some years to a member of the council. In1868 it became the judges’ lodgings, which it remains to this day.

THE YELLOW HOUSE by Stephen Guy, West Derby Society

Over the years many members of royalty stayed at the house during key periods of Liverpool’s history. The then Duke of Edinburgh was accommodated there in 1874 when he laid the foundation stone for the Walker Art Gallery and opened the seamen’s orphanage on the opposite side of the park. In 1881 Edward Prince of Wales and his wife Alexandra stopped there while opening docks. The

the centre of what was to become one of Liverpool’s most popular public parks. It was known as the Yellow House because of the colour of its brick and stonework. This was 1850 and the area would soon be transformed as the town further encroached on the countryside. The scene was dominated by elegant Newsham House (pictured), built about 1786 by landowner Thomas Molyneux. His fami-

most famous guest was Queen Victoria when she launched the popular S h i p p e r i e s Exhibition in 1886. A cosy sitting room was specially created for her overlooking the private three acres of

grounds. The Shah of Persia (now Iran) stopped by in 1889. In 1892 the Duke of Connaught put his feet up during his stopover to switch on the Lake Vyrnwy water supply. The present Queen’s grandparents, as Duke and

Duchess of York, stayed at Newsham House in 1894. Land on the fringes of the park was developed with large villas that still give the area its character. When I was a boy I met a very old man who had helped carry planks for the

Half Cut Harry are an original 5piece rock band from Wavertree / Childwall. Their music is distinctive due to its melodic riffs and powerful rock vocals.

CALL PAUL LOCKSMITHS AT YOUR DOOR WITHIN ONE HOUR

HALF CUT HARRY The band consists of… Jonny Atherton - Lead vocals / Keyboards Mikey Forster - Rhythm guitar / Backing vocals James Butterworth - Lead guitar Graeme Adcock - Bass guitar Kevin Lockhart - Drums / Percussion Formed in 2009, they were originally a 4-piece band created from the remaining members of The Lostboys. Tracks such as Heaven Help Me, and Broken were instantly popular, gaining local radio airplay and outings in local rock venues such as ‘The Krazyhouse’. In 2011 the addition of lead guitarist Jay injected new life into

the band and this resulted in several new songs including the awesome rift driven track ‘The Hatter’ which is a huge hit with fans. Many successful local gigs followed; The Lomax, The Zanzibar, The Coffee House and Cuffs to name but a few. Standing out as being different and unique when

compared to the predominantly Indie styles of other local bands and taking their influences from legends such as Guns and Roses, Bon Jovi, Muse, Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin, the band have gained a rapidly increasing loyal fan base following their live gigs. The future is looking exciting for H.C.H at the

moment. 2012 was topped off by the recording of the band’s 4-track EP, recorded in Parr Street Studios and as soon as the art work for this is completed, a launch night will follow. Half Cut Harry are also part of the line up at The Olympia on the 25th April for St Marks Hospital who pioneer in treatment for bowel cancer.

Mr Funny Dimples slumped in the battered armchair, put his feet on a stool and sighed deeply. It had been a particularly bad day. Several factors had led to his enforced retirement from the circus – age and rheumatism being just two. Audiences didn’t laugh any more. His final year had been a nightmare. It was 1932 and the impact of the talkies had seen more and more people heading for the evergrowing numbers of cinemas. People no longer wanted to huddle in a big top in Sefton Park when they could be pampered in a picture palace. He was 60 but felt he could go on keeping the paying public in stitches. However, he knew that clowns were only as good as their last pratfall. Col Silas Highjinks, the circus boss, summoned Mr Funny Dimples into his gaudilypainted caravan one evening after a particularly painful performance. The Colonel offered him a big cigar and

Supported by a small pension, he was elected honorary secretary of the League of the No Longer Adorable. This Liverpool-based charity looked after the needs of actors and entertainers who had fallen on hard times. That was five years ago. Things started well when he had discovered a latent talent for organising people and events. Cinema put more and more entertainers out of work as music halls and other live venues closed down. Bert still thought of himself as Mr Funny Dimples, referring to facial features revealed when he covered his face with white make-up. He shifted his feet off the stool and

gazed wistfully through the French windows looking over the lawn behind his lodgings. The sun was setting in a clear red-tinged Liverpool sky. What a day! First he had to sit through the planned comeback of Vera and her Amazing Poodles. In the afternoon he was collared by Harry Howden who insisted on playing his

Say you saw it in the LINK Happy Harmonica. This was followed by piles of paperwork. He was always saddened when he saw the miserable faces of entertainers off-stage and devised a plan. “Laughter is the best medicine,� he told the next meeting of League committee. To back it up, he announced the return of Mr Funny Dimples.

He secured a booking at a rundown suburban theatre only because he offered to perform for nothing. Mr Funny Dimples strutted about the stage, a mass of ruffles and bright colours. His antics raised a breeze of laughter from the well-oiled audience. He had planned his exit meticulously – disappearing in a

puff of smoke through a trap door. That was the last time anyone saw Mr Funny Dimples. A search of the theatre revealed no trace of the clown and he remains on the missing persons file to this day. • Read my next Strange Tale – Beyond the Dark Door - in the May Link.

Aimee Best, Dogs Trust Merseyside Rehoming Centre SRO, says: “Skip is a lovely little chap currently residing with us at Dogs Trust Merseyside. He is a typical terrier who is always on the go and full of beans. He loves to play with his toys, and go out on walks and loves being around people. Skip would benefit from a new home with someone who enjoys long walks and who isn’t out for too much of the day. Skip can be a bit excitable, so would prefer to live with children of 14 years old and above, as he has bags of energy. He does need some basic training so a new owner who would enjoy doing this would be ideal Skip is a really cute, happy little chap who, with the right love and care, would make a wonderful addition to a home.” If you think Skip is the perfect pooch for you, please contact Dogs Trust Merseyside on 0151 480 0660 or drop into the centre: Whiston Lane Liverpool L36 6HP, United Kingdom Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for over 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs each year through its network of 17 Rehoming Centres nationwide.

She says: “Walking through those doors was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, I was embarrassed and terrified that I was going to be the biggest person there. But I needn’t have worried because everyone there was so very friendly and welcoming. I’ve made so many friends there and their support and encouragement has been the best.

Not only has she won the best prize of all – a fitter, healthier, happier future altogether – she’s also won the group’s Greatest Loser 2013 prize for the member who’s lost the most weight – and all in just 10 months. Amanda says: “I feel like a new woman since losing weight – in fact, I look so different that people I haven’t seen for a while say they don’t recognise me! I feel happier and healthier, I’ve got more energy and I’m much more confident now too. Before I lost the weight I’d pretend I didn’t care that I was bigger than other people, but that just wasn’t true. I hated clothes shopping and just climbing the stairs would leave me out of breath. I felt awful. Now I just want to make up for lost time

LUCKY HORSESHOES

Horseshoes have been considered a symbol of good luck since the 4th century. In the past most people in Britain had a horseshoe hanging in their homes, especially above a door, as this was thought to keep the Devil away. In Britain horse-

shoes must be hung with the prongs facing upwards ‘or the luck will run out’. In many other countries it is the exact opposite; the horseshoe hangs with the prongs down so that the luck will pour out on to you. Horseshoes are made of steel, iron, or aluminium and there are many different kinds to suit the need

To advertise see page TWO or work of the horse. The person who constructs the shoes is the farrier and s/he specialises in making and fitting the shoes, whereas a blacksmith, by trade, crafts anything made out of metal. It is traditional to give a bride a horseshoe on her wedding day, and how much better to give a ‘real’ one, rather than a plastic or cardboard imitation. Maureen Bevan has specialised for many years in the supply of decorative horseshoes and told The LINK: “I have been working with horseshoes for many years. I collect them from a farrier then clean and paint them. They are then person-

alised and decorated to your own specification. Horseshoes are always recognised as good luck symbols and make unusual and personal presents. My horseshoes have proven popular for

new homes, special birthdays, anniversaries, exam congratulations, and of course for weddings. They are boxed and delivered (within a reasonable distance) for just £10.

machine and you will surprise yourself with what you can achieve. Realistic - Don’t set yourself the goal of losing 5 stone in a week. Do not expect miracles but do expect gradual change. It’s long journey but you will get there. Time - Set yourself a timescale so you are working towards something and have a deadline to achieve it. If you just have an open goal then you won’t push yourself to achieve it, set deadlines and be your own boss. Good Luck

My number one tip for starting out is to be realistic, too many people set themselves crazy goals in such a short space of time. It’s not surprising when you see celebrity magazines with headlines of someone losing 7 stone in a week. Use the SMART approach: Specific - make sure your

goals are specific to you and your capabilities. Don’t follow somebody else’s programme or regime. Measurable - Take measurements so you can keep track of your progress. Ditch the scales as these only tell you how heavy you are, they do not tell you if this weight is from fat or muscle. Take measurements of your waist, hips, thighs, arms etc. I would recommend fortnightly results. Achievable - You can achieve things that you don’t think you’re capable of. Your body is a powerful and amazing

SOUTH STAY ON COURSE by Jim Stanway Despite a 4-3 home defeat against title rivals Mallaby, South Liverpool FC remain on course for promotion to the first division of the West Cheshire League, after three straight wins against teams in relegation danger.

down after goals from Tom Kinsella and Alex Woodcock. An equaliser from Woodcock looked to have got the team something from the game after hitting the woodwork three times but the fast Mallaby forwards were always a danger and grabbed a fourth near the end.

The defeat to Mallaby was, ironically, one of South’s best performances for some time, dominating the second half after going in at half time 3-2

Since then, South have not been entirely convincing but have eventually eased past Mossley Hill Reserves, AFC Bebington Athletic and

Marshalls. A 4-1 win against Mossley Hill saw goals from Tom Kinsella, Cameron Dalton and two from centre back Andrew Tull. A 2-1 win at AFC Bebington saw Alex Woodcock score twice, his second coming with only 10 minutes to go. A 5-3 win at home to Marshalls saw the team come from 3-1 down with only 20 minutes to go. A triple substitution provided the necessary spark as South completely dominated the final phase with a goal from

Gary Pollard and a hat-trick from Alex Woodcock, the club’s leading scorer with 24 goals. The reserves have been preparing for a league cup semi- final at the time of going to press and have an outside chance of promotion. Despite a 3-2 loss at Neston Nomads with two goals form Pat Kelly, two wins over relegation candidates, and other results elsewhere, have left the team with a chance of

getting into the top two. A 30 win at Upton AA Reserves with goals from Dean Sayer, Kieran Parker and Adam Brittles and a 7-1 home win against bottom club Ellesmere Port Reserves with goals from Sharif Yusuf, two from Francis Evans, Pat Kelly, James Gaskill, Adam Brittles and Gerard Forde produced six welcome points.

have easily qualified for the league cup competition quarter finals, including a youth team record 12-0 win over hapless Brookvale United. The resignation of Ramsbottom United has given the team an advantage in the league competition with only one win required from the last three league games, albeit against our main rivals, Bootle and Gateacre.

The youth team have had a very disrupted season but

Here’s our top goalscorer Ally Woodcock with 23 goals including a hat trick on Saturday 16th March.

STONEYCROFT FC - RECENT RESULTS TELL A SAD TALE After a bright start to 2013 with two consecutive victories, the optimism generated from those games soon dissipated as a run of four straight defeats has seen the club eliminated from two cups and sink to the bottom of the league. That said, the two games in the IZingari Cup and the George Mahon Cup (both against APH; lost 1-2 & 0-1) were evenly fought and could have quite easily gone the other way. The league game against East Villa was the archetypal game of two halves as Stoneycroft failed to get started in the opening half and conceded two poor goals, but in the second half showed spirit and determination that deserved greater reward than the one goal they

managed to pull back. Last week’s game against Red Rum was a sorry tale of woe. Played on a cold, wet and miserable March day, Stoneycroft’s performance was one that matched the weather. Having taken the lead on 15 minutes after a reasonably bright start, Red Rum started to boss the midfield and, coupled with an inability by Stoneycroft to retain possession, it only become a matter of time before Red Rum took control and they eventually run out 41 winners to extend Croft’s losing run. To complete a miserable afternoon Dylan Robinson, making his first full start for the club, sustained a broken leg and will be out for the rest of the season. We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and hope he is soon back playing.
