Two brothers saw the potential of the area and theirforesight resulted in the development of the former sleepy stop on the coach road out of Liverpool. Richard and Paul Barker were early 19th century entrepreneurs who took risks and become very successful. They were attracted to Old Swan because

of large amounts of sandstone and clay needed for construction as Liverpool grew rapidly. Originally from Huyton, they became builders who also owned quarries, brickworks and other enterprises.

The brothers’ quarries once dotted the area, supplying stone for all types of building from churches to houses, before being

Once there were three Swan inns at the junction of Prescot and Broadgreen Roads and to avoid confusion locals called them the Old, Middle and Lower Swans.

HEALTH AND BEAUTY LINK SERVICES LINK WHAT’S ON STRANGE TALES employed specialist French workers to help compete with highquality continental glass. Broadgreen Road, originally called Petticoat Lane, was used by coaches between Liverpool and London. May Place (pictured) is one of the oldest surviving Liverpool merchant’s houses, build about 1768 when the town started its first direct coach services to the capital. At this time my ancestor Peter Guy was Liverpool’s only postman and stage coaches carrying the mail were an important part of his life. May Place, recently restored to its original appearance and

now used by a housing association, has had many roles in its long history. When first built it would have enjoyed extensive views across the surrounding countryside. Old Swan businessman and historian James Hoult wrote in 1913 that it was a Catholic Reformatory for Girls: “It is directed by Sister of Charity and is doing good work.” He added that previous occupants included a slave-trader married to an Indian princess and a gentleman who had 20 children. The well-known Papayanni shipowning family resided there for a time. Another resident al-

A LETTER FROM COUNCILLOR STEVE RADFORD (Chairman, Tuebrook & Stoneycroft Youth Panel) Dear West Derby Link: “Thank you for the terrific and positive publicity you gave our summer youth programme. You will be delighted to know that as a consequence of additional funding from our panel and positive publicity from the likes of yourselves, Peter Lloyd alone saw the

number of young people signing up for summer activities treble on the comparable period last year. The sessions from football, swimming to dance and drama were taken up by over a thousand of our young people. This was so successful we will be launching a half term programme for later in the year. We would like to thank the team from St

Andrews who ran a course to deal with alcohol issues relating to young people and this course will be run later in the year. Big thanks to Positive Futures and West Derby Sea Cadets for sponsoring the innovative scuba diving courses. On Monday evenings we now have a weekly youth drama group at Tuebrook Hope Centre, Buckingham

Road, kindly funded by the Eleanor Rathbone Trust and associates and additional Youth Club drop-in activities will be taking place at Tuebrook Community Centre, Marlborough Road. It was really helpful having West Derby Link promoting some of the positive news for our communities and opportunities our young people”.

SUMMER CAMP FOR MERSEYSIDE CADETS Air Cadets from three squadrons in Merseyside Wing have recently returned from a fantastic week long camp at Nesscliff Army Training Camp, Shropshire. The sixty cadets from 1982 (Huyton) Squadron, 1123 (Hooton Park) Squadron and 400 (Birkenhead) Squadron experienced a varied array of activities from clay pigeon and full bore

shooting to climbing, archery and even a full day exercise, that allowed the cadets to put into practice all of the camouflage and concealment skills they had be taught throughout the week. Combined with this training programme there was also a trip to n e a r b y R A F Shawbury for the cadets to visit the various areas of the station including the Fire Section, Central Air Traffic Control School and Number 705

Squadron of the Defence Helicopter Flying School.

1982 (Huyton) Squadron’s Training Officer, Sergeant Greg Jennings, commented; “This was the first year that this camp has been run and it is safe to say it won’t be the last. The cadets thoroughly enjoyed themselves and cannot wait for next year’s camp!” he continued “On behalf of the cadets I would like to thank all of the staff, most notably Pilot Officer Iain

August. Characteristically, Colette faced up to this with courage, character, dignity and spirit but the fact that we have lost her so suddenly and at such a relatively young age has left us all feeling rather like a tsunami has torn through our

lives. Colette was a free spirit who loved nature and the arts, especially literature, languages and history, and when Dawn and I started the LINK back in 2006 Colette immediately offered her services in whatever capacity we

might require. As was typical of her, she did not want paying for any of this. Over the years, she has helped with the checking of editorial and has written a huge number of features in the LINK about a wide-ranging variety of topics and

STRANGE TALES

YE SHALL NOT PASS by Anton Valdemart

It was a bright, fresh day afterthe clearing storm and the sun’s rays danced on the trees, bushes and crops. The well-trodden path wandered up and down through pleasant countryside. Roderick Meade was on a mission. It was 1580 and his master, Sir John Cunningham, had entrusted him with an important business order with a leading Liverpool merchant. Following the heavy rain, Roderick decided to avoid the potholed road and take the cross-country route he knew well. He clutched the leather satchel containing the documents closely to his side as he reached the brow of the hill.

The port could be seen in the distance dominated by its largest building, Liverpool Castle. Roderick enjoyed the fresh breeze that had sprung up and walked briskly on. The footpath now approached a private estate bounded on all sides by high sandstone walls. An elegant gateway loomed into view, its ornamental iron gates closed. Roderick had been this way many times and was accustomed to opening the gates before continuing along the path bounded on both sides by dark

shrubbery. He was dismayed to find the gates firmly locked and rattled them noisily. A squat figure approached from within the gates, dressed in fine clothes and sporting a large gold chain that glittered in the sunshine. The man wore a brimmed hat and doublet and hose of excellent quality. He stopped on the other side of the gates and Roderick asked to be admitted. “I am A l d e r m a n Hummingbird and ye shall not pass,” said the man pompously. “This path is open

to all and has been used for generations,” replied Roderick. “Ye shall not pass. The path is now closed because of the fearsome griffin which is a danger to one and all.” Roderick stifled his laughter and protested: “The griffin was feared in my great-grandfather’s time but is no more.” The Alderman gave a shrug, turned on his heels and walked majestically away along the path. Roderick headed off but as he did so saw two large eyes scrutinising him from within the depths

of the shrubbery. He was much delayed by having to make a diversion around the estate but completed his mission by nightfall. A month later he was given a similar task by his master. This time he found the gates unlocked with no sign of Alderman Hummingbird. Roderick warily passed through and walked uneasily along the path. Dark clouds raced overhead and an eerie breeze ruffled the sinister shrubbery. Then he saw two large bloodshot eyes staring at him intent-

HALLOWE’EN – THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT!! by Colett McKenna It’s that time of year again – but Hallowe’en (orEve 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 “duck-apple” or “apple-bobbing”, which can be great fun for all the family, and every

C&K

home should have it’s own jack-o-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.

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 considera b l e m o n e y spinner around the globe.

Teenagers love the horror films and fancydress parties which have now become so popular and there is another cross-cultural reference

So, however you choose to celebrate, we at The Link wish all our readers a very happy and enjoyable Hallowe’en!

Endurance athletes and others training at high levels may benefit from the addition of carbohydrate and electrolyte containing beverages during and post exercise to maintain optimal levels of hydration.

won’t impact performance, higher levels of dehydration have a significant negative impact on exercise performance, particularly for endurance athletes. High levels of dehydration also increase an athlete’s risk of heartrelated illness.

STONEYCROFT SEEK NEW BOSS AFTER SHOCK RESIGNATION by Mick Titherington continued from page 28 the man of the match award. The first goal came when substitute Mick Kearns latched on to an excellent through ball and delightfully lobbed the ball over the advancing goalkeeper. The second came from the boot of last season’s top scorer Mike Kinney with a beautifully crafted curler in to the top corner of the Pinewoods’ net. This season’s new signings are beginning to make their mark with improving displays from Brian Porter and Jack Kelsall whilst youngster Callum Walker is showing great potential. Sadly the ‘Croft’ could not manage a result against a powerful Waterloo Dock side when the teams met at Maiden Lane the following week. A nicely worked move and a

clinical finish saw the ‘Dock’take the lead after three minutes raising fears amongst the home crowd. However the new found determination saw the home side weather the early storm to complete a competitive first half. The second period was a more evenly fought contest as the home side endeavoured to rescue the situation only to see a defensive lapse allow the visitors to net a second and secure all three points. Impressive first appearances from new signings Paul Jewell and James Cowhig, both coming on as second half substitutes, were among the positives to take from the game for the Maiden Lane crew. Next week’s fixture sees South Liverpool as the visitors in a first round Liverpool Challenge Cup encounter.

SOUTH GET OFF TO A FLYER by Jim Stanway Despite having an exacting start to the season, South Liverpool FC have had an excellent August, with both the first team and the reserves heading theirrespective divisions on at least one occasion. South started their f i r s t e v e r We s t Cheshire League first division season with a comfortable 3-0 home win against fellow promotees Mallaby, with goals from captain Adam Rood, centre forward Cameron Dalton and midfielder Elliott Burnett. With a striker shortage in the next game against rivals Maghull, the team struggled to break down a revamped Maghull team and, getting caught twice on the break, lost 3-1. However, an excellent 2-0 win at Vauxhall

Motors Reserves, with a first competitive goal for new striker Carl Gargan, and a comprehensive 5-0 home win over Upton AA with a hat-trick from the pacy Gary Pollard, put the team at the top of the league. Further wins by 21 at home to champions Heswall and 2-0 at Ashville saw a 3point gap open up at the top of the table. However, a 5-2 defeat at Cammell Laird Reserves, where several defensive errors proved fatal, and a free Saturday on 14 September saw the team relinquish their lead at the top with main rivals Maghull winning three games in the same time period. Nevertheless, such a start is better than could have been predicted as the team now start their Challenge Cup campaign at

Stoneycroft. The reserves have had a great start to their season and head the table at the time of writing, with seven wins out of eight games in the West Cheshire League third division, scoring 33 goals in the process. They recorded a superb 4-2 win at Ford Motors on the opening day of the season (against opposition

who were last season playing in the premier division of the Liverpool County Premier League). Two goals from Curtis Cummins on his return to the club and one each from Francis Evans and James Welsh saw the team get off to a cracking start. A close 2-1 win at home to Belfry, with goals from Cummins and midfielder Neil

Roach, followed an easy 9-2 win at lowly Upton AA Reserves with hat-tricks for Cummins and Paul Wilson. A 2-0 defeat at Bootle Reserves, where the team ended the game with nine men, has been the only blip. The following games all saw comprehensive wins; a 31 home win against Merseyside Police,

with another two goals from Cummins; a 5-2 home win against Neston Nomads, with two goals from last season’s youth team striker Sharif Yusuf; a 6-1 home win against Marshalls Reserves, with a further two goals from Yusuf, and a 4-1 home win over Chester Nomads Reserves with two goals for Alex Woodcock, last sea-

son’s leading first team goalscorer, on his return from injury and holiday.

lowed by a 1-1 home draw with West Kirby, with another goal from Craig Byrne.

The youth team, an entirely new squad of players, most of whom had won the Tuebrook Junior Under-16s title last season, have started without a win to date. A close 3-2 def e a t a t Va u x h a l l Motors, with goals from Craig Byrne and Jamie Clair, was fol-

The club’s ladies team have played their very first league game under the club’s name but, unfortunately, lost a nine-goal thriller 54 with the team’s striker Claire Piercy scoring all four of the team’s goals to put her name into the club’s record books.

Leary was forced to relinquish the post because of pressing business commitments and he felt he could not devote the time necessary to do justice to the manager’s role. The Club has already commenced the search for a replacement and have advertised the post. In the meantime Kenny Morrison and Mick Titherington will fill the gap in a caretaker capacity. On the playing front after a series of reversals the team recorded their first victory of the campaign scoring twice in the last ten minutes to come from behind at Pinewoods to take all three points in a first class team display.
