COMING SOON TO CLUBMOOR

A NOTE FROM THE CHAIR

W

hen I was 12 I dressed up and took to the stage to sing a terrible version of ‘Food Glorious Food’ from the musical Oliver for our annual scouts show. I think my parents forced me into it; With a voice like mine I can’t for one minute think I would have done it voluntarily!

In contrast, the standout moment of the past few months is our recent fashion show, where a group of 10-12 year olds confidently strolled onto a catwalk and wowed the audience. They came up with the idea for a MyClubmoor fashion show themselves, and went on to to make some fabulous dresses and model them on our makeshift catwalk (without any awful singing involved…). With over a hundred people cheering, I hope the young people remember it well; I know I will! Looking through this issue of MyClubmoor, glorious food seems to be a bit of a running theme. The allotment challenge in the summer showed off the dedication and creativity of the growers and produce-makers of Clubmoor. The judges were really impressed by the quality of the entries, and I’ve heard that Gwen’s ‘best in show’ chutney was a taste sensation! I took the time to visit Grandison and Marlborough Road allotments in the run-up to the show, and some of the plots are simply

incredible. I left with the impression that the allotments are hugely valuable, and provide so much more than just fruit and vegetables. They build a sense of pride, bring people together into community, and promote all-round wellbeing. One proud allotment owner described his patch beautifully: ‘a little piece of heaven on earth’. It was Oliver, of course, who famously said “Please, sir, I want some more”, when he didn’t have enough to eat. In this issue, we are highlighting the terrific work of the local food banks in supporting those who struggle for food in our communities. The North Liverpool Food Bank has its headquarters in Clubmoor, and many of the volunteers and people who donate food come from our area. In this issue we’ll tell you all about their ‘Every One Counts’ campaign, through which they will tell people the reality of local food poverty and extend their work supporting people out of crisis. Our vision at MyClubmoor is to bring together all the committed, active and inspirational people in the community who are working towards raising local aspirations and making Clubmoor the best that it can be. Based upon the past few months, we have every reason to be optimistic and proud of where we’re from – Clubmoor’s community is amazing, we do things well, and there’s some incredibly special people doing wonderful things to make a difference every single day! Kevin Peacock, MyClubmoor Chairperson

WHAT AN AUTUMN GRANDISON AWARDED LIVERPOOL’S BEST ALLOTMENT

E

very year, the ALA (Association of Liverpool Allotments) holds a competition to find the best allotments across the city. This year, the ALA welcomed twenty-five different allotments to the challenge, with 81 people competing. We here at MyClubmoor are thrilled to announce that the allotment on Grandison Road beat all the others, coming out at first place. The allotments are judged on five different things: cleanest foot path, standard of crops, variety of crops, allotment design and best water system. John Doolan, one of the people who represented Grandison, was extremely proud of what the allotment had accomplished and commended the work ethic that he and his fellow gardeners had achieved. He said

‘TO FINISH 6TH OUT OF 81 ENTRANTS IS A FANTASTIC ACHIEVEMENT, AND IT’S GREAT THAT THE JUDGES ACKNOWLEDGED ALL THE TIME AND EFFORT WE HAD SPENT MAKING THE ALLOTMENT SO GREAT. IT FILLS ME WITH SUCH PRIDE.’

‘A SPECIAL MENTION ALSO HAS TO BE MADE TO RONNY AND LAWRENCE FROM GRANDISON, WHO FINISHED 2ND AND 5TH RESPECTIVELY. THE PAIR OF THEM DESERVE IT BECAUSE THEY KEEP THEIR ALLOTMENTS TO SUCH A HIGH STANDARD, AND THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLES THEY PRODUCE ARE OUTSTANDING. I AM OVERWHELMED WITH 6TH PLACE, AND CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE MY ALLOTMENT EVEN GREATER IN TIME FOR NEXT YEAR.’ Ronny, who came 2nd this year, has managed an allotment at Grandison for six years. Ronny is a magnificent gardener, who came 1st place in the Liverpool Allotment Challenge in 2013. As a former brick layer, his allotment uses lots of brick walls. He also uses landscape garden techniques for a truly special piece of land. Recently, the allotments have had a sudden surge in popularity, with local residents coming forward to start an allotment of their own.

Ronny had some advice for people who are starting out and finding their green thumbs:

‘YOU HAVE GOT TO BE COMMITTED TO THE CAUSE, BUT ITS WORTH IT. IT CAN BE A TIMELY PROCESS ENSURING THAT ALL OF YOUR PRODUCE IS RECEIVING THE KEY NUTRIENTS IT NEEDS, BUT ONCE YOU GET INTO A ROUTINE THE END RESULT IS SO REWARDING. I GIVE THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLES I GROW TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, AND THEY’RE ALWAYS TELLING ME HOW WONDERFUL THE PRODUCE IS.’ Allotment holders are always on hand to assist newcomers by giving them taster sessions to get them started. If you want to get into gardening, you can contact Jeff by emailing grandisonallotments@gmail.com for more information on getting an allotment of your own.

TEA & TALK FOR WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY As someone who suffers daily with depression and anxiety, who has worked in dementia care and is currently offering peer support to people with similar issues to myself, mental illness and its fallout is something I witness every day. I decided to take up the challenge of the Mental Health Foundation’s national Tea & Talk campaign and arrange my own event. MHF sent out a pack including quizzes, info graphs, tips and advice. I also asked the wonderful people of St Andrew’s Church for their help and support, which came in bucket loads!

O

ctober 10th was World Mental Health Day. With 1 in 4 residents suffering some kind of mental illness each year, and suicide being the biggest killer of males under 45, Liverpool came together to put on a number of events aimed at raising money and awareness for mental health charities.

The event itself took place on Saturday 17th October in St Andrew’s Church Hall. There was a great mix of patients, professionals, friends and families. Around 30 people attended altogether (and twice as many cakes…) with an amazing £95.60 being made for the Mental Health Foundation. My main objective, however, was always about more than the money. My main aim for this event was to get people talking; about their own experience of mental

3

illness, offering their support to others, and sharing information about the services and support lines in and around the city. It is only by talking about our health issues (physical AND mental) that we will remove the stigma attached to them. If you or someone you care about is lonely, isolated, anxious or has low mood then please don’t suffer in silence. Contact St Andrew’s Community Network for a referral to our Wellbeing team, which offers a range of services from peer support groups for mental illness, chronic pain (my wonderful group), debt advice, 1-2-1 peer/life coaching and much, much more. For more information on the services mentioned in Kerry’s story please contact Tracy at tracy@standrewslive.org.uk or call St Andrew’s Community Network on 0151 226 3406.

ALLOTMENT CHALLENGE ALLOTMENT CHALLENGE

O

n the 23rd August 2015, MyClubmoor hosted its first annual Allotment Challenge at Grandison Road allotments.

Allotments have soared in popularity over the recent years, with many local residents eager to have their own patch of land. Gardening and growing is a wonderful age-old past-time amongst young and old, allowing people to find their green thumbs and express their creative flair through their unique arrangement of plants, herbs and vegetables.

Tina Bryne Rolls was one of the judges tasked with selecting the winners for this year’s allotment challenge. She was chosen to judge the competition based upon her lifelong passion for gardening and experience with allotments.

When I asked Tina what she looked for in an entry, she said

There was a competitive feeling in the air at the allotment challenge, with many local residents busily making last minute adjustments to their allotment entries. There was a great community spirit and something for everyone: even children got to take part in the fun by making models out of fresh vegetables.

Entries for the allotment challenge were judged by five representatives from the ALA (Association for Liverpool Allotments). The prize categories included best preserve, best vegetable and best flower display. Exhibitors had the option of donating their produce to North Liverpool Food Bank after the event, and many preserves were sold to raise money for charity.

‘WHEN I’M JUDGING A JAM OR CHUTNEY, I CHECK IF IT’S WELL SEASONED AND THAT IT’S PACKED WITH FLAVOUR. CONSISTENCY IS ALSO IMPORTANT. IF YOU CAN MAKE A DELICIOUS PRESERVE WITH A GREAT TEXTURE, THEN YOU’RE WELL ON YOUR WAY TO WINNING’

‘WHEN IT COMES TO JUDGING FRUIT AND VEGETABLES, I EVALUATE THE LENGTH AND THE WIDTH OF THE PRODUCE, CHECK 4

WHETHER IT HAS DAMAGE CAUSED BY WEEDS OR INSECTS AND MAKE SURE IT HAS A LOVELY BOLD RIPENESS’

The event would not have been possible without the work of Paul Rotherham and his team. Paul is the ex-chairman for Grandison allotments, and it is because of him that the Allotment challenge was introduced to our local community.

CHALLENGE, WHICH WILL BE HOSTED AT MARLBOROUGH ALLOTMENTS, AND MYSELF AND THE GARDENING COMMUNITY ARE ALL REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.’

When asked about how he came up with the concept, Paul said

‘I WAS INSPIRED BY A TV PROGRAMME ABOUT GARDENING, AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GREAT THING TO BRING TO OUR COMMUNITY. I WANTED TO GET THE WIDER COMMUNITY INVOLVED TOO, AS WE HAVE MORE ALLOTMENTS IN THE AREA, INCLUDING MARLBOROUGH AND WALTON HALL.’

Paul took great pleasure in watching all the great work carried out on the allotments. The impact of the challenge has increased the profile of the allotments and has seen a much wider audience take an interest. Some of the allotment community are even talking about putting on an occasional market to sell fresh produce from the allotment to local people.

Preparations are now well underway and the deadline for entrants is fast approaching. If anyone would like to be considered for the allotment challenge next year, or would like to help out at the event, you can phone Lianne on 0151 226 3406 or email lianne@standrewslive.org.uk for more information. To rent an allotment would usually cost you around £59.00 per year, but if you are a pensioner, you can rent one for about £38.50 a year.

‘I WANT THE ALLOTMENT CHALLENGE TO HAPPEN EVERY YEAR IN THE HOPE THAT THE EVENT CAN CONTINUE TO FLOURISH. PLANS HAVE NOW BEGUN FOR THE NEXT

Overall, the first annual allotment challenge was a huge success. We at MyClubmoor are pleased that we encouraged the local community to adopt a healthier lifestyle and get together to improve the local environment. By organising such an event, it illustrates the togetherness of a community striving towards a common goal, and we hope to replicate the success at next year’s event at Marlborough allotments.

DOG SHOW DOG SHOW host, and during the break, he showed us some of the dog training that he does at Tuebrook Community Centre on Marlborough Road. The event is now in its 3rd year, and once again it was sponsored by Liverpool Mutual Homes. LMH helped to judge some of the classes, including the grand prize: “BEST IN SHOW”. One Clubmoor resident said “Best day of the year. I’ve been to every single one and it just keeps getting better! Well done to all involved.” Our Dog Show this year was a huge success, with more people attending than ever before. We had families who stayed all day to watch the show, with plenty of dogs taking part. We had all our favourite prize categories, including waggiest tail, best six legs and most obedient. In total, there were 16 winners, 15 rosette winners and 1 overall Best in Show. Pete from Merseyside Police was once again our

We can’t run our events without our amazing volunteers who work throughout the year to make sure all our events are successful. This year our stallholders included Pets for Therapy, Pets as Pals and Joeys Boxer Legacy, who support us on the day and always help get the message out that your pets are important to us, and we love to help you make sure they are happy, healthy, trained and loved.

“Makes me proud to be a resident of Clubmoor …. Amazing day” Our dog show wouldn’t be the same without our resident expert vets on hand. Vets for Pets were there for the 3rd year in a row, chipping puppies and checking out pooches for free. Local business owner John Edwards, who came to sell ice cream, also kindly donated a portion of his day’s take to the charities that were there on the day. We would also like to thank John and Emma who worked tirelessly all day making sure that everyone was well fed. The jacket potatoes that they made for everyone were absolutely scrumptious! We are already looking forward to next year’s show – if you’re interested in having a stall or helping out, please contact Lianne on 0151 226 3406 or email lianne@standrewslive.org.uk

BLUES AND REDS UNITE BLUES AND REDS UNITE TO HELP LOCAL COMMUNITY “It’s great that we can come together as food banks and supporters trusts to help people and families In Liverpool. When working together all things are possible including tackling food poverty. A special thank you to Ian at Spirt of Shankley and Andy and Dave at EST without their much needed help none of this would of been possible. Football has been a great way, to come together and make a change in our city”.

H

ere in Clubmoor, community is of the utmost importance to us. We love it when people put aside their differences and come together to help each other, which is why we love this story about Everton FC and Liverpool FC fans teaming up to fight poverty in North Liverpool. It all started back in October, when Liverpool supporter’s union Spirit of Shankly (SoS) and Everton Supporters Trust (EST) started appealing for food donations at the teams’ football stadiums. The appeal was a huge success, and hundreds of essential items, donated by kind-hearted fans, were distributed by local charities to families living on the poverty line across Merseyside. Fans donated wheelie bin-loads of food supplies at drop-off points around Goodison Park and Anfield before recent matches. The supplies were later rounded up into parcels and were distributed to families and individuals in the North Liverpool area who are in desperate need of help. SoS and EST have now set up collection points at Christ Church in Anfield, just opposite the ground, as well as nearby pubs Oakfield, Twelfth Man and Our Lady Immaculate Club. There are also collection points at LFC Supporters Club and St Luke’s Church near Goodison Park.

In a joint statement, Ian Bryne from the SoS and Dave Kelly from EST said: “We gain so much from the area and it is important we help local neighbourhoods by giving something tangible to those most in need.

“We are forming a unique partnership in football and putting rivalries aside to come together for the greater good of Merseyside.” They are also using #Hungerdoesnwearclubcolours Food bank supplies are running low, say the charities involved. They are calling on the public to donate items such as rice, pasta, cereals, biscuits, long-life milk, fruit juice, tinned meat and fish, toiletries and nappies. The 3 Trussell Trust Liverpool food banks have also come together to launch their new Everyone counts campaign. The campaign is looking to raise much needed funds to help move our food banks forward and help people out of crisis into stability, We have partnership backing from the Mayors hope fund and Liverpool Mutual homes who provide us with money and fresh produce. Vicky from North Liverpool food bank said

As well as food donations, you can make a monetary donation through the new www. justgiving.com/liverpoolfoodbanks or text HPHP66 to 70070 with your donation. If you would like to do your own fundraiser please contact Vicky or Lianne. Vicky@standrewslive.org.uk lianne@ standrewslive.org.uk Knowing the people of Liverpool, we here at MyClubmoor are sure that the generous donations will continue, and we will carry on supporting each other.

MORE CLUBMOOR ELLA RADFORD

I

n our last edition, we introduced you to Ella Radford:

Back in August 2014, we held our ‘Million Reasons to Love Clubmoor’ event, where we asked local people one question: “If we gave you £500, what would you use it for?”. Ella Radford, 10, came up with the fantastic idea to hold a MyClubmoor Fashion show, using clothing made from recycled materials that represented the MyClubmoor plan in fashion. MyClubmoor thought the idea was brilliant. They awarded Ella the money to do it, and in January 2015 MyClubmoor’s Lianne met with Ella and some of the other local children to start planning the event. The children worked all year making outfits, which were shown at the event in October. Ella’s friends and family all came together to help her out. Lilly, aged 9, Hannah Williams, aged 12, Rosie Jones, aged 10, Mia Gleeson, aged 11, and Isabella Beasley aged 8 all came together to get stuck in and make a difference. The kids did everything themselves, from the planning and making of their outfits, to designing the flyers and tickets. They looked at what My Clubmoor does in the community; the dog show, the newspaper, our upcoming energy and recycling project, our awards programme, our partners and ‘Clubmoor and St Andrew’s Community Network’ – home of North Liverpool Foodbank. They all made themselves an outfit based on each of these. We started the show with money dresses, that were designed to make a statement that not everything is about money, and the girls along with our very own Lianne McGinnes all took to the catwalk. Next was our dog show, and the girls, this time accompanied by Pat Hughes, all wore dogrelated costumes.

After this, outfits made from newspaper (guess which one they all used…) were shown, followed by outfits made from recycled materials in order to highlight the green energy project. As MyClubmoor works in direct partnership with St Andrews Community Network, this is where the girls next directed their attention. One of the services offered by them is the Hanger, which is similar to Foodbank. Clothes are donated for people who are going through financial and domestic difficulties with the aim of meeting the immediate needs of vulnerable people in our community. The girls, joined by Mark Ready and Andy Jones, showcased some of the brilliant clothing that has been donated. As part of their preparation, the girls all completed a fascinator workshop with the community group Emanuel Wesley, and all 6 of the girls (along with Kaitlin Owens aged 14, Hannah Owens aged 10 and Rebekah Owens aged 13) took to the catwalk to show off the glamorous hats they had made. Finally, our children wanted to highlight the importance of acceptance. MyClubmoor is successful because of our partnership work in the community: LMH sponsor some of our events, and the events themselves are made wonderful by all the arts and crafts stalls run by the community. Liz at Scarf Nation is one of those that has supported us over the years, and some of her amazing scarves were showcased by the girls. They finished the show with a final strut down the catwalk in their absolute favourite outfits. All in all, it was an amazing show by the girls, and they raised an incredible £187.39 for Foodbank’s life-changing Everyone Counts Campaign.

CLUBMOOR HISTORY OUR HISTORY

F

ollowing the death of the former Bishop of Liverpool (Francis James Chavasse, D.D.) in 1928, The Right Honourable Henry Morley Miller, Lord Mayor, decided to build a memorial to him. The Town Hall Scheme was launched with a stone carving in the Cathedral, and a new church was named after the deceased Bishop to pay respects. It was decided that Christ Church, Norris Green would be where this new Church and memorial hall would be built, because in just over 5 years the population had grown from 50 people to 10,000.

The Vicar of the Parish, the Rev. Edward Lomax, along with his reader, Mr. G. H. Harvey, set up a temporary building in the middle of this growing population where he gathered up local people for Sunday and weekday services. He also arranged Sunday Schools for the youngsters, usually in the homes of the parishioners themselves. When the district was finally placed into the care of the Curate in Charge, there was a staggering 600 children on the Sunday school rota! Unfortunately, the inhabitants of Liverpool were not as generous as the Lord Mayor thought they

would be, and the church stopped being able to sustain itself based on just donations from the community. The outstanding balance of £3,158, 14 shillings and ten pence was transferred from the Town Hall Fund into a 3 year building committee that was already set up in Norris Green. There is, unfortunately, not a lot of information available about the actual building of Christ Church, but we managed to dig up some dates that tell the story of Bishop Chavasse and the church dedicated to him.

You may have noticed that the last point doesn’t say that the church closed, and that’s because it didn’t: When the Reverend Helen Edwards was appointed as priest-in-charge, the congregation were more than ready to move away from simply keeping a building going and ready to start transforming themselves.

10

The congregation moved to Leamington Primary School where they continued to hold mass. After that, they converted the former vicarage into a Church Community Centre. The story is still not over: there is currently work going on to try and put a memorial on the site of the old church.

CATCHING UP WITH CAROL

H

ello everybody! Well, what can I say; it’s been a busy old season. We’ve had our annual dog show, which was once again a huge success. I managed the registration desk and it was a hectic but rewarding day; lots of positive feedback from you wonderfully beautiful people and happy dogs with waggy tails!

A couple of local children, after a workshop led by My Clubmoor, applied for a grant and were awarded a sum of money to run a fashion show all based around recycling. They worked really hard and put on an amazing show, raising £187.36 for Everyone Counts – a local foodbank initiative. Of course, being a total fashionista (lol) I would not have missed it for the world and I’m so glad I didn’t: the girls did an amazing job and it was a great way to spend a few hours with our local community whilst raising money at the same time. That day was really hectic for me; I run a small craft group on a Thursday evening, and one of our members had a tea and talk mental health event in aid of world mental health day running at the same time in the church hall. I managed to be there to support her, and then went next door immediately afterwards for the fashion show: Just another busy day in my very busy life!

THE DREADED WEIGH IN Well it’s Monday morning once again and its past after eight. I’m off to slimming club to see if I’ve lost any weight.

TWELVE STEPS Wow, can you tell me just what happened there And that was after only a ten minute share. My heart is still pounding and just missed a beat,

I know I may have been naughty just a little, not a lot.

Now it’s the time for me to stand on my own two feet.

But I don’t want the scales showing I’ve lost the plot.

I’ve begged, borrowed, stolen and lied,

So here goes, step on the scales, what that can’t be true! Its showing I’ve put on two. No! No! That’s insane, let’s get on and try it again. I must admit it was such a shock, so this time I take off my watch and even my socks.

Now the 12 steps are getting inside. Each night I sit down and pray, Get up in the morning, think just for today. Without this group I can’t find my way Now anything’s possible because of NA

So step on again, ‘cos I just want to see, and lo and behold, it now says I’ve put on three.

So forget about the weed the smack and the crack

Well I’ll just have to try harder this week and stick to the plan.

All of you people just keep coming back.

Could it of been the chocolate and biscuits I eat? Nah, its defo those scales beneath my feet. They must be faulty; yes that’s what it is. Mmm, think on the way home I’ll get chips and fish. By Linda Parle

I’m also continuing to volunteer as a foodbank administrator. I know everybody likes giving the food to the community, but I love my job in the office: I get to hear some amazing stories and to work with some wonderful people with such kind hearts, whilst making sure that all the paperwork is kept up to date. It’s extremely rewarding, and it was fab being trained in new skills. I also continue to grow as a debt advisor, another rewarding voluntary position, and I’m still on the governing board at our local primary school, as well as worshipping at St Andrews church Clubmoor. I also help out in the My Clubmoor office, doing admin and writing articles for the paper: All in all, I’m a bit busy, but life is meant for living and I enjoy living it to the full, and I’m lucky enough to be blessed with the opportunities to do so. And that’s been my life over the past couple of months. Now I just need to plan for Christmas: time to check out the coming soon strip in My Clubmoor Newspaper and get the old diary out! Until next time, Goodbye.
