A WINSFORD-BASED police officer charged with the murder of his fiancée has resigned from Cheshire Constabulary. PC Martin Forshaw, known to colleagues as ‘Alex’ Forshaw, is accused of killing 31-year-old bride-to-be Claire Howarth by inflicting head injuries and then staging a car crash. The 26-year-old was based at Cheshire police HQ on Oakmere Claire Road, Winsford. The couple were Howarth due to get married in St Lucia in the Caribbean this month. A police statement issued on Monday morning said: “Cheshire Constabulary can confirm that at the time of the incident (crash) on Tottington Road, Harwood (near Bolton) on May 7, Martin Forshaw, known as Alex, was a serving Cheshire officer. “PC Forshaw joined the constabulary in November 2003 and was initially posted to Macclesfield before taking up a post at police headquarters on December 22, 2006, as part of a central team providing uniformed operational support. “On Saturday, May 9, Cheshire Constabulary accepted PC Forshaw’s resignation from the force.” Miss Howarth, a PC for Greater Manchester Police, was in a BMW which crashed on May 7 in Harwood. A post-mortem examination revealed she died from head injuries – but her injuries were not consistent with the collision, a police source said. Forshaw appeared at Bolton Magistrates Court on Monday and was remanded in custody. He is due to appear at Manchester Crown Court on Monday, May 18.

GRAHAM Evans, the prospective Conservative MP for Weaver Vale, has welcomed Local Newspaper Week as a means of highlighting the importance of local news to towns and villages in Vale Royal. He said: “Thriving local newspapers play a vital role in the community. “Unfortunately, due to the economic recession causing a reduction in advertising, many newspapers are strug-

LUCKY ESCAPE: Katrina and Richard Blackmore with children Kieran, Rosie and Tyler. VT080509FAMILY-001

A YOUNG family who escaped unharmed when a fire started by arsonists destroyed their home had received a life-saving visit just two weeks earlier. Katrina Blackmore, her husband Richard and their three children managed to get out safely when their flat was ravaged by the blaze, which broke out in the Nip-In shop below on the corner of Siddorn Street and High Street at 1.30am on May 1. And 28-year-old Katrina is convinced a Home Safety Assessment carried out by Cheshire firefighters two weeks previously saved their lives. “I couldn’t see a thing in the smoke, but because of what the firefighters had told us both the children and I knew what to do,” she said. “They had helped us develop an escape route that we had all practiced. So we didn’t panic, we just followed the plan and got out safely. “Without the firefighters’ advice I think we would have all panicked. If that had happened I don’t think we would have all got out.” Police say the fire was started by arsonists who threw a petrol bomb through the ground floor window of the shop. There have been no arrests, but the investigation is ongoing. Katrina and Richard, and children Kieran, nine, Tyler, five and three-year-old Rosie have been temporarily re-homed at Gorse Hill Family Unit in Blacon, Chester. Home Safety Assessments are available free to all Cheshire homes, and you can book by calling 0800 3890053. Katrina said: “I have phoned all of my friends and told them to book one, and I would urge everyone to do the same. That’s what saved our lives that night.”

Thundering success

NEWSFile Arrested on suspicion

A 23-YEAR-OLD man was arrested on Pembroke Way, Winsford, on Wednesday last week on suspicion of possession of class ‘A’ drugs with intent to supply. He was ‘stop-searched’ and found to be in possession of nine ‘wraps’, which police suspect is heroin or crack cocaine. He was released on bail pending further enquiries and forensic examination of the substances.

Report by Dave Goodban Pictures by Valerie Hackpil THE 13th annual Thundersprint has been hailed as one of the best yet by organiser Frank Melling. The tens of thousands who crammed into the town centre enjoyed a weekend of high-octane racing, entertainment and street theatre. And traders were delighted as revved-up revellers splashed the cash – a welcome boost for the town’s economy. “It was a brilliant weekend and a fabulous experience,” said Frank. “There were newborn babies in arms, elderly people in wheelchairs, parents with their children – all kinds of people all having an amazing time. “There really is no other event like it, and we couldn’t have asked for a better crowd.” ■ For more Thundersprint pictures turn to page 12.

The Communities Secretary has been pilloried by the Court of Public Opinion for milking the Commons allowances to the full. Prime Minister Gordon Brown is under pressure to sack her after it was disclosed that she 'flipped' her second home address three times in one year. That allowed her to buy goods for all the properties as taxpayers’s expense. The Daily Telegraph also disclosed she had avoided paying Capital Gains Tax on the sale of one property she had designated as a second home with the Commons – by telling HM Revenue and Customs that it was her primary residence. She made £45,000 on the deal - and would have been liable for an 18% CGT bill if

MOULTON Drama Group’s next production runs from Tuesday to Saturday, May 19-23. Play On, a comedy by Rick Abbot, is at Moulton Village Hall from 7.30pm. A spokesman said: “A theatre group tries desperately to put on a play – Murder Most Foul – amid all kinds of maddening interference from its author, Phyllis, who keeps revising the script until almost opening night. “During the performance anything that can go wrong does go wrong, including an unexpected interruption to Phyllis’s closing speech.” ■ Tickets, at £6, £5 concessions, are available by calling 01606 594190.

PARENTS and friends of Great Budworth Primary School were out in force for a fundraising auction of promises on Thursday night. Auctioneer Adam Partridge from TV show Flog It! volunteered to hammer down the lots and, by kind agreement of Viscount Ashbrook, the event was staged at Arley Hall. The 50 lots ranged from holiday accommodation to meals out and beauty treatments and raised £5,500 for school funds. Earlier this year Ofsted inspectors described Great Budworth as “a good school, improving rapidly”.

RESIDENTS across Winsford have given Muir Group Housing Association a big thumbs-up for quality and customer service – helping it scoop national recognition for excellence. The association has received an official pat on the back for customer service excellence from independent assessor Quality Housing Services. Assessors praised staff and awarded them certification level in two service areas and ‘enhanced certification’ in the remaining eight areas. Muir Group director Sam Scott said: “Such a high level of accreditation is fantastic and a testament to the service our staff provide.”

RESPONSE: Tatton MP and Shadow Chancellor George Osborne. TATTON MP George Osbourne has come out fighting after it was revealed he claimed more than £400 in expenses for a chauffeur to take him from his constituency home in Cheshire to Westminster. The Shadow Chancellor was also rebuked by the Commons authorities because his taxpayer-funded personal website was too “political”. But Mr Osborne, whose constituency includes Barnton and Rudheath, hit back at detractors this week. He told the Chronicle the £440 cab fare, from November 2005, was a one-off. “I usually travel the 200 miles to Westminster by train,” he said. “On this one occasion I had a constituency function that evening and had to be in London very early the next morning. “The engagement finished after the last train left so I hired a car.” On the subject of his website, www. georgeosborne.co.uk, the MP said: “In

2006/07 my website was redesigned. Rather than remove the ‘political’ features I decided to retain them and pay for the website privately. No public money was spent on the redesigned website.” Mr Osborne said he had remortgaged his home in March 2008 to take advantage of a more competitive rate on his interest-only mortgage. Records also show he spent hundreds of pounds on cleaning his constituency home, including a £430 for a threemonth period between February and April last year. Mid Cheshire’s two other MPs, Stepphen O’Brien (Eddisbury, Conservative) and Mike Hall (Weaver Vale, Labour), both support the need for transparency and say they have nothing to hide regarding their own claims. Revellations in The Daily Telegraph have put a number of MPs in the stocks for their liberal approach to what they can claim to carry out their job.

RAOB steward is on the mend

Legal eagles turn to birds of prey

A NORTHWICH man critically hurt outside a town bar is making a good recovery in hospital, say police. Frank Pemberton, 55, of London Road, was allegedly assaulted with a spade at the back of Madisons in the early hours of April 25. He suffered serious head injuries and was transferred from Leighton Hospital to a specialist unit in North Staffordshire. But he is now back at Leighton and on the mend. A Cheshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: “He’s now conscious and his condition continues to improve.” Mark Igoe, 33, of Milton Grove, Warrington, was due at Chester Crown Court yesterday charged with two counts of wounding.

JOBLESS professionals thrown out of work by the recession are lining up to undergo an unusual career swap, according to Steve Birchall, managing director at Cheshire Falconry. Accountants, company directors and redundant legal eagles have approached the falconry centre owner asking for training with birds of prey to forge a new career. “The calls and letters have been increasing since the economic slowdown,” said Mr Birchall of Sandiway’s Blakemere Craft Centre. “I guess, after the stress of a career in high finance or law, the prospect of making a living in beautiful rural surroundings, handling the proud birds of prey we have here would appeal to anybody.”

in association with

Sporting spirit is a thing of the past JUSTWilliam The musings of a middle-aged man from Middle England IT saddens me more than I can say that nearly all professional sports have resorted to ‘trial by television’ to resolve contentious decisions. Yes, I know it can expose mistakes. But, invariably, it merely shows the referee or umpire got it right in the first place. When it shows the odd occasion when they get it wrong, it undermines their authority. These people are usually beyond reproach in giving their decisions. They have no bias – they simply give a decision based on what they see or hear. Why don’t we just trust them? This questioning of authority is seen by children on TV and at matches and they think it is OK for them to follow suit. They also see players haranguing officials and feel it must be OK to do the same. I have never understood why a player will be booked in a seven-aside game at Moss Farm for swearing, even when it is not at the referee, yet in the Premier League players constantly swear at officials and escape any punishment. We view some children as out of control, but fail to accept that it is our own fault that they are because we have given them no hard and fast values to follow. In some cases we have given them no values to follow whatsoever. I am at present considering becoming a cricket umpire. If I do I will give my decisions to the best of my ability without fear or favour. I hope the players I give out wrongly will accept my mistake with good grace, and when I fail to give them out, when they know in their own minds they should go, I hope they will do the decent thing and ‘walk’. But I know that in this day and age that is very unlikely to happen, they will do the ‘professional’ thing and stand their ground. Personally, for the word ‘professional’, I would read the word ‘cheat’. I urge all players of all sports to put back what is fast disappearing, the respect they once had for the men and women who do their best to ensure the game is played correctly and in the right spirit. Who knows, that attitude might then spread into all walks of life and our police, teachers and local politicians will again have the respect they deserve.

Westminster gravy train

MPs’ expenses are very much in the news and we taxpayers who pay for their indulgences are beginning to realise the true cost of the Westminster gravy train. All parties are affected. Our local Labour MP for Weaver Vale, Mike Hall, last year (2007/08) claimed expenses totalling an eye-watering £167,791. His claim was the 25th highest of all 646 MPs. In addition he enjoys a not-unhealthy salary of £64,766 pa. His expenses included a second home allowance of £23,067, a staffing allowance of £94,671, travel costs for self, staff and spouse of £15,031, incidental expenses of £17,087, a communications allowance of £9,793 – all in addition to stationery, postage and computer equipment costs. In Parliament Mike Hall spoke in only seven debates in the year, well below average amongst MPs. He lodged no written questions on any topic and is a member of just one select committee. His voting record includes being in favour of ID cards, student top-up fees and the Iraq War. He voted against an investigation into the Iraq War, was against Government help for unfortunate victims of pension fund collapses, and, surprise surprise, voted against a ‘transparent’ Parliament (source: www.theyworkforyou. com). It’s no wonder with his total cost of more than £232,000 to the taxpayer. Justifiable? Value for money? Certainly not, but readers must draw their own conclusions and vote accordingly at the ballot box. ‘DISGUSTED’ Weaverham (Name & address supplied) THE Independent Senior Salaries Review Body ■ looked at what it costs MPs to

live in London and set the annual amount that MPs can claim. All claims must be within the published rules and all claims are independently approved by the Department for Resources in Parliament. I fully support the need for transparency in the handling of MPs claims. Arrangements are in place for the receipts relating to claims made by MPs to be made public shortly.

All parties must now work with the Standards Committee to bring forward arrangements that are fair, transparent and enable MPs to do their important job. MIKE HALL Labour MP for Weaver Vale SOME of our MPs have ■ wrongly obtained public

money but hide behind a flawed system – somehow it’s not their fault! What astounds me about these latest revelations is that MPs knew all about the Freedom of Information Act. They must think we’re brainless and wouldn’t use the Act to expose their greed. DONAL MCKENNA Winsford (by email)

I REPLY to Nick Griffin, chairman of the BNP, with a brief history lesson. Many of the men who fought at Trafalgar were there only because they were ‘pressed’ into service. As for Waterloo, only about 10,000 of the 65,000 troops led by the Duke of Wellington were English. The rest were Scots, Irish, Welsh, Dutch and German. Oh, and we’d still have lost had not Field Marshall Blücher and his Prussian Army arrived late on the field of battle and turned the tide. Passchendaele and Flanders Field? If Mr Griffin visited Ypres and the Menin Gate, he’d see the names of more than 50,000 men commemorated there who have no known grave. Among those thousands are Sikhs, Muslims and Chinese alongside those other British citizens from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa and other nations which were members of our Empire. All these nations also fought with us at Normandy, along with Free French troops and Americans. During the crucial Battle of Britain, our air force was reinforced by men from Poland, Czechoslovakia, Israel, Belgium, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, France, America, Ireland, Jamaica and Southern Rhodesia. They were all part of ‘The Few’ who held back the Nazi hordes. He says only those who forefath-

ers fought in these conflicts can claim this country as theirs. That sadly does not include the Royal Family, unless you include Prince Philip who was actually a Greek citizen at the time. Do they get included retrospectively because Prince Andrew fought in the Falklands War? Who knows, under Mr Griffin’s half-baked, hair-brained rules? Mr Griffin, you spout the usual jingoistic rubbish of the BNP. Please go back to the hole you crawled out of and allow us, the real British public, to continue to be the wonderful, tolerant nation we have always been. Finally, we know why we fought these wars, not to be the Little Englanders you would like us to be but to ensure freedom and democracy for all. ALAN LOWE, Melchett Crescent, Rudheath, Northwich CW9 7EP I RECENTLY read an article about the BNP in which its ■ chairman Nick Griffin strongly

denied his party was racist. He actually sounded quite convincing. However, I hope anybody who read that also read his letter in the Chronicle, May 6. In this letter he talks about ‘foreign invaders’. These two words alone express so clearly and concisely the non-racist policy of the BNP. I feel no further comment is necessary. JOHN JORDAN School Lane, Lostock Gralam

No whitewash Pick-me-up for Party to block extreme right on Iraq debacle hospital run

BRITISH troops finally leave Iraq after six agonising years. The Government says our troops did a wonderful job and Iraq is a better place despite the fact that a million Iraqi civilians have died, the infrastructure of the country destroyed and most Iraqis feel life was better under Saddam! Will Gordon Brown hold a proper inquiry into the lies that led to the war or will we be offered another whitewash? And what of other conflicts equally as morally repugnant, such as Afghanistan and America’s de facto war on Pakistan, which has so destabilised the country that the Taliban may take over a nuclear armed state? MARK HOLT Chairman, Stop the War Coalition, Merseyside

THE publicity you gave us about the Hospital Visitor Transport Service created a great deal of interest and we’ve had a big increase in people using it. People are talking about this great service – and we’re keen to generate even more interest. The service has now increased its operating hours and is now available seven days a week – on Monday to Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons The service now applies to both Leighton Hospital and the Northwich Infirmary. It’s free to anyone who holds a bus pass and concessionary fares are available to others. To book call 01606 784100. CHRIS BRANDON West Avenue, Rudheath

ON JUNE 4, voters will face a simple choice. On offer is more of the same, the extreme right-wingers in the BNP – or an alternative in tune with the working-class majority and which will not join the gravy train. The far-right racists in the BNP think they can win a seat in the North West. I believe the most viable means of stopping them is the list on which I am standing, No2EU – Yes to Democracy. Our policies are simple but unique, as our website www.no2eu.com explains. No to the EU gravy train, yes to defending jobs and services, No to the EU rulings and laws which attack those, yes to the democratic and workplace rights of working-class people.

NEWSFile Sup beer for charity

CUSTOMERS at the Wetherspoons’ pubs in Northwich and Winsford can now enjoy a pint of beer and raise funds for a children’s cancer charity at the same time. The Penny Black pub and The Queens Arms are serving an exclusive real ale, Fools Gold, with 10p from the sale of each pint going directly to CLIC Sargent, a charity which helps children with cancer and their families. Pub manager Roger Cazaly said: “Real ale is very popular at the pub and I’m sure that our customers will enjoy a pint of Fools Gold and welcome the opportunity to support an excellent charity too.” The beer, brewed by Shardlow Brewery, is described as a “smooth golden ale” and has an abv (alcohol by volume) of 4.5%. It will be on sale until Monday, June 29.

Plans considered

WINSFORD Town Council’s planning sub-committee met last night, Tuesday, to discuss proposals including: ■ A residential development of four homes at 125A Swanlow Lane for Mr Martin O’Neil. ■ The erection of 12 apartments in two three-storey blocks on Sadler Road for Mr Paul Webster. ■ A new detached house with garage and new access drive to serve existing dwelling at 238 Ways Green for Mr J Astles. ■ A single-storey rear extension to an existing garage at 20 Peacock Road for Mr Paul Downer. ■ A single-storey extension to the rear of 59 The Fairways for Mr Alan Foxley. ■ Raised decking area and canopy with landscaping at Red Lion, Wharton Road for Punch Taverns.

Charity run raises £450

Credit crunch delight for Vicky NORTHWICH’S Vicky Howard finished fourth in the nationwide competition to find a new flavour for crisp giant Walkers – but still won £10,000! The former County High School pupil’s creation, Crispy Duck and Hoisin, racked up 176,184 votes in a national text vote. But it wasn’t quite enough to

land her a £50,000 prize and a share of future profits in the Do us a Flavour competition. After three months of intense campaigning and a total of more than a million votes cast, Builder’s Breakfast, the brainchild of Emma Rushin, from Belper, Derbyshire, was named the winner of the competition last Wednesday.

But the good news is 21-year-old Vicky, from Antrobus, still walked away with £10,000 as a losing finalist! Do Us A Flavour’ kicked off in July 2008, when Walkers challenged crisp lovers around the country to invent a brand new flavour. The nationwide search received over 1.2m entries from the British and Irish public. The six finalist flavours were then selected by chief judge Heston Blumenthal and a panel of judges from Walkers. All six were put on sale in January this year.

A BAND of Weaverham High School students are in with a chance of playing one of Britain’s biggest music events – and you can help them realise their dream. Angel Range are vying with four other groups from across the country for the right to perform at the Leeds Festival alongside Radiohead, Kaiser Chiefs and Kings of Leon. The rock/indie outfit, made up of six GCSE pupils from the Lime Avenue school and fronted by 16-year-old singer Liv Westhead, won a regional ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition at the Pillar of Salt at Leftwich. And they have made a nationwide shortlist of five teenage acts after impressing a panel of industry experts in The Big School Gig competition, in association with Oxfam. The winners will be decided by an online public vote by June 1. “It’s been difficult because we’re all trying to revise but we’re so excited about the possibility of playing Leeds!” said Liv, who lives in Hartford. The rest of Angel Range are Sara Clarke (backing vocals/guitar); Chris Abbott (guitar); Dom Ashton (drums); Rob Clark (keyboard/synthesiser) and Alex Smith (bass). The band has also made the semi-final of the Whatfest Battle of the Bands

Nick is King of the students

TOP OF THE CLASS: Photography student Nick King was named Mid-Cheshire College student of the year and given the Victoria Barber award for outstanding achievement. A RETAIL manager who lost his job before deciding to pursue a long-held ambition has been named Mid-Cheshire College’s student of the year. Foundation Degree photography student Nick King, 61, wanted to follow his love of visual arts after being made redundant. And last month he was honoured with the Victoria Barber Award for outstanding achievement. “I always regretted not having pursued my artwork and redundancy gave me the opportunity to re-skill for a new challenge,” said Nick. His tutor, A J Wilkinson, added: “Nick is one of my outstanding students who would tackle any task put in front of him. “He’s a strong individual with amaz-

MID-CHESHIRE COLLEGE ing ideas and a model student in all aspects.” While on the second year of the course Nick battled with cancer and had to undergo several spells in hospital. And the college decided his triumph over adversity was befitting of the award named after a former photography student who battled to complete her course in 2002 despite serious ill-health. Nick, who lives in Wilmslow, was among 114 students of various ages to receive their Foundation Degrees in April, in subjects ranging from arts to business and engineering to teaching.

The sweet smell of success... CHESHIRE’S Year of Gardens 08 was a blooming success – helping to rake in more than £15m in revenue for the area. The event had aimed to involve 2,200 people – but more than 8,000 eventually took part in 88 activities. Local tourism board Visit Chester & Cheshire reported that its gross economic impact target of £15.1m for Cheshire’s Year of Gardens 08 had been achieved at £15.3m. “We’ve demonstrated that innovative thinking and creative partnerships can generate significant benefits for the local economy,” said its jubilant chief ex-

ecutive, Chris Brown. Attracting 46,000 additional visitors than estimated (300,000), organisers are convinced these increases are a direct result of the pioneering partnership between Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction and organisations big and small across Cheshire and Warrington. Erika Wenzel, chief executive of Cheshire East Council, which helped organise the event, said: “The community project was a huge success and I am sure Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction

Programme (part of the event) will continue to make a significant contribution to both the visitor economy and the communities of the area.” Felicity Goodey, chair of Cheshire’s Year of Gardens Steering Group, added: “The economic impact of Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction campaign has surpassed all our expectations. “People of all ages and from all over Cheshire have taken part in an array of garden-related activities and made the most unlikely corners of the county ‘bloom’ in a delightful variety of unexpected ways.”

A sponsor came in to save the day, but the money has now dried up again. Committee members have already paid off debts of around £1,200 but the group, which looks after children aged up to four, still owes the school in the region of £650.

Exhibition with a difference

Fairies go free at gardens

WEAVER Vale MP Mike Hall and Chris Cook, head of culture and recreation for Cheshire West and Chester visited the R We So D’f’rent? exhibition at the Salt Museum before it moved on. The project behind the exhibition was to challenge teenagers to ask themselves if they’re so different to their parents and grandparents as teenagers. All the youngsters learned interviewing and photography skills and conducted formal interviews with and took portrait pictures of their interviewees, which form a book to commemorate the project. Mr Hall wrote its foreword. Artefacts familiar to teenagers of each generation are also on display. The next stop for the exhibition is Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham. It will be on display for a month before moving back to Northwich to be displayed in the library.

FAIRY folk across the UK will be dusting off their wings as Cheshire’s gardens announce the launch of a Fairies Go Free policy to celebrate the arrival of the county’s dramatic displays of bluebells. In honour of folklore linking bluebells and the fairy world, any child who visits the gardens wearing a fairy costume during bluebell season can explore them for free. Gardens participating from now until June 1 include Capesthorne Hall and Gardens, Arley Hall and Gardens and Norton Priory. ■ For more information visit www.cheshiresgardens.com.

Tale of guys and dolls REVIEW by Tracey Clare

THE Vienna Royal Ballet gave an impeccable performance of Coppelia at Northwich Memorial Hall. The show tells the comical story of Dr Coppelias, an eccentric scientist-cum-toymaker who makes lifelike mechanical dolls. His workshop is in the village where Franz and Swanhilda are conducting a courtship. Swanhilda becomes disillusioned with Franz’s romantic intentions towards her when she witnesses him blowing kisses to a beautiful girl on the balcony of Dr Coppelias’ workshop. She secretly enters and discovers the object of Franz’s flirtation is nothing more than a clockwork doll (Coppelia). When Dr Coppelias returns home Swanhilda is forced to hide and takes Coppelia with her. Meanwhile, Franz enters the building in search of Swanhilda. On finding him, the Doctor pretends to befriend Franz, but secretly drugs him then collects his beautiful doll, not realising that it is Swanhilda who has cleverly disguised herself. Swanhilda ruins all the Doctor’s attempts to sap the life force from Franz in order to give life to Coppelia. Eventually Franz is roused from his stupor and the Doctor realises his beloved doll is none other than Swanhilda! All ends well for the lovers, who marry in the final act and all is forgiven. The cast were superb in both their acting and dance. Carl Hale was convincing as the scatty Doctor, Steven Windsor was a delight as the zealous Franz and Saori Ishiyama beautifully performed the mischievous Swanhilda. The ballet, on May 1, pleased both young and old alike and notably held the attention of some very young members of the audience. The costumes ranged from simple – for the peasants – to stunning for the wedding. Sadly the ballet did not play to a full house but it was a class act!

Vauxhall flies the flag vsehxiwx

CAR OF THE YEAR: Zey|lepp Mrwmkrme2

with Ian Johnson IT was just Vauxhall’s luck. Introduce its best car since the Cavalier of the 1980s and global recession kicks in.

Nevertheless, the new flagship Insignia has proved that the Vauxhall flag is flying high with the Insignia scooping 2009 Car of the Year status and more than 15,000 orders in the first month of the car reaching the showrooms. Parent company GM may be in a financial fix, but Vauxhall is up there doing what it has always done best – fielding a range of cars that are exceptional. Not resting on its award laurels Vauxhall has introduced a third body style to the Insignia range, the Sports Tourer, which opens the field for Insignia to compete in a market sector that offers much opportunity – or will do when the market picks up. In the past, many estates were boxy alternatives to smart saloons or hatches, but the lifestyle movement dictated a shift of ideas that brought the estate up to date as an option that sacrifices no style in the quest for versatility. And there is also no sacrifice in the range of technical innovation found on other models in the range including Intelligent Adaptive Forward Lighting

and Adaptive 4x4. Where Sports Tourer ticks the extra boxes is its ability to carry a 540-litre load with the rear seats up. Dropping the 60:40 split rear seats converts this model into an even more capacious load lugger, with a volume of up to 1530 litres. Honda is widely praised for the rear end style of its Sport Tourer Accord, but it now has a serious rival in the Insignia because

Vauxhall designers have risen well to the challenge of wrapping it all in an eye-catching way. They created a tailgate with large, fully integrated lights clusters that curve around the car, giving more visual cohesion than a conventional approach. In this, the most aerodynamic estate ever produced by Vauxhall, the secondary tail lights are exposed when the tailgate is

Coinciding with the Sports Tourer’s launch is the introduction of a sixth engine to the range, a 180PS 1.6 Turbo which should provide a modern option to the old Cavalier 1.6 estate of the 1980s – the sales rep’s dream motor. This engine does provide exceptional performance, combined with reduced fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions. I managed to cover a few miles in the more powerful 2.0 litre Turbo version which does hammer home the point that Vauxhall has an exceptional car here. Built in Russelsheim to extremely exacting standards, the Insignia Sports Tourer points a distinct way forward for Vauxhall in terms of driving enjoyment and quality.

Oakmere halt losing run in Premier

OAKMERE stopped the rot in the Cheshire County League on Saturday but their efforts were not enough to secure their first victory. The Overdale Lane side, who have found life difficult in their first season in Division Two, hosted Tattenhall who they asked to bat first. Michael Cushion claimed 2-31 but breakthroughs were rare as visiting Tatts reached 185-6 from their 50 overs. In reply, a determined EFFORT: Craig Phelan. Oakmere made slow progress JK090509OakmereCC-013 but lost wickets too regularly.

Craig Phelan provided resistance hitting an unbeaten 30 with Paul Hutchinson scoring 20 from 50 balls. Victory looked unlikely but not impossible but two quickfire ducks put paid to any hopes Oakmere had of claiming their first win of the season as they settled on 130-8. This Saturday, Oakmere travel to Mobberley’s Church Lane ground (1pm). ■ Oulton Park continued their impressive start to the Premier season with an eight-wicket stroll at Didsbury.

Electing to bowl first, Park set about dismantling the Didsbury line up and that they did, restricting the South Manchester hosts to 134 all out. Nathan Dumelow once again impressed with the ball claiming 4-25 with Robin Taylor in support (2-18). In reply, Park eased to victory 136-2 with Danny Leech unbeaten on 48 after Jonny Kettle made 47. On Saturday Park host Oxton (12.30pm).

Return to form is led by Jamieson

Roberts’ Wembley joy

TURNING UP: Oakmere’s Pete Hutchinson could only take one wicket in his side’s draw against Tattenhall on Saturday.

Cheshire on the road

Hall’s efforts in vain

CRICKET: Cheshire narrowly lost their latest Minor Counties Championship fixture with Oxfordshire the beneficiaries. Captain Andy Hall hit 72 in the home side’s total of 284-9 at Christleton’s Heath Lane ground. But it was not enough as the visitors replied with 286-6 with just nine balls to spare. Cheshire now visit Shropshire at Wem on Sunday (11am).

Second-round draw

CRICKET: The second-round draw of the Cheshire Cup has been made with games to be played on Sunday, May 17 at 1.30pm. Second-round draw: Burnage v Winnington Park, Romiley v Davenham, Rode Park and Lawton v Weaverham, Marple v Northwich.

Grey Lambs get close

FOOTBALL: Lostock Gralam Reserves were confirmed as Crewe and District League runners up at the weekend. Ben Harrison scored twice in their 2-0 win over Cuddington. The Grey Lambs finish their season at MMU on Wednesday (6.30pm). They are in action this Saturday when they take on Tarporley Vics Reserves in the Arthur Cooke Trophy final at the Cumberland Sports Arena in Crewe (2pm).

FOOTBALL: Northwich defender Mark Roberts achieved a schoolboy’s dream at the weekend – winning at Wembley. The 25-year-old, who left Northwich Vics to join Stevenage Borough last year, was in the starting line-up for Boro’s FA Trophy Final clash with York City. Stevenage ran out 2-0 winners of the Minstermen with Roberts heading on a corner to set up their second goal in front 27,102 supporters at England’s HQ.

RUGBY UNION: Cheshire took their first step towards Twickenham on Saturday with a comprehensive 61-18 victory over Leicestershire at Vipers RFC. Cheshire travel to Aspatria on Saturday to take on Cumbria before hosting North Midlands on Saturday, May 23, at Macclesfield. Two wins would see Cheshire return to Twickenham for the first time since 2006, when they won the County Championship Shield. A day out at rugby HQ would also mean an immediate return to the County Championship, from which they were relegated last season.

How they stand

JK090509 OakmereCC-019

NORTHWICH bounced back from last week’s drubbing in Meller Braggins League Division One with a winning draw at Congleton on Saturday.

Batting first the Moss Farm outfit made 158-9 thanks mainly to Matthew Jamieson’s 50 and skipper Jon O’Sullivan’s 35. In reply the Bears were heading for victory but five wickets from Jamieson helped stall their progress, and they fell just short on 156-8. This Saturday Northwich host Alvanley (1.30pm). Davenham were forced to hold on for a share of the points at Mere despite having bowled out the hosts for 132. In reply, the Butcher’s Stile club made just 117-9 and claimed eight points for their efforts. This Saturday, Davenham host Barrow (1.30pm). Also in Division One, Winnington Park’s winless start to the season con-

Cricket tinued at Alvanley on Saturday. Electing to bat first, Park made just 114-9 (Phil Amatiello 37) which, on a decent batting track, was not enough to give their bowlers any hope. Alvanley eased to victory at 118-2. Winnington look to bounce back when they host Ashley (1.30pm). In Division Two, Barnton and Winsford provided a thrilling encounter at Knight’s Grange with visiting Barnton claiming a famous victory. Choosing to bat first, the Broomsedge side rode their luck at times with six catching opportunities being dropped and made 145-5 (Neil Langham 26no, Dave Tierney 2-33). In reply, Tierney hit 52 and 20 from Gary Sergeant put the hosts within five runs of

victory but it was not to be as Barnton claimed the last man and victory with the score on 142 all out. This Saturday, Winsford visit Over Peover while Barnton host Weaverham (both 1.30pm) who have moved up to fourth in the table following another impressive victory. The Russetts hosted Bowdon Vale at Wallerscote Road and after surprisingly electing to bat first, Vale were skittled out for just 97 (Alan Bell 3-16, Rob McMillan 3-30). In reply, Dave Ashley smashed 57no as the hosts strolled to victory at 98-2. In the Cheshire Alliance, Matt Shinkfield’s figures of 5-52 were in vain as Hartford lost at Disley. The hosts made 155-5 but Hartford could not get going and were all out for 84. This Saturday they host Appleton (2pm).

King Kemp continues march towards crown WEAVER Valley Cycling Club’s top veteran rider Alan Kemp continued his dominant form with two superb victories. The Northwich man triumphed at the four-stage 150-mile race at Abberley in Worcestershire. His overall finishes of first, second, seventh and second was enough for Kemp to take the winner’s jersey and

Cycling trophy back to Mid Cheshire. On Sunday, Kemp was in action again, this time in the fourth round of the Percy Stallard series at Lincoln. Kemp broke away from the field in the final hill sprint and finished first after a gruelling 40 miles. Last Tuesday, seven Weaver Valley

riders took part in the second round of the TLI Series at Jodrell Bank. Craig Lee was first home for WV, followed by Nic Butterworth, Dave Swindles and Chas Readman. In Saturday’s Dukinfield 50 -mile time-trial event, Dave Fearon was fastest for WV in a time of two hours five minutes 28 seconds. He was followed by Dave McKay and Readman. Four WV riders competed for the

Steve Gutteridge Memorial Trophy road race at Saighton, Chester. Graham Gregory pipped Kevin Underhill to 16th place in the bright sunshine while Dave Astles finished in the pack. Richard Munroe, recovering from broken ribs, also competed well. On Sunday, the Weaver Valley club run leaves at 9.30am while Monday sees a social night, open to newcomers, take place at 8.30pm.

Vintage veterans are a class above at regatta NORTHWICH Rowing Club enjoyed success on two fronts after the veterans put in a vintage display at Shrewsbury Regatta.

The crew members were: Carolyn MacRitchie, Melanie Wakefield, Carole Riddell, Clare Briegal, Kerry Briggs, Nicola Smith, Karen Airey, Nadia Ankrah and cox Jonty Moore. Both the veterans and the juniors will be in action this weekend at the Chester Regatta on the Dee. The juniors were out in force at the Merseyside Regatta on Saturday and came home with an impressive total of six wins.

Cricket Northwich bounce back but Winsford lose out in derby: p30

Continuity the key for Vics and Witton’s future

STAYING PUT AND LOOKING UP Football

By Ben Coulbeck DIVIDED by rivalry but united in their mission, Northwich Vics and Witton Albion are sticking by their managers this summer.

Vics owner Jim Rushe is expected to offer Andy Preece a full-time contract while Albion chairman Mark Harris is waiting for Gary Finley to put pen to paper on a two-year deal. Both Vics and Witton were relegated last season but the rival clubs are not planning on staying in the Blue Square North and the UniBond First South respectively. Vics chief Rushe is busy trying to pull the Marston’s Arena club out of the financial mire and has now exchanged contracts to buy the stadium. He told the Chronicle that he expects to part with £1.5m to become the new owner of the ground by June 12. He said: “We have exchanged contracts and it’s in my hands now. I have put the deposit down and I fully expect to receive the finances and complete the purchase of the ground by the 12th of June. “We are a community club again and people of all generations are coming back to join us. “We haven’t sat down and talked about Andy’s contract but he is fully behind everything that we are doing here. “I fully expect us to bounce back next season and slowly but surely things are moving in the right direction. “It won’t change overnight but I am happy to let it happen slowly because I have never run a club of this stature before.” Across town at Wincham Park, Albion are preparing to face the likes of Loughborough Dynamo, Goole and

REBUILDING: Andy Preece (left) and Gary Finley are being asked to stay in their managerial roles of Northwich Vics and Witton Albion despite both clubs being relegated this season. Gresley Rovers, but Harris says that keeping Finley as manager is key to any immediate promotion attempt. He said: “We have agreed terms on a two-year contract which we fully expect him to sign. That sends out a message that we want to get back to the

Premier at the first attempt. “Behind every successful club is continuity on and off the field. “We are going to be in a difficult division in First Division South with some excellent teams but I am sure we can be competitive.

“We have had to cut the budget and Gary is speaking to the players he wants to keep and who he doesn’t. “Our plans will demonstrate to players, supporters and anybody interested in Witton Albion FC that we are focused on the job in hand.”

...but nothing is certain about Gibiliru WINSFORD United are still to make a decision on the future of manager Joe Gibiliru who steered the club to Vodkat Premier League safety. The Blues boss told the Chronicle last month that he was going to leave the Barton Stadium at the end of the season. But after United survived the drop, despite winning just two of their games in

attend meetings with the club’s board with a view to keeping the Liverpudlian at Winsford for a third year. A meeting was held last week but rather than completing a u-turn and staying put at United, Gibiliru revealed that his future remains unclear. He said: “Nothing has been sorted yet to be honest. Unless something happens in the next 24 hours

Winsford United anything yet. “The right decisions need to be made for the future of the club. I have received a couple of phone calls from board members and that is how things are going. “Whatever the club decides, I am being amicable. I am enjoying this little rest at the moment but hopefully something will

Chairman Loveless confirmed that an announcement will be made next week by which time a decision will have been taken. He refused to rule out a change of management but was considering a proposal set out by Gibiliru during the meeting. He said: “We met with Joe for about 20 minutes and he made a proposal to us about working in part-

who is currently a coach at Liverpool FC. “Last season was tough but we were the only local club out of the three to stay in the division it started in. We have spoken about what went wrong. “I do have other people in mind for the position so it’s up in the air at the moment. I have to make sure that we have the right people in the job to take us

VALE Royal returned a record-breaking medal haul from the Cheshire track and field championships at Warrington. Leading the Mid Cheshire club’s achievements, that saw 46 medals won over the weekend at Victoria Park, was England international Rebecca Craigie who claimed a hat-trick of golds in the junior ladies’ 400m, 800m and 1,500m. Following closely behind with two golden displays was James Griffiths who won the 400m and 800m in the senior men’s event. Other gold-medal winning Vale Royal athletes were James Stringer (400m), Ruth Howard (long jump), Eleanor Owen (triple jump), Megan Huxley (1,500m) and Charlotte Mills (3,000m). Vale Royal also grabbed a huge pot of silver with Victoria Anderson claiming a treble in the 300m hurdles, high jump and triple jump. Also gaining silvers were: Kathy Stringer (1,500m, 800m), Zach Bamber (1,500m, 800m), Nikki Meadows (3,000m), Jack Seddon (100m), Eleanor Owen (long jump), Ruth Howard (triple jump), Lucy Whittick (1,500m), Megan Huxley (800m), Nathan Sherrard (discus), Nathan Tipping (800m), Richard Tranter (long jump), Jade Evans (1,500m), Tim Morris (800m, 1,500m) and Jessica Parsons (1,500m). Bronze medalists were: Andrew Miles (3,000m), Claire Perry (1,500m), Hannah Paver (800m), Lewis Healey (1,500m) Hannah Carlin (100m) and Louise Towers (1,500m). Coach Sean McGrath was proud of his squad’s achievements and said: “We didn’t win as many golds as last year but certainly more medals which was not expected. “Zack Bamber finished second but that was a dramatic improvement, he actually fell over during the race and had to battle past half the field to get back into his position.” McGrath added that the results would have been even better if there were facilities built in Mid Cheshire that would maximise the potential of Vale Royal athletes. He said: “What the results do show is that other clubs that have got track and field facilities are getting scores of medals in event such as the high jump and throwing events. “We are the only major club in the area without a track and we’ve got problems at Winsford and Hartford. It’s ridiculous.” Published by Trinity Mirror Cheshire Ltd at Chronicle House, Commonhall Street, Chester CH1 2AA. Printed by Trinity Mirror Printing Oldham Ltd at Hollingwood Avenue, Oldham OL9 8ED.
