£10k BOUNTY ON HEAD OF RAIL VANDAL Driver could have been killed by slab A REWARD of £10,000 is be- By Ben Coulbeck ing offered after a concrete slab was thrown at a freight window which collapsed into the train near Northwich. The incident happened on Sunday, June 7, when the DB Schenker train was travelling between Weaverham and Hartford. The driver suffered cuts to his face and hands. Officers from British Transport Police have so far been unable to catch those responsible but train company DB Schenker is now offering the five-figure reward in a bid to bring witnesses forward. Detective Chief Insp Malcolm McKinnon also made an appeal to the public to contact them with any information relevant to the investigation. He said: “We’ve had officers working around the clock investigating this case but it has proved problematic as the location of the offence, a public footpath running through farmland, is extremely rural. “However, I’m convinced the offender will be known to someone – they may have boasted about their actions. “I’m appealing to the conscience of anyone with information. When the slab struck the train, it shattered the driver’s

cab and pinned the driver to the seat. “He was also showered with broken glass which caused cuts to his face and hands. “Clearly this was extremely serious. It’s only good fortune that we’re not now dealing with an incident which had fatal consequences. “If you know who is responsible, or have information you think might assist the investigation, speak to us. The driver in this case is making a good recovery but the next may not be as fortunate.” The incident is one of half-a-dozen attacks launched at passing trains from the Hodge Lane footbridge, Hartford. In March, an express travelling to Liverpool Lime Street had its power cut after a piece of concrete was dropped on to it from above. On May 30, the London Euston to Preston service was peppered with stones at 9.45pm, and the Edinburgh-Birmingham train was targeted at 8.30pm three days later. ■ If you have information, contact the BTP on 0800 405040.

Prison for sex with girl, 14 A 24-YEAR-OLD Winsford man was jailed on Thursday after he started a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl he met over the internet. Mathew Sugarman, of Dene Drive, admitted having sexual intercourse with the girl who he had met through the social networking site Facebook. Prosecutor Peter Frost said: “After exchanging messages and text messages, they decided to meet.” “Her mother discovered the friendship and warned the defendant off by telling him she is only 14.” Despite this, the court heard Sugarman sent the girl sexually explicit messages and even one that said ‘I want you to have my baby’. Sugarman told the police the message was meant to be a joke. Mr Frost told the court that on November 23 the girl’s parents went out for the evening and, unknown to them, Sugarman visited their daughter at their home. The prosecutor said the girl told officers she had ‘felt pressurised’ into having sexual intercourse with him. Mr Frost said: “The defendant had said he would go elsewhere if she didn’t.” Mr Frost added: “Her mother suspected something had happened when her daughter asked her on her return what could happen when someone had unprotected sex.” She questioned her daughter and discovered what had happened. Sugarman admitted having sex with the girl and told officers she was a willing partner and had initiated the discussion on sex. Judge Elgan Edwards told Sugarman: “This is a very serious matter and constitutes a breach of trust.” He sentenced Sugarman to 18 months in prison and banned him from owning a computer and using the internet for five years.

Race circuit in drive for funds

By Ben Coulbeck

COMMUNITIES were revved up after Oulton Park raised more than £1,000 for two villages.

The Mid Cheshire circuit in Little Budworth held its annual Villages Day, which was attended by 300 people, and funds raised were divided between two parish councils. Little Budworth and Rushton, near Tarporley, will benefit from the event, which was open to all residents living within one mile of the famous motor racing track. For a donation of £5, visitors were given the opportunity to drive one of Oulton Park’s brand new BMW M3 RaceMaster vehicles, capable of 0-60mph in four seconds. Residents were also able to get behind the wheel of a RallyMaster rear-wheeldrive Escort Cosworth and a MudMaster Land Rover Defender 4x4. Oulton Park’s expert instructors were on hand to offer guests a white knuckle passenger ride in a Palmer Jaguar JP1 Le Mans-style sports car, while teenagers aged 13-17 were able to experience driving for the first time in a YoungDrive BMW 1 Series. Oulton Park circuit manager Simon Bronser said: “Villages Day is a fun, family-oriented way to show how much we value the support of our local residents. “It also provides us with a great opportunity to raise money for Little Budworth and Rushton parish councils, which will be used to benefit members of the community.” Other activities on offer at Villages Day included free face painting for children and a classic car display by the Chester Vintage Enthusiasts.

NEWSFile Burka ‘infringes dignity’

A NORTH West MEP wants Muslim women to take a lead in making it clear that the wearing of the burka is ‘not welcome’ in the UK. Liberal Democrat Chris Davies says politicians were slow to take action to curb forced marriages within the Muslim community, but it was time now to speak out against a dress code that reduced women to subservience. The burka completely envelopes its wearer, leaving only their eyes visible. President Nicholas Sarkozy of France last week attacked it as an assault upon the dignity of women. Mr Davies says people should have the legal right to wear whatever they wish but politeness shouldn’t prevent disapproval being expressed. He added: “The burka’s not mentioned in the Qur’an. It’s a style of dress used principally in countries where women are treated as mere chattels of men. It does not belong in 21st century Britain.”

Charity bookfest

A NORTHWICH charity shop is taking part in the first nationwide book festival. The Oxfam shop in the Arcade is joining stores from across the country for the innaugural Oxfam Bookfest, which runs for two weeks from Saturday. A charity spokesperson said: “The Festival celebrates the nation’s love of books and aims to fight poverty through the love of reading. “Our event is a silent book auction where a customer can place a bid on their favourite book from a huge selection of unusual titles which will be displayed in the window throughout the book fortnight.”

Evil duo pose as churchmen to con OAP MEN claiming to be from a local church stole cash from an 83-year-old woman. The two men, one wearing prayer beads, approached the woman’s home on Walnut Avenue, Weaverham, at about 3.15pm, on Monday, June 22, saying they had connections to a local church. Once inside her home, one said they had seen a rat in the garden, distracting the homeowner, while the other stole a two-figure sum of money. Cheshire police spokeswoman Jo Preihs said: “No-one was injured but the woman was left extremely distressed.” “The first man was white, slightly tanned and unkempt. He was about 21 and about 5’5” tall, of slim build with dark hair. “He was wearing a black top with rosary beads around his neck, black trousers and light coloured shoes. He spoke with a local accent. “The second was white, about 23, with a chubby, round face and fair hair. He was wearing a cream, short-sleeved shirt and plain cream trousers.” ■ Anyone with information should call PC Joanne Wilkinson or DS Darren Massey on 01244 612 592 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Downpour bursts sewer and buckles main road By Andrew Bowan TRAFFIC in Northwich has been disrupted by a sewer burst which ‘lifted’ the road – one of the town’s main arteries. A downpour caused a main sewer to rupture and the pressure of the water undermined the foundations of Chester Road, causing the carriageway to buckle. United Utilities has been working on the problem since it first surfaced at 11.15pm on Saturday evening. Police initially closed the road from the Iron Bridge to the traffic lights at the junction to Hayhurst Bridge (Chesterway). The road is damaged on both sides of the carriageway just up the hill from the Chesterway lights. Workmen from Nuttalls Contractors have been tasked with fixing the sewerage main and reinstating the road. A Cheshire West spokesman said the repairs were still under way yesterday and they expected them to continue for a ‘few more days yet’. Cllr Kate Birtwistle is keeping a close eye on the situation. She said: “I’ve been out to the site every day since the problem. My prime concern was for traffic flow for businesses and schools on Monday morning. “Apart from a few delays early on, the system seems to be working well enough. This is because the cracks were mostly confined to the joints in the road where the traffic light loops are located. “As a result of the damage to the loops, the timing of the traffic lights was affected, which is why temporary lights have been installed for the time being. “The highways department is working closely with utilities companies to resolve the problem and is keeping me updated on the situation.”

NEWSFile Carnival capers

CLEAR the decks on Saturday as Northwich gets in festival mode. The annual carnival is one of the highlights of the town calendar and organiser Barbara Turner hopes that this year’s offering betters anything that has gone on before. The fun starts at 1pm when the parade begins to travel to Verdin Park, which will be filled with entertainment, including a fairground. The highlight of the day will be the crowning of Carnival Queen Demi-Lee Johnson by Alderman Ron Carey at 3pm. Entry is £1.50 for adults, 50p for children. On Sunday, the carnival committee has organised a car boot sale at Verdin Park. Sellers set up at 7am (cars £8, vans £10) for an 8am opening to the public. Then at 11am there will be the Carnival Dog Show with allcomers welcome. ■ To find out more, ring Barbara Turner on 01606 76113.

IN last week’s Chronicle we included a light-hearted piece based on a receipt which Eddisbury MP Mr Stephen O’Brien had submitted to the Commons Pay Office. Mr O’Brien only claimed for a newspaper from the garage shop receipt, which included various sweets and snacks. We gave the impression Mr O’Brien had eaten all the items himself when in fact they were shared out with his children travelling with him to London. We accept this light-hearted piece has back-fired and apologise to Mr O’Brien’s family for any distress we caused.

Twinners given funding until next year CHESHIRE West and Chester Council is to take a fresh approach to international links. A report to the council recommends an International Framework be produced to establish a new way of managing the policy on international cooperation. It’s common practice among councils to develop twinning relationships, traditionally focused on cultural exchanges and

promoting mutual understanding through reciprocal visits. Vale Royal Borough Council had links with the Rychnov-nad-Kneznou District in the Czech Republic. Ellesmere Port had twinning links with Reutlingen in Germany and Chester had links with Sens in France, Lörrach in Germany and Senigallia in Italy. But the new authority says there’s now an opportunity to take a different approach

WEDDING WEEKEND FLOWERS & BALLOONS January Saturday Saturday24th 11thand andSunday Sunday25th 12th July 10am - 4pm

to foreign links which relate more to the new council’s priorities, especially around local economic benefits and providing a more powerful international voice. To do this the council’s executive has decided not create any new formal twinning links. However, the council will allow each former twinning association to fulfil its obligations until 2010, granting each association £2,000 to do so.

being more popular, visitor numbers soared significantly on the second day. The true stars of the show, the animals, also came in their thousands with record numbers of cattle entries hitting more than 700. Prof David Bellamy came for his third year – proving his passion for the county and its cheese! He said: “These fields are where farming started. It’s still thriving and heading for sustainability.” He indulged in his passion for Cheshire cheese in the Roberts Bakery Food Hall by creating the ‘ultimate’ Cheshire sandwich using cheese from Malpas-based creamery Reece’s, Cheshire bacon, homemade tomato relish and lettuce – all sandwiched into Roberts Bakery’s new seeded farmhouse bread. Also visiting the show was star of BBC’s Victorian Farm, Alex Langlands, who donned his Victorian outfit to turn his hand to rural activities such as coracle sailing, wood-turning, dry stone walling, thatching and hedge-laying. The cheese marquee had record numbers of entries, with 20% more than last year. Guest judge Sean Wilson – aka Martin Platt in Coronation Street – judged the cheeses on the first day of the show.

Setting the rules is easier said than done JUSTWilliam The musings of a middle-aged man from Middle England SHADOW Home Secretary Chris Grayling has stated: “It’s about time we learned as a society, as parents, as teachers, as police, to say ‘No’. “It’s time we spent a bit more time worrying about the wrongs in our society and a bit less about the rights of those who are disrupting it. “It’s time that children realised that they can be told to stop it by a teacher or a policeman and that sometimes, they just have to do what they are told. “Young people have to learn that when an adult makes a decision, they have to listen. The adult doesn’t have to earn their respect.” Fine words, but words are not the answer to the problem: politicians have been spouting these platitudes for more than 20 years. Yet when an adult in authority says ‘No’ he or she’s likely to get hurt or get arrested, or possibly both. Until the law protects teachers, policemen etc, as much as it protects children, nothing can change. Our problem stems from the fact that some adults don’t deserve respect from anyone, never mind just children. But those people are few and far between. The PC brigade give the impression that bad adults are everywhere. Kids need boundaries and they need to know that there will be real repercussions if they cross them. An ordinary housewife came out with this pearl of wisdom not long ago: “It’s every child’s right to try to break the rules and it’s every adult’s responsibility to see that they don’t.” That lady makes the point far better than Chris Grayling. In my young days neither I nor my friends would have dared to give cheek to a teacher or policeman. Now it happens all the time. I work with children and they are wonderful human beings mostly. Give them rules to follow, enforce those rules and they’ll respect you. Show them respect when merited and you will gain a friend for life. So please, Mr Grayling, no more platitudes. If you can’t or won’t do something constructive on the issue, shut up and leave us at the sharp end to try and sort out the mess you politicians have created.

Giving praise where it’s due

THE last time I went to see a couple of shows put on by local children I was taken to task by one reader who felt I was too effusive with my praise. Consequently, having just seen the Mid Cheshire Amateur Operatic Society junior section put on a show called Showcase at Moulton Village Hall, I’ll moderate my opinion by just saying it was ‘very good’ (it was actually brilliant but don’t tell Mr Grumpy). The show was performed by kids aged nine to 17 so, adding that into the equation, they were stunning. The youngest kids were a joy and word and foot perfect. In the older age group, Laura Merriman gave a truly memorable Tomorrow from Annie and Carys Tavener and Shane Carolan performed the Two Ronnie’s sketch Fork Handles to perfection – the audience was in stitches. The whole ensemble performed a brilliantly choreographed version of The Farmer and the Cowman from Oklahoma! There was a problem with the music on the first night but the music was spot on thereafter. Beth Cleverly did an excellent comic monologue and Mollie Markland was her usual excellent self. My final comment just HAS to be over the top because One Vision from We will Rock You performed by Stacy Hancock, Gabby Hodgson and Megan Hodgson was quite simply breathtaking for ones so young. Never mind Britain’s Got Talent, Northwich has it in bucket loads!. The kids deserved all the praise I’ve given them and so do all the adults who gave them the opportunity to show off their talents – so take a bow, Freya Sutton, Debbie Sutton, Zoe Hancock, Shane Cross, David Stevens, Sue Hancock and Barbara Turner.

Take leaf out of BA chief’s book

OUR new council, Cheshire West and Chester, has hardly been in existence three months and already it is seeking voluntary redundancies. It’s not the first time redundancies have been sought. I’d suggest chief executive Steve Robinson, who I understand has a basic salary greater than that of the Prime Minister, take a leaf out of the BA chief exec’s book and work for a month for free.

Council tax payers are being ‘mugged’ Heavily abridged copy of letter to Conservative leader David Cameron and Eddisbury MP Stephen O’Brien I’M VERY disappointed you have neither responded nor acted on my complaints about council money being squandered. Could it be that this is small fry by comparison with some MPs’ fraudulent expense claims – and of little consequence? If you want any credibility, you’d better start showing an interest as I believe council tax payers are being mugged. Councils are out of control, grossly over-manned and overpaid by comparison with the private sector workers. Take sickness leave. In the public sector, they get six months full pay followed by six months half pay. In the private sector, it’s four weeks full pay for most. Take the average working And he should ask his well-paid senior colleagues, both employees and elected councillors, to do the same. With his kind of salary, he’s far better placed to lose a month’s income than are many of his more junior employees to lose their entire job. And what will be the effect of these redundancies on those who receive services from CWaC, such as children and older people, who seem to be targeted with reduced services every time a council is a bit short of money? Greater efficiency and better services has been the mantra of this new council – let us hope they can really come up with the goods. VERA ROBERTS Chair, Eddisbury and Weaver Vale Liberal Democrats,

Value them or lose them

HIGH street shops are closing at a dramatic rate – some say up to 100 every day. It’s bad news for local traders, many of which were struggling before the recent economic woes in the face of competition from bigger retailers. It’s bad news for all of us too! Small businesses are the un-

ANSWERS WANTED: Our reader wants top Tories in Westminster to answer his complaints that local authorities are wasting money. life. In the public sector after 30 years graft, someone in their mid 50s retires on 75% of their final salary. In the private sector, they work until they are 65 and retire on a pittance. D L MCKENNA Peregrine Close, Winsford

Modest claims as councillor

IN RESPONSE to the recent outrage at some MPs’ expenses, I share the public’s disgust with those MPs who sung heroes of the high street and do a fantastic job. They just need the support of their local residents. We’d encourage everyone to give their local high street shops and local tradespeople a chance. And if you find a good one – tell your friends and families and spread the word. Undoubtedly, chain and convenience stores have a place on the high street, but the British high street is worth saving. If we pull together, we can give it a fighting chance. PETER VICARY-SMITH Chief executive, Which?

Liberty and justice for all

IN A scathing attack on the excellent BNP EU election victory in the North West, MEP Chris Davies says ‘the founding principles of liberty, justice and tolerance must be safeguarded and strengthened’. We agree entirely. Liberty demands freedom of association and freedom of speech, even for parties that you dislike. Justice means that the members of all political parties should be able to participate in elections without police/media

have misused the system, but they are a minority. I’ve been a councillor in Cheshire for the past 11 years and can assure your readers our expenses are published annually on the council website and usually printed in the local press. I invite anyone to challenge me about my claims which have always been moderate, I do not drive so use public transport, share car journeys or cycle to meetings. It has been a genuine privilege to be a member of Cheshire County Council, now CWaC and, if I’m elecintimidation, and outright violence by opposition thugs. Tolerance means there will be views that you dislike, but they should be respected and tolerated like your own. It’s such a shame the new Lab-Lib-Con party demonstrated no such concerns about liberty, justice and tolerance – let alone truth and honesty – during the EU elections. I might add that if the other parties hadn’t totally disregarded the will and views of the general public for the last 20 years, the BNP would not be the political force it is today. But Mr Davies skips over the difficult issues we face and tries to denigrate the only party who will tell the truth. RALPH ELLIS BNP Cheshire West

Full of flannel and bluster

WATCHING last night’s episode of Question Time reinforced my view of the contempt politicians have for us. They still try to flannel us by blaming the expenses scandal and racism. No it wasn’t. It was the policies that have been followed these past 30 years.

ted as the MP for Eddisbury at the next General Election, I promise my constituents I’ll keep my feet firmly on the ground and as often as possible be here in Cheshire rather than in Westminster. I stand as someone who believes government should be closer to the people they seek to represent. I’ve no desire to be in London longer than absolutely necessary. My home is, and always has been, here in Cheshire. I have a young family and as a mum I want to be home as many nights as I can. I promise you I’ll not have a second home to flip and there will be no claims for bath plugs or duck houses! If elected I’ll rent or lodge in London for the three-tofour nights I have to be there and be in my home for the rest of the time. I’ll take my responsibilities very seriously. CLLR PAT MERRICK Parliamentary Spokesperson for the Labour Party in Eddisbury In Labour’s case, we looked forward to the reversal of the privatisation of the NHS, we hoped for a condemnation of the privatisation of the water industry, we would gladly cheer the nationalisation of the gas and electric companies, we eagerly awaited their condemnation of the Thatcher regime and the dismembering of many of her policies, but what did they do? Nothing! They did nothing while the rest of the world sacked and pillaged our manufacturing base, our fishing fleet, our steel industry, our coal mines and the glass and pottery industries. And after this mass auction by Blair, Brown and Thatcher, it meant they didn’t have enough money to pay the bills. What did they do? Raid the pension funds, create more stealth taxes, crucify the motorist, put up prescription charges, create a health and safety regime... And if that wasn’t enough to destroy the country, how about making an excuse for a phoney war and fermenting racism against the Muslims so they can introduce terrorism laws and install thousands of CCTV cameras to keep watch. Politicians talk of general election. Good, bring it on. BRIAN L ROBERTS Silver Haired Brigade, Cheshire

Cannabis cautions

TWO men have been cautioned after police raided a house in Northwich and found several cannabis plants growing. They admitted cultivating the plants after being arrested in the operation on Thursday. Police officers forced entry to the house on Middlewich Road, Rudheath, and discovered a ‘low-level’ number of plants. ■ A man received a street caution after police raided his house in Northwich. He was found to be in possession of cannabis when officers went to an address in Oak Street in the town centre last week.

BUILDERS raised the roof on Cuddington and Sandiway’s new village hall, last week. The project, which saw the Norley Road pavilion demolished and replaced with a large modern building, is now reaching its final stage. Builders are now turning their attention to the interior of the hall, which will be used by various groups, sports clubs and societies.

Author gives pupils the write advice AN AWARD-WINNING author gave pupils some valuable advice when he visited a Winsford school. Melvin Burgess, who recently won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, held workshops at Verdin High School for students in Year 7 and 8. Pupils gained first hand experience of how a successful writer works and were given the opportunity to develop their own writing expertise. Burgess’ novels Doing It and

VERDIN HIGH Junk have been described as controversial, but the North West author has been praised for engaging teenagers with reading through writing about various social issues. School librarian Suzanne Heaven said: “Melvin has got a close relationship with the school and has been coming for the past three or four years. “He is a very amiable character

and is very interesting to talk to. The kids here just love his books. “Some of his publications have been deemed to be controversial but he covers sensitive topics such as teenage sex and drug addiction is a sensitive and accessible way. “Literacy is very important and this visit was part of the school’s English and literacy programme.” Burgess’s books are written from a teenager’s perspective and his latest, Nicolas Cane, is a disturbing reworking of Dickens’ Oliver Twist.

GREENER PUPILS: As part of Victoria Road Primary’s commitment to improving the environment, the Northwich school’s Eco Council invited Pauline Manclarke from Groundworks to talk to pupils about the value of composting and how to use compost bins correctly. Groundworks also donated two compost bins to school so that the children can start composting as soon as possible.

Forums aim to give you a say ACTION plans with real street level impact is the aim of new boards being set up across Cheshire West to deliver the services people say they want. Fourteen community forums, where residents can put forward their concerns and aspirations to councillors and other agencies such as the police, are already underway.

through their local forum. The bigger issues that the forums and other local representative bodies such as parish and town councils and residents’ and voluntary groups cannot deal with alone will be passed up to one of five area boards. The boards will pool resources and budgets to respond comprehensively to the specific needs of each area, reduce inequalities and give an accurate picture of issues such as crime and safety, health and access to services. The five boards will cover Ellesmere Port, Chester, Rural West, Winsford and Rural East,

Northwich and Rural North. They will comprise of two CWaC councillors, a council director, a parish or town councillor, and representatives from agencies such as the police, primary care trust, transport and Job Centre. The approach aims to put residents at the heart of local decision-making. Cllr Lynn Riley said: “People are fed-up with a ‘one size fits all approach’ and want a greater say over the look and feel of their neighbourhood. This new model enables them to raise issues and to bring their ideas and aspirations to the table.”

Farm’s organic award

Sports photos allowed

THE Cheshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England has awarded a ‘Buy Local’ accolade to Whatcroft’s River Organic farm in Northwich. The award was presented by the CPRE’s North West regional chairman Nick Thompson at a food celebration event in Knutsford. Simon Bennett runs the organic farm, called Shipbrook Hill Farm, which also has a shop, cafe, nature walks and invites schools and other groups to book visits. He is also running the Whatfest music festival on the farm later this month.

THE privacy watchdog has ruled that using pictures of school sports events in local papers does not break data protection rules. A row erupted last week after a primary school in Devon banned sports day pictures, saying they were against the law. But David Smith, the deputy information commissioner, said such actions are down to what he called ‘data protection myths’. He added: “Photographs taken for the family photo album are exempt from the Act and citing it to stop people taking photos or filming their children at school is wrong too.”

Trust makes beeline to help

SUPER SERVICE: Staff from Cliff Dickenson and Son receive their award from Ford’s vice president of marketing Ingvar Sviggum and managing director Nigel Sharp.

Coveted award for car dealer A WINSFORD car dealership is celebrating after it received a top award for customer satisfaction. Cliff Dickenson and Son, a Ford dealer on Station Road, was given the coveted Chairman’s Award after it was rated one of the car firm’s finest UK dealerships by its customers.

Dealer principal Chris Winward said: “We’re delighted and proud to receive the Chairman’s Award. It is the ultimate test of the service we provide because it is judged by our customers. “It is a real tribute to the excellence and dedication of all our staff and a fitting recognition of their commitment to customer satisfaction.”

COUNCILLORS are to take a closer look at plans to increase the height of a T-Mobile phone mast in Great Budworth. The operator is seeking approval to add a 5m extension to its 15m tower, on Green Belt land next to Belmont Hall, and replace the six 2G antennas with three 2G and three 3G. Parish councillors, conservationists and neighbours oppose the plans. Great Budworth Parish Council says it has ‘grave concerns’ about the visual impact on the tree canopy. The village Amenity Society also feels it would be intrusive. Neighbours at Garden Cottage, 75m from the installation, say they are ‘seriously concerned’ about increased health risks and that Cransley School is within 400m. Planning officers at say the upgrade is acceptable as the basic installation in a heavily wooded copse already exists. They say it is preferable to another mast in Green Belt. But planning committee chairman Cllr Ralph Oultram says the decision should be deferred to enable a site visit to take place.

MRS IRENE LEWIS

THE funeral took place on June 17 of Mrs Irene Lewis, of Weaverham, who died peacefully on June 5 at Avondale Lodge Nursing Home, aged 74.

A service at St Mary’s Parish Church, Weaverham, conducted by the Rev Andrew Brown, was followed by committal at Walton Lea. Irene was born in Liverpool and brought up in Aintree. She left school aged 14 and was employed as a nanny in London. She moved to Weaverham in 1950 with her family and was initially employed at Dones’ Dairy in Hodge Lane before becoming an auxiliary nurse at Hefferstone Grange Hospital. After marrying her husband Joe in 1954, she set up home at Marbury, moving for a short time to Delamere before finally moving back to Weaverham. Before retirement, she worked as a cleaner at ICI and AMEC. Devoted to her family, Mrs Lewis enjoyed baking, knitting and sewing. She is survived by her husband Joe, children Malcolm, John, Raymond, Mandy and Tracey, together with 17 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Floral tributes, sympathy cards and donations for the Alzheimer’s Society were gratefully received. Arrangements: Bridge.

Go-ahead for more Sure Start centres

TWO new Sure Start children’s centres have been approved in Mid Cheshire. The applications were put forward by Cheshire West and Chester Council at Over Hall Primary School, Ludlow Close, Winsford, and Barnton Primary, Townfield Lane. At Over Hall, planning officers say there will be a new wing linked to an existing community room and nursery building. No objections have been raised by Winsford Town Council or neighbours.

However, occupiers say they are concerned about the security of the school grounds and believe there should be adequate fencing to deal with anti-social behaviour. They also feel consideration should be given to additional noise from traffic and children. Additional planting is proposed, especially to the rear of parking spaces next to houses on Ludlow Close. At a Cheshire West planning board meeting, permission was agreed on an 8-0 vote, with one abstention.

Meanwhile, at Barnton Primary, planning officers say the centre will use part of the school building. Almost 200sq m of the existing school will be refurbished to create the centre, including two infant classrooms. There will also be a small extension for a new entrance and a sheltered buggy store. Objections were raised by neighbours at 108 Townfield Lane who say the development will be close to their home. Planning officers say although the centre will be within

18m of the property, it will largely occupy existing buildings. There is the possibility ante-natal classes and a dad’s group will meet in the evening but not beyond 9pm in the week. The centre had unanimous permission. Parking issues at the school are to be brought to the attention of the head teacher, although councillors heard that, based on experience elsewhere, it is thought most users of the centre will not arrive by car.

Midnight walkers’ feet of endurance CELEBRATIONS are under way at St Luke’s Hospice after fundraisers raised £340,000 in the fifth annual Midnight Walk. The streets of Crewe and Nantwich were awash with colour as 1,766 women, wearing neon orange tee-shirts, took part in the 13-mile fundraiser to and from Reaseheath College. Residents lined the streets to show their support while passing cars pulled up to cheer the walkers on and make donations to the stewards. Walkers were entertained by Laurel and Hardy impersonators along the way. It is not too late to show your support to St Luke’s by sponsoring the doctors and nurses. Donations can be sent to St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice, Grosvenor House, Queensway, Winsford CW7 4AW.

Parking fears scupper flats plan

COUNCILLORS have rejected the advice of planners and turned down plans for four new flats in Barnton. The scheme was submitted by Mr S Davenport and was on vacant sloping land beside 107 Runcorn Road. The development was reported to Cheshire West’s planning committee at the request of Marbury councillor Norman Wright (Con) as there were no proposals for off-street car parking. Barnton Parish Council objected due to the lack of parking and argued the apartments would have a detrimental effect on people living nearby due to the lack of spaces. Planning officers said the redevelopment would fit in well with nearby terrace properties. Recommending approval, subject to conditions, they suggested a legal agreement to secure a contribution of £2,034 to improve open space in the area. Environmental officers said measures should be included to protect the apartments from noise. Development control manager Mark Lynch told councillors the lack of parking had been looked at ‘very carefully’ by highway officers and would be in line with national advice as the local shops were in walking distance. Cllr Malcolm Byram (Con, Marbury) pointed out there were double yellow lines on the road while Cllr Wright argued there was constant congestion. He said the occupiers would have nowhere to park. Deputy chairman Cllr Andrew Storrar (Con, Saughall) asked: “What are the chances of success at an appeal?” Mr Lynch felt refusal would place the council in a difficult situation with the risk they would be faced with costs. Councillors decided to reject plans on a 5-4 vote.

Suicide errors rap for police OFFICERS from Cheshire Constabulary have been criticised by the Independent Police Complaints Commission for the way they handled a 999 call about a suicide. Duane Syers, 20, was found hanging in woods near Warrington last July, but an IPCC report has revealed that a number of mistakes were made when deploying officers to the scene. Police had received an emergency call from a man, allegedly sounding drunk, who told staff in the police control room that another male was about to ‘string himself up’. The report concluded that officers on the ground were given an incorrect address and were not advised that Mr Syers was attaching a rope to a tree. It also states that a dog unit was diverted away from the location after police received reports of a prowler nearby. A sergeant was also criticised for his ‘failure to not adequately supervise the incident’. As a result of the IPCC report, officers have since been given verbal guidance, including a review of how to handle emergency 999 calls made by the public.

Show makes impression TOP celebrity impersonator Jan Ravens visits The Lowry in Salford Quays on Friday with her national tour A Funny Look at Impressions. Best known for impersonating countless celebrities and public figures in Dead Ringers on both Radio 4 and BBC2, she also recently stepped out on Strictly Come Dancing, and won Celebrity Mastermind last year. Outside of her work, Ravens is a patron of Changing Faces, a charity that supports people with facial disfigurements, and is also an ambassador for Action Aid. Now she makes her solo stage debut showing how she creates her remarkable impressions, with an insightful look at the world of funny voices and silly wigs. Many of her best-loved characters will be making appearances along the way – from Anne Robinson and Nigella Lawson to Ann Widdecombe and the Queen, plus of course her unforgettable takes on Fiona Bruce and Kirsty Wark. A tour spokesman says: “No woman in the public eye can hide from Ravens’ unique brand of satirical comedy.” The shows starts at 8pm. Tickets are £14, phone the box office on 0870 787 5780 or visit www.thelowry.com.

STRONGEST LINK: Jan Ravens as Anne Robinson.

Bard outside A SPECIAL Middle Eastern score has been created for Alsager Community Theatre’s open air summer production of Shakespeare’s A Comedy Of Errors at Little Moreton Hall. Local composer Richard Tadman is the force behind the music, which will be performed live on mandolin, recorder, hand-drum and accordion. Director Maree Thorpe said: “Light though it is, The Comedy of Errors is more than its improbable plot. Interlaced with the comedy is a disquieting sense of dislocation and loss of a sense of self.” The show is performed outdoors on July 9-11 and July 16-18 at 7.45pm. Tickets are £12, phone the box office on 01260 276165.

Charlatans’ path to cross the Atlantic By Ben Coulbeck

T

HE Charlatans have announced a gruelling, two-month tour of North America after they complete a summer of festival appearances and gigs across Europe and the UK. Northwich’s most successful band are appearing in Romania, Croatia and Spain next month as well as playing to thousands at Guilfest in Surrey and the Stockton Riverside Fringe Festival. In August, Tim Burgess, Martin Blunt, Tony Rogers, Jon Brookes and Mark Collins are staying in the UK as they play in West Yorkshire, Scotland and Cumbria as well as Summer Sundae Weekender in Leicestershire. They will then head across the Atlantic to play a 22-date, two-month tour of America and Canada with standout gigs in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and New York. The tour comes 12 months after the band’s last album, You Cross My Path, was released and is yet another sign that Mid Cheshire’s indie superstars are not planning to hang up their guitars yet.

TOUR PLANS: The Charlatans are heading to Europe and North America this summer and autumn. After their first album, Some Friendly, was released in 1990, The Charlatans shot to fame and fortune, earning awards and acclaim both nationally and back home in Mid Cheshire. Platinum and gold discs were

hung on the walls at the former Omega Music store on Witton Walk and Charlie’s Cafe on Witton Street was featured on the front cover of the band’s greatest hits album, Melting Pot. The Charlatans’ bassist, Martin

Blunt, still lives in Northwich and can be seen at local music events, including those being held at De Bees Music Bar, Winsford. ■ For details of tickets and tour dates, visit the website www.thecharlatans.net.

Etchings aim to shock and inspire ETCHINGS by two of the country’s most inventive and subversive artists are to be showcased in Runcorn, writes Paul Glynn. My Giant Colouring Book by Jake and Dinos Chapman opens at The Brindley on Saturday. The Chapman brothers first came to prominence as part of the Young British Artists movement of the 1990s. They featured in the Royal Academy’s seminal 1997 exhibition Sensation, showing a sculptural version of Goya’s

Disasters of War. They returned to Goya’s work in 2003, causing outrage for painting their own ghoulish imagery over an original set of etchings. My Giant Colouring Book returns to this method of working, this time appropriating join-the-dot drawings from a children’s book. The innocent illustrations trigger fantastical imagery far removed from the original dot formations.

The free exhibition runs from Saturday until Sunday, August 2. The Brindley gallery is open Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm and on Saturdays from 10am-3pm. ■ For details, call 0151 907 8360 or go online at www.thebrindley.org.uk.

Battle of the pain barrier THE Imperial War Museum North in Manchester has a photo exhibition coming up – July 18 to October 18 – showing the true grit of our fighting forces as they battle through the pain barrier. Alastair Thain’s show Marines comprises six portraits of young marines in distress following a tough training run. Using a unique outdoor framing system, marines are displayed back-to-back in three 5m frames outside the museum. The images were created using the same ultra high-definition format that NASA uses to photograph Earth from the Space Shuttle. A museum spokesman says the extreme resolution and the scale of the images result in an ‘unprecedented visual intimacy between the viewer and the marines, starkly exposing the raw emotions and, in some cases, anguish on the marines’ faces by transcending what the eye can normally see’. Visitors can continue to explore the themes raised by the display inside the museum where the permanent displays and special exhibitions focus on how lives have been, and still are, shaped by war and conflict. No stranger to the intensity of portraiture, Alastair Thain made his name photographing 20th century icons, becoming internationally recognised for capturing the humanity behind enigmatic personas like Andy Warhol and Jack Nicholson. An obsessive quest to pursue technical advances that will allow him to fulfil his vision, place him in a unique position among contemporary photographic artists, evidenced by the 15 years he spent devising his unique cameras in order to achieve large-format images that are incredibly precise. Alastair Thain’s passion for pursuing humanitarian issues runs throughout his work and extends beyond portraiture, illustrated in his documentation of the war-ravaged city of Sarajevo in the Edge of Madness exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall in 1997. Marines conveys Thain’s concern with war’s destructive effect by combining the subject matter with the universal communication channel of facial expression to convey the details of human suffering. ■ You can meet the artist at 2.15pm on Saturday, September 19, at the museum’s Learning Studio. The event is free. The Imperial War Museum North is open every day from 10am-6pm with free admission. It is at The Quays in Trafford Wharf Road, Trafford Park, Manchester – close to the Harbour City Metrolink and Junction 9 of the M60.

ROUNDUp Cowley breaks record

ANGLING: Dave Cowley reeled in a record haul to win the John Burdett Memorial Match on Heesom’s Pool on Sunday. Barnton and Frodsham AC’s annual event was held to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice and Cowley’s magnificent 43-7-0 of skimmers, crucians and tench smashed his own record set last year. John Dickens was second with 33-10-0 with Mark Davies, third with 23-1-0, and Mick Cowley, fourth with 19-6-0, completing the pay out. On Friday, Hideyoshi Warburton won the eight-12 years group in the second-round match of the Juniors Early Season Series on the Middle Cistern with 1-9-0 of rudd skimmers. Matthew Ayres won the won the 13-16 years group with 3-14-8 of roach, rudd and skimmers. Last Wednesday, Arthur Kenney set a new match record of 30-4-0 in the William Haddock Trophy on Heesom’s Pool, ahead of Bob Hughes and Mick Cowley. Later in the day, Ian Morrison claimed victory in the second round of the Wednesday Evening Series on the River Weaver at Anderton. His 12-1-0 was too good for Bob Foster and Steve Walker. Last Monday, Walker hauled in victory in the second round of the Appleton Thorn AC Cup on the Oak Tree length of the River Weaver. His 13-7-0 of bream and roach bettered the efforts of Wayne Percival and Tony Mellor.

City head for Wincham

FOOTBALL: Premiership big-spenders Manchester City top the billing after Witton Albion released their pre-season friendly fixture list. The UniBond First Division South club welcome Mark Hughes’ City on Wednesday, August 12, at 7pm. City, who have tabled a £25m bid for Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o, and boast a squad brimming with international world-class players, have agreed to help Witton with their pre-season preparations before the season starts on Saturday, August 15. Witton have also confirmed friendly fixtures with: Rossendale United (away on 14/07), Welshpool (home on 18/07), Fleetwood Town (home on 21/07), Barrow (home on 23-07), Runcorn Linnets (home on 28/07), Rhyl (away on 01/08), Warrington (away on 04/08).

Cheshire hit top form

CRICKET: Cheshire are looking down on the rest of the Minor Counties Championship after they claimed a thrilling victory over Berkshire at Chester Boughton Hall. Oulton Park skipper Nathan Dumelow took 5-96 while debutant and Park player Ric Moore claimed 2-23 as Berkshire posted 256. In reply, Cheshire totalled an impressive 402-8 declared with Park’s Ben Spendlove hitting 81 with Moore delighting with 61. Berkshire’s second innings of 317 meant that Cheshire had just 29 overs to reach a winning total and that they did as Moore (50) and Spendlove (35) led the way to 172-7. Cheshire, now top of the league, take on Herefordshire at Nantwich from Sunday, July 5.

Park through to quarters

CRICKET: Oulton Park have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Fred Graham Twenty20 Trophy after squeezing past Chester Boughton Hall in a thriller. Rick Moore hit 79 as Park made 160-6 from their 20 overs at Little Budworth and in reply, Chester made 160-7. Park progressed due to losing one wicket less and will now travel to Oxton for a place in the semi-finals (to be played by August 1). ■ The Pinfold Lane side are also into the quarter-finals of the Cheshire Cup after they posted 414-5 against Cheshire County League Division Two side Middlewich. Nathan Dumelow (105no), Rick Moore (97), Danny Leech (72) and Jonny Kettle (57) weighed in and in reply Middlewich could only muster 122 (Dumelow 4-14). ■ Oakmere Ladies were dumped out of the Knockout Cup at the semi-final stage by Appleton Tigers who posted 132-2. In reply, Oakmere saw their final hopes dashed as they closed on 93-6 with Hayley Coutts (28) their mainstay.

Oakmere draw in basement battle

HOPEFUL: Ian Eaton. tc280708eaton

CHESHIRE County League strugglers Oakmere kept their tails up with a determined draw at relegation rivals Brooklands. The South Manchester hosts declared on 232-5 as the Overdale Lane outfit failed to take regular wickets. In reply, the visitors were in with a shout as Peter Yearsley (60no) and skipper Ian Eaton (52) impressed. But it was not to be as Brooklands’ fierce bowling attack restricted Oakmere to 196-5. Eaton said:“To be fair they

bowled very well and we lost wickets at key times. With ten overs to go we needed about 10 runs per over so we were still in the game. “The main thing was that we didn’t get beat. They gained a few points on us but we are still in touch. “Even if we do go down, the main thing is that we learn from the experience and hopefully bounce back. “We have got a big game against Middlewich so if we can get anything out of it then we can kick on from there.”

■ Oulton Park march on in the Premier League after putting hosts Neston to the sword. Batting first, Park smashed their way to 309-7 declared with skipper Nathan Dumelow hitting 83. Also finding the boundary on regular occasion was Danny Leech (67) and Ben Spendlove (52). Defending their total, Park eased their way to victory and maintained their position in second, as Dumelow (3-3) and Rick Moore (3-40) helped restrict Neston to 182.

Vintage Hayes builds title hopes Cricket

The victory at Ashley underlined the Moss Farm outfit’s status as dark horses for promotion. Put into bat, Northwich were struggling on 46-4 before Matt Jamieson (71), skipper John O’Sullivan (33) and Mike Brandon (26) steered them to 195 all out. In reply, Ashley smashed the ball to all areas racing to 38 from seven overs but the introduction of former Winnington Park skipper Hayes turned the game. He returned magnificent figures of 8-13 from 15.4 overs as hosts Ashley crumbled to 114. Skipper O’Sullivan was delighted to see his side climb to third in the league and said: “We want to increase the pressure on the leaders and continue our push for promotion.” Rivals Winnington Park were also in celebration mood after halting a worrying run of defeats with a home victory over Malpas at the Recreation Ground. Putting their visitors into bat, Phil Amatiello (3-36) and Bryan Shingler (3-12) led the way as Malpas made 145-9. In reply Park finally grabbed their chance and won by reaching 149-7 thanks to Martin Evans (34) and Craig Walsh (31no). Elsewhere in Division One, Davenham fell to a five-wicket defeat at Butcher’s Stile after making just 122. Visitors Ashton-on-Mersey claimed a comfortable victory with 123-5 and returned Davenham to the bottom of the league in the process. In Division Two, Weaverham had a superb win at Kingsley after posting 183-8 (Barry Crellin 53, Rob McMillan 48). The Russetts, who are now fourth, ripped through the hosts batting line-up as Kingsley made just 84 (McMillan 6-8).

Yet another win for Valley veteran Kemp

RIDING solo, Alan Kemp recorded his 14th success of the summer season after taking victory in the Brendan Chiu memorial road race. Weaver Valley star Kemp, who was the club’s only entrant to the Bridgnorth event, could not catch overall winner Dave Cummins of Macclesfield. But Kemp, in typical fashion, was the first over 60s rider home after an

Cycling

uphill sprint finish to the Shropshire event. It came after two further victories for Kemp as he won at Oulton Park last Tuesday and also in the Tommy Simpson Memorial Road Race based at Simpson’s home town of Harworth, Yorkshire.

■ The latest round of the National 50-mile Time Trial Championships was moved to Jodrell Bank where Weaver Valley riders were involved. From a field of 120 riders, Dave Fearon (two hours three minutes 11 secs) and Rob Kilby (2:10.18) finished 78th and 97th respectively. In the 25-mile Warrington RC four-man time-trial, Dave McKay, Nic Butterworth, Jon Comboy and

Richard Munroe registered a time of one hour four minutes, despite the quad suffering a spate of punctures. Weaver Valley will be holding their club night on Wednesday with a 10-mile time trial at Byley. A club spokesman said: “Newcomers are welcome to try their hand at the unpaced race against the clock, starting at 7pm.”

UNLUCKY: Northwich teen rider Adam Boyle suffered engine trouble at Donington Park at the weekend. “A disappointing end to a long four days. We now must wait until the next meeting in mid July. It seems such a long season already but we are only

half way through and I still have to remind my self Adam is only 16 years old, racing against riders a lot older.” Adam started riding in the mini-mo-

tos series alongside fellow Northwich race ace Conner Behan. He has applied to Mid Cheshire College in Hartford to study Mechanics.

SILVER SUCCESS: Stevie Stockton.

VALE Royal star Stevie Stockton earned a silver success at the National Under 23 Championships. Her under-par time of four minutes 29 seconds was good enough for second at the Bedford International Athletics Stadium on Sunday. Meanwhile clubmate Rebecca Craigie earned northern pride after she claimed a silver medal at the Northern Athletics Track and Field Champion-

Athletics ships. The Knights Grange club’s cross country England international finished second in the under 20s women’s 1,500m final at Sport City, in Manchester. Her time of four minutes 26 seconds would have been enough for gold had Craigie been competing in the senior women’s race.

Two other Vale Royal athletes also returned with medals as Eleanor Owen earned a bronze in the U20 women’s long jump. Owen was fourth in the triple jump after clubmate Ruth Howard won the bronze. Elsewhere at the championships, James Griffiths narrowly missed out on a medal as he finished fourth in the senior men’s 1,500m while Richard Tranter suffered the same fate in the U20s triple jump.

Star pupil Liam is so chilled out for glory Skiing

competitions. In April, he earned a silver medal in the Trespass Skiercross event at the Brits in Laax Championships, Switzerland. He also impressed in the Animal Slopestyle event (23rd) and the Quicksilver Big Air event (21st).

NORTHWICH rider Adam Boyle was frustrated after an engine fault left him as a spectator in the latest round of the Thundersport 600 series at Donington Park.

The 16-year-old competitor, who has just completed his GCSEs at Rudheath High School, was forced to withdraw from Race Two after his Triumph 675 blew a head gasket. In Race One, Adam had finished 11th after starting on the grid in 12th from a field of 34 riders following a promising qualifying session. It was the first time Adam had ridden his Triumph around the Derbyshire race circuit and his team, including dad Shaun, had been working hard to get the bike’s engine and gears just right for the challenging twists and turns of Donington. Shaun said: “Adam finished the 10 lap race in 11th position but knew he could do better in the second race as the gearing needed changing, we analysed the sector times and knew we could change the gearing to give him more top end into Craner Curves and up Starkys. “We replaced the chain and sprockets and geared it accordingly looking forward to race two with better expectations but it was not to be as just after the warm-up lap the head gasket blew and we were pushed off the line to watch from the pit wall.

DOOR IS CLOSED TO PREMIER Football

By Ben Coulbeck

WITTON Albion will not be returning to the UniBond Premier despite a rival northern club going out of business.

Newcastle Blue Star withdrew from the league after announcing unpaid debts of £150,000 and being unable to salvage the financial situation. But rather than send Witton back to the Premier, as the next club in line following relegation last season, the UniBond League has confirmed that the Premier will continue with just 21 teams. It means manager Gary Finley and chairman Mark Harris will continue their preparations for the UniBond First Division South. Harris told the Chronicle that he was satisfied with the league’s decision. He said: “Because Newcastle Blue Star resignation from the league took effect after the UniBond Leagues were constituted then the league will stay at 21, unless the FA were to bring any pressure to bear which is pretty unlikely. There is no way around it. “It’s highly regrettable Newcastle Blue Star took this long to make their decision and I know that the FA made strenuous efforts to contact NBS before the AGM.” Despite the door being closed after Blue Star withdrew from the league, officials, players and supporters of Witton will be interested in the uncertainty surrounding the future of Leeds club Farsley Celtic. The Blue Square North club is facing a winding up order and will attend a hearing today at the High Court in London. Outstanding debts owed to the Inland Revenue has forced the club to enter administration and a decision on whether Farsley can continue to play at that level will be taken. “If Farsley become a phoenix club and start from the bottom and the FA are minded of the situation, there an awful lot of circumstances that need to go our way. But to be honest, it will make life very difficult for us as we are trying to plan to a budget and sign players based on playing in the South.” Witton have announced five preseason friendlies so far with more expected to be confirmed soon. They are: 14/07 Rossendale United (a), 21/07 Fleetwood Town (h), 25/07 Southport (h), 28/07 Runcorn Linnets (h), 12/08 Manchester City Youth (home at 7pm).

AWESOME: The inter boys team of Mike Koral, Jason Oswell, Luke Johnson and Kieran Berrington with team manager Tony Brown and head of PE Jonny Goodall.

Financial future is looking brighter Northwich Vics NORTHWICH Vics owner Jim Rushe has revealed that the football club’s debts are being slashed. Rushe told the Chronicle that the financial difficulties at the club are slowly being addressed and that he has also been granted a deadline extension to buy the Victoria Stadium. He also said that Vics were close to being taken out of administration and that the transfer embargo was in the process of being lifted, to allow manager Andy Preece to bring in players for the Blue Square North campaign. Rushe said: “Virtually all the football clubs that were owed money have been paid and all the players have been paid. There are a couple of lads that we still need to settle things with but once that is done then Northwich Victoria Football Club will be fully paid up. That is a huge positive for us. “Hopefully the CVA will go well, the creditors meeting will go well and soon we will be taken out of administration and we can move forward. That will be a great weight lifted off us. “The fixed charge receivers have given us an extension to buy the ground until the first week in August. “When you are ejected from the league you are expected to be playing in, all you figures change. We would have been in a lot of financial trouble had we not won the appeal.” The terms of the Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) is being decided between the tax man and Vics’ administrators Refresh Recovery. Once it is agreed, then it should prove that Vics are serious about starting to repay their six-figure debts. ■ Northwich Vics Supporters Trust is holding its AGM tomorrow at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome, it is free to enter and their will be a quiz after the meeting which will be held at the Victoria Stadium.
