‘Terrible tragedy’ ■ Such a terrible tragedy, what a great rider and competitor. Huw Vaughan, Sydney, Australia ■ It’s such a tragedy – he had so much potential and is a great loss to the sport. My thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time. Liam S ■ He was a really nice lad and was well-liked by everyone. It’s such a sad loss for his family and racing. Craig was one of a crop of good young riders who were the future of British racing and I took a chance on him to ride for our team in 2006 because I thought he was the pick of the bunch. I saw a lot of my determination in him and gave him the chance to learn the world circuits the hard way, hoping it would stand him in good stead in the future. After our team finished he was determined to stay on the world scene and was beginning to show his talent this season in the World Supersport Championship. Our thoughts go out to his long-term partner Karen, his family and friends and his team. Carl Fogarty, former World Superbike champion

Group calls for help to track owls BIRD-LOVERS across Mid Cheshire are invited to join in a survey to help worried experts log the whereabouts of barn owls in the area. Until last year the numbers of breeding barn owls have been steadily increasing but this year numbers have tumbled probably due to a shortage of food such as shrews and voles. A Mid Cheshire Barn Owl Conservation Group spokesman said: “The barn owl seems to instinctively know when these mammals are having a low breeding year and regulates its breeding activity accordingly. “This seems to be the situation in

Legion club closes due to lack of customers By Dave Goodban THE headquarters of the Barnton and Anderton branch of the Royal British Legion has closed after almost 50 years. The club on Meadow Drive has been in use since 1960, but shut down on Thursday because of financial problems. “It’s a cash-flow problem, a lack of customers,” said committee member Bryan Tarry. “There’s no money to keep it open – I can’t see there’s any chance of it reopening. It will be sorely missed, but the branch will be kept open.” The club is owned by the branch itself, not the Legion, and Mr Tarry, who has been on the committee since 1974, said a new HQ could one day be built in the village if, or when, the premises is sold off. He said: “Theoretically, as long as there’s a branch the money is held in trust for the branch. It could build a new HQ if the money’s there for developers and someone comes along with a good plan. But we’d still need people to use it.” The ladies’ section will now meet at the Barn Owl, while a venue for other meetings SAD DAY: The Barnton and Anderton Royal British Legion Club has closed because of financial problems.

COUNCIL chiefs are urging members of the public to be aware of ‘charity’ collectors operating in the area. The council is asking people to be aware that not all approaches for donations are from charities, and unless it is a registered charity there are no guarantees where or what the donations will be used for. Lead councillor for Community Safeguards, John Turnbull, said: “There are companies operating in this area that appear, at first glance, to be collecting for charity, but are in fact companies making a profit out of the collection. “Commonly these companies will drop leaflets through the door asking for old clothes, however, if you have old clothes and want to be sure of where they are going, it is advisable to take them to a charity shop.”

Culture of blame

I HOPE your readers will appreciate it if I don’t slide down to the same level of communication as local BNP supporter George Mather. His motto seems to be “don’t trouble me with the facts” or possibly “no matter what I’m unhappy about, it’s Labour’s fault.” Perhaps he was bitten by something wearing a red rosette when he was a child. A few simple facts which he can’t seem to get a grip on: ■ The triangle site was put into the borough plan for employment purposes in at least the 1980s – years before Labour took control of the borough council. ■ Labour did indeed keep it in the borough plan – guilty – but then the other parties had already agreed to it anyway. ■ The current planning application was approved in January 2006, two-and-a-half years after the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats re-took control of the council. Two questions: ■ Given the above facts why does he single out the Labour Party for his grievance when it had support from all parties. ■ If Mr Mather and “many other residents” truly believe that something untoward has happened it is incumbent on him as the law-abiding citizen I’m sure he is to name names and take the matter to the appropriate authorities. Has he done so? If so, when and with what result? People are entitled to complain and it’s good that they can use newspapers to do so but it can’t be right to impugn the integrity of local councillors and council officers without putting forward any evidence whatsoever. If the very same planning processes had concluded that it was not right to put the Triangle in the plan he presumably would have thought they were fine. Arthur Neil Robert Street Castle

Keep up the fight

IN REPLY to the forum posting about boy racers and loud music, a group of us have campaigned tirelessly for three years against the daily and nightly racing from the Marina car park up the bypass and back and even in Station Road – a 30mph area! The noise is unbearable and music accompanies the revving and back-firing. We’ve written to the Home Office, Noise Abatement Society, Steve O’Brien our MP and constantly call and write to the police, including Peter Fahy the chief of Cheshire police. They all say this racing with large exhausts can be stopped if the police have the will. They obviously don't. The Environmental Health Department, while acknowledging the detriment to health and this constant sleep deprivation till early morning,

say it’s not their remit to monitor noise levels on the road, it’s the police’s responsibility. We won’t give up our campaign, even though the police and Environmental Health keep passing the buck between them – maybe just one camera on the roundabout would help? Everyone who is severely affected by these yobs, as we are, should attend the regular police meetings. The next one is towards the end of August and will be posted in the local press. A Very Determined Resident Winsford.

Undignified sight

GEORGE Mather is sailing very close to the wind in his attacks on Arthur Neil – personal vendettas really should be conducted in private. Adults should learn that people do have different points of view and digging up dirt is undignified and very embarrassing for the Chronicle readers – live and let live gentlemen please. Jane Meadows, Northwich.

I USUALLY enjoy, though I do not always agree with, the letters of Mr Mather. I have always thought his comments sensible, though sometimes slightly over the top. I plead guilty to doing the same at times too. However, the point of my letter is that I was extremely saddened by his final assertion that he now supported the BNP. No matter how bad the main political parties are they are infinitely better than this racist bunch, for despite their protestations to the contrary, that is exactly what they are. My father, and others who fought in the last war, would be appalled this party should gain any support from decent British people. It is what they fought the last war for, to prevent the persecution of any person or persons on the grounds of race or religion. So, Mr Mather please reconsider your support of the BNP, I know you are not really their kind of person. WHS Northwich

Mayor is not needed to help raise charity cash I REPLY to the letter by Councillor Malcolm Gaskill regarding keeping the mayor job after April 2009. When the mayor is elected he and his escort both get a very generous allowance. Most people don’t want a mayor for Vale Royal after April 2009; the simple reason is that Vale Royal Borough Council will no longer exist. What official occasions would there be, when Vale Royal council would no longer exist? We could put the £75,000 per year to better use; for a start, filling in the potholes around Cheshire and more police on the streets We will still have a mayor for Winsford and Northwich At a time when most families are struggling to keep their heads above water, Mr Gaskill wants to keep this little perk but at our expense (they get paid) to raise monies for charities. Let me tell you, Mr Gaskill, every day ordinary people, able and disabled, in wind and rain stand outside shops with charity tins, have jumble sales, coffee morning and car boot sales, the list goes on, but the thing they all have in common is: They don’t get paid. Mr K UNWIN Walnut Ave, Weaverham

£75,000 per year for someone to dress up like a beardless Father Christmas? What a joke. Why not ask a retired person of some standing to do it? It would cost the taxpayer nothing as I am sure there are more than enough people out there who would do it for nothing, just for the chance to have the title ‘mayor’. I don’t want it as I am not retired, but if I was, I would do it for nothing to assist all the charities having a mayor apparently helps. Name and address supplied ■ HAVING read Malcolm

VALUE FOR MONEY? The Mayor of Vale Royal, Malcolm Gaskill, meets Thea Phillips-Kaye and Samuel Doe, both three, during teatime at Busy Bees Day Nursery in Northwich. VT190708BBEES Gaskill’s letter on the advantages of keeping the mayor from nowhere alive, it seems to me he puts forward very few ideas that those of us in Oliver’s Army could not shove a trusty pikestaff up. He should recall that Cromwell and his followers took up their muskets against the Royals and aristocracy in general, because the populous was brassed off. Why? Because in spite of having an elected parliament, the taxpayers’ voices were being ignored. Notice the similarity 400 years later. So let’s have a look at the points he raises. Where he gets his stats from that most people agree with the continuation of the post of Vale Royal mayor is a mystery. In letters to the local press, the only epistles in favour are from the councillors who voted for the status quo. Perhaps he would like to come and stand with me in my family business on Winsford Market and ask the punters what they think. Or wander round the shopping centre and talk to shoppers sitting there with their legs crossed because they are dying to spend a penny but the doors are still

locked on the town toilets. So let’s get to the economies. Whether it costs each household only £1 per year or not, £75,000 is a lot of brass that could be spent on more meaningful activities, for example giving kids something to do at night and the not so young having the fear of going out at night taken away. Fundraising! The ladies of our household, along with lots of others, recently raised £300,000 on their midnight walk without the presence of the mayor firing the starting pistol. Surely the present town mayors could take over the fundraising efforts of the borough mayor, along with the other meaningful activities. It seems a bit of a head-scratcher to justify spending £75,000 to raise £40,000 for local charities. And now we come to the bit in the letter that says ‘any input from the public would be appreciated’. How can we be sure that our politicians take our views on board? A fellow market trader recently e-mailed around a dozen local councillors complaining about the closure of the town’s toilets. Most of them wrote

back, all in agreement that the closure was a disgrace, unacceptable, a bad situation etc. I have also e-mailed both Malcolm Gaskill and the leader of the borough council, Leslie Ford, on this subject. Their replies are given below. Yes still waiting!! So you see having got inputs and opinions, experience shows that positive actions don’t necessarily follow. So do we believe our local politicians really act on our behalf or only think they do? In recent local elections, 77% of the electorate did not vote. So come on, Mr Mayor, let’s freeze this money until you can really prove that the electorate are behind you on this one and, for crying out loud, let’s get the town’s toilets open again. That’s what the public want! NIEL HODKINSON Chairman, Winsford Market Traders ■ OUR thanks to Cllr Gaskill for explaining why Vale Royal borough should continue to have a mayor costing £75,000 a year after it is disbanded. Here is another way, which has nothing to do with power and prestige, that he may wish to think about the cost. The £75,000 equates to the Council Tax bills of (say) 60 households. In other words, if this stupid, embarrassing, scheme was abandoned then 60 households need not have to pay their Council Tax at all. Councillors should view their spending in these terms rather than as a percentage of some huge abstract budget sum beyond the realms of their personal experience and which makes it easier to keep spending that bit more. Indeed, councillors could even pass the savings back to the people they serve by way of regular draws and ripping up the Council Tax demands of the lucky winners. Why, they may even become popular. MRS BROWN Barnton

Don't ever forget

SO THE Labour Government is to blame for the increase in power prices? Which party sold off the Electricity and Gas Companies? That’s right, it was state Funeral Thatcher and the Conservative Party which meant the Government cannot control prices in those sectors. Who closed down all the coal mines in this country so denying us an alternative energy source ? That’s right, the Conservative Party again.

Who re-nationalised the railway lines so now, instead of killing people because they are not maintained, are in their best condition for years – the Labour Party. Labour has poured billions into the National Health Service and education in the last ten years, how much do you think the Conservatives might have put in? I will tell you, very little. The Labour Party has its problems, but always remember working people, it is your party

and it invariably looks after you better than any Conservative government ever has. Just ask yourselves, what policy, brought in by the Conservatives in the last 50 years has helped you and your family? Alan Lowe, Melchett Crescent Rudheath

On the increase

HAVING read in the local press

Vale Royal Council’s proposal for a number of permanent Gypsy sites in the Vale Royal district, I wonder why Winsford is the only town to get two sites? Especially as we have a large site in Rilshaw Lane just being established. There's also another illegal site, set up around a house in Beechfields, Rookery Rise, several houses cum-sites in Grange Lane, also a permanent fairground operators site in New Road.

With these Gypsies always increasing their portfolio of houses in quiet, residential areas, I’d say they don’t intend to move to any council-run site. Does that mean then that Vale Royal are intending to import more gypsies? Nobody will be able to sell their house except to gypsies, that’s how they operate. If your thinking of leaving for a better class area, do it now! Worried, Winsford.

Creepy crawly tale to take centre stage at top theatre A STORY written during the school holidays has taken on epic proportions for a group of starry-eyed youngsters from Northwich. Anna Clare, nine, and her friends wrote the play one afternoon for something to do – never dreaming it would end up being performed at one of the North West’s leading theatres. The story was inspired by Anna and receives its premiere in the studio at Salford Quays theatre The Lowry on Sunday evening. Anna’s mum Tracey, a learning support lecturer at Mid Cheshire College, said: “Its a lovely life-affirming tale about a sad caterpillar who finds happiness at the ugly bug ball. They were all thrilled to bits

signed to review the case for closing Handley Hill Primary. “We could hear within four weeks but it could also take up to 26, but we’d like to think we’ll have a decision by the time the children go back to school,” said Cllr Parkinson.

The school was earmarked for closure in June last year as part of Cheshire County Council’s Transforming Learning Communities (TLC) review. The referral of the case to the ombudsman is the final throw of the dice for campaigners fighting to keep it open.

Crime fight starts early

PCSO Kevin McShane A WINSFORD police community support officer (PCSO) is hoping a new approach will stop youngsters becoming involved in crime. PCSO Kevin McShane has seen first-hand the problems that can be caused by young people during his time pounding the streets of Winsford. Now he is hoping to address this with the next generation of young people by paying regular visits to a local playgroup. He said: “I’ve been dropping in at Jumping Jelly Beans at the Cheviot Centre for a while. It’s a great way to get to know local people and to build relationships with youngsters from a very early age. “The aim is to build on these relationships as the children go from pre-school to primary school and then on to secondary education. “By the time they reach high school age we hope they will have a greater understanding of the police, more respect for the work officers do and, subsequently, will think harder about the effect their behaviour has on others.” So far the response from parents of the children and those who run the playgroup has been extremely positive. PCSO McShane added: “Everyone at the playgroup has been really supportive of what we are trying to do. “They are also using the contact as a way of passing on details of any problems or issues in their areas. “Because of their commitment with children it can often be difficult for them to make it to the Community Action Meetings or surgeries, so the playgroup is the perfect place for them to meet with me.” The playgroup is now on a summer break, but will return in September at the new venue of Handley Hill. Meanwhile, also starting in September, the Cheviot Centre will host an after school club, running from 3-5pm, for lone parents and their children.

Politician supports credit union WEAVER Vale MP Mike Hall dropped into the Information Centre in Northwich to sign up as a member of Cheshire Neighbours Credit Union this week. Mr Hall is encouraging his constituents to follow suit with the “credit crunch” still looming large across the country. He said: “The saving and loan facilities offered by the CNCU means even those on modest incomes could build up a nest egg for the future, and avoid the dangers of the high interest charges on loans that can come with other forms of borrowing.”

Suspects in custody over brutal assault THE three men accused of a sickening assault on a father-of-one outside his Winnington home have been remanded in custody by a judge at Chester Crown Court. Paul Blower, 19, Nigel Goolding, 20, and Joshua Spruce, 19, were charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm after 59-year-old taxi driver James Straiton was seriously assaulted in Park Road at 1.15am on Saturday, July 26. Mr Straiton, of Sandybank, remains in a “critical” condition at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, and has been on life support

By Dave Goodban since undergoing emergency surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain in the hours after he was attacked. He also sustained a broken nose, cheekbone and fractured ribs during the attack, and suffered vertebrae damage and a brain haemorrhage. He is likely to be left with serious brain damage if he survives. Police say he had into the street to remonstrate with a group of men making noise outside his ground floor flat. Goolding, of Cromwell Road, Win-

nington, and Spruce, of Alderley Road, Winnington, had their applications for bail rejected by Judge Nicholas Clarke on Tuesday morning. Blower, of Chapel Street, Wincham, made no application. The trio are scheduled to appear next on October 7, when they could enter pleas. Police investigating the attack are keen to speak to the driver of a white van seen on Park Road at the time Mr Straiton was assaulted, and believe he could be a key witness. ■ Anyone with information should call Det Sgt Colin Westgate on 01244 613258.

B-movie bonus for young artists at workshop date By Jane Matzen A MONSTER time was had by all when pupils of Kingsmead Primary School were encouraged to let their imaginations run riot at workshops run by Tatton Park Biennial artist Simon Woolham. A class of Year 5 pupils took inspiration for their creations from Woolham’s B Movie posters: Attack of the Killer Plants! and The Creeping Killer Smell! The posters, part of an art project called The Invasion, were inspired by the gigantic Gunnera in the gardens often referred to by visitors as The Triffids and the Stink Cabbage in the Arboretum. The artistic themes of his work: invasion, monsters, dreams and fantasies, held particular fascination for the youngsters. The arts biennial at Tatton Park is on until the end of September and features six semi-permanent works, 13 evolving commissions, and a substantial programme of tours, performances and talks. Events this weekend include video screenings and tours.

The money stolen, £8,621.17 in total, belonged to Mr Connett’s holding company Beaconet Ltd. Burgess – now living in Robin Hood Terrace, Nottingham – also stole £1,493 from a social club in Knutsford and fled from a B&B in Congleton without paying the £164 bill, both in February last year. He will be sentenced at Chester Crown Court on Tuesday.

Strip-search yields drugs A MAN stopped by police in Rudheath was arrested on drugs charges after an “intimate” search revealed he had heroin and crack in his underpants. Thomas Lovett, the passenger in an Alfa Romeo approached by police on April 29, was strip-searched for drugs after admitting smoking a “spliff ” in the car. “He was asked to remove his underwear and bend over,” said prosecutor Karen Morgan-Read at Vale Royal Magistrates Court on Thursday. “A white plastic bag protruded from his buttocks,” she continued. “There were a number of smaller plastic bags which contained brown and white powder.” After being asked if he had anything else stashed away Lovett, of Speke, Liverpool “again from his anus produced a small lump,” the court heard. Lovett, 25, admitted two charges of possessing class A drugs and was given a three-month 7pm-7am curfew and ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

Teenager goes on break-in spree

A TEENAGE burglar released from a young offenders’ institute six weeks ago has been told she will be locked up again after admitting SIX break-ins in one night. Samantha Morgan, 18, of Bramhall Close, Winsford, pleaded guilty to two charges of burglary at Vale Royal Magistrates Court on Thursday, and asked for four more offences to be taken into consideration when she is sentenced. Karen Morgan-Read, prosecuting, said all six offences were committed during a four-hour “spree” in the early hours of Saturday, July 26. A £6,000 Hyundai Terracan was stolen from Chesterfield Close at about 5am after the defendant broke into a house

and stole the keys. Houses were earlier targeted at The Loont and Warwick Place. Morgan was jailed for three months on March 19 for stealing £290 worth of alcohol from the One Stop Shop, Delamere Street and 12 wedding dresses worth more than £8,000 from Tiaras and Tails, also on Delamere Street. Miss Morgan-Read told the court: “This defendant has an unenviable record for a young girl and she has been given chances by the court but committed further offences.” Morgan was refused bail and will be remanded in custody until she is sentenced at Chester Crown Court on August 27. Her co-accused, a 17-year-old Winsford male, is also in custody and will appear at Vale Royal Youth Court on Wednesday.

MRS NELLIE ARROWSMITH

THE funeral has taken place of Nellie Arrowsmith, 82, of Winsford.

She was the widow of Mr Cal Arrowsmith. Mrs Arrowsmith was born in Winsford to parents Enoch and Kate Rowlinson and had lived in the town all her life. Her working life began at the age of 14 at Feathers Sewing Factory, later at Bradbury’s where she

was a supervisor, until its closure in 1981. She worked on many functions at Winsford Civic Hall, including Kops and Kids. She got great pleasure from her work, enjoyed meeting people and helped to run the St John’s Church shop at Over Square with her sisters, Flo and Joan. She enjoyed holidaying in her caravan in Wales and going abroad with her two sisters. Mrs Arrowsmith is survived by her twin sister, Flo and sister, Joan, along with many nieces and nephews. She will be sadly missed by everybody who knew her. Family, relatives and friends attended the service at St John the Evangelist Church, Over, with interment in the churchyard, conducted by the Rev Simon Hamill-Stewart.

Clutching her telegram from the Queen, Phyllis said: “I’m so happy everybody has come to wish me happy birthday, I’ve never had so many people come to visit me in all my life – it’s wonderful.” Crissy Watson, WVHT’s Independent Living Team manager, said: “She is an absolutely wonderful lady and on behalf of the trust I would like to wish her all the best on this special occasion.”

Crash drink-driver was ‘pitiful’ sight A WINSFORD man who crashed his car into a garden after drinking “seven or eight pints” of cider has been banned from driving for two years. Darren McGee, 26, mounted a kerb and crashed into a fence before ploughing into the garden at Townfields Road in his Audi A3 at 2.15am

on Friday, July 4, Vale Royal Magistrates Court heard. Karen Morgan-Read, prosecuting, said when police arrived McGee, of Swallow Court, was “sitting with his head in his hands” on the side of the road. He pleaded guilty to drink driving on Thursday and was also ordered to complete 140

hours of unpaid work. Vicky Robinson-Parker, defending, said: “He never for one second intended to go out and drink drive.” She said he had planned on driving home after one pint. “I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who is more sorry for their behaviour,” she added “To say he is devastated is an

Residents voice their concerns over proposed site for Travellers By Jane Matzen

DOZENS of people have voiced their opposition to a plot of land in Sandiway being short-listed as a permanent site for Travellers. According to locals, the land beside Blakemere Craft Centre used to be part of the adjacent woodland until it was mysteriously cleared of trees some years ago. About 70 people attended a meeting of Cuddington and Sandiway Parish Council to express their concerns which ranged from traffic congestion to the situation of a Travellers’ site next to one of Cheshire’s top tourist attractions. Vale Royal Borough councillor Val Godfrey said the borough council was dutybound to provide sites for Travellers and there were four currently on the short list, including one in Frod-

Man in tree jump threat A NORTHWICH man triggered a full-scale emergency when he climbed 20 feet up a tree on Monday evening, and threatened to throw himself off. Police, firefighters and paramedics converged on the woodland at the rear of Woodside Terrace, Leftwich, after his mum reported him missing at 8.45pm and said she was afraid he could harm himself. His description was circulated to police patrols and shortly afterwards he was spotted going into the woods. A police spokesman said: “When officers found him he was 20 feet up the tree, refusing to come down, and with a cable wrapped round his wrist. “They kept on talking to him and at 11.10pm he came down and was taken to Leighton Hospital for a mental health assessment.”

Drug farm at former church

UNCOVERED: This converted Methodist church building housed a £400,000 cannabis farm.

A FORMER village Methodist church has been uncovered as the base of a £400,000 drug ‘farm’. More than 1,000 cannabis plants were found by police during a raid at Chantry House in Winsford Road, Wettenhall. Chinese immigrant Li Dan, 37, has been jailed for his part as the ‘gardener’ in an operation which has shocked the community.

nice Cheshire farming community. This is certainly not a hotspot for crime, just the odd bit of petty theft. People in the area were very shocked that such a big operation was taking place.” PC Dave Storey, who led the police investigation, said: “This case should serve as a warning to anyone wishing to benefit from the cultivation and sale of cannabis. “It was one of the biggest operations discovered in Cheshire and would have made in excess of £500,000 had it been allowed to continue.”

THE health of plucky Kingsmead youngster Jacob Marsland continues to improve. Dad Anthony told the Chronicle this week his son is doing well and “seems to be in remission at the moment, which looked impossible eight months ago”. The six-year-old footballloving youngster is able to stay home for the latest stage of his treatment – an oral dose of chemotherapy which he needs to take for six months. His dad added: “Jacob is able to have a relatively normal life at the moment, but still needs to be fed via his nasal gastric

Jacob Marsland tube as eating remains a problem as a result of his previous treatment.” Despite all the hopeful signs, fundraising is still going on round the clock just in case the family need to seek treatment for Jacob in America.

An attempt on the life of the president reveals a much larger conspiracy in this thriller starring Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, and Forest Whitaker. Vantage Point takes the point of view of five witnesses and shows them all to reveal the truth.

NATIONALLY acclaimed laid-back rockers Sound Sanctuary take a trip to the canalside at Audlem’s Shroppie Fly on Saturday. The talented Kent four-piece are on the road promoting their new album, Dust , fresh from playing BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend event. Band spokeswoman Gelli Graham says: “Toby, Dave, Andy and Steve create laid-back, chilled out, summer music scattered with acoustic guitars, rolling funk bass-lines and lazy hip hop-inspired beats. “In lacing the band’s acoustic harmonies with hip hop and electronica the end result is a blissful soundscape variously compared to contemporary acts like Zero 7, Gomez and Air as well as legends such as Simon and Garfunkel or Crosby, Stills and Nash.” The band have become a regular feature of the London gig circuit and are through to the semi-finals of the nationwide Surface Unsigned Competition. They are planning to record a new album through the summer before another full UK tour at the end of this year. Gelli adds: “This is the first chance anyone outside of London or Kent has had the chance to see them perform and if your musical tastes include chilled out acoustic then this is not to be missed.” The show starts at 9pm and admission is free. ■ For more information phone the pub on 01270 811772.

The outfit join an impressive list of new wave acts to play the High Street stage. A band spokesman says: “The group will be performing all the classic Boomtown Rats hits with a back-to-basics approach, intended to reflect the earthy spirit and sound of the original band’s early years. “Their new version of I Don’t Like Mondays is well worth hearing.” The band performs all the classic hits, including Someone’s Looking at You, Rat Trap and Like Clockwork along with live favourites like Joey’s On The Street Again and Neon Heart. Support acts are still to be announced. ■ Advance tickets, priced £9.50, are available by phoning 01270 216785. Tickets will also be available on the door, priced £11.

The band has performed all over the country since starting out in October 2006 and boast a unique mix of male and female vocals. Others taking part include Severenth, from Chester, who represent the true aesthetic of metal, loud, dark and uncompromisingly brutal. Determined and ferocious, the Chester quintet’s music is a mature modern metal sound which switches between aggression and melody effortlessly, making Severenth’s music not only intense but also catchy. Opening the night will be Asleep in Panama, from Holmes Chapel. Doors open at 8pm, and entry is £4.50.

MASTERPIECE: Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters starts at The Royal Exchange, Manchester next month.

Russian show’s tale of sisters act

ANTON Chekhov’s poignant masterpiece Three Sisters launches the Autumn/Winter Season at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre next month. This new production of the Russian play has been translated by Michael Frayn and is directed by Sarah Frankcom. The play revolves around the lives and dreams of sisters Irina, Masha and Olga. When their brother falls in love, it is not only the dream of a better life in Moscow put at risk, but the roof above their heads.

By Jane Matzen

Beth Cooke is cast in the role of Irina, a role her aunt Niamh Cusack also played when the Exchange last staged the play in 1985. Emma Cunniffe plays Masha and Lucy Black, who was last seen at the Royal Exchange in Mary Barton, plays Olga. The cast also includes Joseph Kloska, Polly Findlay, Mark Bonnar, Christopher Colquhoun, Laurence Mitchell, Roger Morlidge,

Michael Elwyn, Tim Barlow, Ann Firbank, Chris Fared and Howard Charles. Three Sisters opens on Wednesday, September 10 and runs until Saturday, October 11. Tickets range in price from £8.50-£29. Concessions are available, and tickets on Mondays for anyone aged 25 and under are £4. The box office is on 0161 833 9833 or you can book online at www.royalexchange.co.uk/ bookonline.

OUTSPOKEN and original folkpunk rockers Chumbawamba are playing in the round at Newcastleunder-Lyme’s New Vic Theatre tonight (Wednesday). The band, most famous for their 1997 number one hit, Tubthumping, began life in the 80s as an anarchist-punk band railing against Thatcher’s Britain. Nowadays, the group’s music may have slowed down but the sentiment is the same. Their new acoustic album, The Boy Bands Have Won, mixes traditional English folk songs and original tunes, and ranges from tales of historical rebellion to contemporary satire. Theatre spokeswoman Helen White says: “The songs may have some serious messages, but a good time is guaranteed for all.” ■ For tickets, priced £14-£15.50, with under 16s free, phone the box office on 01782 717962 or visit www.newvictheatre.org.uk. The show starts at 7.30pm. LIVERPOOL’S Royal Court Theatre is hosting a swinging 60s party until August 16 courtesy of Jim Cartwright’s acclaimed musical, Eight Miles High. The show promises a packed evening of live music and sharp gags. A theatre spokesman says: “The innovative play combines DJs, bands, hippies, housewives and bikers, played by talented actors and musicians to recreate the feeling of free love, peace and happiness.” The audience is invited to sing along to classic 60s hits including California Dreaming, Whiter Shade of Pale, Here Comes The Sun, Urban Spaceman and Black Magic Woman which will be performed by the cast, who also double up as the band. For an extra £12, theatre-goers can get into the festival spirit with special ‘Grassy Knoll’ tickets which allow them to sit up close to the bands on rugs and enjoy one of the chef ’s picnic baskets. ■ For tickets, priced from £10 to £20, phone the box office on 0870 787 1866.

Jason on song for ‘heart-melting’ gig LOCK up your mothers – 1980s heart-throb Jason Donovan is promising “hits and heart-melting moments” at the Crewe and Nantwich Festival and Carnival 2008. The Aussie superstar, currently hauled up in a London studio putting the finishing touches to his next album of 50s and 60s covers, says he can’t wait to have a good yarn with the 8,000-capacity Queen’s Park crowd in Crewe on Saturday, August 23. Despite battling a bad bout of hay fever, he says: “I’m really excited about the gig. It’ll be fantastic to meet the people of Crewe and I promise it will be an amazing show. “I can tell you now there will be all the hits and plenty of heartmelting moments. These songs soundtracked a lot of people’s lives so I can’t wait to play them.” Over his 20-year career, Jason, now 40, has sold more than three million records worldwide, including UK number one singles Too Many Broken Hearts in the World and Sealed With a Kiss. He also starred in a hit show of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the West End. He hit the headlines once again in the 2006 series of ITV’s reality TV

show I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! and earlier this year appeared in innovative soap/drama combo Echo Beach and Moving Wallpaper. He says: “I’m in a really good place at the moment. I’m really lucky to be able to sing songs for a living and I love to keep myself busy, moving and motivated. “I last played a gig three weeks ago so I’ll get together with the band for a few practices and put some oil on the wheels, so to speak, before we hit the road.” Jason found fame as mechanic Scott in the popular Australian soap Neighbours. His character’s marriage to Charlene, played by pop princess Kylie Minogue, attracted one of the 80s biggest UK TV audiences. Jason and Kylie’s number one duet Especially For You was one of the decade’s biggest hits, but don’t expect a reunion at Crewe. Jason adds: “There is absolutely no chance of a special guest appearance by Kylie. That said, I might throw in a few acoustic ones and maybe even preview a couple of my new covers.” Carnival organisers are urging the community to make this year’s event one to remember. A host of attractions and activities are lined up for the carnival which draws up to 30,000 people.

Entertainments

Before Jason hits the stage on the Saturday, Staffordshire-based charity Caudwell Children is staging Monkey March and Bounce events. The charity is urging families, nurseries and play groups to join in the sponsored walk and bounce at 11am and get sponsored to raise money for other children. Entry into the competition is £1 and all proceeds go to the charity. Caudwell Children provides direct donations of equipment, treatment and therapy for children across the UK. Jason says: “Caudwell Children is a wonderful charity so when they asked me to do this gig for them, I couldn’t refuse. “Hopefully everyone will give what they can. Now I’m going to get my band ready, get rid of this hay fever and hit the road to Crewe.” ■ For tickets, priced £9.50 each or £25 for a family ticket, phone the M Club on 01270 216785 or visit www.themclub.co.uk.

The show starts at 7.30pm. POPULAR childrens’ characters Fifi and the Flower Pots bring their summer fun to Manchester’s Opera House theatre today (Wednesday).

A theatre spokesman says: “Follow Fifi and Clairy as they set off on their adventure. Let’s hope Stingo and Slugsy don’t get in the way with their latest madcap and mischievous scheme.” ■ For tickets, £11 for children and £13 for adults, visit www.manchesteroperahouse. org.uk.

Your very famous stubborn traits come to the fore this week and you need to be careful you don’t end up throwing the baby out with the bath water.

I’m sure you’re tired after the month you’ve had so far Leo. It’s not over yet though as some sort of overtime is required if you’re to tie up all that you’ve achieved to the level you desire. Foreign lands and names beckon in love and may require you to tell a white life to a family member. Call now to hear how Uranus can help you.

It has been hard for you to understand your close ones recently. In fact it has probably felt as if you are both talking different languages. You get back on track on Thursday though, if that is you’re willing to make that first compromise towards the unity I know you secretly desire. Call now to hear why Gemini’s need careful handling.

Call now to hear why travel and love link together.

This is a time of great reflection for you. You may however find yourself making unfair demands on loved ones in order to try and get them to confirm their dedication to you.

With Mercury by your side you are sure to be feeling as if you are taking two steps forward and one step back.

Call now to hear why an ex can’t stop thinking about you.

The pressure is on for you to prove yourself or do something which can confirm you’re on board for the journey which a close one is intent on making. Just make sure you are not being pushed into something which you do not agree with. It doesn’t hurt to ask a few more questions first, does it? Call me now for clarity and vision.

The stars give you the gift of foresight and so you will be able to guess what your loved ones are thinking of doing, before even they do. Mixed signals in work may lead you to make a commitment which is not necessary and it’s vital that you listen don’t speak, especially in Mondays confrontations? Call now for a full reading.

At last you can see sense and you’ll be able to see where you’ve been going wrong. Not only can you right a wrong in your career but you can also clear up the mess in your love life which an Aquarian seems to have played a hand in creating. New and successful work avenues link to Gemini’s. Call now to understand all your options.

Van gears up for sporty life eyxsri{w Ian Johnson

THERE’S a breeze of optimism blowing through the light commercial market.

There may be concern over falling sales in the car arena, but the van is a vital ingredient in the lifeblood of the nation and rolls on regardless. We have already seen the specifications and comfort levels of vans rocket in the last few years, but it now seems that image is the name of the game as increasingly more stylish vans jostle for the attention of the buyers and operators. A few years ago I never thought I would ever see a mainstream sporty van in Britain, but following the example of Mr T in the A-Team, manufacturers are piling on the power dressing in light commercials. Ford have done it with the Transit and Transit Connect Sport Van editions and another manufacturer to take to the sports lane with vans is Renault with its Trafic Sport This is one vehicle which proves you can mix business with pleasure. Stylish in looks, it is well equipped to cope with any type of cargo, whether it be urban or motorway delivery loads during the week or for family use at the weekend, the new

Available on Panel Van, six-seat Crew Van+ and 9 Seat versions of Trafic, the new Sport trim level provides 16” ‘Ixtar’ alloy wheels, all round metallic paint, Air Con Plus pack (air conditioning, electric front windows and electrically heated door mirrors), driver’s armrest, front fog lights and new Elba upholstery. Positioned slightly above the Vauxhall Vivaro Sportive and below VW Transporter Sportline, the new model is expected to account for a significant proportion of sales, particularly with small and medium-sized businesses which want to deliver

an image as well as the goods. Ford prefer to make their sport vans limited edition, but Renault took the step of making them part of the mainstream range. Renault is rightly proud of the Trafic van which is celebrating after scooping the highly-coveted Environment Award in the 2008 Fleet World Honours, thanks to its impressive range of low emission vehicles. Also Renault’s Trafic van remains the LCV to beat after winning ‘Best Medium Van’ for an outstanding sixth consecutive year.

volumes span 5.0 to 7.1 cubic metres, while there are combi, chassis-cab and double-cab models. Van payloads of 1,000kg and 1,200kg help to give a wide variety of choice for fleet users. Inside, drivers are well catered for. Storage space is plentiful and the driving position is still one of the best. Subtle changes from the 2006 facelift have left the stylish dashboard largely unchanged. It is also a good van to drive with a fine balance of ride and handling either empty, or loaded to full gross weight. The Trafic Sport van I drove did capture some admiring glances due its stylish road presence. It was one of the new generation of Trafics that can be fitted with a satnav and this is where the concept came a little unstuck. Because the small screen is situated way back in the centre of the dash. I found it difficult to see from the wheel. Under the bonnet, the Euro-IV engine range is sourced from Renault/Nissan with a 2.0-litre common-rail diesel providing a useful power increase over its 1.9-litre predecessor with 90PS and 115PS. The 2.5-litre common-rail diesel produces 150PS, giving effortless performance for maximum payload work. There’s also a 120PS two-litre petrol engine, while both diesels are available with an automated six-speed gearbox to make light of stop/start operations.

The things we leave in cars

EVER since finding something quite unexpected in a loan car I have always been wary of vehicles people have driven before me.

So too it appears are staff of car hire company Europcar because the list of items it revealed as being left in cars by customers beggars belief. As can be guessed, CDs and sunglasses figure highly, but staff at Europcar’s Liverpool branch were surprised to find a false leg in one car. Europcar customers obviously have a lot of cash to flash, considering staff at different branches have found £1,000 worth of designer clothes left behind, £600 of House of Fraser vouchers and £300 in cash. Some of the more unusual items include a set of furry handcuffs and a Scottish Piper’s black ostrich hat not to mention a cooked sausage behind the engine. Other unusual items left include a mannequin (Hull); a wheelchair (Bradford); an ammunition case and stretcher (Reading); half a pint of beer with a CD called ‘The Art of Speed Seduction’ (Reading); a pair of ladies black pants (Sheffield); Colostomy bags (Sheffield) and 10 odd pairs of shoes (Salford). Cars are often a window on our lives, but judging by some of the above items it does appear that some lives can be very unusual. Ian Johnson

Doubles all round for singles winners FOR the first time, Cuddington Tennis Club’s men’s singles final was contested by two juniors, Brad Bird and Alex King. But the women’s finalists – Lindsey Cochrane and Liz Oldfield – were old foes. King was the winner of a thrilling match and Cochrane triumphed in a repeat of last

Tennis year’s final, her tactical game overcoming Oldfield’s hallmark accurate slice shots. King completed a double in the doubles, his ground strokes and some powerful volleys from partner Jamie Cummins proving too much for Damian Cookson and Simon Nuttall.

Double success for senior crews

Personal best has silver lining WINNINGTON-BASED Carl Ruebotham is now in second place in the British All Rounder series. Now riding for the British Saltbacked Team Swift, Ruebotham, 41, rode to a personal best 283.59 miles in the Elmut 12-hour race. The former Weaver Valley rider was so exhausted he had to be lifted from his bike in order to recover. But his reward was to take the silver position overall. He was placed third in the series last year, and sixth in 2006.

Kimber had a wicket in each of his first three overs and, with Stuart Hayes and John Price each claiming a brace, ensured an early finish.

OULTON Park’s reign as kings of Cheshire is almost at an end. The three-times ECB Premiership champions were trounced by Bowdon at Little Budworth on Saturday. They now seem likely to finish mid-table and were also recently ko’d in the Cheshire Cup and Fred Graham Twenty20 Cup. Oakmere and Northwich, meanwhile, edged closer to their respective Cheshire League titles and Weaverham maintained their promotion challenge, too. MOVE ABROAD COUNTY LEAGUE ECB Premiership

DANNY Leech (69), Nathan Dumelow (61) Ben Spendlove (52) and Ben Gough (39) set a formidable target, but Richard Wilkinson (143 no) and Carl Hey (66 no) defied Oulton. Steve Yates (85) and Robin Taylor (82) revived Oulton 2nds from 58-3 to 248-7 against Middlewich 2nds, 172-8. Division Two

WEAVERHAM stepped up the promotion pressure on rivals Barrow, severely denting Prestbury’s own hopes at the same time. New Zealander Gregg Ayrns top scored with 66 and support came from Mattie Bebbington (41) and Rob McMillan with (25). Prestbury’s destroyers were James Ollier (4-40 off 13 overs) and skipper McMillan (3-2). Father and Son Phil and Mark Harris scored 49 and 41 and put on 72 for the first wicket in Weaverham 2nds, 184-8, draw against Wirral, 165-9. Dave Armstrong (24), Kenny Roberts (3-36), Neil gerrard (2-39) and Jon Turley (3-55) were the other successes.

Winnington Park 222-5 Mobberley 222-9

WNNINGTON upped the run rate and the pressure. They managed only 43 off the first 20 overs, but accelerated to 116 off the next 25 and another 62 from the last five. Sean O’Neill (85 no) led the effort with assistance from Dave Hine (36), Glin Cherian (24) and Ben Challoner (42). Park had Mobberley at 123-5 – but they also had five wickets and five overs left when needing only 13 to win. Four results were still possible off the final ball, a scrambled single drawing the match. Craig Walsh (4-72) was the pick off the bowlers.

CRAIG Phelan was the matchwinner as Oakmere scraped another victory towards promotion. Stewart Eaton (4-58), Chris Nelson (3-26) and Pete Hutchinson (3-35) dismissed Runcorn in 40 overs, but it was not an easy win. Paul Hutchinson (22) and Stewart Eaton (37) were the best of the top order, but Phelan’s unbeaten 37, including two crucial fours in the 48th over, ended Oakmere’s bout of hic-

JIM Vince has returned to Witton Albion to take Tony Barras to Halifax Town. The former Macclesfield centre back spent two years at Wincham Park. Vince, public enemy number one among Witton fans for his part in breaking up their successful side and his defection, apparently spoke to Barras before contacting Witton. In pointedly marked contrast Albion boss Nigel Deeley has served seven days notice of approach on Halifax for front runner Nattone Awang, who has

played friendlies for both clubs this summer. “Jim says he is free to join us, but I am doing things properly,“ said Deeley. With only Brian Pritchard and Rod Thornley remaining loyal Deeley will have made at least 15 signings before kick off on Saturday week. They may include Chris Gahgan, who left Witton for Bradford PA a year ago. He is considering terms. Albion’s final friendly is at home to a Manchester City Xl on Tuesday (7pm).

DINO Maamria is aiming high. When asked what his hopes were for the new season, the Northwich boss declared: “I’ll be happy with promotion.” Maamria will put the finishing touches to his squad for Saturday’s kick off against Cambridge United at home (3pm) after Thursday’s friendly against a Manchester United reserve team, also at the Marston’s Arena. He says he has made most of team selection already and that it includes centre forward Darren Stamp. The signing of Stamp was thrown into doubt when Maamria’s budget was cut, but – as financial aid comes from fans and the United crowd pulling friendly – Stamp looks certain to join officially after figuring in most of the summer friendlies. Mammria said: “His experience, ability and goals make him a vitallly important player for us and he wants to be here. “Hopefully he will be able to play against Cambridge. “I am happy with the way pre-season has gone, at least on the pitch. “I am happy with the players we have got, but not with the number. The budget changed and left me with 16. If was a simple case of our best 11 against anyone else’s then my side would match the Mansfields and Oxfords. “The bigger clubs have more money and bigger squads. But I still want promotion. The higher you aim the more you achieve.” Vics go Burton Albion on Tuesday. ■ Congratulations to Graham Towers, of Middlewich Road, Rudheath, who is the winner of our Blue Square Premier League season ticket competition. His passport to every Vics’ game is on its way to him.

United are aiming high WINSFORD United kick off their campaign at Bacup Borough on Saturday. Home fans only have to wait until Tuesday and the visit of Flixton (7.45pm) for their first chance to see a side manager Joe Gibiliru believes is destined for the top. He said: “It is a better squad than last season and I am convinced we will be competing for promotion.” United ended their friendlies at home to Sandbach Town last night after beating Connah’s Quay and Rochdale Town in their previous

two outings. ■ Nicky Maynard became Mid Cheshire’s most expensive product ever this week when Bristol City paid Crewe Alex £2.25 million for him. The striker was born in Winsford and raised there by mum, Diane. His father is former Winsford United and Witton Albion centre forward Dave Maynard. Nicky, 21, spent part of the 2006-07 season on loan at Witton, returning to Crewe to score 37 times in 59 appearances since then.
