500,000 starlings in estate siege

THERE’S no love lost between the residents of a Wrexham housing estate and the feathered fiends from Russia making their lives a misery.

The pesky starlings have been bombarding houses and washing hanging in yards in the Ridgeway area of Marchwiel and fouling them, much to the annoyance of residents. People say up to half-a-million birds can be seen circling every day between 5pm and 6pm. Villagers say they can’t leave their washing out and are forced to clean bird mess off their roofs, cars and windows almost daily.

Russian invaders anger residents

But the RSPB says they may have to put up with the roosting flock for several months more and even into summer, when the birds are due to fly back to Russia. Derek Cleverley, 53, has cleaned the windows of his home six times in the last month. He said: “There are about half-a- million of them, it’s an amazing sight. “It was quite nice when they arrived around a month ago but now it’s become a real nuisance and they are causing a lot of damage. “They’re also really noisy. People are having to cover up their cars, we’re constantly cleaning windows and the roofs around here are covered in mess.” Derek, a dad-of-one who lives in Ridgeway with his wife Elma, added: “They are absolutely beautiful, swirling around in shapes. Everyone in the street just stands here and watches them. “But we’ve had enough now and just

want them to move on.” John Powell, who lives in Sesswick, said: “I have seen them when I’m driving home from work and it’s an incredible sight. “I’ve managed to avoid the bird muck, but my friends are often moaning that the starlings have left a mess on their cars.” The size of a starlings flock varies during the year, being smallest during the breeding season and largest in the winter, when numbers are augmented by migrants from the north. During the winter starlings live in flocks throughout the day, travelling between feeding sites. They have spare time for preening and loafing, usually close to the feeding areas at noisy gatherings called daytime roosts. Day roosts are normally at exposed places such as the tops of trees for good all-round visibility. Des James, who covers the Wrexham area as RSPB people engagement officer, said: “They usually roost together in a large tree or reed beds, so maybe they are staying nearby in a forest. Obviously the mess is unwelcome but they truly are amazing birds. “Sadly for residents they could have another few months of them yet as they have come over here for the winter from Russia and will return in the summer.” Derek added: “Another few months? I thought they’d only be here a few weeks and move on.”

INSIDE STORY Mission to increase area’s appeal to tourists: Page 4

School merger scheme receives green light PLANS to merge Acton Park infants and junior schools have been given the goahead by the National Assembly Government. Jane Hunt AM, Minister for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills, has approved plans from Wrexham Borough Council to amalgamate the two schools. The new community primary school

will cater for 420 pupils, making it one of the biggest primary schools in the county borough. It will also have provision for a nursery and a dedicated team to help children with speech and language difficulties. The amalgamation, which will be in place for September 1, will allow the authority to deliver more cost-effective primary education. The school will have

one headteacher instead of two, meaning the money saved will be pumped into the new primary school. Although the school buildings are separate they are only a few metres apart and there are no immediate plans to modify the buildings. Both the council and the minister took on board concerns of staff and parents about the school’s size.

Aled Roberts, lead member for schools and corporate parenting, said: “A number of Wrexham infant and junior schools have been successfully amalgamated in recent years. “The feedback from these schools has been positive, and I have no reason to believe the benefits accruing to those schools would have any less relevance at Acton Park.”

Bakery honoured for its hygiene standards AN AWARD-WINNING bakery is celebrating another golden moment.

Llamas set up home in park TY MAWR Country Park in Wrexham has welcomed two llamas. Carlos and Pedro are half-brothers and came from a farm in Cheshire. They were named by competition winners Aimee Lewis, Jeanine Williams and Lindsey Himsworth, who won a year’s sponsorship of Pedro and Carlos as a prize. The llamas will be introduced to sheep at the park in the coming months in the hope they will protect them from foxes. Along with all the park’s animals, they are available for sponsorship, with the money going toward their keep. If you are interested, call 01978 822 780.

Minister praises Glyndwr University DEPUTY First Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones has praised the research work of Wales’s newest university, believing it will help pull the country through the recession. Lesley Griffiths AM said research and development work by Wrexham’s newly inaugurated Glyndwr University, would make it an economic ‘engine for Wales’s recovery’. Mr Wyn Jones agreed during a question-and-answer session at the Assembly. Wrexham AM Ms Griffiths asked Mr Wyn Jones: “It is widely accepted across

The Village Bakery’s shop and cafe in Rhos has just earned a gold award for its food hygiene standards. The accolade was conferred on the company by Wrexham Borough Council’s environmental health department – the latest in a long line of awards for the Village Bakery. Last year the company was named as the Bakery Business of the Year for the third time. The gluten-free bread being made at the state-of-the art bakery was voted the number one new product in 2008 by the Finnish Coeliac Association. The honour came weeks after the bakery on Wrexham Industrial Estate was officially opened by First Minister Rhodri Morgan. Then, judges at True Taste of Wales Awards named the company’s Welsh cakes as reserve champion. The bakery’s retail man-

ager, Sharon Cooper, was thrilled the efforts of the eight members of staff at shop and cafe in Market Street, Rhos, had been recognised. She said: “We had to attain some extremely high standards to be worthy of the gold award. “Another crucial element was the rigorous training we received from the company’s technical manager. “The people who work here have worked really hard and that has got us our gold award. I am extremely pleased and proud the efforts of the staff have been recognised.” Shop manager Eryl Hughes said: “The standards set by the council to become eligible for a gold award are very rigorous – and rightly so. “All the staff have played their part and receiving the award was a proud moment for all of us. “We have a very good staff and we all work together as a team – they are all committed to doing their best.”

Europe that the upturn, when it arrives, will be driven globally by cutting-edge research and development, which is exactly the kind of vision Professor Mike Scott and his team at Glyndwr want to see come to fruition. Do you agree that, in economic terms, it is places like Glyndwr University that will be the engine for Wales’s recovery?” Mr Wyn Jones said: “I very much agree that the driver for making the economy more sustainable in Wales, going forward, is our links with university sector.”

Smokers give hospital security staff hard time HOSPITAL security guards are being verbally abused by smokers for telling them to leave the premises. Security guards face at least 10 such incidents a day – or 3,000 a year – across North Wales. They face a barrage of bad language and intimidating behaviour from patients, some in dressing gowns, relatives and other visitors who gather outside hospital buildings to smoke. Hospital rules say lighting up is banned anywhere on the premises, including the car park. But security staff say smokers are still posing a problem across the North Wales NHS Trust, including Wrexham Maelor Hospital and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Bodelwyddan, a dozen community hospitals, clinics and dental clinics. Hospital officials fear smoke drifting into a ground-floor resuscitation room in the

A&E department at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, in particular, will be harmful to patients and staff. Even expectant and new mums gather to smoke outside the maternity unit at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Officials believe smokers huddling outside in nighties, pyjamas and dressing gowns can be unsightly – one man is known to have been semi-naked and wearing a colostomy bag. Security manager Steve Jones has four guards at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd with one on duty at a time. He said: “Patients, relatives and visitors can become verbally aggressive to staff when politely asked to move away from buildings to smoke elsewhere. “We are sworn at, leaving security guards upset and angry.” He said nine out of 10 smokers say sorry and agree to smoke off hospital grounds.

‘Catastrophe’ warning TRADE union Unite has voiced fears Wales is facing industrial devastation following the closure of several factories. The union’s Welsh regional secretary, Andy Richards, said: “If ever the UK Government needed a wake-up call to highlight the critical need for a proactive strategy to support UK industry and manufacturing jobs then they need look no further than Wales. “Unite will do all in its power to assist the thousands of its members who are currently losing their jobs. “We have to repeat our warning to the Government that without immediate action the current crisis will swiftly turn into a catastrophe.”

NHS workforce rise

NOT HERE: The no smoking sign at the entrance to the Maelor Hospital

THE number of NHS frontline staff in Wales is continuing to increase, according to a staff census. The figures show there was the equivalent of 71,467 full-time staff members directly employed by the NHS in 2008, an increase of nearly 1% on the year before and nearly 18,000 more than 12 years ago. Lesley Griffiths, Labour AM for Wrexham, is pleased to see the latest rise. She said: “The Assembly Government is committed to improving our NHS for both staff and patients. “There are now more doctors and nurses working in the NHS than ever before.”

BUMS ON SEATS: Tracy King, Becca Griffiths and Gerry Humphreys during their charity feat. THREE workmates may be in need of a rest after a fundraising marathon – but noone had better suggest they have a sit down. For the trio, who work for the Pendine Park care organisation, are still tender after sitting in every seat at Wrexham FC’s Racecourse ground. The three – activities coordinator Gerry Humphreys, senior care

practitioner Tracy King and care practitioner Becky Griffiths – undertook the challenge to raise money for the local branch of the Alzheimer’s Society. They chose the charity as they find themselves dealing with a growing number of dementia cases. They completed the marathon in six hours even with a short tea break and lunch. Gerry said: “We’re very proud. It was hard work,

but once we knew we were on the final stand the adrenalin kicked in and we finished strongly.” The trio have already raised about £300 but more pledges have been received. Gerry is already considering what her next fundraising effort will be. She might repeat last year’s effort, when she and colleagues spent a day in bed in the window of a Gwersyllt furniture store.

Drug addict given last chance to change life A YOUNG woman whose life is said to have been blighted by an addiction to hard drugs has been given a chance to prove she can change. Michelle Louise Lewis, 21, of St Margaret’s Way, Wrexham, admitted shoplifting, which put her in breach of a suspended prison sentence. Judge Dafydd Hughes, sitting at Mold Crown Court, sent her for a period of assessment at a Liv-

erpool bail hostel. If she was successful then there was a possibility of avoiding an immediate prison sentence, he explained. Lewis had a long list of previous convictions and it was clear they had been brought about by her addiction, he said. She could have no complaint if she was sentenced to immediate imprisonment, he said, but he accepted she was at a crossroads in her life.

The judge said: “Either you carry on as you are or you change direction. If you are going to change, you need help.” He bailed her to return to court in three weeks. Lewis admitted shoplifting from the Spar shop in Wrexham and asked for an offence of stealing her uncle’s fishing tackle, worth £1,500, to be taken into consideration.

Couple ‘very lucky’ to escape fire at home FIRE chiefs are urging residents to beware the dangers of chimney fires after a couple had a lucky escape from a blaze at their home in Worthenbury.

Firefighters were called by the homeowners to their property in Church Lane at 6.07am on Sunday. Crews from Wrexham used four sets of breathing apparatus, two hose reels and the specialist aerial ladder platform to extinguish the fire, which had spread from the chimney to the roof space of the property. The occupants, a couple in their 50s and 60s, had allowed a small chimney fire to burn out the evening previously, and had gone to bed. They were woken at about 6am by the sound of burning in the loft and smoke outside their bedroom window. The blaze caused 50% fire damage to the roof space. Andy Robb, fire safety enforcement officer for Wrexham, said: “This couple were extremely lucky to have escaped without any injuries, and the swift

DEVASTATING: Fire tore through the roof of the property in Church Lane, Worthenbury. actions of the crews prevented the fire from spreading and causing structural damage to the rest of the house. “This fire highlights just how important it is to look after your chimneys and ensure they are safe.

“In this instance, a brick had fallen from the chimney breast a few months earlier, and the hole left by the brick caused the fire to spread to some timber beams in the roof.” He advised residents with solid fuel,

gas or oil fires to check their chimneys every year, and four times a year for wood-burning fires. ■ For a free home fire safety check, call 0800 1691234 or visit www. nwales-fireservice.org.uk.

POLICE are investigating two arson attacks on cars in Wrexham which they believe are linked. At 1.08am on Monday, North Wales Police was alerted to a Renault Mégane on fire at the rear of a property in Coed Eva, New Broughton.

A WOMAN who was almost four times over the drinkdrive limit has been given a suspended prison sentence. At Prestatyn Magistrates Court, Catherine Webb, 53, of Maes-y-Ffynnon Road, Minera, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol on the A5 in Corwen on December 21. Prosecutor Tracy Willingham said a police officer noticed Webb’s car swerving and when stopped she had to be helped out of the car. She failed to give a roadside breath sample and after being arrested was found to have 302

Renault Mégane in Coed Eva and caused significant damage to the one in Southsea. Police are linking the incidents and treating both fires as arson. Investigations are under way and anyone with information regarding the incidents is urged to contact officers. ■ Police say anybody who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the New Broughton or Southsea areas of Wrexham should call officers at Coedpoeth on 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line), 0845 6071002 (English line) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 in confidence.

She had been staying with her sister in Betws-y-Coed for a rest and had drunk a considerable amount of wine the night before. Magistrates imposed a nineweek custodial sentence suspended for 12 months. Webb was also banned from driving for 32 months and ordered to attend a drink-impaired driver’s course.

A TEENAGER has been cleared of raping a girl aged 14. The youth had denied the rape charge and a trial was due to be held at Mold Crown Court. But he admitted an alternative charge of sexual activity with the girl, involving intercourse and that was accepted by the prosecution. The youth, from the Wrexham area, was rebailed pending sentence in three weeks time. Nicholas Williams, defending, said the youth had always accepted intercourse took place but claimed it had been with consent.

ELEANOR Burnham, AM for North Wales, has voiced her support for a petition that aims to persuade radio stations in Wales to commit 10% of their airplay time to local bands. The AM, who is Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Minister for Culture, said: “The petition aims to get one in 10 songs played on the radio to be a track by a local performer who has never had a top 20 album before. “The belief is this will benefit local music by getting bands more fans and greater followings, and by creating distinctive and diverse regional music scenes. This will lead to a better participation at local gigs, helping local pubs and other venues.” Visit www.ipetitions.com/helpinglivemusic/ index.html.

Wrexham Chronicle, Unit 2, Daniel Owen Precinct, Mold CH7 1AP / chroniclenews@cheshirenews.co.uk

HUGHEStheVIEWS Focus on responsibilities of drivers THE Government’s top medical adviser has called for a minimum price for alcohol products. Chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson wants to see a minimum price for drinks based on the units of alcohol they contain. The plans have received a lukewarm reception from ministers who don’t want to see costs rise at the height of a recession. But the idea has the backing of charities such as Alcohol Concern, while the drinks industry, perhaps unsurprisingly, is opposed to the plan. What is abundantly clear is we have to do something to reduce the NHS bill for alcohol abuse, which is estimated to

run as high as £2.7bn a year. There is no argument alcohol abuse is doing serious harm to the health of, not just young people but all age groups across the UK. But will slapping a few pence on a bottle of super-strength beer or cider have the desired effect? You have to doubt it. Instead, we need to radically alter our attitude to drinking. In very few other European countries do you find drunken, rowdy people swarming the streets in almost plaguelike numbers every weekend. And would our continental neighbours accept their hospital emergency departments looking like vomit-strewn war zones through the actions of a few drunken louts? Instead of punishing everyone, why don’t we ensure those requiring hospital treatment, or those arrested because of their anti-social behaviour through drink, fully reimburse the public purse – whatever the cost.

I AGREE entirely with the views expressed on speeding and inconsiderate driving in this week’s Hughes the Views (Wrexham Chronicle, March 12) but, on the matter of speed cameras, the point needs to be made that the resentment to these and other controls is much more because of the fines for petty infringements of a speed limit. Nobody really objects to somebody being fined for doing 40mph in a 30mph limit zone but too many people have tales of being fined for doing 32mph in the same zone. If a driver is concentrating on the road and other road users, it is not possible for him to keep a precise eye on the speedometer at the same time. I also think the media could do more toward making people aware of their responsibilities when driving cars (and other vehicles). It is very sad the front page of this week’s Chronicle reports the deaths of six people in two car crashes. In one, a car driven by a 73-year-old driver was in collision with a car driven by a 71-year-old driver. I doubt either car was being driven speedily, dangerously or inconsiderately so what did happen? A moment’s misjudgment? A sudden heart attack? All we know is five people died in an accident which did not involve a young hooligan. Let us hope that, following the inquest, you publish at least some outline of what was clearly a tragic but very serious incident. And in the other, a car, for no apparent reason, went off the road.

I hope Ted can understand this, as I have tried hard to keep it simple for him. K F MILLER Gresford

CANDID CAMERA: Is it fair that motorist driving marginally over the speed limit are prosecuted? Was the driver startled by a piece of inconsiderate overtaking and so lost control ? Or was no other vehicle even indirectly involved, with all that implies? I feel you owe it to the family to at least give some idea of the cause. In fact, a Vauxhall Corsa was involved in both accidents. Is that coincidence, or does this model have a design fault ? A R FONTE Burton, Rossett Via email

Simple guide to my politics

YOUR correspondent Ted McKay asks me to keep any response to his letter (Wrexham Chronicle, March 12) simple for him. So I am typing this slowly in the hope he may be able to understand what I say. He must be going back a while, a trait with Labour supporters, because I haven’t written anything for weeks.

Also, I think he is getting me confused with someone else as I cannot recall ever saying Prime Minister Brown is ‘solely’ responsible for the present recession. Brown has turned out to be one of our poorest Chancellors and of course he has to take a lot of the blame for this recession. It is also a fact he is an unelected Prime Minister, that cannot be denied. As for Sir Alec (not Alex) Douglas Home, he had various Government departments, including the Scottish Office, Commonwealth Office, he also was Foreign Secretary in 1960 so didn’t ‘come from nowhere’ as Ted said. Unlike Brown, he was elected leader and therefore, Prime Minister in 1963, by when he had considerably more experience in Government than simply being Chancellor of the Exchequer for 10 years. I may be a pensioner but, like the Conservative Party, I prefer to look to the future, rather than dwell on the past as Labour and the Lib Dems tend to do.

Experiments on apes must stop

NEW rules governing animal experiments for the whole of Europe are currently being developed by the European Union and Animal Aid’s supporters are calling for a timetabled phaseout of the use of all primates. About 10,000 primates are used in laboratories across Europe each year, with a third undergoing ‘procedures’ in Britain. Toxicity testing – one of the most common uses of monkeys – involves deliberately poisoning the animals by overdose. They are dosed with drugs or chemicals by injection, inhalation or gavage (force-feeding). Reactions may include retching and vomiting, diarrhoea, tremors, liver failure and death. Last year more than half of all MEPs signed a written declaration calling for an immediate end to experiments involving great apes, as well as a timetable for the replacement of all nonhuman primates in scientific experiments. Anyone wishing to see modern, effective, state-of-the science and an end to the terrible suffering inflicted on primates should contact Animal Aid to sign and send a campaign postcard to their MEP. Call 01732 364546 or email info@animalaid. org.uk for more information. KATE FOWLER Head of campaigns, Animal Aid

Healthy approach to change LAST year I used this column to set out some of my concerns about the health of Wrexham. That column was in part inspired by a study by the Sports Science department at Glyndwr University, which examined young people’s health. I was closely involved in bringing together various groups to look into the results of the study, which made for sobering reading. Among the issues which I focused on were some of the actions we could take to improve diet and health locally. As that column acknowledged, this is a vast area and some of the issues I identified will take a long time to tackle and will require cultural shifts, changes in the way we think about our town and changes to poor infrastructure which encourage public transport use, walking and cycling. But I have been encouraged by the news that Wrexham council is looking at making its school meals even healthier and is working on encouraging young-

sters to walk to school rather than be driven in. It still amazes me how many pupils have lifts to school. These car journeys have a real impact – on the environment, on the congestion and, of course, on the health of our youngsters. This is not just a problem in Wrexham, of course – you may have seen advertising for the Change4Life campaign, the work of Health Challenge Wales, or similar work from charities and non-Governmental organisations on the issue. It is a problem which needs to be, and is being, tackled on a national level. However, that doesn’t mean we should not formulate a local response – Wrexham

has its particular problems which need local solutions. So Wrexham council’s plans are good news and a good start. It is especially encouraging that the council is beginning its work by focusing on tackling the health of our young people. However, we should not stop there. Just as every fitness campaign begins with a first step, I believe the work in Wrexham should build on the council’s actions. During the discussions on Glyndwr’s sports science research last year, it was clear there are a wide range of organisations locally who have ideas, skills and experience to tackle our obesity problem. Councillors’ decisions certainly have an impact, and I would like to see further work in developing alternatives to car use, for example. But each and every one of us can do something, even if that is as simple an action as a parent making time to play football with their child in the park or cook a healthier meal. In the end, it is our health which is at stake.

Drug addict Curtain up on cinema stole cash from elderly neighbour A TEENAGE drug addict conned her way into a widow’s home and stole her cash. The victim, an 83-yearold who had just returned home after surgery, had her confidence shattered by the burglary at her Wrexham home, Mold Crown Court was told. She had been severely affected by the incident, in which Cheri Torrence, 19, who wanted money for heroin, first tried to trick her way into her home by falsely claiming someone had died and she needed to use the phone. Ivy Littler, who lived alone since the death of her husband in 2000, refused to let her in. Torrence then came up with another story that she needed to use the toilet. When that did not work, she simply pushed her way past the woman, who shouted at her to get out. She did go – but not before stealing a purse containing

£15 and bank cards. Torrence, 19, of Maelor Avenue, Penycae, admitted the burglary at her neighbour’s home on January 18 and was sentenced to 35 weeks of youth custody. Judge Dafydd Hughes said she had been guilty of “a particularly mean and nasty offence”. He said: “You targeted this elderly lady, you deceived her, you pushed your way into the house and once in you stole her money.” The judge said the amount of money was small, but that was “neither here nor there”. He said: “You invaded her home and it is clear it has had a serious impact on that lady. “One can understand why it will be very difficult for her to trust people who call at her house in the future. That is all down to you.” David Blythin, defending, said Torrence was full of remorse for what she had done.

MP urges eyes test to beat glaucoma

HEALTH EVENT: MP Ian Lucas with Edward GarwayHeath of Moorfields and Steve Winyard. WREXHAM MP Ian Lucas is urging people to have an eye test to check for glaucoma. He spoke out after attending a Parliamentary reception in aid of World Glaucoma Day, where he joined staff from the RNIB and researchers from Moorfield’s Eye Hospital, London. Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of preventable blindness. At the reception, a new test was unveiled which aims to improve global glaucoma detection.

The test involves software in development which will run on a standard PC or laptop. Eventually it is hoped it will be made available online, enabling clinicians from across the world, including in developing countries, to use it. Mr Lucas said: “Glaucoma does not have any symptoms in its early stages and people can lose up to 40% of their sight before problems become apparent.” Many people are entitled to receive free eye tests. People who are over 40 and have a close relative

with glaucoma, have diabetes, are aged 60 or over, or who themselves or their partner receive benefits, family or pension credit. Steve Winyard, RNIB’s head of campaigns and chairman of the Glaucoma Alliance UK, said: “If caught early enough glaucoma can in nearly all cases be successfully treated and no sight need be lost. “A regular simple eye test can pick up glaucoma in its early stages before you know that anything is wrong.”

Town school place rules questioned PLANS to reorganise a valley’s schools should not rely on a rigid formula but consider the needs of a community, said Plaid Cymru. Cllr Arfon Jones has questioned whether the formula for calculating places in Welsh primary schools is correct. He challenged Wrexham council officers over the future school provision in the Ceiriog Valley. The valley is served by three schools, in Llanarmon, Glyn Ceiriog and Pontfadog. One of the officers’ recommendations was to close Ysgol Pontfadog and move its 23 pupils to Ysgol Cynddelw in Glyn Ceiriog,

which has 30 surplus places. He said: “Having visited Ysgol Cynddelw, I don’t think there are 30 surplus places there and that’s because there are Welsh- and English-medium streams. “Both streams need a foundation phase in the school, which takes up more room than the traditional classroom-based teaching, as well as more staff.” AM Janet Ryder said: “The initial consultation of parents and the wider community found huge support to retain the schools. “I’m glad Wrexham council has gone some way to reflecting that in preserving Ysgol Llanarmon.”

CONSERVATORIES, WINDOWS & DOORS

Cost of sending text messages in Europe to fall WELSH Euro MPs Glenys Kinnock and Eluned Morgan have welcomed news the price of sending a text message from anywhere in Europe is to fall dramatically, thanks to proposed legislation from the European Parliament.

The new laws will set the maximum cost of sending a text from anywhere within the European Union at 9p, and are likely to come into force soon. Mobile phone users are currently charged roughly 10 times

more than the domestic rate for texting from another European country. Mrs Kinnock said: “I am very pleased the ridiculously high cost of sending a text message will be done away with soon.”

Eulanwy joins Lord Emlyn Hooson, Sir Ronald Waterhouse and past chairman Dudley Richards as life vice president. She said: “I was absolutely astounded to be told I was to receive this award.

munity and great support to this worldwide event by the local people of Llangollen.” It was in 1959 Eulanwy was enticed to the eisteddfod by her college friend and now husband Gethin to help with stewarding duties. Her first role as a volunteer was on the hospitality committee. At that time no music committee had been established. When Arwel Hughes became music director in 1977, a strong administrative base for the music department was needed. Eulanwy, with the assistance of a secretary, was drafted in to set up the department. She was officially appointed music administrator 10 years later and in 2002 she served as music director for two years. Her award was presented by Mervyn Cousins, eisteddfod executive director.

HONOUR: Eulanwy Davies is rewarded for her contribution to the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

THE North Wales Jazz Society’s programme of weekly concerts at the Royal British Legion, Llay, continues on Tuesday with a performance by the Vic Blackwell Quartet. Vic’s first instrument was the classical piano, which he began to play at the age of six, changing to the vibes at 16 after seeing a performance by the legendary Lionel Hampton. Before heading north, he was a regular on the London jazz scene and a highlight was a gig at Ronnie Scott’s famous club in Soho.

The Vic Blackwell Quartet features top Wales jazz guitarist Trefor Owen with, also on guitar, Andy Hulme, whose accomplished performance alongside Trefor and American jazz greats at the 2008 North Wales International Jazz Guitar festival set him among the finest of today’s UK players, and double bass player Dave Turner. The concert starts at 8.30pm and admission is £6, Concessions £5. Further details are available on 01745 812260 and at www.northwalesjazz.org.uk.

FUN TIMES: Cheryl Salisbury with Kayden Williams, Terry Matthews, Kelvin Morris, Tecwyn Hughes, Andrew Osborne and Russell Evans. LIFE is set to be much more fun for toddlers living on a Wrexham estate, thanks to the generosity of a local businessman and the efforts of a group of offenders.

The 12-strong team of offenders learned new skills when they were called upon to build an indoor playground on the Caia Park estate. They all provided their labour free of charge as they had been sentenced to carry out unpaid work that benefits the community. For the past three years, the former social club at Queensway has been used as a furniture recycling store under the name New 4U, run by and for the local community. Alongside the café on the premises was a small cordoned-off play area where mums could leave their children while

By Chronicle reporter they enjoyed a cuppa. But now the toddlers can play to their hearts’ content as a “soft” playground has been created. The specialist equipment was donated by a local businessman, who wishes to remain anonymous, and who offered it to Mike Clapham, the probation service’s community services supervisor for Wrexham. He organised a team of offenders to construct the equipment, which includes a ball pool, slide, ladder and bridge, under the guidance of the donor himself. “We are extremely grateful to the donor and can guarantee him the equipment will be well used,” said Mike. “He was born and bred on the Caia Park estate and has helped us with past projects.” Rita Walker, director of the New

4U centre, said they were delighted with the playground. She said: “When we heard we were getting some play equipment we didn’t expect so much.” One of the offenders involved was Russell Evans, 20, who was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work. He said: “I had never done anything like this before because most of the other schemes I’ve been on have been gardening and things like that. “This was interesting and it’ll be brilliant for the kids.” Clifton Robinson, chairman of North Wales Probation Area, said: “This is a perfect example of what Community Payback is all about – making a real difference to local communities. “We recognise prison is necessary for certain offenders but at the same time, Community Payback is much more efficient when dealing with other offenders.”

Appeal for volunteers to help on charity stall DYNAMIC, the local charity for children and young people with disabilities, will be holding its charity stall in the Butchers Market, Wrexham, throughout next month.

THE future of one of the world’s oldest football clubs is hanging in the balance. Long-awaited proposals for a new Tesco superstore in Plas Kynnaston have been approved by Wrexham planners. Under the plans, Newi Cefyn Druids FC would move to a new 5,000-capacity stadium a mile away, near to a disused quarry on the Rhosymedre-Plas Madoc Road. Plans for the stadium and Tesco store have been approved by Wrexham County Borough Council, but the final decision will be made by the National Assembly Government. Club officials anticipating the development were flummoxed last week when councillors delayed the scheme pending a site visit on Friday – even

ager, said: “We have already starting accepting donations for the shop but still need a lot more saleable items in order to make it a success. “If you have any items you wish to donate, bring them to Bradbury House. “We try to hold the shop twice a year and it has become a highly anticipated point in our fundraising calendar.

though it was recommended for approval. It came after Cefyn Cllr Howard Moysen raised issues with the Tesco store, claiming it goes against planning policy and people should shop in Wrexham. But Cefn Druids chairman Brian Mackie said the delay could force the club out of the Welsh Premier League. He said: “Evidence shows the scheme will generate more economic activity for local shops, not less, and Tesco has disproved the road capacity issue. “There will also be more local jobs. We are extremely concerned a further delay, or refusal, could lead to us being forced out of the Welsh Premier League and lead to the closure of our football academy. Our future hangs in the balance.” The delivery of the new football stadium is facilitated by the development of Druids’ existing ground for a new supermarket. The proposed development will provide Druids with a UEFA compliant stadium including a 500-seater stand.

“We rely on individuals to help us with our fundraising, either through donations of items or volunteering their time. All the money raised directly benefits children and young people with disabilities from the Wrexham area.” The shop, which will be opposite Tricia’s cafe at the Henblas Street entrance to the market, is run entirely

by volunteers. Dynamic is looking for helpers to man the stall. If you can volunteer some time, call Amy on 01978 263656. Dynamic is a registered charity and provides out-of-school activities for Wrexham children and young people between the ages of eight and 25, with all manner of disabilities.

Firms get a kick out of charity football event

GAME FOR IT: GH&P solicitors Alun Williams, Robert Williams, Justin Whelan and Paul Coombs. BUSINESSES raised £430 for Comic Relief in a charity football tournament. The contest, organised by Wrexham law firm Gwilym Hughes & Partners (GH&P), was held at Mold Sports Centre and each team paid £50 to enter. Organiser Paul Coombs, trainee solicitor with GH&P, said: “Despite the

last-minute cancellation of two of the 10 teams, everyone had a great time. “We raised a respectable sum for a good cause. “GH&P teams went out in the quarter-finals, with the Innes Reid team winning a penalty shoot-out against the youth offending team.”

Play area reopens after makeover A CHILDREN’S play area in Coedpoeth has reopened after receiving a £45,000 facelift. The facility based in Castle Road, Coedpoeth, now has new equipment including flat and cradle swings, a spinning dish, a multiunit with slide and a climbing rock. All the equipment has been tested to provide a safe environment for children to play. Lucky pupils of Ysgol Bryn Tabor got the chance to try out the play

area before anyone else. The facility is suitable for children up to the age of 14. It has been funded by Wrexham County Borough Council’s environment department in association with WREN and SEC funding. Carla Hughes, landscape designer for the council, said: “The children’s play area is a very popular and well-used recreational facility. “The environment department have produced an exciting and fun play area for all local children to enjoy.”

Carrier bag charges to fund facility A PLAY area in Hightown, Wrexham, is to benefit from Marks & Spencer’s carrier bag charges. The Bryn Y Cabanau play area is one of the Greener Living Spaces which the store will invest the profit from carrier bag charges in. Together with charity Groundwork, Marks & Spencer will transform the underused site into an attractive play area for children, offering a much wider range of play opportunities. Mary Hext, environmental pro-

jects officer for Groundwork Wrexham & Flintshire, said: “We are very excited to be delivering this community project in Wrexham which will give opportunities for local families to enjoy a transformed natural play area. “In addition to Marks & Spencer, this project is also funded by Wrexham County Borough Council and Offa Community Council. “Full public consultations will be carried out to allow everyone to have an input into the design and construction of the site.”

Fire service warning on dangers of smoking NORTH Wales Fire and Rescue Service has revealed 28 people have lost their lives in accidental house fires since 2001. Of these, 24 were started by careless disposal or careless use of smoking materials. Richard Fairhead, community safety manager, said: “Statistics show that smokers are 35% more likely to have a house fire than non-smokers. This is sig-

nificantly increased when alcohol is involved. “There are an average of 132 deaths, 1,600 injuries and 4,300 fires per year in accidental home fires caused by smoking materials. The average damage caused by a house fire costs £25,500, compared to the cost of around £5 for a packet of cigarettes.” He warns against smoking in bed and leaving lit cigarettes

and pipes unattended. Smokers should also use child resistant lighters or matches, a heavy ashtray and install a working smoke alarm. North Wales Fire and Rescue Service offers free home fire safety checks. To book one today call 0800 1691234, visit the website www.nwales-fireservice.org.uk or email cfs@nwales-fireservice.org.uk.

Funny money

Employees see red for charity

STAFF and students of Yale College cooked up some creative fundraising ideas for Comic Relief.

YOU’VE BEAN HAD: Olly Evans takes a baked bean shower.

In the heat of Yale College’s Rendezvous restaurant kitchen, the student-staff teams tested their culinary skills in just 40 minutes to prepare a dish from instructions delivered by podcast to impress judges and win the competition The day featured fantastic costumes, sponsored baked bean bathing, leg and chin waxing for the boys onion eating and staff dancing. At the Bersham Road campus, Jon Roberts, BTEC engineering lecturer, gained sponsorship by taking a ‘nap’ on a bed of nails, made by students in the joinery department to demonstrate the theory of ‘pressure, force and area’ as a huge audience of students and staff sponsored his brave display. The amount raised is still being totted up, but the cook-off aimed to raise at least £1,000 by making the recipe available by email for a minimum donation of £1 and offering a chance to win a meal for four at the college’s Rendezvous restaurant.

HAVING FUN: Staff at JTL’s national administration centre. EMPLOYEES at JTL’s national administration centre in Wrexham were funny for money and raised more than £170 for Red Nose Day. Staff paid money to wear red

Help people beat recession plea WALES’S leading specialist housing association is urging property developers in Wrexham to invest in social housing to help beat the recession, and provide homes for people in need. Ansley Workman, chief executive of First Choice Housing Association, which provides accommodation for people with learning disabilities, is encouraging developers to diversify their portfolios during the economic downturn. The property market has been severely affected by the global financial crisis with house prices in England and Wales falling by 13.5% last year, and the number of completed house sales down 60% compared to 2007, according to the Land Registry. Despite this, First Choice, which provides accommodation for nearly 400 people with a widerange of learning disabilities, has bucked the downward trend and is growing its housing portfolio. The Association, which works in partnership with 17 local authorities in Wales, including Wrexham County Borough Council, is undertaking a £9m investment plan during the next two years and anticipates investment increasing substantially during the next three years. For further information, call 029 2070 3758 or visit www.firstchoicehousing.co.uk.

Caravan holidays in the UK have overtaken Spain as a destination this year as more people look to the rising costs of a foreign holiday. While the number of visits abroad is falling sharply, more and more Britons are looking for options to holiday at home this summer, say reports.

The trend is confirmed by The Caravan Club, which says advance bookings for 2009 are up 40% on last year. The increased demand could translate in more than 2m extra caravan holidays being taken in Britain this year, adds the National Caravan Council (NCC), with a final tally approaching nearly 13.9m. And with foreign trips declining by 6% in the last quarter of 2008, the figure is expected to exceed the 13.8m figure of British visits to Spain in 2007 - the last year of full travel statistics. NCC director-general John Lally says: “Bookings in UK holiday and touring parks are up by anything from 8% to 50%, as people choose ‘staycationing’, and opt for self-catering and value over euro Costa-lot holidays.” Lally added: “There is widespread evidence that existing caravan owners are using their caravans more,” with caravans appealing to holidaymakers as they allow people to control costs, and are increasingly seen as green options.

According to the NCC, an estimated 500,000 caravans are in regular use, out of a total of 1.5m caravanners, motor caravanners and trailer tenters in the UK. The rising popularity of caravanning could even create more than 1,000 new jobs in UK caravan parks, mainly in coastal areas, as additional staff are taken on to cope with demand.

According to The Caravan Club, its members generated a contribution of £183 million last year into rural tourism economies with shopping, eating out, buying local produce and visiting local attractions. Nick Lomas, director of marketing for the Caravan Club said: “We confidently predict that 2009 will be the year of the great British, value for money holiday.”

“Caravans, motorhomes and caravan holiday homes have changed beyond recognition in the last decade many parks can compete with the best, boasting extensive leisure facilities, high levels of service and are very family-orientated.” The Camping and Caravanning Club this week announced that it is to install wireless broadband (Wi-Fi) at 91 of its sites in the UK by April. Business Systems Director Garry Barr said: “In this day and age, most individuals prefer the option of internet access, even when they are on holiday.”

Hosts with the most teach rivals a lesson

RISING STARS: Wrexham’s Leon Paul Junior Series fencers. zz160309fencing

WREXHAM Fencing Club members cleaned up at the Wrexham and Cheshire Schools Fencing Championship at Darland High School. Six of the 11 gold medals on offer at the big event went the way of fencers from the host club. George Morris, in only his second ever competition, won the Under 10s boys foil, while his clubmate Jack Davies, competing for the first time, was third. George Dolan and Bethany Ellis were the respective boys and girls winners of the U12s foil, with Bethany beating clubmate Olivia Owen-Sinclair in the gold medal match. Olivia’s brother Matthias came third in the U12s boys foil. Another family went home happy as Logan and Keir Mc-

Fencing Gillivary won the U10s boys sabre and U14s boys epee respectively, with Keir grabbing golden glory after overcoming clubmate Steven Unitt in the final. Kristofers Scipanovs, son of Wrexham coach Valerijs, claimed U14s boys foil gold with some superb tactical fencing, while Cassie Eades continued her improvement with U14s girls foil bronze. Jed Houghton and Ben Halley did not medal, but produced sterling performances in the U14s boys foil. Ben Hughes edged a thrilling fight with clubmate Jon Lambert on his way to a sixth-placed finish

in the last 16 of the 78-strong men’s epee at the Nottingham Open. Lambert’s defeat meant he had to settle for 16th while Stephanie Collister was 10th in the women’s foil. Over in Cardiff, Wrexham’s David Gregory, now training full-time with Team Melia in the Midlands, won men’s Welsh Closed Epee silver. Wrexham youngsters were out in force at the latest Leon Paul Junior Series contest in Ashton. Morris, in the U10s boys, and Houghton, in the U13s boys, made it through to the last 16. Luke Potts qualified for the last eight of the U15s boys, as did Eades in the U15s girls and Dolan in the U11s boys after knocking out clubmate Matthias Owen-Sinclair.

Same old story for misfiring Dragons Woking 1 Wrexham 1

DEAN Saunders admitted he was in danger of repeating himself after the stuttering Dragons missed the chance to move within six points of the Blue Square Premier play-off places on Saturday. Wes Baynes gave Saunders’ side an early lead but they were unable to add to it and Rob Elvins’ soft equaliser shortly after the restart ensured their worrying winless league run stretched to six matches. “It’s déjà-vu all over again, isn’t it,” said boss Saunders, who handed a debut to striker Matt Jansen. “You could just use last week’s interview and the week before that as well to be honest because it is the same. “We started off well, we played some good football after Wes scored but then it was suicide alert in the second half. I told them at half-time not to play offside and it was an awful goal to concede. We keep shooting ourselves in the foot because we can’t keep clean sheets.” Wrexham had already gone close through captain Ashley Westwood and Andy Fleming before Baynes, recalled after his midweek hat-trick for the reserves, broke the deadlock in the 11th minute with a deflected 25-yard free kick that wrong-footed

Basketball quarter despite a big nine points from Steve Roberts and four more from DaWaun Wells. With Wells and Pau Felin finding their range, ably assisted by rookies Arnas Liutkus and George Greenhalgh, the visitors overturned the de-

ATHLETICS: Wrexham Athletic Club’s Megan Rogers was crowned the Welsh Under 17s champion at the England & Wales U17s Pentathlon Championships in Sheffield. The multi-talented teenager set personal bests in the 60m hurdles (9.07secs) and the shot (9.06m) on her way to an overall fourth-placed finish. Amanda Wale and Ian Broadhurst were in the medals at the British Masters Indoor Championship at Lee Valley in London. Wale won the W35 60m hurdles (9.81secs) and came second in the 200m (27.91), third in the 60m (8.64) and fourth in the long jump (4.24m), while Broadhurst was second in the M50 200m (25.5secs) and 400m (55.86). Wrexham long-distance aces competed for North Wales at the UK Inter-Counties Cross Country Championships in Nottingham. Gina Paletta was the club’s best performer as she powered to 55th (25.58mins) in the U20s women’s race. Darren Rowlands was 200th (43.34) in the senior men’s followed by Daniel Weston in 213th (44.04) and Mike Robbins in 248th (45.17), while Alison Whitelaw was 240th (36.42) in the senior women’s. Jessica Arnull came 252nd (16.06) and Emily Rowlands 301st (18.10) in the U13s girls, Helen Blower 307th (23.44) in the U15s girls and James Roberts 163rd (17.02) and David Blower 211th (17.19) in the U15s boys. Darren Jones led Wrexham’s charge at the Stafford 20 Mile Road Race in 16th (2.07.05hours) followed by Ian James in 22nd (2.07.40) and the returning Andy Norgrove in 72nd (2.22.11). Mike Edwards was 87th (69.23mins) in the Carding Mill Canter and 92nd (60.01) in the Moel y Ci, while fellow fell racer Charles Ashley was 63rd (48.24) in the Pipe Dream. Lydia David has become the second Wrexham starlet coached by Geoff Ward to win the Ron Hill Athlete of the Month award. The 14-year-old, who won the U17s women’s 60m hurdles and shot titles at the North Wales Indoor Championships in January, has been given £150 to spend on Ron Hill kit. Wrexham’s Farndon 10k raised £1,000 for charity Help for Heroes.

GOLF: Ray Martin (75-8=67) was the emphatic Division One winner of the Seniors March Medal at Clays Golf Club. Peter Lynch (89-18=71) was four shots behind in second and Michael Carding (85-13=72) five behind in third. Reg Peacock (85-20=65) topped Division Two after edging Roger Hudson (90-24=66) into second, with Alwyn Williams (94-25=69) third. Paul R Williams, Paul Jeffs and Michael Eaton were the winners of the Club March Medal. Williams (74-9=65) just got the better of Brian Johnston (73-8=65) in Division One, with Graham David Jones (77-10=67) third, Jeffs (80-13=67) won Division Two from Mike Holt (81-14=67) and John Evans (80-12=68), with Division Three going the way of Eaton (82-18=64) from Ian Barwood (83-18=65) and Alan Wm Tudor (84-18=66). Graham Stokes (38) claimed the Seniors Competition from Ernie Williams (37), who was runner-up on a countback from Bob Brown (37).

Football excellent goalkeeper Daniel Knowles. It was one-way traffic and, after Jansen shot just over, only referee Matt Stewart will know why he did not award penalties for what looked like blatant fouls in the box on Baynes and Jansen. The decisions were to prove costly for the visitors as, after Jefferson Louis and Baynes passed up chances before the break, the relegation-threatened hosts equalised eight minutes after it. With the Dragons defence guilty of ball watching, Elvins raced on to a long ball over the top to slot in his first goal for Woking. So another disappointing day for Wrexham but they could take heart from the encouraging performance of former Blackburn Rovers and England Under 21s star Jansen. “It’s going to take a few games before I find my feet because my brain knows what I want to do but the legs are just not up to speed at the minute,” said Jansen, who played 65 minutes in his first competitive game for 18 months. “There were a few bits and pieces I felt good about but, hopefully, after a few games you’ll begin to see the best of me.”

Play-offs beckon after hard-fought victory NEWI Nets all but secured their place in the EBL Division Two play-offs with an 80-72 victory at rock-bottom University of Birmingham on Saturday. The hard-fought success means Nets should take their place in the end-of-season extravaganza barring a disaster. But they had to come from behind after the struggling hosts took a two-point advantage into the second

ficit to lead by five going into half-time. Nets then won the third quarter by one thanks to the sharp-shooting skills of Spaniard Felin and American Wells and the expert rebounding of Richard Parker and player-coach Matt Weedall. Birmingham stormed back in the final passage of play, however, and it was only the magic of Felin, with a

three-pointer and six consecutive free throws, that saw Weedall’s men home. Wells (26), Felin (25) and Roberts (16) top scored. Nets, who went down 92-89 at home to Northampton Neptunes on Sunday, welcome Team Northumbria on Saturday (5pm) for their final league game of the season. Tickets cost £2 for adults, £1 for juniors.

CYCLING: Defending Welsh Road Race champion Rob Partridge opened his season with a second-placed finish in the 90km Clayton Velo Spring Classic at Clitheroe. In wet and gritty conditions, the 23-year-old from Cymau was runner-up to British champion and Olympic and Commonwealth medallist Rob Hayles. Tour of Britain veteran Partridge is now a teammate of former world champion Hayles at the Halfords-Bikehut professional outfit.

Double the heartbreak

RUGBY UNION: Wrexham Youth lost their biggest match of the season on Saturday. The rising Bryn Estyn Road stars went down 15-8 at neighbours Mold in a North Wales Youth League Division One clash which also doubled up as a North Wales Youth Cup semi-final. A Jamie Morris penalty was all Wrexham had to show for the first half, but they upped the tempo after the break and a late penalty try ensured a nervy ending to what was a closely-fought encounter. See next week’s Wrexham Chronicle for a Wrexham team picture.

Dean Saunders’ side’s bid to end a six-game Blue Square Premier winless run got off to the worse possible start when Northwich took a 13th-minute lead through Kyle Perry, who took full advantage of a defensive mix-up between goalkeeper Anthony Williams and captain Ashley Westwood. But the visitors were level two minutes later when former Premier League star Matt Jansen broke his duck for the club by taking a pass from the excellent Ryan Flynn and lashing in his first competitive goal in more than four years. That did not deter the second-from-bottom hosts, however, and their direct approach caused havoc in Wrexham’s jittery backline. But boss Saunders’ nerves were eased when Nathan

SHOOT ON SIGHT: Dragons defender Aurelien Collin tries to break down stubborn Northwich on Tuesday. Fairhurst, in for Andy Fleming, drilled home a superb 30-yarder with 16 minutes to play. “We needed that,” said Saunders, who also recalled Carl Tremarco for the injured Sam Williamson and Michael Proc-

tor for the dropped Jefferson Louis. “It wasn’t the best we’ve played and we were all over the place at times. Mind you, I thought we were playing against the Harlem Globetrotters. They had about four

players that must have been about 6ft 7in. “It was a great goal by Nathan Fairhurst and a great goal by Matt Jansen and you could see after we scored the second our football became more relaxed. “But I didn’t enjoy watching the game. It was agony for me at times, what with some of the mix-ups that were happening in our back four. I didn’t enjoy watching that and something will be done about it before Saturday.” The win moved the Dragons, whose travelling support made up more than half the 1,709 crowd, up to seventh ahead of their crucial home double header. Wrexham entertain eighthplaced Crawley Town on Saturday (3pm) and sixth-placed Kidderminster Harriers on Monday (7.45pm). Winger Jon Brown and full-back Neil Taylor have been called into the Wales Under 21 squad for their UEFA U21s European Championship qualifiers in Luxembourg at the end of the month. Goalkeeper Chris Maxwell, who has just extended his contract with the Dragons until the end of next season, is on standby.

Double celebration for Druids NEWI Cefn Druids made it 24 hours to remember as they hauled themselves out of the Welsh Premier League drop spots with a vital victory over fellow strugglers Neath on Saturday. The 3-1 home win came hot on the heels of the announcement that Wrexham County Borough Council has given the go-ahead for the Ancients to build a new stadium complex at Rhosymedre. The development is crucial to the club’s future and goals from Ricky Evans, Mark Stewart and Jon Rush ensured Druids celebrated Friday’s big news in style. Evans opened the scoring in the 17th minute by heading in a Lee T Jones free kick before Stewart doubled the advantage 12 minutes later when he latched on to a weak defensive header and coolly slotted home.

Round-up Andrew Hill gave Neath hope when he fired home from the edge of the area two minutes after the restart and the same player had the chance to level the contest in the 80th minute after Chris Marriott was adjudged to have pushed Richard French in the box.

McGuigan’s heroics inspired the Plaskynaston Lane outfit forward and Rush made sure their six-game winless run came to an end when he finished off some fine work from Kevin Holsgrove a minute from time.
