Little Finn’s giant strides

FINN Davidge-Hesketh may be smaller than average, but the plucky four-year-old has already overcome her first big hurdle – her first day at school.

Just half the size of children her age, Finn has a uniform which could fit a six-month-old baby. But the intrepid youngster from Rhosllanerugog, Wrexham, lets nothing stand in her way despite being a primordial dwarf, which means she is among the smallest people in the world. At 25in tall and 14lb in weight, Finn was born with an incredibly rare condition called microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type 2 (MOPD II). Diagnosed at the age of two, she is the only primordial dwarf in North Wales, and only one of 150 in the UK. Doting parents Jonathan and Melanie have to deal with the risk of life-threatening brain conditions that could develop at any

School joy as girl defies condition

time, as well as daily hurdles such as finding clothes and cutlery suitable for their daughter. But while they know Finn’s life could be cut short, they are optimistic about her future after sharing stories and advice with families across the world. “Most of the people we’ve come across with Finn’s condition have made it through to adulthood,” said Jonathan. “Medical knowledge is so dated and there is no longer a bleak prognosis. “As parents, we don’t wrap Finn up in cotton wool, we let her be herself. She goes to nursery with children her own age, which is very important for her social and academic development.” He added: “People see her size before they see her when really she

is no different to other four-yearolds – she is independent, feisty, bright, vibrant and curious. “She has a great smile and lots of friends and will fit in well at Ysgol Babanod Borras Park Infants in Wrexham.” Later this year Finn is off to hospital for her yearly MRI scan. Primordial dwarfs must undergo regular checks for brain aneurisms and Moyamoya disease – two potentially fatal vascular conditions that could develop at any time. Jonathan said: “We’re a bit apprehensive about the scan but you’ve just got to deal with it when it happens.” Finn’s progress has been followed by cameras for TV channel Five’s Extraordinary People: Britain’s Tiniest Toddlers, which was screened yesterday.

INSIDE STORY

Rural volunteers to give youths a role model A VOLUNTEER project aimed at bringing together communities by creating relationships between at-risk young people and residents in rural areas has been launched. The intention is to help the young person reach their potential by encour-

aging, listening and guiding their decision-making. In some cases the older person in the relationship may be the only positive role model the young person has who is not in an authority position. The project secured funding through the Rural Development Plan 2007-2013

through the National Assembly for Wales, Wrexham County Borough Council and Northern Marches Cymru. It will work in the communities of rural Wrexham to reduce anti-social behaviour, offending rates and the fear of crime. Rural development officer Helen Norton said: “Nine of the 12 wards in

Wrexham had previously stated that preventing anti-social behaviour in their local areas was a top priority. “This project will provide local residents with the opportunity to tackle these issues head on.” To volunteer for the scheme, call Helen on 01978 268 140.

Breakfast at Number 10 THE chairman of the North Wales Police Authority was at Number 10 for a breakfast meeting with Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. Cllr Ian Roberts, from Chirk, was among the chairs of police authorities and chief constables from across the UK for an event to mark the first anniversary of neighbourhood policing. The meeting, which lasted 90 minutes, was an opportunity to celebrate the roll-out of neighbourhood policing teams. Mr Roberts said: “It was a tonic for the troops as

Cllr Ian Roberts well as the chance to look ahead to the next stage of the Government’s programme, including the local Policing Pledges introduced last year.” The Policing Pledges are about the standards and level of service people can expect from a police team and spending

more time on the beat. Mr Brown said: “Having your own neighbourhood police team, dedicated to tackling the issues that really matter to you, is making a real difference to communities up and down the country. “The commitment which all forces have shown, signing up to the Policing Pledge, seals this new deal between the police and the public.” Mr Roberts was able to raise a number of Welsh matters with the Home Secretary, including the link between the Home Office and the National Assembly for Wales and police funding.

Thief in contempt of court A JUDGE told a young woman who stole £22,000 from her mother and disabled sister he would take no action over a contempt when she failed to co-operate with a financial investigation under The Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA). Judge John Rogers QC summoned Rebecca Mogridge, of Langford Close, Wrexham, to court to explain. But her barrister Debra White said Mogridge provided all the necessary information for the POCA proceedings to continue. The judge adjourned for a financial hearing in May and warned her Mogridge had put herself at risk of a prison

sentence by being in contempt of court, but decided to take no further action. Miss White said Mogridge had no assets and was in debt. At an earlier hearing, the court heard how Mogridge, 25 at the time, developed a £100-a-day cocaine habit. But she had been able to get off drugs and in February admitted theft and fraud and asked for three other theft offences to be considered. She received a 10-month sentence suspended for two years, was placed on supervision for a year and must follow a six-month drugs course run by the probation service.

THE new household recycling centre in Brymbo, Wrexham, has opened. The purpose-built facility has improved recycling facilities and access to skips, and residents no longer have to wait while skips are emptied as all HGVs will be separated from the public. It forms part of the new PFI contract signed in May 2007 and was constructed by Waste Recycling Group (WRG), which will run and maintain the site on behalf of Wrexham County Borough Council. Residents can recycle newspapers, magazines, plastic and glass bottles, cans, clothing, wood, cardboard, rubble, scrap, garden waste, batteries, oil and white goods. The facility will be open every day except Christmas Day. Wrexham mayor Cllr David Griffiths, who officially opened the site, said: “I know the old site was very busy and I have no doubts that this new and

modern recycling centre will be just as popular. “Recycling rates are up and residents can now look forward to increasing their recycling rates by using a safer and cleaner site.” David Rees, general manager of WRG, said: “The redevelopment of Brymbo’s household waste recycling centre is a further step forward in the provision of a range of exciting new facilities that will secure for Wrexham a more sustainable future for waste and resource management.” This site is the first of three to be built by WRG for Wrexham council under the PFI. A new materials recovery facility is being constructed on Wrexham Industrial Estate which also incorporates a composting facility. The site will start to come on line in the summer. At the end of September the Plas Madoc household recycling centre will reopen following a six-month refurbishment.

Leaking roof at new shopping centre WORK on a £100m shopping centre is having to be redone because it is leaking – only six months after it opened.

Pools of water were discovered in the multi-storey car park under the Eagles Meadow complex caused by water dripping through the ceiling. The flagship retail complex opened in October last year. Now workers are digging up the plaza above the car park to waterproof it properly. Last week the showpiece staircase up to the centre had to be repaired, with one side fenced off to the public. Developer Wilson Bowden said it was a teething problem and subcontractors who carried out the work were having to sort it out. Eagles Meadow centre manager Kevin Critchley, who recently took over the post, said the problems with seals around the building only emerged after it opened. He said: “After it was finished, it was found to have leaks. They were finding a lot of pools of water in the car parks. “Now they are having to dig up flag stones and get right down to the tanking to make sure the leaks are stopped.” Last week the water was still visible dripping into the car park through the ceiling. There can be no guarantee the source of the leak is directly above the pools so workers are having to look at

NEWSFile Burglary admitted

A MAN has admitted a burglary – and that he lied to police by telling them someone else was responsible. Dominic Thomas Hughes, 21, appeared at Mold Crown Court charged with burglary in Edwin Terrace, Denbigh, on November 24 and perverting the course of justice by making a false statement to the police he had seen a named person committing the dwelling house burglary. Judge John Rogers QC bailed him on the condition he does not enter Denbigh, lives at his father’s address in Ffordd Llanerch, Penycae, reports daily to Wrexham police and has no contact with prosecution witnesses.

A DVD project, which featured two young people from Wrexham talking about their experiences of being homeless, has been nominated for a national award. The duo, from The Foyer in Wrexham, a supported living project managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, helped script and edit the film and act scenes about life as a young homeless person. More than 100 service users were asked to contribute their ideas for the

project and they held their own X Factor-style audition to decide who would appear in the DVD. The project, led by Scott Robinson, a Clwyd Alyn project worker from Greenbank Villas in Flint, has been nominated for the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS) Cymru awards, with the winner announced on May 1. The annual awards are presented by TPAS, which promotes the involvement of tenants and residents with their landlords.

A MAN who was told he only had days to live after suffering heart failure has fully recovered and now has a new career on the canals. Garth Jukes, 64, of Gwersyllt, had been the landlord of a pub, working up to 20 hours a day, for three years when he was diagnosed with a heart condition. He said: “I was very ill at the time and only given days to live. I’d woken up and my body had blown up overnight – I looked like the Michelin man. “I had been working so hard to pay the bills and keep the pub going, it was highly stressful.”

The father-of-two spent 18 months out of work and on incapacity benefits before spotted a job opportunity taking pensioners across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on a narrowboat. But he had to complete a £1,000 boatmaster’s course, which he couldn’t afford. He said: “I went to the Jobcentre and they put me in touch with A4e Wales, who were able to fund me to go on the course on the proviso that there was a full-time job at the end of it. “Being a boatmaster is a dream come true. There’s no stress in this job compared to running a pub and I love it.”

University tops the student dropout list

Poll shows 16% quit in first year

MORE students than ever are walking away from university courses because of personal and academic pressures.

Wrexham’s Glyndw ˆ r University topped the poll by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), which shows 1,000 freshers drop out every year in Wales. It’s sparked concerns failures in the academic system could hinder rather than help revive the economy. Business experts have warned during the recession universities have to do even more to ensure the country has a skilled workforce to meet the needs of a changing economy and not add to the dole queues across Wales. CBI director general Richard Lambert said: “The class of 2009 will be leaving university and entering the labour market at the worst time for many years, when businesses are under pressure and unemployment is rising. “The recession – and the resulting increase in competition for jobs – throws into sharper focus the imperative for graduates to have the attributes to succeed in the workplace. “In addition to acquiring the strong academic and technical knowledge required for many roles, our graduates and postgraduates also need the employability skills and positive attitude that employers value in every new recruit.” The figures show more than 1,150 students dropped out of Welsh universities in

Police crack down on burglaries OFFICERS from Wrexham CID and the local neighbourhood policing team are cracking down on burglaries in Wrexham. Policing teams have been conducting high-visibility patrols in the Caia Park area and its surrounds, to reassure the public. This has been supported by early morning operations targeting suspects. The local Community Safety Partnership is also implementing measures to make it harder for burglars to operate. Detective Inspector Dave Roome of Wrexham CID said: “The public should be reassured that we are taking all possible steps to prevent burglaries from happening. “At this moment in time, there is a large team of detectives, supported by community police officers and PCSOs, who are all working to catch offenders. “No-one deserves to be the victim of burglary, and if the public take sensible precautions and continue to give us information, I am confident we will stop further offences from happening.” Anyone with any information about a burglary should call Wrexham CID on 0845 607 1001 (Welsh line) or 0845 607 1002 (English line) or Crimestoppers

NEWSFile Curfew order breached

A MAN has been convicted of breaching his curfew order on seven occasions – and he blamed his partner for refusing to let him in. James Smith Dunn, 33, of Churchton Drive, Wrexham, had been convicted in his absence at an earlier hearing. Flintshire Magistrates Court in Mold heard he had been late seven times for his 8pm-7am curfew between December 11 and January 24. His solicitor Justine McVitie, defending, said Dunn had complied well with the order but he was having domestic problems and the seven instances occurred when his partner refused him entry. The curfew order had since ended and assistant District Judge Jack McGarva fined Dunn £70 and told him to pay £200 costs for the original offences of theft and failing to answer his bail.

Glyndw ˆ r University, which changed its name last year from the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education, saw 16.1% or 60 students of its 360 full-time degree entrants leave before the end of their first year. A spokesman said significant actions have been put in place in recent years to improve retention including attendance tracking and peer support. In 2005-06 Glamorgan University had the highest number of dropouts – 275 which is

the equivalent to 15.7%. Peter Crofts, Glamorgan’s director of marketing and student recruitment, said: “Our students come from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds and as such have to juggle commitments such as part-time jobs, families and financial concerns.” Chris Franks, Plaid Cymru AM for South Wales Central, said: “This indicates some students may have taken the wrong courses so all universities need to work hard to ensure the areas being studied suit the individual. “Options to transfer to alternative courses should be explored.”

OLYMPIC gold medallist rower Tom James has waded in to support the British Heart Foundation’s North Wales Bike Ride by encouraging fellow North Walians to don the lycra for a very good cause. Tom James MBE, 25, originally from Coedpoeth, near Wrexham, won gold at the Beijing Olympics last summer in the flagship men’s cox-

less four crew. Although unable to take part himself this year, James has given his full support to the BHF Bike Ride, which pedals out of Rhyl’s arena on Sunday, May 10. Speaking at Coed Llandegla Forest Visitor Centre, near Wrexham, he said: “The British Heart Foundation’s North Wales Bike Ride is a fantastic event that can obviously make a real dif-

ference in raising awareness of looking after your heart and keeping active. “Any event that encourages people to take part in any form of exercise, while helping a very worthy charity deserves applause.” The 15-mile route starts between 9am and 10am.

HUGHEStheVIEWS Politician has a biased view A NORTH Wales Police pilot scheme which saw cops breathalyse boozing youngsters has resulted in a 20% fall in anti-social behaviour. The force has seen 800 fewer incidents of street drinking, unruly behaviour and substance misuse in Conwy in the past 12 months, com-

pared to the previous year. There has also been an 8% drop in crime, equivalent to 400 offences. The pilot project was rolled out last spring, when officers carrying breathalysers were sent out to crack down on drinking hotspots. Any children found with drink in their system were marched home. Breathalysers were used alongside alcohol testing strips dipped into soft drink bottles to see if they had been spiked with alcohol. Now forces across the UK have shown an interest in the pilot scheme and plan to introduce their own projects. Of course, some will view the idea of breath-testing youngsters as Draconian and

another attack on civil liberties. And while it’s true officers must be careful not to drive a wedge between the teenagers they are targeting, the benefits are all to clear. Being proactive and tackling anti-social behaviour, street drinking, rowdiness, substance misuse and nuisance calls head on means in the long run there a fewer victims. And if our streets are safer and people, particularly the elderly, can enjoy getting out and about without the fear of running into gangs of drunk teenagers then we should support the police’s innovative scheme and back it being rolled out across the region.

MARTYN Jones’ View from Westminster, supposedly a topical commentary on current issues, is nothing other than a blatant and misguided attack on the Conservative Party. This is not in the least surprising from a representative of a failed Government. There are two crucial points: the second fiscal stimulus and the abuse of MPs’ expenses. First, Mervyn King’s comments that we can’t afford another fiscal stimulus are a defining moment in the political argument on the recession. The big debate in British politics about the recession has been whether or not the country could afford a debt-funded fiscal stimulus. When the Conservatives opposed the VAT cut last autumn Gordon Brown said we were alone. But now even the Governor of the Bank of England has backed our argument and went on to say monetary policy should be the main tool to tackle the recession. This is hugely significant and vindicates the big decision taken by David Cameron and George Osborne on the economy. It’s the Prime Minister who is now isolated at home and abroad. In relation to MPs’ allowances, Tony McNulty needs to be honest about exactly how he used his second home. It is essential the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards gets to the bottom of whether the Employment Minister has been abusing parliamentary allowances to fund his parents’ home. And as for Jacqui Smith’s claims, including claims for adult movies to be paid by the

taxpayer, it will be interesting to hear what Mr Lucas has to say about his former boss in his next Views from Westminster. Does Mr Lucas approve of the Home Secretary’s claim for more than £100,000 of our money for a room? Does Mr Lucas remember the Labour promise to be whiter than white? I know Mr Lucas ignored a recent invitation from me to attend a public meeting in Marford so I repeat the invitation – name your date, Mr Lucas. ERIC OWEN Wrexham

Stay on the ball to beat cancer

WE have just had Keep Your Eye On The Ball Focus Fortnight, which aimed to get football fans thinking about their testicles and the importance of checking for any unusual lumps or bumps. The fortnight is run by Everyman, the UK’s leading male cancer campaign, in partnership with The FA and The PFA. This year I lent my support by appearing in an advert which showcases my unique ‘ball skills’. If you haven’t already seen it you can watch it by simply logging on to www.keepyoureyeontheball.org. It’s a fun way to shed light on a very serious issue because if blokes check themselves regularly and catch testicular cancer early, there is a 99% chance of survival. So, lads, don’t be scared – do something. And ladies, help your man out. Watch out for our adverts in football stadiums across the

country and don’t forget to Keep Your Eye on the Ball all year round. ■ To find out how to donate to the campaign or get involved, log on to www.keepyoureyeontheball.org. TEDDY SHERINGHAM

Assembly arrogance

THE imposition of the ludicrous title of ‘The Betsi Cadwaladr University Local Health Board’ shows the arrogance of the Welsh Assembly, particularly in view of the opposition of North Wales NHS staff. I do not know anyone who is in favour of this bizarre name. We were told an Assembly would give us more power over our own affairs. Instead, we find that, instead of being ignored by Westminster, we are now ignored by Cardiff. I suggest the Welsh Assembly also undergoes a name change – to the South Wales Assembly.

Impact of minimum wage THIS April has marked a decade of the minimum wage. As my colleague Martyn Jones MP detailed last week, there are a range of financial measures being brought in this year which are set to benefit taxpayers, those who receive tax credits, pensioners and others. As well as that legislation, which will make a real difference and provide real help now, new regulations have also been brought in strengthening the minimum wage. The minimum wage is one of the Labour Government’s greatest achievements. As I said in a previous Chronicle column, the minimum wage is now such a part of Britain’s social and economic fabric that it is hard to remember it has not always been there. The column last year marked the legislation passing into law, and this April marks 10 years since that law came into force. It is sobering to think that, with no set wage imposed,

VIEW FROM

WESTMINSTER Wrexham Labour MP Ian Lucas

people 10 yeas ago worked for as little as £1.20 an hour – roughly equivalent to about £1.40 today. Last October, the Minimum Wage rose to £5.73 an hour for those aged 22 and over, to £4.77 for 18-21-year- olds and to £3.53, for 16- to 17-year-olds. More than a million people, two-thirds of them women, benefited from the changes. It is interesting to note how the political mood toward the minimum wage has changed too. Its introduction 10 years ago was opposed by a range of politicians, including many members of the current Shadow Cabinet.

It is rare to hear the minimum wage being attacked now, even by those who were vocal in their position to its introduction. Indeed, the concerns most often expressed now come from the other side of the argument – that more needs to be done to crack down on those who don’t pay the minimum wage. There are helplines which people can report abuses on – call the National Minimum Wage helpline to do so on 0845 600 678 – but the Government has recognised further action is needed. That is why the minimum wage’s anniversary has been marked with the advent of tough new automatic penalties for employers who cheat their workers out of the minimum wage. In difficult economic times, such as the present climate, measures such as the minimum wage matter more. Ensuring workers get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work is vital for the economy and I am very proud it has now been a decade since this real help was secured.

Fake DVD man had porn films A MAN who was caught selling counterfeit DVD films in Wrexham had a number of pornographic films in the boot of his car, a court heard. Zhang Wu, 43, of Manchester, who followed the proceedings at Mold Crown Court with the aid of a Chinese interpreter, admitted four tradesmarks offences and four charges of possessing unclassified video films with intent to sell them. He was jailed for six months and a previous three-month suspended prison sentence for precisely the same offences was imposed – making nine months in all.

newsline: 01978 351515

The court heard how Wu was stopped in Bridge Street, Wrexham, on March 6, following an alert from a pub licensee via the shop link radio system to the town’s CCTV operators. James Cullen, prosecuting, told how the defendant had a plastic carrier bag containing 83 DVDs, a shoulder bag containing 138 DVDs and in the boot of his car police found DVDs of a sexual nature. When interviewed, he said he was selling them for someone else. He had £400 in cash on him, but said he had not sold any that day. Police also found five A-Z street

maps and atlases of various cities in the UK. Judge John Rogers QC said it was clear they were maps of cities where he intended to commit further offences. Paul Murphy, defending last Tuesday, said his client had already spent 28 days in custody which he suggested was ‘more than amply punishment’. His involvement was not sophisticated. An investigation under The Proceeds of Crime Act will now take place to see how much of his illgotten gains, if any, can be confiscated.

New arrivals for county park

CUTE: Broad Bean and Runner Bean are making themselves at home at Ty Mawr Country Park.

VISITORS to Ty Mawr Country Park are in for an added treat this Easter holiday. Staff have been working around the clock helping to deliver this season’s 32 lambs. All mothers and their offspring are said to be doing well and this year the lambs have been named after vegetables. A spokesman said: “Ty Mawr would like to thank all the volunteers and junior rangers who helped during the lambing period. Our job would have been much harder without you. “Why not pop down to the park during spring and have a look at the new-born lambs – they don’t stay cute for long!”

Judge John Rogers QC adjourned the case until May, when he will be asked to enter a plea to the charge.

Radio cash boost

COMMUNITY radio station Calon FM in Wrexham has securing £18,500 funding from this year’s £100,000 National Assembly for Wales’s Community Radio fund.

Family charity effort spans the Atlantic A MUM and son have joined forces with a firm of accountants to launch an anglo-American fundraising effort for injured soldiers.

Children’s day nursery owner Wendy Evans, 52, and her son, Nik, 26, will be running in aid of Help for Heroes – on opposite sides of the Atlantic. The cause is close to both their hearts as Nik did two tours of Iraq as a corporal in the Intelligence Corps. The fund has been kick-started thanks to a £100 donation from Wrexham chartered accountants Coxeys. Coxeys, who look after the accounts for Wendy’s business, the Brambles Day Nursery in Gwersyllt, will also help administer the fund. Nik is in training for the gruelling 50-mile race in Washington DC, where he works as an analyst, and hopes to raise £3,000. The aptly named off-road Endurance Challenge takes place on Saturday, September 19. The day after Wendy will be taking part in her eighth Great North Run.

By Eleanor Barlow It’s a feat made all the more remarkable by the fact Wendy was born with a life-threatening hole in the heart which needed open heart surgery when she was six. Nik, a former pupil of Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, said: “Help for Heroes is doing incredible work. “They are rebuilding the lives of men and women who have been devastated by terrible injuries. “Sadly, as months go by, more and more soldiers need the services only Help for Heroes can provide.” As a mother of an Iraqi veteran, Wendy has a personal reason for supporting Help for Heroes. She said: “Nik came through Iraq unscathed but it was a terrible time for me as his mother. “I hated it when he was in Basra. I couldn’t listen to the news as I didn’t want to know about it. When somebody died you’d think the worst.” Michael Coxey, a director at Coxeys, said: “It was particularly moving when Wendy explained what she was raising money for and the reason why she was doing it.”

ON YOUR MARKS: Wendy Evans with Julie Moore of Coxeys.

Memories of coal mining

newsline: 01978 351515

New bishop of St Asaph ordained THE Rt Rev Dr Gregory Cameron has been ordained as Bishop of St Asaph in a ceremony at Llandaff Cathedral. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Dr Rowan Williams, was the preacher at the service. Dr Cameron, 49, who originates from Monmouthshire, has been deputy secretary general of the Anglican Communion. Prior to that he was chaplain to Dr Rowan Williams when he was Archbishop of Wales. Dr Cameron is the 76th Bishop of St Asaph. He follows Bishop John Davies, a former Chronicle journalist from Mold, who retired at the end of last year. The Archbishop of Wales, the Most Rev Barry Morgan, said: “This was a very joyful and affirming service.”

SPECIAL SERVICE: The Bishop of Swansea & Brecon, Bishop of Bangor, Bishop of St Asaph, Archbishop of Wales, Bishop of Monmouth, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff and Bishop of St David's.

Spring Fever Prices PIT HISTORY: Former Wrexham MP Tom Ellis officially opens the exhibition with Cllr Bob Dutton. THIS year sees the 25th anniversary of the 1984-85 miners’ strike and the 75th anniversary of the Gresford Colliery Disaster, the worst accident in the history of the North Wales coalfield. To mark these, Bersham Heritage Centre in Wrexham is staging the first exhibition on the history of the North Wales coalfield. It features memorabilia from the North Wales coal mining past, including an embroidered poem marking the 1889 Brynmallly Colliery Disaster, along with mining equipment and tools. Local miners assisted museum staff in the development of the exhibition. Alongside the historic objects, it reveals what it was like to work down

a mine in the 19th Century and the history behind the Mold Riots and the Gresford Colliery Disaster. Visitors will also be able to see how mining changed during the centuries and enjoy a series of films. Cllr Bob Dutton, lead member for communities and performance, said the exhibition is not one to miss. He said: “Coal mining played a significant role in shaping our communities and the environment in which we live, yet many children today have never seen a piece of coal. “It is particularly appropriate that we mount a special exhibition this year.” The exhibition is on show until October 31. Admission is free.

DJ in tune with safety on roads RADIO presenter Dave Williams, of Wrexham’s community station Calon FM, was cut from a mock car crash by firefighters to highlight the importance of safety behind the wheel. Firefighters from Wrexham and Caernarfon conducted extrications at the Entec site on Wrexham Industrial Park, learning about the latest road traffic collision equipment to be used by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service. They will now instruct the rest of the crews on how to use the new tools, introduced as part of a major investment by the service. Dave, who gives the service a fortnightly radio slot, said: “The experience was very tense and frightening – I would never want to be in that situation for real.”

an eight day programme of more than 40 public lectures and presentations, including a series of astronomy-themed talks, tying in with the 2009 Year of Astronomy, and an opening talk from Philippa Forrester, once host of BBC’s Tomorrow’s World. Corrina added: “The festival attracted people from all over the region – from Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire to Shropshire and Cheshire. It continues to be as popular as ever.” For further information, or to find out how to add your name to the mailing list for the 2010 festival, visit www.wrexhamsf.com.

CHIRK Castle has gone all romantic this springtime. The tragic story of Charles Darwin’s first love will feature in a lecture at the castle, near Llangollen, as part of the bicentennial celebrations of his birth. The great naturalist left his first love Fanny Mostyn Owen when he set sail

on The Beagle for a five-year voyage. He wrote many love letters to ‘la belle Fanny’ during his journey. Sadly, there was no happy ending to the love story as he discovered Fanny married Robert Myddelton Biddulph, of Chirk Castle, while he was away. The castle has the only portrait of Fanny in existence, which will be on

By Eleanor Barlow and support to my clients based on my own experience of having a leg amputated.” The 44-year-old mother of two has had problems with her knee since a hockey injury when she was 15. In 2008 an external frame was put on her leg with wires and pins going into the bone, but some of

the pins got infected. She said: “Over six months, despite extensive treatment, the infection worsened and the hole inside the bone got bigger meaning my only option was an amputation above the knee. “I am now learning to walk again with a prosthetic knee and have just started driving again.” Rachael has won several highprofile cases, including £5m for a client brain-damaged at birth.

FIREFIGHTERS are urging residents to report the perpetrators of deliberate fires following a shed fire in Wrexham. Crews from Wrexham were called to the fire in Ernest Parry Road at 12.33am on Wednesday. The fire affected the double shed containing a number of items including lawnmowers, a patio heater, petrol and tools. Police officers in the area alerted the occupants of the house, a

couple in their sixties. They were shaken but unhurt, as the shed is about 20 metres from the house. The fire destroyed the shed and is thought to have been started deliberately. Harvey Campbell, watch manager at Blue Watch, said: “Deliberate fires tie up resources that could be saving lives elsewhere, and put the lives of both the public and firefighters at risk.

“When crews are called to attend life critical incidents such as house fires and road traffic collisions, appliances are not diverted from this type of deliberate fire, the next available fire appliance is sent. This may involve a time delay which could prove fatal.” To report any suspicious activity, call the police on 0845 607 1002 (English line) or 0845 607 1001 (Welsh).

Dog walking exercise WREXHAM County Borough Council is encouraging residents to get walking their pet dogs more to improve health and fitness. It says it can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, burn off calories, help you meet new friends and improve your immune system and self-esteem. Studies have also shown that being taken for a walk improves dogs mentally as well as physically. Helen Cook, senior environmental health officer, said: “It is essential that your dog is given two walks of at least half-an-hour each day. This gives him the opportunity to sniff around and meet other dogs – all things that use his brain and help keep him happy and contented. “While out with your dog please remember to pick up after him and be aware of him at all times, so that the walk is a pleasurable one for everyone.”

Mayor of Wrexham traces his family roots THE mayor of Wrexham is encouraging residents to make use of the town’s archives to trace their family history. Cllr David Griffiths has been using the A N Palmer Centre for Local Studies and Archives, located in Wrexham County Borough Museum, to retrace his roots. He has discovered he came from a

family of brick makers and may have French ancestry. With the aid of census returns, newspapers, parish registers, non-conformist registers, directories, electoral registers and the Ancestry Library Edition website, the mayor was able to trace his family history dating to the early 1800s. His grandfather married a girl of

possible French dissent in 1903 and went on to have 13 children. There is a strong possibility that the woman’s family were of French origin as Thomas Turner brought Frenchmen to his Caughley China Works in the 18th Century. He said: “I knew a little about my family history but have always wanted to trace my family tree. It is aston-

ishing how far back we have been able to go and what we have found out about my family’s history. I had no idea my ancestors might have been French! “I would encourage anyone wanting to trace their family history to go to the A N Palmer Centre.” For details, visit www.wrexham.gov. uk/archives or call 01978 317973.

Driver ‘took the law into his own hands’ A VOLUNTEER bell-ringer was spared jail for driving at a student who allegedly attacked his girlfriend.

Judge Roger Dutton told Daniel Shaun Thomas, 20, of Pont Adam Crescent, Ruabon, Wrexham, his dangerous driving was ‘completely and wholly out of character’. David Baldwin, 18, was forced to leap over the bonnet of Thomas’s car on Old Wrexham Road outside Overleigh Primary School on August 14 last year. It came five days after police decided not to pursue allegations against Mr Baldwin made by Thomas’s partner. But Judge Dutton said: “That does not excuse him from taking the law into his own hands. It was not even deemed appropriate to charge the young man.” Mr Baldwin had been on his way to collect AS-level results from Catholic High School, where Thomas’s girlfriend also attended, when he was pointed out to Thomas who then revved his engine and drove towards him – with all four wheels on the pavement – at about 30mph. At Chester Crown Court on Friday, Judge Dutton told Thomas: “You had no right whatsoever to do what you did. “You completely lost your presence of mind.” The judge saw glowing references from Thomas’s colleagues at the Llangollen railway, where he volunteers as a signaller, and the church where he helps to ring the bells. He added: “It’s right to say that in the normal run of youth that pass through the doors of this court you present an unusual background.” Thomas was ordered to do 300 hours of unpaid work and given a nine-month young offenders institution sentence, suspended for two years. He was also banned from driving for two years.

Talks held to boost furniture factory

BOOST: Cllr David Bithell and Ian Lucas MP meet staff at the Remploy factory in Wrexham. WREXHAM MP Ian Lucas has visited Remploy to meet staff, unions and management to discuss ways of boosting the company. He was joined at the furniture factory in Railway Road by Stansty councillor David Bithell,

whose ward covers the site and who campaigned with him to keep it in Wrexham alongside the town’s AM Lesley Griffiths. In 2007 the site had been earmarked for closure but was saved in the November after officials decided it should escape the na-

tionwide cull that saw 28 centres close. Part of the meeting involved working on new ways to bring customers to the Wrexham plant and plans are being discussed to develop further local orders for the plant.

Canine law enforcers

Picnic record attempt

Art sale for hospice

WREXHAM schoolchildren have been given a true insight into the work of drug detection dogs thanks to police community support officer Lyn Davies from the Pentre Broughton ward. PCSO Davies said the visits to Bryn Teg Primary School and Black Lane School were a great success. “The children were given demonstrations by the dogs and their handler on how they search people and were given talks on the tasks the dogs perform,” said PCSO Davies. “It was a good way of getting to know the children and getting an important message across in a fun and relaxed environment.”

PICNICKERS from Wrexham are invited to join a world record-setting event. The Family Week Picnic takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, May 25. Get ready to grab your hamper, rug and lunchboxes and join mums, dads and their children as part of the Guinness world record attempt for the largest picnic across multiple venues at 1pm.

First-time buyers invited to seek advice PEOPLE who want to get on to the property ladder are being offered the chance to get advice from housing experts at a first-time buyers fair this Saturday. The event, at Glyndw ˆ r University’s new state-of-the-art conference centre, aims to bring prospective homebuyers together with estate agents, house builders, housing associations, surveyors, solicitors and mortgage advisors. It is being held by Wrexham County Borough Council in association with First House Network and will run from 11am2.30pm. Local and national companies

will exhibit and offer advice and information. There will also be a series of impartial seminars throughout the event covering subjects including the legal process of buying a property, what mortgage finance is available and how to get it, how parents can help their children on to the ladder, affordable housing options, information about negotiating a property purchase and how to make an offer. Members of Wrexham council’s housing department will also be on hand to offer advice to people on affordable housing options available in the borough. People who attend the event will also have the opportunity to win

vouchers from B&Q. Aled Roberts, leader of Wrexham council, said: “In the current economic climate, first-time buyers may struggle because of a lack of support or a feeling of isolation. It is becoming increasingly hard to get on to the property ladder and to secure a mortgage and people need all the help they can get. “The first-time buyers event is a great way to get the right advice and guidance from the people in the housing business.” He added: “While the fair is aimed at first-time buyers, anyone who is looking for housing advice is welcome to come along.” n For details about the event, visit www.firsthousenetwork.com.

Tepee for great outdoors vsehxiwx

with

Ian Johnson

IT is astonishing how the multi-purpose vehicle has made such gains in recent years.

In addition to the mainstream large MPVs there is now a whole new strain of other options, such as Peugeot's Partner Tepee which tick all the boxes when it comes to family and recreational transport. Many like the Tepee are spawned by current light commercial vehicle technology. But although the Tepee is based on the Peugeot Partner commercial, make no mistake, this is no ordinary van derivative but a well-planned and comfortable option that has 'can do' stamped all over it. Such vehicles are not new. Hillman was producing something similar, but with much restricted access, called the Husky in the 1950s based on the Minx van. But the concept of multi-purpose vehicle technology is now in the fast lane with massive economical and environmental pressure to reduce the number of vehicles on the drive and the keep their size down to the optimum. And here is where models like the Partner Tepee win. It features a classy modular design and although being very capacious it is nevertheless stylish with tremendous appeal to both the younger buyer and the young at heart.

MULTI-PURPOSE VEHICLE: Tiykisx7w Tevxriv Xitii2 The three Partner Tepee versions, Urban, S and Outdoor are pitched at a wide spectrum of the market, but the Outdoor is out to attract customers who enjoy exploring locations off the beaten track. Sharing the same length as a typical family hatchback, but with a great deal more interior space, adaptability and greater rear accessibility thanks to the two sliding side doors, the Partner Tepee offers a great deal as a family car. Maybe we have been getting it wrong all these years and van thinking offers the better family transport solution. The Partner Tepee certainly states a convincing case for it. Driving qualities are extremely good, and from Tepee's commanding driving

position it certainly does not lead you to believe that you are driving a van. All Partner Tepee models share a comprehensive standard specification which includes: 15” steel wheels, remote central door locking and deadlocks, one touch electric front windows, ABS and EBA (emergency braking assistance), retractable and removable parcel shelf luggage cover, sliding side doors, full width front overhead storage shelf, radio /MP3 compatible CD player with remote controls, rev counter, driver’s airbag, passenger airbag with deactivation switch, power steering and driver’s and passengers’ seat armrests.

The Outdoor, model includes manual air-conditioning, silver trim around air intake, black side protection mouldings, silver lower rear panel trim, side and curtain airbags, cruise control with speed limiter, roof bars, under engine protection tray, uprated 215/55 R16 tyres on 16” Arenal alloy wheels and raised suspension. It is available with a choice of two HDi diesel engine options including the range topping 1.6 litre HDi 110 bhp with a diesel particulate filter. My Outdoor test vehicle was full of interesting features but the keyword with this model is storage. Hidey holes and handy space include a glove box that can be cooled; an open area in the passenger-side of the lower centre console.Tepee Outdoor has to be one of the most capable family transport solutions in a highly competitive market.

Steve Hughes

IF travelling from one place to another in leisurely and hassle-free fashion is all you aspire to in life, then Chevrolet may just have the right car.

It comes in the shape of the Matiz, which is just about as small as any five-door hatchback can possibly be. The cabin is narrow so ideally, it will accommodate four rather than five people but it is tall and relatively short, which makes it very easy to get in and out of and a doddle to park in tight spaces. The Matiz interior is fairly sparse in comparison to some of its rivals and performance is among the most leisurely of any car. However, it is inexpensive to buy and cheap to run, it is simplicity itself to drive and as a short-distance runabout, it is ideal. The Matiz is a decent all-rounder. The automatic model costs £7,330 and comes with front electric windows and a CD player. There is a three-star safety rating for crash-worthiness but little in the way of active safety features. Beneath the bonnet lies an engine of just 800cc, which when mated to the optional automatic transmission endows the Matiz with acceleration to 60mph in 22 seconds, a top speed of 85mph and a CO2 rating of 136g/km.

Quartet back

STREET STAR: Bill Ward in John Osborne's classic play Look Back in Anger. FORMER Coronation Street star Bill Ward turns ‘angry young man’ for a production of the British stage classic Look Back in Anger at Clwyd Theatr Cymru, Mold. Jimmy Porter is funny, clever, charismatic: he should have it all. Has the world let him down? Or is he intent on destroying himself and everyone he loves? Alison, his wife, suffers his furies on a daily basis and the arrival of her best

friend can only inflame Jimmy some more. The story of a disillusioned young graduate, Look Back in Anger, John Osborne’s 1956 masterpiece, is a shocking love triangle, exploding with the extraordinary passions of everyday life. Bill Ward played bullying builder Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street, who was eventually killed off by Tracy Barlow, which earned a 2007 British

soap award for Best Exit. Look Back in Anger also stars Nia Gwynne as Alison, Laura Howard (Midsomer Murders’ Cully) as Helena, Robb Storr as Cliff and Robert East as the Colonel. ■ Look Back in Anger can be seen at the Anthony Hopkins Theatre, Mold, until Saturday, April 18. To book, call 0845 330 3565 or visit www.clwyd-theatr-cymru.co.uk.

(9.3secs). David Blower was the star of the show for Wrexham at the Wigan Open. He powered to U15s boys 800m gold (2.19.4mins) and 200m bronze (26.4secs) as well as finishing 10th in the long jump (3.92m). Manon Edwards won U15s girls shot silver with a

personal best (7.70) as well as being sixth in the long jump (3.96) and eighth in the 75m hurdles (14.5secs). Melys Edwards claimed U13s girls 70m hurdles bronze (13.8) and also finished sixth in the 100m (15.4) and 12th in the long jump (3.60m). There was age group success for Gina Paletta and Linda Jones at the Chirk Castle 10k. Paletta, the fastest U20s woman, led Wrexham’s charge in

20th (40.55mins) and was followed by: 24 Geoff Richards (41.41); 25 David Rogers (41.47); 32 Charles Ashley (43.32); 101 Jones (51.58 – first W40); 102 Debbie Dodd (52.05); 178 John Tipping (75.22). Ashley was 18th (64.06) in the Llantysilio Mountain Race while Ian James was 10th (2.12.00hours) in the Rhayader Lakes 20 Mile Road Race.

Deano: Lack of strikers cost us Oxford United 1 Wrexham 0

DEAN Saunders admitted he will make it his number one priority to boost Wrexham’s firepower after a last-gasp strike from the Blue Square Premier’s leading marksman condemned them to a cruel defeat on Saturday.

Although a midweek draw effectively ended their play-off chances, the Dragons did not play like a team with nothing to play for in an entertaining clash. But their inability to translate their territorial dominance into goals came back to haunt them as, after goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen had to be replaced by centre-back Ashley Westwood between the posts, James Constable netted his 22nd of the season four minutes into injury-time to keep Oxford’s hopes of a top-five finish alive “First half was quite even but second half I thought we totally dominated and I just thought it was only a matter of time before we scored,” said boss Saunders, whose side have never recovered from the season-ending injury sustained by Marc Williams. “But you’re only as good as your strikers and we’re short in that department. I know

exactly what the problem is and I will resolve it.” How Wrexham could have done with Constable. The on-loan Shrewsbury Town man was the home team’s main threat in the opening period, heading wide and then forcing Nielsen to turn the ball over the bar. Sam Williamson then twice went close for the visitors, who, showing three changes to the side that were held by Histon, went on to dominate after the restart. John Curtis played a neat one-two with Ryan Flynn and shot just wide while substitute Obi Anoruo had an effort correctly ruled out for offside before the same player had a penalty shout for handball incorrectly turned down. And the Dragons’ luck took a turn for the worse in the 75th minute when Nielsen broke his thumb leaving captain Westwood, with no back-up keeper on the bench, to take over the gloves. Wrexham continued to push forward, however, and the tireless Flynn, who edged Andrew Crofts in the man of the match honours, missed a great opportunity to break the deadlock. And they were made to pay when Constable headed in the most dramatic of winners.

RUGBY UNION: Wrexham conceded 50 points for the second week in succession as they went down to a 59-0 North Wales League Division Two drubbing at Cobra on Saturday. Despite the return of lock Mike Jones and No 8 Mike McLeod, the Bryn Estyn Road outfit could not make up for the absence of skipper Guy Bingham and a lack of players with pace. Although they still hold on to fourth place, Wrexham are low in confidence and look as though they cannot wait for the season to end. Cobra opened smartly, keeping the ball alive and quickly outstripping the away side’s defence to lead 21-0 at the end of the first quarter. And they didn’t ease off in the next 20 minutes to turn round at half-time with a 42-point advantage. Wrexham, who hope to have Bingham back for Saturday’s trip to Rhyl (2.30pm), rallied after the restart with the introduction of a couple of young replacements and managed to restrict the hosts to only two more converted tries and a penalty. Coaches Ross Roberts and Dennis Weston came on as late replacements and used their vast experience to ensure that Wrexham mounted a strong finish even though they could not score. Wrexham Youth left it late but remained on track for their best finish to a season for two decades with a 22-12 home win over Caernarfon Youth in North Wales Youth League Division One on Saturday. Good work from stand-in scrum-half Owain Turner, hooker David Blackwell , centre Danny Sissons and fullback Ashley Dawson turned the game in Wrexham’s favour, with flanker Jake Edwards scoring a fine winning try which was converted by outside-half Jamie Morris, who then added his fifth successful penalty. A last-minute penalty meant Wrexham 2nds had to settle for a 34-34 home draw with Caernarfon 2nds in North Wales League Division Four. No 8 Keir Harding claimed a hat-trick of tries with flanker Dave Morris (2) and fullback Dave Thomas also going over for Wrexham, for whom scrum-half Mike Andrew capped an impressive individual display with two conversions.

Stars to shine on big stage Netball

SHOOTING STARS: St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

ROUNDUp Yet another horror show

A SCHOOL netball team are setting their sights on becoming the best in Wales after beating the best the region has to offer. St Mary’s Catholic Primary School will compete at the finals of the Urdd National Championships as a result of their North East Wales success. The shooting stars overcame schools from the Wrexham, Mold and Holywell areas to book their place at the Aberystwyth event next month. St Mary’s have also won the Wrexham Primary Schools Tournament and the Wrexham Large Schools League and, incredibly, have yet to lose a game all season.

GOLF:Dennis Murphy (82-19=63) was the convincing winner of Clays Golf Club’s Seniors April Medal. And his victory would have been even more emphatic had he not posted a six on the par-three 17th hole. Maelor Davies (82-17=65) won Division One from Colin Brown (83-17=66) and Tom Mara (94-28=66) Division Two from Joe White (94-27=67) and Terry Jackson (98-27=71), Clays Seniors bounced back from their heavy defeat to Hawarden Seniors with a 10-0 home trouncing of Eastham Lodge Seniors. Frank Rodenhurst, Matthew Lang and Neil Gledhill were the winners of the Club April Medal. Rodenhurst (75-7=68) won Division One from Phil Jones (78-8=70) and Michael Platt (75-4=71), Division Two went the way of Lang (83-12=71) from Greg McAteer (85-13=72) and Lawrence Highton (84-12=72), with Gledhill (92-22=70) topping Division Three from Paul Venn (92-22=70) and David W Parry (91-19=72). Stuart Rogers (35) won the following day’s Shop Stableford from Gledhill (33) and Gareth Roberts (33). Louis Gray (86-23=63) tasted Junior April Medal success as he left Alex Hansen (90-23=67) and Platt (71-4=67) trailing in his wake. Denise Bromley (89-18=71) won the Ladies April Medal from Kim Harcombe (87-12=75) and Pauline Peacock (108-30=78). Clays Ladies won their second match in the Mail on Sunday Classic Competition 3-2 at Wrexham.

Partridge maintains form

CYCLING: Following his victory in the 120km Daffodil Road Race in Cumbria, Rob Partridge has continued his rich vein of form. The 23-year-old from Cymau, the Welsh Road Race champion who is now a professional with Halfords Bikehut, came third in a field of 100 top UK riders in the 120km Tour Of The Reservoir in Northumberland. The race was won by his team-mate Andy Tennant, with Partridge just out-sprinted at the line for second place eight seconds later by Russell Downing of Candi TV-Pinarello.

SAUNDERS IS READY FOR REDS SHAKE-UP Football

Wrexham 0 Altrincham 1 DEAN Saunders emerged from a 45-minute post-match dressing room inquest to hint he is planning a major summer overhaul of his under-performing Dragons.

OFF YOU GO: Dragons defender Mansour Assoumani is red carded.

Wrexham’s depressing end to the campaign plumbed to new depths on Monday as they fell to a defeat, courtesy of Aurelien Collin’s 52nd-minute own goal, which officially ended their chances of reaching the Blue Square Premier play-offs. The reverse to the part-timers, for whom it was a first win in seven, means the Reds have won just two of their last 14 since they lost at champions-elect Burton Albion. Prior to that clash, the Dragons were touted as potential title dark horses after winning 11 and drawing four of Saunders’ first 16 games in charge. But their loss of form means they make the trip to Kettering Town on Saturday (3pm) in the no man’s land of 10th place. “The players have got to show more desire and get annoyed,” said Saunders, who rotated his mammoth squad yet again against Altrincham by making four changes to the team that lost 1-0 at Oxford United on Saturday. “Wayne Rooney gets annoyed if someone takes the ball off him and that’s what I want. Not everybody can be Rooney, but everybody can have his attitude. “In the summer, I have to get players in here like that. I’ve learned a lot about the league and I’m starting to think about things in different ways. “If we have a decent pre-season in which

FOUL PLAY: Wrexham striker Obi Anoruo is brought down on Monday. we have 12 to 15 games to teach the players, the ones who are going to stay here that is, they will come back wiser and stronger. “If I’m given the tools and everybody at the club is behind me and wants me to push the club forward, then I feel I can take the club in the right direction. “I never envisaged working at this level but I’ve got a feeling for the club, I’m Welsh and I’m trying as hard as anybody to get things right.” Goalkeeper Chris Maxwell, on his senior debut, Mansour Assoumani, before he was

harshly sent off late on for allegedly lashing out at Chris Denham, and Ryan Flynn were Wrexham’s better performers on a miserable afternoon at the Racecourse. Maxwell became the 45th player used by the Dragons this season after the on-loan Gunnar Nielsen broke his thumb at Oxford and returned to parent club Manchester City for treatment. Assoumani has been handed a three-match ban and so misses Kettering and Tuesday’s penultimate game of the campaign at Ebbsfleet United (7.45pm).

Round-up NEWI Cefn Druids suffered their second successive 1-0 Welsh Premier League loss on Monday at Airbus UK Broughton – but results elsewhere mean they can effectively start celebrating their safety.
