WREXHAM’S Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths, has welcomed a new pilot project in Wales aimed at helping families with disabled children claim the benefits they are entitled to. The AM was commenting on the £500,000 pilot scheme – funded by the National Assembly for Wales – which will look at the most effective ways of increasing household incomes of families with disabled children. The project will see Citizens Advice Cymru deliver the campaign to increase benefit uptake as part of its existing Wales-wide Better Advice Better Health initiative. Families with disabled children are much more likely to be in poverty because of the higher costs involved in bringing up a child with a disability. This is often exacerbated by a loss of income associated with either being a lone parent or, in two-parent families, the need in many cases for one of the parents to give up work. It is estimated 29,000 families with disabled children in Wales are not claiming the disability living allowance they are entitled to. This means 62% of those who are eligible are not claiming a potential £109.50 per week, the equivalent of more than £160m of lost benefit across all of Wales. Under the project, Citizens Advice Cymru will work closely with disability organisations to ensure that appropriate, expert advice is made available to families with disabled children. Families will be referred to the project in a number of ways, including through GPs, health visitors and social workers, specialist schools, integrated children’s centres, carers organisations and disability groups. Ms Griffiths said: “It is important that children with disabilities are given every opportunity in life to meet their full potential. “Hopefully, at the end of this pilot, more such families will be helped out of poverty.”

Children learn to grow their own WREXHAM’S youngsters are getting the gardening bug early – thanks to The Gardening Show, Llangollen, and Wales’s most famous son of the soil. Children aged from three to seven will be following in the footsteps of vegetable maestro Medwyn Williams in a grow your own project. They have been given a window box, compost and salad leaves to take home and grow with their families and the results will be part of Wrexham County Borough Council’s Early Education Team display at The Gardening Show at the Royal International Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7.

Medwyn, the only man to win 10 consecutive gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, said: “It’s good to catch them young. My father was a wise man and realised that because when I was about eight he gave me a square yard of his allotment and gave me a packet of mustard, radish and cress. “They were quick to grow and quick to harvest and it kept my interest in that magic thing that happens when you put a seed which looks dead into warm, moist soil. “If I can get the kids to get that same feeling of satisfaction I had then I have accomplished something.” Competition organiser Heather Petrie, of the Wrexham Early Education

Team, said: “We’re delighted to get involved again and have been really pleased with the response. “It’s part of our Growing Initiative but it’s also all about healthy eating and getting families interested in what they and their children eat and also in recycling. “Medwyn himself will be helping us with a workshop and plant surgery for teachers and supervisors. We had phenomenal interest in it last year – at least 500 children took part. “We asked Stephen Green of the Gardening Show if we could have a piece of land at the show site and he made some space available and we’re doing something similar this year.”

Margaret fulfils her dream A 79-YEAR-OLD resident at a Wrexham care home has had her dream of seeing a live wrestling match come true. Margaret Dunton, of Ashleigh Court care home in Wrexham, has always been an avid fan of wrestling but had never made it to a match. But her key worker, Christine Vernon, made arrangements for Margaret to attend a wrestling match at Llay Royal British Legion Club organised by Basix Wrestling. Christine accompanied Margaret to the match and arranged for her to

DELIGHTED: Margaret Dunton. go backstage to meet some of the wrestlers, who presented her with a bouquet of flowers along with signed pictures and photographs.

Margaret said: “I had a ball of a time at the match, it really was a dream come true, and I am very grateful to Christine for going out of her way to organise the outing and taking me along.” Home manager Sarah Morris said: “We endeavour to help all of our residents to fulfil their dreams and ambitions so when the opportunity cropped up to take Margaret to see the wrestling we jumped at it. “We also took one of our residents who is a football fanatic to see Wrexham play.”

Changes to bus services BUS passengers can benefit from service improvements. New, easy-access buses began running on the Rhyl-Denbigh-RuthinWrexham service on Saturday. Buses from Denbigh-Ruthin-Wrexham now operate hourly during the day and there is a new evening and Sunday service. Buses between Ruthin and Mold will

see additional journeys. Arrangements are in hand to ensure residents of Eryrys and Graianrhyd visiting Mold have appropriate return facilities. There are also changes to the RuthinCorwen service, which remains broadly hourly. It is hoped the changes will encourage more residents to use the buses.

MPs reveal their expenses claims Lucas: £22,000 to move house

Appeal for missing woman

Jones: £20,000 in four years on food

NORTH East Wales Labour MPs Martyn Jones and Ian Lucas have revealed their expenses to the Chronicle.

Clwyd South MP Martyn Jones released details of his expenses on Tuesday, showing he claimed almost £20,000 in four years for food. He submitted the maximum monthly claim of £400 a month under his second home allowances – including when the Commons was not sitting, for which he did not need to submit receipts. Mr Jones, who is retiring at the next election, spent nearly £20,000 between 2004/05 and 2007/08. His receipts also show he claimed for new furniture when he moved home in March 2006. He spent £348 on a washing machine, £390 on bathroom fittings, £199 on a chest of drawers, £72 on a toaster and £128 on a DVD. Mr Jones moved between rented flats minutes from each other in a Pimlico complex where residents can use the indoor swimming pool, outside riverside tennis court and croquet lawn. In November the following year he bought a second set of drawers costing £110, a £75 foam bed cover and a chocolate-coloured sofa bed costing £764. His latest rent claims show the apartment, a short walk from Parliament, costs £1,228 a month plus car rental of £165. A standard monthly claim included utility bills of £42, council tax of £83, phone costs of £40 and £17 on cleaning. In April last year the fees office rejected part of his claim because he had used up most of his Additional Costs Allowance of £23,083. His final submission for the financial year was reduced from £2,216 to £1,129. Mr Jones said: “Following the publication of Ian Lucas MP’s expenses, I have made the decision to release my expenses so as to avoid even the appearance of any wrongdoing. “Given the current feeling in the country on this issue it is right that I am as forthcoming as possible on this matter.”

CASH CLAIMS: North East Wales Labour MPs Ian Lucas and Martyn Jones have published their expenses. His colleague, Wrexham MP Ian Lucas, claimed more than £22,000 in expenses when he moved his second home. The politician claimed the cash when he moved about seven miles from a one bedroom flat in Rotherhithe, just south of the Thames, to one within walking distance of Westminster. Investigations revealed Mr Lucas claimed £6,245 for estate agent, solicitor and management fees, when selling his Rotherhithe flat in February 2007. The Labour whip then claimed £3,200 when staying at London hotels between April and July 2007, before he moved to his Westminster flat. He then claimed £12,755 for stamp duty, legal fees, and valuations – including on one property he did not go on to buy – in relation to the purchase of the Westminster flat. The total for the move was at least £22,200. Figures also revealed that in March 2005 he claimed £1,815 for new flooring for his flat in Rotherhithe. He claimed a further £1,388 for a bed, mattress and sofa bed, and £90 for a hotel in Cardiff in June 2007. Mr Lucas said: “I take my responsibilities as an MP extremely seriously. I have been

scrupulous about both adhering to the rules and ensuring good stewardship of public funds, mindful that it is taxpayers’ money. “It is right the rules are now changed, given some of the revelations of recent days. “In my own case, however, I am confident that I have achieved the appropriate balance between seeking the support I need to perform my duties, and responsible use of the allowances available to me. “Any claims I have made under the Additional Costs Allowance have been in relation to the need to either stay in London or maintain a property in London in order to perform my role as an MP. “This includes expenses in relation to the purchase and upkeep of a property in London.” He added: “It is true I have claimed £1,388 for furniture for my one bedroom flat in London. This was over a five-year period. I regard a bed as an essential item. “In relation to the hotel in Cardiff, I was attending the official opening of the National Assembly for Wales and considered this was part of my Parliamentary duties.”

Witnesses sought after cash robbery POLICE are hunting two men who threatened staff at a cash and carry before fleeing with money. Officers were called to the Booker Cash and Carry in Ru-

abon Road, Wrexham, just before 7.15am last Tuesday. Two men entered the premises and threatened two members of staff before running away with a minimal

amount of cash. Police are keen to speak to anyone who was in the Foxwood Drive area at about the time of the incident to call detectives at Wrexham on 0845

POLICE are appealing for help to trace a 57-year-old woman who has been missing from her home in Rhostyllen since Saturday. Lorraine Williams was last seen on Saturday night by her partner at the home they share in Holmwood Avenue. On Sunday morning he discovered Lorraine was not in the property and she has not been seen since. Police are also appealing to Lorraine to make contact with the police or her family to let them know she is safe and well. The missing woman’s full name is Margaret Lorraine Williams but she is known as LorLorraine Williams raine. She is described as being of medium build, between 5ft 1in and 5ft 4in tall and with a fair complexion. She has cropped ginger hair, blue eyes and wears glasses for reading. She may be wearing a grey fleece with a hood, black trousers and black shoes. Her disappearance is completely out of character and concerns are growing for her safety and whereabouts. Police are urging Lorraine to make contact with them by calling into a nearby police station or by calling 0845 6071002. Anyone who may have seen her is urged to call officers in Rhos on 0845 6071001 (Welsh line) or 0845 6071002 (English line).

A COMMUNITY has said “thank you” in the most practical way to a team of offenders who help keep their grounds tidy. The Caia Park Community Partnership in Wrexham has donated a petrol-driven motor mower to those involved in the Community Payback scheme run by the North Wales Probation Area. Under the scheme, offenders who are ordered by the courts to carry out unpaid work do a variety of jobs of direct benefit to their communities. They have worked on projects on the Caia Park estate with unpaid work supervisor Mike Clapham, who liaises closely with the community partnership. Though the council is responsible for most of the grassed areas on the estate, the partnership has its own substantial plots, which need almost constant attention. “We have been looking after the gardens

Pensioner was not killed by headbutt A TEENAGER from Gresford has seen a murder charge reduced to grievous bodily harm after medical experts ruled his headbutt did not kill a pensioner.

Retired antique dealer Alan Corney, 67, sustained a fractured cheekbone and developed a blood clot on the brain after being headbutted in front of his wife Norma on The Parade, Parkgate, on November 14. Mr Corney was walking home from the pub at about 9pm with his wife when he challenged the behaviour of two teenagers who were swearing drunkenly. He collapsed at home three weeks later and underwent brain surgery which left him in a coma until his death on February 6. Police launched a murder investigation after the former plant manager at Unilever, Port Sunlight, died. James Crawford, 18, of Claypit Lane, Gresford, was later arrested and first charged

with murder, then manslaughter. At Chester Crown Court on Monday, Crawford admitted butting Mr Corney, who had previously suffered two strokes and walked with a limp, saying it was in self-defence. A neuropathologist and a Home Office pathologist have now agreed the blow did not cause Mr Corney’s death. Weeks before the incident, Mr Corney had bought a house overlooking the marshes in Parkgate, after selling his Neston home to legendary Liverpool singer Gerry Marsden, and was looking forward to retirement. At a Press conference launching the murder investigation in February, son Michael broke down as he described his father as a “proud man with strong moral and family values”. He said: “We didn’t have the opportunity to say goodbye.” Crawford was remanded in custody until his trial on July 28.

Mold Crown Court was told Jeremy Stokes had followed Mark Griffiths from a Wrexham bar and punched him to the ground. He then kicked him in the face, stomach and back, and stamped on his head repeatedly, said prosecutor James Coutts. Mr Griffiths suffered abrasions. Stokes, unemployed, of Wynnstay Avenue, Wrexham, was jailed for a year. He admitted assault causing actual bodily harm on Mr Griffiths and harassing Laura Stokes. Defence barrister Phillip Tully said there were ongoing divorce proceedings. Mr Tully said Stokes had been upset by text messages from Mr Griffiths and attacked him “out of frustration”. He’d been drinking and was remorseful.

FLIGHTS FROM LIVERPOOL

PROTEST POINT: Campaigners outside the Plas y Wern bail house near Ruabon. THE dad of a girl who a convicted rapist tried to lure into a car, along with her friend, has demanded a change in the law. He wants a legal right to know if sex offenders are being housed at a Home Office-approved bail hostel on his doorstep. Patrick Brendan Smith, 44, also known as Reilly, is now locked up and awaiting sentence at Caernarfon Crown Court next month. Smith admitted trying to groom the girls, aged 12 and 13, for sex and offering to give them booze. He was previously jailed for twice raping a seven-year-old girl in 1998 and later grabbing a girl of 13 in Blackpool, demanding sex and threatening to kill her. Smith was staying at the Plas y Wern hostel in Plas Madoc on licence when he approached the two girls. The hostel, opposite a housing estate, is close to three schools and a leisure centre. Bosses had previously

Residents want the hostel re-categorised so it can’t take sex offenders. Following similar protests, the Home Office has drawn up a list of sensitive hostels close to schools or playgrounds. The girl’s father, who can’t be named for legal reasons, said: “I want a change in the law so parents would have a legal right to know if someone like that is living in our midst. “I can’t believe we did not know this man was allowed to stay there and wander around where there are lots of children.” He said if the hostel did not stop taking sex offenders, it should be closed down. “Half the people around here don’t know who the residents are but they are allowed to come to the leisure centre and the shops,” he added. “The children walk past the hostel to go to school. They should have a guard to keep control over those living there.

and problems and they are continuing for the family. “What happened was bad enough but what could have happened doesn't bear thinking about.” Campaigners staged a mass protest on Monday evening over the issue. A spokesman for North Wales Probation Area, which is reviewing arrangements for managing offenders, said: “We take this matter very seriously and we are continuing to review the arrangements for managing offenders as part of the ongoing process of strengthening the regime at Plas y Wern. “When Smith was released the other option, had he not been accommodated at Plas y Wern, would have been to allow him to live in the community, where there would have been less supervision. The fact that he was in the approved premises meant that, with close co-operation between the probation service and the police, he was apprehended and sent back to prison, for

Participants will also be given the chance to have their questions answered by a lymphoedema specialist. The second session, from 1-3pm, is a guide to cancer drugs. This informal session, led by an expert oncologist, will examine the five most common drugs used in the treatment of primary breast cancer.

Hijack bid fails to spoil cruise

A QUICK-THINKING engineer told how pirates were within seconds of hijacking a cruiser when he and his wife raised the alarm, forcing them to abort. Back from their adventure aboard the MSC Melody, David Wyn Rowlands and wife Beryl said they would happily go cruising again despite their brush with high seas piracy. The couple, from Bangor-onDee, were enjoying their trip on the vessel off the Seychelles earlier this month when armed pirates tried to take over the ship. The pair spotted a small boat using the ship’s wake as cover, trying to get close enough to board. Mr Rowlands dashed to raise the alarm as they started firing at the ship, shattering windows before motoring off, while his wife hurled a deckchair at them. Mr Rowlands, 62, said: “Beryl spotted what she thought was a boat in the ship’s wake. “I got my spectacles on and had a look. There appeared to be nobody on it, they must have been lying low or hiding. “They were about 30 seconds

would have been a crown jewel for them.” The cruiser continued on its way, leaving Mr and Mrs Rowlands to enjoy their holiday taking them to Jordan, Egypt and Naples. “We have been asked if it has put us off cruising – we would be quite happy to go on another,” said Mr Rowlands.

FEATHERED FRIENDS: Three-year-old Dylan Moss with hens Penny and Rosie at Rossett House Nursery. A PRESCHOOL nursery in Rossett has hatched up a cracking scheme to raise money for charity, while giving the children real-life nature lessons. Rossett House Nursery has extended its boundaries to accommodate three hens and a chicken coop. The eggs they lay are being sold to parents, to raise money toward the sponsorship of a three-year-old child in Zambia.

The hens, Rosie, Daisy and Penny, are huge favourites with the nursery’s under-fives, who help to feed and water them and collect their eggs every day. “Lots of children don’t realise where eggs come from, so we’re fortunate to have a rural location, with lots of space, so children can see the hens at first hand,” said managing director Peter Graham. “We’re also receiving reg-

ular reports from our friend Sunday, who we’re sponsoring in Zambia, so the children are very excited to hear about his home and his country.” He added: “We already have an outdoor role play village and a vegetable patch and our eggs-periment with hens has been such a success we’re planning to eggs-pand our outdoor play provision even further.”

A wiggly way to learn

Anger over grant delay

Lone woman assaulted

NORTH Wales AM Eleanor Burnham has spoken of her outrage that 2,610 students in post-16 education are still waiting for their education maintenance allowance due last September. The Welsh Liberal Democrat AM said: “Here we are eight months since the start of the academic year and more than 2,500 students have not received their education maintenance allowance. “This scheme was designed to provide a cash incentive to keep students from low-income families to remain in fulltime education. “It is essential that this backlog be dealt with as soon as possible to ensure that students remain in full-time education. Wales needs a skilled workforce to boost the economy.”

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman was assaulted in Wrexham. The incident happened at about 2am on Sunday, May 10, as the woman was walking alone from the town centre toward Caia Park. She was followed by a man as she walked from Crescent Road, Wrexham, to Montgomery Road, where she was assaulted. The 26-year-old woman managed to fight off her attacker, who fled. He is described as medium build, about 6ft tall and in his 20s and was wearing a black hooded top. Anyone with information should call DC Gareth Davies at Wrexham CID on 0845 6071002.

INTRIGUED: Recycling officer Catherine Knight introduces a wormery to pupils and staff at The Venture’s Flying Start nursery. NURSERY children in Wrexham got in touch with nature by putting together a wormery. The Venture’s Flying Start nursery wormery was put together with funding from the Tidy Towns Scheme.

The children, aged two and above, helped recycling officers Catherine Knight and Clair Evans to prepare the worms’ new home and gather leaves and leftover food waste to feed them.

A council spokeswoman said: “Wormeries really are a great way of reducing waste to landfill and are an eco-friendly way of disposing of unwanted food waste and a limited amount of garden waste.”

Players want fair deal

Fitness put to the test

‘Secret’ lottery grants

BINGO players in Wrexham are calling for a fair deal for bingo. More than 120 customers and employees at Mecca have written to Wrexham MP Ian Lucas asking for support in overturning the Government’s decision to raise bingo duty from 15% to 22%. Manager Bryan Tyrrell said: “It just doesn’t seem to be fair that someone can go to the bookies and place a bet and only pay 15% tax, whilst one of our customers has to pay 22%. “To our customers, this is about so much more than just bingo. For some, this is the only opportunity they have to socialise with other people.”

PUPILS put the fun factor into food and fitness at F-Factor festivals. The festivals, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, saw Year 5 primary school pupils tested on their ability to run, jump and stretch in fun but demanding tests to monitor fitness. Pupils of schools in the Llangollen and Corwen areas attended the event at Ysgol Dinas Bran, Llangollen, delivered by students from Glyndw ˆ r University. Project manager Richard Griffin said: “The pupils and university students put in a huge effort and thanks must go to teachers for getting youngsters to complete quite onerous questionnaires.”

Big Lottery Fund and Channel 4’s The Secret Millionaire have teamed up to give viewers a chance to act on the charitable inspiration fuelled by the show. Lottery funding worth £1m has been lined up to give away in grants of between £500 and £5,000 from the Secret Millionaire Fund. People can visit www.channel4.com/secretmillionaire to find out if their community group is eligible to apply, nominate a cause or actually apply. Successful applicants may then be selected for filming by Channel 4 and appear on the website or TV programme. Visitors to the website can also showcase their cause.

HELPING HAND: Zoe Nicholas, seven, and James Nichols, five, help to collect compost WREXHAM County Borough Council’s recycling officers have just celebrated the most successful Compost Awareness Week yet. Alyn Waters and Ty Mawr Country Parks both hosted Compost Giveaway events, allowing residents access to 40 tonnes of compost provided by Waste Recycling Group Ltd. Hundreds of Wrexham residents turned up with sacks and spades to take advantage of the free compost. The soil improver is the result of composting the garden waste collected via the Recycle with Michael Scheme. This is the first year all the compost has been taken away on the day. Recycling officer Maria Hughes said: “The two giveaway events have been the most popular yet. Many residents this year have explained how they are starting to have a go at growing their own vegetables for the first time. This may explain why the event was so popular.” Caroline Pollitt, the council’s newly appointed environmental education officer, was on hand to help visiting children make a newspaper seed pot. The pots were filled with some of the compost and a seed which could be planted in the garden once they returned home.

Television in dock over crime fears A POLICE watchdog blames popular television dramas such as The Bill for creating a false impression about crime rates in Wrexham and Flintshire.

She believes a lot of people have unfounded fears they are going to become victims of crime as a result of the murder and mayhem portrayed by officers in the fictional division of Sun Hill. Rhian Rees Roberts, a policy officer with North Wales Police Authority, said North Wales is actually one of the safest places in the UK. She added North Wales Police remains one of the best performing forces in England and Wales – and has the second highest detection rate in England and Wales. The police authority says the annual Policing Plan has been designed to provide reassurance to the people of North Wales. One of the main priorities is concentrating on

tackling serious and violent crime. Other priorities are ensuring the safety of children and young people, neighbourhood policing and dealing with alcohol-related crime. Ms Rees Roberts said: “Every year the police authority, along with the force, has a statutory duty to draft the annual policing plan outlining the priorities for the police authority and the force for the coming year. “Following consultation with members of the public, the priorities contained in the policing plan have been selected because they are the things of most importance to people living in the area. “We hold community forums across North Wales and we asked people for their opinions and what they’d like to see as priorities for this year. Anti-social behaviour featured quite highly on the list of priorities, as did alcohol related crime as well as ensuring the safety of children and young people. “We also commissioned a survey called Llais y Gogledd (The Voice of North Wales) and people were given the opportunity to say what their priorities were in relation to policing. One of the messages that came through loud and clear from the people of North Wales was that they want an emphasis on dealing with serious and violent crime. “We are fortunate in North Wales in that we live in a beautiful and safe place compared to lots of other areas in the UK.”

REAL LIFE: Rhian Rees Roberts, right, has criticised TV programmes including The Bill.

Role of carers recognised A QUESTION and answer session with a panel of experts is one of the events planned for carers in Wrexham as part of National Carers Week. Carers Week, which runs from June 8-14, aims to highlight and celebrate the incredible contribution carers make, sharing the positive experiences as well as the more difficult. It is estimated six million people across the UK provide unpaid care to

someone they know. Highlights from the week will include a session where carers and members of the public will be able to put their questions forward to a panel of experts at Capel y Groes on Friday, June 12, from 11am-1pm. Questions can be submitted beforehand by emailing carers@avow.org or calling 01978 318812. Other highlights include several carers drop-in meetings throughout the week; the first at Wrexham Lib-

rary on Monday, June 8, from 10am-noon. Other activities including a family picnic at Ty Mawr County Park on Saturday, June 13. Andrew Figiel, chief social care officer for Wrexham County Borough Council, said: “Carers are often the unsung heroes with their fantastic work going unnoticed. They are truly indispensable.” ■ For full details, visit www.avow.org or telephone 01978 318812.

Village competition

Tracking reptiles

VILLAGES across Wales with a population of 5,000 and under are being called to action as the deadline for entries to the 2009 Calor Village of the Year for Wales contest approaches. The closing date for entries is Friday, May 29, and, with an increased prize fund of £15,000 on offer, the incentive for communities to take part has never been greater. One winner for Wales will be awarded a minimum of £9,000, which can then be invested into community projects. Last year Froncysyllte, near Wrexham, won the contest. To enter, download a form at www.calorvillageoftheyear.org or call Brian Challis on 01962 629768. Calor Village of the Year manager Suzanne Weir said: “Just taking part can be of enormous benefit to villages – it offers them a chance to ‘health check’ their community by putting down on paper what they do well, what they could do better and what they offer to both residents and visitors.”

NORTH East Wales Wildlife (NEWW) is running a free training course on reptile identification, ecology and survey techniques this weekend. NEWW has received funding from the Countryside Council for the training, to teach people about their native reptiles and help with surveys and collecting records to determine the distribution of reptiles such as grass snakes and common lizards in the area. The free course takes place on Saturday, May 23, at Rhydymwyn Valley Nature Reserve, near Mold. If you would like to take part, telephone the community wildlife education officer on 01352 742115 or email cweo@ newwildlife. A common lizard org.uk.

THE Clwyd Coeliac Group is asking local restaurants to offer gluten-free dishes on their menus to support Coeliac UK’s Free for Tea campaign. Coeliac UK, the national charity supporting people with coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), is highlighting the problem faced by many people who know going out for a meal could be a serious threat to their health due to the misconceptions surrounding gluten intolerance and ignorance about what gluten-free really means. Coeliac disease is not an allergy, it is an autoimmune disease caused by intolerance to gluten, which causes inflammation in the lining of the small intestine. There is no cure or medication for the disease and the only treatment is to follow a strict gluten-free diet. Without a gluten-free diet the disease can lead to other conditions such as osteoporosis, infertility or bowel cancer. If someone with coeliac disease accidentally eats gluten they are likely to be unwell within a few hours. The symptoms can often be very aggressive and can include severe diarrhoea and vomiting, which can last for several days. There are many people living within the group’s catchment area, which includes Wrexham, for whom enjoying a meal out is simply not an option. We would like to encourage all local restaurants to offer gluten-free dishes on their menus. Not only will they be doing a great service to the community, I think they may be surprised by the positive impact it will have on their business and turnover. If any restaurant managers or chefs would like to discuss gluten-free food or dishes that could be suitable then I would be only too happy to welcome the opportunity. Gluten is a protein found in wheat (including spelt), rye and barley. The most obvious sources are breads, pasta, flours, cereals, cakes, biscuits and beer. However, it can also be found in a wide range of products, including soy sauce, sausages, sauces, stock cubes, gravy granules and mayonnaise, to

Policy needed to protect on green spaces AS AN active playing field campaigner, I must congratulate Wrexham councillors David Bithell (Johnstown) and Mark Pritchard (Esclusham) for submitting a motion for Wrexham council’s consideration to introduce a policy on public, recreational and informal open space which identifies deficits in provision on a ward by ward basis. I know that in my own particular community (Acton) we now have an acknowledged deficit of more than 75 acres of outdoor sports fields/playing fields and I am acutely aware that this is not an isolated case. name a few.

We need to know county expenses

I HAVE written to the leader of Wrexham County Borough Council requesting that the allowances and expenses of councillors be made available to the public on the Wrexham CBC internet website. I have also asked for the names of the chief officers responsible for each department to be published on the web. It is important local government is open to the same scrutiny as the national Government and I believe our electors are entitled to know the cost of their elected representatives and also the names of the chief officers who take decisions on their behalf. HUGH JONES County borough councillor, Rossett ward,

PRAISE: David Bithell and Mark Pritchard. Maybe if we could achieve a clear and transparent policy, it would provide greater protection for our much needed and valued green spaces and hopefully it would stop the constant attempts to sell them off piece by piece.

VIEW FROM

WESTMINSTER Clwyd Clwyd South South MP MP Martyn Martyn Jones Jones acclaimed brand names back to its former glory. As I begin to think about leaving office there is one thought more prevalent in my mind than ever and that is the continuing need for a Labour Government. I think I would be the first to admit that over the past years we have not got everything right. However, the difference between the current Conservative and Labour parties could not be more different. One party fights to increase corporate profits and fund businesses, the other works to help real people struggling at the deepest end of the recession. At the last budget 15,775 children in Clwyd South benefited

from this Government’s increase in child tax credit from 2010 and 15,010 pensioners in our constituency benefited from an increase in the winter fuel allowance. The alternative is Conservative proposals that would cut £240m from council’s budgets (leading to an increase in your council tax), cut £160m from the Home Office budget (equivalent to the loss of 3,500 police officers) and cut £80m from the DECC budget (equivalent to cutting the Warm Fronts scheme for 32,000 homes). When I protested with so many of you against Mrs Thatcher’s regime of corporate greed and personal wealth for the richest 1% of our country it was my belief that a Labour Government should fight for those people who struggle to make ends meet, continue to fight for jobs and pensioners’ rights, always work for public schools and public hospitals and help those least fortunate in society. It was those principles that attracted me to the Labour Party almost 32 years ago and I still believe in them strongly today.

PUBLIC anger over some MPs’ expense claims shows no sign of subsiding and their reaction is wholly understandable. At a time when many face economical hardship and the threat of redundancy it’s more than galling to find MPs have spent thousands on mock-Tudor beams, bath plugs, gin and having a moat around a country pile cleaned. However, as public trust in politicians continues to evaporate and heads toward a constitutional crisis perhaps it’s time we took a step back and reassessed things. There can be no denying many claims are at best frivolous and at worst dishonest, despite the continued insistence of many in Westminster that their claims were within the rules. Let us also remember that the majority of MPs, on all sides, are hard-working and are not morally bereft. We have to accept an MP whose constituency is many miles from London needs to have accommodation near the House of Commons. And it’s only right and fair the MP concerned gets some financial help toward the cost of a second home. After all, we do not want to go back to a time when only the rich sat as MPs. Secondly, and even more importantly, we must not allow the issue of expenses, and our justified anger over some of the claims to cloud our long-term judgment. We have important European elections just around the corner. The shame we feel over what some of our MPs have claimed is nothing compared with the national shame of a BNP MEP representing our nation in Brussels.

Man and daughters kidnapped his ex-partner A FATHER who kidnapped his ex-partner on St Valentine’s Day after she left him for another man has been jailed for 18 months. Mold Crown Court heard 43-year-old Sharon O’Neill’s year-long affair with a colleague at a supermarket had been discovered by one of her daughters. On February 14 David Walker, 45, and the daughters Kelly O’Neill, 25, and Chelsea O’Neill, 20, travelled to a house in Ruabon, near Wrexham, where Sharon O’Neill was staying with her new love. The prosecution said the mum and Michael Glover had left their families four days earlier. Prosecutor Karen Mullin said: “Mr Walker told her she was going back to Liverpool with them. During this time Miss O’Neill was punched to the face by Kelly O’Neill. She was cut and had a lump under her left eye.” The mother, who was wearing her pyjamas, feared for the safety of

Mr Glover. She left the house and sat in the front passenger seat of her car with Chelsea in the back. She tried to escape but was dragged back by Walker. They arrived in Liverpool just after midnight. Police arrested Walker and the daughters at their Liverpool homes later that night. Defence barrister Jonathan Duffy, for Walker, of Rupert Drive, Everton, who admitted kidnap, said he’d been in a 27-year relationship. “It was a desperate blow to find out in the circumstances that he did that his partner regarded the relationship as being over,” he said. Kelly O’Neill, of Genista Close, Liverpool, admitted criminal damage to a window and common assault. Chelsea O’Neill, also of Rupert Drive, pleaded guilty to burglary after stealing a mobile phone and criminal damage to a picture and frame. The judge imposed 12week suspended custodial terms on the sisters.

Shop forced to close THE Nightingale House Hospice charity shop in Cefn Mawr will be closed for about three weeks. It had been planned to close the shop in the summer to allow remedial building work to be undertaken following a water leak, however, following a reassessment of the problem, it has now been deemed necessary to bring that work forward. During this period of closure, which began on May 13, the hospice is asking anyone who has items of clothing, bric-a-brac or furniture to donate to call the hospice distribution centre on 01978 262589 to make arrangements for its collection. The Cefn Mawr shop is one of four successful local charity shops in the area run by the hospice. Its other shops are in Buckley, Rhos and Brook Street in Wrexham, and it also runs a furniture shop in Rhos and has a distribution centre in Rhosnesni Lane. The hospice has recently appointed two part-time managers to help run its shops.

Firm backs theatre play DIVORCE lawyers from one of Wrexham’s oldest law firms witnessed an unusually complex set of marital relationships when they went to see a play being sponsored by the firm at the town’s Grove Park Theatre. GHP Legal, which until recently was known as Gwilym Hughes and Partners, is a long-time supporters of the theatre and has several amateur actors on its staff who have performed there. This latest sponsored production, a wickedly entertaining farce by Alan Ayckbourn entitled How the other Half Loves, centres on the complex relationships of three married couples whose hanky panky exceeds anything many divorce lawyers might see in a lifetime. The play runs until Saturday. In a setting as complex as their relationships, the six characters frolic their way through love and laughter, lies and liaisons, passion and panic in this play from England’s most admired comic playwright. Peter Butler, managing partner of GHP Legal, said: “This play is a classic and the performance was wonderfully executed. GHP Legal is delighted to be sponsoring the staging of it, especially since it means we are supporting the town’s

Family want more answers over woman’s death THE family of a woman who died of heart failure say they have been left with unanswered questions. Rosalyn Mary Chesters, 71, of Heol Hyfryd, Gwersyllt, was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital on September 24 last year after suffering a heart attack. She never regained consciousness and died three days later.

Alison Evans described her mother as a very family-oriented person. She said: “Her life centred around her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.” Mrs Evans told the inquest she believed the prescription of an antibiotic drug which her mother was allergic to may have contributed to her death.

because she was coughing up blood and he prescribed her with an antibiotic. “Within 10 minutes of taking it she was itching and couldn’t breathe. “My dad went to get the leaflet which came with the tablets and when he turned around she had collapsed.” Mrs Chesters had suffered an allergic reaction to the antibiotic a year or two

The post-mortem examination showed evidence of heart failure but blood tests showed no proof Mrs Chesters had suffered an allergic reaction. North East Wales coroner John Gittins said this could be because the postmortem examination took place some time after she had taken the antibiotic. He recorded a verdict of death by nat-

A WREXHAM school’s autism unit has been hailed as a model of good practice by Plaid Cymru AM Janet Ryder, who chairs the Assembly’s cross-party group on autism. The Plaid Cymru AM was visiting the communications centre at Darland School in Rossett, where she met pupils and staff, including the centre’s head, Enid Moore. The centre enables pupils to stay in mainstream edu-

cation and attend lessons while also providing additional support when necessary. Ms Ryder said: “Enid Moore and her team have created a fantastic learning environment for the pupils here. “I was so impressed by the pupils’ abilities in a number of fields as well as their charm and courtesy. They really are a credit to their parents and the school. “This type of dedicated

centre means that staff are able to develop many of the talents that many pupils on the autism spectrum have. “Pupils here showed incredible creativity and some will be going on to do further education courses in their chosen fields.” During her visit she was given a demonstration of how alternative methods are used to develop the pupils’ skills, such as using a Japanese abacus called a soroban.

Partnership bid to reduce road deaths NORTH Wales Police is the first force in the UK to adopt an initiative with the AA, aimed at tackling teenage road deaths. The force has teamed up with the AA Charitable Trust to reduce casualties in a scheme that will see at-risk drivers targeted with free driver safety training. Funded by the AA and developed specifically to help new drivers, the ‘Drive Smart’ scheme involves two-hour sessions with a qualified instructor from the AA Driving School. The initiative, which has the support of transport ministers, focuses on improving safety as

well as ‘eco-driving’ techniques to cut fuel consumption. Police will approach young drivers with a history of collisions or offences such as driving without seat belts, using mobile phones while driving and speeding to nominate them for training. If they decide to participate in the course, a supporting workbook will be sent and they will be expected to practise between sessions to get the most out of their training. Assistant Chief Constable Ian Shannon said: “Young drivers, particularly those with a poor

driving record, are at most risk of being involved in a collision in which someone will die or be seriously injured. “By targeting training at the right people, we will save lives.” The charity’s director, AA president Edmund King, said: “Driving causes more teenage deaths than stabbings or drugs, with new drivers and their passengers accounting for one-in-five car deaths. “By working with police to target those who are the biggest risk we can start to tackle this carnage.”

Cycle ride to Paris

Staff get time off

A CHILDREN’S charity is seeking volunteers from Wrexham to cycle from London to Paris. During the five-day event fundraisers will be cycling through English villages and rural France on their way to Paris. Ceri Ward of Children Today said: “The sponsorship monies you raise from this exhilarating adventure will go toward purchasing specially adapted, life-changing pieces of equipment for disabled children and young people throughout the UK.” The event takes place from September 9-13. All participants must be aged 18 or over. For an information pack, call 01244 335 622 or email ceri@childrentoday.org.uk.

FOOD giant Kellogg’s has urged firms to follow its example and give staff Friday afternoons off in the summer to boost workers’ morale. The company, which has a factory at Wrexham, will give the 660 workers at its Manchester head office the chance to finish work at noon on Fridays – if they’ve completed their 36.6-hour week. The scheme, first piloted six years ago, will run from May to September after company research showed it helped improve motivation. A spokeswoman did not say if the scheme will be open to 400-plus staff at Wrexham.

New dad’s triathlon challenge

MAKING WAVES: Rossett resident Matthew Bennett before he set off on his triathlon.

A ROSSETT man swam 12 miles across the Straits of Gibraltar to start off his epic 1,500 mile triathlon across Europe. Father-of-two Matthew Bennett is taking part in the Suck it Up Challenge in aid of the Prostate Cancer charity. He was motivated to take part after his own father Martin was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer three years ago. Former semi-professional rugby player Matthew acknowledges this was a difficult time for him to leave his family as his wife Anne gave birth to their second daughter about a month ago, but she fully supports what he is doing. His swim across the busy shipping lane started at 6.30am on May 1, and took him five hours and 28 minutes to complete – the longest distance he’s ever swum. He is currently a week into the 1,400-mile cycle through France and Spain, which he will follow with the long run from London to the North West of England toward the end of the month. Matthew said: “I chose this challenge in particular as I wanted to capture the imaginations of as many people as possible. “With the long distance cycle and the open water swim, I’m taking on activities that are very new to me and which, in the case of the swim, filled me with great apprehension. “But I felt that for people to get behind me I really needed to make this a difficult personal challenge.” Prostate cancer affects 35,000 men a year in the UK and one man dies from the disease every hour. ■ For more details or to support Matthew, visit www.prostate-cancer.org.

PASSIONATE: Ian McEwan’s award-winning opera For You comes to Mold this summer. THE Music Theatre Wales (MTW) production of composer Michael Berkeley and novelist Ian McEwan’s passionate opera For You was the talk of the town when it premiered at the Royal Opera House last autumn.

A brilliant composer and compulsive womaniser meets his match in his besotted housekeeper – and tragedy ensues. Three new singers join the cast for the summer tour: Baritone Nicholas Folwell as the preening composer/ conductor Charles Frieth, mezzo Arlene Rolph as his scheming Polish housekeeper Maria, and South Walesbased soprano Gail Pearson as Charles’s long-suffering wife Antonia.

Tenor Christopher Lemmings plays Charles’s harassed assistant, baritone Jeremy Huw Williams is a consultant with a less-than-ethical concern for his patient and soprano Rachel Nicholls appears as a nubile French horn player.

Leave them all at sea this half term

Join the Robot Revolution!

THIS half term, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford invites all children over the age of five to join in a free and exciting activity in which they and their friends will become active participants in an air sea rescue and discover how the Royal Air Force mounts such operations in hazardous conditions.

ROBOTS have infiltrated all our lives – from the cars we drive to the food we cook, robots are all around us.

In each session, children will be able to experience what it is really like to be marooned in a life raft and will learn various survival techniques, in the raft, with their fellow

crew members. Sessions will be held from May 2629, at 11am, noon, 2pm and 3pm each day and last about 30 minutes. Anyone interested should report to the admissions desk, in the Visitor Centre, 10 minutes before each session to avoid disappointment. Younger children will need to be accompanied by an adult but are welcome to participate in this experience. The museum is open daily from 10am to 6pm, with last admission 5pm. Entry to the event and to the rest of the museum site is FREE. Parking is also FREE. ● For details, call 01902 376200 or visit www.rafmuseum.org.

Whether taking our minds off tedious tasks or looking deep in to space for alien life – robots can make the impossible, possible. This half-term, join the Robot Revolution at Techniquest Glyndwr with a week of special events and activities about the amazing world of robots. How simple is a robot? What makes a human different from a robot? Less than you’d think. Get involved with Robot Thought, an interactive experiment to decide what a robot actually is (or isn’t!). A great thought-provoking journey of discovery. Are you up for a challenge? Get hands-on and create your very own wiggling, jiggling drawing machine – a DrawBot! This simple robot creation can be customised with your own colours and design. Kids of all ages will enjoying watching their DrawBot as it produces artistic masterpieces before your very eyes - all you need do is frame it! The revolution continues with a host of other activities including BugBots – an example of a Braitenberg vehicle. This ‘thoughtful’ machine mimics the actions of simple animals. There is a chance to build a BugBot and watch as it reacts to items placed around it by seeming to move out of their way. Meet the experts. On selected dates during Robot Revolution, TQG will also host talks and workshops by distinguished experts in the filed of robotics. ● For more details, visitwww.tqg.org.uk.

Monthly medal magic for president Hudson CLAYS Golf Club president Roger Hudson was a winner in the Seniors May Medal. Hudson (94-24=70) topped Division Two from Reg Peacock (91-19=72) and Joe White (100-27=73). Nigel Moore (85-16=79) won Division One from Michael Carding (83-13=70) and Tony Jackson (85-15=70). The Seniors Yellow Ball Competition

Golf went the way of Maelor Davies, Terry Jackson, Rodney Evans and Cliff Davies (162). Clays’ annual away day match for past captains and presidents, organised by director Wyn Williams, was this year held at Frodsham Golf Club.

(35) won the match from Ray Martin (34) and Mike Griffiths (34), who claimed the nearest the pin prize. Michael Platt (71-5=66) was the winner of the JCB Qualifier back at Clays. He was two shots too good for Andy Brown (93-25=68) and Paul Wyn Jones (84-16=68). Paul Venn (41) edged out Michael Byrne (40) and Pauline Peacock (40) to win the Shop Sunday

Stableford. Janet Johnson (31) won the May Ladies Midweek Stableford. ■ Beth Davies tasted Denbighshire & Flintshire Ladies County Championship final defeat to the player who she beat in last year’s showpiece. The 19-year-old Mold Golf Club member lost 2&1 to Wrexham Golf Club’s 14-year-old Chloe Williams at the Old Padeswood Golf Club event.

ROUNDup Brymbo’s wait goes on

CRICKET: Brymbo’s winless start to the North Wales League Premier Division continues after they suffered a 95-run reverse at Connah’s Quay on Saturday. Dafydd Rhys’ side were always going to be up against it after the Quay, led by captain fantastic Martin Burger (124no), cracked 231-4dec. Only the excellent Joss Roberts (83) then showed resistance as Brymbo were bowled out for 136. High-flying Chirk had their match rained off at Bethesda, who had declared on 153-7. Marchwiel & Wrexham slipped 24 points behind early Division One leaders Llay Welfare after bad weather meant they had to settle for a losing draw at St Asaph. David Ward (3-34) and Darren Bettis (3-41) ensured the Saints could get no further than 161-8dec before a heavy downpour cut second-placed Marchwiel short on 110-3, with George Forgrave (36no) and Andrew Glover (21no) well placed after good work from opener Michael Forgrave (31). Llay had a walkover after visitors Llangollen conceded the derby clash. Gresford were beaten by eight wickets at Llandudno 2nds, who cruised to 150-2 after snaffling the Clappers Lane outfit up for 149, a total that would have been worse had it not been for opener John Bell (54). A brilliant knock from Simon Brooman swept Division Three table toppers Castell Alun to a 14-run success at Hawarden Park 2nds. Brooman’s unbeaten 90 hauled Alun up to 170-3 before Hawarden were halted on 156. Marchwiel & Wrexham 2nds tasted their first defeat of the season in a rain-effected game against Pontblyddyn 2nds, who put on 161-2 before seeing their hosts, led by David Jones (40no), get as far as 123-5. Gwersyllt Park were eight-wicket winners at home to Llanrwst 2nds, who set 104-8 before Park powered to 105-2. Brymbo 3rds lost by two wickets to Buckley, who just reached 121-8 (Wayne Smith 4-26, Russell Penrhyn-Jones 2-24, Robert Ward 2-30) having dismissed their visitors for 120 (Penrhyn-Jones 39no, Charlie Croasdale 24). Gresford 2nds maintained their flying start to Division Five with a 115-run home romp over Dolgellau 2nds. The Gwynedd outfit were ripped apart for 72 (Ross Willetts 5-19) after Gresford posted 187-5 thanks to Ian Weaver’s 84no and 46 from Fakhre Ali. Bersham 2nds got off the mark with a five-wicket win at Pwllheli 2nds, who made 103-8 (Jerry Wellans 2-12, Steve Kreczman 2-18, Bryan Walker 2-26) before Bersham replied with 104-5 (John Mann 26, Daniel Williams 24). Every other match involving Wrexham teams were washed out with a ball being bowled.

RUGBY UNION: Wrexham Under 9s acquitted themselves well over four games against stiff opposition at the Llandudno Mini Rugby Tournament – but just missed out on a passage into the finals by one try on a countback. Despite performing well in their opening contest against Nant Conwy, Wrexham fell to a 4-0 defeat having been unable to break down a solid defence. Their second outing was a fiercely-fought affair against Pwllheli with some tough tackling, which ended in a 1-1 draw with Rhys Pomeroy claiming Wrexham’s try. Two touchdowns from Pomeroy and a Sam Rogers effort then gave the future Bryn Estyn Road stars a deserved 3-1 victory over Denbigh. Stepping up a gear in their final match, Wrexham defeated Ruthin by 2-0 with tries from Rogers and man-of-the-tournament William Mills. However, they needed a couple more scores to progress beyond their pool.

Fellow Cymru Alliance outfit Mynydd Isa paid the penalty against the Lawmen as last Tuesday’s showpiece showdown, staged at Wrexham FC’s famous Racecourse Ground, finished 2-2 before being settled 4-2 on spot-kicks. After enjoying Welsh National Premier Division success as boss of Brymbo, Parry is delighted to have proved himself at a higher level. “I’m very pleased,” he said. “We won the league with Brymbo two years on the run and we won the Welsh Trophy. I won six trophies in two seasons there but they had no ambition

to go up to the Cymru Alliance, so when the offer came from Lex, I took it.” He brought his entire Brymbo playing staff with him to Stansty Park, but did he expect them to make the grade? “Yes, I did actually,” said Parry. “They were always good enough to play in this league. I always knew we would compete, but where we finished and what we won? No. I’m immensely proud.” Captain Craig Hughes put Lex ahead in the fifth minute in the final but Isa equalised 12 minutes later before going in front 10 minutes before the break. But with Nathan Evans controlling midfield and Mick Santangelli and Gareth Roberts lively up front, it was no surprise when Parry’s men levelled the contest shortly into

the second half when Santangelli fired in. Extra-time could not separate the sides and so it was to penalties, in which the heroics of goalkeeper Daniel Billington and the precision of Aaron Aby, Roberts, Mike Latham and Aaron Edwards ensured it was Lex who were celebrating come the end of the epic encounter. Lex’s long-serving secretary Margaret Morris said: “It was great to finish on a high. It really was a wonderful end to the season for everybody.” Morris, who has been involved with the club for nearly 15 years, was delighted to banish memories of 2001’s final defeat to Buckley Town. “I was there when we got beat by Buckley and I remember how that felt,” she said. “Most of our committee have been there since the onset, so you can imagine how we feel now.” After the final euphoria,

plans now turn to raising the finances so Lex can compete in next season’s Cymru Alliance. The club has not had a main sponsor for a number of years and the secretary said: “If there is anyone out there who would like to get involved with a decent club with a decent history and a fantastic ground, then we’d like to hear from them. “We just need any kind of sponsorship to keep the club going because we wouldn’t like to see it fold. “Colin came to us at the beginning of the season and what a wonderful season for him. We are very, very fortunate. He is such a gentleman and an absolute asset to the club.” ■ Lex XI hold an end-of-season presentation night on Saturday at the Gresford Colliery Social Club, with entertainment in the form of local band Phoenix and a disco. Tickets are £5 each and are available by calling Colin Parry on 07515893459.

Premiership opposition for pre-season WREXHAM are in talks to play a trio of Premier League outfits in pre-season friendlies. Dragons boss Dean Saunders is in negotiations to take on mega-rich Manchester City, Stoke City and newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers in the build-up to the

2009-10 Blue Square Premier campaign. Definitely on their way to the Racecourse are Championship duo Coventry City and Preston North End. Coventry, managed by former Wales international Chris Coleman, will come to town on Saturday, July 11 (3pm)

and have agreed to donate their fee from the match to Wrexham’s highly-successful Centre of Excellence. Preston, who missed promotion to the top flight with play-off defeat to Sheffield United, will visit the home of the Dragons on Tuesday, July 21 (7.30pm).

The clash with the Lilywhites will be a special one for Nathan Fairhurst, the 19-yearold who late last week turned down a new contract with Preston to sign a one-year deal with Wrexham, having impressed Saunders on loan last season. Saunders has also

agreed a one-year incentive-based contract with former Hibs winger Jamie McCluskey, the 21-year-old who joined the Dragons at the turn of the year after a lengthy break from the game because of injury, but he is waiting on striker Matt Jansen to decide his future.
