The Champion • Wednesday 18 December 2013The presentation of the potentially life saving defibrillator at Crossens Bowling Club.Life saving defib forbowling club in memoryof big band drummer RegReport by Ollie CowanA LIFE saving defibrillator has been placed atCrossens Bowling Club by Southport charityHeart4Heart who, in memory of big banddrummer Reg Howard, are fundraising toplace potentially lifesaving defibrillatorsacross the town.The defibrillator was purchased following aseries of fundraising events.Reg, a well known member of the Southportcommunity, lost his life following a cardiacarrest which he suffered at home in August2012.His family and friends, determined to keep hismemory alive, developed the Heart4Heartcampaign.They originally began fundraising to providea defibrillator at Fleetwood Hesketh Club, butthe response from the community has been sogreat that they have now progressed –resulting in four defibrillators being purchasedfor the resort.Training on CPR and how to use thedefibrillator was also held by North WestAmbulance Service for members of CrossensBowling ClubIt is proven that intervention during the firstfew minutes of cardiac arrest is vital, and nowtrained members of the community will be onhand to give immediate help to anyone whosuffers a cardiac arrest. The machines giveverbal instructions and tell you where to placepatches on the patient’s chest.They read the patient’s heart rate and, only ifneeded, will deliver a shock to re–start theheart.Pauline Howard, Reg’s wife said: “We are sopleased to be able to locate a defibrillator inCrossens and it is nice to know that it will belocated in the bowling club.“The community support for our campaignhas been phenomenal, and is growing all of thetime.“Reg would be very proud of the way family,friends and our local community havesupported Heart4Heart and I only hope thattogether, we can make a difference and save alife.”SFinest Quality English MeatsEEC Approved 4823Traceability on all our productsBARTONBARTONPHILIPBUTCHERSEst 1947Quality is our nameSuppliersto Hotels & RestaurantsTel 01704 227216FREE HOMEDELIVERYEst 1947PHILIP BARTONBUTCHERSFresh Range TurkeysBronze or WhiteBoneless Turkey Crownswith Streaky BaconCelebrateNew Yearwith our28 dayBritish AgedSteakSirloin · Rump · FilletWhole Fillet of BeefavailableQuality is our nameLarge selection ofHome MadeSausages& ChipolatasPork & CranberryPork & StiltonVenisonVenison &Black PuddingSausage MeatCraigALL MAJOR CARDS TAKENVisit us @ www.ChampNews.com • 11Old Park Lane, Southport PR9 7BTTel 01704 227216Free Forecourt ParkingOPENMonday-Friday · 8am-5pmSaturday · 8am-4pmFREE HOME DELIVERYERYGaryOPEN EVERY DAYUNTIL CHRISTMAS— including —Sunday 22nd DecemberFind us on112527111249681124968


12 • Visit us @ www.ChampNews.com SF The Champion • Wednesday 18 December 2013Cars and lorriesallowed to speedwhile pupils aregoing to schoolI have complained to Merseyside Policethree times now regarding Stamford Road,Southport where lorries, vans and cars oftenwell over 30mph even when pupils are goingin and out of Christ the King High School.Also on Bedford Road, Kew Road,Lyndhurst Road and Clifford Road, evenresidents in those roads drive at 30mph andover!If the authorities are not going to ‘police’these newly implemented speed zones, thenthe money spent in erecting poles andplacing speed limit signs is totally wasted.The council are all too quick to fleece themotorist for parking minutes over theparking time – easy pickings.We may feel the new limits are needless,but they will reduce injury and extent ofdamage caused in a crash whether werecognise that fact or not.Name supplied,SouthportThank you forhelp, kind peopleI would just like to say thank you to the threepeople who came to my husband’s aid after hesuffered a diabetic attack.A taxi driver and two other people helped himand I want to recognise their kindness.Name supplied, Freshfields.Sefton Council should besplit up into three ‘minimetropolitan authorities’Doing nothing about the state of localgovernance in Sefton is not an option.Ever since it was created in 1974, Sefton hasnever been a happy council; party politics havecombined with the politics of geography tocreate a toxic cocktail, which has corrodedlocal government here.As far back as 1997, a Local GovernmentCommission report observed that “The level ofdiscontent does not suggest that Sefton is anauthority at one with itself.”Ideally local government should be run as alocal business.There would be a small board of electeddecision–makers with a detailed knowledge oftheir community and a head for business andmoney, buying in services from the privatesector as required.They would oversee a small but adaptableworkforce who have a commitment to the areaand to the residents, who in turn take an activeinterest in local politics.I am afraid what we have is exactly theopposite – a centralised artifice of impersonalregional public corporations run by remoteone–party cabinets, staffed by aunion–dominated workforce and run byoverpaid officers who run rings aroundmediocre career councillors, most of who bringlittle else to the table other than their partisanpolitics, which ill–equips them to run amulti–million pound business.Cheered by ‘new’ bus servicesFIRST of all I must thank all those kind peoplewho have given me their condolencesfollowing the death of my brother George.I never suspected that there was so muchgoodwill and even affection for either me orGeorge – the response both in cards and fromfolk simply stopping me on the street has beentruly heart–warming.But back to business...Although not feeling particularly festive at themoment, I was cheered by the announcementthat Merseytravel has at last been persuaded toprovide buses on Boxing Day and New Year’sDay to my neck of the woods (Maghull) for thefirst time in donkey’s years. At last I, and otherswithout access to a motor car, will be able toget out and about to some extent.Mind you, these services are being touted as‘new’. Well, new indeed for Merseytravel whoare providing them, but back in the days of mychildhood there were ‘normal’ bus services onboth these days and a skeleton service at leaston Christmas Day as well.Now I know what you will be thinking. Busdrivers too want to spend Christmas withfamily and friends. Of course they do. But then,we all expect the TV to function normally,many will be popping down to the pub forfestive drinks or indeed their Christmas dinner.And we would be a little put out if the lightsdidn’t work.For all these things men and women have toforego at least part of their own Christmascelebrations. But more to the point, I do notthink there would be any great difficulty infinding enough volunteers to drive a bus onChristmas Day. There must be several who, likeme this year, have precious little reason to bemerry. People who would probably quite liketo have something to fill their time and earn afew bob on the way.In fact, I reckon the real reason that so fewmake any fuss about the lack of any means ofgetting about, short of horrendously pricedtaxis, is that since the majority now have a car,or easy access to one, lone voices crying in thewilderness can safely be disregarded.Moreover, local government was once thecoalface of British democracy wheremembership of a political party was amainstream social activity in which peoplegave their time and expertise for the benefit oftheir community.I contend that, after the 1974 replacement oflocal councils with mega authorities, ordinarypeople lost interest in daytime meetings held indistant places and huge budgets which nopart–time elected representative could hope toadequately oversee.Once ‘local’ became ‘regional’, the wholeprocess of participation went off the boil, as didvoters’ appreciation of the relevance ofdemocracy to their everyday lives, witnessdeclining voter turnout at elections.I suggest that, as part of a pilot exercise indemocratic renewal, Sefton be split into three‘mini’ metropolitan boroughs of Bootle,Southport and South West Lancashire, inrecognition that each of these communities hasits own distinct priorities, identity and needs.Size isn’t important; if Rutland Council hassatisfactorily performed the role of a unitaryauthority since 1997 notwithstanding its tinypopulation of 37,369, there’s no reason whythree ‘mini–mets’ with an average populationof 90,000 a–piece could not work up here.David Green,SouthportTell us what you think!editor@champnews.comAnd, for once at least, I’m not thinking aboutmy own situation. The two dogs, Tina andCinders, will need good walks anyway, sothat’ll fill quite a bit of time.I have been very kindly invited round to oneperson’s home for my Christmas dinner – aninvite I feel I can’t really take up because itwould mean abandoning said dogs.Instead I have decided on starting a newtradition for the three of us, with Christmasdinner (including Christmas pud) and a goodsit–down to watch the repeats on telly. Andthere’s Dr Who to look forward too as well.Then, on Boxing Day, just to show willing Ican catch the ‘new’ 250 bus into town and dosomething or other quickly before catchinganother back to relax with the hounds.Now if only Merseyrail could be persuaded tobring back local Boxing Day trains my cupcould indeed run over and the dogs and I couldhave a good long ramble along the lanesbetween Ormskirk and Maghull.Sorry if all this seems a tad sorry for myself –as I said at the beginning of this column, I’mgenuinely chuffed at the number of folk who docare – and would no doubt do so no matterwhat the time of year.And so to all readers of this column, aheartfelt Happy Christmas. Make it a time ofgoodwill to everyone.AS the festive lights go up on the formerCarlton Hotel and the new bespoke EightyEight Bar and Brasserie opens I thought itwould be quite apt to focus this week’s StrangeBut True around number 88 Lord Street...When you open your Christmas crackerschances are you’ll find a joke about a horsewalking into a bar. You always get one.However, in the 1970s a horse walking into abar certainlywasn’t a joke in Southport!Among the thirsty clientele of what was onceone of Lord Street’s iconic hostelries were localshop–owners, businessmen and a Birkdale cardealer/racehorse trainer by the name ofDonald ‘Ginger’ McCain.Even if you’re not au fait with steeplechases orfurlongs, chances are you’ll have heard ofGinger McCain – a legendary trainer who wonthe Grand National four times – three of themwith an Irish–bred gelding called Red Rumwhose name also probably rings a bell!On March 31 1973 Red Rum stormed home bya mere three–quarters of a length (innon–racing terms about 6ft) in what was thena record time of nine minutes and two seconds.Rummy became an instant hero across theUK, no more so than in Southport where theequine superstar returned with a beamingGinger McCain.Everyone in the town wanted to see Rummyafter that win and the place they’d most likelyspot him was the bar at the Carlton Hotel.It wasn’t uncommon for Ginger to takeRummy into the bar from time to time andshortly after his first win at Aintree, thechampion thoroughbred would be propping upthe bar, completely at ease with the admiringpunters and regulars around him.One shop manager who worked at Paige, nowthe Gift Company, on Lord Street was finishingfor the day on April 2 and joined her staff for adrink across the road at the Carlton.As they entered they were greeted by Rummy,by then well into his second pint of water.Shortsightedview on kerbsRe: article on raised kerbs.This motion put forward by councillorssupporting raised kerbs is veryshort–sighted to say the least.All kerbs should be lowered.As a mobility scooter user you cannot getup and down kerbs.I am sure I am speaking for all the othermobility scooter users, wheelchair users,rollator users, people who have difficulty inwalking, not forgetting mums with prams.The councils could use knobbly pavementflags just before a road. Then blind peoplecould feel them underfoot and know theyare at a road.They will know they are safely across whenthey feel the knobbly flags.So then all people with disabilities wouldnot have to negotiate high kerbs.Barbara Monaghan,By emailSmoke bombscould cause panicI must congratulate Merseyside Police foracquiring smoke grenades ‘designed todisorientate offenders’.How does this magic smoke know who todisorientate?Only last week, I took an escalator upstairs ina large and very noisy HMV store, and then hadtrouble finding my way downstairs.If smoke is released in a large store, I imaginethat panic would follow.David Garner, Southport.Heard the one about ahorse walking into a bar?The story recounted to me is as follows: “Wefinished for the day and locked up beforeheading over to the Carlton.“When we got there Ginger, who we all knew,called us over for a drink and was effusive in hispraise of Rummy, who had attracted quite a bitof attention.“It was just after he’d won his first National.To be honest I don’t think many people werefazed by a great big horse at the bar.“We all got a round of drinks and chattedabout how incredible the race had been.“Rummy was calm as anything – he wasn’tscared of the crowds or all that bothered butyou could tell how proud and elated Gingerwas and who could blame him?”The original building at 88 Lord Street waserected in 1901 and called The CarltonMansions. Local millionaire John Craig made amove for the building shortly after in 1924 andthe name was changed to the Carlton Hotel.In 1977, after Red Rum won his third GrandNational and took a well–earned rest, thehotel’s bar became known as The Red Rum barin honour of the horse’s magnificentachievements.Who knows, perhaps Rummy galloped to thefinishing post so quickly to make sure he madeit to the bar for last orders...

It includesmany of his iconic images, such as TheSnail and the Blue Nudes.Matisse continued creating highlyoriginal works into his eighties. Forhis cut–outs he used paperhand–painted with gouache, laiddown in abstract or figurativepatterns: He said: “The paper cut–outallows me to draw in the colour.Instead of drawing the outline andputting the colour inside it.

Now isthe time to check the battery andthat your screen has afreeze–resistant additive.Clear the snow from thewindscreen and windows, fromthe roof and the car of the bonnetas well as it will blow black on toother cars when you get moving.Bear this in mind whenfollowing other vehicles,particularly lorries. Ice and snowfrom the roofs of lorries can blowonto the road.Whatever the weather, makesure your windscreen andwindows are clean. Low wintersun will highlight smears andscratches and cars get muchdirtier more quickly when theroads are wet. Clean yourwindows inside and out–adirtyscreen will cause the windows tomist up much quicker.Don’t switch the engine on untilyou are ready to go; a modern cardoes not need to warm the engineenough coal to heat Sheffield for amonth to all the ones who’ve beennaughty.If Father Christmas actually issuedRudolph and his mates their P45s anddid his rounds next Tuesday nightwith a car, said vehicle would have tohave Antonov–rivalling levels ofroom inside for all the presents, andstill somehow be light enough to parkon a snowy roof without eithercrashing through the slate tiles ontothe mince pies simmering below orsliding off altogether, falling into thestreet below and landing TheChampion the festive scoop of thecentury.I reckon, boys and girls, that theprestigious job of delivering all thepresents can only be done using adozen reindeer and a sleigh endowedwith a TARDIS–esque quality.Particularly because the only way Ican think of him doing the jobautomotively depresses me.Father Christmas clattering up yourdriveway in a battered old MercedesSprinter would ruin the magic ofChristmas!If our bearded chum way up northdoes own a car, I reckon he’d use it forrather more mundane duties. Poppingto the Lapland branch of ASDA,perhaps, or running the elves backfrom the pub on a Friday night.I quite liked the idea of FatherChristmas, if he’s anything like thegrumpy Englishman portrayed in the1991 cartoon, bobbing about insomething like an old TriumphHerald, but it stands to reason that heboth lives and works at either Laplandor the North Pole, both of whichrequire the use of something a bitsturdier. Something which is comfyenough for a portly bloke who’sgetting on a bit, but can still fight itsway out of a snowdrift.Therefore, after much deliberation,I’ve decided that Father Christmas isa Range Rover man. Merry Christmas!No cold stalling this Christmasup. When you get in the car, makesure all extras such as lights,heaters and the radio are turnedoff before you try starting it.When you’re ready to go, switchthe heater or the air con on, sothat the windows don’t steam up.Check that you can see throughall the mirrors and windowsbefore pulling away. Use the‘ice’ setting if your car has one.As well as making sure your caris ready, it’s important thatyou’re appropriately preparedtoo. Make sure your mobilephone is fully charged. Programthe number for your breakdownprovider into it, and ensure youhave any policy numbers ormembership cards that you mightneed. Think about youremergency kit, particularly inrural areas–ahighvizjacket,food and water, boots, de–icer,scraper, torch and shovel are allmusts when the weather isparticularly bad. And if you takeregular medication, make sureyou have enough with you in caseyou’re delayed.Don’t forget, if the weather isreally bad; think about whetheryou really need to make thejourney before travelling.
