Whole lotta

hygge

I‘ve never knowingly been ahead of the curve in

terms of latest trends and fashions. I usually pick

up on great TV series about four years after they first

aired, and I’m about three models behind the latest

‘must have’ mobile.

Yet of late, I’ve discovered I have been about 25 years

ahead of almost everyone I know when it comes

to hygge. For the uninitiated, it’s a Danish word

(pronounced‘hooga’) which has no direct equivalent

in English. The closest you can get is ‘cosiness’ or a

general desire to appreciate the simple things in

life. The word first drew my attention in the mid

1990s while visiting Scandanavia for the first time.

As someone with a voracious appetite for learning

languages, I picked up a Danish phrasebook and

started memorising the odd word. The book came

with a section on Danish traditions, way of life etc

and that’s where hygge was mentioned.

It seems the term has now made it over here as it’s

been the subject of various highbrow newspapers

we take of a weekend... it impresses the guests when

we use it for Pass The Parcel. A hardback - entitled

The Little Book of Hygge - has also been published. So

how can you get the hygge lifestyle? It’s quite simple

actually; put your phone down, switch off the TV

and go for a walk. Spend time with friends and

family. Cook meals from scratch. Build a campfire.

Learn to play an instrument. Plan an adventure. You

get the idea. In fact it’s the kind of things this very

publication has espoused for years. Yes, you read

all about hygge here first - and probably didn’t even

realise it!

Village hall improvements

Funding has been approved for

repairs and refurbishment at Rainhill

Village Hall.

The £28,000, awarded by WREN’s FCC Community

Action Fund, will be used to replace the boilers and

upgrade the heating system. The appearance of the

hall will also be much improved by replacing the

soffits, fascias and gutters.

Rainhill Village Hall Management Committee has

welcomed the news - saying that having a reliable

and efficient heating system will make a huge

difference to the hall users.

WREN is a not for profit business that awards grants

for community, biodiversity and heritage projects

from funds donated by FCC Environment through

Landfill Communities Fund.

Richard Smith, WREN’s grant manager, said: “We’re

delighted to be supporting Rainhill Village Hall and

pleased our funding will make such a difference to

so many groups of people across Rainhill. WREN

is always happy to consider grant applications for

projects that benefit local communities and we’re

looking forward to this one having a positive

impact very soon.”

The Management Committee hopes the

improvements will be completed early this year.

Rainhill Village Hall is a charity and is mainly run by

volunteers. It is now in the process of redecorating

all the rooms, but the hall requires some major

refurbishment that cannot be carried out by

volunteers.

Over 55s flats

Plans to build an over 55s facility will

help address social housing needs in

St Helens.

That’s the claim from Torus Housing Group who

want to erect a £6m facility near the town centre.

If passed, it will be built at the site of former Lowe

House School, Crab Street, and will house 61

apartments split across a three-storey building and

four-storey building.

Papers lodged with the application say there will

be a choice of one and two bedroom apartments,

as well as a communal lounge and 47 off-street car

parking spaces for residents.

They add: “All apartments will be for affordable

rent, which is rent based on 80% of the local open

market rent.

“The development will be built on vacant

become a focus for increasing anti-social behaviour

and has subsequently become a blight upon the

area.

“If planning approval is obtained, then it is

envisaged that there will be a start on site in April

with completion taking place in October 2019.”

Paul says goodbye

A Rainhill choirmaster and organist has said his

farewells after 17 years. Paul Jones arrived at St

Ann’s Church, from St Margaret’s in Anfield. He’s

now moving on again, this time to St Cuthbert’s

in Southport. A farewell dinner was held for him at

the Victoria Hotel on Warrington Road recently. A

spokesman for St Ann’s said: “We will miss Paul and

wish him success and every happiness in his new

role.”

Students rally for fundraiser

Staff and students from

the Creative Media

department at St Helens

College rallied together

to raise funds for The

Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The students, dressed in bright

yellow, travelled across the

College with a cake trolley in tow, to sell cakes and

biscuits donated by the local Tesco superstore in St

Helens and raffle tickets, to win a family ticket to

the first game of the rugby season, gifted by Saints

RLFC.

Second Year student, Paige Ollerhead, documented

the day by taking over St Helens College’s Instagram

page: “It was really interesting for me as it gave me

the opportunity to experience how to promote

such an important event through social media.”

Town councillors reduced?

The number of town councillors in Prescot and

Whiston could be cut. A public consultation is

set to start imminently over moves which would

reduce the total numbers to 12 councillors in each

authority. Currently, Prescot has 17 town councillors

while Whiston has 14. The changes have been

called for as part of Knowsley Council’s community

governance review. Yvonne Ledgerton, assistant

executive director at Knowsley Council, said in a

report: “A second phase of public consultation will

commence on February 2 via a formal notice in a

newspaper circulating in the area.” Any changes

would likely be implemented for the next set of

elections in May 2019.

It’s crust the ticket!

Cutting sugar

By Abi Jackson

So there might be a super-size helping of

clean-eating backlash simmering at the

moment (hurrah!), but that doesn’t mean all notions

of healthy-eating need to go out the window.

And this includes sugar. Luckily, when it comes to

blatant sugar-fests (doughnuts, birthday cakes,

family-sized Dairy Milks...), our nauseous stomachs

make it clear when enough’s enough. Where it gets

trickier though, is all this ‘hidden sugar’ malarkey (I

mean, how does a few spoons of beans have more

sugar than a biscuit?!). And then there’s fruit, and

juice, and all the confusion around that.

So how can we have our cake and eat it - without

totally screwing up our health goals?

:: What’s wrong with sugar?

“For many of us brought up from the Sixties to

the Eighties, Saturdays meant a trip to the corner

shop or your local Woolworths to spend pocket

money on as many sweets as you could fit into a

pick ‘n’ mix bag. It was also commonplace to have

a well-stocked biscuit tin in the kitchen,” says Rob

Hobson, author of The Detox Kitchen Bible and

head of nutrition at Healthspan (www.healthspan.

co.uk). “ We’re now reaping the legacy of this,


17

and of the food industry’s habit of slipping sugar

into everything from soups to smoothies, in the

epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease

and dementia. Highly refined sugars are the worst

and have a dramatic effect on blood glucose levels.

In excess, these sugars are converted to blood fats

called triglycerides, that may have a harmful effect

on the liver and encourage the build-up of bad

cholesterol, implicated in heart disease risk.”

:: What’s being done about that?

Official bodies are “all over the message to cut

down on sugar”, Hobson notes. In March last year,

the WHO (World Health Organisation) urged us to

“reduce ‘free’ sugars added during food processing,

preparation or cooking, and in honey, syrups and

fruit juice”. A few months on, the Scientific Advisory

Committee on Nutrition (SACN), which advises the

government on diet, recommended slashing added

sugars to 5% of daily calories - “half the previous

recommended intake,” Hobson adds. Experts now

Rob Hobson, head of nutrition for Healthspan


18

agree we should aim for around six teaspoons of

added sugars a day, but research suggests most of

us consume around 12.

:: Why is it so confusing?

“ Unfortunately, it’s not easy to tell how much

you consume, as sugar masquerades under many

different names. Fructose, for example, may

appear on labels as itself or be concealed under

the umbrella of sucrose, which is half fructose, half

glucose,” explains Hobson.

“Weirdly, I sometimes find myself in defence of

sugar, as some people begin to focus too much

on this single nutrient and become obsessed with

anything that contains a single grain of the stuff,”

he adds. “A little is fine - and yes, soft drinks are a

definite no-no - but worrying about yoghurts and

the odd glass of fruit juice seems a bit over the top.

“It’s also funny that those worried about sugar turn

to ‘natural’ alternatives that are essentially sugar,

whether that’s in the form of agave, maple syrup,

Prescot Chiropody Clinic

coconut sugar, date syrup or any other trendy food

product. There is also a certain comfort and sense

of occasion with sweet foods that you just can’t get

from any others. Can you imagine being served a

slice of sugar-free birthday cake?”

:: One lump of common sense, or two dear?

“The key is to take a sensible approach to how you

eat, and unfortunately that goes back to the adage

of everything in moderation. Set a realistic goal for

reducing sugar that you can stick with in the longterm,

rather than go cold turkey,” says Hobson.

Here are his seven top tips for reducing sugar the

sensible way...

1. Check the label

Always check labels. Ingredients are listed in order

of amount, so the nearer the top, the higher the

quantity. Look for foods with green and amber

traffic light labels.

2. Seek out certain ingredients

Sucrose, glucose, fructose, or anything that ends in

-ose, as well as healthier sounding alternatives, such

as raw sugar, barley malt, maple syrup, coconut

nectar, palm sugar, agave nectar, date sugar and

brown rice syrup are among sugar’s many guises.

3. Take your time

If you’re a sugar addict, cut the amount you add to

cereals, pancakes, tea or coffee by half. Once you’ve

got used to the taste, halve the amount again.


19

4. Sweet food swaps

Try sweetening foods with a little fresh or dried fruit

or go for ‘sweet food options’ that are fruit based. A

slice of malt loaf has a quarter of the sugar content

and twice the fibre of a chocolate cookie.

5. Include proteins and fats

A Mediterranean diet, with protein from fish, lean

meat, cheese and yoghurt and healthy fats mainly

from olive oil, nuts and seeds, will keep you more

satisfied between meals, which in turn means you

are less likely to reach for the biscuit tin.

6. Get spicy

Flavour foods that you would normally sweeten

with sugar, with spices. Try ginger, allspice, nutmeg

and cinnamon.

7. Don’t be a softie

Soft drinks are some of the biggest offenders in

boosting sugar intake. But shop-bought smoothies,

energy drinks, fruit juices, iced teas, coffees and

flavoured waters can all be sugar-laden too.

Scrum on down

They’re the world’s oldest rugby club. Now Liverpool St Helens

history is being made into an exhibition. Niamh Ollerton reports...

Queen Victoria’s reign was a time of social, economic and technological

change. Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist was published; the London-

Birmingham railway line opened and married women were given the right to own

property. And in 1857, the face of sport changed forever - right here in this area.

Rugby union is more often than not described as a southerners’ game with strong

roots in the public schools. But a group of local young men from Liverpool decided

this should no longer be the case.

They were bored with their usual pastimes, and looked back to their recent years at

public school – Rugby School to be precise – to rectify this.

Frank Albert Mather of Bootle Hall and a former Rugby School pupil,

wrote to his old friend Richard Sykes, a Manchester lad who was

captain of football at Rugby, inviting him to play a game of football.

He also asked him to bring one of the balls which were made by

Lindon, who at the time made the balls for games at Rugby.

So on Saturday, December 19 1857, some 50 players arrived at

Liverpool Cricket Club ground to play “Rugby versus the World.”

Thought to be a trial game to explain Rugby’s version of football,

the final score of the game is not known, but the players’ appetite for

continuing on this tradition was history in the making, and Liverpool


23

Rugby Football club was formed on that day.

It’s safe to say that the club had a colourful history

from then on. The club actually provided three

of the England squad that played Scotland in the

first ever International in 1871 at Braeburn Place,

Edinburgh.

When Liverpool St Helens, as we know it today, was

still in its early years, the club had two seasons in

National Division One separated by one in Division

Two. But, this early triumph soon changed.

In 1914, the club had three International captains

in the 1st XV, Ronnie Poulton (later Poulton-Palmer)

with England, F.H. Turner for Scotland, and R.A.

Lloyd of Ireland. Some recent Internationals who

played for Liverpool include Fran Cotton, Maurice

Colclough, Mike Slemen and Kevin Simms.

“Cowley still a powerful

rugby institution”

Meanwhile in St Helens, a new club was forming.

When it was founded in 1919, St Helens RUFC was

known as St Helens Old Boys, with many of the

original members being old students of Cowley

School, which even today holds the status of a

powerful rugby institution.

Internationals who played for the club include

Alan Ashcroft, John Horton and the current club

President Ray French who has the rare distinction

of International honours in both league and union.

In 1986, Liverpool and St Helens merged and still

continue to play at Moss Lane, the former St Helens

club’s ground, just off Windle Island.

The club sank to Division Four and spent almost

all of the 1990s coming to terms with the new age

of professionalism and the new order of the game.

However, during its time in the upper strata, it

furnished home international players in Dewi Morris

(England) and Simon Mason (Ireland).

Fast forward to today, Liverpool St Helens Football

Club and its unique history is receiving

recognition as the oldest open rugby

club in the world with a £75,000

grant awarded to them from the

Heritage Lottery Fund. As the years

have passed, the club has built upon

its illustrious story, and the Heritage

Project has captured this, creating a

comprehensive archive, in Liverpool

Record Office, with documents and

photographs from the past which are

now publically accessible for the first

time.


24

The 18-month piece of work began in 2017 and involves students at Edge Hill

University, St Helens College and Cowley School all helping to develop a

website, a booklet and a touring exhibition across libraries in St Helens and

in Liverpool Central Library.

LSH president Ray French said “The club has a long and proud history. The

development of both the Liverpool and St Helens clubs is reflected in

the social history of the time and this work will enable us to share

this with a wider audience”.

On this walk you’ll wander through the

historical village of Cronton that appeared

in the 1086 Domesday Book, walk above the now

disused quarry that will have provided the foundation

stones of homes close by, and see far into the distance

from the top of Pex Hill. And with companions at

the ready, this route has all the ingredients for an

enjoyable outing.

The starting point for our 4.5 mile walk was the car

park next to the Leighton Observatory at Pex Hill.

Once booted up, wrapped up warm, and ready for

the challenge, my colleague Peter and I headed off

on the very cold, but clear winter afternoon.

Firstly head left out of the car park – where you’ll

actually be walking between two covered reservoirs

– and follow the road down the hill, through the

Cronton

by Niamh Ollerton

gate and into the field; keeping to the left of it.

As we headed down the side of the field, Peter and

I were chatting about travel and the like to which

he said do you know what the Dream is? To which

I thought he meant a deep philosophical question,

but as you look to your right, in the distance you’ll

in fact see the Dream statue.

Continue on through the next field, which

happened to be filled with potatoes as far as the

eye could see, and follow the path around the old

sewage works which has an almost eerie air around

it. Carry on until you hit the track running along the

side of the motorway.

Turn left and carry on past the motorway footbridge

and continue along the track. As you look up on

your left you will just about see the shimmering


31

silver dome of the Observatory above the vast trees.

You’ll leave the track as it turns towards Pex Hill,

and continue down the footpath on the right of the

corner, heading down past Cronton Hall. But before

you reach Cronton Hall, on your right you will see

a paddock protected by a metal fence which is

home to the most beautiful black Shire horse which

would give Black Beauty a run for its money.

Once you reach Hall Lane (the main road), turn right

and enjoy the quaint village of Cronton. You’ll pass

the weathered remains of Cronton Cross which was

once the resting place for bearers carrying to the

cemetery, and continue straight on to Penny Lane.

Just before you reach Tue Lane, take the public

footpath on the left. Continue along the footpath

which reminded me of the carriage tracks in films

like Great Expectations, until you’ve crossed the

field and hit a stone footbridge that takes you on

towards Cronton Road.

Cross the road and go right, then turn left into

Lodge Lane. Once past the farm, ignore the first

public footpath sign and continue on to the second

one on your left. Take this one, keeping to the right

of the ditch, through the field and into the next,

until you reach the footbridge on your left.

Go over the footbridge and follow the path until reaching the next

footpath sign and turn right. This will then take you up along the

edge of fields until you emerge onto Chapel Lane.

Here you’ll cross the road and go right, following the road round the

bend to the next public footpath on the left. Take this footpath and

you’ll pass the farm building – but if there’s been heavy rainfall be

wary of the deep tractor tracks – and go through two small gates, and

continue to follow the path round and out onto Sandy Lane, where

you go left.

You can take a closer look at

the Dream statue on our Sutton

walk. There are guides to all our

walks at www.locallife247.co.uk


32

It shocked me to find out that thin and windy Sandy

Lane was once a 60mph road, but is now closed

to motor vehicles. With the ‘slow’ markings still on

the tarmac road, it’s clear to see the vegetation has

made itself at home and the road will eventually be

completely covered in greenery. Sandy Lane will

look lovely in the spring and summertime with the

trees lining the road.

At the end of Sandy Lane go left along Cronton

Road a short distance, then cross over to go up Hall

Lane on your right, passing a lovely red brick family

church. And you’ll then turn right again into Mill

Lane.

When the road turns sharply to the left, instead

you’ll head straight on through the gate, going up

to footpath that was once the continuation of Mill

Lane many moons ago.

At the top, the path reaches the old sandstone

quarry which if you’d like to venture down, a lot of

free climbers are said to dare the heights.

Continue around the fence above the quarry,

following the path round to the footpath entrance

to Pex Hill Nature Reserve, which is beautiful come

any season.

As we walked up the path we had a great view

over to Liverpool; being able to pick out the two

Cathedrals and the Radio City Tower. Then it was

back to the car and off to find a hot cup of tea and a

well-earned piece of cake.

Gardening

PLANT OF THE MONTH

Heather

There are hundreds of varieties of Heather,

which is an easy to grow, low maintenance

plant for your garden borders or pots.

Adding colour to your garden, you can plant

different species at different times A popular, basic

species is a Mediterranean Shrub. With white, pink

or purple flowers, this evergreen shrub blooms late

winter and Spring to a height of around 6-12 inches.

Heather is best planted in Spring and early Autumn,

in acidic soil with good drainage. If your plants are

autumn flowering, you’ll need to prune them in the

spring by removing old woody stems.

Try mixing up different types of heather in each pot

for bright colour and variety to your garden.

TOP TIP

If you don’t know what type of soil you have in your

garden then invest in a soil testing kit to make sure

you pick the right plants for your garden this year.

JOBS FOR FEBRUARY

• Erect a cold frame, polytunnel or greenhouse.

• Sow your tomatoes indoors.

• Plant soft fruit bushes.

• Plant garlic in the ground before the end of the

month.

• Get your nesting box up and ready. There are

great varieties now that come complete with a

camera that links up to your TV so that you can

check in to ‘nest cam’ and see what’s going on

inside!

• Try adding some edges to your lawn to prepare

for the season ahead.

• Sort out your seeds now by sowing date, month

by month.

HAVE A GO!

Have you ever grown your own garlic? Break the

bulbs into individual cloves and plant them, pointedend

sticking up so that the tip is just covered in soil.

Make sure you space them 15cm apart in a sunny

spot with rows that are 30cm apart. They prefer well

drained soil so check this before you commit to your

position.

Range Rover Sport

by Tim Barnes-Clay

Now, here’s a question that you might Of course, it’s a Range Rover, so it is well equipped,

not know the answer to but will almost and the interior is of a high quality. The Windsor

certainly have an opinion on. Is the Range Rover leather seats are impeccable - but the Sport is

Sport one of the most influential cars of the modern quite different to the full ‘Range Rover’. There are

era? A decade or so ago it seemed like all the three diesels, two petrols, and even a new hybrid

celebrities were arriving to events in a Range Rover powertrain to choose from - and all are tuned

Sport, and since then the SUV market has exploded.

Now nearly everybody wants one. Furthermore,

almost every manufacturer is now making them.

The Sport is not really a full-blown Range Rover.

It’s cheaper for a start, and comes with five seats,

but it does offer the option of seven. That said, the

additional chairs are tiny and aren’t appropriate for

fitting kids’ car seats. This is a lower, smaller ‘Rangie’,

designed to appeal to a slightly less affluent, but

still successful, crowd. And the focus has moved

from out-and-out luxury to one that is more about

power and pure on-road use.


37

Fast Facts

• 0-62 mph: 7.2 secs

• Combined mpg: 40.4

• Engine layout: 2993cc six-cylinder turbo diesel

• Max. power (PS): 306

• CO2: 185 g/km

• Price: £69,145

primarily for clout. Only the entry level TDV6 feels

a little lacking, but equally I couldn’t recommend

the powerful eight-cylinder petrol engine on offer

- unless you own a small oil producing nation. This

will really eat away at your cash reserves.

Being designed for on-road action, rather than

the full-blown Range Rover’s off-road capability,

the Sport comes with optional air suspension. This

keeps it comfortable and composed, even when

cornering hard. The issue with driving it fast is

more the size than the capability of the car. Britain’s

most enjoyable roads are just a bit too small to be

throwing a two-tonne SUV around, however good

it might be.

The Range Rover Sport is a status symbol, a luxury

cruiser, and an enjoyable car to drive hard. But it’s

expensive to buy and run - especially with its more

commanding engines. And it’s not certain that the

new hybrid unit can deliver on the claimed figures.

Nevertheless, those who want one won’t be put off

by such trivial matters.
