Dont leave valuables in your car
HESWALL police believe that the warm weather has brought with it a rise in anti social
behaviour and car crime.
Local police chief Inspector Mick Blease said: We have many beauty spots along
the west coast of Wirral that attract visitors from a far. Owners are constantly leaving
personal belongings on display such as handbags or remove the same and place in
the boot, which may be witnessed by the potential offender. The message is simple,
remove anything from display that may be a target and take it with you.
Anti-social behaviour problem
POLICE have tackled anti-social-behaviour on Pensby Road, at its junction with Ashley
Road, by providing a highly visible presence during peak times.
Point of View
Please note that Heswall is on the Dee Estuary, in Cheshire, and isnt in or on
Merseyside. This very unattractive 1974 creation was abolished a few years
ago, and because of Wirrals CH postcode its traditional county of Cheshire can
be used again. The traditional counties are part of Britains heritage and must be
used at all times. I am very much a traditionalist as regards counties!

HeswaLL resident
Paddy Hehir has set
off on a 5,000-mile
bike ride around the
British coastline in
aid of the alzheimers
society.
He is cycling
unsupported around
the whole coastline
of the mainland -
England,Wales and
Scotland (with a few
Scottish islands thrown
in for good measure.)
If he lasts the course
he will cover approx.
5000 miles over circa
3 and a half months,
equivalent to cycling
from Liverpool to
Calcutta). He hopes to
average over 50 miles
a day - in all weather
and over all terrains
- travelling clockwise
with the prevailing
SW winds. He will be
recording his exploits
with a photographic
blog - capturing the
places he visits and the
people he meets en
route.
Paddy is carrying all his own gear
including a tent, sleeping bag, cooking
equipment, cycle spares, clothing etc but
will not finch from using B&Bs and YHAs
should the need arise!
Sabbatical
While this is a personal challenge - made
possible by taking a 12 month sabbatical
from work Paddy is raising funds for
the Alzheimers Society in memory of
his mum, Pat Hehir, who suffered from
a long, slow decline and eventual death
from dementia a few years ago .
All monies raised will be used by the
society to support people to live with
dementia today to hopefully fnd a cure for
tomorrow.
Donations can be made via JustGiving
directly to the charity and Gift Aid is
reclaimed on every eligible donation by a
UK taxpayer: www.justgiving.com/paddy-
hehir

A GROUP of tenants in
Heswall have spruced up
their homes and improved
security at the same time.
Wirral Partnership Homes
(WPH) provided 300 to
buy plants and gardening
equipment. This
brightened up a corner
of their communal land
and increased security by
helping to prevent people
climbing over the fence
and using the gardens as
a short cut.
In addition, WPH estate
management team and
tenants were helped by
Sodexo, the company that
provides horticultural and
grounds maintenance for
WPH developments, who
supplied labour free of
charge.
Tenants were invited
along and were keen to
join in the tidy up and
planting out of the borders.
WPH tenant Michael Ryan
said: This is tremendous,
the border is now pleasing
on the eye and has been
planted out properly. It will
also act as a deterrent to
stop people jumping over
the fence to cut through
from the land behind.
So far this fnancial
year WPH has given
over 24,000 in one-
off Community Grants
ranging from a small
amount of 150 for a
bonfre night party to help
prevent children becoming
involved in anti-social
activities to an application
in excess of 5,000 from
a fund which is managed
as an annual budget of
30,000.
Brian Simpson, chief
executive WPH added:
WPH are really pleased
to support this project and
Community Grants help to
improve neighbourhoods
and make a positive
contribution in a variety of
ways to the sustainability
of the community for
which it is intended. We
continue to receive some
very worthwhile bids for
consideration.
Tenants and staf muck in!
Q We have decided to install a new en suite and would
like to give it a luxurious home-spa feel. Weve already
picked a large bath and multi-jet shower but would
like to fnd out more about the latest developments in
loo design. We were thinking of having a bidet too but
space is tight.
A Have you thought about having a loo with
an integrated shower function? These have
long been popular in Japan and Europe and
are far more hygienic than conventional loos.
Now Geberit, the leading European manu-
facturers of loos that clean you with water,
have launched its AquaClean range in the UK.
Featuring sleek designs, these units are avail-
able as wall hung ceramics or enhancement
seats so you can easily upgrade your existing
loo. They all include an oscillating shower with
forward and backwards movement, air purifcation and a
warm air dryer.
The Geberit AquaClean range is comfortable and styl-
ish too. And with a model to suit every style of home,
it would make a perfect addition to your new spa-like
bathroom.
Q Should I be concerned about how much water is
used in spray-function toilets?
A The Geberit AquaClean 4000 only uses 400ml of water
at each use, and although this is more than a normal loo,
there are positive environmental aspects to this choice,
such as using less toilet paper. Water, chem-
icals and other raw materials are wasted in
the production of toilet paper, and while
its biodegradable, the process still leaves
chemical traces in our water supply.
Q Im really interested in buying a Geberit
toilet with a spray function, but I have
heard theyre very expensive. Are there
any more afordable alternatives?
A You dont have to spend a vast amount
of money to purchase a Geberit toilet. There are also less
expensive models in the range such as the Geberit Aqua-
Clean 4000. This compact loo seat is designed to replace
your existing loo seat and is straightforward to install, as
it fts on the existing seat.
At Wirral Wetrooms you really can fnd
out how powerful your shower will be or
how well your toilet will fush!
The Irby showroom is being kitted out with
all the latest technology and equipment so
customers can get a feel of how their new
bathroom will look.
The new frst foor showroom extension will
have10 fully functional showers including all
the latest digital technology and 12 opera-
tional taps and bathfllers including the latest
infra red variants and an operating sauna
with all the latest audio and visual technolo-
gy including tiled in tvs dab radios and mirrors
that have radios and the ability to plug in to
your i pod so you can really sing in the shower
along with your favourite tracks.
The company is investing 250.00.00 in the
refurbishment and expansion project with the
principal idea that clients can experience
how different taps and showers operate in
real life conditions.
Even more remarkably, you can even try out
the new Geberit Aquaclean toilet, which is
effectively a combined toilet and bidet.
Managing Director Dave Sergison said: Our
new showroom will be completely unique for
the Wirral, and will revolutionise the experi-
ence of buying a new bathroom for our
customers.
We want nothing more than people to
come in and try them out for themselves,
even down to taking your shoes off and feel
the under foor heating, you can even take a
shower if you are game, we dont mind!

Q We have decided to install a new
en suite and would like to give it
a luxurious home-spa feel. Weve
already picked a large bath and
multi-jet shower but would like
to fnd out more about the latest
developments in loo design. We
were thinking of having a bidet too
but space is tight.
A Have you thought about having
a loo with an integrated shower
function? These have long been
popular in Japan and Europe
and are far more hygienic than
conventional loos. Now Geberit, the
leading European manufacturers
of loos that clean you with water,
have launched its AquaClean range
in the UK. Featuring sleek designs,
these units are available as wall hung
ceramics or enhancement seats so
you can easily upgrade your existing
loo. They all include an oscillating
shower with forward and backwards
movement, air purifcation and a
warm air dryer.
The Geberit AquaClean range is
comfortable and stylish too. And with
a model to suit every style of home,
it would make a perfect addition to
your new spa-like bathroom.
Q Should I be concerned about how
much water is used in spray-function
toilets?
A The Geberit AquaClean 4000 only
uses 400ml of water at each use, and
although this is more than a normal
loo, there are positive environmental
aspects to this choice, such as using
less toilet paper. Water, chemicals
and other raw materials are wasted
in the production of toilet paper, and
while its biodegradable, the process
still leaves chemical traces in our
water supply.
Q Im really interested in buying a
Geberit toilet with a spray function,
but I have heard theyre very
expensive. Are there any more
affordable alternatives?
A You dont have to spend a vast
amount of money to purchase a
Geberit toilet. There are also less
expensive models in the range such
as the Geberit AquaClean 4000. This
compact loo seat is designed to
replace your existing loo seat and is
straightforward to install, as it fts on
the existing seat.

the Mount, with Pensby Road in the background, before signing up as volunteers

AwArd-winning local amateur
theatre company neston Players next
production will witness aching feet and
heaving bosoms unleashed on the un-
suspecting neston public but all in the
aid of a good cause!
Cheshire Cats, by local author Gail Young,
follows the emotional journey of a group of
friends as they aim to speed-walk their way to
fund raising success in the London Moonwalk
while also enjoying a girly weekend away in
the capital. Trainers and wildly decorated bras
are in, high heels and designer labels are out!
Director Jo Rymer, who directed the Players
extremely well-received production of Whose
Life Is It Anyway, commented, Cheshire Cats
is an affectionate, comic tribute to all those
who participate in, organise and get involved
in any way to charity walking events world-
wide it is especially relevant this year with
2012 being the 15th anniversary of the frst
Moonwalk.
Players go the extra mile for charity
Almost everyone knows someone
who has battled with cancer. As
one of the leading causes of death
today, cancer touches the lives of
nearly everyone indeed several

had personal experiences which
they have shared with others dur-

period. That is why the Players
have decided to donate 1 from
every ticket sold to two leading
charitable organisations in the fght
against cancer nationally, Cancer
Research UK, and, locally, our own
Clatterbridge Hospital, Oncology
Department.

Contemporary Kitchens was founded
in July 2006 and traded successfully from
Burton nurseries Shopping Village until
recently when we sadly had to relocate,
along with many other businesses, when
the nurseries went into administration.
Contemporary Kitchens is the result of a Profes-
sional Kitchen Designer of some 40 years and
the recipient of a Poggenpohl European Kitchen
Designer of The Year Award and a Partner with
extensive kitchen experience deciding to break
the mould and start their own business, designing
and selling high quality kitchens in the traditional
way. Discussing and listening to their customers
requirements and what they wanted from their
individual kitchens allows them to design and
supply their dream kitchen at a competitive and
realistic price.
From the design studio which houses unique dis-
plays from traditional to modern, customers can
view a wide selection of door, worktop and handle
designs and the latest in space-saving units.
Contemporary Kitchens can also supply a wide
range of quality appliances again at competitive
prices. We also offer a door and worktop replace-
ment service for those not wishing the distress or
expense of a complete makeover.
From your frst visit to the relaxed studio
environment you will not be hassled as you view
the displays and should you decide to ask for a
free survey of your existing kitchen then this will
be carried out without any pressure or hard sell
tactics.
Your design will then be created using the latest
computer aided design software and you will be
requested to pop in for an informal discussion of
your photo realism plans and any changes decided
can be made there and then on the computer.
Contemporary Kitchens are open seven days a
week from 10am to 4.30pm. Free parking.
Please feel free to come and have a look around,
David & Jimmy will be on hand to answer any
questions.

NesToN South Wirral
Hockey Club, have
enjoyed another
successful season,
with the various junior
teams and ladies frst
team taking most of the
plaudits.
Only promoted from
Cheshire Division Two last
season, most expected the
ladies team to struggle
at a higher level, but in
the end they stormed to a
second successive league
title, and thus secured
a return to the North
Leagues after an eight
year absence.
Buoyed by the return of
club vice-captain Cat Peers
from maternity leave, and
one-time star junior Emma
Nokes, the girls set the
tone for the season, with
an opening day 11-0 win
over Whitchurch. The
arrival of experienced
coach Ben Hodkinson
saw a ftter, stronger and
more confdent side rack
up several more emphatic
victories, including
two more double fgure
victories.
Captain Lisa Morris
stepped down at
Christmas, with new co-
captains Nokes and Sarah
Fearnley ably guiding
the team through the
remainder of the season.
Goals from veterans Sally
Bell and Kerry Cowley
coupled with sterling
defensive work by Hannah
Newall, Lorien Waterer
and Paula Goudie resulted
in an remarkable goal
difference of 67, and 15
victories, three draws
and just two defeats saw
Neston win their second
successive championship
by a comfortable nine-point
cushion.
The ladies play in North
Division Two West next
year, and with long-time
squad members Louise
Alford-Swift and Suzy Twist
due to return from their
pregnancy breaks, Neston
are feeling confdent of
their chances.
Elsewhere, the boys
under 16 side had a
great season, qualifying for
the National Finals after
winning events at both
County and Regional level.
Unfortunately they found
the going too tough in the
tournament at Cannock
Hockey Club, but can
be proud of their efforts
as they faced several
schoolboy internationals in
the opposing ranks. Three
of Nestons team - Luke
Davies-Foo, Johnny Lord
and Joel Hennel-Nealey
- all made their mens
frst team debuts during
the season, showing the
talent in the club, whilst
defender Andy Heaths
performances at Cannock
marked him out as one for
the future.
Meanwhile the beavers
team, made up of under
14s, enjoyed even
better fortunes under the
management of Kenny
Gardiner, as they went
through the season with a
22 game winning run. In
the process they scored
an incredible 221 goals,
and such are Kennys
high standards hell be
disappointed that they
conceded 28!. Whilst not
quite reaching the same
heights, Nestons other
teams all had satisfactory
seasons, and most will
be enjoying a well earned
break before the summer
league hockey starts at
Parkgate in May.

BOOK REVIEWS:
BOOKS FOR MAY
BY ELEANOR DAVIES, FROM LINGHAMS BOOKSTORE, HESWALL
Biography:
Just Boris: A Tale of Blond Ambition
A major and controversial
new biography of one of
the most compelling and
contradictory fgures in
modern British life.
Born Alexander Boris de
Pfeffel Johnson, to most
of us he is just Boris - the
only politician of the age
to be regarded in such
familiar, even affectionate terms.
Uniquely, he combines comedy with
erudition, gimlet-eyed focus with jokey
self-deprecation, and is a loving family man
with a roving eye. This biography, written
by one of his fellow undergraduates (now
a journalist), is an
unbiased and sparky
account of one of the
2 key contenders in
this months London
mayoral elections- and
believe me, its not
always complimentary.
Is Boris the bumbling
buffoon he appears to be or is he an
arrogant opportunist? Read this book and
decide for yourself.
General Fiction:
The Last Hundred Days
Patrick McGuinness
The socialist state is in crisis,
the shops are empty and old
Bucharest vanishes daily under
the onslaught of Ceaucescus
demolition gangs. Paranoia is
pervasive and secret service men
lurk in the shadows.
In The Last 100 Days, Patrick
McGuinness creates an
absorbing sense of time and place as the city
struggles to survive this intense moment in
history. He describes a world of extremity and
ravaged beauty from the viewpoint of an outsider
uncomfortably, and often dangerously, close
to the eye of the storm as the regime of 1980s
Romania crumbles to a bloody end.
We recently read this in
the Linghams book club
and everyone agreed it was
thoroughly gripping, highly
evocative and a great way
to learn about recent history.
Longlisted for the 2011 Booker
prize, and shortlisted for the
Costa best frst novel award, this
is particularly recommended for reading groups.

As booksellers who in their time have been asked for an Australian dictionary
and whether the film of Lord of the Rings has yet been made into a book, the
Linghams staff could all find examples here of crazy things people say which
have also been uttered in Heswall. A great little present for a booklovers
