UNIVERSITY QUARTER?
UNIVERSITY
QUARTER?

SO it looks like the university of Chester will be moving into County hall. This has led to some concerns that handbridge will become the new university Quarter of Chester, following the example of Garden Lane. We’ve got more on this as well as news from Queen’s park high School, pictures from Westminster park FC and we reveal some secrets from the old graveyard on Overleigh road. If that’s not enough we’ve got our popular podiatry column, gardening advice and a recipe from the Grosvenor pulford.

We hope you enjoy the magazine

IN THE NEWS Council cleared for HQ move

CHESHIRE West and Chester Council has pressed ahead with plans to relocate from County Hall into the new HQ building. The decision clears the way for the University of Chester to move into County Hall, much to the anger of some local residents. There are fears that Handbridge could become the new Garden Lane, with student houses popping up everywhere. People in Shipgate Street were particularly unhappy, claiming that the university move would lead to congestion, noise and disturbance. Some people say that Handbridge will change forever and become the new ‘University Quarter’ but councillors voted the move through, saying that it would benefit young people’s education and represent a cost saving for the council in the long run.

Question mark over heritage service

THE CHESTER History and Heritage Centre, at St Michael’s Church, in Bridge Street, is under threat due to service cutbacks. Cheshire West and Chester Council says the community heritage service is being integrated across museums, libraries and archives in the city but no final decision has been made as to the fate of St Michael’s.

benefits cheat is caged

A BENEFIT cheat from Saltney has been sent to prison for 30 weeks after pleading guilty to falsely claiming more than £70,000 in benefits. Donna Depuis, of The Corner Pin Pub, High Street, Saltney and formerly of Elm Square, Lache, appeared for sentencing at Chester Crown Court on Thursday 10th September. The 42-year-old had previously appeared at Chester Crown Court in August where she pleaded guilty to five counts of failing to report changes in her circumstances in order to obtain Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, Income Support and Carers Allowance. She also failed to declare her earnings from work and that she was living with her husband and was overpaid a total of £70,817.53. She was sentenced to 30 weeks imprisonment and must serve a least 15 weeks as well as repaying all the overpaid benefit to Cheshire West and Chester Council and the Department for Work and Pensions. A spokesman for Cheshire West and Chester Council said: “If you think someone you know

is claiming benefit that they are not entitled to, you can ring the Benefit Fraud Hotline on 0300 123 7030 to report your suspicions, or e-mail fraud@

cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk All calls and contact will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

QUEEN’S PARk HIGH SCHOOL NEWS

New head gets to work

350398 QUEEN’S PARk HIGH SCHOOL NEWS New head gets to work QUEEN’S Park High School has

QUEEN’S Park High School has welcomed its new head teacher Stephen Casey. He has taken over following 20 very successful years under the guidance of the previous head teacher Andrew Firman, who retired at the end of August. Mr Casey, originally from Manchester, worked in a number of schools in the North West before taking up the post of head teacher at a large school in the West Midlands. Mr Casey visited the Queen’s Park High School on a number of occasions in the summer term to meet with staff and students and to get to know the school ready to take up his new post at the beginning of September. Mr Casey commented ‘It seems such a long time since I was appointed in January 2009 and I have been really looking forward to joining an already very successful school. I’m indebted to the assistance given to me by Mr Firman in the weeks leading up to the handover and I wish him a very long and happy retirement. “I am extremely pleased to be leading a school that has enjoyed considerable achievements over the last few years, culminating in this year superb A level and GCSE results. I am particularly pleased with the GCSE results for 2009 where 51% of students achieved 5 A*-C including English and Maths. However we must not rest on our laurels. These results provide a strong foundation that will lead to further success for our students. “Our aim is to make Queen’s Park High School an outstanding school that secures success and improvement, ensuring high quality education for all our students with improving standards of learning and achievement. “On a personal level I am also happy to returning to the North West having spent several years further south.’

ANkLE SPRAIN IS THE ARCH ENEmY!

bY PETER COLHOUN

WhAT can be done to help if you have a constant tendency to sprain your
WhAT can be done to help if you have a constant tendency to sprain your ankles?
There is a great deal we can do to help with ankle pain. Recently I gave the example of how
specialist insoles (orthotics) can balance your skeletal structure from the feet up, whilst re-timing the
way you walk. The net result is a ‘neutral’ form of gait that doesn’t put undue wear and tear on the
feet, ankles, knees, lower back and many other locations.
I gave the example of someone who has flat feet, or feet that ‘roll in’ when standing. This in turn tugs
on the inner areas of the knees, pulls the vastus lateralis muscle (that runs from the outside of the thigh
into the knee joint) and widens the pelvic area, placing stress on the hips and increased curvature of
the lower back.
This time, with outside (lateral) ankle sprains, we’re usually looking at the opposite scenario. Instead
of feet that roll in or present with low arches, the ankle-spraining foot is usually consistent with a high
arch.
What happens, is that the foot hits the outside of the heel when first contacting the ground. This is
normal and necessary, but the problem kicks in when the highly arched foot throws more body weight
to the outside edge of the foot. The constantly overloaded outer ankle areas on both feet give way
easily and people with this ‘cavus’ foot type remember back to sprains they sustained when playing
as children.
Over the long term, the regularly sprained ankle becomes a weakened joint with ligament damage -
and sadly – it is even more likely to fail and sprain in future.
So what can be done?
As a point of first aid, if you ever sprain your ankle, follow the RICE protocol: [R]est, steady and
support the ankle, [I]ce the joint with a cold compress to a recent injury to reduce swelling, [C]
ompress the joint slightly by wrapping the ankle in a thick layer of padding/bandaging and [E]levate
the injured limb to reduce further swelling.
What about Orthotics?
Once first aid is complete, it is a good idea to consider orthotics. Specially trained Podiatrists can
take an impression of your foot, which is then sent to a lab with a ‘prescription.’ The lab will then
make some orthotic insoles which in this case, will have two very important roles:
1. Accommodative control. Highly arched feet need to be supported properly. It is a drain on your
lower limb joints to walk on highly arched feet, where you only really strike the heel and ball of foot
areas when walking. If the arch spaced is ‘filled’ with flexible carbon fibre and 4mm of resilient
padding, you will walk with your whole sole-of-foot areas in contact with the bottom of your shoe,
thereby weight-distributing better.
2. Functional control. A specially prescribed orthotic can have subtle ‘posts’ and features that control
the way you walk. In this case, a heavy outside heel striker would benefit from a deeper heel cup with
low extrinsic posting to ‘stabilise’ the rearfoot/subtalar joint more neutrally under the ankle.

GIVE YOUR WEALTH A SPORTING CHANCE

A bumpEr summer season of tennis, golf and cricket is behind us and another football season now underway, culminating with the World Cup in South Africa next year.

These days, our top sports stars enjoy enormous earnings. Tiger Woods is expected to become the first billion dollar sportsman in 2010, while leading cricketers are now accumulating unprecedented riches from the new craze for Twenty20 cricket and the Indian Premier League.

While such eye-watering riches are clearly beyond the grasp of the majority of people, any accumulated wealth, whatever its size, should always be carefully nurtured and protected. Having reached a state of prosperity, it is important to preserve and make the most of hard-earned assets for oneself, families and future generations. Despite this few of us manage our finances particularly well. Financial planning and managing money effectively are often grey areas which are overlooked and misunderstood. Valuable financial advice must be based on an appreciation of a person’s individual circumstances. Developing a wealth management responsibility hinges on three key areas:

• Building and preserving capital, including planning for retirement

• Managing cash and borrowings

• Protecting family and estate against risk

An investment strategy must be developed not only with these objectives in mind, but also by minimising liability to taxation. The key is

Financial column with Simon Dangar

to achieve significant growth in the value of capital over time, and preserve its value. Seeking dedicated professional advice means that risks can be minimised while rewards are maximised through exploiting opportunities to make money work harder. For example, in protecting family and estate against risk, it is vital to establish adequate levels of insurance and the most suitable type of cover to protect against serious risks to life and health. Inadequate planning for financial protection can be disastrous. Everyone who has created wealth should expect to enjoy the fruits of their labours, and there is no substitute for early, careful financial planning to ensure adequate provision is made. But every person with wealth has individual needs, and these are best met by a distinctive wealth management service that offers a range of flexible and innovative solutions coupled with high quality tailored advice. As a result, the management of wealth should only be entrusted to the care of dedicated specialists who are capable of harnessing prosperity and maintaining the real value of hard-earned money.

1899.

Other gravestones tell of two young

boys who drowned in the Dee at Saltney – one died whilst trying to save the other, and of Harry Riley

Horton, a goldsmith, who is bur- ied with nine of his infant children after dying in 1893. This is the only Victorian headstone I have seen with

a photograph set in a small sealed

frame – a practice mainly carried out on the continent – and after 100 years still faintly legible. Fire fighter John Trainer’s family had

a tragic history. His son, aged 23, was washed overboard from City of Berlin on 25th March 1882

and his grandson died aboard SS Campania on 8th January 1911, also aged 23. He was buried at sea. Professor Robert Newstead, the renowned Roman archaeologist who discovered the amphi- theatre and many other Roman remains, is also buried in the cemetery. So too is John Douglas, the genius of Victorian architecture, responsible for so many buildings in Chester and many other towns. He is buried just a few yards away from Thomas Meakin Lockwood who also designed many of Chester’s buildings. It is most appropriate they should have such plain and simple monu- ments – their buildings are far more meaningful. part two next month

AUTUmN DELIGHTS IN OCTObER

Gardening by Janet Heath

AUTUMN is well underway and your garden will be gradually shutting down in preparation for winter. The exuberance of summer flowers and foliage gives way to the more subtle colours of gold, russet, barley yellow and orange from grasses and leaves.

At this time of year there are still flowers - look out for Dahlias in white red or yellow, the pink flowers of the fleshy Sedum spectabile and some Japanese Anemones will still be flowering. However it is the foliage from grasses that will give you delight at this time of year. The grasses such as Stipa gigantea with its tall oat heads and Miscanthus sinensis Zebrinus has cream striped green leaves.

Trees such as Acers have wonderful rich red foliage. There are also many varieties of Crab Apple (Malus) such as John Downie or Golden Hornet with red or yellow small apples that stay on the trees in autumn.

Rowans or Sorbus trees also have ornamental berries that can last on the tree for weeks although the birds tend to eat the red berries first leaving yellow and cream berries on the tree.

In the garden you can continue to dig up and split perennials at this time of year. The roots will continue to grow even in frosty conditions in soil that is still warm from summer below the surface. Conifers and other evergreens can be moved at this time of year, as there is less likelihood of the roots drying out.

Lawns can be scarified and given an autumn feed in October. It is also a good time to lay new turf as it will be well watered in and be less likely to be walked on thus allowing it to grow on well.

Complete digging up any potatoes making sure none are left behind to harbour diseases. Apples that are best for keeping tend to be ready for harvesting in October. An apple that is ripe is one that can be picked when you lift it gently and it comes away easily. Pulling an apple from the tree is an indication that it is not yet ripe.

Our dedicated staff will be on hand to ensure that your ‘special day’ really is just that! Furthermore to help offset some of the costs of ‘your’ private function we intend for a limited period to offer the use of our club house and marquee facilities without the additional cost of room hire! In fact we have put together some new social function ‘packages’ suiting all occasions, a useful fact you may like to keep in mind when planning that special occasion. Remember fulltime chefs are on hand to prepare Chesh- ire sourced produce for the menu of your choice, whilst our well stocked bar offers a full range of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, includ- ing locally brewed ‘Weetwood Real Ale’.

CRIMESTOPPERS is the only UK Independent char- ity working to help solve crimes.

Cheshire Crimestoppers is one of 39 Regional Volun- teer Boards operating under the Crimestoppers banner.

Bonfire Night is tradition- ally a time when communi- ties can come together and enjoy responsibly organised celebrations. There is, how- ever, a darker side whereby individuals or groups hide under the cloak of ‘having a good time’ to start deliberate and dangerous fires and to create fire-related distur- bances which place mem- bers of the public and their property at risk. Increasingly, such activity is not con- fined to November 5th, but begins around the middle of October.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has, for many years, encountered problems in the run up to November 5th. Although the number of inci- dents has, thankfully, fallen over recent years, 2008 still

dents has, thankfully, fallen over recent years, 2008 still saw a total of 187 problem bonfires

saw a total of 187 problem bonfires and 195 ‘small deliberate’ fires attended to at a cost to the ratepayer of over £374.000. On seven occasions, Fire and Rescue personnel were assaulted by troublemakers whilst attend- ing to fires.

Cheshire Crimestoppers is committed to reducing fire-related crime, both around Bonfire Night and during the remainder of the year.

We are looking for your help

Please call 0800 55 111 if you know of anyone who has caused a de- liberate fire, or who has attacked Fire and Rescue Personnel. Callers are not asked for their name, or for any other means of identification. A caller’s number can not be traced and does not appear on itemised telephone state-

ments. We pass information to the Police but are not part of them and no police- man will ever know who has called us. In some cases, a successful prosecution may result in the informant being eligible for a cash reward.
