Rare images of Chester FC’s Sealand Road home after it’s closure in 1990 – Cheshire Live

Posted: October 31, 2019 at 11:46 pm

It's almost three decades since Chester City played their final game at Sealand Road.

A 2-0 win over Rotherham United in the penultimate game of the Barclays League Division Three season in front of 3,827 would bring down the curtain on over 80 years of football at the stadium, which hosted its first Chester game in December 1906.

Over the decades there were plenty of highs and lows.

It's hard to argue that the most famous night of all at the stadium, and indeed for Chester FC, came on Wednesday, November 12, 1974 when Leeds United, the champions of English football with a stellar line up were mercilessly put to the sword in the League Cup fourth round in front of 19,000 fans on a night that will forever be etched into Chester folklore, the Blues marching to the semi-finals before being beaten by Aston Villa.

Plenty of pictures of the old girl have been published over the years but we stumbled across some rare ones in the archives here at Cheshire Live as well as stills of the final ever game played at the stadium, which was filmed by lifelong Chester fan Jim Dutton.

Here are a selection.

Sealand Capital Galaxy (LON:SCGL) Will Have To Spend Its Cash Wisely – Simply Wall St

Posted: at 2:55 pm

Just because a business does not make any money, does not mean that the stock will go down. For example, although software-as-a-service business Salesforce.com lost money for years while it grew recurring revenue, if you held shares since 2005, youd have done very well indeed. But while the successes are well known, investors should not ignore the very many unprofitable companies that simply burn through all their cash and collapse.

So should Sealand Capital Galaxy (LON:SCGL) shareholders be worried about its cash burn? In this report, we will consider the companys annual negative free cash flow, henceforth referring to it as the cash burn. Well start by comparing its cash burn with its cash reserves in order to calculate its cash runway.

Check out our latest analysis for Sealand Capital Galaxy

A cash runway is defined as the length of time it would take a company to run out of money if it kept spending at its current rate of cash burn. As at June 2019, Sealand Capital Galaxy had cash of UK62k and no debt. Looking at the last year, the company burnt through UK478k. Therefore, from June 2019 it had roughly 2 months of cash runway. To be frank we are alarmed by how short that cash runway is! Depicted below, you can see how its cash holdings have changed over time.

In our view, Sealand Capital Galaxy doesnt yet produce significant amounts of operating revenue, since it reported just UK587k in the last twelve months. Therefore, for the purposes of this analysis well focus on how the cash burn is tracking. Wed venture that the 68% reduction in cash burn over the last year shows that management are, at least, mindful of its ongoing need for cash. Admittedly, were a bit cautious of Sealand Capital Galaxy due to its lack of significant operating revenues. So wed generally prefer stocks from this list of stocks that have analysts forecasting growth.

Theres no doubt Sealand Capital Galaxys rapidly reducing cash burn brings comfort, but even if its only hypothetical, its always worth asking how easily it could raise more money to fund further growth. Generally speaking, a listed business can raise new cash through issuing shares or taking on debt. Many companies end up issuing new shares to fund future growth. By looking at a companys cash burn relative to its market capitalisation, we gain insight on how much shareholders would be diluted if the company needed to raise enough cash to cover another years cash burn.

Sealand Capital Galaxys cash burn of UK478k is about 21% of its UK2.3m market capitalisation. Thats fairly notable cash burn, so if the company had to sell shares to cover the cost of another years operations, shareholders would suffer some costly dilution.

Even though its cash runway makes us a little nervous, we are compelled to mention that we thought Sealand Capital Galaxys cash burn reduction was relatively promising. After looking at that range of measures, we think shareholders should be extremely attentive to how the company is using its cash, as the cash burn makes us uncomfortable. While we always like to monitor cash burn for early stage companies, qualitative factors such as the CEO pay can also shed light on the situation.

We aim to bring you long-term focused research analysis driven by fundamental data. Note that our analysis may not factor in the latest price-sensitive company announcements or qualitative material.

Bloodied stab victim collapsed on Texaco garage floor while the other ‘bought beer and energy drinks’ – Daily Post

Posted: at 2:55 pm

The boss of a petrol station has spoken of how two bloodied stab victims took refuge in his store before one collapsed with serious injuries .

Sandosh Nandakumar, who manages the Texaco garage on Sealand Road, said the victims of a stabbing in Garden City , Flintshire, drove to his garage before one called out for an ambulance.

He then collapsed on the floor - while the other bought beers and energy drinks.

Mr Nandakumar said: "At exactly 8.54pm a car pulled into our site and they stopped near the air machine with their side lights on.

"One guy was on the passenger side and the other guy was driving.

"They both got out from the car and while they were coming in the guy who was driving the car was asking the passenger 'there's no need to go inside' and that he would take him to hospital.

"The guy who was seriously injured he came inside and he asked the staff to call for an ambulance and then he just fell on the floor."

Mr Nandakumar said both had injuries to their faces but at first his staff were not sure whether the pair might just be drunk.

He said: "His friend had minor injuries and was bleeding from the side of his head and he was trying to lift his other friend who was bleeding all over the floor.

"He was telling him he will take him to the hospital and while this was happening he also bought beers and red bull for some reason.

"When the staff saw all the blood which was coming out from his stomach he dialled 999 and he called for an ambulance and for the police as well. "

Mr Nandakumar said police officers arrived and closed the shop immediately while the man was taken to hospital.

He added: "The police were talking to the guy who was seriously injured and he was telling them something about 'some black guy stabbed me', he was telling them something like that.

"It was closed until around 3am after the police left and none of the staff were allowed to leave until then.

"CSI came at around 12am."

Mr Nandakumar said the incident had been "very traumatic" for his staff.

North Wales Police are appealing for information following the incident, which took place near the entrance to Corus Steel in Garden City .

They said one of the victims sustained serious stab wounds and is currently being treated in hospital.

Two suspects, described as black males, made off on foot.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Kelly said: "This was a violent incident in which a man has suffered serious injuries.

"Our investigation is at an early stage and I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

"The public will see an increased police activity in the area as we carry out our enquiries."

Anyone with information has been asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference X153525.

Moshe Oved silver ring, rare British petrol pump globe and William Gladstone’s grandfather clock six auction highlights that caught bidders’ eyes in…

Posted: at 2:54 pm

A silver ring by Moshe Oved 3500 at Dreweatts.

It was not catalogued as such but this silver ring, above, modelled as a standing lion with a gold coloured mane is by Moshe Oved (1885-1958), the owner of the celebrated Bloomsbury antique shop, Cameo Corner.

It has the London hallmarks CC for 1969.

Oved famously modelled the first of a series of lost wax cast animal rings (a lamb) while sheltering in the basement of Cameo Corner during the Blitz. He later cast it from his own cuff-links after he learnt that a clients son had been killed in action.

Oved went on to make numerous rings, mostly in silver, but some in gold. They are hugely collectable and the lion is among the rarer models.

Offered for sale at Dreweatts in Newbury, Berkshire on October 23, it attracted huge interest at its estimate of just 30-50 but ultimately sold at 3500.

A British glass petrol pump globe for Dominion Motor Spirit Co Ltd 13,000 at Richard Edmonds Auctions.

For collectors of glass petrol pump globes, it is often those made by obscure brands that are hardest to find. This example, in exceptional condition, is fully stamped Webbs Crystal Glass Co. Ltd. London and property of Dominion Motor Spirit Co. Ltd. Returnable on Demand.

Dominion launched in 1923 but was quickly swallowed up by Sealand Petroleum Co. and then Shell-Mex and BP. By 1957 the Dominion name had disappeared from the forecourts.

Offered for sale by automobile specialists Richard Edmonds Auctions in Chippenham, Wiltshire on October 18 it doubled estimate at 13,000. The price is among the highest paid for a British petrol pump globe and akin to the sort of mighty sums bid for rarities made in the US.

A longcase clock by Benjamin Ratcliff that may have been owned by former British Prime Minister William Gladstone 2000 at Rogers Jones.

The Welsh Sale held by Rogers Jones in Cardiff on October 19 included this quirky eight-day longcase clock by Benjamin Ratcliff of Welshpool.

Its distinguishing feature is an unusual brass solar dial bearing Roman numerals and the maker's surname in prominent capitals.

An old label to the interior suggests it was previously owned by former British Prime Minister William Gladstone at his Flintshire estate Hawarden Castle. Estimated at 1000-2000, it sold at the top guide.

An 18th century banded agate ring with an intaglio thought to be 2nd century Roman 2700 at Pippa Deeley Auctions.

Out of favour for a generation, grand tour and ancient intaglios and cameos are enjoying a return to form. This 18th century banded agate ring sold for 2700 (estimate 100-200) at Pippa Deeley Auctions in Bodiam, East Sussex on October 19.

The intaglio was possibly 2nd century Roman: cut with two toga-wearing figures in conversation to the reverse was a four-character inscription.

A neo-rococo samovar from Russia c.1850 2230 at Barsby Auctions.

Although a form that became popular in Europe and the Middle East, the samovar (literally self-brewer) is most commonly associated with Russia where they have been popular since the 18th century. Many were made in the metalworking centre of Tula.

Russian authorship markedly changes the demand for a 19th century silver plated samovar. While many English examples now sell for relatively modest sums this neo-rococo model from Russia c.1850 took a surprise Aus$4200 (2230) at Barsby Auctions in Sydney, Australia on October 19.

Oil on board of a women with a lily by David Carr from c.1950 3300 at Sworders.

The Modern British and 20th Century Art at Sworders in Stansted Mountfitchet on October 22 included this oil on board portrait by David Carr (1915-68). Estimated at 200-300 it made a much more substantial 3300.

Although born into the Carlisle biscuit-making family of the same name, Carr has a strong link to East Anglia. Both he and his future wife Barbara Gilligan were both members of The East Anglian School of Painting (founder Cedric Morris painted them together in a portrait that is now in the Tate Gallery collection) and the couple later moved to Starston Hall in Harleston, Norfolk.

Although little regarded in his lifetime, he was the subject of exhibitions in 1969 at the Bertha Shaeffer Gallery in New York, in 1987 at the Mayor Gallery (when the monograph David Carr, the Discovery of an Artist was published) and in 1997 when his work was shown alongside that of friend Prunela Clough at Austin Desmond Fine Art.

On stylistic grounds this oil on board of a women with a lily, 21in x 13in (54 x 32cm), signed bottom left, probably dates from c.1950.

Only a handful of pictures have made more, including a wartime scene Over Queen Victoria Street, London, 1941 selling for 3400 at Chiswick Auctions in 2018.

Appeal launched over refusal of plans to store cars and caravans on green barrier land in Sealand – Deeside.com

Posted: October 20, 2019 at 4:42 am

Published: Monday, Oct 14th, 2019

An appeal has been launched after plans for caravans and cars to be stored on an area of green barrier land in Deeside were refused.

A retrospective planning application was entered by Russell Brown earlier this year to gain permission to continue keeping vehicles at the back of a property known as Hyperion House on Deeside Lane in Sealand.

In documents submitted to Flintshire Council, Mr Brown said he had used the site for storing cars awaiting export from the UK for a number of years, as well as a place for people to leave their caravans during the winter.

However, the local authority turned down his bid to formally authorise the use of the land as it said it represented inappropriate development which would harm the openness of the area.

Officials also said he failed to carry out a flood consequences assessment, but Mr Brown has now launched an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to try and have the decision overturned.

In the appeal forms, an agent acting on his behalf said the building the site sits next to had been used for industrial purposes for many years and the proposals would have a minimal impact.

Bob Dewey said:The development provides an opportunity to provide a beneficial use of a piece of underused brownfield land without causing any harm to the area.

The council simply relies on general reasons for refusal which are not supported by any reasonable evidence.

The site is located within an area of mixed industrial and commercial developments, some of which have planning permission.

To treat this site in a more draconic manner is unhelpful to the economic life of the community.

There seems little evidence in the decision of a reflective approach to the wider good of the area.

The appeal will be heard by an inspector appointed by the Welsh Government at a later date.

Coleg Cambria volunteers clean-up streets and rivers of Deeside for community event – Wales247

Posted: at 4:42 am

VOLUNTEERS from Coleg Cambria took part in a clean-up of streets and rivers in north east Wales.

The Big Dee Day saw more than 50 work-based learning staff from the college spend hours tidying up areas of Deeside.

Focusing on the River Dee, they picked up litter, pulled up weeds and dragged plastic bottles and other items out of the water.

During two shifts, the volunteers spruced up parts of Saltney, Sandy Lane, Broughton and Sealand.Their incredible efforts saw more than two kilometres of riverbank and cycle paths cleared, 40 bin bags filled and a new access route to Chester from Saltney opened.

Organised by Flintshire County Council, the Big Dee Day has been a key date in the calendar since 2007, covering the coastline and tributaries from Talacre to Chester, Llangollen and north Shropshire.

Cambrias Assistant Principal and Director of Employer Services Vicky Barwis said their team worked hard to make a difference on the day.

We do a lot of work in the community but wanted to increase that and theres no bigger project locally than this, said Ms Barwis.

The amount of litter and plastic we picked up over the course of the day was shocking, and highlights what a horrendous issue this is globally.

We would encourage more people to get involved and support the council and Flintshires Countryside Rangers in their fight to make the county greener and cleaner and are glad we could play a part in that.

It is estimated more than 12 million tonnes of plastic, from bottles and bags to microbeads end up in our oceans every year, and the River Dee, its estuary, riverbanks and marshes have the potential to capture a significant amount.

In Flintshire, hundreds of people take part in the Big Dee Day every year, working hard to clear rubbish from the river embankments and beaches, collecting hundreds of bags of litter as well as targeting special places along the River Dees banks, coast and catchment area.

Their efforts are coordinated by the Countryside Rangers, who take the opportunity to work with many community groups, schools and numerous businesses including Tesco, Airbus, Kingspan, ENI, and others.

Cllr Carolyn Thomas, Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Countryside Services, said: The River Dee and its estuary is a marine environment of regional, national and international importance and it is vital that we all understand the threats it faces from waste materials, particularly plastic, and what we can do to combat those threats.

The Big Dee Day is dedicated to highlighting the magnificent, but fragile marine environment of the River Dee and the need for it be respected, valued and protected.

Almost 800 drivers caught by new boundary road speed camera in three months – The Chester Standard

Posted: August 16, 2017 at 6:41 pm

Almost800drivers have been caught by an average speed camera in the three months since its installation.

Figures released to the Leader by a Freedom of Information request have revealed that since a 130,000 camera was installed on the A548 Sealand Road in April, 796 motorists have been identified as going beyond the 50mph speed limit.

The camera was installed on the busy road following a decade-long battle for increased road safety measures.

In a bid to curb the number of accidents on the stretch of road, the system operates over a four-kilometre stretch of the A548, from the existing 50mph speed limit east of Manor Road to the county boundary with Cheshire.

The scheme was the first of its kind to be installed in North Wales and was put in place in partnership by Flintshire Council and road safety organisation GoSafe.

Figures revealed to the Leader by North Wales Police identified that of the 796 drivers caught speeding, 158 have received a fixed penalty of 100 fine and three points on their licence.

A further 152 drivers have undergone a speed awareness course while 34 have been processed for court hearings.

Of the total caught, 32 were unable to be identified while 13 were discontinued.

Officers still have 407 cases yet to be processed.

Cllr Christine Jones was one of many to push for greater speed restraints on Sealand Road and was shocked by the figures released.

She said: I knew it was a lot but that's immense.

That proves that the camera was needed and that the campaign was necessary.

It shows that if you speed, you will be prosecuted and this is what needs pointing out.

The camera is there for a reason because of the tragedies we've had previously.

Studies carried out by the local authority identified the majority of the accidents have been shown to be speed related.

The system measures average speeds over the route and fixed penalty notices will be issued if vehicles are found to be exceeding the speed limit along the route.

Cllr Jones added that as a regular user of the road, she had noticed a change in behaviour from some motorists since the camera's installation.

I think people are behaving better now, she said.

You don't see people overtaking as much any more, which was a ridiculous and dangerous practise.

Imagine how many people were speeding before this, it proves our campaign was correct.

Adam Dandy, who runs Dandys Topsoil business on Sealand Road, backed the cameras installation and was disappointed to learn of so many flouting the limit.

He said: Just imagine how many people were speeding before the cameras were put up.

Hopefully those caught since, will slow down on the road in future, making it safer and safer as time goes by.

I am more convinced, now than ever, that these cameras will save numerous families from going through the grief and pain of losing a loved one in the future.
