COMMUNITIES across the country are being urged to help celebrate their 'local heroes' who have taken a stand against vandals, thugs and noisy neighbours, Home Office Minister Hazel Blears announced today. 

This year's 'Taking A Stand Awards', in partnership with Crime Concern will recognise individuals and local groups who have shown commitment and bravery in tackling problems in their communities such as vandalism, nuisance neighbours, graffiti, harassment, intimidation and rubbish dumping. 

Ms Blears said:- “The anti-social behaviour of a minority of the community can ruin neighbourhoods and destroy people's quality of life. The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, with measures such as the closure of crack houses and dispersal of intimidating groups, sends out a strong message that anti-social behaviour will be tackled not tolerated. 

We want to reward those people who are saying enough is enough. The stories of last year's award winners are an inspiration to others and I would like to see as many nominations as possible for this year's Awards."

Nominations are called for from individuals and community groups for the 2004 awards, the second year of the scheme. The overall winner will receive £5,000 and the additional 100 winners £1,000 to further fund their projects. 


Caribbean cruise ship success For Liverpool John Lennon Airport

WITH only a handful of seats remaining on P&O Cruises’ first flight transfer from Liverpool John Lennon Airport direct to Barbados in the Caribbean in November, the Cruise Specialist has now chosen to operate four transfers from Liverpool for their 2005/06 season. 

Sailings all commence from Barbados onboard either the luxurious Arcadia or Oceana cruise ships with prices per person starting from £2,099 for a 15 night cruise. However passengers who book before 31 August 2004 can save up to 45% off the full brochure price.

The four direct flights from Liverpool give passengers the ability to choose between the following cruises:- Calypso Isles, Panama and Mexico Riviera, Calypso Isles and Dixieland and Caribbean Gold, with departure dates spread between November 2005 and March 2006. 

P&O Cruises launched their first Caribbean cruise transfer direct from Liverpool John Lennon Airport in August last year and seats soon sold quickly as the region’s holidaymakers took advantage of the hassle free benefits and convenience of starting their cruise holiday from their local airport.

P&O Cruises’ Senior Sales Manager Craig Freeman commented:- “We have been delighted with the uptake in our cruise transfer flight from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. P&O Cruises tested the market from Liverpool by launching our first flight last year and the response has been so positive that we have decided to grow the program from here for next season”

Vic Brodrick, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Commercial Director added:- “We are particularly pleased that this niche specialist market has sold well from Liverpool. The Airport is continually aiming to grow the choice and range of departures and whilst a small part of our overall business, the growth in the luxury cruise programme highlights the progress made in recent years for Liverpool John Lennon Airport to serve the needs of a wide range of the region’s holiday makers. The Airport looks forward to continuing to work with P&O Cruises and making next season even more successful”
