MENSA ARE COMING
TO LIVERPOOL - TAKE THE IQ CHALLENGE...
MENSA is offering the
people of Liverpool a chance to find out their IQ score and to see
if they too can join 23,000 other members of The High IQ Society.
A supervised IQ test session has been organised on Saturday 13
August 2011 (2.00pm) at the Britannia Adelphi Hotel for anyone
interested in finding out their own IQ score for just £17.50.
To reserve a place on the test you can book online by visiting the
IQ Test section of the Mensa
website. Alternatively you can contact
Helen Oliver on:- 01902 772 771 or
email for more information.
Everyone who scores within the top two per cent of the population is
invited to join Mensa.
Chris Tyler, Chairman of British Mensa, says:- ‘there are a
variety of reasons why people take the IQ test, whether it is simply
curiosity or as a challenge, but many people are pleasantly
surprised by their IQ score. A high IQ can also be beneficial when
applying for university or for progression in the job market; it can
make you stand out as a candidate.’
Mensa currently has 1,950 members in the North West region and 156
members in Liverpool. The society welcomes people from all walks of
life, with the objective of enjoying each other’s company and
participating in a range of social and cultural activities.
The society’s aims are to provide a stimulating intellectual and
social environment for its members; to identify and foster human
intelligence for the benefit of humanity; and to encourage research
into the nature, characteristics and uses of intelligence.

HELPS SECURE SOUTHPORT FC’S FUTURE
NORTH West law firm Hill
Dickinson has helped advise Southport Football Club of the Blue
Square Bet Premier on a Football Association appeal that could have
threatened its place in the Conference Premier Division. The
appeal had been brought by Rushden and Diamonds FC, who had been
expelled from the Conference over their well publicised financial
troubles. The move saved Southport from being relegated from the
Conference Premier Division.
The appeal was due to take place on July 5 but was dropped when
Rushden and Diamonds withdrew at the last minute. The club is
currently in administration. Southport FC were concerned that
the appeal may have threatened their place in the Conference Premier
Dominic McGinn and Heather Banner of Hill Dickinson were brought in
by the club's Directors to lobby for the club to put its case before
the FA appeal panel. The club’s position is now secure and both the
board and the team can look forward to the new season.
Dominic McGinn, a partner in Hill Dickinson’s commercial litigation
team, said:- “We were brought in to give Southport FC advice
ahead of an FA appeal which could have had serious implications for
the club and the fans. We are delighted for the club that it
can now start planning for a new season in the Conference Premier
Charlie Clapham, Chairman of Southport FC, said:- "It was a
tense time waiting for the outcome of the appeal. It would have been
a huge disappointment to the club and our fans if our place in the
league had been taken away at the eleventh hour, not to mention the
financial impact of being relegated after all of our plans were in
place for the season.
We are grateful to Dominic McGinn and Heather Banner in the dispute
resolution team at Hill Dickinson for the urgent advice they
provided to the club and the steps they took to protect Southport's
interests as far as possible in the whole matter. We are now looking
forward to an exciting season ahead."
