The Eulogy by Michael’s nephew

My Uncle Michael James Cedric Radclyffe was born on the 4th. of April 1935 in The Bridge House, Bridge Street, Chepstow. He was the youngest of 3 children born to Doris and Briavels Radclyffe. He had a sister Heather and a brother Gordon.

He was educated at Chepstow Primary School (where Stuart Crystal used to be). He then went to Lydney Grammar School, whilst there he had a cricket trial for Somerset. They then changed the boundaries so he then joined Gordon at Monmouth Boys School; he was very keen on any sport. Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Boxing and Cross Country were amongst the events he took part in. Michael was also a keen chess player and had trophies to prove it. Golf was also an enjoyable pastime of Michael’s.

He left school and joined the sports staff on the Bristol Evening News, where he was good at tipping horses.
His father was called up during the 2nd. World War, so Michael came back to Chepstow to work in the family veg shop in Bridge Street.

He was then called up himself and joined the RAF in 1953, he was Coxswain in the Air Sea Rescue Costal Command, and he travelled the world in his 22 years, taking in the four home countries, the Far East, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon and the Maldives.

Whilst being posted to RAF Mountbatten in Plymouth he met Renee a local service WRAF and they married in September 1964, they had 3 children, Christopher, Geraldine and Annette. Further postings included Scotland and 3 happy years in Cyprus with his family.

On leaving the RAF he was the Manager of a hotel in Alness, Scotland. They then later moved back to Plymouth where Michael was Mess Manager in the Sargeants Mess at Mountbatten. He then decided to work for himself as a painter and decorator.

When his mother died in 1980 the family moved to Chepstow to live in The Bridge House to care for his father, he opened a clock and brass shop in Bridge Street, the same one he had sold fruit and veg in, so he had come full circle.

The family moved to Bulwark in 1988, after the death of his father.

Michael had 8 grandchildren: Darryl, Cameron, Cally, Robson, William, Franchesca, Chloe and Ammon. Four years ago Michael discovered he had a daughter, Jan, who is the eldest of his children.

His grandchildren follow him with the love of sport. When he retired he kept his brain active by doing quizzes, crosswords and backing horses, woe betide anyone who came to the house and didn’t know the capitals of any country, he could recite any Derby winners back to 1954.

Michael loved to write poetry, often he sent examples of his poems to the local newspapers with a select few making it into print. He also liked to write letters to prominent people, he even wrote to the Duke of Edinburgh, enclosing photographs of China Bay when the Queen & Duke visited there. He always received replies and he kept them all in a special folder.

Michael was a great host in his younger years and would talk to anyone. He loved to play silly games such as ‘Snatch The Penny’ and was very competitive in this game! His ‘side step’ was also a great amusement to him as long as he caught you out.

Michael loved a bargain and would haggle to get the price down, which made him a great market trader in his day at Chepstow Market.

Michael was the sort of character you wouldn’t forget in a hurry, he will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him and he is now at peace.

Hi,

Jobs boost for Chepstow

Thursday, 13 October 2016 in Local People

A LEADING UK designer and engineer of aluminium building systems, AluK, is relocating its headquarters to Chepstow with the promise of new jobs and investment for the area.

Monmouthshire County Council’s chief executive, Paul Ma­tthews said: “The multi-million pound invest-ment at the Newhouse Industrial Estate follows three years of substantial growth in the UK market. I am really impressed by the AluK’s vision and values, and welcome its decision to invest in this region. It is a real coup for us and I look forward to a strong relationship.”

The new facility is at a site formerly owned by Mabey Group. AluK’s managing director, Russell Yates, said: “Our decision to come to this larger site in Chepstow is essential for our growth. It will increase assembly and production capacity, support innovations in product designs and technology, deliver essential training, showcase products and provide much-needed warehousing and office space.

“Over the past three years we have outgrown our facilities in Newport and the Newhouse site means we can now invest in new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant and create more jobs. We have offered everyone in Newport the chance to come to Newhouse and we will create new jobs as well, so it’s an exciting opportunity for us and the south Wales region.

IN MEMORIAM:
Adam Lawson DALL
of Chepstow, born in Dunfermline, Fife

dell-adam-funeral-01

Adam Dall was born in Dunfermline on 22nd. June 1949 & died at his & Eileen’s home in central Chepstow on Monday 05-Sep-2016 having made his long term partner, of 29 years standing, Eileen Bishop a last cup of tea!

dell-adam-funeral-02

Adam will be missed as one of the characters who had lived in central Chepstow for many years and was well known to many, he will be particularly missed by Eileen and the many with whom he socialised – he also leaves daughters of a marriage which ended many decades ago.

Adam had as a younger man been a high wire hanger in the power industry before ‘grounding himself’ for safety reasons aged 58, having broken his knee.

dell-adam-funeral-04

Adam was a hard working specialist who worked for power companies, not just in Britain, but across the Continent when he worked on cables he was hard working & highly skilled. After his accident he worked when able and was an ethical and hardworking labourer with considerable stamina and strength.

THE TRIBUTE TO ADAM

by: Eileen Bishop’s daughter Michelle English

A humble man who never asked for anything

Adam Lawson Dall was born on 22nd June 1949 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.

Bought up in a hardworking Scottish family to father Peter who was a ship builder and worked for the MOD and mother Jessie who looked after the family and later ran a pub. Adam had a brother John and two sisters Nancy & Karen (Nancy sadly passed away 6 weeks ago) Karen and her husband Malcolm are here with us today along with his niece Wendy, Adam also had two daughters Louise and Collette from a previous relationship.

Adam attended Cross Gates primary school , then moved on to high school at Cowdenbeath , he loved cross country running and was fantastic at football but his eye sight let him down and could not continue to play. When he was younger his mum Jessie loved to feed Adams healthy appetite, when he used to come home from school his mum would sit him in front of the tele with his plate on a stool but with Adams eyesight being so poor he would sit real close to the tele, he was forever shouted at to move because no one else could see the tele because his plate was plied so high (he still had that healthy appetite, which Eileen loved feeding too)

Adam was already showing signs of being a hard working lad when he used to go swede and potato picking with his mum Jessie, one of his first jobs was delivering fruit and veg around Scotland.

Adam started his overhead Pylon career in 1967 when he went to work for Eve’s construction with his uncle Winnie. In the early 70,s Adam worked all over Europe, in Holland & Germany to name but two places, he was a man’s man and loved the banter with the boys he worked with whilst away but whenever he returned home to Scotland he would bring his mum Jessie little presents, windmills, clogs, and ornaments of the places he had been, he loved her dearly.

Adam worked for various companies over the years, Hawker Sidley was the main company he worked for. He was known by many in the trade, and he worked locally too and worked in Lydney and on the Severn bridge, there will be many of you here today that he worked with and had a laugh with however one person he worked a lot with was Jock.

Jock first met Adam in 1984. One thing each and every one of you here today will know Adam for was his sense of humour, he just had a way of making people Laugh, with the things he came out with, Jock can recall one particular day when they were travelling down the M5 to Cornwall, Adam was in the passenger seat and all of a sudden he started waving and cheering at a lorry beside them, Jock said Adam who are you waving at?… to Jocks surprise he was waving at the John Smiths Lorry driver!  He turned to Jock and said seriously ‘you better slow down and let him get to Cornwall before us’ -Adam loved a pint!

Adam met Eileen in 1987 when she was working in the Castle Inn in Chepstow, he asked her for a drink to the 3 tuns just across the road! It was from there their friendship first grew, Adam was looking for lodgings and Eileen said he could rent her spare room …….he never left! They had 29 years together, they had their ups and downs like most couples however they got through everything as a team, and there was certainly more laughter than tears, plenty of love and deep respect for one another.

They made friends with many of you during these years as they socialised round the town when Adam came home on weekends after working away. You may have met him in any of the pubs in Chepstow , most recently he enjoyed a pint of bitter with friends in Wetherspoons .

Adam’s working Career ended when he was 58 , there was nothing pre planned, fancy or glamorous about his retirement, whilst working away he fell out of his caravan in the middle of the night and broke his knee, he swore blind he was sober…..(Eileen knew otherwise).

Adam was a generous man and he would always come home with something for Eileen, a packet of sweets, a custard slice, or just some strawberries. He would always care about others around him and would give you his last penny if you needed it.

Adam had a special bond with Michelle and Damon who both thought the world of him , Damon would have the odd beer with Adam and he would always offer Damon some advice , Damon looked up to him and respected him. Michelle’s love for Adam grew over the years as he cared for Eileen and looked after her. They all spent time together birthdays and Christmas especially, Christmas mornings were always good fun and lots of laughter, Damon would take hats for them all to wear, the year before last Michelle got Adam his own tele and sky TV put in the Man cave as he called it! He was thrilled to bits no more watching soaps!

Adam was an intelligent man and spent a lot of time doing crosswords, he loved listening to the radio and music, he loved to watch programs about history and nature, but most of all his passion was Sport. He loved all sport, Rugby, football, snooker, Golf, darts and F1 to name a few, and recently watched the Olympics, he could often be heard shouting at the tele, cheering or swearing, Eileen used to smile, he was happy, that made her happy .

Adam died suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday 5th September in his own home, he will be remembered, amongst other things, for his sense of humour, for being humble, loyal, honest, hardworking and for loving his friends and family, he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.

Taking A Dive @ Chepstow Castle

Hi,

Now THAT’S a high dive! Daredevil Olympic diver leaps into a river from a 85ft high CASTLE 

  • Blake Aldridge, 34, couldn’t resist the challenge of conquering the 11th century Chepstow Castle 
  • He dived head first into the River Wye – from a height which is an equivalent of six double-decker buses 
  • The diver competed alongside Tom Daley in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the 10m synchronised final

A former Olympic diver took on the biggest feat of his career when he leapt into a river from a 85ft high castle wall.

Blake Aldridge, 34, couldn’t resist the challenge of conquering the 11th century Chepstow Castle – diving head first into the River Wye – a height equivalent of six double-decker buses.

Despite the stomach churning drop, it posed no problems for the British athlete, who pulled off an enviable performance, as seen in these awe-inspiring images.

Awesome sight: Blake Aldridge, 34, leapt from the 11th century castle wall into the River Wye which is 85ft down

Blake has kept his form and fitness since competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics with Tom Daley

The 34-year-old chose Chepstow Castle in South Wales for the feat

 

Shape: Blake has kept his form and fitness since competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics with Tom Daley

Head first: Although now 34, which would be regarded as a veteran age in diving, Blake is still competiting in the sport

Head first: Although now 34, which would be regarded as a veteran age in diving, Blake is still competiting in the sport

Blake said: ‘It’s absolutely amazing, it’s death-defying.

‘You’re jumping off something you shouldn’t jump off and fighting against every instinct in your body that says don’t do it.

‘That’s the beauty of cliff diving. We only need a high take-off spot with a stretch of water below to showcase our sport.’

Blake famously competed alongside partner Tom Daley in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but they fell out after finishing eighth in the 10m synchronised final.

He then turned his career to cliff diving and will this weekend take part in the 2016 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

He’ll be competing alongside two other British athletes, reigning champion Gary Hunt and wildcard diver Mat Cowen, fighting for a British victory. 

Next step: The diver is now to compete alongside two other British athletes, reigning champion Gary Hunt and wildcard diver Mat Cowen, in the 2016 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Hi,

Independent business owners in Chepstow slam town council for ‘not supporting local traders’

ANGRY: Chepstow town trader Dawn Floyd thinks more should be done for local businesses in the town

ANGRY: Chepstow town trader Dawn Floyd thinks more should be done for local businesses in the town

17 Aug 2016 / Alice Rose 

TWO independent Chepstow businesses have said their town council needs to do more to raise the profile of the high street and support local traders.

Dawn Floyd, one of the owners of St Mary’s St Collectables on St Mary Street, was the first business to raise her concern for local businesses after feeling that councillors don’t come round often enough to discuss issues with them.

Mrs Floyd said she feels strongly about the town centre as it is a small community with independent businesses who work hard, and believes more needs to be done to raise the profile of Chepstow.

She said: “We’ve got wonderful businesses here who are trying hard and working hard to keep on going.

“I can’t remember the last time I saw one of our town councillors coming round to see us all. They only have to walk round here and have a chat with the businesses, get a feel for it and see what’s missing.”

Fellow St Mary Street shop owner, Anne Reid, who runs Undy Yarn Crafts, said the town’s profile would be raised if there were more events taking place in the town centre.

“The events are always on the outskirts [of Chepstow] and there is nothing going on in the town centre,” Mrs Reid said.

“I agree the town council aren’t doing anything and I think they need to pedestrianise all of the town centre as it’s something they need to do to bring in more people to the centre.”

But the mayor of Chepstow, cllr Paul Pavia said the town council is always trying to be proactive and develop local businesses, as well as to bring tourism into Chepstow.

Cllr Pavia said: “We have close working links with Chepstow Chambers of Commerce and we have direct representation on the Chepstow marketing group but we always welcome constructive feedback from business owners on what we can do to support them and help improve trading conditions.

“We are currently in discussions with Monmouthshire County Council about the future of local services and are encouraging them to work with us to further engage businesses in the town, so that we can shape together the long-term future of the town to ensure it continues to flourish and prosper.”

The business complaints come as recent figures from the National Assembly of Wales show the amount of weekly shoppers visiting town centres has plummeted.

Data from the National Assembly of Wales shows that Abergavenny town centre lost 56 per cent of shoppers between 2005 and 2015, with Caldicot losing 29 per cent and Chepstow losing 10 per cent of its weekly shoppers.

Regarding the business complaints, head of economy and enterprise at Monmouthshire County Council Cath Fallon said: “The promotion of enterprise, economic development and job creation is a key priority for Monmouthshire County Council and we are aware of the issues that local businesses face, including retailers in our market towns.

“We strive to ensure that the public and private sector work together and work closely with business groups like the Chepstow Chamber of Commerce to ensure the county is an attractive place to do business.

“We are very happy to meet with individual businesses that would like to find out more about the support available to them.”

Pedestrianising Chepstow would of course be a catastrophic concept, in my opinion, having been in retail in Chepstow since 1981 and only eventually closing my shop largely due to the damage done to Chepstow, mostly by MCC with their tasteless degeneration scheme in the center of town, their lack of vision idiotic mismanagement and endless desire to turn the town into a cash cow for the rest of Monmouthshire, not to mention the growth of jobs in the Council and ever escalating costs!

When I first set out in retail in Chepstow all the retail properties were occupied, the only available shop being that owned by British Rail opposite the Post Office’s sorting office having had various shops in Station Road, Thomas Street, St. Mary Street and Upper Church Street – since then many have converted to non retail or to so called charity venues, not only heavily subsidised by the rate payers but in direct competition with many of them.

The ugly developement of the town center, costly as it was, degraded the town with its dead areas and concrete plinths with naff efforts to make it look like every other small town with matching street furniture and tasteless statuary, as with the unpleasant statue of a naked man sitting on a bidet.

The parking has been turned into an income source for MCC and one of the main carparks has had a grandiose and under utilised white elephant of a Council building erected, where previously it was not unusal to see at least a dozen tourist coaches parked – now those coaches bypass Chepstow and the few coaches that do visit tend to be school trips with small budgets!

The pedestrianisation of St. Mary’s Street was ill considered and led to the loss of a considerable number of retail shops, no longer able to sustain themselves, eventually we closed our shop as the footfall in the town collapsed from around 2000 onwards, if not a little earlier as parking restrictions and poorly though out developement took place.

The replacement of two large retail units with a down market venue offering beverage in a venue with all the character of an airport lounge with portion controlled microwaved food imported from some factory elsewhere, in St. Mary’s Street hugely damaged retail and also the trade of the many smaller character pubs, leading to some of them’s failure and a rush to move down market to attract habitual drunks by the remainder!

To pedestrianise Chepstow would be suicide, as it would require more parking in order that footfall would stand still, parking that would be occupied for even longer as people would take longer to complete brief, but profitable, stops to shop. That the town is on so steep a hill is, in itself, unhelpfull and additional pedestrianisation thus presents its own problems – the old style and welcome brief stop in the High Street to bank or draw cash, pick up a paper or a prescription, a quick sandwich or even load goods already purchased was a huge help to the town’s retail – the brief parking also helped to reduce the ambient speed of vehicles and made the town safer for pedestrians!

That Davis Court, which was initially planned to home young people who would make a vibrant contribution to the town financially soon became designated as a sheltered home for the elderly as they downsized did little to help!

We have lost so many draw card retail shops in central Chepstow and have gained little of merit – the character of the town has moved from its clear medieval layout and the Dickensian character of many of the buildings with their owner occupied residents above that not only drew shoppers but many more tourists and visitors and the residents above the shops created a community with an interest in the community and imposed a better standard of behaviour and language both day and night.

Sadly Chepstow has been greatly damaged, particularly since the close of the ’80s! Damage that has escalated in speed as both the footfall and caliber has collapsed. Chepstow in the 1980s had two thriving hardware merchants, and at one stage 3! Also a retail builders merchant in St. Mary Street with a supply yard in both Chepstow and Lydney, at various stages a retail green grocers, two butchers, four picture framers were in Chepstow and 7 antique dealers and a thriving monthly antique and general auction – with antique dealers, shippers and collectors being regular visitors to Chepstow on a daily basis all year round bringing trade, accomodation and catering needs to the town to replace the long established cattle market that had recently closed.

Then of course there were the various delicatessents and the retail/wholesale fish mongers at Bevans’, also there were two general elecrical shops and the electricity board shop, now we have a superfluity of pubs, coffee shops and betting establishments of out of town corporations that though they may provide a few jobs syphon the profits out of the area putting very little back.

The damage done to Chepstow in the past 25 years has been staggering be it a by-pass road that cuts the communitty in half and contributes greatly to Chepstow being 12th. on a nationwide list of polluted towns and cities. Chepstow is more polluted than Newport, Bristol, Swansea and Cardiff! Yet the number of those passing through Chepstow who stop and spend has greatly diminished – even those who live in the many houses built during the period in question largely use the town as a dormitory town.

Let us consider the bypass road for a moment which is all too frequently, and without warning, cloged with traffic crawling up Hardwick Hill belching pollutant and taking as much as an extra 40 minutes for the 3.1/2 mile journey between Larkfield and Stroat with dangerous intersections for Sedbury/Beachley and Bulwark – a badly designed road in the wrong place!

There were even efforts by the Town Council at one stage to destroy the town completely by building a new out of town retail center at New House but let us recall the advertising of Chepstow which can be found in old AA handbooks which defined Chepstow’s shopping center as being Bulwark as either the Clerk or Council worthies owned retail premises in Bulwark!

Chepstow has become a town where many do their shopping in larger centers where they work or online.

Neither Monmouth Council nor our own Town Council have done anything to constructively address the progress and developement of society and ran away from opportunities such as linkage with Cribbs Causeway; which draws clients from Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea, Hereford, Gloucester, Bridgewater, Taunton and the like; opportunities that were negotiated with the aid of our MPs in Monmouthshire and the Forest of Dean at the time – opportunities deliberately crushed by Monmouth Council, the Town Council and shamefully even the Chamber of Commerce; no doubt frightened at the prospect of their inadequacies being exposed.

Interestingly Cardiff, Broadmead and Hereford marketing saw the opportunities and attempted to assist the MPs and those acting in the interest of Chepstow and its peoples to seek to modernise and exploit the opportunities with sympatico, working with the then owners iof the Racecourse and members of The Chepstow Forum. Our own Council staff & elected officers, with personal vested interests, did all they could to sabotage any initiative between Chepstow and Cribbs Causeway’s management!

Dawn Floyd of St. Mary’s Street Collectables was right in her anger at being both neglected and abused by her public servants.

Dawn Floyd made the following additional comments on the issue:

Dawn Floyd, one of the owners of St Mary’s St Collectables on St Mary Street, said that trade in the town has been ‘dire’ all year.

Mrs Floyd, who has been trading locally for around 40 years, said: “While there have been signs of things picking up in the last few weeks, I feel this has been one of the worst years for business in Chepstow.

“The decline in footfall in obvious, and I don’t feel that the beautiful shops we have here get enough publicity for what they sell.

“I feel it needs something new, like an indoor market selling a variety of goods, to try and bring people back in.”

Mrs Floyd also added that the opening of Friars Walk, as well as ‘constant closures’ on the Severn Bridge, are ‘hurting’ the town.

Other Chepstow traders have commented regarding the central town’s problems as follows:

Chepstow, local traders have also voiced their concerns about problems in the town centre, notably parking.

Several shopworkers and residents remarked at the ‘unfair’ car parking sites surrounding the high street, which they feel ‘overcharge’ for short-stays.

A worker at the clothing shop Runway, who said she has worked in the town for more than 20 years, believes the situation in Chepstow is a ‘mixed one’.

She said: “You have really busy days and the next day you could be lucky to get any customers.

“Other aspects of the town centre such as the marker aren’t very well supported, it’s only got about five or six stalls.”

Sarah Young, who works at Poppy’s Plaice cafe, was in agreement saying that the thing letting Chepstow down was a ‘lack of variety’.

“The market has had a few interesting stalls in the past but they didn’t last long,” said Mrs Young.

“With the shops then we don’t even have a shoe shop anymore with Clarks closing down.

“It means that we’ve got no choice but to go to places like Newport or Bristol.”

Mrs Young also admitted that business at the cafe had ‘quietened down’ in recent weeks.

She said: “On one day this week I took just £17 for the entire day – that’s not going to pay my bills is it?

I have learned over more than 30 years of retail in Chepstow, that they have much interest in their own careers giving each other awards for their follies, as they spend our money – sadly it was ever thus – when last did any of those public servants have a real interest in the community let alone practical experience in retail and town center management, beyond theory!

The dishonesty and farce of developement in Chepstow by disconnected public servants was risible, with the degeneration scheme being imposed on Chepstow by an individual with no interest beyond his own gain as he lectured us on sustainability and Chepstow’s interests whilst commuting daily from Swansea, where he chose to live with his young family, never having lived in either Chepstow or a similar small ex-market town!

The destruction and pollution of Chepstow is likely to be hugely exacerbated by the ill advised 100s of houses due to be built on the Dendix site, the Fairfield site, Elmdale Road, Sedbury Junction  not to mention further 100s of new commuter homes scheduled in Lydney.

There is also the consideration of the industrialisation of the A48 with ribbon developement of unsightly, ecologically damaging, and largely useless, giant wind turbines CLICK HERE, shops, cafes and offices on the roadside, loss of agricultural land, further developement of Lydney docks area and there is even an application for a commercial golf driving range ajoining the A48!

The A48 between Chepstow & the Ouver roundabout is already classified as the most dangerous road in Europe!

All of these developements will lead to yet more traffic befouling, but not benefitting, Chepstow – there is every likelihood that Chepstow will grind to a complete halt for lack of forethought and accidents, in the relatively near future and that lung disease, cancers, heart disease, accidents and strokes could compete in a national league table of the immediate future due to the pollution!

Hi,

Slovakian swimwear model who murdered her British millionaire ex-boyfriend in Spain is sentenced to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay his family £150,000 compensation 

  • Mayka Kukucova, 26, shot jeweller Andrew Bush, 48, at his Spanish villa
  • She flew into rage after seeing him with his new, younger, Russian lover
  • Slovakian was sentenced today after being convicted by a jury last week
  • Ordered to pay his daughter Ellie £122,000 and his sister Rachel £30,500

Swimwear model Mayka Kukucova has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the murder of her British businessman ex-boyfriend Andrew Bush.

The Slovakian, 26, was also jailed for six months for breaking into his Costa del Sol home.

Judge Ernesto Carlos Manzano also ordered Kukucova to pay Mr Bush’s 21-year-old daughter Ellie £122,000 and his sister Rachel £30,500 to compensate their loss.

‘Murderous cow’: Swimwear model Mayka Kukucova has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the murder of her British businessman ex-boyfriend Andrew Bush

Infatuation: Kukucova dated the miilionaire jeweller – nicknamed the 'King of Bling' – for two and a half years after he gave her a job in one of his Gold Trader shops in Bristol

Kukucova was convicted of both crimes last Friday by a jury following a four-day trial. She could have been jailed for a maximum 22 years.

She shot Mr Bush dead on April 5, 2014 as he arrived at his villa near Estepona for a romantic break with his new, younger, Russian girlfriend Maria Korotaeva, 23.

Prosecutors said she was upset after the millionaire jeweller ended their two-and-a-half-year relationship in November 2013 and flew into a jealous rage after seeing him arrive with his new love.

The sentence was delivered by writing in a 17-page document.

The two years she has spent in custody since her arrest will be taken into account in determining her release date. 

The judge indicated he believed Mr Bush’s death was essentially a crime of passion by accepting as an extenuating circumstance that Kukucova had acted in a ‘passionate state of mind’.

But the judge said he was taking into account the fact she had no previous criminal record and had made a ‘heartbroken apology’ when she was given the right to a last court address after the unanimous 9-0 verdict by the jury.

Eduardo Martinez Martin, the lawyer for Mr Bush’s daughter and sister, said: ‘It is apparent the judge wanted to be magnanimous with her.

‘We were happy with the murder verdict, but were expecting a sentence closer to 20 years.’ 

Mr Bush’s ex-wife Sam Mason, Ellie’s mother, was not available for comment.

Kukukova’s defence lawyer Carlos Larranaga confirmed he would be appealing.

He said: ‘I disagree with the jury’s verdict. We accept this was a homicide but not a murder and we say there are circumstances which modify my client’s legal responsibility.’

The appeal, expected to argue Kukucova acted in legitimate self-defence and ‘insurmountable fear’ in line with her trial claim that Mr Bush attacked her first, will be lodged within the next ten days. 

It will be decided by judges in Granada. The British businessman’s convicted killer went on trial last Monday.

She insisted she never wanted to harm him but shot him during a fight after he attacked her and then threatened her with a gun.

He was shot three times, twice in the head and once in the shoulder, with a .38 revolver which the jury ruled she placed in his hand to make it appear he had committed suicide before fleeing the crime scene.

She drove off in his £60,000 Hummer which she abandoned nearby after telling Ms Korotaeva to get out of the vehicle ‘because Andrew had given her permission to take it to the airport.’

She was arrested days later and extradited to Spain to face charges after fleeing to her homeland with a boyfriend who answered her call for help and flew to Madrid to pick her up.

Ms Korotaeva, who testified at the trial, said she was outside the house when the shots went off after running out to the car when she saw Mr Bush’s ex waiting for them inside in her pyjamas.

Jurors decided Kukucova had reduced her victim’s chances of defending himself by gunning him down unexpectedly as he returned to his house after going out to his Hummer where Ms Korotaeva was waiting and trying to calm her down.

But they didn’t support Mr Martinez’s argument she had deliberately sought to increase Andrew Bush’s suffering, meaning Kukucova could not be sentenced to the maximum 25 years for murder under the Spanish penal code in force at the time of the crime.

Kukucova was portrayed in court as an immature obsessive who stalked her former boyfriend after he ended their relationship.   

After the guilty verdicts were announced last week, Mr Bush’s ex-wife, Sam Mason, savaged Kukucova for the damage she had caused.

She tweeted: ‘Twenty years for the murderous cow. Hope she rots. At no stage has she apologised to my girl. Blaming Andy, low life scum.’  

Speaking to the Mirror, she said: ‘I’m so glad this long, arduous journey is finally over. My heart is with our darling daughter, my brother, sister and mother-in-law.

‘No sentence would be enough for the complete devastation she has caused our family.’

The former BBC Bristol presenter tweeted on Thursday a photo of herself and Mr Bush after giving birth to Ellie now aged 21.

She said: ‘Daddy and daughter. How can any1 ruin this? Verdict tomoz. My dear girl,no daddy. Heartbroken forever.’ 

Speaking after the trial, Mr Bush’s daughter, Ellie Mason-Bush, vowed to do everything she can to make her father proud.

She said after Kukucova was found guilty she visited his grave in Spain and told him: ‘We’ve done it for you dad… we’ve finally got justice for you.’

But Miss Korotaeva said she felt sorry for the murderer, who she faced in court for the first time since that shocking night in 2014.

‘She was sobbing the whole time, she has actually started to believed her own lies. She has lost everything and I pity her,’ she told The Sun on Sunday. 

She said the model had changed so much that she couldn’t believe it was her when the pair’s eyes met.

‘She was beautiful but now she is fat and has spots on her face. I looked at her and thought ‘just let her go home’.’

Now the family are just left to rue the day the jeweller set eyes on the seductive swimwear model four years ago.

He gave Kukucova a job in one of his Gold Trader Shops in Bristol – and she struck gold.

Just 22 years old, she was less than half the age of the loan shark pawn broker, who was known to his customers as the ‘King of Bling’. 

But their relationship quickly became turbulent as she threw tantrums, flew into jealous rages and constantly checked his computer and mobile phone. 

When he dumped her – and began dating an even younger model – she spiralled out of control, shooting him dead at his Spanish villa.

Mr Bush was never a man to keep a low profile. 

The former body builder, who worked out with a personal trainer twice a week, wore designer labels and had a permanent tan, lived in the sleepy Welsh market town of Chepstow.

But his five-bedroom home, which he bought in 2002 for £320,000 near Chepstow racecourse in rural Monmouthshire, was not discreet. 

It was surrounded by a seven-feet high wall, had electronic gates, reinforced steel shutters on all the windows and doors, security cameras and even Rottweiler guard dogs.

On paper Bush did not appear to be a millionaire. 

He officially had four businesses but three of them were dormant and his only trading company Bigwig Enterprises barely broke even. His 2013 accounts showed profits of £21,040.

However, according to news reports, two of his shops in Bristol were targeted by armed raiders, who made off with £500,000 in jewellery and diamonds. 

Ellie Mason-Bush, 21, said after her father's ex-flame was found guilty of murdering her father she visited his grave in Spain and told him: 'We've done it for you dad... we've finally got justice for you'

He always walked around town with a couple of minders.

He also had a fleet of expensive cars – including a red convertible Ferrari and a grey Lamborghini – as well as a top-of-the-range Hummer, which he kept at his Spanish villa in the seaside village of Cancelada, on the coastal strip near Malaga once known as the Costa del Crime. 

Spanish police say he did not have a criminal record. 

During the 1990s, he met Ms Mason, a news presenter for ITV’s HTV channel in Bristol, who was two years his junior.

They had daughter Ellie in 1994. The couple split up a few years after her birth but remained friends. She has now moved to Yorkshire.

It was after they separated that Bush developed a penchant for younger women: he began dating Kukucova, his sales assistant in 2012 but the relationship was far from smooth-sailing. 

His daughter Ellie, who worked part-time for her father, says that Kukucova was ‘extremely insecure’ and ‘could not control her anger’ – she was even jealous of his relationship with his daughter.

‘She was always worried about him being with other women,’ Ellie told the Mail on Sunday in an interview after his death. ‘He couldn’t leave the shop to get a coffee without her following him. She would check his computers as soon as he walked away and go through his phone all the time.’

Her erratic behaviour began to seriously worry his family when they visited Dubai in September that year to celebrate Ellie’s 18th birthday.

On one occasion she threw a temper tantrum in a Dubai shopping mall. ‘We were out shopping and there were loads of things Mayka wanted to buy,’ said Ellie. ‘But Andy said: ‘No.’ She went into a blind rage, screaming, and threw a handbag at him.

‘She did it purposely to hurt him and then stormed off. We didn’t see her for a few hours. It was a common thing.’ 

Towards the end of the holiday, she even destroyed Bush’s laptop. ‘She stamped all over it,’ said his sister Rachel, who also worked in his shops. ‘Then she put it underneath a tap and put it back in the case.

‘When we got back to England, Andy realised but he tried to ignore it. He thought he could change her. Mayka cannot control her anger. 

‘She was like a little child. It was regular behaviour every time we were together.

‘I was in hospital once and she pretended that the taxi crashed on the way so that everyone was asking if she was OK when she got there. But there was no taxi crash. 

‘She has to be the main attraction.’ 

Kukucova was even jealous of his relationship with his family – she told his sister that she was ‘jealous that Andy has got a daughter’ and she removed all the family photographs from his house.

‘I said to Andy: ‘Where have the pictures gone?’,’ said Rachel. ‘She had taken them. She’s not stable.’

In September 2013, Kukucova went even further: Bush arrived at his house to find her handcuffed with a pillow over her head. She claimed that she had been overpowered by armed burglars.

Police were called but there was no appeal for witnesses, no description of the gang and no Crimewatch reconstruction. The family suspected her from the outset because the alleged robbery took place shortly after the couple had rowed – Kukucova had hid his passport to stop him going to the Middle East on business.

‘The robbery came at a time when their relationship was basically over,’ added Ellie. ‘She was psychotic. I said to her: ‘You’re mental. You need to be locked up.’

‘She suddenly became very clingy and would say: ‘Oh, Andy, I can’t sleep at night, I’m so scared.’ It was all very strange. She was the only person in the house when it happened.’

The following month, the couple finally broke up but Kukucova did not take the split well. She posted a series of videos on YouTube featuring the couple kissing and hugging – including screen grabs of loving text messages they had exchanged set to Celine Dion music. She implored her ex-lover to ‘forget everything bad’ saying: ‘Days without you don’t have meaning’ and ‘Let’s be together forever.’

But by Christmas she had been replaced in Bush’s affections by Maria Korotaeva, a Russian student he met at a branch of Costa Café in Bristol. She was a human resources student at the University of the West of England, who was just a year older than his daughter.

By then Bush had taken out a restraining order against his ex-lover but Maria believes that she was still tracking him after finding the Find my Friends app on his mobile phone. 

‘I saw the App because I would often use his phone, but he had no idea what it was,’ she said in an interview with The Sun after his death. 

‘The email address used to activate it wasn’t his. The only explanation is that she set it up when they were together. Andy told me to delete it, so I did.’

It is Maria’s photographs on Facebook and Instagram of the couple together which, police believe, pushed Kukucova over the edge. 

She found her opportunity when the couple decided to have a romantic getaway to celebrate their fifth month anniversary at his Spanish villa.

On the way to Bristol airport, Bush presented Maria with a £10,000 diamond ring, saying he wanted to discuss ‘something important’ that night. But, the conversation never took place.

When they arrived at the villa in the early hours of April 5, 2014, laughing and ‘talking about how much we loved each other’, they were greeted by his spurned lover, who was lying in wait.

‘As soon as Andy switched on the lights I knew there was something wrong,’ Maria added. ‘There were bras and knickers hanging on a clothes rack in the entrance. My heart started thumping — I had a feeling someone was in the house. 

‘I followed Andy in and there was a suitcase on the floor with a pair of stilettos inside. I turned and went upstairs. When I got to the top I could see her. She looked calm and stayed very still, like a rock.

‘The image will haunt me for life. She stood there, staring at me. She had her hair down and was wearing pyjamas — tiny shorts and a little flimsy vest top. I could just see her silhouette. I screamed and ran out of the house.’

New model: Bush split with Kukucova in October 2013. By Christmas, he and Maria were an item, but the Russian, now 22, claims Kukucova was a dark shadow over the early stages of their romance

After sitting in the £60,000 Hummer for a few minutes, Bush emerged and told her: ‘It’s OK darling, don’t worry. Call the police and tell them to come now.’ But her battery was dead. ‘I decided that he’d be able to sort it out,’ she added. ‘So I waited.’

Within minutes Kukucova had shot her boyfriend three times with an Italian-made .38 Amadeo Rossi revolver – one shot hit him in the arm; the others in the head. The police are uncertain where she got the gun, as the serial numbers had been sawn off.

‘I could hear shouting and then I heard a bang, then another bang-bang,’ she said. ‘I thought it was something being thrown down the stairs, maybe a TV or the luggage.

‘Then Mayka came out of the house. She had the keys and said: ‘Get off the car.’ She was so calm that it sends chills down my spine. I was furious. I didn’t think Andy would give her the keys. 

‘But when she told me he wanted me to go inside and see him, I decided that he was desperate to get her away from the villa. Mayka said: ‘Andy wants to speak to you, he is in the toilet.’

‘So I got out and started to walk to the door. Then the car sped off and I realised the front door was closed. I shouted for Andy to let me in but there was no answer.’

After trying in vain to get into the villa, Maria charged her mobile at an outdoor socket. She then called Bush’s sister Rachel and the police. 

‘I started praying: ‘Please God let him be alive. I don’t care what else, just let him be alive’.’

Sadly, her prayers weren’t answered.

Hi,

In Memory of Margaret Llewellyn wife of Dave (David) Llewellyn a mother and grandmother who left a large space in the lives of those she left behind, when on 06-May-2002 she went missing from their home leaving no trace until 14 years later. Sadly Margaret Llewellyn had well established mental health issues for which she was receiving treatment, at the time of her disapearance.

It was believed by many who knew her that she had taken her own life due to circumstances beyond her control, though clearly an open verdict was correctly recorded as she may well have fallen on the steep & irregular path between Bulwark & Garden City in at the edge of Beaufort Quarry, Chepstow.

Woman’s remains were found at quarry nearly 14 years after she was reported missing, inquest hears

  • By Tyler Mears
  • May 19th, 2016

A woman whose remains were found at a quarry nearly 14 years after she was reported missing suffered from anxiety and depression, an inquest has heard.

Margaret Llewelyn was reported missing from her home in Middle Way, Bulwark, on May 6, 2002.

The grandmother, who was 53 at the time, was on a home visit from Saint Cadoc’s Hospital after previously hurting her leg falling down the stairs.

Her husband, David Llewellyn, told an inquest at Newport Coroner’s Court on Thursday that on the day his wife went missing he went out to walk their dog around 2.30pm but when he returned home around 15 minutes later she had gone.

Having married in 1970, Mr Llewellyn said he noticed a “drastic change” in his wife’s behaviour in 1996.

“She became depressed and suffered from anxiety quite badly,” he said.

Hospital visits

Mrs Llewellyn received treatment for depression and anxiety over a 10 year period and was in and out of hospital a number of times.

Investigation launched: Remains discovered at quarry in Chepstow spark police investigation

The inquest also heard that in 2000, the grandmother slipped down the stairs, catching her leg in the bannister and causing a ‘bad gash’.

After initially being admitted to the Royal Gwent Hospital she was discharged and went back to stay at Saint Cadoc’s Hospital a short time after.

Two years later, during a home visit from the hospital on May 6, 2002, Mrs Llewellyn, who was “heavily medicated” went missing, leaving no note of explanation or taking no personal belongings with her.

Mr Llewellyn told the inquest how he had initially expected his wife to “walk back in at any point” but phoned the police when she did not return.

Her remains were found nearly 14 years later by officers from Gwent Police on February 24, 2016, at Beaufort Quarry in Chepstow.

Quarry searched

A statement from Detective Constable Grande, who was in charge of overseeing the investigation into Mrs Llewellyn’s disappearance, was read during the inquest.

Her statement described how a major police search of the area using dog handlers, helicopters and heat sensitive technology was carried out at the time of her disappearance.

The quarry, surrounding areas, river banks, outbuildings and nearby houses were searched for around 18 months before a decision was made to scale down the search pending further investigations.

The case was then reviewed every three months by experienced officers.

On February 24, 2016, police received reports that a human skull had been found during excavation work as the quarry was being redeveloped.

Work at the quarry ceased and a search commenced with forensic scientists on site to assist officers.

DNA analysis later confirmed that the body parts belonged to Mrs Llewellyn and police enquires continued to establish when and under what circumstances her body entered the quarry.

The inquest heard how the body parts were later examined by a pathologist but the consultant was unable to establish a cause of death.

Coroner’s conclusion

Coroner David Bowen said: “I’m satisfied that the body parts recovered from the quarry were those of the late Margaret Llewelyn.

“She had been reported missing from her home by her husband in May 2002.

“Following that an extensive search was undertaken by Gwent Police.

“At the time, Mrs Llewellyn was on home leave from Saint Cadoc’s Hospital, where she was receiving treatment and she disappeared while her husband was absent.

“Due to the passing of time it is impossible to determine not only the medical cause of death but also the circumstances of how she came to be in the quarry.

“The only point of certainty is that the body parts recovered were that of Mrs Llewellyn.

“But in the absence of other evidence the only conclusion this inquest can reach is an open conclusion.”

Speaking after the inquest Mr Llewellyn said: “It’s all said and done now.”
