In April Rimrose Valley Friends leader Linda Gaskell came up with the idea for a wildlife meadow in the Valley. She organised fundraising from the public and corporate donors. The funding was complete within weeks and the wildflower was sowed on the former running track in May has thrived with all the rain and warm weather. Latest photos added 29/7/19.

The new tenants of the former St Mary’s Club are working on fitting out the huge space. George Tudor Williams posted this on Facebook showing the latest progress.
There were three streetlights on the Northern Road ( 6,7 and 8) with intermittent faults,
I am assured that they will be fixed this week. W/C Mon 8th April 2019
I also asked for the IT team to take a look at the council’s streetlight reporting web-page. It is fine but, I think too much information is being required.
If you have more than one streetlight report then you have to enter phone, email, address for each report. Email & Phone should be sufficient or an option to report multiple lights.
The reporting page is here
Some residents have contacted us about the grossly unfair libdem coalition legislation that allows blameless evictions from private Lets. It was part of the Localism act 2012/4 set up by the Tory and Libdem coalition to allow landlords to evict their tenants, The Labour group in Sefton Council will put this motion forward at the next Full Council Meeting:-
Sefton launches major bid for Future High Street funding
In this first round, Sefton will include bids for both Crosby village and Southport town centre and builds upon the Council’s ambitions for its town centres encapsulated within its agreed regeneration frameworks and 2030 Vision.
The Future High Street Fund aims to help Councils, their communities and the private sector work in partnership to develop and sustain town centres to enhance their vitality and viability. The fund also includes the opportunity to bid for part of a £55m Heritage High Street Fund.
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Labour Cabinet Member for Skills and Regeneration, said: “Building on Sefton’s ambitions for its town centres, we are aiming to submit two bids to the Future High Street Fund for both Southport town centre and Crosby Village to help sustain them for the future. The bids will also support Sefton’s and the City Region’s ambitions for future growth.
“For Southport this will build upon Sefton’s success in securing around £10m of Heritage Lottery and Coastal Communities Funding for King’s Gardens, Southport Pier and the recently announced Townscape Heritage Scheme.
“For Crosby this will build on the significant private sector funding by St Modwen into the village centre. If successful, Sefton Council will continue to work in an inclusive way with private sector and community sector partners.”
Formal stage 1 bids for both projects will be made in the coming months with further details issued in due course.
