Its great to see that the British Red Cross have refurbed the old ‘Help The Aged Charity Shop’ on Hoylake Road and will be opening for business pretty soon. The shop has been empty for over six months, and whilst some may say, “not another charity shop”, I for one would rather have the shop open and trading, than being an empty shell that becomes an eyesore. I hope the business does well and remains in our Town for a long time
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a very happy Christmas and a great New Year. Whilst most of us are enjoying Christmas with our families in peace and tranquility, take a moment to think of those less fortunate, those engaged in conflict around the world, and those who lives are ruined by the consequences.
This morning in Moreton a cowardly lowlife carried out a robbery at the Card Warehouse shop on Hoylake Road getting away with a substantial amount of cash. The police are looking for a male approx 6 foot tall, wearing white trainers and blue tracksuit bottoms, no one got a look at his face as he was masked. If you saw anyone in the area behaving suspiciously, or have any information regarding this despicable crime please contact the police on 709 6010 or you can do it anonymously by calling CrimeStoppers on: 0800 555 111
Well thats what this week has felt like! On Monday it was work and then full Council until 9:45pm. Tuesday work and then meetings, Wednesday same as Tuesday, Thursday day in Bolton working, then back to Paradise Street Interchange for a Merseytravel event, then onto a meeting with constituents who needed my help.

Roll on a couple of days off at Christmas, I hope!
Today it was my pleasure, as a Merseytravel Representative to attend an ‘Access For All’ event at Paradise Street Interchange. The event was a culmination of a celebration of our travels, four unique sensory artworks have been created for each of the four transport gateways into Liverpool; Lime Street Station, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Paradise Street Interchange and the Pierhead Ferry Terminal.
These exciting signs have been created by young people who attend PSS Toy Library and Family Resource Centre; an innovative centre providing a range of services for children of all abilities, from all parts of Liverpool for whom ‘access’ in all its definitions is a fundamental issue. Working with artists Clare Owens and Rebecca Vipond from arts and health initiative Squash Nutrition and photographer Leila Romaya, participants have mapped their physical and emotional reactions to each venues sights, sounds, smells and textures, to produce sensory explorations of each place. Their work will be a lasting legacy at each of the locations. It was pleasure to see the look of pride on all the children’s faces for what they have achieved, in this, Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture Year
