Immediately after I finished at Licensing I went to Wirral Partnership Homes (WPH) Annual General Meeting, which was being held at the magnificent Floral Pavillion in New Brighton.
The meeting was extremely well attended with about 100 people present. The Chairman of WPH, Ged Pearson introduced the proceedings and talked of the year gone by and the challenges that the future year(s) will bring. He was followeed by presentations from the Chief Exec, Brian Simpson, and the accounts presented by the Director of Finance, Patrick McCarthy. After that it was over to a lively question and answer session.
Once all the formal proceedings were over we were entertained by St Pauls Operatic Society, who whilst being serious injected some humour into their performance. It was then time for a buffet, some networking before the long awaited results of the annual garden competition, which unfortunately I could not stay for. Well done to WPH for organising a really good and informative event. In my role as Cabinet Member for Housing and Community Safety, I look forward to working closely with WPH over the coming years.
