Moreton Cenotaph – Moreton Memories

Seems I am being attacked again on Moreton Memories Facebook page over the Moreton Cenotaph. I can’t see or defend the attack because the Admin Manager of Moreton Memories has blocked me. Perhaps they don’t want a straight talker like me, someone who deals in facts not fiction?

Anyway here are the facts for those who are interested.

I was asked by a representative of the Remembrance Sunday organisers to contact Magenta Living, whose wall this is to see if the wall could be painted white so that silhouettes of poppies and soldiers could be laid over the paint as a constant reminder of conflict.

The response from Magenta was no, they would rather leave the wall in its natural state. I have forwarded this message to the organisers and said that they would have to liaise direct with Magenta Living if they wanted to progress that idea. Thats the extent of my involvement, in effect I was a messenger.

This is a matter for the Royal British Legion and their local committee, not me nor the Council.

That does not mean I am abrogating any responsibility. As a Councillor for Moreton and Saughall Massie I want what is best for our town, and will always do all I can to achieve that.

If anyone wants any more information, on this, or If I can help in any way at all, please contact me. 0151 606 9193 email: chrisblakeley@wirral.gov.uk or via this page.

Girtrell Court has one resident living at the site, as well as 19 respite beds, two of which are for emergency admissions.  The closure plan, revealed this week, follows previous decisions to close the Lyndale School and the attempted closure of the Moreton’s Adult Day Centre in previous years.

Councillor Bruce Berry said: “Only last week, the Director of Adult Social Services told me that he was working on a model to provide services to these most needy people and their families. Closure and demolition were never mentioned.

Councillor Chris Blakeley added: “The Town Hall appears to have no coherent strategy for supporting our most vulnerable residents – it seems to be a hot potch of…
