Public Meeting

Friday, April 30, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Following on from the petition around Millhouse Lane after the road crashes, we have arranged for a public meeting, when Council Officers will be in attendance, to discuss the situation.  The meeting is at the Millhouse Pub on Tuesday 4th May at 6.00p.m.

Due to election rules Councillors Leah Fraser and Simon Mountney cannot be present but Chris Blakeley and I will both attend.

We would welcome as many residents as possible to attend, and many will have already received a letter from us outlining these details.  Thanks to Phil  at the Millhouse, for kindly allowing us to use the Pub.

Millhouse Lane Petition

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Following the crash on Millhouse Lane on Sunday many residents have asked us for help in the area.  Last night, together with Councillors Simon Mountney, Chris Blakeley and Leah Fraser I called at houses and started a petition which we will present to the council, to try and get some traffic calming measure in place.  Nearly all of the people we called on agreed with the petition and signed it.  We will continue this during the week.  

Another Crash

Saturday, April 24, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Today has seen another serious crash in Millhouse Lane.  More overwhelming was that  it was at the exact location of the bus accident on the 23rd December, when a bus crashed into the house, a fire appliance attending crashed into the bus, then a second fire engine crashed into the first one, all in the icy weather. 

I attended the scene today as did Councillor Chris Blakeley.  We spoke to numerous residents who have serious concerns as to the safety of this part of Millhouse Lane.  They tell us that there have been many incidents at and around this location due to the excessive speed of vehicles.

We will consult with the  council’s Technical Services to arrange an inspection and assessment of the vicinity.

Busy Days

Friday, April 23, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Having a hectic time at the moment.  Yesterday afternoon I went to Lingham School with Leah Fraser, Jackie Foster MEP and other councillors, where we distributed leaflets, chatted to parents and gave balloons to the children.

In the evening Leah Fraser and I visited the Moreton Evening Ladies meeting at the Methodist Church.  Leah spoke about how she came to politics, and then there were questions and answers on international, national and local issues.  A very interesting evening.

This afternoon with Cllr Simon Mountney I attended the police Neighbourhood Action Group at Eastway Community Centre.  The meeting was led by Inspector Peter Kolokotroni.

This is a group that includes local police, councillors, community leaders, neighbourhood watch leaders, resident association leaders and officers from the council.  It was very lively with various local issues being brought up, and action plans formulated to try and sort out the matters. 

After that Simon and I went to our campaign headquarters and collected the latest edition of our ‘Newslines’ and are currectly getting them out to our deliverers.  I believe it’s going to be a busy weekend as well. Got my holiday at the right time!

Canvassing in Moreton East & Leasowe

Thursday, April 22, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

 

Last night together with a team of ten I was out canvassing in the Moreton East & Leasowe Ward. We were canvassing for Leah Fraser, our parliamentary candidate and Steve Smith, the conservative candidate for that ward.  We called on homes around Stavordale Road, Stuart Avenue, Burnley Road and surrounding area.  We had a very good response with new pledges, and a few agreeing to display our posters and some wishing to help with our campaign for the next two weeks.

I was delighted today, to attend a meeting  with Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague at the  Thornton Hall Hotel.  His visit was hosted by Parliamentary Candidate for Wirral South, Jeff Clarke. 

Mr Hague was addressing a number of  small business owners  in Wirral.  He gave an excellent rousing speech about the forthcoming election and what could be achieved.

The Campaign Continues

Had a busy day Saturday.   Together with a large team we delivered hundreds of  “Wirral Weekend” newspapers.  Our teams area was Poulton and Seacombe and we got quite a few welcoming greetings.  In the afternoon I helped stuffing envelopes for the next load of letters.  A hard days work but all in a good cause. Time for Change.

Linear Park Update

Linear park

Whilst driving along Town Meadow Lane today it was nice to see the work has started on the play area at Linear Park.  Let’s hope it’s all completed for the fanstastic weather that we’re being promised. 

Not so good news on the street name signs for Tarbot Hey, Edgehill Road and Burden Road that I asked for.  The council have removed the rotted old ones, but we’re still awaiting the replacements.

Wirral Leukaemia Awareness Day

Tuesday, April 13, 2010 posted by Steve Williams
In February I assisted in promoting the “Wirral Leukaemia Awareness Day” at West Kirby in February, on behalf of 22 year old Candice Colley and her family from Thingwall.
 
The day was a great success with 408 new donors signing up with the Anthony Nolan Trust.
 
Today I have received the excellent news that two matching donors have been found for Candice, one in Spain and one in Texas. Her doctors are hoping for a stem cell transplant to take place at the end of April, beginning of May.
