Birds & Trees Residents Association

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Last night Councillor Chris Blakeley and Simon Mountney and I attended the Birds & Trees Residents Association at St Marys Church Centre on Saughall Massie Road.  The main item on the agenda was about Dairy Crest, the Dairy/ Distribution Centre on Saughall Massie Road. A local resident, Mr Williams, gave an in-depth report into the problems he and his neighbours have suffered for 23 years. The main concern is how the site has grown from a small working dairy into a distribution centre covering a large area of the North West, with vehicles arriving and leaving through the night.

The Area Manager for Dairy Crest, Clive Roberts, attended the meeting and was questioned by Mr Williams and Councillor Blakeley. As he is quite new to his post it was agreed that he will look into all the concerns and report back in about 3 months.

Other matters discussed were Police Activity in the area presented by Sergeant Mike Roberts, and local traffic problems, including the dangers at Elm Avenue with the junction of Overchurch Road.

Fly Tipping – Lingham Lane

Thursday, June 24, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

The council and Biffa have now removed the rubbish illegally tipped in Lingham Lane. It was a whole days work to shift it all. The police are continuing enquiries to track down the offenders with the help of local residents.

The problem will probably be ongoing, so I am in negotiations with various council departments to somehow alleviate it. A few suggestions have been expressed including preventing any traffic from the lane and have only predestrian access. I will keep you informed

Fly Tipping Update

Fly Tipping Lingham Lane

As you see the work has begun to clean up the mess in Lingham Lane between the Railway bridge and the lighthouse. A horrible job for the guys doing it and costly to the public of Wirral. If anyone can assist in tracking down those responsible please contact myself, the police or the council.

British Lung Foundation

Friday, June 18, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

On Wednesday, together with Councillor Shiela Clarke I called in on the British Lung Foundation stand in the Pyramids, Birkenhead. The stand was  promoting the Children’s Charter campaign launched by the Foundation to highlight children’s lung health. There was a petition which Sheila and I signed and during the day a total of 616 people signatures were gathered.

Wallasey Youth Hub

Thursday, June 17, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

On Tuesday evening with Councillors Chris Blakeley and Simon Mountney I attended the opening of the Wallasey Youth Hub at Wallasey Fire Station. It was a great evening with the youth of Wirral again demonstrating how talented they are with singing and dancing.

The hub was opened by the Mayor of Wirral, Alan Jennings and will hopefully greatly benefit many youngsters. More information about the hub is here.

My only concern is that the hubs are constituency based so the Wallasey hub is for the youth of Wallasey and Moreton.  I hope that our local youngsters won’t feel that it is too far away. In my day I could get to a Youth Club in Wallasey and get home for less than a shilling! Unfortunately not so these days.

Fly Tipping

Wednesday, June 9, 2010 posted by Steve Williams

Following a call from a concerned resident, today I went to Lingham Lane, the part that leads from the railway bridge to the lighthouse. The resident said there had been fly tipping again in the lane. I could not believe how much rubbish had been dumped

At a time when the Council is facing cutbacks we can all do without acts like this. The money this will cost could be much better spent. If you ever see acts like this, please try and get any information to help the police catch these people who are wasting mine and your money.
