Rape Crisis Centre

Saturday, March 3, 2012 posted by Steve Williams

This afternoon I went to the opening of a Rape Crisis Centre at Hoylake Holistics, in Market Street.  Also attending was my friend Esther McVey MP.  We were very impressed with the centre which appears to be exactly what is needed for victims of such crimes.  We were shown around by Jo Wood MBE, a Moreton resident.  Jo is the Service Manager for RASA (Rape and Sexual Abuse). 

We also met John and Penny Clough the parents of Jane Clough who was brutally murdered in 2010.  Jane was stabbed to death by her ex partner in the hospital car park where she worked.  He had been given bail having been charged with 3 counts of rape on Jane.  Whilst we were there a cheque for £1000 was presented to Jo from John and Penny who have run the ‘Justice for Jane’ campaign.

History & Heritage

Saturday, March 3, 2012 posted by Steve Williams

This morning I went to Birkenhead Town Hall, an ideal setting for the Wirral History & Heritage Association’s Annual Fair.  The event was opened by the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Moira McLaughlin, and Professor Steve Harding who has studied Vikings in Wirral since he was a child.

The event hosted numerous stands of local groups and businesses.  The range included Genealogy, History societies, Lighthouse friends groups, footpath groups and postcard sellers.  Many were dressed in traditional costume and parked outside was an old Ribble bus of the Wirral Transport Collection.

A brilliant event and an excellent turnout of visitors attending making it a very successful day.
