New Variety Minibus for Foxfield

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 posted by Steve Williams

On Monday I was delighted to attend Foxfield School where a new Variety Club Sunshine Minibus was handed over to the school by Stan Boardman.  The Minibus will be used to transport pupils to many different events, including swimming, residential experiences to the Lake District & North Wales, and for educational visits to Mainstream schools.

The money raised to buy this Minibus came from a “Silver Heart Award” Dinner held to celebrate Stan Boardman for his outstanding achievements in the world of comedy and his dedication to the Charity in presenting over 100 Sunshine Coaches to schools and organisations on Merseyside.  Stan was great with the children, keeping them laughing throughout the morning.

Many thanks from myself and my fellow Governors to The Variety Club for this fantastic donation, which will be heavily used by the school.

More Moreton Fly-Tipping

Yet again fly-tippers have dumped rubbish at the back of the Industrial Estate on Tarran Way South alongside the railway line.  I have been liaising with our Waste Disposal Department and the local Police to try and stamp out this selfish behaviour.  It’s a shame that the rural parts of the Ward are being spoiled for walkers and dog walkers.

Business in Moreton

Friday, March 8, 2013 posted by Steve Williams

I am pleased to have just learned that despite Thomas Cook closing up to 200 retail stores across the UK, our local branch on Hoylake Road is not presently under threat.  This is particularly good news as we have just lost ‘Fun Times’ the cafe and soft play for children shop, which was next door, and closed last month.

Thomas Cook is very well established at it’s current site, 294 Hoylake Road.  Prior to Thomas Cook, the site has been occupied by AT Mays, Worldchoice Carlson and originally Deeside Travel, all Travel Agents.  There is another business opening shortly and I will update on that when I can.

My colleague Cllr Chris Blakeley and myself are extremely concerned about Moreton losing High Street Businesses and are currently having talks with the Council’s Interim Strategic Head of Development & Regeneration to see what we can bring to Moreton’s High Street.
