Saughall Massie Road Pavement

After many requests to the Council regarding the Pavement, or lack of one, on this part of Saughall Massie Road, work has finally started.  It was particularly difficult for residents to walk to the shops, the bus stops and cross the road, especially if they had disabilities.

When the new walkway, with dropdown kerbs, is finished it should benefit many pedestrians heading to the area from the Kingfisher Way estate. More importantly it will be much safer for them.  I hope to show some photos of the finished project soon

Youth Forum

Friday, June 13, 2014 posted by Steve Williams

Last night I was on the panel at the Youth Forum held at the Wallasey Youth Hub in Mill Lane Fire Station.  It was a very interesting evening with the youngsters asking many questions.  The subjects ranged from Council Services, Bus & Train travel, School Nurses, Speeding vehicles, Police stop & searches and even ‘what’s going to happen after the next General Election’! 

The youngsters showed a lot of interest and maturity in their questioning and it was time well spent showing that the youth of Wirral do have a strong interest in their community.  The Forum was also well presented by the Youth Hub Manager, Lisa Joy, and her colleagues.

A Planning Application for the  demolition of the Millhouse Pub has been submitted.  The applicant, Galliford Try Partnerships, have a proposal to build 40 residential apartments for the over 55’s on the site.  Quite a number of residents have already voiced opinions and questions regarding the issue.  In view of this Galliford Try, have agreed to hold a Public Consultation meeting at the Moreton Community Centre between 4.00 and 7.00pm on Friday 20th June. 

I and my colleagues, Cllrs. Chris Blakeley and Bruce Berry will hopefully be attending the meeting.  After this, we will be available to listen to concerns about the proposal, and take any action that we can to assist residents.

Early Years Help

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 posted by Steve Williams

On Friday I attended a conference at Leasowe Early Years & Adult Education Centre. This was to discuss the work being done by various agencies, and the way that these agencies interact with each other. The agencies included Council Departments, Health Authority and Merseyside Police. It was encouraging to hear how all these different agencies work and talk together.

I can remember the days when none of this would have occurred with all these parties being very secretive towards each other. Today is quite the opposite with inclusion being a paramount requirement. It was refreshing seeing the commitment of all attendees who are trying to make life better for struggling families.

If anyone needs advice or guidance about these services please contact me or one of my colleagues

New Councillor for Moreton West & Saughall Masssie

Sunday, June 8, 2014 posted by Steve Williams

Cllr. Chris Blakeley and I were delighted at the recent local elections when local Conservative candidate, Bruce Berry, won the seat for Moreton West & Saughall Massie to serve alongside us. Simon Mountney had decided not to stand this year, having served 10 years and wanted to spend more time with his family and children.

Bruce has worked really hard during the last year getting to know as many people as he can in the ward, and letting them know about him by much door knocking and leaflet dropping. He has attended many meetings with us and is getting a good knowledge of the area and the type of issues that we need to work on.

Bruce is a Governor at Lingham Primary School. He is also keen to start working on local problems, attend Council and Committee meetings and generally, like Chris and myself, make Moreton West & Saughall Massie a better place to live.
