Roger Philips

Last Thursday together with Cllr Chris Blakeley I went to the Moreton Community Centre which was playing host to the BBC’s Roger Philips Show. It was the first time the show had been broadcast live from Moreton.  It was very interesting to watch how the show is managed.  Having regularly listened to the show I had an idea how things fitted together.  It’s extremely different when you actually see it.  At the event sometimes things were a bit manic but the output to the radio sounded as everything was running smoothly.  Roger Philips does a brilliant job of staying calm and collected when all around him he is getting phone messages, e-mails and notes from his producer, as well as holding his microphone to the mouth of one of the audience members.

As well as myself and Chris there were representatives from Wirral Partnership Homes, Merseyside Police, Moreton Townswomens Guild, VCA Wirral and Citizen Advice Bureau.  There were lively discussions on a range of subjects from Pensions, Strikes, Moreton’s history, Crime to local services.  The event was hosted by Mike Griffiths, the Manager of the Centre who explained to Roger all the good activities that take place there and about the differing users availing themselves of the choices.

All in all a great day and a good positive event for our area.
