M&Co on Formby High Street are gearing up for their annual Fashion Show to be held on Tuesday 4th October as the Gild Hall. They met with their local MP Bill Esterson, who attended the event last year, along with the manager of the local Cancer Research Shop Joyce Hoskin. 

Organiser Sheila Leathley said “It’s sure to be another fun night with stalls, a raffle, entertainment and refreshments. Our models are customers from M&Co who wear the latest designs from the local store – in all it’s a fun locally organised event which raises money for a worthwhile cause. To get a ticket, just pop into our shop or the Cancer Research Shop a few doors down on Chapel Lane. They’re £6 a piece, or £5 for concessions.”

Labour MP Bill Esterson said “It’s a great night and a worthy cause. If you are free on 4th I fully recommend buying a ticket and supporting a fantastic locally organised event. I would like to thank Sheila and all of the M&Co employees for their organising and hope to see everyone on the night.”

Many people in Maghull, Lydiate, Aintree and Melling have told me they would like us to have our own Walk-In Centre  in Maghull. I live in Maghull with my wife and children and we would certainly like a walk in centre as well. So I was pleased that so many people had signed a petition supporting the idea. At last year's general election, I pointed out that we needed a Labour government to be elected so that we could see investment in our NHS right here in East Sefton, both for a walk in centre and also to support our GP surgeries, which as many of you know are under pressure, whether in Maghull or in Melling. Unfortunately, Labour lost that election and the Conservatives have continued the cuts and austerity which mean there is no money for investment in health services or other public services.



In order to help Maghull, and other areas of Sefton, we need a change in Government. It’s as simple as that. Owen Smith is one of the contenders for the Labour leadership. He has pledged an extra 4% a year in funding to the NHS – exactly the type of policy which will make a very real and tangible difference in our community if implemented in Government.

I am working hard in Westminster, as part of the Labour Party, to oppose Government cuts. Labour councillors in Maghull, Lydiate, Aintree and Melling are doing all they can as welI. There are opportunities for some improvements which our NHS is working on despite a shortage of funds. But it is government cuts that are preventing a walk in centre in Maghull and it will take the election of a Labour government to reverse cuts in health and especially social care services for our elderly and disabled people. The Conservatives will never invest in our NHS and want to privatise it not invest in a new walk in centre. I support those campaigning for a walk in centre but they need to work with Labour for a change of government for Such a facility to have any chance of becoming a reality in Maghull.

Aintree's Labour MP, Bill Esterson, was full of praise for the staff and volunteers who organised the Health and Wellbeing day at Old Roan Methodist Church.

 
The event was organised By Chris Shelley and was supported by a number of voluntary organisations as well as by Sefton Council and the NHS.
 
Old Roan Methodist Church hosted an older persons information and advice day. Many local agencies, including The Alzheimers Society,  SMILE, Age Concern, local NHS services, South Sefton Foodbank and the fire brigade were represented offering help and advice to all who attended. 
The Minister Revd Viv Gasteen said, "We are delighted to serve the older members of our community in this way." 
Local MP, Bill Esterson met staff and volunteers and chatted to some of the residents who attended during the event at OldRoan Methodist Church. Mr Esterson said, "Thank you to Chris Shelley and to everyone who helped organise such a successful event. It was clear that older people in and around Aintree really appreciated the advice and help that was available on the day and I would also like to thank all of the organisations who contributed. Ian Roxburgh from Aintree Community Centre told me about the event and I was glad I could drop in to support the excellent work of all of the groups who attended. Ian and his team of volunteers and trustees do an excellent job in Aintree and I would encourage residents to support the community centre in Oriel Drive. Thank you also to Old Roan Methodist Church and Revd Viv Gasteen for hosting the event. It is vital that we all support our older people. Aintree and East Sefton as a whole has many older people and in fact my constituency of Sefton Central has one of the oldest populations in the country, so it is vital that we do all we can to help. That's why it was so encouraging to see so many people doing what they can for our community.
 
"I am sure that the older people who attended were extremely grateful for the help they received and I hope that similar events will be held right across my constituency so that many more people can be helped. 
 
"Thank you again to everyone who helped at the event and for all the fine work you do every day of the year."
