Maghull’s Labour MP Bill Esterson met artists and members of the public at the Maghull Art Group exhibition at Deyes High School. The MP was very impressed by the quality of the artwork on display. 

Labour MP, Bill Esterson said, “Maghull Art Group has over 100 members who meet twice a week. Many of the members had no previous experience of painting, but thanks to the Maghull Art Group they have flourished and developed really great skills. I saw many examples of high quality art on display and was particularly impressed by the quality of the outstanding artwork on display. The members learn from each other and teach new members how to paint. Every Friday evening professional artists demonstrate their art form, be it landscapes, animals or urban scenes.  The committee told me about about one piece of art form which used shaving foam. I am really impressed by the creativity of my constituents.”

The group meets each week Tuesday 9:30am – 12 noon at St Peter’s Church hall 186a Moorhey Rd. Maghull, L31 5LW. Maghull Art Group is moving its monthly Fridaymeetings to Lydiate Parish Hall in Lambshear Lane and new members are welcome to come along to find out more.

Pritchards_authorresize.jpgBill Esterson MP met with local author Rita Cheminais on Saturday 8th October in Pritchards Book store in Crosby Village to celebrate Bookshop Day at the independent shop in Crosby. The day is designed to raise awareness of the role bookshops play in our communities, with Pritchards inviting a shop regular to sign her new book for customers on the day. 

Rita has previously published academic books, with this being her first venture into fiction. The novel Twelve Thrilling Tales is a collection of original short stories exploring the darker side of modern life.


The Labour MP said “Pritchards is a wonderful book shop, which we are very lucky to have. Bookshops are still the most common way people discover new books, making them an important contribution to our towns and villages and our economy as a whole. Pritchards have been through trying times and yet through good service, local spirit and the hard work of the management they are going from strength to strength. I am so proud to have a popular and wonderful independently ran store in my constituency, which can support budding authors in such an effective way. I’ve brought a copy of Rita’s short story compilation and look forward to giving it a read.”

Bill Esterson MP met with a group of second year Edge Hill students at Labour conference to discuss politics, why people attend conference and a sense of the topics hotly debated during the four days. 


Bill introduced them to Angela Raynor, Shadow Education Secretary, during her ‘Education not Segregation’ campaign opposing the Conservative proposed legislation of bringing back Grammar schools and Secondary Moderns.

The Labour MP said “It was great to meet with a group of young students so involved in politics. There was such range of political thought, I had a really interesting discussion and hope they learnt a lot from their trip. I would like to thank their Senior Lecturer Paula Keaveny for having organised the day, and also thank the students who got involved in the Education not Segregation campaign with Angela. For an important campaign such as this to succeed, we need the interest and involvement of such bright and concerned individuals.”
