Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner Jane Kennedy at Freshfield, Formby & Ince Blundell Homewatch Scheme's AGM at Formby High Sixth Form Centre, with Ch Insp Chris Burnham, Insp Nigel Stewart and chairman Roger Sloman.


Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner Jane Kennedy came to Formby last week to hear for herself residents' concerns.

Commissioner Kennedy was guest at Freshfield, Formby & Ince Blundell Homewatch Schemes' AGM, which was held at Formby High Sixth Form Centre.

During the meeting, Commissioner Kennedy heard for herself the concerns residents in Freshfield, Formby and Ince Blundell have.

These included concerns about the closure of Formby Police Station's public inquiry desk and the recent incident of vandalism around Beechwood Drive.

Commissioner Kennedy said: "The meeting was very well attended with easily over 100 people from Freshfield, Formby and Ince Blundell.

"Residents told me some of their concerns, including the closure of the inquiry desk at Formby.

"Ch Insp Chris Burnham and Neighbourhood Insp Nigel Stewart were also able to directly address concerns in relation to the recent incident of anti-social behaviour in Formby which appeared in the local media. This incident involved teenagers causing disruption and damage when a party went wrong.

"Ch Insp Burnham and Insp Stewart told us what steps are being taken to deal with that specific issue and what is in place to deal with any potential issues of anti social behaviour in future.

"We clearly have a very good local police team here in Formby, Freshfield and Ince Blundell who are on top of a number of local issues."

Jane Kennedy is the region's first Police and Crime Commissioner. She was elected just last November, but she has already attended residents' meetings throughout the county, including a number in Sefton.

Commissioner Kennedy said: "As the new Police and Crime Commissioner, I think it is vitally important that I speak to residents in communities throughout the region.

"Speaking to the people of Formby, Freshfield and Ince Blundell gave me an insight into what people's priorities are here. 

"I would like to thank Freshfield, Formby & Ince Blundell Homewatch Schemes for inviting me and everyone who came along."
