Maurice Byrne and Steve Kermode

Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council are devising a plan to ensure that all of the town's parks benefit from regular upgrades and maintenance.


The Labour Group on the town council are concerned that over the years, many of the town's parks have become in need of renovation.

In the past few months they have been contacted by a growing number of people calling for their local parks to be improved.

Earlier in the summer five-year-old Madalynn Burness wrote to MP Bill Esterson and the Maghull Labour Action Team calling for her local park, Ribble Avenue Park, to get some much needed improvements.

And Cllrs Caroline Esterson and Steve Kermode  say the park in The Round Meade is in urgent need of new play equipment.

The Maghull Town Council Labour Group have now made site visits to all of the town's parks and devised an action plan for a rolling programme of constant improvements.

Maghull Town Council leader, Labour's Cllr Maurice Byrne, said the upkeep of the parks was one of the town council's primary responsibilities.

Cllr Byrne said: "My Labour colleagues and I have made site visits to each of the parks in Maghull which are the town council's responsibility. There are some very clear improvements which we can make.

"So we have devised a rolling programme of improvements which means that every park will get some much needed investment.

"We cannot allow any of our parks to continue to fall into a state of disrepair."

Cllr Steve Kermode who is the chairman of Amenities Committee, said the town council had very skilled and hardworking workforce who are keen to create and install and improve play equipment in the parks.

Cllr Kermode said: "We have a fantastically skilled team at Maghull Town Council who have the ability to create some of the equipment needed in our playgrounds, including fencing and benches.

"This means that we can keep the cost right down while also providing the much needed investment.

"We are currently finalising the plans for the improvements programme and will be rolling that out in the new year.

"This is good news for our communities across Maghull."
