Labour-run Maghull Town Council is conducting a full review of all equipment in the town's play areas as it continues its parks improvement programme.

As soon as the Labour councillors took control of the town council in 2011, they drew up a park improvement plan to ensure that all of the council-run parks had the best equipment possible.

The latest review of the parks will ensure that the parks are the best in the borough.

Maghull Town Council Labour leader Cllr Patrick McKinley said: "One of the key functions of the town council is to ensure that Maghull boasts some of the best parks in Sefton.

"In my opinion, on the whole we do have some of the best parks. This review will make sure that our parks continue to be among the best. That the parks have good quality and varied play equipment and they are welcoming to people of all ages.

"We have that already. It is our job now to make sure we keep them that way."

The parks improvement plan is part of a green space strategy which Cllr McKinley said will be a real boost for the town.

Cllr McKinley said: "We have already started reviewing the equipment in the parks and if our proposals pass the Council we will begin to plan out a timescale for the rest of our green strategy.

"This strategy will involve improving our already excellent parks and looking at new ways to make the town a real green lung for the borough and for the region.

"We are drawing up plans for this at the moment and hope to launch in the next few weeks.

"Maghull is a town to be proud of. it is a great place to live. We're determined to make it even better."
