June Burns and Rob Owens


Maghull Labour Action Team praised Sefton Council for their swift response in dealing with damage at the town's former library following the recent high winds.

Wooden panels covering the windows at the former library had been blown loose in the winds and one had been ripped away from the building entirely.

Maghull & Lydiate Labour Action Team's Rob Owens and Cllr June Burns contacted the council to repair the damage.

Within the hour Sefton Council workmen were on site making repairs.

Rob said: "The heavy wind we've had over the past couple of weeks had clearly weakened some of the boards which had been placed on the former library windows to make the building secure. One had been ripped from the building itself and was lying beside the building.

"We were obviously concerned that the damage could have been dangerous so we contacted Sefton Council and they immediately sent a team out.

"They rapidly made the repairs and inspected the rest of the site to make sure there was no other damage and the rest of the building was made safe which was our primary concern."

Maghull Town Council Labour Councillor June Burns thanked Sefton Council for their rapid response.

Cllr Burns said: "As soon as we saw the damage we were concerned about the safety of the building. Sefton Council's team clearly shared our concern and that is why they came out to make the repairs as a matter of urgency.

"We spoke to the team and they were doing a thorough job making repairs and making sure the rest of the site is safe.

"So I would like to thank Sefton Council for their swift response and the work team that came out."
