Maghull Labour Councillors help make sure Maghull is a cut above

Lynn Gatherer and Patrick McKinley

Maghull Labour Action Team sprang to action to make sure the town looked blooming marvellous last week.


Labour's Cllr Patrick McKinley and Lynn Gatherer gave their full backing to Maghull in Bloom.


But when they were contacted by a member of the Maghull in Bloom volunteers concerned that the grass verges near to Central Square had become overgrown, just days before the Britain in Bloom judges were to visit the town, then the Labour Councillors demanded immediate action.


Within hours, Sefton Council had grass cutters out to Maghull to mow the verges.


Sudell Ward's Cllr McKinley praised Sefton for their swift action.


Cllr McKinley said: "With the annual visit from the Britain in Bloom judges, it is important that Central Square looks its best.


"But shortly before the judges were due to visit, the grass verges were overgrown and needed urgent attention.


"We contacted the council to come in cut the verges before the judges made their visit, which they did. We'd like to thank Sefton Council for their swift action."


Cllr Lynn Gatherer said she was proud to support Maghull in Bloom.


Cllr Gatherer said: "Maghull Labour Action Team is proud to support Maghull in Bloom.
