Maghull Town Council Community Committee plans public forum for

Maurice Byrne

Maghull Town Council's newly formed Community Committee has announced plans to hold a public forum for local groups to come forward and see what support they can get.


Maghull Town Council's Labour leader Cllr Maurice Byrne formed the new committee just a couple of months back.


It is made up of leading community activists and its aim is to ensure local groups get the support they need.


Cllr Byrne, who devised the idea of the Community Committee, said they were planning to hold a forum in January for community groups to find out more.


Cllr Byrne said: "The idea behind the public event in January is to bring community groups together to meet the committee and to find out what Maghull Town Council can do to help them.


"The event itself, which will be held on Wednesday, January 25, from 6pm to 9pm at Maghull Town Hall, will be like a promotion fair, followed by a workshop which will focus on 'what can Maghull Town Council do to encourage and assist Maghull community organisations'.


"What we would like to see is existing community groups coming along to discuss what we can do for them, but also people with ideas for new groups.


"We will have people on hand who can give advice and guidance on the best ways to start up a community group. So anyone who has any ideas should come along."


Cllr Byrne said community groups can also find out more about making bids for a new Maghull Town Council community fund of up to £500.


Cllr Byrne said: "We want community groups in Maghull to thrive and expand, particularly at a time when we are seeing community groups struggling because funding has become very difficult to come by.


"Community groups can and should play a huge part in our society. We want these group to be an integral part of our community here in Maghull.


"Maghull Town Council wants to make that a reality."
