Maghull Town Council Labour Group make sure fireworks night goes

Caroline Esterson

Maghull Town Council Labour Group are determined to make this year's fireworks display go with a bigger and better bang than ever before.

Last year's event was described as the "best yet" by many people who attended.

More than 5,000 people flocked to the display at Glenn Park last year.

The annual fireworks extravaganza had been under threat last year after Sefton Council announced that it was unable to fund the event due to massive Tory-Lib Dem Government cuts to the local authority's budget.

But the Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council stepped in and saved the community event.

The Labour Councillors on the town council have agreed to save the event again this year.

Maghull Town Council Labour leader Cllr Caroline Esterson said: "Maghull's fireworks display is a huge event each and every year. It brings together the whole community, young and old, and it has done for many years.

"It is one of the biggest annual events in Maghull and it raises lots of cash for charity.

"But Sefton Council has again been forced to cut funding because of the Tory-Lib Dem cuts.

"The Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council have agreed to fund the fireworks again this year because we can't let one of the biggest community events in Maghull fall victim to the Tory-Lib Dem axe."

Funds raised from this year's display will go to the Mayor of Maghull's charity. Entrance will be just £3 for a family, £1 for an adult and 50p for children.

Cllr Esterson said the town council has kept the entrance price as low as possible to ensure that everyone can attend, while still raising money for local causes.

Cllr Esterson said: "We had a great event last year. The display was fantastic and we raised lots of money for the Mayor's charities, but we are hoping to raise even more this year.

"I know that the community of Maghull will come out and support us."
