Maghull Town Council is set to rubber stamp Labour Councillors' plans to improve two much used parks at its meeting tonight.

The Labour Group on Maghull Town Council announced plans to refurbish many of the town's parks after they conducted a survey of the state of Maghull's play areas.

Two of the parks to receive immediate attention are Roundmead and Moss Park on Ribble Avenue.

Maghull Town Council Amenities committee chairman Cllr Steve Kermode and parks and gardens supervisor Mike Upham, outlined some of the plans for Roundmead and Moss Park to MP Bill Esterson this week.

Plans include the installation of new swings, activity centre, slide, picnic benches and new seating areas, as well as new fencing.

Work on the parks has been scheduled to begin this spring, to allow for better weather for the new equipment to be installed.

Cllr Kermode said now the spring has arrived the work on the parks can begin in full swing.

Cllr Kermode said: "My Labour colleagues and I on Maghull Town Council conducted a full survey of our parks in Maghull to see how we can improve them.

 

"We have had discussions with local residents about what is wanted and that has formed our plans for the parks.

 

"The first to benefit from works are Roundmead and Moss Park.

 

"But every park in Maghull will benefit from our rolling programme of improvements."

 

Cllr Kermode said once the council rubber stamp the plans for Roundmead and Moss Park, he hopes the work will be completed in time for the summer.

 

Cllr Kermode said: "Our primary aim now that we have better weather, is that we will get these parks improved in time for the summer.

 

"Then, we will be looking at improvement works across the rest of our parks.

 

"The Labour Group on Maghull Town Council is determined to ensure that make our parks in Maghull suitable for our children.

 

"We cannot allow any of our parks to again fall into a state of disrepair as we have seen over past years.

 

"Our children, and Maghull as a whole, deserves better."

 

The town’s Labour MP Bill Esterson said he was very impressed by what the Labour Group has planned for Maghull’s parks.

 

Bill said: “After speaking to Cllr Kermode and Mike from the parks and gardens team, i am really looking forward to see the parks brought back to life again.

 

“I know that once the work is completed, my children will be wanting me to walk them over so they can play on the new equipment.

 

“I congratulate Maghull Town Council for the excellent work that they do for us.”
