Maghull Town Council Labour Group, members of the Maghull Labour Action Team, Maghull's Sefton Labour Councillors and the town's Labour MP braved the rain to hold an open air public meeting at Round Meade Park on Friday to hear what the community wants for the play area.

Maghull Labour Action Team wrote to hundreds of residents in and around Round Meade inviting them to come along to the park to suggest what improvements are needed.

Residents' suggestions will now be put forward for consideration before final plans are drawn up.

Labour councillors have also met with contractors who are bidding to install the new equipment.

Labour's Cllr Steve Kermode said he was delighted so many residents braved the weather to come out to put their views to councillors.

Cllr Kermode said: "I'd like to thank everyone who came out to speak to us and air their views about the play area and those who sent in their views via email.

"The purpose behind the open meeting was to give people the chance to tell us what they wanted directly, or write to us to let us know.

"We are already working on plans to improve the play area. The Labour Group on Maghull Town Council has drawn up a plan to ensure that all of the town's parks benefit from regular upgrades and maintenance.

"Round Meade Park is one of first to benefit from the improvements as we have had to wait for suitable weather conditions before starting work.

"But it was great to hear the views of the residents and I can assure them that we will do all we can to incorporate as many of their ideas as feasibly possible into the scheme."

MP Bill Esterson praised Maghull Town Council's ruling Labour Group for listening to the views of local people.

Bill said: "The Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council are determined to make sure that residents' views are at the heart of any decisions that are now made by Maghull Town Council.

"They have taken the views of residents into account and are pushing forward plans for the parks.

"Thank you to everyone who took the time to put their views forward, and particularly those who braved the weather to come along on the day."
