"We are getting some nice blooms around Bobby's Wood.

"It is an ongoing programme which we are building over time and I am delighted we have the backing of Maghull Town Councillors.

 

"I carried out a full survey of the area and planned this project out. While it is very cost effective, it is also very effective in making Maghull look even better. Which is exactly what my colleagues and I always strive to do.
