Town Mayor Cllr Sandra Williams said Maghull was blooming marvellous when she hosted the Maghull in Bloom reception at the town hall this week.

Cllr Williams said she was "thoroughly proud" at how Maghull looked as judges visited the town

Cllr Williams said: "The town looked absolutely fantastic for the judge's visit and I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to making Maghull in Bloom such a success this year.

"The Maghull in Bloom scheme has really developed well over the year and there are lots of people and groups who come together to make it the success it is.

"We are very proud that Maghull is involved in the this."

Deputy Mayor of Maghull, Cllr Steve Kermode, said he was particularly pleased that local schools had gotten involved in Maghull in Bloom.

Cllr Kermode said: "Lots of schools have really jumped at the chance to get involved in Maghull in Bloom.

"This year St Gergory's won an award and Green Park were runners up.

"But they all did fantastically well.

"The participation of schools in this is particularly welcoming because it encourages young people to get involved in gardening and looking after their local community.

"It gives them an understanding about our local wildlife and an awareness about nature.

"I've already met some budding gardeners - who knows they could be future Monty Dons and Kim Wildes from right here in Maghull.

"Well done to everyone involved."
