Maria is a formidable environmental campaigner whom I have got to know over the past couple of years. Indeed, we Lib Dems were so impressed with the work of her FRAGOFF environmental group that we decided not to put up a candidate against her in the elections.

It is pleasing that she won and by a substantial margin too. You can imagine how delighted Sefton Labour Party were to see her elected to Sefton Council!

May I wish Maria all the best and my congratulations on her well deserved victory.

    A fabulous result for the residents of Formby village and for democracy. We really do need to make local politics about local issues and not about (national) party politics. Its pleasing to see the local Liberal Democrats realise this and did not contest the Ravenmeols seat, well done.
