Stop Trashing Lunt Village!

If there is one thing that gets me really angry it is those lazy beggars who dump rubbish wherever they please. Don’t you just wish the Council had the power to take what they have dumped and put it their front gardens to see how they would like it? Trouble is their neighbours would have to see it too.

Just look at these latest photos from around lovely rural Lunt Village which is regularly trashed by idiots who care nothing for our environment:-

In fact I took these photo’s today having been contacted by a resident of the Village. This happens time and time again and it is vital that we identify who is doing it. Some of it this time is household dumping whist some is clearly contractors rubble from work on a property.

Residents of Lunt do not deserve this fly-tipping (and I include the Leader of Sefton Council here) but some people must hate our environment so much that all they want to do is to trash it!

An uneventful Maghull Council meeting except for…….

The last Maghull Town Council meeting held on 1st October was unremarkable in many ways with the Council going about its usual business and with a great deal of political harmony. Yes, I know, political harmony and Maghull Council are not words you would expect to see used together because of recent history – 8 Labour councillors resigning etc. but harmony there was at this meeting.

But there was a moment when things started to look rocky because a local resident spoke during the public participation part of the meeting. He was very much to the point and wanted to know whether Labour councillors are whipped to vote certain ways or whether they have free will to vote as they individually think best.

Answer came there none! The only response was that the Council would respond at a later time/date! Obviously not a question the Labour members would want to answer and this seems to be a pattern these days i.e. they don’t like to answer questions directly when they are asked by members of the public at a Council meeting.

Funny thing this socialism lark and oh yes, let’s answer the question for them – of course Labour whips councillors; it’s in their DNA!

Lydiate Village Centre – Going Green

Lydiate Village Centre (run by Lydiate Parish Council) has a large number of solar panels on its roof which generate electricity. Here is a read out of what has been generated so far in 3+ years. The top read out is on nil as it was dark outside when the shot was taken.

Crosby – Burbo Bank Wind Farm

Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm – located five miles from Crosby beach – has been given the green light by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. See the Liverpool Echo story via the link above.

Here’s a shot I took (click on it to enlarge) with the turbines in the background as they were in March 2009:-

Out at sea these massive turbines can look quite majestic. Certainly a better place for them than Lower Alt Wind Farm between Lydiate and Ince Blundell!
