Maghull – That new bandstand the community is getting

Now call me a kill-joy and an old misery guts if you wish but my issue over this bandstand business, apart from there being little if any call for one amongst the community, is that Maghull’s KGV Park is reasonably small and in effect surrounded by residential properties on 3 sides – Brendale Avenue, Liverpool Road South and Bailey Way off Hall Lane.

The other day I had a look at the traditional bandstand that sits in Ormskirk’s Coronation Park – I appreciate that the one Maghull Town Council is to construct is likely to be far more modern in appearance and probably/possibly much larger.

What struck me about the Ormskirk park is that it is much larger and that residential property is quite some distance away.

Yes I know that Maghull TC has issued all kinds of assurances about the Police being on hand to deal with issues but bearing in mind how stretched the Police are these days, how realistic are these assurances?

Sorry I see trouble brewing here but I certainly hope that I am wrong.
