Good news – A group has recently been established to try to help Lydiate deal with dropped litter and volunteers are now meeting on the last Saturday of each month to litter pick roads in Lydiate. They meet at Lydiate Village Centre on Lambshear Lane.
This builds on the longer established volunteer group (part of Maghull in Bloom) that has been litter picking the tow path of the Leeds Liverpool Canal for a number of years now.
I understand that this new group of volunteers want to expand into Maghull as well but clearly that depends on volunteers coming forward.
If you want to know more/feel you can help please contact Lydiate Parish Council for info :-

Some may see the need to do this as a consequence of austerity and the inability of Sefton Council to keep our streets clean. There is clearly some truth in this, but volunteering in your own community is worthwhile in itself and many of us do it in many differing ways. You also make new friendships and it helps reconnect folk with their own community. Please consider helping if you can spare some time.
I am especially keen to support local environmental volunteering as this is an important issue to me; its why Sheila and I volunteer with Maghull in Bloom.
