Sadly I am hearing that the newly reopened and refurbished Weld Blundell pub was broken into last night.
Unless I am getting things out of perspective it seems that Maghull & Lydiate are in the midst of a rather worrying break-in crime wave at present.

Weld Blundell Pub – November 2016
We had our first visit to the recently reopened ‘Wellie’ yesterday and an enjoyable experience it was too. We were with our relatives from ‘up north’ in Preston, Jan and Ian, who know Mike Reeve the new landlord from a couple of pubs he runs in that part of the world.
The old pub has certainly undergone a huge change and is much larger than before the recent refurb’. The food was good and the staff were attentive and engaging.
Here’s a few shots of the pub as it is now: I like the use of old leaded windows for display on an internal wall:-
Here’s a link to the pub’s new web site:-
The Wellie certainly gets a thumbs up from this Lydiate resident.
