FUTURE OF KNOWSLEY PARKS AND GREEN SPACES
Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council are asking for residents’ views on the future of Knowsley’s parks and green spaces.
During September 2017, the independent Knowsley Parks and Green Spaces Review Board is seeking views on a series of recommendations regarding the future and management, funding and governance of the Borough’s green spaces. The Board’s recommendations recognise the need to reduce the £1.3million which the Council has to spend each year simply to maintain Knowsley’s parks.
The consultation exercise is aimed at identifying new ways to manage and run parks in Knowsley so that they can be protected for the future. To find out more and share your views, visit the Board’s website.

‘A FABULOUS DAY’
….not our words but those of a resident who, together with his family, attended the inaugural Halewood Town Council Fun Day was held on 5th August.
During a day of bright sunshine, an estimated 3,500 to 4,000 people came along to Hilton Grace Recreation Ground to enjoy a variety of entertainment and (mostly) free activities and to ‘have a go’ on the fair.
Here’s just some of the pictures taken on the day….
