Ablution room opened at Southport hospital

An ablution room for use by staff and visitors has opened at Southport hospital. It will be used for ritual washing in preparation for prayer and worship.

Hospital Ablution RoomAblution is an essential element of the Muslim tradition. There is an obligation for prayers to be offered five times a day. The room was created at the entrance facing the Clinical Education Centre to be near the prayer/quiet room.

Those attending the official handover from the Trust estates team included Soyful Alam, the Imam for Southport and West Lancashire, and a number of Trust staff who will be regular users.

The Trust chaplain, the Rev Martin Abrams, said:

The commitment to prayer from within the Muslim community is inspirational, and the contribution they make to the Trust is outstanding. I am delighted we have been able to accommodate their cultural requirements.

I find it very moving that within our small prayer room we are able to accommodate different world faiths alongside the quiet space we offer for people of no formal religion.”

Mr Alam said:


On behalf of the Muslim community of Sefton, I would like to express my utmost appreciation to Southport hospital for the wonderful ablution facility that has been provided with such consideration and courtesy.

My gratitude is extended to all those who had a role in providing this special facility.”

Also present were Rodney Dykes, recently retired Trust non-executive director who chaired the charity and faith committees.

Sefton Council's Local Plan Likely to be 'Sound'

Subject to a few minor amendments and modifications, the Planning Inspector has indicated he is likely to find Sefton Council's Local Plan 'sound'.

Sefton_council_logo (1)Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council, said:

The initial findings from the Inspector are very supportive and subject to a few minor amendments, set us up on a clear path to adopt the plan.

The next steps involve us modifying the draft plan which will go back out for consultation, submitting the new Plan which when approved will enable us to adopt our Local Plan in 2017."

Cllr Daren Veidman, Cabinet Member Planning and Building Control, added:


We have known all along if Sefton Council didn’t identify sufficient land for development, the local authority faced the risk of being found to have an unsound Local Plan – with the real risk that the council will lose control of planning decisions on greenbelt land.

An image worth comparing with the present.

I wonder whether the barriers currently installed are examples of street clutter. I think I prefer the sense of space in earlier times. And the constant damage to the barriers is becoming an expensive eyesore.

Good Wool Shop Birthday Celebrations

The Good Wool Shop will be one year old at the beginning of March this year!

GoodWoolYarnDayOver the last 12 months this little treasure trove has been attracting customers not just from Formby but as far afield as the Isle of Man, Spain, the USA and Australia.

The starting point for Isabel Jordan, the shop’s owner, was to offer good quality and natural yarns at affordable prices. Having lived in sheep farming areas she wanted to be sure to sell British wool, and has added to that more luxury fibres like alpaca and silk.

As a knitter, Isabel has been overwhelmed by the popularity of crochet and finds that there are usually waiting lists for the shop’s crochet classes. Workshops in knitting techniques like Fair Isle and sock making are also proving popular. Cathy’s tea room is a welcoming venue for a weekly Knit/Crochet and Natter session and an evening woolly get-together takes place weekly at Café D’Art.

GoodWoolFestivalHighlights of the last year, over and above the shop’s usual programme, have included taking a stand at Formby Festival, joining other yarn enthusiasts at Burscough Fibre Festival and school holiday activities for children within the shop.

To mark the shop’s birthday there are plans for a celebration at Café D’Art on Tuesday 1 March, and there will be a party atmosphere in the shop itself on Saturday 5 March.

As a special thank you to creative customers over the last year, there will be a 10% discount for anyone wearing or bringing in an item they have knitted or crocheted with yarn bought from the Good Wool Shop.

The plan is to photograph as many of these as possible to create a full colour exhibition later in the spring. There will be a free prize draw and other goodies on offer too!

GoodWool ShopThe Good Wool Shop shares premises on Chapel Lane in Formby with Derbyshire’s Cards and Gifts, the Flower Studio and Cathy’s Tea Rooms so lots of our customers say a visit to us is like stepping into a mini department store.

If you’d like to find out more about the birthday celebrations or what the shop has to offer, take a look at our website www.thegoodwoolshop.co.uk or Facebook page The Good Wool Shop, or give us a call on 01704 830465.
