Latest Police Bulletin

Here's the latest Merseyside Police bulletin for Formby 

MerseynowliveTackling ASB in the vicinity of Duke Street Park will be the neighbourhood quarterly priority.

We would like to thank these of you who managed to attend the meeting and the numerous Have Your Say online submissions. When we are not doing our core duties we will work with the local community to address the problem.

In recent months this has included many calls in respect of nuisance cyclist and motorbikes and some reported drug dealing and use. We will report back via the newsletter, Police website and Merseynow. I few separate issues were raised in relation to speeding at various locations, poor parking and cycling. We will do what we can about these also. The concerns raised did not come as a surprise as we tend to find that problems are reported as they occur or raised at the community meetings the team does attend.

In an emergency dial 999, none emergency 101. You can also provide information about crime and ASB anonymously to crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. The date for the next meeting has not yet been set. Can you please carry on submitting ideas on the Police website.

Live Blog of Local NHS CCG Board Meeting

Southport and Formby CCG held it's bi-monthly governing body meeting in public, so people could hear them discussing and making decisions about local health services.

Rob Caudwell, local GP and NHS Southport and Formby CCG chair, says:

“The governing body is a formal meeting and it’s a way for people to find out more about what we’re doing. They can also ask us any questions ahead of the meeting getting underway. The meetings are also a chance for residents to meet some of the doctors and other professionals that make up the governing body and to listen in on the discussions taking place.”


Got your conkers yet?

Here are the rules

You've been to the park. You’ve scoured the woods.

You now have in your grasp the perfect artillery of conkers. An arsenal which could see you emerge as the unbeaten champ of your street, playground (or even office).

But how do you actually play the game? What are the rules?

I remember the playground competitions, the 'hardening the conker tricks', the joy of victory and the pride that accompanied a 'twoer or even a threeer.

Happy days.

Sefton Bus Network Review

Sefton Bus Network Review

Sefton bus routes are subject to a review. Make your views known.

Sefton Bus Routes ReviewResidents have the chance to give their views on bus services in Sefton as part of an on-going review of the whole Liverpool City Region bus network.

Working as part of the Bus Alliance, a formal partnership with operators Arriva and Stagecoach, Merseytravel is looking to create a simpler, clearer, and where possible, more direct network that can help encourage more people to take the bus.

Historically bus routes have been considered on a piecemeal basis and the idea is to consider the commercial network and the supported network – that which relies on public subsidy via Merseytravel – as a whole for the first time, to ensure it best reflects current working and living patterns and new developments and how they are served
