You know you'll enjoy seeing the singer/composer live tonight at Woodwards.
Welcome to all. I'm Matthew, and I'm a street musician who gets to do other things. I was recently chosen by Keane to appear on the iconic John Lewis Christmas advert 'The Bear And The Hare', to be aired nationally on Christmas day 2013. (Mathew's websiteL

Apparently Wetherspoons have now submitted further documents regarding the future of the Club and are once more seeking permission from Sefton Council to proceed.
One of the documents sets out reasons for disposing of the Bowling Green after objections had been made by Sports England.
Comparing the side elevation drawings and the Google street view of the same elevation is interesting. A side canopy has been added and where the large bush is currently obscuring two windows these will become sliding folding doors. This will have the effect of opening up the front of the building, presumably to allow customers to 'sit out' on the frontage.
It will give an entirely new 'open' feel to that part of our village scene if it's approved.
What do you think? Make you views known, one way or the other to Sefton.

It's almost Halloween. All the usual paraphenalia associated with this popular celebration are on display in shops and pumpkins feature everywhere.
It won't be long before a stream of tiny 'trick or treaters' are knocking on our doors. I'm no different from anyone else so here's my contribution.
I spotted it in the village. It's the seasonal window display at Waterfields Choice, the bakery. It seems to be a fine example of 'entering the spirit' of the occasion. I particularly like the imaginative thought that has enhanced a simple idea. The three examples here in this photograph seem each to be an individual ghost with a character of their own. I must say I'd buy one and only reluctantly but inevitably eat it.
Enjoy Halloween, but a note of caution remember some people don't want to be disturbed on the night and are even frightened on some occasions.

On Monday I posted information about planning applications in Formby. One of those involves an application from Flames in the village. They are proposing to establish a 'Cafe area' outside the premises.
What do you think of the idea? If you were the planner would you approve or reject the application.
