There's been an interesting exchange on Twitter about the proposed 20mph speed limit in Formby. A closer examination of these and the references shows that the original scheme in the Piecefield Road area is to be extended.
Here's an extract from the Twitter conversation:
All roads in Formby except Liv Rd, Altcar Rd, Church Rd and Southport Rd to be made 20mph - good for safety and the environment
Lauren Jones the fundraising assistant at Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation writes:
The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only charity dedicated to the defeat of lung cancer through research, support and helping people to quit smoking. We give help and hope to those affected by lung cancer across the UK. Lung cancer is the most common cancer in the World and the biggest cancer killer in the UK.
The charity has a 5 year plan to expand over the UK and as part of this we are setting up a number of community fundraising groups; the first of which will be in Formby.
She has asked me to publish the following and I'm very happy to do so on her behalf.
Community Fundraising Group
The Fundraising group will be responsible for organising approximately four fundraising events throughout the year to raise vital funds for the charity. The group gives members the chance to make new friends, give back to the community and raise awareness and money for a serious issue in a fun and friendly manner.
The Roy Castle Community Fundraisers will provide volunteers with all of the materials needed along with support and guidance.
I am sure you agree this is a great opportunity for likeminded individuals in Formby and the surrounding areas to meet, raise awareness and have fun!
