Stories of the people, the place and the areas surrounding Formby. Formby is a coastal town with a beautiful beach, fabulous sand dunes, pine woods, red squirrels all managed by the National Trust. The town boasts an attractive village shopping centre where there's much to see, eat and drink. Because of its popularity, parking close to the beach is limited, often full and large queues form by noon at weekends and bank holidays.
I've just found this YouTube video about the Cheshire village of Ashton Hayes Climate Change project. I find myself asking what can we do in Formby? Are you interested in joining a group to take these ideas forward here in Formby?
Oh dear, I've yet to see it but I'm told that the clearing of the stream bed has resulted in considerable damage in general to the land running along the stream. To make matters worse the contractors did not have permission to gain access to the site. The matter is far from settled but once I've visited the Gild Hall to see for myself I'll write a further update.
