Dogs and Public Space Protection Order

Consultation on introducing a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) across the whole of the borough has started and lasts until April 11

As part of Sefton Council’s commitment to promote responsible dog ownership, we are consulting on introducing new dog control measures.

Consultation on introducing a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) across the whole of the borough started on February 6 and will last until April 11.

A Public Space Protection Order is an official measure that is an enforceable part of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. PSPOs can be used to protect the public from behaviour that is having or is likely to have a harmful effect on the quality of life of those in an area.

Will Oldfield, the 2016 Club Captain 2016, said:

“It’s a terrific result and I am bursting with pride at the generosity of the club membership.”

The key fundraising activity was held when the club arranged a Longest Day Challenge with 23 golfers playing 72 holes in a day at Hurlston Hall, starting at 4.30am and finishing just before 10pm.

Members and friends supported the event during the day providing refreshments, marshalling and moral support.

Other fundraising activities included a novel “virtual nearest the pin” competition on the 7th hole at Pebble Beach during the Captain's Away Day in July.

Linda Connolly, Assistant Matron for Paediatrics and Neonates, and Tina Hill, Paediatric Practice Development Nurse, received a cheque on behalf of the hospital at a presentation evening from the club captains, Alison Wood and Will Oldfield.

Linda said:

“We were honoured to be chosen as the club’s charity for 2016. Members have worked hard at raising an amazing sum of money and we would like to express our greatest appreciation to everyone. Their fundraising and generosity will be put to good use to benefit the patients who attend the unit.”
