Report by Bob Wagstaff photograph by Patrick Trollope
A interesting evening to launch MERSEYFEST FORMBY took place in the Gild Hall, Formby, on Tuesday
25 January. At the meeting were representatives of the various organistions in the Formby
community. After the presentations there was an opportunity for questions and to meet others of the community who will be taking part.
Representing the Chief Executive of Sefton, Mr.Graham Haywood, one of his senior officers, Mr. Mo Kundies
said:- "Merseyfest has already demonstrated it's willingness and ability to engage local communities and individuals to undertake
community led projects during last year's pilot scheme.
I am optimistic that this years main event will even be even more successful, both in terms of what it physically delivers, and the positive legacy that it will leave behind in Sefton."
