MUSEUM OF LIVERPOOL STARTS
‘turf’ was cut on Monday 30 April 2007 for the new
multi-million pound Museum of Liverpool on Mann Island car park,
Liverpool Pier Head. The National Museums Liverpool Chairman Loyd
Grossman was join by Director David Fleming for the landmark event.
The Museum of Liverpool will be one of the world’s leading city
history museums reflecting Liverpool’s global significance through
its unique geography, history and culture.
Building on the incredible success of the Museum of Liverpool Life,
the new museum will draw on National Museums Liverpool’s vast
collections, many of which have never been on public display. As a
vital part of the legacy of 2008, when Liverpool becomes European
Capital of Culture, it will express Liverpool's confidence as a
great 21st century European city.
Bryan Gray, Chairman of the museum’s major funder, Northwest
Regional Development Agency, welcomed the news:- “This marks
the first step in the development of an architecturally striking
building that will make a spectacular addition to the Mersey
Waterfront. Capturing the spirit of this world famous city, the new
Museum of Liverpool will provide a unique cultural attraction that
will greatly enhance the tourism offer for the city and the region
as a whole.”
LIBERAL DEMOCRATS RETAIN CONTROL OF LIVERPOOL
Democrat Leader Menzies Campbell commenting on the local election
result in Liverpool, said:- “Congratulations to the Liberal
Democrat team in Liverpool, their leadership of the council has
delivered improvements for the community and better council services
I know that they will continue to work hard on behalf of local
Health effects of Climate Change
THE UK will be
better able to prepare for the possible impact of climate change on
public health, thanks to new research. An updated report of
Health Effects of Climate Change in the UK has been published which
estimates the possible impacts of climate change on health.
This will help the health sector effectively plan development of
services to meet the needs of the population both now and in the
future, and also highlights areas where more research is needed.
The main findings of the report include:-
There is a 1 in 40 chance that by 2012 South Eastern England will
have experienced a serious heatwave.
Periods of very cold weather will become less common - while periods
of very hot weather will become more common. Winter deaths will
continue to decline as the climate warms.
Flooding is an increasing risk.
Tick-borne diseases are likely to become more common in the UK, but
this is more likely to be due to change in land use and leisure
activities than to climate change.
Increased exposure to sunshine and ultra violet light will lead to
an increase in skin cancers.
The UK population seems to be adapting to increasingly warm
Public Health Minister Caroline Flint said:- "Climate change
poses great challenges and it is important to plan ahead for the
health consequences. Actions are being taken across the UK
Government and the NHS to reduce emissions contributing to climate
change. We are at the forefront of preparing for climate change -
the UK's Climate Change Bill is the first legislation of its kind in
the world, establishing a long term legal framework to underpin our
contribution to tackling climate change, by putting in place a clear
and credible emissions reduction pathway to a statutory goal of a
60% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050.
Mandatory targets for energy efficiency for the public sector are
being set and work is continuing across the NHS at a regional and
local level to mitigate the projected impacts of climate change.
In January we announced a £100m Energy and Sustainability Capital
Fund to assist the NHS to meet the target of 15% or 0.15 million
tonnes carbon efficiency saving between 2000 and 2010. One of
the effects of climate change already encountered in this country is
the increased frequency of heatwaves. The devastating heatwave
across Europe in 2003 led to us launching the National Heatwave Plan
in 2004, in which a Heat-Health Watch system operates in England
during the summer months, with 4 levels of response and appropriate
Work is being encouraged at a regional and local level to deal with
the possible health effects of climate change. Key areas include
adapting the health and social care infrastructure to be more
resilient to the effects of heat, gales and floods, and developing
local plans to cope with disasters. We are increasing awareness of
how people can adapt to changes in climate. Let's not forget
that society also has a role to play - we can all do our bit to help
the environment through consumer choice, reducing carbon footprints
and recycling waste."
One of the authors of the report, Professor Robert Maynard from the
Health Protection Agency, said:- "The present scientific
consensus is that the climate is changing and that human activity is
contributing significantly to this. We have to prepare for the
consequences and consider the possible health impacts. Some aspects
are positive, for example there are likely to be fewer deaths due to
cold weather, but others are potentially negative, including
increases in food poisoning and dangers from both floods and
Environment Minister Ian Pearson said;- "This report
underlines the potential impact of climate change on human health.
Earlier this year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
delivered a report which showed that there would be a major threat
to health around the globe. And it's not a threat that's
exclusive to the developing world. The European heat wave of 2003
shows that developed countries are also vulnerable to climate
change. We need to take this threat seriously and start to adapt now
to safeguard our future health."
Passengers at JLA get
a taste of what Malta has to offer
ON Friday 4
May 2007, Air Malta, commenced its new scheduled service from
Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the Mediterranean island of Malta.
To mark the special occasion, a host of activities took place prior
to the first flight departing Liverpool. Two lucky passengers Jackie
Thompson and Mike Corrie from Stockport were delighted to hear that
they had triggered celebrations and in return had won themselves a
bottle of bubbly to take on holiday with them. Fellow passengers
onboard the inaugural flight were also presented with a certificate
to show that they were onboard Air Malta’s first flight from
Mr Thompson commented:- "We chose to fly from Liverpool
because the price of the flight was much cheaper than elsewhere and
it is so easy to get to John Lennon Airport now. We even used the
Arriva express bus service from Manchester city centre to the
Airport to save on the cost of parking."
At the departure gate passengers enjoyed an array of Maltese
delicacies whilst they watched eight Maltese entertainers, wearing
traditional costumes, perform a composition involving the famous
Maltese Cross accompanied by music composed by a young Maltese
musician, Ruben Zahra.
Neil Pakey, Managing Director at Liverpool John Lennon Airport,
said:- “We’re delighted with this new scheduled service to
Malta and we will continue to work closely with Air Malta to ensure
this route is a success. Today’s activities at JLA gave passengers a
taste of what Malta has to offer. It’s situated in a beautiful part
of the Mediterranean Sea and boasts a wealth of history, culture and
attractions. This new route will provide more in the way of choice
for our passengers and enable them to see for themselves what Malta
has to offer.”
Ray Borg, Air Malta Country Manager UK and Ireland, added:-
“Air Malta operates an extensive regional departure network from the
UK to Malta and we are pleased to be able to offer another low cost,
full service option for passengers from Liverpool and the
