AN end of an era of law in
Southport as the Ministry of Justice calls for the Magistrates
Courts known as the North Sefton Magistrates Court on Albert Road
and the County Court on Hoghton Street. The courts will be fully
closed by April 2011 as joining the other 92 Magistrate courts and
48 County Courts to be closed across England and Wales as part of

the much reduced budget."
residents to be good neighbours
LIVERPOOL City Council is asking
residents to be good neighbours during the continuing wintry
weather, and look in on elderly and vulnerable residents over the
Cabinet member for adult health and social care, Councillor Roz
Gladden, said:- “We have had an extremely cold and icy week
and many of our more vulnerable residents will not have risked going
out. I am asking us all to play our part in being good citizens,
particularly those of us with vulnerable and elderly neighbours who
may need help with shopping and staying safe. Christmas can be a
lonely time of year for some elderly people who don’t have relatives
living nearby, and although we are all really busy it can make a big
difference to someone to spend a short amount of time checking that
they are ok. We have a great community spirit in Liverpool, and it
is at times like this that it is vital we are all good neighbours.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all social care staff
including home carers and those in the NHS who have braved the
appalling conditions to continue to provide support for people who
are ill or need support.“
Social care information is available on the council’s website at:-
The social care helpline, Careline – run on behalf of Liverpool City
