Issue:- 17 October 2013

Letter to the Editor:- "Housing is in crisis - it's time for our side of the story"

"AS a resident of Sefton, I‘m concerned about the lack of serious local debate on the homes we need in our community when there‘s clearly a big problem.  Many of us are finding it really hard to save enough money to get on the housing ladder, or are struggling with increasing rents while our salaries are staying the same. If things don‘t change, young people in Sefton won‘t be able to move out of home, or will have to move to another part of the country.  We all need to be prepared to join in the local debate with our local Councillors to tackle this problem, and think about how we can get the right homes in the right places at prices that are affordable for everybody in Sefton.  But our community leaders can only act if more local people speak up and tell them things must change. There‘s a local campaign the community can join, called Yes to Homes, that will show people how we can make them listen.  You can join the debate at:-"   Mr Anthony.

Letters to the Editor:- "Model Railway Show Coverage"

"I attended the Model Railway 40th Exhibition at Southport, over 28 September to 29 September 2013. This was a great 2 days and with an attendance of 1000 visitors. I was very surprised by the fact that the 2 local papers did not so much as mention that the event took place. I congratulate you and your team for covering the event and publishing Patrick's photos. One of the high lights of the show was when exhibitors let some of the children help run the layouts with Mum or Dad in attendance. This is a brilliant hobby as it teaches carpentry, electrics, mechanics, engineering, model making and much more. Also young and old can enjoy working and playing together. The exhibits this year were fantastic, with many many hours of model making going in to achieve such high standards of the craft. I look forward as I'm sure many others do to next years exhibition in November."  Yours Mrs Finch.
