Councils approve devolution deal

ALL Councils across the Liverpool City Region have approved the Liverpool City Region Devolution Agreement, announced earlier this week by the Government. Council meetings took place in Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral.

Councillor Phil Davies, Chair of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, said:- "This is a momentous day for the Combined Authority and the Liverpool City Region as a whole. Through this deal, we have secured almost £1 billion of extra funding over the next 30 years as well as putting ourselves in a better position to support and grow our local economy.  A fundamental aspect of the deal is the recognition by Government that decisions made about the Liverpool City Region are better taken in our City Region by local leaders than in London or Whitehall. We are much better placed to take decisions about how to target investment, provide support and resources, and celebrate and promote our area.  There is no doubt that this Government will continue with its austerity agenda which is going to see further funding cuts across our City Region. Even though many of us disagree completely with the Government's overall economic policy, securing this deal puts us in the strongest possible position to cope with the challenges we will face over the coming months and years.  The deal is the start of a long journey and our discussions with the Government will continue in order to secure further devolved powers for a range of priority issues, including delivering public sector reform and improving the health and wellbeing of people who live and work in the Liverpool City Region."

Hospitals hold baby and child Christmas remembrance service

2 hospitals will be offering support to families remembering lost loved ones in the weeks before Christmas. The Baby and Child Remembrance Service will be held at Ormskirk hospital and led by the Trust chaplain, the Rev Martin Abrams.  "The run up to Christmas can be a very exciting and special time, but it can also heighten a sense of loss, grief and isolation. We hope the short, informal service will be supportive to anyone who has suffered a child or baby loss. The Salvation Army band will join us and we will be writing the names of loved ones on baubles to hang from our Christmas tree." said Martin.  The event will start with refreshments in the main Ormskirk hospital entrance at 6.30pm, on Tuesday, 1 December 2015, before moving to one of the hospital gardens for the service. During December, Trees of Remembrance will also be available in the prayer and quiet rooms at both Southport and Ormskirk hospitals. Visitors will be welcome to write the name or names of loved ones on a decoration and hang it from the tree.
