Southport firefighters thank community for 'generous support' after raising £470 at charity car wash

SOUTHPORT firefighters are offering their thanks to the local community for helping them raise almost £500 at a charity car wash. Firefighters from Southport Community Fire Station White Watch, together with fire cadets from Bootle and Netherton Fire Station, rolled up their sleeves to wash cars on Sunday, 13 March 2016. The event, which took place at Southport Community Fire Station on Albert Road, was held to raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.

Watch Manager Steve Bousfield said:- "We were absolutely thrilled with how many people came along to the car wash and would like to thank the community and local agencies for their generous support.Everyone involved had a great day and we were delighted to be able to provide a service for the people of Southport while raising funds for a vital cause.  The Fire Fighters Charity is very important to firefighters and the rest of the firefighting community. It offers a range of valuable services including rehabilitation to help injured firefighters get back to fitness, as well as financial and emotional support. Everyone who came along to get their car washed has helped make a positive difference to firefighters, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service staff, retired firefighters and their family members in need."

The Fire Fighters is the leading provider of advice, guidance, treatment and support for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.  For more information on their work, and how you can help, visit:- FireFightersCharity.Org.UK.

Liverpudlians named the region's friendliest neighbours

LIVERPOOL might often get bad press in the papers, but the true nature of the City has been shown in a survey of 856 homeowners, conducted by Countryside, in February 2016. Following the recent survey, Liverpool homeowners have been dubbed the region's friendliest neighbours, as the survey by revealed that Liverpudlians are closer to their neighbours than any other North West City. The home builder set out to discover how well the region's homeowners really know their neighbours, with Liverpool coming out on top as the most likely to befriend people moving into their neighbourhood.  Of those surveyed, 22% of Liverpool respondents described their neighbours as close friends, compared to just 1% in the surrounding Cities, and almost ½ have invited their neighbours into their homes for a drink. Liverpool residents are also quick to welcome newcomers into their neighbourhood, with ⅔ of all respondents claiming to know each of their next door neighbours by name. The City's homeowners also came out as the least likely to intentionally avoid their neighbours, within the region.  Peter Vella, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at Countryside, commented:- "We have a number of developments in Merseyside and it's our responsibility to not only provide housing, but to build communities. It's great to see that the City's residents are being recognised for their friendly nature. Getting to know the people who live around us will help to create a sense of belonging and contribute to a happier community, so even a quick hello will make a big difference."
