Last chance to win £150k for Southport community makeover

SOUTHPORT residents have until 29 April 2016 to put their community project forward for a top transformation from builders' merchant, Jewson. As part of its 'Building Better Communities' campaign, Jewson is asking local people in Southport to put forward community buildings that are in need of some TLC. From a much needed coat of paint for a village hall, to a brand new home for a local sports club, community spaces most in need could win a share of a new, mammoth £250,000 prize pot.  This year, applicants can choose to put forward their project for either a top £150,000 prize or a smaller share of a regional prize £100,000 fund where they can ask for anything from £500 to £10,000 to spend on building materials. Nominations can be made on there campaign's website or on Jewson Facebook Page. A new addition for 2016 is the top £150,000 prize, which will see 1 project receive a transformation using the Saint Gobain 'My Comfort' building principles.  David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson, said:- "We want to make a difference to the communities we work in and help transform projects that are close to their hearts. That's why we've upped the prize fund to a quarter of a million pounds this year, so that we can turn the buildings we love into warm, inviting and efficient spaces for the whole community to enjoy. If you know of a project which can help to make an impact where you live, get on Facebook and spread the word!'

In 2015, Jewson received over 2,000 entries into the competition and as a result, it helped to change the future of 14 community projects across Great Britain. A number of suppliers have committed to supporting Building Better Communities 2016, including:- British Gypsum, Marshalls, VELUX, Polypipe and Tarmac.

Merseyside Police comment on Bomb hoaxer David Norris sentencing

MERSEYSIDE Police, Detective Chief Inspector, Mark Kameen said:- "Bomb hoaxes have a massive impact on the community as a whole, and this incident in particular brought a large part of Liverpool City Center to a stand still for a long time on a busy working day. Mr Norris’ actions that day, not only left staff in that business very frightened, but also had a massive impact on neighbouring businesses, when roads were closed, offices evacuated and staff and customers unable to access their places of work or leisure. This incident also took a lot of Police time and resources, with a multi agency response, including:- Mersey Fire and Rescue Service, North West Ambulance Service and Liverpool City Council, all working together to resolve the situation as quickly and as safely as possible. The courts take incidents such as this very seriously and I hope his sentence is a reminder to those who make such hoaxes that they will be caught and dealt with robustly by the Police and the Courts."
