  1. I like item 3 on the agenda, perhaps we could adopt that at Aughton. We may see some of our borough councillors there more often.

    • Oh dear, I’m not at all sure about that. Halsall has an excellent borough councillor now after Stephenson. The 11 July 2016 Minutes of the Aughton Parish Council state “Councillor David Westley was attending the meeting as a Borough Councillor but offered some useful information on Agenda Item 8a”. 8. LANCASHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL: a) Changes to where LCC delivers its services – consultation (previously notified to members) – to consider any comments. And I reported that “Such was the impact of what Westley said, that whatever he DID say, was not useful enough to be minuted. But WLR reported it anyway “Then, a buzz of antipathy swept the room as the Chairman called Cllr Wally Westley who had deposited himself in the rear seats with Aughton Cllr Captain RN (Retired) Currie. Something to do with Moorgate Children’s Centre and the Moorgate Munchkins being closed by LCC and having to share space in the Ormskirk Library? As he left the meeting a resident whispered that “Old Wally was wearing socks with a red elephant design on them”. Surely not! The Westleyphant believing his own image? Whatever next? Could it be a fashion statement, old fogies tend to look back on their youth and make them, but red elephants!” We wonder why the Official Parish minutes didn’t record the apathy generated by this unwelcome intruder?
