I am a pensioner. I am a strong supporter of the rights of elderly and disabled residents of West Lancashire to receive equal treatment from the WLBC that unfortunately does not agree, leading to the social exclusion of some immobile disabled residents. My personal suggestion of honouring the County Regiment led to us having probably the proudest day ever in West Lancashire. I wrote "Dear Cllr Owens. I'm writing to let you know how pleased I am my suggestion of honouring our County regiment is to be proposed to Council. It is the greatest honour we can bestow on our brave soldiers who make or risk the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe, and I appreciate what Council is doing". Such a shame then that a stupid borough councillor, Sudworth, untruthfully claimed the idea came from Cllr Owens who responded to me "You will be pleased to learn that this evening the motion passed unanimously. Colonel Amlot from the Regiment was accorded a standing ovation and we look forward to a parade and march through Ormskirk next year. Thank you". After the Parade I wrote to Cllr Owens "I was reading through the emails we exchanged after I made the suggestion to honour our County Regiment. As you said today, we got there in the end, and what an end? This celebration of our Regiment was quite simply, as my original mail said, the greatest honour of all. To see all these young people who risk their lives for us was so moving. Little did I know what Council could do and how our residents would react to it all. Well, we should all be so proud of this great day. I know I am".
