And The Floods Came

 Be prepared in case of floods said our council. But as expected the rain came, our roads and gullies weren’t prepared, as shown above. Victorian infrastructure, no maintenance, the inevitable result perhaps of austerity with a large dose of mismanagement, or is it no management, too?

I am a pensioner. I was a strong supporter of the rights of elderly and disabled residents of West Lancashire to receive equal treatment from the old Tory WLBC that unfortunately did 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, with the help of Cllr Adrian Owens who wrote "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".

    1. Aughton has 12 Parish councillors when all parish wards are filled, and 5 Borough councillors who are in post. Sadly, 3 of them are Halsall residents, 1 is resident in Downholland parish and only Cllr O’Toole is from Aughton. As they seem only to appear occasionally at the monthly Parish council meetings they are not much use to anybody. I doubt they knew about the floods this morning!
