Party With Political Growth In West Lancashire

From Our West Lancashire  “2017 saw our membership increase further; our newsletter circulation grow by another 200 recipients; and our Facebook following increase five-fold. Most importantly a second Owl councillor was elected who doesn’t take orders from party whips or party HQs, but represents the residents who elected them.

“Thank you so much for your support during 2017 and we hope you’ll continue on the journey with us through 2018. Our committee meets later this week and we would welcome your ideas and comments on the direction we take this coming year. We’d especially welcome your support as a paid up member. Please consider this.

“Our Annual Report video for 2017 can be viewed here at http://www.ourwestlancashire.com/annualreport2017.htm  We hope you enjoy watching it and please share it with others who might be interested.

“Catch up with our activities from 2017. This short video gives a quick insight into what we have done in West Lancashire during 2017. There’s more to come in 2018.

“Read about the extra Councillor’s Allowances that certain Councillors have been getting. Read about how the main parties reacted to our petition about student houses (HMOs) and Council Tax. See what we’re doing to address parking and traffic concerns. But also, see some of what pro-active things we’ve done, tidying the community and raising funds for the Christmas tree at Parish Church, Ormskirk. Join us in 2018 , making the Borough a better place to live”.

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".
