The Birkdale Blog is backing a petition launched by local MP John Pugh concerning the police station serving Birkdale and Ainsdale. The wording of John's petition is below and their is a link if you wish to print it off for others to sign. We have also launched and online petition where you can sign up straight away.
The police are carrying out a review of the hours and staffing of Ainsdale Police Station. We the undersigned call upon the Chief Constable to dismiss any suggestion of reduced hours or reduced police staff at Ainsdale Police Station.

We are concerned that the local station may be further downgraded and therefore it is important that we let it be known that a local police station in the heart of the community is kept open at know times. Please sign up and support John's petition.
