Birkdale ward fundraiser

A very good turn out tonight for the Birkdale Lib Dem dinner held at Tyndall's restaurant. Tyndall's is one of Southport's entries in the Good Food Guide.
The food was excellent. Anthony Hill getting the prize for choosing the most spectacularly presented dish. Despite entreaties I am not going to record what we all ate but my crab soup followed by chicken stuffed with black pudding was very fine.
It was particularly good to see so many of our volunteers turn up. In Birkdale we are lucky to have so many folk who help deliver, stuff envelopes etc. Many of them are actively involved in our community. I was particularly pleased to have the chance of talking with Nova Rimmer who is active in the Friends of Bedford Park group. I had a walk round the park this evening with the dog and there really are some encouraging signs of improvement.
