Update on I love Southport because.......


The "I love Southport because ...." campaign is mainly funded by £5,000 provided by Southport Area Committee, which was agreed at its early February meeting. Birkdale Lib Dem councillor Simon Shaw was the driving force behind getting the funding for this fantastic initiative, over some opposition from Ainsdale Conservative councillors. However their more sensible Tory colleagues from Dukes Ward (covering the town centre and shoreside Birkdale) managed to embarrass them into finally voting for the idea which Simon had proposed.
