Botanic Garden-workers takeover?

The Southport Visiter covers our initiative to set a workers' co-op to take over the Botanic Nursery operatition:

Birkdale ward politician Iain Brodie-Browne said officers were already investigating the possibility for staff to take over the nursery as a private business.


He told the Visiter: “There is a lot of competition out there and if the nurserymen want to make a go of the business themselves I think that would be an excellent move.

“Over the years they have produced excellent results and I am sure that they could turn the Botanic operation into a viable business.



“I am very keen on giving staff the opportunity to take over and run those bits of the council where a viable business can be built. I am confident that if the staff owned and controlled the operation they could make a go of it.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
