Lamp post is the Southport Civic Colours retained

Over the years Birkdale Lib Dem Councillors have campaign to keep some of the things that give our town its character. We have sought to preserve the footpaths that are paved with the small blue tiles ( from Buckley in North Wales) that were laid by our Victorian forbears.

We have also striven to maintain the civic colours on lamposts. This has been a hot topic recently as the council began removing old lamp standards and erectly ugly galvanised steel replacements. I'm pleased to say that after a lot of community pressure the cream and burgundy paint has been got out with pleasing results

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

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 Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.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.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
