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
