  1. Victoria Park
    Started by grandsounder 31/07/2014

    Is Victoria Park a public or private park? I only ask because during the summer months it seems to be closed to the public more often than itís open. I know someone mentioned this in another thread only the other day. Itís been closed for a week now in preparation for the Flower Show, and last year...

    Started by clyde bank 27/05/2010

    I thought it might be fun to have a bit of a game. I fancied word association. I'll give a word and the next person adds a word they associate with the one I've given and each person adds another word they asociate with the last So my word is Book :)

    Started by libraryguy 30/07/2014

    Can someone tell me the merit of top dressing so many roads in Southport? Is it the responsibility of Sefton Council or the Highways Agency? Someone seems to have gone mad wanting to resurface so many roads. They're now starting on Guildford road and Benthams way. It was only a few weeks ago...

    People have commented before. Southport would be immensely improved with less litter. We went for a walk yesterday, around the Marine Lake, and in the footpath behind Matalan to the W lancs Sailing Club was deep in rubbish, quite a bit of which had obviously been there a long time. I'm sure...
