To celebrate its centenary in 2009, Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services (LCVS) offered the Gateacre Society a free tree, to be planted somewhere within our area. The location eventually decided upon was in Woolton Road, on the green triangle behind the telephone kiosk. We are pleased to report that the tree - a silver birch - was planted earlier this year, and is now thriving.

The recent repainting and installation of new signage at the Bear & Staff pub has apparently been carried out without the benefit of planning permission. As the premises are situated within the Gateacre Village Conservation Area, we anticipate that a retrospective application will be insisted upon by the Planning Department.

Please make a note of these
