NEWS FROM THE WAVERTREE SOCIETY (Jan.2019):

Other items from our Newsletter 225

THANK YOU ALL
At our invitation, the children of Our Lady of Good Help Primary School sang carols at the Wavertree Lock-up on Monday 10th December, to coincide with the switching-on of our Christmas lights. The standard of singing was exceptionally high. We are very grateful to the children and staff who made the event possible, and to Co-op Food who provided mince pies and sweets.

MANWEB FIELDS UPDATE
Further to the article in the last Newsletter, we have now established that C&PS Ltd - lessee of the former playing fields since 2016 - is an Isle of Man company whose directors were Charles & Pauline Smith. Charles Smith, a former Liverpool scrap metal dealer, died in 2017.

We are trying to find out whether any progress has been made with the development proposal outlined in our March 2016 Newsletter (No.210
). This, it would seem, was the motive for C&PS Ltd's acquisition of the lease. As yet, however, neither Liverpool City Council's Property Services department nor C&PS  have responded to our enquiries.

You can read more about the land, and our Society's attempts to have it brought back into recreational use, elsewhere on our website:
