Southport Councillors branch out


Cambridge Ward councillors have dug deep to restore greenery to a town’s road after several trees were found to be dead or dying.

When Sefton Council revealed that they had no money to replace the six trees in Cambridge Avenue it was the signal for Councillors Pat keith and Sue McGuire to spring into action and offer to replace three of them with payment from ward funds.

“It’s a pretty tree lined road and six missing trees would have greatly detracted  from the landscape so we’re delighted to be able to find the money to replace three of them,” said Councillor Keith. “The new trees will be planted to balance the space released.”

Councillor  McGuire said: “ As soon as we saw the state of the dying trees we were determined to do something about it. It’s a pity the council were unable to find funds to replace all six but at least we’re very pleased to be able to pay for the planting of three.”
