Councillor Nigel Ashton said; “I am appalled that Southport’s Jewel in the Crown is now at very serious risk. It is a key attraction bringing in many visitors to Churchtown boosting the local economy. Botanic has given huge pleasure to generations of local families. It must not be destroyed.”
Councillor John Dodd, who has worked closely with volunteers of the Botanic Gardens Community Association for a number of years, is working along side the group to safeguard the three jobs. He said; “It is vital that everyone works together, volunteers, local residents and politicians, to stop this council madness.”
