Liberal Democrat Councillor Marianne Welsh on Bispham Road

Keen eyed Marianne Welsh, a Liberal Democrat councillor in Norwood Ward recently saw a young schoolgirl get hit in the face by the branches of a overhanging tree in Bispham Road when walking along the pavement. Marianne took a photo of the offending tree and sent it to Sefton Council recommending the tree be cut back as a matter of urgency.

Marianne says “I did not want someone else to be hit by these branches which were overhanging the pavement as a serious injury possibly to an eye could result”.

Within 24 hours of Marianne reporting the tree its branches were pruned. Since then the quick acting councillor has identified a number of trees in her area to the Council that also need urgent attention.
