Toys, toiletries, tinned food, jars and packet food will also be greatly appreciated, so that we can make up food/present boxes. If you have any items you would like to donate please pop down and drop them in, every item helps no matter how small.

Guardian: You’ve been asked to have your say on the NHS. You just don’t know about it. (And the deadline is MONDAY)

In essence, the Dept of Health gives a mandate to the NHS, setting out objectives, waiting times, cancer treatment, mental health services etc, etc. A new mandate is being prepared and the Government is inviting public comments on what should be in it – but it isn’t making much of an effort to encourage people to comment – as this article makes clear.

After you have read the article you can give your views here – but don’t forget the deadline is MONDAY.

Wirral to be part of devolution deal for Merseyside

“NOT PERFECT”, “POLITICALLY DRIVEN” BUT “FIRST STEP IN LONG Wirral Council leader Phil Davies signs the devolution deal. 'There was a strong pragmatic reason to sign this deal'JOURNEY TO REBUILD ECONOMY OF THE REGION”

Merseyside sixth region to agree devolution deal with government

First Merseyside Mayor to be elected in 2017 

BBC News     Council press release        Official text of the deal     What the devolution deal will mean for Wirral

“Since 2010 the six local authorities have seen more than £1.5 billion cut from their collective budgets and the Comprehensive Spending Review next week is widely expected to see further cuts of up to 40% to local government and public service funds.

While this deal does not come close to replacing the lost revenue it does give [us] greater control over more of the money available to the region”  Council leader Phil Davies                                                                              Liverpool City Region leaders




End the cuts to Merseyside Police – over 11,000 people have already signed the petition from Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy

Jane Kennedy, the Police Commissioner, is so concerned about the effect that more cuts by the Tory government will have on Merseyside police that she has created an online petition. If it gets 100,000 signatures it will be considered for a parliamentary debate. Over 11,000 people have already signed the petition. Please click here to signPolicePetition
