Sefton Bus Review – Have your say.

Sefton is the latest area to be reviewed as part of a wider review of the whole Liverpool City Region bus network, with the aim of creating an improved and simpler network.

It’s also about ensuring that the increasingly limited funding we have for supported services – those services that are funded by Merseytravel as they are not commercially viable – are used in the most effective way and focused where there is most need.

People who live or work in Sefton will be able to comment on proposed changes to the area’s bus network during a final consultation period starting on Monday 16th January through until Thursday 26th January.

Details of the proposed changes, including maps, can be found by following the link below:

Certificate of Appreciation to our oldest resident.

Cllrs Chambers and Hounsell presented Bob Heap with a certificate of appreciation for his part in our first Christmas tree switch on. Bob – 95 years old – was born in Thornton and lived there for most of his life never having moved far from its boundaries. He possesses a wealth of knowledge about local history and has seen the small parish change over the last century. On receiving the certificate he said that he hoped that the first Christmas tree might bring our community closer together. The Parish Council would like to thank all residents who came to the switch on and is already planning for a larger event next year

Christmas is Coming!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Thornton Christmas Tree switch on this evening.

The event was a great success with over 200 people and one horse in attendance! See our galleries section for more photos.

Merry Christmas from everyone at Thornton Parish Council.
