Green launch as Sefton de­part­ments unite

Midweek Visiter - - Sandgrounder Showcase -

WHY not come along and meet Sefton Coun­cil’s newly-formed Green Sefton team who will be tak­ing to the bor­ough on June 8 to sup­port World Oceans Day?

Green Sefton brings to­gether Coast & Coun­try­side, Parks & Greenspaces, Flood­ing & Coastal Ero­sion, Risk Man­age­ment and Grounds Main­te­nance teams all to­gether to en­sure a joined up ap­proach to the vi­tal man­age­ment, de­vel­op­ment and over­sight of Sefton’s beau­ti­ful coast­line, parks and green spa­ces for years to come.

To cel­e­brate the launch of Green Sefton, team mem­bers will be tak­ing part in a mass clean-up of wa­ter­ways, canals and coastal ar­eas for World Oceans Day on this Thurs­day, June 8.

Res­i­dents and groups who are keen to learn more about Green Sefton have the chance to meet with key mem­bers of the team at Crosby Coastal Park from 11am.

They will ex­plain the work they will do, from land man­age­ment and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment to vi­tal work sur­vey­ing the chang­ing shape of Sefton’s coast and what this means to res­i­dents and vis­i­tors.

Cllr Ian Mon­cur, Sefton Coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for Health and Well­be­ing, said: “Sefton is a clean, green and beau­ti­ful bor­ough that is in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised for its nat­u­ral beauty and we will build on this through the work of Green Sefton.

“Green Sefton has been cre­ated to make sure we con­tinue our fo­cus on a col­lab­o­ra­tive ap­proach to the man­age­ment, de­vel­op­ment and over­sight of our beau­ti­ful coast­line, parks and green spa­ces.

“We be­lieve en­cour­age more com­mu­nity co­he­sion, more in­volve­ment with our vol­un­teers and res­i­dents, as well as eco or­gan­i­sa­tions.

“This event is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to learn more about the won­der­ful work Green Sefton will be do­ing.

“We want Sefton res­i­dents to take pride in their com­mu­nity and make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to their en­vi­ron­ment and the launch is also a great way to find out more about how you can get in­volved in com­mu­nity events and vol­un­teer­ing.”
