Mayoral Briefings with Cllr NEIL FUREY
THIS week I wish to reflect on the work of our emergency services.
Recent horrific events including the Grenfell Tower fire in London have demonstrated the bravery of our emergency services.
Firefighters risked their lives to save others from a terrible fire.
My thoughts are with the families of those who lost loved ones and I hope those people still in hospital can recover from their injuries.
The local community has come together to help everyone affected and let’s hope the area can recover from such a tragic event.
On Friday, June 16 my wife and I attended a charity launch night for Blossom’s Legacy at St Francis of Assisi School in Skelmersdale.
This registered charity has been started in memory of young Blossom Iris Kelly to raise funds to help educate young children about learning to swim from a very early age.
It is also raising funds for CPR training to prevent death from drowning.
My wife and I wish to thank Kris and Vicky Kelly for raising awareness of this issue by creating Blossom’s Legacy.
You can find out more by visiting the weebsite www.blossomslegacy.org
We wish them well with their fundraising efforts and campaign.
Finally, I see summer has arrived and temperatures have soared.
I hope everyone has enjoyed the recent very warm weather.
