May­oral Brief­ings with Cllr NEIL FUREY

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

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.
