AC­CESS IS IM­POR­TANT

RE FISH­ER­MAN’S Path cross­ing.

Safety im­prove­ments at the cross­ing are wel­come, but I feel strongly that it should not be closed un­less there is a vi­able al­ter­na­tive, for ex­am­ple a bridge, put in place.

Other­wise ac­cess to Formby Pine Woods from Fresh­field Sta­tion will be made much harder, in­volv­ing walk­ing some dis­tance down an of­ten busy (and so dan­ger­ous) road to the Na­tional Trust Re­serve.

Fur­ther­more, the cross­ing is an in­trin­sic part of Sefton’s cir­cu­lar cy­cle and walk­ing route, which links up with paths through the pine woods, from Formby to Hightown, from there to Water­loo, and from Water­loo back to Ains­dale via the Leeds/Liver­pool Canal and Cheshire Lines – a route that is mostly all off-road and is of great use for cy­clists, not only for recre­ational pur­poses but also to get safely from one place to another within Sefton.

BOUND­ARY ROUTE

IT SEEMS fairly ob­vi­ously not to have been, but has the pur­chase of an ease­ment for a foot­path along the golf course bound­ary from Fresh­field Sta­tion been con­sid­ered? Phil Mor­gan Via email

WHERE ARE THE PO­LICE?

WHY are peo­ple so sur­prised about night-time bur­glar­ies?

It’s easy to see why, there are no po­lice around!

Even dur­ing the day we don’t see any cop­pers pa­trolling.

We have a gov­ern­ment that doesn’t care. Mike via email
