Wow, what a day. We’ve spent the day hearing all about the amazing and exciting opportunities happening in Speke for local people. We loved supporting the day and truly support all those worthy winners… the Police have really worked their magic giving the money over to the community to decide what they want to see. We can see so many opportunities to help and support so many of you by pooling our resources and working together… apologies to all those who voted for us but our decision to withdraw our application was a considered one. We don’t think we should have to “get lucky” in order to help our most vulnerable access vital services that ought to be available as a statutory right. We wish all you the very best of luck – remember we want you to VOTE for a better government, lobby MP’s and demand access for services – be the voice of those who aren’t heard!
