As Mayor I have been called upon to open all manner of things this year. But there was a first on my recent visit to Formby Library when I was asked by Formby Rotary to cut the ribbon on a new park bench to mark the clubs 50th Anniversary. Over that period the Rotarians have raised several hundred thousand pounds for good causes locally and internationally. Local residents will know them for the Christmas Carol Wagon. Speaking to members they have some exciting plans for the half-century celebrations.
Whilst in the Library I met with local voluntary sector groups who had stalls including the Alzheimer Society and The Stroke Association
