Taking action to support residents in Picton

Thank you to everyone who came to my  coffee afternoon in Picton to discuss a wide range of community issues.

The meeting was part of my continuing engagement with constituents across Liverpool Wavertree through regular one-to-one surgeries, casework, social media and community meetings.

Thank you also to Archbishop Blanch School for hosting the meeting and allowing us to use one of its rooms.

Housing issues, anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, community relations and the devastating impact of cuts forced on the council by government grant reductions of £444 million since 2010 all came up.

In the coming weeks I will be working with Labour councillors in the Ward to follow up every issue with local housing associations, the police, local businesses, environmental health and other agencies to ensure that everyone is full engaged in supporting Picton.

I’ll be making sure that everyone who came to the meeting gets a report back on my actions and their outcomes.

I am hosting community coffee mornings across all the wards in the constituency – Old Swan, Kensington and Fairfield, Church, Childwall and Wavertree.

I know that people have real personal concerns as well as wider community issues that they want to raise with me. I hold regular surgeries and you can book an appointment by telephoning 0151 228 1628 or emailing luciana.berger.mp@parliament.uk.
