I am privileged to have been selected by my fellow Councillors to be your Town Mayor for the Municipal Year 2013/14.

During this period I hope to see this historic town begin to revive and the Town Council continue the good work that has begun, alongside Community Groups and residents alike.

Also I along with the Mayoress will be doing our utmost to promote the Town in whatever way possible.

My main aims will be to continue the delivery of a new Town Hall that we can all be proud of and that the entire community can use, and also be proud of and also to continue to promote events like the (Carnival, Christmas Lights etc) and support in any way possible local groups and charities.

The Mayoress and myself intend to hold various events which will be held throughout the year in order to raise funds for local charities.

Chosen charities for the year 2013/14 include the Prescot Historic Society, Willowbrook Hospice, Bryer Road Environmental Group and Prescot Parish Church Choir.

    Will our food bank be opening any time soon?the summer holidays are fast approaching and a lot of children will go without a good meal for 6weeks without your help!this is something I feel very strongly about and think it has been over looked for long enough help these children it has been well documented a healthy well fed and watered child has better concentration in school leading to aspiring little adults.this is why free water machines were fitted in all schools and healthy food was made top menu to promote heathy living/eating yes?well well this needs to carry on during holidays as some children/parents depend on that free school meal as there main meal as cost of living spirals out of reach for some families please help them this summer/winter please.

    First of all congratulations on your post. The people of Prescot are really rallying round and trying to improve our (once) wonderful town. The shops need traders, especially the old Somerfield shop which would enable people to shop locally rather than having to go down to Tesco. The cemetery is a disgrace and we have tried to negotiate with KMBC for its improvement. Our families are buried there and deserve to rest in a better and more secure place than it is at present.
    There is a lot of concern by us Prescotians, we were once very proud of our town, and we want it returning to its former status.
    Hopefully you will be able to have some input into this on our behalf.
