Legal Objections to Sell Off – 10 days left!

You have 10 days to send in objections to the  selling off Sefton Park Meadows by Liverpool City Council.

The campaign to stop the sale of our beautiful and valuable Sefton Park Meadows – part of the Sefton Parklands is NOT A DONE DEAL! Postcards are in News from Nowhere bookshop on Bold Street and Oxfam shop on Allerton Road. You can also download and print off a letter  and send in yourself. Or use our electronic version of the letter to write in your comments and send direct to the council.

PLEASE SEND US A COPY OR LET US KNOW YOU HAVE WRITTEN IN TO OBJECT.   We want to lodge at least 1,000 objections against this sell off.                                            Email us at

Thanks – let’s show Mayor Anderson and his Cabinet they can’t sell off valuable and historic Liverpool public open space around Sefton Park without a fight!

MAY 27th 2013

Sefton Park Meadows

Thanks to all those hardy people who came out in the rain and wind to our second MASS PICNIC on the Meadowlands on Bank Holiday Monday! The really committed even enjoyed their outdoor picnic!

We had great fun, despite the weather, and over 600 people joined in over the afternoon for music, food, games, dog training, information and to show their support.

Highlights were  the Socialist Choir who had even composed their own song, Dan’s sack races for kids and adults, and Phoebe and Catherine’s dog agility and pet grooming area! Dogs and their walkers love this space too… All part of our campaign against Liverpool City Council’s SELL OFF of this historic and valuable public open space around Sefton Park.

We’re showing Liverpool City Council that greenspace makes good social and business sense. Mayor Anderson, it’s also a fantastic space for events!
