Lunt Meadows is a wonderful nature reserve for birds and animals.
It’s also home to some of a handful of archaeological sites in the UK of Mesolithic settlements.
We are very luckly to have Lunt Meadows in Sefton and Lancashire Wildlife Trust showed Shadow Environment Minister, Alex Sobel MP and I their amazing work.
The Wildlife Trust are doing great work at Lunt and at Freshfield with the red squirrel conservation project.
We had an excellent discussion about the challenges of flooding at Lunt and nearby land and the threat to the town of Maghull and the role that Lunt Meadows played last year and will play in the future in alleviating flooding.
The pumping of sewage into our rivers has been a problem in the Alt and the cuts made by the Prime Minister, Liz Truss when she was Environment Secretary have made it that much harder for the Environment Agency to prevent sewage going into rivers and brooks as well as onto beaches.
We also spoke to Stuart Bennett from Save Rimrose Valley about the campaign to protect Rimrose Valley Park against National Highways’ plans for a dual carriageway for heavy goods vehicles from the Port of Liverpool.
My family enjoy walking in Lunt Meadows and the addition of a visitor centre will make this an even better attraction. The Wildlife Trust deserve huge credit for their work in reaching this point in just a few years.
