Today I was at a meeting with my two ward colleagues, Councillors Peter Millea and Richard Oglethorpe, and one of our neighbourhood officers. Each ward in Liverpool has a different amount of neighbourhood fund to spend - decided on by the local councillors. We don't have a huge amount- 40,000 in fact - and needless to say we have a wishlist that would cost a lot more. What we want to do is based on a mixture of knowledge of the ward and feedback from local people. We went through a menu of possible spending options and agreed to meet again in around a months time.
