Lastest from Alison

Congratulations to students on the Wirral who received their A-level results and GCSE results recently and for those moving from school to work.

It is always a great pleasure visiting schools in my constituency to offer my support and congratulations to students, teachers and support staff.

It is a stressful time for students and their families as they wait to see if a place at university has been accepted.

Though it is also an exciting time marking a new chapter in many students’ lives as they get even closer to achieving what they want to do as a career and their aspirations.

Whilst this is to be celebrated we need opportunities for all our young people. It is important that no young person is left behind in having a chance to achieve their full potential.

I want to see more apprenticeships especially those that involve progression to higher level qualifications giving the person a better standard of technical expertise.

All young people deserve a chance of being skilled enough to enter the labour market and this includes the need for better technical expertise.

Labour’s shadow education secretary of state, Tristram Hunt, has also voiced concerns about losing the current structure of AS and A-levels.

We need rigorous exam testing but we should not remove helpful structures that help students understand their progress.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of officially opening the new Port Sunlight River Park to the public.

It was great to see everybody there and it was a very nice afternoon. I would like to thank those who turned out for the event and showed their support for this new beautiful public space.

The attraction will add to South Wirral’s cultural offer but above all it will benefit local residents which I am most pleased about.

Residents close to the site have had to endure living near to a landfill site for too long so to see what the site looks like now is a significant transformation and one that I was determined would happen.

The park has walking paths, lovely plants and flowers and stunning views across to Liverpool to enjoy.

Community is very important and that is why I am keen that the local community continue to play a part in the park going forward whether that be volunteering in an active role or just making use of what the park has to offer.

I would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to partners who have got us to this point. I have very much enjoyed being involved with the project and I am very proud that it is now open.

The opening was very successful and the park is a fantastic community asset that will be enjoyed for many years to come.

If you were unable to attend the opening then not to worry as you will be able to experience the views and see the park in all its glory anytime from now.

If you would like to be involved or have ideas for the park then do get in touch with me on 0151 645 6590.

The Port Sunlight River Park will finally open to the public in an official opening ceremony and everybody will be welcome to come along,

Speaking about the imminent opening Alison said: “I am very excited that we are so close to a day that I have been waiting for quite a long time now. 

The public can finally enjoy this new public space which has been transformed from a dock landfill site into a stunning new park. I am looking forward to officially opening the park and hope to see many people there. 

The views over to Liverpool make this park quite special and I hope that people will get a lot of pleasure from it in future years. I’d like to thank all involved in getting us to this point. I have received a lot of interest from local residents who have been enquiring about the park so I know that people are looking forward to being able to make use of it.”

She added: “I am hoping this park will show off the area to tourists and contribute to Wirral South’s cultural offer but also I really hope that above all local people will find much enjoyment from it.”
