SAVE THE PRIORY PUB

WE THE UNDERSIGNED HEREBY CALL UPON THE SEFTON COUNCIL PLANNING COMMITTEE TO REFUSE ANY APPLICATIONS FOR DEMOLITION OR CHANGE OF USE OF THE PRIORY PUBLIC HOUSE SEFTON ROAD LITHERLAND.THIS FAMOUS 200 YEARS OLD PLUS, LOCAL LITHERLAND LANDMARK WAS A FORMER COACHING HOUSE AND IS STEEPED IN HISTORY NAMELY AS A FORMER PLACE OF WORSHIP AND AS A MEETING PLACE FOR LITHERLAND URBAN DISTRICT COUNCILLORS PRIOR TO THE BUILDING OF ST PHILLIPS CHURCH AND LITHERLAND TOWN HALL. THIS PUB WAS ALSO FREQUENTED BY THE WORLD FAMOUS BEATLES WHO PLAYED THEIR FIRST GIG AS THE BEATLES AT LITHERLAND TOWN HALL IN THE EARLY SIXTIES. IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT A MOST VALUABLE COMMUNITY ASSET AND SHOULD BE KEPT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN AT ALL COSTS.

Discussion

  • Mark Bellew A lot of money has been invested into our area, building new homes and making this a nicer place to live. Losing the Priory would be a massive backwards step! The Priory is a local pub full of history and tradition, where better for all our new neighbours to meet and become part of the community! Save our local and our community!

  • Thanks to all of you who care about this travesty of justice and taking time out to fight for the Priory! one more simple but effective way to help is to email a protest letter to the Champion newspaper ......editor@champ news.com ... this will be a great help to raise the campaign profile and of course get everyone you can to sign the petition and e-mail the Champion to protest about this outrage! Merry Christmas to you all ,Thanks again, Dave Flynn,spokesperson, Save the Priory pub action group. E-mail us at thepeoplespub@hotmail.com for information or to become a member of our proposed cooperative when we win!
  • We have written a strong letter of protest to the ward councillors about the total lack of communication with local residents before Chorley housing bought the pub to knock it down! They only told 2 of our 3 ward councillors about their presentation of the scheme 24 hours beforehand, effectively ensuring they couldn't attend in time and didn't even tell cllr Moncur about it at all ? ? why did they behave so undemocratically ? Even their presentation was held in the afternoon from 3-30 till 5-30 meaning many locals couldn't get there in time if working and was held AFTER they had already bought the property ! Their behavior is appalling to say the least !.....Dave Flynn, Spokesperson.
  • planning hasn't been granted yet that's why we are petitioning the council to vote against any proposals including this one, to demolish our beloved priory pub the hub of our community! and long may it last!!
