Cllr Ian Lewis left an annotation ( 3 January 2011)

Quote-marks Hello Margaret

I am hoping an options appraisal due in January will give the go ahead for a new allotment site on Council-owned land behind the Sure Start Children's Centre on Twickenham Drive, Leasowe. I reported on that here: http://ianlewis2007.wordpress.com/2010/1...

I look forward to seeing the reply to your request!

Best wishes
