Books to help people with dementia in LiveWire libraries
LiveWire has launched its new Books on Prescription scheme, as part of a ground-breaking national initiative. Each of the 11 public libraries in Warrington now has a collection of books to support and inform people with dementia, their carers, family & friends.
Jan Puzylo, Senior LiveWire Advisor said “Dementia presents a key national health challenge with a profound social, personal and economic impact. We hope this new scheme will play its part by spreading understanding and knowledge.”

UPDATE: Proposed regeneration of play and recreation facilities at Birchwood Forest Park
At the May 2014 Town Council meeting, outgoing Chair, Councillor Pauline Nelson, was delighted to be able to announce that WREN has awarded the Town Council and the local community funding of £50,000 toward the costs of refurbishing the play and recreation facilities within Birchwood Forest Park.
The Town Council and Warrington Borough Council (the landowner) are also providing significant amounts of capital towards the project; the first phase of which will see overgrown areas thinned out, improvements to the play equipment and play area and the installation of some informal fitness equipment.
The Town Council is hoping that in future years we may also be able to look at improvements to the informal kickabout pitch and the skateboard/BMX area.
The Borough Council has recently received tenders for the proposals for additional play equipment and outdoor gym equipment and has started tree thinning works on the Forest Park.

' Serving Our Local Community'
Our motto and ethos is ‘Serving our Local Community’ which is something which we take great pride in doing.
Birchwood Town Council, responsible for the administration of the area, is quite unique in that it has its own community maintenance resource currently made up of three full time Maintenance Operatives and three part-time/temporary Maintenance Operatives. They are on hand five days a week to tackle things such as litter picking and landscape maintenance. All our staff are competent and are equipped with the knowledge, support and equipment required to do their job.
In addition there are three part-time office staff who, together with local Councillors, deal with matters of concern to our residents on a daily basis.
We also employ the services of a part-time Facilities Caretaker/Cleaner who takes bookings for the Community Meeting Room and keeps the Town Council's premises clean and tidy.
We are located at Parkers Farm, Delenty Drive, Birchwood
