Servite Housing Success

Many thanks to Servite Housing who responded promptly to my call on behalf of a resident on Rodney Street who needed urgent repairs.

Meanwhile, I am liaising with Wirral Partnership Homes on behalf of several residents on Price Street who raised issues during our recent survey of their area.

Well 16.09% to be precise. That was the miserable turnout in the recent Euro elections in Birkenhead & Tranmere ward. This was the second lowest in Wirral with only Bidston showing a lower turnout.

There are wider issues relating to the causes and implications of low voter turnout. However, it is interesting to note that turnout amongst voters with postal votes was much higher (63% versus 27% across Wirral).

If you want to register for a postal vote you can download a form here or contact me and I’ll get one to you.
