*Volunteers clean up the Dingle 


A KENSINGTON regeneration company has had its funding pulled by Liverpool City Council.

Kensington Regeneration Community Interest Company was given £98,000 of taxpayers’ cash – yet less than £10,000 was handed out in grants to community groups, according to Cllr Nick Small.

The council says the CIC refused to provide information it requested.


A NEW picnic area on Riverside Drive, hanging baskets and painted railings appeared in the Dingle in just one day – thanks to the efforts of the people who live and work there.

 About 60 local volunteers  (main picture) took part in the clean-up, a contribution to European Neighbours Day which takes place in more than 30 countries.

During the day they collected 100 full bags of litter, removed fly-tipping and eight skips were provided for residents to dispose of bulky waste.

Two people also faced prosecution for allowing their dogs to foul and one for dropping litter.


TWELVE social landlords and four local authorities in Liverpool have launched a joint project to retrofit 100,000 homes.

Dubbed ‘Project Viridis’ the estimated £50 billion retrofit scheme is being co-ordinated by Liverpool Mutual Homes.

The first stage will be the installation of photovoltaic panels to make the most of the government's Feed-In Tariff scheme. It will be followed by energy-saving schemes, conservation, outsourcing and power generation.
