Carbon Monoxide summer campaign

I am currently working with Lynn Griffiths, the President of Carbon Monoxide Awareness (and who lives in nearby Runcorn) and with Fred Pye from Liverpool City Council on the city's next campaign.

We have decided to run a summer campaign, alerting families to the need to take portable CO detectors with them, when they go on holiday. Fred has been in touch with Rapid and it looks like they will once again discount their alarms for the period of the campaign so that we can get the maximum number out there. They are really good supporters of the campaign. I will let you know more about the plans as we develop them.

We have also agreed that Manchester will be the provincial city where we celebrate the final day of this year's National Awareness Week in November. I have been in touch with colleagues over there on the Labour group to get the ball rolling.

We have been meeting in the Mansion House in Calderstones Park, and those magnolia trees are simply equisite at the moment! Do go and see them.
