OUR THANKS TO INSPECTOR BLACKBURNOur neighbourhood inspector Don Blackburn is about to move onto pastures new. He will take up the position of custody inspector at St Helens Police Station from next Monday. Don has had probably one of the hardest areas to manage within the town because his work involved the Saints Knowsley Road Stadium policing.
Rainhill councillors, Mike Doyle, Joe DeAsha and myself have worked well alongside Don and we will miss his humour and good advice. We all wish him well in his new challenging role.
Replacing Don will be Neil Kavanagh, who has working in St Helens previously and had extensive knowledge of the wards including Rainhill. We look forward to meeting Neil and building a strong relationship with him and his team.
