Call for level playing field
Kirkby based members of KEIOC and Kirkby residentís action group took part in a signature gathering exercise in Kirkby town centre.
The petition was a resounding success with the public showing a great deal of concern to a 55,000 all seater stadium being built in their town centre. The petition is calling for :
KNOWSLEY COUNCIL TO AFFORD KIRKBY RESIDENTS WITH THE SAME FACILITY THAT EVERTON FOOBALL CLUB HAS PROMISED TO IT'S FAN BASE. A BALLOT.
It doesnít seem much to ask but both Everton Football Club and Knowsley Borough Council seem to have differing views on how, who and when.
Everton football club propose to ballot the fans but have no plans to enter a period of consultation with its fan base. Interesting! The plot begins to thicken, Knowsley council propose to have a consultation period for the residents but no plans for a ballot.
This would be the biggest single issue to effect the residents of Kirkby since Knowsley was formed in the 70's. We advocate a level playing field with consultation exercises & ballots for both fans & residents alike.
The ball is formally in your court as far as Evertonians are concerned Bill.
How do you want to be remembered by future generations of Evertonians? As a John Houlding or as a George Mahon?
