Fireweed - Summer Fantasy and Beyond - 18/8/2014
Column by Sandra Gibson which celebrates the persistence of wildlife in urban conditions.
During the summer season the media offer us the experience of a spacious and gracious life outdoors. I am struck by a magazine photograph of garden chairs so elegant they seem like sculpture, so fragile you wouldn’t risk sitting on them and so expensive they need a security guard. Read more

Campaign against proposal to close 11 libraries - 15/8/2014
Liverpool Council’s proposal to close or hand over to volunteers eleven of the existing nineteen libraries is a major blow to the cultural life of the city and attempts to promote reading. To take one example, if Walton, Fazakerley and Spellow Lane libraries were all to close, north Liverpool would be a cultural wasteland, with users of the service having to travel to Norris Green, Croxteth or into town.

Peaceful Giants - 29/7/2014
Ritchie Hunter has another look at the visit of the Giants to Liverpool:
On Lime St, there was cheering and clapping as the elderly woman came down the middle of the road. But this wasn't the giant granny – it was just an old lady pushing a shopping trolley, trying to get to the other end. When she realised everyone was cheering her, she smiled graciously. Around the corner, we stood at the side of the road holding peace banners, trying to counter the glorification of war. Read more

Gaza Protest in London - 24/7/2014
John Owen reports from the march held in London on July 19th against the Israeli bombing of Gaza.
"From a warm and sunny Liverpool just coming awake the pitta patter of tourist feet and squeak of luggage in search of cheap digs a coach miraculously appeared to whisk promptly in 6 hours to London.
The group slowly morphed together over the journey that was to become the Liverpool friends of Palestine contingent going away to make our mark and protest over the bombing of Gaza by Israel."

The Good Samaritan - Short story by Sharon Riley - 27/6/2014
Walking in Princes Park on a sunny, autumn afternoon and 'It's oh so quiet' now – as in Bjork's song title – but I remember the Brouhaha Festival in July when the multitudes gathered see the parade enter the park followed by live music and a riot of colours.
Then, seeing the tennis courts, I give a wry smile recalling how I first learned how to cycle there in 2005! Also that February when the park was covered in a white blanket with the snow flakes drifting down from the heavens, making it look not too dissimilar to Narnia.

Byrd Song - Short story by Andrew Lee-Hart - 13/6/2014
I am not sure if it was the music of William Byrd that drove Saul mad, or whether he was already mad and just looking for a trigger. In the end it doesn't matter, and anyway, last time I saw him he seemed in a state of ecstasy that few can reach. God knows where he is now.
We worked together in the old central library in Angel Row Nottingham, now demolished and replaced by something more modern and high tech. Outside the city centre where it is cheaper to build things.

Berlin's Radical Underground - 12/6/2014
By Tom George: "My first visit Berlin six years ago coincided with the global financial system going into meltdown. It was all over every screen in my hostel, with panicked-looking people in suits trying to explain incomprehensible columns of figures. But I wasn't there as a financial journalist; I was on a mission to explore a very different universe which exists at the heart of Germany's capital - the radical underground of Berlin..." Read more

John Davies has an international reputation for his B&W photographs of dramatic urban landscapes but during May this year he decided to make a series of colour portraits of people who are regular visitors to Sefton Park Meadows in Liverpool.

George Garrett Archive - 3rd - 31st May 2014
Going to the newly refurbished Liverpool Central Library is a weird experience. With its shiny up-to-the-minute feel, it serves as a hint of what public services could be like, if only a decent amount of resources were dedicated to them. On the other hand, it also doubles as an excuse for Liverpool council to point to as they devastate public services - including public libraries - and the lives of the people who rely on them.
