Town Hall display celebrates 150 years of local government in Neston

If you are passing Neston Town Hall in the next week or so, call in and have a look at the Town Council’s display in the entrance hall, an overview of 150 years of local government since July 1867 when the Local Government Act was adopted and Neston could charge a rate and start work on providing decent drains and a supply of clean water.

Local historian and Neston Town Councillor, Susan Chambers, who created the display said “This is just a brief glimpse of some of the achievements of Neston’s councils and some of the people involved over the years”.

The Council’s new exhibition stands will provide a good opportunity to show various aspects of Neston’s life and long history, in a series of displays over the next few months.
