Maghull Radio holding event to remember Hillsborough

by Henry James (April 2021)

MAGHULL Radio will be holding a Remembrance Coffee to mark the 32nd anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster.

It will be held at Costa Coffee in Maghull Square from 2.30pm on Thursday, April 15.

This Thursday's event will be the group’s last. Margaret Aspinall, Chair of the Hillsborough Families Support Group (HFSG) has decided to disband the group as it has gone as far as it can.

So the ‘Wear a Red Carnation Hillsborough Awareness Campaign’ which David Hughes started seven years ago with the help of Maghull Radio and Maghull Town Council, supported by Ann-Louise Hartley of Hartley's Nurseries, will end this Thursday afternoon.

David Hughes said: “We had one two years ago which was well attended, but had to be cancelled last year because of the Pandemic. This year we can meet up again at the same place, even if it is only outside and keeping a safe distance.

“Let us make this coming gathering on Thursday at 2.30 pm outside the Costa, the best ever

“Costa Coffee have kindly allowed us to hold the Remembrance again this year and Hartley's Nurseries (who sponsor my radio show) have kindly promised to donate 50 Red Carnations again, as they have done for the past seven years.”

“I want to thank Ann Louise Hartley and family very much.

“A big thank you to you and others on the Champion for also giving us your support and publicity.

“It has been a joy to be involved and the letter I received from Her Majesty the Queen about the Campaign has to be the 'icing on the cake’.”
