Introducing our Radio Local St Helens Local Legends 

Cllr Bisi Osundeko – St. Helens Councillor for Parr Ward

“I love the strong sense of community spirit that you will experience in St Helens. St. Helens has historically excelled in glassmaking and mining and this really makes our town’s history very inspiring. For someone who dislikes motorways, I find the roads in St Helens very motorist friendly. You’ll remember that St Helens has won an award for the most motorist friendly place to live in the UK. Parking fees are really affordable compared to any other part of the UK.

“When I go for a walk, I really can’t count how many elderly people stop me for a chat about how nice the weather is or a smile. People in St Helens love to compliment each other a lot. People really look out for each other. Look at Momos cafe and how people in St Helens came together to find their new shop. Our town is a very friendly town and I feel that our town has huge potentials. When you look at property prices, St Helens is one of the most affordable places to get on the property ladder. Lastly but certainly not the least, I love our parks and my children love going for walks in the duckeries in Parr, Taylor park and Vera page park. I’m really proud of our amazing St Helens town.”
