The Nifty 250: News of the day in so many words

<b>Monday Dec 21:</b> Capital of Culture meant 600 new jobs in Liverpool; Bradley vows to find place for Goodison in World Cup; listing for Toxteth church etcetera

Published on December 21st 2009.

NEW figures from the Government’s Annual Business Inquiry survey have shown that Capital of Culture year saw 600 new jobs in Liverpool. As the rest of the North West saw a 1.2 percent decline in jobs, the number in Liverpool rose slightly from 226,700 in 2007 to 227,300 in 2008. The rate of growth, which is in line with other major UK cities, came as the city saw rises in the number of hospitality and construction jobs.

EVERTON LOVING COUNCIL LEADER WARREN BRADLEY says his club will still be involved in the city’s preparations for the World Cup. After failing to be chosen, Goodison Park criticised the Fifa decision, but Cllr Bradley has insisted the club will have a role to play if England’s bid is successful.

A TOXTETH CHURCH HAS GAINED “LISTED” STATUS in recognition of its architecture and history. Built in 1876-1878, Our Lady of Mount Carmel RC Church, and its neighbouring presbytery in High Park Street, were granted Grade II listing after a written request was made by a resident.

A LIGHT UP A LIFE CEREMONY WAS HELD to remember loved ones by supporters of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. They gathered at St George’s Hall for the appeal, with Gerry Marsden switching on the lights during the service. A charity spokeswoman said, “Christmas is a happy time for most of us, but when you’ve lost someone close to you, Christmas can be a difficult time.”

Here's a piece I spotted on your Manchester stable mates nifty 250"PLANS FOR WHITEHALL OF NORTH in Manchester have been agreed by council bosses. Planning chiefs at the Town Hall approved the scheme, which will bring 5,000 civil servants to a new government office complex near Piccadilly Station. Surrounded by a public park, the 20-acre former Mayfield railway station site will be transformed into a ‘super campus’, with some government departments likely to move from London." Now isn't there a plan for some major office and residential development in Liverpool to accommodate all these?
