I WAS born in Rock Ferry and now live in the USA.

I go home every year.

My sisters live in Port Sunlight, right next to New Ferry. I am so ashamed of that area.

It looks worse than after the Second World War, and it is dirty.

What is wrong?

Don't the local people have any pride in where they live?

The local council is not doing its job.

My two sisters went home after living in the USA most of their lives. Both regret it.

I used to be proud of where I came from. Now I would not invite any of my friends to visit.

I will be home in May.

Hopefully it will be cleaner than it was last year.
