Should have switch to 8.33khz some time ago. Doesn't effect anybody just listening any way.

None of the frequencies have changed. All that has changed is the way they are identified.

The only people it affects are registered licence holders who transmit on the frequencies that are affected

As a licenced radio holder you need to read all details.

From 3 January 2019, all ground services must use an 8.33 kHz assignment, unless they are specifically exempted.

It is illegal to communicate on an 8.33 kHz assignment if you are not using an 8.33 kHz capable radio.

From the 3 January 2019, all frequency assignments (limited exemptions listed in AIP ENR 1.8) in the UK will be operating on 8.33 kHz voice channel spacing. This includes assignments such as Safetycom and common sporting assignments.
All aircraft must be equipped to meet the legal operational requirements of the flight they are performing, this includes suitable radio equipment.

The old 25khz spaced freqs are part of the new 8.33khz spaced allocations so the Liverpool freqs have not changed, only the way they are described.

"everybody in GA bought new gear"?
Everybody?
GA?
The casual listener does at their local airport does not need to buy any new equipment.
