The West End's Big Tidy Up

CREWE residents are being urged to take part in the West End's Big Tidy Up.

The project is supported by Labour's Parliamentary candidate for Crewe and Nantwich David Williams and Crewe West Councillor Roy Cartlidge.

The initiative forms a part of the Community Action Week programme.

Agencies across the West End of Crewe are banding together to clean up grot spots and consult with residents on the improvements they would like to see.

Cllr Cartlidge said: “The main problems at the moment are litter and fly-tipping.

"As soon as we have cleared an area of rubbish, it seems to be as bad as ever again in a matter of days.

"It is not acceptable that a small number of people use our open spaces and public areas as dumping grounds.”

David Williams added: “We all have a personal responsibility to keep our shared spaces clean and tidy.

"As well as involving residents in the Big Tidy Up, we need to see the council making a real difference.

"That is why I’m pleased to see them listening to local residents and letting them have a say in what happens in their area.”

There will be open air consultations at the open space behind Minshull New Road and Hulme Street on Tuesday October 27 from 10am until 12noon and from 4pm until 6pm.

On Friday October 30 from 11am until 2pm the consultation will be in Frank Webb Avenue play area and Frank Bott Avenue field as part of the free half-term Family Fun Day.

Mr Williams added: “These open-air consultations will allow residents to have their say on the type of improvements they would like to see such as the creation of a village green, tree planting, living sculpture trails, improvements along Leighton Brook and the like.”
