Residents stage big anti-litter blitz


STREETS around the Old School in Fairfield Street, Warrington, were cleared of litter and fly-tipped items when another clean-up day was delivered by the Fairfield and Howley Clean 17 programme.
A dedicated team of litter-pickers, joined by community volunteers, carried out the work.
A large container and a flatbed truck were filled to capacity with fly-tipped items from surrounding streets.
The team also spent the day touring the area picking up unwanted items, including beds, mattresses, sofas and fridges.
There were a couple of good finds – including a rocking horse for the children to use in St Elphin’s Park.
The initiative was funded by the Fairfield and Howley Community Action Forum, the Friends of St Elphin’s Park and grants from Golden Gates Housing Trust and Warrington Borough Council.
In addition to the clean-up, local PCSOs were on hand, security marking bicycles and picking up local intelligence.
Healthy eating and exercise information was also available and there was a local councillor street surgery.
The next Clean 17 Day will be in the St Katherine’s Way and St Elphin’s Close area on Saturday November 4.
Cllr Jean Flaherty said: “If you love where you live, volunteer on the day and help us keep it lovable!”
