News In Brief - Timely tales from around Wyre

Published on Monday 15th November 2010

Public positive over Sea Change plans

Feedback from the latest Sea Change plans has been overwhelmingly positive.

A steady stream of 20 to 30 people a day have been through the doors of Marine Hall since the improvements for neighbouring Marine Gardens and artists impressions of the proposed Rossall Point observatory went on public display.

Two sessions manned by the project team themselves drew crowds of around 350.

Comments so far have included:

- What lovely plans, at last Fleetwood is having a face lift. We have a beautiful town let's keep it up

- I think the plans are fantastic and can't wait for them to come to fruition. The Observation Tower at the top will provide many peaceful and happy hours looking out to sea

- The proposed design is a vast improvement on the current layout and will be very much utilised by the locals. I am pleased that it has included restful areas to sit and enjoy the environment

Displays will remain at the Marine Hall and Fleetwood Library until mid December. Feedback can be given via email at seachange@wyrebc.gov.uk or by calling 01253 887260.

2. More good news for blooming Garstang

Garstang has been given another elite opportunity to showcase its greenery on a national scale.

Following on from success at Britain in Bloom this summer (Best Small Town), the steering committee who do such a wonderful job each year have been selected to compete in the Champion of Champions category in 2011.

This is a special award for those towns and villages who meet consistently excellent standards and sustain their gold status. Entry is by invitation only from national Britain in Bloom judges.

Garstang's In Bloom group have already accepted the challenge and will now be planning something extra special for 2011's entry.

3. Bogus Council Tax refunds warning

Rogue callers are again operating in Wyre claiming to provided refunds on Council Tax bills in return for bank details.

Please note that Wyre Borough Council is not currently making calls of this nature. Officers will only ask for bank details when dealing with an enquiry from a resident themselves.

The best advice is not to give out personal information to any caller unless you are sure who you are speaking to. A simple check can be made by ending the call and redialling the council's main switchboard number - 01253 891000.
