Spring Cleansweep coming to Thornton

Published on Thursday 22nd April 2010

Thornton will be the next area of Wyre to benefit from a Cleansweep, an intensive clean-up that restores pride to the neighbourhood and gets communities working together.

Organised by the Wyre Community Safety Partnership, the multi-agency operation will run from 10 to 14 May.

Community activities confirmed so far include litter picks and planting in public areas, graffiti removal, test purchasing, vehicle checks and a stepping-up of enforcement action.

A community reassurance session takes place on Thursday 13 May from 10.30am to 2.30pm with various local service providers, including fire officers, police and a member of Wyre Borough Council's recycling team.

Drop in to the mobile units on the Somerfield car park for advice and information or to give your feedback on how the community can be improved.

During the week PCSOs and volunteers will also be door knocking to consult with local people about their particular neighbourhood issues.

A free bulky waste collection is also being offered to residents in most parts of Norcross and Stanah wards on Tuesday 11 May. Details of this will be dropping through the letterboxes of eligible households shortly.

Prior to the Cleansweep, volunteers will walk down every street in the designated area, making a note of everything that needs to be addressed, however small. The bulk of these will be tackled during the week itself, but anything that can't be resolved quickly will be added to an action plan for the appropriate agencies to deal with as soon as possible.

For further information or to become involved, contact 01253 891000 or check out the Thornton Cleansweep page on Facebook.
