Since the last elections, Ian, Lesley and I have been calling door to door to listen to the concerns of people who live here in Wallasey Village. Thank you to everyone who has, so far, told us their views.
The issue raised most often by residents in this part of Wallasey is the problem of litter and dumping of rubbish.
People told us about household items dumped in alleyways and entries; overflowing litter bins and, despite the best efforts of our local street cleaner, litter that is dropped on pavements and grass verges and especially near schools.
That’s why Paul Hayes has organised a ‘Community Clean Up’. As well as providing two skips to enable residents to deposit their unwanted items for disposal or recycling, we will also be carrying out a litter pick in our community.
The skips will be provided for use on Saturday 9 March. One will be located in Radstock Road and another in Folly Lane. We’ll also be meeting at 9.30am Wallasey Village Library to carry out a litter pick in many of the residential roads, green spaces and near the shops. Everyone is welcome to come along – we’ll provide the litter pickers and waste bags. We’ve arranged for Biffa to collect them at the end of the day.
Finally, we are also working to have old and damaged litter bins replaced, and additional bins in some locations. If you want to nominate a road that needs a litter bin, please let Paul know and we’ll ask the Town Hall to see if one can be provided.
