A neighbourhood in Walton has been given a Spring clean this week.
As part of regular clean-up days in different parts of the Warbreck ward, the Rice Lane and Walton Vale area was targeted
Residents made good use of the five community skips that were quickly filled, with over ten bags of litter collected.
All the planters at Rice Lane train station were replanted with spring flowers to brighten up the day for commuters.
Cable boxes were painted to cover any graffiti: the Poover removed the dog mess from the roads and pavements; highways officers checked that all local businesses have trade waste agreements and are disposing of their waste properly and also ensured that pavements were kept clear from clutter and safe for residents to use.
Local councillor Ann O’Byrne said: “We are holding regular clean-up days throughout the ward and It was great to talk to so many residents and help resolve a number of issues and for some to volunteer to help out at future events. I would like to thank our partners for their support and special thanks to City Council environment enforcement officers, highways team, Your Place team and Amey.”
Further clean-up days are planned for the Cavendish Drive area, Walton Hall Park estate and Orrell Park over the next month.
