A joint effort of Fylde Borough Council, our local Police Officers, Wesham Town Council and Wesham Community Pride Trust was deemed to be a great success on Sunday morning. Over 20 volunteers responded to the challenge, resulting in the removal of enough rubbish to fill an 8 Ton Skip!

The organisers were particularly pleased to see so many young people joining the group who worked extremely hard all morning.

The weather was kind to the valiant team who donned high visibility jackets and gloves to visit almost every road in Wesham including back alleys, removing a variety of rubbish. A good Community Spirit was felt by all at the end of the session, when the evidence could be clearly seen in the 8 ton skip!

PC Gary Cross and PCSO Jacqui Marwick had drawn up 6 maps identifying areas for the groups to deal with, and with the help Fylde Borough Officer, Bryan Ward, cleaning equipment was supplied and distributed.

After this success, for the second year, plans will be put into place for this to become at least an annual event.

Our sincere thanks to all who participated
