Help from the National Probation Service

Wesham Community Pride Trust are delighted with the efforts of the National Probation Service (Blackpool section)
for their work in repainting the Pergola and pruning of the shrubs.

New hooks have been fitted in readiness for the 6 hanging baskets scheduled to be installed in the next day or so.

This is another good example of the work of the Probation Service for which we are most grateful.
