Volunteers get tough on Park Lane rubbish
by Tom Martin

RESIDENTS turned out in force for a community clear up day around the streets of Netherton.

The initiative, organised by Netherton Park Neighbourhood Centre, saw a large group take part in litter picking around the Park Lane estate area.

The event was supported by One Vision Housing, Your Housing, Plus Dane and Netherton and Orrell Area Committee with each donating a skip.

Local residents, children and police officers were then tasked with picking up all sorts of rubbish which has been dumped in the area.

Local Councillor Susan Bradshaw said: “It was a brilliant day and the weather certainly helped. We spent around two hours picking up litter which ranged from crisp packets, tins and dog muck. We also got really positive feedback from residents during the litter picking day and they said how much better the area is looking.

”It was a complete success and we are now hoping to do more in the future“.
