A COMMUNITY clean-up event is encouraging Latchford West residents to take pride in the area they live.

On Saturday, a Clean 19 event will be taking place, with volunteers from across the six central wards banding together to make a big difference.

A large container will be available at St Werburgh’s Community Hub on Boswell Avenue from 10am until 2pm on the day for people to dispose of any rubbish they collect.

Refreshments will be available at the hub from 11.30am and the litter pick will start at 12pm.

Cllr Maureen McLaughlin said: "Residents in other central six areas have engaged really well with this initiative, and I’m sure the residents in the areas of Loushers Lane, Wilderspool Causeway Gainsborough Road and Chester Road will get on board as a community."

Cllr Jean Flaherty, chair of the Central Six Community Forum, said: "We’ve had brilliant engagement from residents so far about the central six area regeneration masterplan.

"What’s more, to see volunteers in action, with people banding together to make a huge difference to the area, is validation that people in Warrington’s central wards really care about their communities."

As a result of the event, this Saturday's Latchford West councillor surgery will take place at St Werburgh’s Community Hub on Boswell Avenue, and not in the regular venue at St Hilda’s Mission.

Councillor Les Morgan and Councillor Maureen McLaughlin will be helping out on the day, but will be available to take any queries or concerns from 10.15am to 11am.
