MONDAY, August 23 saw the arrival of a group of travellers to the centre of Gorse Covert, very close to sheltered housing for the elderly and almost on the doorstep of council leader Russ Bowden.

I would be interested to know exactly when Warrington Borough Council intends to establish an appropriate approved campsite.

We cannot complain about unauthorised encampments when we have failed for so long to provide adequate alternative facilities.


EVERY week it seems I read stories in the Warrington Guardian about travellers.

Yet the council continues to sit on its hands.

There is no chance and no traveller camp set up.

So what difference does it make. It is time to act now.
