Willaston Borough Councillor Brian Silvester has praised a Community Payback team, supervised by the Probation service, that has cleaned all the rubbish away from the 'hideaway' adjacent to the pedestrian path across the A500, near the Horse Shoe pub.
He said," The Parish Council and local residents have been concerned about this grot spot for some time. I am grateful to the Deputy Chairman of the Parish Council, Cllr. Colin Todd, for organising this clean up. It is satisfying that young offenders can do good work like this to help their local community instead of harming it. I hope that the area is now kept clear of rubbish in the future. Consideration could also be given to fencing it off too prevent future problems."
