Middlewich is being given a thorough spring clean – thanks to work spearheaded by Cheshire East Council and helped by local volunteers.
A ‘deep clean’ has been taking place in the town to help it sparkle and shine in the March sunshine and beyond.
Council staff have been working alongside volunteers from Middlewich Clean Team to remove graffiti, chewing gum ‘grot spots’ and algae from public buildings – with more work to be done over the coming days and weeks.
Councillor David Topping, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member in charge of service commissioning, said: “Our staff and community volunteers have been doing sterling work to make the town look smarter and cleaner – and it is great to see.
“The Bull Ring looks so smart again and will have more work on it to remove the remaining algae.
“The brick bus stop opposite the church has been power-washed brilliantly and graffiti has been professionally removed from a cottage by the wharf and other work has been done to remove graffiti from other bus shelters by the skate park and at Red Cow Court. The bridge has been given a good wash and clean too.
“This is another good example of the Council working in partnership with residents to improve the community and I would like to extend my thanks to all volunteers involved that have made this project possible.”
