Taking a stand campaign

West Lancs Labour Councillors have kicked off their "Taking a stand" campaign to raise awareness of the new powers available through the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003.

There is more information at the West Lancs Labour website (http://www.westlancslabour.org.uk).

Wall near community centre – update

After contacting both the County and District council (and being directed to the Lancashire Road Partnership!) I’ve finally got an assurance from the District council that the wall is to be rebuilt and strengthened.
It was the opening of the Digmoor Community Centre today, which was a brilliant event and Margaret, Ann and everyone involved have worked hard to get the community centre open and looking so good. We just need to make sure that the rest of the parade can be improved to match it! Hopefully fixing the wall will be a small step towards that.
