As a NHW we major on Community Cohesion and doing sociable events with neighbours, so to create a strong bond together.

We leave policing to the Police, simply working with the

Police's LOGGING SYSTEM

along with staying in dialogue with the Council, the CVS,

the Safety Services, Calico, etc., who are the responsible Bodies

for getting things done in our area. 

Our NHW aim has been to work with a Scheme that enables us

to safely talk together, with a background ethos that we all want

to move forward to give the area in which we live the freedom of

a Well-Being feeling.

When the News Reporter visited our area in July 2014, this is exactly what she personally experienced.

She spoke of this good feeling on Radio Lancashire.

Long standing Spring dealt with at top of Culshaw Street

now!

Safety on Wycoller Park

Residents have, for some while, been concerned about the unlit path

leading up from the bus stop on Brunshaw Avenue through the park

to houses on Wycoller Avenue and beyond.

Neighbourhood Watch suggested lighting bollards to make it safer,

and has been active in persuading the council to do something.

The photos show the new lamp posts now in place to brighten the path.

Thanks to Councillor Mark Townsend for his help in this matter.

--------------------------------------------

Trees on waste ground that had grown too tall,

making them a danger to nearby houses,

have been taken down by Calico's Tree Surgeon

after members of Neighbourhood Watch alerted Calico

Dangerous Trees

-------------------------------------------------------------

ISSUES

Calico have also agreed a monthly grass maintenance plan to keep the area tidy

Thank You Calico

Ribchester Avenue in Spring 2016

Work is currently in progress and we are hopeful that in due course, there might be sufficient funds to remove the muddy verges near our street sign and the beautiful cherry tree.

Grateful Thanks

to Mark Townsend

and the Council.

Grass on one side has been removed by the

cheerful and hard working council team

and is to be replaced

with a footpath.

The kids on the avenue thought the digger was great!

 

Residents had been struggling for some while with having

to park on grass verges

leaving this muddy mess.

Even sand bags were necessary!

A request by a resident was logged with

the council in Spring 2016

to replace grass with hard standing.

This was followed up with a plea for help to Mark Townsend, Leader of Burnley Council.
