West Lancashire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) invites residents to join West Lancashire Borough Council, Police, Fire Service Officers and other agencies for a Community Action and Engagement Day in their neighbourhood.
Community action days are planned for Tanhouse, Old Skelmersdale, Digmoor, Little Digmoor, Moorside and Scott Estate, Ormskirk. Each one will aim to improve working relationships, increase community confidence and reduce the fear of crime.
Previous action days in West Lancashire have been a great success, proving that community spirit is alive and well in the borough.
Councillor Kevin Wright, portfolio holder for Community Safety, said: “I hope residents will take part in the community action days, use the skips and talk to staff from the Council, Police and other agencies about any concerns they have about crime, community safety and other issues.”
Events take place in each of the locations and dates indicated below.The community skips funded by the CSP will be on site from 9.30 am and removed the same day, once full.
A range of CSP agencies will offer support and advice on the following themes:
David Tilleray, Chairman of the West Lancashire Community Safety Partnership, said: “Community action days are great events for local communities and I’d like to pay tribute to all the organisations, ward councillors and individual residents who help make them successful.”
Police Chief Inspector Jill Halliwell said: “We hope to see as many people as possible at the community action days and look forward to speaking to them.”
Fire Service West Lancashire District Delivery Manager Matthew Hamer said: “Fire safety is an important issue and we hope to speak to lots of residents to get this message across.”
