Neithrop and Ruscote Labour Councillors gathered at Boxhedge Road West on the 15th July 2017 for a street surgery, litter pickers at the ready! Councillors Surinder Dhesi, Mark Cherry, Hannah Banfield and Steve Kilsby, aided and very ably supported by Helen Mears, valiantly picked up litter, and had some fruitful and enlightening conversations with residents.
Some great work has been carried out in this road by its’ residents recently, with help from the Councillors, and the road looks a lot better than it used to. There are still issues of anti-social behaviour, parking on verges, and of fly tipping which the Councillors are looking into, but things are much improved.
County Councillor for Ruscote, Mark Cherry said, “I am honoured and proud to be part of this Labour team that gets things done. We all work together well in this area.”
District Councilor Surinder Dhesi echoes that; “The residents really appreciate the help and support we can give them, and it is great to see the street looking so good.”
District Councillor Hannah Banfield said, “I always litter pick around my local area, and this is a great way of spreading the word to others about keeping our streets tidy.”
Town Councillor Steve Kilsby says “I have known this area well for more than 25 years, and I have never known it look so good. It is a credit to the residents that it does.”
