SALE councillors have organised a ‘Big Tidy-Up’ event, which will take place on Saturday, March 8.

St Mary’s ward councillors Rob Chilton, Dan Bunting and John Holden have chosen the field between Ashton on Mersey School and Selsey Avenue as the location for their latest tidy up.

Those wishing to take part should meet at the Cecil Avenue entrance, near the junction with Moss Lane, at 10.30am.

Cllr Chilton said: “Whilst it is a shame that a minority of people litter in the first place, it is great that local people who take pride in their community are able to help us clean up the area and make it look tidy again.

“Anyone who would like to help out would be more than welcome.”
