A community skip arrived on Preesall Close for the first of four quarterly appearances.

Councillor Pat Keith said:  “I am delighted that we have been able to provide a free community skip to help people clear out their rubbish.  The facility is particularly useful for residents who don’t have access to a car and can help prevent fly tipping.”

“Over the next 6 months the skip will be situated in Preesall Close one day every quarter and we will be reminding residents of the dates nearer to the time.
