Rubbish Friends Clean Up Bath Street Southport

28th October 2015

Bath Street is sparkling following the recent actions of the Rubbish Friends litter pickers, Southport Hoteliers Association and the Lord Street in Bloom volunteers.

The clean up was the idea of Southport Hoteliers chairperson Tracy Holgate who said: “On behalf of the Hoteliers Association, I would like to say a big thank you to all volunteers who did a great job sprucing up Bath Street, Bold Street, Victoria Street and the Promenade in preparation for the Spookport festival.”

Rubbish Friends co-founder Councillor Sue McGuire explained “We collected over 30 bags of rubbish including a broken pushchair which makes a huge difference to an area and shows what can be achieved when people work together”.

Pauline Morris, from the Lord Street volunteers, added “A big thank you to the New Victoria gym for providing us with free hot drinks which were very welcome after 2 hours work litter picking and weeding.”

The volunteers also spent time tidying up the area in front of the former nightclub site on the corner of the Promenade and Neville Street.

Councillor Sue McGuire said: “I have asked the Environmental Health team to inspect this building as the amount of bird mess and general detritus here is absolutely appalling.  I hope that the Council can take steps to clear the filth from the front of this iconic building. Its vital that we do everything we can to maintain the fabulous facades that make Southport the North West’s jewel in the crown.”
