Residents may have noticed Parish Council Lengthsman, Malc Hayes, in proud possession of his shiny new litter cart.

Lancashire County Council awarded Chorley Council funding for four segregated hand carts to help raise waste and recycling performance and the Parish Council was successful with a bid for a cart.

The Parish Council employees have been recycling waste as a matter of course for several years now so no changes to collection methods were needed and the new cart came at a time when the old one was badly in need of replacement.

The Parish Council would like to thank both Lancashire County Council and Chorley Council for providing the new cart and we hope Malc gets hours of enjoyment from his new toy!
