On Saturday 3rd May, nine members of Middlewich Clean Team showed by their actions how in less than an hour they can make a difference when it comes to keeping our town clean and tidy.

An overgrown area at the side of former PACE Centre on Wheelock Street had become an eyesore right in the town centre that had been noticed by several members and they were determined to do something about it. So, armed with spades, rakes, loppers and brushes they worked hard and, as you can see from the before and after pictures, transformed the area.

Middlewich Clean Team Chairperson, Janet Chisholm commented, “I just wanted to thank everyone who came along to help with the tidy up yesterday. The result is amazing. Nine of us tackled the untidy and unkempt area, including our Mayor, Bernice, who came in her official capacity. It was a wonderful sight seeing everyone lopping – cutting – sweeping and weeding with a common aim to make a difference in this area. It took us approximately forty minutes.”

Our Mayor, Bernice Walmsley added, “The work done in less than an hour by the Clean Team has made a tremendous difference to this little area in the centre of our town. The hard-working members of the team were rewarded with a slice of Janet’s Lemon Drizzle cake.”
