Join walk and have your say 

15/03/11

Police and partner organisations are urging residents in Kearsley to have their say on crime and local issues.

A community walk will be held on Wednesday, March 16and will begin outside of the Premier Store on Springfield Road at 6pm.

The purpose of the walk is to enable residents to meet the service providers for their area and discuss matters that affect their lives, such as crime and disorder, environmental issues and local amenities.

Representatives from Greater Manchester Police, Bolton Council’s Community Safety team, and Bolton at Home will participate in the walk along with local councillors.

Inspector Ian Parker of the Bolton South Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “The community walk is a fantastic opportunity for residents in Kearsley to have their say and actively influence decisions in their area.

“All you have to do is turn up and take part. However, if you cannot make it, you can have your say by talking to your local officer, visiting your local station, visiting our website or by contacting your NPT by telephone or email.”

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Cleaner, Greener, Safer, Councillor Sufrana Bashir-Ismail, said: “The walk gives residents an ideal opportunity to meet with representatives from a number of agencies and together talk a walk in their local area to identify problems and raise any concerns they may have. I’d encourage everyone to come along."
