Town Centre Gets Spring Clean!

Liskeard Town Centre has received a spring clean this week thanks to funding support provided by Councillor Nick Craker’s Community Chest Grant.

The Town Council working with local residents and Liskeard in Bloom identified a number of areas in the town that required attention including signs, railings, bus shelters, and streetlamps.  The project also targeted graffiti, fly-posting , stickers, dirty pavements and steps.  Local contractors, Brothers Cleaning Group Ltd have been busy pressure washing and cleaning throughout the town.  Lewis Chant-Seeley and his team have been on-site from 4am to help keep disruption to local residents and businesses to a minimum.

The clean-up builds on recent local community action to clean-up Culverland Park and work undertaken by volunteers from Liskeard in Bloom to tidy up the old ATS building.  Councillor Craker said “Cleaning up Liskeard is just one part of the wider work we have been undertaking to make our town look clean, tidy and welcoming. Supporting the shops and businesses in Liskeard to welcome trade back into our town has been a priority. A clean town is a welcoming town and I hope to see businesses thriving in Liskeard.”

Liskeard is looking to welcoming visitors and local residents back after a difficult time on the high street.  This year also marks the town’s entry into the South West in Bloom Pennant Cup Competition.  John Hesketh from Liskeard in Bloom added “Liskeard in Bloom is built on community engagement, and it’s through working alongside our partners in the Town Council and business community that we won a Gold Award for the Pennant Cup in 2019. After taking a break during the Covid lockdown, we’re back in 2022,  determined to get the cup! Our Jubilee-themed planting (and a couple of secret showstoppers in the town) builds on the groundwork of the Spring Clean, and we’re delighted to see the whole town pulling together again.”

For further information please contact Jacqui Orange, Facilities Manager, Liskeard Town Council, 3-5 West Street, Liskeard, PL14 4JP.  Tel. 01579 345407 between 9am – 1pm or  Email facilties@liskeard.gov.uk.
