“Catwalk” between Town Hall and Seacombe Ferry – great success

Thursday 8th March 201

Our Community Action Team (CAT for short) were out in Seacombe today.

John, at the mobile police station, with just some of the Team who were 'sweeping' the area.

Cllr John Salter is seen here on the “Cat-walk” in the area between Seacombe Ferry and the Town Hall.  “Cat-walks”  involve your Councillors; Streetscene Officers; the Police; Wirral Partnership Homes; the Fire Service; and other agencies.  Student volunteers, from the Vocational College in wheatland Lane, also came along to help clear rubbish from our open spaces.

Many concerns were identified from local people ranging from rubbish in alley ways to matters of rowdy behaviour.   John said:

 “This has been a great success.  Placing the mobile police station was an excellent idea and it has been there for quite a while now.  Local kids have come to know our local bobbies personally and have struck up good relationships as they learned first hand about how to help the police and how the police can help us.  Having the ‘Respect’ bus along with the Anti Social Behaviour Team on board was a great success as well. 

The 'Respect Bus' is parked at the "Leasowe Castle" pub - one of several that have closed in recent years.

We did a ‘sweep’ of the area from Wallasey Town Hall to Seacombe Ferry.  Then we went on to Albermarle Road, and the area around, where we found several cases of fly tipping to the rear of properties.  (The culprits had left enough identity for our team to be able to locate them!   So this will be passed on to our enforcement team.)

The best thing about this exercise was the way the public, young and old, welcomed the presence of the ‘Respect bus’ and the Team.

It was a very worthwile exercise.”
