Hands-on appeal for Fleetwood clean up A new start for the new year. That's one resolution Fleetwood folk are being encouraged to make by the organisers of a Cleansweep in Pharos ward. A multi-agency approach will see an intensive clean-up of the area between 24 and 28 January. As well as a major purge on physical blights such as fly-tipping, graffiti and dog fouling, officers will be dealing with other issues that have a negative effect on neighbourhoods, such as anti-social behaviour and vehicle crime.

But new suggestions are always welcome. Councillor Roger Berry, Chairman of the Wyre Community Safety Partnership, said: "We have lots of initiatives planned, everything from removing unwanted bulky items from people's houses to test purchases in off licences and pubs.

Exact details of the activities will be worked out in the coming weeks, but in the mean time the Wyre "We are making a positive start in Pharos ward as we Community Safety Partnership is appealing for comlook forward to the celebrations for Fleetwood's 175th munity groups, schools, streets and individuals to think anniversary year. about how they could get involved.

Help needed to catch Fleetwood fly-tippers Fleetwood folk are being asked to come forward with information following a spate of fly-tipping in the town. Three large tips have been discovered within the last week and waste bosses at Wyre Borough Council are now appealing for help with finding out who was responsible. The biggest haul was found on 14 December. Four tonnes of builders waste was dumped on Jameson Road, mostly old fashioned roof slates and felt. A large tip was also found at the rear of Hazeldene Avenue on 10 December and another at the rear of Lindel Road on 13 December. These were a combination of garden waste and kitchen and bathroom fittings. All three were removed but the council the same day as they were reported.

several hundred pounds in removal equipment and landfill costs, plus a great deal of officer time. All of this has to be paid for by public money, so it affects everyone. "The only way we can find and take action against these people is to gather evidence and that's where the public comes in. We're asking anyone who might know anything about these incidents to talk to us in confidence. "People may have seen the fly-tipping taking place. If they've had a replacement roof or bathroom fitted in the past few days or had their garden cleared, they may have suspicions about how the builder disposed of the waste. "Any information, however small, may be enough to allow us to take action."

Councillor Paul Moon, Cabinet member with responsibility for fly-tipping at Wyre Borough Council, said: "The irresponsible few who dump their waste like this are not just spoiling our neighbourhoods, they are also putting unnecessary pressure on our finances.

Residents are reminded of the council's reward scheme that pays out ÂŁ100 to anyone providing information leading to the prosecution of anyone who illegally dumps rubbish on public land.

"Every time there is a fly tipping incident, it costs

Permission granted for new Rossall Point tower Plans for a new observatory tower on the Rossall coastline have been given the go ahead. Wyre Borough Council's Planning Committee unanimously granted permission for the iconic structure, part of the ÂŁ1.6m Sea Change programme to improve the waterfront, which is set to become something of a destination centre. Now more detailed work on the design and materials will begin ready for construction to start in the spring. Features of the tower, replacing an existing out dated facility used by the National Coast Watch Initiative (NCI) at Rossall Point, include several viewing platforms open to the public, an education centre on the ground floor where views from the top will be projected on to screens and a new home for the NCI volunteers.

"Engagement with the people of Fleetwood will also continue as we develop the artwork. We're looking to make it part of the structure, not just stuck to the building; something thought provoking that tells a story. The public can really contribute to this with their ideas."

Protecting the natural environment will be a primary concern throughout the building phase. As a result Councillor Barry Birch, the council's cabinet member with responsibility for the Sea Change much of the construction will take place off site. project, added: "Things can really start to move on Disruption to the surrounding pathways will also be apace now that planning permission has been secured. kept to an absolute minimum. Mushtaq Saleri of architects Studio Three who are leading the project on behalf of Wyre Borough Council, said: "We are delighted that things are now moving forward.

"Together with the proposed improvements to Marine Gardens, we are confident the observatory tower will create a new point of interest and attract some new visitors to a part of our coastline that often gets overlooked."

"In the coming weeks and months we'll be putting the detail together, working with stakeholders such as Coast Watch, local bird watchers and Wyre's countryside rangers.

It is hoped the facility will be operational by autumn 2011.

Mount Racing Club On a cold Thursday afternoon The Mount Racing Club travelled down to Dunstall Park Racecourse at Wolverhampton for the last race on the card a 1m4f handicap. Hopes were high that their versatile 3yo star Valantino Oyster could follow on from his impressive debut the week before where he finished 3rd and maybe this time fare even better. Sent off favourite at odds of 6/4 he travelled nicely throughout and as they turned for home it became clear that he was the only horse that was to throw down a challenge to the long time leader Port Hill. Under a determined drive from jockey Paddy Donaghy he began to claw back the leader and as the post loomed he drew along side until neck and neck they flashed past the judge together. It was a nail biting few minutes for all the Mount Racing Club members who were trackside but unfortunately the outcome of the photo finish went against us and Valantino was beaten by the shortest of short heads. This was another solid run from Valantino Oyster and one that suggests next time out it could be his turn for winning. To date Valantino Oyster has won twice on the Turf, finished 2nd and 3rd on the All Weather and 3rd over Hurdles behind a very decent Tim Vaughn horse called Architrave. His next assignment will probably be back at Wolverhampton in the New Year where we hope to be gracing the Winners enclosure once again. Then he will

be given a short break to freshen him up before resuming his Hurdling career in the Spring. The idea to purchase this versatile horse from the powerful Howard Johnson’s yard in summer certainly has proved to be a good one and whatever code of Racing he takes in we can certainly see him winning a lot more races for us. There are still a few shares left in him and anyone interested in getting involved or visiting the stables in Middleham can contact Geoff 07852 153969 or Andy 07940 202312 for further info.

Pupil Power Some tough decisions had to be made by youngsters from Fleetwood High School when they were put "in charge" of council coffers for an afternoon. The Year 7 students were taking part in a Pupil Power exercise, run by Wyre Borough Council, that challenged them to get the most out of a tight budget and decide which public services they would have to lose to balance the books. The debate was guided by Wyre councillors and among those considered less of a priority by pupils were parks, Tourist Information Centres and public toilets. Pupil Power, which is open to all high schools, is designed to help young people appreciate the decisions that have to be made in local government. Pictured above - Councillor David Walmsley helps pupils decide how to balance the books.
