Cllr Ken Moss said, "We are very sorry to lose Jo but she is taking time off to start a family and we wish her well for the future. I have met with PC Wall and she is clearly very hands-on and wants to really engage with us to sort out problems. Her track record is excellent so we are lucky to have another good officer here in Rishton."

Cllr Clare Cleary was in attendance and said, "This was a very positive event, with lots of practical advice avalable for residents from our local Police and Fire officers. They get a lot of criticism but I am proud to support our local teams, they really try to do the best with what they have."

Cllr Cleary said, "We want residents to show how angry they are at the lack of support from senior police in dealing with the mini motorbike nuisance. There have been a couple of near misses recently and people are frustrated with the lack of response."

Cllr Ken Moss said, "Allan is very well respected in Rishton and I have been approached by some local women who want to help him out. I went to ask him if it was alright to clear his back steps for him and he was delighted by the gesture. The steps are a little steep and I will contact the owners to see if we can get them modified but in the first place we can cut back the overgrowth."
Rishton resident Sarah Wade said, "I can arrange a strimmer which will get through most things then we can do a tip run or maybe we could arrange for the Council to collect. I'm not sure what we can do about the 12" steps the old gentleman struggles with but clearing overgrown stuff is a good start."
Fellow resident Jodi Roper added, "I'm more than happy to help out! That's what online groups should be all about, too much ranting about how bad things are in Rishton and not enough mucking in and being useful."
The group will be clearing the steps at 6.00pm on Tuesday 7th October and anyone who wishes to help is welcome.
