Do you want to take action on flytipping and see Old Trafford become a greener, cleaner and more pleasant place to live?

Then take the first step towards getting more involved in your community by attending the local environment and safety meetings.

Held once every three months in the Old Trafford Community Centre, the group is run by Trafford Council and brings together local residents with police, council, and the fire service to take action on all environmental problems in the area.

The next environment and safety subgroup being held on Thursday, February 7, from 6pm to 7.30pm, at the Old Trafford community centre, Shrewsbury Street. For more information, call Jan Teece on 0161 912 4212, or email janet.teece@trafford.gov.uk

Those who want to get even more involved can become community champions, and report environmental crime, arrange community clean-ups, or simply take more care of their street.

For more information about becoming a community champion, contact the council's community safety patrol team on street.champions@trafford.gov.uk or call 0161912 2000/ 0161 912 5569.

We at the Old Trafford News are keen to hear what you think of fly-tipping in OT. Are you sick of it? What do you think the council should do? Views and comments please.....
