Thorburn/Winster House – Pemberton
Lisa was delighted to pay a visit to residents of Thorburn House and Winster House in Pemberton yesterday.
The visit was arranged by Councillors Jeannette Prescott and Paul Prescott who have worked closely with residents to improve the local area over several years.
The Councillors have been involved in activities including installing hanging baskets, getting action to clean up local green spaces, cracking down on street drinking and organising socials for the residents.
The residents asked Lisa and the Councillors several questions about national and local events.
They raised a number of topics for discussion including the Coalition’s ‘bedroom tax’ which has caused concern for many people across Wigan, and the cuts to Police services.
Lisa said “I was delighted to be able to go along and meet local Pemberton residents. It gave me a chance to hear their concerns, and see the great work they’ve been doing with their local Councillors, Jeannette and Paul, to improve their local environment.”
“They’ve promised to invite me back and I will definitely be taking them up on the offer.”
