Johnny prompts Thorney clean-up

Clean 2 crop

Thorney has got out its scrubbing brushes and mops this week.

On Saturday a team of people, including three ward councillors – Steve Allen, Richard Brown and Nigel Simons – spent the morning washing down dirty road signs in the village.

The clean-up was prompted by Church Street resident Johnny Richardson, who complained about the dirty signs during the election campaign for a replacement city councillor.

Today (Monday), he used Facebook to complain about the state of a bench on Wisbech Road (covered in green algae) prompting Chris Vaughan from Thorney Youth project to nip out and give it a scrub.
