We spent a really productive morning in Urmston Town Centre petitioning for the retention of the senior parks staff. Got to speak to loads of residents from the Lostock area/Gorse Hill area, all of whom were supportive of the petition.
We, the undersigned local residents, wish to place on record our appreciation of the tremendous work of Trafford Council’s gardening staff in improving and maintaining our parks and green spaces. We believe that the Council’s proposal to replace permanent on-site staff with a mobile team fails to recognise the dedication of their staff and will lead to a deterioration of standards and more vandalism in the parks. We therefore call on the Council to withdraw these proposals and to maintain the present staffing arrangements in the parks.
