TWO residents have teamed up to rejuvenate a park that has been ravaged by vandalism and antisocial behaviour. Andrea Greenhalgh and Jenni Quinn have set up the Friends of Westleigh Park group which is involved in regular clean-ups or the area and has secured funding from Wigan Council to make improvements.
New railings and an entrance arch has been installed as well as new bins and trees. A masterplan to have a village green has also been put together.
Atherleigh councillors John Harding, Mark Aldred and Debra Wailes have provided support to them through their Brighter Borough funding.
The pair are encouraging other volunteers to join them. To get involved contact the Facebook group ‘Friends of Westleigh Park’
