Bus Stop consultation

In just under 4 weeks as being newly elected I have now had my first consultation agreed to go ahead for a new bus stop on Rectory Lane opposite St Wilfrids school

Some residents came to me about the issue saying that there is a bus stop on the school side of the road but none going down Rectory Lane and people have to walk to the Owls, which is crazy.

As soon as I know the outcome I will let you all know and if you have any feelings on the matter please let me know.

I have my surgery at Standish Library every Saturday between 10am and 11am.

A number of residents came today with issues ranging from planning to rights of way and public footpaths. I will be looking into these.

This is a picture of me doing my victory speech on the night of the Election. I think this was about 1.30am on the Friday morning.

Just over a year ago Cllr George Fairhurst (Standish) and Cllr Debbie Fairhurst (Shevington) secured £75000 for Ashfield Park at Standish for new play equpiment. This is now going in and the work will soon be in for all to enjoy.

What's interesting is the Labour Cllr Emma McGurrin is putting a letter out saying that it was her and Cllr George Fairhurst that got this money. What another Labour lie!

It is interesting that after all that has gone on with Ashfield that Labour now want to associate themselves with us. Wonder why that is? Wouldn't have anything to do with a local election last week.:-)

The Council have now issued me a email address. This is Gareth.Fairhurst@wigan.gov.uk If you have a problem please do not hesitate to email me.

The phone number they have given to me is 01942 487671. Not quite sure how this works as I live in Standish which is 01257 but I guess they will let me know soon. The number is not live yet as they have not put the line in but as soon as it goes live I will let you all know.

On Thursday it was the Local Elections. I stood in the Standish with Langtree Ward and was successful in this. The Conservatives got 589, Labour got 913 and I got 2069. Thank you for all that supported me in Standish and I look forward to working for you over the next 4 years. Wigan Council website showing result.
