Councillor Simon Yates, Leader of Crewe Town Council, said: “The deep clean of Crewe town centre is really positive news and this approach by Cheshire East Council should be both welcomed and applauded.

“The Town Council calls on the people of Crewe to take full advantage of a cleaner Crewe, to support the businesses and activities which take place in the town centre and to help in maintaining this improvement. A cleaner Crewe will be so much more attractive and it would be great to make sure that this remains the case.”

Councillor Don Stockton, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We recognise that a clean town centre is important to residents and businesses, as well as visitors.

“The work will make a visible difference to the town centre and we hope it will encourage more people to go and spend time there.

“We’re appealing to residents to also play their part in keeping the town centre clean and encourage them to ensure any litter is placed in the bins provided.”
