MELLING Parish Council are working together with local residents to make our village a safer and cleaner place.

Making Melling safer for everyone

Unfortunately, inconsiderate parking has become an increasingly hazardous practice in our village with cars, vans and sometimes even HGVs parked on footpaths and street corners.  This practice can cause difficulties for blind and partially sighted people, users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters as well as parents with children, pushchairs and buggies.  At worse, it means people may have to step out into a busy road to avoid a vehicle parked without consideration.

Melling Christmas Wish Celebration

Melling Christmas Wish Celebration

On the 5th December the community of Melling came together to celebrate the festive period at the Melling Christmas Wish Celebration. There was an amazing turnout of families young and old who saw the Christmas tree lights switched on, with an appearance from Father Christmas who gave away selection boxes to all children and adults whilst people enjoyed hot chocolate, mince pies and cake with songs sung by the children from Melling Nursery, poems by Melling Primary School, carols by Melling Community Gospel Choir and performances by Wend Searle Dance Academy.

2016 Scarecrow Competition

June saw the return of the amazing scarecrows to Melling.  Once again the creations were outstanding and brought lots of pleasure to residents and passers-by.

Congratulations to the winners, and a big well done to everyone who created the fantastic scarecrows, and to St Thomas Church members for organising this wonderful festival which has become a highlight in Melling’s calendar.

Mileposts

As part of the bicentenary celebrations of the Leeds Liverpool canal, this year the Canal and River Trust have launched the Every Mile Counts project.  The project hopes to encourage local groups and individuals to adopt their local stretch of canal and its milepost leaving a lasting legacy long after the end of the bicentenary celebrations.
