The signs are good!

Green Party Councillors Karen Allison and Andrew Cooper spent their Sunday morning cleaning the boundary signs for Newsome and Berry Brow in the area they represent on Kirklees Council.

Councillor Karen Allison said 

"Every couple of years the grime and sap builds up on our local Village signs so we spent a couple of hours going round and giving them a really good clean.  It is an easy way of helping give a good impression of our area. There's nothing worse than entering an area with a mucky sign. It makes the place look uncared for. We could have sent an email to someone in the Council to go and do it but it was easier to fill a bucket with soapy water and just go and do it. Its such an easy thing to do and shows that Councillors can be about more than just sitting around in meetings all day."

Councillor Cooper said,

" The sign cleaning is something we have done for a few years now but volunteering is part of our ethos which is why we do a Christmas Bus Service and organise local community clean ups. I think its important that people see  their elected representatives not just talking the talk but walking the walk"
