A petition calling for the urgent repair of the town’s flagstones is now available to sign on line.
Since its launch at the end of January, the “Fix our Flags” campaign, which is backed by The Clitheroe Advertiser and Times, has received unprecedented levels of support from the local community.
The Clitheroe Chamber of Trade, Clitheroe Civic Society and Clitheroe Town Action Group (C-TAG) petition has already been signed by more than 1,200 people in its paper form.
But, as Tony Gould, president of Clitheroe Chamber of Trade, explained, people now have the option of supporting the campaign on line.
“People ‘liking’ our Facebook page, signing the online petition or the paper petition all count. We are aiming to get 5,000 people to sign the petition,” said Tony.
Campaigners want Lancashire County Council to urgently undertake a survey of town centre flagstones and to deliver a programme of remedial works utilising quality paving slabs, to be started in the financial year 2015 to 2016.
