Love Ormskirk are very passionate about increasing the footfall into the town centre and welcoming new and exciting businesses. Ormskirk has an abundance of history and character, so it is a shame when everyone is faced with tired empty units that were once a thriving business. Right from the word go, one of Love Ormskirk’s main issues was the demise of the high street and specifically dealing with empty units which is synonymous throughout the country, but Love Ormskirk don’t want to sit back and watch this happen!
Love Ormskirk have launched their spring clean initiative this week from 8th- 14th April, where everyone will not only tidy up the high street, but also the close surrounding areas too.
Home Instead are delighted to support this activity, joining volunteers from within the local community, schools, university students, youth clubs, scouts, sports groups and local residents. Robert Godson from Home Instead comments, "Anyone can come along and help. There is a warm meeting place kindly offered by Dave Mutch of the Servolution team where you can help yourself to refreshments and this is a great opportunity to do good for the town, meet new people and network in the town. At Home Instead we try and make a really positive difference to the lives of our local clients every day, so we were delighted when the team behind Love Ormskirk contacted us about the spring clean up idea, and as you drive and walk around the town, you can already see the positive visual impact, from everyone's very kind efforts."
There is such a great sense of achievement for all involved to be part of making a difference to our town's appearance and atmosphere. Local media will also be following progress, and the excellent work undertaken all week will be promoted through the Love Ormskirk website, blog, social media, poster and flyers.
With the help of volunteers from the community and local organisations, Love Ormskirk hope to make a difference as part of an ongoing project to bring new businesses and new visitors by reflecting everyone's pride through the look and feel of our special town.
