Life in Garstang is changing with the development of many new houses and the loss of our community centre and green spaces. However this brings both challenges and opportunities. Challenges of infrastructure to support these developments including roads, school places, medical facilities and parking to name but a few. However we have a great market town and it is a wonderful place to live and we need to grow our community facilities, support our wonderful independent shops and welcome our new residents and encourage them to join in with our community.
We need to work together with our Wyre Councillors and our County Councillor to ensure that Garstang flourishes and gets all the resources it deserves and I can assure you that the Town Council will strive to do its best for the town and its residents
It is a great honour to be representing Garstang as Mayor for the year 2017/18. Our move to Garstang some 36 years ago was the best decision we ever made. It has been a great place to bring up our family so let us all work together to keep it that way for our children, grandchildren and the future generations to come.
If you have any issues or concerns about the town please do not hesitate to contact me or another member of the Council or, better still, come along to one of our council meetings, we would be delighted to see you.
Cllr Peter Ryder
