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 2018/2019. My move to Garstang 10 years ago has been the best decision I have made, it is an absolutely wonderful place to raise my two young children, who both attend a local school and are involved with many of the great local clubs that we have here in Garstang.
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 Leah Hynes
