DRUG dealing and recycling have remained top issues in Weston after the town centre set its main priorities at its PACT (Police And Communities Together) meeting last night (Weds).

Around 20 residents attended the meeting at the Badger Centre in Wadham Street, while members of the town centre management team and Avon and Somerset Police were also present.

Residents aired their concerns about the consistency of North Somerset Council’s new recycling system and how to tackle recycling ‘hotspots’ where residents have left rubbish to pile up.

Drug dealing around the town centre was also raised as a consistent problem, with residents being urged to contact the police or Crimestoppers if they spotted anything suspicious.

A third priority set was the issue of alcohol-related anti-social behaviour, particularly on The Boulevard.

Concerned residents can phone Weston police station on 0845 4567000, or can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
