WESTON S south ward could soon be transformed into a cleaner place to live.

WESTON'S south ward could soon be transformed into a cleaner place to live.

Two community wardens and two street cleaners have begun patrolling the streets on the Bournville, Coronation, Potteries and Oldmixon estates to make sure they stay tidy.

The team of four will carry out litter picking, remove graffiti and sweep the streets as well as report any specific problems such as abandoned cars, dog fouling or vandalism to the relevant authority.

The two wardens are Shane Edwards, aged 44, and 33-year-old Darrell Evans and the street cleaners are Andrew Roberts, aged 43, and 26-year-old James Clayton.

The scheme has been funded and put in place by the South Ward Neighbourhood Management Partnership and North Somerset Housing.
