Keep Old Lane looking great!

In response to Albert Williams letter (“Clean up these roads”, Yoursay, February 12) Old Lane, Halifax is notorious for fly tipping. We also have to endure derelict buildings, a pile of rubble following the demolition of Old Lane Public House; and a burnt out car this week!

Over the past two weeks we have had the road sweeper and manual labourers cleaning our roads, footpaths and alleys up to Boothtown, it looks great and it especially pleases me to know that our council tax is being put to this use.

I do feel though that it’s the general public who should consciously try to not litter our roads and pathways since Old Lane won’t stay like this for long.
