St Helens Council Intends to reduce the number of rangers from 8 to 4 for entire borough!

This petition had 98 supporters


We ask the the people of St Helens to sign this petition to urge St Helens Council to reconsider its decision to reduce the already stretched workforce from 8 rangers in service to ONLY 4 !

As we believe that such proposals will seriously affect the quality of our much loved parks, open spaces and seriously affect the councils ability to provide safe family events throughout in the borough.
