Portishead residents are being asked to nominate areas of the town which need tidying up.

Gareth Annets was employed by Portishead Town Council in 2017 to carry out tasks including litter-picking, and clearing weeds and gutters.

But councillors agree there may be other areas which need attention.

Clerk Jo Duffy said: “The town orderly employed by Portishead Town Council has already benefited the town enormously by clearing overgrowth and generally cleaning up areas of the town, but the council now wants to hear of any areas residents feel could benefit from his services.

“This is not for grass cutting but we would particularly like to hear about public footpaths which need clearing and overhanging branches which may be causing an obstruction.”
