Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson has spent today with Amey who provide a great number of public services across his constituency. Mr Jackson was also joined by Peterborough City Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for these services.
Mr Jackson started his day at 7.30am by visiting Amey’s offices. From there they went to Cathedral Square to do some chewing gum removal, litter picking and bin emptying. They also visited St Peter’s Arcade, off Bridge Street to see the refurbishment work which had been undertaken by Amey.
They went on to Millfield to deal with and remove some fly-tipping before going on to help with a bin round, assisting with loading the bins on to the truck, in Gunthorpe.
Following a busy morning they went on to Fulbridge Academy to join around 400 pupils for their lunch.
After lunch they went on to visit Central Park to hear about Amey’s tree survey and tree service and to see the newly refurbished paddling pool.
Stewart Jackson MP said:
“Amey carry out more services than you’d expect across our city from emptying our bins to feeding our children in school. It was great fun, very illuminating and informative and balances the occasional complaints I get from constituents about the level of service. They are trying to do a tough job and I would like to thank them for their efforts and hope to repeat the visit.”
