Egremont town centre sparkles after an intensive clean by Cumberland Council.

Finalised in October, the cleaning effort targeted stubborn dirt covering pavements and pedestrianised zones.

Aside from elevating the overall cleanliness, the project also enhanced the area's appeal to locals and tourists.

To clean such a vast area, the assigned crews utilised the mechanical scrubbing deck with specialist jet washers and mechanical sweepers.

The scrubbing deck, a unique apparatus, allows deep cleansing of extensive pedestrian zones.

The teams also thoroughly cleaned underpasses, the vicinity of the memorial, and the entrance to West Lakes Academy.

Cumberland Councillor Denise Rollo, Executive Member for Sustainable, Resilient, and Connected Places, said: "We are pleased that this deep clean initiative has been implemented across the Cumberland patch.

"We have now successfully undertaken deep cleans in Workington, Cleator Moor, Millom, as well as Egremont."

She continued: "Enhancing the attractiveness of these town centres is excellent news for both the local community and our visitors.

"Initiatives such as the street cleaning programme shows Cumberland Council’s dedication to create a cleaner, safer, and more vibrant area for all, and highlights a sense of pride and shows our commitment to put health and wellbeing at the heart of everything we do."
