Thursday 12th October:  More bin misery on the way but great news for Warrington as the Arts Council secures grant funding of £850K

Warrington bin collections resume between Tuesday 17th October and Friday 20th October (Only BLACK bins will be collected in this period).  

However, further strike action will take place between Tuesday 24th October and Monday 6th November, causing more misery for Warrington residents.

In the meantime Warrington Borough Council are recommending that you flatten waste as much as possible, try to share bin space with a willing neighbour – or to use one of the community recycling centres:

Warrington Contemporary Arts Fest and town’s cultural offer set to be transformed thanks to £850K grant funding

A huge funding boost which will create a significant, lasting and transformational change within Warrington’s cultural offer has been unlocked.

Arts Council England has awarded Culture Warrington a £600,000 grant as part of its ‘Place Partnership Fund’.

This combined with significant match funding from Warrington Borough Council and Warrington BID bring the total to £840,000 and will enable the arts charity to create a vibrant two-year programme focused on developing a step change for Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival.

The game changing sum of money will not only extend the festival’s scope and scale but renew its focus on accessible large-scale, outdoor and family-friendly events. For example, previous awe-inspiring installations like Museum of the Moon and immersive, uplifting community gatherings such as Light Night will become more commonplace.
