A new CCTV camera has been installed at Nanny Goat Park in a bid to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.
The camera, part of St Helens Council’s CCTV network, will be used to monitor the new skatepark area.
It was funded by cash from the Councillor Improvement Fund.
Every year the fund has around £15,000 per ward to spend on projects suggested by local residents.
Councillors then decide which projects can be supported – taking into account budgets and timescales – and work with residents, groups and partner organisations to develop them.
Any residents who want to find out more about the fund in their area should contact their ward councillor.
