The Work of the Rangers

The Macclesfield Town Ranger service is an initiative from Macclesfield Town Council that started in April 2019. Initially employing one full time Town Ranger, the aim was to focus on tasks that clear and clean the hard to reach areas, such as road signs, ginnels, grot spots and additional cover for litter picking, street furniture repairs and focusing on the Macclesfield in Bloom floral displays. The Ranger service is complementary and additional to the services contracted by Cheshire East Council. Sometimes a grot spot that needs cleaning up is under the responsibility of Cheshire East Council or a private landowner, however you can still ask and we can direct you to the right place.

The service was so helpful and well received, that Macclesfield Town Council had to increase the provision with two additional Town Rangers from April 2020.  With more staff to tackle a bigger workload, the rangers do an excellent job of keeping the town looking beautiful.

You can help the Ranger Team tackle jobs in your area by sending us details (and pictures if you can) of issues you have come across to admin@macclesfield-tc.gov.uk or via the Macclesfield Town Ranger facebook page and we’ll try, where we can, to help solve the problem.
