This is something your local Liberal Democrat Councillors have been working on for some time.
I am pleased to report that a mobile testing unit will visit Shaw Tuesday – Thursday next week.
The unit will be on the Market Place/Westway car park. We have asked the team running the site if the unit can be located at the Rochdale Road end of the site if this is feasible within operational requirements.
Residents will be able to access testing by car, public transport or on foot, and tests can be booked via the gov.uk website or by calling 119.
The site will only become available for booking the day before, so the Council will make sure they do some promotion of the site from Monday onwards.
If this works well as a location for testing, then we can make further bookings for a mobile testing unit in this location.
I DO HOPE LOCAL PEOPLE WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE AND USE THIS FACILITY.
