Do not make visits to other people's homes or gardens. Restrictions on care home visiting are not being relaxed. Those who are shielding should continue to take extra care.

Latest information and advice
A prominent pedestrian and cycle footbridge over the Oldham Way, connecting residents from Werneth and surrounding areas with Oldham Town Centre, has undergone major refurbishment. The key improvements include: a high-grade stainless steel parapet replacing damaged glass panels; a new lit handrail and improved overhead lighting; and a clean and re-paint of the structure. It is hoped the improvements will encourage more users of the bridge due to the improved look and ‘open’ feel to the footbridge
