St Helens’ iconic Steve Prescott Bridge is set for a pamper as it undergoes a deep clean this week.
The 60-metre footbridge, which features include a stunning parabolic arch, officially opened in January 2012 and is named after St Helens R.F.C. legend, Steve Prescott MBE, who passed away in 2013 after battling a rare form of abdominal cancer.
I am absolutely overwhelmed and humbled to receive an MBE for services to the St Helens Community during COVID 19.
It has been an extremely difficult time for everyone during this pandemic.
This award is dedicated to my beautiful caring mother Val Blondel who sadly left us in January due to COVID. My mum like most was taken far too early.
