Calling all friends of John Carr, can you spare some time to pay him a visit?

JOHN CARR

John will be known to many of you as a long term resident of Mottram St. Andrew and the Clerk to the Parish Council for the best part of 20 years. John and his wife Betty are residents of the Sunrise Establishment in Mobberley and John is hopeful of making contact with old friends from the Village. He would enjoy the stimulation of discussing old times in the Village and generally have a good chinwag about life’s problems and putting everything right. He can be contacted on a direct phone line, the number is available from Ron Taylor 01625 585039 or arrangements can be made to visit John in a totally secure Covid environment by contacting Sunrise Reception on 01625 880300.

Let’s hope some of John’s old friends will be able to respond.

Community Speed Watch

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Community speed watch

Community Speed Watch is a national initiative where active members of local communities supported by their local PCSO monitor the speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.

Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds. In cases where education is blatantly ignored and evidence of repeat or excessive offences is collated, enforcement and prosecution follow.

We are looking for volunteers to join our CSW team and help keep your local roads safe from excessive speeds.

If you would like any further information or would like to volunteer to start a watch in your area please contact me directly at andy.vashistha@cheshire.pnn.police.uk

PC Chairman’s report – February 23rd 2021

Dear Mottram St Andrew residents,

On Monday the Prime Minister set out his road map for the final stage of our long and painful COVID-19 journey. The vaccine rollout has ensured that the light at the end of a very dark tunnel, is now in our sights.

Some of you may have endured great suffering and/or hardship in the last twelve months, for losing family or friends, a job or simply freedom, has been incredibly hard. And yet, as we transition from winter into spring, and snowdrops and daffodils emerge from the soil once more, optimism takes over our emotions.

Since January last year, all Parish Council meetings have been held on Zoom. So, too, have all meetings with Cheshire East Council and the Cheshire Association of Local Councils (ChALC). Who, by now, has not heard of ChALC’s Jackie Weaver? Unknown previously outside Cheshire, there can be few people in the whole country who have not seen or read about her bruising encounter with some of Handforth’s Parish Councillors. Jackie acquitted herself very well – fortunately, MStA PC meetings are usually far more sedate and civilised affairs!

Whilst Zoom has been a lifesaver in many ways, it is no substitute for human contact. We look forward with enthusiasm to the next time we can meet in person.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Zoom at 6.30pm on Monday March 15th. One of the agenda items concerns a proposal by Cheshire East to merge certain parishes across the county. In our case, the recommendation is that we are merged with Over Alderley. This would mean a reduction in the number of councillors and the need for only one Clerk and is bound to provoke a healthy debate as to the pros and cons of such a move. If you have a view on the subject, you are most welcome to attend the meeting on Zoom (login details will appear on notice boards and on www.mottramstandrewpc.org.uk the week before) or you may email your comments to me at the email address below.

In the meantime, I hope you are all getting your vaccinations and that you are maintaining good health, both physical and mental.

Best wishes

 

Robert Hughes

Chairman

Mottram St Andrew Parish Council
