Tennis decision called ‘out’ by Nantwich councillor

Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester has slammed Cheshire East Council for closing down all three tennis courts at the Nantwich Barony sports complex for resurfacing  in the first week of Wimbledon.

Council not taking dog fouling and littering seriously

CONCERNED: UKIP councillor Brian Silvester

Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is calling on the Cheshire East Council to hand out more ‘on the spot’ fines for dog fouling and littering.

He said,” The number of fines that have been handed out in the first five years of the Council’s existence are derisory. With a population of over 370,000, covering 450 square miles, to hand out just 15 fines for dog fouling over the last two years is pathetic.”

Based at Millfields Primary School the 7th SWC Nantwich Millfields Beavers and Cubs colony have recently opened their doors to over 25 enthusiastic children.

The new colony was formed due to the large waiting list at both the Nantwich and Stapeley groups, with approximately 70 to 80 children on their combined waiting lists, many of whom will possibly not be able to join their chosen section or group.

South West Cheshire District Commissioner Ian Sowerby approached Millfields Primary School as a suitable venue in a prime location.
