CM Vision is underway

Home » News » CM Vision is underway

24th October 2011, was the date of the first open meeting Church Minshull residents, who were invited by the CM Vision Steering Committee to learn more about the initiative and to provide feedback on what they would like to see the 'Church Minshull of the future' to look like.

  • Common themes emerged during the evening:
  • A Village Green
  • Footpaths
  • Volume and weight of traffic
  • Bus Services
  • Village website

There were also an encouraging array of ideas where we could collectively make a difference over the short and longer terms. These included improving our environment with lighting, seating and Doggy Bins through a spectrum of enthusiastically proposed initiatives to the bold reopening of the school and a completely new village hall building. Full notes are attached to this page.

The CM Vision committee will be sifting through these ideas and setting up work teams to capitalise on them. In addition there will be a lot of work involved in preparing for the Jubilee celebrations next year in the village.

Well I tell himself its a bathe but really I'm looking for eels, they are said to be good for one's coat — its the slime apparently. Since I've lived here I've hunted for them diligently but with no...

It has felt like the longest summer ever already as I listen to the noise of the rain on our roof. The grass is still a dry shade of crunchy brown from the unbelievable Mediterranean weather conditions we have been having in this little corner of England. It is the hottest summer I can remember since I was a child, collecting water from stand pipes in the streets of Cardiff. Who could have...
