Further information has been received from Cheshire East Council concerning the availability of a Community Grant towards the costs of an event.

Cheshire East Council has previously supported street parties for both The Queen's Jubilee and Queen's 90th birthday celebrations which collectively saw 325 street parties and other events held within our Borough. It is anticipated that The Great Get Together will be even bigger than these events and we want you to join in. We know from these previous events that people have met neighbours they never knew before, brought people into communities who were previously lonely or didn't feel connected, and bonded communities to make them stronger. The Great Get Together can continue to build on this.

Apply for a Community Grant — deadline Friday 19 May
Please view our community grant web pages for more information and how to apply for a grant to hold a Great Get Together event.

The trophy I had just been presented with, was the "Cely Lindop Memorial...

Well last time we forgot to wish you all a "Happy New Year" — sort of deliberately because as far as dogs are concerned the new year is only just starting. What do I mean — well hang on and I'll tell you!I'm dictating this to himself at the end of January and we were both saying this morning how finally we are starting to see the mornings getting lighter when we are out for a...
