Nigel Mottershead on Follow the Rules?

As I said earlier: many people just don't get how serious this is or are plain stupid.

Unless I'm wildly mistaken, there is no requirement to wear masks out of doors.

Hi, can anyone recommend a local damproofing firm please?

Sounds like some people in the village need to stop watching the BBC.

Why I am of the opinion that it is good manners to wear a face covering in places like the Coop why you would ever wear one walking in fresh air is beyond me.

My husband and I are both high risk so the only thing we can do weather permitting is to go for a walk .
However we have decided not to go any more because we keep meeting people not wearing masks and unless we move onto the road or into some ones drive the other people just carry on as usual without their masks.

With today's news that temporary mortuaries are being installed in Surrey woodland to cope with the number of dead, surely it is time for the Co-Op to insist on customers who refuse to wear a mask on grounds of disability, to be asked to provide proof in the form of a doctors certificate. This course of action should be coming from the top down but as we currently have a Trumpesque administration the message has to come from the grassroots. The Co-Op owe a duty of care to their own staff as well as their customers. Clear signage on the front door should inform all who wish to enter that they will be asked to leave if they have no medical proof of disability. I speak as a life long asthmatic and I have no trouble wearing a mask.

I had a similar experience to Margaret when I challenged a couple of lads in the Co-op some weeks ago which resulted in one of them shouting in my face "I don't care". I did write to the Co-op Head Office and I just received a standard reply that they would talk to the store but I never heard anything else. Perhaps stronger noticing would help enforce the rules although these individuals obviously thought they were above them.

I also read the Times article, most of the recent publicity has centered on the demise of gas boilers, but I would think oil is equally polluting. I am aware that NWF are starting to market a recycled bio oil but don't know the cost or how clean it is. As a village I do think we need to investigate all options for the future.

Like Margaret Roberts, I too feel strongly about the total ignorance and selfishness of people – young and older too, who flout the rules that we currently have to follow.
It is partly down to these individuals, that we are in this situation now and also thanks to them that it looks as though the rules for shopping in supermarkets including the Co-Op is about to get even tougher.
I believe that staff should be permitted to correctly and politely challenge those that don't protect themselves and others, and, I tip my hat to Margaret for doing this with the two young characters recently.
There are still many people amongst us all that just don't get the seriousness of this or, who are just plain stupid.

David Parry on "Follow the Rules" article

Interesting points raised and whilst I would contest it is not the job of shop workers to enforce the rules and also that the rule breaking is definitely not confined to the young...I think both of those discussions would be doing a disservice to the collective effort.

Focus on the minority of examples of "non compliance" exaggerates their prevalence and encourages more people to think "well, lots of people are breaking the rules, so....". In this way, we promote the exact behaviours that we are seeking to stop!

Far more productive in my view would be to focus on the many good behaviours and congratulate ourselves for being, on the whole, collectively responsible and considerate.

Hi everyone, we are looking to move to the Audlem area soon. We have a two-year old so can anyone recommend a registered Childminder in the area please?

Many thanks

Thanks for posting this; could be a great idea for Audlem too.
Maybe the Turnpike Field could be used?
More information on the project here too which has answers to many questions:
Let's see if there is interest to look into taking it further.

Christine Johnson on Teasels in Turnpike

For about a week now, when I walk past the teasels in Turnpike Field, early in the morning, I have seen at least a dozen goldfinches feeding on them. I keep trying to take a photo but they are very shy.

Saw this in The Times today, it's an interesting concept

Robert Dickinson on Medical Centre

I was perhaps premature in my comment and In view of something I missed before & recent comments here accept that our team here are part of a much larger effort to counteract this awful pestilence thats on us all. Let us all do as were asked and keep safe for our community. Ive never known a better one

I took my father yesterday for the Covid vaccination + like others have already said the whole process worked very well. Numerous people were helping from aiding parking, directing where to go and checking details. Nantwich Civic Hall is an ideal location. Thanks must go to all the medics & admin staff who have enabled this to happen.

Nigel Machin on Vaccine

8th January 2021 @ 12:37pm

Mother-in-Law had the vaccine yesterday at Nantwich – she has had no side effects and the whole process was very efficient.

Chris Lewis on Queue for vaccine

8th January 2021 @ 10:53am

I agree with Bob Mc,
I had a telephone appointment ,which after discussion meant I had to attend the Centre,. which was offered by mid afternoon. Had the surgery had to vaccinate with the Pfizer vaccine they would have had to process 900+ people in 24-48 hours before the vaccine lost its potency,meaning doses having to be wasted. To me it makes sense to use the civic hall at Nantwich to maximise throughput and vaccine. Once the Oxford/Zenica arrives it is a different story as it can be stored at+5 to +8 C.unlike the Pfizer which has to be stored at -70C in batches of approx 900 doses and takes far longer to reconstitute for use. We should be grateful for the efforts being made to vaccinate as many as possible of us oldies to free up resources for the younger generation

Pat Winfield on Vaccine

8th January 2021 @ 9:18am

Pleased to report that I had my first vaccine in Nantwich yesterday, along with a number of other people from Audlem. No ill effects apart from a sore arm.
Civic Hall very busy but plenty of helpers and well organised when I went.

Pat Jones on Vaccine

8th January 2021 @ 8:21am

People from Audlem are being vaccinated.I can name at least 5 people who went to the Civic centre yesterday.

Celia Bloor on Queue for vaccine

8th January 2021 @ 7:18am

We were in Nantwich yesterday and observed a steady flow of people through the Civic Hall. Part of the car park is free and reserved for those with vaccination apps. Other spaces limited to M & S and by library bits so if able to walk to shops I would use another car park. I believe at least one Audlem resident was vaccinated yesterday.

Dear Aaron
Given I'm further down the surname list than you, may I adopt your great idea.
Aaronetta Aardvark

John Tilling on Queue for vaccine

7th January 2021 @ 9:54pm

Having been at the back of any surname-based queue all my life, I have decided that the time has come, with a queue of potentially several million for the jab, to change my name to Aaron Aardvark.
