I am hoping that people know the difference between pesticide and weed killer! Mind you the weedkiller probably does kill much of the insect and microscopic life unintentionally.

Lynda White on Missing dog

28th April 2021 @ 6:06am


I live in Burleydam. Yesterday evening a dog was found in my neighbours garden. The dog had no collar so we had no
means of contacting the owner. We decided to take the dog to the Vets in Nantwich to have the dog scanned to locate
the owner.

Owner located living in Audlem. Telephone messages were left on home and mobile numbers by the vets. Phones all went to answer machine. We used this vets as it was the nearest one that was still open as it was 7.45 pm.

Vets were not allowed to give us the owners address but we did find out the dog was called VILIAN.

Grey coloured wired haired dachshund (I think!).

If anyone knows the owner please can you help to make sure they know their dog is found and in a safe place.
Vets telephone number is 01270 610322 Nantwich Veterinary Hospital, Crewe Road, CW5 5SF.

Thank you.
Lynda White.

Vets telephone number is 01270 610322.

Peter Silvester on Embroidery book

27th April 2021 @ 3:03pm

A little while ago, a lady asked if we had in stock at Audlem Mill the Jane Austen Embroidery book. We now have the book, but we don't have your contact details, so please pop in to the shop or phone 01270 811059.

Nick Grundy on Red Peugeot parked in School Lane

26th April 2021 @ 11:11pm

Please could the owner of the red Peugeot, BN14 KRX, parked in School Lane, come and move the vehicle urgently. It is parked immediately adjacent to my house – we need to use a ladder for some building work. The car is in the way. Many thanks.

colin cliffe on Cheshire East Highways

22nd April 2021

I think the communication from the highways team to Rachel just about sums up their ineptitude. Are they saying 'we know it needs doing and we are going to do it this week, please let us know if we don't do it' ......... Will they not know themselves whether they have done it or not?

Chris Lewis on Cheshire East Highways

22nd April 2021 @ 11:11am

Well done Billy, You have been a resident of Green lane rather longer than I have (1984 onwards) I am sure I remember an early series of comments on the failure of Cheshire(might not have been Cheshire East in those days) regarding Naming our road. Hopefully the pot hole opposite my drive, filled sometime in early 2021 and now already growing again will be dealt with far quicker than the signage

Jeff Price on Dog Poo Tipping

22nd April 2021 @ 11:11am

Whilst I agree entirely with Jane Maxwell's point about throwing dog poo into rivers and streams, I'm afraid this is very small fry when compared with the actions of English Water Companies. Raw sewage ,including human waste,condoms and wet wipes were discharged into English rivers 400000 times in 2020. The discharges lasted for over 3 million hours in total. The worst company by far was United Utilities.

Billy Gibbons on Cheshire East Highways

22nd April 2021 @ 7:07am

Thats great news Rachel! Thanks for that. Things seem to be moving in the right direction.
P.S. Apologies to the Editor for using the word 'apathy' in the wrong context. It seemed right when I wrote it but reading it back it seems wrong. Right? ;-)

Rachel Bailey on Cheshire East Highways

21st April 2021 @ 9:09pm

Billy there is more good news, its taken a while and a gentle reminder but ...... today Cheshire East Council Highways Team confirmed that they will attend to the sink hole on Cheshire Street Audlem.

"Good afternoon Councillor Bailey, I apologise for the delay regarding resolving this carriageway defect, I can however confirm that it has been re marked again for completion by the end of the week
Please let me know if this doesn't happen".

Billy Gibbons on Green Lane Sign

21st April 2021 @ 7:07pm

...that is of course..IF CE put it there? To be fair, I did ask them if they could do it ages ago and they said they would looks like they did but.....did they? Due to apathy
on here (apart from my response of course) it looks like they did. If someone else did it, they would surely hint at it. Due to no one hinting at it (yet) I'm taking it upon myself to thank CE for my (our) Green Lane sign. Now.........fix our roads if you don't mind.............;-)

Ann Tilling on Footpaths

21st April 2021 @ 3:03pm

I find it a sadness that Peter(Kay) has had a fairly hostile reaction to his original footpath post. Sad also that the respondents seem to find it amusing or clever to jest about his name. The TV personality(?) must be a few decades younger.
Whilst it may not suit landowners the rights of footpaths are well established and should not be swept aside. Sadly I don't walk very much at all now but when I did I hated electric fences due to an inability to bend easily or step over and an unreasonable fear of electric shocks.
Yes dog owners should be more responsible, a bit easier for me to say that as our one and only beloved dog is long dead. That said landowners have a duty to keep footpaths open.
going around a crop would be easier if fields hadn't become so large.

Peter Kay on Footpath obstruction

This item from the Liverpool Echo gives some information on reasons for leaving dog poo and fines that can be levied.

jane maxwell on Dog Poo Tipping

21st April 2021 @ 10:10am

Is it illegal or just ignorant to throw dog poo into the stream that runs through someone's property, which feeds the Weaver? Better than dumping bags in hedgerows but surely not very eco friendly. I don't think the River Trust would be too happy if we all did it!

Kim jess on Gardening

20th April 2021 @ 4:04pm

We have a long drive(300m+) that periodically needs to be sprayed for weeds. Does anyone know of anyone that can help?

Carol Haq on Dog on the loose!

20th April 2021 @ 3:03pm

We have also seen this dog three times in as many months at 11pm on Cheshire Street, the last time a few days ago. I presume it is the same dog and hope it does not cause an accident or get killed as it was running across the road in the dark. What to do if no-one claims it?

Nigel Young on Footpath obstruction

20th April 2021 @ 10:10am

I Like the suggestion of trying to eliminate left dog faeces, be it bagged and hung from a tree or otherwise. Would AOL offer some anonymity to any dog owner who doesn't do the right thing. Maybe they could explain why they discard the faeces as they do.

I'd like to understand why they do what they do, maybe we can help, just a thought.

Nigel Young on Purporting to be BT Openreach

20th April 2021 @ 10:10am

Just had a call from a person purporting to be from BT Openreach on 00411 844 272294, which is a Swiss registered number. Strange how he had an Indian accent with his name being Oliver. anyway he ended the call quite quickly I suspect it was a potential scam.

Heads up if any one receives a similar call suggesting your Broad Band speed has been compromised, be savvy, don't give any info or let anyone remotely log on to your PC

Rachel Lambie on Dog on the loose!

20th April 2021 @ 10:10am

There's a beautiful red/gold dog running loose around Monks Lane and the fields either side. Runs like a puppy but about the size of a female lab. Collar on. Beautiful colour and looks well fed. I've tried but cannot get him/her to come near me. I'm worried it's going to get hit by something. If it's yours, please let me know the dogs name and I'm happy to help you look for it.

Helen Bradbury Smith on Gardening

We are looking for a local gardener or handy person to help clear my parents' new garden in the village. It needs clearing, digging over and beds reshaping and help planting ready for the summer.

Many thanks
