Audlem Online has been told many Coxbank residents are delighted that the hard work of a local campaigner may be about to pay off.

Long-standing Coxbank resident Barbara Hopkins organised a petition asking for support for a speed limit in the area and, in particular, at the junctions with the A529 at Swanbach which most drivers leaving Coxbank have to negotiate.

Local Cheshire East councillor Rachel Bailey spoke with Barbara at an Audlem Parish Council meeting and, as regular readers will know, it was announced at this month's Parish Council meeting that the Swanbach speed limit is now seen as a priority project.

As a Coxbank resident told Audlem Online, it's good to see that "ladies of a certain age" are still prepared to fight for local causes — and, hopefully, make a real difference for their community.

I found this male sparrowhawk devouring a pigeon in our Audlem garden. He was so unconcerned by my presence that I was able to go back into the house to get my camera and then take many photographs from only about three metres away. I eventually left him to finish his meal. All that was visible later were the pigeon's legs and claws. A male sparrowhawk, I'm presuming to be the same one...
