Gayle Marquis-Walker on Dog attack

29th July 2021 @ 2:02pm

One of our dogs was set upon by a sandy coloured, Cairn terrier-type dog this morning whilst we were walking along the canal towpath towards the marina (from Audlem). In an attempt to get our 15year old dog away from the attacking dog, my husband picked our dog up, only for the offending dog to jump up and bite my husband on the hand (it was still trying to get to our dog), resulting in my husband sustaining a nasty puncture wound which is requiring treatment. What I was absolutely appalled about, is the absolute ignorance of the owner and the other lady she was with, as they simply walked off along the towpath, towards Audlem without an apology or anything, despite us shouting that her dog had bitten my husband. They also had with them a black labrador and another large red-coloured dog. I believe she may be local, as are we. We will be reporting the incident as the attack was completely unprovoked and targeted at our smaller dog and I would not wish this to happen to anybody else. More to the point, if your dog has a tendency to go for others KEEP IT ON A LEAD.

Throwing Eggs

Did anyone notice any antisocial behaviour last night in Audlem? Unfortunately our airbnb apartment was occupied last night and the guests had eggs thrown at them through the (open) window. Not the kind of thing we would usually expect from Audlem. Most guests comment how welcome they are made to feel in the village. We have new guests coming in today and have to get this cleaned up before they check in. Really disappointing that we have to go to this extra work and cost for such unnecessary behaviour.

Lynn Turner on Extra Large Plastic Tank

26th July 2021 @ 9:09am

Hi Bob Thanks for your advice. We agree completely. For any concerned followers, if a tank of this type was used for temporary storage we would of course cut the top off, use the ponds existing pump/ filter provide adequate shade and a net. This is just a short term fix whilst a new pond is under construction. Lynn

Nigel Machin on Tree Surgeon Recommendations

26th July 2021 @ 9:09am

Hello – Wondering if anyone can recommend a tree surgeon to trim some large Conifers on the garden boundary – Thanks


26th July 2021 @ 9:09am

A huge thank you to ASET for providing a very memorable Festival Of Transport on Sunday which our members thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks must also go to the Marshals and organisers at Hankelow and Audlem who made everything run so smoothly. We also thank the Residents of Audlem and Hankelow who made the Show so special by showing their support along the route and at the showground. We, as the Potterties & South Cheshire MG Owners Club attend many car shows throughout the year but it is Audlem Festival of Transport that always remains special. Long may it continue. Once again a BIG BIG THANK YOU.

Benjie Haq on Benjie's Doggerel

26th July 2021 @ 8:08am

My name is Benjie and I am a dog
I like nothing better than to go for a jog.
The trouble is my nerves are bad
And I hate fireworks, which is very sad.
On Friday and Sunday they were far away
But to my ears they were clear as day,
My tail goes down and I run to hide
Until my Mum comes to my side.
Humans love them , she does tell
But for me It is a living hell.
Children have stars in their eyes
But inside me a little dies.
It seems that I should try to be strong
If My Mum is right, I must be wrong.

bob fousert on Extra Large Plastic Tank

25th July 2021 @ 8:08pm

To whoever is asking for an extra large plastic tank I would suggest that you think twice before putting fish into a container similar to the one on your listing. Unless the top is cut off and a source of oxygenation such as a water pump is supplied, your fish won't last very long.

rosemary green on Parish councillors private carpark

24th July 2021 @ 8:08pm

For several nights now I've seen a rental van parked outside the buttermarket whilst its driver enjoys his tea at the Lord Combermere, I was just wondering if this was a privilege of being a parish councillor or has this councillor just taken upon himself to adopt this as his car parking space. Just wondering if its worth perhaps painting a bay with his name on to save confusion

ROB TURNER on Turnpike and Playing Field

23rd July 2021 @ 5:05am

LOST, MISSING, CAN NOT FIND, Turnpike? For such a great and valuable village resource , why isn't it on the AOL map and village information boards on the carpark and canal for anybody new or old to the village,

Rachel Bailey on Geoff Farr

22nd July 2021 @ 6:06pm

Thank you Celia for alerting us to the passing of Geoff Farr. What an amazing life he has led, if a light plane flies over the area, I never think otherwise than, 'its Geoff', albeit I know in recent times it is a member of his family.
May I via chatbox send my sincere condolences to all of his family.

Catherine Vickers on Lost a dog in Hankelow?

Jude Goldie on Apology

21st July 2021 @ 7:07pm

Apologies to anybody our teenage son managed to upset this morning by having a bonfire and creating lots of smoke. He forgot to engage brain whilst home alone and clearing garden greenery!

Catherine Vickers on Lost a dog in Hankelow?

21st July 2021 @ 6:06pm

We have someone's small brown wire haired terrier- was loose on Audlem Road in traffic.
He's safe here but no doubt wants to be reunited !

Christina Lawson on Permitted Noise Levels

21st July 2021 @ 4:04pm

Thanks Steve for those figures re noise to be expected in Hankelow and in Monks Lane from the proposed use of The PARKES as a large wedding venue for up to 300 guests. They could help myself and any others who also wish to add our objections to send to Cheshire East Planning, the deadline for which is under 2 weeks away.
The figures you give for Monks Lane are at the Heathfield Road end, so I imagine will be much worse for those nearer The PARKES itself.

Celia Bloor on Geoff Farr

21st July 2021 @ 3:03pm

Just seen a tiny notice in the Chronicle that suggests Geoff has died. Did I blink and miss an announcement? Lovely man full of anecdotes and author of at least one book. Please forgive me if I have had a senior moment and should have known!

Roland Turner on Looking for a new tarmac drive

21st July 2021 @ 12:12pm

I'm looking to widen my existing tarmac drive and wonder if anyone can recommend anyone who would do a good job. Thanks

Terry Aston on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

20th July 2021 @ 8:08pm

Crikey Colin, that's a fair old list. But how come you haven't warned also about Billy's rocket launches – they must make the foundations shake when he ignites the engine?
I've got a neighbour with a noisy black Ford Capri, but I'm not complaining about it as he's promised me a go in it, although I guess we'd better avoid Saturday night or Sunday afternoon just in case someone complains.

Billy Gibbons on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

20th July 2021 @ 7:07pm

Jennie; There is an alternative but I'm far too polite to tell you (as people who have lived here as long as I have; 64 and 3.9 years and counting and who know me) will tell you.
I suppose it's a bit like the people (name not included because I don't know their names) who moved here to a property near the Church then...guess what....complained about the Church Bells ringing! Not the same thing I know but......very similar!
(Some) People have jobs and the only time some of them get to do thier own jobs is when other people have done theirs. Live and let live or..........................................................................

Steve Elliott on Permitted Noise Levels

20th July 2021 @ 7:07pm

Hi Christina.
If you mean the houses on Monks Lane where it meets Heathfield Road, then they are about 530m from The Parkes, so the theoretical sound level could be about 66dB Event LAeq and 97dB peak. The Green at Hankelow is 930m away so the levels could be about 61dB and 94dB. Obviously as I said in the article, weather and other factors could change these values.
Continuous conversation is 60dB and laughter 65dB, so Anwyl and Lyme Wood Grange could experience loud conversation plus bass peaks. Corbrook would be most unpleasant.
I've read that some applications have been approved, but they have been limited to a maximum of 30 events per annum and that the disco has to end at 10pm weekdays and 11pm weekends.
