A message about bus services


Earlier today. I received this text message from one of our younger residents – it speaks volumes and you can see a transcript below.  It was followed by a longer conversation about the CWaC/Tarporley Ward Community Transport Survey and also the Utkinton and Cotebrook Neighbourhood Plan.  The texter’s details are withheld by agreement.

“Message received Monday 14th January 2018

Hi, I live in Utkinton, I’m messaging you regarding a public bus going through Utkinton which we could get to places even if it was simply just to Tarporley, on weekends me and a couple other young citizens would like this , it would improve Utkinton social aspects and may gain profits for the future.

 Francis Tunney:

Hello, many thanks for this message. I am afraid that the provision for public transport through Utkinton or Cotebrook is nil at the weekend. Even during the week we have to rely on the community transport that runs between 09:30 and 14:30 Monday to Friday. This method requires you to subscribe to one of these services and then you can only travel by booking 24 hours in advance.

So, I am sorry to say that it is not possible.”

‘Mysterious’ Posts on Quarry Bank, Tirley Lane and Northgate


I was asked a question as to what they were for – and the assumption is that they are the posts for the 20 mph zone that was proposed by CWaC in the ‘consultation’

The schematic Below shows the proposed zone, it isn’t to scale, and the Tirley Lane portion goes up to the current 30mph / Deregulated signs.

A message from Sir John Timpson


We were lucky to have Sir John at the opening of the extension to Cotebrook Village Hall recently where he dedicated one of the new rooms to his wife – and it is being well used already.  But few know of his background – though many will have used the ‘Timpsons Shops’ for keys and other stuff and even fewer will know of the new ‘Barber Shops’ that his business is opening alongside some retailers across the country – I used one this week and they are really good.

But this piece isn’t about patting his organisation on the back, it is to give you an opportunity to read his piece about the paucity of city and town centres and it really is worth reading – even if you disagree with the perspective,

You can find it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46630861

Have a merry Christmas.
