Household Waste Recycling Centres update

Attached update from CWaC regarding HWRCs;

Household Waste Recycling Centre update

22 May 2020

Residents were reminded to only visit if absolutely necessary and consider how essential their trip is before setting off. The recycling centres are for the use of Cheshire West and Chester residents only.

Northwich, Neston, Ellesmere Port, Winsford and Chester HWRCs – update
After two weeks we have reviewed each of the sites and will be returning to normal
operating hours, days and traffic management procedures. These sites will return back to normal on Wednesday 27 May after the bank holiday weekend, so we can manage the expected increase in visitors during the bank holiday.

Frodsham HWRC- update
Frodsham HWRC opened on Friday 15 May, and the additional measures will be in place up to and including Friday 29 May, we will review these and determine the best way forward.  Frodsham is a busy site in the middle of the town centre, and we are currently using the Station car park for people to queue before entering the site to stop queuing on the narrow road up to the site and onto the highway. We will need to return the car park back to its normal use shortly to allow people to park.

Tattenhall HWRC – update
We will review Tattenhall in two weeks to determine if we are able to safely open the site when overall demand has decreased. In the meantime we would encourage residents to use the other sites for the initial phase of recovery, which may reduce demand and allow Tattenhall to open if and when it is safe to do so.

Opening Hours from Monday 25 May – transition to normal hours and days
Monday – extended (Ellesmere Port, Winsford, Chester, Neston, Northwich, Frodsham)
Tuesday – extended (sites as above)
Wednesday – Neston & Northwich closed ( EP, Winsford, Chester, Frodsham – 8am-8pm)
Thursday – Northwich closed ( EP, Winsford, Chester, Frodsham – 8am-8pm. Neston 9am-5pm)
Friday Neston & Northwich open 9am-5pm (EP, Winsford, Chester, Frodsham 8am-8pm)

Frodsham will remain with extended hours up to and including Friday 29 May. From Saturday 30 May sites will be operating as normal with the exclusion of Tattenhall.
Tattenhall remains closed until further notice.

Vehicle access –update
We continue to monitor the type of vehicles that can access the sites. These vehicles are
currently not allowed to use the recycling centres:
1. All vans, obvious van with panelled sides are not to be allowed.
2. All trailers are not allowed.
3. All pickups are not allowed.

Plants available – helping to support UniCef

One of our resident families has chosen to try and support UniCef and they sent this Mail:

“You may not be aware that my wife and daughter have been selling plants at the front of our house – 6 Rowlands View, just opposite the farm shop entrance – from a shop (a painted pallet with shelves) we’ve called “A and F Plants”,  named after the initials of our children. All the plants have been grown in our garden, and so far we have raised just over £108 (next £40 to be deposited imminently), all proceeds of which are going to Unicef to support children who have been affected by the coronavirus. Not bad considering most items are between 20p and a £1!

you can see the page here:

A very colourful display

It has been wonderful to get the support of the community – and i wondered whether you would be able to put a note on the website to see if anyone has any plants (of any sort) they would like to donate to the shop. We have a target of £200, so are over half way there, but are running out of plants!!!

Please let me know if this seems possible. It is a bit of a good news story, so hopefully welcome in these times.

Best Regards,

David and Faye

Virtual VE day service – Lord Mayor message & youtube link

Message from the Lord Mayor of Chester and Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council:


The Right Worshipful
The Lord Mayor of the City of Chester
Councillor Mark Williams
Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council Councillor Bob Rudd

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, sadly the planned civic and military public commemoration events to mark 75 years since the Second World War ended have been cancelled.

However, the Lord Mayor of Chester, The Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Cathedral have come together to produce a Virtual Civic Service to commemorate 75 years since the end of World War 2. Military Personnel, local dignitaries, Chester Cathedral clergy and school children have all contributed to the short service which has been recorded from their personal locations, including on board HMS Albion.

Whatever you have planned on Friday, please take time in your day to sit back and enjoy the virtual civic VE day service.

Attached below is a link to the Council’s You Tube account, where you will find the short 30 minute film. No accounts or logins are required to watch the film – just click on the below link and it can be viewed from any smart phone, smart television, laptop or tablet.

VE Day 8th May 2020

A friend sent me this earlier and I thought, in the circumstances it was worth posting.  It is doubtful that the ‘lockdown’ will be lifted by then, so why not consider having your own small gathering?
