Alsager scouting – leaders needed

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

Many scouting groups are run in Alsager but there are waiting lists for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.  They would very much like to recruit additional leaders.  If you would like a chat, without any obligation, about any scouting role and what it involves we would be very pleased to hear from you.  Contact Don Longhurst (Group Scout Leader) via email on gsl@alsagerscoutgroup.org.uk or call 01270 884461.

Cheshire East works

With thanks to the Alsager Chronicle

Cheshire East Council is to carry out drainage investigation and improvement in several locations, including on Sandbach Road South (opposite the Well Pharmacy) and the gully opposite the first house on Cedar Avenue.  The provisional list includes Cherry Lane near the Horseshoe Inn.

Their road patching programme includes Crewe Road and Fields Road, but these will require detailed investigation before determining what can be delivered within the allocated budget.
