More money for Crewe

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle

Crewe will benefit from £22.9m after being announced as one of the latest UK towns to successfully secure a Town Deal. The announcement follows the recent news of Cheshire East Council’s successful bid to the Government’s Future High Streets Fund delivering £14.1m invested in the town over the next three years. When will it be Alsager’s turn?

Electric charging points

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

Cheshire East Council have been considering their electric vehicle charging strategy and view town centre car parks, which they own, to be prime sites for locating charging points, both to help keep people coming to town centres and also, possibly, to raise some revenue.

Health professionals plead for no change to behaviour

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle and Alsager Nub News

Alsager Medical Centre, along with other local GP surgeries, has said that given the rising infection rates everyone should continue to wear masks and maintain social distancing within the surgeries, despite the relaxing of laws by the government.

Cheshire East Council Director of Public Health Dr Matt Tyrer and fellow directors of public health across Cheshire and Merseyside have joined forces as the Champs Public Health Collaborative to urge people "to go above and beyond the minimum required, in the light of rising Covid-19 infections locally and changes to the national restrictions".

Dr Tyrer warned: "This is a very serious situation and it’s going to get far worse before it gets any better. People are being asked to take their individual and collective role to reduce the transmission of the virus incredibly seriously, and not see July 19 as a reason to stop all behaviours that have slowed down the spread of the virus over the past sixteen months, especially when in close contact with others.”

Covid 19 – cases and hospitalisations strongly UP AGAIN

7 days to 17 July

A further alarming increase in Cheshire East and England this week, so please still be vigilant.

The numbers of patients being treated for coronavirus in Leighton Hospital has risen to its high level for more than three months as infection rates soar in Cheshire East. Last week (July 13) there were 17 people undergoing hospital treatment for the virus in the Crewe medical complex, two of whom required ventilation.

The interactive map seems to be playing up this week but as far as I can tell the Alsager West figures are alarming – 62 new cases giving a rolling rate of 1092. Alsager East is a little better – 39 new cases with rolling rate of 597.

Cheshire East rolling rate is 491 (305 last week), England is 529 (350 last week). So Alsager is way above the average. THIS IS NOT OVER.
