Solar panels on The Civic?

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle

Alsager Town Council declared a climate emergency in July 2019, and they are now looking at actions they can take to address the issue. One action being considered is to install solar panels on the roof of The Civic. When The Civic was refurbished it was ensured that the roof was sufficiently robust to bear the weight of solar panels. Also it is understood that panels have become significantly lighter in recent years.

Support for vulnerable households

With thanks to Alsager Nub News and Alsager Chronicle

Cheshire East Council has been allocated £2.2m of government funding to help provide food and essentials for vulnerable households over the winter months. The household support fund runs from October 6 to March 31, 2022. Contact Alsager Community Support for further information.

Also please do not forget Alsager foodbank which provides emergency food and support to the local community of Alsager, Rode Heath, Oakhanger, Church Lawton and Scholar Green.
It works with front line services providing emergency food for people in times of crisis. Donate if you are able.

Request for speed indicators

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle

Alsager Town Council has requested Cheshire East Highways to install some speed indicator devices in the town, to deter speeding. So far Cheshire East has refused (requiring evidence of serious accidents and deaths first), but the Town Council is determined to pursue this further. Cheshire Police and Highways are looking for pilot towns to place some speed indicators and the Town Council clerk has submitted a bid. If successful the Town Council will need to make a contribution to the costs.

Hi all

My name is Lizzi and I am a Nub News patch reporter for your lovely town Alsager.

Currently writing a piece on the premier of the new Bond film at Alsager Civic on the 21st November, and just wanted to know what you all think!

Are you planning to go dressed à la 007?
Are you a massive lover or hater of Bond?
Are you a local actor or performer who has an opinion or is inspired by the movie franchise?
Are you a local business that is doing something special to mark the occasion?

Whatever your thoughts or plans are for the premiere next month, I would love to hear them!
