Free Christmas lunch for those in need
Longmans farm shop in Aston have kindly offered to provide a free Christmas turkey lunch for residents of Newhall parish who may find it difficult to make their own.
Meals can be delivered (hot or cold) or a lighter turkey sandwich lunch could be provided if preferred.
If you are (or you know someone) in need, please contact Andy Longman directly on 07734 433920 before Christmas eve to make arrangements. A limited number of meals are available and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Public Rights of Way
Cheshire East Council has a large public rights of way network, spanning nearly 2,000km. A small team of officers work hard to resolve issues and to keep the network in good condition. As officers can’t walk every path proactively, they need the help of landowners, walkers and riders to let them know if something needs attention.
The rights of way team would like parish councils and their local communities to keep an eye out for problems such as broken stiles, leaning fingerposts or paths being obstructed by crops or locked gates. Issues like these can be reported to the rights of way team via its online portal by clicking the button below.
The rights of way team would also like to hear from people who might be interested in carrying out path inspections, waymarking paths and carrying out light cutting back of vegetation from around signposts, gates and stiles. If you’re interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
New action group formed
Communities Against Rural Industrial Expansion
Many residents have raised great concerns about the huge concrete plant which has been built next to Wrenbury Station without planning permission. There is an action committee that is doing its best to fight this application, via contact with Cheshire East Council, Councillors, and our MP.
The group is called CARIE – Communities Against Rural Industrial Expansion.
If you have concerns about his development that you have not already submitted to Cheshire East Council, or have examples of the impact on your lives, please email these to the CARIE team using the button below or the link at the top of this page. Thank you.

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN REFERENDUM RESULT
Huge majority for "YES"
The count is complete and residents have voted in favour of the Newhall Neighbourhood Plan by a huge majority.
192 votes were cast, representing a 27.35% turnout, of which:
184 were YES votes
8 were NO votes
So a huge thank you from all of us in the Neighbourhood Plan team - it's really rewarding to know such a high proportion of residents share the vision of the future shape of the parish and are willing to make their voices heard.
The work doesn't stop here though - we now need to focus on how we implement the plan and ensure Cheshire East Council take it into account moving forward. We'll be in touch soon to outline what happens next
Copies of the Neighbourhood plan are available in the Bhurtpore Pub, St Andrew's Church or you can download a copy from the Documents page of this website:
