NEW figures reveal that across England only 48 per cent of people living with dementia get a diagnosis. These shocking new figures show dementia is still to be given the same priority as other conditions.

LA Belle Epoque celebrated its 40th birthday in style on November 21, invitations were extended to some of today’s celebrities and it brought back memories for John Howard, co-founder of the restaurant in 1973.

I NOTICED the article about the council’s refusal of a green bin with pumpkin seeds in it because they were “food waste”, (Guardian, November 13.) I fully approve of this policy and hope it takes note of the following food waste as well.

EAST Cheshire failed to consult us on the premature stopping of the green waste collection bins this year, therefore putting council taxpayers to further inconvenience, particularly at this moment when leaves are still falling.

THERE is a public meeting held by Knutsford Town Council at The Curzon this evening at 7pm to discuss the latest news regarding the proposed development of Knutsford under the Local Plan. These plans will have a permanent impact on our town, so it’s important as many people as possible take part in this process if the decisions to be made are for the town’s best long-term interests.

IF I am reading the Guardian report, November 13, correctly about what can and can’t go into the green bin correctly, I seem to be able to use it for cabbage leaves from plants grown in my garden but not if bought in the shops. I should be most interested to learn what training the council workers have to let them distinguish between the two.

DESPITE the repeated pledges by the Cheshire East leader, Councillor Jones, that he would fight to his last breath to save every inch of the green gap, his council is now saying the green gap is out of date and several housing sites in the green gap have been recommended for approval by his planning officers.
1:19pm Wednesday 20th November 2013
MANY people have already paid their council tax until the end of the financial year, under the impression that green waste would be collected as in the past so Cheshire East Council could be in breach of contract in reducing collections, (Guardian, October 16.)

I FEEL it necessary to share the following in the hope it will raise sufficient awareness in the community to prevent a similar or significantly worse attack involving a human being rather than my pet Cavalier King Charles.

IT MUST be said that the summer garden waste collection is a boon to thousands of Cheshire East residents who no longer have to load up car boots, drive to a recycling centre and clean out the insects on return.

ON behalf of the Knutsford and District NSPCC I would like to thank Booths supermarket, their staff and all their customers for their continued support and generosity during our collection weekend in October.

A PRELIMINARY survey of cycle parking revealed the popularity of the recently-installed cycle parking at Knutsford Station courtesy of an enlightened operator, Northern Rail, prompted by Cycle Knutsford.

CLR Yvonne Bancroft’s letter (Guardian, October 30) summed up very nicely the traffic implications of CEC’s decision to override the local opposition and approve Aldi’s application to build a supermarket on what was already one of the most congested roads in Knutsford.
5:28pm Wednesday 6th November 2013
I HAVE to agree with the couple in the feature, concerning the flight paths, (Guardian, October 23.) From the rear of our property in Byley we have always seen aircraft flying up and going into land in the distance, well out of earshot.

I AM writing to support Yvonne Bancroft’s excellent letter in the Guardian, October 30, concerning the scandal of traffic problems since the Aldi opening and to make a couple of hopefully, constructive suggestions.

I LIVE in Plumley and have also noticed that there is an increased number of aircraft which do not seem to follow the defined Standard Instrument Departure procedure routes which bend away before Knutsford, (Guardian, October 23, ‘Mystery of the planes that wake up couple’).
12:17pm Wednesday 30th October 2013
I READ the article regarding the aircraft noise, (Guardian, October 23) and have had exactly the same thing going on for some considerable time, resulting in a mostly one-way dialogue with the airport complaints department.
12:13pm Wednesday 30th October 2013
FROM the moment we knew of the proposed Aldi site, I, along with many other residents wrote to the Guardian and to our town council to set out reasons why Aldi should not be located on Brook Street (“Traffic lights chaos”, Guardian, October 23) I have nothing against Aldi, it is a valuable addition to our weekly shopping options.

I AM writing regarding the recent letters relating to Domino’s Pizza, (Guardian, October 16.) Domino's in Wilmslow will sell you two 11.5-inch pizzas for £9.99, assuming you choose one of their cheapest varieties.

I HAVE to assume that the plan to suspend green bin collections for almost four months this winter was dreamed up by some bright sparks in the Cheshire East Council’s environment department who do not have trees in their gardens, (Guardian, October 16.) If they did, they would appreciate the problems that this idea will present once the autumn leaves really start to fall during the next few weeks.
4:11pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013
THE same day the article “Green bins get a winter break” appeared in the Guardian, October 16, a leaflet dropped through my letterbox from the council confirming no collections from November 18 until March 14, 2014.

FURTHER to the article regarding Trumpet Major William Smith, Guardian, October 2, we wondered if readers were aware that local historian Kath Goodchild worked very closely with Joan Leach on the research, and the ultimate erection of William Smith’s headstone.

An article in the paper about Roger Clarke’s view on women drivers in Knutsford immediately caught my attention, as uncannily I can speak from experience on this one, albeit as a woman ‘pedestrian’, who had some interaction with women drivers − MARIA ANDREUCETTTI, DublinWomen drivers in Knutsford »
The Parish Council Action Group has taken a firm position in totally opposing the construction of HS2; unlike Cheshire East Council, whose leader Michael Jones regards the railway as a ‘done deal’ and not worth ‘wasting time’ opposing. − JOHN KELEHER, School Farm, PickmereProposed HS2 route through Cheshire »
