MY faith in human nature was restored last week.

Helpful ladies

4:14pm Friday 24th October 2014

I WOULD like to thank the ladies who came to the aid of my father, whose disablement scooter became stuck as he tried to post a letter at Parkgate on Saturday, October 4.

Disruptive road works

4:13pm Friday 24th October 2014

SOME of the comments that have been made about the Mobberley Road roadworks by both the council and readers are incorrect, Guardian, October 8.

Road chaos

Knutsford Guardian:

5:07pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

I AM in full agreement with the letter from Rick Weightman, Guardian, October 1, regarding the chaos caused by the Mobberley Road closure.

Other option available

Knutsford Guardian: Parking Meter

5:04pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

SINCE my family and I moved to Knutsford in 1970, we have been grateful to use the facilities at the community hospital, and at no time during that period have we been unable to park there.

Nothing but a stealth tax

Knutsford Guardian: Parking Meter

5:02pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

ONCE again medical facilities are under attack in Knutsford.

Parking plan is a flawed idea

Knutsford Guardian: PARK STRIFE: Carmarthenshire county council has disputed that the £487,000 it made from parking charges last year was "profit".

5:00pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

I READ with horror the plan to use automatic number plate recognition technology to enforce parking charges, Guardian October 1. While there is little doubt that the spaces at the hospital are open to abuse, the use of ANPR, in partnership with “private parking companies”, is a fundamentally flawed business model.

Road closures

Knutsford Guardian:

4:57pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

IN RESPONSE to Rick Weightman’s letter in the Guardian, October 1, regarding road closures.

Business close

Knutsford Guardian: Sunday opening hours piloted at Darlington Post Office delivery office

4:51pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

IT IS with much regret and sadness that after serving the community for 23 years, Mere Post Office and Village Store will be closing, because unfortunately we cannot survive in the current economic climate.

Think again

Knutsford Guardian:

4:48pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

HAVE the East Cheshire NHS Trust taken leave of their senses at proposing the new parking charges? I can predict there will be plenty of space in the car park after April because no-one will pay to park there.

Parking meters

Knutsford Guardian:

4:43pm Wednesday 15th October 2014

ALTHOUGH there is still no news of the health and wellbeing centre for Knutsford, the authorities concerned have decided to impose punitive parking charges on patients using the Knutsford Community Hospital, Guardian, October 1.

Tax concerns

Knutsford Guardian: A new report says North-East jobseekers are paying the price of George Osborne's 'slash and burn' approach to the public sector.

1:05pm Thursday 2nd October 2014

So Mr Osbourne wishes to freeze working age benefits at £100 billion.

Cut-up county

Knutsford Guardian:

12:59pm Thursday 2nd October 2014

CHESHIRE, I was taught long ago as a school boy, is a pan-shaped county and so it was, and still is.

Wasted facility

Knutsford Guardian: Close-up of Golf Club and Golf Ball (9720640)

12:52pm Thursday 2nd October 2014

THE closure of Peover golf course is a huge waste of a fantastic sporting facility and a salutary reminder that we shouldn’t take these community benefits for granted.

Road closures

Knutsford Guardian: Major delays near Newhaven as A259 closed following crash

12:49pm Thursday 2nd October 2014

THIS morning I was trying to get from Shaw Drive to Legh Road via Mobberley Road, so I could get to my business in Northwich via Plumley, to avoid the road works. They had blocked off all the roads in and out.

Explain claims

4:58pm Friday 26th September 2014

4:54pm Friday 26th September 2014

YOUR article on the closure of Peover Golf Club (Guardian, September 17) fails to mention PGC Ltd was placed into administration on Friday, September 12, and it was the administrators' decision to shut down the golf element of the club.

Good work on restoring grave

Knutsford Guardian: Grave of golfer George Duncan. n143790 (10142163)

5:00pm Wednesday 17th September 2014

WHAT an excellent piece of work by PCs Dawber and Holt, restoring the grave of George Duncan. Wouldn’t it now be good, if the people just down the road at Mere Golf and Country Club, who have an entire suite named after the golfer, volunteered to keep the grave well maintained?

Giving cyclists a bad name

Knutsford Guardian: Highway Code is being forgotten

4:56pm Wednesday 17th September 2014

WHILE there has been an increase in the number of (mainly responsible) cyclists in Knutsford, there are a considerable number who are failing to follow the basics of The Highway Code, giving cyclists in general a bad name.

We need news about centre

Knutsford Guardian: Letter: They’ll always find a way

2:45pm Wednesday 10th September 2014

THE letter in last week's Guardian regarding the depressingly neglected look of both the former Tatton Ward and Bexton Court reminded me that it is now over six years ago that the Cheshire East Primary Care Trust told us it was initiating plans for a new health and wellbeing centre in Knutsford as, like it or not, change was inevitable as the option to do nothing was not on the table.

More needed than housing

Knutsford Guardian: Wandsworth house prices set to rocket by more than 20 per cent

2:41pm Wednesday 10th September 2014

THE prospect of more affordable housing in Knutsford is welcome, especially if, as suggested, the units are not all the standard four bedroom configuration but of different sizes that will attract younger first home seekers as well as the more elderly “downsizers”.

Spend cash on small roads

Knutsford Guardian: Proposed route for the A556 bypass at Mere. (9838488)

2:23pm Wednesday 10th September 2014

I AM sure the people in Mere will be over the moon about this. The A556 is a busy road but the traffic moves at 50 mph and is relatively safe.

Car boot sale was a cracker

Knutsford Guardian:

2:21pm Wednesday 10th September 2014

A WORK colleague told me about the Knutsford Scouts’ annual Giant Car Boot and Family Fun day on the Heath last Sunday – and I'm so thrilled she did.

Keep our local paper local!

Knutsford Guardian:

4:28pm Wednesday 3rd September 2014

THIS is just a minor gripe, but in our household, we take a national newspaper every day of the week and the Knutsford Guardian on Wednesdays.

Time for bosses to get cutting?

Knutsford Guardian: It had been hoped that a grant from Cheshire East Council would get the ball rolling on other funds being released but so far that hasn’t happened.

Knutsford Guardian: Olivia Buckley and Patrick Smith will be starring in 'My Boy Jack' at Knutsford Little Theatre.

4:03pm Wednesday 3rd September 2014

I HAVE been associated with Knutsford Little Theatre now for 14 years.

Time to explain schools plan

Knutsford Guardian:

4:01pm Wednesday 3rd September 2014

4:36pm Wednesday 27th August 2014

A lack of knowledge

Knutsford Guardian:

DAVID Morgan recently reviewed Rina Tillinger’s book “Tiptoe Through the Tombstones” in which she said she wanted to start an organisation to preserve gravestone inscriptions.
