Giving cyclists 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:

4:36pm Wednesday 27th August 2014

THE prospect of more affordable housing in Knutsford is welcome especially if, as one of your recent contributors to Opinion suggested, the units are not all the standard four bedroom configuration but of different sizes that will attract the young 'first home seekers' as much as the more elderly 'downsizers'.

A lack of knowledge

8:30am Wednesday 23rd July 2014

In reply to last week’s letter ‘Unfair sniping at the town council’ in which “name and address supplied” cast several slurs on The Knutsfordian’s character, the Knutsfordian would point out that his invitation being lost in the post is something of a running joke and at no time has he ever had any desire to attend Civic Sunday.
