I HAVE started to receive envelopes containing petitions filled in by residents representing small groups from around the Cheshire East area.

These groups are being proactive and have been downloading the petition from our website at changecheshireeast.org I would like to convey my thanks and gratitude to all those people taking the time and trouble to do this. It is very clear that there are many people around the borough who share our anger and frustration in the way Cheshire East Council is being run.

If you have not already done so please can I also urge you to print off a copy of the petition and ask your friends, family and neighbours to sign it.

You can also telephone me on 01625 262173. Thank you all for your support.

Cllr James Nicholas Cheshire East Council
