IT’S SHOWTIME The agricultural event of the year is set to bounce back in style for 2013 THIS year’s Nantwich Show looks set to break all records as it returns with a bang on Wednesday July 31. Organisers are keeping their fingers crossed for good weather after the show was cancelled last year following torrential downpours. However interest is greater than ever with trade spaces selling out months before. And the largest cheese show in the world continues to grow with the renowned marquee

now a colossal 80,000 sq ft. It will house a record 3,926 entries from some 24 countries. Show secretary Adrian Lawrence said: “We’ve received even more interest in this year’s show, possibly due to last year’s cancellation. “And this year is shaping up to be the best yet.” The main ring will house the traditional cattle section and shire horses, along with the death defying tricks of stunt

rider Matt Coulter aka The Kangeroo Kid. Celebrity chefs James Martin, Matt Tebbutt and

The worm turns

The 34th World Worm Charming Championship proved a huge success last month. The traditional contest took place within the grounds of Willaston Primary School. Hundreds of participants used all their skill, wits and invention to charm the most worms out of the ground. The championship started at 2pm and participants in each of the 144 plots had 30 minutes to collect as many worms as possible.

PET HOTEL & SPA

Techniques included vibrating a garden fork, singing, playing a musical instrument and riding an adapted bicycle. The trophy for Most Worms was presented Ellie-Jay Morris, eight, and granddad Steve Palmer with 303 worms. The event was filmed by a BBC television crew with Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton collecting 54 worms with the help of local youngsters. The pic by Jonathan White shows local scouts at work.

Council veteran joins UKIP

NEWS 3

Nantwich councillor switches parties WILLASTON councillor Brian Silvester has joined the UK Independence Party. The former Conservative councillor, who has served for 37 years and is a former deputy leader of Cheshire East Council, said it is time for a new beginning. Cllr Silvester, who represents the Willaston and Rope ward, said: “I am joining UKIP because I think it is time for a fresh start in Cheshire East with a new party. “Since the new council was formed in 2009 it has reeled from one disaster to another. “The current Conservative leadership of the council is treating local electors with

contempt. “They believe that they will get re-elected no matter how many times they ignore the concerns of local residents. or damage their interests. “UKIP are now a recognised powerful alternative to the LibLabCon parties. “UKIP have shown nationally they can pick up votes from all the three old parties and also win votes from those who have given up on politics because the other three main parties are now all the same. “I believe that UKIP will become a major force on the Cheshire East Council after the 2015 elections.” • What do you think?

Fair hosts freerunners A SUMMER fair at Wyche Primary School in Nantwich proved a resounding success last month. The Manor Road school staged the event on a Saturday afternoon following organisation from the Friends of Wyche PTA.

goalie’, ‘pick a lolly’, ‘nail in the hay’, ‘higher or lower’, ‘panning for gold’, and a tombola, along with a raffle. There was also a cake stall and a wide range of refreshments. The Nantwich Freerunners (pictured by Jonathan White) gave outdoor demonstrations of their skill and athleticism throughout the day. All funds from the event will go to the school.

Battle stations over Nantwich South CHESHIRE East Council will fight an appeal to build an access road into the proposed 1,100 housing development ‘Nantwich South’. Muller Property Group are appealing after the authority deferred their decision on the plans last April. The Strategic Planning Board deferred after three ‘Category A’ oak trees were illegally felled on the site just days before their decision was due. And now members have confirmed they would have been ‘minded to refuse’ the application. Officers stated in a council report: “It will result in a loss of habitat for protected species and part of an area allocated for tree planting,

landscaping and subsequent management.” Cheshire East will now have to defend its ruling later in the year while Muller also appeal a decision to refuse phase one of the ‘Nantwich South’ development. The first phase would include 189 homes, a new primary school and shops. Leader of the Protect Stapeley campaign, Pat Cullen, said: “The destruction of the trees and some cogent arguments about the environment and the wildlife persuaded the Board to go against the Planning Officer’s recommendations.” The appeal is set to be heard in the autumn. • What do you think?

Rags to riches

STUDENTS at Reaseheath College have handed over nearly £6,000 as a tribute to Britain’s war veterans. Proceeds from the Nantwich college’s RAG (Raising and Giving) activities were handed over to charity Broughton House at the students’ summer graduation ball last month. Broughton House is a care home for ex-servicemen and women of all ages and from all areas of the armed forces. Students raised the cash through a Las Vegas themed RAG Ball, a 665-mile static

cycle challenge, a raft race on the college lake and a tractor pull. Other activities included street collections, a fancy dress pub crawl, car washing, a slave auction, leg waxing and a beer barrel race. Pictured is RAG chairman Sam Norfolk handing a cheque to Chris Thomas with students Imogen Johnson, Ellen Griffin, Ben Lloyd, Luke Evans, Vicky Bloor, Amy Knight, Natasha Taylor, Connor Noble, Christy Heggarty, Carly Gough and Ceara McDermott.

Spotlight on Nantwich wildlife Film unearths town’s water vole population A DOCUMENTARY by a young filmmaker has set the spotlight on one of Nantwich’s rarest creatures. Simon Goodall approached Cheshire Wildlife Trust, who have been monitoring water voles on the Shropshire Union Canal in the town, before filming and producing the work himself. The result captures the heart of the water vole’s life on the canal, which is one of the busiest in the region. Simon, who also narrates the film, explains how the voles have come to see the canal as a safe haven.

Simon, pictured, explains that the threats they face now see them tagged with the unenviable title of Britain’s fastest declining mammal. Cheshire Wildlife Trust has been working with partners to map the fortunes of water voles across the Cheshire region. The project is funded by

Heritage Lottery, Chester Zoo, the Environment Agency and the Canal and River Trust. Last year, the project saw 52 separate water vole surveys undertaken across dozens of kilometres of local rivers, with the equivalent of almost 300 hours of surveys taken on by volunteers. Project officer Dr Vicky Nall said: “What Simon has achieved with this film in such a short time is remarkable. “It takes a lot of patience and dedication to capture the sort of footage Simon has managed to get. “He’s put it together with some delightful images of the other wildlife which all in all gives a real sense of the day-to-day lives of the voles. “We hope it will really

inspire others to keep an eye out for water voles in Cheshire and help us build an even better picture of how these charismatic creatures are faring.” Simon added: “The Wildlife Trusts do a fantastic job helping wildlife across Britain, so I really wanted to support them with this project. “The canal in Nantwich isn’t optimal for these wonderful little mammals so it is fascinating how they are able to turn it in to such a great habitat. “I hope the film helps to encourage people to head out to enjoy the pleasure of watching wildlife and encountering animal behaviour.” The film can be viewed online at www. cheshirewildlifetrust.org. uk.

Midfielder Mark Jones became the club’s sixth signing of the summer – joining new recruits Alex Frost, Ashley Young, Aaron Burns, Adam Carden and Danny Caldecott in a major shake-up at the Weaver Stadium. And Johnson insists more are to follow as he looks to assemble a squad capable of challenging for Conference North football. “I look forward to completing the signings of a further four or five players,” he explained. “I’m very happy with the position we’re presently in and I’ve had some positive talks with other targets. “Hopefully they will see the potential at Nantwich and want to join us. “If not, I will move on quickly to other targets over the next couple of weeks.” Former Witton player Jones, 27, makes the step up from EvoStik Divison One North
