Close encounters of the tractor kind
That’s what it felt like, walking to school this morning. I guess it’s appropriate, as it’s the school’s Harvest Festival celebration today.
First there was a combine harvester. Wow they’re wide when you’re on the pavement. Then a tractor, then another. Next there came a tractor and finally a tractor. Most of them with a trailer bouncing along behind.
Luckily we’d managed to dodge past much of the overgrown hedgerow before they arrived. My daughter kept us back against the hedge, she was so worried about our safety with the vehicles so close.
Then a moment of calm, before a couple of lorries attempted to pass each other just before the school bell went. More pictures from today are in the photo gallery.
D-day today – Cheshire East’s planning committee will decide upon the school’s car park planning application. Looking at the council’s website, there have been over 100 supporting comments sent in (12/3464N). The planning committee meet at 2pm in the Municipal Buildings in Crewe.
Keep a look out for a special posting this afternoon – I’ll share the committee’s decision as soon as we have it.
