Mad, scary and bad

Surviving the walk to school each morning

Snap happy

Seems like I’ve started a trend.  This morning, on our way to school, we spotted another person taking photos along Broad Lane.  Strange thing was, this person looked to only be taking photos when there was no traffic!  If I’d been on my own, I would have asked him what he was doing.  However, with a child present, I didn’t want to risk an altercation along the lines of last Wednesday’s.

Our walk was pleasant, as for once the road was relatively calm.  Where vehicles met, sense prevailed and no dramas unfolded.  If only every day could be like this.  Makes you realise what we’ve become accustomed to over the years.

At school, a couple of parents asked me if I’d seen the photographer – no one seemed to recognise him.  Perhaps you might be able to shed some light?

Yes, it’s zig-zag time again
On our way back home last Friday, I was amazed to see this car pull in to the staff car park entrance, reverse back out onto the road, then pull up in front of the school.  Two ladies waiting on the path got in.  There was plenty of room to park by the old school house, just 10 yards away, but perhaps it was too much to expect them to walk those few yards.

Housing Shenanigans
Saturday’s posting sounds to have struck a chord with many readers of this blog.   Lots of people read and re-read the posting.  I’m told that a number of people saw the article and immediately checked the Cheshire East planning portal.  If you had a look, let me know what you found.

Maybe you’re thinking of commenting on the Muller planning applications for “Nantwich South”?

  1. Just received this comment about the photographer from another parent:

    “I saw photographers too. There was a man in his 30s/40s and also an elderly couple further down near old people’s bungalows. Didn’t recognise any of them”

    Who were these mystery people, what was their purpose?

    • The older couple( thats us, lived in broadlane 44 years) are taking pictures to go with there objection to the new roundabout, to be sent to cheshire east. for a quiet day it looked like a lot of traffic and potential danger to us.The new proposals will make it worse not to mention the construction traffic for years.

      • Thanks for clearing up this little mystery. Good on you both, I would do the same thing in your position (and am doing as we speak). Yes, even the “quiet” days would probably be viewed as unacceptable to most people.
