Happy New Year to you, I hope that you had a good Christmas/New Year break.
It seems like a long time since our last walk to school. After a few weeks of waking up that little bit later, it was a bit depressing to see darkness outside this morning. Still, a new term beckoned, with a lovely mild morning. Hard to believe that we’re in the middle of winter.
Our walk was thankfully quiet today, with cars parking up to the 30mph signs (nearly half a mile from school). Up ahead we could see a couple of sticky situations; a massive lorry squeezing through on the pavement nearer to school; then further towards Nantwich a logjam that didn’t move until we were nearly at school.
What’s all this then?
Something caught my eye last weekend; a letter of support for Nantwich South from 14 Broad Lane. Curious to see where this house was in relation to the proposed roundabout on Broad Lane, I had a look for it. On the ground the house numbers jump from 12 to 20, with no room for any buildings between them. So this letter is from someone living at an imaginary house. An imaginary house that has the same postcode as dwellings nearly 1 mile away!
The situation became even more farcical when I read the three letters uploaded from this imaginary address. Letters two and three come from other imaginary houses, on misspelt roads with random postcodes for completely different places. 8 out of 10 for creativity, as for honesty…?
Luckily, Cheshire East’s reply to my email about the “bogus” letters seems to indicate that the volume of comments doesn’t count, just whether they raise “material planning considerations”.
Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 9
Stupid/careless parking: 0
No. of cars parking illegally:0
