The annual wine tasting event at Manley Village Hall will take place on Friday 10th November. For full details see below:
If you have travelled along Church Road recently you will have noticed a new addition to the landscape opposite the school. The parish council have been working with a number of local groups to design, build and install a new wildflower interpretation board.
The board has been built by Richard Stradling in collaboration with the scouts. The photographs and text have been provided by the Ashton Wildflower Group and the content design and layout has been completed by the school.
Finally, the two new wildflower patches planted last spring at the bottom of Shay Lane and Grange Road have grown albeit not helped by the weather. Also, the Parish Council has agreed with CWaC that we establish a further wildflower patch along The Meadows. The parish council would like to thank everyone involved in the project.
on Monday 13th March at 6.00pm
in the Parish Rooms
The Parish Meeting is held once a year and provides the opportunity for all the community groups in the area to come together and catch-up on the activities of their groups within the village who contribute to its functioning and wellbeing.
Please come along to share how your group has served the community over the last year and their plans going forward.
Please contact the email@example.com to confirm your group’s attendance.
The meeting will end on or before 7.15pm to allow the PC meeting to commence.
Following the very popular free training sessions that have been running over the last few weeks, we have managed to secure two further dates for any residents who would like to take part.
The dates are:
- 1st March 6:30pm – 7:30pm (approx) in the Parish Rooms
- 8th March 6:30pm – 7:30pm (approx) in the Parish Rooms
The sessions are run by a First Responder and cover basic life support and how to use the defibrillators that we have available around the village.
The feedback from residents who have attended so far has been extremely positive and so if you would like a place on either of these training sessions please contact Jane Colville on firstname.lastname@example.org
With the local council elections coming up in May your parish council would like to ask everyone to consider joining the council.
We currently have 4 vacancies on the parish council and are keen to fill them.
Please do take a look at the link below for information about becomming a parish councillor and consider joining us.
The Parish Council have created some Tips and Tricks guides to help residents get the most out of the system. The guides will explain how to ‘get rid’ of unwated posts and ‘hide’ neighbourhoods etc so that you see what you want to see.

The parish council are investigating what local support mechanisms they can put in place to assist both host families and their Ukrainian guests. To assist us in this process, if you are hosting a Ukrainian family can you please let us know by completing the details below.
The planning teams have been really busy over the last few weeks and some notable milestones are:
- Confirmation that we have been granted just under £10,000 from the National Lottery
- Confirmation that the WI will fund the inter-generational audio-visual production
- Confirmation that the Sands Veterinary Practice will sponsor the dog show
- Confirmation that a number of other local businesses and residents will provide sponsorship and support in kind
This is all great news but we do still need to complete the jigsaw and would ask that all local businesses, organisations and residents consider supporting the festival of events by pledging support to the Beacon Lighting event: https://www.spacehive.com/a-beacon-is-lit-in-ashton-hayes
If we can get at least 20 sponsors CWaC will look to sponsor the event too, making it even easier to reach our overall target. Any size of pledge will be very welcome.
Please help us by getting this message out to as many people as you can.
Let’s make the festival an escape from the negative things all around us and something positive that everyone will remember for a long time to come.
Any surplus income received after all costs have been deducted will be donated to local community projects and charity.
The Parish Council are acutely aware of the desperate plight of those residents of Ukraine who are caught up in this atrocious war and would want to be able to support those people in a meaningful way. The UK Government has set up a website where people can get further information, which is developing on a daily basis, and people and organisations can register their interest in offering housing support to refugee families.
We are also aware that the Council [CWAC] have already offered their support to refugees arriving in this country and we in turn would want to look out for opportunities which will allow our community to contribute to this effort as it becomes clearer how this might best happen.
There is information available on the CWAC website at https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/your-council/policies-and-performance/equality-and-diversity/Ukraine-Conflict.aspx and this is an excellent place to start.
If individuals in the parish need any additional assistance in finding out how they can help, please contact a member of the Parish Council and we will do all we can do to help.
