General Information.

It seems Rachel Bailey will be looking into why the grey bins weren't emptied on Monday in the area. Apparently you can report missed bin collections here, but based on comments on the AOL chatbox it may not be effective.

Last night's Pub Quiz at the White Lion was another great success, thanks to question master Ian Jones and the excellent White Lion staff, who put on a very tasty "Stag Bol" buffet. The next quiz on Monday June 6th will be Jubilee themed, so dig out your red.white and blue and book now!

Cheshire East Council are continuing to roll out £19.9M council in tax energy rebates and they urge eligible taxpayers to apply.

There will be another live music session in the White Lion on Sunday. They say "This Sunday we're lucky to have our own local girl from Buerton, @gemmarosesings. Gemma brings us an eclectic mix of easy listening music from the 60's to date, with old favourites and modern party tunes. 7-9 pm this Sunday 29th."

There are a couple of notices on AOL about shop opening times, one about Jubilee bank holiday opening hours at Boots, and the other about summer holiday closure of Llovely and the Post Office. AOL also have a notice about Ofgem scam emails.

A Market Drayton van driver has been jailed for seven years after killing a 23-year-old by running a red light on a pedestrian crossing in Crewe.

Missing cat, Jess

Missing Cat

Matt Holden tells us "Our cat Jess has been missing for just over a week. She is 7 years old and has 4 distinctive white paws.
"We live in Wellfield Way and she normally heads off into the fields towards Hall lane.
"She is chipped but does not have a collar. She may have snuck into someone’s shed or outhouse and would appreciate it if people could check."
If you see her please send us an email and we'll let Matt know.

Information on the White Lion can be found here.
Keep an eye on AOL and Nantwich News for more local information.
Local roadworks information can be found on the website.
Residents who like to walk across the Weaver bridges in Hankelow may want to check the river water level if the weather has been bad.
