Information about the South Cheshire village of Hankelow

On this page:-

General Information.

The environment is Hankelow is very important to many residents. I have added a link on the Village Information page, where you can find out more about the Environment Agency and how to report any issues which may occur.

A lorry crash blocked the A529 between Adderly and market Drayton for a while yesterday (January 27th).

Hankelow dressage rider Izzy Maughan has been selected for the British Dressage Youth National Academy 2022.

There is a confirmed Avian Flu outbreak in Warmingham. The surveillance zone stretches south as far as Wybunbury.

Tickets are still on sale for the Audlem pantomime, "Robin Hood", which will take place from February 2nd to February 5th, and also for the ADCA Grand Dinner Dance on Saturday March 26th.

Nantwich News are reporting a huge planning backlog at Cheshire East, which will take months to clear.

The discussion on gritting continues, as councellors are told not to use ward budgets for gritting.

Many villagers have been wondering about the activities at the south end of the village, near Mill Lane. Now a planning application has been posted on the Cheshire East planning website for an agricultural building and an associated track from the A529.

Keep an eye on AOL and Nantwich News for 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.
