Sooner the better for electric trains plans: watchdog
The region’s rail watchdog has given a “guarded welcome” to electrification schemes (conversion from diesel to electric power) in the North West and the promise of additional train carriages announced by the Government.
Transport minister Philip Hammond announced that the railway electrification programme in North West England for the routes between Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Blackpool, was to go ahead, a move TravelWatch NorthWest said was “welcome news” fo passengers in the region.
Advertisers should note the “Chronicle” deadlines as the Christmas period approaches
They are as follows:
“The sooner it happens the better,” said the organisation in a statement.
But the statement added “In the meantime, rail travel continues to grow in the North West and there is a desperate need to fo additional carriages to relieve overcrowding especially into and out of the major conurbations.” Although 2100 new trains have been promised for the country as a whole, most of these will go to London and the South East.
TravelWatch NorthWest chairman Chris Dale said: “It has been reported that there are more overcrowded trains in ou region than anywhere else in the UK and potential passengers are being discouraged from travelling at busy times because of overcrowding.
“We strongly urge that the North West benefits from these new trains to as great an extent as possible and as soon as possible.”

Swish new way to help save planet
East Cheshire NHS Trust staf and members of the public got a whole new wardrobe courtesy o the first “swishing” party hosted by East Cheshire NHS Trust at Macclesfield District General Hospital.
The event raised £400 fo the trust’s digital mammography appeal via MAST, and Stockport Women’s Centre.
Swishing involves a group o fashion hungry women all looking to exchange outfits on a guiltfree shopping spree, raise money for charity, catch up with friends, meet new people and contribute towards saving the planet. ‘We can drink as much as we like’ brazen pub thieves tell the landlord
Burglars targeted the Lord Mountbatten Pub on Mill Street.
By Tom Byrne Cheeky thieves tried to convince a Congleton ub landlord that they had een given permission to drink as much as they liked while they carried out a burglary last Wednesday.
The two men broke in through the back door of the Lord Mountbatten on Mill Street and searched all the rooms including the living area upstairs before taking £80 from the till.
Landlord Mike Pickering said that when he discovered the intruders, one of them said in an Irish accent: “I was told we could have as much drink as we wanted by the person upstairs.”
Mr Pickering, who was preparing to open the pub in the afternoon, said: “I came in and two men were behind the bar.
“One ran away straight away but the other one stood there brazen and told me that the guy upstairs said he could drink everything he liked.
“I told him I was the guy upstairs and that we didn’t give out free drinks. I then tried to usher him out of the door and I was glad to get him out because he was a big stocky lad.
“I don’t keep money in the till overnight anyway so they only took £80, which I didn’t realise
Firms will run domestic abuse support services
Victims of domestic abuse should benefit from greater support nder proposals unveiled by Cheshire East Council’s Supporting People programme — as long as a private company bids to run the service.
Help for women and children in their homes will be increased, while services will be extended to male victims for the first time, the council said.
The improvements have been outlined as part of a tender opportunity for domestic abuse services.
The Supporting People rogramme is a partnership of Cheshire East Council, Central and Eastern Cheshire Primary Care Trust and the Probation Service. Expressions of interest are now eing invited from providers to run services to deliver safety and recovery for victims of domestic abuse, either in their homes or in refuge accommodation.
The services will run from April.
Coun Roland Domleo, Cabinet member with responsibility for adult services, said: “Supporting victims of domestic abuse is a strong priority for Cheshire East Council and forms part of our commitment to improve life opportunities and health for all residents.
“Research shows that effective intervention by all agencies is vital to making a difference to the lives of victims and their families.
“The tender process has offered a timely opportunity to develop and expand the specialist support we provide to this extremely vulnerable group.
“Our focus will continue to be on early intervention, to halt the escalation of abuse and prevent an increase in cases of more serious abuse.”
Refuge accommodation for women and their children in the Cheshire East area and beyond will continue to be provided in Crewe and Macclesfield under the new contract.
Human trafficking a ‘heinous crime’
The Government is committed to tackling the “heinous crime” of human trafficking, Fiona Bruce, MP for Congleton, has been told in Parliament.
Damian Green, immigration minister, answering a Parliamentary question from the MP, said the Government kept
“under constant review” the legislative framework on human trafficking.
“Our legislation is compliant with both the Palermo Protocol and the Council of Europe convention on action against trafficking in human beings,” he said.
(“Chronicle” photo. 4845/10).
The offenders made off towards Rope Walk.
Insp Mark Gammage, head of neighbourhood policing for the Congleton area, has told licensees to be alert to this type of crime: “There have been a few similar crimes in the area and the signs are that it’s this team targeting various pubs.
“I’d just say to people to make sure their premises are secure and to be vigilant against any cock and bull stories like this one.
“Remember that any accommodation above a pub is a landlord’s home as well as their business. So they have every right to challenge somebody and ask what they’re doing.
The incident happened between 3.10pm and 3.55pm on 24th November.
ID fraud Congleton landlords have been warned to watch out after a girl used her elder sister’s ID to try and get into a pub.
Congleton town Pub Watch held its latest meeting this week and a report was received from a licensee about an incident at their premises.
Door staff asked a young person who wanted to enter for identification, and a driving licence was offered as proof of age.
It turned out that the licence was genuine — it just belonged to a sister of the young woman in question.
The document was confiscated and later returned to its rightful owner, who was advised of the potentially serious consequences of allowing their ID documents to be used in this way.
The Pub Watch Committee warned other landlords to be vigilant.
Challenge 21 is in operation in all the pubs and clubs who are members of Pub Watch.

FIRST CONGLETON PROBUS LADIES’ CLUB
How many readers have walked along the road past the vicarage at Gawsworth looking forward to some refreshment at the Harrington Arms, possibly in the gloaming of an early autumn evening, when the light is faded and the drying leaves crackle quietly overhead?
Alone with your own thoughts, you suddenly sense you are not alone — somebody is walking beside you. A woman in green.
In fact, she is the ghost of Mary Fitton!
Anne Metcalf and Don Roach gave a gripping, wide ranging and well researched talk to the Probus Club entitled “Wizards, white ladies and worms”.
How little we are aware of the layers of belief, superstition and strange practices on which the modern world view is constructed.
Members heard of the Green Man, a symbol of life across Europe from Istanbul to Barthomley, Knutsford, Nantwich, Bramhall: one could go on. What about the Cheshire Cat, grinning at Norton Priory, or the popular wizard at Alderley?
On behalf of members, Celia Crew thanked Mrs Metcalf for the lively delivery of her talk and Mr Roach for the excellent photographs that accompanied it.
The next meeting of First Congleton Probus Ladies’ Club takes place on Friday, 10th December, at Astbury Village Hall. Meet at noon for lunch at 12.30pm. This event replaces the meeting scheduled in the annual programme.
