Football club needs drink dosh for leg up the league
Park keeps green flag flying
By Chris Young Congleton Town Football Club members are pinning hopes for league progress on a Cheshire East Council decision and the goodwill of their Booth Street ground neighbours.
Promotion depends on making enough money to buy more players and extended drinking hours at the clubhouse would bring in extra revenue.
Residents do not want to be kept awake by any late night noise but the club said it would be willing to take their concerns into account by altering plans if necessary.
The council’s Licensing Committee will decide tomorrow (Friday) whether or not to grant the club’s request for a general licence, which allows drinks to be served until 1am with kick-out time half an hour later.

Congleton Park is among a select band of parks and green spaces throughout the UK to retain its green flag this year.
The scheme, run by Keep Britain Tidy, recognises the country’s best green spaces.
Nearby Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve also retained its flag.
Pictured above in Congleton Park are Julie Bryne, Congleton Town Mayor Coun David Martin, Rotarians, members of the council’s Streetscape team, Carte House Day Care members, Friends of Congleton Park and volunteers, who all helped to get the part in tip top condition fo the green flag judges.

Axing of bus route follows ending of council’s subsidy
A bus route from Alsager to Scholar Green has been axed following Cheshire East Council’s decision to withdraw its funding.
D and G Bus, runs the 315 service which will cease from Saturday, 22nd October. It starts at Leicester Avenue and stops in Alsager, Linley, Lawton Gate and Kidsgrove before arriving at the Scholar Green terminus.
Routes provided by other companies — including school runs — could also be axed.
The withdrawal of the 315 service’s annual £30,988 subsidy forms part of a £500,000 cutback for bus transport. The council still spends more than £2.2m a year on public transport.
The service is used by 4,906 passengers a year and each passenger journey has a £6.31 subsidy.
Some bus companies have not yet decided whether to cut services. They include Bostocks, which runs a service from Bromley Farm to Eaton Bank; Ladyline, Congleton to Eaton Bank; Stanway Coaches, Mossley to Eaton Bank. All of these are school runs.
Also at risk is the Broken Cross (Macclesfield) to Gawsworth Primary School route, which receives an annual £18,410 for only 900 passenger journeys a year.
When the cuts were announced, Bakers Coaches, which operates the Broken Cross to Gawsworth service, said it would not be able to continue without subsidies, although they are yet to announce an end to the service.
The bus companies will inform parents at the schools that may be affected — Eaton Bank High School and Gawsworth Primary School — of any changes.
