THE weather was beautiful for my Civic Service on Sunday, 29th September at St Giles The Abbot Church where the Reverend Robert Ellis took the service.
Civic guests from Ashbourne, Uttoxeter, Leek and Stone and Councillors from Cheadle were in attendance together with family and friends and I would like to thank everyone for their good wishes that both myself and Kath received and to thank everyone who attended the Civic Service the day went very well.
On Tuesday 1st October I was invited to the nursery at Cheadle County Primary School, they have received a grant to improve and modernise the play equipment for the youngsters, which brought smiles to their faces.
I, like most of Cheadle's Councillors, visited the housing proposals for Thorley Drive, and I have had mixed reactions from the local residents.
On Wednesday 16th October I was accompanied by Councillor Ian Whitehouse and County Councillor Mark Deaville for the Annual General Meeting of The National Playing fields Association at St George`s Park, Burton-on-Trent.
After the meeting we went on a tour of the facilities.
It is an amazing place, but it not surprising given the amount of money that the F.A. has put into it.
Also on Wednesday 16th October Kath and I had the pleasure of being invited to Painsley Catholic College for a Celebration Evening for Year 11 2012/2013 pupils to receive their certificates.
This is a credit to staff and pupils together, a marvellous achievement.
I would also like to thank the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Ron Locker for standing in for me at Bishop Rawle School for the school council elections and for attending Cllr Steve Bull`s Civic Sunday at Ashbourne.
Councillor Ian and Kath Plant, town mayor and consort of Cheadle.
