We love to hear from readers and now it couldn't be easier to get in touch. We've created an email address especially for your letters: firstname.lastname@example.org
Time to protest
I read with interest the article with regard to the proposed incinerator in Northwich at the current Brunner Mond site. It didn't mention that there is also a proposal for an incinerator at Mid point 18, Middlewich, along with two other sites that have already been approved at Ince Marshes which will burn 600,00 tonnes of waste per year and Picow Road Farm, Weston Point which is set to burn 850,000 tonnes of waste per year.
CHain and the Middlewich community have been fighting against the plans submitted by Covanta for over 12 months. Should the application be successful it will have dreadful consequences on the landscape and traffic congestion in Middlewich. But what is most concerning is that the surrounding areas such as Holmes Chapel, Knutsford and even as far as Wilmslow will experience the waste fallout. What's worse, is that 90% of residents there don't even realise this.
If Cheshire residents don't stand up to stop this happening, the aspirational place Cheshire was once known for will be a thing of the past and will become known as the countrys waste disposal unit!
Please log onto www.anti-incinerator.org.uk and select the 'proposed sites' tab to object to all of these sites. A template of objection letters is available to download.
A gem of a restaurant
I eagerly await my copy of Cheshire Life each month and love reading about the restaurants that have been visited. However, there is a little gem of a restaurant in Crewe that few people appear to know about. Goomet is on Nantwich Road and offers contemporary Chinese and Japanese cuisine.
Just before Christmas 18 friends were celebrating my husbands 65th birthday and thoroughly enjoyed an evening experiencing a Teppanyaki banquet. The staff could not have been more welcoming and the food was absolutely delicious. Since the evening we have received numerous compliments on the choice of restaurant.
Forget the big wigs for once and give smaller restaurants a try. Im sure you will not be disappointed.
Pleasure in the post
My copy of Cheshire Life has arrived and I am writing to thank you and all concerned for the pleasure it gives me reading the articles, looking at the wonderful photographs, the crossword puzzle. In fact the whole magazine makes me feel happy.
Above all I want to thank you for your special offer as I could not have afforded to purchase Cheshire Life each month at the full cost. Now I am fortunate enough to get the magazine which I pass onto a neighbour. You may be glad to hear that my friend from Northwich has also taken up your offer. With many thanks.
