Ramillies Estate Newsletter No. 23
Some important news plus some reminders about offers and events.
On Saturday 6th October, there was an attempted mugging on Monmouth Road. A 65 year old man walking home from Tesco at around 10pm was accosted by 2 hoodies who demanded his wallet and phone. He managed to fend them off but was left with a black eye and cuts requiring stitches but thankfully is otherwise fine. Please be vigilant if walking late at night and at least give anyone suspicious a wide berth. This is extremely rare here but nevertheless is concerning.
The Methodist Church have started up a new Youth Group called Rock Solid on alternate Tuesdays at Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church from 7.15 pm - 8.30 pm for school years 6 to 8 (ages 10 to 14). It involves fun, games, snacks and discussion and is £1 per session.
Cheadle Hulme Partnership
Stockport Council are trying to save around £24m over the next two years and have proposed that the district and local centres service provided by the Council ends.
The proposal is that a town centre manager and senior project officer for the town centre would remain, but there wouldn't be staff to support the district and local centres. The partnership meetings are facilitated by the Council but driven by members of the community, so hopefully will continue - I'll update with any more news when it's known.
Despite the news about the changes to parking in the precinct, it seems to be becoming more of a problem recently on the Estate with more cars parked on our roads during the day and there have been a number of occasions where even small delivery vans have struggled to get through. Please get in touch if this is causing problems on your road.
Just a reminder about the Stockport Council scheme to help insulate our homes. You could get free cavity wall and loft insulation, usually costing up to £700. Applications need to be in by 30th November 2012. You can arrange a free survey on the website.
With the nights drawing in and unfortunately the clocks going back in just 2 weeks' time, now is a good time to make sure that gate and shed locks are secure and any security lights are working properly.
Please let me know of any news or items to include on the site or in the newsletter.
