Cheshire East Council is wishing all of its local athletes every success at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Disley’s Barney and Sarah Story and Colin Lynch, from Macclesfield, will be going for gold in cycling whilst Niki Birrell, from Knutsford, will compete in sailing.
Meanwhile, Richard Hennahane, who works for the Council’s adult services team as a senior information officer at Delamere House, Crewe, will be looking to be amongst the medals in archery.
The games begin on Wednesday (August 29).
Councillor Michael Jones, Leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “What a fantastic achievement for all five of these competitors to be involved in the London 2012 Paralympics.
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all the very best of luck for the games and Cheshire East is right behind them all as they go for gold.
“This Council only just last week outlined its commitment to supporting sporting talent with disabilities in the area with an investment in the Cheshire Academy in Crewe.
“We are very proud of all our athletes and we hope to celebrate in style when they bring home their medals. We’ll do something special for them.”
