Crewe Pride in the Park returns this Saturday!


Crewe Pride in the Park returns on Saturday 25 September, with the virtual event taking place from 2-6pm.

This year’s show will feature an eclectic mix of interviews, music and special guests.

Headline acts on the day include drag queen Cherry Valentine - of RuPaul’s Drag Race, who will be revealing more about her recent move to London, exciting projects in the pipeline, her involvement in music and charity work, and many more. Viewers on the day can also watch her exclusive new music video.

Doncaster-based band Bang Bang Romeo alongside singer Ben Tavill, 80s act The Wild Boys, and singer Claire Mooney will also be making an appearance. Viewers will see an interview with Jackie Weaver, a local LGBTQ+ Ally on the day as well.

Bentley Motors, the Crewe-based manufacturer of luxury cars, is proud and thrilled to be the main sponsor for this year’s event, while the Co-op and Crewe Town Council are also key sponsors.

This event follows months of Pride events across the country, offering the opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community to see out the summer with one final celebration.

Ahead of the event, residents who entered one of the Crewe Pride in the Park competitions for individuals of all ages will soon be receiving a series of prizes, including Pride goody bags, containing Crewe Pride in the Park merchandise and a gift card for the Co-op.

Residents can also still get their hands on free goody bags that are available to pick up now from the following Co-op store locations in the borough, which contain a selection of Crewe Pride in the Park merchandise and a £5 Co-op gift card. Individuals can request a goody bag at the below stores, on a first come first served basis:

  • Readesdale Ave, Crewe CW2 8QP
  • 1C Remer St, Crewe CW1 4LS
  • Rope Ln, Shavington, Crewe CW2 5DT
  • 28 London Rd, Holmes Chapel, Crewe CW4 7AJ
  • 216 Middlewich Road, Sandbach, CW11 3EJ
  • Cronkinson Farm, Nantwich CW5 7FY
  • Unit 1, The Gateway, Beswick Drive, Crewe, CW1 5NP

During the event, viewers will also be in with the chance to win Crewe Lyceum Theatre tickets to see ‘Deathdrop’ – a murder mystery play featuring RuPaul US drag legends Willam, Ra’Jah O’Hara and UK star Vinegar Strokes. Viewers on the day will also receive a promotional code to book tickets for this play at a reduced rate.

Councillor Sam Corcoran, leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “There’s so much for viewers to look forward to at our virtual Pride in the Park event, the full line-up offers an exciting experience for all who attend.”

“It’s important that the voices of our LGBTQ+ community are heard, and that they feel represented and equal. Hosting this event is just one way we’re working towards our ambition for a fair, open and green borough, where individuality and diversity is celebrated.”

“There’s a lot to look forward to at Saturday’s event, so I’d urge everyone to set a date for their diary and join us from 2pm.”

Councillor Marilyn Houston, member champion for equality, diversity and inclusion, said: “By hosting this event virtually once again, individuals from across Cheshire East and beyond will be able to tune into the event on the day, and with some fantastic guests announced – you won’t want to miss it!”.

“We’re thrilled to be joined by some of this year’s biggest names, including Cherry Valentine of RuPaul’s Drag Race and more.”

“Summer may be coming to an end but we’re seeing out the Pride celebrations in style, with this event, which is hugely important in the Cheshire East calendar. We’d encourage individuals of all ages to unite and show our support for the LGBTQ+ community in Cheshire East by tuning in on the day.”

Residents can join the event on the day on the Cheshire East Virtual Pride YouTube channel, and stay updated in the run up to the event on the Pride in the Park Facebook Page.

Cheshire East Council warns not to relax as Covid-19 cases still high


Cheshire East Council is reminding residents that Covid-19 remains a significant risk to public health and to continue with Covid safe behaviours of ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’.

Latest local Covid-19 data shows there have been 361 positive cases per 100,000 in Cheshire East in the week up to 15 September. This is significantly above the average for England of 303 per 100,000 of population.

Set against this backdrop of high local cases, the council is advising residents to follow the latest advice from Public Health England to get vaccinated, to get tested regularly and to wear a mask in busy or crowded places such as supermarkets and public transport.

Councillor Jill Rhodes, Cheshire East Council adults and health committee chair, said: “Unfortunately we are still seeing to a worrying level of positive case numbers.

“The public has been asked to take personal responsibility for wearing a mask, but we would ask them to continue to wear them, especially in shops and enclosed spaces.

“It is in all our hands now to keep life moving and play a positive part in containing the spread of the virus.’

Professor Rod Thomson, public health consultant at Cheshire East Council, said: “With a significant number of positive cases now, it’s vital residents continue to take precautions and remain Covid-aware.

“Just as Covid-19 cases are still higher than we would like, public face covering wearing seems to be significantly down.

“Covid cases are rising not only among the young, 35 per cent of all cases are in the 10-19 age group, but we are also seeing a strong rise in over-40’s cases too, which in turn affects hospitalisation rates, which have also increased.

“The best advice then remains to get fully vaccinated as soon as you can as this not only protects yourself but also diminishes the virus’s ability to spread. This is especially important for vulnerable people who are to be offered a Covid-19 booster vaccine (from 6 months after their second doses).”

The booster vaccination programme will be rolled out to the same priority groups as previously. This means care home residents, health and social care workers, people aged over 50, those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe Covid-19, adult carers, and adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals will be prioritised.

Professor Thomson continues to say: “If you have Covid-19 symptoms, then self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test. If you have no symptoms, please continue to test regularly with rapid Lateral Flow Tests which are available for free at local test sites or can be delivered direct to your home.

“We would also strongly advise people to do the things we already know help stop the spread of the virus. This means if you test positive, you won’t be able to enjoy all those things we have all missed doing such as joining in with family celebrations, going on holiday, or going to sporting or music events.”

The council has this week organised for a Covid-19 and winter wellbeing leaflet to be delivered to every household and business in the borough to reinforce key Covid-19 safety messages and information to help residents stay safe throughout the colder and wetter winter months.

Supported by local chambers of commerce, businesses in the borough will also be able to order an innovative Covid-19 business information toolkit to help them restart their business and help keep staff and customers as safe as possible. Business toolkits can be ordered on the council’s webpage at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/covid19-business

To book or order a PCR test visit www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test.

For full information on where to get tested or pick up home testing kits visit: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/covid-testing or to order them to be delivered to your home visit www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests.

We Need Your Feedback - Local Family Bowls Day


Good afternoon,
We are thinking of running a family bowls day next spring in Weston and Haslington to involve local young people into a good hobby. This is in an aim to help local young people to gain healthy interests but also to reduce anti-social behaviour in the local area.
We need to know if our local families would support these sessions. The sport is fairly cheap to get involved with and most clubs have some spare equipment that we could use to get young people involved. We could also look into getting some additional funding to support this if we had the support for it to go ahead.
Please send your feedback in a reply to this or via our Haslington Police Facebook page.
Thank you for your time.
Kind regards,
PCSO Lizzie Jolley 22582
