No need to feel deflated


in Neston town centre
A FREE to use public bicycle
pump has been installed in
Neston town centre.
It will provide cyclists with
a convenient pump for
deflated tyres. A permanent
fixture, it is bolted to the
ground and is suitable for
both types of tyre valve as
well as a handy gauge to
check pressure.
Cllr Martin Barker, member
of the Town Centre
Committee and councillor
for Cheshire West & Chester
Council said: This is an
original and quirky facility
for the Town Centre and
reinforces the town councils
commitment as a cycle
friendly town whilst also
promoting healthy living.
Town centre manager
Katy Pierce said: So many
cyclists visit Neston and its
great to be able to provide
such a facility for them. Neston has much to offer cyclists with a number of cycle friendly
businesses and we hope that the bike pump will encourage more cyclist in the area to stop in
Neston and see whats on offer.
Local cyclist and director of Pedalare Andy
Mills, who had already used the cycle pump,

said: We set up Neston Cycle Town to support

Cadets see vintage Spitfire


In 1940, during the Second World War, Britain was on the brink of invasion. An unlikely
ally, came to the rescue and helped our cause. The tiny Kingdom of Lesotho (formerly
Basutoland) presented Britain with 24 Spitfire fighter aircraft, enough to equip two RAF
Squadrons. No 72 (Basutoland) Squadron is one of the few Second World War squadrons
that are still in existence today.Lesothos actions were recognised in 2010, when a full scale
replica of a Spitfire,
mounted in a flying
position was given
to the countrys High
Commissioner as a mark
of thanks from Britain.
The Spitfire has been
constructed in the Spitfire
Heritage Trusts workshops
in Cornwall, and, recently
a couple of cadets from
2375 (Neston) Squadron
and their Commanding
Officer, Flt Lt Paul Thelwell
got the chance to get up
close and personal with
the finished project.

Cloudy2Clear Windows
Service With A Smile!
Its been a crazy
few months for
Cloudy2Clear Windows.
The company which
specialises in repairing
windows which are
steamed up, broken or
damaged by replacing
the panes not the
frames has grown
rapidly as homeowners
take advantage of their
services.
Managing Director
Alan Ball feels that its
all about service. Our
product is simple. If
your double glazing is
misted up we can replace
the glass at a fraction
of the cost of a new
window, in any type of
frame, and with a new
5 year guarantee. But
its not just about saving

people money, although


that obviously helps.
Many tradespeople have
struggled since last year
and I honestly feel that
during the good times a
minority perhaps didnt
focus on customer care
as much as they should
have done. We make sure
we turn up when we say
we will, do the job the
customer requires and
leave their house as clean
as a whistle. I often get
comments back from
customers on how they
really didnt expect that
sort of service which,
in a way, is very sad for
the service industry as a
whole.
Cloudy2Clear service
Neston, Parkgate, Little
Neston, Burton and Ness

& Alan is finding that


his approach is a major
factor in his success.
The truth is that its
not just the personal
satisfaction that I get
from doing a good job
but also it makes good
business sense. I get a
huge amount of business
from friends and family

of people Ive done


work for, which just
goes to show how much
a little bit of effort is
appreciated.
So, if your windows
are steamed up, broken
or damaged give Alan a
call for a free quotation
on 0800 61 21 118 and
hell be happy to help!

AN improved reception
space, new gym
area, redeveloped
wet changing area,
greater studio space
and a separate school
use access at Neston
Recreation Centre are
being called for by
Neston Town Council.
A report considered
at the councils
November meeting
identified these
improvements as
having been included
in a feasibility study conducted in 2014
covering sites managed by Brio Leisure for
Cheshire West & Chester Council. Presenting
the report, Cllr Mike Shipman said the clear
impression was that sources of funding
thought to have been identified last year
may not now be available and there may be
a need to look elsewhere.
Proposing a motion calling on CWaC to
fully fund the needed improvements, Cllr
Tracey Fleetwood said that the slow decline
of the local recreation centre vital for the
health and wellbeing of the local community
including schools was painful to see.
Urgent action was needed, and with a new
high school build starting in a few months
time improvements needed to be agreed
now.
The town council says that full
improvements to the local centre should be
given priority funding over spending in other
parts of the Cheshire West borough.
The unanimous resolution called on the
cabinet of Cheshire West & Chester Council
To endorse the improvements with better

reception space, new gym area, redeveloped


wet changing area, greater studio space and
a separate school use access and centre is
prioritised over investment in other centres.
To ensure that funding is in place for the
improvements at Neston Recreation and
that the work is carried out as soon as
possible
The council resolved to consider solutions
to the problems of parking at the High
School and Recreation centre site which will
occur during the building programme and
afterwards.
Brio Leisure is being asked to establish a
Neston Recreation Centre User Group, to
include representatives of the Town Council,
so that it may more easily consult with users
about current facilities and about further use
and development for the centre.
Cheshire West & Chester Council is being
asked to enter into discussion with Neston
High School, Brio Leisure and Neston
Nomads FC with a view to using part of the
Mostyn House S106 resource to part-fund
an additional all-weather pitch at the High
School site.

Heart of Irby Village

Dave and the team have always


supported the local community in
Irby and the surrounding areas, and
played a part in the life and soul of
the village and love being there,

Dave commented We recognised


Irby as a great place to stay and
grow in, we like the space we are in.
Weve taken on 2 apprentices and
making this significant investment
into the building can only improve it.
Our new showroom will be
completely unique for the Wirral,
and will revolutionise the experience
of buying a new bathroom for our
customers. We want nothing more
than people to come in and try them
out for themselves, even down to
taking your shoes off and feel the

take a shower if you are game, we
dont mind!
And with service and quality and
experience that is second to none,
your will be sure to find your slice of
Bathroom Bliss, right here in the heart
of Irby.

A You dont have to spend a vast


amount of money to purchase a
Geberit toilet. There are also less
expensive models in the range such
as the Geberit AquaClean 4000. This
compact loo seat is designed to
replace your existing loo seat and is
straightforward to install, as it fits on
the existing seat.

Q Should I be concerned about how


much water is used in spray-function
toilets?

A The Geberit AquaClean 4000 only


uses 400ml of water at each use, and
although this is more than a normal
loo, there are positive environmental
aspects to this choice, such as using
less toilet paper. Water, chemicals
and other raw materials are wasted
in the production of toilet paper, and
while its biodegradable, the process
still leaves chemical traces in our
water supply.

Council backs MPs call


for better train service
A call for a half-hourly service on the BidstonWrexham rail line through Neston by local MP
Justin Madders has received the enthusiastic
backing of Neston Town Council.
As well as seeking support from Arriva Trains Wales,
the Welsh Assembly and the Transport Department, Mr
Madders has drafted a public petition and has asked
the town council to promote it.
The council has instructed its transport working group
to ensure that the number of signatures is maximised.
The petition builds on the work the Town Council has
been doing to improve the woefully inadequate public
transport facility in Neston.
But there is also the urgent question of the huge
difference between ticket prices on the Chester
Liverpool line and those on the Borderlands line
through Neston. There seems no good reason why using Neston station should be so
much more expensive than using stations in Ellesmere Port and Chester when travelling
to the same destination.

Neston a step closer to being Fairtrade town


Progress is being made on achieving Fairtrade Town status for Neston. A Steering Group has
been set up as the second of five goals to gain the status.
The first goal achieved was for the Town Council to commit to buying only Fairtrade items
for refreshments for Neston Town Council meetings and events where these are available.
Fairtrade is about bringing the farmer and the shopper closer together and putting people at
the heart of trade.
Becoming a Fairtrade Town sends a powerful message about how a community wants trade
to work and directly benefits some of the worlds poorest farmers and workers through
increasing awareness and sales of Fairtrade.
Members of the Steering Group represent the
Local Council, Town Council, W.I., local churches,
local Trade Justice group and local business.
More members who support the aims of
Fairtrade are welcome to join the group. Contact
the Secretary at c.ellis@gmx.co.uk The Steering
Group are working towards achieving the other
three goals which involve Fairtrade products
being readily available in local shops, local
workplaces and community organisations using
Fairtrade products and awareness raising events
across the community.

Local driving instructor Kevin Birchall did
his bit for Children in Need by taking part
in the Big Learner Relay.
This nationwide event raised over 91,000 with teams of driving instructors and
their pupils travelling around Great Britain collecting for the charity. On top off
the leading car was a Big Learner Relay roof box, which was passed onto the next
instructor at the end of their 10 mile leg. Kevin was the leading car in the leg along the
A55 in North Wales.
He also carried out all his lessons for two weeks dressed as Pudsey around the
Neston area and raised cash by encouraging people to sponsor a spot on his car.

Neston Local December 2015 39

LETTER FROM WESTMINSTER

by Ellesmere Port and Neston MP Justin Madders


Justin Madders, the Labour MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, and Shadow Health Minister, gives
his thoughts on constituency changes and housing problems in this area.

Baffling plan to change


EP&N constituency

he issue of Parliamentary boundaries has come up again with the news that the
Government intend to push ahead with another boundary review over the next few
years. The intention is to reduce the number of MPs by 50 and to equalise the number
of electors in each constituency so that each is roughly the same size. Most constituencies
are roughly the same size at the moment but a degree of latitude and common sense
was applied so that natural boundaries were respected and communities kept together.
The current proposals are so prescriptive there is a risk that we end up with the ridiculous
Mersey Banks constituency again which split Ellesmere Port in half and contained a part of
the constituency in Widnes that you had to cross the river Mersey to get to. Neston was put
in with bits of the Wirral and the other half of Ellesmere Port was put in with Chester. If there
are changes then they wont come into force until the next General Election.
l I have been concerned by the Governments Housing and Planning Bill which will make it
easier for developers to get planning permissions without any local consultation, allowing
legitimate concerns about the impact on local infrastructure to be ignored. It will also
enable starter homes to be sold at a 20% discount for first time buyers under the age of
40 which recognises the enormous difficulty many young people have in getting on the
housing ladder. However, the flaw in the Governments plan is that this discount will be
available in homes up to a value of 250,000 which is well in excess of the average house
price in the constituency and so still unaffordable for many. These discounts will effectively
be paid for by removing the obligation on developers to build affordable housing, which
has mainly been for rent, recognising that not everyone is able to afford to buy a home of
their own. The other most significant aspect of the Bill is the introduction of the right to buy
for housing association tenants. Again this sounds like a good idea in theory but in practice
is going to be paid for by a levy on councils and has no guarantee that homes sold will be
replaced. My fear is that what we will see is a reduction in supply of homes that people can
afford to live in.
l As we approach Christmas it is a time to reflect on the past year and spare a thought for
those less fortunate than ourselves. I have met so many brilliant people in this constituency
over the last 12 months who give their time, their expertise and their support in a whole
series of ways that make life that little bit easier for many. So I say thank you to all those
carers,public servants, armed forces personnel & veterans, faith groups, charities and all
those volunteers who contribute to our society. Enjoy Christmas.
