●● TYTHER­ING­TON School’s Per­form­ing Arts Depart­ment will en­ter­tain au­di­ences with the clas­sic gang­ster story Bugsy Malone, set in New York in the Roar­ing Twen­ties.

Ac­tors and mu­si­cians from Year 7 to Sixth Form will take part in the pro­duc­tion af­ter an ‘over­whelm­ing’ num­ber of stu­dents au­di­tioned for the roles in Jan­uary.

Year 7 stu­dent Lewis Peal will play the ti­tle role of Bugsy, while Lily Hill will play as­pir­ing singer Blousey Brown and Ella Whar­ton will take on the role of flir­ta­tious chanteuse Tal­lu­lah.

Both girls are also in Year 7 and will act along­side a host of tal­ented older stu­dents.

Re­hearsals are un­der­way for the hotly an­tic­i­pated per­for­mance which school staff say is set to be ‘a smash’.

Shows take place on Mon­day, July 6, Tues­day, July 7, Wed­nes­day, July 8 and Fri­day, July 10.

Bugsy Malone fol­lows the school’s sell-out suc­cess of Lit­tle Shop of Hor­rors last Oc­to­ber. ●● THE Tyther­ing­ton Club is putting on a sum­mer fair on Satur­day, July 25 from 11am to 5pm.

En­try is free and in­cludes a fun­fair, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, food and drink, fam­ily games, mu­sic, and a raf­fle.

There will be a va­ri­ety of stalls and a dis­play arena show­cas­ing lo­cal tal­ent. ●● A PLAN­NING ap­pli­ca­tion from SHS Es­tates to Cheshire East Coun­cil to build a one-and-a-half storey de­tached dwelling at Tyther­ing­ton Old Hall has been with­drawn af­ter ob­jec­tions in­clud­ing that it would not en­hance the her­itage as­set and would re­strict light to the south west of the prop­erty at 16 Turn­berry Close.

Plans have been sub­mit­ted to the coun­cil for a car port with a flat felt roof and fenc­ing pan­els to both sides at 27 Harvest Road.
