●● A CONCERT venue has applied for a licence to sell alcohol through the week.
The Acoustic Lounge, on Park Lane, Poynton, wants to be able to sell booze from 12noon-11.30pm Monday to Thursday, until 12.30am on Friday and Saturday and until 11.30pm on Sunday.
Anyone who wants to make representations must do so in writing by August 19 by writing to The Licensing Section, Cheshire East Council, Municipal Buildings, Earle Street, Crewe, CW1 2BJ. ●● A CAMPAIGN launched to save Poynton Youth and Community Centre has been given a cash boost.
The building, which is based in the historic village school and dates back to 1838, urgently needs £25,000 for repairs.
Fundraisers have received a £4,000 windfall from Cheshire East Council after applying for £5,000 from the council’s community grant fund to update the building’s electrics and fire alarm system.
The grants committee advised the group to approach Poynton Town Council for further funding.
The centre, which is a charity held in trust for Poynton residents, is home to a range of groups, clubs, organisations and businesses to hold meetings and host events.
Campaigners are also organising events to raise money. They have arranged a charity concert at Poynton British Legion club on George’s Road West on Saturday, September 12 at 7.30pm.
It will feature a performance from Desert Wind, an Americana trio featuring Poynton’s Andy Liddi, and Radnor Band, led by Joe Beard, also a Poynton resident, who is a former member of the 1960s group The Purple Gang.
