●● Cheshire East Council has refused to answer any further questions relating to Core Fit’s contract with the council. Christina Webb: How can the council refuse to answer questions about this? Is it not Council Tax paid by the people of Cheshire East which is paying for this contract? Councillors – and constituents – need to remember we can vote them out at the next election. Mark Tilsley: Why don’t Cheshire East want a more open, inclusive and
transparent organisation? ●● Cheshire East is considering proposals to build a cinema on one of two car parks in Macclesfield. Lisa Johnson: We need decent shops before a cinema!!! Joanne Griffin: Heard it all before. Ian Gerrard: We have a perfectly good cinema, what Macc doesn’t need is a great huge soulless multiplex charging the earth. Macc should aim higher! Kris Cleaver: Good! We need a revamp! The only reason why things take so long to do in this town is because there’s too many dinosaurs in this town who don’t like change. The thing is, it will all happen because it will make the town more revenue so it’s inevitable that it’s going to happen. Amy Wood: We have a cinema and it’s ace! Russ Machin: Too much negativity! Macc’s got loads to offer! Cinema, Treacle market, brilliant pubs, a theatre, fantastic parks, loads of free live music, restaurants galore! The list is endless! Sharon Pollard: The multiplexes are great in cities, even then overpriced and dead most of the time because people don’t want to pay those prices all the time, we are lucky that we have a choice. Val Pownall: Good! Can’t happen soon enough! I can’t wait! Jenny Louise Bayley: Yes please, good God we need something to draw people in. Ceiran Day: People can’t be serious in saying that Macc has loads to offer. The only things it has are barbers, hairdressers charity shops and plenty of Indian restaurants. Sharon Pollard: A cinema with 10 screens is a little novelty which people will get fed up with after a while when they realise how expensive it is, we just need a full town centre, it can be done with a little help, or we engineer a situation and then tell people it’s a national problem. Katie Jane Beresford: I think it would be really good if there was a proper cinema in Macc. Saves us spending money on the train to get to Stockport or Manchester and could go to the later showings without having to worry about getting the last train.
