TRIBUTES have been paid to a for­mer town coun­cil chair­man who has died.

In a state­ment on its web­site the town coun­cil said it had learned of Mr Hutchcroft’s death with ‘great sad­ness’. ●● POYN­TON Play­ers are au­di­tion­ing for a pro­duc­tion of Cheshire Cats tonight (Wed­nes­day).

The funny and touch­ing play, based on real events, is about a group of women pre­par­ing for and walk­ing The Moon­walk Lon­don to raise funds for breast can­cer char­i­ties.
