●● MUM’S trib­ute af­ter the loss of lit­tle El­lie, six (Ex­press, Jan­uary 13 and web­site) Julie Agar: So sorry for the loss of your beau­ti­ful daugh­ter. I was a health care as­sis­tant on the chil­dren’s ward and spent many a day/night car­ing for El­lie. RIP El­lie, an amaz­ing lit­tle princess. He­len Davies: Beau­ti­ful, cheeky girl. Megan misses her class­mate and my heart goes out to you all. I hope you all find the strength you will need. Lots of love. ●● PRIDE for three veter­ans pre­sented with France’s top mil­i­tary hon­our (web­site) Stephen Hancock: Well de­served! Ed Han­ley: Cheers lads. Sam Brown: Thanks a lot, boys ●● PO­LICE close Cat and Fid­dle ahead of heavy snow (web­site, Jan­uary 13)

She­lagh Hill: They may have put up road closed signs on Bux­ton Road, Mac­cles­field, but as usual peo­ple just ig­nore it. When driv­ing from my house ear­lier I had to ne­go­ti­ate a car trans­porter, a ce­ment wagon and huge lor­ries all us­ing the Old Bux­ton Road, which is not suit­able for large ve­hi­cles. Tracy Newn­ham: It is down to black ice on the road. Wa­ter is run­ning off the moors and is wash­ing away any­thing the grit­ters are putting down. Steph Cleaver: Cheshire po­lice have posted this twice and asked peo­ple not to ig­nore it. It’s been shared lots, if peo­ple chose to go up there then they are just stupid. Thanks for the warn­ings Cheshire po­lice and Macc Ex­press. Jane Sut­cliffe: Why as a pre­cau­tion? When it has to close due to snow peo­ple will ig­nore the signs. Cry wolf comes to mind... Paul Pierce: For God’s sake how the hell do they think we man­aged years ago when we used to get tre­ble the amount of snow? They’d be telling us to stay at home next due to an inch of snow. ●● IVY Bank Pri­mary School is set to cel­e­brate its 50th an­niver­sary this sum­mer (web­site) Caitlin Bar­low: I loved this school. I was there for nine years and it has played a big part in my life. I never wanted to leave if I could I would go back to­mor­row. It’s such an amaz­ing school. El­lie Steele: Miss this school so, so bad. If only I could come back and see all the amaz­ing teach­ers. Ka­t­rina Jordi Kimp­ton: I was at this school un­til Septem­ber 2004. I loved the school, didn’t want to leave. ●● PAR­A­LYMPIC medal­list Sarah Storey drafted in to make Mac­cles­field more cy­cle-friendly (web­site) John Wil­liams If all cy­clists used the cy­cle lanes that would be a start – from Manch­ester Road past Tyther­ing­ton High School the ma­jor­ity just ig­nore it. Mark Bai­ley: They don’t use them near the air­port tun­nels ei­ther, John, and it is a mas­sive new pur­pose-built one. John Wil­liams: And teach them to stop wear­ing dark clothes – it should be the law to wear high-viz, es­pe­cially in win­ter. Mark Bai­ley: And ride two/three be­side each other! Which would make cy­cle lanes point­less any­way. One cy­cle lane in ev­ery route away from Alder­ley Park please – es­pe­cially Alder­ley to Mac­cles­field Road. John McKie: Teach cy­clists what traf­fic lights are for, and to use lights when it’s dark, and the dif­fer­ence be­tween road and foot­path. I got knocked down walk­ing out of my own shop. Pauline Har­ris: I got a mouth­ful from a guy rid­ing his bike on the pave­ment, re­fused to move out of the way for him and he let rip. ●● JAS­MINE Park pav­il­ion to re­open af­ter years of wait­ing (web­site) Si­mon Old­field: Been such a long time wait­ing for area. The car park closed but could be used ease traf­fic con­ges­tion on Whirley Road when events on at church hall cause may­hem – dou­bleparked cars etc. ●● MAC­CLES­FIELD coun­cil op­pos­ing plans for hous­ing in the green­belt on Fence Av­enue, which would al­low a new King’s School to be built (Mac­cles­field, Jan­uary 13 and web­site) Sue Alexan­der: As Cheshire East still doesn’t have a lo­cal plan can it ob­ject? Note the house build­ing in Wilm­slow on green­belt. Richard James Pat­tie: Well blow me down! The coun­cil, mak­ing a sen­si­ble choice! Good news! An­drew Dol­lam­ore: I re­ally hope all its ap­pli­ca­tions for green­belt de­vel­op­ment are re­jected. If this is ap­proved then it’s open sea­son for build­ing on green belt in Mac­cles­field. Any­one in and around the area who en­joys the green­belt should be very con­cerned and op­pose it via the plan­ning por­tal. Kings should be in­vest­ing in its ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­ture and stop try­ing to jus­tify green­belt de­vel­op­ment that no-one wants. Christina Webb: But will it make any dif­fer­ence when it comes to Cheshire East Coun­cil mak­ing the fi­nal de­ci­sion? It is up to all of us to make a stand against a po­ten­tially atro­cious de­ci­sion. Ge­off Ma­son: So it should. This was green­belt, green­belt is green­belt. If this hap­pens houses will be built. And the de­sign of the school was ex­tremely bor­ing. Tre­for John Hey­wood: I could never un­der­stand the need for all this in the first place. Paul ‘Wakey’ Wake­field: You have less than a week to do some­thing. Get on the Cheshire East Coun­cil’s web­site and make your com­ments there to stop the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion be­com­ing re­al­ity. Talk­ing about it here is not tak­ing ac­tion to stop it.
