Veg box scheme starts from the local 'Veg Men'

Our local Veg Men are now delivering veg boxes in Ashton Hayes and Mouldsworth. Here is what they say, "If you love fresh seasonal veg, full of natural goodness and free from chemical nastiness; this is the box for you. Our boxes are full of produce which has been grown sustainably and in tune with the seasons; what's more, operating on a local basis ensures that our veg makes it from field to fork in no time at all. Delivered to your door or dropped off at Ashton Shop (we'll donate £1 to the shop if you chose this option) ; the Veg Men box is good for you, good for the community and good for the environment."

Equity Housing appeals against planning decision

Equity Homes is appealing against CWAC's decision to refuse permission for 15 houses by methodist chapel. They are sending out letters around the village that claim that their application 14/01865/FUL received support from the Planning Officer but was thrown out by the Planning Committee. We encourage everyone to make comments to the Planning Inspectorate. Follow this link.


Tour of Britain whizzes through Ashton Hayes

Residents came out in force to applaud the Tour of Britain bike riders on Monday 8 September. The photo captures the lead riders. The entourage flashed through the village around 11:30am and sadly did not have time for a cuppa at the Pavilion Cafe.


Community cafe - slight change in timings

Due to a pre booking for the Pavilion on we will not be opening the café on Thursday 4/9 but will be open as usual on Friday morning and then as a `special` on Monday 8/9 when the Tour of Britain cycle race is happening .
