4:48pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014

I AM proud that our hospital is based in my ward. For years my father worked as a hospital porter and relied on buses to get to there.

Positivity needed

Crewe Guardian: Positivity needed

4:38pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014

IT was refreshing to see a letter from someone who is proud to live in Crewe and sees the positives. Like Dee Hunt, I was not born in Crewe, but have lived here for 10 years. Yes, there are plenty of areas which need improving, and there are times when I despair.

Bold welcome

Crewe Guardian: Bold welcome

4:33pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014

READING the letters in the Guardian prompted me to respond. Did any writers read the full article? It was Cheshire East Council who designed the Welcome to Crewe signs and place them in all the wrong places not Crewe town council.

Get real over HS2

Crewe Guardian: I'm tired of HS2 criticism

12:45pm Tuesday 1st April 2014

IN response to Dr Adrian Heald’s letter in the Guardian, March 20 might I suggest that he comes down out of the clouds and rejoins the real world and stops thinking like a politician?

Place bets on our scheme

Crewe Guardian: Horse racing

As a recent patient of Leighton Hospital A&E major clinic, thank all the team staff who treated me and kept my family informed.

Take care walking on Queensway

Crewe Guardian: Do something about streets

4:32pm Monday 17th March 2014

I was most interested to read Howard Curran’s letter about his father’s riddle, Guardian, March 6 and more importantly the disgraceful state of the pavements in Crewe.

Glad 880 homes plan rejected

Crewe Guardian: Whole thing is s shambles

4:28pm Monday 17th March 2014

We're not all dog lovers

Crewe Guardian: Sid the dog

No decision on sites

Crewe Guardian: Clr Michael Jones

4:16pm Thursday 6th March 2014

When I was a small boy, I lived in a small terraced house on Wistaston Road. Television was not on the scene and even radio was a bit primitive.

Challenge politicians

Crewe Guardian: I'm tired of HS2 criticism

4:15pm Thursday 6th March 2014

Regarding the letter ‘Stop moaning about HS2’, February 27, was surprising, in my view. Perhaps Mr Curran has a lot of faith in our politicians.

Why do we only hear from Labour?

Crewe Guardian: Labour Party Drop-in

11:51am Thursday 6th February 2014

NOT a week seems to pass without a letter being published in the Guardian from Dr Adrian Heald, the Labour party candidate for Crewe.

Why not be a councillor?

Crewe Guardian: Cornwall election results: Frantic deal making as vote throws up a few surprises

11:50am Thursday 6th February 2014

MANY residents will know the importance of organising their opposition to speculative planning applications, but these campaigns could have been more effective if the structures were in place before the need arose.

Good news – but it’s bland

Crewe Guardian: Good news – but it’s bland

11:48am Thursday 6th February 2014

Banks must face change

Crewe Guardian: Gang fail in bid to steal cash machine

5:31pm Thursday 30th January 2014

THE experience of many bank customers is of poor service and high charges funding the banks’ plush office suites in our city centres. Ed Miliband said last week that for an industry that calls itself a ‘service’, it has been a poor servant of the real economy.

Respecting the memorial

Devil is in the detail

2:09pm Thursday 16th January 2014

What is a ‘rail hub’ (Guardian, January 9) and how is it different from the existing Crewe Station?

Hub proposal is vague

2:09pm Thursday 16th January 2014

Regarding the article ‘Build Rail Hub in Town’, Guardian, January 9, what part of ‘in town’ does Cheshire East Council not understand?

Loan ban is spot on

3:23pm Thursday 12th December 2013

CHESHIRE East Council leader Michael Jones is spot on in welcoming new laws that will see the cost of payday loans capped.

Not good for reputations

3:23pm Thursday 12th December 2013

This Government’s proposed pay rise for MPs does no good for the reputation of Parliament As the person who wishes to be the Labour MP for Crewe and Nantwich after the next General Election, I think the proposal that MPs receive an 11 per cent pay rise is a national outrage and an obscene insult to working people who have bourne the brunt of the worldwide recession.

Fee for taking away waste?

1:30pm Wednesday 27th November 2013

EAST Cheshire failed to consult us on the premature stopping of the green waste collection bins this year, therefore putting council taxpayers to further inconvenience, particularly at this moment when leaves are still falling.

Germans do it better

1:17pm Thursday 21st November 2013

IT MUST be said that the summer garden waste collection is a boon to thousands of Cheshire East residents who no longer have to load up car boots, drive to a recycling centre and clean out the insects on return.

Bins emptied as leaves fall

1:17pm Thursday 21st November 2013

OUR green bins have been emptied today for the last time for 18 weeks, the very day on which the leaves have begun to fall in earnest.

Tip trips will add to pollution

1:16pm Thursday 21st November 2013

SAM Youd wrote a splendid diatribe a while back on the iniquity and general daftness of stopping the green bin collections on November 18.

A subtle plan

12:49pm Thursday 21st November 2013

MANY people have already paid their council tax , under the impression that green waste would be collected as in the past so Cheshire East Council could be in breach of contract in reducing collections.

Plan date?
