Improvements to Play areas: The Middlewich Road Playarea was refurbished in 2013 as a joint project with the Parish Council and
Cheshire East; it was reopened to great acclaim in July 2013 by the Cheshire East Mayor (Dorothy Flude) and has been well used
In 2015 we turned our attentions to the Elm Drive Playarea and its immediate surroundings. The equipment was
improved, and the playarea reopened in July.
Dane Meadow: A major project, jointly with the Parish Council and Cheshire East Council, was undertaken in 2014/15 to improve
the accessibility of the Dane Meadow - on the northwest side of the village. This provided better road access
and parking within the meadow for the disabled, a network of footpaths, two new ponds and a bird watching area so that this
lovely area can be enjoyed all year round. It was officially opened in May 2014 by Cllr Michael Jones and is proving an ever
more popular place.
Community Cinema: The Partnership encouraged a group of local volunteers to set up a Community Cinema, following a survey which revealed
this was a top wish by residents. The group worked very hard and in September 2014 put on their first film at the Vic Club;
since then there has been a film show almost every month, with capacity audiences every time.
Welcome Pack: Holmes Chapel, like
most local towns and villages is expanding in terms of houses and population. In order to help new residents find their feet
in the village, the Partnership put together a Welcome Pack, which provides information about local services, organisations, etc..
This is available in the Library and other key places in the village, or online here.
