Congratulations to the ‘Men’s A’ team from Goostrey Tennis Club having been promoted from 4th to 2nd division for the upcoming Winter League matches, following a highly successful 12 months of competing.
This marks a ‘first’ for Goostrey Tennis Club – their highest divisional placing in 23 years, since joining the South & Mid-Cheshire Tennis League in 1997.
Having won both last winter’s and this spring’s league, they were well-placed at the start of the recent summer season for League matches. As they then came second in the summer league, competing against top teams from Congleton, Cuddington, Holmes Chapel and Nantwich, they were promoted up two divisions.
Accolades over the past 12 months also include winning the Winter League Knock-out trophy. Team Captain Andrew Brierley said: “Goostrey Men’s A Team had another great year. We’ve got some strong players, and it’s been hugely rewarding – and great fun – to have won many matches at home and away, and seen the team promoted to our highest-ever league ranking. Thanks go to all the players, and also to those who support the Men’s B team in flying the flag for Goostrey Tennis Club in our county area League.”
Goostrey Men’s A team members include Andrew Brierley, Luke Brierley, Jason Lynch, Richard Saxton, Mike Saxton and Simon Barlow.
Besides League competitive tennis, Goostrey Tennis Club also offers social tennis on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons, with frequent American Tournaments for all ages and abilities, plus a regular programme of junior coaching. To find out more, visit the club’s website.

A case against AM Skip Hire (most will know from Brookbank Farm, Bridge Lane) has been adjourned to 20th November for trial.
The company is “accused of failing to take all reasonable measures to prevent a contravention by another person of regulation 12 of the Pollution Prevention and Control (England and Wales) Regulations” and that “it failed to ensure that there was a written description of the waste that would have allowed other persons to avoid a contravention of section 33 of the Act.”
Appearing before Cheshire Magistrates Court on 20th August in Crewe the company denied both charges and elected trial in the magistrates’ court.

Did you know Cheshire’s most beautiful wedding venue was on your doorstep? Residents living at that end of the village would be hugely affected by noise etc from such a venture. The Parish Council’s objection certainly makes interesting/disturbing reading: link to GPC objection
We didn’t – mostly because there’s no planning application or approval for an events venue in a previously quiet and dark corner of the village. That doesn’t seem to be holding Blackden Manor back though as an Open Weekend on 5th/6th October is planned in collaboration with BigChief Tipis. Link to Website: The Blackden Estate
Now called “Blackden Estate” nearby residents should be alarmed that events are being planned in tipis “anywhere on the estate”; we can’t imagine that they are easy to soundproof. So lookout if you live near the station, or even over the fields to Twemlow Green and along the A535 ( late night music, fireworks?). The website points to the Grade ll listed manor also being used for events; presumably planning permission /change of use will be required- meanwhile the only planning application in evidence is for a huge glass extension as a family kitchen (or for events in the future?).
I note there are noise complaints (from inside buildings, not tipis) for their sister site The Colony in Wilmslow (Altrincham Rd) on the CEC page for their retrospective planning application ……(link to planning page 19/3302).
I hope the Lovell at JBO isn’t about to be flooded with electromagnetic problems etc. The quantity of wiring, lights, sound systems etc so close to the World Heritage Grade l site could affect their work. It looks like being rather different to decades of quiet family home.
Station Road will be closed at the railway for 2 night shifts on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th Sept from 10pm to 6am.
Amberon “will be carrying out the installation of Traffic Management”.
