Town Mayor to lead Civic Parade and Service this Sunday

Knutsfordians are being encouraged to come out to see their new Mayor Cllr Andrew Malloy during his Civic Sunday parade this week. The parade that starts assembles at 1.15pm and sets off at 1.20pm on Sunday 23rd June.  It will start from King Street car park before working its way along King St, Minshull St, Princess St, Church Hill, back across King Street Car park and across the Moor to St Cross Church where the Civic Service will take place led by Revd Paul Deakin.

The Parade will be led by the 2056 (Knutsford) Squadron ATC marching band and include dignitaries and Mayors from Town and Parish Councils across Cheshire as well as other uniformed groups.

Town Mayor Cllr Andrew Malloy said: “The Civic Sunday parade and service is something of a welcome to the new Mayor, and an opportunity for you all to meet your new Mayor.  I would be delighted if as many of you that attended Mayor Making, could also attend the service and parade, and show me your support as you have done many times before.

It would be nice to meet many of you face to face, a change from many of our regular chats on social media.

If you are not able to attend the service, perhaps you could support the parade, by helping line the streets and give us all a cheer as we walk past, that would be truly lovely.

As my year will be about supporting youth and activity/sport, it would be great to see many youngsters, and local sporting clubs out too.

I look forward to seeing you on 23rd June.”

Green-fingered Knutsford residents showed even the smallest of gardens can impress the judges during Knutsford Town Council’s front garden competition.

All shapes and sizes of green spaces were entered into community contest, judged by the Mayor of Knutsford, Cllr Peter Coan, Bijal Mistry, manager of Fryer’s Garden Centre and Yvonne Bancroft, chair of Knutsford in Bloom.

With a cherry tree in full fruit, beautiful hanging baskets, lighting, bird feeders and baths and a small seating area, judges were in complete agreement that Peter Holt’s garden in Middle Walk was the winning entry.

A strong second place went to Susan Edwards and Richard Ankers in Lilac Avenue who had created a modern design with slate and wooden sleepers, impressing judges with their colour schemes, design, bird feeders and range of planting which was buzzing with bees.

Gina Cross won third place with her spectacular hanging baskets and potted displays outside her first floor flat in Middle Walk which, alongside Peter’s garden, make a wonderful floral walk down Middle Walk to the Moor.

Cllr Pete Coan said, ‘’It is absolutely wonderful that the local residents take such a pride in making Knutsford look lovely and there were so many gardens to judge, it was difficult to choose a winner.  however, pride of place has to be given to Peter for his wonderful all year-round display. His garden was absolutely outstanding, and I hope it gives as much pleasure to passers-by as it did for me to judge’’

Welcome Planters are In Bloom

Knutsford is in full bloom with a new welcome for visitors.

Large wooden planters have now been set around the ‘Welcome to Knutsford’ signs in Northwich Road, Knutsford Road and Chelford Road.

A smaller hanging planter is also on display on the Toft Road entry sign as part of the town’s submission for the North West in Bloom competition.

RHS judges were in Knutsford on 18th July to assess the town in the categories of horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community involvement for its entry.

Over the past two years Knutsford has won gold at North West in Bloom thanks to the hard work of the volunteers who maintain planters and beds around the town. Their efforts are supported by the Town Ranger, ANSA Environmental Services (Cheshire East) and the Town Council.

This year the judges were greeted by some traditional Knutsford street sanding at the council offices before embarking on a tour which took in Sparrow Lane allotments, Bexton Primary School’s garden and the floral displays in the town centre. Along the way the judges met volunteers from Friends of the Heath, Friends of the Moor, Knutsford in Bloom, Knutsford Heritage Centre garden volunteers and Town Ranger Bob Garner to talk about their contributions to the ‘In Bloom’ campaign.

The ‘Welcome to Knutsford’ flowers, planted by sponsor T & S Riley, will be replanted to bloom throughout the seasons and watered by the Town Ranger.

The Mayor of Knutsford, Cllr Pete Coan, said ‘’I would personally like to thank all the residents and businesses who worked so hard to make the town look splendid. It really does make such a difference to see the town coming together, yet again to show off their civic pride’’
