It’s a Thursday and the new Guardian is out.  Time to catch up with Deputy Editor, Gareth Dunning to find out what’s in this week’s paper.

The local bin strike dominates the news again this week, as workers at the Warrington Depot enter the fourth round of strike action – due to last until early December.

UNITE Union members nationally started strike action in October – and though a settlement on pay has been agreed, workers from Warrington want more…

As support from people across Warrington gets very thin on the ground, Warrington Borough Council are making a move towards taking legal action saying the current strike is illegal.  You can read more about it in this week’s paper.

Good News For Bus Commuters

Winwick Road is always a challenge to navigate during rush hour – but a solution is on the horizon.  The council are currently consulting on the possibility of adding an extra lane, reserved for buses, along Winwick Road.  This will be an additional lane – so the current 2 lanes for normal traffic will remain.

However, it will be a big project and could take 18 months to complete – meaning that there could be some travel disruption in the near future.

Strictly St Rocco’s

Now in it’s 9th year, Strictly St Rocco’s is back on Sunday 10th December – and this year will be at a new venue, Nunsmere Hall Hotel in Tarporley.

It’s an important event for the charity, raising thousands of pounds every year.

Only a few tickets are remaining now.  Find out more at St Rocco’s.

Warrington BID Winter Wonderland

Warrington BID brings a festival of Christmas fun over the weekend of 25th to 26th November 2023.
