It’s a Thursday so the new Knutsford and Warrington Guardian Newspapers are out.  Ian caught up with Deputy Editor, Gareth Dunning to find out what’s in this weeks paper.

No bin collections for Warrington

Due to strike action by UNITE members as part of a national pay dispute, there will be no bin collections in the Warrington area until after 16th October.

In the meantime Warrington Borough Council are recommending that you flatten waste as much as possible, try to share bin space with a willing neighbour – or to use one of the community recycling centres:

Good News for Warrington’s Own Buses

New routes are being introduced and the electric fleet is coming soon!

The X5 to Manchester Airport from Warrington (via Lymm & Altrincham) is as popular as ever, with the ticket costing just £2.

The first bus from Warrington Interchange is 5.08am and it runs throughout the day.

£24K in 24 hours

Local Charity, CAFT – The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust are holding a special fundraising day on Friday 6th October and are hoping to raise £24K in 24 hours – which will provide over 2000 children with half-day visits to the farm.

There’ll be a series of fundraising events throughout the region – and at Cheshire’s MIX56 we’ll be broadcasting live from Lymm Cross and giving you the chance to Pay for a Play.  We’ll play your favourite song on the radio in return for a small donation!
