WELCOME to a personal website about Nantwich - the place where they
pay you to live! Or so some wits say (see
here). The town is served with a
of excellent websites, and I like to think of this as one of them! For a
list of the others see this
My website is a mixture of
random thoughts and ideas which appeal to me, as well as details of the
events that are happening in town or the immediate villages - and more.

Council appoints a town crier
NANTWICH Town Council has appointed a town crier to greet shoppers and proclaim
events. He will also promote businesses wishing
to announce special offers.
owners of the Nantwich Walled Garden site have submitted revised
applications to build apartments on the site, with Cheshire East Council
planners setting a decision target date of March 31. This is still shown as

More of his images can be found on this website (here).
