Missing Cat - Can You Help?
"Hi Neil, As a resident of Lymm, I really hope this will help! My cat went missing last Tuesday 31st March - she is mainly white with a black tail and has a striking black nose and ears. She responds to the name Narla. Is there any chance of this being put on the Lost and Found section of the Lymm Website? Would be really grateful! I live at the top end of Lymm near to the Crown Pub and Co-op so she may be around that area. I have attached a photo to help too! Many thanks, Melissa Contact: 07561803380"

Time for the people of Lymm to step up again. Can anyone help Don find his beloved cat? Please share like crazy, it worked last time!
"My cat went missing 9th September 2014. He's a very old and rickety Havana Brown called Baz, a neutered male. He has wheezy breathing and is very thin. He should be on a special diet. He lives at 6 Whitbarrow Road and his family can be reached on 07894 461931. Any news would be gratefully received. He usually patrolled on the upper part of Whitbarrow Road near the old Fire Station."

A Doctor from Lymm has been arrested in a police probe on suspicion of possessing and distributing indecent images.
David McMaster, aged 49, is a GP at Quayside Medical Practice in Failsworth, Manchester. He was arrested by police and bailed while the investigation continues. Mr McMaster has also been suspended from working as a GP following the arrest.
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: “Following an investigation a 49-year-old man from Lymm was arrested on suspicion of possessing and distributing indecent images.
"He has since been bailed. Enquiries are continuing."
A spokesman for the General Medical Council said Mr McMaster can longer practise as a GP, while he is under police investigation.
NHS England in Greater Manchester has confirmed it is aware of the arrest. It said it was working with Quayside Medical Practice to ensure services for patients are not affected.
According to the practice website, the experienced doctor has been a GP for 25 years.
Mr McMaster has also held a senior position as a board member of the Clinical Commissioning Group for Oldham. He joined as clinical director of urgent care, although it is believed he no longer acts in the role.
Well thought of in the profession, Mr McMaster was a 'health leader', helping form the strategy of Oldham's health services while on the CCG board.
The Warrington resident was charged with planning services including accident and emergency, ambulance and out of hours care. As a result, the suspect spent time observing in A and E hospital departments. And Mr McMaster was responsible for ensuring local people got the best service.
While a GP in Oldham, he worked alongside medical students to offer support and guidance.

Plans to knock down a former service station in Lymm and replace it with a supermarket will be discussed this week. Developers went to flatten the old Rushgreen Service Station and build a large food shop in its place. But neighbours and former Mayor Clr Sheila Woodyatt have objected to the plans which will be debated by councillors on Wednesday.
Planning officers at Warrington Town Hall say the scheme should go ahead. Residents say not only will the development hit the rural character of that part of Lymm, but that its opening could hit exisiting traders in the centre of the village nearby.
Clr Woodyatt said she had referred the application to the planning sub-committee because of the “serious local concern about the detrimental effect on the rural character of this part of Rushgreen Road, increase in traffic and potential harm to the viability of the shops in Lymm village centre.”
Neighbours say there is no need for the new shop with a Sainsbury’s Local available on The Cross and say it could threaten current businesses.
They also argue the increased traffic would worsen existing congestion which can build up on Rushgreen Road.
However, in a detailed report, planners say they believe at least half the new shoppers won’t currently shop in Lymm and say there is a quick turnaround for vacant units in the centre of Lymm - therefore reducing the threat of a new development.
The application will be discussed at 6.30pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
