Delight for Lymm High Students

Posted by Neil on Wednesday, 03 September 2014 at 16:28:46

Filed under: Announcements, School

There were sighs of relief and lots of congratulations in order as pupils discovered their GCSE results at Lymm High School.

Almost half of all students secured one or more of the highest grades at GCSE achieving an A*, and a quarter achieved three or more A* or A grades.

In BTEC courses, there was a 100 per cent pass rate, whereas, in other equivalent qualifications, 89 per cent of students achieved merit or distinction grades.

Executive principal Tarun Kapur said: “Despite a good deal of change at the school in the last year the students and staff have really risen to the challenge to produce some creditable results that enable them to move on to the next stage of their education.”

Myles Jones, who achieved one A* distinction, three A*s, three As and three Bs, was relieved to pick up his results after a long wait.

The 16-year-old from Lymm said: "They are as good as I hoped they would be. I am now looking forward to starting Lymm Sixth Form to start something different."

Rushgreen Food Shop Plans

Posted by Neil on Monday, 25 August 2014 at 16:26:35

Filed under: Announcements, Appeals for Information, Political, Shopping

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.

Missing Cat

Filed under: Lymm, Appeals for Information

Can anybody help Jo Bennett?

"Hi, I have just moved to Lymm and our cat has gone missing. :-(

His name is Benson and he was last seen on Wayside Close (behind Lady Acre Close). I was hoping you may be able to pop this photo on your facebook page for me.

If anyone has seen him, please could they let me know.

Thanks so much, Jo x (mob 07527 340762)"
