Trapped Horse Rescued

Firefighters Rescue a Trapped Horse in Lymm

This was the scene when firefighters rescued an 18-year-old horse that was trapped in five feet of mud while grazing in a field in Lymm.

Firefighters from Stockton Heath and the animal rescue unit at Knutsford Fire Station rushed to the scene at 12.40pm to help free the 14.2 hand high Palomina mare named Nymph.

The horse needed to be sedated by the vet before crews could attempt to rescue her. It was a joint effort after staff from the farm dug a ramp before the rescue team put straps around the horse’s body to pull her safety.

Nymph's owner, Tracy Clough from Lymm, said: "I can't thank the emergency services enough. It's not until you need something so urgently that you realise how amazing they are. All of them were not only brilliant at their jobs but they were so understanding and kind at what was a really traumatic time."

It is understood that Nymph has not suffered as a result of the ordeal but it still being monitored by vets.

Stockton Heath Watch manager Mark Pollard said: "It was a lengthy rescue but once we got Nymph out of the mud she was soon back on her hooves and, apart from needing a good bath, seemed none the worse for her experience."

Filming In Lymm Again

The Royle Family's Craig Cash spotted in Lymm During "After Hours" Filming

The Royle Family’s Craig Cash was spotted in Lymm on Tuesday when a camera crew were in the village to film a new Sky comedy.

He is recording scenes along the canal, outside the village hall, in Pepper Street and at the Bull's Head pub for new show After Hours over the next couple of weeks.

The Jellylegs Productions crew have also used a high tech eight-bladed helicopter called an ‘octocopter’ for filming on the canal footpath.

After Hours will star Father Ted’s Ardal O’Hanlon, Cold Feet’s John Thomson and Mad Dogs’ Jaime Winstone.

The six-part series follows Willow Hannigan (James Tarpey from The World’s End), an 18-year-old who has just had his heart broken.

His ex-girlfriend Jasmine (Ice Cream Girls’ Georgina Campbell) has moved on to someone new, his mates have gone away to university and there are no jobs. So the only thing that keeps him sane is listening to After Hours, a radio show broadcast from a canal boat.

Jaime Winstone and Rob Kendrick play radio hosts Lauren and Ollie while Ardal O’Hanlon stars as Peter, Willow’s dad and an out-of-work milkman. John Thomson takes the buddy role as Peter’s best friend, Geoff.

Ian Marks, chairman of Lymm Festival, said: "We are delighted that Jellylegs and Sky have chosen Lymm as their location for the series. It has created quite a buzz in the village with so much activity going on. We are all looking forward to seeing the final result."

Newcomers Molly Naylor and John Osborne have written After Hours with Craig Cash in the director’s chair. Craig added: “John and Molly have created a world which is not only very funny but has genuine warmth at its heart. It's a pleasure to be working with such talented new writers and a cast of great comic actors.”

Lymm Piranhas J.F.C. Under 10s

Our under 10s team (for those born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004) are looking for new players for the coming season (Under 11s for 2014/15). The team who have been together for 5 years move from playing 7 a-side football to 9 a-side in the 2014/15 season and therefore seek additional players.

The team trains on a Monday evening all year round and plays in the Warrington Junior Football League on Saturday mornings. Over the summer, we usually enter a couple of organised tournaments. The emphasis is very much on the kids enjoying their football whilst developing their skills an no previous experience or skill level is required. Any parents of current Year 5 children who are interested in joining the team or just popping along to a training session to see how they like it, should contact the Under 10s Coach, Andy Butterworth (07563 789 993 or
