The Addams Family - The Musical!

Knutsford Musical Theatre Company (KMTC) is a small, friendly amateur musical theatre society that has been performing shows since 1943 and who aim to put on two shows every year.

KMTC  is pleased to announce that their next show is the Addams Family. The story in the musical is drawn entirely from the original cartoons rather than the TV or movie series. The original show opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, Broadway on March 8, 2010, costing $15m to produce. By June 2011 it had had over 500 performances and grossed $62m.

The Addams Family Musical by the KMTC will be showing at Northwich Memorial Court from 28th - 31st October 2015!  You can buy tickets on the KMTC website.

This truly ghoulish comedy musical comes to you at Halloween this year.  The show opens with an annual gathering of all family members (living, dead, and undecided) in a graveyard. 

The plot revolves around every father's nightmare.  Gomez Addams is caught in an impossible situation as his daughter, Wednesday Addams (the ultimate princess-of-darkness) has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family.  

If that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother, Morticia.  Gomez  must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife.  Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents. 

With a dynamic cast and direction team, The Addams Family will build on the recent sucesses of this vibrant theatre company.

No Supermarket Confirmed for Lymm

Posted by Neil on Thursday, 12 February 2015 at 15:36:55

Detailed plans to open a food shop on the former site of Rushgreen Services in Lymm have been submitted.

Developers Brookhouse have sent Warrington Borough Council a planning application to clear the former petrol station site on Rushgreen Road and to build a supermarket in its place.

The detailed application follows outline planning permission being given the go ahead last year.

It is for a slightly bigger supermarket than originally suggested, with 57 car parking spaces and the creation of 25 jobs. A report included in the application states the potential owners of the supermarket still do not want to be named.

It adds: "The proposed supermarket would be of a modest scale. However, it would be larger than any existing provision at Lymm and provide the opportunity for local residents to undertake weekly shopping, thereby avoiding trips to large supermarkets at Altrincham, Warrington, Stockton Heath or elsewhere. The proposal would also introduce choice and competition from which local people would benefit."

A survey of shopping habits among people in Lymm, included in the application, showed that the most popular destination for households in the WA13 post code area is Morrisons at Greenalls Avenue, 16 per cent, followed by Sainsbury’s at Warrington 10 per cent, Sainsbury’s at Altrincham, 8 per cent, Tesco at Altrincham 6 per cent and Waitrose at Altrincham, 5 per cent.

The report concludes: "The proposed development is significantly larger in scale than the existing Sainsbury’s Local store in Lymm Village Centre or the Co-operative stores and Costcutter elsewhere in Lymm. It will therefore provide more opportunity for local people to undertake their main food and grocery shopping locally at Lymm. In this respect the current proposal is larger than the outline scheme. It will provide a greater choice and avoid the need to travel to large foodstores, at least for some main shopping trips."

A decision will be made on the application later this year.

Lymm Squash Club is looking to grow its coaching and development program for children aged 5-17 in Warrington and surrounding areas; aiming to introduce children to the popular sport of Squash.

The coaching program features six weekly squash coaching sessions on Saturday mornings led by coach Darren McCann. Sessions are tailored to suit children of any age and ability with each program concluding with a competition and prizes for participants.

The first program received great feedback with all participants signing up for the next program.  “The club is looking to build on the success of the first program by boosting the number of participants,” said Rob Spurr, Chairman of Lymm Squash Club. “We aim to give these Juniors the opportunity to compete at County and National level in the future as they develop.  Perhaps we’ll find the next Commonwealth Games star in Lymm!”

Six weeks of coaching works out at only £18 per child per and all equipment is provided making it a low cost sport to take up.

New Lymm Supermarket Approved

Warrington Council has signed off plans for a 6,500 sq ft convenience store, on the site of a former petrol station in Rushgreen Road.

The project is being brought forward by Sale-based property development and investment company Brookhouse Group. The occupier of the store is yet to be named.

Development of the store will include parking for 57 cars.

Tom Whitehead, town planning manager at Brookhouse, said: "This is a fantastic result and we now look forward to further progressing the proposal, including confirming the operator.

"As well as bringing this derelict land back into use, the store will offer a number of benefits to the local community. The supportive feedback we received highlighted that many residents are looking forward to the prospect of new jobs and greater choice as well as the chance to carry out more of their food shopping in Lymm instead of surrounding towns."

Earlier this year, nearly 400 people attended a public exhibition on the plans. Responses received during and after the event, indicated that the majority were in favour of the proposal. Planning officers had also recommended that the scheme be approved.

Construction is likely to start later this year with the new store expected to be open in summer 2015. The architect for the store is Cassidy + Ashton.
