Access for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained throughout, with access for residents’ and emergency vehicles where possible.

The recommended alternative route is via Childs Lane, Newcastle Road (A34), the Waggon and Horses/Tesco roundabout and Sandbach Road (A534).

Readesmoor Medical Centre is coordinating the vaccination programme on behalf of the other practices that cover Congleton, Lawton House and Meadowside.

The first vaccinations will take place on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 January at Congleton Town Hall.  Further dates will be known shortly when more vaccines become available. Vulnerable people and older age groups are being vaccinated first, and appointments are being arranged by an outside agency in Manchester. The telephone number is 0161 660 4280.

Please do not phone until asked to do so, and do not call your own practice as they are not responsible for the booking process.  The vaccine is currently in short supply, so please be patient and you will be advised when to call the booking agency.

You will be pleased to learn that Covid-19 vaccines are coming to Cheshire East, and that, with the arrival of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine, there will be a vaccination centre in Congleton.

More information on this Healthwatch Cheshire East page, but in particular please help the NHS deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme effectively by following this simple guidance:

  • Healthwatch Cheshire East will contact people in the priority groups when it is their turn to receive the vaccine. Please do not contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.
  • When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you attend appointments when you arrange them.
  • Please continue to wear a face covering and abide by social distancing and hand hygiene guidance as, until the vaccine has been fully rolled out, this is the most effective way to save lives.

If you wish to report anything which you believe to be against the law, our PCSO has asked that you contact the police directly rather than the parish council.  This will ensure that the matter is resolved sooner.  You can find contact details on our Contacting Cheshire Police page, which is linked from our main menu at the top of every page.

Please not the following roadworks:

  • Childs Lane: 14 – 15 December, outside Fairhaven, to install a signpost — see map for details
  • Wallhill Lane: 14 – 22 December, outside Oak House, to install a vehicle-activated sign — see map for details

In each case, traffic will be controlled by two-way signals, between on each day between 9:30am and 3:30pm.
