The UTC Protest

Thank you very much to all those who came to Alsager School on Wednesday to support our ‘protest’ about the UTC. The Sentinel photographer turned up early, at 6 pm (obviously a communication problem) but we had a decent sized crowd by that time. Sadly, the photo published on Thursday does not reflect the trouble he took and especially not the group of residents who so willingly posed for the shots! We did however get a very good write-up. The Alsager Chronicle team came at 6.30 as arranged and after a few distractions more photos were taken of a mostly different group of people. Their reporter also interviewed lots of residents inside and outside the exhibition and we will see the results next week. Our sincere apologies and of course thanks again for making the effort, to a few locals who came as promised but did not realise that we had ended up, just round the corner, outside the Leisure Centre Entrance because the Main Entrance was closed. We were there from about 4.30 until almost 7 pm with our placards and rumours that we have heard about that we had been and gone before 6.30 are not true.

So we are sorry some of you missed what we think was a successful event – considering the very short notice, people unavoidably having other commitments on Wednesday evening and many away on holiday (which may also explain the timing of the exhibition!)
