Your views ofCH64

JNC, Chester

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

We like the friendly attitude of people in the town and the benefit of not having `through traffic`. We don`t like the lack of emergency services in the area, in particular Fire Service and Ambulance. We are aware of a Police presence by virtue of the cars parked behind the town hall where there is access to `police` via a wall phone but no face to face contact. We do not enjoy only an hourly service by bus to Chester which does not provide a facility if we stay later on in the City. Sceptical at the moment of having access to our marshes closed to provide a pathway or is it a high speed cycle track !

Discrimination by Postcode

You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.

The Redesign is Underway

The Redesign is Underway

Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
