Public Meeting with Harworth Estate Investments Ltd, the owners of the former Golf Course
was held on Monday 25 November at St Oswald Primary School. 6 pm.
The owners were keen to work constructively with residents and local partners to better understand how the Golf Course was used and how permissive paths into and through the Golf Course can be improved. They noted our aspirations for a safe traffic free cycle and walking route connecting the village to the Countess of Chester Country Park. If you would like more information and have further comments following the meeting please contact Chair, Roger Jones.

Chester Half Marathon has been postoned until September
This year the event will be coming through the villages of Mollington and Lea. We appreciate that there will be some disruption to traffic for a period on the Sunday morning in question, but we hope that residents will see this event and an opportunity to show case our community spirit. We hope that many will come out to Marshal or cheer on the runners in their efforts to raise funds for worthy causes.
Event Road Closures
Chester Half Marathon Postoned until September
While runners on on the road it is not safe for cars to be on the road. There will be about an hour from approx. 09.15 to 10.20 am while the runners are on the southern part of Townfield Lane and Station Road, so these roads will be closed. Outside these times, where possible, our marshals will assist residents in and out of the village, via the A41. Please be considerate.
If you would like to volunteer to Marshal the Half Marathon as it passes through the village, please get in touch with Roger or Christine Jones 01244 851842
Some residents have expressed concern at the number of trees which have be felled on private land in recent years. Applying Tree Protection Orders on trees in the Parish is a lengthy and resource heavy exercise. We would therefore ask residents to respect these wonderful old trees and make every effort to care for any on their land, for the benefit of all. We are presently walking the village to record significant trees. Oak, beech, sycamore and Horse Chestnut trees line our hedgerows and many of our front garden boundaries. If you are out and about, walking the village and you see a tree you think is worthy of recording, please let us know.
