HAS PANDEMIC DEFEATED THE BATTLE OF NANTWICH / HOLLY HOLY DAY?
JANUARY is the month when the Battle of Nantwich in 1644 during the English Civil War is re-enacted by The Sealed Knot Society and supporting events take place in town. The official website does not include any reference to the event this year, which would have been planned for January 23. Of course, with the close contact involved in re-enacting the battle, staging the event would go against the Lockdown 3 regulations.
CIVIC HALL IS TOWN'S VENUE FOR COVID-19 VACCINATIONS
NANTWICH Civic Hall is the venue of the Covid-19 vaccinations in Nantwich in a service run by Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network staff.
Patients with an appointment for vaccination can gain access to the hall by the side entrance facing the car park. The ramp to the side door has a "tunnel" where the queue of patients wait, in case of bad weather.
Patients who drive into town for their appointment are able to park on the Civic Hall's large car park. accessed from Beam Street. Shoppers at Marks and Spencer are still able to gain access to the store's car park.
As is the national norm, the vaccinations are by appointment only. It is not possible to turn up and hope to be vaccinated. The appointments are administered in a timetable for different categories of patients.
Appointments to attend the vaccinations are being sent out by the surgeries. They should not be contacted for an appointment.
Dr David Holden, Clinical Lead for Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network, said: We have worked really hard to get this site ready to begin the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme and we are really delighted to be able to begin vaccinating patients in the Nantwich and Rural area.
The Care Network is made up of five local GP practices Audlem Medical Practice, Kiltearn Medical Centre, Nantwich Health Centre, Tudor Surgery and Wrenbury Medical Centre.

BLOOMS NOT JUDGED THIS YEAR BUT THE WORK WENT ON
JUDGING of the blooms in Nantwich did not take place in 2020 but Nantwich in Bloom Committee carried on with what they do best - keeping the town centre looking blooming good.
With lockdown eased in May the Committee carried out NHS Rainbow-themed planting as tributes to medical and public servicer workers.
There were fewer hanging baskets because of a watering issue.
The Mayor of Nantwich, Cllr Pam Kirkham and her Deputy, her daughter Caroline, helped to judge the floral displays in town, with certificates awarded to the best..
The Committee's new allotment was used for growing vegetables but in future will be used for propagating plants for town displays.
The Committee has done more than the tasks listed here - at the Community Orchard, Nantwich railway station, the Coed Wen community woodland and in the Riverside.
