CPRA Quiz Night 22 Feb

The ever-popular CPRA pub quiz night will be held this year on Friday 22nd February, at the Ship Inn, Handbridge, starting at 7.30 p.m.. Come and enjoy a fun evening with some of your neighbours and bond over a drink or two. We would love to see some new faces as well, of course, as familiar ones. Ready-made teams are welcome, but anyone coming on their own or as a pair will, if they so wish, be married up with others

Tickets cost £18 per person, to include a main meal (from a choice of two, with a vegetarian option additionally available), and a drink of your choice upon arrival.

To book or for further information, please contact Jayne Rowe on 07985 266415 or via email on Jaynie38@hotmail.com as soon as possible as numbers attending must be confirmed to the host venue a week in advance.

Please note that this is an adult-only event.

CPRA Volunteer Day

Following the very successful Westminster Park clean-up in January in which some of our members participated, Our Highways and Open Spaces Group is proposing a similar exercise in Curzon Park on Sunday 24th February between 10.a.m and 1 p.m. The main emphasis will be on:

  • Bulb Planting
  • Trimming of tree spurs (epicormic growth), principally in Curzon Park South
  • Litter tidy-up

We have a small supply of pickers and plenty of litter bags, though any participant who can bring along a lopper or other tool likely to be needed is encouraged to do so.

Further information will be circulated by email.

A member has recently reported finding a syringe in Dingle Bank next to the footbridge. Drug users are known to use that and other locations within Curzon Park.  Should you come across a syringe or “sharp”, you are advised to leave it in situ and contact the council  There is an emergency telephone number for such occurrences, 0300 123 7035, for use at any time, 365 days p.a.

An on-line reporting formcan be found at  https://cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/contact-us/report-it/report-it.aspx. (Click on ‘Litter and Litter Bins’), but this will only be picked up during office hours (Monday-Friday 8.a.m. to 5 p.m).
