Welcome to a special festive edition of the Whitehill Online Sunday Supplement. This week we are going to take a festive look back at the week that was in Kidsgrove, as most of the town is now sporting twinkling lights and festive baubles.
It’s been a fairly quiet week in Kidsgrove on the news front. It does appear that the impending visit of Santa is dominating the focus and attention of many Kidsgrove residents. On the Santa front, we learnt the sad news regarding the fact that some people have been visiting the Kidsgrove area pretending to be from the Kidsgrove Rotary Club collecting money, in advance of their Santa making the festive visit to the local area. We can only hope that due to the increased awareness this matter has now stopped.
It has also been another week where Kidsgrove was battered by high winds and localised flooding. It does beg the question how well the drains have been cleaned, as some areas appear to constantly suffer issues with flooding. One road which many residents complain about is The Avenue in Kidsgrove where following heavy rain, every single speed hump / cushion appears to be followed by a large puddle. If this is a design fault then maybe the council should consider this before just installing a pile of tarmac on a road?
Finally look out for a few festive specials online over the holiday period and I personally wish you all a Merry Christmas!
