VE75 Day in Moston

You may or may not know but we have a Swing Band based in Moston, The Debonaires, and last year the band made a recording of The Lambeth Walk and a number of Moston residents helped with the ‘oy

The Lambeth Walk was played extensively on VE day and Alan and Anne Holder have supplied the attached link of the recording which can be played and sung along to on Friday (also at any other time).

Many of us have decorated  the fronts of out houses with flags and bunting, it would be great if we are able to sit in our front gardens and chat as safe as possible with neighbours to celebrate this day.

So here is the timetable for our virtual Moston VE75 Day party.

At 3.0pm Alan will play on the band P.A. system the air raid siren as the last ”All Clear” and we can all do the nation’s toast to the heroes of World War 2.

” To those who gave so much, we thank you ”

At 3.05 we can play and singalong to the Debonaires recording of The Lambeth Walk.

After this Alan will play VE day music on the band PA system, it will depend on the wind direction who and how many of us hear it, hopefully many of us.

Lets make the best of this celebration in spite of Covid-19.

On 2nd April 2020 The Planning Inspectorate allowed the appeal against refusal by Cheshire East Council of Planning Application 18/2413C for 1 residential Gypsy/Traveller pitch on Land Adjoining Meadowview Park, Dragons Lane.  This brought the number of residential units in The Health and Safety Executive inner consultation zone to 2, the maximum permitted.

On 6th April 2020 Planning Application 20/0183C for the removal of existing concrete and asbestos garage and replace with new conservatory at Oakwood Farm, Oakwood Lane was refused by Cheshire East Planning as being a disproportionate addition to the original dwelling. The parish council had no objection to the proposal.

Coronovirus support

Moston Parish Council would like to offer help and support to the parish in these challenging times.

At the moment it is not entirely clear what support will be required.   Some people may need supplies, prescriptions collecting, items posting, dogs taking to the vet, etc.  This may be because they are in a vulnerable population or because they are in self isolation.  Please contact either myself Kristine Pemberton ( or 07854594726) or one of the councillors if you would like any help.  If you suspect that a neighbour will not see this message or may need help then please drop a note through their door with my phone number.

We will get through this if we support each other
