Warrington Jobs Club returns for 9th Season 

The hugely successful and popular Jobs Club founded by David Mowat is set to return in early September for a 9th season. Drawing on the skills of local business leaders, participants will be able to brush up on their job hunting skills.

Over 200 people in Warrington have now benefitted from the club and more than two thirds of those attending have subsequently found a job, started their own business or gone back into a training course.

The Jobs Club draws on the expertise of local businessmen and entrepreneurs to assist participants with skills building, preparing for interviews and improving their CVs.

However, most of the previous participants have said that the most important part of the Jobs Club is the chance to meet with a group of people in a similar situation to themselves and re-motivate them to continue their job search.

David Mowat said "the participants will tell you that one of the most important things we do here is to rebuild their confidence so that when the job they want comes along, they will seize it with both hands."

We have another one on 28th September and we are interviewing for this at the Job Centre on the 12th of September between 9am - 1pm.  To book a free place please contact Karen@ccoworkcic.com or call 07939164110.

MP hears views on HS2

Over 100 people crammed in to Lymm Youth & Community Centre on Friday night to hear about plans to construct part of the new HS2 line to the east of Lymm.

Local people heard from John Grimes from Agden, Broomedge and Lymm East to Stop HS2, Joe Rukin from Stop HS2 and Warrington South MP, David Mowat. The event was organised by Warrington Friends of the Earth.

Following the meeting, Mr Mowat commented:

"The turnout, on a wet and windy Friday night, shatters the myth that most people don't care about politics.

"Although the line will be over two miles from the centre of Lymm Village, there will be a small number of people whose homes will be affected. I am committed, as their local MP, to helping them get the generous compensation they deserve.

"However, as I made clear at the meeting, there is a pressing need for additional capacity to drive economic growth and ensure that is evenly spread across the country. The sad fact is that the money set aside for HS2 would otherwise be spent on yet more transport projects in London and the South East, which would bring no benefit to Warrington whatsoever."
