Meet the local Liberal Democrats in Poynton at the weekend. They're a cheerful and enthusiastic group. Going round the town centre we stop to retrieve some rubbish discarded in the tubs outside the old cinema and drop them in the nearby bin. (The newspaper under my arm is the Macclesfield Express, which is not part of the rubbish. Definitely not!) Later I get shown the skateboard rink, where youngsters are performing quite amazing acrobatics on their BMX bikes, happily enjoying themselves out of earshot of the neighbouring houses. I've promised myself a trip to the Anson engine factory when it re-opens.
