Question:  Which Olympic athletes have a 'strong' association with our village?

The first is Shirley Strong, the Cuddington girl who won a silver medal for Great Britain in the 100 metre hurdles at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, missing out on Gold by 0.04 seconds; born on Grange Road, Cuddington, she remained in the village throughout her athletic career.

The second is Andy Carter who represented Great Britain in the 800 metres final at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. Andy won the AAA title in 1970, 1972 and 1973 and held the British 800 metres record for many years before Seb Coe came along.  A local informant tells us that Andy is proud to be a member, with his son Tom, of a rather elite club: both father and son are sub-4-minute-milers!

Andy lives on Delamere Park.

Much more about this and many other 'notables' in the book.....


Cuddington resident Jill King is looking forward to the publication of her second book this month (November 2016).

Local historical research has become a passion for Jill since her retirement from the teaching profession. This latest offering takes a look at the lives of village residents, past and present, who have made exceptional contributions that have impacted beyond the immediate Mid-Cheshire locality.

This 128 page, A4 book covers a period of 400 years so that prominent figures of the past are found alongside present day personalities such as Gary Barlow, and 'Only Fools and Horses' director Tony Dow.
