He may have only been in charge of Plymouth Argyle for a little over 18 months, but Neil Warnock will always be one of the club’s favourite sons. On Sunday, the straight-talking Yorkshireman made football history by guiding Cardiff City to promotion to the Premier League, a record-breaking eighth promotion for Warnock. It is something LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson, himself a former manager, has called “the ultimate achievement.” Loathed by many, Warnock is loved in equal measure. Speak to supporters at many of the clubs he has managed and they will speak in glowing terms, none more so than they do here in Plymouth. Warnock’s time at Home Park was all too short, but it is remembered well. And it is fair to say he fell in love with the area and retains a soft spot for both the Westcountry and Argyle. The 69-year-old still owns a home in south east Cornwall and often brings the club he is managing here for a pre-season tour to take on teams from the Carlsberg South … [Read more...] about Neil Warnock: An Argyle favourite who has become a master of his trade

Businesses in a market town are looking to the future. Firms in Neston are coming together to form a ‘more modern, vibrant and co-operative’ trade organisation. Neston and District Chamber of Trade says it has been in existence for around 60 years offering support to local businesses. It has also been working with councils and other organisations to improve life in the town and surrounding villages. With an ‘ever-changing’ business sector, including the shift towards more small businesses and people working from home, as well as the introduction of ‘fresh and exciting traders’ in the shopping areas locally, the existing committee at the chamber is said to have recognised it also needs to move with the times.
