by Lisa Reeves Thursday 28th June 2018

A very popular and well known member of the community sadly passed away on Monday, 25th June, at the age of 90.
Margaret Melrose lived in Alderley Edge for 28 years. She was a councillor for 34 years, first being elected in 1967, and twice Chairman of Cheshire County Council – the first woman ever to hold the position in 1984.
The A34 Alderley Edge and Nether Alderley Bypass was been named Melrose Way in honour of Margaret who fought tirelessly for its construction since the 1960s.
Her funeral will be held at 11am on Wednesday 11th July, at St Mary’s Church in Nether Alderley and afterwards at the Parish Hall next door.
