Dear Readers!

As I write, the sun is finally beginning to peep through after the grey and dismal start to the year. Just hope it’s not lulling us into a sense of false security and that Spring really has sprung!! Sadly, the sun has highlighted the need to do a bit of Spring cleaning and renovation around the Editorial homestead - so if you are feeling the same, take a look through our Homes and Gardens section (which we have brought forward in the magazine this month for that very reason!). Lots of help to choose from here! And, as we mentioned, signs of summer to come with announcements of stage acts from both Macclesfield Festival and Rewind. Looking forward to both of these! Must remember to get some flowers for my hair! New enterprising initiative in town with The Sarturday Gallery on Pickford Street - read all about it on Page 10 or better still, pay a visit! Shrove Tuesday on 5th March so get flipping, Mothering Sunday on 31st March and some other event reminders dotted through the magazine! See if you can find them. Finally, on Page 59, our very own BIG news! As Bob once rasped, ‘the times, they are a-changin’’, but hopefully in a good way as we plan to bring you more local content, written by local people, and connect local business with many more local customers. So, we will be back - but maybe not until May through your own particular door!

Have a good month, Heather

The Bridges on track for April opening For those looking to downsize in Macclesfield, there’s good news on the horizon as luxury retirement developer Adlington is soon to open its doors and will be welcoming new homeowners during April at its brand-new development on Buxton Road. Overlooking the Macclesfield Canal and boasting 62 one, two and three-bedroom apartments together with a table service restaurant, hairdressing salon, assisted spa and therapy room and homeowners’ lounge, The Bridges development is quickly taking shape and has already taken a number of off-plan reservations by eager purchasers. Each spacious apartment will include generous living and dining areas, with a fullyfitted and modern kitchen. Many feature en-suite shower rooms and separate bathrooms and most have walk-on balconies or a patio area directly onto beautifully landscaped gardens.

A community on your doorstep

Alongside the superbly-appointed apartments, fantastic communal facilities and beautiful surroundings, The Bridges offers a great new community for those wanting to live an independent life in a contemporary and secure environment. Moving to a retirement development offers access to a likeminded community. Although the apartments are private, there are plenty of opportunities for companionship, with community hubs that homeowners can be as involved in as little or as much as they like.

Care and support if you ever need it

Adlington’s real point of difference is the 24-hour on-site support and tailored care option, should homeowners ever need it. Offering flexible assistance, from long term tailored care packages to short term recuperation support, to suit individual needs.

Safety and Security

Security is of paramount importance at Adlington and a sophisticated emergency call system allows the 24-hour on-site team to give immediate assistance should it be required. For added peace of mind, a security video entry comes as standard in all apartments so that visitors can be seen before being allowed access to the development.

A helping hand with your move

What’s more, purchasers are supported through each step of their move from help with de-cluttering, to a personal clerk looking after your change of address needs, and a complimentary handyman service to help get your new home just as you’d like it.

A new lease of life

If you are beginning to struggle with the maintenance and upkeep of a large house and garden, The Bridges could be just the answer. It’s a huge relief to family to know that there is a safe environment with help at hand, should it be needed. A range of beautifully furnished Show Apartments are open to view daily from 10am – 5pm. Advance booking is advised via the Marketing Suite – 01625 469 126 8For further information, please visit

Local People - A Teenage Perspective …… A small group of students from various year groups at Macclesfield Academy meets regularly to discuss ideas, work together and support each other as writers. The articles they write for us look at life from a sometimes refreshingly alternative perspective!

This issue, an enthusiastic and mature piece by Anya ….

Be a Bookworm I am frankly obsessed with books, so I am going to share with you a couple of the books that I am most fond of/obsessed with in my teen years. Science fiction has been a popular genre with me since when I was introduced to the genius Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. This masterpiece was one that I was reluctant to read as an eight year old, but soon became one of my favourite books, that I still delight in reading. For those who have not heard of this book previously, it follows the hapless antics of a group of interstellar travellers that do all sorts of strange and random things. The main story follows protagonist Arthur Dent, a human (no real explanation for him really), who desperately tries to find his way back to Earth and is in desperate need of a cup of tea along the way. As I grew older one of the most significant books I loved was ‘I Capture the Castle’, a novel by Dodie Smith ( the same author that wrote 101 Dalmatians); it’s from the perspective of Cassandra Mortmain, an intelligent 17 year old girl trying to find money for her broke bohemian family whilst persuading her eccentric father to write more of his book, as he is suffering from writers’ block. Everything changes when Americans that are set to inherit the castle turn up – it’s dramatic and yet Cassandra still find time to falls in love - the entire story is Cassandra’s diary and her cynical personality is one of her best character traits and makes her voice sound original and interesting. I would recommend it to 11 years plus, but it is entirely based on maturity. ‘Ink’ is a recent novel by Alice Broadway about a sixteen-year-old girl Leora Flint in a society where tattoos are required for every action. It is a remarkably dystopian book that I, as a fan of books such as The Hunger Games and its sequels, found very thought-provoking. Leora’s father died, and his marked skin made into a book, but she soon discovers that his skin has been edited. Because of this, she begins wondering whether her father was really the man she knew. This book, to start, has gorgeous illustrations, which proves it is possible to judge a book by his cover (though not the skin books as is eventually proved). To finish my article, I would like to persuade you to read these books with some information about the effects of reading. There is far too much stress in our lives, and reading has been proven to reduce this by up to 68% after only six minutes of reading (according to a Dr. Mercola). This fact is one of the best arguments for reading, so feel free to quote me (or Dr. Mercola if I am being pedantic). In fact, stop reading this article right now and start reading books!

Anya Wolverson is in Year 7 and in her spare time, enjoys ….. READING!! 18

Local History by John Langdill of Macclesfield Historical Society and volunteer at Macclesfield Museum The Wood Brothers Before giving you the promised change of subject I am going to cover some matters which have arisen from my previous articles. Also Brian Wood, a local architectural consultant, has given me a copy of a map of the course of Wood's Cut and Pool produced by a Macclesfield surveyor in 1941, which has clarified some points. I have previously said that a legal agreement appeared to have prevented the Wood brothers from using water from the Bollin for their mills. I now realise that this was not correct and that there was a separate agreement which covered the Wood's water rights. As I have said before, Wood's Cut started in The Wilderness between Jarman and Hall Road, in Sutton, and one of the sources was the Rossendale Brook, via the sluice gate which is still there, but the Cut was also fed by a sluice on the Bollin. The sluice gate is in a ruinous condition, but is still in place, at the side of some private land. It fed a channel running along far the side of the river from Jarman and into a trough over the Rossendale Brook, leading into the channels in the Wilderness. My speculation is that the Woods may have originally intended the sole source of the Cut to be the Rossendale Brook but found this was insufficient to feed their water wheels and then constructed an additional channel from the Bollin itself. The map shows the layout clearly and it must still have been fully functional in 1941. At the other end of the Cut, the map shows a pipe running underground from Wood's Pool across to Coronation Street 22

and then down the slope, under the Bollin and the railway and into what seems to be a large tank. This must have been on the premises of what was at that time, I think, Backhouse and Coppock's paper works. There is no sign of any link from the pipe or tank to the railway but surprisingly to me, the map shows a pipe leading from the tank to Sutton Brewery which was next to the paper works. There was a deep well on the brewery site which provided the water for brewing and the water from Wood's Pool would hardly have been considered suitable for that purpose, so I assume that the brewery put the water to some other use, possibly washing or cooling. One final point which only struck me recently is that the Wood Brothers' company and the brothers themselves are normally referred to simply as cotton spinners. However they are sometimes described as cotton spinners and manufacturers and on at least one occasion as manufacturers of cotton goods, and when the firm's premises were finally put up for sale in 1851 they included weaving sheds. Writing in the 1920s Richard Wood's grand-daughter Frances said, "Our factory was noted for its artistic cretonnes. The designs in great part came from the famous Wedgwood firm." It therefore seems to be clear that the Woods were weaving cotton cloth as well as spinning and, if Frances is correct, having this dyed or printed to their own designs. It would be interesting to know more about this and what sort of designs they were using. Next time I will definitely be writing about the Saxon cross shafts in our locality.

FOR DEVELOPMENTS COMPLETED AND EVENTS HELD IN 2018 (supported by Macclesfield Town Council)

Strictly - awarded; Oscars - nominated; Brexit - sorted (err … maybe)! All that’s left is time to submit your nominations for the Macclesfield Civic Awards Scheme to find out which were the best developments completed or events held in 2018. The winners won’t get a New Year’s Honour, celebrity status or even a Facebook page but there will be lots of recognition for a job well done, a handy commendation and, if especially good, a trendy ceramic plaque to hang on the wall – so plenty to play for! The Macclesfield Civic Society invites nominations for an award for the best new buildings, improvements and developments completed within the boundaries of the Macclesfield Town Council area between January and December 2018 or for events and exhibitions which made a positive contribution to the character, vitality and prosperity of the town. We also welcome nominations for the 2018 “grot spot” – a site or building that needs tidying up or some TLC – it might stimulate some action !! The judges will look for good design and preservation or enhancement of the character of the town. Consideration will be given to all architectural features such as shop fronts and signs and tidying up of neglected or problem areas. Nominations can be made by individuals, societies, organisations or companies, including developers who can nominate their own schemes. There is no limit to the number of nominations that can be made – the more the better! The deadline is 31 March 2019 (just after something else!). There are two categories of award – a ‘Commendation’ where the successful entrant will receive a certificate and an ‘Award’ where a plaque will also be presented for display on the respective building. For events and exhibitions, a ‘Celebration’ can be awarded. Plaques and certificates will be presented by His Worship the Mayor of Macclesfield at the Civic Society meeting on Wednesday 17 April 2019 at the Heritage Centre.

What causes Pain Between the Shoulder Blades? by Simon Hogan & Ross Mitchell

Pain between your shoulder blades or ‘interscapular pain’ is a common complaint. You may experience aching, dull, sore or shooting pain. It can be frustrating and keep coming back. So what causes it and what can you do to get rid of it?

cancer before and this pain has developed since it may be a good idea to speak to your GP. It is typically not a recurrence but better to be safe than sorry.

What can cause pain between the shoulders blades?

What to do to help?


• Muscles - the trapezius or rhomboid muscles that run from your spine to your shoulder blades can cause pain. • Thoracic spine - soft tissue structures around the joints can cause pain and very rarely the disc. • Your neck - Yes the joints and discs can radiate pain that far down! • Posture - this is normally still muscular Stress! - this is generally still • muscular but the ‘treatment’ or cure is to reduce your stress rather than exercise. With most of the reasons listed you should be able to GET RID of all of your pain. Most of the time, shoulder blade pain isn’t anything to worry about, but in some cases, it can be a sign of a more serious problem. If you have acute chest pain or are acutely short of breath please seek urgent medical help. If you have had

• General movement exercise - if you sit a lot, just moving around more can sometimes be the cure. Nothing specific, just move more! • Stretching - if you are very tense or rigid in the area get stretching. Flex forward, arch back wards and twist your spine. • Strengthening - Unless you are doing pull based movements where your blades come together you can still be relatively weak in the area despite being fit otherwise. • Change your posture - If you sit up straight all day, slump a bit! Yes, it really is ok, maybe not all the time though! If you always slump, try sitting up more of the time. As with all pain problems your symptoms are individual and these are guidelines. If you have symptoms and are struggling to get rid of them give us call. We are experts at getting rid of pain.

Local People‌ talks Coping with Exam Pressures

Anti-Bullying Specialist Kalini Kent works with young people, families and companies on wellbeing, and challenges they face including relationships, mental health, confidence, stress, anxiety and resilience. She writes a bi-monthly piece for LPM about common issues we all face, and in this issue Kalini talks about – the pressures of exams, preparation, overcoming fears and strategies to overcome anxiety and stress

Exam stress occurs when you feel an increased sense of panic or anxiety in the days, weeks or months before, during or after an assessment or test of some sort. This may be a school or music exam or coursework, but for many it may seem that every week there is a test of some sort and it can become overwhelming. So does your child get stressed over the preparation, sitting of them or results, and what impact is it having? Exam anxiety is experienced by many students, and whilst a little bit of stress is useful as it helps them remain focused and disciplined, too much of it is detrimental to their health. It can be an intense time even for the calmest, laid-back children. There is so much pressure to succeed and perform on the day, not wanting to let themselves or their parents down or be judged, comparisons with peers, plus apprehension about the consequences of failure, with so many ‘what ifs’ if things don’t go quite to plan. The stress is most frequently short-lived post exam – as soon as it is finished and they are free from studying for a while, stress levels usually diminish. But some children work themselves into such a frenzy that they can make themselves ill, which can send their productivity levels into a nosedive. The most common symptoms are headaches, migraines, irritability, sleeplessness and prolonged tiredness, an inability to relax, poor concentration, forgetfulness, poor appetite, unexplained aches and nausea. As parents, this can be a stressful time too, wanting to support our children as best we can; and knowing that if not handled effectively, exams can be damaging to mental health. But the good news is that there is a lot we can do to help ease the pressure and simple strategies you can put in place that will give them the best possible chance of staying stress-free and doing their very best. IT’S GOOD TO TALK: about their exams and your own experiences, to let them know that everyone gets stressed and anxious about exams and that how they are feeling is completely normal. If you find face to face talking doesn’t work, going for a walk helps as it is less confrontational than chatting face to face. Take some time each day to check in and see how they are feeling to help prevent them bottling things up. SUPPORT THEM WITH THEIR REVISION: As busy parents, it is easy to forget that your child might need a little help, even the independent ones. Encourage and support them them to create a revision timetable with priorities so they can structure time for each subject with regular breaks. Offer to help where you can, test them or maybe even go over a past paper with them: it all helps. Encourage them to tell you if there is a subject in particular that they are worried about and talk through possible solutions such as speaking to their teacher. If they don’t want such help, maybe encourage them to revise with friends which can relieve stress as revision can be very lonely process. HELP CREATE A CLEAR DISTRACTION-FREE STUDY ZONE: Make sure your child has a place to work which is distraction free and conducive to concentration. This includes removing smartphones / distractions like social media distractions, which may be impossible and lead to more conflict, so perhaps limiting time is the compromise.


ENCOURAGE HEALTHY LIVING: This can be a challenge as they get older but is a time when we really need to teach them the importance of self-care as they will be in a far better position to succeed in their exams if they are fit and healthy. This includes: § A healthy balanced diet, lots of fruit and vegetables, drinking lots of water and, especially on exam days, having a good breakfast so they are able to concentrate and get through the exam without feeling hungry. § Avoid eating junk food and drinks containing high levels of caffeine as these things will only lead to mood swings, energy lows and general irritability. § Regular exercise which will help reduce stress, allow them to clear their minds and is the key to getting a good night’s sleep, especially if studying for prolonged hours. GET THEM INTO GOOD SLEEP HABITS: Getting teens, in particular, to go to bed at a reasonable hour is a constant battle; but as adults we know that with all of the physical and hormonal changes going on, they actually need more sleep. Instead of battling, try to find a middle ground, explain why sleep is so important, and if they won’t take advice, you could refer them to the NHS CHOICES website which outlines how much sleep children up to the age of 16 actually need. ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE SOME DOWNTIME: All work and no play is not a good thing and it is essential that they have some downtime - time out to relax, go out for walks, do some exercise, spend time with friends or just chill out. Their brains need a break in between studying and it will make their revision more effective. TELL THEM TO AVOID CRAMMING: Whilst it is a natural reaction to try and cram in as much last-minute information as we can before an exam it doesn’t work as our memories don’t work that way and our short-term memory can only hold so much information. DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF: it is okay to let some things slide during exam time like making beds or leaving things lying around on the floor. Whilst annoying, during exam times it is better to let it go and be more flexible before and during exams and then get back to a normal routine afterwards when the pressure is off. GIVE THEM A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL: Give them something to look forward to at the end of their hard work. It doesn’t have to be big or costly and could be as simple as a sleepover, day out with friends or a game of tennis. MINDSET AND POSITIVITY: Whatever happens, it is important that they feel it is ok to try their best, but if it doesn’t work out, that is ok too. Yes, exams are important but if it doesn’t go to plan, it isn’t the end of the world, they are not failures, and there are always other options. Above all, adopting a Positive Mindset and Try Your Best attitude will pay dividends and help build RESILIENCE as they grow into adulthood. Apart for doing the above, your child can also develop some self-help techniques which they can use to calm themselves when necessary like Diaphragmatic Breathing, ‘Total Tension Release’, ‘Relaxation Sanctuary’ and Mindfulness. For help and support with any of the topics mentioned, please get in touch.

Ghana: meeting the chocolate growers by Karen Downard, local Macclesfield Fairtrader

I love chocolate – eating it and selling it.

For 20 years I’ve been selling Fairtrade goods at church stalls and at fairs. Chocolate is always a top seller. And for good reason: it’s high quality chocolate and it’s guilt-free, not because it’s low calorie but because free of the exploitation and child labour that often go with cocoa farming. In 2015 I travelled to Ghana, with a group of other Fairtraders, to meet some of the farmers and find out what difference Fairtrade makes to their lives. We visited Kuapa Kokoo, a farmers’ co-operative, were shown how cocoa is grown and we talked with groups of farmers about their difficulties, successes and hopes. Cocoa pods are cut down from the trees using a knife on a very long stick. They are then cut open with a machete and the beans wrapped in banana leaves to ferment for 7 days. Then they dried in the sun for about another 7 days. During this time they need to be turned regularly. The trees have to be cared for, weeds removed and new tree seedlings grown. It’s hard work. Child labour is not allowed on Fairtrade farms. Kuapa Kokoo has sensitisation programmes to educate members and their child labour teams deal with any issues that occur.


The world cocoa price is very volatile but Fairtrade farmers have the protection of a minimum price and a Fairtrade premium is paid on top, currently $200 a tonne. Farmers decide for themselves what community projects to spend this on: examples are schools, toilets, water pumps, teachers’ bungalows, solar lighting training and income diversification. In Amankwaitia village they built a school because other schools were too far away for the younger children to walk too. They were proud of their children’s achievements at the school; they came 5th in the exams out of 125 schools in the region. Now they want to get some computers so the children could keep up with urban counterparts. Everywhere we went people asked us to promote the sale of more Fairtrade chocolate. The reason? Only a third of Kuapa Kokoo’s cocoa can be sold at Fairtrade prices; the rest has to be sold at world prices and doesn’t get the Fairtrade premium. Globally only 6% of chocolate is Fairtrade. Some of the farmers said they didn’t want their children to become cocoa farmers because they wouldn’t be able to earn enough. Fairtrade is enabling them to improve their lives but slowly and we sensed and understood their impatience. Does Fairtrade make a difference? Yes, it does. Do cocoa farmers get a living income? No, they don’t. Conclusion: we need to eat more Fairtrade chocolate. That won’t be too difficult! See the Community Noticeboard for details of an opportunity to hear more of Karen’s trip

We have an announcement …. a BIG announcement!! You might not get the next issue of Local People through your door!

Or, if you have picked this up from a collection point, you might actually get it through your own door next time ….

You see, we have decided to change the way we do things a little bit ….. There will now be 12 separate copies of LPM each year but you will probably only get 6 through your door!

This is because we are increasing our total distribution and are going to deliver to a whole load more homes (probably about an extra 10,000 in all, all local though, just filling in gaps!), so we really will have the BIGGEST DISTRIBUTION in just this area of any other local medium around …. BUT we are going to deliver this bigger distribution over two issues. For our advertisers, it will still be possible to advertise with us from just £30+vat per issue*! (* twelfth page mini ad, booked for 6+ issues) There will be now be TWELVE SEPARATE ISSUES each year with twelve different front covers, different free ads, different community news and different articles ….. and you will still be able to pick up a copy of the issue that hasn’t come through your door at all of the usual places - Town Hall VIC, library, station, etc, and our shop at the bottom of Mill Street. Or if you would still like the magazine to plop through your door every month (and there’ll be two extra now!), we will also be introducing a subscription service - for just £10+vat a year, we will post out the 6 copies that no longer get hand delivered to you, so you will never miss a copy of your favourite local magazine coming through the door! Please enquire for details! 01625 265551

SO … exciting times ahead, watch this space as they say!! But however we do it, we will always be your truly local magazine, published by genuinely local people for local people! And getting better all the time!! Please mention this magazine when responding to advertisements!
