Nantwich Town 2–1 Frickley Athletic match report

Nantwich Town FC in The Dabber

By James Briscoe

Nantwich: Steven James, Andrew Pearson, Andy White, Andy Keogh, Alex Frost (c), Mat Bailey, Nick Haughton, Oliver Devenney, Aaron Burns (Steve Foster 65), Ben Deegan (Sam Wilson 79), Max Harrop (Alex Meaney 83). Subs: Josh Eastwood, Harry Clayton.

Frickley: Ben Simpson, Kaspar Amdal, Andy Villermann, Jake Picton, Sam Denton, Luke Jeffs, Fernando Moke, Joe Wilcox, Luke Hinsley (Gareth Grant 79), Gavin Allott (c), James Ghaichem. Subs: Stephen Gardner, Leon Osborne, Lee Stratford, Thomas Woodhead.

A red card for each team had less impact on the result than strong wind at the Weaver Stadium as a gust forced Frickley keeper Ben Simpson in to a mistake leading to Ben Deegan’s winner.

From word go it looked like the Dabbers had a plan to stop tricky Frickley winger James Ghaichem who won two penalties in the reverse fixture.

Nantwich Primary to celebrate half century

A Nantwich school turns 50 this year and they would love the local community to help them celebrate a very special birthday.

Millfields Primary School and Nursery first opened in January 1964 but the official opening took place in May that year.

And the school’s current acting Deputy Head, Samantha Williams, is hoping former pupils and staff may be able to help with the birthday celebrations:

“We would love to put together a display of photographs and memorabilia,” said Ms Williams, “and we’re hoping staff and pupils past and present may be able to help. If anyone has any photographs, school reports, artwork or trophies we would be delighted if they would allow us to borrow them so we can exhibit them in school as part of the celebrations.”

‘Make a difference to a child’s life’ urges Council during North West Adoption Week

Adopt North West – a collaboration between 22 of the region’s local authorities – has just launched a major new adoption recruitment campaign as part of the first ever North West Adoption Week.

The core message – ‘you can adopt’ – focuses on busting the myths around adoption. A TV, radio and online advertising campaign, which is running this week, aims to overcome common misconceptions which mean that some people – incorrectly – rule themselves out of becoming adoptive parents.

The campaign will highlight that it’s possible to adopt regardless of whether you’re single, over 50, already have biological children, gay, in full-time employment, a religious believer or whether or not you own your own home.

Age UK Cheshire to promote Let’s Talk Money Campaign

Age UK working with pharmacies

Age UK Cheshire has expanded its local campaign called Let’s Talk Money this week, which aims to reduce pensioner poverty in Wiltshire by joining forces with pharmacies across the county to spread the word. The main objective of the campaign is to increase the number of older people (aged 65+) claiming their entitlements, especially the benefit Attendance Allowance. This is a non means tested benefit to help people with a long term illness or disability.

Over the next few weeks, 38 Pharmacies in Cheshire, including The Co-operative Pharmacy, will be inserting over 60,000 local Age UK Cheshire leaflets into pharmacy bags of customers over the age of 65. Hopefully this will encourage the older population of Cheshire to come and have a chat with our friendly Information and Advice advisors at Age UK Cheshire to make sure they are getting everything they are entitled to.
