Final version of Ted

A family pet cat has been missing for two months in the Greenfield area of Saddleworth.

Ted, a four year old pedigree British Blue Short-hair has been the Huzar’s family pet for three years and went missing on 7 October 2015.

The British Short-hair is the pedigreed version of the traditional British domestic cat, with a distinctively chunky body, dense coat and broad face.

He has distinguishing features, a short hair coat which is grey and he looks very fluffy, chubby cheeks and piercing bright orange eyes. However as he has been missing for two months now he may look thinner and fragile if seen on the street.

Ted lives with Alex, 21, and Joe, 23, Huzar who are brothers and Ella Clarke, 19, Alex’s girlfriend. Diane, 48, and Stephen, 53, Huzar are living in London at the moment for work but are deeply saddened by Teds disappearance.

The whole Huzar family have been getting involed looking for Ted. Diane Huzar has traveled 1200 miles between London and Greenfield to help her children look for the family cat.

The last sighting of Ted was around Berry Brow, which is five minutes away from the Huzar’s house off the private road of St. Mary’s Drive.

There had been a few sightings of a cat that met Teds description in the middle of October around Grayson Way, which is fifteen minutes away from the Huzar’s house. However Alex and Ella set up a cat trap the day after they heard news of the sightings, but there was no luck.

Shortly after this Greenfield encountered some torrential rain and gale force winds, Alex Huzar said: “Before we knew it it was bonfire night so we suspect that someone has taken him in. Probably a resident around the street where he was last seen.”

Diane Huzar added: ” Someone please keep an eye out for my best friend.

He won’t scratch or anything like that and unfortunately he doesn’t have any details on his collar other than a wee bell and a grey Loc8tor box.”

Ella Clarke commented on this and said: “As far as I was aware he could have been tracked down with this locator we had that Diana got but we soon found out that it was a pretty useless bit of equipment.

The tracker wouldn’t pick him up anywhere in the village and only had a 300m radius on it. If I would have known about that I would have made sure he was chipped.”

The family told us that he likes sitting in the washing machine and boxes, as well as pushing things off shelves. Diane Huzar added: “We can’t have ornaments around as he just swipes them off for the fun of it”.

Flyers have been posted around the town but despite their best attempts they keep getting ripped down. Alex and Ella have gone door to door with over 1500 flyers, costing over £60, to keep Ted on peoples minds and hopefully get him back before Christmas.

With Alex and Ella both working full time, accumulating 70 hours between them weekly, they are struggling to keep up with work and looking for their beloved cat.

Alex Huzar said: “We’re doing as much as we can outside of working hours but it is all taking its toll now.”

Since the beginning of October there have been six cats reported missing in the Saddleworth area.

If you see any cat which matches Ted’s description do not hesitate to contact Alex Huzar on Facebook/ ring 07415138329.

Final version of Council Demolition

On Monday 4 January the demolition of Ashton Under Lyne’s council offices begun.

The erect scaffolding and the crane could be seen from the top of Heartshead Pike and the dust cover was mounted as preparation to demolish Ashton Under Lyne’s council office block which has been there since 1982; once rebuild the land will be home to the council once again.

Dust filled the outdoor market but stall holders were out in high numbers for their first market since New Year.

However the same could not be said for customers, whether it be because of January blues or the bulldozing there were few shoppers around.

The rejuvenation of Ashton Market is showing as the new outdoor market stalls are coming to a finish after eighteen months work and the council buildings being revamped. By 2018 Ashton will have under gone a full transformation.

Final version of Noel

Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr both took to the stage at the Apollo in Ardwick for the Radio X Roadshow on 2 December.

The two legendary Mancunians took to the stage for a crowd of 3500 eager fans.

Johnny led the show singing classic tracks like Easy Money and Candidate with the occasional Smiths anthems like There Is A Light That Never Goes Out as the crowd sang back at him with smiles on each of their faces.

To end the night, the main act was Noel Gallagher, who saw his first gig. The Damned, at the Apollo when he was 13.

He played hits off his two solo albums, from the rock riff filled tune Riverman to his indie love song If I Had A Gun.

Inbetween his solo tracks he slid the occasional Oasis song in, Half The World Away and Champagne Supernova being just two of the six Oasis indie anthems he played.

For the whole night the crowd reacted enormously to these two world class acts.

I spoke to a fan outside the venue. Gary Saville, 47, engineer from Stalybridge said: “Tonight was one of the best gigs I’ve been to in a while.

Seeing Oasis and The Smith’s songs played live with my daughter who never got to see the two bands play was amazing but the highlight of the night for me was definitely There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

They are undoubtedly just as big as they were back then.”

Johnny Marr played his full UK tour in October and has no scheduled concerts planned as of yet.

Nicholas Bowe, 19, customer service assistant, Dukinfield said: “I missed his UK tour so to get tickets for this was ace! Radio X have really pulled one out of the bag gettting these two stars!”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be playing London’s Royal Albert Hall on 10 December, which will be their last concert in the UK until April 2016 when they return from their world tour.

Extra tickets were put on sale for their Royal Albert Hall show due to high demand. Tickets will be on sale 4 December for the show on 10 December. Tickets will be limited to two per person and will be printed with the bookers name on to stop touts getting hold of these tickets.

Fans can buy Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds 7″ vinyl of The Dying of the Light from 11 December which would make the perfect christmas presents for a fan.

Final version of Foodbank

Tameside hospital is the first in the UK to have a permanent food bank on site and have done this because of the significant increase during last year in suspected malnourished patients.

They are working with the Trussel Trust who have a network of food banks across East Tameside with over 400 emergency food banks nationwide providing emergency aid to those in crisis.

More than one in five, 21%, people in the North West have skipped meals, gone without food to feed family or relied on family and friends for food in new research released this week from Tesco.

“If there was no food bank I’d have to steal something to feed by family”, an anonymous food bank user from Dukinfield.

“You always think it wont happen to you…”, an annonymous food bank user from Stalybridge.

With a nationwide food collection at Tesco last year the equivalent of 2.4 million meals for people in need were donated.

This year Tesco are doing their Neighbourhood Food Collection throughout December.

Tesco in Stalybridge participated and their food collections where the public could donate food took place on 3, 4 and 5 December.

I spoke to Trisha Jarman who is the project manager for the Trussel Trust in East Tameside who said: “Some people gave trolly loads of food which is very humbling and each week the donation trolly is full which is fabulous for our organisation, whilst a small minority still disagree with the idea of food banks.

“Since 2014 on average we send 67.3 parcels to people per week, up 9% from last year, but since November we’ve had an increase of referrals which creates pressure on those in need and us for collecting the food.

“Christmas is a tough time and people need to know we’re here.”

Alison Bowe, 63 from Ashton Under Lyne is a volunteer with The Trussel Trust food bank said: “It’s such a great feeling giving back to the community.

Real people use our services and we make sure we deliver A* assistance to put them at ease through what could potentially be a tricky situation.”

Initially volunteers were all within the church community but with their project expanding as rapid as it has, the trust is now welcoming people from the general public to volunteer within their food bank donation, collection and distribution centers to keep numbers of volunteers up as referrals continue increasing.

To get involved you can apply via their website http://tamesideeast.foodbank.org.uk/get-involved or ring them on 01613397924.
