What’s happening in Reddish

21 May

The more I look, the more I seem to find and, with that in mind, here are some of the upcoming events over the next week in the Reddish area.

Police surgeries

Want to know about what’s going on? Want to get involved? Want to complain about the person who broke into my mate’s car and didn’t actually steal anything a couple of weeks ago? Well, the local officers are kind enough to allow you that opportunity. You can do so here;

Mo’ money, Mo’ problems

Are you aged 16-19 and not in education, employment or training? Well, If you’d like to be in one of those three things then Stockport Council are holding an opportunities and jobs fair at Reddish Vale Young People’s Centre on Thursday 24th May, from 11.00am to 3.00pm.

There will be information and guidance on apprenticeships, college courses and current job vacancies. Local employers including Michael John and the Army, will be on hand to give advice to young people who are currently looking for employment.

Stockport colleges and apprenticeship providers will also advise on training opportunities and routes into employment through further education and training.

Reddish Vale Young People’s Centre is located on Dalkeith Road, SK5 7EY opposite Reddish Vale Technology College.

Yes, the army is a ‘local’ employer. Have you never heard of the battle of Lancashire Hill?

No Money, Mo’ Problems
If you’re a voluntary community group like ourselves then you’ll find that you don’t have a pot to …err.. you get the idea. However, if you’d like to try and raise some funding for your idea then there’s this
Stockport Council is urging community and voluntary groups to come along to a funding event.
The funding event is being held on Monday 28th May, from 1.00pm to 4.30pm at the Salvation Army on Short Street in Heaton Norris.

Community and voluntary groups will get the chance to meet funders and funding experts, take part in workshops on funding and fundraising, plus discuss their project ideas.

I know we’re Reddish News and this isn’t in Reddish but the local community groups could really benefit from getting some expert tuition on applying for funding or, like we were a month ago, just have a really awesome idea.

Car Booty

I love Houldsworth Shopping Village. There, I said it. I know that some of you will be reading this and thinking  “where’s that?”.  Well, you go past the main mill on Houldsworth Street and turn into the car park. Test your nerve by travelling up to the second floor in the lift and you’re presented with, well, just go and see it to believe it. I can’t think of any other place that could have a magician’s shop next to a taxidermist next to an upholsterers.

Either way, they’re now holding an indoor car boot sale every Saturday there. It’s free to visit and, for a limited time, free to run a table from. The car boot is on from 10-2 and if you’d like a table there then drop Colin a line on 07729 328496.

It’s also the place that’s holding the 3rd June Jubilee parade as mentioned here

Bake off

Despite upsetting us with the increase of 20p on the price of Rocky Roads, we’re huge fans of Classic Cakes.  We’ve briefly covered this before but now have the full details.

Two children can win their cake designed to be displayed at the shop in Reddish. PLUS, you win a £50 voucher towards your next birthday cake as a prize.

Base your design either on a 20cm round or square cake and make it age appropriate (4-7 or 8-11) and the closing date is on Saturday 2nd June.

Either give the entry to your school or drop it in at the shop. Please be sure to include your full name, age and the school you attend.

The winner will be announced at Reddfest on the 9th June.

Gonna Make You Sweat

We’re currently doing reviews of local gyms. We haven’t been yet, but have heard great things about Sweat Shed.

£40 will get you and a mate 4 weeks of punishment at their boot camp starting on the 4th June. They claim that recent customers have lost between 4 and 10 inches. If I do so, my panto career in Snow White is looking more and more likely.

We’ll be doing a full review of the place in the very near future.
