It’s all happening… (part 2)

4 Dec

Following from my last post and from my facebook page…

All go at the working men’s club

Saturday 8th December sees a members’ kids disco there from 2pm – 6pm. Tickets are only £3 per adult £1 per child. Maximum age 10. Tickets on sale now. I know you’re thinking the same as me, why isn’t there a place that plays Taylor Swift’s We are never ever getting back together on repeat for four hours on a Saturday afternoon? I don’t know but I wish there was.

If a kids disco isn’t what you’re looking for, then on Wednesday 12th December, they’re also holiday a ladies only Ann Summer’s event. There’s also a female comedian performing (her own material, not with the merchandise – I think) and tickets for the event cost £3. Available from HWMC now.


Kutz hairdressers in Reddish are doing an offer of COLOUR / FOILS cut & blow for only £30. I have no idea at all what this means as I’m bald. However, if you want more information then contact them on 0161 480 4065. The first person to go on their facebook page and then e-mail me with a funny comment such as “don’t worry Jez, they also to stitch in hair extensions LOL” wins a rubbish prize from my desk. Currently looking like a jar of aniseed rock purchased in late 2011.

Jennifer Edwards hairdressing

Seeing as we’re already talking hair, Jennifer Edwards Hairdressing have sleep in rollers back in stock. I have no idea what these are either. In retrospect, I should’ve found someone who knows about these things to do these posts. If you do know what sleep in rollers are and they sound like something you’d like, you can contact them on 0161 442 2124.

A job at the Arms

The Houldsworth Arms is looking for new staff. You need to be experienced, honest reliable and most of all flexible about your working hours as you will not have set days to work you must be able to change the kegs in the cellar. Please send in your cv and references.

Flower Power

If you’re feeling all festive, then Ali’s florist, 583 Gorton Road are doing Christmas wreaths. She says ‘all our holly wreaths are handmade.We make well over 300 and we always sell out every year,so please order your holly wreath or call in to collect. Prices same as last year.All wreaths are dressed, if you want plain one just request we can arrange that, no problem SMALL £8.99 MEDIUM £11.99 LARGE £14.99 LUXURY £19.99’ Call 0161 223 4477 or visit their website for more info.


Again, if any of the businesses featured above fancy saving me loads of time by getting a business profile or simply e-mailing in their news that would be fab.

It’s all happening…

4 Dec

So many things to catch up on in Reddish at the moment so please accept my apologies for those that I have missed/forgotten. If you have something you want me to put up here then please e-mail

Jimmy Cricket

Now, I remember Jimmy Cricket vaguely from being a child. If anyone can remember more than I do then you’re in for a treat. Jimmy Cricket is performing this Thursday 6th December at St. Joseph’s Hall. Full info found in the badly taken photograph below.


Reddish Villa Cabaret Night

If Jimmy Cricket wasn’t enough excitement for you, then on Friday night, there’s a cabaret night with disco being held at Houldsworth Working Men’s Club. Tickets cost £3 each or 2 for a £5. The best part is that all proceeds go towards Reddish Villa Junior Football Club so you get to be entertained and help the local community. Full info here.

Community Calendar

Cllr. Kate Butler has finally completed work on her community calendar and I have to admit, it’s ace. Far better than what I had envisaged! So, if you want to know what’s going on locally, I suggest you check out

Spirit of the Forest

If you’re recovering from the shock of Jimmy Cricket turning up in Reddish then you might be equally surprised to heat that Reddish has a shop specialising in Witchcraft?

Spirit of the Forest, located at 446 Reddish Road, serves all your witchcraft needs. Now, I’d give you more information on it but the website has a really bad font that hurts my eyes and a video that plays on the main page. These are up there alongside my pet hates. If it is something that would interest you, check out their website here.

This concludes part 1 of the update. Part 2 involves me sifting through all of those profiles for local businesses that are set up as friends profiles. You know who you are!
