|Petition to Stockport Council re: Stockport County F.C.||by ImposterSCFC (Member 10236021) on 12-Mar-2009|
I am writing to draw your attention to a petition to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council to provide more aid, assistance and support to the town's professional football team at a time when they are in real danger of going out of business.
Please go to the URL below and sign the online petition. Please also forward this to your friends, family and col
leagues.... more >>
Stockport County is an integral part of the community of Stockport. Not one single thing advertises the name of Stockport more than Stockport County. It is a source of great local pride. The club also do a tremendous amount of work in the community from soccer schools, school visits, to working with local NHS partnerships and working with people with disabilities. The club also adds a very large amount to the economy of the town, particularly the Edgeley area.
It is undoubtedly in the best interests of all of Stockport for the council to support and work with the football club more closely.
Losing Stockport County would be a massive dent to the town of Stockport.

Thank you for your time.

|Manchester Congestion Charge Scams||by David (Member 10233666) on 28-Nov-2008|
Exposed: The Greater Manchester Congestion Charge SCAM!
In order to support claims that the congestion charge is needed, traffic light signals have been altered to cause maximum delays, such as traffic jams (just take a look in your local area to see the proof before your eyes!). The signals are changing more frequently than ever before. Many areas that now have traffic jams that didn't previou
sly are actually DELIBERATELY CAUSED by the "Vote Yes" campaign. Then if they get the charge through, they can return the traffic signals to normal and claim "Hey presto, the congestion charge is a success!" This is dishonest, so how honest do you think they are about the charges? Remember, they said the charge would not be brought in in Greater Manchester had a better public transport system. Now they are saying public transport improvements will NOT happen until the charge is brought in.... more >>
If you don't want to be taxed yet again (whether or not you drive), I urge you to vote No.
I am not behind the Vote No campaign, but I am merely an ordinary member of the public and I have seen too many lies with the Vote Yes campaign, so I am exposing those lies as just that. Please vote no.
We are already taxed to the brink in Britain. This is yet another tax. Even if you don't drive, you will still HAVE TO PAY: because shops and businesses will be forced to put their prices up to cover the cost.
Zones, Times and Charges - up to £100 to drive to work every month
The Greater Manchester congestion charging zone takes in the entire inner M60 area. It will have two rings, you pay when you cross each one. Please visit: http://www.gmfuturetransport.co.uk/consultation/rings/ to see the rings.
Peak time charges
Crossing the outer ring inbound £2
Crossing the inner ring inbound £1
4PM - 6.30PM
Crossing the inner ring outbound £1
Crossing the outer ring outbound £1
That’s up to £100 every month or up to £1,200 a year if your commute takes you through both rings. For most of us, changing our working hours simply isn’t possible, so we will have to find an additional £1,200 just to drive to work.
With the average take home wage in Greater Manchester of around £1,200 a month, that’s a month's pay. That just can’t be fair or sensible when traffic hasn't increased on local roads in fifteen years and lower cost, environmentally-sound alternatives are still to be explored.
Why you should Vote NO to the Congestion Charge
It could cost you up to £1

|THE BENNETT FAMILY||by Johnh Bennett (Member 10075013) on 7-Nov-2007|
I'm looking for anyone who knew the Bennett family, who lived at 78, Higher Bents Lane, Bredbury, and later, 3 Meadow Close, Woodley.
There were several scandals involving my family, which occured between 1952-1962 approximately.
I have never been able to get to the bottom of what exacly occured as both the family,and its history, are fractured.
The family names are: my late father, John B
ennett SENIOR,worked at Bredbury steel mill and Redfearns, my late mother, Joan Margaret, worked at various mills, Jacqueline and Joyce, who attended Barrack Hill school, and me, John, attending St Marks primary very briefly.... more >>
I remember Mrs Stewart at St Marks, Mr Thorpe,headteacher, neighbours Mrs Atney and her son, David, Mr and Mrs Pownall, Mr Whitely,Mr Hamner, and my great friend at the time, Graham Heywood, same age as me who also attended St Marks.
The Meadow Close house was at the time that the farm was still there, the two large hills that are now houses,and the loral shop, URMSONS.
There was some sort of court case and scandal concerning my late father, yet I was too young to take it in-I know we had to move house many times over the years.
Anyone who knew the family at the time, please contact me, preferably by emai in the first instance, and any information will be gratefully received.
