Welcome to

our July issue

With Summer upon us and more of us

venturing outside, there’s plenty going on

in the local community so take a look at

our bumper ‘news and features’ section

from page 38.

The great news is that the long-awaited

Tour de Manc has been rescheduled to take

place on Sunday 5th September, full details on

pages 44-45.

Councillor Andy Kelly writes about the danger

of speeding through our towns and villages and

how you can help to tackle this ever-increasing

issue. Nigel Morrell also highlights the danger of

youngsters using local reservoirs as swimming

facilities and points out other factors to be

aware of both inside and outside the home

ensuring a safe and happy Summer, something

I’m sure we are all looking forward to.

There’s another great walk sent to us by

Milnrow Library Walking Group who continue

to meet every Monday morning at 9.30am in

Milnrow Memorial Park.

The highly active Milnrow WI have sent us

a delicious recipe for homemade lemonade,

perfect for those hot, lazy summer days in the

garden and even better with a measure of Gin

if the fancy takes!

Until next month…

In addition to the room build we can

needs. All you need to do is walk down

the garden path and enjoy (we can even

make you a path if you don’t have one).

The whole build can take as little

as three weeks from start to finish so

you can be in your room sooner than

you think.

any queries or questions before, during

or after the build as soon as possible.

Once you have got in touch with us our

aim is to make the whole experience

as quick, clean and easy as we can and

ensure you are as happy with the end

product as if we had built it for ourselves.

floor extensions onto existing

structures that in most cases

are not subject to planning or

building regulations. You could

have a completed extension in

less than a month.

darker areas and adapt any

lighting issues to compliment.

ARE YOU FED UP WITH CLUTTER?

DO YOU NEED MORE STORAGE SPACE?

Well the answer could literally be under your own roof!

For many home owners, the loft is an underutilised area because it can be difficult and

dangerous to reach. Rochdale based loft ladder installer Access4Lofts (whose slogan is

‘creating space the easy way’) can change all that, often in less than a day!

Access4Lofts provides a free survey and quote service so you can find out what is

achievable with your loft area.

The majority of properties have an access hatch to the space in the loft. Access4Lofts create

space the easy and affordable way. They can supply and install a new loft hatch and a safe,

sturdy aluminium loft ladder in your home in just one day! That means that your dark and dismal

roof space suddenly becomes a useful storage area for all that family clutter. “My experience

enables fitting the ladder and converting the access hatch, in double-quick time the space is

accessible and I leave no mess behind” explains Jack Ellis, Access4Lofts Rochdale.

For extra peace of mind, Access4Lofts is an approved Which? Trusted Trader which

means they have been assessed by Which? and passed their stringent checks. For added

confidence, they also have full public liability insurance, are DBS checked, and all work

carried out comes with a Lifetime Guarantee

To find out how Access4Lofts can create more space for you and your family or

to book a free survey and quote visit www.access4lofts.co.uk/rochdale or call

01706 509373. You can also find them on Facebook @Access4LoftsRochdale.

NO NEED

FOR SPEED

By Councillor Andy Kelly

Regardless of who I speak to

and regardless of where they

live in the borough- speeding,

or more accurately, reckless

driving and endangerment

is on their list of urgent

concerns in the borough.

I must hold my hand up and say that I have had point endorsements on my driving

licence in the past, but I’m not talking about drivers who are insured and taxed and go

over the limit by 10mph.

I’m referring to those drivers who use our streets as racetracks at all hours of the day

and risk damage, injury and death to themselves and anyone who might get in the way.

This week an opposition Cllr took the opportunity to write to the Chief Constable, the

Police and Crime Commissioner and Central Government about the need for more fixed

penalty cameras. I both support and applaud this measure. But it simply does not go far

enough. It is not a silver bullet solution for what is in fact a multi layered problem.

What can you do to help?

1. VOLUNTEER

2021 will see a new Community Speed

Watch group being set up in Milnrow and

Newhey that if all goes to plan, will have

the authority to issue warning letters and

with GMP help, issue fines and penalty

points. It will need volunteers to come

forward and give of their time to operate

the speed guns. And there is no use in

pointing speed guns at quiet times during

the day, the Speed Watch Group will be running checks in the evenings,

at night-time and whenever they get reports of reckless driving. Will you give an hour

to help the team?

2. HELP BUILD UP THE INFORMATION

Your local councillors will keep lobbying for more police resources for our area, but often

it is crime reporting that gets the funding. You can report incidents of reckless driving

via the GMP website. Also, try and get descriptions of cars and where possible, their

registration plates. Even if they are stolen cars or false plates, the police need to build up

an evidence base of what is going on and if and where cars have been stolen from

or plates duplicated.

38

To advertise call 07976 289967 or 07974 434793 or email sales@streetwisemag.co.uk


3. SUPPORT SPEED

RESTRICTION AND TRAFFIC

CALMING

Most car journeys made by people

locally will be less than 1 mile. A 1-mile

trip for the school run or to the shops

made at an average of 30mph will

take 2 minutes. The same 1-mile trip

at 20mph will take 3 minutes which is

60 seconds longer. Would it not make

sense to reduce the speed limits in

our villages to 20mph? For example,

the half mile strip of Milnrow village would take 15 seconds more.

There is also the opportunity to introduce more chicanes and street furniture, one-way

systems, or priority lanes. We need to think about how we design our communities

going forward.

4. IDENTIFY SPOTS WHERE THE POLICE CAN SET UP SPEED TRAPS

The police need to identify spaces where they can install allocated places to site police

speed traps. You will have seen them around the area- a marked rectangular police car

park space. Can you suggest places for more sites? This will increase the frequency

of speed traps in the area.

5. HELP YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLORS TO LOBBY FOR MORE RESOURCES

Public support through petitions, surveys, questionnaires, and the like will us build up

a case for funding, action, and prosecution. Throw your support behind the campaign

and help us to kill speed before someone gets killed.

Our commitment is to continue

to support the reduction of

reckless driving in whatever

way we can; lobbying the

police and decision makers,

buying the equipment for the

speed watch group, supporting

GMP with data and insight

and working with Council

safety officers to make sure

the correct resources are

deployed.

Milnrow Library Walking Group

Milnrow Memorial Park to Crompton Fold and return via Dunwood Park

This is a 4 1/2 mile walk our Group did on

May Bank Holiday. We were accompanied by

my grandchildren ages 6, 9 and 13, and they

thoroughly enjoyed it.

The walk is over field paths which can be muddy in

wet weather and there are a couple of danger points

so children must be supervised by responsible adults.

Wear good walking shoes or boots, and a walking

pole is recommended. OS sheet 81/91 and A - Z

Milnrow/Shaw overs the walk area.

The Route

Leaving our base at Milnrow Memorial Park take

the high path that extends through the trees, and

follow the single width track, between fields, that

emerges at Lower Bradley. Go down Church Street,

past St Thomas Church, then right down the steps

by St Thomas Primary School, emerging onto A640

Huddersfield Road. Go directly across the road and

proceed along Railway Street, over the Piethorne

Brook footbridge, turn right and continue down Two

Bridges Road to its junction with A663 Shaw Road.

Turn left and continue up Shaw Road passing the

ancient B C boundary stone and the modern Shaw &

Crompton boundary sign.

Take great care at this crossing, be alert and look and

listen and supervise children, as trams pass from both

directions, they are very quiet, frequent and travel at

fast speed.

Safely over the crossing brings you into the Old

Jubilee Colliery Heritage Site and Nature Reserve.

Turn right and proceed down the main track.

Then go left along the single width path marked ‘site

of Boiler House’ and past the sign of ‘Coke Ovens’.

Continue up the steps and path.

Continue along the A663 (now Milnrow Road) parallel

with River Beal, turn left over the river footbridge and

cross the Metrolink line on the level crossing.

The path zig zags up the wooded hillside emerging at

the junction of another path. Turn left and proceed

through a swing gate with waymarker signs for

Crompton Circuit and Oldham Way.

Proceed up the field path to gain a panoramic view of

Newhey, Milnrow and Rochdale with the hills beyond.

The path goes right, so following the waymarker

signs, go over a stile, along a single width path, with

steep drop on the left, and grazing meadow right, over

another stile and emerging onto a farm track at the

entrance to Stoneyhurst Farm. Go directly across

the track through a steel gate and continue along a

meadow path with stone wall on your right.

Crossing over go down Calf Hey Road onto Jordan

Avenue and follow the footpath sign that directs you

down by the Old Brook at the rear of houses on Jordan

Avenue. The single width path emerges on George

Street. Go straight across and with the sports field

on the left, emerge onto Milnrow Road A663. Cross

the road and proceed down Bridge Street over the

Metrolink footbridge to the entrance of Dunwood Park.

Continue along the path for about half a mile,

Crompton Moor is to the left with gorse, heather,

wiimberry and new tree plantations, emerging at the

Crompton Circuit Footpath sign adjacent to the Clay

Pigeon Shooting Range.

Proceed in the direction of Crompton Fold down a

very steep path between the trees emerging at Pingot

cottages.

Should this steep path prove a problem, then it can be

bypassed by diverting around the shooting range and

following the lane, right, down to Pingot. Go past St

Saviours Mission Church then right down Buckstones

Road B6197.

Continue through the park, emerging at Jubilee and

proceed back along Milnrow Road and Shaw Road to

Newhey and Milnrow Memorial Park.

Covid 19 Update

Until such time that the Government

Roadmap out of lockdown step 3 allows

us to return to the Library as our Walking

Group Base, we will continue to meet

outdoors every Monday morning in Milnrow

Memorial Park. Starting at 9.30 am ready to

set off at 10 am prompt. We are now able

to walk in larger groups of up to 30, but

still comply with Track and Trace and social

distancing rules. New members are always

welcome. The walks are free, and we aim to

provide suitable walks for all abilities.

A Great Summer awaits

if we all work together

The crisis over Covid is a continuing

challenge to our community. Many

of us have endured a year of massive

disruption to our daily lives, particularly

the younger members of our society

who are battling with disrupted

education and an uncertain future.

These are some of the reasons why all our

residents hope for a relaxing Summer and

a time to revive. We can achieve this with

care and consideration for each other, and

for the special environment in our locality.

For that care to continue, it is probably

worth reminding residents of some

elements which they might wish to consider

as contributions to a safe and successful

Summer for our whole Community.

facilities. Please take every opportunity to

reinforce the message about these perils.

MOORLAND FIRE HAZARDS

The last five years has seen a worrying

rise in the numbers of fires on local

moorland. These are disastrous events

for our natural environment (burnt

peat cannot capture carbon from the

atmosphere) and for farmers who make

their living by grazing our moors. Greater

Manchester Fire and Rescue find their

resources stretched to the limit if they

need to respond to such incidents.

Because of the fine weather, much of our

moor and woodland habitats are tinder

dry so please avoid using open fires or

USE OF HIGHWAYS AND RIGHTS

OF WAY

During the Summer months many of the

younger members of our community will

be enjoying cycling or horse riding on the

network of routes in our Ward. Busy roads

mean that these young people are very

vulnerable, and we need to give them the

appropriate space and time to learn the

necessary skills to stay safe. Please exercise

caution, particularly on our scenic and

narrow routes, where pedestrians and riders

are at their most vulnerable.

PROPERTY SAFETY AND SECURITY

We are approaching the key holiday season

and it is worth reiterating some seasonal

words of caution. If you are going on

holiday, please let your neighbours know,

and cancel any scheduled deliveries. Make

sure that the perimeter of your property

is secure, lock gates, sheds, and portable

equipment with suitable devices. Make

certain that your alarm and security lighting

is serviced and fully functional. Before you

leave, ensure that all doors and windows

are secure, to deprive opportunists of a

chance to ruin your holiday. Make sure that

vehicles are locked and secure and any

portable valuables are locked away.

SUPPORT OUR POLICE

We are fortunate to have a diligent and

dedicated team from GMP, supporting our

community. They can only function at their

best with your support. If you see crime or

suspicious activity, please take the trouble

to report it, either by calling “101” or using

the GMP online portal. The intelligence you

provide may not always yield an instant

result, but in the era of intelligence led

policing, it often assists officers to build a

picture and target resources.

IF WE ALL DO OUR BIT, WE CAN HAVE

A REALLY GREAT SUMMER.

Homemade

Lemonade

Something to make with the kids

during the school holidays and even

better if the sunshine stays with us.

Ingredients:

4 unwaxed lemons

75g caster sugar

10g Truvia calorie free

sweetener

1.6 litre sparkling water

Ice to serve

Method:

1. Use a vegetable peeler to cut all the zest

off the lemons. Be careful not to peel off

the white pith.

2. Cut the lemons in half and use a lemon

juicer to squeeze out the juice. Rolling

the lemons first and using at room

temperate will help get more juice out.

3. Put the juice and zest in a pan. Add the

caster sugar and 750ml cold water. Bring

to the boil and simmer for 15 mins.

4. Stir in the sweetener and then leave to

cool. Chill for at least an hour.

5. Strain through a sieve into a large jug.

Dilute with the sparking water.

6. To serve, add ice and a slice of lemon

for a refreshing summer drink

RESCHEDULED

The Tour de Manc is the biggest not for profit charity cycle ride in the UK and

supports hundreds of Greater Manchester charities and good causes. But, like so

many things the coronavirus crisis meant that the event had to be cancelled in

2020 and sadly postponed again in May 2021.

But the folks behind this tour have been hard at work behind the scenes, throughout

the lockdown. Now, with restrictions easing we have had the incredible news that

the Tour de Manc 2021 will be going ahead on Sunday 5th September, with a special

safety plan, to help ensure that riders, supporters and spectators are safe.

The route starts in Middleton before passing though 10 boroughs in Greater

Manchester. People wanting to see all the action can come along to Bowlee for the

start / finish, or to Norden which will once again be hosting the half-way pit stop in

this epic 100 mile challenge.

Councillor Peter Winkler, who coordinates the local leg of the ride said: “It’s always

a superb day, and the riders really appreciate a good cheer. We would welcome

anyone to join us in a socially safe manner to support the riders who are raising

thousands of pounds for various Greater Manchester charities and good causes.”

We are looking for volunteers to help man the Norden pitstop, if you

would like to get involved by helping out on the event day please

contact Peter on 07583 674 503. Lunch will be provided, and

volunteers will receive a special 2021 Tour de Manc Volunteers t-shirt.

Are you involved with

your local community?

Over the years we have supported many local community groups and causes in our

four magazines. In the Milnrow and Newhey magazine, these have included the many

walks organised by the Milnrow Library Walking Group who have benefited greatly

from the free publicity, attracting many new members to their group:

Since our Group’s formation in 2016, our profile has been greatly enhanced by the

publication of our walking articles in the Milnrow & Newhey Streetwise Magazine.

Many new members joined our Group having first read

about our activities in Streetwise. During the Covid-19

Pandemic, Streetwise gave us the means to keep everyone

informed of our activities based from Milnrow Memorial Park.

Thank you, Kate and Becky, for providing us with a valuable

community platform to extol the virtues of health, wellbeing,

and friendship, through the joy of walking. Keep up the

good work!

Geoff Ogden and Gweneth Smith

More recently, we have also worked with the Newhey & Milnrow ‘Protect our

Greenbelt Group’ by promoting their campaign against proposed building in the area:

By including our campaign updates in Streetwise each month, interest in

our group escalated rapidly and members on our Facebook and Twitter

accounts increased! Through the free publicity we received from Streetwise,

we were able to advertise our conferences, meetings, and community

marches against the building on Greenbelt.

Our fight so far has been successful with the removal of the Kingsway South

(Newhey & Milnrow) site from the GMSF and our cause has been greatly

helped by keeping the community involved through the magazine.

A BIG thank You to Kate & Becky for your continued help and support.

Save Our Villages ( Newhey & Milnrow) Protect our Greenbelt Group

If you are involved with your local community and would like to feature in the

magazine, please get in touch. It will reach 4,000 homes around Milnrow

and Newhey, and it won’t cost you a penny.

We look forward to hearing from you!

IN THE GARDEN

GARDENING TIPS AND ADVICE

FOR JULY

1. Water thoroughly once or twice a week rather than little and often – this encourages plants

to put down roots in search of water rather than coming up to the surface. Remember that

containers and hanging baskets need watering every day and sometimes even twice a day

if it is hot or windy.

2. Hoe beds and borders regularly to get rid of annual weeds like bitter cress and chickweed.

3. Keep your pond topped up with fresh water – a build-up of algae in warm weather can be

toxic, if not fatal for animals and marine life.

4. Pick sweet peas regularly – this is in effect deadheading and will ensure

continued flowering. Remember that sweet peas are thirsty plants so

keep them watered.

5. Deadhead bedding plants and repeat-flowering perennials, to ensure

continuous flowering.

6. Use a forceful jet from a garden hose to knock aphids off water lilies

and other garden plants.

7. Water Tomatoes and Peppers regularly to avoid blossom end rot.

LATEST PROPERTY UPDATE

PROPERTY UPDATE

Time is running out on the Stamp Duty Holiday as house prices hit

seven-year high. Tenants and landlords are to receive additional

support as restrictions ease.

STAMP DUTY DEADLINE

With the Stamp Duty Holiday deadline looming, we are advising

those with property sales in progress to push through completion

in order to take advantage of the potential savings, when in a chain.

The deadline for properties valued up to £500,000 is about to

come to an end on June 30th, however those with properties selling

for up to £250,000 have a little more time. The deadline for these

properties is the end of September 2021.

TENANT / LANDLORD SUPPORT

Renters will continue to be supported as national COVID-19

restrictions ease, with longer notice periods in place until at least

October, Housing Minister Christopher Pincher has announced.

As part of a phased approach, notice periods – previously extended

to 6 months as an emergency measure during the pandemic – are

now set at 4 months. Subject to the public health advice and progress

with the Roadmap, notice periods will return to pre-pandemic levels

from October 1st.

The current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions, introduced as an

emergency measure during lockdown, ended on May 31st. The

measures will ensure renters continue to be protected with longer

notice periods for the coming months, while also helping private

landlords who are highly vulnerable to rent arrears.

HOUSE PRICE HIKE

Annual average UK house price growth jumped 10.9% in May 2021,

marking the highest level in nearly seven years.

Nationwide said average house prices stood at £242,832 last month.

That was up 10.9% from the same month last year, or up £23,930

over the last 12 months. The figure was 1.8% higher in month on

month terms.

The property sector was helped by measures in the March Budget,

from an extension of the stamp duty holiday deadline, to a new

mortgage guarantee scheme to help people with a 5% deposit get

on the property ladder.

The ‘race for space’ continues and those moving or considering a

move, around a third were looking to move to a different area, while

nearly 30% were doing so to access a garden or outdoor space

more easily.
