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.

Rochdale Fire Brigade Station

A Firefighter’s Story

By Councillor Shaun O’Neill

“I’m into Something Good”

The sixties hit song by the Manchester pop group,

Herman’s Hermits, could be the background music to

the long awaited opening of the Fire Brigade Museum

on Maclure Road.

The Fire Brigade Station first opened in 1933. An eight

bay appliance room with the Municipal Ballroom on the

first floor. In 1964 the Council had booked Herman’s

Hermits to appear and following the song making

number one the 4s 6d (23p) tickets had sold out! Sadly,

in 1974, with the merger of all the local Fire Brigades into Greater Manchester

the Ballroom was converted into offices to accommodate the new C division HQ.

Now as a firefighter based at the Maclure Rd site, stories of a resident ghost were bandied

about, usually on the long night shift and the normally fearless firefighters would never

venture upstairs into the former dancehall alone.

But with the conversion work removing the false ceiling and exposing some of the original

Art Deco features I think it’s a safe bet that the resident spirit has been freed. And soon you

can take a look for yourself and admire this historic building which now houses a fantastic

experience of the Fire Brigade’s journey through the decades of time.

A big thanks to Bob for supplying the photos and watch out for the “Fireground” official

opening and who knows maybe Herman’s Hermits might make a comeback!

Until next time, Stay safe.

Thank you and best wishes.

Councillor Shaun O’Neill

Labour, Healey Ward.

UPDATE FROM YOUR LOCAL GROUP

Friends of Syke

and Cronkeyshaw

It’s been a busy few weeks for the Friends of Syke

and Cronkeyshaw (FOSAC).

The group was formed by local residents to promote, protect and enhance green

spaces in Syke and Cronkeyshaw.

Since the last update, the Friends have

a new logo and have started some

new projects.

The friends group held a competition

for local children to design a new logo

for FOSAC.

The winner was Amelia Newbury of

the 40th Rochdale Scout Group.

Our chair Tricia Ayrton presented

Amelia with a prize (a £10 voucher) for

coming up with the winning design.

Tricia said: “I am very thankful to all

the children for coming up with some

brilliant designs. It was so hard to

choose. Well done to Amelia for

coming up with an outstanding logo

which are proud to have.”

Another project the Friends

group is kicking off is turning

the old spiral sandpit on Syke

Common into a community

herb garden.

Tricia is pictured with Amelia and Friends member

Richard Lord.

The Council’s Environmental Management have kindly agreed to clear it and fill it

with fresh topsoil and then the friends will plant the herbs in autumn.

The scope of the friends group includes Limersgate from Iron Waters Bridge to

the common and across the common to Heights Lane.

It also includes the entirety of the common (and the pond) from Syke Chapel to

Heights Lane. Finally, the scope includes Syke Wood and the Joy Street Greenway.

For more information about the group contact tricia.ayrton@gmail.com

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

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

Syke Walk & Talk Group

C I R C U I T O F W A R D L E

An easy level walk

of about 4 miles.

Heading north from Syke Chapel take

the first lane on the right. This is Ring

Lows Lane.

Continue up the bank until you reach a path,

turn right along the path which you follow

until you reach Rydings Road where you

turn left and after a few yards turn right

down a flight of steps to Rydings Dam.

Continue along the lane passing Syke Farm

on your right. A little later the lane bears left

and then forks. Take the right fork.

Continue until you reach a sharp left turn.

Do not turn left. Cross the stile in front of

you and continue along the path crossing

a second stile. Ahead of you is fairly steep

slope. Descend the slope which can be

slippery in wet weather. In front of you is a

stream, the Fanny Brook, which is crossed

by a stone slab slightly to your right.

Follow the path in front of you which leads

along the north side of the dam and finally

crosses a bridge onto Lawflat and then to

Wardle Road. Cross the road and then onto

a footpath in front of you.

Turn left into Elm Grove. Continue along

Elm Grove until you reach number 13. A

footpath takes you between the houses

onto Birch Road. Turn right and after a short

distance left into Westmorland Drive. Take

the right fork onto Birch Hill Lane. Follow

the lane until you see a signed footpath

to your left and take this path which leads

along the back of the houses as far as

Wardle Fold. Turn left and walk down the

road towards the Globe Inn. Facing you is

Wardle Methodist Church. Cross the road

into Knowl Syke Street with the church on

your left. Continue along the street until

you cross the newly restored bridge which

crosses the Knowl Syke Brook and then

turn left onto Clough House Lane.

Take care particularly in wet weather as the

path can be slippery and there are some

steep falls on your right. At the end of the

valley you will meet another path and turn

right. This path is the one you came along

when going towards Wardle.

Continue along the path but instead of

turning left to cross the Fanny Brook by the

stone slab continue along the path crossing

the stream further west either by the ford

or the plank which has been laid across the

brook. The route will take you through a

small copse to join Dewhirst Road just north

of Syke Chapel.

Follow the lane until it starts to bend to the

right. On your left you will see a short track

leading to a gate. Go through the gate. The

path isn’t very clear but keep to the right

following the line of the fence in front of

you. Cross the first stile on your right and go

through the gate in front of you. This leads

to a narrow path along the left-hand side of

a valley.

The Syke Walk and Talk group was formed

almost 15 years ago. We offer at least two

walks each of different lengths. Walks are

free to attend and led by trained leaders

with knowledge of the area.

We walk on Friday’s starting at 10am.

Please arrive at 9.45am for registration.

The meeting point is outside Syke Chapel

OL12 9TF.

Our walks utilise public footpaths and

roads around Syke. We walk all year round

and in all weathers. It is important to come

properly equipped with boots and suitable

clothing.

For further information please

contact Danny Smith our walk

co-ordinator at Living Well

telephone number 01706 751190.

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.
