WHAT you have been saying on our Facebook page: ●● In our February 4 edition we reported on the death of an admired doll maker Sara Doggart, aged 101. She fled both the Russian Revolution and the Nazis before settling in Macclesfield and started making Sasha Dolls, collectables now selling for up to £4,000.
Jacqueline Hadfield said: “What a lovely, clever, inspiring lady she was. I worked for her for three years and had such admiration for her. She was Russian but spoke French, German, English and Greek. RIP special lady.” ●● In our January 28 edition we reported on a nurse who helped find an African baby a new home. Jenny Parker, 21, raised £5,000 to help baby Kwesi.
Paula Johnson summed it up well when she said: “What a lovely kind selfless thing to do.” ●● We had plenty of snow-related stories, but the most controversial was about the number of schools which closed across the town.
Joanne Walsh said: “We walked miles to get to and from school with the snow going over the top of our wellies, good exercise as well.
“No need for closures.” ●● Also in our January 28 edition we reported on a schoolboy has embarked on an inspirational mission to help people less fortunate than him. Seven-year-old Archie Tomlinson from Macclesfield raised money for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital before his next charity challenge.
Rachael Caudwell shared Archie’s parents’ pride, and said: “Well done young man. Fantastic.”
