Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

A FAM­ILY fac­ing evic­tion have spo­ken of their fear of be­ing evicted af­ter the dead­line for them to leave their home passed.

Stu­art and Deb­bie Parkin­son ap­pealed for help in the Ex­press three weeks ago af­ter their land­lord an­nounced he was sell­ing the prop­erty on Wilt­shire Close in Up­ton Pri­ory.

The fam­ily of 10 were is­sued an evic­tion no­tice but were un­able to find a place big enough be­fore the dead­line on April 22.

De­spite be­ing given three ex­tra days to move out the Parkin­sons failed to se­cure a new prop­erty.

Stu­art and Deb­bie say the land­lord is en­ti­tled to evict them, but they have no op­tion but to stay put with their eight chil­dren who are aged be­tween 18 months and 17 years old.

Deb­bie, 40, who is a full time mum and carer for her dis­abled daugh­ter, said: “We have been fran­tic look­ing for a place to live.

“We were given more time and we thought we had the per­fect house only for the land­lord to back out. “It was heart­break­ing. “The ad­vice we are be­ing given is that we should stay where we are or we’ll be mak­ing our­selves home­less.

“The only op­tions we are be­ing given is a house out­side the town or a hos­tel in Roe Street.

“I’m ter­ri­fied that the bailiffs are go­ing to come and turf us out on the street.”

Stu­art works at Adam­ley Mill in Lan­g­ley while for­mer child­min­der Deb­bie is a stay-at-home mum. Any­one who can help the Parkin­sons should con­tact Deb­bie on 07702 811835.

The land­lord of the prop­erty was un­avail­able for com­ment as the Ex­press went to press.
