Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

A TEAM of sand­wich mak­ers have won an award which cel­e­brates the best butties in the busi­ness.

Brother and sis­ter Si­mon and Jo We­selby and their friend Dave Freel, from Livesey’s Del­i­cates­san and Cof­fee Shop, have won a gold award in the Bri­tish Sand­wich As­so­ci­a­tion’s in­dus­try awards known as the Sam­mies, in the cat­e­gory for in­de­pen­dent cafe re­tailer.

The gold now sits along­side the other awards that they have picked up since set­ting up the busi­ness, on High Street, Bolling­ton, four years ago.

Si­mon said: “The Sam­mies are de­signed to pro­mote the very best in Bri­tain’s much loved sand­wich.

“We were judged against the na­tion’s finest sand­wich mak­ers and are proud of this award. We nar­rowly missed out on the Plat­inum award.

“Our sand­wiches are made us­ing the finest in­gre­di­ents, of­ten lo­cally sourced. Over the years we have be­come a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for YOUNG air cadets rep­re­sented Bolling­ton to take part in a spe­cial mil­i­tary ser­vice.

The young­sters from 236 Bolling­ton Squadron Air Train­ing Corps joined rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Bolling­ton branch of the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion and the Royal Air Forces As­so­ci­a­tion at the event to mark the 75th an­niver­sary of the Bat­tle of Bri­tain.

The ser­vice took place at the na­tional war me­mo­rial at Capel le Ferne in Kent.

Prince Michael Duke of Kent took the royal salute at the ser­vice.

Deryck Sut­ton, who is our hun­gry cus­tomers.

“Peo­ple in Bolling­ton don’t have to travel far to find out what the best sand­wich in the UK might taste like.”

It all started af­ter Jo and Dave shared a love of good food. Dave was a con­tes­tant on the first se­ries of TV din­ing show Come Dine With Me.

Si­mon said: “Livesey’s was set up by my sis­ter Jo and I here in Bolling­ton, ably aided by our friend Dave.

“The idea of the busi­ness was pow­ered by Jo and Dave’s love of good food. They sold me the idea and I put up the ini­tial fi­nance. Un­til re­cently I have been work­ing in the aerospace in­dus­try in France but now I’m back home to help out.

“We of­fer eat-in and take-out drinks and food plus a cater­ing ser­vice for events. We aim to of­fer ex­cit­ing flavours and vari­a­tions on tra­di­tional dishes from around the cor­ner and the around the world but wher­ever we can use prod­ucts from Bolling­ton.

“To make the pre­fect sand­wich you need chair­man of the Bolling­ton and Dis­trict branch of the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion, said it was a proud mo­ment for the young cadets.

He said: “The weather was most un­kind, wet and windy and all fly­ing dis­plays were can­celled, but de­spite this more than 4,000 peo­ple had a re­ally good day.

“It was a long trip down there for the rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Bolling­ton but it was most worth­while.

“It was a proud mo­ment to have the stan­dards rep­re­sent­ing the groups from Bolling­ton tak­ing pas­sion, qual­ity and ex­per­tise but we like to give our cre­ations a bit of out­ward char­ac­ter too. We give them names like King Kong or Hum­mus Be Jok­ing and with a lit­tle ex­tra at­ten­tion to pre­sen­ta­tion we have some­thing that de­lights our cus­tomers.” part in this an­niver­sary event.”

The Bolling­ton Squadron Air Train­ing Corps aims to give mem­bers aged be­tween 13 and 20 years ac­tiv­i­ties to en­cour­age an in­ter­est in avi­a­tion and the Royal Air Force, pro­vide train­ing which will be use­ful in the ser­vices and civil­ian life and en­cour­age the spirit of ad­ven­ture, as well as de­velop qual­i­ties of lead­er­ship and good cit­i­zen­ship.
