Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

AN Olympic gold medal­list will be the guest of hon­our at the open­ing of the town’s new­est su­per­mar­ket.

There will also be a ‘golden ticket’ event at the new store, with the first 100 shop­pers get­ting a golden en­ve­lope con­tain­ing a prize.

Aldi, on Lon­don Road South, will be of­fi­cially opened on Thurs­day (Fe­bru­ary 18) .

Bri­tish cy­clist Ja­son Kenny, who claimed Olympic gold medals in Bei­jing and Lon­don, has been in­vited along to the store as part of the chain’s on­go­ing part­ner­ship with Team GB.

He will also be help­ing to hand out the golden en­velopes to the first 100 peo­ple in the queue.

Cus­tomers will be in with the chance of win­ning a 55-inch TV, an Aldi ham­per, Smart­phone, HD ac­tion cam­corder and bags of Aldi shop­ping, as well as a num­ber of vouch­ers to spend in store.

David Styan, store man­ager, said: “There’s been a lot of ex­cite­ment in Poyn­ton around the new store, and the team and I are look­ing for­ward to meet­ing our new cus­tomers. We’ve got some great golden ticket prizes up for grabs on the morn­ing of the open­ing, and we hope cus­tomers take ad­van­tage of the ‘Spe­cial­buys’ on of­fer dur­ing open­ing week.”

As part of its ar­rival to the town, Aldi has also made a spon­sor­ship deal with Poyn­ton Cricket Club. There are also 12 jobs at the store still avail­able, with 10 store as­sis­tant posts and spots for stock as­sis­tants.

The school re­ceived a ‘Good’ rat­ing in its De­cem­ber Of­sted in­spec­tion and Mr Rut­ley met with the head­teacher, David Waugh, to dis­cuss the work the school is do­ing to con­tinue to build on its progress.

Dur­ing his visit he took a tour of the school’s fa­cil­i­ties and vis­ited the new restau­rant, which caters for 700 pupils a day and has proved to be pop­u­lar with pupils and helps pro­mote the school’s healthy liv­ing ini­tia­tive.

Fol­low­ing the visit, Mr Rut­ley said: “The re­cent pos­i­tive Of­sted in­spec­tion re­port is en­cour­ag­ing news and I would like to con­grat­u­late all pupils, staff and gov­er­nors on this real achieve­ment.

“It is good to see the school mak­ing con­tin­ued pos­i­tive progress, and I look for­ward to keep­ing in touch with Mr Waugh and the school in the months ahead.”
