ROYAL HON­OUR

THE Mayor of Mac­cles­field has been recog­nised in the Queen’s birthday honours list for ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.

Coun Alift Hare­wood-Jones, who was in­au­gu­rated as mayor in May, is now a proud Mem­ber of the Order of the Bri­tish Em­pire.

Coun Hare­wood Jones MBE was born in Guyana and came to Mac­cles­field to train as a mid­wife.

She be­came a Labour coun­cil­lor in 2001 and, with the ex­cep­tion of two years, has rep­re­sented the West Ward, now known as West and Ivy, ever since. She is a school gover­nor at St John the Evan­ge­list C of E Pri­mary School, chair­man of Mac­cles­field Pi­o­neer­ing Women, Open Spa­ces and the Mac­cles­field Almshouses Trust and pres­i­dent of the Mac­cles­field Male Voice Choir.

She said: “I feel that a di­a­logue with the com­mu­nity is the best recipe for clear­ing the air be­tween gen­der, race and age.”

CASE DIS­MISSED

Mac­cles­field mag­is­trates court dropped the case as a re­sult of in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence.
