●● FAMILY in tribute to cyclist and Tytherington teacher Guy Wharton after road tragedy (website and Express, June 15) Jane Sutcliffe: My son wasn’t taught by Mr Wharton but from what I’ve heard from other people he was an inspiration to all that met him. James Henshall: There’s a Guy Wharton remembrance ride through Bollington on 31st July. Everyone’s welcome. Fiona Walton: Such a lovely family, so sad xxx Vivienne Landers: RIP I will be thinking of you all when on my bike. xx ●● SHOCKING image shows children risking lives at derelict Macclesfield mill (website and Express, June 15) Laura Parrin: What about sorting the derelict building out? Other than it being dangerous (kids will be kids... usually unaware of the dangers) it looks nasty! Accident waiting to happen! Lucy Loo: I think at 13 they are definitely aware of the danger but that’s why they do it.
It’s an adrenaline rush and they know they shouldn’t be doing it. Ian Thomas-Moore: This kind of stuff has been going on for years and you will never stop it. Gail Mclean: Kids have always done stupid things like this, I used to when I was a kid.
What’s needed is something for them to do instead of closing everything. Marie Beech: Knock it down! It’s an eyesore. Sharon Pollard: I thought Tesco wanted to knock it down and develop it but people moaned about that, so 11 years on its still the same, you can’t have it all ways, either build on it or keep the eyesore. Clare Bradley: Maybe taking note where their kids are would be a good step, second step the council making it safe and maybe a skate park or something for the local kids to enjoy. Lisa Marie Gosling: Teenagers, they should know better! But I do agree, should be completely demolished. Pete Watson: It’s about time something was done with it. ●● COUNCIL review could mean end of free transport for hundreds of pupils (website and Express, June 15) Eddie Murphy: I have no issue with children having to walk to school; it’s healthy, wakes them up and gives them time to socialise (away from their phones), however it is the council’s responsibility to ensure where they walk is as safe as can be! Lauren Whittaker: I wouldn’t let my children walk this way if they were old enough. I was mugged along Middlewood Way two years ago...that’s how safe it is! John June Heath: It’s never been right for children of seven to walk a mile on their own. ●● TV star Timmy Mallett visits Macclesfield (website and Express, June 15) Stuart Lawson: Played cricket with him a few times in Wilmslow by the leisure centre. Hilarious days. Andy Capes: Aye, seen him up at Wincle Beer Co, 31st May when I’d popped over to stock up, he wasn’t biking though, he was hiking. Dave Mock: In the Savage Chapel at St Michael & All Angels Church last Wednesday morning. Nicola Griffiths: Polly Weston – we missed him. Richard Platt: Knutsford art gallery on Thursday lol Morgan Jones: Rick Oliver your hero, the guy’s a legend. Larry Johnson Tallest: Still looks the same.
