●● 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.
