Oldham Advertiser - - #OLDHAMLIVE -

Nether­lees, Lees, was is­sued with the sum­mons on Mon­day and is due to ap­pear at Old­ham mag­is­trates on Oc­to­ber 10 in relation to 29 al­leged of­fences of sex­ual as­sault.

The al­le­ga­tions re­late to claims of sex­ual abuse at St Martin’s pri­mary school in Fit­ton Hill be­tween 1979 and 1982. THE com­mu­nity have come to­gether to re­mem­ber one of their own with a Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ing.

Staff and cus­tomers at Aaron J Wines, on Owler Lane, Chad­der­ton, have or­gan­ised the char­ity af­ter­noon in mem­ory of Ann Beck­ett.

Ann worked at the shop for 13 years but sadly lost her bat­tle with pan­cre­atic can­cer in July.

A spe­cial cof­fee morn­ing in her hon­our is to be held this Satur­day from 11am.

Her hus­band George, said: “This is to cel­e­brate Ann’s life while sup­port­ing the nurses who helped main­tain her dig­nity right to the end.

“It’s quite mov­ing that her old col­leagues, friends and cus­tomers have done this for her and I’m re­ally touched by the sen­ti­ment.”

Ad­mis­sion to the event, which will in­clude a host of stalls, raf­fle, tea and cakes, is free.
