About Oldham Magazine

About Oldham – January 2014

Happy New Year from all of us at About Oldham and look ahead to see what 2014 will bring. We know Metrolink services will be starting in the town centre itself soon and the hope that this will bring much needed shoppers to the independent traders on Union Street, Yorkshire Street and beyond. One of our features this issue looks a few of the traders on Yorkshire Street and details from the council on how plans are being made to improve these areas. Henshaw Street also has the spotlight thrown on it this issue to highlight the fantastic range of businesses in this area of Oldham.

We also look back at the busy Doctor Who event held in Oldham back in November and also the Remembrance services. We meet Ian Dunkerley, the chairman and co-founder of Santos AFC and also chat to young DJ James Barry-Williamson. It’s also great to highlight the strong community spirit demonstrated by the traders in Shaw who feature on the cover of this issue.

If you have listened to The Car Guru on Revolution Radio then take a look at Paul’s new motoring column in the magazine.
