About Tameside – October 2013


Welcome readers old and new to our October issue of About Tameside.

This month we have a great selection of photographs from Denton Carnival which also included a special appearance by Teddy Tameside in the parade. Ever fancied learning to ride a motorcycle? Well we were lucky to be invited to try a CBT course and our willing victim Cheryl Mellor found herself in the expert hands of Road Rider Training based in Audenshaw.

We also have our first ‘junior’ reporter this issue with a special feature on Halloween by Charlotte Hall from Flowery Field School. If you would like to do a special junior report for the magazine please get in touch from your school or college by emailing

Exciting developments for Ashton-under-Lyne too with the arrival of Metrolink services on October 9th and an exciting Christmas Entertainment programme organised by Ashton Town Team. Read more about these in this issue!

Don’t miss your chance to enter our special photo competition when your picture could be the cover for our January 2014 issue – find out more on page 8.

Hope you have a terrific Halloween
Kevin Taylor
