Handy Ladies

Handy ladies was set up 4 years ago, designed for people who want to clean or do maintenance on their houses but don’t have the time to shop around for a multitude of tradesmen or women.  Two ladies started this journey and they decided that they would never let any of their customers feel vulnerable whilst meeting a builder or trades people, so they always try to send two people. Their business has developed and grown over the years and we now offer an extensive range of services to help everyone.

Handy Ladies have worked closely with Healthwatch Stockport since the epidemic began and we want to thank them for the great job they have done since the 'lock-down'. 

You can visit the Handy Ladies website here.

Since the beginning of the lockdown they have been preparing and delivering hot meals and care packages to people throughout Stockport. Not only do they prepare the food, organise deliveries and fund raise they do it all with a smile :)

Dale Scott Bailey 

Dale Scott Bailey was nominated for a community hero back in June it gives us great pleasure to announce him for this month. From all of us at Healthwatch Stockport we would like to say thank you and that you should be proud for all that you do. 

You can find out exactly why he got nominated below. 

Dale is my neighbour and one of the nicest most pleasant person you could meet. He is the registered full time carer for his disabled wife Denise. He does the housework, organising medication, taking her to medical appointments, cooking and shopping. He also tends to his disabled daughter who lives six miles away by taking her shopping, to any medical appointments and collecting her mediaction. He plays with the dog and takes him for walks without fail every day whatever the weather or health. He is very laid back and doesn't moan at all even-though he is absolutely worn out.

Nominate a Community Hero

Do you know an individual that has gone above and beyond? We are still taking nominations for local community heroes. We hope to be publishing all the stories and letting you know about all the community heroes next year.

Sue Carroll

Sue does bundles of hard work behind the scenes and Sue even managed to pull it out of the bag and win the Health Quiz we ran for Macmillan Cancer Care. Which raised over £100.

Thank you Sue for all our hard work it doesn't go unnoticed.
