IN this week’s edition of Quays Express (December 12), there are 22 pages filled with news, entertainment, features and sport of interest to readers from across the Greater Manchester region.
Our news section includes the touching story of three-year-old Heidi-Lou Decieco, a disabled girl from Swinton who was able to buy a new buggy to help her walk with £4,500 donated through a community fundraiser.
In features, we investigate how much of a boost Manchester’s escorts will receive over the festive period and the rise of steroid needle exchange in the city as well as getting an insight into the life of a professional shoplifter.
We spoke to last year’s X Factor finalist Fleur East ahead of the final of this year’s singing competition to see who she wants to win – and the singer also talks about her new album and appearing in Asda’s Christmas advert. There’s also a Christmas catalogue and you can see the best of Manchester’s Christmas lights.
In sport, Quays Express has an exclusive interview with Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash and a feature on Football League referee David Coote while we also spent time with boxer Matty Mainwaring ahead of the former footballer’s first fight this weekend.
