Thinking WINDOWS? Thinking CONSERVATORIES? Thinking Price? THINK NO MORE!
A man found guilty of battery had such bad anger problems that he regularly frothed at the mouth during arguments, a court heard.
Alan Wilson, of 23, Waggs Road, Congleton, was found guilty of three counts of battery last Wednesday for attacks on his partner during angry exchanges at their home.
In three incidents in June and July last year, the 30-yearold threw blackcurrant in Faye Richardson’s face, hit her, gouged her eyes and pushed her through a bed.
He was found guilty in part ecause his girlfriend recorded audio footage from the incidents on her mobile phone. He was sentenced to 200 hours community service, a 12-month supervision order and regular meetings with a probation officer.
Deborah Byrne, prosecuting, described to South Cheshire Magistrates sitting in Crewe the first incident on 24th June. It happened after Miss Richardson asked the defendant why he hadn’t made her a drink: “The defendant blamed her and threw a glass of blackcurrant in her face. He then threw a glass of water in her face. She walked away but he followed her up to the bedroom where the argument continued.
“He pinned her to the bed, put his fingers into her mouth and pulled her lips apart before putting his fingers in her eyes. He then hit her forehead with the heel of his hands, knocking her backwards onto the bed. The victim went through the wooden slats of the bed from the blows. He also hit her three times on the left arm.”
The court heard that Wilson stayed in the room for two hours after the attack to calm down and then “acted as if nothing had happened”, asking if Miss Richardson wanted him to make her a drink.
Roger Badman, defending, told the magistrates that the defendant was a man with severe anger problems who would often “froth at the mouth”, but that he was taking medication and counselling to address his issues.
Wilson was given a police caution in January 2010 for hitting Miss Richardson during an argument at Manchester Airport on their way home from a holiday.
Chairman of the bench David Griffiths told Wilson: “Three separate violent incidents in a domestic situation is unacceptable. But we do note that you have made some effort to make improvements in that matter.”
Demanded In the incident on 26th June, Miss Richardson was due to visit friends in Blackburn while Wilson was at work. The prosecution alleged that he demanded she left her house key at home, but she told him she wouldn’t be able to get back in the house without them. The defendant bent her fingers back to try and wrestle the key from her hand and bit it when that didn’t work.
Miss Richardson again went upstairs to diffuse the situation but Wilson pinned her to the bed, hitting her on the shoulder before pushing her to the floor and allegedly hitting her with clothes. After the attack he smashed a photograph before apologising and promising to buy another one.
On 30th June, Miss Richardson left their house to live at the care home where she works. During her time away her grandmother died, so she visited her home in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. She returned to his home at around 8pm on 3rd July to collect some clothes, ignoring him in order to avoid an argument. Wilson “flipped at her” for ignoring him, according to the prosecution, and is alleged to have said: “I don’t care how many people you slept with in Newcastle.”
He then pushed her in the face, causing her to fall back and bang her head on a corner wall in the kitchen.
Mr Badman said the defendant was remorseful for his actions and would be ashamed to listen to recordings of the exchanges. However, he explained that Wilson denied hitting his partner with clothes and at times used measures, such as pushing her away from him, to deal with the “argumentative relationship”.
Mr Badman described the incidents as being less one-sided, saying that Miss Richardson had spilled the drinks over herself and that Wilson picked her up after “accidentally” pushing her through the bed.
Before sentencing he explained: “The defendant did not cover himself in glory during this time but shows genuine remorse and is known for doing good work in the community.”

Takeaway booze bid ‘could open floodgates’ fear
Granting a Chinese takeaway licence to sell alcohol could “open the floodgates” to underage drinking according to members of the Congleton Town Council Planning Committee.
Members of the committee voiced fears that a premises licence for New China could lead every other takeaway in the area to apply for a licence and allow easy access to alcohol for underage drinkers.
The takeaway, on West Street, Congleton, has applied to Cheshire
A new archdeacon will be living in Congleton
East Council for a premises licence to sell alcohol by retail from midday until 11pm.
Coun Bob Edwards, speaking during Thursday’s meeting, said: “Every other takeaway will apply for one if this is successful and takeaways are used by kids as well so there’s a grave danger that this could get out of hand and open the floodgates.”
Coun Ernie Clarke supported that view, saying: “It is inappropriate for a takeaway to act like an off license.”
Coun Denis Murphy pointed out that even coffee shops had to apply for a premises licence if they wished to serve brandy with their coffee. However, he emphasised that that didn’t mean he was supporting the application.
The town council moved to express its concern about the unsuitability of the premises licence application to Cheshire East. The consultation period for the application runs until tomorrow (Friday).
Mr and Mrs Bishop.
The Rev Ian Bishop was installed as archdeacon of Macclesfield in a service in Chester Cathedral on Saturday.
Mr Bishop, formerly the rector of Middlewich and Byley and rural dean of Middlewich, succeeds the Ven Richard Gillings in the role. Mr Gillings has retired and moved with his family to live in Scotland.
Originally from the West Country, Mr Bishop, (48), worked as a chartered surveyor efore ordination. He is married to Sue, a personnel manager, and they have three teenage sons.
The family will next month move to Sandbach Road, Con leton, which will be Mr
Bishop’s base as the archdeacon of Macclesfield. In his new role he will supervise parish priests and churches throughout east Cheshire.
Mr Bishop said: “I am very excited about becoming archdeacon of Macclesfield. Over the past six months since my appointment I have been learning about all the terrific work being done across the archdeaconry, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
At his installation service at Chester Cathedral, Mr Bishop preached from Matthew, ch 20 v 17-28, on the theme of ambition and service.
Burglar alarm rang for days
Alarm bells were ringing in Congleton last week — for over 20 hours.
Following last Wednesday night’s power cut which affected 1,791 properties at around 4pm, one burglar alarm — in the old council offices on Market Street — continued to blare out right through the night and until 2pm on Thursday.
A woman working in the building who did not wish to be named said the alarm was for the old payment desk on the ground floor. She said that when the electricity came back on, it activated the alarm.
She said that after attempts to turn it off failed because they didn’t know the code, the building’s owner, Cheshire East Council was contacted.
Peace was finally restored on Thursday afternoon.
A Cheshire East Council spokesman said: “One of our contracted engineers went out and switched it off at around 2 m.”
