Medals for the Mercians ceremony will also be an honour for Congleton
By Tom Byrne The people of Congleton are looking forward to a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity when the First Battalion the Mercian (Cheshire) Regiment marches through town before a medal ceremony on Wednesday.
Jill Dolman, co-ordinator of Congleton Support Group, said that no similar medal ceremony had ever been held in a small town before and might not be again. Final preparations are underway for the return of the troops from Afghanistan. The regiment’s recruiting area includes east Cheshire.
The soldiers requested to march through Congleton after the magnificent support the town gave them during their tour, through the Jiffy Bag campaign and the send-off in June last year when crowds lined the streets.
Since then 12 have been killed in Afghanistan and many injured.
Mrs Dolman, who helped organise the campaign in which bags full of homecomfort items were sent out to the front-line troops, said she was sure Congleton’s residents and businesses would rise to the occasion and honour the returning heroes.
She said: “You can feel the atmosphere building already — everyone is buzzing about it.
“It’s a massive honour to have the regiment marching through town and even more so to be staging the medal ceremony here.
“It has never been held in a town before because it is always in camp or big cities.
“This might never happen again so I really hope people make the most of it and give the lads the welcome they deserve.”
The regiment dubbed Congleton “the little town with the biggest heart” for support of the Congleton Jiffy Bag scheme during its tour of Helmand.
The servicemen and women from One Mercian are recruited from Congleton, Crewe, Holmes Chapel, Middlewich, Macclesfield, Sandbach and across Cheshire West.
The battalion returned from the tour on Friday and have already held a homecoming celebration at their barracks in Catterick, North Yorkshire.
Mrs Dolman was grateful for the recognition of Congleton’s good work, saying: “We can definitely live up to the name again and I’m certain the support will be fantastic. It will be a proud day.
“If you have flags or bunting then bring them down.
“These guys have seen a lot during their tour and they’ve had a very tough time. They’ve lost 12 soldiers and many more have been injured. I think people want to say thank you for all they’ve done.”
Schools in Biddulph, which also sent Jiffy Bags, are sending pupils to the march and a local radio station will be broadcasting live from the town hall.
The march sets off at 2.45pm from the Fairground car park and will head along Mountbatten Way, Mill Street and the pedestrian area before attending the medal ceremony at the town hall at 3pm. The march is due to finish by 4pm.
Roads will close on a rolling basis, but High Street will be closed from 2.45pm for at least an hour. Car parking on Lawton Street from Last Orders to Kels will be suspended and there will be no access from Canal Street.
The Fairground car park will be closed to the public so it can cater for the regiment’s coaches and minibuses.
A private, ticket-only party is being staged at Rapier Star, Star Business Park, on Congleton Road, North Rode, immediately after the march for invited guests and the regiment.
Shuttle buses run to the party from Fairground car park after the parade and return at 8.pm, 8.30pm and 9pm.

‘Neighbours’ theme tune writer makes music for the Mercians
Pictured at a celebration meal at the Church House, Congleton, are, front, Jackie Trent with, back from left: landlord Graham Withers, Congleton town councillor Ernie Clarke, landlady Barbara Withers, Mr Fairclough, Mrs Dolman, Steven Ellwood, who organised the sale of wristbands to wear in support of the Mercians, and Shirley Ellwood. (“Chronicle” photo. 4403/10).
Top talent from Cheshire and Staffordshire joined forces last week produce a charity single for the Mercians.
In conjunction with the Congleton Support Group, radio DJ Paul Fairclough arranged for ewcastle-under-Lyme-born Jackie Trent, who co-wrote the “Neighbours” theme song, to be the driving force behind a new single.
Ms Trent wrote “Heroes” and with help from her friends including darts ace Burslem-born Phil Taylor, comedian Pete Conway, whose son Robbie Williams was born in Stoke-on-Trent, and local football layers, she recorded it at Orchard Studios, Oakhanger, near Alsager last week.
Mr Fairclough, an acquaintance of Ms Trent, said that even though she now divided her time between the Caribbean and Menorca, she was eager to help.
He said: “In my spare time I uild websites and I do the one for Jackie. My original phone call was, ‘tell me to take a running jump, as I’m going to be cheeky and ask you to do something.’
“My idea was to rerecord the ‘Neighbours’ theme and change it to ‘soldiers, everybody needs good soldiers’ but she told me where to go.
“I heard a piano in the background and asked her what she was doing and she said ‘I’m writing it now’.”
Mr Fairclough said he sent Ms Trent a package of what the support group had been doing and she put it together to fit the lyrics.
He added: “We wanted to get the soldiers involved but they couldn’t get back from Catterick so then we thought of calling on celebrities from Staffordshire and Cheshire.”
Mr Fairclough said he attempted to get RobbieWilliams involved but he was too busy reuniting with Take That and Stoke-born entertainer Jonathan Wilkes was tied up in pantomime.
Darts legend Mr Taylor told the “Chronicle”: “I had a great day at the recording studio and it was good to see some old faces from the world of football.
“I hope the single does really well and raises money for the charity.”
Mr Fairclough continued: “Everyone enjoyed themselves and had a good time as they all sang the chorus and Jackie sang the lead.”
He said support group co-ordinator Jill Dolman had brought photographs of the injured soldiers “and everyone saw the pictures before they sang so they had the right idea of what they were raising money for”.
Although the day ran smoothly, Mr Fairclough was nervous in the lead-up: “For me, it was a panic, I thought, if it comes together it will be fantastic but it was a bit last minute as to who would turn up. As soon as Jackie said she had booked her flight, it had to happen.”
Mrs Dolman said: “Paul has been a fantastic support to all the support groups but we have been working together now for the last few months and nothing is too much trouble.
“He is an amazing ambassador for the regiment.
All money raised will go to the 1st Battalion Mercian Regiment (Cheshire).
