I have just been contacted by Steven Wilson who is a relative of Mike Kelly a Mancass member. He has asked me to pass on news of Mike’s death to former colleagues.

He died from poor health On the 14th April with heart conditions and not CV19.

The funeral wii be at Dukinfield Crematorium next week.

wreath.jpg Farewell Brian Warren
  Jessica Warren contacted us about her Dad's death

My Dad, Brian Warren sadly passed away last Monday (the 16th March). He had been poorly for a few months but his passing was sudden and unexpected - I have only just managed to get access to this site to inform you.

My Dad worked in Dial House in Manchester for many years, all he ever did was tell us stories about his days as BT Engineer and his escapades with ‘the lads’.

Due to the nature of our current situation there will be no funeral, once the restrictions have been lifted we will be arranging a memorial service for people to pay their respects. I will post the details on here as soon we have them.

Stay safe and thank you :)

question.jpg Corona Virus Symptoms
  As the covid-19 pandemic starts to take hold, How do you know if you have it?

Despite all the measures you can take it is inevitable that millions will catch the virus.

Indeed from a scientific point of view the only way that will stop the virus at the moment is that most people will eventually catch it.
If enough people build up immunity to covid-19 the virus will be stopped in it's tracks.

Presently there is no anti-viral vaccine available, it may take up to a year or even longer to develop and produce one.

For healthy and young people it can be no worse than traditional flu, but for anyone with other complications it can be deadly.

If you do contract covid-19, take care not pass it on to vulnerable people.

Take care and stay safe.
