LATEST NEWS ABOUT FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH EMAGAZINE

from-the-horses-mouthHello. My magazine has now been running for three years so I think it’s fair to say it is  established.

Of course, the magazine couldn’t have existed without input and cooperation from many helpful people like my parents, Robert Williams, Ruth Minich, Brenda Condoll and Michael Blackburn. I have been fortunate to witness the magazine readership grow weekly and have seen a steady  increase in the number of subscribers.

The competitions have proved to be a popular inclusion in the magazine and have provided me with some very interesting material which I have been able to use.

Many people have been kind enough to let me interview them about their work and lives and this is something I intend to continue doing in the future. If you would like me to interview you, you can contact me at:deancharltonmag@gmail.com

The magazine exists for everyone and aims to give a voice to people who are usually ignored – you can view the magazine at: http://www.deancharltonmag.com

Best Wishes, Dean Charlton.

ANOTHER INTERVIEW FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

from-the-horses-mouthKIERAN HOLLIDAY TELLS US ABOUT ANDYSMANCLUB

Kieran, can you tell me a bit about this club you’re involved with? ANDYMANSCLUB  is a great place for men, from all backgrounds, to get together and discuss problems like mental illnesses (I suffer from bi-polar) and alcoholism etc. We all get together and it becomes almost like a brotherhood.

Where do you meet? My main meeting place is the Shay Stadium in Halifax although we have meeting places in Hebden Bridge Town Hall, Hull (Pulse Rate Group Wincolmlee), Leigh Sports Village, S. Wales (Bridgend The Brewery Field) and one has just opened in H.M.P. Armley for the people in there. Please note that all meetings are at 7 pm on a Monday evening, everything is confidential in the room, not judgemental and no counsellors are present.

Who started the group? A professional rugby league player called Luke Ambler who has played for Halifax and represented England and Ireland.

What made Luke start the group? His brother-in-law Andrew committed suicide out-of-the-blue, having seemingly never having had a problem in his life; he left his kid and his wife behind so Luke took responsibility for them both and realised that men don’t often express their feelings and talk about their problems – they have a shield up and feel they have always got to be the ‘man’. So Luke created this safe place for men to go in order to try and stop things like this happening again.

INTERVIEW WITH SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WOMAN

louise.jpgINTERVIEW WITH LOCAL BUSINESSWOMAN LOUISE WOODIVES

Louise, can you say a bit about yourself? I’m forty-six. I’m married to Victor and have three children – Mathew twenty-two, Charlotte fifteen and Sebastian who is thirteen. I was born and bred in Halifax and have always lived in Halifax. I originally come from the Holmfield area of Halifax and now live in Skircoat Green.

How long have you had your café and how did you come to own it? I bought it on the 25th of this year and it came about because I was a regular customer when the then owners asked me if I was interested in buying the café. I went home and had a talk with my husband and we decided we would like to buy it – the rest is history!

Did you always want to have your own business? Yes, I’ve always wanted to work for myself but was not quite sure in what line. I have however, always been interested in catering and this opportunity just came out of the blue.

How did you know you would be able to make a success of this business when you had never run a café before? Well I’ve done various jobs in the past and thought sometimes you just have to take a risk and see if it works out. I like a challenge!

CHRISTIANITY FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

faithFAITH HAS EYES

Written by Rumbi Mapanga
By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible. (Hebrews 11:24-27 NKJV)

You might be surprised like I was when I first heard that faith has eyes. Yes I knew about faith but no one had ever explained to me that it had eyes.

A QUAKER TALKS ABOUT HIS LIFE FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

robin fishwick.jpgROBIN FISHWICK TALKS A BIT ABOUT HIS WORK AND LIFE (photograph by Maria Alzamora)

Robin, can you tell me a bit about yourself?  I was born in Uttoxeter, a small market town in Staffordshire. My family moved to Chesterfield just before my 7th birthday and I came to Leeds in1978 to study Social Policy and Administration at the University. I stuck here ever since. I got involved with the University Folk Society through friends in the late 1980’s where I got to know Matthew McIntyre. He and I were housemates when we were asked to collaborate with Mel Richardson – the late Melvis Paisley- in a production of Beowulf and there I met Sarah Reardon who was playing harp. She was considerably younger than I was and I tried to give her plenty of time to realise her mistake, but she didn’t and 7 years later in 1999 we married. We now have two daughters Rosa (12) and Grace (10) and live in “LILAC” a straw bale co-housing scheme in Bramley, Leeds.
