Newest Review: ... there is NOTHING to do for young people. At all. Basically, if you live in Macclesfield and you don't have a car, then you may as well accept your fate as a hermit, because there really is no hope for you, unless you can befriend someone with a car.

Although Macclesfield (or Macc as it is known to locals) council is probably the most useless one in the whole of the world, things are eventually changing and the town is beginning to look like a nice place to live once more.
