See a shop’s first birthday, an X Factor-style performance and body builders in this week’s Time-trip column.

Each week we will publish a set of pictures taken by our photographers which appeared in the paper in the 2000s.

The pictures appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.

This week our pictures show Heldan News shop on Moss Lane Macclesfield, with Stephen Gillespie in front holding a cake to celebrate the store’s first birthday.

They also include a sale for Childline and performers in Poynton High School’s X Factor show in aid of Children in Need

Paul Norton and Gary Rollinson are pictured at G S Gym, Pickford Street.

The photographs were all taken in the early 2000s.

If you have any pictures you would like us to feature in the column, please send them into us at or via the Macclesfield Express Facebook page.
