Macclesfield Town were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the much-loved Dot Braddock at the age of 86 recently.
Dot was someone who gave the club many years of devoted service and she became renowned all over the country for the mouth-watering chips that were sold within the refreshment kiosks.
Not only that, Dot also helped the club receive an award for the pies on offer and Cheshire Life even ran a feature on the London Road Tea Bar - such was the esteem that it was held in.
Dot spent over ten years within that kiosk and it was not really the quality of her chips, pies and cups of Bovril which adhered her to the massive (although these were an added benefit!).
It was the fact that even on a cold Tuesday night, when it was lashing it down with rain and Macc were losing - Dot still had that infectious smile on her face that made everyone feel welcome.
As such, Dot made many friends at the club - and rightly so. She was a true Silkmen heroine, whose passion helped to nurture a generation.
As such, Dot's legacy will continue to play a tangible role here at the Moss Rose, both in terms of the memories that she helped create and the people that she undoubtedly inspired.
We would like to convey our deepest sympathies to Carole, Sarah and all of Dot's family and friends at this difficult time.
