2018

4th December 2018

2018 has been a great year.  After being based in Harpurhey Neighbourhood Centre for 17 years we took the plunge and moved to the ground floor of Redbank House in Cheetham.  After the initial concerns that any move brings, everyone settled in and it felt like home very quickly.

We had our open day in June which was well attended, Jon Rouse said a few words and the local councillors called in to show their support.

In the summer we were given the go ahead from Northwards Housing to start work on one of their community gardens.  Along with Mike, Collette and some volunteers we have cleared the weeds (repeatedly) and planted 100’s of bulbs in readiness for the spring.

A small group went fishing at Bolton Fisheries in August and had a great time, we caught some big fish that were all safely returned back to the lake.

We’ve been going into Manchester a lot more as we are now so much closer.  Some of the group have had a great time trying to find all the Manchester Bees, others have enjoyed cooling off in the fountains at Piccadilly gardens during the hot weather we had.

December is the start of our festive outings; small groups have been popping down to have a wander round the Christmas Markets, bookings have been confrimed for christmas meals and we will be attending the Manchester People First party.

We are rounding off the year with our Christmas Party on the 21st December’18.

Wishing you all a Merry Festive Season and a Happy New Year
