Our update from the June edition of Community Index.
June’s a big month for us – let’s hope for some lovely South Manchester sunshine!
We’ve joined forces with Beech Road Traders and Community Index to create Chorlton Events a new calendar listing what’s happening in this place we call home. We want it to be an indispensable guide on what to do in Chorlton – from major cultural events to hidden-gem attractions on wet Wednesdays. Members of the two Traders Associations can email their events for inclusion We’ll promote the site through our members, through the magazine and through our wider marketing channels. You’ll find the calendar – a work in progress, but filling up fast – at www.communityindex.co.uk.
Chorlton Map countdown
We’re very excited about our beautiful new Chorlton Map. It’s going to show residents and visitors not only that Chorlton means business, but also why it’s such a great place to live and work. With a good wind behind us, it should be ready for launch by late June – be sure to grab your free copy. Even if you’ve always lived here, you’ll find something new – we guarantee it.
A garden for everyone
The community garden between the Library and the Sedge Lynn has opened its gates. Bring your lunch, a good book or a friend for a chat – you’re all welcome. All we ask is that you treat the garden with respect, and leave it as you would hope to find it.
Actually, that’s a lie – it’s not all we ask. This garden doesn’t belong to the Council, it belongs to us all. If you’re a bit green-fingered, or tidily-minded, we’d love your help. We’re not asking for hard-labourers or earth shifters – we’ve already done all that stuff. Now it’s time for the dead-headers, weeders, waterers and snippers to step up. If you’re a gardener who can spare a little tending time now and then, please do get in touch. We’re not asking for a big commitment – it may even be a quick ten-minute-tidy when you’re passing by – but our volunteers do make a big difference. Contact us for more information.
