The second Mancsgiving Day is just round the corner!

If you missed the first, here’s a taster of what you can expect. Across the outside and inside performance areas, lots of local bands, poets and actors, magic, dance and art to fill the spirit and the soul. Mouth-watering freshly made food, inside and outside bars. Plenty of stuff for kids as well as the adults-from circus skills to hula hoops!

You’ll find many friends amongst the diverse crowd-mates, families, colleagues –all part of this wonderful community in South Manchester, centred in leafy Whalley Range. So what’s it all for?

Organised by #mancsgiving , a group of local volunteer fundraisers, the 2018 festival will be raising money for Reach out to the Community and Manchester Mind. Enter by voluntary donations.

“In these testing global times, making an effort to improve life on our doorstep is the best step we can take” #mancsgiving

Whalley Rangers

The Carlton Club Community Garden is an exciting venture for us as it is a beautiful and safe setting that is ideal for families. The social club committee are keen to develop their property as a community asset, for the use and enjoyment of local residents.

For Whalley Rangers the garden provides a central location for our garden tool library and base for our urban gardening initiatives. Our aim is to create a garden that people can enjoy, contribute to and relax in. A garden that becomes a valued community asset for it’s social value. There will be some veg and fruit growing, but also plants for wildlife, for beauty and to enhance the grounds of the social club.

We want to provide for young people too, and use the garden for social events and social projects. Local people will benefit from volunteering and enjoying the garden. The Carlton Club will have improved grounds and greater community involvement in the club. Whalley Range, though a leafy suburb, is an inner city area with a diverse community, neighbourhoods with high deprivation and a high proportion of flats.

Community gardening will provide opportunities for neighbours to socialise and to gain gardening skills and knowledge. It will contribute to community pride in the area and enable neighbours to get to know each other.

Our tool library supports neighbourhood gardening projects across the ward, such as the ginnel gardens we are introducing in the Dukeries, and the planters in our local shopping area. We’ll use our poly tunnel greenhouse to grow new plants for the garden and these projects.
