What do you call a woman who sits at her kitchen table setting fire to her IOUs and bills?
And this weekend…
Sat 18th August 10:30 am to 1:30 pm ‘Grey to Green’ event entitled ‘Summer in Manchester’ and will be led by Steve Atkins of GMLRC Mersey Valley Visitors’ Centre, Rifle Road, Sale.
Last year the Greater Manchester Local Records Centre (GMLRC), which is attached to the Greater Manchester Ecology Unit (GMEU), submitted a bid to the National Heritage Lottery Fund – and the bid was successful. The resulting project, which will run for three years, is called ‘From Grey to Green’ and its aim is to encourage the people of Greater Manchester to appreciate and record the wildlife around them. via Friends of Chorlton Meadows.
