Let’s face it, nobody will be sad to see the end of 2020. Between lockdown and Tier 3, this year has been a major challenge for us all. Particularly for local businesses. We were keen to welcome our wonderful local businesses to be part of the windows (if tier-ly possible) to showcase the fantastic talent, goods and services that are available in our Community. We also have a few thank yous to offer (in no particular order!).

Thanks so much to the incredible Lucie (creator of the Doll’s House Art Gallery) our Social Media Guru. Thanks also to Laura for securing some funds to cover our poster printing. Thanks of course – and perhaps most importantly – to our 130+ glorious window creators! If you’d like to add your details to this page just send Jen a message (Jenrobrien@gmail.com).

The wonderful Jamie Whittaker has donated a £20 gift token to spend at the equally wonderful Gherkin vegetarian and vegan bistro/bar in Levenshulme for the winner of our Activity Sheet competition (see Map page). The Gherkin is closed whilst we are under Tier three…. but will be back, especially for Vimto Margaritas 🙂
