“Are we amused yet?”

Ok, so a massive thank you to everyone who came out to pick up litter with a definite sense of attitude at our “We are not amused” event on the 5th March.  Did you spot the Queens on Ayres Road on Saturday?  We do hope that we raised a few smiles, and a few eyebrows.

Ayres Road looked lovely once we had done our bit – there was an amazing amount of litter to pick up – cigarette butts being particularly difficult little blighters!  We hope that you noticed the difference over the weekend on your shopping expeditions and trips to the post office.

Vote for the best Her Royal Highness on the day goes to Malc – shame the only prize is a clean street – but then maybe that’s enough in life.

Look out for the next litter pick with attitude – it will be themed, and coming in fancy dress will help our efforts stand out even more (as well as raising a few smiles and eyebrows).

Love Old Trafford meeting 9 Feb 2016

We would like to invite you to come to the next LOTS (Love Old Trafford) meeting to find out more about what we do, and to get involved.  We are meeting on Tuesday 9th Feb in St. John’s Centre at our new time of 7.30pm.  We plan to finish by 9.30pm.

You are welcome to come and find out about what we do and meet some of the people who are involved.  We are all local residents and are involved in our spare time, giving whatever time we feel we can give.  If you come to a meeting there is no expectation that you get involved in everything, or anything at all. People usually come with a passion for a particular issue – fly tipping in their alley; litter in the park; seeing an empty plot of land they think would make a good growing site.  Others just come because they want to support others in their community in making a better place to live.

If you do have a burning issue that you want to bring to the group we ask you to email us prior to the meeting to let us know.  As residents we know there is nothing more frustrating than having a problem to solve and not having the time to discuss it with others and find support.

Hope to see you at our next meeting.
