Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go

We’ve talked before about the workshops in the Central Refuge on this blog before. But after coming across some beautiful photographs in the archive it is perhaps time to revisit this important part of the charity’s history.

They've been chucking salt in it!

After two weeks of glorious sunshine the rain appears to have returned to Manchester. So as our thoughts instead drift towards holidays and golden sands it reminded me of this image taken from our archives.

Johnny's so long at the fair

It’s that time of the year when we are once again looking forward to our annual Cheadle Festival on Saturday 8th June. Unlike last year the weather is looking promising and we’re hoping the warm weather will bring out local residents to our little corner and help us celebrate the charity and raise some much needed funds.
