Last year together with the local authority and the parks team we attempted to begin the process of building a long-term vision for Parkway Playing Fields, in consultation with the residents of Merseybank. We conducted surveys for two age groups: under 16s and 16+ and as result we received 146 responses.
On the 15th and 16th of June there will be School Street road closure events outside Barlow Hall school, organised in partnership between school staff, Our Streets Chorlton and Sustrans.
The council have given permission to close Darley Avenue for a short section between Mottram Avenue and Barlow Hall Rd, from 8.30 am to 9.15 am and 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm on both days, to encourage people to walk or cycle to school.
Residents will be able to access their houses and take deliveries. The bus, blue badge holders and utility companies will be able to pass through. The road barriers will be staffed by experienced marshals. Diversions will be signed and we aim for minimal disruption and maximum joy! For further info you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After a long break we are back to our monthly community litter picking from next Saturday! As before we meet at the shops at 12PM where we will receive your litter picking equipment and PPE. We finish one hour later at the same location.
Families, all age groups and abilities are welcome, underage volunteers need to be supervised at all times.
Be(e) Merseybank are local organisations, residents, activists, artists working together to show love to our neighbours and our shared spaces. Over the last year we created something special, lets keep that spirit going! Turn up to one or more of the planned events and Be(e) Merseybank!
The series of events will take place between Sat 15/05 and Sun 23/05. We are starting with the Clearfields Festival this Saturday at 10AM. We’ll be clearing our fields in style. It might be your only festival experience this year so make sure you don’t miss out.
On Sunday will be hosting an Orchard info session on Parkway Playing Fields. We invite everyone to come and picnic around our new fruit trees (as long as weather allows!). We’ll be giving away some wildflower seeds, providing more information about the ongoing projects and will set up some games for children to be used under parental/carer supervision. We look forward to meeting you at one or more upcoming events!
