Lower Kersal Residents Forum
We will be holding a Summer fun day for local people in Lower Kersal. The fun day will be aimed at families and will encourage them to spend some quality time together in a safe and fun environment. The event will be free and there will be creative activities, live music, displays, sports activities, face paint, bouncy castle and food. The Police and Fire Service will also be there to do some engagement work with local people and to help build positive relationships.
We are a not for profit social enterprise based in Manchester but delivering activity across Greater Manchester, including Salford on Kersal Dale. Our purpose is "To provide adventurous activity in adults and children to whom there are barriers preventing them the opportunity". We undertake a number of activities including a ParaClimbing (disabled) Club, holiday club places for Salford children with disabilities, an Over50s Climbing Club and an Over50s Woodland Conservation Club. We are starting a monthly Over 50s Woodland Conservation Club on Kersal Dale for older people to make new friends, become more active and learn more about the outdoors. The new Club will enable us to do this and help keep Kersal Dale clean and usable for local residents and enable more activity to take place down on Kersal Dale. We require money for tools and equipment and some for courses off the Rangers.
Broughton House is a dedicated nursing and residential home serving all those who have served us in the armed forces. The charity recognises the great sacrifices that our veterans have made for us all. For the last 100 years we have ensured that they have a final home that affords them the care, dignity, comradeship and comfort that they so richly deserve.
We would hope to use the funding to provide a number of activities and events for our residents and the local community to take part in and enjoy together. We would also like to engage with more local schools to arrange joint activities with our veterans.
Strawberries Community Group
The Strawberries Community Group is made up of residents that came together in 2008 with the shared aim of making a community garden for local people to enjoy. The garden was originally funded through the NDC and happily maintained by the group. Over the past couple of years, the group has seen major changes. There has been illness of key group members and residents moving to other areas. This has meant that the garden has fallen into disrepair and is now in desperate need of rejuvenation.
The community garden was so much more than just a place for plants to grow; it was a place for our community to grow. It was a centre focus for residents to come together and take ownership of the area whilst forming relationships that went far beyond the common interests of the garden itself. Help us bring back that sense of community!
The money from this scheme would go towards replacing old planter boxes and purchasing new ones, along with new top soil, plants and equipment to maintain the garden.
