A message from Helen Power:
“Hello, as some of you may know there are some changes afoot at the Market. I will be stepping down from my position as a director at the end of this year (sniff!) and we’re having a bit of a reshuffle, which means we have a position available for a communications and marketing director! Is that you? Is it someone you know? Is it your cat? Find out if you, your pal or your pussy qualify.”

Helen has been a key driving force behind the new Levenshulme Market since it was established five years ago as a social enterprise. Her energy, commitment and enthusiasm have helped make the market the success it has been as a vibrant focal point for Levenshulme on Saturdays and for many wonderful evening markets as well.

The very first Levenshulme and Burnage Garden Festival, including an Open Gardens weekender!
Please share *a lot* folks, and help us to make it a roaring success!
Many events are FREE, or cracking value, as we were awarded some cash from Manchester City Council’s Neighbourhood Investment Fund.
The first ‘event’ is is on 25th May at Levenshulme Market: Incredible Edible Levenshulme will be dishing out FREE herbs & wildflowers for tree pits and community alleys in Levenshulme and Burnage, 10am-2pm. If you’re a member of a residents’ group, have tree pits on your street, or have transformed your alley, you are eligible – FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!
On the same day, at 1pm, Andrea, AKA Little Italy Kitchen is hosting a Garden Feast in his beautiful garden. Details are on the poster (expand poster to full screen, left click ‘options’ in bottom right corner and click ‘download’. You should then be able to enlarge it to a legible size).
Hard copies will be available at Bud, The Buttery and in and around Levenshulme and Burnage from Friday 5th May.
There are two Incredible Edible Levenshulme community events to let you know about this week – IEL will be working on the Village Green and A6 planters on Wednesday evening, and there’s a community action day on Saturday 22nd (with Levy Market, Friends of Levenshulme Station, Love Levenshulme and IEL) to litter pick and clear spaces for planting on the Street With No Name.
