  1. Hello
    We are hopefully moving to Levenshulme towards the Fall, fingers crossed it all works out with the house! So happy to see a lively community group for the area. Looking forward to coming to a future meeting.

  2. I’m sure you will love Levenshulme, Allyn. There is a strong sense of community and lots going on.

    We’ve had amazing success in defending our public services through the hard work, dedication and imagination of so many people so the swimming pools, gym and library will still be here waiting for you in the Autumn. Come 2015 we’ll have brand new facilities on Stockport Road as well. And we have Manchester’s only roller hockey and roller derby rink with an award winning international team.

    Our new Food and Drink Festival starts on 21st June will cafes, bars and traders involved from across the area. And the Sunday Times even listed Levenshulme in the top ten up and coming vibrant places in the UK a few weeks ago.

    Levenshulme is the place to be and you’ll be very welcome.

  3. Hi, we moved to Levenshulme at the end of last year. What a lovely area so glad, we are looking to get more involved in the community so hope to see you all soon.
