Magnolia Court Coffee Mornings
SALT has been supporting the Magnolia Court Tara (Tenants and Residents Association) in partnership with the Salford Health Improvement Team and SALIX Homes, and provided the group with help and support in organising regular coffee mornings and afternoon teas which will take place at the Magnolia Court community room. These activities will take place twice a month and the Magnolia tenants will be provided with help and support on debt advice, housing, employment, training and learning opportunities. The Salford Health Improvement Team will also provide the tenants with free health check-ups whilst promoting healthy eating and well being.The group hopes that these activities will promote TARA within the block and encourage more tenants to get involved as well as providing the tenants with an opportunity to get to know each other in an informal setting.
Community Drop - Ins at Pendleton Gateway
The Gateway Community Drop-Ins take place at the community rooms in the Gateway centre every 2nd Wednesday of the month. Anyone is welcome to drop in for a cup of tea / coffee / juice and some healthy snacks and a chat.
The reason for this monthly community café is to promote well-being by giving us all a chance to get to know more people in our area and for local groups to promote what they’re doing! We have seen drama performances from Ordsall Youth Group as well as Street Dance by St Paul’s Dance Group, choreographed by the group itself. In the coming months, there will be another dance performance by the dance groups as well as an Arts workshop facilitated by Ordsall Community Arts.
The dates for the next Wednesday drops-ins at the Gateway are: 14th September, 12th October, 9th November and 14th December from 4pm toll 6pm. Everyone is more than welcome to showcase their talents so please contact us if you would like to display your work or promote your activities. Please contact Meral on 0161 737 9918 or Ruth on 07554 438 570. The Drop-ins have been initiated and organised by Ordsall & Langworthy Health Improvement Team and SALT.
