A new north west focused Unlikley Heroes exhibition will open in October at Bridge 5 Mill in the Ancoats area of Manchester.
Bridge 5 Mill Centre for Sustainable Living is fabulous restoration of an old mill which is now a hub and resource for groups, organisations and individuals working towards a more sustainable future. The aim is to be an example of how it is possible to work in a sustainable, collaborative and ethical way. The refurbishment of Bridge 5 Mill was undertaken using as many sustainable materials and building practices as possible.
Conference and meeting rooms are hired out on a sliding scale of payment – one operation to be using them in October will be Kindling Trust, the Manchester-based enterprise set up by Helen Woodcock and Chris Walsh with the aim of refocusing the food supply chain across Manchester, public institutions in particular, to one of being organic and sustainably based. I posted on my visit to Kindling’s FarmStart project at Abbey Leys Farm just recently.
The exhibition will be in conjunction with Kindling Trust and will run alongside the trust’s AGM which will be held in Bridge 5 Mill. In addition to the exhibition, I will be giving a short talk on my travels and experiences at the AGM on the evening of October 19th at Bridge 5 Mill. Everyone welcome, do get it in your diary if you are near or within Manchester. The exact dates the exhibition will be open will be confirmed shortly, but 19th October is likely to be the opening night. For details of how to get to Bridge 5 etc click here.
