The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Cllr Eddy Newman was our special guest at our Luncheon Club for over 50’s today. He joined in with enthusiasm our gentle exercise session for an hour before the meal was served. Whilst he was here he sat in our ‘Throne of Levenshulme’ and heard all about our ‘Take A Seat’ campaign on Stockport Road. Here he is surrounded by the lovely ladies and gents of our Inspired People’s Project (click on the picture to see a bigger version). Several diners remarked how friendly the Mayor was and he ate up all of his lunch! The Mayor’s closing comments were:-
“Thank you for inviting me today. I have really enjoyed myself. Every time I come to Levenshulme Inspire, I am really pleased to see how well you engage with the community and get everyone involved. Its a really good model of a community centre”.
Exercise and Eat sessions are held every Tuesday, 11am – 12pm for an hour of gentle exercise (£2) followed by a 2 course meal (£3) raffle and quiz. if you would like to attend, call Geraldine on 0161 850 4044.
All food served today has been re-distributed by local charity Fareshare and has been ‘intercepted’ on its way to landfill. Inspire café is committed to using 90% of Fareshare ingredients to keep costs low, reduce food waste and stop unnecessary dumping of food that can be re-used in landfill.
