Forever Manchester Women

Last night we were invited to talk at one of Forever Manchester‘s networking events in support of female-led community projects across Greater Manchester. It was a great privilege to be asked to speak at such an event, and a great opportunity for us to share news of our projects and the great support we have received on our journey with Two by Two.

Heather’s Mosaic in the making

We had a fantastic morning with mosaic artist Tracey Cartledge earlier this week. Two by Two were joined by pupils from Park Road Primary School, Wellfield Infant and Nursery School and Wellfield Juniors School on a visit Tracey’s studio to see the work in progress on the community mosaic being produced to celebrate local lollipop lady Heather Morris’ 45 years service crossing children safely.

Please check out the photos through this link to our Facebook page. We will keep you updated on Tracey’s progress over these coming weeks, and be sure to save the date of the 6th May when Heather’s Mosaic will be unveiled to the public once it is installed on the wall of The Cornerhouse Costcutter store on Glebelands Road.

Children’s mosaic designs for Heather

We’re loving seeing the design entries that are coming in from the local school children Lollipop Lady Heather Morris has been crossing. Very much looking forward to seeing how the mosaic design will take shape once artist Tracey Cartledge has selected some winning entries!

 

Sale Christmas Lantern Parade

Rain or shine(!) we’re going to be getting gluey and glittery in Sale Library from 10:30am today. We hope the rain will hold off for us to light up Sale town from 3:40pm at The Square when we’ll be parading all our lanterns down to the Waterside to meet Father Christmas from his sleigh-boat!

We hope to see you there!
