Local City Centre Lib Dem Campaigner John Bridges was recently seen getting his fingers dirty by helping out residents in the Northern Quarter with weeding and bulb planting. The Northern Quarter Community Group has an active green group that is committed to greening the Northern Quarter, and on a wet sunday in January John helped out residents – along with Cllr Marc Ramsbottom – planting bulbs at Church Street car park, the beds outside Chatsworth House and also around some street trees on Oldham Street.
“I’m really passionate about greening the city centre, and I know my colleagues Marc and Elaine have done a lot to help local residents with CASH grants for planting, and it was great to help out practically by supporting local residents who have a real pride in their area. It’s just a pity the weather was not a bit better!”Leave a comment
