A Busy Fortnight

It has been full on for the last fourteen days and without the help and support of the members, the following events would not have taken place or been so successful. Thank you to all the volunteers. The events include, five afternoon opening of Long St. Methodist Church and School Rooms for the national Heritage Open Days to the public, with over 250 visitors.

At the same time Steve Whitworth a local artist, held an exhibition of his work in the Church and was also on hand for all openings.

Two tour groups from national organisations were booked in to visit the Church and Rooms. This was followed by a walk around the Conservation Area to take in the other EW properties. We are now up to seven afternoon events and still another two to go.

The Society of Architectural Historians depart after  three days of exploring Manchester’s architectural heritage.

On Wednesday 2oth Sept. a society member gave a talk to the Crumpsall U3A group comparing the work of EW with R W Mackintosh with special reference to The Hill House in Helensburgh. To conclude the fortnight the Society was represented at the One Community Event held at the Edgar Wood Academy on Sunday the 24th.
