We're getting together again!
Wilbraham Road, Sunday 24 September, 12-4pm
Chorlton Community Cooperative is organising another Great Get Together in September – Chorlton’s biggest, best and favourite street party. Come and join in the fun – or join our team and help out! Everyone is welcome.
Chorlton’s a place that’s famous for its creativity, its independent culture and its community spirit. This is where people care: there are many groups and projects working to make Chorlton a better place for all.
The purpose of Chorlton Community Cooperative is simple. We help join the dots – and by working together, we get more done. Proudly independent, Chorlton Community Cooperative is run by and for its members. And membership is open to all.
Like all cooperatives, we hold true to the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.
We are Chorlton people, working with Chorlton people to make positive change.
Chorlton Traders and Chorlton Voice are calling out for street artists to apply for commissions to decorate Chorlton’s on-street junction boxes.
We want to....
