Re: Closing down... opening up

It is the same owners/ staff, they clarified that on Twitter t'other week.
Nothing but a change of name.

Re: New leisure centre at Hough End: More consultation

It's great news.
The people of Withington-Didsbury (W-Dids) get to run their own local Leisure Centre.
(Not their Council, which they paid their taxes for.)
However, in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, no-one is stepping up to:
a) object that this is happening.
b) organise a similar future for Chorlton Baths.

Re: Footpath 181

There was the inquiry, with alternative proposals for the route, and questionnaire, but I've heard nothing since.

Re: Footpath 181

I suspect the Council are sitting tight, hoping it's been forgotten about again. Likewise the people who stole the footpath to extend their private gardens.

Re: New leisure centre at Hough End: More consultation

It's not listed. Despite the council telling us it's un-maintainable, staff say the pool's plant is relatively modern, I hold out hope it could be taken off the council's hands under a community purchase scheme, and run as a charity or co-operative or similar. It's great having a pool in central Cho...

Re: Closing down... opening up

Wowie Zowie is now closed.
Sad times.
Though I gather they'll still do the Vintage Fairs and Markets.

Re: Closing down... opening up

I asked them that via Twitter: the Dentist is going in upstairs, and Chapati Cafe is going downstairs.
I'm not sure how much of a 'cafe' it's going to be, rather than a Takeaway with eat-in option.

Panini World Cup sticker swaps session.

If any of you are, or have kids who are collecting the Panini World Cup 2014 football stickers; there's a swap-session this Saturday at Font Chorlton, from 3pm.
Come along with your swaps, your album, or your your 'wants' lists.

Re: Closing down... opening up

Talking of "opening up", I tried the replacement for Hungry Geko at the Beech on (Bank Hol) Monday night: "Parlour Dogs", by The Parlour. Is Parlour Dogs owned by Parlour, the place further down on Beech Road? Or just a similar name? I'm tempted to think not as it's taking trade...
