Part four and the concluding part of the not so quick review of 2017 covering the period from October to December.
In its centenary year, the Co-operative Party has done a whole host of events across the country many aimed at raising awareness of what the party is, and what some of the policy aims are.
The project was started by Roxanne Ellis, a Labour/Co-op councillor, after she read the Femicide Census, which records the names of all the women killed by their partners or ex-partners between 2009 and 2015.
I also had the chance to once again cover the Glossop & District Round Table Manor Park Bonfire & Fireworks. A great evening which I hope will once again be of great benefit to a number of Glossopdale groups with the funds that are raised by the head working team of tablers and the various volunteers that help on the night, you can see a few images below and more on flickr.
An evening where we take a little time to recognise those who make a difference in our community – you can see more details on that shortly.
The folk train, is a Glossop institution and the Christmas one even more so.
This year’s Christmas folk train featured the Eunaice Bobcats, a small 17 piece (at least in the version that attended at Christmas) providing a great sound.
If you’ve never heard of the folk train before, a band play on the train up to Glossop, then play in the Labour Club, before finally playing on the train back to Manchester.
