The Miners Community Arts and Music Centre on a working class estate in North Manchester which had been neglected has been revamped by a small collective of artists and musicians.
Now a disused space at the Moston Miners Community Centre in Moston has undergone a complete transformation by a team of volunteers over a three week period, showcasing the new outdoor area which the local community can now enjoy.
The Centre already plays an important role in providing space for local groups and charities and this practical but peaceful garden is a valuable addition.
Sponsored by TradePoint, a leading builder’s merchant, the project was made possible by tradespeople from across the North West coming together to donate their time for a local cause.
The centre which already provides a space for live music and functions as well as a surround screen cinema is currently constructing a recording studio.
Part of the garden includes a memorial to the coal pit which was once part of Manchester superpit which closed in 1950.
“We’re really excited about the project, and can’t wait to see the community using the space. We’re thankful for all of the tradesmen volunteers and to TradePoint for making it happen” Louis Becket, Miners Community Arts and Music Centre.
