Miles Platting Savers has grown out of a long history of resident-led action in the neighbourhood including campaigns to save the local shops amidst the loss of many other local community amenities over recent decades and the setting up of Miles Platting Community Grocer a local food membership club. After a series of exchanges with Mums Mart in Wythenshawe, residents involved in the tenants association and the community grocer decided that a savings groups would bring important benefits to their local community. Meanwhile Mums Mart have also begun setting up a Community Grocer shop after learning from the experiences of women in Miles Platting.
Miles Platting Savers have their weekly savings meetings 9am Thursdays in the Community Grocer shop at Queensbury Court, Wardle Street, M40 7DD.
Please contact Kelly O’Brien for more information on 07461 011 720 or just drop into the shop on a Thursday morning.
