24th Sep 2019 - Additional meeting to elect committee

The AGM was held last night, however we did not have the required number of people in order to elect a committee. Another meeting has been scheduled for Monday 11th November at 7pm at the Southway Housing offices. We need a minumum of 8 residents at the meeting in order for us to elect a committee. If we do not manage to elect a committee, either the group will become unofficial, in which case we cannot apply for funding for any projects, or the committee will fold.

If you have the time, we would be very grateful if you could attend the meeting.

2nd Apr 2019 - Weed Suppression Spraying

Biffa will be spraying streets, pavements and passageways to control weeds. Didsbury West is due for the first treatment on 22nd April. We do not have specific dates for the second treatment, but it will be during mid-summer.

Biffa will not be spraying the parks, and I have spoken to Richard Salisbury who confirmed that they do not spray in Mersey Bank Park.

If you have any concerns about spraying on your street, or would like to exempt your street from spraying, please contact us.
