Key Projects for 2022

Didsbury Garden of Contemplation

A diverse group of Didsbury residents including the Didsbury Civic Society, Didsbury in Bloom, local councillors, council officers and St James & Emmanuel church have been meeting to look at how to improve the Didsbury War Memorial for all residents of the local community. Find out more on the new website.

Public meetings

In November 2021 we held our first public meeting since becoming a CIO (Charitable Integrated Organisation). The seminar, on Climate and Air Control Pollution, was well received and laid the ground for a future follow up meeting which will interface with our next proposed topical presentation. Read more.

Photos and films of old and new Didsbury

These can be viewed here. We are also planning to preserve the ghost sign at Costa Coffee (pictured). Read more.
