The DCS 5 ideas for Didsbury Village recently printed in the Didsbury Post August/September 2022 issue will be re-visited as we still do not see any plans for Didsbury.
The DCS, Probus and People, Place and Planet agreed to meet on the 17 th November 2022 to strengthen relationships rather than outbidding each other.
A Public Health seminar is planned for early 2023 working with the Didsbury Neighbourhood Management Team, following up on our successful Climate and Pollution September 2021 seminar.

Yours sincerely

Mike Corlett
