Bright Beginnings indeed

Manor Gardens Welfare Trust launched Bright Beginnings at a well-attended launch party on 28th September. The event was to showcase the project as well as to bring the service to the notice of professionals working in the field. There was a log of interest from midwives, commissioners, women's groups and community representatives. Read more here

Championing free speech

Our prestigious keynote lecture took place on 22nd September at Islington Town Hall's magnificent Council Chamber. Over 80 people came along to hear journalist Nick Cohen and comedian Kate Smurthwaite put forward their views and debate this important issue. Read more here.
Well deserved
Manor Gardens is very proud of the over 250 people who volunteer with us every year. Some people volunteer for one-off events, such as our Summer Wellbeing Festival, but some people have volunteered with us for over ten years. We were thrilled to be able to invite them to receive certificates from the Mayor of Islington at the Council Chamber before the Keynote Speech. Read more here.
Corporate volunteers spruce up Manor Gardens
We've been very lucky in having two large teams from Mitsubishi UK and Macquarie who have given their time to make Manor Gardens a nicer place. The MUFG group painted our Preschool a calming almond white whilst Macquarie volunteers repainted our conference room and planted bulbs. Read more here.
Promoting Winter Wellbeing
Now the autumn winds are beginning to bite it's good to know we are planning a Winter Wellbeing Festival on 20th March 2017 at the Islington Assembly Halls to wipe away the winter blues. We are looking for information stalls and interactive taster sessions. Contact Felicity if you are interested in taking part.
