A Helping of History - 04/12/2018

Playing tracks by

Skeeter Davis, The Platters, The Marvelettes, Tom Jones, Dolly Parton and more.

This week, I’ll be talking to Celia Cropper from Friends of Broadhurst Park.

Comprising everything from a formally laid-out park to wetland to football pitches, this is a fascinating patch that’s home to interesting flora and fauna, and which has a really interesting history. The Friends of Broadhurst were set up to protect and preserve this unique green space. They have also researched and shared stories of the park’s history.

I’ll be talking to Celia about the work the Friends do, the events they put on, and the research they’ve done into the history of Broadhurst Park, Clough and Fields.

In addition to this, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings?

Listen every Tuesday from 12-2pm, North Manchester FM, 106.6 FM
