Thankyou Chorlton for your Christmas Windows 2021

Chorlton displayed wonderful, vibrant windows in the run up to Christmas, 2021.

The Chorlton Traders’ Cup was awarded to Tiny’s Tipple.

The Mary Paul Cup for Beech Road was awarded to Love Lucy.

This account will tell you all about the window selection and both Runners Up and Highly Commended.

We are thinking of having an after dark selection next year.

Thankyou to everyone who decorated their windows and gave Chorlton much needed cheer.

We hope to see you there.

What would you like to see in the Community Garden?

We are collaborating with other groups in chorlton to renovate and bring back into use the little gem of a green space next to the Library. At the moment it is closed for health and safety reasons, but over the years it has become overgrown and is quite a tangle now.

What would you like to see in this space – have your say by completing the short questionnaire at  or pick up a paper copy in the Library.
