This is a temporary webpage to share information about Our Irwell 

Dear friends and supporters

Building on our success saving the towpath at Ralli Quays Our Irwell are entering a new phase.

Please join us for a public meeting on Thursday 9th November, 6.30-8pm at Sacred Trinity Church, Chapel Street Salford.

We will be launching Our Irwell as a community organisation dedicated to protecting, progressing and promoting access to the River Irwell and surrounding areas.

The meeting will help shape the direction we go in and what our priorities will be. We want to collaborate with as any other groups, campaigns and individuals as possible because together we are stronger. We aim to build relationships, influence policy, organise celebration events and more because we love Our Irwell and we know we are not alone.

Membership of Our Irwell will be free and open to anyone who shares our aims. If you would like to be more actively involved in running the group we will also be recruiting committee members.  There will also be plenty of other opportunities to contribute your ideas, skills or time in ways that suit you as we move forward. (This will include help with our web presence).

We hope to enable remote access as well so please get in touch if you would like to join us at a distance.

We were overwhelmed by the widespread concern for the towpath at Ralli Quays and believe our victory can be a significant catalyst for more positive changes. Please, join us to see just what we can do to improve public access.

For more information please don’t hesitate to get in touch, email or call/text/whatsapp 07974929589

Please share this invitation with anyone you feel may be interested and help us spread the word about Our Irwell.

Thanks for your support 

Very best wishes
