Today has been declared ‘We Love MCR’ day by the ‘I Love MCR‘ campaign, which was launched by a partnership of local organisations in the wake of the recent disturbances in the city.
As a gesture of support for the campaign and along with many other local employers, the University will be allowing staff to leave work at 4pm this afternoon so that they can show their support and go out and enjoy all that Manchester has to offer. Subject to suitable arrangements being put in place to maintain essential services…
Activities are planned across the city centre, but most will take place between 4pm and 6pm in Exchange Square. There will be a stage set up for speeches and performances, stalls selling food and drink, places to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere and some mass participation activities. Current weather status: miserable, grey and overcast with rain imminent. Feel the love.
In other news I have started tentatively looking for a second hand hardtail with rack mounts suitable for fitting a child seat. Might have to start looking a bit harder now, I think Marc needs introducing to the wonderful world of bikes.
