Arts and Crafts Awakening meets Locality

Arts and Crafts Awakening is being set up as a social enterprise to promote Middleton Heritage, including Edgar Wood, the Parish Church and Long Street Methodist Church and School. This evening we met our advisors for the next few months, Zoe, Lindsey and Chris from Locality, the nationwide network for community-led organisations.

Zoe, Lindsey and Chris are helping us think through how best to set up the group and find the right balance of community activities and businesses for the Long Street Edgar Wood buildings.

We planned three workshop days between now and Christmas –

Wed 26th November 5-7pm,

Thursday 4th December 5-7pm and

Thursday 11th December 5-7pm.

If you are interested in Middleton’s Heritage generally or the Parish Church, Long Street Methodist or Edgar Wood specifically and would like to know more, drop us a line at
