Manchester

Ask Manchester

There’s a very active Manchester community over on Livejournal that is basically a help-all for people in Manchester, coming to Manchester or just passing through.

The whole community revolves around people helping other people with their Manchester questions and queries.

Questions like “Does anyone know where I can buy an affordable bed frame and mattress and have it delivered quickly in South Manchester?” or “Are there any Stitch 'n' Bitch groups in Manchester?”

It doesn’t take long for the friendly replies to start appearing, there was a Stitch and Bitch session due to start last weekend (wonder how it went), and a number of suggestions and comment about bed suppliers.

Better still, ‘count_libido’ asked if there were any groups in Manchester who meet up to see films and talk about comics, music, films and the like. It appears that there isn’t, but now it seems that the blogging commuinty could be starting up one of their own.

At the time of writing the latest posting comes from ‘i_am_the_others’ who asks about living in West Didsbury – “(I) have been told by a number of people that its "studenty but nice". I was just wondering how true this is and how it comepares to other "studenty" places” – the answers roll in from people best placed to answer such a question. As to what they’ve said, you’re best taking a look yourself!

I would like to thank Manchester [including BBC Radio Manchester] for their support during Tropical Storm Ernesto here in Miami Florida.
