Good Morning everyone!
Jane and I from Get-Experienced- http://www.4ct.org.uk/ had great fun and chatter with a lot of semi-surpressed giggles yesterday recording our slot for “Get Connected”, the radio show- http://northmanchester.fm/wednesday/ hosted by Sonia de la Fuente-Business Connector from –http://www.bitc.org.uk/member-company/fujitsu Fujitsu’s-Business in the Community.
The four of us gathered together in the fantastic studio based at Central Park Manchester- (who knew that there was) such a breathtakingly contemporary metropolis built on the land that was once Monsall Hospital? I’m reliably informed it even has it’s own Tram stop!

My City never ceases to amaze me, I’ve always loved it’s ability to grow and expand, not just with it’s magnificent architecture and it’s adaptations to industry, but together with it’s blending of cultural diversity and sheer showmanship, it makes for one rocking city!
That’s one way to describe it, but being a mancunian born and bred, I’ve always thought of it as ‘a series of little villages’ that happen to be called Manchester, I’ve lived in different parts of it and abroad throughout my life, but I always return to the north and the ‘three villages’, I have spent most of my life in Crumpsall, Blackley and Charlestown.
It is the people of these villages that make our city strong.
Yesterday I found myself in the company of two heroes from the village next to me where I often shop, Cheetham Hill.
