Moss Side Story - Heritage Week at St James.

Over the first week of July hundreds of people got to explore, discover, and learn about the rich and diverse heritage of Moss Side.  For example did you know that a Moss Side Curate invented the very first submarine?

From local school events where the children got to be history detectives, to talks from local residents, councillors, history lecturers, and TV historians there was definitely something for everyone!

A highlight of the week was the focus on Black History in Manchester paying special attention to the role that Moss Side has played.

Thanks to everyone who came along and made this such an amazing week.  Special thanks to all our speakers, and finally a great big round of applause to Jean Wheale our church archivist who headed this up.
