Urmston's first food and drink pop up market, part of MFDF

Following on from the huge success of the summer pop up markets, with more than 6000 visitors over four afternoons, Urmston’s first Food and Drink pop up market will take place on Saturday 26th September.

In association with the Manchester Food and Drink Festival, this one-day-only pop up market will be hosted on the M41 site on Railway Road, from 10am until 6pm.

With approximately 15-20 local food and drink traders involved, including a selection of retail stalls and a number of licensed vintage mobile bars as well as two Italian Piaggio Apes serving coffee and Prosecco, anticipation for the foodie event is mounting, with 2000 visitors expected to attend.

There will also be up to 10 non-food stalls at the event too, including flowers crafts and home décor.

Urmston is renowned for its independent food and drink scene, offering a diverse mix of restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, bars and pubs offering multi-cultural cuisine, fine wines, premium gin and real ale.

The pop up market on 26th September will showcase the very best of Urmston’s food and drink scene, and is one of only a few fringe events linked to the Manchester Food and Drink Festival.

Mark Rackham, from The Barking Dog says: “We had a phenomenal response to the pop up markets throughout August and the demand for more remains as strong as ever, from both traders and the general public.

“We’re delighted to be hosting our first Food and Drink pop up market in association with the Manchester Food and Drinks Festival; it’s a great platform to shout about and showcase the fantastic food and drink outlets in Urmston and the locality.”

Gemma Marshall, from Gems Delicious Treats, adds: “Having welcomed approximately 1500 visitors at each pop up market in August, we anticipate more than 2000 visitors attending this one alone, which will be incredible for the traders and a great financial boost to the local economy.”

The market, which has been organised by Love Urmston, Urmston Partnership and M41, will be fully Covid-compliant with social distancing measures in place, ensuring all visitors can enjoy a bite to eat and drink safely.

Providing the site for free, the McGoff Group was once happy to support this pop up market, with Paul Danks, Business Development Director at McGoff Group, commenting: “We were thrilled to hear how successful the summer pop up markets had been with the visitor level at each a significant number.  We’re proud to support the local Urmston community and it was our pleasure to provide the site once again.”

Local traders attending the pop up market include; Astoria, The Barking Dog, Café Azul, Craft Brewtique, Evolution Drinks, Gems Delicious Treats, Harry’s, Santorini, JJ’s Caribbean,  Kelder, Maki’s Curry Buns, Pudding & Pie, Roti Food & Liquor Chorlton, Sweetie Trees, The Cheese Court, The Pizza Maker, Urban Preserver, Beaglebum Jewellery, Ixia Flowers, Linda’s Creative Crafts, Scentz with Felicity, Trafford Veterans and Whimsical Wonders by Ruth.

The Food and Drink pop up market in association with Manchester Food & Drink Festival is the latest initiative from Love Urmston, a brand that is dedicated to highlighting all that is great about Urmston.  For further information, please visit www.loveurmston.co.uk or follow on Facebook and Instagram.

New animal rescue centre coming to Carrington soon!

New animal rescue set up at Carrington Riding Centre.

'Changing Lives at Carrington' is a new, not for profit, initiative at the popular Carrington Riding Centre. Organisers want to help abandoned animals such as cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters etc and then rehome them to suitable families.

Stables are currently being converted into appropriate accommodation for the animals with the intention to be up and fully running by the end of the month.

Sharon, owner of the centre said, "We know that a lot of people benefit in every way from being around animals so we will be encouraging some members of the wider to community to volunteer to help with looking after the animals".

"Our college (in association with Trafford College) is starting a Level 1 City & Guilds animal care course in Sept which will enable 16-19-year olds to acquire an important recognised qualification in this industry. We are also staring an alternative provision which will be offering daily provisions involving these animals to you people with special needs or who don't quite fit into mainstream school".

"We feel very excited about this project as we feel it will benefit so many people and of course the animals".

The centre is very much in need of equipment such as cages, runs, blankets, toys, feed etc and of course we are in need of funding.

If anyone would like to donate anything, they can contact organisers by emailing
or by telephoning 0161 969 5853.

There is also a fundraising page set up if you would like to support. Visit www.facebook.com/donate/339941770500850/

The fantastic team in our head offices in Bradford will help you to plan your route out of debt. There are many different ways this can be done, ie, we may be able to arrange a Debt Relief Order if you fit the criteria, or we may be able to help you create a sustainable repayment plan, we may even be able to arrange Bankruptcy if that’s the best route for you. These are just some of the ways in which we can help. Your route out of debt will only become clear once we have a full understanding of your exact financial position.
