Whalley Range and all Manchester will stand together

The terrible attack at the Manchester Arena on Monday night has cast a deep shadow over our city. There is a particular resonance here in Whalley Range where police have arrested one of several individuals currently being questioned as they investigate the origins of this outrage.
Community groups and leaders, and many local residents are determined to challenge anyone who tries to use the atrocity to drive a wedge between the different communities who live in Whalley Range, and to reinforce the message that we are Stronger Together. Manley Park Methodist Church (116A Egerton Road North, pictured) have opened their doors from 1pm to 9pm today for all local residents to drop in and make whatever response they feel is appopriate, and others gathered at 3pm at Manley Park Play Centre at the invitation of PCSO Ahmed Farooqi. The Carlton Club are holding a fundraising event for victims on Sunday June 4th (see here for more information).
