Manchester Goes Green

You should really enter into the community spirit every once in a while, as it is all well and good promising to attend street parties and do your bit for Neighbourhood Watch but do you actually turn thought into action? When was the last time you checked on the elderly couple next door or donated some money to local charities? There are so many ways in which you can show human kindness and compassion without turning into a holier-than-thou, pious individual, so why not see what you can do to make someone’s life a little brighter? Maybe you should join the hordes of folk down at ‘Dig the City’ and immerse yourself in all of the fun-filled activities and goings-on. ‘Dig the City’ is the coolest idea ever; an urban gardening festival for all the family. Kids and adults alike can partake in ace workshops and build their own plant pot or even get some handy tips from the specialists when it comes to sprucing up your shrubbery and pruning poppies and primroses. See that pesky Japanese knotweed infiltrating your lawn? Well experts such as Monty Don, Rachel de Thame and even the City gardener himself, Mr Matt James can point you in the right direction and furnish you with fabulous fertilizers, pretty little plants and ingenious implements from the excellent horticultural market on King Street.

From the 3rd to the 11th August drab, dreary Manchester will be transformed in a blossoming, blooming bustling haven filled to the brim with awesome pop-up shops, pubs and restaurants. There is face painting; giant Jenga and Connect 4 to keep little ones entertained and ladies that lunch will be delighted to know that Harvey Nicks are opening a fabulous where to buy viagra buy ativan from europe without a prescription champers bar right outside their doors, much to the dread of their long-suffering husbands. A few glasses of fizz later and they will be unstoppable down the aisles; just don’t give them your credit card! The boys can always mosey on down to the gigantic picnic area and feast on pulled pork, traditional Mexican, Japanese and Greek dishes as well as interesting Asian street food. Yummy! These stalls will take over the whole of Piccadilly Gardens, so tantalising smells and tempting treats will taunt you mercilessly when you are on the met.

Once you have been fed and watered until you can eat and drink no more it is off to the Mitre Hotel to have a lie-down after stuffing your face with oodles of delicious nosh and consuming tonnes of good old fashioned British cider, wine and ale. Our accommodation in Manchester City Centre is situated directly opposite Harvey Nichols, so it is a quick wobble across the road and you are there! Hotels in Manchester City Centre are often located in difficult-to-reach areas and you end up spending a fortune on taxi fares. You and your other halves can kick back with a glass of vino in the most comfortable accommodation in Manchester City Centre and let our hospitable, helpful team wait on you hand and foot. Be warned though; you might never want to leave! The Mitre Hotel is one of the most welcoming and homely hotels in Manchester City Centre and will be packed to the rafters with die-hard foodies and green-fingered types this summer.
