Stretford Mall jubilee celebrations.

Stretford Socials, a brand new monthly community event, is launching tomorrow with a range of activities that are suitable for all the family. 

In conjunction with Playmaker events, a local company who are based in Stretford Mall, the Stretford Socials will take place on the first Saturday of every month in The SQ area of the Mall and the adjoining outside area. 

It includes a whole raft of community support activities with a number of local charities and fundraising events taking place, all designed by the local community for the local area.

There will be a fantastic combination of food and drink courtesy of Baby Js Rustic Pizza, a family run pizza stall with delicious wood fired pizzas and garlic bread, Stretford’s Mall’s very own Hive Bar will be selling beer and wine and St Matthews Church will be creating and serving bakes and drinks, with all proceeds going back into the church funds. There will also be a small craft activity based on nature club for families.

Fantastic entertainment comes courtesy of NGL’s two piece band ‘Kid Blue’. The stalls for the first event include:
