A new calendar featuring Crosspool scenes will go on sale in local shops on Saturday 29 October.
Many of the photos in the calendar are once again taken by local residents and there are also some archive shots showing familiar locations looking very different from times gone by.
The 2017 Crosspool calendar is available from Saturday for just £4 from Nest cafe, Crosspool Pets, Enhance, GT News and Charisma and, if they arrive back from the printers in time, at the Open Meeting on Thursday 27 October.
Money raised will help Crosspool Forum funds for local events and improvements to our neighbourhood.
The photos below were taken just before 9am this morning, and show Philip James butchers, GT News, Spar and the greengrocers all open for business. MG Mosley & Sons milk float was also out and about making deliveries as normal.
Local community spirit was also in evidence, with residents assisting with the clearing of snow and making trips to the shops to pick up supplies for neighbours. With the local schools all closed today (Wednesday 1 December 2010), children are also making the most of the snow with sledging and snowballing.
