Complimentary Container…

May 9, 2022


As part of Emanuel Whittaker’s pledge to deliver Legacy Projects, we donated a storage unit to The Chatterbox Project in Blackley.

Katie Raw, Regeneration Officer at Northwards Housing, sighnposted the Emanuel Whittaker team to Sue Asprey, who volunteers at The Chatterbox Project. Sue explained that the project needed a portable storage unit, which would free up areas inside. So Emanuel Whittaker purchased and assembled a container inside the courtyard at The Chatterbox Project.

Sue went on to say: We have been able to use the cabin to store all the things we need to do various community outdoor events/fun days and outreach.  We call it our ‘Activities Container’.  It was a much needed resource that we have been trying to fund for over 10 years.  It will directly benefit Chatterbox in supporting the community for many years to come.

We sincerely thank you for all your support and will be eternally grateful. 

The Chatterbox Project, based in Blackley, North Manchester, offers various community activities including: Adult and Toddler group (Tots Stay & Play); Community gardening; Baby exercise classes; Art classes; Food pantry; Sewing course; Morrisso Health Classes, and many more.

Cladding… covered!

May 9, 2022

Emanuel Whittaker pledged to spend £10k on Legacy Projects as part of carrying out the Low Rise FRA project for Northwards Housing.  Northwards Housing Regeneration Officer, Katie Raw, suggested we replace the cladding on the Turkey Lane & Monsall Neighbourhood Centre to fulfil our commitment.

The cladding, which has lasted 40 years, was rotten in parts, and beyond repair. So Emanuel Whittaker were delighted to be able to deliver the much needed replacement cladding and upgrading the building.  Ken Moran, Manager of the TLM Centre is over the moon with the new look.

The TLM Centre, based on the Monsall Estate in Manchester, is a voluntary organisation run by a committee who manage and administer the centre and provide various services for the community, including a Computer Drop-in; Drama Group; Over 50’s Group; Junior Youth Club; Playgroup; Poetry Workshop; Savings Club; Women’s Activity Group; Playscheme; Family Social Bingo and Pop-up Sports.

Legacy Project

Sep 28, 2021

Northward Housing held a Green Day event on the 31st July at Exbridge Walk, Newton Heath.

Emanuel Whittaker has pledged to carry out Legacy Projects as a result of carrying out the Low Rise FRA project.

Our first legacy project was to work with the Community Garden Group at 19 Exbridge Walk.

The rear garden had become overgrown and the communal area at the side was unkempt with timber planters, lawns and shrubs in need of a little TLC.

Emanuel Whittaker Contracts Manager, Greg Martin, visited the site and agreed with Marlene at the Eco Youth Centre that we would clear the rear Garden area, cut back bushes, in effect re-claiming the garden whilst also improving the communal space ready for the 31st July festivities.

You can see from our before and after shots how successful the Legacy Project has been.

Since 2002, Marlene has run ‘Eco Youth’ – a group for local children to get involved with gardening and other activities, has worked closely with us and Northwards Housing on this project. Marlene commented – Thank you so much for the transformation of the community garden, we were able to hold a fun day on the green and the residents all commented on how nice it looks. We had approximately 150 attend, and a good time was had by all. Once again, thank you to Contracts Director John Gallagher and all at Emanuel Whittaker, as well as Scott and Mathew the gardeners from Bradley Green Tree and Garden Services.”
