0161 Community cinema trip for Peterloo
4th November 2018 we had over 30 of us go to the cinema in central Manchester to watch the brilliant Peterloo film that had just come out.
“With this richly intelligent, passionate movie, Mike Leigh has fought a brilliant rearguard action on history’s political battlefield.”
We subside cinema tickets when possible and will be doing more showings soon!
0161 Community Fun Day at Oldham Library
27th October saw us host our fun day, with a mass load of events going on. Boxing, MMA, graffiti, badge making, football and more. It was absolutely brilliant, people from all over the town and all ages came to it, such a great and vibrant day, here’s to the next one already!
Our City United // 0161 Community // FARE – Autumn football tournament
On the 13th October we held a brilliant football tournament in conjunction with FARE as part of their week of action focusing on these 3 points.
1) Increase public awareness and tackle discrimination in football.
2) Act as a means for social change through unified action in football.
3) Develop and try out ideas and new practises that challenge exclusion.
There was a showing of a film about Lampedusa F.C. in Hamburg followed by some delicious curry. Holy Trinity F.C. ran out eventual winners!
0161 Community St Georges Day
0161 Community’s first event up at Tameside Stadium was held on the 22nd April 2018. A St George’s Day celebration in collaboration with other local groups and a variety of different football teams.
A day celebrating equality and diversity, with 7 a side football in the morning followed by world cuisine and music by the ever wonderful Joe Solo in the afternoon.
A fantastic event, with a whole host of people joining in and coming down to join us in celebrating diversity on this St Georges Day, the trophy taken home by the brilliant United Glasgow team! Looking forward to seeing who will take it next year.
0161 at Oldham Carnival
We held a stall down at Oldham Carnival this year, and what an absolutely beautiful and brilliant day for it. We got loads of people signed up for our graffiti and boxing classes that we have coming up.
With women, men, children from all races and all places getting involved, this is the community action we should all be doing. Great to see so many families and groups coming and all getting involved with some graffiti or boxing.
We spoke to swathes of locals and got some great stories about growing up in the streets of Oldham, we will be using all of this for our future walking tours.
Thanks again to the wonderful organisers from Oldham Carnival for everything they do. Looking forward to going back again for sure.
0161 at Kurdish Football Tournament
The 0161 Community teams first outing was down in Tottenham at a Kurdish community event, absolutely fantastic stuff. We came away with the trophy for Fair Play, hopefully we can keep the title next time and all. It was an awe inspiring day with all members and cultures from surrounding communities coming together, we managed to dance away the evening enjoying some Kurdish food, looking forward to inviting them all up to Manchester soon.
