Learn to Grow Your own

Last September we were successful in our bid for lottery funding from the People Powered Change, Big Lottery fund. This was to set up a horticulture project for local  adults seeking employment and primary school children to learn how to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

We will be involving local schools. We also want to hear from people seeking employment.

The funding is enabling us to refurbish an old porta cabin for classroom activities and an on-site toilet. We have a dedicated plot set aside for project participants to gain practical experience and those involved in the project also have the benefit of free fruit and veg.

If you live locally to Sale Moor, the project is open to any adult who is not in employment, including vulnerable adults.

Our project will run on Mondays and weekends from 2 April 2012.

Trafford Leisure - council leisure pages

Places to see and visit around the Sale area - Check out the Sports page as well for local activities.

There are plenty of places in and around Sale where you can spend your leisure time.

There are leisure centres, parks and nature trails and you are only a short drive away from some of the most beautiful countryside in the British Isles - that of the Peak District and the Lake District.

Sale Water Park LakeSale Water Park facility, just off junc. 6 of the M60, provides water sports, a Nature Reserve and large areas of paths and woods for walking.

By following the River Mersey towpath you can travel for miles in both directions. For more info on the Water Park, water sports, the area, its wildlife and coming events being held by the wardens see the links at the top of this page.

With the building of the M63 motor-way in 1972, the extraction of gravel at Sale left a large water-filled hole of about 35 acres.

The lake and surrounding area was developed and in May 1980 it was opened as a Water Park. Trafford Leisure Services operate a programme of activities throughout the year for the public, groups and clubs. Details and conditions of use of the lake are available at the Water Sports Centre where everyone wishing to use the lake must report to.

Facilities now include the Mersey Valley Visitor Centre, Trafford Water Sports Centre, restaurant, car park, nature reserves, events fields, childrens' playframe plus an extensive network of footpaths and bridle ways. Water facilities include sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, model boating and angling.
