TINGLEY residents are taking a winter trip to wipe away the January blues.
Coun Jack Dunn has donated MICE (Members’ Improvement in the Community and Environment) funds of £300 towards the Eastleigh Residents’ Association’s winter trip.
The group will be visiting Rivington Hall, a 17th Century Grade II listed manor house in Lancashire.
The trip is an example of the range of activities and services which the association offer to residents on the Eastleigh estate to help tackle social isolation, which is often more of a concern in the winter months.
Coun Dunn, who praised the association’s work, said: “The Eastleigh Residents’ Association offers a vital social and support service to local residents and serves as the community hub for the estate.
“I am very pleased to be able to help out by providing some of the funding needed to ensure the winter trip goes ahead. I would like to praise the work of the volunteers and I am sure the trip will be a resounding success.”
