New website for the First Wednesday LGBT asylum seekers support and social group

First_Wednesday_rainbow_flag_vignetteThe preliminary work on the new website for the First Wednesday lgbt asylum seekers support and social group has been completed and the site has been launched at http://firstwednesday.lgbt

The website aims to be an information resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender asylum seekers in the Manchester area, and the content will be continually developed in line with the feedback we receive from new and existing members of the First Wednesday group, as well as from the partner organisations we work with.

‘First Wednesday’ Group – Trip to Llandudno – 7th August 2013

The next event for our LGBT asylum seekers group is on Wednesday, 7th August – meeting at 10.30am in the short-stay car park at Piccadilly Railway Station, in readiness for a day out to Llandudno and Conwy in North Wales.

To find the short-stay car park, from the main concourse with the trains in front of you:

  • turn right,
  • go down the escalators, turn right and down the next set of escalators,
  • and head outside towards the taxi rank.
  • Andy will be parked up, in a minibus, in the car park to the left of the taxis!.

5611000698_81716e0986_zWe will drive over to Llandudno on the North Wales coast – it’s about 2 hours away.  In Llandudno we can enjoy great views of the sea from the elegant promenade, have some lunch, walk down the pier (it’s a mile or so long and stretches out into the sea), and have a drive around the Great Orme (a huge headland which juts out into the sea).

7564867562_0247072324_nWe will then visit the ancient town of Conwy which has a castle and, if we like, we can walk around the walls of this historic place.

We will bring a packed lunch.

If you want to come please let Andy know – he needs to book a minibus!  Obviously there won’t be a meeting in church on that day!
