What a great meeting it was last night in the Friendship pub, Prestwich Manchester. The Star committee were well organised. There were five groups , ranging from Finance to Community. The builder’s group, which were the largest was very busy: packed with men offering their ideas and services. One of the proposals, and first on the agenda is to build a Ladies toilet INSIDE! Yes, unbelievable as it is, the Ladies toilet is, and always has been outside, despite protests throughout the years. So this is quite a radical move eh! and I suspect one of many, though they do hope the fabric and history of the place will still shine through. There’s no website yet, but if you would like to help, please get in touch with Margaret via
Last night Nicola from BBC Four came around with her microphone to gather pieces of information regarding the plans for the pub. She will join the Star people on their journey from beginning to hopefully happy end, and maybe a documentary will emerge! It’s clear, from last night’s meeting that ideas and enthusiasm abound regarding to the re making of the pub. A new start awaits ‘The Star’ and people are raring to go: ready to get stuck in, despite the hard work which lies ahead. One thing is for sure, with all the good will, organisation and belief, this project will not fail for lack of trying! The reopening is planned for December. Can’t wait!!!
