Army Presentation 15/1/09

Paul,Lee and Brian

Thursday 15 January

The MTVCA had been extended an invitation by the Army to attend the Manchester Sport City Stadium for a special presentation of their work. Bryan (Chairman), Susan (Secretary), Paul and Lee (both committee members) accepted the invitation to attend.

We joined approximately 300 others from various groups and organisations for what turned out to be an impressive evening which all seemed to proceed without a hitch. The main aim of the evening was to inform the local community of the work in which the army engages at home and worldwide. Through a video presentation and personal conversations with various army personnel who circulated throughout the evening, their objective was met.

Bryan, Paul, Lee and Susan were able to engage with various members of the army during the course of the evening about the work of MTVCA and it was very encouraging to meet with one particular Captain who had knowledge of the great crested newt! We were encouraged to contact the local Territorial Army group who would probably be able to assist us in helping with necessary tasks in around 5 Oaken Clough Terrace and woodland garden as part of their community work.

So, all in all, an enjoyable and profitable evening for us and MTVCA!
