Whitehead Gardens Tottington – We Need Your Ideas

Whitehead Gardens Tottington – We Need Your Ideas

The Whitehead Gardens in Tottington were donated by the Whitehead family of Stormer Hill as a memorial to all those who died as a result of the V1 attack on Christmas Eve 1944.

They are now in a position to move to the next phase of the project and bid for further funding to launch the major refurbishment and development project, to include work on the trees, paths, bandstand and the memorial itself.

Here, at Tottington High School, we very much support this project and would very much welcome your contributions and ideas with regards to the restoration and development of this project. Our email address is information@tottingtonhighsch.co.uk

Get creative with Safe4Summer mini project

Get creative with Safe4Summer mini project

Safe4Summer is an annual partnership campaign which takes place over the summer months – involving Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS), Greater Manchester Police (GMP), Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), local councils, plus others – with the ultimate aim to keep the young people safe and provide information to their parents and carers.

To help keep you occupied while spending more time at home as we combat COVID-19 together we would love to get as many young people (aged 5 to 16) involved in this year’s Safe4Summer campaign and with our creative mini project.

The idea is to be as creative as you like while highlighting one of our key themes (staying safe around water, on the moors and on the roads and preventing anti-social behaviour) of this year’s campaign ensuring you include #Safe4Summer in your creation.

Head on over to the Safe4Summer website for more information about staying safe, details about the mini-project, and for the chance to win an iPad.
