Pints in the heart of NQ, a walk through to just soak in the atmosphere (who could even get a table anyway, am I right?) or staying at home with the sunshine. However the weekend looked for you, we hope you got to see your friends, family and the people you love, and feel a little bit of normality again.
This month we've got heaps of things to try at our Social Clubs - from Plant Club (the first rule about Plant Club...tell everyone about Plant Club.) and Veggie Cooking through to Social Club classics, Desert Island Discs and Pub Quiz! See our full list below. If you haven't signed up to join our Community Network yet, why not? Head to www.manchestercares.org.uk/get-involved.
