01 Jul Olympic Torch Relay at Moss Side Peace Garden
Last Sunday was Moss Side’s turn for the Olympic Torch Relay and an amazing number of residents were committed enough to forsake their Sunday lie in to get up at 7am in the rain and gather at Moss Side Peace Garden to watch it come through. The flame set off from Media City in Salford at 6am that morning, and we caught it coming down Moss Lane East a little later.
Colin (pictured fifth below), from the Urban Gardening Project, has been working really hard on the Moss Side Peace Garden over the past few weeks, hedging, planting and tidying it all up.
Kudos to the guy in a pink onesie who still came to watch the proceedings from his doorstep!
