Official opening of MEA’s new pitch

Pitch opening - Lord Mayor cuts ribbon

We were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Eddy Newman, to MEA in January to ‘cut the ribbon’ and officially open our new full-size all weather pitch. Guests included representatives from the RFU, the Altius Trust Board and local primary schools. Year 7 and 9 MEA students were great ambassadors during the visit too and took part in the tour of the pitch, sports facilities and new Durie Building alongside our visitors.

Award-winning Diversity AmbassadorsDiversity Award - main photo

We are so proud of our Diversity Ambassadors who won the Equality & Diversity Award at the Youth Buzz Awards, an event to celebrate the work of young people from across the North-West.  The award was presented by Manchester Youth Council and representatives from Greater Manchester Police at a prestigious event hosted by Manchester City Council in the Town Hall.  Event organisers were blown away with the quantity and quality of the projects that MEA Diversity Ambassadors had been involved with during 2016-17. The work of the team doesn’t stop there however. They have already made a start on their next project, which includes further training from Foundation 4 Peace and a residential trip to the Peace Centre in Warrington. Foundation 4 Peace believe that it is Diversity Ambassadors like ours who will be at the forefront of the future work on diversity, tolerance and inclusion. Many congratulations to everybody involved!
