What difference does Chorlton Good Neighbours make to me?

Volunteer Peter says “CGN helps me a lot, it stops me wasting my time wandering about. Doing voluntary work helps me meet people”

 New Volunteer Ian adds “CGN is extremely welcoming-you feel like you fit in and make new friends very quickly. It is a great way to engage with the wider community in the Chorlton Area”

Regular member Sylvia says “It’s one of the best. Although it is difficult to get up and get dressed, I would not miss it for the world. It is like coming to a family to chat and laugh together. I Thank God”


For Volunteer Ray “CGN gives me the opportunity to hopefully make a small difference in other people’s lives, and gives me a positive purpose in my own”

Retired volunteer Hilda reflects “It makes all the difference -its everything- meet old friends as I have been coming for years. I find everyone looks after you so well “

Member Dennis says “It’s great coming here because it is very sociable. It’s a bit of fun, and it’s a happy’ get together’ with people. I bring the Chorlton Open up magazines and any information and timetables relating to the buses and the metro as I know people appreciate it”


For Nada “the difference CGN has made is huge. I look forward to going. Everyone is very good, and I get all sorts of help. I am very happy there and have made nice friends.”

Retired community worker, now volunteer, Arthur adds “it makes everyone smile and there is always something different to hear, see and do

New volunteer Lianne says “I love coming to good neighbours – in just a short time I feel like I’ve made some lovely new friends in both the other volunteers and the coffee morning community. It warms my heart to see the ladies and gents looking forward to seeing you each week as much as I look forward to seeing them


Longstanding member June says “it is happy company, an opportunity to learn more about painting and to join in activities that help others”
