Networking Newsletter: Issue 37 (December 2001/January 2002

Welcome to the 37th issue of the Networking Newsletter, and the last issue of the year.

I think you'll agree with me that the amount of campaigns covered has blossomed during the last twelve months and that the Networking Newsletter is one of the most useful resources for networking between people working for positive social change. Next year promises to be even more exciting. The Networking Newsletter Project has received grants from the Acorn Trust for outreach work to help us make contact with more organisations and individuals and we look forward to covering more good work, whether it's local tenants fighting to improve their local environment, parents seeking speed restrictions outside their children's school, small groups of friends fighting prejudices of disabilities, race, creed or religion, or any number of other good causes.

We're also holding an afternoon of networking on Saturday 26 January (from 2pm in the main hall of the Friends Meeting House, Mount Street). This will be an excellent opportunity for all those in Greater Manchester who're working on the environment, peace, development issues, women's rights, disability, animal rights and social justice to meet each other, share experiences and skills and promote themselves to the public. Already we've had many groups ring us up wanting to book a stall. Please put this date in your diary now, pass the information on to others, and reserve your place by returning the enclosed booking sheet. A full report, with a small section on each group attending, will be mailed out in February. More details, and updates, are given on the Network for Success web page.

Finally, I'd like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year,

Michael (signature)
