Eden Bus comes back to Benchill

Published on July 24, 2013

Eden Bus is returning to the streets of Benchill, 13 years after it became the first neighbourhood to see the bus in action. 

The bus will start visiting streets around the area on Wednesday evenings as part of Ivy Sharston’s outreach to young people in Wythenshawe, following a successful trial run by Genetik students in May. Daytime beauty and nail activities and an evening youth club saw dozens of young people discovering the bus for the first time.

Benchill is the first of two new regular Eden Bus sessions launching in Manchester this summer. The other will be part of Eden Merseybank (also in South Manchester).

New Bus Manager Sid Williams says the search is now on for volunteers to join the teams: ‘As well as being good to connect with the community, it’s also be an excellent opportunity for anyone exploring a calling to join Eden long term.’
