WCHG Helps Support Local Theatre Company

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group is proud to show their support to a local theatre company.

The Group has agreed to sponsor ‘On Ya Bike’ for the next two years, which allows people from across Wythenshawe the opportunity to showcase their talents through a whole variety of projects based at Wythenshawe Forum.

‘On Ya Bike’ has been running for over 10 years and is made up of local amateurs and volunteers, who each year put on a number of shows which always prove extremely popular with local people.

Chairperson of ‘On Ya Bike’, Paul Brownsell said,” We are delighted to have the support and sponsorship, from Wythenshawe Community Housing Group. This allows our drama group to invest in new stage equipment, also maintaining our high standards in all theatrical areas for our productions and enhancing our stage performances for the community of Wythenshawe.”

Councillor Glynn Evans said; “This is a real boost for all the volunteers who have given so much of their time over so many years for the benefit of the community. Their enthusiasm and desire to promote affordable admission prices is being recognised by the ticket demand, their last Christmas production of Snow White Pantomime all 13 shows sold out. On Ya Bike would like to say a huge thank you.”

Chief Executive of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group Nigel Wilson said, “There is a huge array of talent here in Wythenshawe which we want to support. It’s fantastic to see local people of all ages putting on such entertaining shows and it helps to reinforce the strong sense of community spirit within the local community and is also a fantastic opportunity for local people to showcase their talents.”
