The Monton Village Community Association (MVCA)
KEEPING MONTON GREEN, CLEAN AND SAFE – and a place you want your family to live and enjoy life…
You are welcome to attend our meetings on the last Wednesday OF EVERY MONTH 7.00 PM at the Memorial Hall, Monton Unitarian Church on the green. Just come along and see what goes on... (see previous meeting minutes below) Meeting dates for 2019
The MVCA is a group of volunteers made up of residents and traders who work hard to keep Monton green, clean and safe. We do a wide range of things:
We organise the hugely successful Summer Festival featuring stalls, food and drink, live music, family activities, games and competitions.
We also organise the Christmas event including a visit from Santa with presents for children, Christmas Carols, festive food and drink and seasonal games and entertainment. Not to mention the Christmas lights and a lighted Christmas tree during the festive season!
Members of MVCA work to improve the environment in Monton Village e.g. the Gardening Group maintain and plant the flowerbeds on the Green, and do weekly litter picks and on the Green and along the canal.
MVCA meetings provide a way for members to raise problems or suggestions to improve the area, which we then take to Salford Council where appropriate. We also challenge Salford council over decisions taken which may affect everyday life for residents and traders.
We raise money for things like the Shackleton kids playground, new paths on the Green, the village noticeboard, the restoration of the veterans shelter and more, all in all making Monton a great place to live.
We maintain this website, keeping you up to date with local news and events and providing a directory of local organisations and businesses; plus the forum where you can chat to other residents.
And much more!
To do all this we rely on the generous support of local residents and businesses who join the MVCA as members. When you join today (click here to become a member) you'll be able to see your contribution all around the village, and when you come to events like the Summer Festival you can feel proud that you've played a part in making them happen.
To say thank you for your support and give you something back, we've arranged something special for you... check out the amazing 'I Love Monton' member discounts and offers!
And of course we would love you to volunteer and help out in a hands-on way with anything that takes your fancy! Or if we can help you with a local project you'd like to get off the ground, do let us know.
