Manchester is a great city and everything positive about our home should be showcased to everyone on the outside. Instead of always focusing on the bad we should highlight the good (which far outweighs the negative stuff). Of course, we wouldn’t be the first city to highlight the positive, so let’s show the world why we are great! READ MORE
