Councillor Alcock has been incredibly supportive of the work of MHDT since we started and we were delighted to have her present to do us the honour of opening the centre.

We had over 50 people attend the MHDT AGM – remarkable, particularly given the cold winter’s evening – thanks to everyone who came along. Trust Director Simon Donovan gave an update on the Trust’s work. Paul Smyth from the creative partnership Something and Son talked through their thinking behind the new community artwork project and shared what they’ve been doing with Skinners’ Academy students as part of the process.
