New Pure Café Coming to Manchester – Have Your Say!

Posted on the 3rd November 2020

The sadly neglected building you see above, will soon be transformed into a lively community hub run by Manchester Vineyard. Inside will be a brand new Pure café!

We want your say!

We are calling on people of Ardwick, Longsight, Rusholme and any potential customers of this café to take our short survey. You can let us know what you would like to see on our menu, prices, opening times, social groups and more. It only takes a few minutes to complete, so please get clicking and let your voice be heard.

422 Community Hub

The new 422 Community Hub, scheduled to open early in 2021, will offer a vital support network for people in the area with the café at its heart. Manchester Vineyard will be restoring the Stockport Road building, which has been unused since the closure of Longsight Youth Centre in 2010. In partnership with many groups Manchester Vineyard wish to help reverse the effects of child poverty and help a hurting community flourish.

Our Café Vision

In the café we will have new clients from the area who will learn cooking, baking, customer service and more.

It will be a social space hosting a variety of support and outreach groups to help people in the community. It will have an affordable menu and a homely atmosphere where people can come for support, or just to chill.

In partnership with Pure Innovations, Manchester Vineyard are delighted to write another chapter in the rich history of Longsight Library and Public Hall. Originally built in 1850 following the cholera epidemic it is well used to serving the community in challenging times.

Phase one will see the reopening of the cafe with affordable, interesting, nutritional, healthy food and beverages on offer. There will also be programmes to help combat holiday hunger. Quickly following on from that the hall, meeting rooms, offices and education rooms will be reopened to further enhance the wellbeing of the community.

Activities & groups available will include:

  • Social Level Sport
  • Art & Crafts
  • Music & Performance
  • Health Care Support
  • Social Groups
  • Welfare, Finance, Digital, Job seeking Advice

And many more.

At Pure we are so excited to be a part of this brilliant project that is coming to the Ardwick / Longsight / Rusholme area! Please do complete our survey, so we can make the café the best it can be for you, the customer.
