It is with great regret that we have to announce the stepping down of Hugh Barrett from the St. Vincent’s board of Management.

He is one of the founder members of St. Vincent’s when it was set up in 1971, by members of the St. Vincent De Paul Society, a voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty.

Hugh has been involved St. Vincent’s for over 40 years, he started on the board as Honorary Secretary from 1971 until he became Vice Chairperson in 2006 up until this year.

Hugh has been kept busy over the years as well as being a board member he is also Manchester City Council Labour councillor for the Sharston area of Wythenshawe, he was also Lord Mayor of Manchester 2000 – 2001

Hugh was also heavily involved in Development issues and regularly attended committee meetings and this also gave him a chance to discuss with the team about development plans.

Hugh has now stepped down from the Board and we would like to thank him for his many years of contributing energy, advice, ideas, hard work, time and compassion of our customers.

St.Vincents Ucan Centre gets a makeover

St.Vincent's Ucan centre underwent refurbishment recently having been fitted with a brand new kitchen, which looks great

The centre that is based in the Moses Gate area of Bolton is there to provide a community focal point, where residents can access a number of resources and training

So a big thank you to Jamieson Contracting Ltd of Manchester for supplying the kitchen units and fitting the kitchen with no labour costs, they have done an amazing job

The kitchen will be of great use to all staff and residents who use the centre whilst they pop in to use the computers with free internet access, or get help and advice from staff members
