Welcome to the Seedley and Langworthy in Bloom website
An introduction from Jenny Sowerby (the Chair)
"Seedley and Langworthy is an inner city area of Salford located in North West England that has experienced severe and rapid decline in recent years resulting in the area being littered with boarded houses. Many community members left the area for various reasons.
However the greatest asset is the strong community spirit that exists and how the community is working with partners to turn the area around. The Seedley and Langworthy area has benefited from a 10-year regeneration programme which has helped to create a sustainable community through a range of physical and social programmes."
