The Poetry Project arrives at Middleton

Middleton Shopping Centre has teamed up with the Poetry Project with the display of one of their beautiful poems at the Happy to Chat bench.

The Poetry Project is the brainchild of James McInerney who began it as a mental health awareness project in 2018. It is a free project that has been doing positive things in the UK and beyond.

The project, which originally started on the London Underground, aims to have positive, empowering and motivational messages on display in public areas to promote wellbeing and raise awareness of mental health issues. It is a community-based project that is all about grass roots and bringing local communities together with messages of hope and support.
