If you’ve not visited Limelight yet, please do stop by for a visit and help ‘road test’ the building, giving feedback and helping to shape the way facilities and services are delivered.
The new community health and well-being hub is now open with great new facilities and services on offer including a library, nursery, café, hair and beauty salon and multi-purpose event spaces.
An opticians is due to open at Limelight in the coming weeks followed by two GP practices later in October or early November.
Following this ‘soft opening’ period, the development will officially open on Thursday 7th December with a community event from 2pm-8pm attended by local people, community groups, partners and VIPs.
Renowned author, broadcaster and poet Lemn Sissay will be in attendance alongside Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist, and CEO of the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation, Diane Modahl.
Limelight also features 81 one and two-bed Extra Care apartments which are now available for sale and rent, with 21 of these units being made available under the Older People's Shared Ownership (OPSO) scheme.

“Trafford Housing Trust and the whole Limelight team have been working very hard to ensure when we officially open in December that everything works and runs smoothly.
“To help us with that we are going to have a soft launch period where local residents, community groups and partners can access the hub and explore the space, try things out and tell us what they think.
“It’s a very exciting time for us, and the fact we’ve got Lemn Sissay and Diane Modahl lined up for the official launch on December 7th is fantastic.”
