Eagles Wing: Stay as friends

This is an update to our post in April 2019 on Eagles Wing since times and venues have now changed.

Special notice: the Monday morning English class is low on students and might close if they don’t get more beginners. So, if you’re interested, or know someone who would benefit, then please get in touch with Sue Arnall. Contact details at the bottom of the post.

Eagles Wing

Eagles Wing are a mutual support group for asylum seekers and local people in Bury, Lancashire. Their aim is to befriend newcomers to our town. Old friends can make sure that no one is lonely and isolated when they arrive here.

They have members from all over the world, speaking many different languages. But a warm welcome is guaranteed to all who join them.

Drop-ins

Eagles Wing do this via ‘drop-ins’ and support groups operated by volunteers throughout the week. They meet in the United Reformed Church and Bury Baptist Church.

There’s lots going on! So, please take a look below for details of where and when they meet. There’s also a great summary of who they are and what’s important to them:

Solidarity Socials

At St John and St Mark’s we’re very pleased to work alongside Eagles Wing and provide a home for the Solidarity Social Parties. These meet on the second Saturday of the month, with one or two breaks during the year.

Stay as friends

If you’d like to come along to the Socials or get involved in their work during the week then you’d be very welcome!

Come as strangers, stay as friends. Indeed.
