Recording our heroes

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes:
from all walks of life.
In general, they share the following characteristics:

  • Bravery
  • Conviction
  • Courage
  • Determination
  • Helpful
  • Honesty
  • Inspirational
  • Moral integrity
  • Protective
  • Self-sacrifice
  • Selflessness
  • Strength

    Many of our residents young and old certainly have these characteristics, here we try to record not just the popular celebrities that grace our media but perhaps the likes of your grandparent, an adult you know or even a classmate.

It seems only fitting that we acknowledge our friend and inspiration John O’Connor.

John was so giving of his time and expertise
helping us all to litter pick safely and promoted a cleaner Wythenshawe across all our wards.

John leaves behind a loving family and so many friends. Our thoughts are with them all at this difficult time.

Thank you John for showing us the way and for being the kind soul that we all admire.

God bless you and your family Sir 🙏🏻🌳
John ROH

In due course, we will add the men and women that have contributed their heroic deeds, work and dedication to the community and history of Wythenshawe and beyond.
