Hello! I'm Jemma and I have lived in Manchester/West Didsbury for 10 years now. What started off as a necessity supporting me during my MA in Visual Anthropology at UoM has turned into a happy accident in that I now welcome and host people to my little neighbourhood in South Manchester! I am often found travelling around the world/North West working with and filming community groups and old people when I'm not cycling round Didsbury with bagels and laundry! Doing Airbnb has brought the world into my home an (Website hidden by Airbnb) doing it and helping people enjoy their time here.

Any questions do ask!
