Never mind the thousands being spent on the `Welcome to the BBC' MediaCityUK events (see here), if you want to know what a really good time is like, head to the Ordsall Community Festival next Saturday for a full day of fun, games and Salford talent.

The day begins with the Ordsall Dog Show at 10:30am  – anyone can enter, just register your dog at 10am – and the categories are Prettiest Pooch, Sit Up and Beg, My Best Friend (kids' dogs), You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks and Fetch. This comp was one of the highlights of last year's Fest!

On the main stage all day are loads of acts including Belly Dancers, St Winifred's, the British Legion Dancers, Company Fierce, the Costa Del Salford DJs and the ever popular Ordsall's Got Talent competition. There's also drumming displays and martial arts displays from Terry's Tigers.

Meanwhile all around Ordsall park will be events and stalls including face painting, street theatre, outdoor fitness sessions, a footy competition for 11 to 16 year olds, a bowling competition and a `multicultural munch with Chef Ray'.

This year's theme is Grow It, Cook It and Eat It with lots of advice on how to do all that, plus a Plant A Plant day in the community garden.

This is one of the top community festivals in Salford – don't miss!!!

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
