After a bit of a break, the Amber Project's Party In The Park is back this year, raising money for the Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Hospital, with a line up of top bands playing all day, and with loads of family entertainment.

There's a funfair, a 5-a-side footy tournament, face painting, games with Groundwork, lots of graffiti artists doing their stuff and loads of stalls.

The Salford Star will be having its usual stall too and we're getting some new t-shirts specially printed which will be on sale to raise money for the mag.

Meanwhile, on stage there's a whole line up of top acts, from the pop sounds of Firouza, James Bennett, Louise Bowyer and Dean Gray, to the indie rock of Hanky Park and Jealous, to the rap of Misfit Music, Coldside Generals, Skittles and TNC. The Silky DJs, as ever, provide the vibes.

The money raised on the day is going towards the Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Hopital in Liverpool, a cause backed by local residents, Janieve Petruzis and David Oldroyd…

"I stayed at the House when my son, Scott, was poorly and met David there because his son, Thomas, was also in Alder Hey" says Janieve "We noticed that the people who had donated the rooms were from Liverpool and we owe them big time. So it will make me and David feel better knowing that that we've given something back to those who helped us.

I'm dead excited about Party In The Park" she adds "And I feel really confident that everyone will pull together and help us raise the money."

Party In The Park is going to be one huge community celebration. Don't miss!!!

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
