SUPER SALFORD SATURDAY BIG SUCCESS

Yesterday's annual Super Salford Saturday event took place in Chimney Pot Park with bands, face painting, an afternoon tea tent and lots of stalls.

Just 100 yards from the trashed Lidl supermarket that Prime Minister David Cameron visited last Friday, this top community event shows the side of Salford that never interests the media.

Despite the clouds literally hanging over Langworthy, Seedley and Pendleton, the community came out to support the annual Super Salford Saturday event at Chimney Pot Park yesterday.

An afternoon tea tent provided drinks and cakes, kids climbed the climbing wall, bounced on the bouncy castle, had their faces painted and did art and crafts on the stalls. At the back of the park, youngsters had a go at the penalty taking competition, while all over the park others took part in a huge fruit treasure hunt. 

On stage, rap, rock, pop and reggae was pumped out by Ruby Anne Patterson, A Me B, Jeremiah Ferrari, Girl Peculiar and Briggzy, with DJ Mezza and Silky DJs providing the vibes and Salford Music Festival supremo, Ed Blaney, compering and giving out the shouts.

Meanwhile, indoors at The Cornerstone across the road, activity tasters and healthy eating treats were available to a background of sounds from singer songwriters, Albert Thompson and Mark Daynes.

A great day. A proper community event. And only one – promotional – police van in evidence. During the afternoon the clouds lifted.

The Super Salford Saturday event was buzzin as usual - great music, great company and fantastic volunteers who help make it happen! Thanks to everyone who was involved and 'respect' to the stage crew - Paddy, Ed, DJs Meza and Silky and of course to the artists across both venues. Thanks to ALL the visitors who were in support of a peaceful and happy event regardless of politics. Peace and Love to the community of Salford :)

Mark Daynes is a tortured genius. Hope he stays focussed on the music

See comment below...It wasn't us who said there were no councillors there. Councilor Loveday is always welcome to buy a Salford Star hoody but we never mentioned whether there were any councillors there or not - that was one of the commenteers.

Councillor Loveday was there for over 3 hours and spoke with many of the residents and organisers. Maybe if she'd bought a salford star hoodie you might have mentioned her presence?

Yes, it was a good day all round, well done to the organisers. Its a pity the Langworthy ward councillors couldnt be bothered to get off their backsides to turn out and show support, but hey whats new!

Wicked day at the park with my wife and kids, we all had lots of fun. Was last in Chimney Pot Park eight years ago working on a film project with Reel Mcr, where I met my lovely wife and we've since had three children. Thank you Salford!

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.
