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

Think the person called "WROTE" needs to make their mind up, was there a councillor there or not?????

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 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.

'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".
