Star date: 24th November 2011

SHELAGH DELANEY RECOGNITION REQUEST

Independent councillor, Martin O'Neill, is asking for the community's suggestions for ways in which to honour Broughton playwright Shelagh Delaney who died this week.

The Swinton South councillor hopes that Salford Council will "assist in recognising her life and works".

Further details here…


Following the death this week of Shelagh Delaney, Swinton South Independent councillor, Martin O'Neill, responding to a call from a local resident, is asking Salford Council to recognise the Broughton playwright's contribution to culture in this country.

O'Neill has written to all of Salford's councillors and top officers, plus MP
Hazel Blears who appeared in the film A Taste of Honey, requesting support for the project.

"I was saddened to hear of the recent death of (Salfordian) Shelagh Delaney, someone whose work I personally enjoyed" he wrote "I have been asked by a local resident to raise the question of whether the council could assist in helping to recognise her life and works. Anything from a plaque to a mention at the next council meeting… Any comments/suggestions welcome."

If anyone does have any ideas please e-mail Councillor O'Neill at councillor.mo'neill@salford.gov.uk

So here we go again...Now it is your turn..with Manchester..You know we have to work together for all..but retain sperate identity..... councils become too big and remote..We are working on the same side..So can we all have our own I.D. please.

maybe an end of year award for the student who excells in English lit across the city. I also hope the council do speak about this fine Salford lady. Her roots were still in Salford. I would like to say a big thank you to Shelagh for her support when we tried to save a Salford landmark. The Salford Ambassadore.

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.
