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 firstname.lastname@example.org
