TOP SALFORD THEMED PRESENTS
No 1: Gifts from the Start Creative Christmas Market Stall
Brazenose Street, Manchester

Top art project, Start Creative, is selling unique gifts hand crafted in Salford at its stall at Manchester Christmas Market. Goods range from bread boards made from local trees to ceramics and art works, with different artists featured every week until Christmas. And, as Miranda Hogan discovers, all proceeds go to the great cause that is Start in Salford.

Start In Salford Christmas Market Stall

For anybody looking to find a unique gift this Christmas, head down to the Start Creative stall at the bottom of Brazenose Street at the Manchester Christmas Market.

Start Creative is the trading arm of Start in Salford, a charity that strives to rehabilitate people with mental health issues by helping them to learn different crafts such as pottery and woodwork. The artists are then supported in selling the products which they have made.

Not only do the members study a craft, they also acquire fundamental social skills and get involved with the trading, providing them with valuable experience which supports the transition to working life.

This is Start in Salford's sixth year on the markets, and given the notable success of previous years, they are doing a five week stint, their longest yet. Each week, the stall will feature the work of a different artist, handmade kitchenware being a forte. Wooden chopping boards and attractive ceramics are just some of the items available that would make unique gifts. All of the goods are produced with great care and attention, designed and created by Start in Salford members.

Ben Thomas, creative manager of Start in Salford says, "It really gives our members a feeling of self-worth to see people admiring and buying things which they have created, things that they have made.''

So, avoid the department stores this Christmas and treat somebody in your life to a one off piece, handmade by these talented artists. And welcome the season of good will by supporting this worthy cause. All proceeds go back into the charity to continue Start's great work…

Fantastic to hear what great work Start in Salford are doing, I hope they get lots of support with such a worthy cause. I'll try and get over to the market and visit the stall, time permitting. Well done to Miranda too on another great article.

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

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.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

Star date: 17th April 2018

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.
