Star date: 12th February 2012

VOTE FOR WCML AND THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF DISSENT!

Salford's Working Class Movement Library, on the Crescent, has been shortlisted in a competition to win an artist, who will stage an exhibition of photos of modern dissenters, based upon the Library's incredible archives.

The competition is called the Museum At Night Connect 10 contest, and there's only two other contenders up against the WCML, so we can do 'em, can't we Salford?

For voting details click here…


The Museums at Night Connect10 contest winners get to stage an event involving photographer Simon Roberts, an internationally-acclaimed landscape and documentary photographer who spent a year crossing Russia and was Official Artist of the 2010 General Election. 

This is what the Working Class Movement Library will do with Simon if it wins…

"There are many stories in libraries. Usually they're written down. We want Simon to help us celebrate the image. He will photograph modern dissenters, drawing inspiration from the stories of past campaigns archived in our library. We'll use these, and the public's photographic responses, to debate the power of pictures and writing to move and to persuade".

Sound good? You've got until March 5th to make those votes count. The other two museums are in the Isle of Wight and Guernsey but this is Salford!

Vote via the Working Class Movement Library website –www.wcml.org.uk/connect10

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.

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

'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".
