Star date: 7th May 2012

ALBION TOWERS, SALFORD – CHILDWALL, LIVERPOOL

Louise Charity Walk
Starts 8am, Fri 11th May
Albion Towers, Cross Lane, Salford 

This Friday, the manager of the Windsor Albion Co-operative is to walk over 30 miles to Liverpool carrying a symbolic torch to both commemorate the work of Terry Edis, who died last November after helping many tenants groups take control of their own housing, and to raise money to help tenants in the future.

Full details here…


Tenants are increasingly having the right to manage their own housing, and Terry Edis, who died last November, was one of the main movers and shakers of that philosophy. To commemorate his work, and to raise money to help future tenants form their own management co-ops, Windsor Albion Co-operative manager, Louise Clarke, is to walk from Salford to Liverpool this Friday carrying a symbolic `Terry Torch'.

Louise will leave Albion Towers, on Cross Lane, at 9am this Friday and walk 29.7 miles to Childwall Valley EMB in Liverpool, arriving around 6pm.

"The walk is to remember a great man Terry Edis who has helped many struggling council tenants to get together and to take power away from councils and give it back to the tenants" says Louise "The walk is very much about raising funds to help support tenants to take control of their communities in a positive and productive manner."

Louise's walk is one of many Terry Torch walks which are carrying the torch around Tenant Management Organisations across the country, ending in Stratford upon Avon in June for the National Federation of Tenant Management Organisations Annual Conference.

Louise is asking people to donate money for her Salford to Liverpool walk to which will go to the new Terry Edis Trust, helping future tenants to manage their own housing.

Louise Terry Torch Charity Walk
Starts 8am, Fri 11th May, with tea and biscuits and information on the 1000 Communities Campaign which raises awareness of how tenants can get involved in management
Albion Towers, Cross Lane, Salford.

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
