There's something for everyone at Kersal Moor on Monday, as the afternoon sees a celebration of the Chartist Commemorative Stone Plaque on the edge of the Moor, while in the evening there's a traditional Kersal Moor beacon lighting to celebrate the Jubilee. There's also lots of other family events in the area. So many, that you might need the ubiquitous Diamond Jubilee sick bag.

"On Monday 4th June there will be two Jubilee celebrations on Kersal Moor!" says Alice Searle of Friends of Kersal Moor "One will be for the person who has everything, and the other will be in memory of people who had very little."

Balancing the Jubilee with stark reality, there will be a very non-Jubilee family event at 4:30pm with a celebration of the Chartists, as the commemorative plaque to the 19th Century working class heroes gets re-positioned to the edge of the Moor and officially re-opened.

And then, starting at 8pm, there is a Jubilee celebration on the Moor, culminating with the lighting of a beacon at 10pm.

"Kersal Moor is where bonfires to celebrate national events have traditionally been held: 1897 for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, 1911 for the Coronation of George V, and 1937 for the Coronation of George VI" explains Alice Searle "So to continue this tradition there will be a Beacon lit at 10pm on in recognition of the present Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
.
"But Kersal Moor has also been the place for the ordinary man and woman; a place of simple pleasures, a place where the homeless have slept out, a place where now people walk to enjoy its quiet green peace" she adds "Most significantly, it was the place where 30,000 workers met in 1838 to demand the vote!

"In the dirt and heat of the Industrial Revolution it was these people who turned the wheels of industry, who dug the coal and built the canals" she says "These people created the wealth, yet they had no say in the way the country was governed. Both these events should be recognised as part of our history. They are open to all. Take your pick as to where your loyalties lie!"

Elsewhere in East Salford on Monday there's a free Family Fun Day at St Boniface Social Club, Lower Broughton Road, from noon until late, starring the Salford Stars Morris Troupe (see here) with a raffle, tombola, games and family fun. The Sports Village on Littleton Road, Lower Kersal also has a Family Event on Monday.

Tuesday sees a Family Fun Day at St Sebastian's Community Centre in Charlestown.

With all the official Salford Jubilee events, plus other street parties, and all that cake, biscuits and drink, you might just be needing the Diamond Jubilee Sick Bag – a special souvenir sick bag designed and signed by artist Lydia Leith and available on E-Bay in blue or red. £2.50 (£1 p&p) – click here to order this unique item…

How often do we have a Jubilee eh? I'm working class, I very much appreciate and understand what my ancestors suffered and achieved. However, for fecks sake, I'm so glad I went out over the weekend and waved a flag for her Madge. As for democracy. Do you really have any faith in it? I don't, not after seeing pictures of John Prescott playing bloody croquet at his "official country mansion". You may, or may not, like the Queen, but no one can accuse her of being a class traitor. I love this site, you do a sterling job, but sometimes...you know...you really need to cheer up chaps.

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

TRUMP GO HOME BUS HITS SALFORD

Star date: 13th July 2018

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
