SALFORD GIRL HITS MISS TEEN GREAT BRITAIN SEMIS
 

Star date: 17th June 2012

SWINTON'S LURELLE GOES FOR BRITISH CROWN

Swinton's Lurelle Bancroft has reached the semi finals of Miss Teen Great Britain, beating loads of competitors from around the country. Miss Teen Great Britain isn't a beauty contest and has been set up `to celebrate teenagers and their achievements, and to ultimately find a great role-model' state the organisers. Lurelle says it will be her personality that wins over the judges.

Full story here…


Swinton's Lurelle Bancroft has got through to the semi finals of the Miss Teen Great Britain contest which is looking to find `a great role model' for teenagers. The current crown holder has been all around Europe and Britain, encouraging kids to read, appearing at charity events and going into schools, and Lurelle says that winning would mean loads to her…

"For me to win this would be everything!" she says "Firstly, for the experience and the outcomes from this, and I also enjoy meeting other people and socialising. It would make my 2012 one fantastic, successful year. My family are so proud of me entering the contest and getting into the semi finals. All that I have had is praise, they are very supportive of me."

The organisers of Miss Teen Great Britain are adamant that it is not an old fashioned `beauty pageant'

"We do not refer to Miss Teen Great Britain as a 'beauty contest' as it is about their personality" Holly Ikin, Director of Miss Teen Great Britain told the Salford Star "The aim is to celebrate teenagers and their achievements, and to ultimately find a great role model. Consequently, fifty per cent of the judging is based on an interview with the judges."

So, does Lurelle think that her Salford personality will charm those judges?

"I have a very easy personality" she replies "I am a polite, confident and socialising person. I like to take challenges as they come. So maybe, yes, my personality could win the judges over."

Lurelle tells us that she entered the contest for the experience; and if she gets through to the Grand Final she'll be off to Blackpool on September 30th to compete against sixty girls from all over the country for the crown, £1000 and loads of other prizes. If she wins, Lurelle will be travelling all over Europe in what is a once in a lifetime opportunity. So, should there be a Mr Teen Great Britain?

"I think they should have a Mr Teen Great Britain because this is just for girls" says Laurelle "There are many guys out there who may have the potential for things such as this."

Meanwhile, Lurelle is carrying the torch for Salford. Watch this space, we'll let you know how she gets on…

Good luck to the girl . She's got the perfect opportunity to escape forever this Dead Hell- City. Makes a refreshing change to see a Teen not waddling about the precinct shoplifting or mugging , or pushing an overloaded pram full of screaming feral sprogs .

AS HOMELESS SALFORD MAN DIES UNCLE ASKS WHY IT’S NOT BEING REPORTED

Star date: 23rd January 2018

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.

Now his uncle wants to know why his nephew's death was not reported and says "This is probably going on in every big city in the country, and for me it is just being covered up..."

 A huge 'luxury' apartment block which avoided almost £2million in fees to Salford City Council, plus around 100 affordable properties, and then got a £35million subsidy from the Government as it changed ownership for £110million, has branded itself 'Greengate Manchester'.
