The Langworthy Cornerstone has packed a lot of history into its ten years – art shows, concerts, learning activities and regular fun days, as well as being a doctors surgery, a nursery, a café and a meeting place. It's where Hazel Blears launched her ill fated attempt to become Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, and where the Salford Star briefly had an office. Most of all, it's a centre for the community that's had its ups and downs over the years but is definitely on the up at the moment.
To celebrate its tenth birthday and the fifth anniversary of its Children's Centre, the Cornerstone is having a `Tentififth Day' this Saturday, with a flowered up theme. The Day will include lots of activities, tasters, food, stalls, prizes, competitions, entertainment for all ages and prizes for the best flowery hat creations, plus a mysterious night garden with a hidden secret. Hope it's not Hazel Blears!
"It is great to be managing such a lively and vibrant place and to be able to recognise how the centre has developed over the years into providing a lot of useful services for local people" says Cornerstone manager John Phillips "We will be having a display about all the things that have happened at the centre since it opened, and a memory book so that people can tell us what the centre has meant to them. Everything will be on a very flowery theme so get making those hats, there should be some surprises on the day as well…''
