Ten years of the Langworthy Cornerstone, and five years of its Children's Centre were celebrated yesterday, the Tentifith Day, as the community came together to recognise one of the few successes of the area's regeneration (see here for background on Langworthy and see here for background on the Cornerstone).

The whole centre was decked out with balloons, bunting and huge other worldly flowers, while former docker Albert Thompson sang his Salford inspired songs in the foyer, followed by a set from Mark Daynes doing his emotionally fired acoustic set.

Upstairs, next to the Reiki room, was a special Secret Garden, pitch black inside except for an amazing array of flowers and foliage illuminated by multi-coloured fluorescent effects. All morning people had been in craft workshops making special loopy hats that lit up on entry into the enchanted space.

"The Cornerstone's manager, John Phillips, asked me to do a really interesting secret garden with a neon theme and we created this" said Fiona Smith, a freelance community artist who does lots of work in Salford "We made all the flowers and leaves with children from the after school club here during three workshops. And today everybody has been making over the top flower hats using lots of fluorescent and neon straws and painting, with the idea that they come in wearing the hats and glow in the dark."
 
It certainly worked, with families queuing down the corridors all day to get a glimpse of the indoor garden. Meanwhile, downstairs, an array of stalls filled the foyer, including the Cornerstone's Kick It anti-smoking campaign, the In Bloom group and the Just Gems jewellery making group. Exotic food tasters were also being served from the Cornerstone's kitchen.

Altogether a top day, as the Cornerstone continues to grow…exotic gardens and all…

so great to see Cornerstones still leading the way in Community Development!! Really miss the SCMP training courses - they taught us how to be confident, stand up for ourselves and get a bit political. Its time to stand together x

What a fantastic event. You will have to show us at Islington Way, how to put on a party like yours. Wishing you all the very best, within the near future.

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?

This week saw a trial 'clean comedy' night at The Vine Cafe in Irlams O' Th' Height, with five comics wowing the sold out venue, and not a swear word or lewd reference in earshot...
