Kersal Moor is certainly coming back to life with events being put on whenever the occasion suits. Now, following the successful summer `beacon lighting' and `plaque opening' (see here), there's a celebration of the Moor's ecology next Sunday.

While Kersal Moor has been feted as a site of historical importance – Chartist meetings, racecourse, Engels etc – next weekend there's a celebration of it as a Site of Biological Importance (SBI) and as a conservation site.

The Fruits of the Earth Festival will see people from the community planting English apple trees, a visit from Barn Owl Bill exhibiting his majestic eagle owl and small burrowing owls, a honey stall with free wild flowers seeds donated by the Co-op to help the bees, Irish and Eastern European Klezmer music from the Yiddlesticks, the Gaia café selling home-made fruit cake and pies, and lots of stalls and activities.

"The event will focus on the importance of our natural inheritance with all things that grow, are really good for us and we need to preserve" says Alice Searle of Friends of Kersal Moor "The central event will be the planting of fruit trees by those members of the public agreeing to be a 'Tree Guardian'. Choose your tree and the Salford rangers will plant with you. What an honour!"

To get to the Fest just follow the flower path at the edge of the Moor…

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
