World Mental Health Awareness Day

This Wednesday, 10th October, is World Mental Health Awareness Day, aiming to get us all `talking openly about mental illnesses, and the treatments and preventions that are open to us'.

The Day will be incredibly embarrassing for Salford City Council, currently in the midst of a campaign to stop its mental health cuts – which has so far seen Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband and the Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, get involved (see here). Campaigners against the cuts are planning something special for the day, which we won't divulge here, to raise awareness of Salford Council's actions.

Elsewhere in Salford, the positive work being done with mental health disorders is being showcased at the ace Start in Salford project, which is holding an Open Day to highlight its creative workshops and some of the stunning art that has been produced.

It's open to everyone to go and have a look around, and begins at 10:30am with guided tours throughout the day. Visitors will see print making, knitting, forest crafts, enamelling and design workshops, music and photography exhibitions, and a staff v volunteers hockey match, with a physical activity workshop by Salford City Reds. There's also activities happening in Start's unique gardens.

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

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.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

Star date: 17th April 2018

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.
