MISS TEEN SALFORD WOWS JUDGES
 

Star date: 28th October 2012

LURELLE DOES SALFORD PROUD

Over the months the Salford Star has been following the progress of Lurelle Bancroft who got to the final of the Miss Teen Great Britain competition, being crowned Miss Teen Salford en route.

We're pleased to say that Lurelle did really well in the Grand Final, held a few weeks ago in Blackpool, placing in the top 25 girls in the country.

Miss Teen Great Britain was set up to find `a great role model for teenagers' and isn't a mere beauty contest. Contestants had to do all sorts of things, like raise money for charity, devise their own PR campaigns and demonstrate their ace personality.

Lurelle Bancroft, a pupil at Buile Hill Visual Arts College, certainly wowed the judges of the contest, firstly getting through to the semi finals, where she was crowned Miss Teen Salford, and then making it through to the Grand Final a  few weeks ago, where she competed against 65 girls from across the country for the ultimate title of Miss Teen Great Britain. Lurelle did brilliantly, coming in the top 25 and winning a place in the forthcoming Miss Teen Galaxy England.

"I was really proud to represent Salford and I think I did amazingly well in the competition considering this was my first time ever doing a pageant" she says.

There were three rounds in the final, casual, fashion and evening wear, followed by the judges asking questions…

"I was asked things like 'Tell me about yourself''When was the last time you watched a film?'…and 'If you were to win Miss Teen Great Britain 2012, what would you do with your title?' And then it was time for the results" Lurelle recalls "Unfortunately I didn't win but I came in the top 25. I feel I've done Salford very proud as well as my family and friends."

"I am still going to continue making as many appearances as I can with my Miss Teen Salford 2012 title as I have this for a year" she adds "I'm really looking forward to what comes to me in the next year and the years to come."

Lurelle will be competing in Miss Teen Galaxy England in March and we'll keep following her progress.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
