It may be raining outside…but in Langworthy next Saturday sun and fun are guaranteed as fiesta comes to Salford, and the Costa Del Cornerstone

"We usually have an annual event at the Cornerstone based around promoting health and wellbeing but we always try to make it a bit of fun" says John Philips, manager of the Cornerstone "In the past we've had Daleks here and Klingons and all sorts of things, so this year we thought we'd do a holiday theme – with flamenco, maracas, drummers, deckchairs and even a beach."

To get the kids in the mood there's free sombreros and maracas, with loads of exotic experiences including a rainforest reptile encounter room, where they can meet and even feed snakes and lizards, and a coral reef room where they can make fish and undersea creatures. There's also loads of competitions, a treasure hunt, face painting and an abstract art competition hosted by ace artist Gordon Wilson, where everyone can contribute to a big painting – and have a chance to win the final canvas.

Meanwhile, J Stars, which hosts street dance classes at the Cornerstone*, will be doing taster sessions and special performances by its crew between 2pm and 2:30pm.

"We're going to be showing off our routines and teaching some street dance to anyone who wants to join in" says J Stars' Jaynie Powsney "There'll be lots of energy, lots of smiles and lots of fun to make you want more."

Top flamenco guitarist, Dave Hill, will also be entertaining Cornerstone tourists, and the holiday theme continues with taster sessions in zumba, curling, salsa and lots more. There's also tasters of tapas and `guess the ingredients' cocktail sampling.

You can even buy Salford souvenirs of the incredible Costa Del Cornerstone trip to take back to the folks at home, with stalls selling jewellery and cards, and the Salford Star flogging its latest batch of special `Salford Star' summer baby grows and t-shirts.

A Salford fiesta it may be – but don't expect to bring back any duty free. There's help on hand to quit smoking and get a better healthier lifestyle. This might be one day trip that could also change your life.

"Even if it's raining outside, it's going to be sunny in the Cornerstone next Saturday – we guarantee it!" John Philips smiles "If you're brassic, just imagine you're in Spain or Tunisia…on the Costa Del Cornerstone…"

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
