MAGIC ON SALFORD KERSAL MOOR
 

Star date: 6th October 2013

KERSAL MOOR DAY OF MAGIC AND ENCHANTMENT

Magic On The Moor
Sunday 13th October 1-4pm
Kersal Moor

Kersal Moor has seen Chartist demonstrations, horse racing, hangings and the unworldly brilliant football of Salford City FC but it's never seen anything like Magic On The Moor – a day of enchantment where kids and adults are urged to dress as their favourite fantasy figure.

There's magic-themed stalls, food, treats and music, starring Besses Brass Band – and the Salford Star will be there with some special wicked baby grows.

Even without any added wizards and elves, Kersal Moor has retained its magic through the centuries as the place where Salford people meet for walks, games and total nature nuzzling. Next Sunday, however, the place will be truly sprinkled with fairy dust for Magic On The Moor, a day of magic, fun and fantasy.

Everyone, of every age, is asked to dress as their favourite fantasy figures – no, not the Salford City FC team, but fairies, witches, wizards…Harry Potter, Dr Who, Merlin and more.

There's going to be enchanted crafts, the Fairy Bun Café, Willy Wonka's Chocolate Treats, Kosher Corner, and The Pop Shop `Great Balls of Flour' with their special spellbinding cake pops.

There'll also be stalls selling Zulu jewellery, fantasy figures and much more. Plus the Salford Star will be there with a whole range of wicked baby grows and t-shirts. And in the foreground, Besses Brass Band will be playing, turning up the volume of Magic On The Moor to the max.

"Come sunshine or rain, come thunder or lightening, Kersal Moor is open to the public for 365 days a year, and on 13th October the Friends of Kersal Moor will be there to greet you, as we all say, `Goodbye' to the summer and `Hello' to the autumn" explains Alice Searle of Friends of Kersal Moor.

"This year's annual event is around magic and fantasy, so please let your alter ego escape and appear as some amazing or mystical being" she adds "You will all get a little gift for 'breaking out' of those every day personas and charming us with your creativity. Life at the moment is not too good with cuts and money worries and more to come. This is an opportunity to escape all that for a couple of hours and have a laugh and a smile in a beautiful place with its unique memories."

There's nohing like magic and fantasy to bring out the best in children. The delight on their faces when they experience the enchanted and bewitched is magic of itself. Well done to all connected with Magic on the Moor. http://kidsmagictricksinfo.com

SALFORD COUNCIL SPENDS £32 PER VIEWER ON ITS COUNCIL MEETINGS

Star date: 5th March 2015

THE MOST EXPENSIVE POLITICS SHOW IN TOWN

In the midst of some of the most horrendous cuts in living memory, Salford Council has been criticised for spending almost £10,000 on elaborate screenings of the meetings that were voting in favour of those cuts.

Now, new Freedom of Information statistics show than the Council was spending an average of £32.52 on each viewer, as councillors' grandstanding speeches proved a huge turn-off for residents.

ALMOST NO PUBLIC SCRUTINY OF SALFORD COUNCIL FOR THREE MONTHS!

Salford Council and City Mayor Ian Stewart have not been held accountable in public for their actions and policies for over three months, apart from one meeting about budget cuts.

In January the Council voted to cut the number of its scrutiny committees to five but since then only one of those committees, which are supposed to hold the Mayor and Council to account, has met with the public informed.

SALFORD RESIDENT NINE MONTH BATTLE TO GET INFO ON MAYOR

Following a Salford Star article a year ago about Mayor Ian Stewart's camper van being parked on Council property, Salford resident, Anthony Dowd, submitted a Freedom of Information request to try and get some truth. Salford Council judged his request `vexatious', then refused to answer it until the Freedom of Information Commissioner became involved.

Now Anthony has set up a Salford Council Freedom of Information Facebook group so other residents can share their experiences of fobbed off requests.

SALFORD COUNCIL TO LOSE ANOTHER £1MILLION DEVELOPER FEES AT BLACK FRIARS PUB

Star date: 2nd March 2015

PETER DONE COMPANY TO AVOID £1.2MILLION PLANNING FEES – AND WON'T EVEN PAY FOR A BUS STOP

A company part owned by Fred Done's brother, Peter, has a planning application going to Salford Council this week, to put up two horrendous blocks of apartments by the Black Friars pub in Trinity. Done's company, FICM, should be paying over £1.2million in planning fees plus providing 76 affordable properties but is set to avoid the payments due to `viability' issues.

Transport for Greater Manchester requested that the developer should at least provide two new bus stops on Blackfriars Road – but Done's company, apparently, can't even afford that. The Done brothers' wealth is estimated at around £700million.
