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

THE CHRISTIE FACING £7.5M CUTS AS CANCER PATIENT MADE TO WAIT FOR BED

Star date: 7th December 2016

NO ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL...

"Is that what we're being reduced to? Just die quietly and don't make a fuss? No!" Jean from Langworthy

On Saturday there is a `No room at the hospital' rally in Manchester against NHS cutbacks in Greater Manchester. In the run up, the Salford Star presents a series of articles highlighting the state of the NHS.

We start with a Salfordian cancer patient at The Christie who has experienced cancelled appointments and long waits for treatment because there were no beds. The Christie states that its £7.5million cuts this year won't impact on the quality of care. But this patient's friend says `Enough is enough!'

Today, a YouGov poll found that only 18% of people trust the national press to tell the truth, unsurprising after some truly disgusting Daily Mail headlines recently.

Now a bunch of alternative national and local media groups, including the Salford Star, have backed The Media Fund, an online, ongoing crowdfunding platform that collects monthly donations, and distributes them to independent and grassroots media.

SALFORD PUB SAVED FOR COMMUNITY BY NORWEGIAN MANCHESTER UNITED FAN

Star date: 5th December 2016

THE `B' HIVE SURVIVES

The `B' Hive pub, off Langley Road South, has been saved for the Whit Lane community by a Norwegian Manchester United fan who loved the place too much to see it fall into the hands of a developer.

The `B' Hive was destined to be converted to student flats or demolished until Ronnie the Norwegian arrived like Ole Gunnar Solskjær in Fergie-time to rescue the much loved boozer.
