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

NO TIMETABLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF CLADDING ON NINE SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE CLADDING REMOVED IN SALFORD

"There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents..."

On Friday, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett announced that cladding on nine Pendleton Together tower blocks was to be removed... "We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps" he declared.

Yesterday, residents were told by Pendleton Together that the cladding will not be removed until replacement material is ready to go up – which could take months. And new fire safety advice has been issued, to leave not stay in the event of a fire.

SALFORD RESIDENTS BEING KEPT IN DARK OVER TOWER BLOCK DANGER

Star date: 24th June 2017

POTENTIALLY TOXIC CLADDING IN OVER A DOZEN SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

At yesterday's press conference, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, said that removing cladding on the nine Pendleton tower blocks was the "right and moral thing to do". Yet Salford City Council knows every component in all cladding in the city which planning officers have passed, and has not disclosed this information.

The Salford Star has investigated, as far as it can, the cladding and materials used in tower block refurbishment and the results are frightening...Materials used on Magnolia Court, Sycamore Court and Mulberry Court should avoid "Exposed heat, flames and/or sparks"; Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court are fitted with panels from the same manufacturer as Grenfell Tower, and there's more.
