SALFORD PARTY IN THE PARK
 

WHIT LANE PAAAAAAAAAAARTIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!

Depite the constant downpour, Party In The Park was swingin' and singin' in the rain, as Whit Lane's annual Amber Project jamboree kicked off with a didgeridoo and ended with dread town reggae...

In the rain we had on stage the Silky DJs and Nic Kozubik on didgeridoo easing the atmosphere...followed by a set from Briggzy and friends mixing rap with acoustic guitar. Next up came ace street dancers Elliott and Ellis getting the girls right up to the edge of the stage to grab a closer look. 

Briggzy and friends came back on stage showing the promise of a golden future with a totally unique sound, while singer/songwriter John  Herring grabbed the crowd's attention, and Sugarwood rocked away the storm clouds with a storming set. The Unexpectable promised to bring out the sun and the clouds soon shifted, running from his spittin' Salford rap. Last up was Manc based reggae king, Kwabena, who chilled the party out as the early evening vibe lifted and lilted.

Come rain, come shine, The Amber Project's Party In The Park never fails to impress.  This year we had everything from didgeridoo to hard core rap, rock and reggae.  We also had some top local poets railing against the elements to give out words of wisdom, including one which put the warmth into Whit Lane, called Thatcher Is Dead.  And during the whole day, graffiti artists, Kelso and friends, produced a huge top art wall featuring scenes and senses from the area.

We had street dance, we had puppet shows, we had bouncy castles, a fairground, the Screaming Greens stall giving out stress balls in the shape of the earth...and we had the launch of the new range of Salford Star T-shirts which helped raise lots of money towards getting the mag out again. 

Good to see champion boxer Steve Foster supporting the Party and the new vice chancellor of Salford Univiersity popped down and bought a Salford Star hoody.  A great day all round.  Roll on next year and sunny daze...

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
