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...

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
