SALFORD STAR MOVES INTO NEW OFFICE AT ANTZ JUNCTION
 

Star date: 12th October 2014

SALFORD STAR HAS A NEW OFFICE

Salford Star has a new office in the historic old Chloride HQ, now situated in the Junction Eco-Park near Clifton railway station and Pilkington's Tiles.

The office is part of the Antz Junction social enterprise centre and the base means that we can now entertain visitors and have a landline phone.

The Salford Star hasn't had a proper office for six years, meaning we've been operating out of back bedrooms and community cafes around the city. Now we are pleased to announce that, thanks to Antz Junction, we have a base, meaning that we can meet visitors, take on more volunteers and our readers can phone us on a landline phone.

The office is situated on the first floor of the Antz Junction social enterprise centre in the old Chloride HQ now situated in the Junction Eco-Park near Clifton railway station and the Pilkington Tiles shop.

The full address is: Office 6C, Antz Junction, Unit 10, Junction Eco-Park, Rake Lane, Swinton, Salford M27 8LR

The landline number is 0161 728 7611, while the mobile is still 07957 982960

Antz Junction not only supports social enterprises but also helps people to get back into work. Its ethos is "empowerment, to make decisions for one's self, set actions, fulfill potential and purpose". A perfect fit, we think, for the Salford Star and its parent community group Mary Burns.

Salford Star editor, Stephen Kingston says: "This is great because it now means that we can maybe take on apprentices or people who want work experience in the media. We get inundated with requests every year and we've never had anywhere to house people so this will hopefully give Salford people an opportunity to work more closely with us.

"It's also going to be a great help as we rush to get the printed re-launch of the magazine out on the streets" he adds "Thanks to Antz Junction we now have a solid base to grow."

If anyone would like to visit the new office just give us a bell first to make sure we're in

Just read Alice Searle's message, are there any more tee shirts available? I have one already and wear it at folk clubs around the country - amazing how many Salfordians respond to it!

Congratulations Stephen and the team. Just reward for all your hard work and dedication to reporting the unacceptable face of Salford council and the many other issues of interest and importance to local people. PS I think the post code for your new address you have on the website may be incorrect. I think it should be M27 8LR.

Now the Star has a home it will be necessary to improve the fund raising for this important local source of info. So if you want a Star T shirt, a Star mug for those mid morning brews or are interested in back copies of Star Mags, just get in touch. We are happy to supply and even have a stall at your event; without a charge of course! All this under our commercial partner 'Mary Burns.' Leave a message and tel no and I will get back to you.

Brilliant news! Wish you luck! You deserve to have a Base after all the effort and determination you have put into your paper. Enjoyed meeting Steven Kingston last month with my group at (Hull College studying Ba journalism&digital media), he gave me a very good insight into the local media industry and the work his group has done was honored to have the opertunity. Take care! Keep writing :)
