Sunday 29th November 12noon
From Henry Boddington's pub

One of the best sights in Salford all year is the annual Santa Scooter Run in which hundreds of bikes and their `Santa' riders start at the Henry Bod pub on Manchester Road and ride to The Christie in Withington to deliver presents. Not to be missed. And bring a present to put in the sleigh...

A brilliant, magical sight happens on the last Sunday in November every year, as hundreds and hundreds of riders dressed as Santa take part in a Christmas cavalcade taking presents to young people at The Christie.

Organised by the Vesperados Scooter Club, every kind of powered two wheeler takes part, from trikes to motorbikes to scooters, all decked out for Christmas. Last year there were also classic cars joining the ride, which was led by a giant sleigh full of presents.

The Vesperados Christie's Santa Run starts from noon at the Henry Boddington pub and anyone going to watch is asked to put a wrapped present or selection box in the sleigh.

I set out in atrocious weather conditions ,to join the scooter Xmas run at The Henry Boddingtons car park,5 minutes before we were due to set off, unfortunately, my bike wouldnt start, & to my dismay, not one fellow scooterist stopped to assist me as I was pushing it to try & start it, everyone left, & I was on my own! I have seen fellow scooterists in the same position, & did not hesitate to help, I WONDER IF IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT I WAS ON A LAMBRETTA? VERY PISSED OFF!

Star date: 18th October 2018

THIS IS OUR HISTORY...

Peterloo, the movie, starring Maxine Peake, was premiered in Manchester last night at Home. The Salford Star was not invited but we did manage a non-exclusive twenty second interview with Salford director Mike Leigh on the red carpet, and a viewing at the peasants' overflow on Deansgate.

NEVER MIND THE BREXITS HERE'S SAVING OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD!

As Theresa May was locked in Brexit talks in Brussels, this morning Salford City Council, Bellway Homes and Swinton residents' Saving Our Neighbourhood group were meeting to try and resolve horrendous problems around the Campbell Road natural green space, where the developer is attempting to build 241 houses.

The Council and Bellway have been brought to the table after constant protests by residents..."I think that's the only way we're going to get anywhere" said Barry Woodling of Saving Our Neighbourhood as residents demonstrated yet again outside the Civic Centre.

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
