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!

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

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.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

Star date: 17th April 2018

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
