CREEPY CLIFTON
 

HALLOWEEN HI-JINX

Last Saturday, Clifton went wild and weird as witches and spooks of all descriptions headed to the Livia beauty spot for a creepy lantern lit walk through the forest. There, teens from Clifton Youth Centre acted out scary scenes and told stories, before enjoying a host of Halloween inspired activities at Clifton Amphitheatre…

More here…


The witches walk was organised by the recently formed Clifton United Tenants and Residents’ Association

“The members of the youth centre created a lot of costumes and decorations for the witches walk and they worked really hard” says Association Secretary, Janine Cavanagh “They are proud of what they have achieved and being involved makes them realise that they are an important part of the wider community.”

Denee Cassidy, Area Youth Work manager for Salford City Council’s youth service team, adds “Once a community works together like this, it makes it a nicer place to live, and bringing young people into contact with older people makes them understand the impact of their behaviour on the wider community and where they fit into that community.”

The Halloween event came out of projects at the freshly refurbished Clifton Youth Centre, which got a £500,000 grant from the Government’s Youth Capital Fund Plus, part of the government’s Aiming High for Young People investment. A further £4.2 million has been allocated to Salford until 2011 to provide young people with safe places to go and interesting things to do at times when they are most wanted and needed.

So Salford, get your bids in now!

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".

Star date: 12th July 2018

SLOW WALKING, LOCK ONS AND ALL DIRECT ACTION OUTLAWED BY JUDGE

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.

The judgement, in relation to Cuadrilla's fracking site on Preston New Road, Lancashire, has implications for all anti-fracking protests... "This is an incredibly sad day for the right to protest peacefully" said Jonathan Bartle, co-leader of the Green Party.
