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!
