This Friday, 17th February, sees a mega line-up of musicians and poets at the Star Inn in Broughton, which is a fundraiser for what is expected to be a huge protest in London on 4th March to save #OurNHS.

"The reason we're doing it is to try and get as many people as we can down to the national NHS demo" says Tom Long, who will also be performing his brand of lo-fi slowcore folk at the Star Inn event.

"We feel it's important to send a message loud and clear to the Government that the NHS is not for sale and that there's people willing to fight for it, especially when the uncertainty of Trump and Brexit looms large" he adds "We also feel that keeping the momentum of the anti Trump marches is important, and hopefully we can channel some of that energy into the issues that are effecting us directly in the UK."

Also appearing at the fundraiser are: Irma Vep - `a bluesman for this age of uncertainty'; poet John G Hall - `a colossal firebrand and Wythenshawe's one true beat'; Lucy and Virginia - `classic folksong craft with blissful harmonies'; Milton Pena - `former surgeon, author and NHS whistleblower'; Steph Pike - `tireless activist and political poet'; We Signal Fire - `huge melodies and mighty punk bombast' and DBH - `a master of instrumental song craft which finds the sweet spot between folk, blues and modern American primitive'...

Sounds like a top night with some energy, attitude and, most of all, a great mission to get as many people as possible sticking one on the Tory health cuts...

SALIX HOMES CLADDING TO BE REMOVED AFTER TESTS

After Salford Council announced it was removing cladding from nine Pendleton Together tower blocks, this afternoon Salix Homes has informed residents that it is removing cladding from Canon Hussey Court on the Islington Estate.

In a letter to residents, Salix states that "the cladding sample provided for Canon Hussey Court has been identified as a higher risk component". Work to remove "affected cladding" will begin this week. The Salford Star understands that cladding is also to be removed from other blocks.

NO TIMETABLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF CLADDING ON NINE SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

Star date: 25th June 2017

IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE CLADDING REMOVED IN SALFORD

"There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents..."

On Friday, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett announced that cladding on nine Pendleton Together tower blocks was to be removed... "We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps" he declared.

Yesterday, residents were told by Pendleton Together that the cladding will not be removed until replacement material is ready to go up which could take months. And new fire safety advice has been issued, to leave not stay in the event of a fire.

SALFORD RESIDENTS BEING KEPT IN DARK OVER TOWER BLOCK DANGER

POTENTIALLY TOXIC CLADDING IN OVER A DOZEN SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

At yesterday's press conference, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, said that removing cladding on the nine Pendleton tower blocks was the "right and moral thing to do". Yet Salford City Council knows every component in all cladding in the city which planning officers have passed, and has not disclosed this information.

The Salford Star has investigated, as far as it can, the cladding and materials used in tower block refurbishment and the results are frightening...Materials used on Magnolia Court, Sycamore Court and Mulberry Court should avoid "Exposed heat, flames and/or sparks"; Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court are fitted with panels from the same manufacturer as Grenfell Tower, and there's more.
