CAMPAIGN TO SAVE SALFORD DISABLED CHILDREN'S HOME GETS HUGE SUPPORT

Save The Grange campaigners were out with petitions at Salford City's match against Stockport County this afternoon, urging fans to support their fight to get Salford Council to reverse its decision to close the city's only disabled children's home.

Meanwhile, the Kersal neighbourhood was turned into a mini police state at the first big game in Salford City's partially redeveloped Moor Lane stadium that has caused so much controversy. The match ended Salford City 1 Stockport County 1.

The fight to Save The Grange, Salford's only disabled children's home, moved up another notch today when campaigners were present at the big Salford City versus Stockport County match urging supporters to sign their petitions.

Salford Council wants to shut the facility to save 300,000, despite spending over 2million on rental for an empty office block in New Bailey (see here), and campaigners are looking to get over three thousand signatures to ensure the Council has to discuss and respond to concerns about the closure.

A few weeks ago, over three hundred Salford Red Devils fans, including the club's mascot, signed the petitions, and today it was Ammies fans who supported the campaign.

"We're getting a really positive response" said Rebecca Howarth, whose daughter currently resides at The Grange "There's half a dozen of us collecting signatures, inside and outside the ground, and lots of people are stopping and helping to support our campaign."

Meanwhile, at the first big match held at the partially redeveloped stadium, following its controversial planning permission, the Kersal neighbourhood was turned into a mini police state as riot vans and horses were on standby for over 1,700 people who attended. The match ended Salford City 1 Stockport County 1.

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.
