The Lower Kersal Young People Group are no strangers to making films and plays. Productions such as A Breakfast Carol, Top Deck and You Can't Buy Time, were met with critical acclaim and deservedly so. Then and Now, is their latest venture and promises to be even better.

The LKYPG is a group organised and run by Tommy and Lesley Lever from their small base at St Aidan's Church on Littleton Road, Lower Kersal. In association with ReelMCR, a community media organisation, this latest film is designed to make younger members of today's society aware of the cause, and the outcome and effects of WW1.

It focuses on the moving story of the heroism and ultimate fate of the 1st Salford Pals regiment in action at the Battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916. Without giving away too much of the plot, the story moves back and forth through time to try to reflect the attitudes of the people in that time 1914-15 - and contrast it with attitudes today given our hindsight.

It examines the thoughts of today's young people towards those young men who made the ultimate sacrifice on that dreadful day just over 100 years ago.

"It was a great experience, but also very harrowing getting in the mind of the young soldiers and understanding their thoughts in the final hours within the trench" says Sean Massey, 21, who stars in the film.

Written and directed by Tom Charnock and edited by Stuart Blair, with a cast comprising local young people, Then and Now is being premiered at The Lowry, before being entered into the Imperial War Museum Film Festival 2017.

Tickets are free. Just phone Tommy Lever on 07748 774409 or Lesley Lever on 07909 748986 for details.

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
