Following last month's launch of the No Turn Unstoned live night at The Racecourse pub on Littleton Road, it's back this Saturday by popular demand…

Last month the launch of No Turn Unstoned saw a small back room of The Racecourse pub buzzing with live acts, as comedienne, Sufiya Rehman, tried out new material, compere Mike Skeffington read out grotesque rhyming stories, and Bernie's posse of musicians rocked along. Meanwhile, poets and bar room comedians also got up and did a bit as the floor went open and the words got tasty…

This month's mayhem promises more of the same and then some…Not repeat not - for the easily offended!

No Turn Unstoned presents `Throw 'em a Kipper' at The Racecourse Hotel, Littleton Road, Lower Kersal Saturday 12th December – any time from around 8pm free entry…

Thanks to everyone who attended last months little gettogether, especially those who contributed and thanks to Steve for supporting us with some publicity. What we need though is people to get involved and just enjoy it. Our aim is to show that people in Salford are talented and imaginative and you don't have to travel to Manchester to get alternative entertainment. Thanks to everyone and we'll see you on saturday.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
