Coeliac disease is a serious autoimmune condition caused by a reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. And the only treatment available for people who suffer is to avoid all foods with these ingredients.

The number of people diagnosed as coeliacs is growing to one in 100, and, as such, the Government has stopped giving out gluten-free bread and flour on prescription, which has created a whole extra private market for such products.

Supermarkets now have whole aisles full of everything from ready meals to cakes, to cereals, and restaurants are starting to have gluten free options on the menu.

Coeliac UK, the largest independent charity for people living gluten free, will be holding its first ever gluten free food festival on Saturday 24th June at the AJ Bell Stadium, with free entry*

There will be over forty stalls and visitors will have the chance to sample and buy a whole range of gluten free food and drink from local and national producers, and see new products.

People will also be able to book a free face-to-face meeting with a registered dietitian, visit the Coeliac UK Hub, listen to specialist talks led by leading Gastroenterologist Professor David Sanders and watch a range of cookery demonstrations hosted by Coeliac UK's Home Economist. The day will also include a round up from Coeliac UK and their annual general meeting.

Special guest is TV presenter, Chris Bavin, who will be doing a cookery demonstration...

"My wife has coeliac disease" he says "And so I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting to people who are coming along on the day, and will no doubt  pick up ideas of new products and tips to take back home."

SHOCKING INDICTMENT OF UNFAIR WELFARE SYSTEM

'For the first time in his life he became a priority...'

Pat Mullen was homeless for over twenty years and, as a single man with drug and alcohol issues, was always bottom of the list for housing. Because of his chaotic circumstances, Pat became ill and recently had to have a leg amputated. Only then could he get somewhere to live, as, for the first time in his life, he became a priority...

"If he hadn't had a leg amputated he would still be on the streets" says his brother, John "...No-one is listening."

SALFORD ALDI STORE LATEST TO SPELL TH' HEIGHT WRONG

The Aldi store, which replaced the Co-op on Bolton Road, is the latest to get the spelling of Irlams o' th' Height wrong on its signs. Few people who don't actually live in the area get the name right, for some reason.

A local resident who couldn't get Aldi to put its sign right, wrote to the Salford Star and the store was contacted. A spokesperson responded: "We're currently correcting the sign." Why can no-one spell Irlams o' th' Height?
