At the Salford Arts Theatre everyone's running around making last minute changes to the props and costumes as the curtain prepares to open for the first matinee of Jack and the Beanstalk.

The dame's shaving, the freshly painted beans have arrived and the band is warming up…

"Last year we did Christmas Cat and the Pudding Pirates which was a fabulous story but this year we wanted to go down the traditional route with Jack and the Beanstalk" says Salford Art Theatre's Roni Ellis.

"We've got live music, a giant beanstalk and the dame is absolutely brilliant, a natural" she adds "The other great thing about it is that this a local and really affordable show, and Salford pubs and places get mentions. It's just really funny and I think everyone will love it."

Family tickets for two adults and three kids are just £22, making it the most affordable panto in Salford, and while most matinees have already sold out there are tickets left for the evening performances. Ring the box office for further details…925 0111 or 07770 776924

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

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.
