The Salford Star is now eleven years old and continues to do exactly what we said we would do when we produced our first print magazine in summer 2006 to give the community a voice, to hold public bodies up to account and to let people know what is going on in the city.

As ever, it's been hard, it's been weird, it's been fun and it's been rather skint because no-one wants to pay for the truth about the rich, powerful and petty rulers. As ever, Salford City Council won't speak to the Star, and neither will a host of other public and quasi-public bodies that don't want their affairs to be questioned.

The Star used to call their brand of democracy 'China on the Irwell' but that's becoming a bit creepy as China, Singapore and Hong Kong are literally marching into the city shoving up 'investment opportunities' everywhere you look.

The Salford Star is a fiercely independent community-centred publication that has no vested interests and no financial backing from anywhere. So we thank all our voluntary contributors writers, photographers, graphics gurus and technical whizzes - without whom our website would be rather empty.

We also rely on people in the community letting us know what is going down, because our articles are essentially grass roots driven, backed up with hard core investigative journalism.

Finally, we thank everyone from the community who has donated to the Star. This is our only form of income (apart from a couple of hundred quid a year from those horrid Google ads). The only other way we get any pennies is through our merchandise, which is now almost sold out...

...So we're having a summer clearance sale, with everything at knock down prices to clear the decks. And then we will possibly produce some new items, with new designs, for sale to help keep us going.

So we have...

1 XXL Black t-shirt star design 4 (as modelled by Catherine Tyldesley) (sold)

1 Small White t-shirt star design  4

1 Small Black t-shirt star design 4 (sold)


1 Large White t-shirt old Star banner design (silver) 4

1 Small Light Blue t-shirt old Star banner design (metallic purple) 4

1 Small Dark Grey t-shirt old Star banner design (silver) 4 (sold)

We also have ten Salford Star baby grows in various sizes with Salford Star banner in silver, gold and purple metallic - 2 each

Ten Salford star mugs 4 each - sold out


All items are subject to post charges, which are whatever it costs us to post. If you live in Central Salford we'll deliver free.

It's all being done on first come, first serve so get in touch as soon as possible.

To everybody who plays a part in producing the articals, I thank you. Due to reading your magazine on a daily basis, my attitude has changed from having no interest in the local council, or indeed the Government and the decisions they make. To being watchful critical and actively making my feelings known in no uncertain terms. Thank you for giving me the confidence to speak out for what I believe in, send emails to MPs, Metro Mayor, City Mayor and councillors. I would urge everybody to email the Mayor, the councillors and the MPs and make them aware of your feelings. They are there to serve us the people, and not just do what they want to do. Happy Birthday Salford Star keep up the good work.

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.

ROLLERBLADING IS TEST OF MANCHESTER AND SALFORD SUCCESS SAYS COUNCIL STRATEGIC DIRECTOR

Star date: 21st May 2018

FORGET ABOUT JOBS, HOMELESSNESS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING ROLLERBLADERS IS WHERE CITIES' REGENERATION IS AIMED!

'Jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more"...'

Never mind jobs, homelessness and affordable housing, all Manchester and Salford regeneration is, apparently, aimed at attracting rollerbladers, Eddie Smith, Strategic Director at Manchester City Council, told a Built Environment Network conference last week; and that the jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more". At the same conference, the Development Manager for Salford City Council echoed the similar sentiments.
