SECURITY FOR RESIDENTS OF M3

Three residents associations in the M3 areas of Greengate, Blackfriars, Trinity and Islington have been awarded £50,000 from the Government to improve security in houses and flats.

Anyone can just ring up and get free locks, chains and spy holes, plus alarm servicing and special DNA marking kits for property.

"We have one of the highest levels of burglaries in the whole of Salford and we're trying to reduce it with this grant" says Richard Critchley of Bridgewater Residents Association.

Full story here…


Three Salford residents associations - Vertical Villages, Bridgewater Residents Association and TIETARA – have got £50,000 to spend by the end of March on improving security in homes throughout the M3 postcode area.

Any residents who haven't got top standard door chains and locks, spy holes or window locks can now have them fitted free of charge, while the grant also covers free alarm checks and servicing.

"Residents can just ring up and free engineers will come out and improve alarms, locks, window locks and door chains" says Richard Critchley of Bridgewater Residents Association "The idea is just to make the community feel safer and more empowered in the area, and to reduce the level of burglaries.

"It's the highest quality alarms and some of the toughest locks you can get" he adds "So it really is worth it and it's completely free…"

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.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
