This Thursday evening, Salford and Manchester TUCs have called a vigil near McDonald's, off the Crescent, for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on its first anniversary. Speakers will include Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey.

Exactly a year after the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, the TUCs of Salford and Manchester have called a joint vigil on land near McDonald's on the junction of Cross Lane and the Crescent.

"This vigil has been called to commemorate the one year anniversary of the fire that tragically killed over eighty people and destroyed the homes and memories of the residents of the Grenfell Tower block in West London" states the Salford TUC "Salford Trade Union Council will be gathering to pay our respects to the victims and their families in a show of solidarity."

Speakers will include Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey and the Bishop of Manchester, David Walker.

The site of the vigil is also opposite Spruce Court and Thorn Court, and near the seven other Pendleton Together blocks owned by Salford City Council that still have the dangerous cladding on most of the exteriors. Indeed, residents of the blocks believe it will be around two years before all of the cladding is removed and replaced.

The vigil is a timely reminder to the authorities to move more quickly in removing the materials which were similar to those in place on the Grenfell Tower.

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.
