On 10th September everyone is invited to attend the Inaugural World Suicide Prevention Day Vigil of Remembrance on the plaza outside The Lowry to recall the 1,279 people in Greater Manchester who have taken their own lives over the last five years.

"The Vigil of Remembrance will remember those that we have lost and demonstrate to those that have lost loved ones to suicide that the community is here for them with this mass demonstration of support" state the organisers, Start Inspiring Minds.

"It will contribute towards smashing the stigma that is associated with suicide in all its forms, and contributing to a community that enables people to discuss suicide and enable people to disclose when they are experiencing suicidal thoughts and ideas" they add.

The Vigil will feature an acoustic set by Blaney, and spoken word performances by JB Barrington and Marvin Cheeseman. Also present will be GM Mayor Andy Burnham, Professor Louis Appleby, Chair of the National Suicide Prevention Strategy Advisory Group (tbc), and Vikie Shanks, whose husband, Paul, took his own life in 2007, leaving behind seven kids - six of whom are autistic. The family is the subject of a Netflix documentary, Kingdom of Us, that follows their struggle in the wake of Paul's death.

There will also be a remembrance roll that will be read out at the Vigil and if anyone wants the name of a loved one to be included just email dennis.baldwin@startinspiringminds.org.uk

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.
