ST LUKE’S CHURCH SALFORD ADDED TO HISTORIC ENGLAND AT RISK REGISTER
 

Star date: 8th November 2018

ST LUKE'S CHURCH WEASTE AT RISK

The imposing Grade II listed St Luke's Church on Liverpool Street in Weaste is one of only eight buildings in the country to have been added to Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register 2018.

The Church is famous for hosting the wedding of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in 1879 but is under threat from a leaking roof.

The Grade II listed St Luke's Church, set on a huge mound off Liverpool Street in Weaste, is the latest Salford building added to the new Historic England Heritage at Risk Register 2018, released today.

St Luke's is only one of eight new sites nationally added to the register, and joins twelve other Salford places of worship in a list of 16 'at risk' buildings in the city.

The Church, designed by George Gilbert Scott and built in 1865, is famous for hosting the wedding of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in 1879, but is under threat from a leaking roof.

St Luke's now hopes to benefit from a Government Taylor Review £1.8million pilot scheme, running in only Greater Manchester and Suffolk, launched to see listed places of worship repaired and improved with the aid of expert advisers...

"They will help local volunteers to look after and manage Places of Worship, including churches, synagogues and meeting houses, and will also explore how they can serve their wider communities" states Historic England.

I was an alter boy and also confirmed here. Very happy memories of my time then, bonfires on November 5th, Garden Parties at the Vicarage and a Youth Club they ran. It would be a shame to see anything happen to the beautiful church.

I went to St Lukes School in in the 50's and also St Lukes Church. It is a lovely building and it would be sad to see it go the way of so much of the old Salford. I live in Australia now but try to keep up with my old home as much as possible. I was also in the St Lukes Entertainment Society when it first started. We had a great time My maiden name was Ramsbottom.

Salford has already lost so many buildings of historical importance and we can not allow this beautiful building to be added to the list. let's hope that people will fight to save it and show some of that so called Salford 'salt of the earth' spirit!

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
