THE OTHER SIDE OF SALFORD
 

Star date: 5th May 2010

ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF SALFORD 

Today, we drove around Salford taking photographs of the other side of Salford – one that's a million miles away from the image being portrayed by MediaCityUK and The Lowry and the University of Salford. Yet all this is on the doorstep of these projects.

Welcome to the wreckage of Salford's regeneration – pictures speaking louder than a million empty words of politicians…

no-one has been to my door from any of the partys. if the candidates are not willing to meet the people how can the candidates ask for our support, by voting for them. Hazel Blears MP did come down to the estate of duchy{salford} some weeks ago to meet the residents outside the corner shop, but I, like others do not wish to converse on a street corner but its O.k at my frout door. I will be voting for the party not the person.

Good article. More of this sort of stuff please. What about a few voices from the streets of Salford to go with the pictures?

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.

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

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.
