Broughton Family Fun Day, Albert Park, Saturday 4th September 12-4pm

Young people from across East Salford have been doing films, photos and words to try and make sense of their place in a city that's changing before their eyes - from the demolition zone of Whit Lane to the new white houses of New Broughton.

Perceptions of Salford's prime regeneration areas are being exhibited in the foyer of the University's Maxwell Hall today (Friday) and tomorrow at the Broughton Family Fun Day in Albert Park.

Young people from Albert's in Broughton and Oliver's Youth Club in Whit Lane have come together to portray how it feels to be young and in Salford.

"We've been taking photos and basically telling what the community is all about" says Aran O'Mahoney from Albert's, who adds "We thought it was all right."

Meanwhile, Kerry Steadman from Oliver's Youth Club made a DVD, playing first what people might see as a stereotyped Salford kid, and then playing herself articulating her aspirations.

"We did the `good teenager/bad teenager' and it was just about the different ways that people can think of us" she says "First I did the part of a bad teenager and then I showed what I really wanted to do – go to college, go to University and have a good life and a good job. It was about trying to change people's perceptions. It was fun."

The film that Kerry made is being shown today at the University's Maxwell Hall and tomorrow at an outdoor cinema set up in the evening at Albert Park as part of the Broughton Family Fun Day. There's also exhibitions of photographs and portraits taken by the young people (on display in the green hut at Albert Park) plus a `word wall' showing words that are used in Salford but maybe not known outside…

"The project has worked amazingly well" says youth worker, Sarah Nelson "Kids from both Oliver's and Albert's have come together and have all come up with the same perceptions – that they are happy where they live, whether it be Whit Lane or Broughton. They were quite happy to get their views across that they're not bad kids and are quite keen to do right by their community."

The exhibition, called strangely, The Chemical and the Capricious, is part of nationwide multi-media arts project run by Kandu Arts and links in with similar projects in London, Wiltshire, Cornwall and Grimsby.

"It's quite a posh title and nobody really knows what it means but it's looking at perceptions of the world and how young people see themselves, and how people see them and the environment in which they live" says Donna Lee from Kandu Arts.

"There's also a sense of place, looking at the contrast between the old Salford and the regenerated Salford and what the young people see as a nice place to live" she adds "We've also contrasted old and new, and taken photos at both the Victorian street at Salford Museum and Poundland in the Precinct."

The exhibition contains loads of powerful images of Salford and shows the talent of our young people to tell their own stories and show their experiences in words, film and with great photography…

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

BOLTON NHS HOSPITAL WORKERS CELEBRATE HUGE PAY VICTORY

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

TONNES OF SALFORD RECYCLING PAPER REJECTED AS PEOPLE PUT WRONG STUFF IN BLUE BINS

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
