RETRACING SALFORD  

At the entrance to the latest ReTracing Salford exhibition there was a huge tapestry called The Key To Broughton and Ordsall. Finished only a month ago the tapestry is the visual result of workshops held at Ordsall Community Café, Broughton Trust and the Working Class Movement Library, and aims to show the new Salford and the old Salford, while the accompanying text boards give an insight into what's good and bad…

The Good Side of the New… "It's so clean, it's like the whole area has been put through a washing machine, not like the grime and pollution before…Media City is exciting and putting Salford on the map but it splits opinions"

The Bad Side of the New… "It feels like you're constantly caged in, and everything has to be under lock and key…Some feel there is a big invasion of Ordsall, lots of new things that aren't for them…"

The tapestry was commissioned by ReTracing Salford through workshops run by Pif-Paf. But that was just one small part of the exhibition which showed hundreds of family photographs of displaced families from the 1500 lost streets of Salford, with many of the street signs also on show.

New to the collection were street signs from Newbury Place, Sussex Street and Reading Street, all bulldozed in the last six months.  With demolitions continuing by the week – Langworthy Road School and Booths Gardens next in line – this is a project that, unfortunately, keeps on growing…

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

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."

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.
