Star date: 13th September 2010 

Salford Local History and Family Fun Day
Sunday 19th September 2010
11am-4pm Free entry
Salford Museum and Art Gallery

Next Sunday a huge event is happening with loads of heritage and history societies converging on Salford Museum and Art Gallery for the ninth annual  Salford Local History and Family Fun Day.

Together with stalls run by local community groups and organisations, there's also lots of things for kids to do, including rides on vintage buses.

Full details here…


A proper Salford day is promised with Sunday's Salford Local History and Family Fun Day. As well as free vintage bus trips, workshops and crafts for kids, there will also be a chance to look deep into the city's history, heritage and current state.

The ReTracing Salford project is going to be there with old street signs, maps and photos; Friends of Kersal Moor hopefully will be showing photos of the Moor deer, and the latest news can be got from the Ordsall Hall revamp via its stall.

Other fab stalls will include Local History Societies from Swinton and Pendlebury, Eccles, Irlam and Cadishead, the North West Labour History Group and the Working Class Movement Library. There's also the Friends of Salford Cemeteries stall which sounds well worth a visit, while the Salford City Council regeneration and conservation team stall will be even more interesting we're sure.

There's book sellers, map sellers, food and drink, all accompanied by period music from Peter Bull. Sounds like a top day.

Salford currently has three councillors per ward but, with new wards possibly emerging as the city grows, this might be cut to two per ward.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
