SALFORD HISTORY AND FUN DAY
 

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.

AS HOMELESS SALFORD MAN DIES UNCLE ASKS WHY IT’S NOT BEING REPORTED

Star date: 23rd January 2018

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.

Now his uncle wants to know why his nephew's death was not reported and says "This is probably going on in every big city in the country, and for me it is just being covered up..."

The planning panel of councillors for Salford City Council will be probably rubber stamping yet another huge development in Ordsall this week – two blocks of 'luxury' apartments, up to nine storeys high, off Ordsall Lane and Dyer Street.

From 196 properties being proposed by Selectric Investments Ltd, just one will be affordable, thanks to official Salford Council policy.
