Start in Salford Creative Arts and Wellbeing Centre has been shortlisted in the final of The People's Millions which is to be broadcast on the 22nd November on Granada Tonight.

To get a £50,000 prize from a link between the National Lottery and Granada TV, Start needs everyone in Salford to vote for it during a Granada Tonight broadcast on 22nd November that goes out between 6pm and 6:30pm.

During the show a phone number will be given out, and all anyone has to do to support the great work that Start does is to pick up the phone and vote for it or vote via the People's Millions website Ė see here. You can also actually vote at any time from 9am- midnight on the 22nd via the website too.

"Start in Salford's project involves transforming a disused space in the centre of Buile Hill Park into a thriving community growing space" says a Start spokesperson "Our work would enhance the park, increase its use, and enable members to work alongside the community to grow their own fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers."

Sound a top idea? Get voting on the 22nd November when Start is in competition with Liverpool's Oakmere Community College `Voyage of Discovery'.

All Start In Salford has to do is get more votes than Oakmere on the night and its project, Start in The Park, gets funded!

BUILE HILL MANSION SUPPORT GROUP MEETING HEARS OF 'CHINESE' PLANS FOR SALFORD

Over the last few months, rumours of a Chinese buyout of the AJ Bell Stadium and its land, hand outs for the Buile Hill Mansion and a possible plan for a Salford Red Devils takeover have been louder than bombs.

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
