Monday 22nd November 6-6:30pm Granada TV

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.

Start has a chance to win £50,000 towards its project to transform a disused space in the centre of Buile Hill Park into a thriving community growing space.

Click here for details of how you can help…


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 websitesee 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!

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
