By motorbike and by van…from the beginning of Victoria Road in Cadishead and onwards via Peel Street, Monton Road, Barton Road, Liverpool Road, Cutnook Lane and finishing at Tiger Moth Square, there's going to be over four hours of toy and donation collecting for the families affected by the Irlam gas explosion on Sunday December 12th.

Get out and buy some toys for the families affected by the Irlam gas explosion who are going to be struggling this Christmas. On December 12th, a convoy of local bikers will be riding around Irlam, Winton, Patricroft and Barton to collect your toys and donations.

"There is a strong sense of belonging in Irlam and  a desire to help each other out" says Blayz, one of the bikers who is taking part in the event "The idea came from the people of Irlam who knew that a Toy Collection was a popular idea in most quarters, and we were asked if we would take part in a community event."

The toys need to be new ones, suitable for ages 2-15, and there are designated collection points around the route, including Wangies Pub on Liverpool Road at Patricroft and the Rock House Hotel on Peel Green Road at Barton, as well as at the starting point for the Ride and at the finishing point, the Tiger Moth pub. There will also be a minibus following the bikes that will collect toys and donations en route.

It's a fantastic idea and a great way to support the Irlam families. The four and a half hour bike ride finishes at 5:30pm with a performance by female due Fantasy at the Tiger Moth pub and a Charity Night.

The Irlam Family Toy Run and Charity Night is being organised in association with the Tiger Moth Designated Donation Point for Salford City Council and City West Housing.

Any left over toys will be donated to Manchester Children's Hospital.

Fantastic idea, hope the snow has gone by then, but as someone who own daughter and grand daughter were effected by the blast on Neville drive I'll be there.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
