CHARLESTOWN AND LOWER KERSAL NDC CLOSING DOWN SALE!
They haven’t exactly tried to publicise it… They opened it on December 20th and it closes on January 5th… But we found it and can now reveal details of the fabulous, once in a lifetime, closing down sale at Charlestown and Lower Kersal NDC, where everything is being given away for free…
The £53million government led, Salford council collaborated New Deal for Communities project has been running in East Salford for almost ten years and has done next to nothing (see here). The NDC shuts down in March and is now disposing of all its assets – not for next to nothing, but for nothing!
Yes, loads of houses have gone…loads of people have gone…and loads of money has gone down the drain (see here). Now everything in the NDC office must go – with equipment galore being given away!
There are: 81 chairs! 44 desks! 13 cupboards! 7 heaters!
16 fans (that’s about right!)
38 computer monitors!
1 projector and screen!
1 Nikon digital camera!
1 hostess trolley!
4 coat and umbrella stands!
1 guillotine (form a queue!)
Plus loads more stuff like filing cabinets, flip charts, stationery, bookcases…everything an NDC could have wanted. And now it’s all being given back to the community for free!
Any community group can apply for the free equipment, particularly those in the NDC area of Charlestown and Lower Kersal. So get in quick – the offer ends on January 5th.
It was nice of the NDC to publicise the great giveaway (as far as we can see, only on its website) and to run the free auction over Christmas, when no-one’s looking. But we’ve brought it to you and revealed the greatest giveaway in East Salford since, well, the NDC staff’s last 10% pay rise (see here)…
Any community group is eligible as long as the benefit is for Salford people.
