SALFORD'S CARERS AT DE LA SALLE

Salford's carers got some well earned respite last week as De La Salle's students treated them to a free day of pampering.

"We loved it and everyone treated us very well, we all came away feeling really uplifted and fresh" says Joan Dickinson, chairperson of the Claremont, Weaste and Seedley Carers Drop In Group.

"The lovely students worked on us overseen by the trained staff, and everyone treated us with respect and kindness" she adds "De La Salle College hold pampering days and usually it is £35 for the day but we got it free. We had a pedicure, manicure, a lovely three course meal in the restaurant and our hair treated in the hair salon."

The day was organised by Hazel Blears, after the group's secretary, Irene Travis, had gone to see the Salford MP about help or funding for the carers group.

The Claremont, Weaste and Seedley Carers Group hold a drop in on Wednesdays between 12 and 3pm at Chandos Social Club, Chandos Grove, Weaste M5 5LJ.

I would also thank all concerned who gave us such a lovely experience at De la Salle College last Thursday. Everyone, students and staff, we very kind ad cheerful - they did their utmost to ensure we all had a great day. As one of the three unpaid volunteers who run the Carers' Drop-in each Wednesday from 12noon to 3pm at the Chandos Sports Club we do our best to ensure that carers and ex-carers are given a period of time for just themselves to get away and enjoy the company of others. These are early days for our group but we are trying our very utmost to get funding so we may provide more days out etc. for these, sometimes quite lonely, carers who so deserve our help and gratitude for all they cope with every day.

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
