RETRACING SALFORD

Old Salford street maps, signs from the city's disappeared streets and loads of old photos from local families lining the walls. The Retracing Salford project is back at The Cornerstone until April 14th and launches this Saturday 11am-4pm with the whole team there to answer questions, display their archives and scan old family snaps that anyone can bring to add to the growing collection.

Included in the display are black and white and early colour photos from the Ainsworth family, originally from Hanky Park and Nansen Street; fifties photos from the Rigby family who lived in Lindsay Street, off Regent Road and sixties photos from the Wroe family who lived in Alfred Street in Lower Broughton until it was demolished in the 70s. There's top pics of old cars in the background as well as those long gone but never forgotten streets.

"It's an interactive exhibition of images and objects collected from people who lived in some of the Salford's now demolished terrace streets" says Lawrence Cassidy of ReTracing Salford "Salford's demolitions have fragmented many family and social networks. However, the exhibition aims to bring people together again to reflect on diverse aspects of community life.

"The Retracing Salford project is influenced by The District Six Museum in South Africa" he adds "It uses related objects to recapture community memories, such as family snaps, oral histories, street maps and street signs."

Anyone can bring photos from old streets down to the launch on Saturday, or throughout its run at The Cornerstone until April, or e-mail them to the online museum which can be found at www.streetsmuseum.co.uk

ReTracing Salford launches on Saturday 29th January at The Cornerstone's FunKey Day, a full day of free family entertainment to celebrate the handing over of the building's keys to the community by the Salford PCT. As well as the ReTracing Salford launch which is happening upstairs, there's stalls, quizzes, kids crafts, live bands and a treasure hunt going on all day 11am-4pm

ReTracing Salford runs until April 14th at The Langworthy Cornerstone, 451 Liverpool St (corner of Langworthy Rd/Liverpool St), Salford M6 5QQ

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

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.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
