CORNERSTONE'S FUNKEY DAY SCARES CELEBS
FunKey Day
Saturday 29th January 11am-4pm free
Langworthy Cornerstone

"I'm a celebrity, but you won't get me in there to eat that" Coronation Street's Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone.

A nasty Bush Tucker Trial in a specially designed `jungle room' at The Cornerstone is scaring off celebs from a taste of The Cornerstone's FunKey Day this Saturday.

The Trial - which includes scary starters, a main course and a pudding - is part of a full day of family events to celebrate the community taking over The Cornerstone in Langworthy from the PCT.

The day includes live music from rappers Misfit Music and Fresh Connections, plus stalls, kids' arts and crafts, a treasure hunt, cookery demos and that Bush Tucker Trial – try it if you dare!

"I know which side my bread's buttered on - and it isn't the Cornerstone's Bush Tucker Trial. Good luck to anyone who dares take the challenge!" Nigel Pivaro.

The `I'm A Celeb' jungle comes to Langworthy this weekend with a Bush Tucker Trial that's guaranteed to test the taste buds, eyes and stomachs of anyone brave enough to try it. So far, both Alan Halsall and Nigel Pivaro have declined the offer to sample the menu, while wannabe king of the jungle, Shaun Ryder, has an open invite – but he seems to be lying low!

The Trial, which happens between 1pm and 2pm, is just part of a full day of entertainment as The Cornerstone throws open its doors to celebrate it getting a 20 year lease on its building for the community from Salford PCT. The keys will be officially handed over by Mike Burrows, chief exec of the PCT, at 2pm, and kids will have the chance to make creative keys and key rings in arts and crafts workshops beforehand.

After the key ceremony there's live music by top Salford rappers Misfit Music and Fresh Connections, plus Salford inspired folk by the Jane and Mike Band.

The day has a health theme and there's face painting, stalls, quizzes, a treasure hunt, cookery demos, a curling competition, dance exhibitions and alternative therapy tasters. The ReTracing Salford team will also be launching its latest exhibition upstairs (see here) and there'll also be work on display from the SCMP digital photography classes.

"FunKey Day is a celebration of a long struggle by the community to finally get the lease for the Langworthy Cornerstone" says John Phillips, manager of The Cornerstone "As well as getting the keys to the building it's all about the community getting together to try something new and do something different.

"FunKey Day also has a health theme and the Bush Tucker Trial will test the taste buds with new and exciting foods people may not have tried, with disgusting bits thrown in the mix" he adds "So try it if you dare!"

FunKey Day
Saturday 29th January 11am – 4pm free.
Langworthy Cornerstone, 451 Liverpool Street, Salford M5 5QQ (corner Langworthy Rd/Liverpool St) 0161 212 4400

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST £10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

NATIONAL GRID WILL NOT RE-THINK DEMOLITION OF SALFORD DIRTY OLD TOWN GASWORKS

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

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.
