FUNKEY DAY AT LANGWORTHY CORNERSTONE

Today the community took over The Cornerstone in Langworthy as the keys for the building were formally handed over by Salford Primary Care Trust in a full day of family fun, live music and nasty Bush Tucker Trials that had the kids squirming.

It was definitely a fun family FunKey Day, as committee members from The Cornerstone were handed giant keys by Mike BurrowsChief Exec of Salford Primary Care Trust, to symbolise the new 20 year lease on the building gained for the community.

All day people packed out The Cornerstone where activities were happening all over the place. Upstairs family snaps were being scanned for the ReTracing Salford project, while kids decorated commemorative cardboard plates for Salford's disappeared demolished streets.

Meanwhile, in the Workshop, giant fruit was being created to go on the key ring for the giant key handing over ceremony, while in the Jungle Room terrified locals of all ages were recoiling in horror over the dreaded Bush Tucker Trial – a starter of disgusting green capers, a main course of mystery `sea creatures' and a dessert of `dead dogs eyeballs', which were actually rather yummy…

Downstairs, kids had their faces painted, got lucky on the Tombola and visited the health and community stalls. Live music from the Jane and Mike Band had children up on the dancefloor, while rappers Fresh Connections and Misfit Music showed Salford's urban class.

With Spanish being taught in an hour, head massage tasters and super quick ICT lessons there really was something for everybody, including the final Tai Chi session, totally chilling kids.

A great day – and now it's over to the community to run The Cornerstone for the next 20 years!

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.

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.
