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!

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
