SALFORD UNEMPLOYED AND COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTRE
 

Star date: 6th March 2011 

30th Anniversary of Salford Unemployed Centre

Anniversary Fundraising Event
Britannia Hotel
Friday 11th March 7:30pm £20

Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre is thirty years old, and to celebrate, it's holding a major fundraising event, with a three course meal, wine, entertainment and speakers including former Eccles MP Ian Stewart at £20 per ticket.

Full details here…


Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre in Eccles was born out of the huge Thatcher led recession in the early 80s which closed many of the town's factories and led to mass unemployment.

Originally run by unemployed people themselves, it has grown to include the whole of Salford and offers legal and benefits advice, skills training and debt management. Its aims are "campaigning, supporting, advising and representing unemployed and employed people".

To celebrate thirty years of the ace Centre, there's going to be a fundraising event this Friday, 11th March at the Britannia Hotel in Manchester. Speakers include former Eccles MP Ian Stewart, Davey Hopper, General Secretary of the North East National Union of Mine Workers, and Avis Gilmore, Regional Secretary of National Union of Teachers. A letter of support will also be read out from Tony Benn.

Entertainment on the night will also include comedian Mike Elliot and a disco. Tickets for all this are just £20 which include a three course dinner and wine. And for another £50 you can get a double room at the Britannia Hotel with BandB.

Would it not have been better for the Salford economy to have held the event at a Salford hotel?

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

CAN 'CLEAN' COMEDY WORK IN SALFORD? ABSOLUTELY!

This week saw a trial 'clean comedy' night at The Vine Cafe in Irlams O' Th' Height, with five comics wowing the sold out venue, and not a swear word or lewd reference in earshot...

"It had to be right kind of acts" explained organiser Sally Griffiths, as the mix of new performers and professionals pulled off the clean comedy night with aplomb (ooh, er, missus...).
