Star date: 28th April 2011

RACECOURSE FUN FOR MACMILLAN

MacMillan Fundraiser Day
Sunday May 1st 1pm-late, entry by voluntary donation
Racecourse Hotel, Littleton Rd, Salford 

A fab full-on fun day is taking place this Sunday at the Racecourse Hotel in Lower Kersal to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support with loads of kids entertainment in the day time, including a Punch and Judy show. After 7pm the sounds kick in with a Northern Soul and Motown Music Spectacular. And all day there's a raffle where you could win a rare Salford Star t-shirt, amongst other top prizes.

Full story here…


Face painting, Punch and Judy, hot dogs and hopefully hot weather will make a great day for kids and adults in the fabulous ambience of the Racecourse Hotel and its gardens on Littleton Road.

From 1pm-4pm the kids take centre stage; between 6pm and 7pm No Turn Unstoned take the stage for some live sounds with Barnyard, Chirper and the gang; while, from 7pm there's a Northern Soul and Motown Music Spectacular disco with a hot pot supper.

It's all part of a MacMillan Fundraiser Day and, throughout, raffle tickets will be on sale to win some great prizes donated by local businesses, including a rare Salford Star t-shirt. 

"Last year we raised funds for St Ann's Hospice, and this year we're doing it for MacMillan support because MacMillan workers live day to day with cancer sufferers with people who are going to die" says organiser Mike Skeffington "Whereas we might experience it, unfortunately, once or twice in our lifetime these people are dealing with it on a day to day basis throughout their working lives. They show a great deal of dedication so it's whatever we can do to help them along really."

Entry is by voluntary donation to MacMillan and there's that fundraising raffle. Did we mention that you could win a rare Salford Star t-shirt as one of loads of great prizes?

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".
