HANKY PARK SALFORD LIVES AGAIN
 

Star date: 9th May 2011

Hanky Park, Then And Now: A Lesson In Regeneration?
A talk by Tom Murphy
Wed 11th May 2pm free
Working Class Movement Library

Hanky Park was Salford all over. Then it was condemned to make way for the brave new world of Salford Precinct and the tower blocks.  A `lesson in regeneration' or a disaster?

This first talk in the new Invisible Histories series at the Working Class Movement Library will aim to provide some answers.

Full story here…

Before Hanky Park was a rock band, the area that it was named after was everything that stereotyped Salford in the mind of the southern beholder. It was Lowry plus Love On The Dole plus Dirty Old Town

…And then it was deleted…swept away by the futuristic regeneration that became Salford Precinct and the tower blocks. A `lesson in regeneration' or a disaster?

Hopefully this first talk by Tom Murphy in the new Invisible Histories series at the Working Class Movement Library will dissect what went wrong and draw some parallels with today's mess created by the `municipal authority' ie Salford Council.

If you've got a few hours to spare on Wednesday afternoon it will be well worth a listen.

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.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?

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...).
