Ordsall Community Arts has been doing some brilliant stuff in Ordsall for the past 25 years and this latest event is aimed at `lifting the lid' on some of the work it's been doing and the organisations it's been working with to reveal both Ordsall and Salford's creative talent.

On display are works by the `New Lowry', Joe Coffey, and top Lower Broughton artist Jo Carlon, plus art from Ordsall creators Leslie Holmes and Amber Sanchez. Community groups, like Women In Stitches, are also exhibiting and Gears+ is showcasing a special real BMW customised by local kids…

"Ordsall alone is buzzing with creative activity, and we wanted to showcase the fantastic work that local people are doing" says Iain Earle of Ordsall Community Arts and exhibition organiser "Part of the inspiration for the event was to feature an old BMW which was converted at Gears + by a group of young people from Ordsall.

"They are so proud of it!" he adds "They gutted it inside and out, re-moulded it and lined it with benches, and painted it. Its final destination will be in the new community garden at Ordsall Park this summer. This is your last chance to see it from underneath before it gets buried and used as a big plant pot…"

On Saturday 20th May there will be workshops and activities for children and families, free lunch at 1pm, drumming workshops and live music from two acoustic Salford bands, the Ratcatchers and the Beautiful Distractions.

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.

TOOTHBRUSHES AND SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

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".

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

Star date: 16th January 2019

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
