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.

HARROP FOLD CLOSES FOR THE DAY DUE TO PROTEST

As pupils and parents prepared to protest the suspension of Harrop Fold head teacher, Drew Povey, and three other staff, the school closed today citing the "distressing effect on our students".

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

Star date: 18th July 2018

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

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.
