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 CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
