Local News

Owners and their furry friends are encouraged to visit Clifton Country Park on Sunday 22 July for a day of doggy delights.

Running from 11am to 4pm the Dogs in Salford Festival will feature a dog show, agility course and temptation alley.

Dogs will be able to get free health checks, chipping and nail clipping thanks to the PDSA. And while their canine companions are being pampered, owners can get a free health check thanks to the Salford Health Improvement team.

Councillor David Lancaster, Lead Member for Environment and Community Safety at Salford City Council, said:

“This festival is all about bringing the community together and celebrating our four-legged friends. But you don’t have to have a dog to attend – simply come along and enjoy the day.

“All money raised will go towards Rochdale Dog Rescue who look after so many of the strays our dog wardens find. They provide loving care and help them find a new home.”

 

For children, there is face painting, bouncy castles, fruit animals and guess the breed.

The dog show consists of the following categories costing £1 to enter each category. The categories are:

•Prettiest Girl sponsored by Rob Hiatt

•Best Rescue sponsored by The Original Hi K9

      Young people in Salford are looking to the future as the city celebrates National Youth Work week (November 2 to November 8.)
      Salford City Council’s youth service, which works with more than 400 young people each week, will be running projects on the skills employers are looking for such as communication and team-work and staying positive and being hopeful as part of the week’s celebrations.
      The team has had to move much of its work online because of the pandemic but has continued to work with more than 400 young people every week.
      The work ranges from fun activities to help young people develop self-confidence and learn new skills, through art, music, sport and projects such as learning to refurbish bikes to supporting them with school attendance and behaviour difficulties or involvement in anti-social behaviour or crime.
      Youth workers also support young mums and dads and young people who are LGBTQ and have helped young people give back to their communities during the pandemic by assisting food banks, delivering food parcels and promoting acts of kindness. They also support the Youth MP, Youth Mayor and Youth Council which campaign for action on issues which matter to young people.

      Poppies are being painted on the road in Salford to mark Remembrance Sunday.
      The move comes after residents were asked to ‘make a sacrifice’ and commemorate Remembrance Sunday at home this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
      This year the council will show a service of remembrance and a wreath laying ceremony over the internet from 11am on Remembrance Sunday, 8 November.
      And two poppies have been painted on Chorley Road opposite the cenotaph where people would usually attend to mark the significant day.
      The poppies were installed free of charge by KAYS Traffic Management Systems Limited after Highways officers approached them about doing something special to mark Remembrance Sunday.  
      Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said:
      The council has two Armed Forces Champions, Councillor Margaret Morris and Councillor Barry Warner. They are asking people to consider donating to the Royal British Legion if they can to support the Poppy Appeal 2020 https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/.

      Shaun Hargreaves, commercial director at KAYS said:
      Salford City Council is also displaying memorial banners and a giant poppy on the Civic Centre and has posted ideas on its website under the banner Remember at Home for ways to pay tribute during the day. 
      The Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Charlie McIntyre, said this year’s remembrance would be different but no less dignified or heartfelt.
      KAYS, is a family-run road maintenance business based in Blackburn, working hard to support the North-West’s attempt to keep people safe and the country moving forward. Headed up by commercial director Shaun Hargreaves, KAYS has not only completed typical traffic management tasks with ardour, but the business was also one of the driving members behind the well-recognised series of ‘road rainbows’ and messages of thanks to the NHS - as loved and admired across North-West localities.
