  2. Yet again another story of everyday Salford folk when combined with alcohol, police assault always ends up in tears if not the Salford Magistrates Court as his story from June 1919 shows. John Lyons who resided at Hudson Street, Broughton appeared at Salford Magistrates Court dressed in full Army khaki uniform charged with being drunk and disorderly and assaulting P.C. Bradshaw. Alongside him was his father, Joseph Bradshaw of the same address but no khaki uniform, charged with assaulting P.C. P.C. Fairbrother. P.C. Bradshaw told the court that he was passing the Royal archer public house when he heard a commotion and saw a group of men arguing, in the middle was John Lyons, shouting and gesticulating. The brave bobby, "requested" that John go home, only to met with a punch to his face and was then gripped around the neck as John attempted to strangle him! Happily, PC's Brady and Walker happened to be passing, always a bobby there when you want one isn't there? P.C. Walker told the Court that he went to P.C. Bradshaw's assistance and it was with some difficulty they managed to get the "slips" on him, as he was, "fighting like a madman" P.C Brady backed him up by saying that he saw John attempting to strangle P.C. Bradshaw, when he noticed Joseph Lyons grab P.C. Fairbrother by the throat causing him an injury that required medical assistance. A brawl then ensued with several people joining in, and it was with some difficulty that the two men were taken into custody. Mr Desquesnes appeared as Defence for John Lyons whilst Joseph chose to defend himself. Rather smoothly Desquesnes told the Bench that that he had no reason to doubt the accuracy of anything said by the police and had to admit that his client had committed an offence...however. He then asked the Bench to be lenient with him and to take into account that he had been in police custody since Saturday evening, and with a final roll of the dice told the Court that John had promised to be "well behaved" for the rest of the time of his leave. Joseph Lyons denied assaulting P.C. Fairbrother and stated that he was the one who had been assaulted and on the evening in question there was great confusion outside the pub and all he could remember was a P.C. telling him to clear off. Superintendent Clarke then chipped in that both men had several convictions for being drunk and disorderly. Surprisingly John Lyons was sentenced to prison for seven days with hard labour. Joseph Lyons was then given 14 days in prison with hard labour. Perhaps Joseph should have pleaded guilty and would have received a lesser sentence? As Gilbert and Sullivan wrote in the Pirates of Penzance, A Policeman's Lot Is Not A Happy One, especially in Salford at closing time. Photo: Royal Archer.

  4. Head teachers across Salford are urging parents to back a new campaign for fairer funding for schools. They have written to all parents condemning the government’s current funding for schools and showing their support for the head teachers’ national Worth Less? campaign. City Mayor Paul Dennett and Deputy City Mayor Councillor John Merry, who oversees the children and young people portfolio, are giving their backing to the move. In the strongly worded letter the Salford heads lay blame with vicious government cuts which have seen school budgets for under 16s cut by eight per cent since 2010 whilst class sizes are quickly rising at the same time which is increasingly making it harder to maintain the range of sports and experiences currently offered. They also say that the cuts making it harder for schools who are struggling to maintain support for children’s emotional well-being and to support the most vulnerable children and young people in schools. Mayor Dennett said, Councillor Merry added, Head teacher Daniel Gauld of River View primary school, Salford, said, The letter which was sent out on the 21st of June, reads, Dear parent/carer Update – School Funding Issues I wanted to contact you to about school funding. Many Headteachers in Salford are sending out the same letter. Across the county over 7000 schools have also sent a similar letter. Sadly, I have to confirm that despite intense lobbying of the Government and Department for Education, school budgets remain extremely challenging. In short, schools are still not getting the right funding to deliver the level of education and support that is expected and that our families and children deserve. Current concerns Since 2010 school budgets have been reduced in real terms by 8%. Class sizes are rising and it is getting harder to maintain the range of experiences and sports currently offered Schools support children’s emotional well-being, this support is being eroded due to poor levels of funding. Schools are struggling to maintain the level of support currently offered Often, the most vulnerable students in our schools are bearing the brunt of cuts and schools are struggling to provide the levels of support that they are entitled to. These issues are not simply affecting a few schools. They are common in schools up and down the country. Headteachers are so concerned that we are all working together on this issue. In September 2018, over 2000 Headteachers campaigned at Westminster in order to underline the seriousness of the current situation. The ‘Worth Less?’ campaign group now has 64 Local Authorities and Boroughs, covering thousands of schools and millions of families. This gives a clear indication of the levels of concern felt by reasonable Headteachers in England. We know that there is not a ‘bottomless pit’ of money and also know that many local MPs are taking a supportive approach. We must make clear, however, that the current response from the Department for Education is inadequate. Headteacher colleagues and I, feel fortunate that we have been so strongly supported by parents and carers as we campaign for a better level of funding for our schools and pupils. We urge you to send messages to your local MP and to the Department for Education and wider Government to ensure that matters improve. We will continue to inform you of the facts and to campaign vigorously over coming weeks and months. In the meantime, be assured [our school's] ‘can-do’ spirit will continue and we remain committed to offering the best education we can to our young people. However, some have also highlighted that the considerable housing boom and population increase over the past few years has added to the problem and had a huge effect on the availability of school places in some areas. With more homes come more children and those children will put even more pressures on an education system that is already being hit hard. With plans to build hundreds of thousands of new homes across the whole of Greater Manchester in the coming years some argue that it is only a matter of time before the bubble burst and the whole system collapses. It is estimated the bill across the country would come to at least £2.8 billion in order to just maintain funding in the face of inflation, increasing costs and the rise in pupil numbers. Those hardest hit have been schools that deal with the most vulnerable students, many of which have special educational needs and disabilities. Support for them has been chipped away over a long period with funding becoming increasingly hard to access. Photo: Buile Hill Visual Arts College, Salford.
  5. Salford Red Devils boss Watson is to be joined by the London Broncos' head coach Danny Ward as an assistant to Rugby League Lions head coach Wayne Bennett. 'Watto' was named assistant coach ahead of the return of the Great British Rugby League Lions later this Autumn, this comes as under his tutelage the Devils are currently on a roll in fifth place in the Betfred Super League.

  6. Salford Council want your views on the Chapel Street East Phase 1 plans to make it easier and safer for people travelling on foot or by bike. A three-week consultation will start from 21 June to 12 July 2019, and you are invited to give your views on the link at the bottom of this page. Salford Council is working with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) on the project to ensure that all residents, businesses and stakeholders are kept up to date with information on the scheme. The section of Chapel Street between New Bailey Street and Blackfriars is a key link into the city centre, however this route is currently dominated by motor vehicles. The proposed plans apparently aim to make it easier and safer for people travelling on foot or by bike by providing protected facilities for cyclists (Bike Lanes) and improved crossing provision for pedestrians along this route. Salford Council says it has developed a strategic plan for the are which promotes much less reliance on cars and instead encourages more sustainable travel. The emphasis will be put on encouraging people to traverse the area using alternatives such as bicycles, walking and improved public transport. The area between Blackfriars and New Bailey Street is currently dominated by motor vehicles, however the new proposed plans will give greater priority to both cyclists and pedestrians on the route. Improvements to crossings as well as protected facilities for cyclists will go hand in hand with newly planted tree's and improved foot-ways. Greater Manchester's Cycling and Walking Commissioner, Chris Boardman says, However, not everyone is impressed, with some on social media saying that it is just going to create yet another bottleneck on a major artery in and out of Manchester for motorists who are increasingly being pushed out of the City centre.

How to comment You can provide your comments either by: By email to salfordroadworks@urbanvision.org.uk (please use ‘Chapel Street consultation’ in the subject box) By post to Salford City Council, Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, Salford M27 5AW (FAO Chapel Street consultation) By calling 0161 779 6060 and leaving a voicemail response (calls are charged at a local rate) A consultation event is being held at Sacred Trinity Church (Chapel Street, Salford, M3 5DW) on the 27 June 2019 between 12.30pm and 8pm.
  7. The NSPCC has revealed the shocking increase in recorded cases of sex crimes against children in the region, 2231 of which were carried out online. There has been an unsettling increase since 2015/16 when the number of cases was 417 but this has steadily risen and by 2018/2019 had reached 628. The charity sent Freedom of Information requests to all of the police forces in the uk and received responses from 40 out of the 44. Police in England and Wales have been marking online incidents with a cyber flag for the past four years. The data collected has revealed the shocking extent of the problem of crimes against those under 18, which include instances of sexual communication with children, online grooming and even rape. The most common age of the victims was just 13 but there were also offices against children much younger, and even sickening incidents involving babies. There are on average 22 reports made to police forces across the country, per day. Yet the NSPCC fears that this could be just the tip of a much larger iceberg as the data does not include information regarding other types of online harm against children such as those who have downloaded/viewed indecent images and other materials. The charities Chief Executive, Peter Wanless, said: The government is currently consulting on an online harms white paper, which outlines new laws to crack down on internet companies. Among the proposals under consideration is the introduction of an independent regulator to enforce a legal duty of care on technology companies to keep users safe on their platforms. Meanwhile social media platforms such as Facebook are saying they have made huge changes to their platforms to make them safer for youngsters. Some like Facebook have age limits on just who can hold an account but these measures are easily worked around upon sign up by simply giving false age information. Parents are now on the front lines of the battle and are being asked to be extra vigilant as to who their children are communicating with online. With more and more children becoming connected with internet capable devices and the ease of access to social media platforms, the problem is becoming worse by the day.
  8. Police arrived on scene at around 10:20pm on Monday night after being called out to investigate reports of an assault having taken place.

  17. An impromptu gathering outside the headquarters of the BBC in MediaCity, saw a well attended crowd gather to demand that coming changes to TV licencing for the 75's and over are shelved. The unpopular move by the BBC would see means testing employed to determine the eligibility of pensioners for a concessionary licence. Under previous legislation, anyone aged 75 or over could apply for a concessionary licence but now that is all set to change as the new ruling will mean that only those pensioners in receipt of pension credit will be eligible. In 2015 the Conservative government, guided by George Osborne, struck a deal under which the subsidy would be phased out by 2020, with the broadcaster having to shoulder the cost of free TV licences. This will result in an estimated 3 million+ elderly people losing out on their free licence once the new scheme takes effect on the 1st of June 2020. Unite the Union stood shoulder to shoulder with Salford Pensioners Association and the GMB's Retired Members Association to send a powerful message to the bosses at the BBC. The peaceful protest saw a number of speeches given by local campaigners, one of whom is a familiar face in Salford, (Media) Maria Brabiner who has been at the forefront of campaigning against what is now universally termed the bedroom tax. Maria was visibly angry over the coming changes and told us it is an absolute disgrace that from next year pensioners will be faced with losing their concessionary licences. She said, During the protest the BBC turned on the charm offensive by sending down a trolley filled with tea and biscuits for the gathered crowd, an offer which was promptly refused by all. One lady cheekily responded by saying that the gesture by the BBC was part funded by the £154.50 per year she has to pay. Several people we spoke too were quick to note that they laid the blame squarely with the Government who were responsible for the removal of the funding which covered the costs. One man said, Another responded saying, Chants of shame on you and down with the Tories, down with the BBC, were heard resonating around the square and after the speeches were made, the crowd peacefully dispersed soon after.
  18. Shortly after 8.30pm on Sunday 21 April 2019, a man entered Delta Supermarket on Brookhurst Lane, Little Hulton, brandishing a kitchen knife. He threatened shop workers and demanded money from the till before leaving with a quantity of cash, which he placed in a white draw string bag with ‘JD – King of Trainers’ written on it. Police have released CCTV images and are appealing for information. Detective Constable Philip Kumeta of GMP’s Salford District said: Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 5194 quoting incident 2177 of 21/04/19 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Which means that the conservatives have lost the seat previously held by Iain Lindley who stepped down from Council earlier this year. This means that the ward now has 3 Labour councillors. The election had previously been postponed due to the unfortunate death of the Conservative candidate George Andrew Darlington, who sadly passed away shortly before the May election. The results this evening are as follows.

  26. Salford's debut in the Carabao Cup will be one to remember after they have been drawn against Leeds United, The Ammies will take on the Leeds at home on the hallowed ground of the Peninsula Stadium. This is the first time that Salford have competed in the cup having won promotion to League Two last year after a sensational victory against Fylde at the spiritual home of British football, Wembley. The Ammies first match in the new season is set to be at Moor Lane, home of Stevenage. The match against Leeds will be a test for the new arrivals on the scene, although they finished third in the league last season and failed to be promoted they are still a formidable side in the league and all eyes will be on Salford to see how they perform. The Ammies are in a whole new league now and the little club which has already made huge waves is set to sail some stormy seas ahead. With the right captain and crew it looks like they could easily ride out the waves as SkyBet have already recently tipped them as bookies favourites to take the League Two crown. Manchester United legend and club part owner Gary Neville summed things up by tweeting a cheeky taunt at his old league rivals.
