  2. Today we paid a return visit to Ringley Village to see local history book publisher, Sue Richardson, to see how she is coping with book sales and the Corona virus, also to present her with the salford.media award in recognition of both her and Neil's work in documenting and preserving the diverse history of Salford and Greater Manchester. For over 40 years they have been publishing local history books at affordable prices, with books that cover all aspects of life in Salford and Greater Manchester, which are a boon to both the serious academic and keen local historian, alike. With the death of Neil in 2006, it was feared that Sue would close the publishing house and leave a massive void in the local book market, she has bravely continued with Neil's good work and for that, I thank her along with many other people. Following the video interview we did with her last week she was delighted to receive a request for a book catalogue from the Mayor of Salford, Paul Dennett, who hopefully will place a massive order! Also she received telephone orders from both local people including a request from Norway! and a several visitors to her home. So, once again I am asking you to support local business who will be struggling in these difficult times. Please contact Sue on 01204 578138 or via email at wattywalton@btconnect.com Or if you send a Stamped Addressed Envelope to Sue at 88 Ringley Road, Stoneclough, Radcliffe, Manchester, M26 1ET. She will send you a catalogue of all of the over 100 books available
