Officers were called just before 11.10am today (Monday 12 April) to Liverpool Road, Eccles to a report of a disturbance. Emergency services attended and enquiries established a 41-year-old man had been stabbed inside a property. Despite the best efforts of medical staff, he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

  2. We have received unconfirmed reports of a possible stabbing incident on Liverpool Road in Eccles The incident seems to be focused around the former 'Inkspirations Tattoo Studio' which was recently converted into a residential 'home of multiple occupancy' or HMO. Both paramedics from NWAS and the Air Ambulance were called to the scene. Police forensics officers are currently carrying out investigations on the property which is located next to the Premier Shop. We are being told that at least one person has been injured and that there has been a possible fatality.
  3. What do you expect to find when you visit your local allotments, people growing, potatoes, fruit, vegetables, herbs, the occasional chicken coop or even a bee hive? Today we visited Mark Howard in Eccles to have a look at his highly unusual garden shed, unusual in it is some sixty foot long, and three feet deep and entered by going down, several stone steps, a six foot man or woman can easily stand upright and walk about in it. Mark has had the allotment for over three years and has taken it over from his Father in Law who had previously had it for over 30 years or m
  4. At around 11.10am on Tuesday 25 February 2020, police received a report of a firearm discharge that had occurred in the early hours of that morning on Coniston Avenue, Whitefield. Officers attended the scene and identified damage to a window and wall of a property that was consistent with that of a firearm discharge. Thankfully no injuries were reported and a full investigation was launched. Yesterday (Tuesday 30 March 2021) officers conducted a warrant at a property in the Eccles area and a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to endan
  5. Continuing with our pledge to reward the unsung community heroes who have done so much for their local community and for no reward or recognition, we had no hesitation in awarding the highly prized and much valued (that enough Ed?) award to a Community Champion. Today we visited Eccles Precinct to present our latest salford.media Community Award to a lady who is a familiar figure there as she serves up drinks in all weathers to her dedicated customers. Yvonne McGarvey has run the Eccles Coffee Stall there for the past four years and has turned this corner of the Precinct into a meeti
  6. Greater Manchester Police's Traffic Unit have made an arrest after they spotted a silver Mercedes vehicle being driven erratically in on Liverpool Road in Eccles. The occupant was asked to pull over after police from E-Relief became concerned over the persons manner of driving and the general condition of the vehicle. The passenger side front tyre of the vehicle was flat and badly damaged. Upon pulling over the occupant was asked to undertake a roadside drug wipe test which indicated positive for Cannabis. An arrest was made for the offence and the person was taken in
  7. Residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Ecclesholme, in Eccles, Manchester were delighted to be able to meet their loved ones in person for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Thanks to lateral flow testing, the Home has now been able to open its doors to family visits, following new guidance from the government, which allows each care home resident to receive visits from one family member or loved one. One of the first residents to be reunited with her daughter in person was 101 year old Bella Dooley. Bella was extremely happy to see her daughter again and to tell her how m
  8. On Tuesday we did a story on a true local hero, Fred Tewson, who some will know better as the chap which many of have you seen walking around the Barton and Peel Green areas in all weathers from 8am - 11am every day picking up discarded litter from the streets, hedges and parks and disposing of them responsibly. Earlier in the week we gave him a salford.media Community Champions Award which he fully deserved as he represents what our award is all about. Fred does not seek publicity or notoriety for his good deeds, he does it because he truly loves the local community he lives in and he is
  9. After a Review which took place earlier in the year, the Trustees Savings Bank (TSB) at Moorfield Parade in Irlam is set to close on the 25th of May. The move comes as the TSB revealed that 67% of all its customers are now using mobile, online or telephone banking, and in some branches they see an average of just 20 customers regularly visiting each week. Staff are now urging its customers to use the Branch in Eccles in the future should they require counter services as the bank moves more towards online banking as a way to provide its services. The move is part of a larger set
  10. Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey has told Parliament the harrowing story of one poor woman so desperate that she felt that she had no choice but to give up and rehome her beloved dogs as she could not afford to feed them any more, as a matter of fact she was so desperate for food herself she had to resort to eating dog food as it is all she had left in her cupboards. The story is just one of hundreds of truly horrific stories of people in Salford and across the whole country that have struggled to get access to the most basic necessities during the pandemic. There are huge sectio
  11. Update: At around 6:06am a second power outage occurred. If you are waking up due to a missed early morning wakeup alarm, then it should be known that a brief overnight power disruption across some parts of Salford left house alarms ringing and circuit breakers tripped. The later being especially unfortunate if they happen to be the ones which control power to your fridge/freezer as was the case in my home. I would urge you to check that your fridges and freezers are powered as soon as you awake this morning so as to avoid food spoiling. Flickering lights and reset electri
  12. I was contacted by a concerned Eccles resident who told me that the Eccles Coffee Stall in the middle of the precinct which has been run by Yvonne McGarvey for the past four years is facing possible closure with the news that The Salford Veterans Community Group will be opening a café and drop in centre in the empty premises which has been used by Bacon and Cheese, Ringwood's and Kenton's Cards over the years. I spoke to Yvonne who told me her fears about losing her pitch in the precinct. "I have been serving my regular customers for the past four years and have built up a good and
  13. We made a return visit to Clarendon Road School, Eccles today after being contacted about their recent novel fundraiser. The teachers and parents of pupils at the school had arranged to walk/run a mile for every pupil in the school, in a week with 326 pupils that meant a distance of 326 miles in five days. The walk/run was done following the Covid secure way following Government advice with the participants walking in pairs or solo. They set themselves a target of £2,000 with donations flowing in from parents and ex pupils, this was met and of today stands at a whoppin

    ECCLES REMEMBERS

    Despite adverse weather conditions and repeated warnings about mass gatherings with the covid pandemic, it was certain that the people would turn out to pay their respects at Eccles War Memorial today. Several hundred attended the muted service to lay wreaths, poppies and individual messages of support for the fallen. Wreaths were laid by The Merchant Navy Association, Eccles Labour Party, British Legion, Royal Air Force, Boy Scouts and others. A two minute silence was respectfully observed, whilst the poem, For The Fallen by Laurence Binyon was read out with the immor
  17. Let's roll back the clock to the golden, idyllic, Summer of 1970 when Brazil won the World Cup, 4-1 against Italy, The Beatles disbanded, 600,000 people gathered at The Isle of Wight to watch, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Tiny Tim, Mungo Jerry were top of the charts with, In The Summertime and the Drug Squad in Eccles were flexing their truncheons. At 12.15am, Saturday, July 11th the police raided a house on Abbey Grove, Eccles and several people there were arrested and taken to Green Lane Police Station for questioning, and were told there was reason to believe that they had been smoking, can
  18. I loved this story which was in the October edition of the Eccles and Patricroft Journal in 1970 and talk about gripping the reader by the throat with the first line, have a read of this, word for word. "Soccer hooligans, skinheads, hippies, yippies, Hells Angels - the headline hoggers of today. "Youths with a vengeance and a vandal breeding boredom, quite incomprehensible to their forefathers with the abundance of recreational facilities available. "Gangs sharing the view that violence and theft are OK, offloading their consciences onto friends by collective action, Nomadic gro
  19. Another story of love and romance from the pages of the Eccles and Patricroft Journal, October 1920, when love breaks down... John Henry Robinson who lived at Barlow Street, Patricroft appeared at Eccles Magistrates Court, charged with assaulting May Jackson in her home at Blears Buildings, Eccles and smashing crockery belonging to her mother, Margaret Jackson. Margaret Jackson told the Magistrate that Mr Robinson had been "walking out" with her daughter until three months ago and on the night of September 27th he called at the house to see, May.

  21. The Eccles and Patricroft Journal used to have a music correspondent who went by the name of "Tempo", he would review the latest albums and interview the local pop and folk groups. I came across this story from October 1970 and tells of the the folk trio, Centre Folk. The group consisted of and I quote, "The group consists of, Martin Stimson, the handsome, single, lead guitarist who plays the Tenor mandolin and banjo, a Manchester Corporation employee who lives on Worsley Road, Winton. "Ann Rhodes the pretty one who arranges much of the groups material, she plays the guita
  22. I came across this amusing story from the pages of The Eccles and Patricroft Journal for October 1970 and relates the story of a young lad who took the bottle at far too early an age. Ronald Dempsey Dixon lived at 23 Police Street, Patricroft and one evening he brought home half a bottle of whiskey for "medicinal purposes" and put it in a cupboard for safe keeping and told his three sons , Jeffrey (8), Alan (7) and Kenneth (4) that they must not touch it. You just know this isn't going to end well. On the Sunday morning two of the boys went downstairs, when Kenneth shouted up th

Don't be alarmed if you are walking through the streets of Eccles and see scarecrows popping out of gardens, hedges and bushes, it's only entries for the inaugural Eccles, Winton, and Monton Scarecrow Festival organised by Megan Dwyer a teaching assistant at Clarendon Road School.
