  1. I believe it was Benjamin Franklin who said, that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes, I would like to add another to that statement. I can virtually guarantee that if you go to someone's house for what ever reason, you will see a pint pot or a glass that has been nicked from a pub, c'mon admit it, we have all a Stella, Carling, Heineken, Boddingtons or Holts glass lurking in the cupboard... This story from the pages of the Salford City Reporter, September 1921, tells of what happened to a Mrs Catherine Walker who was found to be in possession of drinking glasses from a local pub, be warned. She appeared at Salford Magistrates Court charged with stealing (or receiving, well knowing them to have been stolen) five drinking glasses from The Cattle Market Hotel, Cross Lane, Salford and a further charge of being in unlawful possession of 44 more glasses. Superintendent Clark told the Court that a few days ago from something that came to the knowledge of Groves and Whitnall brewery who owned the pub and was passed onto him, concerning a number of drinking glasses in a house on West High Street, Salford, a search warrant was applied for and granted. The next evening, Detectives Coates and MacDonald visited the house and asked Mrs Walker if she had any drinking glasses that didn't belong to her, bearing the name of the Cattle Market Hotel, to which she replied, "No". One of the Detectives went into the living room and saw two glasses with the Imperial measure stamp on them, on the table, in a nearby locked cupboard was found a further 44 glasses, five of which were stamped, Cattle Market Hotel. She told them that the five glasses had been in her house for a number of years, and then added that she ran a boarding house which catered for artists performing at the nearby Salford Hippodrome and thought that, "theatricals had bought them in at various times" as for the other glasses they belonged to her. The manager of the Cattle Market was asked if there was any marks on the five engraved glasses which would indicate if they had been taken within the past two years, he said that in the case of two of them, that particular glass was not made two years ago. For the defence, Mr A. Gilman Jones said that with regard to the first case there was no evidence of theft, and as a matter of fact Mrs Walker had only been in the Cattle Market pub once during the past, three or four years, and that her husband had died, two years ago. He then tried to switch the blame onto the Artistes who had stayed at her house who he described as being, "happy go lucky people and travelling on a Sunday they brought food with them including, glasses, knives and forks, and they must have visited the Cattle Market pub and brought them out of the pub and back to her lodging house" Seems plausible enough to me. Mrs Walker then told the court that she had seen some of the glasses stamped, Cattle Market Hotel, and it was simply neglect on her part, not to return them, and since her husband had died there had been no new additions to the glasses collection, is she blaming him, now? The Stipendiary Magistrate ruled that she was guilty of receiving the five stamped glasses and fined her £5 or 28 days in prison, the second charge against her of unlawful possession of the other glasses was dropped. A strange case to say the least, I wonder who tipped the brewery off about her glasses collection, a disgruntled lodger perhaps? and also was she allowed to keep the remaining other glasses? So the next time your in Wetherspoons or some such pub, think about Mrs Walker afore slipping a glass into your pocket or bag....
  2. A Salford sunbed shop has been ordered to stop allowing customers to top up their tans in the midst of a pandemic. Ten people were found on the premises either on sunbeds, waiting to use them or having just completed treatment when police visited the premises of Bronze Boutique Sunbed Shop in Market Way, Salford last week. Salford City Council has now served a prohibition order on the premises requiring the business to cease any cosmetic treatment during lockdown. Failure to comply with the order could lead to a £10,000 fixed penalty notice or prosecution with an unlimited fine on conviction. Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, said the actions were ‘unbelievable.’ PC Krys Urbaniak from GMP said: It is unknown if the operators own a string of successful sunbeds shops in Greater Manchester.

  3. Plans for the next stage of the transformation of Pendleton have been approved. A further 127 new energy efficient homes were approved by Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett at the council’s Property and Regeneration Briefing on Monday 8 March. The meeting papers spell out the full scale of the ambition for the third phase of regeneration in the area. The development plans show a mix of two, three and four bedroomed homes which includes four wheelchair units and 15 new allotments for local people. The state-of-the art homes will have high efficiency gas boilers installed, LED lighting and solar panels on the roof to lower energy usage and reduce energy bills. The design of the scheme puts a strong emphasis on high quality public spaces with 29 new street trees and cycle paths and walking routes to connect people to other parts of the city – including Salford Quays. Deputy City Mayor Councillor Tracy Kelly, who is also the council’s lead member for housing, said: We hope to make a further announcement on the next phases of development in the near future alongside proposals to deliver a new leisure centre.
  4. Police Officers are investigating after two men were seriously injured in a road traffic collision on Liverpool Street. Shortly after 1.15pm on Tuesday 15 December 2020, a grey Mercedes C2020 was travelling on Liverpool Street towards Langworthy Road, when it collided with a silver Toyota Yaris. The driver of the Toyota Yaris , a man in his 20s, sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital. The driver of the Mercedes, a man in his 40s, was also taken to hospital also with serious injuries. No arrests have so far been made. Police investigators are appealing for any information and want to speak to anyone who saw the incident take place or saw the cars in the area before the collision. They would particularly like to hear from anyone with dashcam footage of the incident. Details can be passed on to police by calling 0161 856 6108 quoting incident number 1354 of 151220. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  5. The newspaper, Salford City Reporter for November 1920 carried the following story and rather sensationally called it, "the remarkable story of the life lead by a young girl" Ellen Ben Saleh appeared at Salford Magistrates Court charged with the theft of £66 from her mother, a widow who resided at Hancock Street. Pendleton. Detective Inspector Mitchell told the court that for some time the mother had been saving up and a portion of the money was a gratuity from the army authorities which she received in consequence of the death of her son, the money along with a small amount of gold was kept in a box in the kitchen of the house. When it was discovered missing the police were informed, Detective Sergeant McNee made enquiries and questioned the girl who denied all knowledge of the theft, however the next day she absconded and nothing was heard from her, until her husband returned from the sea and he took her to the police station. Initially she told the police she had nothing to with the theft, then admitted it and said, "I might as well tell you all about it, I stole the money whilst mother was out and I gave it all to a man who I know" She then broke into tears and sobbing asked for another chance. Detective Inspector Mitchell then took to the stand and gave a detailed account of the last few months of the girl's life and pretty damning it was too. He said the girl's mother had tried to shield her but she seemed beyond control and had been going out with a man who lived in a lodging house, who threatened her if she didn't give him money and he thought that the stolen money was divided between the two of them. Seven months ago she had met Ben Saleh in a public house and after only a few days she asked him to marry her, shortly after the marriage Saleh returned to a ship at Salford Docks and went on a six month voyage and only returned on the day when he surrendered his wife to the police. She had worked in cafe's in Manchester and as a barmaid in pubs on Cross Lane but had been associating with "loose women" and had got into debt and had stole the money to pay them off, he then added that Ben Saleh was going to leave Salford for ever as soon as this court case was over. He finally added, "She is a thoroughly bad girl, she is crying now, but no doubt the first thing she will do after leaving this courtroom will be to ask me for a cigarette" Ouch! The Stipendiary Magistrate, Mr P. W. Atkin, promptly sentenced her to four months imprisonment with hard labour. The newspaper reported that the poor girl, fainted and had to be carried from the dock and owing to her cries the following court case was halted until she was placed in the prison cells below the court. To sum up the girl not only lost her liberty but her husband who no doubt had seen a glimpse of the life he faced if he stayed with her and sailed out of Salford. Hopefully she saw the errors of her ways and kept out of the pubs on Cross Lane and led a hard working, sober life, but I somehow doubt it.
  6. The Height and Bolton Road areas of Salford were subjected to a fortnight's rampage of burglary, arson and theft which only ended when two youths aged 15 and 16 appeared at Salford Magistrates Court in October 1920 and the full story unfolded. Mrs Lewthtwaite owned a supper bar on Broad Street, Salford and on the previous Thursday evening at 10pm, she was in the kitchen of her house, when she heard a loud bang and glass breaking, she saw Cecil Wilkinson drop into her yard. Her son ran out and apprehended him, only to be told that he was looking for his ball, he then saw another boy nearby, who ran away when approached, the police were sent for and Wilkinson was taken into custody for questioning. Wilkinson soon told the police the name of his accomplice, Arthur Smith and he was soon arrested and brought into custody. Superintendent Clarke questioned the boys and they readily admitted that, they intended breaking into the barbers shop next door to the supper bar and were looking for money to steal. However once they started confessing they couldn't stop and told an astonished Superintendent Clarke a long list of their misdemeanours, they had carried out in the past fortnight. At the Magistrates Court he applied to have the boys remanded in custody for a week whilst further cases might be investigated, the remand was granted and both boys. despite their age where remanded to Strangeways prison. One week later the two boys, Cecil Wilkinson of, Saxby Street and Arthur Smith of Bolton Road, Pendleton stood in the dock and a remarkable catalogue of their crimes was read out. Breaking and entering, 34 Acresfield Road and stealing foodstuffs to the value of £1, 18 shillings and ninepence. Setting fire to The Olympia Picture Palace, West Street, stealing 10 shillings and a quantity of chocolate. damaging seventeen seats and a piano. Damaging and spoling five motor cars, a planing machine and a band saw at Messr Thomas Carters Motor Works, Trafford Road. Setting fire to St Thomas's School, Broughton Road, Salford. Breaking and entering Messr Lancaster and Tonge's offices, Withington Street, Salford stealing £3 19 shilling and 7 pence, and a box of cigarettes. Breaking and entering the schoolroom on King Street, the Height and stealing 11 pence. Breaking and entering into St Anne's School, Brindleheath, damaging six panes of glass, two pairs of curtains and lengths of woodwork. Breaking and entering Halton Bank School, Bolton Road damaging five electric globes, 38 pound of flour and a water pipe. The boys pleaded guilty to all these charges. Superintendent Clarke told the Court that there had been, "a fifteen day scare" as shops, homes, businesses and schools were targeted, in addition over £1,000 worth of damage had been caused by arson and wilful damage. He asked the Magistrate Mr P. W. Atkin that the boys be sent to the Assizes for sentencing considering the severity of the offences and then dropped the bombshell that at the premises of Messr Thomas Carters Motor Works, Trafford Road, the boys had hung, the workshop cat and killed it. The boys were defended by Mr Howard Flint, who asked the Magistrate if the boys could not be dealt with on this day by the court, adding that they were both from respectable families and had been influenced by reading "trashy cheap, literature" The Magistrate turned down his plea for a trial at the Magistrate Court and added that there was no reason why they should be cruel to a cat. The boys were sent to the Asizes for trial and here is the cliff hanger, I have no idea how they went on there, considering the amount of damage and mayhem they caused I am certain they would be sent to prison and it would that their act of cruelty to a cat ensured they would face the wrath of an Assize Judge.
  7. Earlier this week on Monday 31 August, Tactical Vehicle Intercept Unit (TVIU) officers covertly followed a car after they suspected it to be linked to a previous incident that involved an attempted theft. The officers asked the driver of the car to stop, however they failed to do so and instead drove off at speed along Pendleton island roundabout. As officers were pursuing the car, the driver rammed the police car and the occupants inside brandished weapons towards the pursuing officers. The offenders threw items at the officers during the pursuit and when they eventually abandoned the vehicle, they discarded the weapons and made off on foot. With the support of the police helicopter, firearms officers and the dog unit all four males were detained in a housing estate situated off Waterloo Road, Crumpsall. Following a search of the vehicle, a number of weapons were found in the boot of the offenders' car. Four men – a 23-year-old, 27 year-old, 29 year-old and a 28-year-old – were arrested on suspicion of theft of motor vehicle, attempted section 18 assault, affray and criminal damage. Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

  10. It has been over one year since the heartbreaking scenes of devastation hit the news after a fire tore through a building wrapped in the same combustible cladding as used on many Salford residential tower blocks. A resident of one of those blocks wrote into postbag to tell of his anger and upset at what he views as a lack of action by Salford City Council and Pendleton Together. ---- I am one of many residents who live in one of the Pendleton Tower Blocks that have similar cladding and insulation to the Grenfell Tower Block. Shortly after the Grenfell Tower Fire, the Salford Mayor Paul Dennett announced to the media that all cladding from their nine blocks would be tested and if the tests failed it would be removed. In a later press release, it was revealed he was borrowing £25 million to replace the cladding. Now over a year on from Grenfell, what has happened to the Nine Tower Blocks owned by Salford City Council and run by Pendleton Together? 1) Fire Marshals were put in the Nine Blocks to patrol 24/7. However, we have recently found out that the so-called Fire Marshals have only just recently had training for doing this job. What training we don’t know. 2) Salford City Council/Pendleton Together removed the unsafe cladding from all Nine Blocks, but only the first three floors of each block and replaced it with what Salford City Council and Pendleton Together told residents was a safe boarding. 3) Pendleton Together then told residents to remove all doormats from outside their doors (most doormats are or were fire resistant). If the mats were not removed, the cleaning teams were told to remove them and they were then binned without any further notice to the residents. 4) Pendleton Together then told vehicle owners they could not park in the first two parking spaces that were closest to the building. Every block was supposedly told this, however, if you go round the blocks you will see this is not enforced on all blocks. It is on Thorn but not on Spruce where cars are parked within a couple of feet from the building wall and the same applies to some of the other blocks in the square. 5) The residents of Thorn were also told to remove plastic flower pots from alongside the building. When asked why we were told they could catch fire. Also, chairs and tables were removed from the community garden for the same reason and that the fire service had told Pendleton Together to enforce this. However, when the fire service was asked about this by residents, the residents were told that they had not told Pendleton Together this and that Pendleton Together has taken it upon themselves to implement the rule. 6) Salford City Council and Pendleton Together then decide to install fire alarms in the Tower Block but these are as much use a fire extinguisher that is empty! Why? Because the fire alarms were placed in the stairwell and not on landings, there is a fire door on each landing that acts like a sound buffer so most residents cannot hear the alarm in their flats when they are tested each week. 7) Salford City Council and Pendleton Together in their ultimate wisdom have decided to install new fire alarms and sprinklers in every flat. That consultation was months ago but as they say, silence is golden and in Salford City Councils and Pendleton Together case the silence is deafening. We the residents have not been told if this is going to happen and if so when it will happen. And who at the end of the day is going to be picking up the cost of redecorating residents flats when every room is going to be affected? Pendleton Together is constantly telling us that the safety of their residents is a top priority. Well, it seems something has been lost in the pipeline with their own policy. On Friday the 6th July 2018, one of the hottest days so far, some bright spark from Pendleton Together decided to remove fire extinguishers from the nine blocks that still have the unsafe cladding on them. And no one from Pendleton Together had the decency to contact any member of the resident's committee of Thorn Court to inform them that the fire extinguishers were being removed from the community room and community room kitchen. When a member of the resident's committee contacted Pendleton Together, the housing officer informed him they had been removed in error and would be on the way back to the block, this was at 2:00 pm by 5.30pm the committee member checked to see if the items had been returned. They had not and everyone at Pendleton Together had left the office. So the out of hours service was contacted and after some time two of the three fire extinguishers were returned by the fire marshals. They said that no one from Pendleton Together had informed them that these were being removed. So far no one from Pendleton Together has responded to a voice message I left on Friday.

  11. Eye witness reports say that the man fell from the 12th floor onto the roof of a small building adjoining the tower block, paramedics, fire and police quickly arrived at the scene where upon they immediately attempted to resuscitate him. Police and Fire services gave assistance to the paramedics by providing access to the roof. It is unknown as to the circumstances that led to the man falling but police are still present and the area is currently cordoned off, it will remain so until the police investigation concludes. The condition of the fallen man is currently not known. We will update this post as soon as more info is available.
