After much speculation on social media regarding the potential sake of the former Salford City Stadium to a third party, Sale Sharks - who have been linked to the deal, have issued a statement calling for talks between Salford City Council and its Co Owners Peel Holdings alongside Salford FC and Salford Red Devils in order to discuss options for creating a 'viable home' for all local clubs. The Sharks CEO Sid Sutton has also said that at this stage they have tendered no formal offer for the stadium which is currently shared by themselves and Salford's Red Devils. There have been unco
  2. It came as a shock to many when news broke this morning of the death of his royal highness the Duke of Edinburgh, just weeks after being discharged from hospital following an illness. It is said that the Prince fell asleep peacefully at Windsor Palace where both he and the queen have been staying throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Salford City Council has this afternoon issued a statement offering its deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family on the death of The Duke of Edinburgh. The Union flag has been lowered to half-mast at Eccles Town Ha

  4. At the start of the month we ran an article regarding the potential sale of the former Salford City Stadium, now known as the AJ Bell Stadium, located in Barton. Salford City Council maintain that any discussions on the sale of the stadium are still in the early stages and as yet neither the Council or Peel who make up the other half of CosCos (the joint owned 50-50 venture) have agreed any sale. An approach has been made in the past by the owner of Sale Sharks which was promptly turned down, with Salford Deputy Mayor, John Merry deeming the offer as being “unacceptable”. On the
  5. Salford City Council is reminding residents the clock is ticking for those who have not registered to vote. And the council is encouraging those who have already registered to consider applying for a postal vote to ensure they make their mark even if they’d prefer to stay at home. People have until midnight on Monday 19 April to register to vote - and until Tuesday 20 April to apply for a postal vote. Returning Officer Tom Stannard said: “The polls will open at 7am on Thursday 6 May and it is important that local people have their say. I’d encourage all our residents to make sur
  6. Salfordians are being reminded not to forget to fill in your census, if you’ve not already completed it there is still time and plenty of help available if you are struggling. Sunday March 21 was national census day but if you have not already completed it there is still time left - and it is a legal requirement that people do so. There have been some inaccurate reports in the media saying that the public had until Sunday night of the 21st of March to fill it in, otherwise you'd get a £1,000 fine! The census is still continuing, and reminder letters are now being sent out to hou
  7. Major work to three Salford roads will start from Monday April 12 and will last approximately six months. Salford City Council say the £1.3 million scheme to resurface the A6 Chapel Street is necessary to stop the road deteriorating further. It was repaved with granite blocks in 2011/2012 as part of work to revitalise the area which has unlocked more than £660 million worth of investment and development potential. The granite blocks have become damaged over time and need to be replaced. The cost will be part funded by a financial settlement agreed between Salford City Council and Urb
  8. The new announcement comes after poppies were painted on the road last year at Swinton Cenotaph to mark Remembrance Sunday. Due to the coronavirus pandemic the council asked people to stay at home and the annual service was streamed live on the internet. But since then members of the public have said they would like poppies painted at their local memorial, so the council has worked to make that possible. Approval has now been given to have poppies painted at Eccles War Memorial, Clifton War Memorial, Prince’s Park War Memorial, Chapel Street Cenotaph, Bolton Road and Agecroft Ro

  24.
