About Me

  1. Young people in Salford are looking to the future as the city celebrates National Youth Work week (November 2 to November 8.) Salford City Council’s youth service, which works with more than 400 young people each week, will be running projects on the skills employers are looking for such as communication and team-work and staying positive and being hopeful as part of the week’s celebrations. The team has had to move much of its work online because of the pandemic but has continued to work with more than 400 young people every week. The work ranges from fun activities to help you
  2. Poppies are being painted on the road in Salford to mark Remembrance Sunday. The move comes after residents were asked to ‘make a sacrifice’ and commemorate Remembrance Sunday at home this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. This year the council will show a service of remembrance and a wreath laying ceremony over the internet from 11am on Remembrance Sunday, 8 November. And two poppies have been painted on Chorley Road opposite the cenotaph where people would usually attend to mark the significant day. The poppies were installed free of charge by KAYS Traffic Managem
  3. Salford residents are being asked to ‘make a sacrifice’ and commemorate Remembrance Sunday at home this year because of COVID-19. The Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Charlie McIntyre, said this year’s remembrance would be different but no less dignified or heartfelt. Salford City Council is also displaying memorial banners and a giant poppy on the Civic Centre and has posted ideas on its website under the banner Remember at Home for ways to pay tribute during the day. Please see www.salford.gov.uk/rememberathome Subject to any changes in government coronavirus gu
  4. Salford community groups have pulled together to help local families have a safe and happy half term, Halloween, Bonfire Night and Diwali. With new Tier 3 restrictions on households mixing to combat rising coronavirus infection rates and the cancellation of organised firework displays, Salford City Council has created a ‘Celebrate Safely’ section on its website at www.salfordgov.uk/celebratesafely . It features videos ranging from how to make salt dough, hold a poetry race or make a shadow puppet to gruesome Halloween recipes and even tips on how to make sure wildlife benefits from y
  5. Earlier in the week a majority of Conservative MP's voted to reject measures which would have seen help offered to struggling families over the school holiday period. Salford has one of the highest rates of child poverty in the country due to having suffered some of the harshest cuts in living memory and with the pandemic seemingly growing by the day, thousands of people across the city are waking to the prospects that they may be pushed closer to the poverty line. It is a stark truth that families across Salford face a bleak future ahead and as usual those affected the most are thos
  6. GMP's dedicated operation to tackle serious and organised crime in Salford has launched the first in a series of action days to continue the disruption of criminal activity across the district. Officers from GMP's Salford division will be undertaking regular action in the coming weeks as part of Operation Naseby's disruption hub - formed in April earlier this year to reduce the activity of local organised crime groups. Today (Wednesday 22 October 2020), a dedicated team are searching Buile Hill Park for any firearms and other dangerous weapons that may be present in the area and need
  7. Salford City Council has appointed a new chief executive after the up to £164,108 per year position was advertised early last month to replace Jim Taylor who will retire from the job after almost 40-years at the council at the end of January 2021. Tom Stannard, the current Corporate Director for Regeneration and Economic Growth at Wakefield Council, will take on the role from 1st February 2021 under the elected City Mayor, Paul Dennett. Tom joined Wakefield City Council in 2018 and has responsibility for a wide range of the Council’s regeneration, economy and place services. He has b
  8. Thirteen Salford keyworkers have joined together in a plea to the public to fight flu this winter. The group, which include health workers, council staff, teachers, a tram driver and a volunteer, were typical of those praised by the public for keeping the city moving and supporting vulnerable people during lockdown earlier this year. Now they are calling on the public to do their bit by getting vaccinated against flu so the NHS and social care are not fighting two major illnesses this winter. The campaign has been launched by Salford City Council, Salford NHS Clinical Commissioning G
  9. Salford City Council is proposing to introduce landlord licensing for shared homes, where three or four tenants live. The move comes after inspections over the last 12 months of smaller homes in multiple occupation (HMOs) showed issues with fire safety, damp and heating along with problems over storing and disposing of domestic waste leading to complaints from neighbours. Ninety two percent of the three and four person HMO homes inspected showed problems ranging from missing to inadequate fire alarm systems despite it being a legal requirement, missing or damaged fire doors, inadequa
  10. Plans for a solar farm in Little Hulton and a hydro scheme at Charlestown Weir, Salford have taken another step forward. City Mayor Paul Dennett has formally agreed to a partnering agreement with Energy Systems Catapult, a not-for-profit centre of excellence that aims to help the council make the most of the clean growth opportunities. This decision means the council will be able to access expert advice and guidance as well as European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grants to address the gap in funding. The plan is to build a 3.79 hectare solar farm with 5,094 solar panels at
  11. Charlotte Ramsden, Strategic Director of People at Salford City Council has been awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Mrs Ramsden, who joined the council in 2014, has been honoured for her sterling work in supporting the development of services for children and young people across Greater Manchester since 2016. Thanks to her leadership the region was awarded £7.43 million in government innovation funds to support more families with early social care and work intensively with children and young people on the verge of coming into local auth
  12. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett has pledged to continue the fight against homelessness as Salford marks World Homelessness Day (Saturday October 10.) Mayor Dennett said the council had faced one of its most challenging years ever with the impact of COVID-19 and that a tough winter could lie ahead. He urged anyone worried about debts to seek advice now and pledged to continue the drive to support rough sleepers and provide more affordable housing. This year Salford City Council was highly commended in the Local Authority of the Year award for its work on creating new homes and af
  13. Cadishead Councillor Lewis Nelson has been appointed as Salford's first Wildlife Champion. In this role, Councillor Nelson will be responsible for championing wildlife across city and working with partners and residents to improve green spaces for wildlife. He will also take responsibility for creating a Salford Wildlife Forum, similar to that of the Salford Walking and Cycling Forum, that will allow residents to shape the priorities of the city in respect to wildlife. Lewis is one of the youngest councillors in Salford but has been directly involved in helping to protect the th
  14. Salford Mayor, Paul Dennett, has lead tributes to former leader of Salford's Liberal Democrats 'Stormin Norman Owen' who it has been revealed, sadly passed over the weekend. I think it is fair to say that Norman was the last and if truth known, only real opposition to Salford Labour over the years, his unique 'direct' style saw him become a regular thorn in their side spanning two decades. During his tenure as leader, the party enjoyed a sizable chunk of Salford's political seats, with 10 councillors under his control. However, those glory days for the party were not to last, as afte
  15. A planned protest which was to have taken place tomorrow (Saturday 3rd October) against the sale of the historic Swinton Park Golf Club to a housing provider has been called off after a new development in the long running battle to save the club. Your Housing Group which is one of the country’s largest affordable housing providers has pulled out of the purchase of Swinton Park Golf Club, honouring a commitment it had made to members and residents. The Group had been exploring the site as an option for development for affordable housing, reportedly the asking price was £10m, which wa
  16. The mere mention of his name stirs many different emotions within Salford, the foremost of which is pride, for he represented the spirit of our city on the global stage, not with words but with his selfless actions. Alan saw a problem and knew he had to help do his part to resolve it, and when war tore through Syria, the Salford dad could not sit back and watch children suffer. So the Eccles taxi driver took action, joined a humanitarian aid group based out of Bolton and headed into a war zone to bring much needed aid and supplies to the countless orphans who were left behind after t
  17. Salford City Council has now been accredited with a silver award for its commitment to supporting defence services within its origination and the wider armed forces community. The award recognises the council for ‘going the extra mile and turning written pledges into concrete action.’ The local authority is also praised for acknowledging the contribution serving personnel, veterans, cadet force adult volunteers and their families make to the country – and making sure they are not disadvantaged by their service. The silver award follows City Mayor Paul Dennett picking up the bron
  18. Shopkeepers’ dreams of cashing in on illegal tobacco have gone up in smoke, thanks to raids by Salford City Council. Council officers, and sniffer dogs Ricco, Lilly, Birch and Billy from Wagtails UK, visited 25 businesses and one residential address as part of this year’s Keep it Out campaign against illegal and counterfeit tobacco. In the bedroom of a home, which was raided with Greater Manchester police, officers found holdalls and boxes containing 67,950 counterfeit cigarettes and 153 x 50 g pouches of hand rolling tobacco. The haul, with an estimated street value of £40,000 is th
  19. Parents driving children to school are being urged to park legally, safely and considerately ahead of new CCTV enforcement from Monday September 21. Salford City Council will install new CCTV cameras outside four schools next week to crackdown on drivers who put children’s lives at risk. The cameras will move around known danger hotspots and those caught breaking the law will be sent a £70 penalty charge, reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days. Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, said if drivers park legally, safely and considerately t
  20. Salford City Council has scooped two awards at the prestigious 2020 Housing Heroes Awards. The Supported Housing Team won the Frontline Team of the Year and the Support and Care Team of the Year awards at the national award ceremony. The council was nominated for the phenomenal work over the last 12 months of the Supported Tenancies, Temporary Accommodation and Rough Sleeper Teams for their work with homeless households in the city. These three teams work seamlessly together to make up the Supported Housing Team. And the awards recognise the significant work of officers who supp
  21. Domestic abuse incidents have risen over the past few years while calls to the national helpline have soared by 25 per cent during lockdown. The new service, funded by Salford NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, will aim to break the cycle of abuse. Salford City Council, which is commissioning the service from Greater Manchester charity TLC: Talk, Listen, Change, says over 79 per cent of cases supported by its children’s services involve concerns about domestic abuse. Last year the multi-agency MARAC panel which reviews domestic abuse cases heard over 1,040 high risk cases, just over
  22. Salford is to lead the way in developing the national approach to community testing for coronavirus over coming weeks. The new community testing model will identify the best way to deliver a quick and simple saliva test, without any of the discomfort of the existing nose and throat swab test. The development of the use of this new, rapid coronavirus test will begin in Salford with a phased roll out. When fully implemented it will be available to people who live, work and study in the city and people of all ages and backgrounds will be able to test on a weekly basis by providing saliv
  23. Council planners gave the go ahead today (5th Nov) for a new major trauma centre to be built between the current Hope building and the neighbouring Clinical Science building. The new six storey building will house five new operating theatres as well as space for 72 beds and would be open 24/7 all year round. It is hoped that the new build with its roof top helipad will save upwards of 50 more lives per year from across the region as every second counts for critically injured patients. The current system requires patients to be shuttled across to the hospital by an awaiting ambulance
  24. Salford Council has issued a warning after reports of a man with an Eastern European Accent who has been knocking on doors claiming to be authorised to collect money for council tax bills on their behalf. When challenged he has presented an obviously fraudulent letter which he claims to be authorisation to act as a collector. The letter raised suspicions when it was noted to be hand written, badly photocopied, with a 'Thank you for your love' expressed at the bottom. Now we are no not saying the Council doesn't love us all, I am sure they have big hearts but its not exactly the most
  25. With scathing criticism from tenants over everything from flammable cladding to dodgy windows in an article in the Salford Star this week (see this link), Salford Council has attempted to explain the reasons for the delays in removal and replacement of the flammable cladding, in doing so places that blame squarely at the feet of the Government who they say are frustrating matters with red tape and a refusal to let the council lend the money needed. The council says it made a commitment in August 2017 to lend up to £25m to Pendleton Together Operating Limited, the PFI company responsible f
