About Me

  1. A visit to Barton upon Irwell, Eccles today and a tour around the area and it's myriad delights. We took a close look at Barton Swing Aqueduct, the first and only swing aqueduct in the world which opened in 1761 and replaced in 1894, still working and a pleasure to watch in action/ Stonemason's marks in Pocket Park and the mystery of the 1824 stone engraved tablet, W.R.B. all explained. We look at the disgraceful condition of the 1894 Barton Road Swing Bridge, peeling paint, exposed metalwork and even the original wooden setts are showing through the potholes on the bridg
  2. In the past 24 hours we have received information concerning an approach by a currently unnamed third party with regards to the potential sale of the current home of Salford Red Devil & Sale Sharks - The AJ Bell Stadium, in Barton. Over the past few days there has been rumour circulating online that a stadium sharing deal between two other clubs has been put forward which could possibly see the future of Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell placed in jeopardy if the sale of the 12,000 seat were to be approved. Salford Council has today released a press statement confirming that an a
  3. A new branch of the Metrolink between MediaCityUK and Manchester City Centre, via Salford Crescent, could become a reality within the next 20 years under plans which make up part of the the City Centre Transport Strategy for 2014, which has now been backed by Salford City Council. A recent report has concluded that the Metrolink has brought major benefits to some local communities in the form of clean air and reduction of congestion on roads. Salford Council aims to place the crescent at the heart of the major transport gateway into and out of the city centre, along with pedestrianiz
  4. A further 14.6 acres of land around the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford is to be sold to make way for the development of warehouses and combined office space, totalling 275,000 ft. The land is currently in the ownership of CosCoS, (The City of Salford Stadium Community Stadium Limited), which is a partnership between Salford City Council and Peel L&P, and terms have been agreed to sell the site to an experienced developer in the logistics sector. Subject to planning, work on the new units could start by the end of the year and create around 350 new jobs. The planning team will conside
  5. Salford Council and City Mayor Paul Dennett will present its budget proposals for consideration during Wednesdays Full Council Meeting (Weds 24th Feb) and decisions will be made on increasing council tax by 1.99% and the adult social care precept by 2% after a challenging year. Since 2010/11 Salford has seen a staggering £222 million stripped from the cities budget due to savage cuts which have had huge impacts on the city and the local services it provides. Impacts which the council has tried hard to limit as best it can. The added burden of the Covid-19 Pandemic has not been kind a
  6. Salford IT expert Councillor John Mullen will have a whole new set of commands to programme into his Alexa – ‘manage my diary.’ Councillor Mullen, who represents Barton ward, will today (Wednesday January 20) be sworn in as Salford’s Ceremonial Mayor with his wife Michelle as Mayoress. The ceremony, which should have taken place last May, has been delayed because of the pandemic. Councillor Mullen paid tribute to outgoing Ceremonial Mayor Councillor Charlie McIntyre saying he had gone ‘above and beyond’ to serve the people of the city. “I’m delighted to be taking over the chain
  7. Largest Council housing scheme for 50 years in Salford – 417 new Council and community-owned homes, with the potential for 3,000 more on the horizon The largest scheme of housing developments for 50 years in Salford has been given the green light. Salford City Mayor approved recommendations from officers at the Property and Regeneration Briefing on Monday 14 December for a ‘self-build residential development case’ for 417 new eco-friendly homes to help tackle the housing crisis in the city, with support from its arm’s length company Dérive. Of the homes, 188 will be available for soc
  8. Wanted: someone who can 'eat' Playdough, turn into a pirate on demand and has a warm, smiling face. That’s the request of youngsters at five Salford nurseries who have helped write job descriptions for new staff. Salford City Council is recruiting for permanent and temporary posts at its five top class nurseries and staff decided to ask children what they would like to see in a new recruit. Deputy City Mayor Councillor John Merry, said: In return for such adaptability new recruits can expect a starting salary of £20,493 for a 36 hour week with both full and part time rol
  9. Salford City Council is hoping to give local shops a much needed boost with free parking in the run up to Christmas. Shoppers can use eight pay and display car parks in Eccles, Monton, Pendleton and Swinton for free on three Saturdays in December. They are Saturday December 5, Saturday December 12and Saturday December 19. Saturday December 5 is also national Small Business Saturday encouraging people to ‘search local, shop local’. Shoppers can find local retailers by searching by postcode and small businesses can register on the Small Business Saturday website www.smallbusinesssaturd
  10. Salford was once a place of forests of tree’s, tranquil village lanes and rolling fields. It boasted wildlife in abundances which we will most likely never see again. Sadly, things change and the cost of what we humans call progress is often paid by the environment and wildlife which inhabits it. Every day, more of that greenery is lost to development and the price is paid by our native species who increasingly come under pressure. In the past, our City has seen some of the worst pollution in the country due to its industrial heritage and as our population has grown we have expanded
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
