  1. Over the summer holidays, local charity Foundation 92 has been helping disadvantaged children across Greater Manchester to access inclusive exercise and activities, as well as providing healthy food for those who would normally receive free school meals. Working alongside Manchester City Council, Salford City Council and Trafford Council, Foundation 92 has successfully delivered free-to-access Holiday Activity Fund clubs at 11 different locations across the city, supporting up to 60 children per location who face adversity and inequality through no fault of their own. From Monday to Friday each week, children have taken part in multi-sport activities, arts, crafts and specialist youth work, as well as receiving a free, healthy meal. Foundation 92’s 5,000th activity of the summer was marked with a small celebration at the Aquarius Centre in Hulme. Throughout the summer, Foundation 92 has provided 5,000 free places to children, putting them at the forefront of Holiday Activity Fund delivery across Greater Manchester. The scheme has only been made possible through support and funding from the Department for Education and local authorities, as well as the campaigning of footballer Marcus Rashford MBE. Foundation 92 is the official charitable partner of Salford City FC, owned and founded by the celebrated Class of 92. The foundation works with communities across Greater Manchester to promote sports & physical activity; health & wellbeing; education & employability and inclusion. Tom Hutton, Head of Foundation 92, said: One of Foundation 92’s most popular summer camps delivered through the Holiday Activity Fund has been based at the Aquarius Centre in Hulme, with an average of 40 local children attending every day. In a further social value investment, free meals have been provided by local Community Interest Company 4CT Limited, who offer employment to ex-offenders. Manchester City Council’s Chief Executive, Joanne Roney, said:
  2. Salford Red Devils player are lining up their defense against Covid-19 by joining the thousands of people getting their vaccine in Salford. Members of the famous Salford team visited the Covid-19 vaccination bus at Salford Quays, based outside the Lowry Theatre. Some players got their first dose and for others it was their second dose. In the sporting world, Covid-19 has affected normal activities considerably and led to the postponement and cancellation of a vast number of national and international events. Therefore, Salford Red Devils is doing their bit to get vaccinated in hope to get sports events back to normal and to keep everyone safe. First team starter 23-year-old Jack Wells who got his first dose at the vaccination bus said: His fellow teammate, international player and first team starter 30-year-old Kallum Watkins said: Tim Sandels, General Practitioner at Salford Red Devil’s club doctor and St Johns Medical Centre said: Another important consideration for young adults to think about is the risk of bringing infections home to family members who might be at higher risk for severe disease. Even though a person may have had the infection previously, they should still receive the vaccine to prevent from getting seriously ill and to prevent having long-term Covid symptoms. All Salford residents over 18 years old, aged 16/17 years old and have an underlying health condition, or a carer either paid or unpaid can book their Covid-19 vaccine appointments here, or attend a walk-in clinic. NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) shares daily updates and details on walk-in clinics on their social media and their Covid-19 vaccine walk-in page. The national booking system is also available for anyone to book or manage their appointment. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
  3. The restoration and eventual re-opening of Buile Hill parks beloved Georgian Mansion took a major step forward toward yesterday with the joint signing of a memorandum of understanding between Salford City Council and the Buile Hill Mansion Association (BHMA). The group formed after a huge public backlash against interim proposals put forward by Capital & Centric boss Tim Heatley in 2018, which suggested building a number of homes on land within the Mansion complex depot area as a way of funding renovations of both the Mansion and Park in general. An online petition posted at the time by local resident Linda Curran, gained thousands of signatures against the plans within just a few days, prompting the idea to eventually be abandoned as the company walked away. The stately home was built in 1827 as the abode of Sir Thomas Potter, the first Lord Mayor of Manchester, it was eventually purchased by the Council and opened to the public on the 22nd July 1903, the former home being reopened as a natural history museum a few years later in 1906. The current boundary of the park was formed as a result of the absorption of the former Hart Hill estate in 1938. The much beloved historic gem would go on to become the home of the Lancashire Mining Museum up until it saw closure to the public in the year 2000, remaining boarded up and mothballed ever since. However, now thanks to a lot of hard work put into the project by both the Council and the BHMA, along with an election commitment made by the City Mayor to restore it to full use within his second term of office, the future of the Grade II listed Mansion is looking the brightest it has been in decades, with remedial work costing up to £150k already set to start within the coming month. Paul Dennett, visited the park yesterday (Monday 5th July), meeting with BHMA committee members to put his signature alongside that of the associations chair, Jenni Smith, on a memorandum of understanding to jointly work on the plans and proposals for the site. In the meantime, the BHMA has wasted no time by enlisting the skills of respected local horticulturalist Pete Simms who has been working alongside them on exciting plans to bring about the restoration of the sensory garden which lies adjacent to the Mansion, after permission to do so was granted by the Council. Additionally the council has also earmarked and committed £1.2m to the mansion aiming to work with the BHMA to produce a business plan for both the mansion and depot area, as well as assisting in finding third party funding to support its eventual full restoration and reopening. The eventual cost could be as much as £5m. Upcoming work will help restore the building so that it does not fall into a further state of disrepair, dealing with rot and making sure that it is structurally sound, with the overall aim being to bring both the mansion and depot area back to life in a way which the community and city to benefit from. The task will not be easy and there will no doubt be many obstacles to navigate along the way but for once both the council and the people seem to be on the same page regarding the historic building, with the Mayor speaking with real optimism regarding plans for its future.
  4. The homes are being built on three sites - Clifton Green in Pendlebury and Brassington Avenue and Ryall Avenue which are both in Ordsall. The developments are made up of 30 homes and 99 apartments including wheelchair friendly homes at all sites. It is intended that the homes will become part of Dérive Housing’s portfolio – a company owned by Salford City Council. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: The homes in the three sites are being constructed by Seddon with the construction design and consultancy provided by Identity Consult. Jonathan Seddon, CEO at Seddon said: The City Mayor was joined on the visits by Deputy City Mayor Councillor Tracy Kelly, Lead Member for Housing, Property and Regeneration and the council’s Chief Executive Tom Stannard. Representatives from Seddon and Identity also joined the visit. Councillor Kelly said: Planning permission was approved for all the developments in October 2020. All the homes will be highly insulated, beyond current government standards, to reduce energy use and bills and lower their carbon footprint. Salford City Council is hoping this will encourage other housing developers to follow its environmental lead.

  5. Salford City Council is asking local people to help make a difference this Clean Air Day. This national Clean Air Day is Thursday 17 June and the council would like residents to try and travel on foot – or by bike or another sustainable way. Councillor Mike McCusker, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development at Salford City Council, said: Councillor McCusker continued: To try and help cut emissions the council’s environmental services has recently swopped their diesel vans with 12 electric equivalents. The council bought the new Renault Kangoo vans in November, which will be used in environmental operational service areas such as: waste and recycling collection monitoring; fly tipping investigation and enforcement; dog, animal and pest welfare and control. An E-scoter pilot is also taking place in Salford covering the University of Salford Peel Park and Fredrick Road campuses, Ordsall and the city centre and MediaCityUK, since launch in October 2020 80,000 miles of journeys have been made saving a potential 82,850lbs of CO2. Salford City Council has over the last few years implemented a number of walking and cycling improvements to develop our network including Port Salford Greenway, Salford Cycleway, Ordsall Quietway and Walkden Quietway. Most recently a number of segregated cycle routes have been provided on key corridors such as Oldfield Rd and Chapel to improve access to the city centre. Investment in walking and cycling continues and future developments funded through the Mayors Walking and Cycling Challenge Fund (MCF) which are currently being constructed include Liverpool Street, Trafford Road, Swinton Greenway and RHS Links. These will provide best in class cycling and waling routes for Salford ready for Clean Air Day 2022.

  6. A Salford shopkeeper continued to sell illegal and counterfeit cigarettes despite two previous raids by trading standards officers, a court was told. Officers found counterfeit cigarettes and empty cartons at the Little Hulton shop on the day officers went to caution him for the two previous offences. Mr Shujat Ali, (DOB 15/12/1981) owner of Super Discount Store, Hulton District Centre pleaded guilty to two offences under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 and the Trade Marks Act 1994 for possession of counterfeit cigarettes when he appeared at Salford and Manchester magistrates court on 20 May 2021. He was fined £780, ordered to pay £740 costs and a £30 victim surcharge. The cigarettes were ordered to be destroyed. The court heard that trading standards officers and a specialist dog handler visited the business on 29 May 2019 and seized illicit tobacco worth £7,000. They recovered 11,000 cigarettes, 7,780 of which were counterfeit and 107 pouches of hand rolling tobacco, six of which were counterfeit. Two weeks later on June 11, officers carried out a follow up visit and seized 720 cigarettes, of which 520 were counterfeit, worth £882. All the products were seized and Mr Ali accepted a caution for the offences. On November 28, 2019, following more public complaints about the shop, trading standards officers and a specialist dog handler visited the premises and asked Mr Ali if there were any illegal products on site to which he replied no. The premises were searched and a sleeve of Richmond King Size branded cigarettes, containing 200 cigarettes, was found in a box of umbrellas in the back storeroom. Mr Ali was asked to explain them and suggested they were left over from the previous seizure of illicit cigarettes and that he had stopped selling them since then. However, a further 17 outer cartons from illicit cigarettes were also found in the store room. The products were later confirmed as counterfeit. Mr Ali admitted he had been selling illicit cigarettes daily and had continued to do so since trading standards last raided his shop in June 2019. Officers identified £1,694.22 of cash on the premises and this was seized by trading standards as proceeds of crime and has since been forfeited. Mr Ali failed to attend two interviews to explain his actions and made no contact with trading standards. Speaking after the case, Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, praised members of the public who had alerted trading standards: Andrea Crossfield, of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said: Salford City Council supports The Keep it Out campaign, which reveals the true cost of ‘cheap’ illegal tobacco, including links to organised crime and the devastating impact smoking has on people’s health. The campaign is being run by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, in collaboration with local authority trading standards teams and enforcement partners in the north. To find out more, visit keep-it-out.co.uk The sale of illegal tobacco can be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or at keep-it-out.co.uk.

  8. 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 approach from a 'would-be' purchaser has been made but are quick to point out that as yet, there have been no decisions made and that Salford Reds have been asked in light of the approach to bring forwards their own proposals for purchasing the stadium. The former Salford City Stadium, now known as the AJ Bell Stadium was constructed in 2011/12 and has been the home of Salford's Rugby League side since opening. It was built by Salford City Council in partnership with co-owners Peel Land & Property who both have an equal 50-50 stake in CosCos, the management company that oversees the stadium. Salford's Devils moved to the new stadium after quitting their former home 'The Willows' in Weaste. Since then the club has had its ups and downs but in recent years they have gone from strength to strength on the pitch with an impressive win of 'The Million Pound Game' and narrowly losing in the grand final to St Helens in 2019. In order for a sale of the stadium to take place it would have to be agreed by all parties. Salford Council has confirmed it will be seeking assurances for commitments for the club should any sale take place. The clubs behind the bid have not yet been named but both Salford FC and Sale Sharks have been mentioned as potential purchasers online, however we must stress that at this time this is just speculation and online rumour, it is not definite. The Sharks have made a previous bid for the stadium back in 2017 when owner Simon Orange said they had made an offer above what they thinks it is worth. Salford Deputy Mayor, John Merry referred to the offer as being “unacceptable”. A spokesperson from Salford City Council said:
  9. 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 bridge, This is a fascinating area with two Grade One Listed Structures, and two Grade Two Listed Structures, hidden graveyards, terraced houses dating from 1820's, wildlife including Canadian Geese even the chip shop Laurel Hardy visited in 1947! what more could you ask for? I could ask Peel Holdings to please, please repair the damage to the Barton Road Swing Bridge, as it is an eyesore, before it is too late. I could ask Salford Council to consider using the area when tidied up to be a heritage/ tourist attraction, it would be off huge interest to canal boat enthusiasts, lovers of architectural engineering, historians, wildlife and would bring money into the area. So, hope you enjoy the video and find something of interest in it.
  10. 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 pedestrianizing parts of the A6 to create a boulevard. The joint strategy between Salford and Manchester is hoped to see up to 90% of peak time commutes to be made on foot, cycle, bus and trains as infrastructure improvements are made to help reduce the carbon footprint of the sister city centres and create better transport links. However some have suggested that this is just another example of Manchester's continuing encroachment into Salford and a blurring of the line as to where each city starts and ends. Others have suggested that it would be unwise to be putting the cities 'eggs' into the public transport basket and ask if it is truly a viable way forward as the local reduction in footfall on public transport over the past year due to Covid has demonstrated huge flaws in the thinking. The Metrolink itself has struggled with dwindling numbers due to lockdown and as we face an uncertain future with mutations of the coronavirus a continued threat, it is only wise to consider the possibility of a repeat of 2020 at some point ahead. Additionally it has been noted that as more people opt to work from home and with some companies seemingly championing the benefits it brings, some members of the public are questioning if the strategy has been thought out properly. A recent consultation resulted in 2,425 responses from the public but it was noted that just 5% of those who responded actually lived within Salford. Regardless, Salford Crescent is set to play a huge role in the development around the University campus and is being seen as a focal point for growthin the city, and so it is hoped the addition of a Metrolink route will bring benefits to the area which already boasts rail and bus connectivity. The new route is being suggested as an important part of the joint strategy in the coming years and Labours Tracy Kelly, Salford's statutory deputy city mayor, has welcomed the new transport strategy. Speaking at the meeting on Monday, she told the audience: Photos: English Cities Fund and SM
  11. 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 consider issues such as infrastructure, accessibility, public transport and green space as part of the process. The sale follows land bought by Greene King and Aldi with a number of other potential sales being discussed on the remaining 25 acres of development land. The news indicates the strong market interest in the location and will, when all sales are completed, deliver investment in excess of £100 million, an estimated 800 jobs and business rates income each year of around £2million. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Not all have been so upbeat about the development news as the Mayor, with some local residents taking to social media to claim that the siting of warehouses upon the land signals the end of a now failed dream to turn the area into a thriving retail park with the formerly named Salford City Stadium as the focal point, as just two plots were sold to Aldi for a supermarket and Greene King which built the Barley Farm public house on land close to the stadium. A covenant that was in place which restricted the use has been pretty much torn up, as despite years of attempting to sell the land, the market for retail units in the area was clearly just not there. The land is located within distance of one of Europe's largest shopping centres (The Trafford Centre) as well as just a short car ride to an already established shopping centre just a motorway junction away. A number of potential sales have been mooted by local Salford councillors over the years but they ultimately failed to materialise into anything significant. Meanwhile others commenters on social media said that realistically speaking it is better to find some use for the land which can start to benefit Salford than to leave it vacant for potentially many more years to come. The plots are now set to be repurposed as industrial and employment space. James Whittaker, Executive Director for Development at Peel L&P said:
  12. 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 and it is expected that it will continue to affect the councils budget for at least a further three years, adding more misery and uncertainty to an increasingly painful future. In order to achieve a balanced budget position for 2021/22 the council had to address a £10.9m funding gap. This gap has been driven by the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and changes that have affected funding streams such as the New Homes Bonus. The gap is to be covered by a combination of previously approved savings, use of non-recurring funds and reserves. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Councillor Bill Hinds, Lead Member for Finance and Support Services said: The Online meeting will be live steamed from 9:30am tomorrow morning (Weds 24th Feb) via the following link: https://salford.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/545921
  13. 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 chains of office and I hope to be able to get out and about to meet people later this year as more people are vaccinated and we beat the Coronavirus pandemic,” said Councillor Mullen. After leaving St Albert’s RC High School in 1976 Councillor Mullen became an apprentice glazer before switching trades and qualifying as a welder. In 1984, newly married to Michelle and with the arrival of their first son Kelvin, he taught himself computer programming and completed a BTEC at Worsley College. Councillor Mullen, said: From there he went on to work for an American credit company regularly travelling to America, Japan and Europe and complete a degree in computer science and professional qualifications with the British Computer Society. He later became self-employed and worked for the Office of National Statistics, Sainsbury’s, Walmart before semi-retiring last year. Councillor Mullen joined the Labour party in 2001 to campaign for better health services and has represented Barton ward since 2004. In his spare time Councillor Mullen enjoys travelling, watching Star Trek and other sci-fi programmes and playing computer games and programming Alexa with his grandson Jack.
  14. 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 social rent, 127 for affordable rent, 52 to the private rented sector and 50 will be sold. They will provide a quality and sustainable range of house types and size to meet local needs. And the ambition doesn’t stop there, in total, thousands of extra new units could be provided by Salford City Council in the next ten years with the vast majority managed by Dérive - if access to funding is successful. Works on 104 of the homes available for social rent will start in February 2021. Construction will start at Clifton Green in Pendlebury as well as Brassington Avenue and Ryall Avenue which are both in Ordsall. The developments are made up of 30 homes and 99 apartments including the provision of wheelchair friendly homes at all sites. Planning permission was approved for all the developments in October 2020 and all homes will be constructed based on a fabric first low carbon/low energy approach which the council hopes will encourage other housing developers to follow its environmental lead. The council also plans to buy 25 homes at a development on Kara Street, Langworthy through its own housing company Dérive. These affordable homes will be made available for local people at social rent levels and consist of one bedroomed apartments, as well as two and three bedroomed houses. The approval of the development case by the City Mayor also gave full approval for 66 homes at the former St Lukes Primary School in Weaste and 45 homes at the former Irwell Valley School in Irwell Riverside. The two schemes will deliver 111 homes of which 69 will be owned by community led organisations Inspiring Communities Housing and the Broughton Trust with whom the City Mayor has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding. They will consist of one and two bedroomed apartments as well as two, three and four bedroomed homes let at affordable rents. Both proposals are subject to planning approval which will be submitted in Spring 2021. Seddon has been appointed as the selected contractor to deliver the community led housing schemes and the Clifton Green, Brassington and Ryall Avenue developments. In addition, Longshaw Drive in Little Hulton will see 177 homes – made up of 132 houses and 45 apartments. These will be let at social, affordable rents, private rents and sale – to provide a range of housing options and choices. Homes England have kindly provided grant funding for the Clifton Green, Brassington Avenue ,Ryall Avenue and Kara Street properties and it is now intended to apply for further grant funding support on the remaining units. The intention is that, apart from a small number of units that will be for sale on the Longshaw and St Lukes sites, the homes will ultimately be taken under the control of Dérive – a housing company wholly owned by Salford City Council. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Councillor Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor and Lead Member for Housing at Salford City Council and a Director of Dérive, said: Duncan Williams, Divisional Director at Seddon said:

  17. 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 our human domain further into natures territory. As a result our greenbelt land has become increasingly under even more pressure at a time in which we are constantly told that we need to do all we can to prevent an impending natural disaster from global warming. In more recent years we have seen Salford Council make a huge push to create a healthier, cleaner, greener environment and as part of that push we have been lucky enough to see the creation of an amazing dual function wetlands in Kersal which not only acts as a much needed flood defence system but also as a home to countless numbers and species of water-fowl. Just recently City Mayor, Paul Dennett took to Twitter with great delight to show a photo of an Otter happily taking a dip in the once heavily polluted River Irwell. It shows just how far our once Dirty Old Town has come and how things have changed. That change has come via the hard work and efforts of many people. Things have changed because the attitude of both council and people has changed. We now have a dedicated local wildlife champion in Cadishead Councillor, Lewis Nelson, who over the years has relentlessly fought to protect the greenbelt of Salford, even when it has put him at odds at times with members of his own party members. More recently, Eccles Councillors along with MP for Salford and Eccles, Rebecca Long-Bailey, were instrumental in stopping plans for a septic tank on a patch of land at the three sister’s nature reserve in Elsmere Park. Salford Council and the R.A.I.D. group led by Councillor Karen Garrido, were successful in fighting Peel Land and Property through the courts, finally putting an end their plans to build homes on fields in the area which would have brought huge impacts to the local roads and schools, not to mention even more destruction of the green spaces which we love so much. There is always far more to do but when you look back at where we have come from, the difference is staggering. Our rivers teem with fish, our marshland plays host to both native bird species as well as those from across Europe and beyond, our local woodland home to huge populations of squirrels, rabbits and all manner of other woodland creatures. A far cry from the dirty smoke-filled days of our industrial past. Without a doubt, Salford is a much cleaner place to live and during the dark months of the Covid-19 pandemic they have played an equally vital role as being a place where local people can visit whilst maintaining their social distance, which has gone a long way to help maintain the mental health of many a Salford resident. So it is understandable that when it was recently revealed that the RHS Bridgewater has undertaken the culling of a number of Salford’s much coveted local deer population to limit potential damage to the plants, shrubs and tree’s on their 156 Acre site in Worsley, the local community was not too pleased to hear the news. It is understood that Councillor Lewis Nelson and Darren Ward confronted the RHS, raising concerns over the situation, which forced their hand in making a statement about it on their social media groups. In a release on their Facebook page, the RHS state that they could not herd, net or relocate them due to Covid-19 pandemic and the large number of people required to undertake the operation, so instead, the only other viable option was to ‘humanely’ cull what they claim to be a very small number of the animals which occupied the space outside of the deer enclosure. The statement in full is as follows: The statement was met with unprecedented condemnation by commenters to their Facebook page, with many pledging never to visit the RHS site when it opens its doors in 2021, others calling for protests with banners outside when they open. Within half an hour, a petition was set up which has already gained over 2100 signatures at the time of writing. Petition · Salford City Council, RHS, RSPCA, : Stop the RHS Bridgewater from further culling of roe deer at their site · Change.org Local councillors joined in by venting their own anger at what had happened. Walkden South Councillor, Richard Critchley posted: Whilst branch secretary of Salford Unison, Stephen North said: The cities Conservative councillors also waded in on the issue with a scathing press release condemning the culling of which they say they had no notification was to take place. Salford Mayor and our Wildlife Champion Lewis Nelson, jointly issued a statement this morning. Our city is heavily populated, and yes it is true that it still has its problems and there is much more to do, the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework has both councillors and public divided over its impact, but one thing is blatantly clear, in Salford we cherish what wildlife we have. Our own Salford Online Facebook page is evident of that as each day our members help us to showcase it and in these times of pandemics and social distancing it has never been appreciated more. From videos of friendly foxes playing with dogs in back gardens, to photos of Bartons now native colourful green Parakeets, to the bushy tailed Squirrels that live in the trees throughout our city. Wildlife has a home in Salford and it deserves to be protected. Our group and countless others are filled daily with Salford’s much-loved nature, we surround ourselves with it whenever we can, and although some of us have gardens of our own, it is surrounded by nature and the wild things that we feel at our best. For the RHS these deer shootings may have been seen as a solution but for many in Salford that solution was unpalatable. Some on social media have stated that culling in this way is part of population control and the RHS itself states that it has been done to protect the plants and fauna, but it should be remembered that those deer have lived peacefully on the site they now occupy for centuries with the name of their species embedded in the name of the area known as Roe Green. Salford is an urban city and our local council and rangers have done an amazing job of helping to reinstate a little of that nature for us all to enjoy. As one Facebook commenter said, "Why are they destroying our native wildlife and an established eco system to make way for a fabricated pay to view fake version of nature filled with none native plant species?" Floods of similar comments filled social media condemning the actions, with countless commenters pledging to boycott the gardens before it ever opens its doors to the public. These deer are a reminder that the true natural beauty of our City still clings on, a hark to its past and a symbol of its rise as a green and pleasant place to live once more. And so, the reaction from a nature loving public was predictable, they felt like a shot had been fired at them too and they are now responding in that unique way that Salfordians do when they come under fire. They stand up, dust themselves off and fight back harder. If the RHS learns one lesson from this it should be, never underestimate the collective power of the people of Salford, they can make you and just as easily break you should they feel the need. As part of the opening of the RHS, salford.media was planning on running a series of features to welcome the RHS into Salford and to showcase the site, however, under the current circumstances we feel that in all good faith we can no longer do that. Additionally we have removed any previous promotional materials and articles from our pages in protest. Instead, we have decided that in the coming weeks we intend to run a series of short videos and articles to showcase the true natural beauty of our City, from its urban landscapes to its parks and woodlands. A FREE gift of nature to us all to get out and explore. The deer and other wildlife in Salford can not speak but whilst we can use our voices, we will speak for them.
  18. 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 young people develop self-confidence and learn new skills, through art, music, sport and projects such as learning to refurbish bikes to supporting them with school attendance and behaviour difficulties or involvement in anti-social behaviour or crime. Youth workers also support young mums and dads and young people who are LGBTQ and have helped young people give back to their communities during the pandemic by assisting food banks, delivering food parcels and promoting acts of kindness. They also support the Youth MP, Youth Mayor and Youth Council which campaign for action on issues which matter to young people. Deputy City Mayor Councillor John Merry said: Click to Unsubscribe
  19. 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 Management Systems Limited after Highways officers approached them about doing something special to mark Remembrance Sunday. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: The council has two Armed Forces Champions, Councillor Margaret Morris and Councillor Barry Warner. They are asking people to consider donating to the Royal British Legion if they can to support the Poppy Appeal 2020 https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/. Shaun Hargreaves, commercial director at KAYS said: 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. The Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Charlie McIntyre, said this year’s remembrance would be different but no less dignified or heartfelt. KAYS, is a family-run road maintenance business based in Blackburn, working hard to support the North-West’s attempt to keep people safe and the country moving forward. Headed up by commercial director Shaun Hargreaves, KAYS has not only completed typical traffic management tasks with ardour, but the business was also one of the driving members behind the well-recognised series of ‘road rainbows’ and messages of thanks to the NHS - as loved and admired across North-West localities.

  22. 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 those who can least afford it. It is sad to say but thousands of children face losing what for them is the most important and sadly far too often, the only real meal they will get as family budgets are stretched and parents are faced with mounting bills and decreasing finances. With that in mind, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett has announced that families in receipt of free school meals can claim them during the half-term holiday next week. The quick decision was made following news that government has rejected Marcus Rashford's proposals to feed impoverished children over the holidays. Salford City Council has committed to providing the generous holiday hunger package to families during half-term and also over Christmas. Parents who claim free school meals should now take identification to their local gateway or hub and they will be given a free voucher. Residents can find the locations of gateways and Broughton Hub here https://www.salford.gov.uk/council-buildings-and-venues/gateway-centres/ Any parents with children in reception, year one or two and claiming benefits* - or in a non-mainstream school should also visit their nearest gateway or hub with identification to see if they are eligible to claim. City Mayor Paul Dennett said: To help finance the campaign, the Spirit of Salford Network plans to launch a fundraiser to find resources from the community. Spirit of Salford representative Councillor Sharmina August said: Cllr Paula Boshell, former Deputy Mayor and anti-poverty champion for the city has also made comment on the proposals. Cllr Boshell said: *The full criteria is: If your child is in reception, year 1 and/or year 2 and in receipt of free school meals, or attends a non-mainstream school, to claim Health Holiday shopping vouchers you must be in receipt of the following benefits: Please tick the benefit that applies: Income Support Income based job seekers allowance Income related Employment and Support Allowance OR Child Tax Credit (but not Working Tax Credit) and your annual income is £16,190 or less or; Guarantee Credit of Pension Credit or; Universal Credit ( if you applied after 31 March 2018 your earnings from work must be less than £616.67 in the previous assessment period.
  23. 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 removing from the streets - potentially to be used later as evidence for ongoing investigations. Other similar searches are expected to take place across the district sporadically over the next six weeks and officers are reassuring the public not to be alarmed if they see such activity taking place. The public are encouraged, as ever, to speak to high-visibility patrols with any concerns or information they may have with the knowledge that information will be treated with the strictest confidence. Since the inception of the Operation Naseby disruption hub in April, there have been 126 arrests, 109 vehicles seized and 48 house searches. GMP have also been working alongside partners in Salford City Council as part of Project Gulf, an initiative dedicated to tackling organised crime in the city with a view to deter reoffending as well as taking down criminal groups. Detective Inspector Rebecca Mills, of GMP's Salford division, said: Anyone with any information should contact police on 101 quoting Operation Naseby. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  24. 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 been closely involved in securing and delivering the £1.8BN West Yorkshire devolution deal, and leading major programmes of growth and regeneration across the region, focusing on job creation, skills and progression, housing delivery and city centre regeneration. Tom has pioneered approaches to inclusive economic growth throughout his 23 year career, alongside leading improvement programmes in children’s services, health and wellbeing partnerships, and many areas of public service reform. Tom was previously Director of Economy and Skills at Oldham Council in Greater Manchester, leading a wide range of the Council’s economic regeneration, skills and employment programmes and services, working across Greater Manchester, and was heavily involved in the devolution and city deal agenda. Tom is a former Deputy Chief Executive of the UK Learning and Work Institute, and his local government experience also includes high performing councils across the UK in Blackburn with Darwen and in the London Boroughs. Tom is married with two children. He is a Chartered Surveyor, sits on the board of the UK Institute of Economic Development and the Centre for local Economic Strategies (CLES), and is a National Spokesperson for Economic Prosperity and Housing for SOLACE, the UK local government CEOs professional body. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Tom Stannard said: Tom’s appointment is subject to ratification at a special meeting of the council on Wednesday.
  25. 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 Group and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. People aged over 65, under 65s with long-term health conditions, pregnant women and carers are offered the vaccination each year but, in some cases, less than half those who are eligible take it up. GPs have already begun contacting patients and vaccinations are also being offered through local pharmacies. Schoolchildren from reception to year seven are offered vaccinations via a nasal spray. The government has also said that if sufficient vaccine is available after the above priority groups have taken up their offer, it will be made available to 50 to 64-year olds. Councillor Gina Reynolds, lead member for adult services, health and wellbeing, said: Dr Jeremy Tankel, GP and CCG flu clinical lead, said: Dr Pete Turkington, Salford Royal Chief Officer and Medical Director, said: The Salford heroes are: Sam Barry, refuse collector. Salford was one of few places in the country to keep bin collections unchanged during early lockdown. Angela Eden and Foyzul Gani, health improvement workers. The team have taken their stop smoking, healthy weight and exercise advice online during the pandemic and are offering health checks to key workers. Lou Ross, Metrolink driver supervisor – keeping the city moving Lesley Fisher, volunteer, who founded and has run Dancing with Dementia for six years Dafydd Davies and Ellen Brawley, primary school teachers at St Phillips CE primary school, Salford Hollie Ward nurse practitioner, critical care unit, Salford Royal Hospital who has been caring for people with COVID-19 Marie Howard, community care assistant at Crossroads Care Dr Selvaraasan, GP at Orient Road Medical Practice Dr Adeyeye, GP at Pendleton Medical Centre Angela Goddard, lead practice nurse at Langworthy Medical Practice David Hartley, Salford police community support officer (PCSO) For more information and a list of pharmacies offering the flu jab please see www.salford.gov.uk/flu
