Schools and organisations across Salford have come together to offer an action-packed range of fun activities, and food, for four to 16-year-olds this summer. The activities, which range from baking and cookery to arts, crafts, sports and music will run across Salford from Monday 26 July to Thursday 19 August. The initiative is aimed to help keep young people in safe, fun and interactive environments during the long summer holidays. Councillor Sharmina August, Lead Member for Inclusive Economy, Anti-Poverty and Equalities at Salford City Council said: Many activities will be free but, if there is a small charge, the money will be used to help less fortunate Salford children and young people.

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 Road Monument, Albion Place War Memorial, Parr Fold Park War Memorial, St Paul’s War Memorial and St Mary’s Church War Memorial. Councillor Sharmina August Executive Support Member for Equalities, Communities and Social Impact at Salford City Council said: Councillor Morris said: Councillor Warner added:
The city has formally backed the campaign which aims to make good, nutritious food a legal right for all its citizens. The backing from Salford was announced at Greater Manchester Combined Authority Meeting on Friday 12 February. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett will now be sending a letter to the government, indicating the need for drastic change to the National Food Strategy, and the importance of introducing a new policy which includes the goals of the Right to Food campaign. Salford City Council joins other councils across the country who are continuing to lobby for change. Paul Dennett, the City Mayor of Salford, said: Councillor Sharmina August, Executive Support Member for Equalities, Communities and Social Impact at Salford City Council said:
United Utilities proposals to place a storm tank on an area of land at the Three Sisters nature reserve have been turned down by a city planning panel yesterday (15th October). Representatives from the Ellesmere Park Residents Association made an impassioned plea to save the beloved site of biological importance and diversity, stating the devastating impact the work would have on local wildlife and fauna. They were backed by local councillors Sharmina August and Mike McCusker alongside Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey who gave strong arguments in objection to the application. Councillor McCusker motioned to refuse the application which was quickly seconded by newly appointed Salford Wildlife Champion, Lewis Nelson. The voted ended almost unanimously with 9 for refusal and just one abstention. It is hoped that the Utilities company will take this show of support as an indication to seek alternative proposals for the area, However, UU can chose to appeal the decision and even ignore it completely due to having a national mandate for large infrastructure projects. We understand that the Council is seeking a tree protection order as a safeguard.
