  1. Litter and fly tipping has become a problem nationwide and not only in Salford but there are good people out there who take the time and put in the effort to make a difference in their communities. Earlier in the month we awarded one such gentleman and beloved member of his community, 'Fred', our community champion award for the phenomenal work he had done towards maintaining his own 'patch' in Barton. Not too long afterwards we covered another story in which local volunteers managed to recover stolen mail that had been ditched in woodland during in a litter pick in Walkden. So it always a fantastic thing to see Salford residents being praised for their support in tackling litter and we agree that they should be urged to carry on after lockdown restrictions ease. More than 300 community groups have turned out in the last year to support the council in cleaning up the city. Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, praised the volunteers and said he hoped they would continue in the future. He said: In 2019/20 1000 people were given fixed penalty notices or fines totalling £100,000 for littering or fly tipping.

  2. Members of the grassroots movement in Eccles have continued to strive for Northern England’s communities and work towards a greener transport future, despite the pandemic. Figures from Community Rail Network’s Community Rail in the North briefing – sponsored by Rail Delivery Group - (being launched today, 24 March) highlight that over 3,000 volunteers give over 140,000 hours annually, valued at £11.7 million, to improve social inclusion and wellbeing, promote sustainable and healthy travel, and support economic development, in their local area. Working with the North’s 20 community rail partnerships and 350 station groups, they engage local people with their railways and stations, working with train operators, local authorities, and other partners. Activities include: volunteering, community gardening and biodiversity projects at stations; community arts and heritage projects; work with rail industry partners towards improvements and integration, such as shelters, signage, pedestrian and cyclist access; and events, workshops and activities to promote sustainable travel, bring people together, and celebrate the local community. Community rail is now looking forward to playing a pivotal role in building back better from Covid, and helping our railways to be a vital component of a greener, more inclusive way forward as part of a ‘green recovery’. In Eccles, FRECCLES works to work with the Council and rail industry to improve the Station environment and improve the service that is offered to passengers. Commenting on the importance of the community rail movement in the North of England, Jools Townsend, chief executive of Community Rail Network said: FRECCLES are keen to resume activities post-Covid and would welcome anyone who would be keen to help us add value to the community.
