  1. Young people’s positive contribution to Salford will be recognised and celebrated as part of International Youth Day next week (from Monday August 9). And, one of the highlights of the week is the launch of a new youth centre, The Den, in Walkden which will be officially opened by the Ceremonial Mayor of Salford Councillor John Mullen on Thursday August 12. Salford has joined in the world-wide celebrations held on and around August 12 every year for the last 10 years and took events online last summer to make sure young people didn’t completely miss out. This year’s theme is “Dream big, achieve big” and plans are being drawn up for films, murals, music, art projects, celebration meals and picnics, confidence boosting workshops and fun such as trampolining and making dream catchers. Former members of the Youth Council will also be taking part in a “where are they now?” session to show their achievements since being members. Councillor Jim Cammell, lead member for children’s and young people’s services, said: Councillor Mullen added:

  6. Greggs have announced the closure of the Walkden branch of its popular bakery which will no doubt come as sad news to some in the area. The store which operates out of Unit 76 in the Elllesmere Shopping Centre closed its shutters for good earlier in the month. There was a branch across the border in neighbouring Farnworth but that closed in 2019. This now means that the closest branch is now located in Swinton. The Bakers saw their first loses in over 36 years in 2020 due to the Covid crisis and does not expect to return to profit until around 2022 at the earliest. In the last year alone the company have had to make 820 job cuts due to the impact and pressures of lockdown. Chief executive Roger Whiteside said: The salford.media team have entered a period of mourning and have asked for their privacy to be respected at this sad time.
  7. Santander has announced that it is to close 111 branches up and down the country by the end of August this year and two branches in Salford are facing the axe. The Spanish-owned money lender said that the 'majority' of branches facing closure were under three miles from another Santander branch, with the furthest being just five miles away. It said that all of the 111 closing branches were within half a mile of at least two free-to-use cash machines. Branches in Swinton and Walkden are just two of the swathes being axed. The branch in Swinton is set to close on the 1st of July , whilst the Walkden branch is set closure even earlier on the 24th of June. The Eccles branch based on the local shopping precinct was closed back in March 2018, whilst the branch located within the University of Salford, Manchester, Lady Hale Building was permanently closed after a temporary closure in March 2020. This effectively leaves Salford without it's own branch of the bank with closest now being over the City border in neighbouring Manchester.
  8. The selection of a Jury for the trial of two Salford men for the murder of Walkden mum Michelle Pearson is underway with the case against them set to open at Manchester Crown Court in the morning. Zak Bolland, 26, and David Worrall, 28, have both denied murdering Michelle Pearson, despite already having previously been found guilty of the murder of four children as the result of a fire they set back in November 2017 as the family slept in their Walkden home. Last week, Courtney Brierley aged 23, Plead guilty to the manslaughter of Michelle during an appearance via video link from HMP Send, Ripley, Surrey. Ms Pearson died in August 2019 after a mammoth struggle with her injuries sustained during the fire, almost a year after the flames tore through her Walkden home killing four of her young children. The trial is set to last at least three weeks.
  9. During a litter pick earlier today, our very own 'Handy' Hilary Curran along with her friend and BMHA group member Wendy Francis, local resident Janet Hesford and Hilary's nephew Harry, came across three distinctive bright red Royal Mail bags hidden in the undergrowth close to where the busses turn at the top end of Mossfield Road in Swinton. Hilary, a moderator on our Salford Nature group, is well known for getting stuck in and getting her hands dirty to clean up the cities beauty spots. She also runs her own I Love Buile Hill Park group on Facebook which was set up for people to share memories and photos of the park. Hilary said: The mail which looks to have been stolen and ditched at some point before valentines day earlier this year, has addresses primarily from around the Walkden area. One of the trinkets found has the letters R&H surrounded by a love-heart with the date 08/03/20 inscribed upon it. Are you the mysterious R or H? If So then please get in touch. A secretive valentines card has the words 'Bee My Valentine' written on it followed by a '?', obviously meant for someone with a secret admirer perhaps? Other items included prescription specs and women's boots. Hilary said it is 'Sad that these people did not get their post and that she would like to see it delivered or returned to sender'. The pair are now going to 'deliver' the mail back to the Royal Mail in the hope that they can redeliver it to the intended recipients. Unfortunately, it seems that some of the mail has been damaged by the elements , whilst other letters seem to have been ripped open by what is assumed the thief as they riffled through envelopes looking for money and valuables. The pair say that they would like to see the items and trinkets found amongst the mail find their way to those they rightfully belong too. We will keep you 'Posted', on any developments.
  10. Police have made an arrest this afternoon after increasing patrols in the area due to reports of anti-social behaviour on the Linnyshaw Loop Line. A 27-year-old male from Wicheaver Crescent in Little Hulton was arrested after a member of the public alerted police after spotting a man who was firing an air weapon close to their location. Two PCSO's responded and were able to locate the man as he was bagging the weapon and attempting to walk away, however he refused to engage with them and so with concerns for his welfare and that of the wider public the officers followed the man who then became abusive and threatening towards them. At which point they requested support from their Neighbourhood Beat Officer colleagues. The man was later detained and arrested for a public order offence. All officers are said to have been safe and suffered no injuries during the pursuit and arrest. The individual remains in police custody for questioning. Police are urging anyone who witnesses such behaviour on the Loop Line to report any incidents or suspicious activity to them via 101 or their website and its Live Chat service. You are also able to report anonymous via Crimestoppers.
  11. Update: At around 6:06am a second power outage occurred. If you are waking up due to a missed early morning wakeup alarm, then it should be known that a brief overnight power disruption across some parts of Salford left house alarms ringing and circuit breakers tripped. The later being especially unfortunate if they happen to be the ones which control power to your fridge/freezer as was the case in my home. I would urge you to check that your fridges and freezers are powered as soon as you awake this morning so as to avoid food spoiling. Flickering lights and reset electrical devices were reported by people across a range of areas including Walkden, Little Hulton, Swinton and Eccles. It is unclear as to what caused the brief outage but this is just the latest in a number of similar instances to occur over a period of the last few months. In late January 79 properties were left without power and in the previous December, 90 homes were left in the dark for hours after disruptions to their supplies, to name a few.. Residents across Salford have reported power fluctuations and unstable supply for several months on our community Facebook Group - SalfordOnline. We have contacted Electricity Northwest for comment.
