A packed day is in store tomorrow, Saturday 1st October, at the Langworthy Cornerstone with a free 10/15 Party open to everyone.

The Salford community centre on the corner of Langworthy Road and Liverpool Street, is celebrating being open for 15 years, and community managed for the last ten years. During that time the Cornerstone has played host to an amazing variety of activities, from health sessions to media workshops, public meetings, music gigs and a steady stream of exhibitions, handing its walls over to local artists.

The Cornerstone also throws open its doors for regular free fun days for the community and tomorrow is no exception, with a `Past and Future' theme seeing exhibitions by Salford history societies, competitions, music, taster sessions for its activities and refreshments.

The day will also host clips from a film called 1599, which has been seven years in the making on meagre resources and centres on Margaret and Alexander Radclyffe, the 16th Century twins from Ordsall Hall who were right in the midst of the Tudor happenings.

Margaret was a maid of honour and leading light in the household of Queen Elizabeth 1, with an intriguing link to Shakespeare, while Alexander was off fighting the big battles of the times. The authentic docu-drama film follows former Corrie actress, Clare McGlinn, on a journey to find out more about the life and times of the twins, in which she meets local history experts and has a lute liaison with Peter Hook.

Meanwhile, the filmed research is suffused with theatrical dialogue between the Radclyffes, played by Anarosa de Eizaguirre and Charlie Allen-Wall, period music by Tudor composer, John Dowland, and narration by Christopher Eccleston.

"1599 has been an amazing project to have been involved in" says Claire Hunt, the film's writer and producer "It has been made by over one hundred volunteers, ranging from extras to audio post production specialists, literally on goodwill, including from all of our excellent locations, plus of course some local legends Christopher Eccleston and Peter Hook. 

"I am particularly proud that it showcases so many places of historic interest in the North West, ranging from Manchester Cathedral and Chetham's Library, to FAC 251 and the, sadly now defunct, GreenRoom theatre" she adds "There has been interest in it as an educational resource as it fits in well with a new 'Elizabethans' module being run by two out of the three exam boards (OCR and AQA) and I am currently working on an education pack to go with it. I think this would be an excellent use for it, as it was written as an educational piece."

The Cornerstone screening of clips from 1599 is followed by a Q&A session with Clare, conducted by centre manager John Phillips*.  

Meanwhile, upstairs a new exhibition of paintings by Alexandra Campbell will be launched that will be on display throughout October... "I have created eight oil portraits of individuals who are alternative and have tattoos" she explains "The point is to show that we are all the same underneath our skin."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.
