Coeliac disease is a serious autoimmune condition caused by a reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. And the only treatment available for people who suffer is to avoid all foods with these ingredients.

The number of people diagnosed as coeliacs is growing to one in 100, and, as such, the Government has stopped giving out gluten-free bread and flour on prescription, which has created a whole extra private market for such products.

Supermarkets now have whole aisles full of everything from ready meals to cakes, to cereals, and restaurants are starting to have gluten free options on the menu.

Coeliac UK, the largest independent charity for people living gluten free, will be holding its first ever gluten free food festival on Saturday 24th June at the AJ Bell Stadium, with free entry*

There will be over forty stalls and visitors will have the chance to sample and buy a whole range of gluten free food and drink from local and national producers, and see new products.

People will also be able to book a free face-to-face meeting with a registered dietitian, visit the Coeliac UK Hub, listen to specialist talks led by leading Gastroenterologist Professor David Sanders and watch a range of cookery demonstrations hosted by Coeliac UK's Home Economist. The day will also include a round up from Coeliac UK and their annual general meeting.

Special guest is TV presenter, Chris Bavin, who will be doing a cookery demonstration...

"My wife has coeliac disease" he says "And so I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting to people who are coming along on the day, and will no doubt  pick up ideas of new products and tips to take back home."

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".
