The Salford Star is now eleven years old and continues to do exactly what we said we would do when we produced our first print magazine in summer 2006 to give the community a voice, to hold public bodies up to account and to let people know what is going on in the city.

As ever, it's been hard, it's been weird, it's been fun and it's been rather skint because no-one wants to pay for the truth about the rich, powerful and petty rulers. As ever, Salford City Council won't speak to the Star, and neither will a host of other public and quasi-public bodies that don't want their affairs to be questioned.

The Star used to call their brand of democracy 'China on the Irwell' but that's becoming a bit creepy as China, Singapore and Hong Kong are literally marching into the city shoving up 'investment opportunities' everywhere you look.

The Salford Star is a fiercely independent community-centred publication that has no vested interests and no financial backing from anywhere. So we thank all our voluntary contributors writers, photographers, graphics gurus and technical whizzes - without whom our website would be rather empty.

We also rely on people in the community letting us know what is going down, because our articles are essentially grass roots driven, backed up with hard core investigative journalism.

Finally, we thank everyone from the community who has donated to the Star. This is our only form of income (apart from a couple of hundred quid a year from those horrid Google ads). The only other way we get any pennies is through our merchandise, which is now almost sold out...

...So we're having a summer clearance sale, with everything at knock down prices to clear the decks. And then we will possibly produce some new items, with new designs, for sale to help keep us going.

So we have...

1 XXL Black t-shirt star design 4 (as modelled by Catherine Tyldesley) (sold)

1 Small White t-shirt star design  4

1 Small Black t-shirt star design 4 (sold)


1 Large White t-shirt old Star banner design (silver) 4

1 Small Light Blue t-shirt old Star banner design (metallic purple) 4

1 Small Dark Grey t-shirt old Star banner design (silver) 4 (sold)

We also have ten Salford Star baby grows in various sizes with Salford Star banner in silver, gold and purple metallic - 2 each

Ten Salford star mugs 4 each - only two remaining!


All items are subject to post charges, which are whatever it costs us to post. If you live in Central Salford we'll deliver free.

It's all being done on first come, first serve so get in touch as soon as possible.

To everybody who plays a part in producing the articals, I thank you. Due to reading your magazine on a daily basis, my attitude has changed from having no interest in the local council, or indeed the Government and the decisions they make. To being watchful critical and actively making my feelings known in no uncertain terms. Thank you for giving me the confidence to speak out for what I believe in, send emails to MPs, Metro Mayor, City Mayor and councillors. I would urge everybody to email the Mayor, the councillors and the MPs and make them aware of your feelings. They are there to serve us the people, and not just do what they want to do. Happy Birthday Salford Star keep up the good work.

SALFORD TOWER BLOCK CLADDING CRISIS WILL COST MILLIONS OF POUNDS AND COULD TAKE YEARS TO SOLVE

Star date: 20th July 2017

RESIDENTS COULD 'VOTE WITH THEIR FEET' AND LEAVE ADMITS COUNCIL LEAD MEMBER

The Salford tower block cladding crisis could take years to sort out and will cost millions of pounds that the Council doesn't have, civic leaders told a full meeting of Salford City Council yesterday as they criticised the Tory Government's response post-Grenfell.

Meanwhile, as concrete boards are starting to be installed over exposed insulation on the blocks, Lead Member, Bill Hinds, said residents could start "voting with their feet" and leave their homes.

SALFORD CITY MAYOR TO FACE PROTESTS FROM HOMELESS AT HOUSING CONFERENCE

Star date: 19th July 2017

SALFORD LADS CLUB AFFORDABLE HOUSING CONFERENCE TO FACE PROTESTS

Tomorrow, 20th July, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, is to be the keynote speaker at a 'housing crisis' conference, hosted by the National Housing Federation and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation at Salford Lads Club.

Dennett will be setting out a new 'affordable housing vision' for Greater Manchester but homeless campaigners will be protesting and holding a procession from the Lads Club to a squat at Hulme Hippodrome. Salford City Council has been bulldozing affordable housing for the last decade and allowing developers to evade contributing to new affordable housing.

SALFORD BATTLE WITH PEEL HOLDINGS BEGINS AGAIN

Star date: 18th July 2017

PEEL PROPOSES 165 HOUSES IN WORSLEY GREENWAY AS PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO BROADOAK PREPARES TO COMMENCE

Salford's battle with Peel Holdings kicks off again this week when the company's planning application to build 165 houses at Broadoak South, in the Worsley Greenway, gets considered by councillors with a recommendation to refuse permission.

Anticipating this, Peel has tried to include an appeal for the 165 houses within a Public Inquiry into its whole Broadoak scheme which starts on 3rd October.

In a quiet suburb of Worsley, at the back of the White Horse pub, all hell has broken loose over a little footpath through a very small wood that a new owner had blocked off.

Here, there's been police involvement and petitions as residents fight to keep their public right of way open, plus a masked phantom fence avenger who has struck three times in the dead of night...

MORE GREATER MANCHESTER FIRE SERVICE CUTS COULD BE ON THE WAY

Star date: 17th July 2017

AS INQUIRY INTO MANCHESTER ARENA BOMB ATTACK BEGINS, MORE FIRE CUTS COULD BE IMPOSED

With a formal 'debrief', or inquiry, into the response to the Manchester Arena bomb attack due to begin - and with communities worried about fire safety in the wake of Grenfell Tower - behind the scenes Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, and his team are looking at 'redesigning' the fire and rescue service - which inevitably means cuts and possible mergers with other blue light services.

"I think there clearly are some, er, sensitivities around that and we'll have to take those into account but yes that is on the agenda" Deputy GM Mayor Beverly Hughes said recently.
