EX PUPILS OF RUTH FROW SOUGHT FOR THIRTY YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF SALFORD LIBRARY

November will see the thirtieth anniversary of Salford Working Class Movement Library and there will be a special event to celebrate founders Ruth and Eddie Frow. Ruth was a teacher in Ardwick and Wythenshawe, and organisers are trying to trace ex-pupils of hers to take part in the event.

Through the Working Class Movement Library, Ruth Frow taught many people many things. A co-founder of the Library, along with husband Eddie, she was instrumental in helping the Salford Star when it was first published and was always there for anyone, giving advice and helping people find documents, books and photos held in the archives of the unique building.

November marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Working Class Movement Library moving into Jubilee House on The Crescent in Salford, and as part of the anniversary, on 11th November, there's going to be an event to recognise the contribution of Ruth and Eddie Frow.

As well as building the incredible archive of the Library, Ruth was also previously a teacher in schools in Ardwick and Wythenshawe from the 1950s to 1970s, and organisers are trying to trace ex-pupils who were taught by Ruth, to take part in the celebrations.

If you were one of Ruth's pupils and have fond memories of her as your teacher, please contact Bernadette Hyland at lipsticksocialist636@gmail.com or drop her a line c/o Working Class Movement Library, The Crescent, Salford, M5 4WX

COURT RULES SALFORD MAN WRONGLY EVICTED BY SALIX HOMES AFTER HE SPENT NINE MONTHS ON THE STREETS

Star date: 22n June 2018

HE LOST HIS HOUSE, HIS JOB AND ALMOST HIS LIFE WHEN SALIX EVICTED HIM AND BINNED ALL HIS PERSONAL POSSESSIONS

"The current proceedings should never have been brought" Deputy District Judge Thexton

A judge has ruled that Salix Homes was wrong to have evicted tenant Graciano Mantato last September. Since then Graciano has been homeless, living on and off the streets, lost his job and his health, and has considered taking his own life.

Now Graciano is back in his house in Ordsall – except that the place has been stripped bare and all his personal possessions, including photos and clothes, have been put in the bin. The judge also slammed Salix staff for use of "inappropriate language" when referring to Graciano.

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes.
