ECCLES CENTRE TO BENEFIT FROM SKINNER FUNDRAISER

Dennis Skinner and Friends
Friday 20th April from 6:30pm
Moston Miners Community Arts Centre £20

Dennis Skinner, MP and 'Beast of Bolsover', appears for a live Q and A this week at a fundraiser for the Eccles based Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre. There's also a showing of his film and live acts. Interestingly, Skinner began his political career as editor of a paper questioning the local council.

Dennis Skinner is the latest icon of the left to show support for the Eccles based Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre (SUCRC), which is desperately trying to raise funds to cover huge cuts in its budget.

Following the successful Ken Loach evening at the Moston Miners Centre recently which raised over £6,000, Dennis Skinner appears within the same format Ė a showing of his film, The Beast of Bolsover, followed by a live Q and A session. Plus speakers and live acts, including comedian Smug Roberts, The Northern Ramblers, From Carbon and Argh Kid. Paula Barker NW Unison and
Salford MP Rebecca Long Bailey are also supporting the event and speaking.

The outspoken MP actually started his political career as a councillor in Clay Cross, and editor of the Clay Cross Clarion, which had four pages... "We asked difficult questions of the council and printed the answers under the headline, The Truth" he recalls in his autobiography. Good job he wasn't doing it in Salford Ė he'd get no answers!

Meanwhile, Skinner writes that, once an MP, he wasn't frightened of stirring it, famously opposing the Blair and Brown Labour Party Government on certain issues...

"I was prepared to vote against legislation I believed ran contrary to the interests of the working people and the principles of the Labour Party: academy schools, NHS foundation trusts, privatisation, PFI, up to 28 days detention without charge, welfare cuts and every Common Market treaty..." he writes.

Find out Dennis Skinner's views on current Corbyn policy at the Q and A, plus anything else that's vital to know in what should be a night not to be skipped.

"It's so good to have the support of so many good and famous people who come from the working class" says Alec McFadden, SUCRC Manager "All understand just how bad the Tory Government benefit system is."

The Centre represents and helps people who have problems with benefits, sanctions, work issues, homelessness and more...

"The income of our fighting centre has been cut by fifty per cent but we fight on, defending the interests of our vulnerable clients" McFadden adds "The money raised next Friday evening will help ensure that the Centre's vital role continues..."

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
