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 – 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 – 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..."

AFTER LONG BITTER FIGHT, THE GRANGE SHUTS

After years of campaigning and protests, The Grange home for children with severe complex needs finally shut yesterday, after the last resident was shunted out of the city.

"Salford Council should be ashamed of themselves for getting rid of such a valuable facility" says Rebecca Howarth, parent and Save The Grange Again campaigner "We have fought the Council for nearly two years in a bid to keep the care home open but unfortunately we have reached the end of the road."

SALFORD THEATRE FACADES SAVED BUT BUILDING TO BE ALMOST DEMOLISHED

Planning has now been submitted for the Grade II listed Crown Theatre in Eccles, which proposes to save the facades of the building and some stairs and walls, while demolishing the rest.

The application seeks to convert the site for 82 market apartments, with no affordable housing or Section 106 payments, with a loss to the city of over £200,000 - and with an estimated profit for the developer of over £2million.
