Star date: 15th April 2018

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.

Full details here...


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..."

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

Star date: 14th January 2019

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".
