SALFORD COMMUNITY PUBLIC MEETING OPPOSING HOUSING IN BUILE HILL PARK
 

Star date: 10th June 2018

COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVES TO PARK HOUSES...

Buile Hill Park Public Meeting
Tuesday 12th June 7:30pm
Height Methodist Community Church

A public meeting is being held this Tuesday at the Methodist Church in Irlams o' th' Height to air opposition to Salford Council's proposal for houses to be built in Buile Hill Park as part of a restoration deal for the grade 2 listed Mansion.

Full details here...


After a stormy Claremont and Weaste Community Committee recently, when Salford Council officers didn't satisfy residents' concerns over the possibility of houses being built in Buile Hill Park, a further public meeting is taking place this Tuesday 12th June at the Height Methodist Church at 7:30pm.

It follows a proposal from Salford City Council for Salford Red Devils Foundation and developer Capital and Centric to get together via a Memorandum of Understanding to fund restoration of the empty Grade 2 listed Mansion in Buile Hill Park via some development of the depot area, which could involve building houses (for a full background see previous Salford Star article Ė click here).

So far, over 2,700 people have signed a petition to 'Stop Salford Council building houses in Buile Hill Park, before it is too late'*...

"This will be a good opportunity to put forward your ideas for community uses for the Mansion and outbuildings" says former councillor Mary Ferrer, who is hosting the meeting.

"It's to get a plan of action up and running, also ideas for what we would like to see within the Mansion, plus the main problem; funding" she explains "So Salford folk, it's now up to us to stop this total madness happening. But we also need to hopefully work with the Council so we all win..."

At the meeting there will be paper copies of the petition and an agenda that includes looking at whether the Council has a policy on people living in parks, an open forum for people to air their views and the formation of a working group to take forward any plans decided.

Buile Hill Park Public Meeting
Tuesday 12th June 7:30pm
Height Methodist Community Church
King Street, M6 7GY

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.
