"You don't need a bull hook to control an elephant. You can guide an elephant with love... And bananas..." Lek Chailert, founder of Save Elephant Foundation
 
World-renowned elephant conservationist, Saengduean Lek Chailert, is coming to Manchester for one of only four UK screenings of the acclaimed documentary Love and Bananas which aims to raise awareness of the plight of the Asian elephant.

Lek, the founder of the Save Elephant Foundation, has devoted her life to the conservation of this endangered species and, since 1996, has rescued two hundred distressed elephants in Thailand and neighbouring countries, winning many awards including being invited to Washington by Hillary Clinton in 2010 to be honoured as one of six Women Heroes of Global Conservation.

This will be Lek's first visit to Manchester and she will take part in a Q&A, following the screening of the documentary on Wednesday 7th November at Federation House.

The film, by American documentary maker Ashley Bell, tells the story of Lek's life and follows her and her team as they travel 480 miles across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old partially blind trekking elephant, and bring her to freedom.

Love and Bananas is being screened at Federation House in Manchester city centre by Prestwich Community Cinema after a Salford resident who had volunteered at Lek's sanctuary, Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, contacted the organisers and asked for help to bring the film to a local audience. All proceeds from the night will be given to the Save Elephant Foundation.


Love and Bananas
Wednesday 7th November - doors open 7pm for 7:30pm start. Q&A at 9pm.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
