A live musical extravaganza is happening on Sunday 18th November at the Eagle Inn, to try to help save the Salford Star which is rapidly running out of funds and is in danger of closing.

The benefit gig stars Kraut punk psych rockers, The Sandells, featuring Tim Lyons of the 'semi-legendary" local band The Things; the funky post-punk hard rock band, Four Candles, featuring Ian 'Moet Moss, best known as the charismatic front man of The Hamsters; the catchy, melodic pop-punk of Sticky; and Matthew Hopkins, a three piece who, in their own words do "original punk(ish)/folk(ish) cries of pain, joy and political ggggrrrr...". A perfect accompaniment to the Salford Star...

The night is being hosted by Red Rec Records with The Sandells and it's just 5 entry, in advance or on the door. More details on the bands to follow but in the meantime, stick it in your diary and go mosh for the Star...

"It's a great gesture, and we're thrilled that local musicians have really come to our aid with this gig and also the All Materials of Value Have Been Removed benefit CD" says Salford Star editor and co-founder Stephen Kingston "We can't thank them all enough.

"Independent journalism is vital to hold those in authority to account but the Star also does loads of articles on cultural events and bands that otherwise might not get any media attention" he adds "By supporting the Star you will also be helping to support the live music scene in the city and lots more besides..."

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.

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

'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".
