Star date: 8th November 2018

SALFORD GREAT AND GOOD SEE SOUP KITCHEN SET UP ON BROADWALK

Last night, as the Ceremonial Mayor, police chiefs and other worthies filed into St Paul's Church near Salford Precinct for a World War 1 remembrance service, outside a soup kitchen and No More Deaths On Our Streets banner was erected by the Joint Veteran Alliance (JVA) to respectfully remind them of the plight of modern day homeless veterans.

The beautiful old St Paul's Church on the Broadwalk near Salford Precinct was the setting last night for a World War 1 remembrance service, attended by the Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, police chiefs and other 'great and good'...

...Outside, however, was a soup kitchen, an effigy of a homeless person and a placard reading No More Deaths On Our Streets, set up by the Joint Veteran Alliance, or JVA...

"We normally do a soup kitchen outside Pendleton Church otherwise known as St Thomas but there is a meeting at St Paul's so I decided that my normal team would carry on distributing food and I would bring a small team here to highlight the forgotten homeless, the veterans" said JVA's Dawne Sheldrick-Keating.

"While Andy Burnham has set up a building in Manchester, I'm trying to stop Salford statistics migrating into Manchester statistics and was interacting earlier this year with Salford Mayor Paul Dennett to get land, a building and support" she added.

"I want him to honour what he said to me when I asked him in a conversation to help" she explained "I said I was going to hire some containers and he said, 'Do not hire any containers, I will get them donated', and I am still waiting. I've got camp beds ready to put in a unit but I'm just not getting anywhere. So tonight is to highlight the plight of modern day veterans..."


* Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett does not respond to requests for comments from the Salford Star so we can't ask him about his promise.

PGJ , there is only one major ill in our city, and that is our council. I don't say that because I am anti Labour, as there are many Labour councils up and down the country that do a good job for their people. It is just the clowns we have here that do daft things. So there you have it.

Bob the regular, an expert in Housing Law too. Impressive. Is there no ends to your expertise? You have a talent in just about every aspect of law, local government, building construction and materials, transport, central government, finance, regulatory bodies, to name but a few. Anyone who reads this online publication and reads your constant messages will agree that you often surprise with the breadth of your knowledge. They will no doubt wonder, like I do, why you have not put this knowledge to better use, you could no doubt rid the world of so many ills,

There are many former military people who are without a home. It used to be the law that those who had left service had to be given highest priority in the housing list. Sadly this is no longer the case, and many councils find other people more higher priority than the people that have served in the military. I suspect ours is one of them. We should remember that because these people volunteer for service, and put their lives at risk, that is the reason we do not have conscription in this country. We should therefore give a little back to these people and put a roof over their heads when they leave,it's the least we can do.
