Star date: 31st December 2018

COUNCIL WINS REAL DIGITAL COUNCIL OF THE YEAR AWARD

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 12th annual Salford Star Mary Burns Awards, which are given out to honour the most deserving individuals and organisations in the city for their stupid statements, dodgy dealings and iffy activities over the past twelve months.

Salford Council has prided itself on winning the 2018 Digital Leaders Digital Council of the Year Award but Salford Star has its own Real Digital Council of the Year Award for its pathetic My City Salford website. So, ladies and gentlemen, scratch your Googles and give it up for the winner...

REAL DIGITAL COUNCIL OF THE YEAR AWARD

Goes To...

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Ladies and gentlemen, this year Salford Council won the Digital Leaders Council of the Year Award for its, er, digital prowess. Now get the Salford Star Mary Burns Award for the Real Digital Council of the Year...given out for, er, the opposite of digital prowess.

Yes, Salford City Council splashed £180,000 of Andy Burnham's Greater Manchester Transformation Fund on a website called My City Salford, described as a "21st century digital neighbourhood", and a "groundbreaking citizen-centric project"...

The contract for the site's development was handed to The Landing, a private company owned by Salford Council, and the result was...underwhelming in the extreme.

The site, half of which is out of date and derelict, was launched in October 2017 and a year later, in September 2018, had just 1,738 unique users, or an average of just 58 people per day looking at it, a Salford Star Freedom of Information request revealed (see here).

Together with another website called My City Health, developed at a cost of £118,000 of public money, almost £300,000 has been splashed on websites that have not exactly set the digital world on fire.

So, ladies and gentlemen, ask 'What the 'ell were the judges of the Digital Leaders Council of the Year Award thinking?', and slow handclap as the social media flop wilts in the winter of its own content for the winner of the Salford Star Mary Burns Award for the Real Digital Council of the Year..

Salford City Council!!!

Is what Salford Labour council doing incompetence or just plain downright corruption, at the ballot box Salford people don’t seem to think so, the blind and the fool are always the last to to wake up to what is going on. This is just plain and simple ethnic cleansing of Salford people by this labour council, just look at what happened to the residents of langworthy and Broughton, they stuck their heads in the sand and woke up when it was to late.

Bob [Holt]. Please don't insult circus clowns. They are immensely skilled performers who bring pleasure to many. Someting you couldn't say about the 'idle wasters at the Salford Madhouse'.

The pathetic idle wasters at the Salford Madhouse really need to get their act together . Admittedly an impossible task after so many years of blatant incompetence . A new council logo should be designed for the new year , and one that truly reflects the competence of these idiots . I would suggest that a circus clown riding a collapsing bicycle in ever decreasing circles would be perfect .

TOOTHBRUSHES AND SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS

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.

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

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".

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".
