Help Needed

We are in the process of setting up a Salford Young Greens and we need help from any one who is studying at Salford University.If you could help can you make contact on the site.

We are also looking at setting up a Salford Green LGBA same question if any one can help or advise could you contact me on the web.

All contact details will be kept confidential.

Have we the only Green Party in the country opposed to traffic calming and in favour of unfettered access for the car ? Just in off our Council leader.

Answer John the plan if it had been thought through,and perhaps if you would have sought comment from more than the few residents on Chapel street it would have worked well.Instead we have grid lock, frustration, and local business that at this time are suffering.We are facing the same issues we faced with the congestion charging.And to be honest i could use the same arguments i used when i sat with the Liberal Democrats. Of course your idea would get support from the Green party but there is always a but.We would have asked  do you have relief roads planned and clearly marked to take any short term strain. What alternatives are we offering the public in regards to alternative  transport, have we reduced  the bus rates to entice people to change.Are the Buses that will take the main business fit for purpose IE ENVIRONMENTALY FRENDLY? will we be looking at changes in their fuel.What are the long term plans for the area,  do we have a business plan? Job creation,further growth if the plan develops will there be no long term effects on the residents , will there be security in there tenancy and we would not be creating a Langworthy road where social cleansing as taken place. In realty only the rich can live there.John we will fight for and support Green Projects but not at any cost. PS john did you get the bus in to Manchester or Drive? You see we may be green but we do Believe that people have a choice.

Just thought i would post these comments from Twitter between My self and our Council Leader,as you my have read i have been arguing that the Chapel Street area is turning in to a Car Park and delaying traffic in to Manchester. I suggest you read the rest.

no you just do not go down Chapel St

I really think this is turning in to a fiasco, just out of interest i wonder what our air quality tests will reveal? we hope to get test on Chapel street and Liverpool road areas soon,i am trying to see if any one could help direct us to any research on Bronchial asthma within the  area. If you could help or guide us please drop us a line. I wonder which route our leader uses in to Manchester??

I have just received a phone call from a parent over this Telegraph article and was asked for my view.To be honest if i see one more issue relating to this a will scream.These experts need to be put back into what ever hole they crawled out of and sealed in.

Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says

Teachers should censor the toy box to replace witches’ black hats with a pink ones and dress fairies in darker shades, according to a consultant who has issued advice to local authorities.

Wizard of Oz film still: Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says

From the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz to Meg, the good witch from the Meg and Mog children’s books, witches have always dressed in black.

But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.

Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.

This rubbish breeds  racism it does not cure it,so lets get it together and remember we are all the damn same no matter what colour our skin is.

This got me thinking

Up to 10 jobs are understood to be at risk at a flagship school – less than a year before it moves to a new £25m site near MediaCityUK.

Oasis Academy held a ‘topping out’ ceremony to celebrate the progress of the new school building in Ordsall on Tuesday.

But shocked staff at the specialist media college, currently based on Prestwood Road, have been warned redundancies could be necessary as part of a cost-cutting review.

A 30-day consultation period, including a call for voluntary redundancy applications, is due to end on October 6.

First thoughts of could not organise a Pi—up in a brewery came to mind,then i thought perhaps the staff could ne moved across to help in the schools where we have no classrooms or teachers to teach the ever growing number of kids in Salford who have no places?
