3 local news local stories news prestigious bentley award for local company A long established firm, based in the Irlam and Cadishead District for almost 30 years have received a top award from one of the worlds most prestigious brands. Simon Beeston, a Director of Greenoaks based on the Northbank Industrial Estate has been awarded Bentley Motors Ltd Contractor of the Year for Simon accepted the award last week from Liz Jackson, Bentley Construction Safety Engineer and Graham Chadwick, Bentley Environment & CDM Functional Manager. The award was given in appreciation for outstanding professionalism and customer service, the quality of Risk and Method Statement, working practices on site and the quality of work provided. Greenoaks Ltd have been in Irlam on the Northbank Industrial Estate for nearly 30 years, supplying and installing new and used Pallet Racking, Longspan and Adjustable Shelving systems along with Partitioning, Ceilings and Mezzanine Floors. The company employs 16 staff, many from the District and some of whom have been with the company for over 20 years.

Simon and fellow Director Gary Rogerson are pictured with the Award alongside happy employees Joanne Sharples, Michelle Jackson, Robert Davies and Diane Cathcart all from Irlam and Cadishead. councillors voice fracking concerns With plans to start exploratory drilling on Barton Moss in November and the possibility of controversial fracking processes being used in the near future, Irlam and Cadishead Councillors have called for some assurances. Councillor Roger Jones stated I feel it is very important to say that shale gas extraction (fracking) should only proceed when it is environmentally safe to do so. Igas will commence exploratory drilling for coal bed methane and shale gas on Barton Moss in November We expect from September 2014 onwards they will analyse the results and decide whether there is suffi cient gas to commence commercial extraction. The extraction of coal bed methane could then take place around 2015 but that process does not involve fracking. The extraction of shale gas which would involve fracking will need a further planning application to Salford City Council and the Government. Local Councillors attended a seminar last week on this subject and they listened to views from all sides on the question of fracking. Further seminars will be arranged over the next 12 months. They have stated that it is quite clear already that a number of issues must be addressed before any planning application can be considered: 1. Baseline conditions must be assessed with micro-seismic monitoring. An early warning detection system should also be implemented. 2. The chemicals used in this process must be non-hazardous with mandatory disclosure of chemicals used. 3. The integrity of the shale gas well must be assured to prevent water contamination. 4. The level of methane in groundwater should be assessed prior to drilling. 5. The site at Barton Moss must have a full environmental impact assessment. 6. All this monitoring activity must take place over a 12 month period to allow suffi cient time to gather all the evidence required for the planning application. 7. If the Government are minded to give planning permission for shale gas extraction using fracking then there must be a clear benefi t for local residents including a long term sustainable investment into Irlam and Cadishead and a feasibility study into lower energy prices for local residents. community news and information for Irlam and Cadishead 3

Their programme in the second half ended with Pan Fyddor Nos Yn Hir, a song that had been composed for them, and which had the audience clapping along. Solos were sung by Emyr Jones and Rhys Peters and a tin whistle played by Eamon O Donnel.

Words by Beth Gleave restoring addison road allotments Restorative work has started to bring an urban jungle back in to use as allotments for, offering green fi ngered residents the chance to grow and indeed eat their own locally grown produce. Work has started on the Addison Road site in Irlam, with the Salford Probation Community Payback team doing a great job in Strimming back the area. The work is overseen by Manchester College who are running an OCN course in Horticulture so the offenders fi nish with a certifi cate for their efforts. A meeting was also held at Boundary Road Methodist Church for the local residents from the waiting list interested in obtaining a plot when the allotments become available. A committee was formed with a constitution set up and a bank account opened which will allow the group to apply for funding. community news and information for Irlam and Cadishead 5

6 local stories spooky times at prince s park Were you brave enough to venture down to Irlam s Prince s Park this Halloween and walk in the enchanted wood? With a legion of zombies, witches, hobbits, ghosts and ghouls haunting the Liverpool Road Park, courtesy of the Salford Musical Theatre Company there were certainly some strange sights to see. It was all in good spirits though, as Salford Community Leisure held their Halloween Spooky Thriller at the Park on Friday 25th October. Visitors took time out to make their way through the Spooky Walk, whilst others had their faces painted, took part in the arts and crafts activities available under the pale moonlight or listened to stories from a friendly story telling witch. The event was supported by the Friends of Irlam and Cadishead Parks and Irlam and Cadishead Community Committee. Thanks also to story writer Jane McNulty, St John s Ambulance and The Rotary Club of Irlam, who provided volunteers on the night. ghosts spotted on dudley road There were more spooky goings on down at Dudley Road in Cadishead recently with reports of vampires, ghosts, monsters and even Frankenstein spotted rampaging in the area.

7 local stories news pumpkins carved at fiddlers lane Around 50 families took part in the Fiddlers Lane Primary School Family Pumpkin Carving Session (pictured) as part of the schools Halloween fun activities before the Half Term break. Under the supervision of staff and parents, children set about their pumpkins in all shapes and sizes to make a mountain of pumpkin lanterns some friendly, some scary but all spectacular. Ann McQuirk business manager at the school told M44 News, It was great to see so many students and their parents joining in this group activity. The whole hall was literally full of pumpkins being carved by creative parents, guardians and their children, the lanterns looking spectacular at our Halloween Disco later in the week. At the disco vampires, witches, zombies, monsters, ghosts and ghouls turned up in their droves at the appointed witching hour and even school staff joined in the fun with pointed hats and witches capes the order of the day. fireworks saved at eleventh hour The Annual Irlam and Cadishead Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night has been saved from being axed at the eleventh hour. The popular free event at Prince s Park on Liverpool Road has been one of the highlights on the local calendar for many years, attracting thousands to the Park to watch the Bonfi re and Fireworks Spectacular in a safe environment. However, Irlam and Cadishead Councillors received letters on the 28th October telling them the event would not go ahead after facing the axe in Salford Councils bid to save money. Cllr Roger Jones said, We immediately contacted and lobbied Salford Mayor Ian Stewart to try and sort out this issue. After all the Bonfi re night on Friday 8th November had already been advertised and mentioned extensively locally and to axe it at such short notice was just not on. Mayor Stewart agreed with the Councillors that the 14,000 that would be saved didn t warrant cancelling the show at such late notice, so the Bonfi re and Fireworks were allowed to go ahead, for this year at least. It seems therefore, this may well be the last Council funded Bonfi re Night for the Irlam and Cadishead District. An end of an era, in the face of yet more cutbacks to Council funding. most haunted down at the boathouse The Boathouse Pub in Irlam became the Most Haunted in the District as Halloween Fever gripped the popular pub with ghosts, skeletons, witches, devils and the odd pumpkin all playing their part! Landlady Jean told the M44 News, Every year we hold a party for children with funds raised by the Pubs Bonus Ball Competition. We had games, drinks and refreshment for the young ones who all seemed to have a great scary time. Leader of the Pack and keeping the Little Devils in check down at the Boathouse was renowned local entertainer Budgie (pictured) with the Monster Mash and Thriller topping the dance fl oor requests. community news and information for Irlam and Cadishead 7

8 local stories british heart foundation in double benefit The Rotary Club of Irlam held a Ladies Evening recently, with two important themes. First, they were entertained by three students from Irlam & Cadishead College (ICC) who had recently taken the R.Y.L.A. (Rotary Young Leaders Award). The course is a way of taking young people away from their home environment, to teach them life skills, problem solving and leadership. The second theme was based on the Rotary President s chosen charity of the year. Rotarians raise money each year by donating their loose change at each meeting. The outgoing Rotary President, Jim Parker explained My chosen charity for my term was the British Heart Foundation (BHF). The Inner Wheel s President for the same period was Barbara Murchan and without knowing, it transpired she had chosen the same charity as I had. Our Ladies Evening was the ideal occasion to invite a representative from the British Heart Foundation to join us for a joint presentation of our respective cheques. Brian Critchley, a treasurer for the BHF was keen to accept, so travelled from Macclesfi eld to be with us. I have already explained how we collect our contribution, which was around 500 but the Inner Wheel put far more work into raising their donation. At the recent Summer Show the ladies of Inner Wheel, baked cakes, cakes and more cakes, and along with teas and coffees raised the absolutely fantastic fi gure of 1,240. Brian gave a wonderful acceptance speech, telling everyone just how helpful these donations are and how they will enable them to achieve much more. fundraiser for bev slater Fundraisers at Irlam Endowed School have raised around 500 in memory of brave Irlam mum Bev Slater, who passed away recently after losing her battle with Cancer. An afternoon cream tea organised by the catering staff and other fundraising events supported by staff, parents and students raised the fantastic total in memory of Bev, who will be forever remembered for her work in the area and her incredible dedication. Despite everything, Bev gave her all to local community projects and her memory lives on in the work she did and the friends she made. fire station goes pink for charity The Irlam and Cadishead Health Improvement Service, together with the local fi re service got together recently to raise awareness of breast cancer and to fund raise for Macmillan and Breakthrough Breast Cancer during Pink October, breast cancer awareness month. Held at the Irlam Fire Station on Fairhills Road the community were invited to sample some delicious healthy snacks, fi nd out more information and advice on Breast Cancer Awareness and generally come together as a community to support the day.

It is people like these who make our communities special and its gives us a huge amount of pride to see the lengths our customers go to in a bid to improve the neighbourhoods where they live. deeper cuts to care services announced Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, recently passed a proposal to make adults with moderate care needs ineligible for funding. In his response to the council executive, Mayor Stewart said: I have reluctantly, and with a very heavy heart, decided to accept the proposal. The change to the Fair Access to Care Services (FACS) policy will affect an estimated 1300 Salford residents and anyone who does not have substantial or critical needs will become responsible for fi nancing their own care. The savings will contribute to the 75m in savings Salford Council need to make over the next two years. Mayor Ian Stewart criticised the coalition government who have already imposed over 97m in cuts over the last two years, calling them insensitive and heartless to those most in need. Mr Stewart said the decision was horrendous but insisted he had no alternative other than to approve the proposal, if Salford Council are to preserve the care available to those with substantial and critical care needs. Councillor Peter Connor, Assistant Mayor for Adult Services and Services for Older People, presented the proposal, which included extensive consultation over a period of more than 12 months. He said: It is very clear that all of us are saddened to have to make these decisions on behalf of the vulnerable because of global fi nancial mismanagement. The council will continue to be responsible for assessing those who present themselves with community care needs and will also provide information and advice. The Mayor concluded his decision by commending Salford Council for being the last local authority in Greater Manchester to succumb to the pressures of austerity and amend their FACS policy, stating 87 per cent of local authorities have already made moderate care ineligible for funding. 10 news issue 18

An Irlam man whose mother suffers with multiple sclerosis, spoke anonymously to M44 about his experience with Salford Council care funding after she incurred a whopping 7000 cost when she made the choice to change care provider. He said: Six months ago we changed my mum s care as we weren t happy with the council s approved provider. We had a torrid time with Sevecare. The new carers, Select Community Support (SCS) have been fantastic, but they re graded as tier four and are not on the approved council list. His mother now has a shortfall of 2.54 an hour and receives 56 hours of care each week, resulting in an additional 7000 a year to fi nd. However some M44 residents feel the council s direct payment policy eliminates choice, with only certain approved companies servicing Irlam and Cadishead. Residents are expressing concern, the lack of choice is resulting in a monopoly for certain care providers whom they allege use their position as an excuse for shoddy practices and understaffi ng. Salford Council responded, stating: There is no monopoly in M44 or any other area. It is up to agencies where they choose to provide services. Seven companies were awarded home care contracts by tender in A further 14 companies did not win contracts but agreed to sign up to Salford City Council s quality standards. All of these agencies offer care at market rates. Salford City Council s tender in 2010 was for three year contracts, with an option to extend for a further two years. We will be extending contracts. A spokesperson for Pendelers Trust, said: Salford Council s judgement of care may be different to what you or I think, but the decision is theirs. Agencies and service users being frustrated at their care not being on a higher tier is a common problem. Anyone with concerns over their care funding should contact the Adult Social Care Team on Helen Baker, Salford Director for Sevacare said she was unable to investigate allegations of poor service standards if the lady concerned wished to remain anonymous. She said All our staff receive a full induction, including three days in a classroom followed by shadowing. 12 news issue 18

Firefi ghter Dave Pike said, Irlam s a community based station, so we were only too happy when the youngsters said they wanted to cook for us as part of their lessons, which are outside of mainstream education.

The Treacle campaign is designed to prevent, tackle and protect against antisocial behaviour, criminal damage and reducing incidents and injuries during the Halloween and Bonfi re night period. Councillor John Merry, Salford City Council s assistant mayor for children added, We decided it d be great to engage in community participation at the same time so the teenagers were delighted that the fi refi ghters took us up on our offer to cook them lunch.

Because of them the once neglected cemetery is being transformed from an overgrown and dark space into a pleasant green public area for all to enjoy. Gravetending Scheme. Chair Mandy Eccles told M44 News, The introduction of our Gravetending Scheme has proved to be a most welcomed service by relations of the bereaved who cannot attend their loved ones graves. Apart from giving relations peace of mind that their grave is regularly cleaned and sensitively cared for, all monies received from the scheme and from other generous donations are used to purchase plants and shrubs to further enhance the look of the cemetery. The Friends work in partnership with Warrington Borough Council (WBC) Bereavement Services and are committed to engaging the support of the local community and businesses. Volunteers span all ages from young children to adults with over 60 years of experience, all bringing different skills and practical assistance. With such a wealth of support many things have been achieved. Successful fundraising and grant applications have secured funding from Stronger Together, The Hamilton Davies Trust, WBC Bereavement Services, The Rotary Club of Irlam, Warrington Charities Trust and Community Chest. Monies raised have enabled Friends to provide tools and equipment for volunteers; new security fencing; watering cans for grave tenders; a seated weather shelter for visitors; large planters; and a new bench. WBC Bereavement Services have also introduced security cameras, a Friends notice board and additional water taps. Their Memorial Improvement Scheme and tree works are making a big difference to the look and feel of the cemetery - contact for more detail.

32 local sport ic college so close to victory ICC Year 11 s travelled to The Cliff for their annual football tournament and only just missed out on the win. It would be an extremely successful day on the whole, with the side giving 100% throughout before finishing as worthy runners up. After progressing through the group stages, Murphy showed his class in the semi - fi nal to grab the game s only goal and send a jubilant ICC into the fi nal. Special mentions must go to the back three of Sabor, Carey and Peck who gave little away all day and gave ICC a solid platform from which to build. The fi nal was a close game with both of the sides creating occasional chances, lacking the killer touch. With minutes to go, Irlam conceded a late goal, only to then push up and in dramatic fashion nearly snatch the equaliser from a corner via the head of goalkeeper Finnegan. The ball bounced off the crossbar, to the opposing left winger who launched a speculative shot into the empty goal to make the game 2-0. Despite the score line, the team left immensely proud of their efforts on the day. brothers go back to their roots flying high thanks to eagles wing Cadishead Sports JFC U11 s had a fantastic pre-season and will hopefully be soaring to new heights thanks to a brand new full strip and jackets courtesy of Eagles Wing Tattoo Studios, based at various locations around the North West. Under the guidance of Manager Jimmy Ling and assistant Phil Barlow the team have not lost a game all pre-season and won the prestigious Rochdale Tournament in August. That form has carried on to the start of the season winning their fi rst two league games against Lymm and Woolston. Manager Jimmy told M44 We have a great bunch of talented kids with good attitude, dedication and determination. They just love playing football and turning out for Cadishead JFC. I would personally like to thank Ivan and Eagles Wing Tattoo Studios for their tremendous support of the full kit and jackets. You can support them by visiting Two professional footballers came back to their roots to support the football club where it all began.

Adam said I graduated from Salford University in 2012 and made it my mission to gain a job in football. I applied for a voluntary position working for Burnley FC and started in August 2012, learning the entire role and daily demands of a physio in a professional football club.after the season ended I remained determined to gain a full time job and wrote to every Head Physio of every Premiership and Championship Football Club, including an up-to-date CV with references from Burnley FC. Amazingly, Everton rang me and, after a meeting, they offered me a job. cadishead vets make it a double Cadishead Veterans Bowling Club beat Stretford vets in the final of the Eccles and District veterans bowling league to win the prestigious Coronation cup recently.

Adam Newall, pictured left middle It is an absolute pleasure to go to work every day and I would recommend voluntary work to anybody who has completed an undergraduate degree and wishes to chase their dream job. Without the year at Burnley FC, I would not have been given such a fantastic opportunity at such a massive club. community news and information for Irlam and Cadishead 33
