I HAVE worked on our local soap Coronation Street on a number of occasions and always found everyone to be really friendly and professional and none more so than our very own Trafford local, Sally Dynevor.

Sally has lived and worked in Trafford for 30 years, her three children were all born at Trafford General Hospital and schooled right here in Trafford.

I asked Sally where she liked to go in Trafford and here’s what she had to say.

"Altrincham Market is wonderful. A real community space with a huge variety of food and drink and an exciting place to be and to meet people.

"The market started off a huge regeneration in Altrincham and it’s now a really vibrant place to be.

"We’re also really lucky to have Dunham Massey and Tatton Park on our doorstep. And we’re lucky to have several great theatres within a short drive and we’re really looking forward to having the new Everyman Cinema in Altrincham later this year. Also, the entire Dynevor family are huge Manchester United fans."

I wanted to know how Sally got into the world of dramatics and how did Sally Dynevor become Sally Webster?

"From the age of 13, I knew what I wanted to do. I joined the Oldham Theatre Workshop and at 18 I moved to London and was accepted at Mountview Theatre School. Coronation Street brought me back home to the North.

"I’ve had the best time working on Corrie, I’ve been so lucky. There are so many highlights: Kevin and Sally’s ups and downs, some wonderfully dramatic, and funny, stories over the years, but now I’m really enjoying Sally and Tim’s relationship and I love it when Sally thinks she’s grander than she is, she’s such fun to play."

When not at work, Sally’s favourite thing to do is spending time with her family.

"I also love going for a run and listening to podcasts, going to the cinema and taking the dogs for walks. And boxsets. Lots of boxsets."

Sally and I both share a passion for supporting local charities and I have had the pleasure of performing for a few charities that are very special to her.

"I’m very proud to be patron of the Trafford-based Prevent Breast Cancer charity and its aim is to eradicate breast cancer for the next generation. I’m also a patron of Beechwood Cancer Care in Stockport, a wonderful charity."

I’d like to thank Sally for taking the time out of her hectic schedule to chat to me about her life here in Trafford. If you would like to help support Sally’s charities there will be a Stars in their Eyes charity evening on June 2 at the Royal Northern College of Music with Matthew Kelly reprising the famous musical talent show.

There will also be a Butterfly Ball at the Principle, Manchester on June 30, where I am proud to be performing. See beechwoodcancercare.co.uk

See you next week!
