I TOLD you all about Urmston Festival — Party on the Pitch last week, and it’s finally arrived! This weekend we will have a musical extravaganza right here in Urmston featuring The Osmonds, The Bootleg Beatles and many more.

It’s going to be a fantastic event that I am very much looking forward to opening on both the Saturday and the Sunday. If you haven’t got your tickets yet you can do so from the Three Barrels Bar on Flixton Rd Urmston or I believe you can pay on the gate. I hope to see you all there!

As this week draws to a close we have to say thank you and good bye to our Mayor of Trafford, Cllr Tom Ross and say a very warm hello to our new Mayor Cllr Rob Chilton.

Mayor Ross has been a fantastic Mayor and I don’t think there has been an event or occasion that he was invited to that he didn’t attend! It has been a real pleasure to attend events with him and to have Mayor Ross attend my own events. I’m sure you’ll all agree that he has earned a good rest now after a year of non stop public duty where he jumped feet first into every event. I know you’ll all join me in wishing him well for his future and thanking him for all he has done for Trafford.

It’s also a great pleasure to welcome our new Mayor of Trafford, Cllr Rob Chilton. I look forward to seeing him at future events throughout the year, such as this Saturday’s Urmston Festival, and wish him all the very best in his new role and hope he enjoys his time as Mayor of Trafford.

All About Trafford, my new events website for Trafford is quickly approaching 20,000 visitors, which is fantastic for a five-week-old website.

I created the website to give locals a one stop hub for events, clubs and groups within the borough of Trafford and I am thrilled that you are using it and that it is of use to you.

www.allabouttrafford.co.uk is free to submit events and free to view them. Please keep sending me your events to devlinbookings@aol.com and I will continue to list them all for you. Also don’t forget to send me your announcements, birthdays, anniversaries etc and I will read them out on my weekly video.

See you all next week and thank you as always for your continued support.
