This is the website of Ellesmere Park Residents Association. We hope to keep local residents and members informed of all things going on in the Park. The website is continuously evolving so please bear with us while we try to get everything back in place.
Ellesmere Park is an affluent, largely residential area of Eccles, Salford, Greater Manchester in the UK.
At a recent meeting to discuss the "Incredible Edible Salford" initiative, Ian Bocock from Eccles College is inviting any local resident who is interesting in visiting the Wentworth High School Community Growing Area to join him at 3pm on Wednesday 8th May, meeting him in the reception area at Eccles College (there will be no need to sign in as a visitor). The Community Growing Area at Wentworth High School will be open to any local resident to join and make use of the facilities once it has been fully established.

"The Salford South Neighbourhood Police Team has worked hard with
partners and the community to tackle anti social behaviour. The area
has seen good year on year reduction in reports of this types of
incident. The results from the recent community survey reveal the
Salford South has seen a significant improvement in people who think that police and local council are dealing with anti-social behaviour and crimes;
There has been a significant increase in people who believe that anti-social behaviour has reduced.
We continue to work with partners and the community to tackle individuals and families who cause problems for the rest of the community and look forward to your continuing support."
"As you may know, I hold a police surgery between 1800/1900 every Wednesday at Eccles Sixth Form College, Chatsworth rd Ellesmere Park. You will find me in the indoor sports hall. If you would like a free smartwater kit please come along and I will give you one. Alternatively drop me an email requesting a kit and an appropriate time that you would be home and I will drop you one off. If you do want to collect one from the surgery, please send me an email to let me know you are coming, just so I know how many smartwater kits to bring with me. "
"Smartwater is a
colourless liquid solution that is simply dabbed onto the uneven
surfaces of your valuables. It can be used to code all sorts of
items such as jewellery, ornaments,electrical items and even your
motor vehicles.Each bottle contains a unique chemical 'code' which
is registered to you - conclusively proving ownership. It cannot be
easily seen by the naked eye and is almost impossible to remove. The
liquid glows under ultraviolet light making it easy for the Police
The Police use it in undercover operations to catch and convict criminals. Criminals know about Smartwater and fear its power to forensically link them with the scene of a crime.
So, by coding your valuables and displaying the Smartwater deterrent signs,you are sending out a powerful warning to any thieves and burglars operating in your area.
There is lots of information about Smartwater on the internet. "
