Help Our Neighbours

At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, residents showed their true community spirit by pulling together to help those struggling to cope. Our little community in Ellesmere Park is no different.

The Ellesmere Park Residents’ Association (EPRA) organised a local support group to bring together those who need help with those who can provide it.

Litter Picking

Residents are rightly concerned about the amount of litter left on our streets.

To address this issue, EPRA have requested extra litter bins and organised voluntary Litter Pick days.

Once the lockdown is lifted we will be launching our EPRA Litter Heroes initiative. Litter pickers, bags and gloves will be provided. As an incentive tea and cakes will be offered afterwards! Our organiser, Bruce Thompson would very much welcome as many volunteers as possible so please do get in touch if you would like to be a part of the group. We are hoping when the rubbish is collected by Salford Council the items can be separated and recycled.

Our resident PCSO for the Eccles, Monton and Ellesmere Park areas is Tony Fletcher.

Tony is known by our community and produced a regular newsletter called Neighbourhood Watch.

He keeps us up to date with all security issues and is always on hand to answer any queries by the residents.

Three Sisters

This natural area, bounded by Chatsworth/Rutland/Westminster and Cavendish Roads, is a jewel in our crown and a favourite spot for many locals.

Three Sisters has been classified as a site of Biological Importance due to the wide variety of life supported by the grassland, wetlands, trees and shrubs.

Surrounded by the Ellesmere Park Conservation Area, the site also contains a Roman road that linked the fort at Castlefield in Manchester with Wigan town centre.

The road was probably constructed to transport raw materials such as coal, stone and wood from the surrounding areas to Castlefield.

Despite several attempts in the past to develop the area, EPRA has maintained it over decades for local benefit, establishing it as a Local Nature Reserve in 2016, with the assistance of the City of Salford Rangers Team.

Swinton Greenway

Salford City Council is working with Transport for Greater Manchester to enhance the walking and cycling routes between Monton and Swinton.

The Swinton Greenway proposals include the route between Monton Road and Victoria Park, with several additional links to local schools, colleges and the wider community. The majority of the off-road path will be three to four metres wide, with lighting controlled by timers and/or movement sensors.

Some of the residents of Ellesmere Park have given their advice, help and support with this ‘green’ initiative.

The area can be experienced on a walk, details of which are to be found under Walks in the ‘What’s On’ section.
