Save Our Duncan Matheson Field

This Salford field was bought by the Manchester and Salford Playing Fields Society in 1910. This field has been used regularly for sports and community activities but now the current charity (Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester) are trying to sell this for development (flats and houses). This is not what this field was designed for nor, what the local residents want due to the busy nature of the area, the current congestion, pollution, lack of infrastructure to accommodate a large development and impact on traffic (and 999) access to Salford Royal Hospital. There is a high demand for playing fields in the area as there are very few local pitches left so it should not be sold.
