A series of eight short films celebrating Salford’s abundance of beautiful green spaces has been produced by Marketing Manchester on behalf of Salford City Council and the University of Salford.

Part of a broader storytelling partnership designed to promote Salford as a brilliant place to live, work, invest, visit and study, the films demonstrate Salford’s green credentials through interviews with individuals linked to a variety of green locations across the city.

The films provide a broad overview of the different types of green space in Salford, with interviewees ranging from local families to park rangers to gardeners, community groups, academics and the head of the new RHS Garden Bridgewater in Worsley.

They are being shared on social media using the hashtag #GreenSalford and are available for use by organisations working regionally, nationally and internationally to highlight the quality of life available in Salford.

Films showing RHS Garden Bridgewater, Ordsall Hall and Peel Park have already been shown at the 2020 Greater Manchester Green Summit.

Films in the #GreenSalford series are designed to update perceptions of Salford by emphasising the quality of life available within the borough, with significant investment in recent years.

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said:“Sixty per cent of Salford is beautiful green, open space, and we have such a variety of places, from parks and woodlands to Chat Moss and Kersal Wetlands, our new flood basin and nature reserve.

“This project, working in partnership with Marketing Manchester and University of Salford is all about raising awareness of the city’s green space and now more than ever before, people are recognising the importance of these spaces and the benefits they bring and are proud that Salford is such a green city.”

Sheona Southern, managing director of Marketing Manchester, said: “The ability to access green space is an incredibly important factor for people considering where they want to live, work, visit and study. By helping to showcase Salford’s green credentials we hope to be able play a part in influencing decisions that lead to inward investment, jobs and economic growth.

“Salford has a fantastic story to tell and through this partnership with Marketing Manchester, Salford City Council and the University of Salford will be able to tell it more widely. We’re making these films available to anyone who would like to help us highlight the green spaces that make Salford such a brilliant place and would urge people to support us by sharing this content.”
