There is speculation amongst the residents of Stretford that Silver Wheels, the roller rink in Altrincham (being demolished shortly) is set to move to the old Essoldo / Longford Cinema building in Stretford. There are various connections and events that give the story some plausibility, plus some talk on the Silver Wheels Facebook group that this is confirmed. At this stage, it is however just speculation with no credible sources (eg planning applications or statements of intent) to back this up. Whilst unexpected, any public use of the building as it stands would be applauded here. If you know any more about this, please leave us a comment or email direct here.
