TO mark the launch of our new title Salford City News, we thought we would give you another reason to celebrate.

We have teamed up with some of the best businesses in the city to reward our new readers with some brilliant prizes.

First up, Pier Eight, The Lowry’s stylish bar and restaurant, are offering you the chance to win an afternoon tea for two.

Relax overlooking the stunning waterside setting of Salford Quays with a variety of finger sandwiches, fresh scones and sweet treats.

The prize is available to use on any Saturday between 12 and 3pm subject to availability.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is tell us why you love Salford.

You can enter by commenting underneath our competition post on our Facebook or Instagram pages, tweet us @SalfordCityNews your reason using #AfternoonTea or email

We will include some of our favourite reasons in this week's first edition of the newspaper and will pick a winner at random on January 29.
