Local democracy in action

Story by Mark Jones

Burngreave residents presented two petitions to the full Council Chamber on Wednesday 2nd November 2016. One petition called for action to be taken over anti-social behaviour in the passage between Horndean Road and Idsworth Road. The second petition featured a request to tackle street noise and private landlord licensing around Scott Road and surrounding streets.
Both petitioners spoke well and left the chamber fully understanding the issues that they would like the Council to address.

Remembering the Somme

Story by Mark Jones

Councillors and vicar and cadets with a Union Flag gathered around the war memorial
Somme commemoration

On Sunday 20th November we met at the Commonwealth War memorial to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest battles our nation has ever faced. Many braved the weather and joined us to remember those who sacrificed
all. Our thanks go to the children of Pitsmoor Adventure Playground, and Sheffield Sea, Air and Army Cadets who laid crosses for every Burngreave resident who fought and died in World War One.
