Messenger editorial

The Messenger office will be closed over the holidays from 21st December, re-opening on 7th January. Our phone lines and emails will still be working though, so if you do have a story, let us know!


We incorrectly identified the man pictured in the ‘silk postcards’ article, on page 6 of the last issue. He is not Colin Levesley, as we said, but his father-in- law, Herbert Pickford, at home in Reginald Street. Apologies.

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
