New DGP Youth Group: Sheff Shakes
Coming to the Lantern Theatre offering taster workshops, a Summer School and classes starting in September
Sheff Shakes is a new inclusive Shakespeare based youth drama group situated at the historic Lantern Theatre in Nether Edge. Our team consists of highly experienced, DBS checked Dilys Guite Player members who want to expand the offering of this active community theatre to younger members. We aim to provide children with a complete drama based theatrical experience on a real stage with regular classes due to begin in September 2017.
To introduce young people to the group we are offering FREE Shakespeare workshops on June 17 and 24 from 10am to 1pm for any interested children aged between 11 and 16. No auditions are required but places are very limited so please book a place. The content is identical on both dates so you only need to attend one.
We are also planning a week long Summer School (24 - 28 July with a performance 30 July) based on HAMLET culminating in a show complete with costumes, lights and sound. The Summer School fees are £75 for the week. Places for our free workshops and the Summer School can be booked through our box office.
Message from South Yorkshire Police:
South Yorkshire Police will be reintroducing neighbourhood policing to Sheffield in the next few months. To ensure the Neighbourhood teams provide an excellent service in the most effective and productive way possible, the Chief Constable would like to consult with communities and partners within Sheffield to gain a thorough understanding of their needs, expectations and concerns about Neighbourhood policing, so that feedback can be considered fully in developing the new policing model.
These events are being held to gain local community opinion. In your part of the city, there will be an event on 9th May and we would welcome your attendance.
St Mary’s Church, Bramall Lane – 9th May 2017 at 6pm.
We look forward to meeting you.
Happy 150th birthday to Nether Edge Bowling Club !

Public Meeting re Bannerdale development 9 February, St. Oswald’s Church, 6.30-8.30pm
The Bannerdale site off Carter Knowle Road is proposed to be developed within the next year or two to hold a new school and housing development and at the same time still to provide access to the general public as a community open space.
Some have expressed concerns about this development, not least about the intensive use of the space but also about the future viability of the new 11 to 18 school.
Parents of children currently in primary schools along the Abbeydale corridor and around Banner Cross will be interested to know from where the new school will draw its pupil intake while residents in the Bannerdale area who will be affected by the development will wish to see what it means for them.
