Communications received (E.g. on ).

  • Joan Jones emailed to say that the ArcHeritage report on the Rollem site is useful starting point for research on the watermills along the Common.
  • From Tegwen Roberts of EPIP:- "We're funding an 'Industrial Heritage Summer School' in Grenoside during July and August, which will be delivered by the Council for British Archaeology and is aimed at community groups who want to find out more about different ways of conserving and protecting industrial heritage sites in their local areas. There are four linked half-day sessions which are all free to attend.
    We're asking people to try and attend all four sessions if possible, as they are designed as a series. However if you wanted to book a place (or places) on behalf of the group which could then be used by different members depending on who was available that would also be fine." [See details on -JP]
  • Joan Jones emailed to say that work on the ledgers of the Ridge family was proceeding, but not yet finished.
  • Sheffield City Council's, "Planning Department" "Team Manager" has said that "sending a letter of support to us will not, in itself, create any delays to a proposal." It had crossed my mind that in uploading a message of support for last Month's "Parks Group" planning application, we might force the issue to committee and thereby delay or complicate the approval process. However this is not the case, and there seems no downside to our uploading such messages, where we support the application.

Information watch

  • The Northern Assembly have put some information on Shed/Garage security on their Facebook page.
  • Mobile speed cameras¬ will be in operation this week on the A61, Chapeltown Road, and Wordsworth Avenue.
  • The next meeting of the Northern Assembly is on 2012-07-10 (Tuesday) at 18:30 at The Venue, Stocksbridge.
