In Brief

Have your say

PUPILS in Sheffield will soon be learning about healthy eating and how their food gets from farm to plate at Whirlow Hall Farm.

Food tasting and lessons on growing and harvesting will be given as children experience daily life on a working farm.

It’s thanks to a £160,000 boost for the farm’s Good Grounding project from Local Food, a £57.5 million programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

Charlie Hill, Whirlow Hall Farm Trust Education Officer, said: “Good Grounding provides children with a greater understanding of where their food comes from, so they can make better choices about what they eat and understand the value of British farming.”

ALWAYS torn when it comes to choosing from the menu?

Monthly jazz nights are also going with a swing at the pub.

Joel White and Simon Peat, who ran his own jazz club, the One Eleven at what is now Silversmith’s restaurant on Arundel Street, will be playing on Monday, April 9, from 7.30pm.

Sharing platters and Yorkshire cheeseboards will be available.

GUESTS will be going Gaga for the night at the Copthorne Hotel on April 13.

The restaurant is staging a show dinner, with Lady Gaga tribute act V.J. performing. Tickets, £19.95, include a three-course dinner.

SANDWICH chain Subway is the latest name to join the Food Hub at the Crystal Peaks shopping mall.

Subway opens this week, joining Hey Potato, Costa Coffee, McDonalds and Time Café.

“Subway’s arrival in the Food Hub means customers have a very wide choice now,” said centre manager Lee Greenwood.
