CHOIR IN THE GARDEN

And while we’re in the Winter Garden for today’s main Diary piece, remember Dore Male Voice Choir?

This is the original Sheffield boy band – featured on this page earlier this month – who are toasting their 50th anniversary in 2014. Now, as part of the celebrations they’ll be performing free in the prestigious glass venue on Saturday. Takes place 11.30am – 12.30pm, and well worth going along for.

A LITTLE DIFFERENT

From the sublime to the ridiculous, and here’s an advert you don’t see every day: a Barnsley stripogram agency is looking to recruit several kissogram dwarves.

Hayley B Entertainment say it’s been inundated with calls from prospective customers wanting to book such a service.

“There’s just nobody out there who does it,” says Hayley herself. “I’d really like to recruit someone.”

YOU DON’T SAY?

More world-stopping research from Sheffield University, then?

Boffins there, as reported in The Star, have ‘discovered’ that supermarkets tend to puts lots of junk food at checkouts in order to tempt customers to buy it.

Well, who’d have thunk it? One wonders how much that research cost. And, more to the point, what department led it – the faculty for stating the bleedin’ obvious, presumably?

POTENTIAL FOR LESS MOANING

Julie Dore, Sheffield City Council leader, says she wants more decentralised power so she can help Sheffield achieve its full potential.

Why? All she’s ever done with her power as council leader is rant about government cuts. Isn’t it time for less moaning and more making things happen?
