ROW, row, row the boat - but not in this case gently down the stream...

Youngsters from four Sheffield schools put their backs into a hard fought physical contest - without ever seeing a drop of water.

The indoor rowing event at Sheffield Springs Academy saw Year 7 pupils at the school battling teams from Valley Park, Bradfield and Notre Dame.

The day was organised by five students from Sheffield Hallam University.

Emma Smith, a third year at Hallam, said the event had been organised as part of their degree courses in festivals and events management.

“The aim was to make the whole day a highly enjoyable and entertaining experience for everyone, and I think we achieved that,” Emma added.
