Asidelines: An exhibition of ourselves

Have your say

AN exhibition of 365 photos showing a different Sheffielder in a different area of the city for each day of 2010 is to go on show next month.

Sheffield 365 Project, by photographer Luke Avery, will be displayed at The Workstation, in Paternoster Row, from May 5 - 31 with a launch night on May 4.

“I’m excited to see how it goes down,” says Luke, 26, of Palm Street, Walkley. “I’m hoping some of the people I took shots of come along.”

He’s still looking for sponsors to fund the free event, though.

Las Vegas Owls

IT’S a long way from Hillsborough to Las Vegas, Nevada, but news reaches us that America’s Sin City has its very own Sheffield Wednesday football team.

Or perhaps we should say soccer team.

An amateur five-a-side club there, competing in a local city league, has named itself after the Owls because they play on Wednesdays.

Player Price Karr, who works at the Wynn Hotel on legendary Las Vegas Boulevard, says it’s a tribute to the great club.

He’s too kind. Let’s just hope they have a better season than the real Wednesday are doing.

Oh, and by all accounts there’s no equivalent United team.

Berlin book gut

A RETIRED Sheffield German teacher has turned his expertise into a book - Encounter Berlin.

Brian Perch, of Buttermere Drive, Dronfield Woodhouse, has self-published the history of the city through AuthorHouse.

Sounds like it’s a sehr gut read.
