Life on the Cross proving popular

Have your say

IT might get the occasional spot of bad press but it seems Sheffield’s Parson Cross is the most popular place in Yorkshire right now. Sort of.

A book of memoirs recalling the Sheffield estate during the 1960s is top of the Waterstone’s local best sellers list.

Gee’or Ruwerin by Steve Bush has beaten off competition from the likes of The Rough Guide To Yorkshire to take the number one spot at the company’s flagship Orchard Square shop.

Steve won’t be ruwerin about that.

n IT fair warmed the cockles to hear about the two Sheffield cousins who last week proved public spiritedness is alive and well among the young.

Larissa Andrews, 14, and Benjamin Sibanda, 12, handed in £120 to police after finding the cash on a tram, and as a reward for their honesty were given...a certificate.

Yup, a certificate.

One can’t help but wonder if they’ll think twice before being so public spirited next time.

n CONGRATULATIONS to staff at St Luke’s Hospice who, with Easter eggs barely eaten, have fired off their first press release for Christmas 2011.

Summer’s not even here but the centre, in Little Common Lane, Sheffield, is already looking for volunteers to help design their greetings cards. Talk about being organised.

Meanwhile, at the other extreme, some people haven’t even finished celebrating last year’s festivities.

A Christmas Musical Cavalcade, which was cancelled in December because of bad weather, will take place at the City Hall on Sunday. Sheffield: the city where one Christmas runs into another.
