CAMPAIGNERS hoping to preserve historic Portland Works in Sheffield as little mesters’ workshops are holding open days at the building.

The events are taking place at the listed complex on Randall Street, which is still occupied by craftsmen, from 11am on Sunday and also in two months’ time on Sunday, May 6.

People can have a guided tour, meet some of the tenants and find out what they do.

Guided tours start every 20 minutes from 11am until 2.30pm and places must be booked in advance by calling 0114 2768484.

The open day is free to the public, but the organisers are hoping for donations towards the Portland Works Campaign to raise £400,000 so it can buy the building and protect it from redevelopment as flats.

The group is also selling shares to fund the purchase.
