Celebration of estate’s history

Have your say

A CELEBRATION event is being held on a Sheffield housing estate to look back on the area’s history.

Parson Cross’s new library, off Buchanan Road, is hosting the event on Thursday, December 1, from 7pm.

Special guests will be writers Graham Shepherd and Steve Bush, together with Parson Cross’s most famous son, former Home Secretary David Blunkett MP.

The authors’ two books – Get Thi Neck Weshed, by Graham, and about life on the estate in the 1950s, and Gee’or Ruwerin, by Steve, about growing up there a decade later – have become local bestsellers.

There will also be a chance to buy the books and get them signed by the authors.

n Tickets cost £6.50 or £5.50 for concessions and are on sale from Parson Cross Library or by calling 0114 2039533.
