Have your say

Fancy trying something different, picking up a new skill or going to an unusual place? You have come to the right place.

Whatever the weatherman says, summer is here and the holidays are racing towards us.

At The Star we have a busy schedule of special offers, what’s-on guides, and ideas to keep the whole family busy.

But this year be prepared for something completely unique and new.

We will have two pull-outs a week designed to get you involved and shine the spotlight on summer fun.

One will run throughout July and August in the form of a supplement based entirely on what you, our Star readers, have tried and tested.

A small army of families is beavering away trying out attractions, games and events across the region so mums, dads and children can share their tips on where to go and what to do.

They will be tempting you to venture to areas of Sheffield you might not have traditionally thought of visiting for an afternoon, as well as putting some of the city’s best-loved places through their paces.

We have youngsters picking through this summer’s best reads, and professionals coming up with their own suggestions for cheap ways to try new things.

The deal is simple - we get them entry tickets or a book or a game - and they write a short article telling our readers whether it was any good or not.

While school is out there are also still plenty of ways to get involved in Class Act.

We are looking for summer schools and clubs to feature as well as unsung heroes for us to salute and education topics with a twist.

There will also be exam specials and a guide to surviving clearing as the big results days loom.

If you would like to join our growing team of Sheffield families writing reviews for The Star, get in touch with your details.

It doesn’t matter whether you are eight, 80, or somewhere in between.
