HE was a footballing God, legendary boozer, and the best half of Saint and Greavsie.

Now the genius that is Jimmy Greaves is coming to our region – to launch a new chocolate range which he has invested in.

The former Spurs and England striker will feast on the new Tiger J range produced by Sheffield business woman Janet Coghlan, who owns Coghlan’s Cookery School in Bridge Way, Sheepbridge, Chesterfield.

He invested in the product after son Andrew bought him a box.

Launch takes place February 28 at the Cookery School.

Write this way

STAYING with launches, and a new anthology of poetry and short stories inspired by Sheffield will be celebrated tomorrow.

The Write Down Your Street book is the result of council-funded workshops across the city.

The launch - featuring readings and live music - will take place at Cafe Euro in John Street. Admission free.

Concert contest

SHEFFIELD City Hall will ring with children’s voices when BBC show Songs Of Praise holds its annual School Choir Competition there next month.

The national contest will see 12 UK schools - six junior, six senior - compete for the trophy. None of the centres taking part are from South Yorkshire but organisers promise it will be an extravaganza of music with judges including David Grant, Russell Watson and Suzi Digby.

Takes place weekend of March 5 and 6 with shows aired on March 27, April 3 and 10. Tickets available at songsofpraise@bbc.co.uk or on 0161 244 3473.
