News In Brief: Christmas dinner - in a beautiful butty

Have your say

TUCK into a Big Roast this Sunday from 1pm to 4pm at The Old Junior School, South View Road, Sharrow, Sheffield.

Entry of £2, or £5 for a family, buys the chance to cook along with the making of roast dinner sandwiches - a whole Christmas dinner in a hand-held snack. Mulled wine and juice will be served.

There will also be magic, crafts, games, a choir, and a visit from Father Christmas.

Well done, helpers

Action on Hearing Loss helpers in Rotherham are to receive a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award. The Rotherham group helps hard-of-hearing people adjust to life with a hearing aid, befriends people isolated by hearing loss, and fundraises.

Burn off calories

FAMILIES can burn off the Christmas excesses at Wentworth Castle, Barnsley, with an Orienteering Challenge from 10am on Sunday, January 6. Tickets are £2 for children and OAPs and £4 for adults. Family tickets are £10. All can be bought on the day.

Festive fundraiser

A FESTIVE night organised by Hackenthorpe and Birley Community Association raised £207.64 for Bluebell Wood. Association secretary Barbara Stapleton said: “I’d like to thank everyone who came and the members of the committee who helped.”

Currying favour

SHEFFIELD Indian restaurant Ashoka has been crowned the best in Yorkshire and one of top 10 in the UK. The Ecclesall Road eaterie was given the honour in the Cobra Good Curry Guide, beating 9,000 others.
