World in Focus in Darnall

The sun shone on Darnall Neighbourhood Park on Saturday 1st September for the One World Day event organised by “SUG” Tenants and Residents Association. It was a day of celebration for the community of the Stovin, Uttley and Greenlands estates, and local people of all ages and backgrounds turned out in force to take part in this groundbreaking event.
“This is the first event of this kind on the estate, and it’s marvellous to see everyone having such a great time” said Frank Turner, the chair of the TARA, (pictured here with two of the workers from Activity Sheffield). He said, "We’ve worked really hard to get here today and had lots of help from Darnall Forum, but it’s all been worth it when you see the residents having fun together in the park”.

The event was opened by the local MP, Clive Betts, (pictured with Cllrs Mary Lee and Mazher Iqbal). He said “It’s great to see local residents and community groups from Darnall working together to create a day for the whole community to enjoy.”

Entertainment was provided by the Norfolk Heritage Park Majorettes, a Steel Band performing classic pop songs with a Caribbean twist, Bollywood Dance performed by Hina and Co (pictured) and some local children and young people who had a go in a dance workshop.

There were also plenty of other activities for children and young people including: DJ workshops provided by Darnall Music Factory; a climbing tower: football (even the Community Police Officers couldn’t resist a quick game with local kids); face painting; bouncy castles; and arts and craft activities.

The day was rounded off when the resident Street Artist for the day, Marco Manyou, completed his One World Day commemorative masterpiece (also pictured) which will now be installed in the Greenlands Community Room.

The last picture shows Lyn and Jo from Darnall Well-Being preparing their popular fruit kebabs.

The day was funded by Awards for All, Sheffield City Council, ABC Awards, Darnall Area Trust Fund, Wates and Sheffield Homes. Darnall Forum is funded by ERDF through Objective 1 and Yorkshire Forward.
