Darnall Post Office is Now Officially A Success

This year's Annual General Meeting of Darnall Forum, to be held on Tuesday 30 September in Darnall Community Post Office, will be told that Darnall Post Office is now officially a success.

'The auditors have given the post office a clean bill of health this year,' said Neil Bishop - Forum manager and officer in charge of the post office. 'Thanks to the hard work of our staff and the support and confidence of our trustees - who stood by the post office during its early days when things were not easy - the post office has now begun to repay its debts to the charity. We also had a makeover in 2013, and we would like to hear what the residents of Darnall think about the way the post office is run and the other work which Darnall Forum does in the community.'

Darnall Forum is the owner of Darnall Post Office and organises community learning, advice for jobseekers and support for local groups and residents who want to make a difference to our community.

Residents and people who work in Darnall are invited to come along and have their say about life in Darnall, the post office and the other work of the Forum, on Tuesday 30 September at. The meeting begins at 5pm.

Lord Mayor to Visit Darnall Carnival on Saturday

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Cllr Peter Rippon, will visit Darnall Carnival at 1pm on Saturday. He will be met by children from Greenlands School, who will lead him into High Hazels Park where the event is taking place from 12 till 5. Attractions include an array of music and dance artists, Elijah, Immi, Raxstar, Rita, the Romano Jilo Dance Group, Shak Illmatik, Shide Boss, SunAash and TazZ, as well as stalls, rides, information, food and other attractions.

The event is organised by the Friends of High Hazels Park with the support of Darnall Forum and funding from Awards For All, British Land and Meadowhall, Sheffield Town Trust, J G Graves' Charitable Trust and Darnall Area Trust Fund.

Last year 5,000 people visited the Carnival and if the threat of light rain showers holds off, similar crowds are anticipated again, with the largest attraction being the afternoon performance by some of the UK's leading Bhangra music artists. However, there will be plenty to do for all the family.
