Community Newsletter for Darnall Ward
A group of local organisations in the Darnall ward have been working in partnership this winter on a newsletter for the benefit of the whole community. If you live in Attercliffe, Darnall, Tinsley and Handsworth, watch out for the first edition of The Community Connector arriving week commencing 14th December! All the pages are available to view further down this page – or you can download a copy to print here:
Darnall Well Being came together with Darnall Forum, Tinsley Forum, Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, Sheffield City Council East Local Area Partnership, the local Primary Care Network and St Albans House Christian Community on planning, writing and editing this newsletter, so that we could share useful information and help people connect to what is happening in their local area. As well as updates from Darnall and Tinsley Allotments and The Source Academy, there are good news stories from around our area, along with helpful information from the NHS about the flu vaccine and about Covid-19 symptoms and testing – in a number of community languages.
Painted Pebble Hunt
To encourage people to get out and about over the winter months, there is also a 12 Days of Christmas MoveMore calendar, and we’ve set up a painted pebble hunt in four local parks. 200 colourful pebbles have been hidden in High Hazels Park, Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, Tinsley Green and Handsworth Community Park. If you find one, we’d love you to take a photo and share it on social media, tagging @darnallwb and using the hashtag #CommunityConnector.
Our top tip for finding them is to search high and low for them – they could be under benches, on trees, below bushes or on playground equipment!
