‘Kick it Out’
Sheffield United FC v Shrewsbury Town FC
Saturday 19th November 2016
Invitation to design the official poster for the ‘Kick it Out’ game
The football fixture Sheffield United FC v Shrewsbury Town FC has been designated as our annual ‘Kick it Out’ fixture at Bramall Lane. Kick it Out’ is football’s equality and inclusion organisation and for many years the Blades have worked with them to tackle discrimination and to promote inclusion in football.
As part of our support for the day this year we are asking children to design a poster with a ‘Kick it Out’ theme. More information on ‘Kick it Out’ can be found on their web site at http://www.kickitout.org
The competition is open to all children aged 5 to 11. Entries need to be on A4 paper and they can be painted or drawn. They should ideally be in landscape format.
We are looking at posters that remind fans that everyone wants to enjoy the game and that language and behaviour should be respectful.
Our 4 winners, accompanied with an adult guest each, will receive a special invite to the game on Saturday 19th November and will be presented as winners in front of the crowd. The winning posters will be enlarged and printed and used as part of our signage around the ground.
Please make sure that you or parent/teacher puts your name, age, date of birth, home address, contact telephone number and the name of your school on the back of the poster.
Entries can be posted to KIO Competition, Sheffield United, Bramall Lane, Sheffield S2 4SU or can be put in the competition post box in the Superstore.
The closing date for the competition is Friday 28th October 2016.
Any questions can be directed to email@example.com marked KIO Poster Competition.
We are now consulting on the Sheaf and Upper Don flood protection schemes.
Sheffield City Council is working with the Environment Agency on an ambitious £83m investment programme to better protect Sheffield from flooding.
The city flooded in 1973, during the 90’s and more recently in June 2007 causing considerable damage and the tragic loss of life.
We need your views on how we can make sure Sheffield’s homes, communities and businesses are better protected from flooding. This will also help us to build new homes, encourage more businesses and jobs into the city and improve our beautiful rivers for more people to enjoy.
This consultation is open to everyone who would like to comment on the options to prevent flood waters damaging our homes and businesses. You can provide feedback at one of our consultation drop in events or complete our online questionnaire.
We know that our people are our best assets, so we don’t want you to just work for us – we want you to develop the skills you already have and grow new ones.
We make sure you have the freedom to really push yourself, to make a difference to the way we work – and to grow just as fast as we are… or at a pace that suits you.
We are keen to help talented people achieve their full potential and so we have a number of training packages, courses, workshops, mentoring programmes and job coaching opportunities which not only help you do your current role even better, but also develop your skills for future opportunities within our organisation.
What makes our organisation brilliant is the people, and the interests and skills they have.
If South Yorkshire Housing Association sounds like the place for you, we’d love to hear from you!
