Streets Ahead Pavement Resurfacing Work – Duchess Road

We are due to start pavement resurfacing work on Duchess Road week commencing Monday 12 October for approximately 1 week and need to close one lane of the road in order to carry out the work safely.  Our planned working hours will be between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Please note that there will be no on-street parking during working hours.  Vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.

Temporary road signs will be displayed 5 days before work starts, stating the date of work and parking restrictions on your road.  Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Please note that our schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances.  If we need to make any changes we will update the temporary road signs.

For the latest updates please visit www.sheffield.gov.uk/citysouth or follow on twitter @sccstreetsahead #SAA12.

We appreciate that any disruption can be frustrating and thank you for your understanding whilst these important works are completed

A MASSIVE THANK YOU FROM SHEFFIELD FC U16 GIRLS

Message from Sheffield FC under 16’s Manager – Michael Neville (pictured bottom row far left)

On behalf of everyone at Sheffield FC under 16’s girls we would like to say a massive thank you to the Sheffield City Council for approving our grant of £660 from the local ward pot fund to help us pay for our home games at the Jubilee Sports and Social Club on Claywheels Lane.

Funds are extremely difficult to find when running a football team, there is only so many times you can get to do a bag packing session or run a raffle during a home game and the outgoings for both winter training costs and pitch fees for home games can amount to around £1,700 for the season.

The Sheffield FC players have been great in the past at raising money for our club and we will continue to do so this season, but the funding we have been successful in gaining from the Sheffield City Council will now place us in the best financial position we have ever been in and we are truly grateful for this.

At times girl’s football can be overlooked in relation to boy’s football by means of finances and support. We at Sheffield FC aim to build a legacy of girls football within the Sheffield 6 area to continually introduce and develop girls football teams from a young age and take them through to the under 18’s and onwards.
