NW Sheffield News visited the “Positively Stannington” event held today at Lomas Hall.
Sports activities, raffles, music and nearly two dozen display stands set up by community groups and other organisation all contributed to what many attendees will surely agree was a successful community-building occasion.
NW Sheffield News took the chance to speak to several groups, all of whom were very enthusiastic about publicising their recruitment drives and future events through our pages (for free!). The positive attitude and warmth of those generous people giving up their own Saturdays to speak to a considerable number of local enquirers was both heartening and impressive.
Oh, and delicious free food and refreshments were available – bhajis and pork pies being NWS’s favourites.
Best quiet observation of the day was the little girl making a Mother’s Day card with the help of one of the stall-holders.
Every community should have more days like this. 😎
