North West Sheffield News Blog.
We’ve defined “North West Sheffield” as covering an area extending from the northern edge of the city and west of the A61 (Halifax/Penistone Road and beyond). News from outside will feature if there is a relevance or benefit to NWS dwellers.
My name is Russell Cavanagh. As a qualified photographer and seasoned journalist, I’ll be looking for interesting articles about what’s going on in North West Sheffield. These will be stories from the community, wider issues affecting the area, and occasionally items reflecting what local businesses have to offer. Links to useful information will also be included.
Outside contributions will be welcome! These can be in the form of messages left via the “contact” page – that will be edited into a suitable format – or appear as comments left by viewers and readers against each story posted. Comments will only be moderated so that nothing abusive slips past – and a variety of opinions will no doubt appear! Suggestions for improving the site are also welcome!
I’ll be working as reporter and editor for this site whilst developing and marketing its presence on the web. So a lot of my own investment will go into it. And although donations from readers and modest revenue from business advertisers will be welcome, it will remain free to view.
Look forward to hearing from you!
