“Thumbelina”, a lovely Pantomime!

The mature enthusiasm and confidence, clear speaking and good expression of the actors and chorus line, aged between 9 and 18, was very impressive.

The amazing and spectacularly larger-than-life costumes highlighted the effort and work the crew and production team had put into staging Stephen Hill Youth Pantomime’s 52nd production, was clear for everyone to see.Helen D Gill

As the curtain came down on an outstanding example of musical youth theatre, Crosspool Forum chair, Ian Hague, came on stage and presented, producer and organiser, Helen Delaney Gill with the “2019 Crosspool Person of the Year” award.  This award recognises the outstanding contribution Helen has made to Pantomime, going above and beyond to care about the community and consistently giving up time and effort to help others.

New CCTV in Crosspool

As part of the positive initiative and commitment to ensure that the Crosspool precinct remains a vibrant place to shop and dine in Safety, the Crosspool Forum, in collaboration with the police and Sheffield City Council, has funded the installation of a new CCTV high definition night vision camera.

CCTV CameraInstalled in the Crosspool shopping precinct as a preventative deterrent against crime, anti-social behaviour, the high quality of the camera’s footage will make it easier to identify offenders and maximise public safety. Only the police and or the Sheffield City Council will be permitted access to footage from the CCTV system and will only download any footage they deem important enough to resolve a case of crime or an incident of anti-social behaviour.

It is hoped that the new camera will give people confidence in knowing that evidence from the cameras will be readily available to help identify and track offenders.
