Bereaved Parent Support

Losing a child is very isolating and it makes such a difference to spend time with other parents in a safe supportive environment.
On Saturday 10thJune, to raise awareness for anyone local, the “Care for the Family” national charity is holding a support day at St Marks Church, Grenoside Sheffield S35 8PR for parents who have lost a child of any age or in any circumstance.

This summer, Crosspool Festival is holding a two-day exhibition for the people of Crosspool to showcase their creativity in the areas of Art, Craft, Photography and Cake Making.

Entry Details
Anyone who lives, works, volunteers or goes to school in the Crosspool area can enter and have their submission exhibited. There will be a chance also to win some prizes, which are sponsored by Cocker & Carr Estate Agents.

There will also be demonstrations on Spinning Alpaca Fleece on Tuesday and Lace Making on Wednesday; plus an introduction to Philately; a fun and addictive hobby of stamp collecting. There will also be a display from Crosspool Members of the Sheffield Photography Society.

The Cake Baking and Crafts will be judged on Wednesday 5 July at St Columba’s Church.
