Adrian Well, the owner of Bamforths greengrocer, sent this message of thanks to local residents: “Many of you know my shop was broken into and burgled last week. Whilst it was a thoroughly unpleasant experience, the kindness and support I received from the whole community was really cheering.
“All of your kind words were really appreciated, offers to help clear up were amazing, bottles of wine (and any other alcoholic gift) are always most welcome!
“Many of you will know that taking on the shop is a big change in my life. The reasons for taking this on are many. The hours and pay are certainly not two of them. But, the support I received has helped me appreciate how much local shops are a bedrock of a community. You’ve made me proud to live and work among you. Thanks again.”
If you see anything suspicious, don’t hesitate to contact the police by ringing 101.
A guided history walk of Crosspool departs from St Columba’s on Tuesday 30 June at 10am.
If you’re interested in doing the guided walk but can’t make Tuesday morning, we would be prepared to arrange an additional evening walk sometime in the next few weeks. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
Meanwhile, Crosspool Chronicles, the guide to walking round Crosspool and reading about the people and places in times gone by, is for now on sale at the price of £2.50.
You can pick up a copy from Crosspool Pet Supplies, Bamforths, Charisma and Cocker and Carr estate agents in Crosspool as well as at the Crosspool Summer Fair (if there are any left!)
Crosspool families are invited to the Out Cow Molly bonfire from 2:30pm on Saturday at Cliffe House Farm in Dungworth.
The free event includes a fire engine which will be giving rides all afternoon to raise money for the fire museum, a barbecue serving Yorkshire highland beef burgers, hot drinks, a Bradfield Brewery bar and of course a big bonfire which will be lit at 5pm.
Cliffe House Farm was originally a dairy farm dating back to 1947. With the price of milk falling, in 2007 the family decided to diversify into dairy ice cream and Our Cow Molly was born.
Our Cow Molly currently supplies its excellent range of ice cream to outlets including Bamforth’s in Crosspool, The Three Merry Lads pub in Lodge Moor and Cream coffee shop in Broomhill.
Close enough to the city centre but with easy access to the countryside – that’s how the Sheffield Telegraph has described Crosspool, Fulwood, Ranmoor and Lodge Moor in it’s latest area focus advertising feature.
Artisan and Catch restaurants, Bamforth’s fruit and vegetable shop and Craft Angels are all included in the piece, which appears highlights only the businesses that have bought an advert on the same page of the newspaper.
