Lydgate Junior School is inviting Crosspool residents to donate chocolates and selection boxes to Crookes food bank in the run-up to Christmas.

You can leave contributions at Cocker & Carr estate agent on Sandygate Road from Monday 14 to Thursday 17 December.

A previous food bank collection by parents and friends of the school collected 662kg of food on one week, enough to make 1,576 meals and feed 137 people.

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 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!)
