If you happen to be in the Crosspool precinct over the next two or three weeks, have a look in the right-hand window of GT News.

You’ll find a display of pictures painted by year six children at Lydgate Infant School.

Although they are all commendable, your choice will be decisive in determining the winner of a competition to find the best. You can record your favourite with the GT News sales staff.

The child with the most votes by the 4 January 2012 will be presented with a £20 voucher.

Crosspool businesses open despite major snowfall

Shops and businesses in Crosspool opened this morning despite what the council is describing as the deepest December Sheffield snowfall for a century.

The photos below were taken just before 9am this morning, and show Philip James butchers, GT News, Spar and the greengrocers all open for business. MG Mosley & Sons milk float was also out and about making deliveries as normal.

Local community spirit was also in evidence, with residents assisting with the clearing of snow and making trips to the shops to pick up supplies for neighbours. With the local schools all closed today (Wednesday 1 December 2010), children are also making the most of the snow with sledging and snowballing.

People are being encouraged to only use cars if absolutely necessary and also check that elderly neighbours are coping with the conditions.

Travel South Yorkshire advises that bus services have been suspended until further notice.
