Abbeydale Street Trees news
Posted by in
News of a fantastic fundraising cycle ride organised by Sisi, 15, and Hetty, 14, who are pupils at King Ecgbert's (off Abbeydale Road). They have pledged to cycle 12km up and down Abbeydale Road each day - whatever the weather - until they raise £500 to pay for a street tree along Abbeydale Road! 
 
We have raised over 4k now (3.8k on the crowdfunder and the rest through separate donations and t-shirt sales) but there is still a long way to go to hit our 15k target. We are busy hatching future plans but if anyone has any other fundraising ideas please do get in touch.
 
Also our t-shirts are selling fast so if anybody would like to buy one for £30 please send us an email.
That's all for now.
Peace, love and solidari-tree ????

Heritage Open Days Annual Festival
Posted by in

 

Each September thousands of volunteers across the country invite you to experience local history, architecture and culture. All for free. 

This year's festival will take place between 11-20 September 2020

 

Search the event directory here  at https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting

With lots available online, you can explore locally, enjoying some NENG links or venture much further afield.........

For the first time in its history, England’s largest festival of heritage and culture will feature online events as well as in-person activities. Heritage Open Days (HODs) returns in September, thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Uncovering stories, sites, places and people that traditional history has overlooked or forgotten has always been at the heart of HODs. This year people can experience virtual tours and take part in online discussions as well as visiting historic places and green spaces in person. This means visitors can just as easily explore events across England, as those on their doorsteps.

The introduction of digital events marks a significant shift for HODs and its network of volunteer organisers.

Annie Reilly, Head of Producing at Heritage Open Days, said: “The festival is about connecting people so we can share in the amazing stories of the places, spaces, nature, heritage and history around us. The last few months have shown us how online events can bring us together even when we have to remain apart.”

“For many of our organisers, our encouragement of digital events has meant them thinking differently about their activities and trying technology they haven’t used before. The feedback is very encouraging and we’ve had a sneak peak at some brilliant tours and behind-the-scenes experiences”.

Sharrow Covid Testing Centre

New local testing site in Sharrow
 
Key messages:
  • Sheffield City Council is putting in place an additional three new local testing units to make testing easier and more accessible.
  • A site is opening near you, at Alderson Road Car Park in Sharrow.
  • Having a testing site in your local area does not mean there is more Covid-19 in that area than elsewhere
  • Testing sites have been cleared by the government; it is not dangerous to visit one or to have one in your local area.
  • Local GPs are also aware of this testing site.
  • We are aiming to encourage free testing for people in a household where they have any of the below symptoms: 
    • A high temperature
    • A new, continuous cough
    • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • If you develop symptoms then you must self-isolate immediately for at least 7 days, apart from to get tested. Anyone else in your household must self-isolate for 14 days from when you started having symptoms.
  • If you need support when self-isolating you can ring the SCC Community Helpline on 0114 273 4567.  Lines are open 8:45 am to 4:45 pm.


  
How can I get an appointment?
 
People can book free testing online here    (it’s the top result if you google ‘NHS test’)  or call 119 from 7 am till 11 pm for either:
 
  • a drive through test
  • an appointment for a site test
  • or a post to home test
  •  When booking people will be given the option of appointment slots and site details.

     
    What should I expect when I attend a local testing unit?
     
  • The test is free of charge.
  • The swab test takes less than a minute and is pain free.
  • Results from tests taken at test sites are received the next day.
  • Your local GP will also receive a copy of the results.
  • Testing is available for all groups in society, including vulnerable groups and people with disabilities. We are continuously improving the testing service so that testing is accessible to all.
  • Anyone attending an appointment at a walk-through testing site will be provided with guidance on getting to and from the test site safely
  • Book your test online at nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119. Whilst we are able to accommodate un-booked attendance, for reasons of ensuring swab availability and for safety of attendees, we strongly recommend pre-booking.
  • Anyone testing positive for the virus in England will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace to help them track their contacts. This will help people to identify who they may have been in close contact with, protecting others from further transmission.
