Keeping your power on
Investments in our network mean the chances of power cuts have reduced dramatically in recent years, but in winter, storms, floods and other extreme conditions can sometimes cause damage to your local power network.

Northern Powergrid make sure the electricity you buy from your chosen energy supplier gets to you safely and, if your power supply ever gets interrupted, we're here to fix things 24/7, 365 days a year... whatever the weather.

We keep the lights on, the kettles boiling and the phones charged for 8 million customers across 3.9 million homes in the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.


Call 105
Remember, if there's a power cut visit our power cut map or CALL 105 free of charge.

We can help you and keep you informed throughout the power cut.


Do you, or someone you know, need a little
extra support this winter?

NENG "through your letterbox"
Posted by in


There have been a few changes within NENG over recent months, which we hope will make the delivery of your EDGE each month and our administration a bit more efficient. You may have noticed that Ken Lambert is now the Membership Secretary, He co-ordinates the lists of members and subscribers and from now on, will also receive and bank payments passed to your local EDGE distributors. 


We are making a big push to encourage more residents to pay their annual subscriptions (of £8 per household/ £5 concessions) to NENG by Standing Order (SO) from April next year. Most people still make one-off annual payments, which means that our distributors have to go round collecting money from you each year. This is very time-consuming for both them and us and occasionally a bit frustrating. Please don’t forget that your distributor and indeed everyone in NENG is a volunteer, giving their time freely to you and their community, so we would all be grateful if you could make life a little easier by making out an SO instead of making separate payments that we have to chase up. 


For those who haven’t already set up a Standing Order, the new Standing Order mandate form will be available from or can be downloaded from our website at . Alternatively if you do on-line banking, you can set up a Standing Order yourself, filling in NENG’s sort code of 30-97-51 and account no 36208368, but please include the reference ‘EDGE and your NAME’ so we can identify you. Please confirm with an email to, giving your name, address and phone number. This will make a huge difference to us and there will be no need to inform our Acting Treasurer, David O’Connell unless you particularly want to speak to him. 


Of course, NENG does much more within our community than just producing EDGE each month. We run Nether Edge Festival; the Farmers’ Market; the History Group (see our new book out this Christmas); Friends of Brincliffe Edge Woods; Friends of Chelsea Park; the delightful Christmas Trees going up at the start of December; new flower planters at the Oxfam crossroads and lots more. If you want to get involved in any way or have any suggestions for what we should be doing, please write to

NENG Spotlight on Community work
Posted by in

In addition to coordinating community events such as the Nether Edge Farmers' Market and annual Nether Edge Festival. NENG is keen to promote the many other organisations contributing to charitable fundraising and community cohesion across out area. This is the first in a new series putting some of the great work that is going on locally under the spotlight. If you've got suggestions for other organisations that we could work more closely with or feature in future please get in touch...

In the meantime, thank you to UKIM for their recent Broadfield Park hospitality during Eid week for the Nether Edge community and here is a bit more information about them....

UKIM Sheffield Centre

The UK Islamic Mission UKIM began in 1962 by addressing the immediate religious needs of the new migrant Muslim community in the UK. From early on, UKIM also worked to educate the Muslim community on how it could participate fruitfully and contribute positively to the moral and spiritual betterment of wider society within which they had made their homes.

UK Islamic Mission (UKIM) Sheffield is a fairly small but very active branch. It has always been engaged in good projects.  Recently for example, a charity walk by two Branch members, Jamil Akhtar and Rizwan Ullah along with Consultant Surgeon Dr Shah Nawaz raised over £1600 for the Northern General Hospital “Vascular Surgical” ward.

Before this there was another fund-raising event for St Luke’s Hospice which raised over £500 towards the Hospice’s work. In previous years UKIM Sheffield worked with local Mosques to raise money for a CCT Scanner for the Children’s Hospital and jointly more than £17000 pounds were raised from Sheffield and Rotherham Muslim community. UKIM Sheffield is also involved in many other projects and initiatives,  Sheffield Climate Change Alliance and Sheffield Emergency Contingency Planning project for example.  Interfaith events are very popular. UKIM Sheffield also provides free literature to develop non-Muslim communities understanding of Islam including copies of English translation of the holy Quran. UKIM are always happy to host interfaith or any other events which are for the common good of the community. If you are interested in learning more, in working with UKIM or suggesting  projects why not get in touch with UKIM Sheffield team who believe in collaborative work and community interaction.  Their Office is 525 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield.
