PCC Candidates at Sheffield hustings

The four Police and Crime Commissioner candidates were invited to speak at a hustings event held at the Central United Reform Church on Norfolk Street, and jointly organised by Sheffield for Democracy and South Yorkshire Neighbourhood Watch.

Conservative candidate Ian Walker, English Democrat candidate David Allen, Labour candidate Alan Billings, and UKIP candidate Jack Clarkson all had the chance to speak for five minutes, followed by questions from the audience.

Vicky Seddon, co-ordinator of Sheffield For Democracy said: ‘Rotherham has shown how supposedly democratic structures can fail. This is certainly true of the Police and Crime Commissioner post, and if we have to have this official in this way then we need to be careful who we choose.’

The election takes place on Thursday 30 October, with the count on Friday 31 October.

Duke Street centre gets makeover

Last week, a group of youth from Sheffield United FC’s National Citizenship Service programme embarked on a mission to renovate Duke Street Community Centre in Park Hill. Young people aged 15-17 took up the challenge to give the centre a well needed make over, and during the week took part in various fundraisers to raise money for the project.

The NCS is a government-funded scheme, which is being delivered by several Sheffield organisations including Sheffield United FC and Sheffield Wednesday FC. The scheme offers other programmes around the country every year.
