Resurfacing work on Whitley Lane Grenoside

27 Nov

Road resurfacing work is due to start on Whitley Lane (from Penistone Road to Church Street) commencing Tuesday 1 December for 2 weeks and there will be a need to close the road in order to carry out the work safely. The junction of Whitley Lane and Elliott Lane will not be surfaced at this time due to planned drainage work. The junction will be surfaced once the drainage work is complete.
Our planned working hours will be between 7am and 7pm Mon to Fri only.
There will be no on-street parking on the roads that we are resurfacing – vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place please avoid parking your car on the road. Our work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. We will tow cars that are delaying our works.
Temporary road signs will also be displayed before work starts, confirming the dates of work and parking restrictions.
Please note that diversion routes will be in place where needed. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
Parking and access arrangements
There will be no on-street parking or vehicle access to properties on the roads we are working on, during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our on-site supervisor know if you need vehicle access to your property for urgent reasons. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause but believe the long term

Code Make Win- the launch of Sheffield’s Digital competition for 9-19 year olds

18 Nov

CODE>MAKE>WIN is making an exciting return for 2016.

The competition, run by Sheffield City Council, sets out to discover the city’s hidden digital makers! After a successful pilot which unearthed and encouraged over 40 young digital makers from around the city the competition is starting again.

Open to three age groups (9-11, 12-16,17-19), the competition runs from the 16th of November to the 31st of May 2016 and is open to working products, prototypes, or new ideas in the categories of software apps, physical computing, and digital manufacturing.

Firstly, we are merely  looking for IDEAS that young people have for new digital products, such as a new App.  ‘Early Bird Ideas’ entries are now open until 15th January, students can simply submit their ideas and five will receive a £50 prize.

Next we are looking for students to develop these ideas into coded digital products and they have until 31st May 2016 to submit these.

Up to 9 prizes of £75 are available, plus a special Raspberry Pi prize. All winners will be invited to our spectacular awards ceremony in July 2016 where there will be the chance to meet games designers and others from the industry!

We have prepared a PowerPoint which you can use to promote/launch the competition Information for Schools page.

Further details on categories, information on how to enter, deadline dates, and T&Cs can be found on the CODE>MAKE>WIN website (http://www.codemakewin.org.uk).  The website also offers online PDF versions of our posters and information flyers which can be sent to students, and these are also available in printed format upon request.
