  1. Hello, There are loads more details about the proposals here. They include public toilets, sports centres and arts budget: http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002907029/council-budget-plans%3A-more-cuts-%26-new-charges-%E2%80%93-but-council-tax-frozen-AT-sheffield-sheffield-town-hall/
  2. Up to half of the city's libraries could close unless community groups come forward to run them. It's part of £50m of budget cuts the council are having to make. http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002907026/library-closures-loom-as-council-appeals-for-volunteers-AT-sheffield-sheffield-town-hall/

  4. Sheffield NHS bosses are set to remove funding for male circumcision for non-medical reasons. But there are fears that people could have "backstreet operations" if the procedure is not available on the NHS.

  6. Sheffield Council’s Cabinet yesterday voted to scrap free bus passes for up to 1,000 children attending church schools in the city. But the city’s councillors still have their own free bus passes, city centre parking permits and have their other travel costs picked up by the council. http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002805310/councillors-scrap-bus-passes-for-church-schools---but-keep-their-own-AT-sheffield-sheffield-town-hall/

  8. Residents in Nether Edge are worried about plans for a "crisis house" for people experiencing mental illness. They have sent in 40 objections to the plans http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002794610/fears-over-%22crisis-home%22-plan-for-mentally-ill-people-AT-sheffield-thornsett-road/
  9. All 36 children’s centres in the city are being declassified as Ofsted-registered centres and instead reorganised into 17 children’s centre ‘areas’ as part of council efforts to save £3.5million. Up to 50 people could lose their jobs and 20 childcare providers will lose funding. http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002772211/%27heartbreaking%27-overhaul-of-sheffield-children%27s-centres-announced-AT-sheffield-sheffield-town-hall/

  12. Ranmoor Parish Hall is going for sale at auction later this month. Sure a lot of people have fond memories of it - from what we can remember, it housed Guides and a youth club in the 1980s, was a polling station for quite a while then became a soft play centre in 2008. http://postcodegazette.com/news/9002685596/ranmoor-parish-hall-on-sale-at-auction-AT-sheffield-ranmoor-road/
