As you can see, the Burngreave Messenger is back!

We said in October that the funding for the project had run out. However, we have managed to raise funds to produce the first two issues in 2015, and are working to secure longer term funding for the future. We have not been able to replace all our staff but have appointed a part-time project co-ordinator, Amy Palmer, who is working on the production of these issues.

We would like to thank all those who have contributed their time and money to keeping the Messenger going. This includes the Kathleen Hannay Memorial Trust for their donation, our local councillors for our distribution costs, and the many other organisations and individual residents who have shown their support through attending planning meetings, making donations and by volunteering to produce this issue.

Our next issue will be in June, please get in touch if you would like to contribute in some way! There are lots of ways you can help:


We rely on volunteers to research and write stories, take photographs, proof and edit our written content, keep our website up to date, and to take decisions via our editorial committee and management committee. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at or leave a message on 0114 242 0564.


You can donate at or via post to Burngreave Messenger, Abbeyfield Park House, Abbeyfield Road, Sheffield S4 7AT.


We want to know what you think of the Messenger, and so do our funders! Call us on 0114 242 0564 or email us on, we'd love to hear from you!
