Friends Outing to Sheffield

David and I have been again to Sheffield to check all is in order for the visit to Kelham Island Museum and the Cathedral on 28th June. The Cathedral is a delight. Sheffield’s oldest building recently refurbished and renewed in a most interesting and sympathetic way with visitors made most welcome. We enjoyed the liturgy and music of the 10:30am Eucharist and felt part of their church community for a short while during coffee following the service. The Cathedral has many points of interest which we will be shown on our tours. At Kelham Island Museum you can experience the atmosphere of Sheffield’s industrial past, encounter buffer girls, little mesters and find out how steelmaking has changed over the years. Along the way you will uncover how Sheffield grew from a rural village into the steel city. There is much to see and learn with places to sit and rest as you go. For lunch The Steam Hammer Café serves a choice of soup, quiche, sandwiches, paninis, salads, a ploughman’s lunch and a vegetarian platter, hot and cold drinks. Details of the outing are on the posters and the sign up list is on the table near the South door. A few seats on the coach remain. Don’t miss out on an interesting day’s outing. Beryl and David Kirtland.
