As you may already know, Grow Sheffield is undergoing some pretty massive changes right now.
To reflect these, we’ve changed our front page, and over the coming few days, you’ll see further changes as we add to the new section ‘How To’, then we’ll be changing ‘Resources and Info’ into an ‘Archive’ section to show a lot of our previous articles and past news.
Please bear with us as we make these changes.
Don’t worry: we’ll keep you posted.
It’s not long until the big parade on Sunday 9th April! We are looking for people who can help us out on the night by volunteering in one of these roles:
– EVENT SET UP ROLE
Further details about the what the role involve are outlined below – any time you can offer us no matter how little would be greatly appreciated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest.
