Welcome to nortonlees.org.uk, a non-profit-making website designed to promote the interests of local residents and to promote the Norton Lees Residents Association (NoLRA). We aim to include information about all aspects of the estate, so please get in touch if you’ve got something to contribute. If you have bright ideas or (even better) some time and energy, please get in touch!
The Museums Sheffield website has a painting of the former Lees Hall in its archives. As someone who has been interested in the site (below Newfield school) for many years, I’ve been unable to work out where or when this painting was made. It looks like the Hall, but there are many buildings I didn’t know about and the road is certainly in the wrong place. Compare it
with this photo from the 1950′s. I can’t match the two at all. MS don’t know who the artist was either, whhch is a shame.
Tenants of the allotments behind Bishop’s House have formed a small group to represent their interests and to discuss how to help growing on the site. If you have a plot there, please visit their site and join in. They hope to sell on local produce at some stage later this year.
Ian Stubbs, Inspector South SNA writes: “We have seen a significant number of boilers stolen from unoccupied council properties in the last couple of weeks. Could I please ask everyone to be vigilant. If you see someone entering a property you know to be unoccupied then please ring 999 so we can check it out. Also if you have any information about where ths boilers are being taken please again let us know in confidence.”
NoLRA are in need of a volunteer treasurer. The work involved is pretty minimal, although we’d obviously expect you to attend the (infrequent!) meetings. If you’ve got spreadsheet skills and would like to help us out, please get in touch.
I’ve decided to revamp the site using wordpress, hopefully to encourage local grops to post and update their own pages. If yo’re interested, please get in touch.
