The inquiry into the street tree conflict in Sheffield is out, & as epic as the subject deserves. The account of the saga is fair & comprehensive - vindicating the tree protectors - but this para from the overview shows the seed from which it all grew. Image
To those tuned into the #trees around us, it is unthinkable to entertain the idea that trees lose value with age and that a fragile sapling replacing a veteran #streettree is equivalent to replacing a rusted lamppost with a shiny new one.
Much has happened in the last decade to make this mistake feel impossible to repeat anywhere in the UK. I’d love to think that the #TreeCharter has been a part of the change, though I feel the actions & words of the protestors in #Sheffield themselves are the biggest influence.

Looking forward to tearing more about @WildlifeTrusts's 2030 Strategy, and the challenges & opportunities that they face in achieving their goals #NatureSeries
.@KathrynABrown opens her presentation by giving a potted history of The Wildwlife Trusts, going back to their foundation in 1916, through to present day as the UKs 7th largest landholder with 2,300 nature reserves with over 3k staff, 37k volunteers & 900k members #NatureSeries
Brown moves on to announcing the 2030 Strategy - which not only continues to move forward on its founding goals of preserving nature, but also reversing the trend of biodiversity loss, with an increased focus on nature-based solutions to help reverse & decline #NatureSeries Image

The Bishops who have signed the (letter? document?) unnamed (unless it is: "The Church of England's Doctrine of Marriage" full stop), undated document 📄 on Straight Supremist Marriage
On one level, it is nice (?) to FINALLY have CLARITY which is one of the central demands of LGBTQI+ people in the #churchofengland. Tell us where we are Safe. Tell us where we are not. Step out. Be brave. They have been. (congrats, finally)

Following up on @olliehart7 tweets with on @LouHaigh @katejosephs @SouthYorksMayor @roz_davies @markgamsu @simonjduffy @EmmaLatimer3 @gavinNHS w. one concrete example of where we have the capacity to act differently and solve our own problems: #socialcare
[Pls. forgive thread]
We don’t just need to invest in #socialcare - we need to rethink it from the grassroots up. It means combining respect for Disability (ie. Human) rights with creating the conditions for inclusive and supportive communities. In practice this means #neighbourhoods.
We saw with #COVID that communities could self-organise - but the most effective communities were also already organised, networked and their own grassroots architecture. e.g. see this @wearenewlocal blog:…

Filmed over six months in 1987 against a backdrop of industrial closures, high unemployment, & a looming general election, 'On the Manor' is a wonderful documentary snapshot of a #Sheffield community in flux.
At the time, Manor was the site of the country’s largest council house rebuilding scheme. Over 1600 homes would be demolished, but only 500 new ones built, fragmenting and dispersing the community to new homes across the city.
As bulldozers eat their way through chimneys & walls, director Peter Gordon provides us with a portrait of some remaining residents, creating a record of Manor as it really was. A TV show about strength & resilience and a community fighting to survive despite the broken promises.

1. With winter closing in, it's worth remembering that #woodburners affect indoor #air as well as outdoor:
- Can triple PM levels inside the home;
- Can create short-term but intense exposure associated with refuelling;
Our Paper
2. Our study involved households across #Sheffield taking part for us to understand the real world pollution from "eco-certified" stoves over a period of 3 weeks each.
We installed #IoT AQ sensors inside & outside the house. We provided participants with a tablet and dashboard.
3. Led by @Jwheydon, we also tried to understand the social aspect of wood burning during the study, with a survey prior to the study followed by interviewing every household. This helped us understand two main things..

Today we are excited to launch #CollaborativeConversations

A brand new project to build a citywide approach to how we bring local people, voluntary and community organisations and decision-makers together in #Sheffield.
We believe we get better outcomes in #Sheffield when local people collaborate in decisions that affect their lives and create action that really matters.
With funding from @SheffCouncil, we will bring together expertise from local voluntary and community groups, and frontline statutory organisations on collaborative, and we will co-create a common approach for #Sheffield.

I've seen Eddie Izzard live many times, & loved every show. But I'm really not keen on *anyone* who knows fuck-all about #Sheffield or its people being parachuted in (Eddie did *one* year at Sheffield Uni in the early 1980s) - no matter which Party they represent.
Let's have a look at some proud Sheffielders who have made a significant contribution to Sheffield & its people, standing as candidates to be Sheffield Central's next MP.

First up, qualified teacher, solicitor & community activist, Abtisam Mohamed.

It’s been a whirlwind day here in Parliament. We have a new PM now the Queen has invited @trussliz to form a government. A cabinet reshuffle is taking place.

🧵 #SaveDSA #Doncasterisgreat 1/14
My job in Parliament is to promote Doncaster so I have made it my mission to get to know as many MPs as I can. So I’m confident that our City & @DSA_Airport is known to every Cabinet appointee.

🧵 #SaveDSA #Doncasterisgreat 2/14
This is particularly helpful in times of need. @DSA_Airport is in that category. I have written to our new PM on that front.

I have asked her to meet with or write to @olivercoppard to remind him he has devolved powers and he can and should use them to save DSA

🔴#Tortilla | Pese al Paquete Contra la Inflación y la Carestía que promueve el gobierno del presidente @lopezobrador_, el encargado de la #Profeco, #RicardoSheffiel, señaló a #Maseca como la causante de que el producto continué encareciéndose.

#Hilo 🧵👇 Image
@lopezobrador_ 🔴#Tortilla | «En el mercado mexicano #Minsa vende mucho menos que #Maseca, y Maseca se ve que, aunque suba o baje el precio del #maíz, estos ‘angelitos’ nomás saben subirle», evidenció #Sheffield. Image
@lopezobrador_ 🔴#Tortilla | La #harina nixtamalizada es necesaria para la elaboración de la tortilla, y gran parte del precio depende de este producto fabricado principalmente por #Minsa y #Maseca. Image

#Sheffield's use of Trussell Trust food banks has increased by 295% since the #Covid19 pandemic began.

During the same period, the wealth of Britain's 171 billionaires - many of whom donate to the @Conservatives - increased by around £100 BILLION!🤬…
New figures released today reveal #Sheffield food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network provided a total of 104,349 parcels to people facing financial hardship across the city, from 1 April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2022.
The 295% increase compared to the same period in 2019/20 – before the pandemic – reveals that more & more people in #Sheffield are unable to afford the absolute essentials that we all need to eat, stay warm, dry & clean - & the #CostOfLivingCrisis is only just beginning to bite.

Dear @SheffieldStar readers, the transport team from @SheffCouncil plan to spend £20m upgrading the #Shalesmoor roundabout, they advertise it as being a major benefit for all & a business boost but as you'll see, it DOES NOT. The plan missed EVERY SINGLE aim that they set out.
The £20m is likely coming from central government but almost £1/2 million of funds from (cash strapped) Sheffielders was used to develop the idea @Ameyplc are designing & installing it likely causing YEARS of DISRUPTION. I set out to have a look at it all
EVERY aim set out has been missed. It does NOT improve the road layout; it just changes it. Does NOT provide priority for public transport; it makes it HARDER for people to use. Does NOT include more segregated active travel infrastructure;...

1/6 If @BorisJohnson thinks Downing Street is a tip, he should see the conditions that people are living in thanks to more than a decade of Tory austerity in #Sheffield.
2/6 Each and every day, I’m contacted by residents in social housing in conditions like this ⬇
3/6 I work closely with @SheffCouncil who work really hard to bring accommodation up to standard and to make it liveable, but years of Tory cuts have made it almost impossible.

1/12 Much has been reported in the media & commented on by the govt about GPs not offering appointments. I've had constituents contact me to say they've struggled.

So I've been visiting GPs and staff to see what's going on.
2/12 NHS staff worked under huge pressure over the last 18 months, helping us all cope during the pandemic. In fact, it wasn't too long ago that we were all applauding them.

Some GPs in #Sheffield never once closed their doors but all of them now have huge backlogs to deal with.
3/12 A lot of people stayed away from the doctor during the pandemic & as a result they're now turning up with a whole variety of problems that need treating.

People are a lot more ill than they were 18 months ago, and understandably they want to be treated.

Thousands gathered in #Sheffield to welcome Little Amal, a puppet depicting a 10-year-old refugee, who has travelled almost 4,970 miles from the Syria/Turkey border to the UK. ❤

Amal, Arabic for hope, arrived in the UK's first City of Sanctuary by boat.…
