Favourite Things: Enjoying best al fresco life in our open air city

John Gibson has lived in Sheffield 30 years now. He completed his legal training at Howells Solicitors, specialising in Criminal Law and has stayed ever since. He became Partner in 1991 and now leads the reputable criminal defence team.

I live in Crookes, with my wife Moira who is now retired. I’m moving steadily in that direction, and being blessed with two granddaughters under two, I’m not going to be stuck for things to keep me amused in my spare time for a while.

If I had to describe what’s best about Sheffield in one word I’d say “open-air”. If you say that’s two words, I’m happy to argue my case – I’m a lawyer after all!

So – although I have a lot of time for the likes of Weston Park Museum, Crookes WMC, Depot Bakery, and Shepcote Lane Police Station, I’m going to go al fresco

with all my choices.

Column: ‘So much hostility to migrants’

I strongly condemn the civil rights abuses that commonwealth citizens who have lived in Britain for decades are currently being subject to by this Tory Government. 
The children of Windrush and others from the Commonwealth that arrived between 1948 and 1971 are currently being made destitute and stateless due to the Government’s hostile immigration policies and this needs to stop.

Northern Lights: Community spirit still strong in our pioneering ‘streets in the sky’ flats

Well the Park Hill Flats or “streets in the sky” as they are affectionately called, are in the news and for all the right reasons. Having had a long family association with them it’s been interesting reading what the national press have been saying. Catherine, my daughter, taught at Park Hill school for a good number of years in the 90s and tells stories of how many of the young people have made it in life, even with sometimes a tough upbringing. Former Sheffield United player Kyle Naughton, now a successful Premier League footballer, is one such example. I served as an MP for more than 25 years for the area and, as a minister, was involved, for good or bad, in having the flats listed in the late 90s. Also, a few years later, convincing Tom Bloxham, MBE, from Urban Splash that the flats’ renovation would be one of the North’s great regeneration projects.
