Its taken a few months, but at last the baby has a name.

The bar at Hagglers Corner on Chesterfield Road opened last year at the quirky venue and events space.

But its only recently that staff have given the bar its moniker.

Now called TAKK, which apparently means ‘thanks’ in Icelandic,

the bar is to be officially unveiled with a naming party tomorrow, Friday April 13, from 8pm.

Those who attend can expect live music from Texas blues and folk singer Rodney Branigan, food from Hagglers grill and a free party until 2am.

Cathedral cup cuts waste

Sheffield Cathedral’s cafe is doing its bit to cut coffee cup waste by relaunching reusable mugs, which cost £6.99 and include a free hot drink.

All refills will then be given 20 per cent off.

Slow cooker course success

A course to teach people from Shiregreen the financial and dietary benefits of a slow cooker has been hailed a success.

Social enterprise Blend has been running the programme of slow cooker courses since January.

Some 20 people have completed the course through Sycamore Heights sheltered housing and Shiregreen Neighbourhood Centre, and it has even helped to reduce isolation as sheltered housing residents came together to cook a communal meal during heavy snowfall.

Sweet like chocolate event

Five courses prepared with the ultimate comfort food - chocolate - will be on offer at a special tasting evening at The Broadfield pub. Itis part of the pub’s supper club evenings and takes place on April 17. A £5 deposit per person is required to book.
