Celebrating flying heritage
A new project will rediscover the lost heritage
of military landscapes in Norton and
Meadowhead and how it has influenced the
development of the area over the last century
RGANISED by the Landscape Heritage Research
Foundation – ‘From RFC Airfield to City Suburb – 100 Years
of History at Meadowhead & Norton, Sheffield’ is funded by the
National Lottery Heritage Fund.
It follows on from the group’s successful ‘Norton’s Flying Legacy’
project that took place in 2016 to 2017.
The project develops some of the themes begun in the first project
and also extends the timeline to cover the period from the outbreak
of World War II into the 21st century. It will run over the next 15
months and will delve further into the history of the suburb from the
formation of the WW1 Aeroplane Repair Depot, proposed
development of civil aviation and then explore how the former airfield
site affected the area’s development into a thriving suburb of

record artifacts of the built military environment either former sites
or some that still exist.
A series of workshops will be held throughout the project, each
covering a specific theme which will help volunteers along their way,
piecing together a fascinating local history. At the same time, the
development and growth of the area will be explored by visits to the
local archives, other collections and sites.
The project will also undertake a series of oral history interviews to
add first-hand experiences.
Prof Ian Rotherham of Sheffield Hallam University, who is chair of
the group and oversees the project, said: “This is an amazing project
and public interest in the first phase of the research was
“Since then, we have been busy with fresh information that surfaced
and with local people coming forwards with stories, memories and
memorabilia. This Heritage Fund project now gives us chance to take
the research to the next level.”

will hold a launch event.

ETIRED couple Terry and Audrey Frow recently moved
from Coal Aston to a two-bedroom bungalow in Dronfield.
The kitchen, a hangover from the early days of the 1970s
property, was the first room on their list for an overhaul.
As they had heard “only good reports” about Meadowhead-based
kitchen experts Sheffield Kitchen Interiors, they called in to the
showroom for a chat with Paul.
Audrey takes up the story: “I knew what I wanted from my new
kitchen. I wanted it to be light and I didn’t want any wall units as I feel
that they make a room look smaller.
“Paul wasn’t at all pushy. He listened to what I wanted and then made
some suggestions and within two weeks the work had started.”
The Sheffield Kitchen Interiors installation team completely stripped
out the old, extensively-tiled kitchen - including removing five layers of
floor covering and preparing for the laying of a new floor. They also
arranged for a skip for its removal.
After the plasterer had completed his part of the project, it was time to

The Frows chose painted solid wood shaker doors in a modern light
grey together with a Durapol worktop in white crystal.
Terry was especially impressed by the fact 14ft worktop was delivered
and fitted in one single piece for a seamless finish.
Other stand-out features include a white composite granite sink with
swan neck tap and new integrated hob, oven and fridge.
Audrey said nothing was too much trouble for the fitting team.
“They were smashing, obliging lads. They didn’t waste any time and
we’re very happy with our new kitchen,” she added.
The Frows have complimented the grey units with blush paintwork and
love the room’s fresh, airy feel.

I HAD just finished writing a letter to you when the May
edition of your magazine popped through my letter-box.
I was delighted to find that there was a feature on local
shops and businesses because my letter highlights the
wonderful personal and caring service provided by them and
emphasises why we should support them.
On Sunday, April 15th, this year, we discovered that our
fridge/freezer had stopped working. We had an important
and unavoidable appointment on Monday morning so it was
Monday afternoon before I was able to visit Williams
electrical store on Woodseats.
I spoke to John, the store manager, who was very helpful
and I came home with brochures and information to help me
choose a suitable replacement fridge/freezer.
On Tuesday morning, I returned to the store and spoke to
John again. I know that every potential customer will want a
replacement fridge/freezer to be delivered as soon as
possible but I explained to John that, in our situation, it
really was a matter of urgency.
My son, Matthew, is recovering from treatment after
becoming seriously ill in 2017. He has had several operations
and a course of intensive radiotherapy. Over the past two
years he has had various complications and has had to take a
lot of medication. Every evening he has to inject himself with
a medication which has been stored at the correct
temperature, which meant he was unable to use it. It was
imperative that we obtained a new fridge as quickly as
possible so I could order a new batch of medication for him.
As soon as I explained to John about the refrigerated
medication, he leapt into action. First of all, he said that they
would deliver a counter-top fridge from their store for me to
borrow until everything was sorted. My new fridge/freezer
would have to be fitted into existing kitchen units so his
fitters would come later that day to take precise
measurements. He explained that they were very busy and
had a full schedule but they would definitely visit, even if it
was after working hours.
True to his word, I received phone calls from the fitters
that afternoon to reassure me that they would come to our
house. At half-past-six, they arrived! They brought the
counter-top fridge with them which they set up and then
measured the area where the new fridge/freezer would be
fitted. One of the fitters mentioned he was going to work out
the exact dimensions at home later that evening to ensure
the new fridge/freezer would be a perfect fit for my kitchen
The next day, I was able to arrange for a new batch of
Matthew’s medication to be delivered. Problem solved!
Then these wonderful people phoned me to let me know
that they would be abe to come on Friday morning - Good
Friday, a Bank Holiday - to deliver and fit the fridge/freezer.
They arrived as promised and, with the minimum of fuss
and disruption, completed the job, taking away the old
fridge/freezer and all the packaging.
It’s so reassuring to know that there are such wonderful,
caring people living and working in our area and offering a
service that can only be found in a family-run business.

Race is on for schools
A litter-pick and a 10k run
brought a little-known corner
of south Sheffield to life
EWFIELD School hosted Sheffield's
first Cat Lane Canter on a wet and
windy morning, raising more than £2,000
for local schools.
The race was organised by parents of
Carfield, Meersbrook Bank and Newfield
schools and more than 185 runners
entered, including Louise Haigh MP.
Winner Chris Bevan managed the 10k route
in 37 minutes. A local dad, Al, won the 5k
and there was also a 2k fun run.
The hilly race took people through one of the
city’s hidden woodlands, along the Meers Brook
through Lees Hall, Hang Bank and Cat Lane
woods, looked after by Gleadless Valley Wildlife
Trust. More than 30 local people marshalled in
the bluebell-carpeted woods.
Prior to the event, litter picks had been
organised, supported by Irene from Sheffield

regularly cleaning up the woods and the
surrounding area. Good Gym and the local

Graffiti - the scourge
There is one form of anti-social
behaviour that is highly visible and that’s
graffiti. In recent months, people living
and working around Chesterfield Road,
in Woodseats, can’t fail to have noticed a
huge increase in ‘tagging’ – the stylised
scrawling of names. Deborah Wain
reports on the issue and asks what
authorities are doing to tackle it
OODSEATS has witnessed an explosion in
graffiti in recent months – on its community
and commercial buildings, signs, utility boxes and
other street furniture.
Work of the likes of Banksy it is not. Most of it is
It is a source of frustration and concern for local
residents and business people, some of whom have been
Donna Eales, owner of Gifts & More, said her shop had
twice been tagged on its shutter.
She said: “It is hard to remove. There is a camera and
that doesn’t seem to have deterred whoever is doing it. I look out at
the old HSBC bank across the road and it’s a lovely old building and its
windows are covered in graffiti.
“It’s such as shame because Woodseats is such a good, busy
community and you don’t want the area to look like it’s downtrodden.”
Staves Estate Agents has also fallen victim to graffiti twice within the
last few months, despite having security cameras.
Director Matthew Staves said: “Woodseats is a vibrant and happening
place with an excellent mix of shops, restaurants and cafes, including
a new sports bar and wood-fired pizza restaurant, which are both
excellent additions to the S8 area.
“It really feels like we are on the cusp of something really good in S8.
However, the fly in the ointment is the graffiti which can be found

“It is a real shame that the efforts of many businesses, who are
working hard and are trying their best to ensure the presentation of the
shop fronts and collectively the shopping area as a whole is at its best,
are being spoiled by this anti-social behaviour.
“We need a collective effort from business owners, residents and the
authorities to try and tackle this problem so that we can all enjoy the
wonderful things Woodseats has to offer.”
Woodseats resident, John London, added: “God only knows where it is
coming from and who is doing it but it’s appearing everywhere and is
“It's not as though the area is a poorer one in the city, it is much
sought-after property-wise, so is it people from outside our lovely S8
area that are doing this or is it the next generation of locals?
“I can only assume that if it is locals then they weren't brought up
like me. I was brought up in Beauchief, lived in Greenhill and now
claimed the barriers had
successfully reduced the number
of traffic collisions at the spot
from nine in the five years before
the barriers went up, to five in the
five years after, although figures
were not provided for the most
recent five years.
James explained: “Although
unfortunately some minor
accidents do still exist, the rate of
accidents has halved since the
implementation of the barriers.
“Due to this, I am sure that you will concur
with the authority’s approach not to remove
all barriers at this stage. We will remove the
sections for which we feel will not
exacerbate the current accident rate.”
He added: “Within this financial year we will
be investigating possible design solutions in
an attempt to reduce the current accident
rate at the Bowshaw roundabout.”
James also said that remaining vandalised
panels would be replaced with the
reclaimed panels in a good condition. Work is
expected to be undertaken before the end of
of Sheffield 8
Woodseats, and have never once thought about spraying any building, sign, or shutter with
“Surely these people will regret this one day as it serves no purpose whatsoever. Like my old
dad used to say, 'If the only mark you can make on society is your name on a toilet wall then
you haven't amounted to much in your life'!”
People caught causing graffiti can be prosecuted under the Criminal Damage Act 1971. They
can be fined or imprisoned or both. Offenders can also be prosecuted for going equipped to
cause criminal damage.
Under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, amended by the Clean Neighbourhoods and
Environment Act 2005, minor offences can be dealt with by a fixed penalty notice. The same
legislation also empowers a local authority to issue clean-up notices to owners of street
furniture to remove graffiti and if the owner fails to do so with 28 days the local authority can
do it themselves and send the bill to the owner.
Insp Colette Fitzgibbons, of the Sheffield West neighbourhood policing team, said graffiti had
become a problem stretching along the A61 corridor from the city centre out to Woodseats.
She reported that a man had been charged with criminal damage on New Year’s Eve in
connection with a city centre offence, but is thought to have been responsible for tagging
along the Woodseats corridor.
She said another man has been interviewed about offences in Woodseats. This case is
currently with the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision on whether charges will be
brought, as other offences are involved.
Insp Fitzgibbons added that as a result of her and a colleague covering the city centre
flagging the problem up, the issue of graffiti across the city has been taken to the
Performance Planning and Resources Group, which sits under the Community Safety
Partnership. The aim is for the matter to be addressed with a partnership approach.
She said: “Graffiti is a very difficult crime to detect as it happens very quickly – you have to
catch someone in the act and it is rare it is reported while it is actually happening.”
However, she urged anyone with information about people responsible to contact her team
by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile Amey, which operates the Streets Ahead highways maintenance and
management service across Sheffield, will remove graffiti from council-owned property and
private houses with the owner’s permission, but not commercially-owned properties.
Ian Ashmore, head of environmental regulation at Sheffield City Council, told Active8:
“Unfortunately, graffiti remains an issue across many areas of Sheffield and we continue to
work with our partners and local policing teams on initiatives to prevent repeat occurrences.
“When graffiti on the highway is reported to us, this will then be removed by Amey within the
timescales set out within the Streets Ahead contract. However, graffiti on private land or
business premises is the responsibility of the land owners, who are encouraged to report this
criminal act to the police.”
Councillor for Graves Park, Sue Auckland, who was recently re-elected, took up the issue
earlier this year with Liberal Democrat colleagues.
She said they had contacted the Passenger Transport Executive and utility companies who
had taken action to clean up property, along with the council, but it had re-appeared.
“It’s such a dreadful blight on the area and unfortunately people clear if off but it comes
back. Even the play equipment in Graves Park has been affected again,” she said.
Coun Auckland stressed that councillors were keen to work with all interested parties,
including local businesses and MP Louise Hague, to tackle the problem.
She encouraged people to report graffiti on 101 or through her on 07500768363 and she
would pass on information to the relevant bodies. A walkabout of the area is also being set up
for councillors to learn more from council officers about work going on to tackle graffiti.

colourful piece of street art.
Wendy Zealand, who lives on the
Chancet Wood estate and is a

Association, took action over
unsightly daubings on the wall on
Roxton Road. She raised £1,200 in
grants through the TARA and the

ward pot to pay for the project by
local artist Casper Kennedy Carr.
Roxton Road links Chancet Wood
with Meadowhead and is a busy thoroughfare for residents.

“That’s why I’ve been working with the local
police, councillors, businesses and the Double

“We've been sharing ideas of how we can

well as assisting the police, I’m keen to support
diversionary activities in the community, which

updated on our progress and if you want to be

the Double Six club at Woodseats, which hosts regular activities for
young people, but budget cuts have forced many youth centres to
cut provision or close completely.
In response to cuts from central government, local authorities
have reduced spending on youth services by 70% since 2010 and,
as a result, 600 youth centres closed between 2012 and 2016.
In my role as Shadow Police and Crime Minister, I know that
these services and support networks stop vulnerable young people
from falling prey to criminal activity and prevent exploitation by
organised gangs. Unsurprisingly, areas that have suffered the
biggest surge in knife crime have also seen the highest budget
cuts to youth services.
The last nine years of austerity have undermined our public
services and made it much more difficult for people to receive

Do you remember using corner shops such as this one
at the junction of Derbyshire Lane and Scarsdale Road?
EERSBROOK will be the location of a time-travelling
corner shop for a new series of the successful BBC2 show
‘Back In Time’.
A TV crew will be in the area this summer, recreating what a shop
would have looked like in the decades between 1900 and 2000.
They are asking local people for their memories and photographs
from shops in and around Derbyshire Lane, at Meersbrook.
The series is presented by Sara Cox and historian Polly Russell
and will air in 2020.
A spokeswoman for the production company, Wall to Wall, said:
“The producers of ‘Back in Time’ are looking to speak to local
people who have memories of the shops in the Meersbrook area
from 1900-2000. Do you have recollections of the shops in

LANDMARK event that saw large-scale council estates
spring up across Sheffield is being celebrated this
summer and the council wants people’s memories and
photographs for a celebration.
The 1919 Addison Act enabled local authorities to develop new
housing for working people. It followed a speech by Prime
Minister Lloyd George as British troops returned from The Great
War, calling for “a country fit for heroes to live in”.
Sheffield embraced the challenge and new housing quickly got
underway on the Norwood estate, followed by the estates at
Walkley, Woodhouse, Handsworth, Wadsley, Brushes, Stubbin and
Residents are being asked for their stories and old photos of life
there for an event at Sheffield Town Hall.
Coun Paul Wood, cabinet member for Neighbourhoods and
Community Safety said: “Since the beginning of council housing
there has always been a need for an affordable, safe and warm
home and we’re proud to still be providing housing like this for our
tenants and residents.
“We will be continuing to build new council homes in the future
as well. There are lots of stories out there about Sheffield’s first
estates and we’re looking forward to hearing about people’s
impressions and what they meant to them back then.”
Photos can either be dropped off at neighbourhood offices or at
Sheffield Town Hall reception where a member of staff can scan
them in and take a few details about locations and dates. Photos
and memories can be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org or you could send them to us

SHE enjoys a long soak in the bathtub. HE prefers an invigorating
shower. BOTH are thrilled with their new bathroom
ORTON’S Kay and Andrew Parry found the inspiration for their new bathroom from local specialists
The couple were embarking on a complete overhaul of the bathroom they inherited when they moved
into their period property four years ago.
Their plans included a new ceiling and stud walls and they were keen to make the most of the space.
Their builder recommended they visit Graham’s London Road showroom to utilise branch manager James
Broomhead’s design know-how, and for its fantastic selection of quality products.
As it turned out, the Parrys couldn’t have been more pleased with both the service and the fixtures and
Kay said: “We were waiting for a date for our builder Ben to do the work and James was happy to keep the
products we had ordered in their warehouse over Christmas.
“That sums it up; Graham were absolutely brilliant. They couldn’t do enough for us and in terms of what’s
been fitted, everything is spot-on.”
Graham supplied a sleek, curved Tissino Bath which fills within two minutes via an unobtrusive Vitra
designer bath filler. It also boasts a convenient pull-out shower assembly, perfect for washing hair.
Kay, who loves her baths, chose it for comfort too and even tried it out in the showroom before buying!
For husband Andy, who prefers a shower, the bathroom has a Lakes shower with Hansgrohe system,
including a large drencher and second, hand-held shower head.
Vitra was also the manufacturer of choice for the designer WC, at a comfortable height, along with a
concealed cistern from Geberit.
Other touches include roomy furniture from Roper Rhodes - perfect for make-up and other toiletries - and
an HiB mirror with colouring-changing LED-surround.
Graham also came up with a tiling solution, a feature wall from textured luxury Keraben tiles.
Although the Parrys have technically lost inches in terms of the size of the room, the re-design in
conjunction with James at Graham, has meant the space feels larger.
Said Kay: “It’s not a massive bathroom so we were keen to make the best use of what is available.
“We’d read about Graham in Active8 and it was great to have someone we know point us in the right

How Chris Wilder’s early football management
days were featured here in Active8 in 2003
From Bradway to
the Premier League
ANCHESTER City may well have swept the board by winning
the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Charity Shield
trophies, but the best football boss in the land isn’t Pep Guardiola.
That particular 2018/19 honour has gone to the man who honed his
management skills here in the Active8 patch.
When Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder
received the League Managers
Association Manager of the Year
trophy from Sir Alex Ferguson and
Gareth Southgate, we wonder whether
he recalled the days, two decades
ago, when he coached the players of
Bradway FC on windswept local parks
pitches in the Meadowhall Sheffield
and District Sunday League.
Chris, who has steered Sheffield
United into the Premier League on a
restricted budget and with players
born only in the British Isles, featured
in the pages of Active8 in March, 2003.
Chris Wilder flanked by
Gareth Southgate and
Sir Alex Ferguson
At that time, he had progressed to manage cash-strapped Halifax Town
in the Nationwide Conference, but he was still linked to the local area
where he and dad Paul ran the old Bradway pub.
“I enjoyed my career as a player and I’m ambitious to do well as a
manger,” Chris told Active8 editor Mike Firth.
“Everyone should aim for the top and I know that if I can turn things
around at Halifax then people might just sit up and take notice of me.”
Sixteen years on, that is most certainly the case and, to prove it, Chris
Wilder has a shiny silver trophy. It would have looked good on the bar at

My favourite time of year
Active8’s student columnist, Ellie Colton, is on the
lookout for local DJs to offer them time to show
of their skills on her BBC Radio Sheffield show
T’S officially summer this month. No matter who you are you,
you can’t deny there is nothing like being out in the sun,
whacking some music on and just relaxing with a bev, barbecue,
friends and family.
I feel like everything comes alive in the summer and the
beautiful weather and atmosphere usually gives birth to some of
the best and most colourful events on all year.
I am personally a huge fan of DJs and festivals, but regrettably
I’ve never actually been to a festival. I just think
they look amazing and I watch the big ones through the TV live,
wishing I was there.
That’s why, on my show, ‘Hello Friday’ on BBC Radio Sheffield
(every Friday live 7-10pm) we have made sure that the last hour
of our show, 9-10pm, is solely given to a local DJ.
Any DJ who wants their mix played, and the opportunity to
promote themselves, is welcome. We even invite you in, 8:45-
9pm, for a 15-minute interview. You’ll get the chance to sell
yourself right up to the second your mix goes live.
If you’re sat reading this now, you’re a DJ and you want to have
your mix played on BBC Radio Sheffield, then get
in touch with us! You can reach us on Instagram or Twitter
@bbchellofriday and we will get back to you within the day!
Even if you’ve just got a question – hit us up!
We love finding new local talent and giving people a platform to
showcase the creative genius they already are.
Ellie Colton: ‘There is nothing quite like
relaxing in the summer sun’
We appreciate being on the radio can be a bit scary, but coming
on and promoting yourself is what will make you stand out and
gets your name out there.
The mix has to be 59 minutes long to comply with our timings
and contain no swearing or foreign languages - other than that,
you’re good to go! So, come on, be the next guest summer DJ on
the ‘Hello Friday Mix’!

Shape up for Summer
Getting into shape sensibly is a matter of
balancing diet and exercise in just the
right amounts. Jilly Castle explains
UMMER is the time of year when most of us want to wear
some of the beautiful fashions around and look our best in
them. However, we might have to shape up to the challenge.
We all seem to put on a few extra pounds during winter. This is quite
natural. Our appetites increase so we take on board the extra fuel we
need to keep us warm. We also find we have a desire for richer, fattier
foods in winter. Again quite natural, and as long as moderation is
observed and the fat is of the right, unsaturated sort, no real harm is
done. However, as we strip off layers of clothing this summer, we
won’t want to expose those extra inches to the critical gaze of
strangers or loved-ones.
Getting into shape sensibly is a matter of balancing diet and exercise
in the right amounts. First, pop off to see your doctor and make sure
you are fit for both. If you are, you are all set to devise yourself a
programme that will make you not only look better, but feel better as
well. While we are on the subject, that is a point always worth bearing
in mind, how you feel. If you feel at all unwell, off colour or totally
exhausted during a course of exercises or whilst on a diet, stop and
take medical advice. This is essential, after all the object of the
exercise is to feel and look better, not worse.
Diet first. Choose a diet that will fit in with your way of life. No point
going on a diet of tropical fruit it it’s out of season or too expensive. No
point trying to feed a lusty family of rugby players whilst catering for
your daily salads at the same time.
Dietary aids and special slimming foods are all quite acceptable, as
long as you follow the directions for their use very carefully, use them
in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet where recommended, and
avoid the odd binge when you think nobody’s looking. There are drugs
that inhibit the appetite. They are available only on prescription and
most doctors are reluctant to prescribe them. Only in extreme cases of
obesity is it wise to resort to drugs, and then you’ll probably be under
medical supervision anyway.
Exercise is a matter of what you like. Any regular, controlled
exercise will help. You are most likely to persevere, however, if you
are involved in something you like - aerobics, keep fit or dance.
Join a health club or sports centre and use the facilities. Most such
establishments have trained staff who will originate a programme just
for you, and supervise your participation. If you are interested in a
particular sport, join an appropriate club and do the job properly.
A trained coach or trainer will soon get you into shape for full
participation. Always remember though, don’t try to push yourself
beyond your natural capabilities. Everyone is constructed differently,
and we are not all world-beaters or record-breakers!
Once you’ve got into a routine with both diet and exercise you’ll begin
to notice the difference in yourself, and not just on the scales either.
For the first few weeks in fact, you may not show an actual weight loss
at all. You will, however, look slimmer simply because with a healthy
diet and regular exercise, your posture will have improved, you’ll hold
yourself better and walk taller as a result. If your exercise is outdoors,
your skin will start to show a glow of health.
Now it is, you may have to adjust your make-up. You may also find
your clothes getting looser too. Think about getting a range of good
sports clothes for the ‘new you’; they are especially useful for all
leisure activities. They also look their best on the slim and trim.
Once the weight starts to go, there’ll be no holding you, however a
word of warning. Set yourself a sensible weight target and stick to it.
Your doctor will tell you your ideal weight for your build. Unless you
are going to be a photographic model, dropping below your ideal
weight can sap your energy, pull you down under par and defeat the
whole object of the exercise of losing weight in the first place. You
won’t feel well and you won’t look well either.
When you reach your target, start looking at ways of maintaining it.
Don’t attempt to lose a pound or two more. It’s very easy to fall into
the habit of weight loss and that could herald the onset of anorexia,
and other allied diseases.

Actor David Bradley, star of ‘Kes’, is visiting the
area for a special showing of the legendary
1969 movie. He answers Mike Firth’s questions
IME marches on, but can you believe it is 50 years since the
award-winning made-in-Yorkshire film ‘Kes’ was shown in
David “Dai” Bradley played the lead role of schoolboy Billy Casper,
the “hopeless case” whose life was transformed by a kestrel chick.
David is to be special guest at an anniversary screening of the
movie at Staveley Hall on Saturday, 29th June. Doors open at 7pm
and the film begins an hour later. There will be an opportunity to ask
questions and David will also have a selection of ‘Kes’ memorabilia
for sale. Tickets can be booked at bluebirdnorthevents.co.uk
How did you land the role of Billy Casper?
The director, Ken Loach, wanted to use real school kids as opposed
to young professional actors. With author Barry Hines being a
teacher, it seemed appropriate to audition youngsters at schools he
had taught - particularly as they were schools where pupils had
failed their 11+ examinations whose prospects were low and deemed
Pupils from three schools took part in the general audition, and the
numbers were whittled down to around 36. Ken Loach invited them
along for a final audition at the best hotel in Barnsley. Some were
reading for Billy Casper (around five of us), others for the role of
Macdowall (the bully), and various small parts. Firstly, we read the
page scene prior to the fight on the coke, then Ken Loach wanted to
do an improvisation involving Billy acquiring a book from the library -
while knowing he wasn't a member - and how would he go about it.
A few days later, I received a hand-delivered letter offering me the
role of Billy Casper.
How long did it take to film?
For me, it was ten weeks; for the rest of the cast, eight, during school
summer holidays. This was because we needed to shoot the
sequences with the kestrel chicks as soon as possible, due to how
fast they were growing, and nearing first flight.
Also there were far more scenes with Billy, so filming continued
with me while all my school friends went back to school.
What was the reaction of your school pals
when you suddenly became famous?
I guess at the time of filming there might've been a certain amount
of envy, but because many of my mates were involved with ‘Kes’,
nothing really changed in so far as friendship was concerned. We
were all on cloud nine at the prospect of being part of the adventure.
When the film was released in 1970 (all of us having left school),
everyone was friendly and looking forward to seeing it. Thankfully,
it's always been that way whenever I bump into a school chum, and
we chat about the summer of '68. For all of us, it was a moment in
our lives that we cherish dearly.
Were you ever tempted to take up falconry?
Whilst enthralled by birds of prey in the wild, along with many
occasions visiting falconry centres, my professional life as an actor
predominated, and so I never really considered taking it further. Yet
part of me stills feels captivated by these wonderful birds whether
on TV via the odd documentary, or seeing them close up.
Incidentally, membership at the British Falconry Association after
the film was premiered increased by a staggering number, from
hundreds to well over 20,000!
Why do you think the film had such a huge appeal?
I guess because it was so authentic and resonated with young kids
who were so like Billy. Also, it challenged a lot of society issues
during the late 1960s/70s regarding problematic youth, a failing
education system and how youngsters - supposedly with low
prospects - lacked confidence due to disengaged teachers. As a
national newspaper announced at the time: ‘Good teachers will love
it, bad teachers will hate it.’
Parents, too, found it enlightening, and perhaps this helped them
to re-live and understand what it was like for young working-class
kids growing up. ‘Kes’ was part of a huge social revolution, and
reflected so much of the ills during this time; but it also
demonstrated that every kid has some form of talent if one knows
how to tap into it.
Didn’t you once write a sequel to Kes?
On quite a few occasions, I've been approached by film producers
interested in making a sequel, but who never came up with a viable
story. All were predictable and to a large extent stereotypical in
nature; basically the same story with fewer redeeming assets.
I've always felt such a project would be detrimental to Barry Hines'
outstanding novel, as well as Ken Loach's brilliant adaptation, and
short-changing devoted fans.
What do you suspect might have become of Billy Casper?
Who knows? One thing is for sure, Billy was / is undoubtedly a
survivor. And he would've found something meaningful, rather than
accepting his pre-conditioned lot in life.
In spite of the tragedy of losing his beloved kestrel, Billy had an
outsider's instinct to eventually let go and move on.
There's a Canadian poster advertising the film's release in the 70s
that best sums up Billy: "They beat him. They deprived him. They
ridiculed him. They broke his heart. But they couldn't break his spirit!"
Why did you change your Christian name to Dai?
Quite simply, when I applied to join British Equity (the union for
actors), I was told another actor had the same name, and that it
meant they wouldn't accept me without choosing a different name.
The other David Bradley (perhaps best known for his role in the
Harry Potter films), has done pretty well for himself.
I recall when I phoned him back then and asked him to change his
name, because he was unknown, he told me to go away... only he
didn't use that term!
What projects do you have planned for this year?
I am currently working on a project, but alas sworn to secrecy. All
being well, by autumn we'll know if my endeavours have been
It's a new challenge for me; one that has taken up quite a lot of
time. I'm hopeful it will appeal, but I can't say more at present.
Experience has taught me that one should take great care before
making any 'off the cuff' announcement.

Students have fun
making music here
in Sheffield 8
HERE’S something for everyone at AS Music School,
whether you're aged three or 83.
With Early Learners, a method known as Stave House is used with
budding young musicians. It really does promote all round
understanding of music and it's great fun too.
This June, a special Stave House Week is being organised to
demonstrate how this amazing method works, so why not call
along to one of the free sessions and learn all about it? You'll be
singing the songs all the way home if you do!
At the other end of the scale, the adult section at the music school
is booming, with an ever-growing number of groups, one-to-one
students and a great programme of events for musical gettogethers
where you can play, sing and meet others who like to do
There's more interest from adults starting to play instruments
from scratch or singing for the first time in their lives. This is
hugely exciting and shows that more people are realising the
benefits of making music, extending the use of the brain, helping
with memory and so on, not to mention the social and creative
aspects of joining the music school.
So what about everyone in between? Many students are aged
from eight to 18 and this make some fantastic progress through
the music exam grades and also developing performance
Many students take part in the school’s gigs and events
throughout the year.
Some students attend for help with GCSE or A Level, others like to
do it as a break from study. Many students involve themselves with
in play-in-a-band classes where they learn from gigging musicians
what it takes to be part of a band and experience perform in some
pretty cool venues around the Sheffield area.
AS Music School teaches piano, keyboards, drums, vocals and all
styles of guitar and ukulele. It’s possible to take nationallyrecognised
music exams, if you wish.
A bumper exam session is coming up in July and the school also
has two amazing concerts lined up. Students will showcase their
range of talents at The Greystones and the school is also running
an original music challenge where soloists and bands will be
playing a night of wholly original material, written and performed
by themselves. This will be at the iconic Sheffield music venue,
Yellow Arch Studios.

ET us introduce you to a couple who are VERY happy with the service
they received from the specialists at H2O Bathroom Solutions.
Roger and Joanne Gore employed the Meersbrook-based company to transform both
their bathroom and their shower room... and now can’t wait to welcome them back this
month to do the same to their downstairs cloakroom.
The couple have lived in their extended Totley semi for 36 years and, looking forward to
their retirement, they decided the time was right to “future-proof” their home.
They discussed their plans with several companies but were not struck on any of them
until they spoke to the H2O Bathroom Solutions team.
“We were really impressed with them from the moment we walked in,” explained
Roger. “They told us just what we wanted to hear; that they would be able to take on the
whole project from design to putting it all in place, using people who they could highly
“At the showroom, Martin was brilliant, he really was. He listened to the ideas we had
and then developed them into the plans. He sent us emails with images of what the
finished job would look like and also all the costings.”
Fitter Geoff also came in for lavish praise from the couple.
“He was with us for five weeks doing both of the rooms and he almost became a part of
the family. His work ethos was amazing and he
always kept us informed. He was our plumber,
builder and tiler and nothing was too much
trouble for him,” said Roger.
The Gores’ existing bathroom and shower room
were both rather dated but they are now thrilled
with their new “hotel-style” rooms.
The bathroom features a new Kaldewei steel
bath which is super strong and hard wearing.
Overhead is a Hangrohe bath shower mixer. The
bathtub is undrilled and no holes means easier
An easy-to-use multifold bathscreen means the
whole bath is still open when it is folded back.
A Smyle unit from Geberit is a feature of the
room, with a good-sized basin with storage
below and an Omnia radiator which is opensided
for easy removal of towels.
The large, oblong wall tiles are porcelain with a
feature wall of brick effect above the bathtub
and along its length.
The walk-in shower room features include a
resin-textured shower deck, a comfort-height
toilet, an Omnia radiator in Titane colour, an
illuminated mirror cabinet with integrated
lighting and shaver point, a wave sensor switch
and mood lighting.
Both rooms now have low maintenance ceiling
cladding in white woodgrain which means no
more decorating worries - ever. The LED
downlighters feature six fittings per room, using
only 30w of electricity.
Not only are the Gores thrilled with their new
rooms, they have also been overwhelmed by the
company’s customer service which they rate as
“second to none”.
Now they have already selected tiles and
fittings for the transformation of their
