Mike from Shropshire
What a great site. It's very clear and user friendly. So often websites are cluttered and confusing. This site is not, so well done on good design.

Peaty’s Bike Bonanza

Sun 11 Nov 2018, 10am-1pm, Magna, Magna Way, Rotherham S60 1FD

Previously held at Ponds Forge, this is a marketplace of stalls for buying and sell new and used bikes, parts and other cycling stuff. Rather bigger than the twice-a-year Sheffield Cycle Jumble (last was Sat 27 Oct 2018) because it includes bike retailers and bike manufacturers.

The venue, "Magna Science and Adventure Centre" is between Sheffield and Rotherham, close to the M1 motorway near Meadowhall, on various bus and cycle routes. Easy venue access, parking is free. Tickets on the door: adults £5, children £2.50 (4-14yrs), under 4 free. Eventbrite advance booking includes an "Early Bird ticket (£8) which allows access from 10am.

Reclaim The Power national gathering

Sat 10-Sun 11 Nov 2018, Theatre Deli, 202 Eyre St. Sheffield S1 4QZ

Reclaim the Power is a national network of activists that works with communities across the country to fight for climate justice.

Fracking has started but the movement to oppose this unwanted and reckless industry is blossoming. Three important protesters have been freed because the court said their sentences were excessive, for expressing a firm commitment by peaceful direct action. We can end fracking in Lancashire and fossil fuel extraction all over. Reclaim the Power 2018 national gathering is in Sheffield so now is the time to join. It doesn’t matter whether you are an old or new face, they say, or whether this is the first time you’ve dabbled in activism. This is a key time to get stuck in!

Reclaim The Power meetings use consensus decision making to develop strategies and make plans to take direct action in the name of climate justice. Gatherings are also a space to get empowered, meet new people, and learn from one another.

The venue is close to the city centre, fully accessible, with vegan lunches on both days, and tea, coffee and biscuits. A Solidarity Travel Fund is operated to help people attend gatherings who would otherwise not be able to do so. Please email finance@nodashforgas.org.uk if you need help with the costs of your travel, and try to book your transport ASAP to save money, so that the fund can help as many people as possible to attend. They will also organise for ’crash space’ for people who live outside Sheffield, so that you have somewhere to stay and sleep on Friday and Saturday evening if required. For details and any other questions please email info@reclaimthepower.org.uk or post below.
