Latest Home Office Update: Brexit

The most recent statement from the Home Office says the following:

  • Confirms that the Home Office will continue to look to grant status rather than refuse and in line with the UK commitment to be more generous in certain respects than the draft Withdrawal Agreement, a person will not be refused status under the EU Settlement Scheme because, for example, they are not economically active or they do not hold comprehensive sickness insurance.

The boys were welcomed to the event and took the chance to sing with Robin accompanying them on guitar. The organisers of Sheffield music services were delighted to hear the songs and meet the boys. Plenty of applause and a photo with Sheffield Magic Magid, the Lord Mayor.

Well done everybody involved.

“HOME” Poetry Video by Roma Futures

Roma children in Sheffield came together for a poetry workshop, facilitated by Coco Neal. The poetry written was centered around the theme of “Home”.

For many of the children involved it was their first time writing poetry. The film was entered into the Travellers Times Poetry competition which is part of the GRT History month.

Greentop’s CircUs! neighbourhood project

Greentop Community Circus based in Grimesthorpe, Sheffield, have worked with the Roma community for several years now offering places for local children in their classes.  Terezia Rostas has been instumental in supporting this work.

Terezia: The community and all the team are very sad that the “CircUs” project came to an end after 18 months.  Greentop circus is applying for more funding for the project to continue, probably from September.  The feedback of the children and of the parents was 100% positive and all children have said that they are looking forward to coming back to the circus.  Terezia: Why is that? Because circus makes them feel fitter, stronger and more confident.

Here is the link to a video the brilliant Flycheese made of Greentop’s CircUs! neighbourhood project. All part of the Circus250 celebrations.
