The Rise of Totley Rise

'The Rise of Totley Rise,' a book written by Pauline Burnett and published by the Totley History Group, is now on sale at the Dore post office and at the village stores for £5.

The book tells the story of how Totley was named, and how it has grown from a simple mill in 1875 to the community we know today. Well worth a read for people wanting to know more about the area!

Amey Road Resurfacing

Amey are scheduled to start work on road resurfacing, footpath repair and renewal and replacing street lamps in Dore and Totley shortly. Dore is scheduled for September 2015 through to September 2016 and Totley from September 2015 through to December 2017.

The work will not be continuous but carried out in phases. There's a map on the DVS noticeboard on Devonshire Terrace Rd, Dore showing where and when the work is being carried out.

DVS committee members met with our local councillors, representatives from the Council and Amey liaison recently to ensure that Amey is aware of items which we want addressed. We covered highway drainage gullies and road drains (particularly eliminating the River Savage), street lighting, grass verge damage caused by motorists parking on verges, and liaison with residents prior to, and during, the work.

Amey has a liaison officer you can contact: Claire Tideswell - South West Community Steward, Streets Ahead - Streetsahead@sheffield.gov.uk
