SI Hallamshire recently visited the Bullion chocolate making facility at the Cutlery Works, Kelham Island in Sheffield. The first recipient of the Rosemary Skerritt award, Sophie Mills, now works at the Bullion factory and invited members of the club for a tour of the chocolate making facility. After the tour of the facility, which included a talk from the owner, Max, we visited the cafe where we were able to enjoy chocolate made from only two ingredients – cocoa from individual areas and sugar.
The Wall Art at the Cutlery Works includes a mural which features The anti-slavery campaigner Mary Ann Rawson meeting former slave Frederick Douglass. Mary Ann is buried in the Zion Graveyard at Attercliffe and SI Hallamshire recently donated to the restoration of the graveyard and sponsored an information panel about the life of Mary Ann.
