Well done to all those involved in making last nights Bonfire another great event on Tractor Park (Dyke Vale Road). It was good to see so many people of all ages come together from the local community to enjoy this. Councillor Karen McGowan said “I was informed that some of our young peoples aged between 11 and 12 years old helped to dig out the fire pit, it was great to see everyone enjoying the jacket potatoes and soup provided by Snax Shack a local business on Main Street”. The plans for the site were displayed at the venue last night by Living with Nature if you would like to take a look please see http://www.wildsheffield.com/node/3571
Living with Nature is a three year programme, funded by the Big Lottery, focussing on improvements to sites on Sheffield Homes land, which are all currently identified as Play Areas (although many have had old equipment removed in recent years). This is a partnership which involves Wildlife Trust for Sheffield & Rotherham, Sheffield City Council, the University of Sheffield, and Sheffield Homes.
The greenspace at the junction between Dyke Vale Road and Carr Forge Road is a designated play space, managed by Sheffield Homes. It is being re-developed to provide better and more exciting play opportunities, high quality public greenspace for all and improvements for wildlife and nature.
