MUGA Launch Event

A new MUGA (Multi Use Games Arena) was officially opening in Charnock on Saturday 19th March. Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Denise Fox, Councillors Karen McGowan and Bryan Lodge and Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts were all in attendance for the launch.


The Friends of Charnock Recreation Grounds were also presented with the Keep Britain Tidy Green Flag Community Award, for the 5th year in a row!


Over 400 people attended the event, and our local Councillors also manned a stall which raised over £75 for the park.


Special thanks was given to businesses which had supported the building of the MUGA, including Viridor Credits, Friends of Charnock, Church Burgesses Trust, Community First Award, JG Graves Charitable Trust and AMEY. Activity Sheffield also provided a climbing tower and obstacle course for the day along with instructors offering sports coaching on the new facilities.

What the Labour Party achieved, lest we forget

We feel the last Labour government achieved a lot whilst in power. This includes:


Low inflation, increased police numbers, reduction in crime, more Doctors and Nurses and thousands of renovated schools.


It also includes:


The introduction of paternity leave, winter fuels payments, increased numbers of teachers and a reduction in the number of homeless.
