TRADERS’ plans to recognise an area of Sheffield as the city’s official ‘Antiques Quarter’ are forging ahead.

Business owners held a ‘successful’ first meeting with the city council and community groups about the proposals for Broadfield Road, Heeley, on Monday.

Now traders hope to develop a marketing strategy, and to apply for permission to put up brown signs directing visitors to the area.

Hendrika Stephens, owner of The Corner Gallery, said: “The meeting couldn’t have gone better.

“It just seemed as though everyone was 100 per cent behind the idea.”

n Further meetings are planned in the coming weeks.
